One of th? U'lters came from Wilson Ihirford. whose only brush with the law came when lie bought a house in Toronto. The legal fees were Mr. II a r f o r d 's letter ex- pressed suspicion of all the professions" that wasn't reduced by his experi- ence with his lawyer. Why was a lawyer needed in buying a house'' And what did he do. beyond shuffling paper.! to earn his fee? Mr. Harford's questioas wer-1 en'l mentioned, let alone replied j to. during the conference of, about 350 high-powered aca-1 demies, activists, lawyers, offi- cials and judges. i HIT PROFESSION?

STOL aircraft getting nowhere OTTAWA (CP) Canada's with the 48-seat DHC-7 expected STOL aircraft development pro- ject appears to be stalled at high levels in the government. "The government is seriously looking at a number of alterna- tives.'1 said one government source. "With the cabinet shuf- to replace it later, De Havilland has received a government subsidy to prolong the life of the DHC-7 project at least until March.

Cpl. Denis Couture, testifying at a Quebec Police Commission inquiry into Die conduct of Mr. Saulnier, now Montreal police chief and head of the morality squad in 1966, said he was never asked by Mr. Sauluier to fabri- cate evidence, but "it was done every day by the others." The inquiry, called in the wake of a report that Mr. Saul- nier received a color television set from a Montreal hotel owner in December, I960, has heard wide-ranging testimony from members and former members of the Montreal police force, on the captain's conduct when he headed the morality squad. A woman c a' 1 e d Martha Adams was subpoenaed to ap- pear before the commission Fri- day but a heavy snowstorm pre- vented police from bringing her lo the inquiry and Cpl. Couture was the day's only witness1. Lieut. Emile Dueharme, who also served on the morality squad under Mr. Saulnier, testi- fied earlier this week that on April 3, 1967, a Martha Adams, who was under arrest at the time on charges of living off the avails of prostitution, made a sworn statement concerning Mr. Saulnier. Cpl. Coutm-e also testified that he informed Mr. Saulnier on Oct. 24, 1366. that the morality squad was divided into two groups which were not collabor- ating with each other and that one group sometimes hindered tbe work of the other. One group was composed of four msn, himself, Lieut. Du- charme, constables Leo Ville- neuve and Roland Clermont, while the other group consti- tuted "the rest of the squad, or about 40 men." He said the group of four had planned a raid on a suspected bawdy house, but when they ar- rived at the establishment they found everyone had vanished. Cpl. Couture added, however, that he had no concrete evi- dence that squad members had Bad weather hits Kaiser operation NATAL (HNS) Harsh weather and heavy snowfalls have been causing shipping problems at Kaiser Resources Limited coal operations. Snowsb'des caused a drop in the normal number of unit trains and Kaiser had to start stockpiling coal at the plant site. This has been going on for more than a week. Normally, two CPR unit trains per day load up at the mine. The number has dropped to half that. Trains have been held up by snowslides at va- rious points between here and the' Roberts Bank shipping point, including several hold- ups in the Fraser Valley. Kaiser spokesman Jack John said that the CPR had done its utmost to supply the ears, but had been hurt badly by the weather.

Mr. Couture said Mr. Snulnier had admitted he had differences with Lieut. Dueharme. "He ended the talk by telling me that there were plenty of Villcncuves, Coutures and Du- and not many Snulr niers, but theru was one across the street who was very impor- tant."

Teachers in court would EDMONTON (CP) Sal- aries of teachers who face criminal charges should be suspended until the charges are disposed of, the Edmonton public school board said Fri- day. Board chairman Donald Kennedy said the board has written to the Alberta govern- ment asking that provincial legislation in this regard be changed. Under existing legislation, a teacher is suspended from work if he faces a criminal charge. The salary, however, continues during the suspen- sion. If the teacher is finally convicted then the teacher is dismissed and his salary stop- j ped. Mr. Kennedy said the board feels that the salary' of a teach- er facing a criminal charge should be held in trust until tiie case is disposed of, he added.
