The FTC said it intends to seek an order requiring that all future contests result in award of all prizes as represented, and that the exact number of the awards with their approximate retail value and the odds of win- ning each prize be clearly stated. In addition, the order would require that the firm. Reader's Digest Association, Inc., Pleas- antville.

ELF claimed in a statement cabled from Aden to The Asso- ciated Press that more than Eritreans were killed and 500 arrested since the emperor declared a state of emergency in Eritrea Dec. 16. It charged the imperial army and air force staged "several concerted attacks that left thou- sands of people homeless and without food in many Eritrean towns and villages." The towns of Dunkalia and Keren were "almost completely demolished" by air bombard- ment, said the front's secre- tary-general, Osman Mo- hammed Sabi, who signed the ELF cable. He claimed Eritreans have fled to neighboring Sudan since .the beginning of the cur- rent Ethiopian Army offensive and called for international aid and medical supplies to the ref- ugees and the homeless.

The society said the policy with the Guardian Insurance Co. of Canada will be compul- sory for all Ontario lawyers, ex- cept those who are not in prac- tice or who are in full-time em- ployment with a government department or corporation. Liability under the plan will be for each occurrence, and in the event of a claim will be deducted from the amount payable. The premium has been set at a year. The newspaper says Viger was arrested a few days before Christmas and released after questioning. But he was picked up again Sunday, Uie newspaper says, and released after he told police about the tunnel. On Christmas night, police made a search of the house and even knocked holes in the walls but did not find Uie Uu-ee fugi- IC...M. tjioit. It was reminiscent of a police raid in a Queen Mary Road apartment Nov. 6 when police arrested Bernard Lortie, also sought on a Canada-wide arrest warrant, but missed the Rose brothers and Simard who were hiding in a secret compartment behind a clothes closet. The warrant for Paul Rose, 27, was issued Oct. 18 charging him with kidnapping both Brit- ish diplomat James Cross and Pierre Laporte, the Quebec labor minister killed Oct. 17 a week after his abduction. Wan-ants for Jacques Rose, 23, Simard, 23, and Lortie, 19, were issued Oct. 23 charging them with conspiracy in the kid- napping of Mr. Laporte. The Gazette says the tunnel bottom was a mass of mud from water dripping from the walls and roof. A frame of wooden beams, nailed together in the form of a box, kept the earth from caving in: The newspaper says police found drills, hammers, saws and three police jackets as well as a large supply of canned food, a small electric stove for cooking, a gallon jug of water, a hand-operated sump pump to keep the tunnel dry and sleep- ing bags. In Uie house itself, police found more canned food, a bed and dresser, two portable televi- sion sets and two pairs of bino- culars. Graham named Raymond mayor RAYMOND (HNS!

Ice formed during rough trip to Toronto from Pic- ion in which one of ths wheclhouso windows was smashed by Ranchers in Alberta, lose to cuttle rustlers CALGARY (CP) It hardly represents a return to the Wild West, but Alberta ranchers fig- ure they have lost more than the last year to cattle rustling. And this is a conservative says Chris Mills, sec- -etary of the Western Stock Growers' Association, Disccus- ing the modern-day bad guys who use a small truck or car to strike in a remote area for a calf or two and then disappear. While rustling has been a fact of life since the West was opened, it dropped during the 1960s and now is re-emerging hi a new form prompted perhaps by a drop in economic prosperi- ty during the last two years. "There is much less rustling in groups as in the old days but an increasing incidence of one or two animals being Mr. Mills said. The association's campaign to have more police assigned to rusting problems, a seven-5rear battle, was successful in June when the RCMP assigned men to assist the one officer as- signed to stock inspection in Al- berta. ADD OFFICERS Three officers stationed at Red Deer, Calgary and Leth- bridge, have joined constable Vic Wingerter of Edmonton who has been working in the field for three years. There now is agitation to have another officer assigned at Peace River to cover northern Alberta. "We've all been fairly busy and we've had Consta- ale Wingerter said in an inter- view. But tracing rustlers Is diffi- cult for a number of reasons. !In the Calgary area we've had many cases where people ihoot an animal and then just remove the Mr. Mills said. Another problem is that many animals just wander off or be- come the victims of bears or wolves. Many ranchers do not even bolter to report missing animals. "I feel we only hear from about one-third of Uie said Constable Wingerter. There has been an increasing incidence of rustling southwest of Calgary and in the Medicine Hat area but action by ranchers in the Cochrane and Claresholm areas has been successful. "Local people in these areas, working with the police, have formed protective associations and take turns patrolling thou- sands of acres at night them- Constable Wingerter said. These ranchers report suspi- cious incidents and record lic- ence plates of vehicles.

UW.W Told) out the province and defend- ed his government's policy on visually handicapped children Monday. The 51st session of the par- liament, which meets every year to learn more about gov- ernment by submitting and de- bating its own legislation, was discussing a resolution calling for government action that sends visually impaired chil- dren to schools outside the province for elementary-school education. Mr. Clark, who was watching proceedings from the gallery, agreed to speak on the resolu- tion. He said it would be diffi- cult and expensive to provide a sufficiently rounded out program for the small numbers of children involved. Similar costs to run a school for the deaf for between 100 and 125 students cost about last year, he told the youtjis. Earlier, Campbell Young, president of the Alberta Associ- ation for Visually Children, said the Impaired province BANFF (CP) Seventy per; cent of alcoholics started drink-, ng as teenagers, a member of i Alcoholics Anonymous told a' Youth Conference on Drugs and Alcohol Monday. i The conference, sponsored by the Alberta Alcohol Drug Education Association, is being ittended by 360 students select- ed from high schools across the province and from Kamloops and Fort St. John, B.C. The idea behind the confer- ence is to provide accurate in- 'ormation on the physical, rnen- ;il, social and legal aspects of alcohol and drug use and abuse, organizers said, Alcohol was the main topic Monday. Alfred Herald, director of education for the California Council on Alcohol and Drug Problems, opened the confer- ence with a discussion of alco- iiol as a drug. Alcohol is classified !y as a depressant action drug, ire told the teen age audience, although it gives a pseudo stimulant effect before it reaches the brain. Studies have not yet been extensive enough to show ac- curate comparisons between the physical effects of alcohol and drugs such as heroin and marijuana. But he warned research In California last spring has shown enough alcohol will per- manently damage brain cells. The former alcoholic, intro- duced only as visitor, told the conference that one out of every 40 Canadians is an alco- holic. There are many types of spends nearly a year to send children to schools in On- trio and British Columbia. Debate on the resolution, which was presented by opposi- tion leader George Bennett, was adjourned to a later ses- sion. During the first three days, the parliament has debated is- sues on Canadian sovereignty over a 100-mile coastal limit, nationalization of major indus- tries and euthanasia under certain conditions. Stil! on the order paper are resolutions calling for legaliza- tion of all drugs, controls on in- ternational arms sales, abolition of political parties, pollution control and relaxation of abor- tion laws.

The Kmid-Hanscn Hospital said two unidentified bodies were brought lo its morgue, and one apparently was a child's. They were believed lo be John Vanyo of Murray Hill, N.J.. and his son, Victor, Vho were listed by ths airline M mining. _.

Tho alcoholic cannot be treat- ed until lie accepts that he is one and that he cannot handle liquor, lie said. Students asked questions and divided into small discussion groups where they will matters based on the speakers' views. Today, Mr. Herald was to discuss the effects of drugs. The conference ends Wednes- day. Two prisoners abuse deadline for Christmas FORT S A S K ATCHEWAN (CP) Two prisoners released on Christmas passes from the provincial jail here did not re- turn by their Sunday afternoon deadline.
