35 THS IITHMIDOI HIRAID SO, WS News in brief Amis reduction talks drag OTTAWA (CP) Canada has complained to its allies and "the other side" that prepara- tory talks in Vienna on arms re- ductions in Europe have tended to drag on unduly, an external affairs official said today. John Halstead, an assistant under-secretary, told the Com- nwns external affairs com- mittee that the talks still had not resulted in a firm date for the opening of negotiations. The talks are aimed at a mu- tual and balanced reduction of forces between East and 'West in Europe. Mr. Halstead said that preja- rations for a European security conference in Helsinki are going well but Canada feels the two sets of negotiations should take place in "the same general time frame." Program to be replaced EDMONTON (CP) A three-year federal government program to promote bilingual- asm in schools will be replaced by one of five years, Secre- tary of State Hugh Faulkner said Tuesday. On a cross-country tour talk ing to provincial education ministers, Mr. Faulkner said the Alberta government, in a report on how the bilingual program had been working so far, called for ''long-range poli- ties.' "I said we are thinking of a five-year program to replace the one which runs out next spring. That is quite a commit- ment in a Parliament that lasts from day to Mr. Faulkner said. Whatever form the new pro- gram takes, the federal con- tribution will be in the same "ball Mr. Faulkner said.

(CP) j temporarily stockpiled but then So many old bombs are being i abandoned. OTTAWA (CP) Both On- tario and Saskatchewan gave conditional support to the fed- crsl review bill Tuesday. I Saskatchewan Finance Minis- ter Elwood Cowley told the i Commons finance committee the bill represents a "step for- ward la dealing with problems of foreign ownership" but is in many ways "inadequate and deficient." He said such a. bill must be followed by a "positive alterna- tive to present policies" such as a mobilization of Canadian sav- ings for Canadian development. Senator explains vote GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) Senator Sam Enin (Dem. told a news conference Tuesday that he voted to post- pone the Senate hearings into the Watergate political espion- age scandal because he "was afraid the committee would be blamed for anything that went wrong" in the current summit talks between U.S. President Richard Nixon and Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev. Ervin said the committee had acceded to a request that the hearings be put off for a week since ''Mr. Nixon and Mr. Brezhnev are talking about serious matters and we didn't want to do anything that might jeopardize" the negotiations. Matrai faces deportation MIAMI (API A lawyer for i a Canadian convicted of as- saulting Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin in 1971 said Tuesday he will file a motion arguing that his client would be subjected to possible political persecution if deported. Neal Sonnett, representing Geza Matrai, was granted a 10- day continuance to file the mo- tion by immigration Judge Harry Mattingly. The government is seeking to deport Matrai. He was working here as a hairdresser when ar- rested June 7 for alleged over- staying of his six-month vis- itors visa. Matrai was jailed for three months in Canada after he grabbed Kosygrn by the neck Oct. 13, 1971, during a visit by Kosygin to Ottawa. Horses slaughter criticized OTTAWA (CP) Shipment of live horses to European slaughter houses for sale as horsemeat is a disgrace to Can- ada, Barry Mather (NDP Surrey-White Rock) said Tues- day night. He told the com- mons that all humane societies in Canada are opposed to the practice, Mr. Mather quoted from a letter sent to Agriculture Min- ister Eugene Whelan by T. I. Hughes, general manager of the Ontario Humane Society. It said horses are not prop- erly conditioned before being put on ships and veterinary in- spections are being circum- vented. Also, the horses were subjected to unnecessary strain and stress during ship- ment, unloading and loading and might not be slaughtered humanely in Europe. found in British Columbia the Canadian Forces are running out of men to look for them. The latest reported find is at the Cornox Valley Exhibition grounds here where two bombs and parts of others have been found since March. Their dis- covery had been kept until Monday. The army is busy looking for other lost bombs at Vernon, B.C., where it has spent men hours in six weeks turn- ing up nearly 300 mortar shells, bombs and grenades in two second World War practice ranges. Now the army is trying to lo- cate troops to look for more, particularly at Courtenay, where residents have asked for a complete sweep of the form- er firing range. Major Vic Keating, informa- tion officer for the forces' Pa- cific Command, said he has 150 men sweeping the Vernon rang- es and a squadron out of Chil- liwack building a bridge in northern B.C. Discovery of the bombs here was disclosed by members of the Comox-Strathcona regional district which owns the ex- hibition ground, site of a Second World War Army barracks. They have posted warning signs "at the ground and asked the army to make a metal de- tector sweep as soon as pos- sible. Ray Nculs, assistant secre- tary-treasurer of the regional district, said discovery of the bombs was not disclosed earl- ier because they did not want to alarm, people. In Vernon. where two boys were killed by an old mortar bomb in April, the army is find- ins; bombs in clusters. Twenty-one clusters of bombs, about 10 bombs in each, have been located on two form- er practice ranges. They had apparently been gathered and tawa is studying for a sweep at A spokesman said the nation- al defence department in Ot- the request Comox and should decide soon. If authoriz- ed the sweep would take about three weeks, said Maj. Vic Keating in Victoria. Maj. Keating said the ComuX range was probably swept when it was abandoned more than 25 years ago, but mortar bombs can imbed themselves as deep as four feet, beyond detection by mine-sweeping equipment. Asked if there were any other old firing ranges which might have unknown numbers of un- detonated bombs lying below the surface, he replied that he thought a island off Tofino, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, was once an ail-craft bombing range. Gandhi ends official activities OTTAWA (CP) Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi today ended three days of offi- cial talks and social functions in Ottawa and flew to Toronto in an armed forces jet. Recreation schemes challenged CALGARY (CP) Future fuel shortages could transform the Canmore corridor into a scenic valley of multi-million dollar white elephants, Dr. Gor- don Hodgson, director of the en- vironmental science centre at the University of Calgary said Tuesday. Dr. Hodgson was addressing an Alberta Environment Au- thority hearing into land use along the eastern slopes of the Rocky Mountains, which, among other tilings, is con- sidering several massive rec- reation schemes proposed in the Canmore corridor west of Calgary. He challenged the economic feasibility of these proposals suggesting that a shortage of fuel will in the near Mure lim- it the mobility of people. is unfortunate that many of the development proposals for the eastern slopes are short sighted in this respect.

Mrs. Gandhi arrived in Ot- tawa Sunday. Her stay here has been a mixture of receptions, dinners and two days of private sessions with Prime Minister Trudeau discussing world events, economics and trade be- tween the two countries. Mrs, Gandhi will spend one day in Toronto, escorted by fed- oral Energy Minister Donald meeting Premier William Davis for a tour of On- tario Place and a helicopter view of Niagara Falls. This evening, she wras to join Prime Minister and Mrs. Trudeau for dinner at Niagara- on-the-Lake and an evening at the Shaw Festival. Her few hours of closed talks with Mr. Tnideau Monday and Tuesday allowed only enough time to review and discuss some of the problems facing each country. External Affairs Mitchell Sharp said high-level officials of both countries prob- ably will meet for more de- tailed trade discussions in New Delhi in November. Highlight of the visit was Mrs. Gandhi's televised address scene and- toward a more fo- ciisscd use of the mountainous regions.

We do net have the immediate popula- tion pressures and have excep- tional resources and a some- what intact natural environ- ment." Solicitor general admits penitentaries 'bugged' By IAN HUNTER Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Solicitor General Warren Allmand disclosed Tuesday that some cells and visitors' areas in Canadian penitentiaries are "bugged" and stated that he doesn't know if electronic devices are used in the institutions to overhear conversations between a prison- er and his wife or his lawyer. The disclosure, before the House of Commons Committee on Justice, was a reversal of earlier testimony given by Al- lmand to the committee. The solicitor general said that when he was asked a few weeks Lang statement argued in House OTTAWA (CP) Before the subject became enveloped in a procedural argument, Prime Minister Trudeau told the Com- mons Tuesday he is inclined to think the four western premiers are wrong in suggesting Justice Minister Otto Lang made any offensive remarks about next months Western economic con- ference. New Democratic Leader Da- vid Lewis had asked whether Mr. Trudeau received a tele- gram from the premiers ex- pressing concern about the "ill- considered partisan" statement made by Mr. Lang In Winnipeg last Friday. The prime minister said he read portions of the speech that were pointed out to him and there was nothing offensive or deleterious in them. Before the lengthy discussions ended, Mr. Lang on a question of privilege pretested the "mis- interpretation1 being placed on his Winnipeg speech by opposi- tion MPs. The premise of some questions was based on press reports of what might or might not have been said. What he had said in Winnipeg was a slight warning of what might happen to the conference if partisan approaches were fol- lowed. SUNRISE THURSDAY SUNSET Lelhbridge Pincher Creek Medicine Hat Edmonton Grande Prairie Banff Calgary Victoria Pcnticton Prince George ___ Republican committee seeks funds WASHINGTON (AP) The Republican national committee has sent out an urgent appeal for contributions that acknowl- edges the party is in trouble be- cause of the Watergate scandal. Republican officials repeat- edly have said that the party organization would not be the loser in Watergate because it was not involved in any wrongdoing or cover-up at- tempts. In the new appeal for money, David Wilson, chairman of the Republican national finance committee said once again that no one has suggested the organ- ization "is even remotely con- nected to Watergate." But Wilson, in the June 15 let- tecr. said: "The Republican party is in trouble. We need your help." "The deplorable Watergate scandal, in which a few mis- guided political adventurers ex- ercised extraordinarily bad judgment and performed as- sorted questionable acts, has cast a pall of suspicion over the Paris........... 81 activities of the entire Republi-' can Wilson said. He added that many staunch Republican contributors have withheld their money until Wa- tergate clears up "and, as a re- sult, the Republican national headquarters is very badly in need of funds.'1 Mr. Lang was quoted as tell- ing the Winnipeg audience at one point: "We aren't going to get ahead if the premiers insist on a tun- nel vision try to get quick, surface answers to a problem with deep underlying causes." He had said that no attempt is being mad eto divide the four western provinces "but I am concerned that the confer- ence may bog down or deterior- ate into a political squabble for one reason or another." He also had said he person- ally is confident that petty polit- ical arguments can be avoided. Gerald Baldwin River) said there seems to be a misunderstanding over whether the conference July 24-26 in Cal- gary, between Mr. Trudeau and the four premiers will consist of vague generalities or concrete proposals. The prime minister said the throne speech advocating the conference referred to concrete action and he has repeated this several tunes. There had been tween the premiers and him- twen the premiers and him- self. ago if bugging was carried out in penitentiaries, he was not aware that it was. But he has since found out that the prac- tice is followed in rare cases, he explained. Asked if the devices are used to monitor conversations be- tween prisoners and their wives and families, Allmand said that all he was told is that bugging is carried out on prisoners and their visitors when it is felt in- formation concerning crimes may be obtained in this way. He promised to investigate the matter further. Gordon Fairweather (PC Fundy-Royal) said that prison- ers have little enough privacy without their conversations with members of their families being bugged. "If this was widely known among inmates it would be de- he said. Allmand said he could justify the use of electronic eaves- dropping in penitentiaries to disclose plans for escape and other forms of criminal infor- mation, but not to overhear prisoners' conversations with their families or lawyers.
