They were not injured and, railway officials said, then father, whose name was not released, was in satisfactory condition in hospital Sunday. It took more than one hour to free him from the wreckage after the accident on a rural crossing near New Sarepta. A railway spokesman said 30 passengers were taken by bus to Calgary while 10 were taken by taxi to Drumheller. They said the road was icy at the crossing and the driver of the car apparently saw the railiner and, knowing a collli- sion was inevitable, shouted to his children to jump. There was no immediate, es- timate of damage. tics are changing and travel is increasing.

"I told my father about my application, and although was not overjoyed he did not try to stop me." The elder Smith led Rhode- sia's breakaway from Britain five years ago and has proclaimed the British southern African colony a republic unde an all-white administration. The British foreign office sai young Smith's application was rejected as he "does not meet the criteria laid down by Parlia- ment in June, 19G8, for issuing of passports to Bhodesians who are not United Kingdom citi- zens."

Their differences o f opinion were mainly political. She and her children live with her mother now. A. Gordon Archibald of Hali- fax, chamber president, told a meeting with Prime Ministei Trudeau and some of his minis- ters that the country needs clearly-defined economic goals stated in dollar terms, and a new agency to keep the govern- ment and the country informed on how well it is performing. "This nation's first economic objective is prosperity for all Canadian Mr. Archibald said. "This can be achieved only through the generation of the maximum amount of wealth and with the broadest possible equitable distribution of that wealth amongst our poeple." PRESENTS VIEWS He presented the chamber's policy statement, drawn up at its amiual convention last Sep- tember, supplementing it with a oral statement. The statement was given to reporters in advance of deliv- ery. In seeking balanced economic growth and expansion, the chamber said the government should see that its proposed re- vision of the Income Tax Act next year is favorable to the generation of new real wealth. It urged the government to consider "the total structure of tax reforms with a view to giv- ing top priority to economic ex- pansion, investment in Canada's growth and development, and increased employment oppor- tunities for Canadians." There should be a new body, as part of the Economic Council of Canada or associated with it, which will keep an eye on short-term economic trends and interpret them in terms of growth. The chamber also said IJie usefulness of the prices and in- comes commission should be re- viewed. SUPPORTED RESTRAINT The chamber supported the commission's call for prices re- straint in 1970, and though no agreement was reached with business and labor to set new criteria for restraints in 1971, the chamber does not believe run-away prices prevail next year. "There are some people who believe that business will in- crease prices if this (1970) agreement Mr. Ar- chibald said. "Such assumptions ignore the reality of the various competi- tive forces currently at work in the domestic and international market places. Under these con- ditions, business is scarcely in a position to effect many price in- crease. "In our view, the present vol- untary restraint program should be terminated and the remain- ing functions of the prices and income commission should be carefully reconsidered to test Uwir necessity." lionally the provinces could en- ter into such an he told a news conference. The proposal would have to be rati- fied by the federal government. The idea of a western "com- mon market was raised re- cently by George McCarthy, Montana's federal slate co- ordinator who was addressing the governor's Strategy for the Seventies conference at Great Falls, Mont. Attorney-general Edgar Ger- hart of Alberta said last week idea worth al- though any such plan would have lo conform lo federal im- port-export regulations. Alberta would benefit most from such an arrangement be- cause it is more highly indus- trialized than Saskatchewan or the two U.S. states, he said. Mr. Thatcher also said Sun- jy his province is rapidly emerging from a "unique re- cession" caused by a surplus on the world market of all of Saskatchewan's m a j or pro- ducts, including wheat, potash, oil and lumber. Saskatchewan had the lowest unemployment rate in Canada, mbstanlially less per capita than Alberta and despite mar- keting problems "it is definite- ly one of the 'have' provinces. The premier was in Calgary to address an Israeli bond din- ner. He also said that something must be done about the costs of duplication of services among j Prairie universities "or we'll be' in trouble." A report from a committee of the Prairie Economic Coun- cil revealed thai there are 80 to 90 classes in the prairie provinces with only one student and "tens of dozens" with three. Mr. Thatcher said he realizes that the ratio of professors to students needs to be high at tho graduate level. Many courses, however, could be taught at one university exclusively instead of at a number of universities. Consideration should be given to subsidies for students who want, to take a course not offer- ed at a university in their area. He said more emphasis should be given to basic cours- es such as agriculture. Saskatchewan already had more rigid controls over spend- ing in its universities than Al- berta did but Alberta perhaps could afford to be more gener- ous because of its oil revenues, he said. Mr. Thatcher has said that rapidly increasing university costs have caused general alarm in all three prairie pro- vinces and will receive top pri- ority at the meeting of the Prairie Economic Council in Winnipeg Friday.
