ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Bldg. 328-4095 May Cause Cancer MIAMI, ria. (Reuters) Tannin, fount! in sorghum and certain teas and French wines, may cause cancer of the eso- phogus, an expert on tropical plants said here. Julia Morton of the University of Miami warned in a report to the National Cancer Institute of the potential hazards of promot- ing the use of tannin types of sorghum meal or flour by the United States agriculture de- partment. "Sorghum she said, "is used in some commercial pancake mixes and is being added to wheat flour for ship- ment abroad. "And waxy sorghums have been substituted for cassava in the making of tapioca des- serts." Mrs. Morton's findings con- clude a six-year study on a grant from the institute. She found that tannin-rich plants and foodstuffs such as sorghum were popular in Fa East areas of the world in which esophogeal cancer is high. Officers Retire From RCMP OTTAWA (CP) Supt J. G. E.

Kellough accused in Mr. McClellan's 54-page spe- cial report of unfair treat- ment of Mr. Philipzyk said the ombudsman had violated provisions of the Ombudsman's Act. "The ombudsman had clear- ly exceeded his jurisdiction by attempting to meddle in the af- fairs of persons who are non- government. "He has clearly undertaken to malign civilian Mr. Bowen said. "He has violated provi- sions of his own act." Mr. Bowen accused Mr. Mc- Clellan of criticizing Mr. Kel- lough and others and then hid- ing behind provisions of the Ombudsman Act. Commissioner McLaurin, a former chief justice of the Al- berta Supreme Court, is in- vestigating criticism in the re- port submitted to the cabinet last spring and made public June 22. The report says the treat- ment of Mr. Pliilipzyk, expel ed in 1968 by the Edmonto Real Estate Board Co-Opera live Listing Bureau Ltd., wa unreasonable, unjust and im properly discriminatory. The commission was fa structed by the cabinet to di termine whether the burea was properly incorporated as co-operative association whether Mr. Philipzyk wa wrongfully expelled, whathe government board officia should have approved the bu reau's bylaws which were ques tioned by Mr. McClellan an whether the bureau's bylaws the co-operative associatio act, or its procedures should be changed. Commissioner McLaurin sai it would be pertinent to the in quiry for Mr. McClellan to an swer one question: Whether he interviewed Mr. Kellough be- fore tile ombudsman's repor to the legislature. Mr. McLaurin said he woul rigidly enforce provisions the Ombudsman's Act protect ing documents and investigi tions as privileged information Mr. Weir said that under the act Mr. McClellan does no have the authority to decid whether to give evidence a this or any other judicial pro needing. He is accountable onl to the legislature. Unionists Indicted For Contributions WASHINGTON (AP) The Seafarers' International Unio and eight of its officers and em ployees were indicted by a fed era! grand jury Tuesday for al leged contributions to politica campaigns of Democrats am Republicans in 1968. Pollution Agency Urged By KEN KELLY Canadian Press Science Writer OTTAWA (CP) The Science Council of Canada is preparing ;o advise that the federal gov- ernment set up an environmen- tal council on the short-term and long-term effects of man's impact on the world around him. Many questions about the agency are still in the discus- sion stage but informants sale here that the council will jive notice of its intentions early next month. One possibility is that the Council will make a special re- port to Prime Minister Trudeau jutlining its views of the needs 'or and purposes of a special environmental agency. Air, water and other forms of pollution are only a small part of the problem as currently en- visaged by the Science Council study group doing spadework 'of the Council's debate on the subject. A major factor is population prowth and the optimum popu- ation for this country. This is a particular interest of 3r. 0. M. S'olandt, Science Council chairman, who is pub- icly on record as saying Can- ada in the next two years should decide what the optimum wpulation should be and take steps to keep it there. STUDY U.S. MOVES The Science Council study jroup has taken a look at the Jnited States' environmental council of which President fixon is chairman and the var- ous alternatives put forward jefore that structure was adopted. For Canada, the possibilities >eing discussed include a kind if permanent royal commission ;uch as in Britain, a special agency modelled on the Science Council, the Science Council it- self and a small commission composed of fulltime members. The latter proposal is being put forward as a solution to the >roblem of part-time members ending to act as spokesmen for heir fulltime jobs as sometimes KCUTS with the Science Council. Because of Canada's jurisdic- ional problems, it also is being uggested that some form of oint federal-provincial environ- nental agency be set up. The Science Council has two main routes for letting the gov- ernment and the public know its inal thinking. One is through the conven- lonal bound volume of the tudy group's report and the Council's recommendations on t. This is slow and cumbersome Hid, with 10 such volumes on topics at d i f f e r e n t tages of preparation, the Coun- il may opt for an open letter to Ir. Trudeau following up later pith more detailed presentation of iU case. Attorney-General John Mitchell announced that the 17 count indictment, returned in U.S. District Court in Brooklyn alleges that the union contrib- uted to campaigns in 1968 and had conspired to con tribute between 1964 and 1868. Federal law proliibits direc political contributions by corpo- rations and labor unions. The union and its secretary treasurer, Al Kerr, were nama in eight counts charging an ac tual violation of the law. Kerr also was named in the conspiracy count along with SH President Paul Hall, lobbyis Philip Carlip, vice-presiden Earl Shephard and four union employees, Frank Boyne, Jo- seph DiGiorgio and brothers Frank and Paul Drocak. The indictment said contribu- tions from union members were obtained at the same time union dues and assessmnets were col- lected. 'Probationary members ol the union would be causec to fear that failure or refusal to make contributions woulc result in the loss of their em- the indictment said The question of union contri- butions to the Democratic party had been an element in the con- troversial Hal C. Banks case, with Arizona Senator Paul Fan nin once charging in a Senate speech that a "union goon" is allowed to "roam free in the United States as the result of what appears to be a political payoff." SOUGHT INVESTIGATION Fannin, a Republican, had won a hearing before State Sec- retary William Rogers last April asking that the new Re- publican administration look into the case in which former state secretary Dean Kusk refused to sign a U.S. commis- sioner's order to extradite Banks to Canada to face per- jury charges. Fannin and several U.S. news- papers had charged that soon after Rusk made that decision, the SIU started; sending cheques to various Democratic presidential campaign commit- tees around the a total Of Rogers has said that nothing much could be done about re- opening the case unless Canada makes such a request, and Ot- tawa has said it considers the case closed. Banks, once head of the SIU of Canada, returned to his na- ive U.S. in 1964 after jumping bail. He had been sent- enced to five years in jail in Canada for conspiring to com- mit violence against a rival union leader. 'Bishop' Jailed u Fraud Case TORONTO (CP) Guy F. Claude Hamel, a self-styled archbishop of the Old Roman Catholic Church, was sentenced lere to nine months in jail and put on probation for three years after being convicted of lefrauding shopkeepers of about over nine years. Hanel, 35, who called himself Ms Holiness Claudius I, berated lis lawyer for refusing to put lim oa the stand in his own def- ence and claimed he was the victim of a conspiracy by prose- cutor Clay Powell and provin- :ial police Inspector Jeff Cooper.
