Emphasis shift needed EDMONTON (CP) Drug abuse is a permanent fixture ot modern life and it is futile to try to combat it with "sledgehammer laws." the executive director of the British Columbia Alcoholism F'oundation said today. Edward McRae called for the emphasis to be shifted from ''harsh suppression and all the cloak-and-dagger monkeyshines" to positive programs to help persons on drugs.

Heavy rains hit Edmonton EDMONTON (CP) Almost three inches of rain fell in Edmonton Wednesday, causing hundreds of flooded basements and leaving some streets under two inches of water as sewers backed up.

Application veto urged CALGARY (CP) A Calgary mining engineer has urged the rejection of an application by Home Oil and Alminex Ltd. to construct and operate a oil sands extraction plant in northeastern Alberta. R. W Johns told the Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board in a brief submitted Wednesday at a public hearing that it should reject the application because "there is callous indifference to the recovery-of the resource (oil As flags go, it's a tattered Union Jack. But each inch of the torn and dirty 60 square foot flag is a priceless piece of military history. "The archives in Ottawa would give their eye teeth for this." says Army, Navy and Air Force Club official George Marshall referring to his club's 80 year old Union Jack. The faded red white and blue standard once flew proudly above the heroic efforts of the Kings Own Scottish Border infantry in the 1898 Boer War in South Africa. "This flag will never be unfurled again." George says as he and fellow club member Charlie Ashcroft take the flag down from its resting place and carefully fold it up. The flag has been photographed and a 30 by 40 inch color print will go on the wall in the flag's place. The flag itself, almost falling apart, will be placed in an airtight, glass container and kept in the club's front office display case. The banner, patched where Transit workers strike MONTREAL (CP) The Montreal Urban Community (MUC) was without bus and subway service today, as bus drivers, subway operators, ticket sellers and information agents employed by the MUC Transit Commission did not appear for early morning shift changes.

The regimental standard served during the First World War as a pall for war casualties. The flag returned to Canada with Capt. Gore M. Barrow, a chaplin with Canadian forces overseas. "Don't ask me how he got the says George. Maj. Barrow passed the flag on to his son, Lethbridge musician Bruce Barrow, who donated it last year to the local Army. Navy club. "This is the proper home for it." says George. By KEN POLE The CANADIAN PRESS Prime Minister Trudeau and Progressive Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield asked voters Wednesday to break with tradition when they cast their ballots in the July 8 general election. Mr. Trudeau made his pitch in Yarmouth during a one-day tour of Nova Scotia, which saw 10 of its 11 federal seats go to the Conservatives in the iast election. Privy Council President Allan MacEachen was the only Liberal elected. Mr Stanfield, meanwhile, was in Magog during a heavy- day of campaigning in Quebec, a province that elected 56 Liberals, 15 Social Credit, one independent and only two Conservatives in 1972. New Democrat Leader David Lewis was winding up a three-day swing through southwestern Ontario with a speech in Thunder Bay. The prime minister supported his bid for more Maritimes support with a promise to appoint a full-time fisheries minister, a portfolio that became part of the environment department four years ago. All the voters had to do. he said, was correct "the mistake made last time of forgetting good Liberal candidates." TO REVISE PROGRAM He told about 700 persons at a shopping fifth such stop of a hectic a revised fisheries program would be part of a re-elected Liberal government's policies. Other major proposals were a five-year. small harbors development program and a fishermen's income stabilization program. Mr. Stanfield, who already has promised a separate fish- eries ministry, said a full- scale economic recession could be avoided only through Conservative policies, which included his incomes and prices controls. He said a Liberal government inevitably would be forced to impose some form of these controls despite disclaimers to the contrary. But "this could come too late." FACE PROBLEMS Completing a heavy day of campaigning, he told a quiet audience in Magog that "the issue in this election is whether we are going to face up to our problems and solve them all together." Mr. Lewis told a Thunder Bay audience of about 400 persons that Mr. Trudeau has made "misleading, if not dishonest statements" about the federal budget defeated in the last Parliament. He said Mr. Trudeau had been telling voters that the budget contained more money lor pensioners. "There was not a word about Mr. Lewis said. "You pensioners weren't offered a penny. Earlier in Toronto, Mr. Lewis ripped into the Bank of Montreal for increasing its prime lending rate by a half a percentage point to 11.5 per cent In a broadcast interview, he said the bank's move was in- dicative of how large corpo- rations act in an inflationary climate. The 11.5 per cent rate is the highest since Bank Act changes in 1967 allowed chartered banks to let prime lending rates float freely with BRIDGE RUG DRAPES LTD.

Mr. Diefenbaker. who entered the July 8 election campaign at the national level about one week ago, told a Prince Edward Island audience Monday night that he would not put controls on wages "until wages rose to a level comparable to prices." Mr. Stanfield told reporters that he has talked with Mr. Diefenbaker since then and has been assured that the 78- year-old former prime minister does not disagree with party policy. Following his statement, Mr. Diefenbaker told reporters he supports in principle the official party policy on controls.

The governors also gave Doug Alston, director of liberal education approval to research the possibility of offering a Canadian studies program at the college. The college could offer the program at "very litle additional expense" by revamping some of the courses it now offers. Mr. Alston said. Another new program item on the agenda didn't excite the governors especially when they learned it would cost 3hrm in capital outlay alone to implement it.
