The news that Petain's coffin had been removed from its tomb on the He d'Yeu came as a shock to millions of Frenchmen. Police set up roadblocks on highways leading to the Verdun area of northern France, believing an attempt might be made by Petainists to re-enter the body on the Verdun battlefield, scene of Petain's First-World War triumph against the German army. Right wingers are widely thought to have been responsible for the theft of the marshal's body. But another theory circulating in France was that Second World War resistance fighters, afraid that Pompidou might have been preparing to permit a Verdun reburial for Petain, took the coffin and threw it into the sea. The issue of burying Petain at the Douamont cemetery in Ver dun alongside 300,000 French soldiers who died there in the bloody battles of 1916-1917 has been an issue with the French right for nearly 30 years.

Reaction to the budget tabled Monday by Finance Minister John Turner focussed on tariff cuts on fcod items, higher pensions, tax cuts and government plans he says are intended to take the inflationary bias out of the federal tax structure. Businessmen were elated that the government restated previous promises to pass legislation to reduce corporate taxes and provide investment incentives. Orland Tropea, Montreal, chairman of the executive committee of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce, said these measures require immediate approval of Parliament, because "uncertainty and consequent delay in business commitments" had resulted from lack of legislative action. Most negative reaction to the budget was in the form of complaints that it did not go far enough. "We're delighted with the tariff reductions, which are basically on foods," Keith Dixon, Toronto, general manager of the Canadian Importers Association, said. CMA PLEASED Daniel Sprague, Winnipeg, president of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association, said the tax reductions are welcome and the plan to relate personal income tax rates and exemptions to increases in the consumer price index "is a development of major significance with important implications for the future." Fernand Daoust, secretary general of the Quebec Federation of Labor, said the budget is a "small victory for the workers" who would "watch carefully" to see that sales tax cuts are passed on to consumers." Real L'Heureux, Ottawa chairman of the Canadian Construction Association, said he was disappointed that the sales tax on building materials was not repealed. Norman C. Rea, Toronto, president of the Confectionery Association of Canada, said the industry will move "as quickly as possible to pass on to the consumer extra values" as a result of the lifting of federal sales taxes on candies. This would mean price cuts in some areas, such as bulk candies, and bigger candy bars in vend--ing machines. Beatings at tribal dance cause of Indian s death CHILLIWACK, B.C. (CP) -A six-man jury, including three Indians, found Monday that a 32-year-old Sardis Indian died last Dec. 18 as a result of excessive beatings he received during a tribal dancing initiation ceremony. The jury had been told by Coroner T. W. Meagher evidence that Edwin Gabriel George had signed a consent for the ceremony had no bearing on the law. "No one consents to any injury to his body," the coroner said. "Such a consent is void." A 66-year-old local Indian chief told the jury Monday that he could remember no one who had suffered from tribal initiation rituals. Chief Richard Malloway told the six-man jury inquiring into the death of Edwin George, that the rituals which allow a person into a tribal dancing society sometimes change the Diary of Lieut. Col. G.

Mr. George began his initiation at the Tzeachten longhouse at Sardis, B.C., Dec. 10, and died Dec. 18. The victim's cousin, Peter George, was treated in hospital about the same time. Mr. Malloway said part of the ceremony includes carrying the participant around the longhouse at shoulder height four times while beating him with deer hooves. Four days after the Initiation starts, the person is bathed in hot water," "then we take him to the river and make him swim in the cold water." Mr. Malloway said that when he underwent the initiation as a young man it was "quite a strain." The person is not fed much during the ceremony and "you can't drink water even because ypu vomit it up." Ho said he knew Edwin George was complaining about feeling sick but "when they tel] mo they are sick I don't listen to them. I make them dance." Airliner crash lolls 66 persons PRAGUE (Reuter) - A total of 66 persons died when a Soviet airliner crashed here Mon day, a report from the Czech oslovak investigating committee said today. It said 34 persons - 25 pas sengers and nine crew members - survived. The crash occurred when the Tupolev-154 the Soviet Union's latest air liner, hit the ground 200 yards short of the main runway as it was landing on a flight from Moscow. The report by the Czechoslovak commission, headed by Transport Minister Stefan Sut. ka, said most of the survivors are in good condition and have alrendy been released from hospitals. The report said the dead consisted of four Soviet stewardesses, 37 Soviet passengers, 17 1 Czechoslovaks, five Cubans, � one Pole, one East German and : one Romanian. I The weather was favorable at j the lime of Ihe crash, the re-I port added. Joseph Whitmore, director of corporate relations lor Coca-Cola Ltd., Toronto, said the company will give "favorable consideration" to passing on to the consumer the cut in the sales tax on soft drinks. This might amount to about one cent a bottle, he said. Roy Atldnson, Saskatoon, president of the National Farmers Union, said the tariff cuts would provide more benefit to foreign suppliers than to Canadian farmers and consumers. Sniper was alone in shooting spree NEW ORLEANS (CP) - Police Supt. Clarence Giarrusso said Monday the evidence is "overwhelming" that Mark Essex was the lone sniper responsible for the shootings last month which resulted in eight deaths at the DownTown Howard Johnson Hotel here. A 10-page "status report" on the police investigation said: 'It has not been definitely determined if Essex did or did not have one or more accomplices or co-conspirators." However, Giarrusso made it clear in an hour-long news conference after the report was is- sued tVat police are doubtful Essex had help. Essex was killed atop the hotel by policemen firing from a helicopter, and police operated through the night on the assumption-referred to in the report as "a reasonable belief"- that there was more than one sniper. They continued to shoot at the building long after Essex was killed. When policemen reached the roof more than 24 hours after the shooting started Jan. 7, they found only Essex's body. A subsequent search of the hotel turned up no other suspects. Weather and road report SUNRISE WEDNESDAY 7:30 SUNSET 6:00 II L Pre Lethbridge ....... 40 26 .01 Pincher Creek .... 38 27 ..
