The federal government can now gauge "legitimate ideas find suggestions" oa changes to the tax reform proposals and hand down legislation com- patible with views expressed, Mr. Benson told a chamber of commerce meeting Monday. Such legislation "won't be enacted the way the White Pa- per reads now." Mr. Benson rejected as "in- appropriate" any fixed date on the re-establishment of a peg on t h e Canadian dollar which was allowed to find its own level on international markets May 1. Setting free (lie dollar, al- though it will hurt Canadian ex- porters, "was a step neces- sary to correct a disequilibri- um" in the balance of foreign funds in Canada. 1 "We were very upset that speculators would get into the market.

This debate is expect- ed to take place Wednesday. The sterilization statement, proposed by Dr. Jack Walter of London, echoed the posi t i o n taken by the Ontario Medical Association in Ottawa last month. It stated that sterilization of i men or women is acceptable when done by a qualified doc- tor, in an active treatment hos- pital or, in the case of men, where adequate facilities are available, and with written permission of the patient who would say he understood the operation may be permanent. It calls for similar consent from spouse or guard i a n "when possible." The abortion issue arose when six or eight young women, brandishing knitt i n g needles and shouting "free abortion on invaded the luncheon and surrounded one of their number draped in a white sheet soaked with ket- chup to simulate blood. They distributed a letter call- ing on the doctors to support j them by taking up with the 1 government a free abortion on demand program. They hinted at further action by re- calling how some of their num- ber chained themselves in the House of .Commons public gal- leries May 11 and by fixing a Tuesday deadline for hearing from the doctors. Dr. Ross Matthews of Peter- borough, Ont., out going pres- ident of the association, told a news conference doctors have not been getting "feed-back" that indicates the changes made to abortion laws last year are not working. Dr, R. F. Clark of Edmonton said the Alberta association had an unsensational and use- ful kneeling with a similar group. He won support for a resolution calling for a similar confrontation by the national association executive. But die step was only taken after critical comments of the women's tactics.

Two weeks ago, Mr. Justice T. A. Dohm fined the guild and sentenced its chief negotiator, Capt. Arnie Davis, to six months in jail for con- tempt of an anti-picketing in- junction. He was released last Friday on bail pending an appeal to be heard June 22. More contempt actions are still to be heard. The strike came to an end Saturday after the guild and the B.C.

Dr. W. J. Doug Stephen, fed eral officer supervising the clean-up operation, said the slick-licker operates on the wheat combine principle, with a conveyor belt designed to pick up drops of oil. A similar Sewell-developec machine was used off the coasl of Nova Scotia to help clean up oil from the sunken tanker Arrow. Great Canadian Oil Sands Ltd., from whose pipeline the oil poured into the Athabasca River June 6, was unable Monday to estimate how much oil was in- volved. A spokesman said it was hoped the company would know in a few days after total losses from the pipeline are as- sessed. WATER BEING TESTED Tests are being conducted of the water supply for this com- munity to see if a dm of oil on Lake Athabasca- is affecting its purity. There was no danger up to late Monday from a patch of estimated at 200 gallons, which covered an area of some 24 square miles, Dr. Stephen said. The slick was later dispersed by brisk winds and efforts woulu be made to locate it day. Some biologists were quoted Monday as saying the film of synthetic crude could keep oxy- ;en from the fish arid that the iventual breakdown of the film y bacteria could enhance the growth of algae. Dr. J. Donovan Ross, Alberta lands and forests minister, said imvever that he did not believe Tort Chipewyan's water supply vas threatened. Dr. Ross responded to a re- quest for help by sending a de- >artment crew in from the Lac a Biche area, 265 miles to the south. The 25-man crew had jeen fighting forest fires which :d subsided because of cooler veather and rain. OTTAWA (CP) The mar- ket outlook for most major Ca- nadian farm products this ycor is gloomy at worst, shaky at best. Beef, pork and potato mar- kets arc among the few bright spots for farmers in a mid- year outlook published Monday by the federal agriculture de- partment. The 75-page document is (.he first such assessment of rcar- keting and price prospects. It is a mid-year version of the full annual report produced by the Canadian agricultural out- look conference in November. Marketing conditions for wheat are expected to remain depressed throughout the 1970- 71 crop year beginning Aug. 1, although Canadian sales are better than predicted last No- vember. Total sales of Canadian wheat are expected to be about bushels this crop year bushels in exports which would be about bushels better than originally expected. However, Canada will still be left with a carryover stockpile July 31 of about bu- shels, almost a two-year supplu at current disposition rates. "It appears doubtful that any appreciable reduction in world stocks is likely to occur' in the 1970-71 crop the report says. "With some slowing in production, world prices could remain at about current levels." SOME PRICES LOWER Lower prices are predicted for durum and Ontario winter wheat. In feed grains, downward pressure on prices is expected as supplies increase, unless barley exports substantially outstrip the sales of about bushels estimated for the crop year ending July 31. Barley stocks at the end of the crop year are expected to be about the same as year's carryover of bushesl. Prices cannot be raised if Prairie barley is to remain competitive with U.S. corn in Eastern Canadian feed markets. While longer-term prospects for barley markets indicate im- provement, the outlook for oats is sterner a carryover of at least bushels July 31, increased production this summer but slight promise of an enlarged market. The shift to other crops from wheat could also hit seeds market and prices. For rapeseed, the oil- depress if Canadian production holds steady at about to bushels this summer, prices should average about next year, tile report says. Beef production will increase as western Canada herds are being built up. But prices are expected to hold up before an increased rate of slaughtering works through tlio system In two or three years. For potatoes, average yields this summer could hold prices firm as world supplies are doun. LOS ANGELES (CP) The chief prosecutor in the Sharon Tate murder case faced a con- tempt-of-court hearing today on defence charges that he violated a judicial order by giving a pub- lished pre-trial interview. The hearing for Deputy Dis- trict Attorney Aaron H. Stovitz was scheduled before the open- ing of the murder-conspiracy trial of four hippie-style clan members in Urn slayings of the actress and six others. Paul Fitzgerald, lawyer for defendant Patricia Krenwinkel, filed tile contempt charge. The maximoun sentence is a fine and three days in jail. Opening of the trial was de- layed Monday as Fitzgerald joined by lawyers for Charles Hanson, 35, Leslie Van Houten, 20, and Susan Atkins, dismissal of all charges because of the "insidious and virulent in- fluence of pre-trial publicity." The judge asked defence and prosecution to file declarations and evidence concerning the motion and said he would consi- der it until June 25. Jury selec- tion will proceed meanwhile. GIVES ADDED DETAILS The interview in question ap- peared in The Rolling Stone, a newspaper published in San Francisco and appealing largely to young people. It rarts to present the prosecution's evi- dence against Manson's roving clan. Fitzgerald says it includes details of the bizarre killings not made public before. Deputy District Attorney Vin- cent T. Bugliosi, co-prosecutor, said in court that the interview was not so widely disseminated as to affect the trial. The paper says it has a circulation of Later, Bugliosi told reporters the Stovitz interview had been off the record and shouldn't have been published. In other action Monday, the trial of a fifth defendant, Linda Kasabien, 21, was formally se- vered from that of the others. The judge postponed until Aug. 17 a hearing on her trial date. But her lawyer and the prosecu- tion said she probably would not go to trial. "Let's face it." said Bugliosi. "Linda Kasabian will probably be a star witness for the pros- ecution, ami as such she will be granted immunity." Meanwhile, another member of the hippie family charged with the Tate killings was sent- enced Monday to death in the gas chamber for the torture murder of a musician.

Bigger world supplies of flax- seed and a possibility of subsi- dized U.S. exports would de- press prices1 for that product. If rapeseed prices fall, rates :or soybeans in Eastern Can- ada are likely to decline in sympathy. Outlook for dairy products on ;he world scene rern a i n s gloomy, the report says. In Canada, penalties under tiie federal price support system for over-quota deliveries of manufacturing milk could lead ;o culling of dairy herds.

The egg-producing industry could be in serious1 trouble in ate 1970 and early 1071 unless culling of old birds increases sharply." Similar downward pressure on prices is expected in the market for broiler chickens.
