It was taken by Doug Griffin of Toronto Star and was judged best among more than spat news and feature pictuers taken by Can- adian daily newspapers and CP staff photographers and distributed by CP in 1971. The Lord Beaverbrook book Highlight of season LONDON (CP) After years of research and writing, a vast new volume about Ca- nadian-born Lord Beaver- brook is finally due for publi- cation this year and should bo a highlight of the book season. The book, by historian A. J. P. Taylor, will run to about 700 pages and has been in the nuking since shortly after Beaverbrook's death in 1964. It will give a detailed ac- count of the late publisher's early years in the Maritime provinces and Montreal, when as a high-pressure financial organizer he tegan amassing the fortune he later used to develop a mass-circulation newspaper empire in Britain. Taylor, a 65-year-old author of books on such subjects as 19th-century European history and the origins of the Second World War, was an admirer of Beaverbrook during the publisher's lifetime and re- mains equally sympathetic to his subject now that the big book with its 25. pages of illus- trations is finished. But he has shown consider- able scholarly detachment in evaluating Beaverbrook's own account of his early years in Canada. And he has brought to bear on the free-wheeling, contro- versial publisher the same techniques of character analy- sis as were used in a Taylor biography of Bismarck some years ago. RESEMBLED BISMARCK Taylor says born William Maxwell Altken at Maple, Ont., in sembled the legendary chan- cellor of the 19th-century Ger- man empire in having an ex- tremely nervous temperament concealed behind a flamboy- ant public front. The historian concedes that "the Beaver" may at times have been overbearing, mis- chievous and irresponsible in the career he pursued as jourr nalistic impresario and politi- cal long-maker. But Taylor denies any suggestion that Beaverbrook was an evil men. Conceding that the publish- er's campaign for Empire free trade before the Second World War was wrong- headed, the historian argues that other causes backed by the Beaver were worthy and his Keynes- stj'le call for big spending as a cure for the Depression of the 1930s. T lie biography, to be called Beaverbrook, will be pub- lished in July by Hamish Hamilton of London. This is one of the companies ownec by another Canadian-bom newspaper magnate, Lore Thomson of Fleet. SHEDS BUSINESS LIGHT Of special interest to Cana- dians will be Taylor's analysis of Beaverbrook's role in the business boom which shaped Canada during the first dec ade of the 20th century. In recent years, Alan Taylor has turned from academic work at Oxford University and frequent television ap- pearances to writing regularly for such Beaverbrook papers as The Sunday Express. He also has been honorary director of the Beaverbrook li- brary, a rich repository of ar- chives which include the pub- lisher's own life documents and much material about the late prime minister David Lloyd George. But Taylor says his book is not an authorized or a com- missioned biography. For its part, Hamish ton says Taylor has modelled himself on Beaverbrook's be- lief that a biography should print all the good and all the bad about its subject.

Air strike hits Jasper conference OTTAWA (CP) A twfrday federal-provincial conference of finance ministers scheduled for Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 in Jasper, Alia., has been postponed be- cause of the continuing strike of air traffic controllers, the fi- nance department said today.

WWtmfay, Jmwy M, TM UTHWBOOI HNAIB It Vallieres: no deal made with police MONTREAL (CP) Pierre Vallieres slid Tuesday he too not bargained with the Quebec justice department before he gave himself up to police. Interviewed on a local televi- sion public affain program, the 33-yecr-old theoretician of the Front de Liberation du Quebec said his lawyer, Jacques Belle- mare, made "no agreement, no deal, no promises" with any justice department officials. "We didn't know what would occur when I gave myself up to Vallieres said. Vallieres went into hiding last September before having a trial date set on charges of Mditious conspiracy and counselling to kidnap and murder. He surren- dered to police Monday night and appeared in court Tuesday, where he was granted bail pending setting March 6 of a trial date on the counselling charge. While still in hiding, Vallieres underwent what he called "radi- cal self-critidsm" and produced a 27-page document repudiating terrorist violence and calling for FLQ support of the Parti Queoe- cois. He said in the TV interview he did not think the PQ would object to him "as a rank-and- file member." Vallieres described his switch to PQ allegiance as "a purely political choice, made after an analysis of the objective situa- tion." STAND COULD CHANGE That position, be added, could change, depending on the "fed- eral response" to those seeking an independent Quebec. "It's a purely strategic deci- sion forced by existing condi- tion! in Quebec, which are pre-revoliiuiontry ind not revolutionary." He said that akhotujh nil strategy may hive changed, his objective of an independent state Cor Quebec remained. Vallierea spoke entirely in French during the interview and his answers were translated and repeated for the viewing audi- ence. Asked why he ippeared on the CBC English-language program, he replied: "The English media asked me first."
