Cambodia bombing protested MELBOURNE (Reuter) Longshoremen's unions voted today to boycott United States ships in the Australian port of. Melbourne to protest American bombing in Cambodia.

Artificial liver developed BERKELEY, Calif. (Reu- ter) The world's first arti- ficial liver has been devel- oped by a 28-year-old Japa- nese-American scientist who began work on the device he was 18. An artificial liver has long been considered a near im- possibility, says Dr. Kenneth Matsumura, of the private Immunity Research Labora- tory, because the liver has a variety of complex functions. Dr. Matsumura says he has been granted a patent on his book-sizs device, designed to be used outside the body, like an artificial kidney, process- ing a patient's blood and re- turning the treated blood to the body. The liver not only removes poisons from the system and filters waste products, but also synthesizes blood-clotting proteins and plays a vital role in the metabolism of fats and sugars.

Housing starts decline OTTAWA (CP) Toe annual rate for housing starts was 263.- 100 in May, down from in the same month last year, the Central Mortgage and Hous- ing Corp. (CMHC) reported Wednesday. However, rising demand re- duced tbe available supply of housing in metropolitan areas, CMHC said in its monthly sum- mary of housing statistics. The annual rate of housing starts was in April. The rate is a projection of an- nual results based on such fac- tors as actual monthly starts in 10 major urban centres, avail- ability of building materials and labor, past performance, weather and supply of mort- gage money. Actual urban starts in May totalled 19.453. down six per cent from in May, 1972. Starts for the first five months of 1973 amounted to 71.276, up from 69.962 in the same period last year. The number of houses com- pleted rose to in May from in the same month last year. But the number of unoccupied one-and two-family dwellings in urban areas was 959, a 24 per cent drop from the May, 1972 level. on the Frankfurt exchange where it showed the biggest drop ever recorded against the mark. It also set new lows in Paris, Zurich, Amsterdam, Brussels, Oslo, Stockholm and Milan. The volume of dollar sales was extremely light, with few buyers, and this contributed to the big swing in the price. The dollar's poor showing was attributed by some dealers to a report saying another upward revaluation of the mark is likely and to an unconfirmed re- port that an unidentified Middle Eastern country was trying to sell a large holding of dollars. There was also a suggestion that recent U.S. restrictions on soybean and scrap metal ex- ports will cut America's foregin earnings. Most analysts are in general agreement on the reasons for tte basic weakness of the dollar that has prevailed for months. These include a lack o f con- fidence in the Nixon adminis- trations 'effectiveness bcause of the Watergate scandal, TJ.S. inflation and adverse American trade figures.

EDMONTON (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau said Wednes- day night federal preparations for a conference on Western economic opportunities this month are the most extensive in Canadian history except for wartime work. The prime minister, however, wasn't exactly sure where the conference that his government proposed is going to be held. "In Victoria no in Regina he started a sentence while addressing 500 Liberal support- ers. He was quickly corrected by others on the platform and went on to finish the sentence: "In Calgary, we will meet as governments and want to see concrete results." 'TOUGH The conference, involving the governments of British Colum- bia, Alberta. Saskatchewan and Manitoba and the federal gov- ernment, will be held at Cal- gary, July 24-26. Mr. Trudeau said the confer- ence represents a "tough prob- lem" for the federal govern- ment. More officials, ministers and other people in the party are trying to come to grips with the problem than have worked on any other in our history. "This is the spirit in which we are going to the Western economic opportunities confer- ence." No matter wbat the press or the provincial premiers say of tbe conference, some progress Turner explains reason for oilseed export, control OTTAWA (CP) Selective export controls, such as those announcpd recently for petro- leum and oilseed products, are not part of a general govern- ment effort to control inflation, Finance Minister John Turner said Wednesday. But he refused to give assur- ances, when pressed ID tbe Commons by James GflSes (PC-Toronto Don that iimilar controls will not be ap- plied to other products. He said tbe export controls on oilseed products, announced last week by IVade Alas- lair Gillespie, were imposed in an attempt to "stabOoe a North American They cover such products as linseed, rapeseed and fishmeal which are used to feed livestock.

PROBLEMS VAST The problems were too vast for any single conference to handle, however. "We have no expectations that after a decade of alien- ation, everything will be solved in a day." The prime minister, stopped here overnight on his way to Calgary to join Queen Elizabeth at the opening of the Calgary Stampede today. He thanked Edmonton Liber- als for working for the party before the October federal elec- tion "in what must seem to you to be a very difficult cause." No Liberals from Alberta gained election to Parliament in October. "I like a challenge and, my God, how I like Mr. Trudeau said to laughter. Grits to urge tax differential VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia Liberal Party policy committee says at least 51 per cent of all industries in Canada should be Canadian owned and suggests a time limit be set by tbe federal gov- ernment for achieving this. In a paper prepared for tin Liberal conference here on western objectives next week, Ibe committee said it wants tax incentives to promote Ca- nadian ownership of Canadian industry and the imposition of a tax differential against for- eign owned businesses. Revision of Canada's tariff structure to benefit western Canadian industries was also recommended. B.C. Liberals "want an econ- omy that allows for greater in- dustrial development within a healthy environment that em- phasizes Canadian ownership of both land and tbe paper says. They also want government agencies decentralized and co- ordinated to make decisions more relevant to local condi- tions.

Juvenal Habyalimana, seized power today in the for- Diplomats helped plan uprising BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) Iraq's ambassadors to the So- viet Union and the United Na- tions were reported Wednesday to have helped plan last week- end's abortive coup against the leftist regime in Baghdad. Beirut newspapers speculated that former vice-president Saleh Mebdi Ammash, Iraqi ambassa- dor in Moscow, and former for- eign minister Abdul Karim Sheikhly, now at the United Na- tions, would soon be removed from their posts. Neither was available for comment. Ammash and Sbeikhly lost their original positions in a 1969 power struggle that left Siddam Hussein as the undisputed strong man of the ruling Social- ist Baath party. The latest newspaper ac- counts in Beirut says the goal of the weekend uprising was to arrest or kill Hussein and Presi- dent Hassan al-Bakr at Bag- hdad Airport, then announce a new Baathist government headed by Ammash.

The broadcast from the Rwanda capital said the gov- ernment of President Gregoire Kayibanda has resigned and all political activities have been banned. It was not immediately clear what had happened to the presi- dent or members of his govern- ment. A French embassy spokes- man in Nairobi said: "We nave confirmation from Kigali that there has been a bloodless coup there. We believe it happened around dawn, but it is not yet clear now it was carried out. The tiny country is sur- rounded by Tanzania, Uganda, and the republic of Zaire. Rwanda, formerly part of the Belgian United Nations trust territory of Ruanda-Burundi, became independent in 1962. Radio Kigali quoted a com- munique from the high com- mand of the national guard say- ing a "national peace com- mittee" would replace the gov- ernment until new ruling in- stitutions had been set up. Another Kigali broadcast monitored in Nairobi said Kayi- banda, who ruled over the tiny land-locked state of three mil- lion people since 1961, had been "taken prisoner" and the na- tional guard was in control Baby suffocates WHITELAW (CP) Ta- mara Lynnette Wood, a month-old baby, died of suffo- cation while sleeping yesterday in her home near this Peace Country town.
