Gty juveniles charged with break-in and theft A trio of Lethbridge juveniles were arrested in Taber early tills morning following a brealr- in and theft of cash and a truck from Lethbridge. Budget cuts urged by committee CALGARY (CP) City coun- cil should adopt a "get tough" policy and reduce the spending programs of schools, hospitals and the police commission, Roy Farran, chairman of the citi- zens' budget committee said Thursday. The Progressive Conserva- tive MLA for Calgary North Hill urged council to cut "with- out compunction" the budgets of semi-autonomous groups. "We're facing a rough year, so perhaps it's time for the good for our health tha't we had faceoff." "Although there may be no legislation for appeal against extravagant supplementary re- quisitions, council should exer- cise its natural rights as the taxing authority." The citizens' commission sug- g e s t s all semi-autonomous boards submit their budgets to council for approval. Condition belter COPENHAGEN (AP) King Frederik's doctors today re- ported definite improvement in the condition of the 72-year-old Danish monarch. It was the most favorable bulletin issued since he was taken to hospital Monday after a heart attack. The announcement from the Municipal Hospital said the king spent a "good and quiet night with a continued Improvement of the general condition." Taber town police reported the youths were stopped during a routine vehicle check at about a.m. They admitted they had stolen a truck and in cash from the Modern Farm Ltd., 1251 2nd Ave. S. in Leth- bridge. A check with Lethbridge dty police revealed that the three had been released Tuesday af- ter being held overnight for several break-ins and damage to Lethbridge schools and bus! nesses during December. A Lethbridge police official said it is customary to release juveniles to their parents or guardians as soon as possible. He said a juvenile may be held for no longer than four days in custody and then must be brought before a judge ot the juvenile court for disposi- tion. "It Is obvious that the par- ents of the two 15-year-olds and the 14-year-old have been un- able to control them and we will keep the youths in custody until Monday when the law re- quires that they appear in the official said.

But it also paves the way for similar agen- cjes for any farm product, if the bulk of producers vote to set one up. Under the en- abling agencies also could be set up provincially and regionally. All would be co-ordinated by a na- tional council. Tire bill passed the Commons after an all-night session Dec. 31. Passage by the Senate was expected the same day, but some senators balked and de- cided to take a detailed look at the bill Thursday. HAVE LAST SAY Four farm representatives, reiterating stands they had taken on the bill during Com- m o n s committee discussion, took ths opportunity to have one last say before C-176 becomes law. Others sent letters and tel- igrams outlining their positions. Of thsse who appeared, Jo- seph Hudson of Lynn, Ont., one of the province's biggest egg producers, remained adamantly opposed to the legislation. He decried the market regulations and quotas that would be im- posed on his product. But other poultry producers, represented by David Kirk, ex- ecutive secretary of the Cana- dian Federation of Agriculture and secretary of the Canadian Egg Producers Council, are known to favor a regulated chicken, egg and turkey mar- ket. Mr. Kirk said the federation always has favored the legisla- tion, feeling It would lead to bet ter management and develop- ment of Canadian agriculture. The majority of pioultry pro- ducers also favor the bill that would end the problems of over-supply and low prices. WOULD HINDER TRADE The two other witnesses to ap- pear, Roy Atkinson, president of the National Farmers' Union, and Charles Gracey, manager of the Canadian Cattlemen's As- sociation, said the bill would hinder domestic farm trade. Provincial marketing agen- cies should not be allowed where a national agency ex- isted, Mr. Atkinson said. The two would tend to work at cross purposes. Mr. Grecey said the bill would fragment farm trade. Al- though cattlemen "could live with the legislation as it cattle are ex- pressed concern that the bill did not specifically say a plebiscite would be held by producers be- fore a marketing agency was established. Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson spent two of the 6V4-hour committee meeting answering detailed questions and the gov- ernment majority on the com- mittee voted down five formal amendments before approving the bill. C-176 is the last piece of legis- lation on the government agenda for the current third session of this Parliament. Apart from the Senate and MPs on alert for the brief, joint session for routine royal assent next week, Parliament is on hol- iday until Feb. 16. Manitoba may pay medicare with taxation WINNIPEG (CP) Health Minister Rene Toupin said Thursday the Manitoba govern- ment may decide within the next year to abolish medical care and hospital insurance premiums and collect all nec- essary revenue for these pro- grams through taxation. Speaking on an open line radio program, Mr. Toupin said his department has stud- ied the proposal In the past, but it has not yet been dealt with by cabinet. "We could be considering In the future the complete with- drawal of all medicare pre- he said. It was possi- ble the step might be taken within the next 12 months. Manitoba's combined med- ical care and hospital insur- ance premium now Is a month for a single person and for a family. The medical care portion of the premium was reduced 88 per cent by the New Demo- cratic Party government short- ly after it took office In June, 1969, and Income taxes raised to pay for the reduction.

Prof. Leonard Savratzky, who Is preparing a book on Men- nonite colonization in South America, said in an Interview "there is a large and growing sentiment for emigration" among Mennonites because of hostility in government and In the news media, and they could return to Canada. The colonists were granted a "privcligeum" issued in 1821 by President Alvaro Obrcgon granting them exemption from military service and the right to hold land In the name of the colony rather than as indivi- duals. ings by the commission, with people equally concerned about strip mining whether they lived in the foothills, the moun- tains or on the prairie. He said there was consider- able agreement that good rec- lamation can be achieved on the prairies and In the foot- hills, but in the mountains there is a more serious prob- lem.

TORONTO (CP) The On- tario Securities Commission said today it plans to seek a Ju- dicial ruling on whether execu- tives of Kaiser Steel Corp. of the United States violated On- tario law In stock dealings in- volving the shares of a Cana- dian subsidiary. Thirty-six executives of Kai- ser Steel confirmed earlier this week that they had purchased stock in Kaiser Resources Ltd., a Canadian subsidiary, through KRL Investments Ltd., an In- vestment firm registered in Hal- ifax. Shares of Kaiser Resources could not be purchased directly by U.S. residents because they Liberal MP calls for govt. probe VANCOUVER (CP) Doug Hogarth, Liberal MP for New Westminster, B.C., has called for a federal Investigation of Kaiser Steel and government withdrawal from arrangements pending with the American cor- poration. Mr. Hogarth said Thursday he has written to Prime Minister Trudeau asking for an investi- gation by a House of Commons committee and withdrawal from dealings with the company pending "a full and satisfactory explanation of this apparent de- ceit." The company Is being investi- gated by the securities commis- sions of Ontario, British Colum- bia and Quebec after an article in the Wall Street Journal re- ported 36 executives of Kaiser Steel in Oakland set up a pri- vate company in Toronto to buy shares in Kaiser Resources Ltd. which were supposed to be on sale to Canadians only. The newspaper said a sub- stantial number of the Kaiser Resources shares bought on behalf of the executives at S12 were sold at a profit early in 1970. The company's failure to meet delivery contracts of B.C. coking coal to Japan drove the share price as low us in 1971. PLANS B.C. PROJECT Mr. Hogarth proposed sus- pending a Kaiser option to lease property at Roberts Bank and Kaiser's application to buy another acres of coal- bearing land in the middle of its current holdings in the Koot- enay area of B.C. The government holds title to the Kootenay property. He also suggested the govern- ment suspend Kaiser's applica- Venezuelan crews train in Alberta COLD LAKE (CP) Ven- ezuelan ground and air crews began training today in opera- tion of CF-5 jet fighters at this Canadian Forces Base In northeastern Alberta.

Thoy Included 18 single sealers, two dual train- ers from tho department of na- tional defence and two more from Camdair In Moo- (ML tion to ship coal from the Koot- enays to Roberts Bank via U.S. rails, bypassing Canadian rail- ways. "One of the most serious as- pects with our incoming capital is how to control degree of for- eign said Mr. Ho- garth. "It is clear from this Kaiser situation that foreign investors can ignore commitments, le- gally If not morally, by setting up trusts like this In Toronto. "The government, in consi- dering its policy on incoming capital, is going to have to dem- onstrate that when a moral commitment, such as this one, is breached, the strongest possi- ble action is taken against the companies that choose to act that way." Kaiser Resources moved to Thursday on the Toronto stock exchange from a Wednes- day low of ?4.15.

In the year-end survey, con- ducted Public Opinion Re- search of Israel Ltd., Is- raelis were alao asked to se- lect "the most positive person in 1971." In the negative list, Sapir, noted for hfe stringent budgets and heavy taxes, took 5.4 per cent of the vote. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat led with 23.8 per cent and Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin had 10 per cent. Gucrri la leader Arafat was well down the list, with a mere 0.7 per cent. Heading the roll of "most positive" persons of 1971 was Israeli Prime Minister Golda Mclr, 31 per cent, followed by Defence Minister Moahe Dayan at per cent and U.S. PrtMdent Nixon it were not registered for sale in that country. The shares began a sharp de- cline shortly after the Kaiser executives sold most of their holdings at a substantial profit. The commission said 11 ap- peared that some Insider trad- ing in the stock had not been re- ported to the commission, as re- quired under Ontario securities law. These regulations require company officers, directors and closely asso- ciated with the company or holding a substantial number of report share transac- tions to the commission by the lOUi of the month following the transaction The commission said In a statement that "some of the in- siders of Kaiser Resources Ltd. have not been reporting trades in shares of Kaiser Resources Ltd. held by KRL Investments Ltd. 'The commission is of the opinion that these insiders have not complied .with the require- ments of the Securities Act, and that they are indirect beneficial owners of these shares through their pro rata beneficial owner- ship of KRL Investments Ltd. "Steps are being taken by the commission to test this aspect of the law." The commission said it would ask for a ruling from the On- tario Supreme Court directing that "these insiders, report sucn trades under the insider trading requirements of the Securities Act." The share dealings were first reported Wednesday by the Wall Street Journal. The company later confirmed the transactions, and said that both Canadian and U.S. lawyers had reviewed the matter and "advised that the purchase complied with all applicable U.S. and Canadian laws."
