Mr. Turner said the problem was with time lags and whether the U.S. Congress will be able to resist demands for protec- tionism while the corrective measures applied to the U.S. economy take effect. He said statistics on the Ca- nadian economy reveal "re- markable strength in the econ- omy, almost overvrhelming, frightening strength."

Debate on the wheat board motion was cranky and loud, wilh more than the usuaC amount of heclding. Mr. Lang, who said ffrain shipments from West Coast ports will reach record levels this year, called the Con- servative motion an indirect as- sault on the wheat board which, he said, will continue to press for higher prices on the world market.

An hour after Mrs. Gandhi said there is "far too much se- curity" surrounding her week- long visit to Canada, close to 200 chanting Pakistanis were lining the sidewalk opposite the hotel where she was dining with Quebec Premier Robert Bou- rassa. The demonstrators, protesting the fate of Pakistani prisoners of war in India, had been granted a permit for the protest during which they chanted, waved flags and placards and occasionally beat their chests. Half an hour later, a group of 30 non-Pakistani demonstrators gathered outside Place des Arts, where Mrs. Gandhi was due for a performance by Les Feux Follets, a Canadian dance troupe.

They have asked the county court here, in a writ filed with Judge M. L. Tyrwhitt-Drake, to grant them control of the so- ciety with its estimated million in assets, including a property worth about million in suburban Colwood where their priory is located. The suit is the latest move in a dispute between two factions in the society which goes back about 10 years. stration was not legal, moved In and asked the protesters to leave. All of them moved on but four who were arrested and charged with disturbing the peace. The four, whom the police de- scribed as were to appear in .court today. STOPPED ON STAIRS A short time later, after Mrs. Gandhi arrived ai the theatre with her security escort of more than 100 RCMP, Quebec Provin- cial Police, and Montreal Urban Community police officers, a group of about 25 Pakistanis made an abortive attempt to enter Place des Arts. As they tried to climb the stairs to a second-storey lobby they were quietly turned back and left the building. Mrs. Gandhi was to fly today to Calgary to continue her Ca- nadian tour. Street clash PARIS (AP) Violent street battles erupted Thursday night between leftist militants hurl- ing gasoline bombs and riot po- lice protecting a right-wing meeting. At least 76 police were in- jured, one critically. Injuries were reported nu- merous among the demonstra- tors, but no figures were avail- able. The riots, among the worst in Paris since the month-long street fighting of the 1968 stu- dent uprising, started when more than leftists tried to approach the Mutualite Hall on the Left Bank.

I Underwood McLelland and Associates submitted a propo- sal for a to million round mountain commu- nity on Spry Lake, just outside Banff National Park, to be call- ed Assiniboia. Company spokesman Dennis Cole said the concept was based on a practical plan of in- teraction between man and na- ture. The project would be located on a site, with actual development confined to 600 acres and the rest left as a wilderness buffer zone. It would include facilities for camping, hiking, skiing, fish- ing, riding, climbing, picnick- ing, boating and sightseeing. Over night accommodation for 800 and facilities to handle skiers a day also are part of the plan Several people expressed concern lhat neither Under- wood nor other proposers had undertaken major ecological studies in the areas of pro- posed development. They suggested approval not be given to any development until either the government or developers undertook thorough environmental studies.

He cited the Lower In- ventories for Tomorrow (LIFT) program, which paid farmers not to grow wheat in 1970. The result, said Mr. Gleave, is that farmers have no surpluses to offer now that when prices are good. Stanley Korchinski (PC- Mackenzie) said Mr. Lang does not have "the guts" to grant farmers, through the wheat board, the 30 cents a bushel ex- tra payment pending final set- (.lenient of farmers' accounts after the end of the crop year July 31. The Conservative attack was called outrageous by Bill Knight who said the board is doing a good job "in spite of the minister who is in charge of it." Some Conservatives said the motion was not to be construed as an attack on the board, but only on the minister.
