Saskatoon Hotel Dispute Far From SASKATOON (CP) A public meeting Sunday to consider charges of dis- crimination at the Bessborough Hotel produced mile more than clear indications the- dispute is far from over between a group of. young people and the hotel man- agement.

The meeting followed a week of demonstrations at the state- ly downtown Canadian Nation- al hotel, following announce- ment last Monday of regula- tions governing dress in the hotel beer parlor and liquor lounge. The beer parlor was closed last week and no word has been released whether it will reopen. The rules, drafted by hotel manager George MeCa'be, 32, require that haircuts and dress !onform to what he called rea- sonable standards. The regulations prompt c d takeovers of the beer parlor on .wo nights and a week of dem- onstrations by groups of young people ranging from 50 to 200 persons. Mr. McCabe met Thursday with five representatives of the demonstrators lo .arrange the !unday public meeting and a radio station open line pro- gram Saturday night. One unidentified caller to til- radio show claimed a citizens committee was going to "d something about" the protes demonstrations. Numerous young people Sun day told the meeting that they equate the Bessborough regu ations with discrimina t i o i against Blacks and Indians The dress regulations wen simply an excuse for re- structive action, they said.

But Mr. McCabe and sev eral supporters maintain e hat he is within his civil rights o refuse entry to any persons ikely to have a detrimental ef ect on his business.

Mr. Reierson said rising un- employment and cutbacks in the contraction industry are, ironically, -the prime reasons for the stable outlook. "There is a little less incen- tive for unions to press for he said. "There is not the same competition for skilled tradesmen." However, Mr. Reierson said despite the reduction in the unions' clout at the bargaining tables in conditions of slack employment, some "pretty tough bargaining" can be ex- pected. The minister said unemploy- ment in Alberta now is at about five per cent compared with about three per cent at the same time last year. He said he generally is in agreement with the federal government's six-per-cent wage increase guidelines as long as Jiey remain guidelines only and do not become rigid re- quirements. "In the over-all impact of wage increases, it is essential .0 keeping unemployment down .hat there be a reasonable ceil- ig" He said, "As a province we both sides. There are because they have not bar- gained toughly in the past, Mr. Reierson said. Mr. Reierson said stabiliza- tion of the consumer price in- dex may help reduce pressure for large wage increases. Japanese Protests Continue sometimes reasons rom the guidelines to but vary most vage increases should stick to he general pattern as closely as possible." In particular the guidelines should not be rigidly applied in cases where workers have slipped below the wage norms TOKYO (Reuters) Left- wing demonstrators continued protests today against the re- newal of United Slates-Japan security treaty for the third straight day but major trouble appeared to have been averted. About 15.000 riot police were mobilized around the Japanese capital in. anticipation of an cmoiional anniversary of the death of a teen-age girl in I960 anti-treaty demonstrations. The treaty will be extended auto- matically at midnight next. Mon- day night. But a number of protest ral- lies were called off and others attracted little support in the drenching rain that continued unabated throughout Hie day. At Ehibuya, western Tokyo, blue-hehneted radicals stormed a police post, setting it afire with gasoline bombs. But they were driven off after a brief battle with police during which 31 were arrested. Elsewhere some demon- strators staged peaceful ral- llies under the watchful eye of police.
