Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 3, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta I THI LITHMIDQI HHAID Mmdoy, Jmiwry I, Senators differ on date for assent to farm bill OTTAWA (CP) If senators Orville Phillips and Paul Martin arc right, hell will freeze over Jan. the same time royaJ assent is given legislation to establish national farm mar- keting agencies. Senator Phillips (PC-Prince Edward Island) Friday said "hell will freeze over" before royal assent is given the conten- tious legistlation. Senator Mar- tin, government leader in the chamber, said royal assent probably can be expected Jan. 10. This was after the Senate ag- riculture committee dug In its heels and adjourned until Jan. 6 with the bill still before it, de- spite the Commons having sat all night to ensure passage for Jan. l enactment. The senators obviously were (eeling testy after haying hus- tled through the massive tax bit to meet a government dead- line last week. Agriculture Minuter H. A Olson, wan and tired after sit ting through the light, then at lending ComnmH adjournment debate before waiting again for hours for the senate decision tried time and again to impres the senators with the urgency o the bill. PEAKS FLAREUP Skipping over the (act that 1 had been under Comment con sideration for 21 months, Mr Olson told the senate committee British-Rhodesian settlement terms rejected by council SALISBURY (AP) The Af- rican National Council rejected today the terms for a British- Rhodesian settlement, calling them a legalization of the white-minority government's unilateral declaration of inde- pendence from Britain in 1765. The council considers the dec- laration to be treason. The terms are to be tested for their acceptability by a British mission headed by Lord Pearce begmning next week. Police probe cause of hospital fire TERKEBONNE, Que. (CP) Investigations were to continue today into the cause of a fire which took eight lives and de- stroyed a hospital Friday. Police said early indications were the fire started tn a fur- nace room in the 70-bed SL Louis de Terrebonne hospital in this town, 20 miles north of Montreal. The body of the eighth victim was recovered from the ruins of the hospital Sunday morning. The eight elderly women who died in the fire were among some 35 chiDnicaUj-Ul on the second floor of the hospi- tal when fire broke out at a.m. Friday. The names of the victims have not been released. A spokesman for Claude Cas- tonguay, social affairs minister, said in Quebec City Saturday the indications were the fire was accidental. The private hospital, a con- verted house, met all required safety slaadiixis except for a few minor recommendations during an Inspection last March, he said. Four bodies were recovered from the smoking debris Friday afternoon and another three were found Saturday after heavy equipment was brought in to move the wreckage. FAST EFFICIENT SERVICE! OPTICAL PBISC9IPTION CO. The chairman of the council, Methodist Bishop Abel T. Muzo- newa, said In the prepared state- ment at a news conference that Africans have always demanded Independence before majority rule. The commission to carry out the test of acceptability is com- posed entirely of white men, he said, and Lord Pearce could not be trusted by Africans because he had come out on the side of "illegal measures in the interest of law and order" in the Rhode- sian constitutional test case. Africans reject the concept of parity between white and black in Parliament as he said, and insist on black major- ity rule. The council, he said, "is hor- rified to see that many detai- nees and restricted who are recognized leaders of the Afri- can people are to remain in prisons, detention camps and restriction areas while the fate Cup of Milk Glyle Hlnmin, CirfflTm ..I Crystal Sprlna Celcny Migralh Anonymwi, UthbrkJgt Young People put on loek- oll hop, Viuxh Anonymoui, Ltlftbrld in mtmory of J ftbrldci osephin ine A.

The president, who conferred with the higher couotil of the armed forces for 3% hours Sun- day, also discussed the com- manders' report] on strategy to be followed at this delicate state in the Middle East crin, the newspaper says. The paper says the meeting also concentrated on the evalua- tion of Israeli troops in Sinai and their expected dur- ing a future battle. he feared another flare-up if last spring's chicken and eft war if the legislation wasn't up proved promptly.
