Government., Conservatives by Senator Manning EDMONTON (CP) Sena- criticized moves by the Pro- tor Ernest Manning Monday gressive Conservatives during night described the federal! the FLQ kidnapping crisis as government as 'spineless' and little short of'a national dis- grace." The former Alberta premier, recently appointed to the sen- ate by Prime Minister Tni- deau, said Mr. Tnideau's gov- ernment was spineless for throwing Canada's borders wide open to what he called in- ternational fomenters of vio- lence who always identify with feelings of discontent. The Social Credit senator dealt with Progressive Conser- vative policy towards the War Measures Act. "One day they were for the government's action, the next day against, sitting on the fence, trying to make political the brief, presented rf_the most tra- Tourist brief to cabinet too soft CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta Tourist Association was too soft when it presented its brief to the provincial govern- ment, Doug Johnson, executive vice-president of the Calgary Tourist Association, said Mon- to the cabinet earlier Monday, should have been more specific in terms of dollars and cents as to what the public and pri- vate sectors could do to realize the potential of the indutsry. The report alerted both gov- ernment and private sectors "that the tourism and conven- tion business is no longer an orphan and should become the vital force it can be."

Speaking to a party nominal ing meeting, the senator nisi criticized the provincial Pro- gressive Conservatives. He described as "lies" state nients by Alberta Conservative members that education cost, could be removed from the property tax without any extra taxes on Alberta residents. Senator Manning also sai )ers and the ambassador were surrounded in a house in the Rio suburb of Alto da Boa Vista. The kidnappers warned the jolice that if they stormed the louse they would kill Bucher, he sources said. 17 lolled at prayer meeting SAIGON (CP) Two gren- des ripped through a crowd raying at a Buddhist temple in ic Mekong Delta Monday ight, killing 17 Vietnamese and 'oanding 87, South Vietnamese eadquarters reported.

The stand taken by delegates from the Blackfoot, Stony and Sarcee reserves was similar to one put forward last June in the red paper prepared by the Indian Association of Al- berta. The paper said Indians in Al- berta have enough experience in handling their affairs to take the responsibility for education and present arrange- ments are unsatisfactory be- cause governments can make changes without consulting the Indian people. I Delegates also backed the red paper stand that the feder al government should continue to provide education financing because the Indian Act of 1952 said reserve lands must never be taxed, sold or mortgaged.

Mr. Beaupre said the commit- tee had examined the entire question of remuneration very seriously and the recommenda- tions were made after a thor- ough study. "We basically felt this was a job left undone too long." While salaries represented the overriding issue in the reports- Mayoralty contest won by Ungaro and the issue watched most closely by were other important suggestions in- cluded. For instance, MPs would be given a shelter allowance of up to a month to cover hous- ing costs in the Ottawa area. Many MPs now must maintain two Ottawa and in their home constituency. MPs would also receive up to for rent and for staff in constituency There would be higher allow- ances for travel, unlimited free telephone calls, and an exten- sion of free mailing privileges. 'What we've tried to said Mr. Beaupre, "is attack the geographic problem. Ob- viously the MP from, say, the Northwest Territories has an entirely different problem than an Ottawa-area MP when it comes to expenses. We have not defeated the problem entirely, but we have attacked it." The committee also included Arthur Maloney, former Conser- vatipe MP from Toronto, and Marc Lapointe, a Montreal labor lawyer. The position of an MP, said the report, is "one of extreme importance." 'The future of our country de- pends largely upon our ability to secure the services of the best possible people to serve in this role." It said salaries should be high enough to attract people of proven ability.
