This included cases where the woman's contribution was limited to housework and the raising of children Mr Munro said the public service already has been or- dered to give women greater consideration for senior posts.

Mr Lemieux said in an interview he has not heard from his client and has no idea his whereabouts "but he wouldn't leave Quebec." "This is nothing more than he added A warrant for the arrest of 26-year-old Jacques Rose was issued last week after he failed to comply with one of his bail to his probation officer. Rose was free on bail pending the outcome of an appeal against his July conviction of being an accessory after the fact in the abduction and slaying of former Quebec labor minister, Pierre Laporte, in October, 1970. 'A LITTLE TIRED' Mr. Lemieux said Rose may have decided not to keep his appointment with his probation officer because "he got a little tired of police harassment" "He was free, but to an ex- JACQUES ROSE tent was under greater surveillance than he would have been in said Mr. Lemieux.

OTTAWA (CP) T.C. Douglas- renewed the New Democratic Party's campaign against the "corporate rip- off" Tuesday, calling for a full-scale public investigation of oil company profits. "The fact is that oil profits are a national he told a nearly deserted Commons Mr. Douglas (Nanaimo- Cowichan-The Islands) said Imperial Oil Ltd. profits rose by 45 per cent in 1973, Shell Oil's by 43 per cent and Gulf's by 58 per cent. "These were the highest profits that Gulf Oil had enjoyed in all its history. For the fourth quarter of 1973, the profits of oil companies increased by per cent The figures themselves were not new, but Mr. Douglas used them to reinforce his suggestion of an investigation of the com- panies' profits He also resurrected a state- ment by Prime Minister Trudeau last week which said the government will not allow "corporate profiteers and gougers to pile up windfall profits at the expense of the people." Mr. Douglas said the words should be engraved in stone as a visible reminder to Mr. Trudeau. "I say to the prime minister that the profiteers and gougers are profiteering and gouging right now. What does your government intend to do about if" He said a United States Sen- ate investigation revealed "a situation m companies like Exxon (Imperial's parent company) that borders on economic piracy."
