IIP said. The United States meat industry i "It is well known that more eventually will be policed by an automated sensing device, con- sumer crusader Ralph predicts. Nadnr Nader told the Western States Meat Packers Association Sun- day that the device would be capable of determing from body odor whether a steer, pig or chicken is fit to eat. He suggested the industry should concentrate attention on producing animals free of unac- ceptable levels of chemical resi- due, antibiotics, hormone, or bacteria. Nader said he believes the de- velopment of an effective in- specting machine is just a mat- ter of time. He said U.S. department of agriculture inspectors now are concentrating on sampling for heavy metals, since the 1970 ex- p o s u r e of mercury-poisoning danger. This effort, however, is reduc- ing surveillance for residues from antibiotics and hormones, because the budget won't antibiotics are used in.the meat and poultry industry than in Nader declared. Human consumers who are allergic to penicillian-type drugs could suffer reactions from eat- ing roasts or steaks primed with antibiotics. He said Britain requires live- stock growers to obtain pre- scriptions for specific illness be- fore antibiotics can be adminis- tered to animals.

Train, chairman of, the president's council on envi-j ronmental quality, said here we go ahead with the pipeline, I think we must be sat- isfied that the pipeline repre- i sents the best alternative avail- i able to us, and 1 think at this point we are not satisfied com- pletely on that score and will I have to know a little bit more 1 about it." Hearings begin in Washington i Tuesday and continue next week in Alaska to discuss a draft statement prepared by the U.S. interior department last month. The department's draft con- j tended that Alaskan oil is so j vital to the U.S. that the pro- posed pipline should be built rom the North Slope to the southern Alaska port of Valdez, even though this causes some damage to the environment. The pipeline has been vigo- rously opposed by conservation groups which contend it will in- erfere with animal migration, upset the balance of nature and :hreaten the ecology through oil damage should the pipeline break. Train, a guest on NBC-TV's Meet the Press, said alternative routes for the pipeline and alter- native oil-carrying cluding submarine being examined. "There are obviously some areas in which we still need some better answers than have been presented so Train said, "and I at this point don't know whether we are going to get them or not" AA members honor memory of co-founder Bill W.

Rapeseed growers barred OTTAWA of rapeseed growers have been barred from selling the grain because they unknowingly ex- ceeded their quotas in selling to elevator operators, the Com- mons was told Monday. Eldon Woolliams (PC-Cal- gary North) said hundreds of producers had had their permit books seized after they broke quotas imposed without their knowledge. He demanded to know when the government had imposed the quotas "by silent, quiet or- der-in-council." Otto Lang, minister responsi- ble for the Canadian wheat board, said there had been "no sudden or recent change" hi rapeseed quotas. There had been a quota sys tern for producers for "severa years." and quotas on crushing mills set up "this year." Mr. Woolliams asked why thousand of farmers had been allowed to sign contracts with buyers that exceeded their quo- tas. Mr. Lang replied that con tracts were often provincial res- ponsibilities and were difficult to police before they are writ- ten. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS They met in Boston and in Bombay, India, in Cincinnati and in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and in Toronto. In cities around the world Sunday they gathered to remember the man they called Bill W., the co-founder of Alco- holics Anonymous.

Private funeral sei-vices were held at his hometown of Bedford Hills, N.Y. But his colleagues later decided on the memorial services. So it was that in Boston Sun- day an AA member recalled Bill as "a man who lived his life in order to give others the op- portunity to start a new one." In Bombay, AA members] read passages from Wilson's four books, Alcoholics Anony- mous, Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, AA Comes of Age, and The AA Way of Life. Speakers in Sao Paulo told how the AA program Wilson founded with Dr. Robert H. Smith, an Akron, Ohio, surgeon, in :935, helped them stop drink- ing. Dr. Smith died in 1950. In Toronto, Rev. E. S.

EDMONTON (CP) Plans vere unveiled today for a nillion shopping and office de- 'elopment featuring a five- storey department store and hreo 28 storey office towers encompassing two downtown city blocks. The announcement was made by C. N. W. Woodward, chair- man of Woodward Stores Ltd., Richard M. Thomson, chief 'eneral manager of. Toronto Dominion Bank, and G. Donald Love, president of Oxlea Invest- ments Ltd. The new Woodward's store and the office towers, one of which will be called the Toron- to Dominion Bank building, are to go up in the area between 100th and 101st Streets and 102nd and 102A Avenues, in- cluding the present Woodward's and old court house sites.

Prisoners, who now earn an average of three cents a day, are expected to get incentive pay that could raise their daily wage lo as much as 75 cents. Mr. Lee said the prisoners re- ceive the three cents a day so "they won't be destitute when they leave prison." They are not required to earn it. Mr. Lee said there is money i in the government's 1971-72 bud- get for such a plan snd offi- eials now are working on de- tails of application. In the federal corrections I system, prisoners have four (grades of incentives allowance permitting them to earn from 35 to 65 cents a day, depending on progress and behavior. A similar proposed incentive plan for Alberta will need ap- proval from the legislature. A more adequate system of prison pay was recommended in a provincial report on cor- rection systems in 1968.
