NANAIMO, B.C. (CP) Schools here were to continue operating on an hour-a-day basis today following a deci- sion by the Nanaimo district school board after schools were picketed Monday by Local 606 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees. Board chairman Joe Kliner announced the interim measure laken by the board in Ihe face of a continuing rotating strike by 175 non- teaching employees of the school district. A board meeting was held Monday lo decide ways lo get assignments to students and back to teachers after bus ser- vice was withdrawn by union members. The regular bus runs were cancelled when the drivers went strike. Estimates of the number of children unable to atlend classes were unknown but more than studenls use Ihe buses lo gel lo school. Mr. Kliner said the board closed the schools because of "the unpredictability of ser- vice." "We're trealing this as a general strike rather than a rotaling one, al least for the liine he said. The Vancouver Island dis- Iricl's 43 schools were open for one hour Monday allowing teachers to hand out assignments. Negolialions between CUPE and Ihe school board broke down Saturday. Nick Mieras, union president, said the union was close to agreement with the school board on wages, but said Ihe two sides were still far aparl on the issue of job securily. which must be the key issue in further negotiations.

(AP) In the wake of sporadic gunfire, the Wisconsin national guard has been ordered to take charge of law enforcemenl and negotiations at a religious estate which Indian demonstrators occupied lasl week. Governor Patrich Lucey said Monday lhal a 250-man detachment of the guard was requested by Shawano County authorities to relieve municipal police who have maintained an armed ring around Ihe eslale and ils 64- room mansion. Aboul 45 demonslrators, in- cluding women and children, evicted the former novitiate's caretaker Wednesday. The group, calling itself the Men- ominee Warrior Society, said il wants the estate donated to Indians as a health centre. The Alexian Brothers, a Chicago-based Roman Catholic order, ceased using the eslale as a novitiate in 1968 and has been trying to lease or sell it. Weekend ceasefire pacts had been interrupted by gunshots from the estate, with law enforcement officers returning some of the fire. There were no reports of deaths or injuries. Authorities said demonstra- tors could be seen on the es- tate gathering firewood and apparently hunting game. Several persons have been taken inlo cuslody while Iry- ing lo slip through police lines with food for demonstrators. Black Muslim sentenced to 110 years WASHINGTON (Reuter) A United States federal judge has sentenced Ronald Harvey, 34, to a minimum sentence of 140 years in prison for order- ing the murders of seven per- sons here two years ago. Harvey is the fourth defend- ant to be conyicled in Ihe case and sentenced to seven con- secutive sentences of from 20 years to life. Five children and two male members of the Hanafi Muslim sect were murdered by Black Muslims in apparent retaliation. The victims were leading a communal life in a three- slorey Washinglon home given to them by basketball star Kareern Abdel Jabbar. A major split in the U.S. Muslim movement came in 1904 after Malcolm X broke with Elijah Muhammad, and a vear later was assassinated. Seely, Kurt Kandler, Ronald File and John Raybould. The suit said they were minority stockholders in the Mexican company and were forced to sell their interest. They claim an agent of the parent company, Russell Ballard, told them that the Mexican government threatened to cut off the com- pany. The suit claims theft and other statements were fraudulent.

Killer polar bear veteran of clashes with humans INUVIK, N.W.T. employee of Imperial Oil Ltd. who was at the Mackenzie Delta oil rig 100 miles north of here where an 18-year-old oil worker was killed by a polar bear Sunday said Monday the hear had been removed from inhabited areas at least three times before. The worker, who asked not to be identified by name, also said workers were powerless to chase off the bear, whieh ate virtually all of the body of the dead man before it was shot by a native man flown in by the RCMP. The oil worker said the camp was not equipped will] a rifle even though polar bears frequent the area around the camp. The only weapon available to the men in the camp was a flare pistol, he said. The worker said "it is just horrible to sit there and watch a bear eat a man.'' Richard Pernitzky of Dawson Creek, B.C., was kill- ed by the bear Sunday morn- ing near a drilling barge. The oil worker said in an interview the dead man was walking from his work station to the living quarters section of the barge when he was ap- parently attacked by the bear, which may have been hiding or sleeping on or near the barge. When the worker did not arrive at the living quarters, a search party was organized but because of darkness they were unable to begin a full search until noon when the sun rose. The search party found the head of the dead man on the ice about 100 feet from camp. Articles of clothing were spread over a wide area. The bear was located about liOO yards from camp. It was still clutching the remains of the dead man. The oil worker said that although the men were close enough to kill the bear they had no weapons. They fired a flare at it and drove bulldozers at the bear, but the animal held onto the remains and showed little fear of the activity. Northwest Territories law forbids anyone but a native person from killing a polar bear. A native worker at the camp was later given a war surplus rifle which had been brought from another camp but because the sights on the rifle were damaged the bear was not hit by the gunfire. HCMP from Inuvik flew to the scene and a native man who had been brought with them shot and killed the bear. The oil worker said the only purls of the body which were recovered were the backbone, an arm. a leg, and a few ribs. Three metal tags were at- tached to the ear of the bear, indicating it had been tran- quillized and removed from civilization at least three times. Other oil workers saw the same bear at the garbage dump of a nearby camp several days before the attack but did not report the bear to either company officials or RCMP. said the oil worker. Prisoner slashes wrist EDMONTON (CP) A 21- year-old Fort McMurray man slashed his wrist Monday, hours before he was to appear in court to be ordered held in custody until Feb. 24 on a charge of murder punishable by life imprisonment. Charles Albert Lacorde was charged in connection with the death of a Fort McMurray woman found beaten to death last July. A warrant was issued for Debbie Leslie Whittaker, 18, of Edmonton, charged along with Lacorde. when she failed to appear for the setting of a trial date. Jim Macdonald. director of the Fort Saskatchewan Con ectional Institute, said Lacorde was found bleeding in his cell about 1 a.m. Eight stitches were re- quired to close the wound, Mr. Macdonald said. He added that officials have not determined what the prisoner used to inflict the in- jury. Ford policy will require ;some personal sacrifice' WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. Treasury Secretary William Simon says President Ford plans a new energy conservation program that "will necessarily mean a degree of personal sac- rifice." The adminislration energy- economic strategy will be "tough, comprehensive and Simon said Mon- day. He also hinted at tax cuts and additional help for the unemployed in a program to be formally announced Jan. 20. Meanwhile, Alan Green- span, Ford's chief economist, told a congressional com- mittee that recovery from the current recession will take many months and is unlikely to reduce spiraling unemploy- menl Ihis year. Greenspan said Ihe United Stales jobless rale, now 7.1 per cenl, probably will climb even higher this year, and that it is logical to assume that unemployment will not be reduced much below 6.5 per cent during 1976: He said an anticipated turn- around in the depressed au- tomobile and housing in- dustries, along with depletion of induslrial invenlories, "should begin lo lift total production during Ihe second half of the year." But "the recovery is unlikely to provide much of a reduclion in un- employmenl this year." Simon said Ford's new eco- nomic program will put equal stress on anti-inflation meas- ures and efforts to fight the recession. "We cannot afford the lux- ury of concentrating upon one at the expense of the olher, for bolh are social the treasury secretary said. The administralion is re- ported to he considering a plan to discourage fuel con- sumption by raising Ihe price of both domestic and imported oil by a barrel, which might lead to a gasoline price hike of about 7.5 cents per gallon at the pump. In other economic develop- ments Monday: automobile industry reported that U.S. car sales were down 23 per cent from 1973, the second worst per- formance in 11 years. per cent of the industry's hourly workforce of layoffs this monlh as Ihe auto companies cut production. from Ihe U.S. Federal Reserve Board show- ed that consumers cut back on their indebtedness by a record million in November, re- flecting a drastic drop in bor- rowing for new cars and per- sonal loans. The figures gave further evidence of low con- sumer confidence in the econ- omy's health. Wallich, a member of the Federal Reserve Board, said U.S. companies face pos- sible bankruptcies if banks and corporations don't adjust their response to inflation. He said banks should concentrate on building up the capital they have io support their lending activilies. U.S. labor deparl- menl allocated million to state and local governments for creation of public service jobs to alleviate un- employment. The action rais- ed to more than billion Ihe amounl of federal money granted Ihe last six months to provide a total of about jobs. THE FAMILY CIRCUS "This ruler's been lost for a long time, but I finally found it in my desk drawer." Changing Wall Street Wall Street, America's staid financial center and home of the New York and American Stock Exchanges, is currently in Ihe throes of metamorphosis. Though the actual building has changed very little in appearance from those hec- tic days at the turn of the cen- tury a lot else has chang- ed there. The ancient-cable printer (right) used to transmit closing stock prices to brokers across the country has been dis- carded for a new system, designed by the Trans-Lux Corp. (bottom, Stock quotes are sent via a sophisticated keyboard-monitor teleprinter which televises elos 'ing prices on a small screen and relays them to waiting brokers Another dramatic change in distributing stock prices is the retirement of the familiar glass-domed ticker (bottom far right) designed by Thomas Edison in 1870. Trans-Lux has a consolidated tapi sjstcin (below, right) which reports transactions via paper tape and can be installed anywhere. The new electronic ticker can report closing prices of selected stocks rather than V nil of them. x, ;
