Group to appeal case in Idaho horse roundup WASHINGTON (AP) The Horse Protective Association said Friday it would appeal a court case seeking damages in a bloody Idaho horse roundup. Mrs. Joan Blue, vice president of the said the organization's lawyers also would seek a tem- porary restraining order banning sale of the roundup's surviving horses. Mrs. Blue told a reporter that she had offered Max Palmerof Howe, Idaho, for the 17 surviving horses, and he "laughed in our faces." Mr. Palmer was awarded control of the horses in an Idaho state brands inspector decision sustaining the rancher's claims that the horses were privately owned, not wild. An association suit, seeking million in damages from several federal agencies and challenging the ownership decision, was dismissed Monday by U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Flannery. Mrs. Blue said the appeal was spurred by Palmer's "threat" to sell the surviving horses for dog food. Some 60 horses were rounded up in the Lehmi Moun- tains in February 1873, with several falling or being pushed from a cliff, others having their throats cut or legs sheared by chain saws, according to court records. Judge Flannery said the roundup was ruthless and inhumane, but decided against the association on a narrow legal issue.

National Farmers Union (NFU) called Friday for the resignation of Otto Lang as minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board and urged that all oil companies be nationalized. The 600 delegates, during the final day of their week- long annual meeting, adopted a resolution saying that Mr. Lang "continues to act in an irresponsible manner." The union also urged that the wheat board be placed un- der the jurisdiction of the federal agriculture department. On energy, the NFU adopted a policy paper calling for nationalization of all facilities used in the development, extraction, processing and distribution of all energy resources under Canadian jurisdiction to protect against exploitation. Walter Miller of Tara, Ont., NFU vice-president, told the delegates that farmers are the largest consumers of fuel products and that while oil companies have declared huge profits during the last year, they also increased the price of petroleum products. "I don't know what else you'd call that except the blackmail of the Canadian he said. Delegates also urged research into the recycling of petroleum products and said REQUIRED IMMEDIATELY 3 NEW AND USED VEHICLE SALES PERSONS Experience preferred but not essential.

Another suggestion that natural products, such as wool and rubber, be used exclusive- ly rather than manufacturing synthetic products, was adopted. Stating an urgent need that a policy be adopted to define a farm and a farmer, delegates adopted another resolution asking each local to set up study committees with the in- tent of eventually making a decision at the next conven- tion in 1975. On women's rights, the NFU adopted a policy that all assets and property ac- cumulated by either spouse during a marriage be owned equally by each party. The resolution also said all liabilities incurred during a marrage should be con- sidered. The union also decided to maintain and expand the boy- cott of Kraft Foods Ltd. prod- ucts as a means -of showing the public "the monopolistic position this international giant is assuming in the control of the cheese industry and other dairy products." In a unanimous decision, the delegates adopted a proposal by its youth members that they forego lunch in favor of bread and water and donate each to aid starving people in Ethiopia. Later it was announced that was raised. The delegates approved a resolution asking that the federal and provincial governments introduce legislation requiring cabinet members to declare their assets at the time of ap- pointment and to report any major changes in assets dur- ing their term of office "even though they may be held in trust." Several delegates expressed concern that cabinet members could circumvent the measure by transferring assets to spouses and the resolution was amended to call for such disclosure by cabinet and senior civil ser- vants and their spouses. Better training for guards demanded OTTAWA (CP) The public service alliance said Friday that federal correction officers with little or no train- ing are dealing with hard-core and dangerous criminals. In a brief to a three-man ar- bitration board on behalf of 000 corrections officers, the alliance said: "We are confident that training and development in the various approaches for handling incidents which arise daily in an institution would prevent many acts of violence from occurring. "Often new recruits are placed on the job with no direction or advice on handl- ing such situations and dis- astrous consequences result, ready for instant analysis by the public through press coverage." The remarks were contain- ed in a statement on the alliance's demand for a 29- per-cent wage increase plus a shorter work week for correc- tions officers, the men who control and supervise the ac- tivities of prisoners. The corrections staff already has rejected a ten- tative salary agreement that would have given them 24 per cent over two years. In binding arbitration it is seek- ing 12 per cent retroactive to Oct. 1; 10 per cent in June, 1975, and seven per cent in February, 1976. The work week would be reduced to 37 Vi hours from 40 hours.
