That was the first year of the Calgary Stampede and today, when the rodeo celebrates its diamond jubilee, ornery cayuses and leathery cowpokes still are the main attraction. "Boots and saddles" is the call to action for most Calgari- ans as well as the thousands of tourists who visit the Stampede city every year; cowboy hats and boots are worn by many residents and a lot show up for work in full western gear, right down to the six-shooters. Attendance at the 1371 Stampede, which ran for nine days, was up from the previous record set in 1968. This year, with the show running 10 days, hopes are that attendance will pass the million mark. The rodeo features prize money and has attracted the top ropers and riders in North America. A youth parade, beginning at a.m. MDT, was to start the celebrations today and Premier Peter Lougheed, a Calgary law- yer, will officially open the show at 9 p.m. The Stampede parade, which draws floats from as far away as California, is to start at 9 a.m. next Monday with Chief Dan George, actor and Indian spokesman, as grand marshal. Karen Magnussen of North Vancouver, B.C., a silver-med- alist at the 1972 winter Olym< pics and world figure-skating championships, is the guest of honor this year. Bill bans strikes, slowdowns let's get the show on the road' Hy STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) Tough fed- eral legislation to re-open three strike-bound Quebec ports, idle since May 17, might take effect Friday. The bill banning strikes, worker slowdowns and em- ployer lockouts until the end of 1974 was introduced hastily Wednesday as a final solution to the labor disputes in Montreal, Quebec and Trois-Rivieres. The government could repeal the act earlier than 1974 if it chooses. The Commons gave it first reading and then general ap- Wednesday, waiving normal rules. The strike has backed up ex- ports of grain and other com- modities and deliveries of im- ported goods. It has kept Parh'a- ment sitting beyond the sched- uled June 30 summer adjourn- ment date and as involved fl labor agreement between em- ployers and the International Longshoremen's Association that had been described as a model one.

Terms of the bill: employers must start longshoring operations the day after proclamation of the bill. union officers must in- form their membership that strike orders of the past are invalid. union must dispatch workers to the docks and all workers bound by the collective agreement betwen the ILA and the employers association are bound to go to work. the three-year term of the agreement there will be no strikes, lockouts or slow- downs and no person covered in the agreement "shall partici- pate in a strike."

Tt would also allow the com- mission t any measure necessary to carry out the re- quired searches" and examine and seize any books or docu- ments with the special warrant. Mr. Choquette said Wednes- day in the national assembly the bill is aimed at crime, not Quebecers. Opposition members expressed concern that the com- mission might over-extend it- self. The justice minister said he hopes provisions in the bill might be extended in the future to include all inquiries on any aspects of criminal activity. It would be the Quebec cabinet, and not the police commission, which would decide on this WANT DRIVE CHANNELED Spokesmen for the Parti Quc- becois and the Creditiste party Not a kite Moffat hopes PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) Mayor Harold Jloffat said Wednesday he hopes the federal government's plan for expansion of northern transpor- tation is not "just another pre- election kite." "If its actual and not just another study or a look at the map, it's tremendous. But we don't need any more studies.

Mr. Choquelte said Mr. Paul's fears are unfounded since in- quiry commissions with powers lo hear testimony and conduct investigations already exist. CALGARY (CP) The na- tional convention of Jaycces soundly defeated a resolution Wednesday calling for legal prescription of heroin for reg- istered addicts. The resolutions said laws should be introduced into the Criminal Code ajid Food and Drug Act allowing specially li- censed doctors to prescribe heroin to addicts in the inter- ests of therapy. This would reduce crime and trafficking, the resolution said. The convention endorsed a proposal calling for stronger penalties for air piracy. The resolution said the present pen- alties are Inadequate. Earlier, the convention op- proved a resolution asking the federal government to abolish capital punishment "totally and permanently."
