House gives housing bill 2nd reading OTTAWA (CP) - After four days of debate, the Commons gave second reading Thursday to legislation that would launch a series of hew programs to o m b a t housing shortages across the country. The bill, which amends the National Housing Act, contains measures to promote comunity planning, curb rising land prices, preserve old residential areas in cities and help low-income families buy their own homes. It was referred to the Commons social affairs committee for detailed discussion. While the proposals won general approval, many members tempered their support with warnings that the legislation amounts to no more than a step in the right direction. Paul Hellyer (PC-Trinity), a former Liberal cabinet minister responsible for housing, said only four per cent of Canadians could afford to buy houses in 1971, a significant drop from 10 years ago.

SPECIALIZING IN THE FITTING OF EYE DOCTOR'S PRESCRIPTIONS Prescription Sunglasses - Children'* Frame* Magnifier* - Repairs - Reasonable Price* In a message to Congress accompanying a report by his Council on International Economic Policy, the president said he lias "concluded that we must face up to more intense long-term competition in the world's markets rather than shrink from it." Noting there are pressures in the U.S. to build a "shield of import restrictions of indetmUe duration." Nixon said such measures would mean higher prices and lower real incomes. Then he added in what was seen as a significantly broad exception: "Only in response to unfair competition, or the closing of markets abroad to cur goods, or to provide time for adjustment, would such restrictive measures be called for." Presidential adviser Peter Flanigan stressed at a news conference that the Nixon trade legislation-which he expected to reach Congress by mid - April - is still being shaped, but the councils report outlines the "kinds of authority the president will need to expand trade and get a fair shake for American workers." CANADA SECOND Data in the council report showed Canada as the second largest contributor to the overall U.S. trade deficit of $6.8 billion last year, listing the Canadian surplus with the U.S. at Bishop won91 interfere in convent dispute VICTORIA (CP) - Roman Catholic Bishop Remi De Roo said Thursday the situation at St. Mary's Priority in nearby Langford, is "a matter of interna! dissension" and will liave to rim its course "according to democratic process." The bishop said he was sensitive to the pain and suffering of all concerned "but I must have respect for their freedom. I am willing to do all I can but I can't arbitrarily put myself into the situation." The dissension is of many years standing and involves a sit-in by three dissident nuns-Sisters Mary Agnes Eaton, Mary Josephine Donovan and Mary Lucy Ford - who claim that Sister Leonette Hoesing was illegally elected prioress of the convent in 1965. Bishop De Roo said a meeting will be called early next month to which the dissident sisters will again be iniviled. They have refused to attend meetings for two years. Authority changes proposed EDMONTON (CP) - Legis-lation - already looked on with horror in some educational circles - was introduced Thurs-day to centralize the Alberta government's administrative au-thority over universities and colleges. The acts eliminate the university and College Commissions and replace them with an advisory committee that will work directly under Jim Foster, minister of advanced education. Mr. Foster said the legisla-tion is designed to streamline the government's funding of educational institutions. Mr. Foster told the legist ture last week there has been a " s'-atement of agreement" between the institutions and himself that the new system will not jeopardize autonomy. There will be full consultation before any major policy changes are mode affecting the institutions The bills are expected lo face major opposition from the social credit party. A third bill introduced by Mr, Foster will amend legisla lion of the advanced education department and also centralize authority by the minister over adult education programs in the province. $2.5 billion and the Japanese with $4.2 billion. However, Canadian trade officials here said Canada's own figures - perennially different from the American-showed a Canadian surplus of only $1.05 billion last year. Both U.S. and Canadian sources said they expect the American figure to be revised downward by negotiating teams which are attempting to reconcile the two countries' statistics. In its brief specific references to Canada-U.S. trade, the council report gave a clear indication of a two-fold shift in American thinking which has begun to surface in recent months. The report said the deteriorating trade balance of recent years can be ascribed "in part" to the Canada-U.S. automotive agreement, "But more importantly because we are growing more dependent on Canadian oil and other raw materials." OIL IMPORTS UP In the past, the auto pact has dominated the list of contributing factors cited by the U.S. Last year, however, auto trade moved toward equilibrium after several years of Canadian surpluses. In the meantime, imports of oil and other raw materials have risen and are expected to contribute progressively more in future to Canadian export sales in the U.S. The report added: "Some of our exports have also been hurt because the Canadian government, facing high unemployment rates, has persuaded U.S. firms to move some of their production facilities to Canada.' Tins was believed to be the most explicit U.S. reference so far to Canadian industrial policies from such an influential source as the Flanigan council. U.S. sources cited the cases of the aerospace and computer industries, both of which had established production facilitiies in Canada at the request of Ottawa, as examples of the kind of developments which "hurt* U.S. sales and jobs. EDMONTON (CP) -Don Getty, intergovernmental affairs minister, told a public inquiry Thursady there were many times he wanted to advise F. J. E. Davy to get psychiatric help. Mr. Getty, testifying at the third day of hearings to determine if there was any im- Eroper conduct by cabinet nun-iters, government employees or agents, or agents of the Workmen's Compensation Board in handling Mr. Davy, said he could never quite bring himself to tell Mr. Davy he should seek such help. He.said he may have relayed his concern to Attorney' General Merv Leitch that, "there was some possibility he (Mr. Davy) could do something that might be dangerous." Mr. Davy claims he was detained without reason at a mental hospital because he had complained about the treatment he ,'received from the WCB. The inquiry was order ed after Gordon Taylor, Social Credit MLA from Drumheller, brought the case before the legislature. Mr. Getty said he belived Mr, Davy was a man fighting ev-erybody and his frustration might explode someday. Mr. Davy had assisted him in his successful campaign during the 1971 provincial election in Edmonton Whitemud, Mr. Getty said. He had known Mr. Davy since boyhood in Ontario and after the election, Mr Davy spent time in his office expressing hope the new gov- U.S. dollar float is successful LONDON (AP) - The United States dollar rode successfully through its first week of floating on foreign exchanges. In most centres today it was above its level at the start of the week. U.S. money was weak only in London and Paris. Dollars were sold in London for pounds in order to take advantage f Britain's high interest rates, which have doubled in the last year to the highest level in Western Europe. The French foreign exchange Is hedged by strict money con trols that offset the forces of supply and demand. Finance ministers of M non-Communist industrial countries ratified an agreement in Paris a week ago that set all major currencies floating in relation to the dollar. The first test of the accord appeared to show that the monetary crisis that hit the dollar for more than two months has ended, at least temporarily. In Frankfurt, he hub of the monetary crisis, the dollar was trading by noon today at 2.8285 marks, temping the Thursday's close of 2.8260 and 2.8275 at the start of the week. Gov't planfe to use land use regulations in issue Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON - In a statement tabled k the legislature Thursday, Premier Lougheed confirmed that the promised land use regulations will be brought in to deal with the erosion of small agricultural land holdings. Tlie statement was a printed transcript of his remarks on the steps of the legislature to a protest headed by the Vulcan Chamber of Commerce Feb. 23. It said "I assure you that, the matter of land use regulations is planned by our government." The premier said the regulations will deal with corporate farming, absentee ownership "and maybe in its initial stages must deal perhaps with the agricultural land situation." The protest had suggested that large land holders were THE B.C. PEA GROWERS LIMITED LIMITED QUANTITY OF SEEE> creating problems in urban areas like Calgary as well as in rural Alberta. The legislature has since call ed for a committee to conduct public hearings throughout the province into the complex issue Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner has said he is in no hurry to see regulations estab lished to control land use. In his statement the premier made it clear that the Communal Properties Act violated the Bill of Rights and will not be brought back. The Communal Properties Act restricted the size and location of land held by Hutterite col onies. "There will be no discrimination against any group by reason of their religion, their race, their creed, their color or their age." The Communal Properties Act was discriminatory because it specifically referred to a religious sect, said Premier Lougheed. eminent could help with Ids problems. "I was unable to help him to his satisfaction," Mr. Getty said. Mr. Davy, 35, a surveyor, says he was not able to get satisfaction on disability pension claims from the WCB after back and knee injuries suffered while working in Quebec for a Calgary-based firm in 1971. He said he was seised by police and a doctor at the board's Edmonton office last Dec. 19 and held 35 days for psychological tests. Mr. Getty emphasized Mr. Davy had not been assured of a job in a meeting with Horst Schmid, culture, youth and recreation minister. Don Hartford, assistant to labor minister Bert Hohol, testified he had heard Mr. Davy intended to get Mr. Hohol's scalp by Christmas, 1973. Mr. Harford said the statement could have been figurative and that he did not know its meaning. Health Minister, Neil Crawford told the inquiry he did not know Mr. Davy was in the hospital until after the fact. Mr. Crawford said Mr. Davy, complained to h'm that a notat'on indicating he was mentally unstable had been inc-uded in his social assistance file and - he wanted Mr. Crawford to investigate and issue a reprimand. The minister said he felt it was improper to intervene personally in any social assistance file. The inquiry continues. .
