The marchers were on their way to the West End headquarters of the Post Office and on to a mass meeting at Hyde Park. Postal strikers union asks aid LONDON (AP) - A threat of foriegn support for striking British postal workers grew today In response to an appeal for foreign unions to cut communication links with Britain. The day-old walkout-the first In the history of the British post office-appeared headed into a lengthy stalemate with the cabinet's decision not to intervene. All mail and cable services were halted, but almost 90 per cent of the country's telephones continued working on automatic systems. In Canada, Canadian Overseas Telecommunications Corp. suspended its telegraph services between Canada and ^ Britain and Ireland because of the Your NEW Authorized Dealer for . . . JEEP TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd St. S. Phone 327-1418 strike, and a similar suspension of mail services was > implemented by the Canadian post office. In Brussels, the general secretary of the Post, Telephone and Telegraph International, Stefan Nedzynski, said he bad asked unions everywhere to support the walkout. The PTTI represents about 2.5 million workers in 82 countries. Tom Jackson, general secretary of the 230,000-member Union of Postal Workers asked the PTTI on Wednesday night urge unions in other countries to "cut Britain off."

Union representatives in the United States and Japan questioned the legality of a union ban on British communications. is imported. New Democrat Leader T. C. Douglas said in the Commons that price increases of at least two cents a gallon are coming. Resources Minister J. J. Greene said that what the price increase will be is not certain. There was no certainty that extending the pipeline would be more economical for easterners. "If it is, I am certain the private sector will build one," Mr. Greene said. Mr. Greene also told Mr. Douglas that no commitments have been made on the pipeline or security in discussions with the U.S. Mr. Douglas had referred to President Nixon's comment that Canada would have to satisfy U.S. security arrangements before the U.S. would grant free access of Canadian oil to the U.S. market. Mr. Greene said that Canadian and U.S. views of security might differ. The decision on the security of Canadian oil arrangements would not be made by Americans for Canadians. WANTS INFORMATION Mr. Douglas asked that a House committee be given government data to allow MPs to decide whether a pipeline extension to the east is feasible. Mr. Greene said the government has "no comprehensive survey" on the feasibility of pipeline extension. Eldon Woolliams (PC-Calgary North) asked whether there is any economic study by the government to determine the value of a pipeline to Montreal. Mr. Greene said there isn't. Anyone who wished to buUd a pipeline could present his proposal to the National Energy Board, which would study ,it, then make a recommendation to government. Mr. Woolliams asked how the government can set out economic facts on pipeline feasibility if it has no study on which to base the facts. The question was ruled out of order as argumentative. George Hees (PC-Prince Edward-Hastings) asked that Mr. Greene and the chairman of the National Energy Board appear before a House committee to answer questions. Mr. Greene said an opportunity would arise when the board estimates come before committee. He said it isn't up to the government to decide when it is economic to build a pipeline. It was up to private industry. PAYS WITH LIFE BUENOS AIRES (Reuter) -A man trying to avoid paying his taxi fare paid for it with his life Wednesday.

Sketches by Ian Christie of the Calgary Herald. EDMONTON (CP) - Mayor Des Newman of Whitby, Ont. said Wednesday night that senior governments are making money from public housing projects. The mayor told an executive meeting of the Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities that long - term mortgages made by the governments to municipalities for public housing sometimes produce a profit for the governments. The mayor said he believes there have been instances in Anti-pollution group request delay in government project EDMONTON (CP)-An antipollution group called Save Tomorrow Oppose Pollution has asked the Alberta government to interrupt its Prairie Rivers Improvem e n t, Management Teachers to discuss wage offer CALGARY (CP) - A two-year contract that will cost an additional $1.47 million has been agreed to tentatively by the Calgary Separate School Board and its 973 teachers. Spokesmen for both sides announced Wednesday night the contract calls for an increase of 6.69 per cent this year and 6.57 per cent in 1972. The spokesmen said the teachers will discuss the vote on the draft agreement Jan. 27 and if ratified, it will be presented to the board Feb. 3. This year, salaries would range from $5,150 to $14,125 depending on training and experience. The 1972 range would be $5,400 to $15,025.

Grant MacEwan of Alberta returned to his native province Wednesday and told the Saskatchewan Livestock Association stories of the pioneers. Mr. MacEwan, a former active member pf the association, said stockmen have always been practical people. "They're the bread and butter type of people, the type of people who have always been able to stop for a moment and laugh at themselves." He told of the longest sheep drive in Canada that started in 1933, a parched year on the prairies, when 300 head were driven westward to find grass. The man wintered near Provost, Alta., and the following summer and got t h r o u gh Crowsnest Pass of the Rockies to Vernon, B.C. Supermarkets close Mondays TORONTO (CP) - Five Lob-laws supermarkets In Toronto will close Mondays as an economy measure, the company said here.

MILLIONS OF TRUCKS There are more than three million trucks on less than three million farms in the United States. and evaluation project until the ] ecological implications have been seriously studied. Stephen Tapper, a spokesman for the group, said Wednesday the government is rushing into the project without proper planning. Mr. Tapper said a shortage of government material explaining the project proves too little thought has been given to its ecological and other effects upon the water, agricultural recreation systems in the province. He said the government should hold open hearings on the project with ecologists, wildlife experts and people without a vested interest. Responding to the S.T.O.P. request, an agriculture department spokesman said the anti- pollution group doesn't understand what P.R.I.M.E. is all about. A study of possible methods to improve distribution of water in the province, the spokesman said P.R.I.M.E. "is an evaluation project and no part of what it conceives is under active consideration." "We are simply throwing the ideas about. There will certainly be full consideration given to the ecological implications in due course." The lack of material on studies done so far as only an indication that they were still in the earliest initial stages of evaluation. The spokesman said public hearings will be held on the issues involved when the time comes. Train crash wreckage is cleared CROWSNEST - The CP Rail track running through the Crowsnest Pass was reopened Wedn e s d a y afternoon, as cleanup crews completed the job of clearing wreckage from the two - freight collision 30 hours earlier. A 94 - car eastbound freight collided with an eight - car empty about four miles west of the Alberta  British Columbia border, killing J. P. Bohan, 44, of Cranbrook, B.C., engineer of the 94 - car train. L. D. Swinarton, 22, of Cranbrook, a crewman in the caboose of the smaller train suffered a concussion and his condition is still listed as serious. Allan MacDonald, 49, a conductor, and Gary Marlow, 23, both of Cranbrook, were in hospital in good condition. Swinarton and MacDonald have been transferred to the Cranbrook General Hospital, and Marlow remains in hospital at Natal, B.C. Glass officials seek talks on non-returnable bottles CALGARY (CP) - Non-returnable bottles are "being used as a scapegoat for a problem far more severe than broken glass,".says Justice Battle of Toronto, a member of the Glass Container Council of Canada. Mr, Battle and Pat Levelle of Montreal, another member of the council which represents Canadian bottle manufacturers, are visiting Alberta in an attempt to salvage an economic -future for the non-returnable bottle in the province. They were attempting to arrange a meeting in Edmonton with Alberta officials, but neither man was optimistic they could convince the government to scrap proposed legislation dealing with non - returnable containers. Their contention is that oub-lic education is the only logical solution to any problem evolved from litter. Glass containers account for less than three per cent of all litter, they said, and the disposable bottle itself less than one per cent. "It is therefore illogical to introduce legislation to dispose of one per cent of a cause," Mr, Levelle said. "If you accept this theory then you must also consider legislation banning newspapers, old tires and perhaps even garbage itself." Their fight on behalf of non-returnable , bottles began following British Columbia's introduction of the Provincial Litter Act. The B.C. Act makes it mandatory for manufacturers and retailers to give a minimum refund of two cents on drink containers of glass, metal and plastic. Alberta is considering similar action.

He asked for a thorough study of the effects of long* term loans to municipalities. The study would include Bn examination of the actual costs of such loans and, in cases where housing units are sold, the psychological effects on the homeowners. "Nobody is going to take care of their property if they have such a long - term mortgage that they are never really going to own their home." The federation also agreed to conduct a Canada - wide survey of its members to find out whether programs to alleviate unemployment are really work* Ing. The federation's executive approved the survey after Mayor Sid Buckwold of Saskatoon expressed concern about unemployment. The Mayor, chairman of the federation's finance committee, said all mayors in Canada will be approched because they, are the people who usually know what projects are planned and what the employment situation is in their areas. Mayor Buckwold the information gathered will be passed on to the federal government. Paid off debt NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - It took more than three years, but' a Niagara Falls restaurant owner has been paid for a meal eaten in 1967 by Russian Premier Aleksei Kosygin. The state department recently paid the bill. It seems Kosygin and state department officials ate lunch at John's Flaming Hearth Restaurant and, thinking arrangements had been handled, walked out without paying.
