(Transportation tosti will be provided if necessary) three-month strike of Irav.'lc-i- men against two eastern Nova Scotia t'isli companies opened here Wednesday as sympathy walkouts erupted in several parts of the province. The inquiry, under provincial Judge Nathan Green of Halifax, was ordered by the federal and provincial labor departments after 250 fishermen seeking company recognition of their chosen union left their ships in late March. About Nova Scotia tradesmen left their work New Waterford, Port Hawkesbury, Halifax and this fisliing town of Wednesday as a gestiu'e of sympathy for the striking fislvermcn. Picketing at the three fish plants involved has continued despite a Nova Scotia Supreme Court injunction against it and despite Monday's sentencing of fisherman Everett Richardson of Canso to nine months in jail. Women and children have been included among those on the picket lines. Two companies, Acadia eries Ltd. and Booth Fisheries Canadian Ltd., operate the plants here and at Mulgrave on the Nova Scotia mainland and at Petit de Grat on the Cape Breton side of Chedabucto Bav. ormen and Allied 'Workers Union as their bargaining agent. The companies have refused to recognize Hio union arid, imdei the present provincial Tradi Union Act, fishermen are no employees but "co-adventurers' sharing with the company in Told Army Trained To Assist Police KENORA, Ont. (CP) The Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police was told Wednesday that the Canadian Army is trained and prepared to assist police in quelling civil disturbances. Brig.-Gen. Gerald Coffin, offi- cer in command at the Cana- dian forces base in Oakville, Ont., told the association's an- nual convention that such army assistance comes under" the Na- tional Defence Act. He said an increase in demon- strations on campuses and in the streets makes "the possibil- ity of the armed forces being called in to aid the civil forces more real." Brig..-Gen. Coffin said On tario has not encountered as much disturbance as Quebec but "it would be prudent to take discreet measures" to prepare For Summer Fun CORTIHA DOWN PER MONTH So Little Paid For So Much! h STREET, I9lK STREET AVENUE, LETHfl RIDGE, ALBERTA VACATION FOR LESS 1965 GM MOBILE Complete with Fridge, Sieve, Sleeps 4.

"A dialogue between police and tlie military" is a necessity, he told tlie chiefs, In the event of a civil disturb- ance in Ontario, the attorney- general must ask for the help of tlie military before it is made available. Brig.-Gen. Coffin said the torney-genefal must prove every possible provincial outlet has been tapped before turning to the army. He said the federal govern- ment is (hen obliged under law to send out troops and this, in effect, gives the province "mili- tary power." But the number of troops and the type of assist- ance is left to the discretion of the army. Up to 1.500 troops could be supplied quickly from London and Petawawa and double that number from outside Ontario with greater warning. Soldiers would come armed and equipped with live ammuni- tion. Any order to load and shoot, he said, would come only from "specified well-known offi- cers." Any firing, tlie duels were told, would "be for effect" and would be low to wound and not kill.

Included are a expansion to a pulp mill, a oil refinery and a harbor development project. These workers left thei: jobs Tuesday and stayed off work Wednesday. They were joined Wednesday by several hundred construction workers in new projects in Syd- ney, New Waterford, Canso and Halifax. Thirteen fishermen from tlie Petit de Grat area are sched- uled to appear in court in Hali- fax Friday on charges of con- tempt of court arising from picketing following the injunc- tion prohibiting it.
