(AP) The countdown for Apollo 15, man's most ambitious moon mission, progressed smoothly today toward Monday's launch date. Through the night, the launch pad crews worked on the com- mand ship and lunar module and installed a glass-fibre cover designed to protect the com- mand vehicle during the upward thrust through the atmosphere on liftoff.

SC nominee given okay to campaign CALGARY (CP) missioners agreed City corn- Thursday that city solicitor Jay Salmon could campaign freely in the Aug. 30 election but hinted he might be wise to resign his post with the city if elected. Mr. Salmon has been nomi- nated by the Social Credil Party to contest the Calgary Foothills Hiding. Chief Commissioner Geoff Hamilton said there are no le- gal barriers to Mr. Salmon re- maining an employee of the city while sitting in the legisla- ture. "He must understand, how- ever, that he can no longer ex- pect immunity from political at- tack traditionally enjoyed by a non-political civil servant." The chief commissioner said Mr. Salmon's public expression of his political inclinations raises a difficult question of his ability to give impartial advice or to retain the confidence of the mayor, aldermen and com- missioners when .advising on sensitive issues involving the city and the province. Mr. Salmon had indicated he would conduct his campaign during six weeks of holidays due from the city. sentenced to jail for terms rang- ing from six months to seven years. About troops and police look part in today's dawn raids in mainly Roman Catholic dis- tricts. Security officials said the raids were the natural conse- quence of inquiries which have been in progress for some time, and that a number of docu- ments bad been seized. Some of the IRA suspects were believed to have slipped across the border into the Irish Republic before the search started. Army border patrols were strengthened to prevent the IRA smuggling explosives, arms and ammunition from "hot" centres in Ulster to the sanctuary of the Irish Republic. In Belfast, the search concen- trated on Roman Catholic areas which are known IRA strong- holds, among them Ardoyne, Falls, Bailymurphy, Springfield and Whiterock. All have been the centre of re- peated riots and late of bomb and machine-gun attacks on troops brought in two years ago to head off civil war between the Protestant majority and the Catholic, and largely pro-repub- lican, one-third of the popula- tion. SEARCH OTHER AREAS Outside the capital, raids were launched in Newry, Lur- gan, Portadown, Armagh, Dun- gannon, Coalisland and Cooks- town. A notable absentee from the list was Londonderry, Northern Ireland's second city and long- time flashpoint. Unofficial indi- cations, however, were that raids would follow there. An army statement said: "The policy of the security forces is not simply to contain riotous behavior, but to seek out and to subject to the rule of law those who take part in it and particularly those who foment and lead it." The action followed a night of clashes between troops and guerrilla gunmen, and riots in which troops arrested at least 11 persons. A British spokesman said pa- trols came under moderately heavy fire three times and twice replied. The only known casualties were two men with bullet wounds. One of them had been tarred and feathered, a tradi- tional IRA punishment for defectors. A bomb wrecked a fuel com- pany's office in downtown Bel- fast. Explosions in the city have caused an estimated million million) in damages in the last two weeks. MORLEY ICP) Native re- ligins once banned in Canada and the United States, are making a comeback at the In- dian ecumenical conference. Held on a cmapground 50 miles west of Calgary, repre- sentatives of most major North American tribes are discussing both Christianity and native religions. The conference was called Because of a growing concern for native youth, said Wilfred Pelletier of Toronto, a Bteering- committee member. Indians traditionally respect- ed their children as persons :rom the moment of birth, he said, and for that reason did not do such things as cut a child's hair but would wait for their offspring to decide. All of this changed with the arrival of explorers and early settlers. Children were sent at an STAMP HONORS ARTIST OTTAWA (CP) The posSj office will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Paul Kane, one of Canada's greatest pioneer artists, with the Aug. 11 issue of a seven- cent stamp bearing a reproduc- tion of his painting, Indian En- campment on Lake Huron.

Some delegates to the four- day conference expressed con- cern a rift was developing be- tween Indians who believe in Christianity and those following native teachings.
