Lougheed may raise pensions EDMONTON (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed says that if the Progressive Conservative government is re-elected in the March 26 provincial election it would consider raising the proposed minimum monthly pen- sion for senior citizens. The figure was included in the most recent provincial budget which died oh the order paper when the legislature was dissolved. Mr. Lougheed told an inter- viewer a re-elected Conser- vative government would be "taking a second look" at the figure when a new budget is brought down. Pay raise LONDON (Reuter) British workers increased their average earnings by a record 29.1 per cent last year, the government said yester- day. Wages are running well ahead of price increases. Retail prices rose in the same 12 months by 19.1 per cent. Here's how to make sure your parcel gets to its destination For Germans, proves a disappointment TORONTO way to ensure that your parcels go through the mail safely is to guard against "over- labelling" by covering a little bit of the recipient's name with stamps, says Ed Roworth, a post office spokesman. Mr. Roworth said Friday that post office employees who overlabel come to work armed with labels addressed to themselves or to friends and stick them on top of the address on a parcel. "We caught an 18-year-old employee doing he said. "She's been sending things to her family all over the world. We knew she was doing it but we couldn't catch her." Mr. Roworth advises: "When you put the postage on, put it over a little piece of the but be careful not to put it over the address. "Then someone cannot overlabel it without covering some of the stamps, unless he leaves some of the old address showing. Either way it makes the parcel noticeable." Mr. Roworth said claims for Tory scar tissue is still showing Cross-Canada Weather Canadian weather picture today: British Columbia Sunny with cloudy periods and mild.

Mr. Churchill, 75, who held three cabinet posts under for- mer prime minister John Die- fenbaker, still is a strong Die- fenbaker loyalist and it show- ed when he made a pointed suggestion about Dalton Camp and the party's selection of a new leader to replace the retiring Robert Stanfield. The Conservative caucus should invite Mr. Camp to ex- pound his views on the lead- ership, says Mr. Churchill. "Why have secret factions at Mr. Churchill fought tooth and nail against Mr. Camp's efforts to force that leadership convention when Mr. Diefenbaker was still par- ty leader in the mid-1960s. Although he was the man who recommended that Mr. Camp be appointed national director of the party in 1963, the affec- tion didn't last long. It has not revived either. Mr. Churchill has come from Winnipeg this time to spend two weeks helping Mr. Diefenbaker research his memoirs. "And I have had an op- portunity to talk with a good many members of caucus and as a result of this I feel Mr. Camp should be invited here." "This is the way I see said the politician who quit be- fore the 1968 general election. "I think caucus should recog- nize the fact that Dalton Camp occupies a commanding position in the party's inner circles and that he will exer- cise substantial control over who becomes the next leader. "At the moment, caucus members don't know when the leadership convention will be held, they don't know who will be in the running, some wonder whether Mr. Stanfield can be persuaded to run again, and in general things are in a state of confusion." "Why pretend Mr. Camp is without influence? I suggest that caucus should bring him here, find out when he feels a convention should be held, find out who he supports for the leadership and everything else that's on his mind." Mr. Churchill, an MP from 1951 until 1968, served as trade minister, veterans affairs minister and defence minister in the Diefenbaker government. He says it's non- sense for anyone to suggest that Mr. Camp is no longer influential within the party. Mr" Camp was president of the party when the "Dump Dief" movement reached a climax in 1966, forcing a lead- ership convention the follow- ing 'year. And he has been credited with masterminding the successful leadership campaign of Robert Stanfield, who succeeded Mr. Diefen- baker. The Camp profile is much lower now, Mr. Churchill says, but his influence with the party's executive is as strong as ever. "He's been in the back- ground, but he maintains a close association with Mr. Stanfield." And, in a reference to an in- cident in the last campaign, Mr. Churchill said there is no point in Mr. Camp going through the rear doors of hotels for secret meetings with the party leader when "he should walk right through the doors of Parliament and meet with the entire caucus.

The number lost or damag- ed in the 1974 period represents about one-quarter of one per cent of parcels handled in the region, or about 65 parcels a day. The post office paid compensation in the 1974.period, an increase of about over 1973. But Mr. Roworth said he be- lieves the theft rate has de- creased sharply during the last two years, partly because of tighter security. The value of claims paid is up, he said, because of a two- year-old program of insuring all parcels up to at no cost to the sender, a program that has not been heavily publicized. Mr. Roworth's comments followed news stories in which a former post office employee said about parcels a day are stolen at the city's main terminal. By CRAIG R. WHITNEY New York Timcs Service BONN There is a feeling of disappointment in West Germany and East Germany with the five-year policy of achieving better relations between them. The vision, a distant one, of peacefully dismantling the Berlin Wall was in the back of West Germans' minds when the chancellor, then Willy Brandt, won popular backing for "Ostpolitik" as a means of coming to terms with the separate existence of Communist-controlled East Germany. Whether the Brandt govern- ment had such illusions or not is a matter of debate and recrimination here. A neutral diplomat observed that no change of policy could be made in a democracy without tacitly encouraging the im- pression that it was easier to bring about than it would be in fact. And the process of relax- ing tensions between the two German states has proved to be a slow, arduous task, though, indeed, progress has been made. The trouble is that some of the changes are not such as to inspire widespread excitement or a feeling of ad- vance. A visitor to East Germany gets a sense of unrealized ex- pectations, of nervousness that the grand design of detente could .easily become obscured by tactical dis- agreements or wrecked by wrangling. Two years ago state depart- ment officials in Washington told a reporter to watch out for a German civil-aviation agreement that would allow people to fly from Dresden to Frankfurt, say, or from Cologne to East Berlin. No such agreement seems to be in sight. The present chancellor, Helmut Schmidt, inherited the Brandt policies when they had been largely completed. No initiatives or changes in course have been undertaken since he succeeded Brandt last May. In the election campaign in West Berlin this month the Social Democratic party, which he heads, is doing its best to remind the voters that they could not even think of the eastward journey until the Brandt policy made it possible. But there are doubts, which the party's represen- tatives share, whether the party will succeed in the vote March 2. An American diplomat who has been here a long time said: "In the German context Ostpolitik has always meant, in the back of the minds of West German voters, the chance to do something for the brethren 'over there.'
