Body returned to tomb ILE D'YEU, France (AP) -The coffin of Marshal Philippe Petain, the First World War hero turned Nazi collaborator, was lowered into its bleak tomb again today after a grave-snatching episode that could have an effect on next month's French legislative elections. Stolen Sunday from this windswept island off the coast of Brittany, the coffin was found Wednesday in a garage near Paris and flown here in a military aircraft. Then, behind a procession of veterans carrying the French tricolor, it was borne in a hearse to Hie tomb. Four killed in blast AUSTIN, Tex.

B.C. warned offer needed in oil pipeline scrapping VICTORIA (CP) - Liberal Leader David Anderson warn-de Premier Dave Barrett Thursday that if he wants the shipment of oil down British Columbia's coastline stopped he will have to be prepared to give up something in return. Referring to the premier's efforts to have direct talks with the U.S. government on the question of the Trans-Alaska pipeline, Ma-. Anderson said discussion about the pipeline and the consequent shipping of oil in tankers down the coast is beyond the stage of simply recording objections. Mr. Anderson said if the premier is going to Washington, Socreds By JEAN-GUV CARRIER OTTAWA (CP) - An attempt by Social Credit to topple the minority Liberal government was easily blocked Thursday Poison gas use studied by Churchill LONDON (CP) - Winston Churchill considered using germ warfare as well as poison gas in the Second World War but was advised against it by his chiefs of staff, says a British military historian. . Yorkshire-born Roger Parkinson, now completing a trilogy on the 1939-45 conflict, said in an interview that in 1942 and 1944 Churchill asked the chiefs of staff to study the feasibility of using mustard and phosgene gas. Such weapons had been outlawed by the Geneva protocol of 1925 and Britain's formal position was to use them only in retaliation. The first occasion when Churchill raised the subject was during the planning of Operation Ajax, designed to force the Germans out of Norway. The second was after the 1944 Allied landings in Normandy, when British military planners feared an entrenched stalemate similar to the First World War. Both times, the defence committee in London advised against it on military grounds. On the latter occasion they feared gas retaliation against Allied troops in Normandy, including Canadians, and possibly gas-laden rockets aimed at London. night by an alliance of all other parties in the Commons., A phalanx of 236 Liberal, Conservative and NDP members easily subdued the 13 Social Credit members in the House, crushing their sub-amendment to a government motion asking the Commons to accept the federal budget for 1973-74 presented Monday. Its passage would have altered a Conservative non-confidence amendment that comes to a vote Monday. The main motion will be voted on Wednesday. A defeat on the budget would topple the government, but the New Democratic Party, with the balance of power in the House, has indicated it will support the government. The Liberals have 109 seats, the Conservatives 107, NDP 31, Social Credit 15, and there are two independent members. On Thursday, second day of the six-day debate on the budget, the Conservatives loosed their fiercer critics. OUT OF TOUCH Financial critic James Gilles (Toronto Don Valley) described the shortcomings he sees in the budget and how the Conservatives would do it better. Liberal economic policies are "not in touch with what is happening in the world," he said. "This budget could have been written in 1952 or 1962 or 1972." The budget is intended to stimulate the economy by increased foreign trade, investment and inventory buildup, Mr. Gillies said. But the growth of trade blocs, tariffs and most importantly the devaluation of the U.S. dollar made it total folly to depend upon increased trade to reduce unemployment. D.C. he should be prepared to answer some very tough questions as to just what Canada and the province is willing to offer in return for having the Trans-Alaska pipeline scrapped. The premier will be asked such questions as whether or not he agrees with the proposal for a pipeline down the Mac-Kenzie Valley from Alaska through Canada to the U.S., he said. The premier will also be asked whether he would like to see such a pipeline 51 per cent Canadian owned or controlled as is the federal government's position. . Mi". Anderson said lie personally does not feel the federal government can require either Canadian ownership or a percentage of Canadian control over a pipeline that is essentially linking two U.S. points. CHIDED The Liberal leader also chadded Mir. Barrett for seemingly switching his viewpoint on the Trans-Alaska pipeline from apparent belief that it was inevitable to a feeling that it could be defeated. Mr. Barrett had said last year and in January during a visit to Washington state that -it was inevitable that there would be large tankers moving oil from Alaska to the U.S. down the B.C. coast. The premier seems to have changed this position now since he is seeking political representation in Washington to f'i*ht the pipeline, Mr. Anderson said. Former premier dies at 57 MONTREAL (CP) - The heart problems that troubled and shortened the political career of Jean-Jacques Bertrand caught up with the former Quebec premier Thursday despite major open-heart surgery to save his life. Mr. Bertrand, 57, Union Na-tionale premier from Sept. 26, 1968 until April, 1970, died Thursday after a two-hour operation earlier in the day and six-hours of surgery Wednesday. Mr. Bertrand will be buried Sunday in the Eastern Townships community of Cow-ansville.

The explosion occurred at the Cominco Ltd.'s fording coal mine site 40 miles north of here, near the Alberta-British Columbia border in southeastern B.C. Both the bulldozer and a front-end loader were destroyed in the blast. The line, operated by Columbia Natural Gas, was the main line to Cominco's coal mine. Mine operations have been suspended until the line is repaired. No estimate has been given on how long this will take. John Miller, 43, of Elkford is in satisfactory condition today in the Fernie Memorial Hospital suffering severe facial burns. The gas line had not been repaired by 10 a.m. today and the mine buildings were without heat. The explosion took place in an open area below the mine and didn't affect any buildings, MP to seek change in dress rule OTTAWA (CP) -He hasn't gone on the warpath over the issue, but Conservative MP Joe Clark (Rocky Mountain) is a little concerned that three Indian constituents of his were barred from the Commons visitors' gallery Thursday for wearing "improper dress." The three, Chief Jim Day-chief, Lawrence Mackinaw and Jerry Strawberry of the Mackinaw band in Alberta, had lunch with Mr. Clark in the parliamentary restaurant, then went down to the gallery to watch the action in the Commons. Mr. Clark left them at the door, went down to his seat, looked up and couldn't find them. He said he learned later that Commons security guards would not let them enter because they were wearing "the casual style clothes that are their tradition." Mr. Clark said in an interview he intends to protest the incident to the Speaker of the House and suggest changes in the Commons dress rule, wlrich "seems to constitute a clear kind of prejudice." Mr. Clark said all three men would have worn shirts and ties had they known it was the rule. Two of the men were wearing Indian-style bead ties and all had open-necked shirts. Mr. Clark pointed out that dignitaries from other countries visiting Parliament often wear dress consistant with customs in their homeland and do not always conform to Canadian sliirl-and-tie styles. j Sharp to attend world meet on Vietnam peace By JOHN HAY OTTAWA (CP) - External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp flies to Paris tonight for the international conference that is purported to guarantee the peace in Vietnam. But informed observers expect little more from the meeting than a rubber stamp on the Jan. 27 ceasefire agreement. Mr. Sharp said Thursday he seeks a single specific from the conference-establishment of "a continuing political authority" that would be responsible for the peace settlement. That authority, he said, is an absolute requirement for Canadian participation on the International Commission of Control and Supervision beyond the initial 60-day government commitment that ends next month. It is unlikely the conference, which starts Monday, will agree to Canada's first choice for that authority, the Security Council of the United Nations, Mr_ Sharp said. But he did not know whether it would accede to the second choice-UN Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim. COMMITTEE OKAY Officials have indicated Canada also would accept a continuing committee of the conference, to which the supervisory commission could report. Mr. Sharp said he would make no commitment at the conference to maintain Canadian involvement on the commission beyond the 60-day limit. "I should think that will not be decided until before mid-March." Officials said "it is pointless" for the supervisory commission to report ceasefire violations only to the parties to the true e-Saigan, Washington, Hanoi and the;- Viet Cong. They see the commission as a fire alarm, with authority needed at the other end to hear the warning bells. Meantime, the external affaire department announced dissolution of the 19-year-old International Control Commission in Vietnam-considered a model of how not to supervise a truce. Co-ed charged YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (AP) -A 22-year-old Southern University co-ed was charged Thursday with atternpting to murder a new-born bnby girl found jammed in a tdlet on a jetliner here. The infant was reported in "fine shape" at Warren General Hospital. FBI agents said the woman- who allegedly gave birth to the child aboard the United Airlines jet Monday and identified as Betty Jean Anderson of Garys-ville, La. was released on $5,000 bond.
