Paul II e 11 y e r. the former Liberal member of Parliamenl who launched Action Crncda, says his movement would gar- ner "more than one mil lion voles" if it ran a full slate of candidates in a federal election now. Mr. Hellyer, 47, independent MP for Toronto Trinity, said in an interview at Hamilton the finding was made in a private poll conducted recently. In the June, 1968, federal elcc- t.ion, the Liberals polled 3.0 mil- lion votes, compared with 2.5 million for the Conservatives. The N'ew Democratic Party polled 1.3 million and Social Credit A Romanian general has been executed by a firing squad for The officer was identified as Geu.

The information said Serb I was. shot some time lasl monlh j aflcr his arrest at the end of 1971 and a subsequent trial be- fore a military court. Vesna Vulovic, the blonde stewardess who. survived a 000 foot Tall from an exploded airplane, underwent successful surgery today in Prague.

No more operations are planned Former Argentine presid e n I Juan Peron is willing lo run for president in Argentine general elections in March, 1973, but he wants Ihe election brought for- ward lo Ihis year. Perm's personal representa- tive. Hector Campora, said the 76 year old former presi- denl "is not opposed lo his can- ditkcy if that's what the people want." But observers said Peron, who went into exile after a mili- tary uprising ended his n i n e- year iron rule in September, 1955, is unlikely ever lo return to Argentina although he still commands the support and loy- alty of millions of Argentines. Instead, tbey believe the ex- diotator is manoeuvring lo en- sure victory at the polls for his badly-splil followers. Former Teamster boss James Hoffn, relreased from prison on parole by President Nixon two months ago, said in a television interview Nixon is the best qual- ified man at llus time to be president. Hoffa rejected suggestions he was freed for political reasons. "I don't beb'eve he snapped when asked if Ire was paroled to strengllien Nixon's support among the Teamsters Union, which Hoffa formerly headed. OTTAWA (CP) The wide- spread use of voluntary arbitra- tion to replace strikes, advo- cated by a leading U.S. labor leader Sunday, is not supported by Ihe Canadian Labor Con- gress. William Dodge, secretary- treasurer of the CLC, said Mon- day that nothing prevenls peo- ple from accepting volunlary mediation or arbitration as a means of settling labor disputes. "But we don't think many people will Iw interested in that melhod of settlement, and we don't think it would affect mate- rially the incidence of strikes. "We're greatly concerned about the fact that it would be a very short slep from wide- spread voluntary arbitration to compulsory arbitration imposed by government legislation." George Mcany, head of the 16-million member AFL-CIO, said Sunday he favors binding arbitration, voluntarily agreed upon, as a substitute for strikes. Mr. Mcany said: "There is a growing fcelir.g that strikes of people gelling a year or more just don'l make sense." The AFL-CIO had sel up a committee lo study whether a formula could be evolved to make binding arbitration morc- or-less (be accepted practice. Mr. Dodge said Mr. Meany appeared to be observing that Find man's body in aparlniciil CALGARY (CP) Ester Calgary man was found wilh a Palicz of Calgary today was remanded to Feb. 21 on a charge of non-capital murder following the death of Sieve Richter at a southwest apart- ment during the weekend.

BLOOD NEEDED A major operation can require up lo 20 pints of blood to be transfused. high employees' salaries made it difficult for unions lo build up slrike funds large enough lo keep their people going during a slrike. It was difficult, he said, to I compensate a striking employee I wilh a house mortgage, car pay- ments, and children m univer- sity. "In the old days you gave him I enough to buy a sack of pola- I Iocs." i Despite this modern hurdle, he said the CLC has "always fell that Ihe right lo strike is an essential ingredienl in bringing aboul conditions for fair settle- ment." Mr. Mcany suggested that two sides in a dispute could agree (o accept binding arbitration for one year. GEORGE MEANY faces arbitration Worker plunges from scaffold onto hwiter EDMONTON (CP) De- metro Zaplolynsky, 49, of Ed- monton fell from a scaffold yesterday onto a propane heater. The healer exploded caus- ing considerable damage lo the engineering building at the Universily of Alberta. No e s t i m a e of damage was available. Mr. Zaplotjiishy, a con- struction worker, was report ed in satisfactory condition in hospital with burns to his hands and neck. School districts canh afford staff EDMONTON (CP) -A lack of funds has left 29 Catholic school districts in Alberta with- out superintendents, the Alber- ta Catholic School Trustees As- sociation said here. The association, m its annual brief lo the cabinet, said the districts are small individual units mainly in rural areas. Representing Alberta's 49 Ca- tholic school boards, the associ- ation urged the province to al- low Ihe districts lo group lo en- able them to hire the necessary personnel. NEW FORMULA A special grant was rpquesled to finance the combined hiring. The association also recom- mended that provincial school foundalion grains bo provided on a pcr-sludeiil basis instead of Ihe present formula which uses classroom as a hast1. The truslcos said the class room unil, a tracher and 2li students, is unfair to many small .soparaio school clisiriiMs in rural areas which have less than 26 students. "The province also was asked not lo proceed with any new legislation directly affecting the nature of Catholic schools until the association has conducted a comprehensive review of the reports to be completed by early spring of 1973. The association plans to ap- point several committees throughout the province by Sep- tember with reports to be com- leted by early spring of 1973. The provincial government also was asked to endorse the development of religious studies departments at Alberta univer- sities. "We hope thai Ihe gov- ernment would encourage such studies and support them on a high priority basis.'1 Hugh Caudel. Calgary sopa- j rale school trustee and an as- soc-ialiou director, said informal ro.qucsls lor a religious study department at Ihe University of Calgary had been rejected.
