Astronaut boss Donald (Deke) Slaytoii was finally cleared at Houston for space flight after being grounded for 10 years with a suspect heart and with a beam said: "I feel pretty darned good." Slaylon, 48, admitted ho stood no chance of a flight in the near future but added: "I'm still confident I'll get on some- thing."

The bill now goes back to Ihc Commons. Mr. Turner, being questioned y Conservative Marcel Lam- bert, said the seven provinces equalization payments re not using the payments to cop their taxes lower than the ither jcrta find British Columbia. "They certainly are not using Hiualizafion as a means of ben- ifiUing their own taxpayers. As or whether they are spending he money wisely, under our ederal system that is a mallei 'or the people in each province o decide." Thomas Shoyama, assistan' deputy minister in tlie finance department, said there have xxa no serious suggestions that .he federal government super- vise the way the provinces spend the equalization pay- ments.

COST ESTIMATED The federal government esti- mates that the equalization pay- menls will reach hi'lion an- nually by the end of the five- yoir period of the bill. The bill also extends other federal provincial fiscal ar- rangements, including govern- ment grants to provinces to help finance post-secondary educa- tion and federal contributions to cost-sharing programs. (Tordon Ritchie phin) told the committee that provinces which charge deter- rent fees for medical services are reducing the money they re- ceive under cost-sharing pro- grams. If a patient's hosnital stay costs S20 a day and he wa; charged the cost shared equally between the federal am provincial governments woulc be Thus the province would receive from the federal gov- ernment compared with S10 if no deterrent fee was in effect. Mr. Turner agreed that such would bo the case, although he said he would not use Mr. Hit- chic's words that a province "discriminates" against its own people by charging deterrent fees.

No date was given. Sheik Mujibur Rah- man, prime minister of the new state of Bangladesh which was formerly the east wing of Paki- stan, left here recently with as- surances of wide-ranging Soviel aid in building up his country. Ihe equalization system leads to federal domination of the prov- iccs. The finance minister said the equalization bill is the product of two years of consultations with the provinces, including one meeting of premiers, seven of finance ministers and 14 of officials. The provinces were not bound lo spend the money in any particular way, nor did they have constraints on their laxing powers. Witnesses from the Associa- tion of Universities and Colleges of Canada testified that they have no objections to the bill, but also said they would prefer direct federal payments to uni- versities. Tho bill would continue the present system of making pay- ments to the provinces for dis- tribution to universities by UK provincial governments. Dr. Colin B. Mackay, AUCC oxer-utive director, said it would he "a great tragedy" if provin apparent trend lo restricting the number of students from other provinces and countries attend- ing their universities. He said he would welcome federal measures that would discourage such a trend. Dr. Mackay expressed fears that without direct federal aid to universities their auton- omy might be endangered by provincial governments.
