E3B, 4X1 talked at length into CBC microphones about Mr. King's spiritualism, his affection for his dog and his obsession with the hands of clocks. Without the publication of Mr. King's diaries which dis- close far more of this than most Canadians had expected, Mr. Diefenbaker said some of his versions might have been laughed at. "They would not have be- lieved he says. "I am not going to tell you everything I said to the CBC, but it will all be there when it is televised." The television series, a year or so away; will form a part of Mr. Diefenbaker's memoirs. "Oh, I know a lot of people were surprised at the things King put in his diary, but noth- ing surprised me whatsoever. I knew most of these things." Mr. Diefenbaker had a long association with the former Liberal prime minister, even before he ran against him in Prince Albert in 1926. Mr. Die- fenbaker's father was one of young King's first school teachers "and father always said that even, as a little boy King lived in a ghost world." "Father would say 'he's in communication.'" Mr. Diefenbaker remembers the day that Paris fell to the Germans and he and several other MPs entered Mr. King's small centre block office to talk with the Liberal prime minister. "It was about 10 a.m. and we went into a small room off the office where there was a built-in bed. King was in some kind of night garb and he ex- plained he had been up until 2 a.m. working on 'his diaries. "We asked whether the radio reports were true that Paris had fallen to the Ger- mans. King didn't know, but in a few minutes a secretary confirmed the news. "King went over to the clock in front of the fireplace and studied it. At exactly when the two hands formed a straight line, he ran his hand along the line, paused to study it again and said "Diefenbaker, we're not going to lose this can't lose now." "We all knew his relationship with the clock Native, jail problem topic of coming meet was more than the telling of time." From deep within his files, Mr. Diefenbaker also produc- ed 1931 notes of a conversation with Mr. King who told him how his dog understood every word. "He could tell you about conversations he has over- Mr. King was reported to have said. "I also remember him tell- ing me that 'Gladstone fully agrees with the stands I have recalls Mr. Diefen- baker. knew he was talking about extra-terresterial communications." He says he wasn't the only MP aware of the extent of Mr. King's reliance on spiritualism. "I know of two Liberal cabinet ministers who also knew all about it. I've heard them say '1 wonder who he's (Mr. King) been talking with today." And Mr. Diefenbaker says his father knew a great deal about how Mr. King operated, because the former student remained in close touch with the elder Diefenbaker, who died in 1944. "Even when he was prime minister he in- sisted that father call him 'Willie.'" What was Mr. King like as a political opponent? "Well, you could never trap him. If you began to read something he said in hopes of trapping him, King would say 'read on.' He knew that a few paragraphs later he would be reversing himself."

By ANDRE OUIMET Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Why do nearly five per cent of Canada's population, native people, make up about 65 per cent of Canada's jail population? An attempt to get an answer to that "urgent and complex" question will be made when federal, provincial and native people representatives meet for a "national conference on native people and the Criminal justice system" in Edmonton next month. The prison population dis- proportion was the first item on a list of grievances presented by a group of native people to newsmen when they Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) Supervisory Positions in Atlantic Richf ield's new Offshore NGL facility in Indonesia Atlantic Richfield has two exceptional supervisory opportunities in its advanced Natural Gas Liquids facility now under construction in Indonesia.

That occupation still contin- ues-so quietly that few peo- ple in Ottawa are aware that it is still government officials privately express the hope that the Edmonton conference will be a first step in settling some of the grievances which led to the take-over. Concern was first put on record at the 1973 federal-pro- vincial solicitor-general conference here and a special joint committee was set up to organise a three-day meeting during .which native people and officials would sit in equal numbers and attempt to get at the root of the matter. It was decided that Ed- monton in the depths of winter would minimize the possibili- ty of disruptions by dissident groups of angry native people so the conference was set for Feb. 3-5. Basic goal was to "bring to- gether representatives of native people and governments to identify problems, often rooted in cultural differences and socio- economic conditions and to develop approaches to solu- a release from the solicitor-general's office stated. Translated into practical terms, an official of the department said, this would first involve a look at the effectiveness of the parole system as applied to native people. "For example, a committee will study the quality and availability of probation supervision" for native people-are they being kept in jail because parole is im- possible, or are they breaking parole because it is badly supervised. Discrimination in the pre- sent criminal law will be closely examined as'well as the availability of legal ser- vices to native people. Alcohol addiction, often cited as the main problem in the matter, will be looked at, despite the fact that some of- ficials believe it is a symptom rather than the cause of social problems. Police standards in native community and the input of native also will be dis- cussed as well as the complex problem of court administra- tion in relation to native com- munities and individuals. Plague of mice infest Rhodesian grain fields SALISBURY, Rhodesia (CP) Millions of mice have invaded Rhodesia's high-yield maize land about 123 miles northwest of Salisbury and started a conservation con- troversy. Farmers have been laying poison to combat the mice, which have attacked the newly germinated plants and dug up the newly planted seed. As one farmer said: "The 'mice dug up the seed almost as fast as it was planted." But the department of na- tional parks and wildlife man- agement said the laying of poison was the worst thing that could happen. "There is absolutely no point in using a spokesman said. "It only makes matters worse. "The best thing farmers can do is nothing. The plague will destroy itself." Faced with the plague farm- ers have been spreading poison mixed in ground-up corn around the borders of their fields. The result has been that mice predators have been killed. "Before this operation is over some areas will have lost their snakes, certain large lizards, all birds of prey including the owls, particular- ly the barn owl, the small cats and the spokesman said. "The tragedy is that popu- lation explosions like this at- tract predators from neighboring land so that farmers who Jiave not used poison may also lose their predators." With the loss of the normal predation the huge numbers of mice will last longer. Dr. Reay Smithers, the country's leading expert on rodents, said fluctuation in mouse and rat population is normal. Their numbers increase as food becomes more available and they decrease as the food supplies drop off. Unusually favorable condi- tions bring on a plague and if the rodents are left alone it's followed by a sudden slump to below the usual population level. Then numbers recover slowly. Mice in massive numbers show disturbed patterns of be- havior. They eat each other and show other signs of stress which act as a built-in check. Poisoning helps ease the pressure and makes the available food last longer than it would if no poison was laid. A government spokesman said last year's excellent- rainy season produced a good grain Crop but also delayed its harvesting. The result was food was more plentiful for the mice and available for longer than usual. This probably accounted for the plague. It's thought that two species of mice are involved, the striped field mouse and the multimammate. The latter has a litter of 24 and doubles its population in weeks.
