The Belgians, now forced into a general election because of internal ruptures, are seeking a Common Market effort to redefine its basic precepts in the light of new problems such as the energy shortage. The problems, as the Belgians see them, include Common Market failure to agree on a firm plan to aid the Community's backward regions and the action of some major latest being to adopt independent monetary policies. Energy poses the biggest Common Market challenge, sorely trying the unity of the nine-country partnership. It also poses a challenge to the wider co-operation of the NATO military alliance. OIL BECOMES WEAPON While the shortage probably hasn't affected vital reserves held for possible wartime emergency, there is concern in NATO military circles about the manipulation of oil supplies as a military weapon in future emergencies. Authorities also are con- cerned about the limitations on oil supplies for joint military exercises, essential in the maintenance of Western preparedness in facing Soviet- led Warsaw Pact countries in Europe. Realizing civilian sensitivi- ty about the lack of sufficient oil supplies, military authorities say they don't want to be responsible for reducing living standards. But they argue that the West can- not maintain civilian prosperi- ty without security and securi- ty cannot be assured without military defence and preparedness. OTTAWA (CP) Transport commission hearings on Bell Canada's proposed rate in- creases begin today with an unprecedented number of formal opponents lined up against the telephone company. A commission spokesman said 113 interventions have been filed against Bell's application, which would increase the average monthly home telephone jiill by 10 cents. The 113 interventions include arguments by the Ontario, Quebec and Newfoundland governments. The increases would affect about 4.3 million customers in Quebec, Ontario, parts of Newfoundland and the Northwest'Territories, tinder the proposed new rate structure, the cost of local coin box calls would increase to 20 cents from 10 cents. A new 25-cent charge would be made for operator assistance on numbers listed in the directory except when the calls were made by handicapped persons or from coin boxes. Among groups opposing the Bell application is the Con- Saint John longshoremen vote to continue strike -Art and Helen SAINT JOHN, N.B. (CP) Ron Smith, president of Local 273, International Longshoremen's Association, said Sunday, about 290 members of the local voted in favor of continuing their strike at the Saint John waterfront. Mr. Smith said the local decided after a four-hour meeting to stay on strike "until we get a fair contract." Clarence Phillips, business agent for the local, which has about 800 members, said six of the nine ships that were tied up at Saint John left the port during the weekend without taking on their export cargo or discharging "any amount of import." Destination of the ships were not announced. About 300 tons of perishable meat cargo was unloaded from one vessel and wholesalers' trucks were being passed through picket lines Sunday to pick it up. Mr. Phillips said two of the issues in dispute with the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) involve a cost of living escalator in the contract and the deletion of about a dozen items from the Daylight time aids power cut WASHINGTON (Renter) The adoption of daylight time in the United States has resulted in a two-percent reduction in use of electricity, a federal government agency said Friday. However, the Federal Energy Office added, at least five school children have been killed in the pre-dawn hours since the clocks were changed Jan. 6. The agency's remarks ..ere contained in a background pa- per on the controversial time change released Friday. The agency said Florida has had eight accidents involving pedestrians and bicycle riders in the early morning hours since Jan. 6, while five children have been killed on their way to school in other states. CANADA ESCAPES DEFICITS? WASHINGTON Canada may be the only major industrial country in the West to escape trade deficits this year resulting from the huge increase in world oil prices, the Washington Post reports. It said confidential forecasts of individual deficits were produced by the Paris-based Or- ganization for Economic Co-operation The organization predicted a fl.S-billion deficit for the United States this year, instead of the fS-billion surplus forecast before the December oil price in- creases. contract which give management control over labor. Mr. Smith said the men also want a two-year contract while the MEA is seeking a three-year contract. Meanwhile, pickets are remaining on duty at the various entrances to the dockside areas. Mr. Phillips said there is no strike fund and the striking men will not receive strike pay- Mr. Smith said the MEA is offering a 50-cent increase retroactive to Jan. 1, 1973, 30 cents to Jan. 1 of this year, and a further increase of 30 cents Jan. He said the latter two amount to six and 5.7 per cent increases whereas "no one knows where the cost of living will be in two years." The strike started Friday after the longshoremen voted 239 to 46 to reject the latest proposal worked out by a federal mediator.

Marypn Brechin, association president, says the CAC intends "to offer alternative solutions to a further round of rate in- creases which can only add to an already vicious inflationary spiral." Hearings on the application will be held in Ottawa, Mon- treal and Toronto and are ex- pected to last at least six weeks. The company- said in its application the proposed increases will add about million to its 1974 revenues, allowing it to attract needed investment of about million to maintain and improve service. However, these figures as- sumed the new rates would go into effect Jan. 1 and returns from any news rates will be lower because of delays in ap- proving them, a company spokesman said. The 8.6 per cent rate of re- turn on investment requested by the company has not changed since the company first filed its application in November, 1972, he said. Other figures were changed last year to reflect a better than anticipated financial performance by the company. The Bell spokesman said the fact that the key rate of return figure has not changed in more than a year "shows we are confident of our case."
