To all good friend: who's friendship means sc much and those with whom I'm somehow out of touch -Helen 7702 UNITED NATIONS (CP) The United Nations sees the continuing growth of nation- alism in both French-and Eng- lish-speaking Canada as the most important change in the Canadian consciousness in re- cent years. In Quebec, it says in a report, this growth has taken "the form of movements for cultural and economic nationalism, frequently ex- pressed as a demand for an ndependent Quebec nation." In English-speaking Canada, it has been articulated in terms of Canadian economic and cultural autonomy." The UN made its obser- vations in a paper, issued by the Economic and Social Council, on social trends in North America. The paper, part of a general series on world social problems, deals with such broad fields as housing, women, public safety, pop- ulation, employment and education and is based largely on statistics already made public in Ottawa. It says the nationalist forces in Quebec are divided between those who believe that the so- cial, economic and cultural goals of Quebec can be attain- ed within the Canadian Con- federation and those who wish to create a separate state. It noted that the Quebec govern- ment has attempted to bargain with the federal government for a stronger place within Confederation and has gained control over social-welfare programs. REACT TO TAKEOVERS Dealing with Canada as a whole, the report says the growth of Canadian nationalism emerged in the middle and late 1960s as a reaction in part to the growing domination of the Canadian economy by foreign-owned and controlled businesses, largely American, and was focused in part on Ontario, where foreign takeovers were concentrated. "To the growth of economic nationalism has been added concern for regional domina- tion and disparities in which the dominant role of capital based in Ontario has been questioned in the West, the Atlantic provinces and Quebec." In general, the report says, the social climate in Canada in the 1960s and into the 1970s has been "one of questioning established beliefs and reappraising social policies." "The rapid growth of the la- bor force and its increased concentration in a few large cities resulted in a sharp awareness of the cost of ur- banization and the need to plan and direct the future. "Concern for the poor, women, native people, immi- grants, youth and the aged gave rise to new programs, while the need for a more- integrated approach tr economic and social security for all citizens led to the ex- ploration of a number of policy alternatives and debates about their cost." A new women's con- sciousness has invaded almost every aspect of Canadian life, and women have begun to enter the labor force in greater numbers but with no dramatic change in the dis- tribution of women within broad occupational cate- gories. Women still were concen- trated in clerical, service and recreation, communication, professional, technical and sales occupations and were "underrepresented" in blue- collar occupations and managerial jobs. Wage differentials affecting women had not narrowed sig- nificantly. Canadian universities in the Baby, it's cold outside MOSCOW (AP) The temperature was reported to be minus 72 degrees today at Verkhoyansk, a small com- munity in northern Siberia considered the coldest place in the Northern Hemisphere. It was the first time in several years that the temperature there had dropped so low, the news agency said. All heating systems in the community were working ade- quately, Tass reported, and life continued normally. No planes have reached Verkhoyansk for the last three days because of a dense fog, and mail and newspapers were brought in by road. 1960s were the setting for a new political consciousness among some young Canadians, and the activist student movement succeeded in gaining decision-making rights for students in many in- stitutions. Some acts and ac- tivities tended to alienate the students from the general public. "By the said the re- port, "it was obvious to most student militants that the uni- versities themselves and political action within them were incapable of producing the changes they wanted in Canadian society. "This, combined with a change in the political climate as a whole, has led to a weakening of the student ac- tivist movement." The report found that about four million Canadians lived in poverty at the beginning of the 1970s. More than a quarter of all low-income family heads were 65 years of age or more, and in 1971 two-thirds of the people in that age group were living below the poverty line. The report found Canada to be a safer place to live than the U.S. Crime continued to rise in the U.S., and 42 per cent of the people questioned in a 1972 survey said they were "afraid to walk alone at night." Crime also increased in Canada, the report added, "but major Canadian cities, which are smaller in size, are still considered relatively safe." Australia promises aid for gas victims CANBERRA (Reu- ter) Officials of Australia's repatriation and compensation department declined today to give any fur- ther details about secret poison gas experiments in northern New South Wales and Queensland at a time when Australia feared' a Japanese invasion in April, 1943. The experiments came to public attention recently when a former army warrant of- ficer, Bill Soper, claimed in a book that many of the soldiers who took part had failed to ob- tain compensation after suf- fering respiratory problems, skin ailments, loss of hair and limb disablements after being sprayed by mustard gas fired by artillery. Senator John Wheeldon, minister for repatriation and compensation, announced Tuesday that after an investigation he could confirm the gas experiments had taken place and that victims could lodge claims for compen- sation. Why the army decided to use troops, instead of animals to test deadly mustard and other gases was still unex- plained, although some reports have suggested the ex- periments were designed to try out protective clothing and anti-gas ointments reported to have been issued to some of the troops who took part. NATIONAL DISGRACE Both Soper and former army captain, Brian Westwood, earlier this month attacked as a "national dis- grace" the alleged refusal of compensation to victims of the poison gas experiments. Westwood, who said he had taken part in the wartime ex- periments, said the troops had been marched through areas which had been saturated with mustard gas and had then been bombarded with gas shells while they were in trenches. "At the time, we looked upon the whole thing as a great he said. "We were young 'with a spirit of adventure and were told it was something "out of the or- dinary." Westwood said about five per cent of the men under his own command required medical treatment and of those half were in hospital for long periods. 4Gay marriage WINNIPEG (CP) Chief County Court Judge Alan Philp ruled Tuesday that vows between two Winnipeg homosexuals at a Unitarian Church did not constitute a marriage. Richard North, 22, and Christopher Vogel, 26, had asked the court to direct the provincial vital statistics recorder to register their homosexual union as a marriage. The recorder, D. W. Matheson. refused on the ad- vice of the department's solicitor to register the union, which means it is not legally a King was senator claims WATERLOO, Ont. (CP) A woman had the last word Tuesday night at the close of the colloquium on the life of W.L. Mackenzie she pointed to a lack in the life of the bachelor who ruled Canada for 22 years. King was a lonely man be- cause he didn't have a wife, Senator Therese Casgrain told 400 persons at a banquet. Male participants, in the two-day Mackenzie King Centennial Colloquium at the University of Waterloo had pondered on obscure inner meanings in the voluminous diaries kept by the former prime minister. "If Mr. King wrote such long diaries it was because he had no one to speak to when he went Mrs. Casgrain said. The Montrealer also dis- puted evidence that King con- sulted clairvoyants and sought glimpses of the future in crystal balls. Actually, Mr. King merely had an "uncanny a quality that women also pos- sess, said the widow of Pierre Casgrain, onetime Speaker of the Commons, Liberal minister and judge. BORN IN BERLIN While the colloquium took place at the university, the final by Ontario Lt.-Gov. Pauline was held at nearby Kitchener where King was born 100 years ago when the town was called Berlin. There were reminiscences on King by former Liberal ministers Douglas Abbott, Lionel Chevrier, Jack Pickersgill and Huges Lapointe, King's longtime Quebec lieutenant. Mrs. Casgrain, an independ- ent who in the past held Liberal and CCF allegiances, said in an interview the CCF forced old age pensions on the Liberal party, contrary to an earlier statement by Mr. Pickersgill who served as private secretary to Mr. King for 11 years. "I have listened ad nauseum to CCF and NDP talk about how the Liberal party was the vehicle for carrying out their Mr. Pickersgill told the banquet. "But the fact was that King had 'seduced the Socialists from and induced them to accept his social he said. Mr. Pickersgill described Ernest Lapointe as "all but the co-prime minister" during the rule of King. MADE PARTY STRONG The one-time history profes- sor at the University of Mani- toba said King took over a shattered party in 1919 and stepped down in 1948 when it was the strongest Canada had ever seen. King accomplished this not by appealing to regional prej- udices, as is sometimes charged, but largely by recog- nizing that French Canadians had to be treated with equality in a country where they make up one-third the population. "The wisest thing for any politician to do is to retire before he is retired and to leave a legacy that is better than what he said Mr. Pickersgill. "No leader has done that better than Mackenzie King. Thirty participants including scholars and authors of works on King took part in the meetings sponsored by the University of Waterloo's history department. During one interval Tuesday, recordings of King's speeches were played, including one tearjerker about the death of his dog Pat. The topic King and the Ad- ministrative Process was examined by Gordon Robertson, clerk Df the Privy Council and secretary to the cabinet, along with John Baldwin and Davidson Dunton who served as top civil ser- vants before moving on to other fields. The consensus was that King sought with great care to surround himself with able in the political or administrative then gave them considerable leeway. marriage under provincial law. In dismissing the applica- tion for a court order, Judge Philp said, "I view it as self- evident that the ceremony performed Feb. 11 was not a marriage, it was a nullity. "That the applicants pur- ported to comply with all the conditions of solemnization prescribed in the marriage act cannot alter the fact that a marriage did not take April Katz, counsel for Mr. North and Mr. Vogel, argued all legal requirements were met for the ceremony con- ducted 10 months ago in Win- nipeg, with Rev. Norman Naylor officiating. Mrs. Katz said these re- quirements included medical certificates, a marriage cer- tificate, the publishing of banns and the participation of a minister and witnesses. Judge Philp, who quoted from two encyclopedias and a dictionary, said the "univer- sally accepted" meaning of marriage involves men and women and the raising of families. He said while marriage has not been defined in federal or provincial legislation in Canada, it has been defined judicially. He emphasized portions of two British cases. One case, dated 1865. said that marriage, "as under- stood by Christendom, may be defined as the voluntary union for life of one man and one woman, to the exclusion of all others." The other, dated 1970, said the characteristics which dis- tinguish marriage from all other relationships "can only be met by two persons of the opposite sex." Judge Philp said there was an important distinction between deciding that a marriage is invalid and deciding that no marriage ex- ists to be registered. He said the former decision may be a judicial one, outside the jurisdiction of a provincial recorder, but the latter clear- ly involves the exercise of ad- ministrative discretion, given to Mr. Matheson by the legislature. Mrs. Katz said no decision has been made on whether to appeal the ruling. ON THE RUN TOKYO (AP) About one quarter of Peking's population is taking part in a two-month distance running program, the official Hsinhua news agency- reported Wednesday. Hsinhua said the 1.7 million runners use "big streets and small lanes in the city proper, heav- ing through early-morning traffic no matter how cold the day is."
