The announcement was made by the opera company at a news conference Wednesday at- tended by Gentele, 53. and Bing, 68.

Military draft Japan's goal? TOKYO (Reuter) A govern- ment report on the defence has raised the possibility that, de- spite repeated government deni- als, Japan may be considering adopting a military draft. Japan's self-de- fence forces today recruit per- sonnel for ground, naval and air units through a volunteer sys- tem. But speculation on a change was revived when a brief state- ment in the draft report saying I "a conscription system will not i be adopted" was deleted before final cabinet approval was given. Tlie reason given for the dele- tion was a conflict of opinion be- tween legal experts on whether conscription was even permissi- ble under the constitution. Until tlie end of the Second World War, military service was compulsory for all Japa- nese men under the constitution. One factor in favor of a con- scription system is that the self-defence forces are finding difficulty in recruiting enough personnel. Increase cjuota for flaxseed WINNIPEG (CP) The Ca- nadian Wheat Board has an- nounced a general increase to eight bushels a quota acre from five in producer delivery quo- tas for flaxseed. The increase, which will al- low additi o n a 1 deliveries of more than 10 million bushels of flaxseed by producers, applies to all delivery points within the wheat board's designated area. The wheat board said today hi a news release producer de- liveries of flaxseert in the per- iod Aug. 1 to Dec. 2 totalled 11.3 million bushels, an increase from the 9.9 million in deliveries the same period last year. VANCOUVER (CP) A con- sultant's report says revenues of British Columbia's producing mines reached a record 5353 million in 1969, up H per cent from and projected devel- opments cculd bring revenues to more than SI billion by 1975. The forecast is from a study bv Price Watcrhouse and Co., for the Association of British Columbia. The study is based on (lie ac- tivities of 59 companies that, according to the prov i n c i a I mines department, accounted for substantially all production of metals, asbcsios and coal, all on property development ex- penditures and more than one- third of outside exploration ex- penditures h (he province in 1969. The companies have 34 mines operating or under con- struction hi B.C. "At the close o[ 1989, about 20 active investment projects of major proportions were' either under construction or at the ad- vanced feasibility said the report. "This could entail a total of more than billion in new cap- ital expenditures, and could well result in the tripling of the current mineral production of the province. "The industry therefore may well be at the threshold of an unprecedented period of growth. The extent tJid timing of this growth could well be severely affected by significant changes in such key factors as world demands for minerals, and tax and other legislation. "However, provided a favor- able climate for growth is main- tained, (he British Columbia mining industry could be gen- erating in excess of SI billion of income hi the province, pos- sibly as early as 1975."

''The decade has closed with record exploration and develop- ment and capital expenditures, which alone would indicate that the 1970s hold much the report Said. The 1969 capital expenditures were at a record high of million, bringing the HJ-year Lil to SS23 million. "It. is noteworthy that million or 75 per cent of these expenditures were made in the last five years." the report said. The net capilal inflow in 1969 was S270 million, up 22 per cent over 1968, and a record S55 mil- lion was spent on exploration and development, a 30 per cent increase over 1968.
