LJLXJ' T union representation for em- ployees of the Eastern Irriga- tion District near Brooks, Jim Murrie, regional director of the Canadian Union of Pub- lic Employees for Alberta and British Columbia, said the de- cision has opened the collective bargaining door to "many more such workers." He said it marks the first actual commercial farming en- terprise which his union has been successful in organizing in Alberta. The district covers 1.2 million acres and is the largest of 14 in the province. It employs 91 persons and is operated by a board of directors elected by water users in tiie area. The board of industrial rela- tions first certified CUPE local 1032 as bargaining agent for 79 East e r n Irrigation District workers last August after inten- sive hearings. Under the Alberta Labor Re- lations Act, farm laborers are not allowed collective bargain- ing unless the board decides they are working for a com- mercial undertaking. Last March, Mr. Justice H. J. MacDonald of Alberta Supreme Court over ruled the board decision, and his ruling was taken to the appeal court by both CUPE and the board of industrial relations. The three man appeal court, In a unanimous judgment, de- cided that the industrial rela- tions board alone had the power to determine whether the opera- tion was a farm or a commer- cial undertaking.

The leader of the demonstra- tion, Rev. Frederick Channinj of New Zealand, got inside an< stood up in the middle of the hall three minutes after the Pope arrived, displaying the words, "No Priest but Thee Jesus Christ" across his chest A woman usher spotted him im mediately, and the police threw him out.

NewStart program succeeds EDMONTON (CF) Alberta fevStart has overcome dissent o make exceptional progress, Jack Shields, executive direc- or of the experimental pro- eet, said Tuesday. The program, started in the all of 1367, was described by fir. Shields in an interview as a search for ways and means of motivating, training and re- raining disadvantaged adults in northeastern Alberta. Projects in Fort Chipewyan and Kikino were doing well, jess progress had resulted at lanvier but recent develop- ments were encouraging. Mr. Shields said Janvier's progress is particularly impor- :ant because a suspension-was necessary early this year when four teachers resigned because of what they described as a "Hostile atmosphere." The program resumed after a month. 'Janvier now has seven new lomes, school lunch programs teve been instituted and the recreation centre there has seen completely renovated." Mr. Shields said confusion surrounded the project, at the end of its first year of opera- tion. Federal funds were with- drawn and protests by Indian and Metis organizations erupt- ed. 'NewStart isn't an Indian or Metis program as such1, but in the area we serve, 50 per cent of the people are under the poverty line and 90 per cent of those are natives." NewStart is a federally-spon- sored program that has been introduced in B.C., Saskatche- wan, Manitoba, New Bruns- vrick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Alberta. Senator Jacques Flynn (PC- his party's leader in the upper chamber, said Tues- day night he'will Introduce at least one amendment to the bill and he expects numerous other changes to be recommended. During second reading de- bate, he told the Senate the bill must allow some method ena- bling persons accused of once being members of the outlawed Front de Liberation du Quebec to prove no are longer as- sociated with the organization. Debate was adjourned until today following a speech by Paul Martin, government Se- nate leader. F Senator Martin said the pro- tracted Commons debate on the bill showed the government's wisdom in not seeking parlia- mentary approval before pro- claiming the War Measures Act Oct. 16. "Had the government waited for such approval, it would not have been able to deal as effec- tively as it did" with the threat posed by the FLQ. OUTLAWS FLQ The legislation, which would expire next April 30 unless ex- tended by Parliament or re- voked earlier by the govern- ment, continues to outlaw the FLQ and retains arrest without warrant or bail and detention without charge as provided by the war measures regulations. But it limits to seven days the time a person can be held with- out charge, c .npared with 21 days under the present regula tions. In other Commons business Tuesday, a government bill was introduced that would increase basic old-age pensions to monthly for all Canadians over 65 and raise maximum supple- mentary payments to from a month. The bill, given first reading, will be debated today. The measure calls for in creases in supplementary pen- sions to take effect April 1 next year. The increase in basic pen- sions would take effect Jan. 1. A bill providing for federal In- corporation o f co-operatives that, operate in more than one province was given third and final Commons reading Tuesday and sent to the Senate. Pave lanes, cut pollution recommends Tollefson CALGARY (CP) A report by the city pollution commit- tee recommends paving of back lanes as a means of re- ducing dust, a significant con- tributor to solids in the urban atmosphere. Dr. Eric L. Tollefson, profes- sor of chemical engineering at the University of Calgary, said in the report the paving would also reduce noise pollution. "Cars travelling over these gravel lanes create dust and cause road noise. The dust un- doubtedly adds to the air pollu- tion problem." The rest of the report was aimed at halting "rapidly de- veloping" air pollution by cut- ting motor vehicle emissions. Also suggested: were: pollution con- trol devices on all new cars of carbon moo- oxide concentrations of vehicles creat- ing excessive pollution of pollution control as a prime objective o! the city number of cars In tbe downtown area study on the effect of high-rise buildings on air flow patterns at street level of a pollution con trol centre. White paper puts squeeze on Alta. says Speaker EDMONTON (CP) "The whole question of assistance to unemployed employables ap- pears to have been left with the Ray Speaker, Al- berta's social development minister, here in com- menting on the federal white paper on income security. The provincial government was anticipating more finan- cial support than seems appar- ent, Mr. Speaker said, addini he will meet Saturday will John Munro, federal healti minister, to discuss the white paper. Mr. Speaker said the Alberta government "fully supports' measures that improve the sit uation of disadvantaged in dividuals, p a r t i c u 1 a r 1 y in creased payments to pension Israel charged with 'criminal act' CAIRO (AP) Egypt charged today that Israel breached' their ceasefire with a "criminal act against unarmed civilians" by sinking an Egypt- ian boat in the Gulf of Suez. The Israelis claimed the four men in the boat were spying and smug- gling hashish. The Israeli military command said an Israeli patrol sanx the Egyptian motorboat last Saturday night off the Israeli- held eastern shore of the gulf. It said three bodies were re- covered, one had documents proving the men were collecting inilitary intelligence, and the fourth man went down with the boat. Cairo radio contended that only "unarmed civilian fishing boats operate in this area." The broadcast denied that the array or the intelligence service had boats there. An Israeli spokesman said the patrol boat Ordered tho Egypt- ian craft to halt as it ap- proached Ihe Sinai Peninsula shore, hut the command was ig- nored. The Israelis Ihen fired warning shote, tha spokesman said, and the Egyptians tried to escape. INCIDENT MOST SERIOUS It was the most serious Inci- dent since the guns were si- lenced along the Suez canal north or the gulf by the cease- fire Aug. 7. King Hussein of Jordan, the third nation that is party In tbe truce, left Tuesday for a fund- raising trip to Saudi Arabia Egypt, Europe and the Unite States. He was flying to Cairo today to discuss his proposal for an Arab summit conference to the problem of Palestinian refu gees. From Cairo, Hussein flies to Britain and then to Washington for a meeting Dec. 8 with Presi dent Nixon. Calgary, Quebec Cily twins complete Hop says Sykes CALGARY (CP) The twin- ning of Calgary and Quebec City has teen a complete flop, Mayor Rod Sykes said here, and unless the concept can be used as more than a public re- lations gimmick it should be dropped. Tho idea which made Cal- gary the "sister city" to Que- bec was adopted with great fanfare several years ago but nothing came of it, the mayor said, Participation by Calgary Ir canoe races at Ihe Quebec Win ter Carnival or an entry by Quebec in the Calgary Exhibi lion and Stampede chuckwagon races would probably improve the relationship. The idea was originated t promote understanding be twccn the cities and "either w make it work or we drop it." "It's no good if it's just a one-day public relations gim- mick."
