A request for bail for Rose pending an appeal against his conviction was postponed Fri- day until today so that sentence could be pronounced first It is. scheduled to be heard in Que- bec Court of Appeal. Rose is to be sentenced for being an accessory after the fact of the October, 1970, kidnap of Pierre Laporte, then Quebec labor minister. He was con- victed last week of being an ac- cessory in the kidnap by help- ing his brother Paul to avoid capture. Paul Rose now is serving life terms for Mr. Laporte's kidnap and murder. Jacques Rose faces a maximum sentence of 14 years. Crown Prosecutor Guy Dupre reminded Mr. Justice Mathieu that the bail bearing was to be held today. The judge said, however, that he had to decide between a one- hour sentence and a 14-year term .and be did not want to "throw out a sentence without rhyme or reason." Rose, 26, raised a clenched fist end shouted "power to the people" as ha was brought into the crowded courtroom. He sat smiling quietly throughout the one-hour session. Defence lawyer Robert Le- mJeux, himself free on bail pending a hearing today on nine contempt of court citations in connection with 'Rose's trial, was interrupted by the judge several times as he read his two page presentence argu- "Mr. the judge said, "if you have nothing serious to say, sit down ar- gue tte sentence or sit down. We have no intention of listen- ing to you aU day." Mr. Lemieux said he could wit make any recommendations for a sentence in the case which he described as unique because the criminal Code does not say that trying to avoid arrest is a criminal act. "Legally, H is a duty to try to avoid one's own he said. Rose was acquitted Tuesday on three other related charges. He also has been acquitted at earlier trials of the kidnap and murder of Mr. Laporte. Paul Rose is serving two con- current life terms for the kid- napping and murder of- Laporte. Francis Simard was sentenced to life for murder and Bernard Lords was given a 20-year sentence for kidnapping.

Canadians learn to play ping pong at plus By JOHN BURNS Special To The Herald PEKING With the help of a federal grant of about and assistance from the Na- tional Pita Board that will cost the federal .taxpayer many thousands of dollars more, a group of 10 Canadian teenagers to hard at work in Peking learn- ing to play pfogpong. In a gesture as political as it was sporting the department of health and welfare dug into its Sports budget for the money to fry the teenagers half way around the world. And the film board, doing its bit to make the whoW thing pos- sibje, sent along a three-man crerw to film the trip- In the complicated fashion In which the Chinese sometimes handle these things the Cana- dian Table Tennis Association made no headway with .Its pro- posal that the teenagers travel to China for training until the filmmakers indicated that they, too, would like to make the move that turned a simple sporU exchange into a potentially rewarding propa- ganda exercise for the Chinese. While pingpong claims less than serious enthusiasts in Canada, film showing Canadian teenagers playing the sport in China held out the prospect of projecting a slice of Chinese life into cinemas right across Can- ada. And so the Chinese ap- proved the trip, cameras; and all. "We were said Jose Tomkins of Ottawa, the city's executive director, who is mak- ing the trip on one of the free roiBd-the-world passes that CP Air provides each year to ama- teur sports groups in Canada. "Without the film board's help I don't suppose we'd have made it. Other Canadians, told that federal sponsorship was re- quired to. get the pingpongers pingpong diplomacy, so we play across the Pacific, doubted that it was luck so much as Ot- tawa's eagerness to please Pe- king that made the trip pos- sible. "The name of the game is them said one diplo- mat. "If they wanted to play ftkHywinks we'd send them a squad of tiddlywintes too." Although still in the first days of their month-long tour, the teenagers have already dis- covered one of the principal reasons why China has domi- nated world pingpong for the past "It's a question of attitude more than anything said Paul Klevmas, a 15-year-old from Mississauga, who is cur- rent Junior Canadian champion. "When we play we often fool around, but not the Chinese kids. When they play they're al- ways dead serious. Another difference that has emerged during the training sessions is the superior physical conditioning of toe young Chi- nese, who have hardly worked up a sweat while their Canadian opponents begin to witt across the table, their long hair plas- tered to their, foreheads. The Chinese, as good as their word, have produced some-of their top coaches for the three- hour sessions, among them some of those who produced the Store cuts new image BARRIE, Ont. (CP) Only the Sears name will appear on a new department store opening here next week as the word Simpsons approaches the finale of a 21-year disappearing act.

The coaches have offered a host of .tips, including the need for more intensive training. But in the games that usually wind up the sessions the Chinese and Canadians usually come out even, a game apiece, a result achieved with a regularity that suggests that the Chinese youngsters may be being Just a little diplomatic. Next week they (Canadians) move on from Peking for a tour of Shenyang, Shanghai and on Friday, when they will play an exhibition match before a crowd of in Peking's prio- dpal indoor stadium. This being no Las Vegas, there are no offi- cidl DUE of pingpong diplomacy are call- ing well, a diplomatically inconclusive contest planning now in its final phase: The organizing group was started from scratch in Febru- ary and now numbers about 150, including various assist- ants, press officers and clerks.
