The 58 processing-plant em- loyees, who do not belong to a ertified union, came up with le plan as a means to improve leir quality of living.

Mr. Allen said he ha.' "heard no complaints" from others who are not included in the new arrangement, including maintenance employees, office staff and management. The work, which involve keeping the refinery operating suffers neither from lack of con tinuity nor from human fatigu in the new system, he said. For the employees, advar tages of the new system far out weigh the three-per-cent salar reduction they accepted for it.

Commenting on Powell's lat- est speech Monday on the Brit- ish race situation. Carter said; "I suppose we must all learn to live with Mr. Powell's blood- curdling hysteria." "There is something night- m a r i s h about Mr. Powell's ate of mind." In his speech to young Con- .ervatives, Powell used his rongest language since his rivers-of-blood" waining three ears ago. c The situation produced by on-white immigration is "the xplosive which will blow us Powell said. FUSE BURNING' "The fuse is burning, but the use is shorter than had been upposed."

ENOCH POWELL Under attack An Israeli rabbinical court has granted the widow of Philip Blaiberg permission to re- marry. Eileen Blaiberg presented the court the requested officia proof that her first husband, the South African heart-transplant patient, is dead, and therefore she is legally able to marry under Jewish law. But Mrs. Blaiberg would no give the court the date an< place of her wedding to Herber Blum, a 61-year-old Israeli gov eminent official, bee a u s e she feared too much publicity. It was understood she an< Blum would marry later thi month. Philio Blaiberg, Dr. Chris aan N.

David Francis is a tall, lean, Roman Catholic priest who prays that before his mis- sion is done he will have con- tributed to the overthrow of the government of the United States. The ascetic looking Jesuit ad- mits to being an agent and part of a conspiracy: an agent of Christ and a member of a rap- idly growing "conspiracy of conscience." Father Francis that's not his real name-already has con- verted his conscience to action. Sources say he, three other' Roman Catholic priests, two i nuns and five young men and j women made up the original I i East Coasi Conspiracy to Save j Lives. I i One source said the same; group followed another "moral i imperative" o f Christianity: when they raided selective serv-1 j ice offices in Philadelphia and i headquarters of the General Electric Co. in Washington. They have not been charged i in connection with those acts. They were careful, it was said, i not to leave clues. After a dozen or so years as a Jesuit scholar and teacher, Fat'ier Francis said in an inter- view, he came to the realization that it is as important to live the gospel as it is to preach it. "Any system that preaches and crusades against the poor and punctuates it with napalm doesn't deserve he said. "It must be overthrown." A good start in overthrowing the government, he said, is to' I reinstate the Constitution as the supreme civil law of the land. "The way I see the overthrow as being accomplishedis through the building up of a mass movement of people who take control of their own lives and own communities and through that process take con-: trol of their own government. In another interview. Sister her real name- said she conspired several weeks ago to destroy draft files. Tlte 31-year-old nun did not accompany her co-conspirators when they raided the selective service offices in an East Coast city. But she said she realized she is likely to spend as much time in prison as the others, if charged, tried an d convicted of an offence. "But it really Isn't a crime. It's an act of conscience. It's a good thing in my head. Another nun was asked to tci! of the emotional impact of the first criminal act of her lift'. "Wow! Even as I say it 1 feel inside what I felt then. There was this tremendous feeling in tearing up those draft files." President Roosevelt in IMS lought of recommending a j empo-ary United States Bri- 4sh occupation of France, ap- arently to keep the country rom faffing into the hands of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, whom e regarded as "intolerable." This was revealed in Wash- ngton in c volume of wartime documents released for the first time by the state department. As events turned out, the U S. and the Allies recognized de Jaulle's provisional exile gov- ernment when France was lib- erated. The letters and other docu- ments also show that Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower and State Secretary Cordell Hull both suggested that the Ital- ians be offered some hope of peace with honor after the war. The Roosevelt-de Gaulle dis- agreements came to light in letters between the U.S. presi- dent and Prime Minister Win- ston Churchill of Britain. A draft of a memorandum written May 8, 1943, Roosevelt said: "I do not know what to do with de Gaulle. Possibly you would like to make him gover nor of Madagascar. Puffed wheat house next TORONTO (CP) Three professors at the University of Toronto have developed a process to manufacture a cheap, lightweight, fire-proof and water-resistant building United Church key figure dies at 93 TORONTO (CP) Rev. Ron- ald MacLeod, 93, a key figure in the formation of the United Church of Canada in 1925, died here after a long illness. In the early years of radio, Mr. MacLeod was the first min- ister in Canada to broadcast church services and sermons. He was minister of Northern Congregational Church in To- ronto when he led it into a union with Presbyterian and Method- ist churches that resulted in the formation of the United Church of Canada. material out of puffed wheat. Under the process, wheat kernels are puffed to slightly smaller than breakfast-ceresl size, then burned to pure car- bon to obtain a product which its developers say can be used as insulation in building blocks and panels, wallboards and for highway, pipeline and building foundations. Victor Riley, one of the en- gineers who developed the process, said in an interview this week that many uses are foreseen for the product "but where we're really excited is in terms of lightweight, low- cost houses." Mr. Riley, 30. Eli Robinsky, 45, and John Timusk, 36, dis- covered the qualities of car- bonized puffed wheat in ex- periments done in their homes. Mr. Riley estimated it would cost about eight cents a cubic foot to produce, com- pared with 28 cents for polys- tyrene synthetic in- sulator. HURLBURT AUCTION SERVICE ITD.
