'Massive bird slaughter9 WASHINGTON (AP) An organization called The Fund for Animals says the Canadian government is considering re- quests that would allow blue- berry farmers to conduct "a massive slaughter" of robins. The group says the robins gather in Canada's Maritime provinces on their way to the United States, and that the! birds have been turning to blue- berries for food as pesticide spraying programs kill insects, their natural food.

B.C. cherry war Outlaw growers look to courts VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia cherry war is expected to move into court this week, following the sale of more than 50 tons of outlaw cherries Sunday. A convoy of 23 trucks brought the fruit down from the time because we are going against the ministry of agricul- said Mr. Rhenisch. Mr. Hume and Mr. Rhenisch said they want to replace the fruit board's control of the pro- duction and sale of B.C. fruit with a fruit marketing associa- the Okanagan to Vancouver tion made up of growers, Saturday, following the seizure of two truckloads of cherries by B.C.

"We won't be content until we get Supreme Court said Mr. Hume. Under current B.C. legisla- tion, the fruit board, the sole Mr. Taylor, who came here to! agent for the B.C. Fruit Grow- watch part of the sale in the I ers' Association, controls all Gastown district, said the board is taking further legal steps to bring the dispute into court, following an exchange of injunctions last week with Okanagan Growers Ltd. of Okanagan Centre, B.C. "We knew ft would bring le- gal said Allied chair- man Bert Hume. "For the first time we will be able to get this into the courts and get it de- cided in proper ways. "We are challenging the val- idity of the very foundation of the fruit board's marketing scheme and we can only do that in the Supreme Court. This we are prepared to do." Hans Rhenisch, president of United Fruit Growers Ltd., the second breakaway group to or- ganize illegal sales here, said the rebel growers want a new fruit marketing association. "We don't want to do this all cherry sales through its mar- keting arm, B.C. Tree Fruits Ltd. The legislation empowers the board to seize and dispose of any fruit sold outside its mar- keting structure. Kelowna lawyer Clay Law- son, acting for Allied and Uni- ted, said Sunday he expects both his clients and the board to be in court this week with applications to have each oth- er's injunctions lifted. Allied obtained an injunction Thursday ordering the board to stop interfering with Allied's operations, to return 10 tons of cherries the board seized at Allied's Okanagan centre pack- ing house and to stop seizing cherries.

(CP) A mother and three children from Duchess, survivors of a vehicle crash Friday that killed the father and two other chil- dren are recovering in hospital here from multiple injuries suf- fered in the accident.

Gail Swanson and sons Kevin, 10. and Terry, 12, were listed in satisfactory condition Sunday, while two-year-old Penny Swan- son was in fair condition. They were in a converted school bus that collided Friday with an empty logging truck 12 miles east of Cranbrook.

Mr- Larson said the legality of the board's seizure of cherries early Saturday morning would be determined by a judge, probably on Wednesday. Mr. Taylor said information for three charges were laid in connection with a convoy that brought cherries to Vancouver the week before. He said charges will probably be laid in connection with the two sei- zures Saturday. Mr. Hume said legal action will be started to recover the value of 466 20-pound boxes of Allied cherries sold by the board between the granting of Allied's injunction and the sei- zure: He said Allied, expecting 15 cents a pound from the board for the sale, is demanding 35 cents a pound. Allied cherries were sold here Sunday for 40 cents a pound. Mr. Hume said the price would return about 25 cents a pound, the cost of pro- duction for the northern Okana- gan cherries, to the grower and would cover packing and transportation costs. He said the cherries were graded to federal standards, al- though not to the standards of the fruit boards, whose inspec- tors earlier in the week refused to officially grade the cherries. Democrats eye White House PRINCETON, N..J (AP) Senator Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts is the leading choice of Democrats for then1 party's 1976 presidential nomi- nation, the latest Gallup Poll shmvs. Kennedy was the first choice of 40 per cent of Democrats polled. Next was Gov. George Wallace of Alabama, selected by 16 per cent. Nine per cent of Democrats chose Senator Edmund Muskie of Maine for the nomination. The party's 1968 nominee, for- me r vice-president Hubert Humphrey, and the 1972 nomi nee. Senator George McGovern of South Dakota, each received eight per cent. Th poll also shows Kennedy defeating two possible Republi- can candidates. He was given 51 per cent of the vote to 38 per cent over Vice-president Spiro Agnew per cent to 36 per cent over former Treasury Sec- retary John Connally. The poll was based on a sur- vey of adult., but only the 659 who identified themselves as Democrats were used for the nomination choices. They were given a list of 13 Democrats mentioned as possible candi- dates and asked which they pre- ferred. They were also asked who Ted Kennedy Synod defrocks bishops NICOSIA (AP) The major synod of the Orthodox Church defrocked three dissident Cyprus bishops Saturday after convicting them of "punishable ecclesiastical offences" in their attempt to defrock President Makarios as Archbishop of the Cyprus Church. The decision increased the danger of politico-religious civil jwar among rival Greek-Cypriot .factions in the bitter feud be- the three bishops and Makarios. The bishops had pronounced z defrocking of Makarios, declar- ing his holding the presidency of a Mafitsrrsnean is1 End of Cyprus was incompatible his ecclesiastical dirties. Makarios refused to accept their ruling and called on the synod to arbitrate despite pro- tests from the three bishops 1hat they would rxxt recognize 'the synod's authority over the autonomous Cyprus Church, The synod comprises 16 of the nrost senior prelates of the Or- traodox Choreh. These include the patriarchs of Alexandria and AnUoch, other representa- tives from these tiro patri- archates, envoys of the patri- archate of Jerusalem, Makarios 'himself and another Cypriot j prelate. BACK TO THE 'FLOCK' The unanimous verdict was explained in a judgment which the synod imposed on the three bishops "the punishment of purging, stripping them com- pl- ely of aU reli''bus office and authorily and placing them hi the rank of the church's flock to which they belonged before their ordination." The three of Papbos, Ajvthimos of Kituum and Kyprianos of tried Makarks in absentia aod feucd him guilty of violating church law through the exercise of temporal power as president Axtthiznos rejected the synod's verdict as null and void. He said the synod had been con- vened illegally by and had no right to interfere in the aflsirs of the Cyprus Church. The religious quarrel was shadowed from the beginning (by politics. The three are stench supporters of Gen. George Grivas, leader of the G r e e k-Cyprlot underground which had been waging a ter- rorist campaign to weJlljttw irorlalm union of Cyprus with Greece. though himself a Greek-Cypriot, opposes Grivas's campaign for union because he fears trouble from the deep op- position to union with Greece among the island's Turkish mi- nority. they would select if the choice were narrowed to Kennedy and Wallace or Kennedy and Mus- kie. In the head-to-head com- petition Kennedy received 71 per cent to 22 per cent for Wai lace and 64 per cent to 26 per cent for Muskie. The other candidates included and the percentage who chose them were: Senator Henry Jackson four. Senator Adlai Ste- venson three; New York Mayor John Lindsay two: Sargent Shriver two; Gov. Reubin Askew one. Senator Walter Mondale one. Senator William Proxraire one. Senator John Tunney one, no preference-no opinion nine. The total adds up to more than 100 per cent because some persons in the survey named more than one man.

Union president Homer Stev- ens said Sunday fishermen ap- proved the new two-year con tract by a vote of 82.7 per cent.
