The 70-page while paper says the regional a u t h o r i t y has achieved major improvements in the quality of some area-wide services but "the lines of au- thority in many instances were blurcd or else duplicated." "It is the view of this govern- ment that all major services should be unified but that local government political processes of local government WINNIPEG (OP) The Man- itoba government lodny un- veiled proposals aima! a', both u n 1 f y i n g and decentralizing local government for Greater Winnipeg's inhabitants. The proposals call for a single central council t o carry out most of the functions now per- formed by the area's I'l munici- palities and one regional author- ity, white community commit- tees at the borough level would perform minor administrative functions and ''provide ready access by the people to the local government system.'' The proposed c o m m u n i L y committees would have no tax- ing power, nor would they be able to hire or fire staff. The proposals were prepared by a group of consultants under Finance mack. A timetable appended to the seven of the smaller units coin- report says public hearings will be held on ihe proposals in for preparation of legislation at the next session of the legisla- ture, expected in late winter or early spring.

It is at odds with the commis- sion's major recommendations calling for consolidation of the area's municipalities into nine cities and retention of the two- tier system of government set up in I960 with formation of the bincd to create three lot il areas. Each local area would elect, by ward, at least three repre- sentatives to the 48-mcmbcr central council, while additional representation would be decided on the basis of one councillor per population. The mayor would be elected by members of the council, from among its 48 members. Each councillor would have a dual responsibility, sitting both as a member of the central council and the community committee in his area. The white paper suggests that at the same time be de- centralized. "We are convinced that these must be parallel processes: and that one cannot succeed without i community committeesbe the other." formed from the areas em- braced by from three to wards, meaning that with its wards, the area now adminis- tered under the City of Winni- peg could have up to seven community councils.

SAN RAFAEL, Calif, f AP) Angela Davis, flown across the continent under heavy guard and secrecy, was today at the scene where four persons died in a Shootout she is accused of helping to plot. The avowed C o in m u n i s t, scheduled for arraignment today in Superior Court, was placed in a jail cell Tuesday in Marin Couniy Civic Centre, background of the killings last August. Although not present at Ins Shootout, she is charged with murder, kidnapping and con- spiracy under state law holding accomplices equally guilty with those who actually carry out crimes. As the gales closed behind the car taking Miss Davis to jail Tuesday afternoon, she raised a handcuffed wrist and gave the cl.enchcd-fist Black Panther sa- lute. Miss Davis, whose hair was cut short when she was arrested in a midtown New York motel Oct. 13 while on the FBI's 10 most-wanted list, was wearing it in fluffy Afro style again.

One of the prisoners was young Jackson' broiher. Miss Davis was accused ol providing the guns in the .escape attempt. OLD SPICE Shave Cream and After Shave Lotion 2.75 Value.
