"If this charter had not been vetoed we in Saskatchewan and Manitoba would have no rights whatever to bring about a change to the constitution" Mr. Diefenbaker added.

Milvain of Al- lerta Supreme Court ruled Monday the suspensions of two city police constables in May was a "gratuitous and officious nlerference with the police orce" by the now-defunct Cal- gary Police Commission. Mr. Justice Milvain invali- dated the suspensions without jay handed out to the two eon- i tables after the commission had found them guilty of as- saulting a Calgary man Feb. "A.

In addition to the fine Taiangle must pay the origi- nal taxes evaded and a 25-per- cent penalty for negligence. months suspension without pay, and Constable Michael Frede- rick Beal to four months with- out pay. Mr. Justice Milvain said the only matters of discipline vhich should come before the commission are those referred frcm the police chief, and these ihould be only cases serious enough to warrant dismissal, demotion, or if the police chief 'eels it necessary to ensure impartiality. The police commission since ias been superseded by a new structure under a provincial )olice commission. Mayor Rod Sykes in an inter- view later, said tie decision indicates the limited extent of authority commissions have over local police forces. The court also had not ruled on the alleged assault of a citizen, but on the commission's jurisdic- .ion. REVIEW LAW He said it would be wise to review the law relating to the new commission. "Until this is done, appar- ently the new police commis- sion has little or no authority or effect over the police de- Mr. Sykes said. The chief justice, in the judg- ment, ruled lhat the commis- sion has authority to investi- gate any member of the force but any recommendation or re. port should go to the provin- cial attorney-general for action.

But Theodore secre- tary-treasurer of a Yonkers, N.Y., local, took a more positive view. 'Call me General President Daley, because I'm going to take the Daley said. CHARGE FITZSIMMONS Vestal and Daley, in separate interviews, accused Fitzsim- mons of running the union as a dictatorship and refusing to give the union's two million mem- bers a voice in its affairs. Daley said he did not believe that Hoffa sent a message from his prison cell endorsing Fitz- simmons, "and even if he did, Hoffa can't run this convention from Lewisburg." Hoffa, who reigned over the union for 10 years, entered the Lewisburg, Pa., federal peniten- tiary four years ago on convic- tions for jury tampering and mail fraud. Fitzsimmons, who had been running the union as acting president most of Hoffa's four years in prison, clashed with Daley at tire opening session of the convention Monday when Daley challenged adoption of the rules.

A larger share, up 65 cents to would go from local payments to the union's international headquarters. "This is a mandatory increase of in dues without any vote of the Daley said.

The report for the week end- ed Saturday said precipitation was recorded in most regions and averaged .61 inches. However, in the south rain- fall was not widespread and more was needed to maintain the heavy crop growth where hot, drv winds are causing some damage. In northern and Peace River areas the week's rainfall meant continued flooding of some low- lying fields. Warm, sunny weather, normal for this time, now is required to bring the crops along, the re- port said. SOME HAIL Some hail damage WBS re- ported in rapeseed crops in east-central regions. Soil moisture conditions re- mained good. Crop conditions were good to excellent although slightly down from last week. Wheat and barley were rated 96 per cent of normal. Oats stood at 97 per cent, rye 83, flax 94 and rapeseed 93. Forty-three stations, mostly in the south and south-central districts reported crop deteri- oration due to lack of moisture. Frost was reported at Pin- cher Cayley, Namaka and Hughenden on June 27. Canadian trade mission begins visit to Britain SHEFFIELD, England (CP) A Canadian trade mission has begun a 10-day visit to Brit- ain during which it will tour machine tool factories In Shef- field, London and Birmingham. The 20 Canadians, represent- ing major distributors of in- dustrial equipment, are paying special attention to production techniques and manufacturing processes.

The wheat crop was progress- ing well, now averaging 12 In- ches In height. Last week's growth of three inches brought the crop lo the same height M last year at this time. Haying was well under way in the south. Welfare frauds probed TORONTO (CP) Thomas Ontario's minister of so- cial and family services, says he plans to send special investi- gation teams through the prov- ince to investigate possible frauds by welfare recipients and welfare officials. Mr. Wells said in an interview Monday the number of welfare frauds in the province is in- creasing along with the number of persons receiving welfare payments. Earlier in the legislature, he said the welfare director of Vic- toria County and a welfare field worker in that county have been charged with fraud. Charged with fraud invloving are Robert Martyn, for- mer county welfare director, and Audrey Shepherd, a field worker for the welfare office. Martyn resigned from the county welfare department May 21. He said he suspects some peo- ple are trying to slip fraudulent welfare applications unnoticed into the increasing number of legitimate applications. Monday's announcement was the third by Mr. Wells in Oie last five weeks about tightening welfare practices. In late May, he gave munici- palities the power to refuse wel- fare to leen-agers under 18 who5e parents are willing to supoort them at home. Early last month, he said able-bodied single men receiv- ing welfare should be willing to accept jobs anywhere in the province. This, however, has not become government policy.
