WALPOLE, Mass. (AP) About 150 prisoners at Walpole state prison, angry over the stabbing of a black convict, burned the prison library and smashed furniture and television sets Friday night. A state official ?aid the nutburst apparently had racial over- tones. More than 100 state troopers vere rushed to the nearby Fox- boro state police barracks, but they did not enter the prison.

Stokes's assailant was not hut Roone said he was "almost positive" he was white. Three prisoners were treated at the prison for smoke inhala- tion. Tivo guards were cut about the eyes by flying glass and a third was temporarily blinded by smoke, Bernstein said.

The figures were produced to confirm a Tory accusation that tree former Harry Strom ad- ministration had deliberately underestimated the cost of gov- ernment spending in an elec- tion year. s The Social Credit budget speech a year ago predicted a five per cent increase in gov- ernment spending for the 12 months ending March SI, 1972. The Conservative govern- ment produced figures in its udget Friday to show that ac- ual spending increased by 13.5 er cent over the same period Provincial Treasurer Gordon WATCH!

Former Socred cabinet min- ister Jim Henderson dismissed the accusation as "so much hogwash." Mr. Henderson accused the new treasurer of "one- sided" bookkeeping. He said the governments used dif- ferent methods of keeping ac- coimts. The former government, for instance, didn't add in a cost for the estimated increase salaries to be negotiated with UK department of health, he eaid. Yet the budget Friday did in- clude that figure. The new budget estimates an 8.5 per cent increase in total spending for t'rx> year starting April The new budget is billion compared to ?1.2 billion last year. Mr. Miniely described his' new spending program as a 'hold tire line budget with mod- est increased spending in some areas of new priority."

Sell natural gas urges By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Calgary North MP Eldon Woolliams said on Parliament Hill Friday there now indisputable evidence that Canada is needlessly missing out on an estimated billion natirral gas sale to the United States. The Progressive Conserva- tive MP tackled Energy Minis- ter Donald MacDonald on the controversial topic in the House of Commons, and later declared that any objective as- sesrmcnt of Canada's natural gas reserves would show that the country could well afford to sell 2.7 (two point seven) tril- lion cubic feet to the U.S. But Mr. MacDonald told the Commons that (be national energy board's thumbs down decision on the sale still ap- peared to hold good. Until there was further evidence of new natural gas finds he could not agree, with Mr. Woolliams1 argument. Friday's hassle followed the decision last fall by the nation- al energy board that. Canada was 1.1 trillion cubic feet short of natural gas for its own long- term domestic needs. The deci- sion to reject the bitlion sale was taken by many to be a slap in the face to the west, es- pecially Alberta. Mr. Woolliams, who with two other Alberta MPs, Stan Schu- macher (PC Palliser) and Bit Ekoreykb (PC Edmonton East) have battled away at the gov- ernment to get the tiationa' energy board to reviewr its de- cision, appeared to score minor coup by pointing out tha' J. A. Armstrong, president o: Imperial Oil, Thursday said his company was "looking for' threshold reserves of five bil lion barrels of crude oil and 2< trillion cubic feet of natura gas in the Mackenzie Delta." The Calgary MP asked Mr MacDonald how the govern ment could now dispute 111' fact that not only did Canada have enough natural gas serves for its own purposes but more than enough to sel the 2.7 trillion cubic feet to the U.S. Wlien the beard rejected lite export application last fall on (he basis that Canada was al- ready l.l trillion cubic feet short of her own domestic needs, Imperial Oil had given no indication that its expected target in the north would add another 20 trillion cubic feet to know reserves. Writes verse oil statement by PM Trudeau HAMILTON (CP) Th'e president of the Canadian Clumber of Commerce, in- spired by a statement about unemployment insurance made by Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, has turned his hand to verse. Neil German, a lawyer, told a service club here that Mr. Tnxteau's statement that persons receiv- ing unemployment insurance have the right to turn down jobs inspired him to rewrite the 23rd Psalm: "The state Is my shepherd, I need not work; It allowelh me to lie on good jobs. Jt Icadeth me beside still factories It dcslroyeth my initiative. Mr. German said that Mr. Tmdeau's statement, made during a recent visit to To- ronto, "ig the type of philoso- phy and blinking that we have to he said, "it affects the attitude of a lot of people toward production."

Union and hoard of trade of- ficials described the shutdown as a tragedy. Mark Kellow, Quaker Oats corporate affairs manager, said the company had to discontinue milling operations in Saskatoon to consolidate its Canadian bus- iness. Sufficient milling capacity is available at Peterborough, to meet all present and antici- pated future requirements, he said. The centering of operations in Saskatoon instead of Peterbor- ough was "impractical without a major rebuilding program." "Complete manufacturing and warehousing facilities would be necessary. Consolidation can be achieved at Peterborough with relatively minor changes." Mayor Bert Sears said the milling company has offered full co-operation in attempting to find another company to lake over Quaker Oats' facilities. The company said It plans lo work with tho Canadian Food and Allied Workers Union and federal Manpower officials in attempts to assist employees to relocate or retrain for other johs. Union representative Clarence Lyons said, however, he doubts any employees would be able to find jobs In the flour milling In- dustry "which is closing up ev- erywhere because we've lost our export markets." "The tragedy of it is, that In the cue of a man who been there 15 or 20 years, his type of skill can't he used anywhere else except flour said Mr. Lyons.
