Announcing the decision in the Commons Tuesday, Prime Min- ister Trudeau said the new pol- icy will not lead to creation of French-Canadian "ghettos" in the federal service. The government would pro- ceed with the understanding that the units "should not be considered an end in themselves and that we should have ail open and experimental attitude towards their potential advan- tages and disadvantages." lie noted that such units al- ready operate in brandies of the public service in Quebec, in some departments in Ottawa and in the Canadian forces. The government will proceed with pilot projects designed to test the idea more fully "over the next year or so" in a number of departments.

President R. R.

The program will aim at de- veloping a process control sys- tem for sulphur recovery plants which will economically mini- mile air pollution caused by the presence of sulphur dioxide to the plant waste gases.

If British Columbia delegates to the federation's convention in Halifax two weeks ago, had been able to discuss the matter beforehand, Mayor Haddock said, Edmonton Mayor Ivor Dent might not have been elected president. "This was the most inexpli- cable he said. "Why would you want to elect an NDP man as president of a group which depends so much on the federal government's co-operation. And Dent is a de- vout enemy of the federal gov- ernment." "Don't misunderstand me. Dent is an excellent man, but he's not the right man to head this organization. He can't help but clash with the federal gov- ernment, and that's no good for me federation. Two-Stage Tax Rate Is Set GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) City council has set its first two-stage tax rale, providing differing rates for supporters of the city public school system and for separate school sup- porters. The rate under the public school system will be 78 mills, a decrease of two mills from 1969. Separate school support- ers will pay 82 mills, an in- crease of two. The new rate means public school taxpayers will be assessed an average of about less; separate school taxes call for more than last year. of the present crop year "provi- sion will be made in the new crop year to enable their grain to be he told a meeting of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool. Mr. Lang also told delegates that the grain movement is the largest in Canadian history and that last week, cars were unloaded at the Lakehead. "This all out effort on the part cf the entire grain indus- try will continue to the end of the crop year." All indications were that the movement will continue to be heavy until the end of the navi- gation season. Mr. Lang said he has started a comprehensive review of the quota system. "The new quota system will be designed to provide a method by which farmers can accurately judge their own marketing opportunities and produce in relationship to that anticipated demand." He said he hoped that farm- ers in 1971 will be able to re- turn to a more normal produc- tion pattern following this year's Operation Lift. The export marketing situa- tion had improved to where ex- ports of all grains were expect- ed to be more tham bushels above shipments last year. "During the last six months, Canada has sold about 000 bushels of barley, of which are scheduled for de- livery this crop year and for the next." It is reassuring, he said, that the international market for wheat has been stabilized.

Mr. Trudeau's statement pin- pointed to the creation last year in the secretary of state's de- partment of an unofficial but similar official languages branch. Mr. Stanfield argued the gov- ernment was side-stepping a de- bate in Parliament over its pol- icy by dropping the one recom- mendation that would have re- quired legislative action. He ins- isted the government should bring the matter" before the Commons. Mr. Trudeau told the House the goal of the reforms is, in the words of the commission, "a real equality of opportunity, en- suring that the face of speaking English or French would be nei- ther a help nor a handicap to a person seeking entry into the in- stitutions affecting our individ- ual and collective life." To that end, he said, the gov- ernment was also willing to ac- cept a recommendation that federal planning and advisory boards, "task forces" and simi- lar groups have balanced par- ticipation by both Francophones and anglophones. MERIT TILL COUNTS "This in no way represents a modification of tlie merit princi- he said. Instead, it would open the fed- eral service to "qualified Fran- cophone candidates whose knowledge of English is limited. It is a pool of talent from which the federal public service has been largely cut off." Mr. Trudeau noted that many recommendations involving use of French in private industry in Quebec are beyond the jurisdic- tion of the government. But it would do what it could to pro- mote their1 acceptance, and would ensure that information about federal contracts is made available simultaneously in both Foreign Policy White Paper To Be Made Public OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment plans to make public its white paper on Canadian foreign policy Thursday.

Opposition Reneivs Inquiry Demand TORONTO Opposition) being sentenced to prison In members of the Ontario legisto ture renewed demands Tuesday night for a public inquiry into the relationship between senior provincial police officers and a businessman record. with a criminal The demands were made in a legislature committee meeting after Attorney-General Arthur Wishart said investigation had shown that "no sinister implica- tions" could be drawn from past social contacts between OPP of- ficers and George Clinton Duke, 65, of Oakvffle, Ont. Mr. Wishart's statement was the result of an earlier demand for an investigation made by Dr. Morton Shuhnan (NDP-To- ronto High who charged June 4 that Mr. Duke had con- tacts with three Canadian mem- bers of the Mafia. The attorney-general acknowl- edged that 11 senior OPP offi- cers, including Commissioner Eric Silk, had visited the Duke home to at- tend promotional demonstra- tions of lawn equipment later purchased by the force from Mr. Duke. The visits occurred over a five-year period ending in 1968. He also said that two OPP su- perintendents had visited Mr. Duke even after Commissioner Silk had become aware of the businessman's criminal record and had ordered a stop to such social contacts. The 65-year-old president of Duke Lawn Equipment Ltd., was deported' to Canada from the United States in 1942 after signed here. 1929 in connection with a jewel robbery in New York state. Mr. Wishart indicated that the two superintendents, Albert Wil- son and A. M. Rodger, might be faced with disciplinary action. Commissioner Silk, who was present during the committee meeting, said Supt. Rodger1 had thought his order was "person- al-type" advice and had told Sup't. Wilson. But the order was not relayed to other officers. Mr. Wishart said Mr. Duke had acknowledged knowing the three men named by Dr. Shul- man as having Mafia connec- tions, but only in connection with his business. The men named were John A. Papalia, 45, Donald (Red) Le- Barr'e, and Dante Gabriel Gas- barrini, 48, all of Hamilton. Mr. Papalia and Mr. Gasbarrini were convicted on narcotics charges in Vancouver in 1949 and were named during a United States Senate crime committee hearing in 1963 as being involved hi Mafia narcot- ics activities. Mr. Wishart said Mr. Duke has conducted himself in a "businesslike manner" since his return to Canada and has not engaged in any "illegal activ- ity."

Primary Full Of Upsets, Firsts NEW YORK (AP) In a pri- mary full of upsets and firsts, Democrats nominated Arthur J. Goldberg, former United States Supreme Court Justice, Tuesday to oppose three-term Republi- can Gov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. Two veteran Democratic con- gressmen, Adam Clayton Pow- ell and Leonard Farbstein, were defeated. For tlie first time, the Demo- crats nominated a Negro, state Senator Basil Paterson of Har- 1 a m, for lieutenan-governor. Herman Badillo of the Bronx won a chance to become the state's first Puerto Rican-born U.S. congressman. In his first bid for elective off- ice, Goldberg, 61, defeated mil- lionaire Howard S'amuels, 50. The state's first governorship primary in nearly 50 j-ears drew only 27 per cent of the Demo- crats despite perfect weather. The Republicans had no state- wide contests. Primaries in the United Stales serve the same purpose as nom- inating conventions in Canada select candidates for gen- eral elections. In U.-S. primar- ies, only registered voters can cast ballots for politicians seek- ing their party's nominations. WILL PROPOSE GOODELL Another millionaire, Repre- sentative Richard Ottinger of suburban Westchester County, won a four-man race to oppose Republican Senator Charles E. Goodell, appointed by Rockefel- ler to complete the term of the late Robert F. Kennedy. Returns from of the election districts gave Goldberg votes, Samuels In the Senate race, returns from districts gave Oltin- ger Paul O'Dwyer, Theodore S'orensen an d Representative Richard Max McCarthy Goldberg, former secretary of labor and United Nations am- bassador is the first man of na- tional stature the Democrats have sent against Rockefeller since Rockefeller ousted Gov. Averell Harriman in 1958. The former union negotiator, judge and diplomat campaigned as a "conciliator." He called the nomination of Paterson "more important than mine" because ho is the first black nominated for statewide office in New York. Paterson led the slate in de- feating Jerome Ambro Jr., a white county supervisor from Long Island who never made race an issue. Paterson's Nov- ember opponent will be Republi- can incumbent Malcolm Wilson. Powell, 61, unbeatable in Har- lem for 25 years, was defeated narrowly by state Assemblyman Charles 40, a Negro who also has Republican back- ing. Powell recently underwent treatment for cancer but said his doctors had given him clean bill of health. Farbstein, 67, a seven-term veteran from downtown Man- hattan, was beaten by a woman lawyer, Bella Abzug, who was strong for peace and women's liberation. Glass Strike Mediation Bogs Down CALGARY (CP) A second attempt at mediation in a strike by 130 glassworkers has apparently failed. Arnold Moore, president of the Glaziers and Glassworkers Union, Local 1725, said today that mediation talks were held Tuesday but little progress was made and "as far as we know they have stopped." The glassworkers went on strike May 25, halting work on more than 20 construction proj- ects, then withdrew pickets June 3 for mediation talks and to allow other workers to re- turn to jobs. The glassworkers now earn an hour and have asked for an increase of an hour n a two-year contract.
