Governor's removal sought RCMP-native relationships said eroded in remote areas ST. PIERRE (CP) A petition asking for the removal of Gov. Jean Cluchard and 65 mobile guardsmen from the French islands of St. Pierre-Miquelon was en route to Paris today. The petition, signed by more than two- thirds of the adult population of this capital of the islands off Newfoundland's south delivered to Gov. Cluchard Monday. The petition began cir- culating Sunday night after the guardsmen landed follow- ing their arrival Saturday from the French Caribbean island of Martinique aboard the naval vessel Francis Cor- mier. EDMONTON (CP) A joint brief prepared by the Newfoundland government and the Inuit Tapirsat of Canada, representing Eskimos, says relations between police and natives in remote areas has eroded dur- ing recent years. The brief, presented Mon- day to the national conference on native people and the criminal justice system, blames the erosion on the Soviets, Egyptians CP Air hijacker convicted toagts f SASKATOON Nairn Djemal was found guilty Mon- day of hijacking a CP Air jet- liner between Winnipeg and Edmonton on Nov. 29.

Five held pending inquest MONTREAL (CP) Four men and a woman being' held in police custody pending an inquest Wednesday into the murder of 13 persons at the Gargantua Bar Salon Jan. 21.

Moncton hearing continues CAIRO (AP) Foreign ministers Ismail Fahmy and Andrei Gromyko exchanged toasts thai emphasized anger on both sides. Egypt is upset because the Soviets won't supply it new weapons and Moscow is un- happy because Egypt is rely- ing primarily on United States diplomacy in the quest for peace with Israel. Fahmy thanked the Soviets Monday night for their sup- port of the Arabs. But he said the threat of a new war "makes it a must for the Arabs to bolster their strength in all fields, especially their defence capacity, to deter aggression." Gromyko said that "it is be- coming increasingly clear who stands beside the people's real legitimate rights and who works to destroy them." The Soviet foreign minister also affirmed Soviet support of the Arab demands for Israeli withdrawal from all territory seized in the 1967 war, restoration of the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people, including their right to establish a national entity, and the right of all states in the Middle East to live in peace and security. He also renewed the Soviet demand for immediate resumption of the Arab- Israeli peace conference in Geneva. So far, Egyptian President Anwar Sadat has seconded U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger's opposition to this in hopes that Kissinger can negotiate another Israeli troop withdrawal in the Sinai Desert. U.S. intelligence sources in Washington reported that the Soviet Union in recent weeks has delivered military cargoes to Egypt for the first time since last summer. But the sources said the recent shipments, like shipments last summer, were ammunition and spare parts for weapons the Egyptians already had, not the advanced new weapons they want. changing lifestyle of the RCMP. Delegates to the conference, including about 200 treaty Indians and Metis from across Canada, held closed-door discussions Mon- day and a later incamera ses- sion was barred to reporters, except those representing native newspapers and broad- casting companies. Resolutions passed in work- shop sessions Monday and this morning will go to an open session later today -where Solicitor General Warren Justice Minister Otto Lang, Indian Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan, Secretary of State Hugh Faulkner and senior cabinet ministers from all 10 prov- inces and both northern terri- tories will be asked to con- sider them. The workshops Monday ranged in discussion from po- lice to post prison programs. Mr. Allmand said the conference represented a "macro view" of the native justice system and will lead to other conferences on in- dividual problems. The brief presented by the Newfoundland government and the Inuit Tapirsat of Canada said that when RCMP officers tended dog teams and were forced by physical isola- tion into close personal eon- tact with natives, the police were well respected in the North. But with mechanized travel and easy communication with the south, RCMP officers have withdrawn from the native communities and become remote from the peo- ple they serve. Ford ridicules proponents of rationing ATLANTA, Ga. (AP) President Ford, after winning support from eight Southern governors in his opposition to gas rationing, heaped ridicule today on calls by some Congressional Democrats for rationing. In remarks prepared for a convention, Ford said ration- ing recommendations remind him "of the difference between washing a car and having it tuned up." "Washing a car will make it look shiny, but it will not make it run better." Ford said rationing would penalize lower income Americans "because those who needed extra gas would be forced to buy coupons from those who use less than the allotment." He estimated that such transactions would mean that some persons would have to pay up to a gallon for gasoline. "Even if it were workable, gasoline rationing would not go to the heart of the problem, which is reducing total oil con- the president said. "Gasoline is only about 40 per cent of a barrel of crude oil. The gasoline rationing advocates offer no solution on how to save on the other 60 per cent of that barrel of crude." The eight governors were unanimous in opposing ratio- ning at the consumer level, but many of them remained skeptical about Ford's energy proposals. was the view the state executives gave to reporters early today following a four- hour meeting with Ford Mon- day night. "We don't want to hold it he said in an inter- view. "Perhaps by the end of the week we'll be finished." The bill includes personal income tax cuts and other measures that apply to 1974 tax returns, already in the hands of taxpayers across the country. The deadline for fil- ing is April 30. But rebates for those quali- fying, and sending in their re- turns early, cannot be mailed until the bill is passed, the government says. It wants the opposition to speed passage and get rebate cheques moving. Mr. Stevens questioned whether the bill must be pass- ed to mail rebates. "It's a technical thing but I think they could bend the rules enough to do it. They seem to be using it as a tactical ma- noeuvre to pressure iis to push the bill through. In any case..-. we won't filibuster it." He said the Conservatives want to make a series of points before the bill is approved. It was still awaiting second reading Monday night. Debate began one week ago, but was interrupted one full day for other business. "For one thing, we're not satisfied with the interest Mr. Stevens said. It exempts all taxpayers from paying income tax on the first interest income from savings deposits, bonds, dividends or pension plans. But the amount is reduced by any interest a taxpayer pays out on loans, wiping it out altogether for anyone pay- ing more than in interest payments. "This is makes two classes of Mr. Stevens said. The Conservatives also want amendments to delete controversial clauses apply- ing .income tax to royalties paid by resource companies to provincial governments. "This whole federal- provincial resource dispute should be resolved by negotia- tion between Ottawa, the provinces and the (oil and gas) companies he said. "The Income Tax Act shouldn't be used as a bludgeon to impose a solution." 'Intervention likely to harm mint strike' Terrorist suspects held MONCTON, N.B. (CP) An employee of a Moncton car rental agency testified Mon- day one of two men charged in a murder kidnapping case BELFAST (AP) Seven suspected terrorists, one a girl, were ordered held without trial today in the first government detentions since the outlawed Irish Republican Army called off its Christmas truce. The Northern Ireland government said Merlyn Rees, British administrator for Ulster, signed the deten- tion orders. Six of those to be held are from the Roman Catholic New Lodge area of Belfast and the arrests are in connection with recent bomb attacks in down- town Belfast, officials said. The IRA ended its truce on Jan. 16 after 25 bomb-free days in Northern Ireland and Britain, and said British concessions were inadequate for prolonging the ceasefire. The guerrillas want an end to detention without trial, the release of persons held as convicted or suspected terrorists and the withdrawal of -British troops from Northern Ireland.

Preparation HI VANCOUVER (CP) A University of British Colum- bia geologist says a three-year period of compulsory national service for every citizen is the only way to cure unemploy- ment woes in Canada's primary industries. Speaking before a Van- couver Institute audience, Harry Warren said there are many necessary but unplea- sant jobs to do, without which "society, as we know it, wilf grind to a halt." Since no one has yet come up with an equitable and generally acceptable way of persuading people to do these jobs, Mr. Warren said, com- pulsory service "before (a man or woman) is allowed to proceed, largely at state ex- pense, to higher education or chosen avocation" may be necessary. Mr. Warren admitted he doubts anybody will agree with him but added, "itirtry I am justified in asking you to come up with a better one Under the Warren scheme, each citizen could opt for ser- vice in the armed forces or a primary industry, such as mining or lumber. "It might be possible for religious and conscientious objectors to do their stint in one of the more boring of the service he said. During the compulsory ser- vice period, he added, workers should receive their food, clothing, board and pocket money "but no more." Saying that his scheme would reduce unemployment and produce wealth "not merely distribute and redistribute Mr. Warren said the present lack of willingness by mine to take jobs in remote northern areas is "contributing directly to both unemployment and inflation." Mr. Warren eritidied the labor movement because It "dislikes industries which art energy intensive and light on manpower." "They, like the ret of us, dislike dangerous, boring, repetitive, wearying and lonely he said. "Nevertheless, they want a minimum wage and want to share in the good things of life." He said that he made a tour of northern mines two years ago and found all of them in need of more workers, "but the workers preferred to stay in town consuming wealth and producing nothing." Mr. Warren also .said the repeal of "wise and stimulating laws" has made the outlook gloomy for the mining industry, he praised the old laws "generous depletion allowances on min- ing profits, tax holidays for new mines and immediate write-off for exploration and development expenditures." He said newer legislation results from the domination of tbctions by-what he called "tertiary workers" those not engaged in primary or secondary industries, and including "doctors, lawyers, politicians, merchants, un- iversity professors, bankers, policemen, clergymen and a host of others." Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Labor Minister John Munro would intervene in Ottawa's continuing Mint strike, he told the Commons Monday, if he thought it would help. But the minister insinuated ministerial intervention would probably do more harm than good at this stage and he was confident a settlement could be worked out without his direct involvement. About 600 workers at the Royal Canadian Mint have been off the'job for almost a month. They are seeking a two-year salary agreement providing 10, per cent increases in the first year and per cent in the second. Mr. Munro said un- successful attempts have been made on several occasions to bring the parties together and he said the mediator was anx- ious to see talks resume. Former Prime Minister John Diefenbaker had urged the labor minister to personal- ly intercede in the strike after he claimed the work stoppage has created a coin shortage "never before equalled." Mr. Diefenbaker had come armed with a handful of news- paper clippings taken from papers "from Vancouver to Ottawa" which told of serious coin shortages. He insisted Supply and Serv- ices Minister Jan-Pierre Goy'er was badly informed last Thursday when he refuted the veteran Tory's claims that the work stoppage had caused a severe scarcity of coins across Canada. Indians claim victory GRESHAM, Wis. (AP) Indians claim victory even though members of the Menominee Warrior Society were taken to jail in handcuffs after ending a 34-day armed takeover of a religious estate. A crowd of more than 100 sympathizers filled the air with victory chants and drum beats Monday night as the 39 Menominee Indians arrived at the county jail in nearby Shawano. The society's members had agreed to surrender as a condition of a settlement un- der which the unused former Alexian Brothers novitiate they seized at gunpoint Jan. 1 would be deeded to the Menominee tribe.
