The rising Fraser flooded some low lying areas near Prince George in central B.C. and in the Fraser Valley east of here, but there was no indi- cation of any major crisis as yet. Several families were report- ed evacuated in the Langley area 25 miles east of here and fanners were moving livestock to higher ground, but Ian Faulkner, secretary of the emergency flood control com- mittee, said the situation had not reached the emergency stage. Areas of Cottonwood Island, a low lying suburb of Prince George situated at the junction of the Fraser and Netchako Rivers, and of South Fort George, another suburb, suffer- ed some minor flooding. No evacuations were reported and property damage apparently was minor. Mines Minister Frank Rich- ter paid a short visit Thursday to the interior community of Keremeos, centre of an area about 200 miles east of here which has suffered flooding since Monday. Mr. Richter met with Kere- meos Mayor Stan Pollard and other village officials to discuss the situation, which has eased considerably since the Similka- meen. and its tributary streams caused some evacuations and property damage earlier in the week. The easing of the flood threat along the Similkameen brought relief to hundreds of weary work crews, many of them vol- unteers, who hauled gravel and filled sandbags to shore up weak points in the system of dikes protecting centres such as Princeton, Hedley and Caw- ston. Most property damage was caused by water seeping through the dikes. lawyers noticed JASPER (CP) Lawyers Erom two provinces Thursday balked at the suggestion they be required to participate in compulsory retraining and dis- played sharp differences on the subject of specialization within the profession. It was a panel discussion at the meeting of the B.C. and Al- berta branches of the Canadian Bar Association and the Law Societies of Alberta and B.C. More than 800 persons are attending. Sholto Hebenon of Vancouver said it is academic to talk about getting rid of incompetent law- yers when there is no rigorous system for testing students when they enter the profession. A member of the audience asked what would be the sub- ject matter for retraining courses, suggesting that many lawyers tend to restrict their activities to one area of the law and could not be expected to take a general refresher course. Bob Guile of Vancouver said specialization does exist and the problem is providing the in- formation to the public and controlling the specialists. DOUBLE DECKER A doubledecker b us is unloaded at Vancouver Thursday after a trip from Liverpool. Four of the vehicles are being shipped to Victoria, bringing the city's doubledecker total to nine. (CP Wircphoto) Dangerous' Flying Phil drives like maniac' (CP) An RCMP officer said rehabilita- tion minister Phil Gaglardi drove like "a bloody maniac" as the British Columbia cabinet cavalcade sped here from Prince George. The unidentified officer made the blunt comment after Mr. Gaglardi, passing a truck on a hill, refused to pull over for an oncoming car and forced it off the road. "I was born dangerous, I live dangerous and I'm going to die the minister said when asked Thursday about his driving. Attorney-general Leslie Pet- erson admitted he was concern- ed about the speed with which Premier W. A. C. Bennett and his cabinet are driving on a tour of the province. About four vehicles were passing the truck when another car canie around the curve. In- stead of pulling in behind the truck, Mr. Gaglardi acceler- ated his rented car and passed it, forcing the oncoming car to the shoulder of the road in a cloud of dust and gravel "Convoys are a dangerous way of Mr. Peter- son said later. 6It's not that Canadians are poorer' By GREG McINTYRE Legislative Bureau EDMONTON It would be illegal for non-Canadians to buy public land in Alberta under a bill sent to a legislative com- mittee for study Thursday. The bill an amendment to the Public Lands Act if ap- proved by the committee on for- eign ownership and passed into law, would limit -both the sale and resale of crown land, cur- rently estimated at two-thirds of the province. The proposal was hailed by both sides of the legislature as a significant step to meet growing public concern about foreign particularily Ameri- can control of land and in- dustry in Canada. However, at least one MLA felt the measure is already too late. Ron Ghitter, (PC Calgary said "nearly every major block of commercial property in downtown Calgary, for instance, is already owned by foreign capital mainly Dutch and British." Mr. Ghitter, a member of the ownership committee, declined to speculate whether the bill will be followed by measures to prohibit the sale of private and, as well as public land. Announcing the bill in the House, Lands and Forests Min- ister Allan Warrack said the foreign ownership issue is now in the hands of the commit- tee headed by Julian COMING JUNE 10 LEB. Kozlak, (PC Edmonton to report bade to the legislature by Spring 1973. Outside the House, Dr. War- rack said there is a strong feel- ing among Albertans that the present public lands "the best recreation lands are pub- lic" must be kept in the hands of Canadians. Current government policy prohibits the sale of crown land to non-Canadians but does not limit its resale by Canadians to foreigners. If passed, the bill would write Into law the prohibition on both the sale and resale of public land to non-Canadians. Charles Drain (SC Pincher Creek-Crowsnest) praised the bilL "There should be some In- ducements such as the bill for Canadians, some priority given Canadian he said. "It's not that Canadians are poorer, but that Americans are so much more numerous and have so much more capital." More measures protecting and encouraging Canadian con- trol of the local economy will be required in the'future as the pressures of American money and population on Alberta in- creases, he said. Ted Hinman, (SC Card- foresaw no problems. "It is not he said, "and it concerns public land, so people won't be com- plaining about restrictions on their chances to sell land at high prices." The bill would prohibit the sale of crown land "to a person who is not a Canadian citizen, or a corporation that is not a Canadian corporation, or a per- son or corporation acting as a trustee for a person who is not a Canadian citizen or a cor- poration that is not a Canadian corporation." A Canadian corporation was defined as one with not less than 75 per cent of voting shares in the hands of Cana- dian citizens. Dr. Warrack stressed that the bill would restrict the sale of land to Canadians, rather than just to Albertans. The Saskatchewan legisla- ture is considering a bill that would limit the sale of land just to Saskatchewan residents. Meteorite comes home EDMONTON (CP) A 386- pound meteorite which smash- ed into Alberta untold ages ago is to return soon after an ab- sence of about 100 years. Horst Schmid, minister of culture, youth and recreation, said the Iron Creek meteorite, or the Manitou Stone as it's also known, will be on display at the provincial museum and archives in Edmonton.

A. C. B e n n e 11 announced Thursday the provincial gov- ernment will cancel succession Schreyer sidesteps adroitly WINNIPEG (CP) The pos- sibility of Premier Ed Schreyer touching off an explosive battle on the long-standing question of tax aid to Manitoba's denomina- tional schools was diminished Thursday when the premier moved to refer the matter to a legislative committee. The New Democratic Party premier, a staunch proponent of such aid, cited a need for more public information on the sub- ject in placing before the legis- lature a resolution asking for an all-party committee to study the thorny issue. The move, condemned by the Opposition Conservatives as an attempt by .the premier to sluff off responsibility, follows months of speculation about how Mr. Schreyer would deal with the issue in the face of strong opposition from within the ranks of his own party. Manitoba's 50-odd private and denominational schools now are without direct tax aid, although under a shared-services pro- gram Implemented in 1965 they are allowed use of certain avail- able public school facilities. Mr. Schreyer vowed last year to have the matter dealt with by the legislature in its current session, and it was expected that a private member's bill or resolution proposing immediate broadening of aid would be forthcoming. duties and gift taxes at the next session of the legislature in or- der to build up capital in tht hands of British Columbians. As part of a five-point finan- cial assistance program which he referred to as the Kelowna Charter 1972, the premier an- nouneed a provincial supple- mentary allowance to senior citizens. In addition, there will be an increase in B.C. social assis- tance benefits to people who are handicapped through age, mental or physical disability. Mr. Bennett also said the minimum wage scale in the province will be increased from an hour but he did not specify by how much. Speaking to a luncheon of the Kelowna Chamber of Com- merce, he said social assis- tance to high school- and uni- versity-aged youth for training on the .job through an employ- ees' subsidy will be instituted by the government sharing in the payment of wages and sal' aries. The premier also talked about the government's an- nounced intention to form a new crown corporation, the B.C. Development Corp., which will supply low-interest loans for the processing of farm products and secondary manu- facturing.
