'ower failure lits Quebec MONTREAL (CP) A huge power failure that blacked out most of western Quebec at p.m. EDT Friday night may lave been caused by a bolt of ightning striking a transmis- sion line from the Manicouagan project in northern Quebec, Hydro-Quebec officials said early today. But nobody is certain yet what caused the province's sec- md such power failure in less than a month. The area affected by the power failure extended from Chicoutimi and Quebec City as far west as the Ontario border, through snerbrooke, Dnun- mondville, Valleyfield and much of Montreal and the surrounding suburbs. STREETS JAMMED As power went out on down- town Montreal streets crowded with Friday night shoppers, vio- lent storms were tearing through the Ottawa and Quebec City areas. In Ottawa, wind-driven hall and ram tore down power lines, trees and smashed windows. Winds of more than 30 miles an hour battered the capital for more than an hour before the storm moved on. CAPE KENNEDY, Fla. (AP) With two days to go before they head for the moon, the Apollo 15 astronauts planned to relax this weekend. But their idea of rest could te a jet flight, a fast tennis game or a practice session in spacecraft simula- tors. All three were possibilities as the countdown ticked toward the launching of the giant Saturn V rocket at a.m. EDT Mon- day. The National Aeronautics and Space Adminisrtation said the astronauts completed all sched- uled training activities Friday and that they were free this weekend to do as they please, within the limits of a medical isolation that confines them to three areas at Cape Kennedy and restricts their contacts with other persons. But David R. Scott, James B. Irwin and Alfred M. Worden are active men. And it is likely they will be busy. NASA said the spaceship Simula tors were being kept on standby for any 'ore a busy simulator schedule Friday, Worden and Irwin played tennis for an hour on the court behind their crew quart- ers. WIVES VISIT Ann Lurton Scott and Mary Ellen Irwin visited their hus- bands with their children Fri- day night, as did the two daugh- ters of Worden, who is divorced. Because of the medical isola- tion, they visited through a glass partition. Other visits are expected during the weekend. The wives are among those authorized to see the astronauts in the crew quarters, but they say they don't want to chance passing on any diseases. "I've had all the shots, the Mrs. Irwin said. final practice runs the crew might want to make. The medical isolation permits them to drive to nearby Patrick Air Force Base to make profi- ciency flights in T-38 jets or in helicopters. They flew the jets last weekend.

At the launch pad, the count- down, which started Tuesday, continued on schedule. During the night, crews loaded super- cold liquid hydrogen and liquid oxygen aboard the power-pro- ducing fuel cells. Scott and Irwin are to spend a record 67 hours on the lunar sin-face, driving their moon rover among mountains, craters and a canyon in a search for clues to the origin of the moon, the earth and the solar system. MIAMI, Fla. (AP) A Na- tional Airlines DC-8 jetliner carrying 76 passengers and a crew of seven from Miami to Jacksonville was hijacked to Cuba today. Martha Bagby, a National spokesman, said the plane Flight 183 landed in Havana at a.m. EDT. She said the airline had no details about the hijacking. Miss Bagby identified the crew members as Capt. Joe Watson, First Officer John Sla- ton, Second Officer Bill Johnson and stewardesses Michelle Hardy, Sue Bond, Carol Baldwin and Sara Ware. Students have choice of schools TABER (HNS) A policy covering the transfer of stu- dents between separate and public schools in Taber has been established by Taber School Division No. 6 and Taber Roman Catholic Separate School District No. 54. The basic premiss is that all Roman Catholic children will attend the separate schools, and all non-Catholics will attend a public school. How- ever, there may be individuals whose needs can be better served by attending the other Refugees stream from Pakistan Power pledge made by Notley school.

RYCROFT (CP) Power should be publicly owned in Al- berta and if the New Demo- cratic Party holds the balance of power after the Aug. 30 gen- eral election this will be one of the bargaining points, provin- cial leader Grant Notley said today. Mr. Notley told an NDP work- ers meeting that during the last 10 years private power has cost the people of Alberta at least million due to profiteering by private power monopolies. In 1968, the three private power companies in the prov- ince made a net profit of million. Mr. Notley said that in 1948, the Sodal Credit government had promised Alberta farmers power at cost but rates in the province are 21 per cent above the Canadian average. He said a unified public utili- ty system could plan the judi- cious use of Alberta energy re- sources, eliminate much of the duplication of administration and be tied Into a long range industrial development pro- gram. Alberta was the only province west of New Brunswick with private power. A summary of Mr- Notley's allowed to transfer between public and separate schools only during the summer months. Application must be made in writing, and will be considered by a committee composed of the principals of the two schools Involved and the school superintendent. Upon registration in Septem- ber (or on August 31 under the modified school each stu- dent must indicate his reli- gious affiliation. Catholic stu- dents attending public schools, and non-Catholics at separate schools, must be reported to a committee comprising two principals involved and the su- perintendent. The committee will assess the reasons for the student's attendance at the school of his choice, and will rule on wheth- er or not the student may con- tinue in attendance at that school- Tuition fees of per stu- dent will be charged to non- resident students. speech was released prior delivery.

GOPALPUR (Renter) A huge exodus of refugees was streaming today from central districts of East Pakistan to the Indian state of West Bengal. This reporter reached Gopal- pur, an area of East Pakistan countryside about 70 miles northeast of Calcutta, by walk- ing about three miles through West Bengal rice and jute fields and jungle groves. What I saw, combined with the evidence of a previous visit, appeared to confirm that Indian intelligence reports were not un- reasonable in estimating that to refugees are marching toward India from Barisal, a southern central dis- trict of East Pakistan, and Far- idpur, a central district. The current influx to West Bengal is from deep inside East Pakistan, and the refugee exo- dus to Tripisra, on East Paki- stan's eastern border, has been almost dnitrely Moslem during the last month. The new wave of refugees wil' put severe pressure on Wesl Bengal, which has already re- ceived more than 5.3 million refugees. THOUSANDS FLEE Tens of thousands of refugees were seen moving down the main road from the Indian town of Boyra toward Calcutta, the West Bengal oppital. Refugees said hundreds o thousands of East Pakistanis were heading towards the In dian border. Today, there was a large number of Moslems among the mainly Hindu refugees. Many of guided by young Moslem mem- bers of the banned Awami League, who disappeared shortly before reaching the bor- der. rife. He said many houses In he town were burned and sev- eral hundred people were killed. Colder said the 'peace committee" had guided the Pakistan army to houses of members of the banned Awami League and of Hindus. Indian school post filled at Gleichen CALGARY (CP) J. K.
