CALGARY (CP) The de-J partment of finance and Bank of Canada should get out of the world of 1944 and look to the future, former communi- cations minister Eric Kierans said here. By the end of the next dec- ade, Japan will be as eco- nomically powerful as the Uni- ted States and the European Economic Market will also have a tremendous influence.

ILynjurance7 oLicL INSURANCE IS JUST NOT PART OF OUR BUSINESS -IT IS OUR ONLY BUSINESS Phone 327-3009 CONN VAN HORNE h JACK WARBURTON SOUTH MONTREAL (CP) Jacques Rose, 23-year-old mechanic, be- gins his trial Monday on a charge of kidnapping Pierre La- porte, former "Quebec labor minister, in October, 1970. Rose, known for violent court- room outbursts, is the younger brother of Paul Rose, who has been convicted and sentenced to two concurrent life terms for ;he murder and kidnapping of Mr. Laporte. Defence lawyers will be Bob- j ert Lemieux and Jean-Serge Masse, the first time any of the :our men charged in the kid- nap-slaying crisis has had a lawyer defending him on the kidnapping charge. Paid Rose defended himself with the help of Mr. Masse, his legal adviser, and Bernard Lor- tie convicted of kidnapping last Sept. 22, did not bother defend- ing himself or appointing a law- yer. Lortie is serving a 20-year sentence for the kidnapping. The date for his murder trial is to be set March 6. Francis Simard, serving a life sentence for murder, will have his date for the kidnapping trial set March 6. Mr. Lemieux had asked Jan. 7, when Jacques's trial date was set, that the Crown proceed with the murder charge first. The request was refused. The 30-year-old lawyer, who has defended several members of the Front de Liberation du Quebec, made a similar request when Lortie appeared for his trial but it was refused. In both cases the Crown said it had the prerogative to choose which chargd to proceed with first. Mr. Justice Roger Ouimet of Court of Bench will pre- side at the trial. "How art thest three major groups going to fit with each other? "Are they going to divide up the economic world into spheres of Each of those blocks is cap- able of producing all the tele- vision sets, or cars or steel the whole western world needs, he said, and will leave nothing for Canada. If Canada gets locked into being a supplier of resource and does not develop industry it could have problems that are not even contemplated now. Unemployment could rise to seven or eight per cent in the next few years then to nine and maybe up to 12 unless an effec- tive industrial base can be formed which is not dependent on tariff protection. Mr. Kierans said he does not plan to seek re-election but will keep advocating changes in economic policies. Whether people believe in the economic changes he advo- cates is immaterial, Mr. Kierans said, as long as they think and question the way things now stand. The average person knows more about economics and asks questions which a few years ago would not have en- tered their minds, he said. It would be.more difficult for the people to be deluded in the future.

HERCULES DEADLINE The wheat board also an- nounced May 31 as the deadline for submitting samples of se- lected Hercules durum to Canadian grain commission, for testing under the selected Hercules delivery policy. The special policy, an- nounced in September, 1971, gave producers who had assigned quota acres to Her- cules the opportunity to ship one selected carload of the new durum variety this crop year. Those producers who wish to take advantage of this special policy must submit their sam- ples of Hercules through their country elevator managers be- fore the May 31 deadline. Exports to Japan forecast OTTAWA (CP) Canadian government efforts to encour- age change in "the Japanese mentality" may result in more exports to Japan of Canadian manufactured goods, Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin said here. He told a news conference that during his tour of Japan last week, he obtained Japanese lowing statement: "There is recognition by the Japanese government of the need for a greater manufactur- ing content in Canada's exports to Japan, that increased exports of Canadian manufactured prod- ucts are welcomed by the Japa- nese government, and that posi- tive co-operation will be forth- coming from the Japanese au- thorities in Canadian efforts for the development of such exports to Japan." The trade mission Included 31 Canadian businessmen, who dis- cussed specific export prospects while Mr. Pepin talked to politi- cal and industry leaders. He es- timated delegation members met influential Japanese in their one-week tour. Until last year, Canada had been running a surplus in trade with Japan. But imports from Japan increased in 1971 to more than million from mil- lion while exports to Japan fell slightly to million from million. Mr. Pepin said he told Japa- nese leaders Canada is con- cerned that 97 per cent of dian imports from Japan were manufactured goods, but only 27 per cent of Canadian exports were in that category.
