Research Vital In Canada By TIIE CANADMN PRESS Rnin forecast lor today was expected to bring rnupli-needud relief lo men fighting an estimated 200 forest fires in northern Alberta and Saskatche- wan. Forestry officials said cool, damp weather Monday allowed firefighters to move up to the fire lines in northwestern Saskatchewan where 05 fires were burn- jug. Some of the fires had been brought under control. At noon today some rain in northern regions of both Alber- (a and Saskatchewan played a key rolD in allowing fire-Fight- ing crews lo gain control in many places. Most of the Fires in Saskatch- ewan were under control as 75 water bombers and helicopters as well as 30 bulldozers a sist ed men in fighting the Flames. There were unconfirmed re- ports that residents of Black Lake, 450 miles northwest ot Prince Albert, were returning to their homes aFter being evacu- ated Sunday. The residents had been living in tents and were being cared For by the Saskatchewan natural resources department. E s i i- mates of the population of Black Lake ranged From 250 to SCO. Fred Hewett, Saskatchewan forestry director, said Monday the Fire was two miles from the community but fire breaks had been built and there were hopes of saving the community.

Barry Hillman, one of sevei panelists attending a dnt seminar, organized by the A Marketing Of L-Dopa Sought Again OTTAWA (CP) A second application has been made ti federal authorites to market tin anti-Parkinson drug L-Dopa for use, it was learnet general today. The drug, under controllec tests in patients in this countrj for more than a year, is re ported to control the trembling and rigidity associated with the disease. The federal food and drug di rectorate began assessing application made May 22 for au thority to market the drug for general use. A second applies ion was filed Monday. The United S'ates food and drug authority authorized L- dopa for general use last week three months after application was made. Dr. Jeffrey Bishop, who head, Canadian directorate's drug ad visory bureau, said 17 doctors in 10 centres in the last two years have treated between 250 anc 300 patients with L-dopa im ported from the U.S. under spe- cial drug regulations. In addition, a Canadian dru; manufacturer has been conduct ing a series of tests in patients with authorization of the direc lorate. This is a normal proce- dure and one stage in the proc ess of testing and authorizing a drug for general use. Evidence of the clinical trial and the drug's effects in anima testing programs are submittec to the directorate in support o applications for general use.

"At the centre, all we are able to do is to give out infor- mation on the various drugs. But because so little research has been done on them, and what has been done is either contradictory or too inade- quate, we cannot come out ei- ther for or against any particu- lar drug." Panelist Dcloy Sallenback, public school board trustee, said: "Research must be d-me but it would be a mistake to le- galize drugs because we al- ready have a great many prob- lems with tobacco and liquor. "If we legalize marijuana all we would be doing is com- pounding an already large problem." He said drugs are a definite problem and young people re- sort to them because they haven't got the guts to face up to their problems. "It seems to me that those people that do use drugs do so because of some failure in their family situation." School Board Ride Change In Gas City MEDICINE HAT (CP) School board officials decided Monday night to change the ruling that had forced cancel- lation of a speech by Agricul- ture Minister H. A. Olson. About 500 students demon- strated last week to protest the cancellation of Mr. Olson's scheduled address to students at Medicine Hat High School. The board cancelled the speech on May 28, stating that its pol- icy was to forbid religious and political speakers hi schools. It changed its policy Monday night to say that religious anil political speakers will be allow- ed but students will have the choice of whether they want to hear them. In other words, a school board spokesman said, students will be allowed to leave then- classes while Mr. Olson is speaking, if they wish. He now is scheduled to speak at the school Monday, June 15. At the board's Monday night meeting, teachers condemned the board's cancellation of the address as unilateral. Students said it was "hasty and out of line."

In Alberta, the worst fire was burning in a timbered area in the Primrose Lake weapons range which straddles the Sas- katchewan boundary. More than acres had been blackened by the blaze which had not been controlled. Most of the timber burning hi both provinces was spruce with a smattering of jackpine. But in Saskatchewan some fires were raging over areas burned out last year. One Saskatchewan pulpwood lease was threatened. The British Columbia forest service said 103 fires were burn- ing Monday night and about SCO men were on the fire lines. The blazes wrere "reasonably well contained." Eight fires were- burning in Manitoba, seven under control. The one uncontrolled blaze had destroyed acres of non- commercial forest near Norway House in northern Manitoba. Most of the fires in the four1 western provinces were blamed on hot, dry weather and light- ning strikes during the week- end. Counterfeit Ring; Cra Iii Vancouver VANCOUVER (CP) Police said Monday they have broken up a counterfeiting ring spe- cializing in duplicating works of the group of seven painters. In the last four months, six paintings were passed as au- thentic works and sold for a total of police said.

By JIM OSBORNE EDMONTON dian Senate was described Monday as a "pretty tame tiger" that has not fulfilled its purpose and must be abolished or reformed. Some descriptions by dele- gates to ;he Western Liberal policy conference were criti- cized as rude. But the meeting endorsed a call for thorough Se- nate reform to make it a princi- pal forum of regional interests. A resolution by Frank Mul- doon of Winnipeg said Senate reform must ensure that less- populated regions are protected and represented, must redefine ;iid broaden the Senate's role and give it more significance in the two-house parliamentary system. The resolution was presented at the closing of the three-day conference and received strong support from delegates, who had dwindled by that time to 86 from an original 350. Mr. Muldocm said many sena- tors are complacent, fully aware they are secure to age 75 "as long as they can produce a still-warm body in the Senate chamber." CUT ELECTION CLAUSE Before endorsing the resolu- tion, delegates extracted one clause that said appointment should be replaced by election to the upper house. S'everal delegates warned that an elected Senate would wrest power from the House of Com- mons, where most power was intended to be. Delegates also took issue with the practice of voting along Darly lines in the Commons, saying it "seriously impaired" MPs from carrying out the Hinton Baby g HINTON, Alta. (CP) No new clues were reported Mon- day in the search far a three- week-old baby missing since May 24. The infant was last seen by the mother, Kai Ericksen, when she fed the child before going to bed about 'p.m. About n hour later she was awakun- wishes of their constituents. The conference approved a resolution asking that MPs be freed to vote individually. Should a government bill be de- feated as a result, it should not constitute loss of confidence. Resolutions will be presented to the national Liberal policy conference at Ottawa in Novem- ber. Delegates also called Monday for careful analysis of all long- term resource export commit- ments and said Canada must re- tain firm economic and political control over its development. Several resolutions called for a tougher approach to natural resources exploitation by non- Canadian companies but stopped short of suggesting any specific formulas on Canadian ownership. Delegates urged that Ottawa negotiate with the United States for natural gas exports only if the U.S. removes its restrictions on imports of Canadian cmde oil. Delegates also called for pro- hibition on exports of fresh water unless approved by Par- liament. WEATHER AND ROAD REPORT
