Pat bought the bike a month ago and then spent a week learning how to ride if before venturing out with his paper bog. Mr. Stanfield said endorsation of a mere resolution would not do much to increase support for institutional bilingualism in the country. The principles were fine, but the resolution did not legally bind the government to them. That was why the Con- servatives wanted the amend- ment. INCREASE FRENCH The principles, adopted by the government late last year, say knowledge of English and French is one of the elements of merit in the selection of candi- dates for bilingual government jobs. Also, job competitions would be open to unilingual candidates willing to become bilingual. Employees who in April, 1966, had 10 years continuous service would be entitled to apply for any bilingual job without having to indicate willingness to be- come bilingual. The resolution also deals with measures to increase the use of French in the public service and to enhance the careers o! Drench-speaking civil servants. Mr. Trudeau said the govern- ment, in a fair and just way, is rying to create a public service based on a true partnership be- ween the two main language groups.

Yet despite the fact that it can use cheaper labor, IGA food prices are the same as in any of the big supermarket 1 chains, James McGrath St. John's East) told the special Commons food price committee. President Harold Knifton and vice-president M. H. Coulson of the Toronto-based company, the first of the country's big food retailers to appear before the committee, denied the sugges- tion. Charges that IGA poses as a group of independent stores when it is in essence, like any other chain, would be "vehemently denied" by the 746 retailers who own IGA stores in Canada, Mr. Knifton said. Earlier, he told Ron Atkey St. Paul's) that IGA was effectively owned by three wholesale Loeb Ltd. of Ottawa, Oshawa Group Ltd. of Toronto, and H. Y. Louis Co, Ltd. of Vancouver. Mr. Knifton admitted that since IGA labor was not union- i z c d it was "somewhat cheaper'' than other stores had to pay. Tn many cases, a retai- ler would have his wife and children working for him. He described a typical IGA store as having about to 6.000 square feat of space, as costing about to equip and slock and with an average in sales a week. OTTAWA (CP) John Lun- j drigan (PC Gaoder-Twillin- wlo caused an uproar in the Commons Monday by calling Environment Minister Jack Davis a liar, withdrew the word Thursday although not the substance of what he said. But he was compensated by having the House agree to study a long-standing rule that prevents MPs from comment- ing on statements made by members outside the Com- mons. The matter flared up Mon- day when Mr. Lundrigan said Mr. Dam lied to a New Bruns- wick audience last weekend by saying the Conservative party favors a 50-mile offshore fish- ing limit while the Liberals favor a 200-mile limit. The remark was ruled un- parliamentary by Speaker Lu- cien Lamoureux but he left a ruling in abeyance to ponder the separate question involving statements made outside the House. In the meantime, party House leaders got together and agreed to recommend that the question be studied by the Com- mons committee on procedure and organization. Conservative House Leader Gerald Baldwin said a serious problem has been created by progress in communications which brings increasing import- ance to outside statements, es- pecially by cabinet ministers. Stanley Knowles, NDP House added, neither the resolution, DOT the Official Lan- guages Act win make sense un- ess both English and French 'eel at home in all parts of the :ountry and all work together o make a nation of two official anguages and many cultures.

"It becomes a bit of s farce.'' They were joined by Andre Fortin SC-Lotbiniere in urging Mr. Lamoureux to accept a mo- tion sending the matter to com mittee. The Speaker, agreed and the motion was approved Mr. Lundrigan said the deci sion came as "a bit of a sur prise" bfccause he had no par in negotiations by House lead ers and he was informed o their agreement only minutes before tbe Commons sat. A century ago. the rule may have had merit, he said, but to- day many statements made outside the Commons are more important than those made in- side. In retracting his charge against Mr. Davis, he conceded he may have used unparlia- mentary language. But he qualified the with- drawal by saying he would never condone any member "for not being honest with the Canadian people." Mr. Davis said Monday the statements of various Con- servative spokesmen were the source of his information on the 50-mile fishing limit. Mr. Lun- drigan called the 50-mile refer- ence a complete fabrication. the large gap between its in- tentions and the understanding of the people. There also was a lack of concern for the appre- hensions of persons in the serv- ice who did not fully understand the program. Much of the resentment, an- ger and other emotions stirred up by bilingualism had been caused by the government. The fact that the Liberals did said Mr. Peacock. "If we are going to promote tourism and industry in the area, we've got to have an air- port. We are in the process of negotiating." A small airfield now is locat- ed a few miles west of Hinton. Mr. Peacock said Edmonton businessmen hold rights to oc- cupy the land and are seeking about more than the provincial government is pre- pared to pay.

Zambia has said that Christ- ine Sinclair of Guelph, Ont., and Marjan Drijber of Rockwood, Ont., both 19, were thought to be heading for a Zambian power station when they were spotted on the Rhodesian side of the Zambezi River, which sepa- rates tihe two African states. Mr. Sharp said Mr. Leith re- ported that a Rhodesian police report said Miss Sinclair's body and clothes were not wet when she was found. Also, there was nothing to indicate she had aijy waterproof clothing or equip- ment. That would indicate the girls had no intention of crossing the river. Miss Drijber's body fell into the river and has not been found. To reach the power station would have entailed swimming the river. The shooting from Zambian soldiers was directed at three locations along river, said Mr. Sharp, and more than one gun was used. He added that he still is not satisfied with Zambian ex- planations of the incident and the government will press for a more acceptable response. Mr. Wagner said this report should be investigated by the external affairs department. SUNR7JSE SATURDAY SUNSET H L Pre.
