(CP Wirephoto) Govt. mineral rights claim rejected by east provinces HALIFAX (CP) The five eastern provinces agreed at weekend meetings here to form a joint front in negotiating with Ottawa on the ownership ot off- shore mineral rights, but said they were not planning to "gang up" on the federal government. A meeting of the Atlantic provinces Premiers and the vice-premier of Quebec again rejected federal government claims to offshore mineral rights and said a federal offer to divide royalties 50-50 with the provinces was "unacceptable." A formula for division of roy- alties will be discussed at future meetings, they said in a state- ment. Premiers Richard Hatfleld of New Brunswick, Alex Campbell, Prince Edward Island, Frank Moores, Newfoundland and Ger- ald Regan, Nova Scotia, and vice-Premier Gerard Lcvesque of Quebec attended the talks which ended Sunday. In a statement issued after the meetings, the premiers said they would assert ownership of mineral resources in the seabed off the Atlantic coast and in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. They said they will continue their discussions and will seek talks with the federal govern- ment on the matter.

Delegates later approved increase in individual CJTA membership support the new de- partment. Another major recommenda- tion passed during the final ses aion said sale of fireworks should be restricted to repre- sentative of organizations such as agencies, governments, asso- ciations or organizations. They should be used only hi official displays, not by Individ uals, said Dr. B. .K A. Weir o Edmonton, who moved the rec ommendatlons.

PREPARE TO MEET .The renewed violence came is the two leading Roman Cath- jlic politicians prepared to meet William Whitelaw, the British minister In charge of Northern relancl, today for lalks aimed at ending the bloodshed. The two Hume and Paddy members of the main opposition wlitical party in Northern Ire- and, the Social Democratic and Labor party. They held a first round of talks with Whitelaw last Thurs- day and afterward appealed .to gunmen in the Provisional wing of the Irish Republican Army to cease their campaign of viol- ence so that a program of wide-rangiug peace talks could 6 tart. There was epeculation here that the two politicians met Provisional leaders during the weekend to press for a ceasefire and might report on their find- ings to Whitelaw. Tlie talks with the minister come amid continuing specula- tion that there is a split in the Provisional ranks between those who favor a continuation of the shooting and bombing and those who want to call a halt. But the Provisional have In- sisted that there is no split nor change of leadership. Bernadetle Devlin, a member of the British Parliament for mid-Ulster, joined Sunday in the calls for a ceasefire, warning that the threat of civil war Is still great. SILVER SPRINGS, Md. (AP) George C. Wallace's doctors say the Alabama governor has a no-percent chance of being able to move about with assist- ance within six months. Following delicate surgery Sunday to remove from his spinal canal a bullet that has left him paralysed from the waist down, tlie governor's doc- tors indicated he will be able to attend next month's Democratic national convention. But they said (here is less than a 50-50 chance he will ever be able to walk normally again. Chances are better Iliey im- plied, that Wallace will be able to overcome his paralysis to the extent that he could walk a few steps with the aid of braces and crutches. They stressed an even-more- likely prospect: that Wallace will be able to stand unassisted and to move about with the help of crutches and braces "by swinging along, rather thnn even if the paralysis persists. This would mean he would not have to spend I he rest of his life in a wheelchair. These possibilities were out- lined at a news conference sev- eral hours after'completion of the 90-minute operation to re- move the bullet. SHOT AT RALLY .Wallace was shot several times May 15 as he concluded a rally at Laurel, Md., in his quest for the Democratic presl dential nomination. Dr. Stacy Rollins, the Holy Cross Hospital neurosurgeon who headed the seven man op- erating team, said Wallace's spinal telcphone-ca ble-like rope of nerve fibres tha transmits nerve messages be- ween Ihe brain and ths rest of he bruised but In- acl. Dr. Rollins indicated that iruised spinal cord can evenlu- ally regenerate at least some of Is nerve-trans mision power. But he stressed that is not al- vays the that doctors won't know how Wallace will 'are in that respect for between six and 18 months. Dr. Rollins said that, barring iome unforeseen complication rom the bullet-removal sur- ;ery, Wallace's chances of at- ending the Democratic conven- tion in Miami Beach next month are good.

Mr. Schmid was speaking to more than 300 delegates to an Alberta cultural heritage con- ference which earlier had rec- ommended formation of such a council to act as an intermedi- ary between the province and ethnic groups. In a reference lo the suicide in Toronto June C of Polish im- migrant Alicia Wiercioch, who took poison rather than be de- ported back to Poland, Mr. Schmid said: "Alicia Wiocioch left a mess- age for all of us involved in this cultural heritage confer- enoe. All we need' is the heart and the good common sense to understand." Mr. Schmid said Canadians are in a position to exarnino t more than 50 cthno cultural i heritages, from which socieiy can preserve the best, build j an enriched, dislinnt Canadian i culture of our own." WASHINGTON (CP) Dis- closure that a salaried Nixon- campaign security expert was one of five men arrested during break-in at the Democratic national committee headquar- ters has prompted Democratic accusations of "political espio- nage" and Republicans denials of involvement. Lawrence F. O'Brien, Demo- cratic national chairman, said Sunday the affair raised "the ugliest questions about Ihe in- tegrity of the political process I have encountered in a quarter- century of political activity." O'Brien sent a telegram to At- torney-General Richard Klein- dienst urging "an immediate and full-scale investigation" by the FBI to determine "what or- ganization or individuals are be- hind this incredible act of politi- cal espionage." A justice department spokes- man said the FBI had already begun an investigation as a "routine matter." Police said the men appar- ently were planning to install electronic bugging devices and photograph papers in the files. MITCHELL DENIES LINK Former attorney-general John Mitchell, chairman of the Com- mittee for re-election of the president, said in a statemenl that the five men were "not op- erating either on our behalf or with our consent." The Republican national com- mittee issued a virtually identi- cal denial of any Involvement, The White House refused comment. All the statements came after The Associated Press found the name of James W. McCord Jr., Seized guns examined by experts OTTAWA (CP) Weapons experts are examining Italian-made sub-machine guns seized here Friday and a police spokesman said today it will be two or three days before any charges are laid in connection with the discovery of the illegal cache. The weapons, all inoperative, arrived in Montreal on a ship from Spain and were found by police in a city welding shop. The police spokesman would not discount the theory that the firearms were destined for the collectors market.
