Hockey player gets six months for death from Edmonton east and west. No other routes were involved. The company received permission two years ago for the increases. A typical increase is to from between Calgary and Edmonton, he said, adding that fuel prices went up 39 per cent in the last few months to make the increase necessary. Ont. (CP) Paul Douglas Smithers, 17, convicted of manslaughter in the death of an opposing midget team hockey player in Mississauga, Ont., was sentenced Tuesday to six months in the adult training centre here. Peel County court Judge B. B. Shapiro also sentenced Smithers to two years probation following his release from custody. After passing sentence the judge remarked that the sen- tence would have been more if there had been no racial slurs involved in the incident and if the jury had not recommended a light sentence. Barrie Ross Cobby, 17, of Mississauga, died from injuries he suffered in a fight with Smithers after a hockey game. During Smithers's trial, evi- dence showed that Smithers, who is black, was subject to racial slurs from Cobby, who was white, and spectators during the game. Evidence showed Smithers had been called a "coon" and "dirty black bas- tard" at the Feb. 18, 1973, game. MOTHER IN TEARS Following the sentence Mrs. Donald Smithers, the convited youth's white mother, burst into tears. Mr. Smithers later told reporters he thought it was a fair sentence. He said however the conviction would be appealed. Following newspaper reports of a planned demonstration by two Toronto-based groups, sev- eral uniformed and plainclothes police were stationed inside and outside the jammed courtroom. Smithers was whisked away by police after the sentence without getting a chance to speak to his parents. Police said they did this in view of the demonstration and offered to drive his parents to the Brampton jail. The judge warned Smithers that remarks he made at a May 28 meeting in Toronto could have adversely affected his sentence. Defence Counsel Arthur Maloney had asked the judge to consider a suspended sentence. He said Smithers had suffered remorse and grief and quoted from a Christmas card sent Smithers by Cobby's mother in which she refers to Cobby in "loved" and "profound sleep." "Imagine the effect of this card on Mr. Malo- ney told the judge. "Every blow struck out at the dignity of this accused must be taken into account." Crown Attorney John F. Greenwood entered as exhibits a flyer about the May 28 meeting and newspaper reports including one which quoted Smithers as saying that the conviction would be overturned by a higher court if enough people were behind him. "Before the court can be compassionate there has to be some recognition by the ac- cused that what he did was Mr. Greenwood said. Judge Shapiro lashed out at the way hockey is played in Canada. "Maybe we should have legalized he said. With all the foul language used at a game, it was not a decent place for someone to take his children. He was critical of objections voiced at the Toronto meeting that the trial was "a racist frame-up" and asked how people not present at the trial could say such a thing He said he had remanded Smithers out of custody for more than a month and Smi- thers misused these privileges when he attended the Toronto meeting and commented about the case. Nixon's No. 2 man in jail LEWISBURG, Pa. (AP) Jeb Stuart Magruder, No. 2 man in President Nixon's 1972 re-election campaign, entered a minimum-security federal prison near here Tuesday to begin serving a sentence for conspiracy in the Watergate case. Magruder, the sixth former White House employee sent to prison in connection with the Watergate political espionage scandal, told reporters he will devote his prison term to "philosophy and theology more than anything else." Magruder pleaded guilty last August to one count of conspiracy to obstruct justice and defraud the United States. U.S. District Court Judge John Sirica sentenced Magruder on May 20 to a term of from 10 months to four years The maximum sentence would have been five years in prison and a fine.

Consumer support promised CALGARY (CP) Bob Dowling, Alberta minister of consumer affairs, said Tuesday night his department will increase its financial support to the Alberta division of the consumers' Association of Canada. The minister, however, did not give details of the financial support. "Mr. Dowling didn't tell me what sort of financial support we'll be getting from his said Dorothy Robertson of Calgary, provincial president of the association. Mr. Dowling cut short his stay at a banquet which his department hosted for delegates to the association's 27th annual meeting. He said he had to hurry back to Edmonton to attend a night session of the Alberta legislature. He indicated that "extra money will be channelled for the most part into programs of consumer education and information." Mr. Dowling told delegates that he is a believer in the free enterprise system and his department's stated goal is to help ensure "a fair marketplace." Our long term objective is to bring in a legislative package which would create a preventive situation rather than a punitive one." Irish favor integration with Britain BELFAST
