Students unhappy with school strike CALGARY (CP) - High school students in Canmore, Alta., are unhappy with a teachers' strike in the Bow Valley School Authorities Association. The students, among 12,000 who have been out of classrooms in seven districts since the strike began Nov. 29, have published a two-page news- 300 SUNGLASSES to choose from AVAILABLE IN YOUR RX OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. paper called the Flinky Tribune. Included in the paper are several classified ads outlining the students' feelings. "L 0 s t -o n e education. If found please return to students of Bow Valley school district." "For sale: One school, slightly used, complete with students. Teachers not included." "If you think this paper Is funny, wait until you see the exam results." The 613 striking teachers cover the counties of Wheatland and Mountain View, the school districts of Di-umheller Valley and Three Hills, and local boards in Banff, Can-more and Hanna. tax bill. The prime minister said th.s main Conservative complaint about I he bill is that they had I not had enough time to study it. I In a strongly partisan speech, Mr. Trudeau said the Conservative complaint that they could not study the biU during the summer was an admission of their own inefficiency. Copies of the bill had been distributed to all MPs and the opposition research staffs July 12. STRAYED FROM TOPIC The Commons debate itself had gone on for 49 days. During that time Conservative members had often wandered aimlessly on other topics. The Conservatives, Mr. Trudeau said, had shown the essence of fiscal irresponsibility by saying they were in favor of cutting taxes for some peoole but they were opposed to increasing them for others. Despite all the criticism, he said, the bill was filled with "relevance, fairness, growth incentives." The national debate on tax change had been going on since 1962 when the Diefenbaker government had appointed a royal commission on taxation. "The only thing in Canada that has dragged on as slowly in recent years is the heavy water plant started by the leader of the Opposition when he was premier of Nova Scotia." The Glace Bay heavy water plant is considered a political embarassment as it never has come into operation because of technical problems, despite the expenditure of millions of dollars since it was inaugurated. UNFAIR TO STA7VFIELD Robert McCleave (PC-Halifax-East Hants) said it was unfair to blame the hea-\'y water situation on Mr, Stanfield. Liberals such as Treasury Board President C. M. Drury, Pri^'y Council President Allan MacJEachen. and Gerald Regan, now premier of Nova Scotia, had been the first to adorn themselves with halos and laurels when an agreement was signed this fall to put federal fimds into the stalled pi-oject. As for the tax debate, he said it cHdn't matter whether the bill was debated for 50 days or .500 days, as long as it was dealt with properly. But the Commons, he said, had only dealt with about one-third of the bill, leaving the problems that would result to future Parliaments.

Effective next June, departmental examinations will form the basis for half a student's mark in all matriculation subjects, with the other half being determined by the school. This now is the practice in all subjects but pysics, chemistry and mathematics, in which fir nal marks have been awarded solely on the result of departmental examinations. Endorsing the change.

PHONE 327-7524 Army womis damage paid to farmers EDMONTON (CP) -Cheques totalling about $250,-000 are being mailed to 5,000 Alberta farmers whose rape-seed crops were damaged by Bertha army worms last summer. Joe Gurba, head of the pest control branch of the provincial department of agriculture, said Tliursday farmers' claims are based on $1 per acre that has been treated with the chemical lannate to fight the infestation.

Payments of $1 an acre are also being processed for crops in the Calgarj'-Dnjmheller area treated last summer to counter a beet web woi-ni infection, he said. TJiese cheques will total about .^50.000. Qieques \vorih more than $500,000 are being sent out by the Saskatchewan government to fanners in that province whose crops were invaded by the army worm. An intensive monitoring program is planned by both provinces next year to count moths and give warning against an' other army worm outbreak. Mrs. M. Scott, Lettibridg� .. $ Anonymous, Burdett, . .

Corporal Dickinson said he made tests of powder residue patterns found oai the green and white shirt worn by Mr. Neville June 13. He said patterns m the centre back of the shirt were compatible with patterns fixed from the Smith and, Wesson revolver at a range of! from sk to 18 inches. | Patterns found on the left i shoulder of the shhi, were compatible with ammunition fired from the revolver at a range of from 15 to 24 inches and patterns on the left chest and sleeve were compatible with those fii-ed from test ammunition at a range of from three to seven feet. Wednesday, two women testified they knew of no attempts to blackmail Mr. Neville as a result of tlieir relationships with him. Crown. Counsel W. J. Stainton had told the court in his opening statements Monday that Latta had told fiiends on his an-ival m Edmonton in June that he was here to help Mr. Neville who he said, was being blackmailed for his philandering with women. Maria Ban and Valerie Lane were asked by Mr. Stainton whether they had ever blackmailed Mr. Neville, whether either of them had a grudge against Wm, or whether they had known of a blackmail attempt by anyone else. Both replied vehemently, "no" to each question. The trial continues. RCMP arrest dangerous criminal FORT ST. JOHN, B.C.
