End to cold-tvar hostility iu sight Plane crash kills Corporate tax package given second reading OTTAWA (CP) The minor- ity Liberal government's corpo- rate tax package, once a major threat to its survival, sailed through second reading in the Commons Wednesday with all the excitement of a rain-soaked firecracker. The vote was 194 to 30 with only the New Democrats op- psed. The Conservatives, as ex- pected, joined the Liberals to give the long-discussed legisla- tion approval in principle and send it to committee for clause- by-clause study. It was also supported by Social Credit members and Roch LaSalle The vote was such a foregone conclusion that the Liberals mustered only token applause for Prime Minister Trudeau when he rose to cast his vote. Normally, on important votes, there is prolonged applause for party leaders from their sup- porting members. Enough Conservatives were absent for the vote that it would have carried even if that party had voted against the cuts. 39 Absent Thirty nine MPs, 26 of them Conservatives, were missing and the count -would have been 113 to 111 if the party had sided with the New Democrats as it once threatened to do. Present were 102 Liberals, 81 Conservatives, 30 New Demo- crats, 10 Social Credit members and Mr. LaSalle. Speaker Lu- cien Lamoureux, the onlv other independent besides Mr. La- Salle, does not vole except to break a tie. Standing in the 264-seat House Pope marks anniversary of election is Liberal 109, Conservative 107, New Democrat 31, Social Credit 15 and Independent two. The legislation, first an- nounced by Finance Minister John Turner in his May, 1972, budget, cuts the corporate tax rate for manufacturing and processing industries to 40 per cent from 49 per cent. It also allows faster write-offs for money invested in new equip- ment. Initially, Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield objected to making the measures a per- Election fireworks expected ASSUMPTION Indians from across ths prov- ince, some coming 80 miles on horseback, gathered in this iso- lated northern communi'y Wed- nesday for the anxual meeting of the Alberta Indian Associa- tion. They spent most of the day discussing amendments to their constitution and waiting, as one delegate said, for the "fire- worl's" of Friday's presidential election.

Last jear when Mr. Cardinal was narrowly re-elected, a groun of southern Alberta chiefs threatened to withdraw from the association. manent part of the tax system and indicated he might join the New Democrats in opposing them. But he agreed to support the legislation after Mr. Turner promised an opportunity for Parliament to review it next spring. The NDP has opposed the leg- isltion from the outset, calling it as another needless con- cession to big business. NO PROMISE There has been no pledge of Conservative support in the fi- nal stages of the bill's progress. But party spokesmen say the government needs only to make clear that Mr. Turner's review procedure will be adequate. The minister has promised a monitoring process to make sure benefits from the tax cuts are reinvested by industry in the national interest. The bill also will allow a par- liamentary reviw if 60 or more MPs sign a petition requesting it. The vote appeared to wipe out the last immediate threat of an elecfion. No other measures re- maining on the order paper are considered hazardous to govern- ment survival. In other business Wednesday, Mr. Stanfield accused the gov- ernment of changing its mind on a promised energy policy an- nouncement and of using study material as a substitute. He made his comments after Prime Minister Trudeau said a series of facts and figures on the energy situation will be re- leased in a to 10 days. T C. Douglas naimo-Cowichan-The Islands) said Energy Minister Donald Macdonald has repeatedly promised a policy announce- ment. Mr. Trudeau said the release of study material would be de- signed "to provoke public reac- tion and help the government draw up energv policies to be announced in 1974. PUERTO VALLARTA, Mex- ico (AP) An Aeromexico jet- liner with 27 persons aboard crashed while approaching for a landing here, the airport com- mandant reported today. Several witnesses reported seeing a flash of fire in the sky over Banderas Bay as the DC-9 approached. Authorities imme- diately began a boat search of the bay. The flight had a stop-over at Monterrey, Mexico, after origi- nating in Houston, and an air- line spokesman said it was to have gone on to Acapulco and Mexico City after the stop here. The air traffic conlrolofficer at the Puerto Vallarta airport said he last contacted the plane at p.m. EDT Wednesday. The plane was then at 14.000 feet over the Pacific about four miles offshore, preparing for its final approach. The weather was good, he said. An unofficial passenger list indicated that several of those aboard the plane were Ameri- cans who boarded in Houston. The airport commandant said the plane apparently exploded in flight and may have fallen into Banderas Bay or crashed j on a small village along a. rug- i ged, almost inaccessible strip of i the Pacific coast.

No pressure or emborrosiment of COME and ENJOY frit FEAST of GOOD THINGS BONN (AP) Two treaty ceremonies brought West Ger- many closer Wednesday to end- ing cold-war hostility with East Germany and Czechoslovakia. The "steps represented a double triumph for Chancellor Willy Brandt's Nobel Prize-win- ning policy of detente with his Communist neighbors to the east. Brandt's government cs- changed notes with East Ger- many to put their treaty into force at midnight. And Bonn initialled a friendship pact with Prague providing for diplomatic relations and annulling the no- torious 1938 Munich agreement wrung out of Czechoslovakia by Hitler. The first treaty, between the two Germanys, makes it pos- j sible for both to join the United Nations. It provides for normal relations and greater human contact between the rival Ger- man regimes, including the opening of four new crossing points along the mined death- strip border. Brandt's special negotiator, Egon Bahr, said he was pleased that "after such a long road, a new chapter in the history of the two German states now can start with such feeling of hope." In the ceremony in Brandt's Palais Scbaumburg chancellery on the Rhine River bank, Bahr I exchanged folders of legal pa- pers with his East German 1 counterpart, State Secretary Michael Kohl. This was the final step for im- plementing the treaty, signed in East Berlin last December and i later ratified in both states. WALL REMAINS The treaty does trot remove the Berlin wall or the border di- viding Germany since the de- feat of the Nazi regime. But it provides for easing the human hardship of divided families, later detailed co-operation j agreements and an exchange of j representatives" j similar to ambassadors. In a separate Bon ceremony, Foreign Ministers Walter Scheel of West Germany and Bohuslay Chnoupek of Czechoslovakia ini- tialled their treaty to bury more two decides of coM-mar hatred and sat up good neigh- borly relations. Brandt himself is expected to I put the final signature on the pact in Prague in August or September.

The Pope chose the eve of the election anniversary to reaffirm the cornerstones of his pontifi-! cate and spell out once again! his firm stand on faith and mor- als. A booklet issued by the Pope's office outlined the le- sponsibiiilies and the role of Ro- man Catholic bishops. The publication, released by the Congregation for Bishops after the Pope's approval, called for bishops to "agree with the Roman Catholic pon- tiff" in all matters of faith and morals. The publication reaffirmed chastity and poverty for bish- ops. It said they must adhere "with religious obsequiousness to the ordinary teaching of the Pope" and called for an end to public discussion of church problems. Weather and road report SUNRISE FRIDAY SUNSET If L Pre Gandhi visit marred by protesters NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, (CP) Prime Minister In- dira Gandhi of India brought a sharply worded statement of as- pirations of third-world coun- tries to a business audience in Toronto Wednesday, then con- cluded the day with a round social and cultural activities in this town which was the first capital of Upper Canada, now the province of Ontario. Two separate incidents in- volving protesters disturbed an otherwise smooth schedule of personal appearances and sight- seeing. Mrs. Gandhi was to To- ronto Wednesday morning from Ottawa after official talks with government members earlier in the week. She spoke Wednesday to a joint meeting of the Em- pire and Canadian clubs at a downtown hotel, a few hundred yards away from the financial houses of Toronto's Bay Street.
