Doyle was taken under es- cort from the firm's down- town offices in a Shcrbrooke Si. apartment around 7 p.m. Friday The silver-haired promoter has been a controversial figure for years and a dissident group of Javelin shareholders based in the United States made an un- successful attempt at an an- nual meeting in the late 1960s lo curb his control over Javelin affairs. He was a close business associate and friend of Premier Joseph Smallwood during much of the latter's years as head of the Liberal government in New- foundland. The most recent incident in newspapers involving Javelin concerned suspension of Javelin share-trading on the American Stock Exchange late last month by the U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission. The commission filed a civil suit against Doyle and William Javelin president. It alleged there had been violations of SEC rules governing fraud and reporting. grow but he urged members to rededicate themselves to the organization and its goals.

It also aims at halting land speculation and keeping the loss of land to power line and other public projects to a minimum. During the week-long meet- much of the discussion centred on the future of the wheat and the 453 delegates reaffirmed their hope that the board will become the agency responsi- ble for all principal grains. They continued their opposi- lion to the federal government's plan to remove domestic feed grains entirely from the conlrol of Ihe and also made clear their sup- port of the marketing of rapeseed through the board. On the subject of collective delegates approv- ed a draft bill which would allow the NFU to become the agent for farmers as soon as it obtained the support of a ma- jority of farmers in any province of portion or a province.

Reg Basken. Alberta Federation of Labor and Neil Reimer. national director of the Oil. Chemical and Atomic Workers International appeared before a special caucus meeting attended by about 15 NDP members. Mr. Reimer said he was concerned that the energy- debate so far had concentrated on oil and that any national energy policy must include all energy sources natural coal and electncal energy. He said Canada has a ''fan- tastic to take ad- vantage of the present world energy situation and that if Canada continues to export its Strom issues warning EDMONTON Former premier Harry Strom warned Friday that any attempt by Alberta to withhold its oil supplies from the rest of Canada would only provoke federal intervention in the province's oil ownership rights. The federal government would use special sections of the British North America Act to Mr. Social Credit MLA for said in the legislature during debate on the government's energy bills. Mr. who has urged Premier Peter Lougheed to seek a meeting with Prime Minister suggested that is the way to end the Alberta- Ottawa dispute over oil prices and control of oil exports. He emphasized that he does not like the federal export tax on crude oil but he told the Conservative dominated legislature that ail the effects of the tax are not bad. through the federal government action have been able to pick up the people's share of an unantici- pated he said. action has protected Canadians both price-wise I would supply- Mr. Strom's comments came during the fourth day of debate on amendments to the Mines and Minerals Act which would permit the cabinet to set royalties at whatever level it wants.

He said the NDP must push the federal government to en- sure that any such national corporation becomes involved all must encourage the federal government to make it an all-inclusive and com- prehensive corporation rather than just an exploration com- Mr. Basken said. Mr. Reimer said energy ex- ports should only be allowed when Canada's supply has been assured and that while low cost fuel could be available in Canada based on costs of production higher fuel could be exported to match world prices. He agreed with Max Salt- member for Waterloo that a two price policy for natural gas as suggested by the Alberta government was not realistic. Under the policy. Alberta consumers would receive a rebate on gas with a higher price for gas sold out- side the province's boun- daries. Mr. Saltsman and Mr. Reimer agreed that this policy if implemented could mean similar two price systems for other com- such as copper and nickel produced in Ontario. Measle outbreak Mont.

Justice Minister Otto Lang replied he will examine the re- quest and reply later. Lease fees in Banff and Jas- per national parks were in- creased recently and many residents complained of and said they wanted to appeal. The justice department has informed the Banff advisory committee that it has selected four properties in that park as typical of all increases. It sug- gested these four assessments be appealed to the Federal Court and the decision settle all disputes over rentals.
