(CP) Opposition Leader Robert Stan- field left the Canadian north today convinced the federal gov- ernment must "get cracking" to settle aboriginal land rights. The question of settling with the Indian and Eskimo people was one dominant feature of the Progressive Conservative lead- er's five-day swing through the Northwest Territories and the Yukon. He was told several times by native groups that they must have an economic base to be- come independent of the white man. Most of the natives he spoke with said this money must come in the form of a cash settlement and a share of mineral royalties as payment for aboriginal land righ4.

He said several times during the tour that the solution to a settlement will not be easy to "ind and will take considerable discussion between the native reople and the government. "This (a start on the prob- lem) would go a long way to- ward smoothing the road ahead 'or northern resource develop- he told the association's annual meeting. "It would go a .ong way toward making up for the sad record of pathological 3aternalism that has been the set attitude of succeeding gener- ations of Liberal governments." Earlier, he told a news con- ference that his northern tour, which included Hay River, Eae, Yellowknife and Inuvik in the N.W.T., has led him to believe that settlement of native land rights is a more basic issue in native development than he had imagined. Another primary topic during the -tour was development of northern communities and natu- ral resources. Mr. Stanfield told the news conference that the Trudeau ad- ministration has not been con- sulting the people of the territo- ries enough and that both the N.W.T. and the Yukon should be given a greater degree of self- government by Ottawa. Also, the federal government was not putting enough research and money Into northern devel- opment. Federal ministers talking about an oil pipeline down the Mackenzie Valley don't have the "foggiest" idea about costs, or risks involved because there have been no government studies on an arctic pipeline, he said. Mr. Stanfield told reporters he believes a pipeline should be built to take oil from the Cana- dian north but its effects on the delicate permafrost should be closely studied. Considerable in- formation had been gathered while studying the proposed Trans-Alaska Pipeline System but Canada had not even both- ered to observers to Alaska. Saturday night Mr. Stanfield kicked up his heels in true Klon- dike fashion and received the Grand Exalted Order of the Yukon Garter for being the "best darned garter watcher in the Yukon." To win the honor, he had to remove a garter from the leg of showgirl Lipstick Lou to the de- light of persons attending a Pro- gressive Conservative dance. QUEBEC (CP) The na- tional assembly was to resume debate today on the govern- ment's James Bay development legislation and Premier Robert Bourassa has vowed to continue legislature sittings until the bill is adopted. The bill creating a Crowr. cor- poration to oversee the million hydroelectric project was given second reading Fri- day as tempers flared. Some members, hoping for a summer recess soon, have ac- cused the Liberal government of trying to railroad the legislation through before the holiday. Fri- day night's session nearly erupted twice in fistfighls and in an unusual Saturday sitting which lasted until midnight the Speaker repeatedly had to call members to order. On Saturday, a Parti Quebe- cois motion that the legislation be deferred to the permanent legislature committee of the ex- ecutive council was defeated 63 to 15. PQ WANTS CHANGES The government received sup- port from the Crcditistes after Premier Bourassa promised four amendments to the pro- posed legislation, providing that: would be in charge of all sale and distribu- tion of power from the project; role of private enter- prise in developing the region would be clarified; extraordinary measures Snoivdon involved in party insult would be used tion; for expropria- tion. The cabinet minister would reply in the assembly on all matters concerning the corpora- Parti Quebecois wants the 15-member legislature com- mittee to study the government jill to bring to light information that the PQ says is lacking. The convmittee has the power to ex- amine cabinet estimates and submit reports to the legisla- ire. The hydroelectric project has been debated for five days. Both Panarctic oil interest not for sale OTTAWA (CP) The federal government is under strong pressure from oil companies to sell its 45-pcr-cent interest in Panarctic Oils Ltd. at a time when Panarctic seems on the verge of valuable discoveries in the Arctic, former NDP leader T.C. Douglas says. But Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien says he has had no such pressure in his three years as minister. If oil companies did ask him to get out of Panarctic, he says, the answer would be "a flat no." Both men were interviewed on the CBC television program Weekend, broadcast Sunday night. Mr. Douglas also criticized panies. Under Panarctic's action in "farming out" land under its control for exploration by private oil com- "farm-out" agree- ments, the oil companies do the exploring and Panarctic get a share of any discoveries, plus a fee for permitting the explora- tion. Mr. Chretien also said the fed- eral government may sell its Panarctic interests, at a "fair market to the Canada Development Corp. when that Crown corporation is formed.

Heath was pressed hard on the British cost of entry, partic- ularly in relation to higher food price and living costs. He argued that the cost would have only marginal impact on the British economy while the op- portunities for enlarged mar- kets and for European peace and political co-operation wouli" be extensive. He said he had a vision of a United Europe, somewhat or the scale of co-operation anc unity that had not been seen on the Continent for years. He maintained that British public opinion, which appearec to be against entry, would be- come more convinced of the great advantages as more atten- tion is paid to entry terms.

The toll was the highest of any such attack on a U.S. base in the war. Some officers and men claimed that the base's de- fences were lax and the troops were not prepared for an at- tack.
