But department fisheries just Russia, Romania Agree To Fight For Each Other MOSCOW (Reuters) A new Russian-Romanian friendship treaty published today stresses the sovereignty and independ- ence of each country but com- mits them to fight for each other in the event of an armed attack. The treaty was signed in Bu- charest Tuesday. Publication of the text today followed the re- lease by the Soviet news agency Tass of a summary of the treaty which brought expres- sions of surprise and annoyance from officials in Bucharest. The new treaty bears a close resemblance to similar treaties between Russia and its other al- lies, but with some differences clearly regarded as important by Romania. It does not enslirine the so- called Brezhnev that Communist countries have the right to defend the "socialist gains of the peoples" in each o t h e r 's was used by the Kremlin to justify the Warsaw pact occupation Czechoslovakia in 1968. Alone among the Warsaw pact nations Romania opposed the move, incurring Moscow's dis- pleasure and delaying by nearly two years the signature of the treaty. hates to see an Indian catch- ing fish for a dinner- on his he said. Chief Albany called for res- toration of Indian hereditary fishing rights in coastal rivers as well as extension of terri- torial waters to the continental shelf to protect Canadian fish- ermen. He said water pollution and saturation fishing methods em- ployed by the Japanese and Russians are exhausting sup- plies of salmon and other fish "s YELLOWKNIFE, N .W .T (CP) The Queen and hei family are south of the Arctii Circle once again, but still deep in the story-book country o Canada's northern frontier. The ice-flocs-and-Eskimos part of their trip came to an end Tuesday with the royal par ty's arrivalhere on the shores of Great Slave Lake, south o the Arctic Circle by 275 miles and a mere 600 air miles north of Edmonton. The departure point for the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Princess Anne, hac beoi the Northwest Territories community of Inuvik, on the Mackenzie delta 120 miles inside the circle. The. plane carrying Charles and Anne arrived first, followed in a matter of minutes by the jetliner with the Queen and Philip aboard. At the airport the wind was blowing to beat the fact, it began to refurl the wel- coming carpet before it could even be put to use. But the temperature was a balmy 70 under a panoramic mix of blue sky and thunder- heads, in contrast to the misty, windy, minus-50s weather that had been encountered the pre- vious two days of the tour in Frobisher1 Bay, Resolute, Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk. Another sign of encroaching civilization, aside from high-rise buildings lording over a monot- ony of scrub forest, was the monumental traffic tieup that occurred in the wake of the royal arrival. First stop aftef a motorcade through town was the Con Mine on Yellowknife's outskirts where a roped-off, royal pas sage led'uphill to the goldmine's concentrator entrance. A half-dozen or so miners were there to be introduced to the royal visitors, and all o them wore their hardhats ant their miners' work outfits. It was clockwork scheduling all the way. The only diversion was causec by a couple of sparrows who have a nest inside the concen- trator. They actually dived al bystanders, officials and report- LIEUTENANT GOVER- NOR Appointment of Win- nipeg businessman W. J. McKeag to be Manitoba's next lieutenant-governor, suc- ceeding Richard S.

Moving down the hill after that, the royal party went'inside the refinery, with its blast-fur- nace heat, 'where they watched the processing of a gold brick which weighed in at 45 pounds of fine gold. Seeing a gold brick poured was old hat to had watched the same process at the very same mine when he made a solo tour of the North in 1954. But it was new to the rest of the family, and everyone in- cluding Philip hefted the bar briefly. The return to town, to the royal apartments at the Eraser Tower, Yellowknife's mini-sky- scraper, ended the day's pro- gram. Today, there is another crowded schedule for the party which includes Philip and Charles flying to the territorial settlements of Fort Smith and Pine Point. The royal party will be in Yel- lowknife until Friday morning departure for the port of Churchill on Hudson Bay. There they begin the Manitoba leg of a tour marking the centennials of both of the territories and the province. Royal activities at Inuvii Tuesday included making the rounds of the local hospital and a visit to an Eskimo gift shop where the family made pur- chases worth Charles bought moose lide slippers, Arnie white cowhide gloves, and Philip a pair of moosehide mitts. Aides settled the accounts with the Eskimo clerks. BOYLEN DIES -Matthew James Boylen, millionaire prospector and mining pro- moter, died in Toronto. Hi was 62.

Only one elected representa- tive of the Liberal party was present at the he showed up with seven executive assistants to cabinet ministers. John Roberts, MP for York- Smcoe, told them he wants to see a lot more evidence about drugs and their effects before he would go as far as they rec- ommend. The Student Liberal brief oiled for free choice by in- formed individuals about whether to take drugs and what ones to take, including the so- called "hard" drugs of heroin and the opiates. It backed the recommenda- tion of the Le Dain commission on non-medical drug use which called for lifting of prison sen- tences for drug possession and a maximum fine on convic- tion. "Non-medical drug use is a question of personal, individual says the Student Lib- eral brief. And, quoting the Le Daui commission interim report, it adds: "Canadian society must move 'from a reliance on suppression to a reliance on the wise exer- cise of freedom of choice' in the non-medical use of drugs." Mr. Roberts said he cannot accept the idea that heroin should be treated exactly as to- bacco, alcohol and other sub- stances. The farthest he would go at present was the transfer of marijuana from the harsh Nar- cotics Control Act to the Food and Drugs Act as recommended by the Le Dain commission. This the government had agreed to consider following last month's tabling of the commis- sion report. He suggested the students had "weaseled out" of one problem. If they maintained drug use is a matter of individual choice an not one for society, then to 1 logical they had to support th same freedom for drug pusher DENIES CHARGE Student Liberal presiden John Varley, Toronto, denie this and said the brief calls fo legislation to allow legal, quah ty-controlled distribution. Earlier, Mr. Varley and Free MacDonald, Ottawa, polic committee chairman who rea the document to n porters, expressed disappoin ment at the failure of cabine ministers to show up, at th slender MP attendance and a the general response of the gov ernment to the Le Dain report. Bill MacEachern, executiv assistant to Manpower Ministe Alan MacEachen, said the Stu dents were aware that mos ministers would be at cabine commit tee meetings at th scheduled time of the meeting. Peter Vivian, executive assisl ant to Justice. Minister John Turner, was the only one to ac cept the Students' invitation ty the Simko car and knocked into the path of Goerz's track. Mr. Justice Greschuk order- ed Simko to pay 75 per cent of he award because he was ravelling too fast and Goerz 25 XT cent. He said Goerz could lave avoided the Falconer car or hit it at a reduced speed. Falconer, a pianist, aircraft ilot and competitive shooter, was forced to retire from the ROMP last January after almost 27 years ol service.
