The line of march, between lines of British police, passes through the Tower Hill section of the city.. By ALVIN ARMSTRONG I Kingston Whig-Standard KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) -The "big brother" trend in government to look after social needs is having an impact i on the insurance business, in the view of a top executive in the world's largest life insurance company. But Floyd H. Bragg, senior vice-president of Canadian operations for Prudential Insurance Co. of America, feels the ; impact is neither the kiss of : death nor the threat of absorption of the insurance industry. In an interview. Mr. Bragg insisted that the insurance industry is not being crowded out, but "crowded up-challenged to find new horizons." He claimed that government-sponsored social programs, with their goal of universal coverage, "have served to underline the security premise that is the foun- j dation of the insurance industry." But trends to universal health insurance, universal unemployment insurance and even talk of a guaranteed income have created a climate in which the insurance business has increased rather than diminished.

Portugal condemned for action UNITED NATIONS iCP) - With Western representatives sitting on their hands, the 15-country Security Council condemned Portugal Tuesday for ' its involvement in the invasion of Guinea last month. The Western countries on the council-the United States, Britain. France and Spain-abstained on the voting because they did not like the language of the resolution, although they admitted Portuguese involvement. The resolution was passed 11 to 0 after several days of debate of a report by a five-country special mission that was sent to Guinea after the N'ov. 22-23 invasion. That mission reported that the tiny Marxist African state was invaded from the neighboring Portuguese Guinea with the aid of Portuguese armed forces. The Western countries disagreed with language in the resolution that implied that a repeti-lion by Portugal of this incident would mean imposition of mandatory sanctions against it. Britain also said it did not like the implied link in the resolution between NATO and Portugal. Palte rn 75 CONTRACTS ALUMINUM SCREEN AND STORM WINDOWS AND DOORS. FREE ESTIMATES.

Ltd., Di-rectors of Funeral Service, was in charge of the arrangements. BUENOS AIRES (API - Argentina's meat industry, for generations the country's big source of wealth, is caught in a crisis growing out of ranchers' and packers' reluctance to modernize their methods. The system made huge profits for 75 years, into the 1950s. Now world demand for meat exceeds supply, but Argentina is not cashing in. Meat exports are dominated by three huge, foreign-owned packing companies which operate much as they did 50 years ago. They prefer to split an animal and ship the sides to Europe in refrigerator ships. Foreign markets prefer canned or cooked meat; and above all chilled and frozen cuts. Foreign buyers want steaks, roasts and chops cut before the meat leaves Argentina. Packing companies say they can't profitably modernize until beef growers do the same. The ranchr here turns an animal loose on the rich pampa grasslands and lets the animal fatten itself. He refuses to invest in fertilizer, machinery, prepared feed, improved breeding and the other elements necessary for intensive growth of larger herds. He says taxes and the squeeze on prices by the big international packers make investment for modernization too risky. The largest of the big packers is Swift de la Plata, owned by Deltec International Ltd., with U.S. and German capital. The others are Anglo Argentina, owned by Union International of Britain, and Frigorificos Argentinos S.A., or Fasa, whose owners include Adela, a holding company incorporated in Luxembourg. These companies process 40 per cent or more of exports. They have been operating since the early 1900s and once controlled nearly all exports. The three companies suspended exports in October, saying the government must find a way to reduce production costs. The suspension threatens 30,000 jobs. The companies claim loss of $10.8 million this year because the price paid to ranchers has risen to 35 cents a kilo, about 16 cents a pound. They say the price must drop to 25 cents a kilo before they can make a profit. In contrast, three small packing plants with modern machinery report a total profit this year of $1.3 million. Monte Grande, Carcarana and La Platense. all Argentine-owned, sell chilled and frozen cuts abroad. Meat earns Argentina more than $500 million annually in foreign currency. To protect this trade, the government has adopted measures favoring the packers but angering ranchers and the public. COST RISES The aim is to bring down prices paid to the rancher by reducing slaughter for domestic consumption, thus making more animals available for export. The price of a sirloin steak in most restaurants has risen from 60 cents to nearly $1 in recent months. Domestic consumption has doubled since the Second World War. Even poor Argentines eat beef today. Annual per capita consumption of nearly 200 pounds is among the world's highest. Government efforts to promote substitutes-fish, lamb, pork and chicken-are ridiculed. When meat prices rise, the cost of living rises, too. The rate of inflation was 13.7 per cent in the first nine months of 1970, compared with eight per cent in all 1969. Herds total 48 million, fewer than in 1967. Ranchers, packers and government agree that Argentina needs at least 70 million cattle to supply domestic and export markets. Bengalis Party wins election KARACHI (Reutcn - Sheikh j M u ,j i b u r Rahman's Awami League emerged today as the clear winner of Pakistan's first1 general election Monday. The fiery Bengali's party won 132 seats and was running ! ahead in the final three of East ! Pakistan's 153 seats for the Nar tional Assembly. Nine seats remained to be contested in the Ganges Delta disaster area in January, but the sheikh is expected to win there, too. But while the Awami League swept to victory in the more ; populous eastern region with its ' majority of seats, the leftist People's party of former foreign minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto emerged as strong winners in West Pakistan. 1 lie maintained that the government, industry-including the insurance industry-and labor can work together to provide "full employment along with group insurance and other kinds of coverage." One of the "new horizons" to which his own company has recently lifted its eyes is that of the mutual fund, as distinct from insurance." Here the client, in addition to taking out insurance and paying premiums, invests sums with his insurance company. These are managed on the client's behalf, by company staff who "analyze the industries with the greatest growth and stability potential" and invest clients' common fund in so many shares here and so many there-"all their eggs are not put in one basket," Mr. Bragg explained. Investors purchase shares in the fund in either of two ways-by making an initial investment of a $.300 minimum, and subsequent purchases in amounts of $100 or more, or by an investment of from $25 to $100 a month over 10-or 15-year leriods. The company charges a percentage fee for its services. It was not until March of this year that revisions in the Canadian Insurance Act permitted a life insurance company to operate a mutual fund, Mr. Bragg said. He gave as a reason the fear that one institution in society might gain too much power. The "softening" of this position Mr. Bragg attributed to two things at least-the government's "recognition of the consumer's needs." and pressures from the insurance industry. "Insurance salesmen have the same problem as other people in making a living in a time of inflation," Mi". Bragg said, adding that the Canadian Mutual Funds Association, which is made up of companies selling mutual funds, "exerted considerable pressure" toward getting dual licensing for insurance salesmen, so they could sell mutual funds as well. Mr. Bragg foresees a further change, in the division of automobile insurance, where accident claims will be divorced from blame and where "the less-principled auto repair shops will not be able to quote one price if the owner is paying the bill and another if the insurance company is paying it."

Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield has said the public clobbered him by mail for even his slightest reservation about the government's Oct. 16 proclamation of the War Measures Act. But now. he says, he is getting .some letters condemning him for supporting the principle of the public order bill, successor lo war measures, and for allegedly not standing up for civil liberties. His recent mail and thai of many other MPs indicates a questioning of the u.sp of the War Measures Act that Mas completely absent in the immediate wake of the assassination of Quebec Labor .Minister Pierre Laporfe by the Front de Liberation du Quebec. This questioning does not appear widespread, but it is growing. I'liO.MI'TKI) IJV INQt KST Government officials say sonic of it is being prompted by testimony at the Montreal coroner's inquest into Mr, Laporle's death, which tends to portray a catch-as-catch-can FLO operation compounded by police mistakes These sotnces say the escape of three warned men through a secret closet in an apartment, supposedly thoroughly searched by police and where one suspect was arrested, has given a "fun-and-gaines" aspect lo Ihe FI.Q. They add that this in turn has made il much more difficult for the government lo maintain | public credibility in its declara-1 Lion that there was a state of ' "apprehended insurrection" in Quebec. Jean Marchand. regional economic expansion minister, told the Commons that up lo :i,000 armed FLQ members could destroy downtown Montreal and that positions of authority in the province had been infiltrated by the terrorist organization. Justice Minister John Turner said it might never be possible to tell the whole story. QI'KSTIONS STATEMENTS Mr. Stanfield for one now is questioning all these ''October revolution" statements and has done so in his three most recent speeches outside the Commons. 'Canadians have been living in a sort of dream manufac-' lured by rumor and misinformation." he said Saturday al Hagersville. Ont. "A well-organized revolutionary situation was pictured as developing," he said three days earlier in Toronto. "There was the famous story about the plot to overthrow the government of Quebec. These turned out to be just that rumor, and nothing more. . . . ''There is nn evidence of any massive, co-ordinaled conspiracy. What is the FLQ'.' Is it actually an organization with cen-. tral structures and leadership? Or does il consist of people who decide lo call themselves FLQ simply in order to justify an act of terrorism? "So far, we have no answer to , thai question." I At Hagersville. Mr. Stanfield said eight of every nine persons arrested under the War Measures Act have been released without being charged. "Why has there been so little real evidence brought forward so far that such a conspiracy existed'1 Any why have so few people been caught and held? "We aren't going to allow Ihe Canadian people to he sweet-talked out of our right to information by a government that all too often has shown in the past that, the two main qualities it. possesses are arrogance and blind complacency." Government authorities now say it appears that the FLQ has no hierarchy or intricate apparatus but comprises several independent cells working more or less on their own without over-all direction. However, I hey add. that does not make the FU} less dangerous-only harder lo knock out. Government spokesmen also say many of the statements made and actions taken early in the cas.e were designed mainly lo buy time in the police hunt for Ihe kidnappers and, more particularly, for the two men abducted, TKAVFL IP BANFF, Alia.
