If we look into the eyes of children and sec others with their help, we will notice many conditions in Canada that must be changed; poverty, ignorance, discrimination. "But we will also identify many other traits that we want to preserve because they con- tribute to the kind of Canada we desire: Basic attitudes of com- passion and tolerance and open- ness." Mr. Trudeati said that despite a long and colorful past, Canada is still considered a young coun- try. "To be young is to be full of hope and imagination and vigor. To he young is to be confident; it is also to be questioning and concerned." He said the childhood of some Indians and Eskimos has not been an enviable one. "Infant mortality rates are high, standards of health care and education low. These condi- tions and attitudes, fortunately, are changing; 1071 should be a good year to change them con- siderably more." Tiie prime minister's message concluded: "I wish all of you a happy and fulfilling new year, but espe- cially do I wish these things for cur descendants of those brave and dedicated men who opened up this country and gave it to us to do with it as we would." x, HALE OPTICAL 9 COMPANY 170.

Their ideas are then to be imple- mented at the airports. The transport department said tlie Canadian plan closely follows resolutions passed by the International Civil Aviation Organization at a special meet- ing held in Montreal last June to discuss hijacking problems.

Since October much of the delay has resulted from cabinet preoccupation with Quebec ter- rorism and kidnappings. Bue even bofore that, the pro- posals cf Health Minister John Munro for legislative curbs on cigarette advertising had run into trouble in a cabinet com- mittee. Extensive lobbying against an advertising ban is said by health agency sources hare to be under way by agriculture, to- bacco industry, advertising and mass media interests. The publicly-owned CBC has instituted a voluntary ban on cigarette commercials. Other broadcasters have limited them to after 9 p.m., on the theory that fewer youngsters will be exposed. APPLIED RESTRICTIONS Some individual broadcasl outlets have applied their own restrictions. There have been no indications of restrictions bj print media. A Commons committee which examined the cigarette health hazard issue in 1967-68 proposec that within two years of enact- ment of restrictive legislation all broadcast advertising be stopped and other advertising be limited to simple brand- name statements. The committee proposal that cigarette promotional activities }e ended within a year of legis- lation has been partly antici- Motlier fights to stay in air force AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo.

The government announced its intention to introduce legisla- tion on cigarette advertising last October but has not done so. The same Is true of a con- siderable number of other bills announced at the same time. FOUND HIATUS Iii addition, voluntary health organizations on cancer, respir- atory diseases, heart disease ;nd others have found a hiatus in their advisory contacts on other aspects of tlie anti-smok- ing campaign. An informal committee of these agencies and federal offi- cials was to have met last Sep- tember to work out ways of dis- tributing anti-smoking educa- ilonal material throughout the country through local, branches of the associations. The meeting, to have been called by federal authorities, was never held although volun- tary agency spokesmen say that the last meeting in April broke up with the understanding they would reconvene in September. At least one of these agencies has scheduled a discussion in January of the government's delay. Most of the health asso- ciations rank cigarette smoking as the No. 1 public health prob- lem.

MONTREAL (CP) A sus- pected bank bandit, fatally wounded in a hail of police gun- Eire, was one of six persons killed in Montreal during a wave of violence Wednesday. Claude Lefebvre, 27, died en route to hospital from a throat wound received when he and ;hree companions exchanged more than 100 shots with police nitside a west-end branch of the Bank of Montreal. Two of the other suspects were wounded, >ne seriously, while the fourth was arrested unharmed. Police believe that a long- standing family quarrel resulted n four deaths at an east-end apartment in an apparent mur- der-suicide early Wednesday morning. They said Marcel Prevost of nearby Chateauguay shot and killed his sister and brother-in- aw, Mr. and Mrs. Real Bourke, 81-year-old father, Del- ihis, before turning a .303-cali- >re rifle on himself. In another case, police were lolding a 43-year-old man in the stabbing death ot Mrs. Clau- lette Blanchard in suburban lie Perrot. The man, armed with a knife, was found in the base- ment of the rooming house the victim operated and where he was a tenant. Police said detectives Mau- rice Erosseau and Eugene Yvorchuk were waiting with sub-machine-guns when four men left the Bank of Montreal branch at about 11 a.m. car- rying a sack of money reported to contain When ordered to stop, one of the suspects opened fire.

The holdup suspects were caught in a crossfire, police said. Tlie fourth man ran but was apprehended immediately. It was the fifth time this year the two detectives involved had traded shots with suspected holdup men.

The order was issued Wednes- day and is scheduled to take ef- fect June 28. SMALL STATIONS EXEMPT The ruling does not apply to small, independently-owned gas stations. Nor does it apply to car man- ufacturers, although the FTC hopes they will follow suit and publish recommended octane ratings in owner manuals. Octane is tire measure of gas- oline for burning smoothly with- out the knocking that wastes power and fuel and may resnjt in extra exhaust pollution and engine damage. The gasoline industry opposed the order, proposed in July, because it said octane is Ex-speaker dies WINDSOR, Ont. (CP) Archdeacon M. C.
