New expanded terms of reference for the program had been developed during the two-day conference and these would receive further examination from RCMP employees across the country. The meeting also had re- solved problems involving overtime which have plagued the force. A system of overtime com- pensation would begin this fall. Earlier in the day, RCMP employees received some other good news. Regular members of the force will get pay increases of 10.5 per cent retroactive to April 1. The increase would raise the pay of senior constables to from Other ranks are to receive similar increases. There also will be improve- ments in long-service pay and in special clothing allowances.

Fulbnght's crushing defeat by Gov. Dale Bumpers in the Democratic primary in Ar- kansas will bring changes in the committee's leadership and tone. Whether it will also bring changes in substance depends on an intricate set of factors now being weighed by officials and foreign embassies here. When a new Congress takes over next January, the chair- man of the foreign relations committee is expected to be 74-year-old Senator John Sparkman, a drowsy Alabama Democrat whose career peaked when he was Adlai Stevenson's vice-presidential running-mate in 1952 against 3wight Eisenhower and Richard Nixon. NAKED WHITE TRIBE SPOTTED IN JUNGLE RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuter) A tribe of naked, white- skinned and blue-eyed persons has been spotted by an explorer in the northwestern Amazonian jungles of Brazil, a report by the National Indian Foundation (FUNAI) said Friday. FUNAI ordered the dispatch of an expedition to the area and also arranged for an aircraft to fly over the region where vet- eran Amazon explorer Raimundo Alves made his discovery, FUNAI sources said. Alves found eight of the tribe bathing in a tributary of the Amazon after scouring the area for a month. He had received hints from other tribes. Alves reported that the newly-found group also have chestnut brown hair and most go about completely naked. The white-skinned tribe has been estimated by Alves to number about 100. He said their customs are primitive. Police probe ordered Where Fulbright has been frequently an acid-tongued ad- versary of presidents and scourge of secretaries of state, Sparkman has been their faithful supporter. That fact alone should bring some change, but other factors must be considered. EXERCISED POWER The chairman of a congres- sional committee has enormous influence on the workings of the whole committee, as Fulbright amply demonstrated. But the other 16 members of the Senate committee, drawn overwhelmingly from the lib- eral wings of both Democratic and Republican parties, are generally ambitious and vigorous. If they see their influence slipping as a result of Sparkman's leadership, they are likely to fight back. The White House and state department have most of the authority, under the U.S. Con- stitution, to conduct American TORONTO citor General George Kerr ordered an inquiry Thursday into police conduct in a controversial drug raid on a Fort Erie, Ont., nightspot but said Ontario's Niagara area is turning into a haven for United States drug addicts. Mr. Kerr said in an interview the May 11 raid on the Landmark Motor Inn in which 115 patrons were 43 who had to was justified but it had shown police need stricter rules on how to govern themselves. He told the legislature he has asked the Ontario Police Commission to find out why all 36 women in the hotel were required to strip. "I must question the judg- ment of those who felt that all of these women should be ex- amined in this he said. Mr. Kerr denied the women were given physical vaginal and rectal searches. He said they were examined in a washroom in pairs by two policewomen and with one ex- ception were not touched or handled physically. "The one young lady who did object was not forced to disrobe completely and was let go following a visual check." Mr. Kerr said he could give no guarantees that the commission will hold a public inquiry but he will urge that part of the hearings be open. Members of the public could appear and be accompanied by counsel. The commission will study "whether the blanket police authority to search all persons found on the premises should be the subject of further regu- lation, either by legislation or by way of guidelines set down by the Ontario Police Commission." foreign policy. The Senate is given the right to "advise and consent" on treaties and am- bassadorial nominations and the whole Congress can limit the president's foreign-policy activities in other ways. One of Fulbright's main achievements was to remind Congress of its responsibilities in foreign affairs and to personify the fight to recapture a con- gressional role in that field. Although Fulbright was an early supporter of American involvement in was instrumental in getting the now-discredited Gulf of Tonkin resolution tHrough 69-year-old former university president from Arkansas turned harshly against the war in the mid- 1960s His committee's televised hearings on the war conferred unusual respectability on the anti-war movement and its spokesmen, and he helped coalesce the growing public sentiment against the American military presence in Southeast Asia. For several years after that, Fulbright remained a foreign-policy gadfly, examining and "criticizing American involvements around the world. More recently, with Nixon in- itiatives in Moscow and China and with State Secretary Henry Kissinger casting his spell, Fulbright had entered a honeymoon phase with his former adversaries in the administration. Sparkman has never been one to criticize the White House on foreign policy. Except for voting recently with the rest of Congress to curb the president's war- making powers, he has been a dependable backstop for the president of the day If Sparkman manages to as- sert dominance over his com- mittee in the next Congress, the U.S. faces a return to the placidly uncritical and bipartisan congressional position toward foreign policy which Fulbright helped to change. Footballers face charges CAMPBELL RIVER, B.C. (CP) Two members of British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League were charged here yesterday with causing a disturbance by fighting.
