But the changes fall far short of provincial status for either territory. Both wilt re' main dominated by their federally-appointed com-missiotiers. During a three-day visit to the N.W.T. capital of Yellowknife which ended Saturday, Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien appeared to gain su^wrt of the N.W.T. council for amendments he will propose to the urliamen-tary act which establishes the territorial government. Mr. Chretien wants to make the N.W.T. council a fully-elected one. I» now consists of 10 elected and four appointed members.    - Under Mr. Chretien’s proposals, still 14> be approved by cabinet, council membership will remain at 14 but all members will have to be elect^. In a Yellowknife speech over the weekend, the minister noted that “not all council members” favor doing away with appointed members who bring their special talents to council debates. "While there is room for argument. a fully-elected council would be a significant step in the development of government in the territories,” Mr. Chretien said. He also strongly indicated he will establish an executive committee within council which would consist of Commissioner Stuart Hodgson and at least two elected council members. The elected members, in addition to helping set budget priorities ^nd frame policy, would each be in char^ge of a territorial department. “I want to stress bow important such an executive might be for the further evolution of respcHisihle and responsive government in the Northwest Territories,” Mr. Chretien declared. In the Yukon Mr. Chretien wants to increase the number of people on the already fully-electra council. He Is eX' pected to expand the present seven-member council to 11. RETAINS VETO Yukon already has an executive committee consisting of Commissioner James Smith, his two assistant commissioners and two elected council members. Under the changes prqwsed by Mr. Chretien, the Yukon executive would be expanded to seven by adding two more elected members would be in charge of a territorial department.

[Mrectors of the Funeral Ser-▼t«.    0«7*2 Pacific Coast clean-up starts By The ASSOCIATED PRESS Rain storms and wind that raked the Northwest and Pacific Coast areas of the United States during the week have begun subsiding, leaving thousands of flood victims the tasks of cleaning up and counting losses. Flood damage in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho and western Montana has been estimated at more than f 100 million. The weather has been blamed for at least 16 deaths. Some areas still faced rising waters. Oregon’s Tualatin River went over its banks Friday, forcing 300 persons to leave their homes southwest of Portland. Lt.-Gov. Ed Reinecke proclaimed a state of emergency Friday in three more counties in northern California, and asked President Nixon to declare all seven counties a disaster area, Reinecke said flood, wind and storm damage in the seven-coun^ area totalled f35 million. In Oregon, flood damage was estimated at f43 million in nine counties. But Harvey Latham, head of emergency services, said the total probably will reach |70 million in 15 or 20 counties. Gov. Tom McCall asked Nixon for federal flood relief. In Idaho, an estimated 700 families fled their homes when the Coeur d’Alene River jumped its banks earlier in the week and became a mile-wide lake.    . The biggest problem in Washington state is in the small town of Klickitat, which was all but cut off from highway access late Friday. HellsAngeU ‘outlaw use of hard drugs’ SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -The Hells Angels have launched an advertising campaign against the use of hard drugs saying they have renounced dope and want to set others straight, too. The motorcycle gang has leased three billboards in the San Jose area. The ads are emblazoned with a skull and crossbones over a hypodermic needle. Each carries the admonition: “No Hope with Dope." Deaths By THE CANADIAN PRESS Montreal —Paul Des marteaux, 68, local actor best known for his portrayal of Cure Labelle in the long-running French-language television series Belles histoires des pays d’en haut, of a heart ailment. Toronto—John Giordmaine, 75, one of Canada’s most celebrated magicians, who performed for such notables as Eleanor Roosevelt, former prime minister MacKenzie King and Ed Sullivan. FAMOUS FABRIC St. Leonard, N.B., is famous for its beautiful Tissus Mada-wa^ (Madawaska Fabric), oonsidered the best of it» kind in North America, Biker Phil Cross said the club is also printing anti-drug brochures and making its members available for speeches to high school and college groups. Police, however, remain skepfical. "They have to do more than put up billboards to prove anything to me,” said one officer. "All I go by is their past experiences, and I doubt thiy’re about to change,” Cross said the Angels don’t consider marijuana, barbiturates or amphetamines as "hard stuff.” But, "if an Angel sticks a needle in his arm one time, he’s out,” Cross said in an interview Sunday. “If he snorts (cocaine), he’s out. There’s no rehabilitation program, nothing, Just out. Period.” Why has the gang given up dope? “The guys couldn’t function properly, couldn’t be dependable members, didn’t sliow up for meetings, forgot to pay dues," Cross said. "You couldn’t rely,on them for nothing. They weren't outlaws any more, ’fliey were dope ad-, diets," An advertising firm ha« given the Angels discount public service rates of |iO a board, plus $180 for printing. But Cross rejects the nice-guy image. “We’re not trying to he a bunch of nice gvys, because we’re' not.” SUDBURY (CP) - An inquest into 23 deaths in Sudbury General Hospital, which has been zig-zagging on a puzzlii^; course for a week, will start off Monday under a “nosleviations” edict from the presiding coroner. Dr. Ross Bennett, deputy supervising coroner for Ontario, handed down the word late Friday after five days of evidence which has been skipping back and forth between medical and mechanical topics without touching on several basic questions before the inquiry. The inquest has not yet received firm evidence of the cause oi death of any of the victims and has been given only second-hand information that one of them, six-year-old Catherine Dominic, died from getting a lethal dose of anesthetic out of an oxygen line in a new wing of the lital last Sept. 7. unanswered questions include; —In what part of the hospitiil, and when, were the other 22 persons treated? —When was the special-procedures room in which the girl died placed in operation and were any other persons treated in it? There have been suggestions that there may have been no others. —When was the gas supply hooked up to this room. —What was the gas piping setup earlier in other areas of the new wing where apparently the other 22 victims were treated. MAIN POINT UNTOUCHED "We haven’t heard a single thing about how the pipes were on Sept, 7, that's the critical point,” Sudbury lawyer Elmer Sopha, representing seven of the dead, said after Friday’s hearing. Coroner Bennett has said that either a “crossover or a crossconnection” in oxygen and nitrous oxide lines led to the Dominic girl’s death, but it has not been made clear whether this error carried wrongly-labelled gases into other parts of the wing. Lawyers for various interests who had been trying to scratch out information thi'ough the week unloaded their frustrations near the close of Friday’s session in demands that the inquiry pursue a stralghter course. Peter Newcombe of Ottawa, representing nine hospital doctors, said he feels like a man who came to play football and after the first quarter was switched to hockey and later to basketball. Douglas Phibbs of Toronto, appearing for the architects. suggested that the hearing with scores of witnesses called and a battery of lawyers and experts in attendance was costing between $150,000 and $200,000 a day, “a lot of money for what I consider a nil result so far.” Dr. Dennett said he considered Mr. Phibb’s cost estimate grossly exaggerated. CRITICIZE CROWN Mr. Sopha, a former Liberal member of the Ontario legislature for Sudbury, joined in with an attack on Sudbury Crown Attorney John Takach, who is directing the evidence, for what Mr. Sopha called keeping the lawyers in the dark and trying to prevent them from getting information. Mr, Takach in turn blamed long cross-examination of his witnesses by the other counsel for stringing out the i^uiry, which the coroner said now seems to have fallen two days behind its original schedule of three weeks. However, Mr. Tackach held out the hope that he will get to the key construction and engineering evidence dealing with installation of the gas supply lines early next week. About 150 subpoenas were issued for witnesses but Crown officials said Friday many of those will not be called to testify if their evidence would be duplication. The number of called witnesses jumped during the week when the inquiry unexpectedly learned that 18 persons had been treated with oxygen without apparent ill effects in the wing during the May-to-September period on which the inquest has focused. Kraft recalls dinners CHICAGO (AP) - Kraft Foods says it has recalled 2.2 million pack»es of Kraft Macaroni and (%eese Dinners which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says may contain food-poisoning bacteria. Kraft says the 7*/4-ounce packages carry the identification number 9-30-74c. Other numbers mentioned in the FDA’s recall order have not been distributed, the company said. The dinners that were distributed have tMCQ traced to portions of Ariz(»ta, Califor> nia. Washington, Oregon, Idaho, North Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The cheese component of the dinners was manufactured at Kraft Foods in Springfield, Mo., and packed and shipped in Champaign, III. The FDA said some of the dinners may be contaminated with salmonella bacteria, a common and seldom-fatal source of food poisoning. It placed the recall in a category in which "the consequences may be immediate or long-range and possibly or potentially life-threatening or hazardous to health.” bargos and production cuts because of the disengagement Sact U.S. State Secretary terny Kissinger. negotiated between Egypt and Israel. Skepticism about the report was heightened by the fact that the Iraqi News Agency is owned by the Iraqi government, and that government refused to join in the restrictions on oil shipments the other Arab oil countries ordered during the October Arab-Israeli war. The Arab world, a daily digest of Middle East news published in Beirut, reported today that Saudi Arabia's oil minister. Sheik Ahmed Zaki Yamani, was called home from a tour of oil-consuming countries for “urgent consultations on whether the U.S.-sponsored military disengagement agreement between Egypt and Israel warrants a reconsideration of the oil embargo.” Sadat during the weekend paid quick visits to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Abu Dhabi, all of them leading oil producers. There was speculation that, in appreciation for Kissinger’s negotiations, he was urging a resumption of oil shipments to the United States. Refugee reaction forecast ALLISTON, Ont. (CF) -Immigration Minister Robert Andras says Canadian politics are shifting to the right and he expects there will be “hell to pay” over the decision to admit Chilean refugees into Canada. Mr. Andras made the comment in a weekend speech here to the founding convention of the Ontario New Liberals.    . The immigration minister said he met 50 Chilean refugees in Toronto and found most of them to be young and bright. CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Garglll Grain Canada Ltd.
