WAK STRAGGLER BACK AFTER HIDING 30 YEARS TAIPEI (AP) Teruo Nakamura returned home Wednesday after 30 years of hiding in Indonesian jungles to his wife and a son he had not seen when he left with the Japanese army in 1942. Nakamura, who was recently discovered living on Indonesia's Morotai island, appeared momentarily stunned by the flashes of about 90 photographers who swarmed around him as he stepped off a plane. He held a warm reunion with his wife, Li Lan-ying, and their son, Li Hung, who was not yet born when Chinese name is Li left for the war. His wife was unable to hold back tears. Then years after Nakamura was reported missing on March 25, 1945, she married Huang Chin-mu. But Huang, 73, has agreed to step aside and Mrs. Nakamura plans to give him a small house and a water buffalo as consolation gifts. Both Nakamura and his wife are 57. Taiwan was under Japanese rule when Nakamura entered the Japanese army. He opted to return to his native Taiwan. From the airport Nakamura was taken downtown to meet Shieh Tung-min, governor of Taiwan Province.

Senator Bill Brock, a con- servative Republican from Tennessee, announced Wednesday that he has written again to State Secretary Henry Kissinger, accusing the White House and the state department of fail- ing "to exercise the lead- ership necessary to protect important United States inter- ests." In the absence of such lead- ership, Brock wrote, Congress may attempt to fill the void. Citing current negotiations between Canada and the U.S. about a pipeline-security agreement, Brock said: "If no apparent progress is made in achieving a more amenable Canadian policy, this treaty could afford a convenient vehicle for less attractive op- tions" imposed by Congress. Brock and 16 other U.S. senators wrote to Kissinger six weeks ago, proposing that the state department consider a threat to tax or interfere with Canadian-owned oil when it crosses American soil, un- less Canada reduces its barrel tax on oil exports. Linwood Holton, assistant secretary of state for congressional relations, replied last week that "it has become more urgent than ever that we work in a co- operative manner with Cana- dian authorities" in view of Canada's decision to phase out all its oil exports within eight years. Holton said the department has repeatedly protested against the Canadian tax, call- ing it "undesirable and short- sighted since it tends to sup- port the pricing policies of the OPEC oil cartel and shifts to United States consumers the effect that these prices would CJOC PROUDLY PRESENTS: IN PERSON THE ORIGINAL 'HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS" vs THE NEW YORK NATIONALS PLUS GREAT HALF TIME ENTERTAINMENT Featuring: World Table Tennis Champions Robert Ashley, U.S. Champ and Steve Dodgen Norwegian Champ, Sword Balaricirty Star: Vind Vertitd Rope Twirlers: Carmel Kim Gowen LETHBRIDGE SPORTSPLEX SUNDAY, JAN. 12th, P.M.

(The OPEC stands for the mainly-Arab Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries. Canada is not an OPEC member.) Holton said a tax on Cana- dian oil in transit through the U.S., as proposed by Brock and his colleagues, is "unlike- ly to provide the necessary framework for obtaining the co-operation of Canada in dealing with the supply problems which will arise in this process. "Rather, imposition of a transit tax could well in- duce Canada to raise its ex- port tax by an equal amount, or to accelerate the curtail- ment of crude oil exports. Such a result would leave us not better off, and might well worsen our position." Releasing a copy of Holton's the state department had declined to make said the letter is "unsatisfactory" and accused the department of "indecisive leadership." The Canadian export tax makes Canadian oil the most expensive used in the U.S., Brock said. And the proposed phase-out of exports "poses even more serious problems for the American consumer." From Holton's letter, it is clear that the department in- tends only to negotiate the de- tails of the phase-out, Brock wrote to Kissinger. "As we pointed out in our (earlier) letter to you, the Ca- nadian government has in the past repeatedly assured the United Stales that it could al- ways depend on Canada for oil. "That the reversal of this long-standing policy should be accepted without vigorous protest and forceful action is wholly unsatisfactory." An aide to Brock said the senator is prepared to press forward with legislation re- quiring the U.S. either to tax or to curtail Canadian oil that transits American territory, but would prefer to see the matter settled diplomatically. Prime Minister Trudeau has said he does hot take seriously the threat of a tax or interruption of such Canadian shipments. Nearly half of Canadian oil consumption crosses U.S. part through a pipeline from Western Canada to On- tario that passes through the Midwestern States. Canadian economy shows soft spots By THE CANADIAN PRESS More layoffs and production cuts Wednesday, gave support to increasing signs of weakness in the Canadian economy. The Bank of Montreal, in a January business review, warned that recent poor per- formances of some prime in- dicators has dimmed hopes for a healthy economy this year. The bank referred to these indicators: A drop in retail sales last fall, especially in household durables and automobiles; continued slow- down in housing starts; a depressed trade balance; and high inflation. In Winnipeg, John C. Gilmer, president of CP Air, said unless there is a reversal in economic trends, 1975 will not be a good year. He said there might be layoffs by CP Air, some cuts in customer service and higher fares. Other economic de- velopments Wednesday: Canada Ltd. announced that about 200 hourly and salary employees will be laid off when the major appliance division closes Feb. 24-28. Thirty workers will be laid off indefinitely. The company blamed a sales drop because Sing Sing prison sold WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) Sing Sing, the prison that housed such notables as John Dillinger, Al Capone and Joe Valachi, will soon be a sewage treatment plant. Westchester County an- nounced yesterday that four communities will purchase five acres of the prison, known officially as New York Correctional. Facility at Ossining. FARM WORTH The average Canadian farm included worth of land and buildings, worth of implements and machinery and worth of livestock and poultry when the 1971 cen- sus was taken. of a slump in housing starts. drop in housing con- struction also hit the Alberta lumber industry where only one in three people normally employed by the industry are working. Arden Rytz, general manager of the Alberta Forest Products Association, said that instead of to 000 people employed in the forests and mills, only about are working. Some of the larger timber companies have reduced or closed operations and some smaller operators had not even started work. B. Wilber, president of the Maritime Lumber Bureau, said the housing slump and loss of markets in the United States and Britain is not ex- pected to start hurting the Nova Scotia lumber industry until spring. Unlike many other provinces, he said, employment is stable and, if anything, there is a shortage of woods workers. M. Gordon, mine man- ager of the Central Canada Potash mine, said in Saska- toon that an million expan- sion program has been suspended indefinitely because of Saskatchewan's poor investment climate. Inc. announced it is reducing the price of its copper products sold in the .United States and Canada, following similar reductions by Noranda Mines Ltd., Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Co.
