Lalonde spending leader OTTAWA (CP) Health Minister Marc Lalonde paid for 13 speeches, including for his contribution to the World Football League (WFL) debate, the Commons learned Monday. Written replies to a Com- mons question show that only four cabinet ministers hired speech writers on a freelance or contract basis in the 12- month period ended March 31, 1974. They paid a total of 625 for speeches. The spending leader, by a wide margin, for both total amount and the highest in- dividual price for a speech was Mr. Lalonde. He paid for a 45- minute speech delivered in the Commons April 18, 1974, during second reading of his bill to keep the WFL from es- tablishing a team in Toronto. The remaining he spent on 12 speeches to a wide variety of sports and health groups. These speeches cost between and Environment Minister Jeanne SauVe reported that she kept two -writers on contract during the 12-month period, paying them each for writing four speeches' each. Mrs. Sauve, minister of science and technology at the time, said one writer received an additional and the other for other writing work within the department. Stanley Haidasz, secretary of state until he was dropped from the cabinet last August, reported he paid for three 20-minute speeches. Consumer Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet reported paying for three speeches during the year, when he was post- master-general. The remaining 26 members of the cabinet reported they had not hired any free-lance speech writers during the period in question. Of the four ministers who were in the market for part- time speech writers, Mr. La- londe paid the highest prices, averaging for each of his 13 speeches. Mr. Haidasz was next, paying an average followed by Mrs. Sauve with a speech. Consumer Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet paid only for each of his three speeches. MacEachen not setting things afire OTTAWA (CP) External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen will visit Africa during the last two weeks of April, his first foreign tour since he took over the port- folio last summer. The minister is expected to visit up to five countries. De- tails are expected in a Toronto speech later this week to the Canadian Association of African Studies. The tour is seen as one in- dication that Mr. MacEachen may at last be becoming more visible. If that is the case, it will be a relief to those members of his department who have been concerned about the low profile he has maintained. The former president of the Privy Council hasn't rocked any boats since he took over the external affairs portfolio held for six years by Mitchell Sharp. Mr. MacEachen has made foreign trips since his appoint- ment. He went to Venezuela for the law of the sea conference, to Rome for the world food conference, to Washington' with Prime Minister Trudeau and to the United Nations. But, despite that, he does not appear to have left a sustained impact on the public. Between such ex- posures he has been shy of the media. Mr. MacEachen is said to believe that he should not be the spokesman for his department, that he has a press office for that.

Indians vacate Ottawa building OTTAWA (CP) A small band of native people who have been occupying an aban- doned government building along the Ottawa River for the last five months announced an end to the occupation Monday night.

He said the'people will get together within the next two weeks to find other offices. Electricity and heat were Venus looks close to Jupiter LOS ANGELES (AP) A spectacular double star effect created by what appears to be a meeting between the planets Venus and Jupiter was visible in the western sky after sun- down Monday. Scientists at Griffith Observatory said the show should be impressive for the next few days. The planetary conjunction occurs about once a year when the planets are aligned so that they appear to be less than one finger's width apart. But Venus is a near neighbor of earth and Jupiter is far out in the solar system. The actual distance between them is some 404 million miles. Scientists say the Venus- Jupiter conjunction is es- pecially vivid this year because it occurs in a good position in the sky to be seen from earth. The effect should be visible for about two hours after sun- set.

QUAKE SHAKES BANJA LUKA (Renter) A strong earthquake shook this central Yugoslav town Monday but no casualties or damage were reported, authorities said. Banja Luka was lu't by a severe quake in September, 1969, which killed 16 and left thousands homeless. EDMONTON (CP) Dr. J. Douglas Muir, professor of labor relations at the Univer- sity of Alberta, has been nam- ed mediator in the wage dis- pute between the Alberta Hospital Association and the Canadian Union of Public Employees. Labor Minister Bert Hohol announced the appointment after both sides agreed to a third party neutral mediator who would attempt to settle the dispute before the current wage contract ends March 31.
