Mr. Choquette, often shouting to be beard over the jeers of hecklers at Sir George Williams University last night, told about 1,000 students at a meet- James (Jasper) Cross, the British envoy held for 60 days last autumn by terrorist kidnappers in Quebec, is being given a special sum of money by the government in recognition of his ordeal and of the way he faced up to it. Unofficial estimates of the sum published in London range from $25,000 to $50,000. The foreign office itself has declined to comment. Cross, senior British trade commissioner in Montreal when he was kidnapped there Oct. 5 has been on holiday in Switzerland following his release by the Front de Liberation du Quebec. He was made a Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George in the Queen's New Year honors list.  �  George C. Wallace has become governor of Alabama again with a new outcry against federal "oppression" and a call for a massive "people power" -ballot - box protest to save the United States. "Then, and only then, he said in an inaugural address, "will the politicians answer the voice of the people." Wallace, 51, was sworn in for a second term with his 32-year-old bride of two weeks, Cornelia, at his side. In the November election Wallace defeated Albert Brewer who had become governor in 1968 when Wallace's wife Lurleen died of cancer white governor.   * The widow of astronaut Virgil M. (Gas) Grissom filed suit Monday for $10 million against North American Rockwell Co., a National Aeronautics and Space Administration contra c t o r, charging it with negligence in the spacecraft fire that killed her husband and two other astronauts in 1967. Lawyers representing Betty Grissom, who lives in Houston, Tex., filed suit in Brevard big that persons arrested under terms of the act have been allowed to file complaints with the Quebec ombudsman. "We have accepted the principle of indemnity or reparation to these persons where they have been arrested without reasonable grounds," he said. "The same applies to persons whose domicile has been subject to search without warrant and where damages have been caused." The ombudsman is empowered to investigate situations where individual citizens appear to have been mistreated by the state and to demand action from the government if there is evidence to back up complaints. The justice minister's com: ments came during' a question period while about 50 persons in the crowd chanted "death to fascism" and "fascists have no right to speak." Mr. Choquette said his government acted in a "fair and restrained manner" during the crisis that followed the abduction of British envoy James Cross and the kidnap-murder of Quebec's former labor minister, Pierre Laporte. He said the government did not "succumb to totalitarian methods." Stanfield fields questions in French on air program JAMES CROSS ...

No. 4si MONTREAL (CP) - Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield, fielded questions in French during a 90-minute open line morning radio program before visiting the Canada manpower centre in downtown Montreal today for face-to-face chats with unemployed persons. Mr. Stanfield is on the eastern leg of a cross-country tour to study unemployment problems. He was in Western Canada last week and heads for Halifax Wednesday. After a private meeting with Raymond Poirier, regional manager of the manpower centre, the Opposition leader talked in the main lobby with a few persons seeking jobs. Arnobie Roberio, 22-year-old bachelor from Brazil who has been in Canada for a year, said he is looking for work and is confident he will eventually get a job suitable to his accounting qualifications. TAKING COURSES Marcel Marsan, 42-year-old former janitor unemployed for the last two years, said he was taking extra courses to improve his qualification. Asked by Mr. Stanfield what the jobless are thinking about the unemployment situation, Mr. Marsan replied: "They're always talking about (Quebec Premier Robert) Bour-assa's 100,000 jobs." This was a reference to Pre- mier Bourassa's election campaign promise last April to create 100,000 jobs in Quebec this year. In the morning open-line show on radio station CKVL, Mr. Stanfield described unemployment in Canada as a "national disaster," a problem that had to be solved by all Canadians in general and the federal government in particular. "1 want to encourage all Canadians to increase the pressure on the federal government to attack this tragic problem, which must be fought now," he said.
