The panel stopped well short o f recommending legalizing marijuana completely, but be- lieves a person should be per- mitted to smoke it in the pri- vacy of his home. 'It's an amazing about a source close to the panel said. The finishing touches are being put on the recommendations be- fore they are submitted to Nixon. The commission's view on the use of marijuana was unex- pected because its make-up is mainly conservative. Nine of its M members were chosen by Nixon, who has adopted a firm Economic issue top election talk WOODSTOC.K Ont. (CP) Patrick Mahoney. newly-ap- pointed federal minister o f state, said Monday economic nationalism will be the most im- portant issue in the forthcoming federal election. Mr. Mahoney. in a speech to a local Liberal association, said abortion, drugs and capital pun- ishment would also be impor- tant but would not polarize the country as much as the eco- nomic issue. Ht said the opposition's stand on the major Issue would vary according to regions. Mr. Mahoney was critical of Hie New Democratic Party and its Waffle faction for their stand on economic nationalism. He suggested that the NDP stance resulted from being part of the hierarchy of the Canadian Labor Congress which he said is not resources orientated. Mr. Mahoney said he thought Canada's economic relationship with the United States a "fact" and described it as "comfortable." Former Pincher mail named Instant Print Copy Div. 1269 Third Aye.

Sunday, another sin- gle-engine aircraft went doivn in a clear area 15 miles north of Ihe city. Allen Milne, aljout 24, and both of new manager CALGARY (CP) Darnl Carlson of Hanna, Alta., has been named secretary-man- ager of the Western Slock Growers' Association, replac- ing Chris Mills who now is western representative for the Canadian Cattlemen's Associa- tion. Mr. Carlson, named to the position by president Tom Gil- christ, is from the Pincher Creek area but has been dis- trict agriculturist at Hanna for posilion against more liberal marijuana laws. The four other members were appointed by Congress. Shortly after appointing the panel last year, Nixon told a news conference: Even if the commission does recommend that it be legalized, I will not follow that recommendation." The panel, while opposed to making marijuana-smoking fully legal, suggests that use of the drug should not longer make a person a criminal. MODERATE USE OK A similar position was taken last week by Dr. Bertram Brown, director of the govern- ment's Mental Health Institute, in releasing a study showing no unhealthy effects had been de- tected from moderate use ol marijuana by normal adults. The president's commission on marijuana use, headed by former Republican governor Raymond Shafer of Pennsyl- vania, compares marijuana with alcohol during the final years of prohibition in the early 1930s, informed sources said. An estimated 24 million Americans, or one in eight of the entire population, have smoked marijuana, commission surveys found. The commission was divided in how far it should go in rec- ommending an easing of the marijuana laws. The majority feel it should continue to be a crime to grow it, sell it, trans- port :t or even give it to a friend, sources said. Some of these limitations were questioned in a footnote to the report by more liberal com- mission members including Sen- ator Jacob Javifs of New York While House dinner for him Monday night came as spokes- men sketched a rough itinerary for Nixon's week-long China visit. Included are a series of meet- ings with Communist leaders, a round of four banquets in three cities and sightseeing trips to the Great Wall and other Chinese shrines. Nixon leaves Tliursday on the first leg of his Journey. A few hours before greeting Malraux, the White House an- nounced Nixon was taking steps to place China on the pame trade footing as the Soviet Union and most other Eastern European Communist countries. While rejecting suggestions that timing of the announce- ment was bnked to Nixon's fast-approaching departure for China, Presidential Press Secre- tary Ronald L. Ziegler said: "We hope the People's Republic of China will be receptive to this step. We hope they would welcome this additional step forward in opening up trade.'1 HEAVY MACHINERY Basically, Nixon's actions allow the export to China of such U.S. .products as locomo- tives, construction equipment, industrial chemicals, internal combustion engines nnd rolling mills. Ziegler, outlining ft "very rough itinerary" said the presi- dent will use Chinese-bum lim- ousines in China and will fly from Peking to i'angchow In an airplane supplied by the Chinese first time he will have used a non-U.S. air- craft during his extensive trav- els. The president, Mrs. Nixon and tire official party of 13 White House and department ad- visers leave Thursday for Ha- waii, where they will spend two nights and one day before head- ing on to Guam. From Guam, Nixon will fly to Shanghai, arriving Monday, Feb. 21 and on to Peking, arriv- ing at a.m. Monday (lOMO p.m. EST Nixon will have a series of meetings with Premier Chou En- and Senator Harold Hughes 'lnd possibly M a o Tsc- Umg.

The liberal group is reported to feel if would he inconsistent to permit a person to smoke marijuana in his home but make it an offence for him to give it to a visitor. Liberal members of the panel also were concerned about the possibility of police raids on pri- vate homes in search of mari- juana if any ambiguity existed on a person's rights to posses the drug. in Peking. On Feb. 26, the American del- egation will fly to the resort city of Hangchow. There thev will take a boat tour and attend a banquet before flying Feb. 27 to Shanghai for an industrial exhi- bition nnd another banquet.

CBC technicians walkout spreads By TUB CANADIAN PRESS CBC technicians remained off UK job today in four Saskatche- wan centres, as well as in Hali- fax, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. Plan daily index on air pollution CALGARY (CP) Daily air pollution indexes for Calgary and Edmonton will be issued within a month, says Eugene Kupchanko of the Alberta en- viionment department. The department will also pro- vide monthly summaries of air pollutants in the cities, said the director of pollution control. The Edmonton residents said in an interview Monday engi- neers were trybg to decide what pollutants to include In the daily index, which could be made available along with weather reports. Among j n g redienls which may be included are hydrocar- bons and oxides of nitrogen, which combine in the presence of sunlight to produce smog, and oxidants and a measure of haze. Previously, the department issued only annual summaries of air pollutants in the cities. In Monclon, N.B., they re- turned to work after being out since Sunday in the scries of ro- tating strikes which began Jan. 21. The strikes are being called by the National Association of Broadcast Em- ployees and Technicians in their contract dispute with the public- ly-owned coi-poralion, The Saskatchewan centres af- fected arc Reglna, Saskatoon, Moose Jaw and Watrous. A CBC spokesman said tech- nicians remained out in Edmon- ton for refusing to guarantee they would remain on the job for a full shift. Vancouver tech- nicians, off the job since last Tuesday, were still out for the same reason. In Calgary, the men are out because they refuse to guaran- tee that they will not shut down equipment in mid-shift. The CBC has been asking such guarantees, and giving technicians who are out specific reporting times, in nn effort to see lhat only "useful and pro- ductive work" is done. The technicians call this tactic a lockout. This was not involved in Hali- fax, however, where the work stoppage was just a continua- tion of the rotating strikes. The NABET members have rejected a conciliation report which recommended a six-per- cent wage increase retroactive to last July and an additional 4% per cent next July in a 21- monLli contract. Weather and road report LPre M 19 36 26 30 9 12 -2 6 -1 ai 20 .Oil .05 .03 .61 4 .01 The announcement is ex- pected to be based on proposals in the Jan. 26 report o[ the Le- Dain Commission on non-medi- cal use of drugs. The LeDain report recom- mended establishment of a methadonc maintenance pro- gram for heroin pro- posal that drew support Monday from tlie Canadian Medical As- sociation. j The LcDain proposals would involve more stringent regula- tion of methadonc, an addictive drug thai has been used experi- mentally to wean addicts from heroin. Melhadone blocks the craving for hsroin, has less severe side- effects and is administered less frequently. Under the LcDain proposal, horoin addicts would be treated with mclhadonc until with- drawal had passed. Then they would be offered a choice between therapy aimed at a cure or permanent mainte- nance on methadonc as hospital oiil-pniicnis. The LeDain commission iden- tified use of amphetamines, known as as almost as difficult to cure as heroin addic- tion. It said the object should be prevention and also urged feder- ally-sponsored research to find an "antagonist" drug, working in the way metlmdone does with heroin, to block craving.
