MONTREAL (CP) A high- fluking Montreal police officer aid Friday that recent changes ade by Police Chief Jacques aulnier increased the pos- Dility of bribery and corruo- on In the city's morality squad. The officer, Deputy-Director Guay, was testifying at a uebec Police Commission in- uiry called to investigate Mr. jaiunier's conduct while he was ead of the morality squad in he 1960s. However most of Mr. Guay's estimony dealt with Mr. Saul- Tier's conduct as chief of the Montreal police department. Saulnier was appointed chief in May, 1971. Mr. Guay said the director's ecision to consolidate four divi- lonal morality squads into one group had eliminated many of forces that made bribery difficult in the past. "The system we used to have and still is the best and only way to cut down on corrup- Mr. Guay said. The deputy-director said that under the old system "it was mpossible and unthinkable for IB owner of a drinking estab- shment or a bawdy house or a aming house to pay protec- ion." Mr. Guay said that in reality here were five morality squads under the old at leadquarters under the direct responsibility of the director and one In each of the four divi- sion headquarters. The divisional squads, under tie command of the assistant chief inspector in each district, vere not limited in their opera- tions and could make raids in any part of the city.

"I have just had a talk with Solicitor-General J e a n-Pierre Coyer and I believe he is con- vinced that the insignia means a great deal to the peo- ple of western Mr. Harries said in an interview. "I told him it was a silly, senseless move." The federal government has ordered all RCMP signs changed and seme of the new signs have appeared already. The move has raised ire in sev- eral areas of Alberta. VICTORIA (CP) Premier W. A. C. Bennett Friday moved to silence opposition members and critics within liis own party by introducing legisla- tion to provide a annual grant to tenants over 65. The Elderly Citizens Renters Act was introduced just before the B.C. Legislature ended its two week debate on the provin- cial budget. The government majority defeated the combined opposi- tion by e vote of 35-to-16 to adopt in principle the bil- lion budget and an additional S115 million in spending from special funds. The bill was greeted by crit- ics as a worthwhile step, hut one obviously designed to cor- rect an oversight in the budget brought Feb. 4.

India ready for talks Ali Bhutto told reporters h NEW DELHI (AP) The In-1 dated Feb. 14-the SBUW flat dian government announced that Pakistan President Zulfika today that it is prepared to have direct peace talks with Pakistan ''at any time, at any level and without any preconditions." Tlie declaration was contained in a letter sent to UN Secre- tary General Kurt Waldheim and released to the press here. It is the strongest public statement India has made about a possible peace conference be- tween the two countries, which fought a two-week war in De- cember that ended with the cre- ation of an independent, Inclian- suppfrrted Bangladesh In what was formerly East Pakistan. Coincidenlally, the letter planned lo meet Indian Prim Miiuster Indira Gandhi Bangladesh Prime M i n i s t e Sheik Mujlbur Rahman, Bhutto's statement did not specify he cuntcm plated a tripartite summit c separate talks with each leade. The Indian foreign ministry said at the lime that it had no yet received any such requcs for a summit meeting Iron Bhutto but it would give "du consideration" lo the suggestio when and if it is received.

PUBLIC MEETING ON OIL, GAS and COAL ROYALTIES Plan to attend Ihii important meeting on TUESDAY, FEB. 22 at 8 p.m. SVEN ERICKSEN'S RESTAURANT MAYOR MAGRATH DRIVE IOWER FIOOR EVERYONE WELCOMEI The other day, one regular customer shocked me. He's a guy in his lato 30s, follows the latest trends and really went for the long mod look and even went so far as to get dye jobs lo look younger. "He c a m e in the other day and said 'Doug, I'd like it cut the way you used lo cut 11 before this long-haired busi- ness came in.' Mr. Guay said It was Uie knowledge of the five autono- mous groups that made it next to impossible for offenders to pay for police protection- He said he opposed Mr. Saul- nier's decision on June 8, 1971, lo cut the number of divisional morality squad officers from 39 to la, liberating some men for duty at Man and His World, the annual fair. The four morality durisions were re-organized into two, and I3ien into one squad at the end of July, leaving one consoli- dated divisional group and the headquarters squad. LOST CONTACT "The new divisional the deputy-director said, "can't do the same job. And It has lost its liaison with assistant chief inspectors in each division." Mr. Guay also criticized Mr. Saulnier's reduction of the num- ber of large-scale raids carried out in Montreal drinkiDg estab- lishments. Before Mr. Saulnier became director raids carried out on an inter-departmental scale had often turned up violations rang- ing from under-age drinking to fraud, he said. Tlie witness said Mr. Saulnier "must have been aware of the results of the but, from the start, he discouraged them. In 1963 Mr. Guay was an as- sistant cluef inspector, a post which made him superior to Mr. Saulnier, who was an inspector at the time. Mr. Guay was made a dep- uty-director in 1970 and was one of the 13 superior officers over- looked when Mr. Saulnier was promoted from inspector to director.
