The newspaper today quotes an unnamed source close to Tenneco Oil's negotiations for the release of a Canadian and three Americans still held by the guerrillas as saying Thurs- day that a letter sent to the oil company earlier this month demanded "substantially more than more'' for the three Tenneco employees. Clifford James. 27, of Walk- erton. Ont.. and two Americans were on a prospecting trip for Tenneco Oil when they were captured with Mr. Wederfort March 26. The third American was a United Nations employee and was being given a lift by Mr. Wederfort at the time of the capture. "The guerrillas were told (by Tenneco) to release some more hostages after Grant Wyatt's release to show that they were bargaining in good faith before money would be discussed." said the source, who says he has seen the E.L.F. letter to Tenneco. G. H. Meason. chairman of the oil company's board, said in a telephone interview from Houston. Tex.. Thursday night that the Houston office "has neither received nor responded to such a message."

Sea meet getting down to serious business CARACAS (AP) After a week of international wrangling over procedural problems, nations of the world move ahead today in their quest for a constitution of the seas. More than half a dozen countries of the 148 participating in the United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea. are to describe what they believe an ocean treaty must contain. Discussions on procedures and voting rules ended Thurs- day night, after a last-minute political controversy injected by China. The Chinese insisted that delegate credentials should be taken away from any countries whose governments are not the legitimate representatives of their people. The status of the Khmer re- public Cambodia was the focal point, and the delegation from Senegal told the session that they do not recognize the present government. The United States objected to the conference taking up political questions, and after the mediation of Hamilton Amerasinghe of Sri Lanka, the conference president, the U.S.. China and Australia reached a compromise. LEFT TO A VOTE The credentials of any coun- try will be examined if two- thirds of the countries here vote to do so. The Chinese proposal, sup- ported by Eastern European as well as African and Latin countries, appeared to be aimed primarily at a future meeting of the conference, probably in Vienna in 1975. The conference also com- promised on voting procedures. Treaty draft resolutions will be approved by a two-thirds majority of those delegations present and voting, but the majority votes must total 76 countries and at last 100 countries must be present when voting takes place. Third world countries had wanted a simple majority rule in voting, while the developed maritime powers favored two- thirds of the 148 countries at the conference. Participants have pledged to talk as long as possible to try and reach agreements on a treaty favorable to all. Deiegations speaking today include Poland. South Vietnam. El Salvador. Barbados. Costa Rica. Brazil and North Korea. Important Statement The charges against Lakeview Bakery (Lethbridge) Ltd. all occurred on one day, March 22nd, 1974 during an un- usually busy period.

By GERRY BOURDEAU The CANADIAN PRESS While Prime Minister Trudeau spoke to a cheering rally of about in Toronto, New Democratic Party Leader David Lewis' speech in Saskatoon was disrupted by native demonstrators. The NDP leader was con- demning Liberal election promises as worthless when a woman, one of a group of about 20 members of Saskatchewan youth and native organizations, attempted to make her way to the speaker's platform in the city's Centennial Auditorium. She was ushered away screaming by Saskatchewan Attorney-General Roy Romanow only to return yelling at Mr. Lewis for a chance to speak. She later identified herself as Marge Laframboise. Mr. Lewis invited the group to remain and to discuss their concerns after he spoke. When he concluded his speech, Nora Thibodeau, president of the Native Women of Saskatchewan, read a list of complaints against the NDP provincial government. Among the complaints was a charge that the provincial government is breaking its word to native people. Mr. Lewis said he understood that a meeting between the native leaders and the provincial government was scheduled for July 3 He said the group should not have disrupted the rally with the date so close. WON APPLAUSE He won a standing ovation from the crowd of about 800 when he said he had every rea- son to believe in the honesty and integrity of Premier Allan Blakeney and his government. Earlier Prime Minister Trudeau, accompanied by his wife Margaret, addressed the largest gathering planned by any party in the July 8 federal election campaign. While party organizers had hoped to fill the Varsity Stadium, the people that did come passed their minimum expectations of "What a meeting and what an evening and what a party we Mr. Trudeau told the cheering crowd. His speech was one he has made on numerous occasions during the campaign, attacking opposition parties and calling for re-election of a government that had met head-on such problems as unemployment, the oil crisis, arctic sovereignty and Canada-U.S. trade differences. He said the Liberals would attack inflation problems "like we have tackled the success and honesty." TRADING SEATS? In Edmonton Thursday night. Progressive Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield addressed his most enthusiastic crowd of the campaign by hitting out at Mr. Trudeau's conception of federalism and accused the Liberal government of trading Alberta's interests for seats in the East. He told about supporters that "Mr. Trudeau has been trying to trade off the legitimate interests in this province for seats in Ontario and eastern Canada." "That's the old Liberal game of divide and conquer, the old technique of sowing prejudice and suspicion in the hope of a harvest of votes." he said while Alberta Premier Peter Loughecd nodded in agreement in the background. "The matter of tax-sharing and resource revenue sharing with the provinces is a matter of immediate concern and we will convene a federal-provin- cial conference to develop co- operatively mechanisms to al- low us to reduce the rate of in- flation in this country." Earlier in Winnipeg, Mr. Stanfield said the conference would involve discussions on ways of restraining prices once his party's proposed 90- day freeze on prices and incomes had ended. REPEATED PLEDGES Mr. Stanfield also reiterated that a Conservative government would reduce federal spending by five per cent, abolish the Food Prices Review Board and Information Canada and ap- point former auditor-general Maxwell Henderson as head of a special group to tighten gov- ernment spending. While Mr. Stanfield blasted Liberal policies, Federal Health Minister Marc Lalonde said in Montreal that "professional haters of French" are infesting the Conservative party. He told supporters in his home riding of Montreal Out- remont that Conservative candidates in English Canada are raising "the bogey man of French power" and have been trying to divide the country to win votes by bringing Quebec's proposed language bill, which would make French the official language of the province, into the campaign. Heavy advance voting expected OTTAWA- (CP) Electoral officers are bracing for an un- usually heavy federal vote at advance polls this weekend. Jean-Marc Hamel, chief electoral officer, said today he has received conflicting information about how many people expect to cast advance ballots for the July 8 election. But his office had vastly increased facilities in case of a heavy turnout. "In some parts of Canada we almost have horror stories that thousands of people will go to advance polls." said Mr. Hamel. Voters who probably will be away from their home ridings on the July 8 polling day may use advance polls Saturday and Monday between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. local daylight time in most places in Canada. In certain parts of British Columbia and Newfoundland voting will be between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. local standard time. The voting hours have been set so that polls will open and close at the same time in each time zone. Mr. Hamel said.- CHECK LIST Urban voters may find their advance polls by checking their preliminary voting lists, he said. They may go only to the poll mentioned on the voter's list carrying their names. Rural voters can get information on location of the advance polls from local returning officers. Mr. Hamel said. People qualifying for advance polls include the handicapped, the elderly, those away on holiday or business July 8. and others who expect to be unable to get to the polls on election day. They must sign affidavits stat- ing why they cannot vote July 8. Mr. Hamel said advance poll facilities have been increased 30 per cent to 50 per cent this time.
