Mr. Horner Tooth decay to be hit by vaccine VANCOUVER (CP) A vac- cine to prevent tooth decay could be available within five years, Dr. Harold Hillenbrand, retired executive secretary of the American Dental Associa- tion, said Wednesday. The Chicago dentist, inter- viewed prior to a talk today to the College of Dental Surgeons of British Columbia, said re- searchers have been working on the development for seven years. Although the vaccine is still in the experimental stage it is not far from being per- fected, he said. The vaccine would preven growth of bacteria that cause tooth decay, explained Dr. Hil lenbrand. Police, city workers clash MONTREAL (CP) Police striking city manual workei and private garbage collector clashed overnight In east-en Montreal with fists and club swinging. About 150 striking blue-collar workers, 50 police and about dozen garbage collectors wer Involved in the battle whic broke out as the privatcly-ei ployed collectors tried to pic up trash. jse in the Commons on a ques- on of privilege after Norman afik had sug- !Sted that Progressive Con- Leader Robert Stan- eld deserved a medal for brav- ry for daring to turn his back n the Alberta MP. The slur even brought Mr. orner support from a totally nexpected quarter, that of New 'emocralic Party Leader David ewis. Mr. Lewis commented n Mr. Cafik's display of bad And the Incident caused an- ther MP, outside the Com- ons, to suggest what many jcople secretly if Ir. Cafik wasn't careful in fu- ure he'd be In danger of recetv- ng a quick punch on the nose rom Mr. Horner. The hassle occurred soon after Prime Minister Trudeau ad announced in the Commons modifications and additions to Canada's system of awarding lonors for bravery. Mr. Cafik suddenly rose to his ect and asked of the prime minister: wonder whether he vould give consideration to giv- ng such an award to the of the Opposition for laving lo sit with his back to he honorable member for It was obviously a reference o days past when Mr. Horner is nought to have been a leading iorce behind Western Conserva- live MPs who held closed-door meetings In Saskatchewan at which they assessed Mr. Stan, field's leadership. Mr. Stanfleld was not invited. The Commons Immediately broke into an uproar. ''Shame! roared number of MPs from the Oppo- sition benches. Shouted Tom Bell Up stood Mr. Stanfield who pointed out that he didn't consi der the remark In good taste. "1 do not think I am undid; sensitive, and I do not want tcnd at least 25 per cent more oney in Alberta this year than ey did last year. In an unexpectedly bold an- ouncement this week, the pro- ncial government objected to ie proposed million com- mercial development at Lake In Banlf National Park. In a letter from Alberta's Linister of federal and inter- ovemment affairs, Don federal minister responsible or parks, Jean Chretien, the rovince noted: No study has been done on le effect the developm e n t ould have on the environment; The park has not been zoned iroperly; The project Is so large that il would create an "undue con- cantration" of people; And the proposal does not in elude accommodation for broad enough variety of Income evel users. Mr. Bowling said the Villa g. Lake Louise project will very likely go ahead soon in a modi ;ied form. The provincial governmen offered to work with the feder al government to fit Villag' Lake Louise into an overal recreation plan for Alberta. It was unfortunate, said Mr. Dowling, the federal parks branch and the developer did not consult wilh the province and large conservation and recreation groups before put- ting Village Lake Louise for- ward. Prior consultation could have prevented the "witness stand" atmosphere of confrontation that developed during federal government sponsored public hearings, he said, The Alberta g o v ernment, which declined to appear at the hearings at Calgary, has now proposed Banff and Jasper he y way of a transportation cor- idor. While recreation facilities are adly needed at Banff, Mr. fowling said the Village Lake jouise project is a small factor n the overall tourist industry his year. Revenues from tourism will n crease by at least one-quar- er this year and by 1980 tourist accommodation in c 1 u ding highways, hotel and motel and camp lave tripled, he said. He described as an excellent idea, a recommendation ap- proved by the legislature this year, that provincial parks be developed within the bound- aries of towns and cities. The proposal will be consid- ered in an overall park plan to be completed in about two years, and could result in pro- vincial government assistance to municipalities to develop local parks.

In Montreal for the third an- nual Canadian computer show, sponsored by the society, Mr. Kennedy said today that until recently machine usage was the major cost factor. "Therefore companies would spend their time pro- grammers find ways of doing the job so as to use less mat- chine Another area of importance to computer technology is the de- velopment of cross-country net- works linking computer services together, Mr. Kennedy said. The question of such a net- work currently is being studied by a federal communications department task force, he said, adding that a reoort Is expected shortly. George Fierheller, president of the Toronto-based Systems Dimensions Ltd., and a former president of the society, esti- mated that by the 1980s the computer industry may he the largest corporate sector in Ihe economy.
