A mill represents about taxes for the average city homeowner. The municipal rate in 1973 was 22.27 mills. The proposed maximum tax increase suggested by the mayor would raise this to 23.88 mills, keeping the city within the 7.5-per-cent annual tax increase allowed by the province if the municipality is to receive an incentive grant. The city expects about million in incentive grants from the provincial government. French-English program EDMONTON (CP) The public school board says it is looking for parents who want French-English bilingual education for their children. J. P.

Detectors mandatory EDMpNTON (CP) City council approved the mandatory installation of early warning smoke detectors in all rental accommodation. Landlords will have one year to install the units in every dwelling containing sleeping quarters on which rent is paid. Better handling of emergencies recommended OTTAWA (CP) Better federal forecasting in handling crises is recommended in the edited version of a report com- pleted 15 months ago and tabled Tuesday in the Commons by Prime Minister Trudeau. Actions taken to implement some of the recommendations include reshaping and renaming the Emergency Measures Or- ganization created as a public defence agency during the cold war. The report was prepared in the wake of the 1970 Quebec crisis under direction of General M. R. Dare, now heading the security section of the RCMP. He began May 1, 1972, and the final report was done by the following October. General Dare edited the version issued Tuesday. "The government has accepted the main thrust of the proposals, and implementation of specific recommendations is well says the accompanying news release. "Foremost among them is that the federal departments and agencies should retain primary responsibility for handling emergencies that come within their areas of responsibility." Major management and co-ordination roles in emergencies are seen for the departments of national defence, environment and transport. The government says it has followed a recommendation calling for a small secretariat in the Privy Council office to advise the cabinet on crises as necessary. But it defers creation of a group which would operate a cabinet "situation using the vast communications net- work of the Canadian Forces. The government also announced it is altering the EMO to assist and be directed by the emergency planning secretariat. There was no indication of what was removed from the re- port as it was edited. The crises referred to in the report are both man-made and natural, international or national. General Dare describes a crisis "to mean an emergency condition and-or occurence. real or apprehended, which is of sufficient importance in the view of the government to warrant direct federal involvement in one capacity or another." The report goes on: "Crises are universal phenomena. They are, in a very real sense, a condition of existence." Crises handling in the future would be different from the past. Efficiency of communications and intense pressures from population and technological growth were likely to spawn larger and more frequent crises. It identifies three broad categories of crises: disasters and natural man-made disasters. and off-shore crises. crises. It says forecasting can be improved for natural and acciden- tal disasters. "It is difficult to generalize about the wide variety of other possible types of external threats (kidnapping of diplomats, pollution by foreign ships, unlicensed resources exploration .etc.) "Arrangements are in effect for obtaining information relat- ing to the analysis of threats from international terrorism. some types of incidents, it will be possible to determine times and locations at which they are particularly likely to occur: in others the 'risk analysis' approach will be useful; and in some cases, such as off-shore surveillance, action can be taken to provide early warning of an impending event." On social crisis, it says a systematic use of indicators is not being fully exploited. IF YOU TAKE AWAY OUR LOW PRICES YOU'VE GOT A REGULAR DEPARTMENT STORE "ONE OF THE MORE COMFORTABLE PLACES TO CARRY ON A CONVERSATION AT 100 MILES AN HOUR." Stirling Moss from his review of the Volvo 144 GL. The Volvo 144 GL, the newest addition to the GL series, was designed for people who are down to earth enough to want a Volvo, but sporting enough to want something just a little racier. So the GL provides such high-performance features as fuel injection (with a continuous injection system that insures the correct fuel-air mixture at all radial tires and a tachometer that lets you keep up with your engine. Even the driver's seat performs: it heats itself.. Of course, just now sporting you want to get is up to you. You have a choice of either a four-speed gear box with overdrive, or automatic transmission. As well as a choice of seven colors outside (including three metallic two different colored tethers on the seats inside, andan optional sunroof if you want sky-blue Overhead.
