At the order of Congress, the change will not affect Hawaii, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico or most of Indiana. In addition, Transportation Secretary Claude Brinegar. acting for President Nixon, exempted the mountain time zone areas of Idaho, Oregon and Arizona Friday and agreed to a request by Kentucky to include all but 12 northeastern counties in the central time zone. Law and order AG sworn in WASHINGTON (AP) -Casting himself as a “law and order man,” William Saxbe has taken over the U.S. justice department as the country’s 70th attorney general and President Nixon’s fifth. As he took the oath of office Friday he pledged to "operate this office as to bring credit on law and the legal process in this country, on courts, on individual lawyers.” The former Ohio senator, 57, said the law “is for the purpose of bringing order in our society” so that an individual can express himself “without fear of Big Brother taking over, without fear of Big Brother interfering in his personal life, without the fear of Big Brother doing those things outside the scope of the law in the name of protection, in the name of defence,” Spanish Basques arrested BORDEAUX, France (Reuter) — Three of the four men who gave a clandestine news conference last week claiming responsibility for the assassination of Spanish premier Luis Carrero Blanco were found and arrested here today, police said.

Firemen said there may be another four bodies in the rubble. At least three people are in hospital with injuries. Money flowing in from oil surcharge By THE CANADIAN PRESS Parliament acted on two en«rgy-crisis bills Friday, one to prepare for possible fuel rationing and another to raise the export tax on petroleum. The Commons resources committee passed an energy-allocation bill empowering the cabinet to set up a five-man allocation board that would decide who may buy fuels at the wholesale level. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said the bill, which still faces Commons approval, would not come into force until a formal declaration of an energy emergency. Such a declaration would require the approval of Commons and Senate. Parliament would also have to pass further legislation before rationing of retail sales would be possible. The Commons also gave second reading to the oil export tax bill which now comes up for a final vote Monday night. The bill would give the cabinet authority to adjust the export charge monthly after Feb. 1 when the rate is scheduled to jump to $6.40 a barrel from ».20. Finance Minister John Henry - Moshe talks continue Former slave dies at 118 ALEXANDRIA, La (AP) — Polly Mason, a former slave born when Franklin Pierce was president of the United States, died at her nearby Woodworth home Friday She was 118 Recently asked to what she attributed her long life, she replied: “Red beans and rice, chewing tobacco, and 3 quart of corn liquor every day for the last 80 years.” Inferno Smoke billows skyward as a fireboat and tugs pour water onto a burning marine fueling barge in Vancouver harbor Friday.

Barker, one of the five Watergate break-in defendants who pleaded guilty to burglary, conspiracy and wiretapping in the break-in of Democratic party headquarters in 1972, could barely speak because of the paralysis. He said a doctor at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida, where he has been imprisoned since early November, diagnosed the ailment as Bell’s palsy. He said It was caused by exposure to cold while he was digging a ditch at Eglin a week or 10 days ago. Temperatures in the area ranged from the 40s to the 60s during the period in which Barker said he suffered exposure. Treasure dumped back into sea ISLAMORADA, Fla.

DUNLOP FORD’S ^ SELL-OUT Exhibition Pavilion January 23rd to 26th VANCOUVER (CP) - The search resumed today for the bodies of at least two persons killed when a marine fueling barge exploded and burned Friday in Vancouver’s Coal Harbor. The 30-year-old wooden barge, used to refuel pleasure boats and small commercial vessels such as fishing boats, was owned by Home Oil Distributors Ltd., a subsidiary of Imperial Oil Ltd. Stanley Knapp, Home Oil consumer sales manager, said it wasn’t known how many people were aboard “but there was an operator and probably at least one person on the pleasure boat.” One of the victims was identified as John Bannerman Campbell, 46, of North Vancouver who worked on the barge. Some witnesses said there may have been a second small boat tied to the barge. TANKS WEREN’T FULL A Home spokesman said the barge tanks had a capacity of 60,000 gallons of fuel, including diesel oil, gasoline and stove oil. Police said the barge tanks were about one-third full. Intense heat from the blaze barge blistered paint and broke windows on the Esso barge 100 yards south and the Standard barge 100 yards north in the row of four fuel barges. Vancouver Fire Chief Armand König said it was im* possible to sink the barge because of the flotation from partly filled tanks. The fireboat did not have sufficient foam to smother the flames and it was safer from a water-pollution viewpoint to have all the oil burned, he said. EDMONTON BUS STRIKE ENTERS SIXTH WEEK EDMONTON (CP) - A meeting Friday failed to resolve the current transit strike and city residents today are in their sixth weekend without bus service. Mayor Ivor Dent had said earlier this week he was confident an agreement could be reached Friday to end the strike which began No. 29. He did not comment on the results of the meeting. A spokesman for the provincial industial relations .board said following the session, which lasted about four hours, another meeting has been scheduled Monday. The 680 transit employees, members of the Amalgamated Transit Workers’ Local 569, went on strike in support of wage demands. The union is asking for a top wage of $5,81 an hour at the end of a 24 -month contract. The latest known offer by the city if $5.80 an hour over 25 months but the union objected to the timing of increments in the city’s offer. The transit system is owned and operated by the city. From AP-REUTER WASHINGTON (CP) - Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Dayan is discussing with U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger what would be expected from Egypt in return for a sizable Israeli withdrawal from the Suez canal. Also on the agenda of today’s resumed discussions was the distance to be m^n-tained between the opposing armies when they do separate and the kinds of weapons to be permitted in the area. But Dayan denied that he had flown to Washington with a specific plan in mind. “I really do think it is too early to discuss a plan which I ' hope one day will be agreed to by Israel and the Egyptians,” the defence minister told reporters after an apparently inconclusive three-hour session with Kissinger Friday. Kissinger indicated that the United States and Israel are in some disagreement about disengagement. He said he and Dayan had discussed “the principles” that the Israeli brought with him and that “we presented some of our own ideas.” Dayan also talked for an hour with Defence Secretary James Schlesinger. He is seeking new jets, antitank missiles and other sophisticated weapons. An Israeli pullback from the canal is an anticipated first step in a Middle East peace settlement. The question is whether a buffer between the opposing armies would be set up, Egyptian forces on the east bank “thinned out” and the canal re-opened to Israeli shipping. ifome sources indicated that Dayan might meet with Soviet ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin, the main conduit of U.S.-Soviet communications, and Ashraf Ghorbal, head of the Egyptian diplomatic mission here. Dayan is expected to return to Israel in time to report to the regular Sunday cabinet session Ulster moderates try to ‘isolate’ radicals BELFAST (Reuter) ~ Northern Ireland’s fledgling executive faces an uncertain fiUure after Protestants re- jected the new political settlement Friday night and infhcted a shattering personal defeat on their moderate the the Argentine guerrillas warn against change ' CITY OF LETHBRIDGE FIRE DEPARTMENT As to the completion of the new Fire Department Headquarters the following phone numbers will be In service: Fire Chief L H.

From AP-REUTER BUENOS AIRES (CP) -Argentine parliamentarians have been warned by Marxist guerrillas not to support tough new penalties proposed for kidnappers, news reports say. The leftist newspaper El Mundo says the legislators have been told by the outlawed People’s Revolutionary Army (ERP) that it will mark them down as “criminals against popular justice” if they vote for reforms to the penal code bringing in the new sentences. The reforms, which raise the penalties for kidnappings, murder, bomb attacks and incitement to violence, are due to be discussed in Congress Jan. 10. El Mundo says the leaders of party groups in parliament • have received letters from the guerrilla group saying that passage of the reforms would take Argentina back to the days of the “military dictatorship” before May 25, SAND GRAVEL ASPHALT TOLLESTRUPi SAND *ml QRAVEL C«mlniellofi Co.

PHONG 3îl-2T0î-3ir-«1tl when the Peronists took over after nearly seven years of military rule, ERP has claimed responsibility for the kidnappings of at least six of the 14 foreign businessmen seized during 1973. An estimated 200 Argentines also were seized during the year by guerrillas and gangs of common criminals in one of the worst years for kidnappings that Argentina has known. Six still are being held captive Two men have been seized in the first three days of the New Year. The latest was Argentineborn Douglas Gordon Roberts, 46, an executive of Pepsi Cola, kidnapped Thursday night. leader, Brian Faulkner. A mass meeting of Ulster Unionist Council, chief platform for the British province's dominant political party, voted against accepting the settlement worked out by Faulkner and Catholic members of the new executive with Britain and the Irish republic last month. The unionists’ main objection was to the proposal to set up a council for Ireland which would establish the first formal ties between the two parts of the divided country. Faulkner rejected a demand that he should resign as party leader but officials speculated that he may try to set up a new Unionist party to isolate the dissidents. Hinting at this possibility Friday night, Faulkner said he and his moderate supporters now would be looking at ways of mobilizing grass-root Unionist support across Northern Ireland. Solzhenitsyn expecting arrest, trial PARIS (Reuter) — Three French lawyers say Soviet dissident author Alexander Solzhenitsyn expects to be arrested and put on trial because of publication in the West of his latest book. Gulag Archipelago, which describes the vast prison camp system in the Soviet Union. 'The lawyers, who saw Solzhenitsyn during a trip to Russia late last month, said Friday the Nobel Prize-winning author told them he was not afraid of going to prison. They said he told them: “I wiU be judged. I’m not afraid. I know the risks, but I've lived a lot. I’ve been to prison.” Solzhenitsyn spent 10 years in a Soviet forced labor camp near the end of the Second World War for having criticized Stalin, and five more years in exile in Siberia. The author told the lawyers he expected Soviet authorities would prosecute him because he bypassed a recently-created Soviet agency which has the sole right to publish Soviet authors' works abroad. Gulag Archipelago was published here Dec. 28 in Russian by the small YMCA Press. It IS to be published soon in English, French, German and other languages. Warning HARTFORD (AP) -Eastern seaboard residents have been warned of possible tidal dangers in the next month due to a relatively rare alignment of the moon and sun On both Jan. B and Feb. 7 the alignment of a full moon and sun will produce "unusually high tides along the mid-Atlantic,” says the Hartford Insurance Group, a leading property and liability insurer. Tunwr shepherded the bill through second reading in spite of objections from opposition members that sections of the bill pertaining to disposition of revenue from the tax should be held up pending the outcome of a federal-provincial premiers' conference in Ottawa Jan. 22-23. Mr. 'himer said revenues from the export levy after Feb. 1 would be shared according to arrangements made during the federal-provincial consultation. In an interview later, Mr. Turner said the federal government has collected ^6 million in two months from the export tax—during October and November when the tax was pegged at 40 cents a barrel. The tax rose to ¥1.90 in December, 12.20 in January and the government intends to replace it with a “charge” of ¥6.40 a barrel in February. Canada exported 1,119,000 barrels daily in October and 1,005,000 barrels a day in November. At 40 cents a barrel the tax generated almost $14 million for October and |12 million in November. December exports dropped to 978,000 barrels a day but with the tax raised to ¥1.90 a barrel, total revenue will amount to $57.6 million. January exports will bring in about $66.5 million and if the levy goes to $6.40, February will yield $175 million. OFFERED 50 PER CENT The federal government has offered oil-producing provinces 50 per cent of all money raised by the tax up to Feb. 1, and has promised to spend the remainder developing new energy sources in Western Canada. Beyond Feb. 1, when the largest revenues start coming m, no decision has been made on how to spend tlie money. Mr. Turner told the House that oil-producing provinces stand to earn substantial revenue if the price of petroleum sold on Canada's domestic market —^ now frozen at $4 a barrel - is allowed to rise to the going international price of more than $10 a barrel. He estimated that if the provinces allow oil companies to take half of the profits realized from such a domestic increase, provincial coffers would still be swelled by the other half, in the range of $2.5 billion “About 84 per cent sni that total would accrue 'to the Alberta treasiypy,” Mr. Turner said “UflGet circu^r-stances likfe these, Ve be forced to consider appropriate modifications to the equalization formula.” Meanwhile in Montreal, spokesmen for six oil refineries in the area said the oil shortage predicted for this winter has hot yet materialized. SUPPLIES PLENTIFUL Spokesmen at all refineries said there has been no difficulty obtaining crude oil supplies in recent months, despite curtailed production in some Arab states. Montreal refineries have been operating at capacity, they said, and one, Gulf Oil, reported it is exceeding its normal production output of 67,500 barrels a day by more than 10 per cent BRIDGE RUG & DRAPES LTD.
