A second and larger demon- stration against slieged delays in processing unemployment in- surance claims has been prom- ised for next Friday, and a busi- I ncsa leader has suggested the i city be prepared to ask for 1 troops to maintain order. Although William Craig ol Saint John, N.E., a Canadian Congress of Lalxir representa- tive, savs high unemployment is the main factor behind a recent wave of protests in this nrea, Acadian students say an equally strong motive is ethnic sirrvival. "It's a question of the sur- vival of the Acadians in north- ern New said Rheal Boucher, student presi- dent at Bathurst College. Re- cent demonstrations against Un- employment insurance Commis- sion offices are just part of n larger problem, he said Friday. CLASH WITH POLICE Jobless workers and students i clashed with police Thursday when protesting marchers at- lempted to enter the offices of tbe UIC.

He said of SW4 inquiries about insurance since Feb. 14, the of- fice has answered 846 and the remainder will havo been cleared up by today. Organizers of the demonstra- tion claim to have documented another cases in which pay- ment of insurance benefits have been delayed. "They want lo hang 292 cases over my head but why don't they give them to us and let us work on Mr. DesRoehes complained. Percy Cormier, president of [he Bathurst Chamber of Com- merce, says the demonstrators have made their point so they now can go home. He said Fri- day the city should impose a ban on demonstrations for at least CiO days arid if demonstra- lors insist on marching, troftps should be brought in to main- tain law and order.

Unusual sights in Nixon By PETER GREGSON PEKING (Reuter) Presi- dent Nixon's visit to Peking this week, an unthinkable trip only a short while ago, brought with it unusual sights and strange contrasts. Nixon's departure today for Hangchow saw the unlikely combination of a United Elates president flying in a Russian-built alrlier belong- ing to tbe Chinese govern- ment. And among the Journalist! covering the president's de- parture was one from North Vietnam. To add to this unusual mix- ture the president'.5 own jet accompanied the Hyushin-18 turboprop on the night. The first Incongruous sight for Western eyes was a photo- graph of Nixon meeting Chair- man Mao two large wlrite tpifoona handily placed near their feet. The spittoon, obsolete In the West, is still popular with the Chinese, who believe a hearty spit every now and then is good for the health. USE CHOPSTICKS Then American television viewers saw live coverage of a banquet given by Premier Chou En-lai, and watched Mr. nnd Mrs. Nixon wield chop- sticks manfully, if not ex- pertly, while a Cliinese Peo- ple's Liberal inn Army band played America the Beautiful. On the U.S. presi- dent and Mrs. Nixon saw a ballet called Red Detachment of Women, which Nixon later praised as equal to anything he had seen in the United States or the Soviet Union. Tha modem revolutionary ballet telb the story of Com- munist guerrilla forces fight- ing the Nationalist Chinese, and includes a scene where a caricature of Natioalist leader Chiang trip cently as old Mend by used ior target practice. Friday's visit to the Forbid- den City saw the U.S. presi- dent being helped down a flight of icy slcps by a Chinese soldier, clad in the same drab-green uniform with a distinctive single red star on the cap that was worn by Chinese troops fighting Amer- icana in Korea in Uie early 1050s. Shot Irish minister on the mend From AP-REUTER BELFAST (CPI Northern Ireland's hard-line home ajfairs minister, John Taylor, hit by six bullets in en assassination at- tempt, was reported out ot dan- ger today in hospital here. Taylor was hit by two bullets In the wall of the chest' one in the neck, two in the jaw and one in the hand Friday night. Militant leftists of the out- lawed Irish Republican Army said today they gunned down the young cabinet minister be- cause of his tough line of intern- ing suspected IRA terrorists without trial. Bombs blasted a furniture, store and a wallpaper shop and a sporting goods store in Lon- donderry today. In all cases, terrorists cleared tbe shops be- fore the explosions and no one was hurt. Taylor, who once accused the British Army of beJng Loo soft on the IRA, was ambushed as he left his family's engineering business in Armagh. The gun- men used a sub-machine-gun. Liquor, cig ads decision awaited VANCOUVER (CP) Deci- sion was reserved Friday in a test case launched by seven firms challenging the validity of British Columbia govern- ment legislation banning the advertising of liquor and tobac- co. Mr. Justice E. E. Hinkson of B.C. Supreme Court, concluded four days of technical legal ar- gument, said he still had prob- lems lo consider in relation to the case nnd it would be some time before he reached a deci- sion. Four national tobacco com- panies and three publishing firms brought the action against Attorney-General Les- lie Peterson, charging that the Tobacco Advertising Restraint Act and amendments lo the Li- quor Control Act, which took j effect .Sept. 1U71, exceeded i tbe im'iViorily ot the provincial legislature.
