Sgt. Guy Marcil of Montreal said more and more powers are being given to the man provincial police commis- sion that was started in 1989. If the tread continues, he said, "we are going to see a police state in He told reporters bis police association warned the Quebec government of the danger if recommendations made in a SIRAY In loving memory of a 4ear father and grand- lamer, Andrew, who passed away July 4, 1966, and a dear mother and grandmother, Bar- who passed away April 5, 1972.

Policemen told: Quebec becoming Constable Syd Brown of To- ronto, association president, complimented Prime Minister Trudeau for recent ments to the solicitor gen- eral's department. The prime minister helped considerably, he said. "We couldn't have ed better cursives." (vhite paper police ment completed two years ago were implemented. Despite ifae warning, the gov- ernment appears to be acting on the basis of the recommen- dations, Sgt. Marcil said. He also cited the powers'of a Mon- treal Security Council appoint- ed by UK province which in ef- fect sets the areast police bud- jet. He told delegates tbe high cost of policing is currently an issue in Montreal, costing the city million a year. He said another million should be spent for new equipment and replacements for worn-out equipment the force is still us- ing. Sgt Marcil said a high crime rate is blamed on the police but is often tha result of the of laws that- are passed. He-opened bis remarks by say- ing different levels of govern- ment seem to think "municipal He compared the associa- tion's policies now with tow in 1968 wbsn he became president. Some were still live issues such as wiretapping, provincial po- lice acts and colleges, push lor two-man patrol cars, bail re- form, and improved identifica- tion on drivers' licences. Other issues have died or pro- gress has been made on them, such as civilian police review boards which are now demanded, better pay, pensions and riot control training. Use of the RCMP, lack of training and equipment and poor pay were problems raised several Atlantic delegates. in province-by-province reports. The delegates said some mu- nicipalities and provinces use the threat of handing policing duties in cities to the RCMP and phasing out tbe local force as a club in wage negotiations. Although the RCMP is general- ly better paid about half the police are the clowns of our so- ciety." A similar theme was struck by Vancouver Deputy Chief Constable Tom Stokes hi his welcoming speech to the 54 del- egates representing all prov- inces. Chief Stokes said some leg- islators are adding rather than lessening the problems police- men meet. We see increased tenden- cies, for example, of people in position of authority openly condoning legal use of mari- juana and pleas for more le- niency to be shown towards the users and even traffickers of an Wads of be said. He said the increased use of drugs contributes to a higher crime Tate generally as users seek money to pay for then- addiction. A higher crime rate m turn leads to higher policing costs. He said Changing mores also contribute to polic- ing problems. There was more permissiveness, a greater em- phesis on civil liberties and re- cent legislative changes that made enforcement more diffi- cult.

Police and Canadian Forces personnel swooped down on the sound by sea, acting en a tip that iho 294? vintage former US. Navy vessel was crammed with hashish worth more than minion on tbe illicit drag market. The MarysvflJe and the Cana- dian fisbboat Gondola, which was also in tbe sound, were searched repeatedly, 20 persons were arrested, but no drugs have been found so far.

He added that bis. men were also considering tbe possi- bility that the drugs ware cached ashore prior to tbe ar- rival of the RCMP and armed forces Saturday. Tbe owner of tbe Marysvflla is Alexander Derenzy, 38, a btoe movie-maker from San Ra- fael, Calif. He was charged, along with 12 others aboard Marysvflfe, with unlawfully con- spiring to land two aliens n Canada aad with conspiring to land the men by steatth. Derenry is the maker of two of the more popular blue mov- in Denmark and a History of Tbe Blue He and the dozen others aboard the Marysville are scheduled'to appear in court Friday. Meanwhile, tbe seven men aboard tbe Gondola appeared in provincial court Wednesday in North Vancouver, B.C., charged with conspiring to import nar- cotics into Canada. No pleas were entered and all seven were remanded until Tuesday.

Association secretary Dennis Latten of Toronto said the fed- eral government should be pressured into making the provinces pay their own police costs or give a uniform sub- sidy to each province. Joe Ross, a futttime execu- tive-director for the Maritunes, said the RCMP in New Brun- swick are "eager to take over any dry they can." But he said the RCMP answer calls regarding small- er crimes such as vandalism or petty (hefts and in many cases have to travel 15 miles to' the area of a call from a central office.

He said new revolvers and holsters were issued but no bullets." In one case a policeman not trained in weapons shot at an impaired driver and missed a public furor, be said. "All the police are ed not? except one I guess." However, the police with in- adequate training and low pay a year for a coastabte have risks with an in- creasing number of armed thieves involved in break-ins. In one case two police disarm- ed a man carrying a cock- ed sawed-off shotgun down the street. Constable Walt Bennett of the Newfoundland Constabulary the only unarmed police force in Canada said they encoun- tered few problems because of the lack of weapons. His great- est fear, he said would be po- lice that are armed but not trained. He described a federal case requiring armed police from the constabulary. The police had to take the guns to the RCMP office for checking in a shopping bag and borrow hol- sters which the constabulary didn't have. The delegates at the five-day convention will hold their next business session today in Esqui- malt before a tour of Victoria with their families. OIL BEING REMOVED FROM DISABLED TANKER LES ESCOUMINS, Que. (CP) Work crews were to begin discharging a cargo of light stove oil from the tanker St. Spyridon today following a colli-; sion near here in fog with a cargo vessel Wednesday. The battered St. Spyridon was towed 12 miles to deeper water a few miles east of Trois Pis- toles. Another tanker, the Te- xaco Brave, was standing by to take oil off the St. Spyridon. One crew member of the St. Spyridon lost his leg when the ship and the grain-carrier Flor- ence collided, ripping a 40-foot- wide hole in the side of the tanker. Mike Parianen, a kitchen worker on the St Spyridon said he had just left tbe kitchen to go on deck shortly before 9 a.m. when he heard "a big boom" and felt the boat rocking violently from side to side. On tbe deck, wires and chil- dren of the captain and chief engineer were crying and the crew muled about in confusion, he said. Boats from the pilot station at Les Escoumins res- cued all 55 persons aboard the two ships. The Florence had bow dam- age but was in no danger of sinking. HEARD NO SIGNAL Mr. Parianen said the St. Spyridon has an automatic fog- horn which sounds about every two minutes. He said he did not hear a signal from another ship. "I can't understand how the other ship bit us in tbe side Hke that" There was speculation that position of impact resulted when the Florence-swung out toward tbe main channel after dropping its pilot off at Les Es- coumins and the St Spyridon swerved toward the coast to pick up a pflot for its journey down tbe St. Lawrence River to Montreal. "It's lucky we were bit in the Mr. Parianen said. "We were carrying refined oil and if we'd been hit bead-on we would've exploded." Capt. Dimitrious Vougioukas of the St. Spyridon said the ship was stopped waiting for a pilot for the journey upriver to Mon- treal when the collision oc- Gasoline outlook brightens Price freeze causes food shortages By RON SNIDER Star-News WASHINGTON The extent of food shortages and process- ing plant shutdowns dating President Nixon's Wdsy freeze on prices was not anticipated by planners, a freeze policy group member has acknowl- By WILLIAM SMITH New York Times Service NEW YORE Government officials and oil industry execu- tives are celebrating wfih a slight sigh of relief as the threat of summer gasoline shortages across the nation ap- pears to be less severe than feared during late May and June. Whether the gasoline short- age is real, or contrived as some industry critics contend, the situation has improved over tbe last few weeks. "I am now guardedly optim- istic for this William E.

"The situation hasv improved considerably and is now pre- cariously hopeful for fie rest of the John Lichtblau, head of tbe Petroleum Industry Research Foundation has said.

The Florence, tinder charter to Kerr Steamships of Montreal, was bound for Europe from Montreal, with tons of grain. DESCRIBES CRASH Stelios Draboukakii of Athens, another crewman aboard the St. Spyridon, de- scribed the crash: "Out of nowhere a huge piece of metal came through the side of the engine room and crushed Nicky's "leg. I didn't believe it at first but then I released it was a ship." The injured man, Nickolas Grivas, 35, was taken to hospi- tal at Les Escoumins, then transferred'by coast guard heli- copter to Chicoutimi, Que. Hos- pital spokesmen described his condition as "grave." Three children and two women were taken off the St. wife of the cap- tain and their six-year-old daughter and the wife of the first engineer and their two young children. Initial rescue attempts by tugs, transport department heli- copters and Canadian coast guard vessels were hampered by fog. Transport Minister Jean Marcnahd flew over the tanker Wednesday nisht in a helicop- ter. He told the Commons be- fore leaving Ottawa that an oil spiU might result from the acci- dent. Later, be told reporters oil-re- moval equipment was being rushed to the scene.
