Conservative foreign affairs critic Claude Wagner, who told reporters March 5 that Canada should withdraw from the International Commission of Control and Supervision (ICCS), said in an interview Thursday his party is "maintaining an open mind" on the question. He said he wants to hear reports from External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp, now in Vietnam, and from Michel Gau-vin, delegate to the ICCS, before a decision is taken. New Democrat foreign affairs critic Andrew Brewin told a meeting of the Commons external affairs committee Thursday he thinks the government should make another short-term commitment to the ICCS to give it a chance to prove its worth. Conservative committee members Gordon Fairweather (Fundy-Royal) and David Mac-Donald (Egmont) said outside the committee that more evidence is needed before taking a decision on future participation. SUPPORTS EXTENSION But Mr. Fairweather agreed with Mr. Brewin that another commitment of two to six months should be granted. That point won support from John Holmes, director-general of the Canadian Institute ot International Affairs, who appeared before the committee. Mr. Holmes, assistant undersecretary for far eastern affairs from 1954 to 1960, said the impact of an immediate withdrawal would be "very bad" for Canada's relations with the United States. He said Washington is "extraordinarily anxious for us to stay," and withdrawal would be "very depressing for them." Mr. Holmes said any withdrawal from the ICCS must occur only after it is clear to the international community that it is helpless in contributing to peace in Vietnam. Otherwise, Canadian with- drawal would be a signal to the world that the peace agreement had failed, creating a "depressing or inflamatory effect." NOT WORKED WELL But he said the ICCS has not worked well since it began operating Jan. 28. Its chances for success were "considerably less than 50-50." He added, however, that it is "worth suffering a little humili-a t i o n " if Canadian participation would help keep peace. Mr. Wagner's apparent turnabout on the question of future invovement comes as Mr. Sharp begins a week of firsthand observation ot the Vietnam situation. Mr. Wagner rejected Mr tax GRAHAM - Li loving memory of my darling infant daughter, Dianne Marie, who passed away March 16,1967. She was only a sweet little rosebud, A sweet little flower from birth.

Mr. Stanbury avoided giving the commitment after Peter Bawden (PC Calgary South)- who has been gaining a reputation as a champion of the taxpayers' rights-questioned him about the expensive advertising campaign now under way by the revenue department. The advertisements urge taxpayers who want information to phone special numbers to obtain free tax advice. In the Commons, Mr. Bawden asked whether taxpayers could obtain this official advice knowing that department officials would stand behind it. Mr. Stanbury rose from his seat and in a quick comment remarked that he wasn't "permitted to give a legal opinion." That annoyed the Calgary MP who immediately got up on a point of order. "I think this is a very important question to all Canadians because of the fact that it is tax time and surely Canadians must be aware of whether or not this advice can be taken as good advice and whether the department is bound by it." Added Mr. Bawden: "I think tliis is a very legitimate question and I wish the minister would answer." Speaker Lucien Lamoureux reminded Mr. Bawden that according to the "rules and practices" Mr. Stanbury didn't have to answer the question if he didn't want to do so. Mr. Bawden shot in a last question-ruled out of order by M r. Lamoureux-suggesting that the government "be honest" with taxpayers by admitting in the advertisements that Sharp's invitation to join him on the Vietnam trip on grounds that it was only a government public relations stunt. Mr. Sharp said the invitation would allow the opposition to sea the facts for themselves. Thursday, Mr. Wagner said more evidence is needed before he could decide. He would await appearances by Mr. Sharp and Mr. Gauvin before the committee, expected next week. UNACCEPTABLE VRSION Mr. Wagner told the Commons March 5, after Mr. Sharp reported on results of the international Paris conference on Vietnam, that the conference agreement was "a watered-down and unacceptable ver- sion" of Canadian proposals for monitoring the ceasefire. He said outside the House that on the basis of available information from Vietnam the peace agreement was unacceptable and Canada should withdraw. Other Conservative MPs are known to be disappointed that their party refused the offer to go with Mr. Sharp to Vietnam. One said a Conservative could have been chosen who would not be considered a spokesman of the party in a future debate on the issue of extending Canadian involvement. Doug Rowland (NDP-Selkirk) and Eudore Allard (SC- Rimouski) are with Mr. Sharp's party in Vietnam. Disappointed with the results of the Paris conference, Mr. Sharp has said the government would announce a decision before March 23 on future participation. Mr. Holmes told the committee that very few countritis would be able to replace Canada and gain support from the combatants and great powers. Other ICCS members now are Poland, Hungary and Indonesia. QUALITY DENTURE] CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanlt Capitol Furniture Bldg. mm PHONE 328-7684 I the taxation department will not be bound by the advice and information it gave. The Calgary MP has tackled Mr. Stanbury a number of times in the Commons regarding taxation affairs. He has been unable to get any answers. Mr. Stanbury has either ignored the questions or else shrugged them off with non-answers. The Alberta Conservative has countered this by placing a number of questions on Commons notice paper to which the government will be morally forced to give written answers. Mr. Bawden's questions concern the cost and other aspects of Ottawa's expesnvie advertising campaign involving television personality Fred Davis telling Canadians that the new tax nine-page tax returns are easier to complete than they seem. He also wants to know how much Mr. Davis is getting paid for appearing in the advertisements and what qualifications the quiz show host has for advising Canadians on taxation matters. Conservative House leader Ged Baldwin, MP for Peace River, Alta., has referred to the new returns as the "nine-page challenge' '-Mr. Davis is mostly known as the host of the show Front Page Challenge. 1 IIMUTE UFFLER INSTALLATIONS MUFFLER SPECIAL Most 6 cylinder and small V8 single exhausts Ford - Chev - Dodge - Plymouth - Chrysler and Mercury 1954-64-6,95 installed FREE! 1965-69-8.95 installed FREE!

They destroyed two sections of the bridge and forced local inhabitants to make a half-hour detour to reach the nearby city of Modena. CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) -Murat B. (Chic) Young, 72, creator of the comic strip Blondie, died Wednesday in hospital. For nearly 40 years Blondie has appeared in more than 1,500 newspapers throughout the world and is syndicated in 16 languages with an estimated 75 million readers daily. Young once attributed success of his strip to two fundamentals-sleep and food. These were "things everybody does," he said. In 1970 Life magazine did a story about the history of the Blondie strip, saying "it is hard now to remember that the virtuous Blondie began as a gold digger trailing rich suitors, one being Dagwood Bumstead . . . "It is also hard to think cf Dagwood, constant seeker of raises, as ever being rich. These two conditions in fact were what kept the strip from gaining momentum in the early depression years when playboys and flappers suddenly weren't funny." It was at this point the cartoonist made a switch that insured success. He married Blondie and Dagwood on Feb. 13, 1933. Young told Life: "We just cut out all the nonsense and got in the kitchen and started talking about food and sleep and the strip really took off." In New York, a spokesman for King Features said the comic strip will continue. 52x52" - 6 only. Reg. $9.98...... 52x70" - 16 only. Reg. $12.98..... 4-99 0.49 60 x 84" - 21 only.
