2 THE IFTHBRIDOl HEKAIO Thursday, Jurtt 21, 1973 News in brief CP Air faces strike VANCOUVER (CP) Tony, Steele, spokesman for CP I Air machinists, said today his members will not accept the same settlement as Air Canada machinists agreed to on Tues- day. The members of the In- ternational Association of Ma- chinists and Aerospace Work- ers at Air Canada voted 67 per cent for acceptance of a 16 per cent pay raise over two years. The settlement came after a series of rotating strikes earli- er this month. Mr. Steele. whose members have voted 90 per cent for strike action, said there is no reason why CP Air cannot make a better settlement. Two weeks ago, CP Air ne- gotiators tentatively offered 19.6 per cent over two years which union leaders were pre- pared to recommend for ac- ceptance, but the company later withdrew the offer, Mr. Steele said. 20 die in ship sinking (AP) A ship sank inth 20 lives lost, and frogmen v.-ere trying today to determine whether as many as 50 others might be trapped alive in the vessel, a Philippine Coast Guard spokesman said. The ship struck what was be- lieved to be a coral reef and sank Wednesday about 12 miles south of Cebu, the Philippics' second-largest city, 350 n.'es south of Manila, the spokesman said. The bodies of at least 20 of the 400 passengers on the inter- island vessel were recovered. The spokesman said passin- gers may be trapped below c'aoks in air pockets within the vessel lying in 30-fcot-deep wa- ter. "We believe no less than 50 people are still trapped in ''ic the spokesman said. hove frogmen trying to get to them." Keller itew FBI director WASHINGTON (AP) Clar- ence Kelley, a veteran law en- forcement officer, was con- firmed by the Senate unani- mously Wednesday as successor to the late J. Edgar Hoover as director of the FBI. Kelley. police chief in Kansas City, Mo., for the last 12 years and an FBI agent for 21 years before that, fills a post vacant for more than a year. The vote approving his nomi- nation, submitted by President Nixon June 8, was 96 to 0. Majority Leader Mike Mans- field of Montana told the Sen- ate: "I can think of no better director than Mr. Kelley." Los Angeles key to pollution SEATTLE (AP) "Solving the Los Angeles pollution prob- lem is the key to air pollution solutions around the a Ford Motor Co. scientist said here Wednesday. Bernard Weihstock said he concurred with 100 chemists at- tending x conference here that the immediate problem is not solving air pollution problems but rather learning more about pollution. A spokesman said the confer- ence was an attempt to find "what different chemicals do to the atmosphere." Crude oil requirements higher OTTAWA (CP) _ Estimated daily crude oil requirements this summer are considerably higher than those for the same period in 1972, says Statistics Canada figures released Wednesday. Daily requirements are antici- pated to be barrels during July. barrels during August and bar- rels in September. The daily averags for the whole jear is projected at barrels. Actual quantities used last July were barrels, last August and last tember The annual daily average in 1972 was barrels and in 1971. France's nuclear policy to continue PARIS (CP) President Ontario opposes B.C. proposal TORONTO (CP) Rene Bru- nelle, Ontario community and social services minister, said Wednesday that Ontario will not support a British Columbia pro- posal to have federal mothers' allowances paid 10 or 20 years in advanco so parents could buy j houses. Mr. Brunelle said in an inter-1 view that he has "strong reser- vations" about any scheme to tie in baby bonus payments with house payments. "There must be batter ap- proaches" to the housing situ- ation, he said. Federal Health Minister Marc Lclonde has dismissed the T-.C. proposal as impractical. Police commission wins appeal MONTREAL (CP) The Quebec Court of Appeal ruled Wednesday that the Quebec Po- lice Commission was acting within its powers when it found Jacques Saulnier, Montreal po- lice director, incompetent and recommended his dismissal from the job. The ruling was contained in a 3-to-2 decision granting a po'ics commission appeal from a bee Superior Court writ requir- ing the commission to give Su- perior Court a transcript of evi- dence from the inquiry which judged Mr. Saulnier in- 1 competent. Georges Pompidou of France said Wednesday his government will continue its lone-wolf nu- clear policies no matter what the Soviet Union and the United States decided in last week's Washington summit. The Washington agreements designed to avoid use of nuclear arms "cannot presuppose the least control over our own nu- clear capabilities wnich remain, as everyone knows, in the serv- ice of Pompidou said through his spokesman. The statement came a few hours after Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev left Paris for Moscow. Brezhnev spent two days in Paris reassuring Pompidou that he and U.S. President Nixon had not made any secret deals concerning France and Europe. But the French apparently re- mained unimpressed. Pom- pidou's declaration that France would feel in no way bound by the Washington agreement came despite Brezhnev's insist- ence that it benefits third par- ties as well as the super-pow- ers. BLAND COMMUNIQUE In contrast to Pompidpu's strong statement, the two sides issued a bland communique on the talks praising the state of French-Soviet relations. Pom- pidou and Brezhnev will meet in the Soxaet Union sometime next year, it said. There was no mention of the European conference on secur- ity and co-operation, which Brezhnev had said is regarded with extreme importance by the Soviet Union. France is taking part in the security conference but has stayed out of preparations for a conference on force reductions in Central Europe, which is ex- pected to begin in Geneva in October. And it's going to remain out, said Pompidou's press state- ment. "France, which in recent jears had reduced its military efforts, must on the contrary equip itself with a conventional and nuclear force capable of providing the deterrent strength which it seeks in the interests of world the president said.

Th0 tree was planted to commemorate Conserva- tion Week, which was de- clared by Premier William Davis in honor of the royal visit. Retail prices subsidy suggested by Caouette OTTAWA (CP) Social Credit Leader Real Caouette said Wednesday that the gov- ernment should be subsidizing retail prices rather than giving tax incentives to manufacturing and processing industries. r But that solution to increase sales of goods and reduce unemployment was too simple for the government to accept, Mr. Caouette said in the Com- mons during committee stage debate on a government bill to lower taxes for manufacturing and processing industries. Mr. Caouette said every schoolboy knows that to solve Mine town hearings adjourned EDMONTON (CP) A pro- vincial government commission investigating conditions at the foothills mining town of Grande Cache adjourned public hear- ings Wednesday until Sept. 18, when submissions will be heard from Mclntyre P o r cupdne mines and government agen- cies. The commission has held hearings in Edmonton and Grande Cache where the his- tory of that troubled town, created by the provincial gov- ernment in 1966, was spelled out. Headed by former CPR president N. R. Crump, the three man commission was appointed after Mclntyre Por- cupine laid off about 150 work- ers at its coal mine earlier this year. Before the hearing adjourn- ed, the Alberta Federation of Labor presented a brief calling for the provincial government to take over the mine. In earlier testimony at Grande Cache, a number of miners criticized inadequate safety conditions and poor re- lationships with management. However, some said there was in improvement after senior of- ficials of the company were re- placed after the layoff. Canadian Marconi named on irregular grant list OTTAWA (CP) Canadian Marconi, a Montreal based electronics company, was iden- tified by the New Democratic Party Wednesday as another hi a series of unnamed com- panies criticized in the latest auditor general's report for benefiting from irregular gov- ernment grants. Trade Minister Alastair Gil- lespie refused to confirm or deny it when the company was named in the Commons by Bill Knight (NDP Outside the House Mr. Knight released a package of back- mo delicacies may be t h e j ground material, compiled by source of a number of cases of NDP research, to substantiate deadly botulism in Canada, a big claims. specialist in the disease said it was the second straight here.

PHONE 327.3111 control election campaign spending may be be- cause it has to compete with other high-priority bills for con- sideration by Parliament, Gov- ernment House Leader Allan Maceachen told the Commons Wednesday. Replying to criticism from New Democrat Leader David Lewis, Mr. MaeEaehen said he would like to bring the bill in "at the end of next week" but the pressure from other bills too great. The bill, introduced last Fri- day, is designed to restrict campaign spending, disclose the names of all major contributors and control campaign advertis- ing. Mr. Lewis asked Wednesday whether it would come up for second reading before the House adjourns for the summer and Prime Minister Trudeau in- dicated he would prefer this. In introducing it last week, Mr. MacEachen said it would give Canada "one of the most democratic and open electoral systems in the world. He said it would eliminate any beliefs ''-it elections might be uon on the basis of which party or randidate had toe money ty spend. their parties, donors contrib- would impose strict limits on campaign money spent by can- didates and Names of all uting more than would have to be disclosed and the ad- vertising campaign would be limited to 28 days. Present regulations prohibiting broad- cast commentaries on the elec- tion the day before voting would be eliminated. Spending by national parties would be restricted to an equivalent of 30 cents for every eligible voter in each riding in which the party has a candi- date. Any party exceeding this would be liable to a fine of up to Candidates would be allowed to spend the equivalent of for each of the ftrst eligible voters in their riding, 50 cents for each of the nest and 25 cents for all above A violation by an individual candidate would leave him or her open to a fine. Opposition parties have pressed the government for some time for this legislation and it was welcomed generally when introduced for first read- ing last week. A weaker version was presented a year ago, after public day the Saskatchewan member has named companies he says are referred to in the auditor- general's report in connection with questionable grants. Hermes Electronics Ltd. of Dartmouth. N.S., was named by Mr. Knight Tuesday and he is expected to raise other cases today and Friday. SAYS PAYMENT DUTC In the information he distri- buted Wednesday, he said the trade department has failed to collect an estimated mil- lion it should have received as a result of grants to Canadian Marconi between 1962 and 19B5. The grants, totalling mil- lion for development of radio relay equipment, were given on the condition that the depart- ment would share in any sub- sequent profits, he said. By 1971 equipment sales had totalled about million but the company had ignored re- peated requests from the de- partment to submit statements. "Neither did they pay the agreed share of profits to the crown." When the subsequent grant application was turned New Montana constitution clears hurdle MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) Montana's new constitution will be fully implemented on Sun- day. A three-judge federal court cleared the way for the chart- er by dismissing yesterday a last-ditch attempt to upend the new constitution. The court held that a chal- lenge by the Montana Farm Bureau Federation and a Mis- souls without merit. down in 1971, Mr. Knight said, the company did submit an un- audited statement that listed the profit arising from the grants at million. "On this basis the amount owing to the crown was million." While the money was never paid, he said, new grants were approved by the government when the company explained that it had invested the profits in development of military electronic equipment. B.C. economy continues to shotv expansion VICTORIA (CP) British Columbia's economy continued to expand strongly during the first quarter of 1973, with most major ind i c es higher, according to statistics released Wednesday by Gary Lauk, minister of industrial de- velopment, trade and com- merce. Factory shipments totalled billion, paced by a con- tinuing demand for forest pro- ducts. It represented an in- crease of 23.7 per cent over the first quarter of 1972. Amount of lumber produced was up 11.5 per cent over the same period, pulp production was up 13.5 per cent and paper was ahead 7.5 per cent. The value of exports through B.C. ports increased 24.1 per cent in the first quarter this year while imports were 18.1 per cent higher. Coal and cop- per production were also sharply higher. Building permits in the prov- ince were for construction worth a total of million, an increase of 27 per cent. Housing starts were down IE 9 per cent at but comple- tions were 19.3 per cent higher at fi.495. Retail sales increased during the first quarter by 15.5 per cent while bank debits were up 22.1 per cent. problems, you reduce them to the lowest common denominator. But Finance Minister John Turner was the type of man win if he lost a needle in a haystack, adds another bale of hay to make the problem worthy of his intellect. People were afraid of such Social Credit theories, said Mr. Caouette. SEE AS FUNNY "They find us funny. They wonder how the whole thing would work." Debate on the tax bill, a left- over from the May, 1972, budget, is expected to end later this week. Once considered a threat to the life of the government be- cause of the New Democratic opposition to so-called corpo- rate tax rip-off, the measure has gained Conservative sup- port and thus is assured of sailing through any Commons vote. Marcel Lambert (PC Ed- monton West) said he worried about the tax cuts hurting small businesses. Like Gordon Ritchie (PC Dauphin) he was critical be- cause the bill didn't extend tax help to farming, service in- dustries and transportation. HELP MISPLACED? John Harney (NDP Scar- borough West) said the gov- ernment might be putting tax help where it shouldn't. Instead of helping Canadian processors and manufacturers compete with those in the U.S., the government should create an industrial strategy cen- tred around natural resources. These were Canada's trump cards and they should be pro- cessed fully before being ex- ported. In other Commons develop- ments, the government gave its approval for increased tele-i phone rates to Bell Canada. With the exception of a Bell at- tempt to increase telephont in- stallation charges, other in- creases earlier approved by the Canadian transport commission got the green light from cabi- net. The Liberals also teamed that the Conservatives have cracked tight security and se- cured copies of a confidenta] report on energy that to to bt made public tonight. Embargo placed on soybeans TOKYO (CP) Japanese government and business offi- cials expressed shock today at the United States' decision Wednesday to place an imme- diate embargo on further ex- pnrts of soybeans and other oil- seed products. The order was issued by Com- merce Secretary Frederick Dent, who said the embargo will last at least until new crops of soybeans and cottonseed harvested this fall. Japan's deputy chief cabinet secretary, Ganri Yamashita, warned in Tokyo today that his country, which depends heavily on U.S. supplies of livestock feeds, would be gravely af- fected. In Canada, the Ontario Soy- bean Growers' Marketing Board has asked for talks with foe fed- eral givernment on implica- tions of the export ban and other U.S. measures affecting livestock fesds.
