(CP Wirephoto) Loggers picket sawmill VANCOUVER (CP) The dispute between- the fallers and the International Woodworkers of America erupted today as dissident fallers and sealers threw up picket lines at a num- ber of operations in tho Van- couver area. Chief target was MacMillan Bloedel operations. The grave- yard shift refused to cross the picket line and the huge Van- couver plywood plant was forc- ed to shut down. MacMillan Bloedel's Canadian White Pine Division was re- duced to half capacity by the action. Fallers' spokesman Chuck Evans said his men support the sealers' picketing. Under the new agreement between the coast forest com- panies and the some seal- ers will lose their jobs because the fallers now receive a set daily rate of pay. Previously, the tillers worked on a pricing arrangement for cutting down the trees. However, the contract guar- antees that the sealers will be placed on other jobs in the same operation. The fallers have vowed to dry up tho supply of logs and shut down coast operations to protest the day rate settle- ment out between the IWA and the companies. Company officials say about 300 of the 000 failers have re- turned since the agreement wns ratified. Falters' spokes- men put the figuro at between 40 and 50. A town? EDMONTON (CP) The North Saskatchewan Hlver was the site of all the speed Sunday but Jasper Avenue in the down- town area was the scene of leisurely stroll by a sea of cit- izens garbed In gay-M's attire. Climbers succeeded before death ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) The bodies of three missing Japanese women mountain climbers were found Saturday the level oE Al- aska's Mt McKinley. The three disappeared while making what was intended to be a final, quick dash to McKinley's sum- mit.

IDENTIFY MEN CALGARY (CP) Two men found in Ghost Lake have been identified as passengers in a light aircraft lhat failed to return from a night June 29. RCMP said Ihc men, localed Friday, were William George Fair. W, and Dr. Vernon Roy Kenning, 40, both of Calgary. Although showers were pre- dicted, Ihe sun broke through the clouds as an estimated 200, 000 persons, most in costume, gathered for the lOlh annual promenade event of the city's Klondike Days exposition. A garter here, a feather there, top hats and bowlers added to the usual clothing while olhers went all out in costumes so authentic that all that seemed to be missing were mud streets and board side- walks. There were long and short frilled gowns, bustles, capes, ruffles and parasols in rainbow colors; spats, fobs, sparkling vesls and velvet-trimmed jack- ets. There were prospectors with packs and picks, girls in lacy pantaloons and even one chap in a striped gay-90's bathing suit. The Klondike Jail was the centre of attraction where those not garbed in festive attire were imprisoned and bail set at one Klondike dollar. "Deputy sheriffs." Mayor Iv- or Dent, Health Minister Neil Crawford, Aid. Dudley Menzies, exhibition association presi- dent. Jack Bailey, and K-days reception committee chairman Sandy McArlhur were sworn in and enthusiastically attended their duties. One of those "arrested" was Wilfred Thomas of London, England, who tried desparately lo squeeze through the bars be- fore his turn for a bail call. When asked why he was in Edmonton, he said, "f came to see the colonies. I thought this was a swinging town I didn't know people here were so old- fashioned." Bob Bradburn, a local radio personality and Klondike judge, feigning anger, warned. 'see that rope over there? We are a swinging town." Unemploymenl Assurance- Insurance chomage Canada Canada TO: Cv5 Magrtfh Drive Village Complex Wafflers wonder what's what TORONTO (CP) Four members of the New Demo- cratic Party's Waffle faction nominated to run in the next federal election have disclosed they want lo resign their cand- idacies. They said in a letter to fellow Waffle members the party has shown its "indifference, if not its to Waffle mem- bers. The letter was signed by James Laxer, a Waffle leader 4 convicts missing KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) The search for four convicls still missing afler a July 10 breakout from Millhaven penitentiary continued during the weekend. Spokesmen for the provincial police and armed forces partici- pating in the hunt reported ac- tivity was confined mainly to roadblocks and patrols.

They go into the seventh game Tuesday with Fischer leading 3'z to V-i.

Mr. Laxer was nominated In the Toronto riding of York East, Mr. Watkins in the Toronto rid- ing of Parkdale, Mr. Gilks in Hamilton West and Mrs. Prepas in the Toronto riding of Trinity. Stephen Lewis, Ontario NDP leader, said if the four "want to form their own party and run as something else, then by all means they should go ahead." Mr. Lewis said he did rot know whether the Wafflers are planning lo run independently of the party and he declined to say whether he was disappointed that they don't want to repre- sent the NDP. Mr. Lewis said the four might reverse their decision if nest month's Waffle convention or the steering committees feel they should contest the ridings. GILKS IN QUANDRY Mr. Gilks said: "This isn't an out-and-out In- tention to resign our candida- cies. It's only an indication to our fellow members of the NDP of where we stand. "Personally, I'm in a quan- dary. I'm hoping we'll be able to have some discussion with the rest of the party. I'll also have to discuss tho situation with my riding association. "It's quite clear the NDP doesn't want the Waffle views now or in the foreseeable fu- ture. The letter said the four were slill committed to building an independent socialist Canada, to the right of self-determinalion for Quebec and to the liberation of women. Gordon Brigdon, NDP provin- cial secretary, said the four I candidates signed the letter arc the only Waffle supporters so far nominaled by the NDP to contest the next federal elec- tion.

Morley, a personal friend of Mr, Bell's for many years, said during a brief eulogy at Grace Presbyterian Church that Mr. Bell was an "empire builder." "But, he had the generosity of a little child." Dr. Morley said Mr. Bell, who rose from a news- paper business manager in 1936 to the point where he could have bought out the Hudson's Bay Co. in 1959, had faith and a "dimension of eternity without which a man cannot live." At his death Mr. Bell was chairman of the board of FP Publications, publisher of the Calgary Albertan, president of Sun Publishing Co. Ltd. and a ojreclor of CP Rail. A 50-car cavalcade carried the casket to its resting place at Okotoks, 15 miles south of Cal- gary, within sight of Mr. Bell's first love, the Golden West Farm and racing stable where he bred a famous line of, racing horses.

Officials said 31 of the 40 men doing maintenance work in the four-mile mine reached safety within minutes after the fire broke out. Tho bore hole was being drilled in an attempt to reach the men or pusiibly communi- cate with them. Failing that, of- ficials hoped to learn something about conditions In the mine 650 feet below the rolling hills of this West Virginia-Pennsylvania border community, HEAT INTENSE An official of the U.S. Bureau of Mines said temperatures In the immediate area of the fire probably were between and degrees. Corcoran said at a news con- ference he felt conditions for rescuing the trapped miners were not favorable. Rescue efforts have been hampered by the fire which con- tinues to burn in the soft coal veins. The fire started when a heavy piece of mining m a chin ery being relocated in the main cor- ridor about a mile from the elevator shaft hit a live electri- cal wire, generating sparks. The fire had been localized Sunday night In an area of about 400 square feet less than a mile from the mine entrance. Consolidation officials said.
