"It won't take much for us to say: 'The hell with sell our equipment, and shut 'er says Percy Weighill, manager of Star Taxi. Harold Dyck, owner of Radio Cab, says he started his company last February and is already thinking of closing. 1 "It's almost impossible to get he says of insurance. Mr. Weighill says insurance companies are getting tough about insuring taxis. In some cities, there'have been serious accidents involving taxis, and some insurance companies don't want to touch it. He says the Royal In- surance Group is about the only company that will insure taxis. Insurance was a car a year, and now runs about In some cases it's over he says. One man left the business when his insurance premium hit Mr. Dyck says his premiums were a year per car at first, but rose as cars were added to the fleet. This year, premiums will be a year' or more, depending on the driver. The situation is getting ridiculous, he says. He says insurance should come with the licence plates, operators paying the government when they buy the plates. If the insurance is too costly, or unobtainable, Mr. Dyck says he'll have to go to an owner driver system. Under the fleet system, the company owns the cars and pays the drivers to drive them. If the drivers owned the cars, they would pay the com- pany for dispatching service and get their own insurance. But even owner drivers would have trouble getting in- surance, he says. One driver with a clean record would have to put down, with a total premium of more than he says. Mr. Dyck says Royal is the only company insuring taxis as far as he knows. Most drivers have clean records, though some have tickets for speeding nothing over 40 mph in his or illegal turns. The company has had only two accidents with the taxi at fault since it started up, he says. Job preference rule for veterans limit suggested George Montgomery, an in- surance agent with Schwartz Agencies, says he believes taxis have more accidents than other cars. The carrying of passengers for hire introduces another factor as well, he says. One taxi company had three accidents in a weekend, he says. It's possible to get in- .surance, but it costs a lot (because of the accident rate, says Mr. Montgomery. But some insurance com- panies won't handle any in- surance for taxis, he adds. Many taxi drivers have poor dirving records, and the government is partly to blame for the situation, since it allows them licences, he adds. Jim Fisher, secretary of the Alberta automobile insurance board, says the government body approves insurance rates, though they vary from company to company. Taxi insurance runs "con- siderably than private car insurance because taxis carry passengers for hire, and are on the road for more miles and more hours than most cars, he says. There is more exposure for the insurance company to which the risk is transferred. Mr. Fisher says he's had no complaints from taxi operators about the rates, but isn't a stranger to the subject. Anyone who feels he's overcharged for insurance can complain to the board, he says. The provincially operated British Columbia Egg Marketing Board decision to withdraw from the national egg marketing system is not favored by the Alberta Egg and Fowl Marketing Board. Dave Guichon of Calgary, general manager of the Alberta egg marketing agen- cy, told The Herald from his office Thursday he would like to see B.C. stay with the Cana- dian Egg Marketing Agency to maintain -the unity in the national egg marketing system. While B.C.'s decision to pull out of CEMA early in 1976 is legal because the board gave one year's notice, it isn't right, he said. Participation by all egg marketing boards now in CEMA is needed to keep the national agency operating, said Mr. Guichon. Pointing to 28 million eggs which rotted in storage facilities in Eastern Canada as the event which focused national attention on the national marketing system, Mr. Guichon said he feels the basic philosophy and concept of CEMA is still good for the industry. He said the fact that CEMA has been in existance for less than two years is part of the reason it has had difficulty getting off the ground. This also contributed to some of the problems in egg storage that lead to the large number whicis spoiled before entering the consumer chain, he said. PONCELET Passed away in the city on Thursday, December 5. 1974, following a brief illness, Mrs. Guillemine Poncelet at the age of 97 years of 1108 7th Ave. S., beloved wife of the late Mr. Lucien Poncelet.

She was one month short of her 98th birthday. She is survived by one son, Mr. Emile Poncelet of Carberry, Manitoba; three daughters, Mrs. Emiiie Cooper and Mrs. Rosa Belford, both of Lethbridge, Mrs. Emilienne Gysin of Rathwell, Manitoba; eight grandchildren; sixteen great-grandchildren; eight great-grea t-grandchildren.

Mr. Carson made the suggestion at a special Senate- Commons committee study- ing employer-employee relations in the public service when Stanley Knowles (NDP North Centre) said he would object to removing the preference for veterans. "I was here in World War Two when we assured them that this preference would be Mr. Knowles said. Mr. Carson said that in that case perhaps the committee would consider limiting the Okanagan suspects arrested PENTICTON, B.C. (CP) RCMP have arrested two robbery suspects after an all- night hunt that involved roadblocks on all major Okanagan roads. An armed man held up a Loomis delivery van down- town here Thursday night. The van contained bookkeep- ing records and the man fled empty-handed in a small car driven by a companion. Two hours later, an armed man held up a service station and took about in cash. Less than five minutes after that a car of the same descrip- tion as the holdup vehicle was stopped by police and a suspect arrested. A mask and coat similar to those worn in the Loomis holdup were found beside the car. Police arrested a second suspect today in a local motel. Both suspects are from Van- couver and were to appear in court later today. preferential treatment for veterans to their initial application for a public ser- vice post. The preferential treatment accorded veterans created serious morale problems within the public service because it allowed the veterans, even with minimum qualifications, to move to the "most-qualified" position in any competition for promotion. The digression from the merit principle caus- ed the commission great'em- barrassment, Mr. Carson said. He repeated his call for an end to the preferential treat- ment accorded former armed forces and RCMP personnel, saying it was often unfair that a public servant could work for a promotion for years only to have someone "eminently trained by the Crown" come in and take the job. Armed forces and RCMP personnel get preferential treatment only on their initial application for a post and also have access to competitions within the public service that are closed to the general public. From 1945 to 1962 veterans used preferential treatment provisions in the public ser- vice employment act times, ostensibly most often to gain promotion. It now was time to consider whether these provisions had served their purpose of help- ing rehabilitate these men. 14 dead during Safe Driving Week THE CANADIAN PRESS Traffic deaths across the country Thursday were down from Wednesday's mid week high of 14 with two provinces reporting one fatality each on the fifth day of Safe Driving Week. The two Thursday deaths bring the five day count to 36. Last year, 76 per- sons died on Canadian roads during the seven day period. Provincial totals to date with last year's total for the week: Gas firms say price increasing too slowly WASHINGTON (AP) The price of natural gas is going up in the U.S., but not nearly enough to satisfy the gas in- dustry. The federal power'commis- sion increased by nearly 20 per cent Wednesday the ceil- ing price producers can charge for new supplies of natural gas, retroactive to June 21. At the same time, Interior Secretary Rogers Morton urg- ed Congress to end all price controls on new natural gas before the Christmas holidays. He estimated the end of price regulation would doble or triple current wellhead prices, but said price increases are the best way to conserve energy. In its rate decision Wednesday, the FPC authoriz- ed producers to charge up to 50 cents, thousand cubic feet for gas sold interstate pipelines. That rate applies to gas coming from wells started since Jan. 1, 1973, or entering interstate commerce for the first time since that date. The American Gas Associa- tion said the increase was a move in the right direction but that federal regulation of natural gas prices should be removed entirely, allowing the prices to go as high as the market will bear. It has been estimated that the price would rise to to per thousand cubic feet if gas were not regulated. Senator William Proxmire (Dem. Wis.) said a price would mean that homeowners in Madison, Wis., who now pay a year in gas bills, would be forced to pay Admitting more care should have been exercised in the egg storage program, Mr. Guichon defended CEMA, claiming more eggs than an- ticipated were moved into the storage network. At the same time, market outlets in the United States were closed to CEMA because of pricing factors which contributed to the problem. Regardless of the loss, CEMA should be. given a chance to succeed, he said. Any changes in the makeup of CEMA should be presented to all provincial agencies before they are implemented, he said. But any change to take away the power of the producer to set a price for his product should be curtailed. Mr. Guichon pointed to the success of the Alberta egg marketing board as the poten- tial for CEMA. In Alberta, producers receive more for their jeggs than it costs to produce them, resulting in a profit for the producer and a guaranteed continuity of supp- ly for the consumer. He said it is the philosophy of the Alberta board to main- tain the producer paying price in relation to the cost of production, allowing small fluctuations to be borne by the producer or consumer until such time a major price change is needed. That way, said Mr. Guichon, producers know what they will receive for their eggs when they ship them and con- sumers will know what they will have to pay for them in the retail outlets. That is the reason the B.C. Egg Marketing Board had to increase the price of eggs in that province by five cents a dozen last week, said Mr. Guichon. They were simply raising the price to meet the producer cost-of-production figure. While Alberta producers are making money in the egg business, the Alberta Egg and Fowl Marketing Board has no intention of stopping the movement of Manitoba eggs into this province, he said. Alberta is in a deficit posi- tion in egg production and re- quires eggs from outside the province to meet the needs of consumers. But more egg quotas have been issued to provincial producers to bring Alberta's production closer to the Alberta allotment of CEMA's global quota. Even when Alberta's production moves closer to its requirements, the provincial marketing board doesn't an- ticipate any problems, said Mr. Guichon.

Que. Ont. Man. Sask. Alta. B.C. Total 9 2 9 14 2 36 76 WASHINGTON (AP) No- body wanted to vouch for Charles Colson's credibility as he testified in the Watergate cover-up trial. Not former U.S. attorney-general John Mitchell. Not H. R. Haldeman or John Ehrlichman, his former White House associates. They had good reason. For on his first day on the witness stand Thursday, Colson told of: early suspicions about Mitchell's role in Watergate and of carrying them to then president Richard Nixon. unconcern about John Dean's role in the planning meetings that led to the Watergate break-in and Haldeman's rationalization about the money paid later to those connected with the burglary. sending him to reassure E. Howard Hunt that he had a friend in the White House at a time when the edgy and depressed Hunt was pushing for money and bargaining to stay out of jail. After hearing what Colson had to say, chief government prosecutor James Neal said to Ehrlichman's lawyer, William Frates: "If you're gonna call more witnesses like that, we'll take them all." Frates had summoned Colson from a federal prison cell in Alabama, where he is serving a one-to-three-year term for obstruction of justice to testify about one specific point. But Frates refused to vouch for Colson, as lawyers usually do for their own witnesses. He was adopted as a court witness, making him fair game for cross-examination by all sides. William Hundley, Mitchell's lawyer, asked Colson whether he felt during the Watergate affair that guilty parties "should step forward and ad- mit Colson said yes. "And you happened to think Mr. Mitchell was guilty "That's Right." He said two conversations with Mitchell made him sus- picious. One was a few days before the June 17, 1972, break-in at Democratic headquarters. Colson said he was talking with Mitchell about meetings that were being held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York between Dwayne Andreas, a major contributor to both parties, and Democratic Senator Hubert Humphrey.
