The gave second read- ing to a government bill thai will extend for a further five years the system that gives have-nnt provinces payments from the federal government to bring them up to the economic level of Onlmio, Alberta .and B.C. The hill was referred to a committee for study. Mr. Manning's language notably more moderate than Mr. Bennett's has been. The B.C. government is considering court action to challenge the constitutionality of the equaliza- tion system, .Senator Kugt-ue r'ursey (PC a constitutional ex- pert, repeated previous .state- ments that B.C.'s ca.se is "non- srnse" and the [iroviiu'i1 no liujK- of vanning a court Senator Piuil Martin, govern- ment leader in the Stuiate, agreed, although he mentioned different reasons.

P.K.I. GETS MOU1' Mr. Maiming said those reply to criticism of payments to Quebec use the fact that Prince Edward Island and New- foundland receive more on a per-capitu basis. The fact remained that P.E.I. receive iniNion but Quebec would receive SSOO mil- lion, Quebec was one of the origi- nal provinces in Canada. It had a 35-year hcmlslart on Alberta, which joined Confederation in 1905, to develop its resources. It hail 100 years to expand its economy. "One of the things that con- cerns people in our part of Can- ada is why should a province with such vast natural re- sources, in Confederation from the beginning, be in n position today where it requires some million subsidies from the rest of Canada. He suggested, as he had done many years ago as Alberta pre- mier, that instead of across- t h e -b o a r d equalization pay- ments, there should be a joint federal-provincial income Number One Fashion for Women and Misses'.

Mr. Sirom rose on a point of privilege to reply lo an attack on the opposition Tuesday by Ron Ghitter {PC Calgary In his speech, Mr. Ghitter rapped the opposition leader for poor atfcndanco and de- nounced (he, performance of Social Credit opposition mem- bers. Mr. Strom, a former pre- mier, said he had bcc-n absent from the House Tuesday night because he was reco verin g from influenza. As he read a three para- graph statement to the House, Chiller studied papers on his desk and never raised his eyes. "Last night, wliile I was at- tempting to recover from a rather difficult case of the Mr, Strom said, "one of the members of the assembly made a number of remarks which, al- though not of a major nature, did reflect lo some extent on my charactcr and espccially my integrity. "I can excuse the new mem- ber from Calgary Buffalo for his inexperience and zealous- ness. However, this House has a tradition of good manners and common decency which I am certain Ihe premier would wish his side of the House to continue. in no way wish- ing to stifle freedom of speech, Russell warns Ottawa on municipal activities (CP) Dave Russell, Alberta's minister of municipal affairs, warned the federal government Wednesday to go slow in the area of muni- cipal activities.

By Jan. 21, million had been com- millcd by CMHC for Alberta projects, a figure which repre- sented jobs. Mr. Russell said municipali- ties also made full use of Al- berta's allotment under the federal winter works program. Ottawa harf approved 55 projects which resulted in ill jobfi. I would suggest that members, and especially new members on both sides of the House, re- member that debating ideas is our key responsibility. "There will no doubt be times when members will find it necessary to be absent. I hope that such absences would be primarily of a constituency nature. However, the member's activities and actions here or in the broader perspective of rep- resentation should be left to the judgement of his constituents.' FOREIGN STUDENTS The government has no plans to recommend limits on enrol- ment of foreign students in Al- berta universities, Jim Foster, minister of advanced educa- tion, said in the legislature Wednesday. Mr. Foster told Grant Notlcy fNDP Spirit Rivpr-Fairview) that he had discussed the issue education ministers from Saskatc hewa n and Manit oba and that the Manitoba minister will discuss the matter of for- eign student involvement in Canadian universities with tho federal government. Ho weve r, Mr. Foster sa id, the question is detailed and complex and he preferred to get a good deal more informa- tion before going inlo specifics. In raising the point during (he question period, Mr. Not ley said the faculty of engineering at the University of Albert a has passed a resol Lit ion whi limit foreign students to 20 per cent of under graduate enrolment. The NDP leader rjupoticned whether a i Olivers if.y department should bo able to take such a step unilaterally.

U.S. Ambassador William J. Porter also appeared to rule out regular weekly meetings in tho 'uture. "As you Porter told :he Communist delegates at the session today, "President Nixon has declared next week as of national concern for our men held prisoner by you and your associates. "It would be a mockery of our concern for them to sit in this room ivith you and listen to more of your blackmail and dis- tortion to the effect that the prisoners of war issue is an 'im- aginary problem.' Therefore our side does not agree to a meeting next week. "As lor meeting In the weeks that he said, "we be- lieve it would be preferable to await some sign from you that you are disposed to engage in meaningful exchanges on (lie various points raised in your and our proposals."

Tlw 1971-72 deficit for second class was million, for third class million and for fourth class million.
