The prime minister said it would not be appropriate to make the appointment during an election campaign without the consent of the Opposition leader.

The new ambassador was first elected to the Commons in 1902 as Liberal MP for the southeastern Ontario riding of Slurmont, now Stormont-Dun- das. He-elected in 1965. he was appointed Speaker the following year and set a record April 16 this year when he presided over the Commons for the 3.010th day.

(CP) A top Canadian labor department official called on unions Monday to try harder in their efforts to organize white- collar workers. Bill Kelly, assistant deputy minister for industrial relations, told a convention of the Office and Professional Employees' International Union that organizing efforts should particularly be directed at employees in small businesses. Mr. Kelly, delivering a speech on behalf of Labor Minister John Munro, said that the proportion of unionized employees in white- It's time for A large selec- tion of the latest in hi-fashion sandals for women and men. r ather'sDaylsJune 16th!

"Too few unions have in the past really tried to organize white-collar workers on any large scale in terms of the necessary personnel and financial resources. It may well be that too many unions have for too long concentrated on those still un-unionized blue-collar workers." he said. concentration can. in- deed, be a main reason why two-thirds of the Canadian labor force are still proportion that closely resembles that for the United States." Mr. Kelly added. While the proportion of em- ployees in white-collar in- dustries has continued to rise. Mr. Kelly said, those sectors of the economy remained the least organized. He said there is a common attitude among white-collar employees that tends to doubt the legitimacy of both unionization and collective bargaining. Mr. Kelly suggested that teams of organizers could spe- cialize in contacts with profes- sional and white-collar employees by developing expertise in the work, problems and attitudes of those workers. He also suggested that pol- icies of U.S. labor, particularly regarding international trade, have tended to separate the in- terests of Canadian and U.S. workers and thus weakened ties between Canadian and American branches of international unions.

EDMONTON (CP) A heavy burden of taxation is steadily destroying Canada's middle income group. Senator E. C. Manning of Alberta said Monday in a speech to the 49th annual conference of the Purchasing Management Association of Canada. "As prices climb, the middle income group in our society is becoming the low income group bearing most of the burden of taxation." said Senator Manning, former Alberta premier. Increased productivity would help control inflation, said the senator, who warned that citizens must stop taking more from the economy than they put in. "The impact of continued inflation is going to continue because traditional restraints are no longer effective." he said. "History has demonstrated that there is no such thing as a partially controlled economy." said the senator, advising delegates to anticipate future social concerns at least a decade ahead. the best insurance policy for a stable future is a new partnership between government and the private sector. The government will have to change its attitude towards corporations as they supply 80 per cent of the employment." Senator Manning also said the tax of a barrel on crude oil exported to the United States short sighted. "It is a credit to the American government and their people that, during the Second World War. they supplied us with petroleum products but didn't raise the price by one nickel." Delegates also heard Dr. Norbert Berkowitz. head of the fuel science division of the Research Council of Alberta, say North America does not have an energy resources shortage. "There is enough known contentional reserves to supply petroleum products for the next quarter century." said Dr. Berkowitz. The book is culled Most of it was written by vou. or people like you.
