(AP) The Montana Supreme Court has called off all bets for pros- pective gamblers in the state. The court ruling yesterday said gambling remains illegal, and only the legislature or voters can make it legal.

The vote would be cast by Dr. W. M. Sprules, director of the environment department's in- ternational fisheries branch and head of the Canadian delegation to the commission meeting. The 10-year moratorium on commercial whaling was de- feated last year by a 6-4 vote. j with four abstentions.

Basically, council support hinges on hopes the British Co- lumbia government is willing to speed development of a sewer system in Garibaldi area, north of here up Howe Sound. Development of hotels and housing in the Garibaldi area has been stalled because of the pollution problems a large de- velopment could bring. Because the B.C. government has been cool to the proposal, council agreed the plan will be dropped unless government co- operation is offered. The city's backing also has a financial limit of million, the cost of building three skat- tog rinks. jeot with A. J. Graham and Associates, a real estate devel- opment company in Calgary.

OTTAWA (CP) Maryon Pearson, widow of former prime minister Lester B. Pear- son, presented her husband's stamp collection Wednesday to the Canada Post Office. "Mr. Pearson's collection is a unique legacy to the people of said Postmaster- General Andre Ouellet, as he guided Mrs. Pearson around a temporary display in the Par- liament Buildings. A statement from the post office said "it was Mr. Pear- son's wish that his philatelic material would be presented to the National Postal Museum.'" The collection includes mint stamps, first day covers and commemorative albums from other, countries. In accepting the collection, Mr. Ouellet said the display, along with photographs of the former prime minister, would be part of travelling exhibits. He also told Mrs. Pearson that Mr. Pearson would be the first person honored in the new series of stamps on former prime ministers announced some time ago. The six cent Pearson stamp would be out in time for Christmas. E ATO N 'S Your Golden Opportunity!

He said the quotas are "much too that it is "really ludicrous to talk about sustainable yields when the spe- cies have been reduced to one- fifth or one-third of their origi- nal numbers." "We're puzzled and dis- appointed by the apparent atti- tude of the Canadian authorities responsible for making these decisions." Regenstein said. He was "quite sure that this atti- tude is contrary to the wishes of the Canadian public." The Fund for Animals and al- lied groups have mounted a vig- orous campaign recently to save the whales, some of which they say are threatened with extinction and al of which they believe would benefit from a 10- year breather. They contend that the Soviet Union and Japan account for 85 per cent of commercial whale killing, and that whale products are used for such "frivolous" ends as pet food, cosmetics and lubricants. The U.S. adopted a total ban on commercial killing of whales and other ocean mammals last year, as well as banning the in> port or trading of products from these mammals.
