LONDON (CP - Controversy erupted today over the Conservative government's new bill for tougher controls over immigration. The measure drew strong criticism from minority and political opposition groups. Among the sharpest attacks was that of Vancouver-born Joan Lestor, Labor MP and a member of the party's national executive. She called it "a nasty, mean, horrid little bill which makes no contribution to race relations." A major criticism of the bill is that it would Up the balance of immigration in favor of whites and against blacks. The Guardian ran a frontpage cartoon showing Prime Minister Heath holding up a box of soap powder decorated with the face of Home Secretary Reginald Maudling, sponsor of the bill. The caption: "Reggie Washes Whiter." Maudling said Wednesday in bringing the bill in for second reading in the Commons that it is aimed at halting "further large-scale immigration" in line with the Tory manifesto for the general election of last June 18. NEED WORK PERMITS It would subject new immigrants-with some exceptions- to getting a work permit for one year in advance of arrival, and they also would have to report to the police on arrival and advise the police of changes of address. The immigrant would have to stay in the same job for a year, unless he received official permission to change. A new category of immigrants known as "patrials" would be created, who would be free from these restriction!?. They would consist of persons whose parents' or grandparents were born here-an obvious advantage to prospective entrants in such white countries as Canada. David Steel, chief Liberal whip in the Commons, described the measure as "blatantly racialist." "Ifjs flagrant concession to Powellism," he added, "is a further insult to the Commonwealth and an attack on human rights." He was referring to Conservative MP Enoch Powell, who has persistently expressed alarm at the growing number of black immigrants in Britain. $250 reward for capsule WHITECOURT (CP) - A 1250 reward has been offered for informaiton leading to the recovery of a missing radioactive capsule and its container, stolen last Sunday. Century Geophysical Corp. of Canada, owners of the 50-pound container and its pill  aimed deadly capsule, announced the reward today. RCMP said today they have no definite leads in their search. The capsule of iridium 197, a radioactive substance used for industrial x-rays of pipelines, was stolen from a parked truck in a hotel parking lot. The dull-silver container, a camera-type 10-by-12 inch box used for directing the radioactive rays, is labelled "danger radioactive material." It was the only thing taken from the truck. The container, which is locked, is valued at about $3,000 and the iridium at $500, but the company spokesman said they have no commercial value and cannot be used, even by a rival company.

The takeover was announced by President Houari Boume-dienne when he addressed about 3,000 labor union officials. Algerian leaders also announced nationalization of all French interests in natural gas concessions, as well as in oil and gas pipelines. All nationalized assets are being transferred to the Algerian state-owned oil and gas concern Sonatrach, which now controls about two-thirds of the Algerian oil output, estimated at nearly 48 million tons last year. Companies will receive compensation. The Algerian move was not totally unexpected, coming after repeated Algerian accusations of French prevarication in negotiations which were suspended three weeks ago at France's request. The negotiations involved revising an oil agreement signed in July, 1965. Announcing that Algeria was raising its share in all French oil companies to 51 per cent, Boumedienne stressed that his country was ready to maintain links of co-operation with France and that Foreign Minister Abdelaziz Bouteflika would negotiate the terms of compensation and other outstanding issues.

A young peoples group was organized in 1970. The leader is Keith Jorgenson. Its main objective is Bible study and dis tion carried out by various groups since Jan. 25. He told the Quebec national assembly he has taken the necessary steps in conjunction with the labor department to apply sanctions provided for in the Labor Code against the rebellious teachers. Under the Quebec Labor Code, the union could be fined $100 to $1,000 a day for the walkouts. Individual members could be fined $25 to $100 a day. "No halt in the action is currently foreseen," a spokesman for the alliance said following M r. L'Allier's announcement that the teachers will be fined for any new walkout. The negotiations in Quebec City began Thursday after the Quebec Teachers Corporation, which groups 67,000 members of most teacher unions in the province, agreed to suspend rotating strikes begun Jan. 25. MANY WITHOUT CLASSES The talks went on despite the walkout in Montreal of about 1,650 members of the 9,500-member Alliance des Professeurs. Some 35,000 French-speaking students in 24 schools were left without classes. Basis of the dispute is reclassification by the government of the qualifications of certain teachers in Quebec province. Although some have been placed in a higher classification, others have been graded lower and face salary freezes until they can improve their qualifications. Some teachers have been asked to pay back some of their salaries. Teacher salaries in Quebec range from $4,500 to 814,500 a year, depending on qualifications and experience.
