Britain's plan for bringing legal independence to Rhodesia falls short of satisfying the Ca- nadian government, Enter n a I Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said Wednesday in Ottawa. But in a cautious statement to the Commons, Mr. Sharp ex- pressed hope that some of the plan's potential shortcomings will be overcome and that the will of the black Rhpdesian ma- jority mil be satisfied. The scheme was made public last week by Sir Alec Douglas- Home, Britain's foreign affairs minister, who said it would move Rhodesia towards major- ity rule and racial equality.

"We hope the international community will join us to con- vince Israel to talk with Dr. Eiad said in an in- terview on the NBC Today pro- gram. Quebec's English language jniversities do more than sim- ply serve the province's minor- ity, says the chancellor of Sir George Williams University in Montreal. C. F. Carsley told the annual fall convocation at Sir George that "Quebec has a rare oppor- tunity to be a world leader in many areas of academic excel- lence" because of the quality of its universities in both lan- guages.

(CP) Two float planes moored on the Thunder Bay waterfront were damaged recently when a 60-mile-an-hour gust of wind picked them up and tossed them ashore, one on top of the other. DETROIT (AP) Members of state legislatures across the United States introduced bills dealing with automobile problems this year, trying to improve everything from high- ways to headlights. The record-breaking total of state proposals was in addition to numerous bills introduced in Congress and to recommenda- tions from the National High- way Traffic Safety Administra- tion. There were no figures avail- able on the number of bills which passed. A spokesman for the Automobile Manufactur- ers Association, which keeps track of s u c h legislation, said the proposals covered every thing from cars themselves to environmental problems and lit- tering. Many cf the bills introduced in the various legislatures dealt with the same subject. For ex- ample, legislation offered in 25 stages dealt with IJic problem of how to dispose of abandoned or junked vehicles. Bills deal- ing with the ability of bumpers to withstand damage in a minor impact were introduced in 37 states. One area that came in for scrutiny in m a n y states was that of compulsory motor vehi- cle inspections. With the enact- ment of a bill in Iowa, the num- ber of s t a t e s requiring such checkups rose lo 31. New Jersey came up with the toughest state law in this field. Effective in 1972, it requires that every car in the state have a pollution test. Those drivers whose cars fail the test will IK Riven a two-week grace period to correct the trouble. If they don't fix the defect, their cars will be ordered off the road. New Jersey authorities are reported to expect about one- third of the state's 3.3 million cars to fail the test. Another area which tackled the auto pollution problem was New York City where Mayor John Lindsay signed into law Aug. 20 a tough new city air pollution code aimed at bring- ing sulphur dioxide levels down to federal limits by 1973, two vears ahead of the federally mandated timetable. California already has a law with tougher anti pollution standards than the federal gov- ernment. The question of regulating or eliminating lead in gasoline came up in 15 states, while 26 saw legislation introduced which would establ i s li limits or authorize officials to set such limits. Georgia came up with one of the toughest anti-pollution laws, cracking down on cars and trucks which smoked up the highway. Bob Collon, director of the state's air quality control di- vision, said the new law wil' "get the worst offenders off the road." Thursday, December 2, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 21 Ilouseluiihlcrs pep economy lending institutions EO prepared lo give financing commitments lo construction across the coun- try as they arc this year." Mr. Sliipp advocated getting the housing industry away from seasonal ups and downs. "I think the problem is the housing market has been gen- era! ed by a deficiency in Ihe finrncial structures of this na- tion which has created a Cycli- cal seesaw in the provision a' money to people." CALGARY (CP) The hous- ing industry is doing ils part to offset any slump in Ilia eco j nomy, says Harold Shipp.; president of the Housing and Urban Development Associa- tion of Canada. "I (hink we can do a pood, expanding he told about 150 persons at a meeting Tues- day of the Calgary Home Builders' Association. "I would predict we can do in excess of housing starts by 1873, rather than the one million starts set as goal by the Economic Council of Canada. He said 1971 would be a good year for the industry with about housing starts made, "because of the great impetus given by the private sector as- well as continuing involvement I by our federal housing policy."
