The former prime minister called lax the existing penalty for such offences, which is a maximum five- year sentence. Solicitor-General Warren Allmand in the'Commons exchange' said he believes personally that gun laws should be tightened and a review is under way by government officials. No decisions had been made, however. He proi.iised to pass Mr. Diefenbaker's suggestion on to those in charge of the review. Mr. Diefenbaker Albert) said a change is needed because of the crime by "thugs who are terrorizing all parts of Canada." Outside the House, Mr. Diefenbaker said criminals have declared war on the public and have set off "an avalanche of crime." He said the current five-year maximum is "no but his proposal, which would allow no reduction of term because of good behavior, would have tremendous deterrent effect. Mr. Allmand suggested that the criminal element is not the main concern. "Two-thirds of our murders are committed by friends, acquaintances or members of the same he told reporters. He said groups that oppose gun-control proposals do not understand; the government did not want to stop people from hunting or from shooting for sport. It was concerned that persons with criminal records or a history of mental trouble had relatively easy access to guns. He said the solution would be registration of all guns, a check of all applicants for permits and a possi- ble test of the applicant's ability to use firearms safely. Strip search foolish TORONTO wholesale strip search of female patrons of a Fort Erie, Ont., motor hotel during a drug raid by members of the Niagara regional police last May was "foolish and un-: necessary" says a report released Monday by a royal commissioner investigating the raid. "I am satisfied that there was not a shred of evidence to support a suspicion that any of the female patrons had concealed heroin or any like substance on their person prior to the Judge John Pringle of Norfolk Coun- ty said in his report. Solicitor-General George Kerr appointed Judge Pringle a one-man royal commission into the incident after a public outcry against police methods used in the raid at the Land- mark Motor Hotel in Fort Erie last May. The judge conducted an 11- day hearing into the raid last August and his report was ta- bled in the legislature Monday by Mr. Kerr. Evidence during the inquiry was that more than 100 patrons were searched by Niagara regional police and that 38 women customers were forced to strip and sub- mit to an examination by police women as they search- ed for marijuana and heroin. Judge Pringle recommend- ed among other things that the intelligence unit of the Niagara poli.'e be "either disbanded or integrated more fully into the existing command structure." He also recommended that persons found in a place other than a dwelling house "where there is no reasonable cause to believe that they are in possession of a narcotic or anything incidental to posses- sion of a narcotic by themselves or others, should not be subject to any search when the only basis for the search is their legitimate presence in such a place." Indian claims offer near OTTAWA (CP) Indian Af- fairs Minister Judd Buchanan confirmed reports Monday that the federal government is prepared to make an offer to settle Indian claims in the Yukon. He said in an interview that the offer, to be made within a month, will follow along the terms accepted by Indians in James cash plus hunting and fishing rights. "But there will be regional differences in the Yukon the minister said. Although the -government agreed almost two years ago to negotiate a settlement with Yukon Indians, progress towards a settlement has been slow. Late last year the two nego- tiating teams were still bogg- ed down on the first point: Who would be eligible to share in any settlement? Mr. Buchanan said the slow progress was a prime reason that he decided to make a firm offer. Life saved TOKYO (AP) A Chinese soldier who was unconscious for 107 days after falling near- ly 200 feet down a rocky ledge was saved by a combination of brain surgery, herbal medicines and acupuncture, China's official Hsinhua news agency reported. "I guess I'm an impatient he said. "I don't want the negotiations to go on and on." By making an offer, the gov- ernment would give the nego- tiating teams a chance to get down to firm bargaining, he said. ALVIN HAMILTON Whitton funeral conducted OTTAWA (CP) Promi- nent Mme. Jules Leger, wife of the Governor General, Progressive Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield and former prime minister John crowded into a small Anglican church here Monday to pay tribute to' Charlotte Whitton, the ebullient former mayor of Ot- tawa who died Saturday. She was 78. In a brief eulogy, Archbishop W. J. Robinson told the congregation of about 300 that though Miss Whitton was said to "have many per- sonalities, she had many talents." "She was a scholar, an au- thor, a lecturer, a politician. She was women's lib in- carnate." Among the tributes was a message from Prime Minister Trudeau who said: "As a young woman dedi- cated to reform and devoted to the problems of ordinary people, she left her mark on the development of social welfare in Canada. "She was pugnacious and irascible, but she loved her job and gave everything she had to it, winning in the process the affection and respect of even her op- ponents." Entombment is at Pinecrest Cemetery but burial sometime in the spring will be in Renfrew, Ont., the Ottawa Valley town about 50 miles west of here where Miss Whitton was born. Miss Whitton first gained of- fice in 1950 as a city controller, winning most votes in the race. It brought her to the mayor's chair nine months later when mayor Grenville Goodwin died. In all, she spent nine years and 78 days as Ottawa's mayor and almost 10 months as the city's first woman controller.

COMMUNITY SERVICES ADVISORY COMMITTEE U.S. has had its day F at top of By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) A member of the Canadian Par- liament told a roomful of top economists and legislators here Monday that the United States has had its day "at the top of the heap" and now is just one of the boys" on the international scene. Alvin Hamilton Qu'Appelle-Moose "former agriculture minister and minister of northern af- fairs and natural resources, was a member of a panel on prospects for international co- operation in inflation and energy. The panel was part of Quad- rangular Conference II, spon- sored by Georgetown Univer- sity's centre for strategic and international studies. Hamilton said the U.S. should not have been surpris- ed about shortages in oil and other commodities; that U.S. experts had been sounding' warnings for years. He said there was "no great tragedy" involved in running short of oil as other forms of energy were being developed to help take its place. JAPAN GOOD EXAMPLE Japan, he said, was an ex- ample of a country "doing very well without resources." Later, Hamilton said that Americans attending the conference had been concentrating on whether it would be a good idea to try to break up the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries Instead, he said, the emphasis should be on inter- national cooperation. He said the world can ex- pect, to see further oil-like cartels and added that "the countries with the natural resources have the clout." Hamilton said "the world must accept some the foremost of which has been the failure of bilateral aid pro- grams. Others included "the in- sufficiency of the world devel- opment'programs and the ne- cessity for new techniques to bring about clear-cut decisions by all nations acting in concert." He proposed six solutions: commodity agreements under the United Nations; trading companies; clearing-house for short-term credits; buying and sell- ing companies; stockpiles; international resource- planning agency. CONFLICT NOT ENDED "International commodity agreements do not end the conflict of supply and he said.1 "They reduce the fluc- tuations in price. They reduce the inequalities of sharing shortages and the cost of sur- pluses. They give Untie to ad- just to other alternatives." In a prepared statement, Hamilton said: "From the point of view of the poorer nations, the advan- tages of commodity agreements is multiplied many times. Not only is there the tremendous problem of their balance of payments, but their national development priorities are completely up- set if they are caught as purchasers of a vital product at a time of wild upward movement in price. "If they are a producer of a product in a downward fluc- tuation their country can be injured just as completely and usually the poorer nations are producers of a single basic commodity." IDEA NOT NEW Hamilton said that while the idea of international trading companies was not new, using them as a device to help sell the goods of a country in order to help that country gain the exchange to buy what it needs was a departure. "I foresee these companies as mostly private concerns but they could be national or multinational. The technique is three-way trade.
