UNA Act is the formula for amending the Brit- ish North America Act may not be ideal, but it is probably the best that can be achieved, say members of the joint Senate- Commons committee on the constitution. The MPs and Senators have been grappling with the prob- lems of finding an amending formula and other constitutional IOOKING OVER ONE OF THEIR PRIZES Inside their mobile quarantine facility aboard the carrier USS New Orleans, Apollo 14 astronauts Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell, right, poirrt out details Wednesday of a large moon rock which brought back from the lunar surface. 12 other persons to join spacemen during quarantine Expect lengthy debate QUEBEC (CP) A lengthy, heated debate seems likely in the Quebec national assembly before Premier Robert Bour- assa eventually accepts or re- jects a proposed constitution amending formula. In their initial reactions Wednesday to the formula that emerged from the constitutional conference that ended Tuesday in Ottawa, both the Union Na- tionale party and the Parti Que- The BNA Act is the basis o( Canada's constitution. Mark MacGuigan (L-WM- cc-chairman of the committee, said Wednesday the formula suggested by the first ministers Tuesday at feder- al-provincial talks was more rigid than he would have liked. "But we could live with it." The former dean of law at the University of Windsor called the formula "a fantastic improve- ment" over the Fulton-Favreau formula of the 1960s because it would make constitutional amendment easier. Under the arrangement pro- posed at this week's federal-pro- v i n c i a 1 conference, constitu- tional amendments would re- quire the agreement of the fed- eral government and six prov- inces. HAVE TO GO Among the six concurring provinces, those now containing 25 per cent of the Canadian pop- and two western provinces including 50 per cent of the West's popula- tion, and two Atlantic provinces would have to go along. Provinces alone could change certain features of their own a former P.E.I, ittorney- gsneral, nid the first aim should be to find way of bring- ing home the BNA Act, and only then to find an amending for- mula. But the proposed formula was feasible. Warren Altoaod (L-Mont- real Notre-Dame-de-Grace) called the formula a "great step forward" and better than the Fulton-Favreau formula. Prime Minister Trudeau told the Commons Wednesday the public response to the commit- tee's work-and the standing- room-only crowds it had at- tracted across the country-had impressed the federal-provincial conference with the need to ar- rive at a quick solution to con- stitutional problems. Mr. MacGuigan said the com- mittee would continue its public hearings for several months, and plans a final report in the fan. It may also produce an in- terim report dealing specifically with the new amending formula By NORMAN WEBSTER Cogywrifht 1111 C.MK awl Mail PEKING Cambodia's Prince Norodom Sihanouk flew ABO ARC NEW ORLEANS (AP) Apollo 14's moon astro- nauts today fly off this recovery carrier to Samoa and transfer to a plane for a flight to Hous- ton's Manned Spacecraft Centre. Alan Shepard, Edgar Mitchell and Stuart Roosa depart the ship when the New Orleans steams within helicopter range of Pago Pago, American Samoa. The astronauts have been quarantined in a trailer-like iso- lation van aboard the ship since they were plucked from the South Pacific Tuesday after a bull's-eye landing that climaxed man's third moon-landing mis- sion. For the helicopter transfer they wore special biological masks to prevent them exbaul ing germs. At Pago Pago they move into masks to prevent them exhail- a C141 jet transport for a trip to Houston, arriving about 1 Friday. DUE FOR QUARANTINE They will be quarantined in the Lunar Receiving Laboratory until Feb. 26 with 12 other per sons including engineers, medi cal technicians and cooks. Riding in the quarantine van with the astronauts are Dr. Wil- iam Carpentier, a space agency light surgeon born in Edmon- on, and R. H. Culbertson, an engineer. Carpentier is conducting ex- ensive medical exams on the spacemen. He reported prelimi- nary results show them in ex- cellent health. Shepard and Mitchell, who made two moonwalks totalling more than nine hours, returned ;o earth with no appreciable weight loss. But Roosa, who or- bited the moon alone while the other two were exploring below, BACKACHE BLADDER IRRITATION Common Kidney or Bladder Irrita tions make many men and women feel distressed'from frequent, burn ing or itching urination night and day.

Roosa, who completed the nine-day journey without a scratch, was cut slightly when he bumped his head against one of the low ceilings in the van. The Apollo 14 command ship Kitty Hawk was placed next to the van and connected to it by an airtight tunnel, enabling Cul- bertson to enter and label boxes and bags holding the 95 pounds of moon rocks gathered by Shepard and Mitchell. Half the collection will depart ahead of the astronauts, reach- ing Houston late today. Four news photographers killed in Viet combat duty From AP-REUTER i SAIGON (CP) A South Vietnamese helicopter carrying four foreign news photograph- ers and seven other persons was shot down Wednesday over the Ho Chi Minn trail, and all 11 men were missing and pre- sumed dead. They included three of the best know combat photogra- phers of war: Henri Huet, 43, of The Associated Press, Larry Burrows, 44, of Lift magazine, and Kent Potter, 24, of United Press1 International. Others aboard were Keisa- buro Shimamoto of Tokyo, a Japanese photographer on as- signment for Newsweek; a South Vietnamese army pho- tographer; two senior South Vietnamese officers, and the four crew members. The helicopter was one of four heading into Laos behind Gen. Hoang Xuan Lam, commander of Saigon ground forces in the incursion into Laos. Burrows has covered the war in Indochina for the last nine years. -He twice won the Over- seas Press Club's Robert Capa Award for "superlative photog- and also honored as the Photographer of the Year in 1966 by the University of Missouri School of Journalism. Huet spent three years as a combat photographer with the French Army in North Viet- nam before joining The Asso- ciated Press. becois were critical. The criticism by the two na- tionalist parties indicates a dif- ficult debate on the formula in the Quebec national assembly before the Liberal government decides its position. If the opposition in the na- tional assembly is joined by criticism from outside groups such as the province's influen- tial labor federations and from the public at large, the govern- ment would be forced to reject the formula. Jean-Jacques Bertrand, leader of the official opposition, the Union Nationale, feels that the new formula is similar to the Fulton-Favreau amending formula in that it is too restric- tive. In a reference to nationalist criticism that the Fulton-Fa- vreau formula would have placed Quebec in a "constitu- tional iron Mr. Ber- trand told reporters: "The iron collar may be smaller than it was with the Fulton-Favreau formula but it is still an iron collar."

The Fulton-Favreau formula, which died when it was rejected by Quebec, would have required approval of all 11 governments on many of the big issues in- volving the distribution of pow- ers between the federal and pro- vincial governments. It is named after former Conserva- tive justice minister Davie Ful- ton and the late Guy Favreau, a Liberal justice minister. R. G. L. Fairweather a former attor- ney-general of New Brunswick, agreed that the formula would ideally have been more flexible. But he was willing to pay the price of a less-than-ideal for- mula to win the long-sought agreement among the prov- inces. ABOUT AS FAR The other nine provinces had "gone about as far as they can go" in accommodating Quebec, be said. And it was urgent that some formula be concluded to enable Canadians to change their own constitution without recourse to Britain.

A banquet honoring the 54- year-old premier at the Royal York Hotel temporarily cooled political fires, but they were ex- pected to be rekindled today during official nominations and acceptance speeches by the six leadership candidates. Mr. Davis, 41, and Mr. Lawr- ence, 45, appeared to be in a tight race for the first-ballot lead in voting Friday by the delegates to the three-day leadership convention. Wednesday night, the two front-runners attended the Ro- barts dinner with four other candidates scattered among the banquet guests: Municipal Affairs Minister Darcy Mc- Keough, Financial Affairs Min- back here yesterday from previously unannounced visit to Hanoi, where be conferred with his allies in the struggle in Indochina against "U.S. im- perialism and its lackeys." He was met on the tarmac by Chinese Premier Chou En- Lai. Diplomats here believe Si- hauouk's visit lasted just over a week. They think it not un- likely that, besides meeting with North Vietnamese lead- ers, the prince also conferred with representatives of the South Vietnamese National Liberation Front and the Pathet Lao.

(CP) _ Whether "the great white hunter" is a menace in northern Canada or a financial boon to the people of that region was a topic for hot debate by the Northwest Territories coun- cil Wednesday. The argument erupted during discussion of the territories' sports-hunting program for bears implemented last rear. "I do not believe that the na live people of the Eastern Arc- ic want to see the 'great white muter1 coming north and killing the said Bryan Pearson, elected member for the Eastern Arctic. The native people would pre- fer to have tourists shoot polar bears with then- cameras, he told council. Mr. Pearson introduced a mo- lion calling for the immediate abolition of the polar bear pro- gram. Council members asked for a vote on the motion to be de- ferred until today to give them time to check with organizations and individuals in their constitu- encies. Weldy Phipps, elected council- lor for the High Arctic, said he agreed with Mr. Pearson, to some extent. Mr. Phipps did not suggest the sports-hunting program be abolished but said it should be supervised more closely by game management officers. "The great white hunters can be pretty hard men to control and often shoot at everything in mistic that an agreement could be reached on the basis of the proposal announced this week. "I believe that Quebec will go along." The premiers and the prime minister are scheduled to meet again in Victoria next June to try to conclude an agreement based on the proposal.

Cambodia premier Nol reported ill PHNOM PENH (AP) Pre- mier Lon Nol of Cambodia is ill and doctors have ordered him to suspend all official duties temporarily, a government an- nouncement said Wednesday. Informed sources said U.S. military doctors flown in from S'aigon were treating Lon Nol. They added that the premier had a history of diabetes and was suffering from other ail- ments but his life was in no danger. A source close to Col. Lon Non, the premier's younger brother, said Lon Nol was ex- pected to be absent from his duties for about a month. Dep- uty Premier Sisowath Sink Matak will serve as acting pre- mier. Other sources said it might be months before Lon Nol, whc also is defence minister, can re- sume duties. They said a pro- longed absence by Lon No could increase infighting among, Cambodia's politicians and pro- voke a government crisis. NEWSPAPER BOUGHT PORT HOPE, Ont.
