EDMONTON (CP) A proposal that teachers should be allowed to enter private practice in the same way doctors or lawyers do was outlined Friday by Terry Kennedy, a high school teacher from North York, Ont. Mr. Kennedy told an Edmonton District Teachers' Convention teachers in private practice would operate as individuals or in groups or clinics. Some would specialize in certain types of teaching as for the gifted or slow others would teach general subjects. Under Mr. Kennedy's plant described as Educare 'similar to Medicare', a teacher would have a minimum of a doctorate before being approved by the teachers' association. Students would select their teachers and fees would be paid by the government. The proposed system would be supplemented by government-operated diagnostic centres which would assess the needs of students. The centres also would provide the necessary evaluation of teacher clinics. He said teachers must choose now between union- type action, under which they will always be salaried workers, of professionalism in the true sense of the word. GAME HUNTING OUT DAR ES SALAAM (AP) Big game hunting for trophies and skins will be permanently banned in Tanzania, and professional hunters will never be allowed to operate in the country again, the government says. A spokesman said peasants will be allowed to hunt certain animals for meat. By RICHARD EDER New York Times Service WOKING, England The old man advanced into the room slowly, his head bent forward, his right hand held out to be shaken. He seated himself carefully in a yellow armchair beside the fireplace, where a log fire burned. It was a spacious room with a pale carpet, furniture of a kind that museums display with cords across so people won't sit down, and on the walls a harbor scene by Vernat, a landscape with skater by Van Averkampf. The most expensive thing in the room was J. Paul Getty in the yellow armchair. Dressed in black with a high white collar, he fixed his interviewer with an unwavering stare and spoke in a low voice without resonance, haltingly, with long silences. The interview took place in advance of the announcement that Getty would establish a prize for services to the wildlife of the world. There is no way to be sure, but as age 81 Getty is probably the richest man in the world. With a majority or controlling interest in the Getty Oil Company and nearly 200 other companies, his fortune was once estimated at billion. Getty, an American who has chosen to live in England for the last 20 years, inherited the business and considerable wealth from his father. But his own single minded concentration on oil has multiplied this wealth many times. Now with his vast oil reserves, and the price of oil so sharply up, his holdings have increased. Those associates willing to make a guess put his worth at anywhere from billion to billion. "Actually, I've never felt Getty said, "because I've always been in business where I was a moderate sized fellow compared to Exxon, Royal Dutch Shell, Texaco, Gulf, Standard of California. I'm a small sized fellow, a small sized outfit, so I've never had delusions of grandeur. Symfrionese Liberation Army surfaced four months ago BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) The Symbionese Liberation Army which claims re- sponsibility for. kidnapping Patricia Hearst and slaying a school official earlier, had never been heard from four months ago. "Communique No. 1" on Nov. 7, claimed the group had killed Oakland school superintendent Marcus Foster and wounded Robert Blackburn, his chief deputy, the day before. The communique, a letter, Florida hard hit by gas shortage MIAMI (CP) Canadians driving to Florida for their winter holidays somehow manage to get by but most have to stick to the main highways to ensure that their tanks don't run dry. "I've just been talking to some people who drove'back to Collingwood, Ont., and Ottawa and they had no trouble getting gas along the way." says Clyde Blackburn, former Ottawa newspaper man who spends his winters in St. Petersburg. To Canadians driving south, Blackburn offered this advice: "The thing to do in travelling in this country is to stay o'n th'e interstate highways. That's where you do best." Nevertheless motorists, in- cluding those from the state and those from elsewhere, are still encountering difficulties, leading the Canadian Automo- bile Association to advise drivers to avoid U.S. travel Grain price increase pondered OTTAWA (CP) The government is considering higher interim payments to wheat and barley producers out there are complications involved, says Otto Lang, minister responsible for the wheat board. Mr. Lang was commenting on a call by Jack Murta (PC Lisgar) for the board to release million being withheld from payment. Mr. Murta said the board is paying an initial price of a bushel at a time when wheat is selling at a bushel and that the interim price should be raised by for wheat and for barley. Mr. Lang said the board does not have million on hand but the fund may soon reach that level. "Of course it does have, in the accounting sense, a certain amount of farmers' money that it is accumulating in the pool." He said there was concern about raising the initial price immediately and then, at a later date, perhaps having to reduce it Any such action would indicate to buyers of Canadian grain that the price had softened. until gasoline supplies are fully assured. "Florida is extremely hard hit right now." the association said in an Ottawa statement Friday. INDUSTRY WORRIED The difficulty in Florida and other states is that tankers, moving to refineries to fill up with gasoline, sometimes find trucker pickets blocking their way. A number of sources agree that the U.S. truckers' strike has aggravated the sup- ply situation. Blackburn reported that the situation is particularly difficult in the southern part ol Florida where supplies are "a hit-and-miss affair." Supplies were scarce in an area south of Tampa, but "reasonably good" in the northern part of the state. In many areas, drivers have to line up to obtain gas and some stations limit sales to to each car. But on the whole the fact that a driver shows up with an out-of-state licence plate doesn't mean he is turned away. So, far, there have been no reports of drivers being actually stranded for lack of gas. RATIONING FEARED Bat state industries are worried Hal Cohen of the Miami Beach tourist development authority believes gas rationing will start by spring, estimating it may cut Florida tourism by 40 to 50 per cent. The state was hit at the end of January when monthly gas allocations petered out and produced line- ups at the gas pumps. From the gracious old south to the slick Miami Beach, there are problems in paradise as Florida tries to assess its energy future. Everybody from government officials to hotel operators says planning would be a lot simpler if officials in Washington would agree on an assessment of the crisis. "On the one hand, you've got the president and some of his spokesmen telling you not to worry, there won't be any gas rationing." says Cohen "On the other hand, energy experts tell you the crisis is bad and are drawing up rationing plans. "I don't think anyone believes they're printing those coupons for fun. If the administration wants to destroy the tourist industry in America, there's no better way to do it than a coupon- rationing system. How many people are going to be able to save enough coupons for a 2-OWVmile round mailed from San Francisco to a Berkeley radio station and newspapers, touched off an ef- fort by authorities to find out more a'bout what U.S. Attorney General William Saxbe has called a baffling organization. Police in Oakland say the SLA is .a young, multiracial revolutionary group with at least 25 heavily armed members. Captain John Lothrop said it is "extremely dangerous" and police said they seized guns, bombs, cyanide and dossiers on businessmen from a SLA headquarters in nearby Concord. The Nov. 7 letter said Foster and Blackburn were marked as targets for promoting a "police in the schools" and student identification card program, and warned that school board supporters of the project would be executed. It said cyanide bullets had been used in the shootings, a fact later confirmed by police. The Oakland school board dropped the identification card program Nov. 14. WARNING WITHDRAWN "Communique No. 2" on Nov. 17, a letter mailed to the Oakland Tribune, rescinded the "shoot on sight" warnings for school board members. On Jan. 10, Joseph Rerniro, 27, and Russell Little, 24, were arrested after a Shootout with a policeman who made a routine traffic stop in nearby Concord. Police said they found SLA literature and weapons in their van registered to a Concord residence. That night a fire damaged the residence. When the fire was extinguished, police said they found bombs, cyanide, lists of potential kidnap .victims and group literature. They said the house was a SLA headquarters. On Jan. 11, a warrant was issued charging Nancy Ling Perry, said to have been living in the house, with the arson fire. On Jan. 17, a "Letter to the People" signed by Mrs. now calling herself discussed her philosophy and said to Little and Remiro "you have not been forgotten and you will be defended." Little and Remiro, charged with murdering Foster, are being held in San Quentin prison. On Feb. 4, Miss Hearst was kidnapped, and on Feb. 7, "Communique No. 3" arrived at radio station KPFA. saying Miss Hearst was a "prisoner of war" who would not be harmed unless an attempt was made to rescue her or harm SLA members. Andras denies UIC probe OTTAWA (CP) Manpower Minister Robert Andras said Friday he has no intention of setting up a public inquiry into the operations of (he Unemployment Insurance Commission, adding that remarks he made earlier this week had been misinterpreted. Mr. Andras had been reported as saying at a Canadian Construction Association meeting in Quebec City that he was considering an appointment of a commission to study the agency's operations. But in a telephone interview from Cobalt, Ont, Mr. Andras said he had been asked by the association for an inquiry but was not "favorably disposed." "I don't see a justification or the benefit of a public inquiry." he said. The oomiission will be open to analysis by the commons manpower standing committee, he added. Police seek break-in clues City police and RCMP are investigating a series of break-ins which occurred early this morning. Three service stations were broken into, and an attempt made to break into another. Police believe the break-ins were all done by the same persons. One hundred dollars in cash was taken from the Gulf Service Centre, 3316 1st Ave. S., after entry was gained through a window. Alcan Service Station, 1313 Mayor Magrath Drive, lost 945 in cash and a three-quarter ton service truck which was parked inside. Green Acres Turbo, No. 4 Highway, was also broken into, but the only thing taken was a gallon of anti-freeze. An attempt to enter Eastway Esso, 3110 1st Ave. S., was apparently made. Police said a door was damaged. Investigations are continuing. "I've always" he paused and drew a deep breath "had a place for every dollar that came in. 'I've never seen the day where I could another pause "that I felt rich. Generally, you worry about paying the bills." His estate here, Sutton Place, is a splendid 16th century Tudor mansion in the rolling Surrey countryside 25 miles or so southwest of London. A visitor's car stops at a gate set between two brick lodges. The guards inspect it without emerging, the gate opens by remote control and the visitor passes down a winding lane for a mile or so, past grazing cows, gardeners and signs reading "beware of fierce dogs" into a courtyard. Getty is not exactly a recluse, but he is isolated. In view of his wealth, his avoidance of any public life, a long habit of suspicion about the motives of those who manage to approach him and what even his associates speak of as a lack of intimate relationships, talking with him is something like interviewing a prisoner in solitary confinement. He runs all his affairs from Sutton Place, and nowadays he rarely even goes to London. The kidnapping of his grandson, J. Paul Getty III, in Rome last summer has served to confine him still further, both for security reasons and because he does not want to be asked about it. The only indirect reference to the kidnapping came when he was asked if he worried about his own safety. "Well, it's something to think he replied, "though I never let it dominate my thoughts. I think the more publicity you have, the more you're in the public eye, the worse it is." Asked about his recreations, his pleasures, he said he liked to swim and walk on the beach. He likes adventure books. He has no particular interest in fine food or fine wine. "Alcohol was never my he said. "Divorce courts were my problem." Was there a conflict between the kind of success he worked at and a happy marriage? It seemed that he would not answer, and then he said suddenly: "I think women like failure." "Yes, there was a pause. "A man that's very successful very often doesn't have much success with marriage. I think women feel they're more important to a failure. You probably know a number of cases yourself of men considered failures who have very happy marriages. A hard working, go ahead sort of fellow generally winds up in the divorce courts." As for the oil crisis, Getty seemed untroubled about it. This was perhaps natural. Until recently, he said his profits averaged only about five per cent of assets; now, with the higher prices, there were signs that profits would rise to 10 per cent. In the long run, he agreed, the strain on resources would force the consumption of energy to drop, and this would be no bad thing. "People never had this idea he said. "People never expected to go 50 miles to have lunch with somebody, and drive SO miles back. It's only our own generation that's had that. I wonder how much energy my great great grandfather expended in his lifetime. I think it would be very small, though he probably took more physical exercise than you or J. PAUL GETTY Viet Cong suffer losses From AP-Reuter SAIGON (CP) Viet Cong forces have suffered their heaviest losses in a single action this year after a two- day battle with a government relief column in the central highlands province of Pleiku, the South Vietnamese military command reported Sunday. It said 81 Viet Cong troops were killed nearly 48 hours after North Vietnamese forces shelled and attacked the column of several thousand men 14 miles southwest of Pleiku. The command said South Vietnamese troops lost 17 men killed and 15 wounded. Carmen draws 160 from south Calgary, of course, dominated it, but it was the Southern Alberta opera association in the Southern Jubilee Auditorium, with Southern Albertans in the cast and in the audience. From Lethbridge alone 160 people went to Calgary Saturday night for the last performance of Carmen. It was the first opera many of them had ever experienced, and Mrs. Jane Alexander. Lethbridge representative for the association, had briefings en route for the 115 people who went up there on three special buses. The choruses were amateurs but the eleven members of the cast, including Mrs. Nora Rose of Lethbridge, were all professionals. Ann Howard of London sang the title part. Mrs. Alexander, wife of a Lethbridge physician, got involved through her long- standing friendship with Miss Howard, including having the same teacher at one point. Miss Howard, now attached to Sadler's Wells, has done Carmen many times but this was only her second effort in French; the other was in New Orleans three years ago. She joined the Calgary rehearsals on January 28. for the performances on February 7 and 9. Both were sell-outs. The association has two nights of Madam Butterfly booked for the end of November, and two nights of Faust (with Jerome HInes) in April, but thereafter it may go to three or four nights. This is only its second season, and in reserving the auditorium well in advance it wasn't sure what the response would be. Now is is pleased.
