Progress In Towboat VANCOUVER (CP) There were reports of "some pro- gress" Monday night after ne- gotiators for the Canadian Mer- chant Service Guild studied what the B.C. Towboat Owners Association called its final offer in a strike that began May 3. Guild officers will attend an Executive committee meeting today at which time they are atpected to decide on their next move. No details of the settlement offer were made public but it does cover the key areas of safety and manning. Minimum HAIE 307 St. i. six-man crews on all large, con- tinuously-operating tugs have been demanded by the towboat men wlule, the owners had offered four- and five-man crews. Federal mediator William Kelly and negotiators for the Canadian Merchant Service Guild wouldn't comment on the proposal, after a two-hour ses- sion during which Mr. Kelly outlined details of the offer. Elsewhere in the towboat strike, guild officers said sher- iff's men visited the union's of- fice in Vancouver Monday and took away certain unspecified assets. Mr. Justice T. A. Dohn of the B.C. Supreme Coiut, who Fri- day jailed guild negotiator cap- tain Arnie Davis six months for contempt of court, had ordered seizure of guild assets until the contempt was purged to the sat- isfaction of the court.

Forestry officials said cool, damp weather Monday allowed firefighters to move up to the fire lines in northwestern Saskatchewan where 95 fires were bum- ing. Some of the fires had been brought under control. At noon today some rain In northern regions of both Albcr ta and Saskatchewan played a key role in allowing fire-fight- ing crews to 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 sibt- ed men in fighting the flames. There were unconfirmed re- ports that residents of Black Lake, 450 miles northwest of 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 t i- mates of the population of Black Lake ranged from 250 to 500. 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. HAS 50-MILE FRONT The largest Saskatchewan fire was located in the Buffalo Nar- rows air weapons range in the northwestern quarter of the province. It was reported to be burning on a 50-mile front. 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 in both provinces was spruce with a smattering of jackpme. But in Saskatchewan some fires were ragtag over areas burned out last year. One Saskatchewan pulpwobd lease was threatened. The British Columbia forest service said 103 fires were burn- ing Monday night and about 600 men were on the fire lines. The blazes were "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 western provinces were blamed on hot, dry weather and light- ning strikes during the week- end. Marketing Of L-Dopa Sought Again OTTAWA (CP) A seam application has been made t federal authorites to market th anti-Parkinson drug L-Dopa foi general use, it was learnei today. The drug, under controllei tests in patients in this country for more than a year, is re ported to control the tremblin and rigidity associated with th disease. The federal food and drug di rectorate began assessing a application made May 22 for au thority to market the drug fo general use. A second applies ion was filed Monday. The United Sates food ant drug authority authorized L- dopa for general use last week three months after applicatioi was made. Dr. Jeffrey Bishop, who head Canadian directorate's drug ac visory bureau, said 17 doctors i 10 centres in the last two years have treated between 250 an 300 patients with Lrdopa im ported from the U.S. under spe cial drug'regulations. In addition, a Canadian dru manufacturer has been conduc ing a series of tests in patients with authorization of the direc torate. This is a normal proce- dure and one stage in the proc ess of testing and authorizing drug for general use. Evidence of the clinical trial and the drug's effects in anima testing programs are submitte to the directorate in support o applications for general use. "These are complex and volu minous documents and tak some time to Dr Bishop said. "We are asslgnin some priority to it and expect tx reply in the next few months o sooner."

"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 Deloy 1Sallenback, public school board trustee, said: ''Research must be done but it would be a mistake to le- galize drags 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 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 SCO 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 in schools. It changed its policy Monday night to say that religious and 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 their 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."

Counterfeit Ring Cracked In 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. Police were notified after a Vancouver art dealer sent two works purportedly by Freder- ick Varley and Franz Johnston to Toronto for verification. Meanwhile, the dealer bought another painting, supposedly by A. Y. Jackson for S400. Po- lice said he was notified two months ago that the Varley and Johnston canvases were fakes. By that time three other counterfeit works worth i had been sold. Dennis Hinchcliffc, 30, is scheduled to appear in provin- cial court Thursday, charged with defrauding art dealer T. V. Krisliansen of by selling him a painting while represent- ing it to be an A. Y. Jackson. FINAL FAREWELL?

Abo By .TIM OSBOR.XE EDMONTON Cana- 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 the Western Liberal policy conference were criti- cized asnde. But the meeting endorsed a call for thorough Se- nate reform to make it a princi- pal forum o! 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 and broaden the Senate's role and give it more significance in the two-house parliamentary system. lie 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. Muldoon 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. Several delegates warned that an elected Eenale 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 party lines in the Commons, saying it "seriously impaired" MPs from carrying out the Hiiiton. Baby HINTON, Alta. (CP) No new clues were reported Mon- day in the search for a three- week-old baby missing since May 24. The infant was last seen by the mother, Kai Erickscn, when she fed the child before going :o bed about p.m. About sn hour later she was awaken- ed by her other child, a three- year-old boy. She said she went -o check the younger child but' cund it missing. Hinton police chief John Clark said kidnapping has not been ruled out but no ransom notes have been left with the family. Mr. Ericksen, a 40-year-old pulp culler, hns offered a S500 reward for information leading to the return of the child. 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 crude oil. Delegates also called for pro- hibition on exports of fresh water unless approved by Par- liament.
