Chrysler said it is recalling late 1972 and some 1973 model cars produced through December with six-cylinder engines for inspection, and possible cor rection, of a fuel leakage prob lem in the fuel pump. Models involved include the Plymouth Valiant, Satellite and Fury and Dodge Dart, Coronet, Charger and Poara. Chrysler said the leak may come either from metal fatigue and cracking at the fuel pump outlet, or at the seal of the fuel pump filter. No accidents or injuries were reported as a result of the problems, Chrysler said. General Motors said the recalled trucks may have been assembled with an improperly routed brake line, which could lead to a loss of brakes. GM said the clutch mecha nism could make contact with the brake line as it is dis engaged, eventually wearing through the brake line and cause a loss of braking fluid and braking control. Only models equipped with the 350-cubic-inch V8 engine, manual transmission and hydraulic brakes are involved in the campaign. GM also said no accidents or Injuries had been reported as a result of the braking system. By DONAL HENAHAN New York Times Service NEW YORK - Caruso. It is a name that still brings a flush cf excitement to those who heard the voice, more than half a century after his desMi at the age of 48. Beloved by millions who never heard the voice except on recordings, it is a name that ailso brings a flash of recognition from many who have not even heard the recordings. like Babe Ruth, Chaplin or Nijinsky, it is a name that lives and grows in popular mythology. But there was a man and artist insa#> the myth of Enrico Caruso and that reality as well as the legend will be celebrated this week. 100TH ANNIVERSARY Yesterday, a display of the heapolitan tenor's costumes, letters, portraits and other memorabilia opens in the parterre level of the Metropolitan Opera House. And the Metropolitan will commemorate the 100th anniversary of Caruso's birth at Saturday's matinee performance of "Aida" (the actual birthdate is the next day, but the Met does not perform on Sundays). Mrs. Gloria Caruso, the tenor's daughter, has been invited as guest of honor. Many persons are still around who can describe the living sound of Caruso's voice. Some were present in the old Metropolitan Opera House on Dec. 8, 1920, when Ms voice cracked in "Pagliacci" during his famous aria, "Vesti la Glubba." Some were in the Brooklyn Academy of Music three days later when he began coughing blood during "L'elsir D'amore." And some were in the same house on Christmas Eve for Caruso's final performance as Eleazar in "La Juive." (He died of pleurisy in Naples on Aug. 2, 1921). THE GREATEST? Though ho left an estate valued at more than $9 million, as well as an artistic legacy that no other singer has matched, he was not a 1 w a y s "the great Caruso," portrayed by Mario Lanza in the movie by that name. A peasant by birth, he never studied music formally, could puzzle out his part of a score only with difficulty and, legend to the contrary, had to struggle intermittently with vocal problems. Even today, 52 years later the living voice was last heard in the world, Caruso fan mail at the Metropolitan Opera House is "bigger than for all the rest of singers combined," according to Francis Robinson, the Met's assistant manager and a Caruso authority. Was it "the greatest tenor voice of all time," as Caruso adherents have insisted? No one will ever know. Not only are the records constricted in their ability to show his voice in its full silken power and resonant weight, but no fair-minded listener can judge him against famous tenors of the pre-record-ing eras: Mario," Rubini, Don-zelli, Camipanini. By no standard was Caruso a complete singer. He rarely ventured into the classic German operas (Mozart, Beethoven, Wagner), and although he sang more than 40 roles in the Italian and French repertory, they were heavily concentrated in the 19th century. But, such limitations soberly weighed, the Caruso legend has proven difficult to tarnish. Ministers discuss education needs OTTAWA (CP) - ProvincialCanada, said Mr. McNie. The U.S. takes aim at film obscenity Rock bottom air fare announced LONDON (CP)-A British air operator has announced a rock-bottom, off-peak return fare of $108. on flights between London and Toronto starting April 2. - Laker Airways says it will operate three flights a week between the two cities with fares rising from the off-peak low of $.;08 to $180 return during the peak holiday season. Cut-price fares between Britain and Canada were recently negotiated between the two governments. Laker says its fares will be on bookings made at least 97 days before the flight date for a minimum stay of 14 days. "We are negotiating with a tour operator in Toronto to establish the Toronto-to-London side of the service," a spokesman added, emphasizing the company's intention that the low fares should be available both in Britain and Canada. While other British operators aire expected to arrange low fares as a result cf the Anglo-Canadian negotiations, Laker, a relatively small company, is the first to announce its cut-price offer. A spokesman for Air Canada in London said a schedule of cut-price air fares is "in the process of being arranged" but he doubted that it would be ready by April 2. WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States government is making a broad national attack on what it says are obscene movies shown in commercial movie theatres. Some of the films are reviewed by general-circulation newspapers and shown in neigh-borhiod theatres. But in the view of justice department* officials, the movies are outside the Supreme Court's obscenity guidelines-that is having no redeeming social or artistic value. Now, however, federal grand juries in Memphis and Washington have indicted dozens of persons in the lucrative business of producing, distributing and showing the allegedly obscene films. More indictments are expected, justice department officials say. Federal officials are going after advertised films in established movie houses. The productions include explicit scenes of various sexual acts with close-ups of male and female genitals. FOUR MOVIES CITED Among the movies they cite are Deep Throat, Little Sisters, Schoolgirl and Teen-age Fantasies. Last Nov. 16, the Memphis grand jury indicted three film distributing companies and four men for allegedly shipping pornographic films across state lines. On Thursday, the same grand jury indicted Sherpix Inc. of New York, the largest adult film distributor. In all 15 persons and 10 companies were named in the indictment for allegedly distributing Schoolgirl to a number of cities in half a dozen states. Sherpix is also the distributor of Deep Throat, the most popular among the new films. Friday, two film distributors and a Washington theatre operator were indited for shipping across* state lines or showing Teen-age Fantasies and Little Sisters. The indictment said the films were "obscene, lewd, las civious and filthy." Pattern Millionaire milkman Two charged wonH retire in death EDMONTON (CP) - A 22-year-old Winnipeg man and a 19-year-old Edmonton girl were charged here with murder in the murder of stock speculator Robert Edward Connolly whose body was found strangled and with a broken jaw, wounds and burn marks. The accused are Stewart William Thompson, who had been living in the provincial men's hostel in Edmonton, and Diane Voss, a resident of the women's shelter. Mr. Connolly, 52, a salesman and stock speculator, was killed last month in his high-rise apartment. Police said an autopsy revealed he had been tortured before being killed. Police said the motive for the | murder was robbery. BOSTON (AP) - Robert J. Taylor, a milkman who became a millionaire overnight, didn't make his run through East Cambridge today. But the 40-yearrold Winchester resident, who won the Massachusetts lottery's Milion Dollar Game Tuesday might, said he didn't plan to retire because "I have to keep doing something." "It's just unreal," said Taylor, the father of two girls, four and six years old, and "a boy on the way." He said he would use the winnigs to build a house on land he owns on Cape Cod. He will get the money at the rate of $50,000 annually for 20 years. SIZES 8-18 It's an "Inches Slimmer Style with narrowing princess lines topped by a roller-coaster curved yoke.

Kenney of Taber, Brownie Rolfson of Lethbridge and Al- education ministers met with four federal ministers Tuesday to discuss issues on secondary education programs that involve them all. "The future of post-secondary education rests on the outcomes of some of these proposals," Francois Cloutier, Quebec's education minister, said following the closed one-day meeting. The major topics discussed were manpower training grants from Ottawa, changes in current 50-50 cost-sharing arrangements for education of foreign students, proposals affecting student loan programs-which will come up for re-negotiation in 1974-and allocation of research money to universities. "We thought it was important for the ministers to get together and talk about these things and not just the officials," said Jack McNie, Ontario's minister of colleges and education. FIRST TIME The council of the ministers of education has been meeting since 1967, but this was the first time the four federal ministers from the departments most closely involved with education-Hugh Faulkner, secretary of state and host for the meeting, Robert Andras, minister of manpower and immigration, Don Jamieson, minister ,of regional economic expansion, and Jeanne Sauve, science minister were included. The provincial ministers apparently made full use of their opportunities to talk over some of the problems arising with manpower training grants with Mr. Andras. Mr. Faulkner said in an interview the meeting had covered a number of areas that "touched both levels of government." It's a question of trying to co-ordinate manpower programs," he said. For example, there is "a relationship between the course being offered and job opportunities in the area." The provinces were "gener-ly agreed" .on asking the fe-eral government to look at education cost-sharing arrangements for foreign students in Shooting sparks rumpus federal government now shares 50-10 in costs for these students in universities and colleges but most provinces feel Ottawa should be paying 100 per cent. Many of these students come to Canada for graduate programs, which are among the most costly programs to run, then return to their home countries, said Mr. McNie. A definition of foreign stu-dents is needed to determine which students should be paid for, said Jim Foster, Alberta's minister of post-secondary education. It depends on whether you talk about landed immigrants or those on student visas. Probably about 1,400 to 1,500 students come to Canada in student visas and most provinces want these students ex* penses to be paid from federal coffers. The question of student loans will come up for re-negotiation in 1974 and provincial ministers were making points of view known to Ottawa. The loans have considerable effects on other matters, said Mr. Cloutier. They have a bearing on the patterns of numbers of students in any area. "Essentially in all programs we took the position there should be more consultation with the provinces in these areas," said Mr. McNie. LONDON (Reuter) - A major controversy loomed today after police shot to death two Pakistani teen-agers who raided the Indian high commission building brandishing toy weapons. The two dead youths and a 15-year-old boy with them were apparently trying to hold high commission staff hostage in a protest action against India's detention of Pakistani prisoners of war. But they were killed when one of their hostages dived through a window and notified police. Pilot unhurt in crash of 'copter CALGARY (CP) - A two-passenger helicopter was destroyed when it crashed and burned on landing at the Calgary international airport. The pilot, Roger Sexty of Okotoks was the only occupant and he escaped uninjured. The aircraft apparently touched another helicopter on the ground then hit a hangar. The helicopter was a write, off and damage to the hangar was minimal. PRIME MOVER Almost two-thirds of Canada's foreign trade moves through the St. Lawrence system. Police marksmen from a special embassy patrol squad rushed into the building, firing 11 shots. A police spokesman said neither of the youths, who wore stocking masks and carried knives, a sword and acid spray and the imitation weapons, responded to police orders to throw down their arms. Scotland Yard chiefs have ordered an inquiry into the shooting which has revived the controversy over whether Britain's unarmed police should carry weapons. INCIDENT WAS SECOND It was the second incident in recent months in which police have shot and killed raiders. Last December, a policeman on his way to guard duty at an embassy killed a bank robber. Home Secretary Robert Carr backed the police action in a speech Tuesday in the House of Commons. "Even if the guns were not real, the acid spray was real, the daggers were real and the sword was real," he said. "These were all used, and injured people." The raid happened just as high commission staff were arriving for work Tuesday morning. The three youths rushed into the building and screamed at staff: "We are not here for the money ... we are here for the cause, you Indian bastards." They demanded keys to the 'building, but before they could barricade themselves in, one of their hostages made his escape through the window. ; An organization named Black December said in a telephone call to the London Times Tuesday night that it was behind the incident. It said its object was to rally world opinion for the release of 90,000 Pakistanis held in India. 1 But a Moslem community leader from the North London suburb of Watford said he knew the men who conducted the raid and he did not think they belonged to any organization. Newspapers today criticized the importation-mainly from Japan-of toy guns which could easily be mistaken for the real thing. Promoter dies at Edmon'ton EDMONTON (CP) - Funeral services will be held Friday for promoter Benny Benjamin, 62, who died here Monday. He entered the entertainment business in the late 1950s, with country and western shows. Later he changed his programming to attract the Everly Brothers and Fabian, idols of the teen-age set, and ultimately began bringing in rock concerts. He claimed to hate rock and never listened to a concert. Pattern WHY SHOULD WOMEN GET STUCK WITH THE CLUMSIEST CARS? Keep a little girl busy dressing her 11%" teen doll. Save a small fortune!

THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Readers Mail Limited 60 Front Street West Toronto 1, Ontario It's true you need space for the kids and the dogs and the groceries. But that doesn't mean you have to lug a giant station wagon around. With the rear seat down, the Volvo wagon has space in back for 67 cubic feet of kids, dogs and groceries. Or a 6-foot sofa. And space in front for a 6/^-foot husband. But outside, the Volvo wagon is exactly the same size as the Volvo sedan. (That's about 3 feet less to park than the giants. And three feet less to dent.) A sense of proportion is one of many sensible things about Volvo. Others include 4-wheel disc brakes. A rear-window wiper, washer and defroster. And rear doors with extra locks the kids can't open from inside, so you can keep your mind on the road instead of the back seat. If all wagons were designed as sensibly as a Volvo, maybe women drivers would have a Roof rack optional. er name. 1*71 VOLVO CANAO* LTD.- OVI�tt*i rruvtMY AV�ll�tLl.
