2 THI ItTHMIDCI HfltAlD Mwrarr 1i, NATO pullout stands OSLO (Reuter) Donald Macdonald, Canada's defence minister, has ruled out any pos- sibility of a revision of Canada's decision to withdraw troops from Europe. After visiting NATO's north- ern flank in north Norway, Mac- donald told a news conference here Friday: "I did not see anything here that might interfere with the de- cision to withdraw Canadian troops from Germany. "However I did see the way In which Canadian troops could be helpful in solving Norwegian defence problems." The Canadian defence rninls- ter returns today to Canada fol- lowing a five-day visit in Nor- way during which he has had talks with his Norwegian coun- terpart, Gunnar Hellesen. He also inspected a Canadian battalion participating in the Pygmy Chief winter exercise at Bardufoss. The battalion is part of a mo- bile brigade with heavier equip- ment which should be able to move within 30 days after being called on, Macdonald said. He said co-operation between Norwegian and Canadian forces is excellent. Break-ins reported at Macleod FORT MACLEOD Two break-ins occurred here Fri- day evening.

Victims of Quake return to homes LOS ANGELES (AP) Eighty thousand persons have returned home after three nights in motels, tents or friends' houses wondering whether an earthquake dam- aged dam near then- prosperous suburb would burst. Officials ordered the evacua- tion of a 20-square-mile area after Tuesday's earthquake cracked the concrete facing of the earthen Van Norman Dam containing the city's largest re- servoir. Workers pumped out million of the reservoir's million gallons of water. Friday there was no more danger of a rupture and flooding. The death toll throughout the Los Angeles area rose to 61, in- cluding 42 who died when a .vet- erans hospital collapsed. Two persons still are missing. The county engineer has said the earthquake damage in Los Angeles County could reach million. Cars were lined up for three blocks at the edge of the evacu- ated San Fernando Valley area in 90-degree afternoon heat as police removed the barricades. As police continued patrolling todiscouragelooters, cars streamed in slowly, laden with sleeping bags, bottled water and clothing. Some householders Immedi- ately turned sprinklers on parched lawns. But most found they had no water because of broken mains. BELGRADE (AP) Presi- den Tito of Yugoslavia has sent a message to President Nixon asking him to transmit his "most sincere sympathies" to the families of those killed in the California earthquake.

Jeanette Boyd had both legs amputated below the knee as a result of the blast. She was in fair condition in hospital. Police are questioning her husband, Dallas Boyd, for whom the bomb is believed to have been intended. An RCMP spokesman said the investiga- tion will probably take "some considerable time." At least four sticks .of dyna- mite were planted in the car and exploded when Mrs. Boyd turned on the ignition. Her hus- band had left their house about half an hour before the explo- sion. Boyd is the owner of a carpet cleaning company. AGREEMENT SIGNED BONN (AP) West Germany and Israel signed an air traffic agreement Friday covering flights between the two coun- tries. knife lawyer and elected coun- cil member David Searte who said "it is inconceivable to have the RCMP's G Division headquartered outside of the territories." "It's basically a matter of G Division, which bandies police matters in the north, being bet- ter able to communicate and respond to the needs of the peo- ple it serves." Council also agreed to ask that the crows attorney for the territories and his staff be transferred from the authority of the federal department of justice to the territorial depart- ment of legal affairs. Mr. Searle said that under the present system, enforce- ment and its legislative arms do not enjoy close liaison in the performance of judicial func- tions in the north. Commissioner Stuart Hodg- son said the Canadian Broad- casting Corp. northern service headquarters should be located in the territories. "The CBC's administrative headquarters for northern ser- vice is inadequate. The only way to improve the situation is to move north from Ottawa." Tom. Butters, an Inuvik pub- lisher and elected council member, criticized journalists for writing misleading stories about the north. "Too frequently journalists on a junket to the north are totally irresponsible. Their re- ports are utter nonsense." Wheat payment announced OTTAWA federal government will make a pay- ment averaging 19 cents a bushel on soft white spring wheat marketed during the 1968-69 crop year, the agricul- t u r e department announced Friday. This payment will amount to and will apply to the 1.3 million bushels of this class of wheat marketed that year. Consumer index climbs Food leads price parade OTTAWA (CP) Retail prices in Canada advanced on a broad front in January to push the consumer price index ahead by the biggest monthly margin since last July. Food prices, which fell by 3.2 per cent in 1970 and held down the all-items index in the last four months of the year, led the January turnaround with an ad- vance of seven-tenths of one per cent, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported here. The all-items index, based on 100 points for 1961 prices, moved ahead to 130.3 points from 129.8 in December and 128.2 a year earlier. However, it remained below the peak read- ing of 130.5 points last July and August. The index, which had been racing ahead at an annual rate of about five per cent through 1969 and into 1970, stood 1.5 per cent up on the reading in Janu- ary, 1970. The index indicates roughly that a broad range of goods and services valued at in 1961 had risen in price to in January, 1970, reached a peak of last summer and stood at last month. DBS said prices of beef, poul- try and fresh vegetables and fruit led the partly-seasonal in- crease in food bills. SOJEE ARE LOWER However, the index for gro- ceries and restaurant meals re- mained 2.8 per cent lower than it was a year earlier and was 4.1 per cent below the peak reading last August. The food component accounts for more than one-quarter of the all-items index. The housing index, which cov- ers home-ownership costs, rents and prices for furnishings and household operation, continued its unfaltering upward climb to a point 4.7 per cent ahead of January, 1970. The housing index makes up almost one- third of the all-items index. The costs of buying or repair- ing a house rose by one per cent in a single month, while rents edged up marginally. Price increases for linoleum and average 1.3 per cent in the the biggest since The TOWN CHEF IOCATED IN THE PROFESSIONAL BUILDING DOWNTOWN LETHBRIDGE Serves Afternoon Tea (or Coffee) EVERY AFTERNOON by The Dining Room Fireplace Midwinter sales accounted for a decline of seven-tenths of one per cent in the clothing index, repeating the pattern of a year earlier. Higher gasoline prices in some Ontario and Prairie cities helped to generate a marginal increase in the transportatioi index, which was three per cent ahead of January, 1970. OTHERS UNCHANGED Increased fees charged by dentists in British Columbia off- set price declines for some toi- letry items to leave the index for health and personal care un changed. The personal-care part of thai component, which covers such items as toothpaste and hair- dressing, was just over two per cent aiead of January, 1970, the narrowest 12-month advance in more than seven years. However, advancing health- care charges brought the year- to-year increase in the whole component to almost three per cent. An advance In the recreation and-reading index resulted en tirely from an increase, in news- paper prices. Bates for newspapers gener ally were up by 15 per cent in a year. The index for recreation and reading was up by 4.8 per cent, the biggest year-to-year advance of any of the seven main components of the con sumer price index. Cigarette manufacturers raised prices, bringing the firs advance in the tobacco and al cohol index in a year.

R- t. JARDINE, Chairman I. R. RHODES. Secretory VICTORIA (CP) Rehabili- tation Minister Pml Gaglardi played back an oft-heard pro- vincial government record Fri- day, blaming the federal gov- ernment for British Columbia's unemployment and welfare problems. Ami inflationary measures taken by Ottawa had contrib- uted greatly to the unemploy- ment situation, Mr. Gaglardi told the legislature, adding that he did not criticize the aims of the federal government in this regard but only the methods. He charged that the white paper on taxation had "shatter- ed the confidence of every en- terpriser right across the na- Mr. Gaglardi told the houa of a program his department had set up to get people off welfare. Under the program, persons on welfare would spend three to six months in on-the-job training programs, learning about "work atmosphere" well as practical skills. Tta federal government pays 50 per cent of the wages and the pro- vincial government and em- ployers share the remaining SO per cent. 'Unctuous goo9 offered by press OTTAWA (CP) Some news- papers are so afraid of provok- ing anyone "that what they dish out is an unctuous, gelatinous the Senate was told. Senator Donald Cameron (Ind-L Alberta) said such newspapers should take a more partisan stand on the issues they report. "One of the reasons for the dullness of too many of our newspapers is that we do not know what they stand for." Senator Cameron was speak- ing in the Senate debate on the report for the special Senate committee on the mass inedia. Another reason for dull news- papers was the loss of "per- sonal journalism" typified by Senator Grattan O'Leary (PC- editor emeritus of the Ottawa Journal, and the late John W. Dafoe, a former editor of the Winnipeg Free Press, Senator Cameron said. "Now that newspapers have become big corporations ire have substituted board-room journalism for personal journal- ism and we have lost something that I hope we can return in the not too distant future." Senator Cameron proposed the establishment of a press council, including representa- tives from outside the profes- sion, to improve the training and quality of journalists. He said he was sometimes ap- palled at the "young, inexperi- enced and untrained" reporters in the Parliamentary Press Gal- lery. As for private broadcasters, Senator Cameron labelled as "nonsense" then- claims that they are over-regulated by the Canadian Radio-Television Com- mission. The broadcasters had asked for more freedom to use their ingenuity but "I'd like to see more evidence of that ingenu- ity."
