At such a conference, the do- cument said, an organization could be set up to deal with mutual reduction of troops sta- tioned on foreign territory. The memorandum was issued by the Warsaw pact govern- ments during a foreign minis- ters' June conference 21-22 and was Budapest published today. It said the Warsaw pact countries noted during recent East-West talks that "the views of the countries concerned have To Seek Death Penalty In Tate Murder Trial LOS ANGELES (Reuters) The prosecution said Satur'day it will seek the death penalty for Charles Manson and three of his female followers in the Sharon Tate nrnrder trial. Prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi told prospective jurors in open court that, if the defendants are convicted, the state will ask for death in the gas chamber for all lour. The 35-year-old Manson and two of his hippie followers, Susan Atkins, 21, and Patricia Kremvinkel, 22, are on bial in connection with tile murder of Miss Tate and five others at the ART DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC Certified Dental Mechanic Metropolitan Blclg. 328-4095 actress's home in Hollywood last August. They are also charged with the murder of Leno LaBianca and his wife Rosemary on the night after Miss Tate was killed. Another defendant, Les- lie Van Houlen, 19, is charged only iJ) the LaBianca case. Bugliosi said a fifth defend- ant, Charles Watson, 24, is fight- ing extradition from Texas and might have to be tried sepa- rately. The "protest of silence" by defendants in the Tate trial col- lapsed Friday as lawyers for Manson and his followers re- sumed full-scale questioning of prospective jurors. Manson, 35, ordered his law- yer Wednesday to remain silent when Manson was told in judge's chambers he could not put direct questions to jurors. His three co-defendants followed his lead. about the European security which has been proposed by the Soviet Union. The memorandum said: "The conference can be at- tended by every European state, including the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) and the German Federal Republic (West Ger- with rights equal to those held by the other Euro- pean states, and the United States and Canada as well. "It is generally understood that the convening of the confer- ence must not be tied to any preliminary conditions. "A favorable response has been evoked by the Finnish gov- ernment's initiative to make Helsinki the venue of the confer- ence." SUGGESTS AGENDA The memorandum proposed these items for inclusion on a conference agenda: establishment of secu- rity in Europe and the renuncia- tion of force, or the threat of using force, in relations between the European countries. establishment of an or- ganization of these countries to deal with questions of European security and co-operation. The first conference could be the forerunner of a series of conferences on European secu- rity and organization. The memorandum said the Warsaw pact nations "believe it would benefit the relaxation of European tensions and increase European security if the issue of the reduction of foreign armed troops stationed on the territory of European countries were to be discussed." The follow-up to this has been a plan for a bridge linking this new Hull centre to downtown Ottawa. There are already four Otlawa-Hull bridges but none specifically joins the hearts of the two cities. This is the rub. Ottawa city hall was not en- thusiastic about plans for more federal buildings in Hull. It is even less enthusiastic about a bridge which might mean a drift of some downtown business I to the Quebec side. I SUPPORT STRONG Ottawa has two federal cabi- net Mcllraith and Justice Minister John Turner. Two other Liberal MPs from Francis and Gordon chair- men of Commons committees. I These Liberals are understood to be backing city hall. They and city hall are generally known here as the Ottawa Lib- eral Mafia. Mr. Trudeau confirmed in the Commons Friday that he has received representations from Mr. Mcllraith and Mr. Turner about the bridge. But the Hull side appears the stronger, despite the recent set- back of the new external affairs department headquarters being built in Ottawa instead of Hull. For one thing, Mr. Marchand is a close friend of the prime minister. And Dr. Gaston Isa- bclle, the Liberal MP for Hull, was personal physician to Mr. Trudeau during the prime min- ister's recent Pacific tour. Moreover, Mr. Fullerton pub- licly proclaims Mr. Maryland's viewpoint whereas Mr. Mc- llraith and Mr. Turner have no such uninhibited spokesman. j The assessment by informants representing all sides of the dis- pute is that Ottawa city hall may slow down, but cannot kill, the bridge project.

PHONES 328-7084, 328-8644 DICK STYNER Solos TORONTO (CP) The Star says that Toronto police now be- lieve attempts to enforce illegal price the Mafia or extortion proba- bly behind the recent bombings of Italian bakeries. The paper quotes an unidenti- fied Italian businessman as say- ing "the price war" is responsi- ble for the bombings. He said some bakery owners got together secretly to agree en prices and end the price-cut- ting in the competitive business. "Those who are hit are the dissidents." Premier John Tlobarts told the legislature Friday, in reply- ing to Ontario Liberal Leader Robert Nixon, that a special in- vestigation of the bombings of at least three Italian bakeries has been launched. "We are taking it very seri- ously and intend t-3 find out what it is Mr. Robarts said. The victims of the bombings and other violence in the past insisted they knew no reason for the attacks and claimed they had no enemies. The Star says the owners now have decided to talk. With a growing Italian com- munity, the bakery business has mushroomed into a a yea i- enterprise. New bakeries were formed by former bakery employees who tcok seme of the best customers with them when they set up their own business which added pressure to a high- ly-competitive business. j Human Bones 101' Neolithic Found ATHENS fAP) Human j bones dating to the Neolithic pe- riod years ago were found j I in a cave at Lavrion, 50 miles j south of Hi's Greek city, the: i French archcclogicat school an- :nounccd here.
