It is ai one and the same time an answer lo his more: conservative critics in (Vmgress. who say lhat he has increased military spending but. has allowed defence ex- penditures lo slip, and a signal lo the Soviets that if Ihey continue to re- fuse lo include missile firing subma- rines in Ihc SALT negotiations, lie will upgrade Ihe U.S. program by building bigger and better ones, lie says lhat Ihe U.S. will probably in- stitute production of missiles that could reach largcls from a range of 5000 miles at sea. The present Posei- dons have only a 2800-mile range. The new craft would require sub- hunling Soviets to go a lot further in the ocean expanses to find the U.S. ships. (Some naval experts contend that the present ones are impossible to search oul.) The president stopped short of or- dering immediate commencement on production of the sub fleet but he did say that he has (old the defence department to "develop a program to build additional missile launching submarines carry ing a new and far more effective missile." This is a clear message lo the So- viets. Either include undersea missile carrying ships in the SALT negotia- carrying ships in the SALT negotia- er side can afford to negotiate from a position of weakness, and so the arms race goes on and on and on.

Tim, is not a new premise lor il had been cnlcrUiincil in Ihc minds of people in olher parls of Canada since Ihc (lays ol Mnuricc Duplcsis. Canadians in and out o[ Quebec realize now Iliiil there are problems in thai province different from Ihose in Ilio oilier nine. The separa- tists feel Iliat ceding from confedera- lion is the only way Iheir heritage has an oppoilunilv for survival. But federalists, who also wish to retain their liedtaRe guaranteed So long ago. see no survival in ceding. Wisely Air. llourassa recognizes that hysterical and ill-advised de- mands'on the established order quite often result in abrupt concession, sometimes merely for peace at any price. The premier obviously knows that in Lhc Parti Qucbccois at flie present there are few politicians cap- able of picking up Ihc pieces if their separatist demands should be met. Quebec then would be in far worse shape than even the FLQ has been trying unsuccessfully to sell to the country in Ihc last few years. MELBOURNE Canada's experiences in controlling the inflow o[ capital and Ilic ownership of cor- porations will provide u useful background for a fr-fleral in- vestigation inlo foreign owner- ship and control of Australian cnlc-rprises by a senate select committee. Factors which make this niiiv inquiry politically inlcr- psling are lhat the minority Democratic Labor party used its balance of power in the senate to launch the inquiry, the Labor parly opposition entliusiaslically supports it and the government, lacking a sen- ale majority to il, re- luclanlly agreed to participate. The federal government, for its own political reasons, is waiting until Parliament re- sumes in late February to an- nounce membership of Ihc sen- ate probe into Ihe rise and Jail of mining and investment com- panies, share manipulations and the credibility of many w h o m Australian investors rent Canadian standards he is entit- led lo public assistance of some kind. 11 there is work available for him and he wants to work, surely it is belter thai he should work than live on public welfare. The job he has taken is temporary. It calls for special talents, which fie lias. The wages are ordinary S150 a week. II is not a civil service posi- tion. He is not working for the gov- ernnienl. Ills politics arc offensive to most people, but surely a person's politics should nol be a faclor in his employment. Part of his complaint with Cana- dian society, part of Ihe reason lor liis fanatical separatism, is the charge lhal Ihe system rejects such people. Surely more good than harm can accrue to Canatla by demonstrat- ing that the system can absorb such a man as Pierre Valliercs. "Trouble is they say an hour after a Chinese trip you're ready for another Letters to the editor It, is clear that nothing is clear in Ulster We hope thai Mr. Hunt will be pleased lhal "people who value truth and fairness here let you know (heir minds." His certainly about what is happening in Northern Ireland is surprising. It seems to us that the ''oilier sources of news" to which lie refers (though he does nol always distinguish between news and comment, fact and thought) make it quite clear thai nothing is clear. Thai a priest or priests say Ihey saw no shooting at or pro- vocalion of the troops cannot be regarded as proof Lhat there was none, even though we do not presume lo donbl that the priests report what Ihey believe is to be Inie. No one denies that the troops opened fire, or that the deaths arc tragic. No one, either, seriously doubts that arms searches have been made, in homes and at night. Does anyone in his sense, how- ever, argue lhat the troops should keep office hours, so that the IRA can pursue their oflen inept and almost always bloody pyrotechnics undis- turbed? Here Is (act nol a thought. The majority of the people of the six counties pre- fer to remain associated with the Crown. Another fact: indis- putably, discrimination and jerrymandering have long been exerted against the internment laws. Yet. precious tittle recog- nition has been given to the fact thai the Faulkner govern- ment has instituted electoral reforms. Men of sense do not expect every injustice to be wiped ou! overnight, especially in view of the generations of hatred on both sides. There seems little hoiic for peace in Ireland so long as the people continue to be dazzled hy such tawdry leaders as Mr. Paisley and Miss Devlin. The CBC report of Ihe N'cwry inarch lasl Sunday slated lhal because the marchers followed the leaders' orders, Hie event passed off peacefully. As a matter of incidental interest, the organizer of the march de- clared it was "our intention to hold an illegal march'' lo show "we have no respect for their laws." However, il seems lhal Tommy can'l win: "innocent" civilians, out parading in de- fiance of a law prohibiting Pro- testant as well as Catholic marches, get shot, as in Ixm- donderry, so Tommy is a mur- derer. Never mind the investi- gation let's have the verdict The fact lhat the next lime the 1080 poison: the true predator hunt Since nobody will v.rite in support of Ihe prodalor luint, maybe this will provide somc- thing to Ihmk about I consider coyotcf mr-! foxrs Rame animals and Ihey Miould Iw governed as such. 1 have shot nearly all I be big gamn animals, including wolf, in Al- berta and consider varmint hunting a.s my nmr.bcr one sport.

Here is a quote from Arnold Edinhorough: "Any city which believes land is more import-ant than people, thai development is always righl, and thai business is the only claimant lo a voice in city business, is doomed. It is doom- ed because of the violence which will result in such a soul- less, cross conurbalion, it is doomed because of the strangu- lation which incoming traffic, funnelled in on six lane high- ways, will effect, il is doomed because it will be out of step with ii growing awareness of human dignity A uiNCLciiNtii) ed.

A coyote has lo eat only a very small quantity of the treated meal to become violcnl- ]y ill. Most coyotes travel fron? one mile to (en miles before dying and carcasses are sel- dom found in Ihe vicini'y of the poison bail station. Death is quite slow and brutal, following periods of crazed behavior and violent, convulsions. Pnme ani- mals may die within 20 minutes and most within 2-1 hours, de- pending on the amount of eaten. II is certain death for any other animals thai feed on the carcass. I! kills bears, foxes, badgers, bnbcal.s, lyn.v, hawks, owls, and eagles. Thai's something lo think about. TIM-: Lclhhndgc.
