The brothers, from Clearlake, Man but now residents of Rocky Mountain House, were charged after Constable Allen John Hurkett of the Redwater detachment was held hostage and driven at gunpoint across Central Alberta in his own cruiser Nov. 27. The brothers will appear in provincial court for preliminary hearing Jan. 20.

He said it is being revived to consolidate the flow of infor- mation going to the public through a variety of mailing lists. MP says immigration .too high BELLEVILLE. Ont. (CP) Jake Epp, Progressive Conservative member of Parliament for Provencher, said Thursday his parliamen- tary correspondence shows a strong feeling that immigra- tion should be reduced especially in major cities. He told a meeting of the Conservative Youth Federa- tion that Australia and New Zealand have closed off im- migration because of inflation and other economic problems and there seems to be feelings in some Canadian centres that Canada should do the same.

B C Rail Canada staying in Demonstrations greet Giscard talks POINTE A PITRE, Guade- loupe (AP) French Presi- dent Valery Giscard d'Esta- mg was greeted by young lef- tists shouting "Get out, Giscard'" when he arrived Thursday on his way to a weekend summit with U.S. President Gerald Ford. The demonstrators ran ahead of his limousine, slow- ing its progress, and some tried to climb on to the hood. The demonstration by lef- tists was thought to reflect un- rest because of a shaky economy and high un- employment, as well as increasing nationalism.

(AP) A 15-year-old boy tried and convicted as an adult in the first-degree murder of a 12- year-old girl was sentenced Thursday to death in the electric chair. The circuit court jury that had convicted George Thomas Vasil on Wednesday recom- mended the death sentence after more deliberation Thursday. Under Florida law, a con- viction jury in a capital-crime case can recommend either execution or life im- prisonment. Death By The CANADIAN PRESS Los Angeles Paul Rich- ards, 50, televison and movie actor, of cancer. resume VANCOUVER (CP) Talks were adjourned Thurs- day night and were to resume Monday in an attempt to end a strike by five shopcraft unions against British Columbia Railway that has halted rail traffic since Nov. 21. Contract talks resumed Thursday night for the first time since Nov. 11 after the railway said it would agree to union requests and reinstate a dismissed Prince George employee and remove demerit points against several other employees. Norm Farley, chief negotiator for the unions, said the appointment of an in- dustrial inquiry commission, as sought by the railway, was not discussed at the Thursday session. Meanwhile in Victoria, Labor Minister Bill King re- jected a call from officials of municipalities along the rail line that the government legislate the 550 men back to work The strike has put an economic stranglehold along the line from Squamish, about 30 miles north of here, to Fort Nelson in Northeastern B.C. Talks broke down after the company offered a wage increase of 19.5 per cent in a nine month agreement. The offer was 11 per cent less than what the union had requested. Indicted LOS ANGELES (AP) Thirteen persons were in- dicted Thursday on fraud charges in an alleged securities swindle in which millionaires and movie stars had invested millions of dollars. Mideast peace force OTTAWA (CP) The government formally stated Thursday that Canada will remain in the United Nations peace-keeping forces in the Middle East for another six months. That means that servicemen will remain in the UN Emergency Force (UNEF) and about 120 in the UN Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) on the Golan Heights. The UN Security Council extended UNEF for six months from Oct. 24 and UNDOF from Nov. 30. In both cases Canada, and other participating countries, were asked to remain by Secretary-General Kurt Wald- heim. The cabinet, in the midst of considering reduced work for a smaller armed forces, said it agreed to an extension but held up its approval of the full six months. Now a statement released in the name of External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen, who is in Brussels, said the government has agreed to the six months. The statement said the minister "noted it was par- ticularly important at this time that the continued effectiveness of the UN peacekeeping activities in the area be assured." Canada shares the logistics support role with the Poles in UNEF. Later this month the cabinet is expected to give reluctant approval to continuation of troops on the UN Force in Cyprus The Security Council is expected to make its usual six-month extension of UNFICYP Dec. 15. The Canadian Airborne Regiment of Edmonton, which was in Cyprus during the dangerous days of the Turkish invasion, is being replaced by the London, Ont.-based Royal Canadian Regiment Fourth defendant takes stand today WASHINGTON (AP) For 2Vi months, Robert Mardian has been listening and taking notes while testimony at the Watergate cover-up trial cen- tred on other defendants. Today it is his turn to defend himself against charges that he participated in the effort to hide the biggest political scan- dal in United States history. Mardian, 51, is accused of conspiracy to obstruct justice, while the others are charged THEY GAVE Following is a list of those who have contributed to the Cup of Milk Fund.

He is listed in only five of the 45 "overt acts" the government says went into the conspiracy. On June 17, 1972, when five men were arrested in the Democratic party's headquar- ters in the Watergate office building, Mardian was reported in California on a political trip with John Mitchell, Jeb Stuart Magruder and Frederick LaRue. Mitchell, former attorney- general, headed former presi- dent Richard Nixon's re- election committee. Magruder was his deputy, Mardian and LaRue were aides. Mardian had served as assistant attorney-general in charge of the justice department's internal securi- ty division under Mitchell, joining the committee May 1, 1972, as a political co- ordinator Magruder said he learned of the break-in through a tele- phone call from Gordon Lid- dy, leader of the break-in crew. Magruder testified Oct. 30 that Mitchell told Mardian to telephone Liddy with instructions to seek out Attorney-General Richard Kleindienst to get one of the arrested men out of prison be- fore his true identity became known. That man was James W. McCord, security chief of the re-election committee. Compromise clears way for yule break Crowsnest rate plan 'disturbing9 EDMONTON (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed said Thursday he was disturbed at suggestions the Crowsnest rates on grain be abandoned. The premier, told delegates at the annual convention of Unifarm, Alberta's major farm organization, that the suggestion by Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, came at a time when the west was making some progress, "and seeing some daylight" on transportation problems. "We can only hope it was one of those trial balloons and that hopefully somebody punc- tured and it collapsed The premier said Mr. Lang's suggestion came after he (Mr. Lougheed) had made some complimentary remarks about federal government plans for tran- sportation announced in the speech from the throne. "I still haven't got over the shock of the federal minister who was involved starting to talk about changing the Crowsnest rates the one thing that we in the West historically have in legislation." "Just at the point where we seem to be seeing a little bit of daylight in terms of transpor- tation, it was disturbing to suddenly get that Mr. Lougheed said. "The real answer to equity in confederation is going to lie m the field of transportation." The premier reiterated that agriculture still is the "base industry of this province" and that it was important it work well and mesh with other sec- tors. Kissinger has hopes for Cyprus BRUSSELS (AP) U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissin- ger says he has "great ex- pectations" of progress toward a Cyprus settlement. He arranged more meetings today with the Greek and Tur- kish foreign ministers before returning to Washington. Kissinger's day began with a meeting with British Foreign Secretary James Callaghan, who in separate meetings Thursday urged foreign ministers Dimitri Bit- sios of Greece and Mehil Esenbel of Turkey to support a resumption of negotiations between the Greek and Turkish Cypriots. That is the approach favored by Kissinger. OTTAWA (CP) Govern- ment and opposition members compromised on two impor- tant bills Thursday, dissolving talk of filibusters and clearing the way for a Christmas recess late next week. The government announced it has decided to postpone its hotly contested petroleum administration bill until the new year, and the Progressive Conservatives agreed to accept modifications of an electoral redistribution bill they had vowed to block. Government House Leader Mitchell Sharp, announcing postponement of the oil bill, said the parliamentary Christ- mas holiday, which had been in doubt, likely will begin Dec. 20. It is expected to last about one month. He said the oil bill, which would give Ottawa final authority to set domestic oil and natural gas prices if agreement could not be reach- ed with producing provinces, will not be changed to satisfy opposition objections. But the government was willing to put it off until the new year in return for assurances that other out- standing bills would be cleared by Christmas. The oil bill also authorizes the tax on petroleum exports and the subsidy to consumers in and east of the Ottawa Valley who are dependent on high priced imported oil. FIND A WAY The subsidy officially lapses Dec. 31 without approval of the bill, but Mr. Sharp said other means will be found to continue it. The bill has been a factor in heating up the federal provincial resources dispute, and the opposition has said that the delay will provide a cooling off period. After hearing the government's decision, MPs forged ahead quickly with other proposed legislation. In quick succession, they gave second reading approval in principle to bills that would lighten the workload of the Supreme Court of Canada, defer final wheat board payments to grain growers and expand the federal law reform com- mission. All were sent to Commons committees for detailed study. They must be reported back to the House for third reading before going to the Senate and becoming law. The bill to boost the size of the 264 seat Commons to 282 by the next federal election expected in 1978 was approved by the House elec- tions committee and returned to the Commons. GAIN SEATS Passage came after British Columbia and Alberta were promised one more seat each than was originally planned. The bill was challenged by the Conservatives but they accepted the B.C. Alberta modifications. The bill now is expected to sail smoothly through remain- ing stages of passage. The Supreme Court bill would eliminate the right to automatic appeal in some civil cases by weeding out appeals that have no national significance. Rioting continues in Burma RANGOON (AP) Thou- sands of troops patrolled the nearly deserted streets of this Burmese capital today after a second spasm of arson and shooting Thursday night. The official Rangoon radio said a special tribunal sen- tenced 35 persons to three to five years in prison for destroying public property. Schools, businesses, and markets were closed and only a few food sellers were on the streets. The radio said nine persons were killed and 74 wounded in clashes since government forces Wednesday retrieved the body of U Thant, former UN secretary-general. Students and Buddhist monks seized Thant's coffin Dec. 5 and kept it on the Rangoon University campus in protest against President Ne Win's military-socialist regime. An official of the U.S. em- bassy here said Thursday that government casualty reports were "way too low." The Japanese newspaper Asahi Shimbun reported per- sons had been arrested. ARSON IS RAMPANT Crowds of students and workers set fire to public buildings and buses Wednes- day afternoon. Ne Win declared martial law and a 6 p.m.-to-6 a.m. curfew, and the army drove rioters from the streets. All public transport was halted Thursday afternoon, causing many office workers to be caught on the streets after curfew. All were reported taken off by army patrols; some were reported freed later but others were held for questioning. On Thursday night, mobs destroyed a railway ticket of- fice and a train engine, a broadcast said. Troops were guarding build- ings and the cemetery near the Shwedagon Pagoda where the government buried Thant's body. Burmese stopped foreigners on the street to denounce the government or warn them about the curfew. But most foreign tourists kept to their hotels. Several amateur photogra- phers were threatened with bayonets and lost their film when they took pictures of troops. BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD.
