Sabin, president of the Israeli Weizmann Institute of Science, said he was basing his theory on information received from a person connected with Egyptian army personnel who escaped from Egypt p-ior to Nasser's death. He said in an official state- ment released by the institute: "There is reason to suspect that Nasser did not die a natu- ral death. "His death may have been caused by a dissident group of the Egyptian armed forces which is impatient with Russian policy of providing Egypt with help in the destruction of Israel but is not doing anything toward this end except by words and arms shipments." Nasser died Sept. 28. Egypt- ian officials said death was due to a heart attack. He was 52. policy." He said the government is trying to force civil servants into lerjmng French and Eng- lish as second languages too fast. Mr. Barres said the institute is unhappy that some profes- sional civil servants were laid off last summer, while the gov- ernment has decided to hire 250 French speaking persons this year. More than 'J> per cent of the institute's members were French-speaking and the organi- zation felt their numbers should be increased gradually. "Our morale is very low now and if nothing is done about it we can predict stormy weather ahead in the public service." Fined in tax case EDMONTON (CP) James A. Mickelsen of nearby Morin- ville was fined on 10 in- come tax charges. Mickelsen pleaded guilty to nine charges of filing false re- turns and one of wilfully evad- ing payment of federal taxes on Due taxes totalled Court was told Mickelsen felt "as a working man I had paid enough taxes on my salary." no matter how strongly-worded. Dr. Zayyat had been told to stress that the Egyptian govern- ment expected the Big Four, as permanent members of the Se- curity Council, to act together to make Israel implement the council resolution. MEETING SET Egypt's policy on the cease- fire with Israel will be decided at a crucial meeting to be held here later today between Presi- dent Sadat and his top military and political advisers. Hees forecasts trouble over language rights MONTREAL (CP) George Hees, trade minister in the Dief- enbaker government, said Wednesday he believes that if tlie Quebec government tried to diminish English-language rights in the province it could be the death of bilmgualism across Canada. In a speech to a west-end Con- servative association meeting. Mr. Hees said: "People in other provinces will say 'to hell with bilin- gualism' if Quebec tries to dim- inish English language rights here." He added this could lead to "one of the worst dogfights Can- ada has ever seen." far as I'm concerned I don't know wfare Quebec Pre- mier Robert Bourassa got the idea he could do this without amending the British North America Act. There have been no amendments to this act yet."

Legislature Roundup North farmers need help; native people short-changed EDMONTON (CP) Farm- ers in northern Alberto need help and the area's native peo- ple have been short-changed by Alberta NewStart, the legisla- ture was told Wednesday. An experimental project set up by the federal and provin- cial governments in 1967 to help underprivileged people, Alberta NewStart overspent its 1.7-million budget last year because of "flamboyant admin- said Dan Bouvier La "The only ones to gain from the war on poverty were those fortunate enough to get on the staff" He said the emphasis had to be shifted from research to training and job placement. "The native people should not be used as guinea pigs in a research project from which they have little hope of ending up better off than they were be- fore." Alberta NewStart should be reorganized so it can keep in touch with the people and "en- sure that more money is spent on training than on administra- tion The northeast should be de- clared dustry there. i special area ami in- encouraged to come "The native people are not willing to move. We have no choice but to bring industry to the people." Mr. Bouvier said three con- secutive crop failures have left fanners in his constituency in need of financial help to put in a crop. They need interest-free loans for a minimum of three years. Charles Drain (SC Pinch- er Creek Crowsnest) said In- dustrial development in rural areas could be encouraged if per-capita grants to munici- palities were weighted in favor of rural areas. Bill Dickie (PC Calgary Glenmore) said the govern- ment should re-examine the de- legation of powers to boards and tribunals and re-assess the role of the individual member of the legislature. Mr. Dickie, one of 10 Pro- gressive Conservatives in the 65-seat House, said the attor- ney general should proceed with an aggressive campaign to seek and stamp out unde- sirable laws, protective provi- sions should be added to trust company legislation and an in- depth study should be made into the causes of traffic acci- dents.

The chambers were invited "well over a year ago" to pre- sent briefs to Hie commission when it travelled around the province last spring and staged public hearings, Dr. Worth said in an interview. K. W. Chapman of Edmon- ton, head of the education com- mittee of tlie Alberta Chamber of Commerce, said Tuesday the commission was overloaded with teachers and that cham- bers were largely ex-eluded from invitational seminars held by the commission. Only one of the 124 chambers in Alberta was asked to send a representative to each of the seminars and the representa- tive chosen by that chamber was not allowed to attend as the inviting committee consid- ered him Mr. Chapman said. The dominance of teachers was overwhelming, he said. Of the 31 members on three com- mittees. 27 were teachers. Dr. Woith said three mem- bers of the eight-man commis- sion board have "considerable" background in business. None of the major chambers have presented briefs to date, he added. Tlie commission was willing to receive an Alberta Chamber brief even though all one of which set up a commission to administer hos- pital services, nursing homes and senior citizens' homes in the province. The Alberta Hospital Ser- vices Commission would have the power to order a plebiscite in cases where a hospital requisition against local tax- payers exceeds a certain amount. Two bills would give the province the right to borrow more money. The Alberta Loan Act, 1971, would allow borrow- ing of up to million while a proposed amendment to the Al- berta Municipal Financing Corp. Act would increase its borrowing limit by million to billion. In presenting a record billioa budget to the legislature Friday night, provincial trea- surer A. 0. Aalborg said1 the government would have to bor- row about million to meet a deficit expected in its capital account. In other business a special legislative committee was rec- ommended to investigate the Security Trust Co. collapse in 1969. The company was placed in receivership by the govern- ment in December, 1968, and ceased operations in Septem- ber, No money has yet been paid to shareholders, said Bill Dickie (PC Calgary Mr. Dickie proposed a com- mittee to look into the com- pany's affairs "with a view to determining the effect of pub- lic statements by elected rep- resentatives in 1967." He then produced transcripts from the 1967 session of the leg- islature when former Premier Ernest Manning denied news- paper reports tlie Albeita gov- ernment was worried about shaky trust companies. Mr. Dickie said Security Trust lost SI 1 million in and asked what effect 1967 the briefs were 31, 1370. to be in by Dec. statements in the legislature had on people purchasing shares. He referred to one man who told Mr. Dickie he invested wilh the companv. He also asked the attcmey- general to look into problems India withdraws from ocean study NEW DELHI (Reuter) _ India has withdrawn from an eight-nation Commonwealth study group on Indian Ocean se- curity that includes Canada in protest against the British sale of helicopters to South Africa, the government disclosed today. Storm slams into Quebec By THE CANADIAN PRESS Swirling, drifting snow slammed into Quebec province today, the fourth major storm in less than three weeks sending snow accumulation for the win- ter to near-record levels. Montreal International Air- port reported nearly eight inches of snow had fallen by 7 p.m. MST. Four or five inches more were predicted during the day. The Montreal weather office, which has been keeping records since 1941, says today's fall would send the season accumu- lation to more than 130 inches, just under the post-war record of 138.7 in 1946-47. Motorists were urged to leave cars at home. Schools were closed. Flights from Montreal International Airport were can- celled. Highway travel was vir- tually banned. Bus terminals were shut down. Chevalier centre of nostalgia LONDON (Reuter) French entertainer Maurice Chevalier, 82, was the centre of a nostalgic gathering of British stage and screen celebrities Wednesday when he attended a luncheon to mark the English publication of his memoirs. The government released a speech made last Monday by the Indian delegate to the Com- mission of Human Rights in Ge- neva sating that India would not lake part in the study group. The delegate, Leela Damo- dara Menon, said India had told Britain that it would leave the study group unless Britain gave assurances that it would not take aelion to supply arms to South Africa until the group had reported. "The United Kingdom govern- ment have rejected this sugges- tion. We will accordingly not take part in the study group." Her speech, which was not re- ported in the Indian press, was the first announcement of In- dia's withdrawal from the group set up at the Singapore confer- ence of Commonwealth leaders last January. At the time, the creation of the group was seen in some quarters as a compromise mea- sure to keep black African states from staging a or a breakaway from the the hotly- controversial arms issue. Reds boycott peace talks PARIS (Reuter) The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong chief delegates boycotted today's ses- sion of tlie Vietnam peace talks in protest against American air attacks on North Vietnam. They sent their deputies to register protests at the 105th weekly session of the negotia- tions. The gesture followed state- ments issued by chief Hanoi ne- gotiator Xuan Thuy and the Viet Cong chief delegate Mrs. Ngo- yen Thi Binh, saying the Nixon administration i s preparing "new military moves" against North Vietnam.
