The PSAC represents employ- es of the federal government nd has about one-third of its .embers !n Ottawa. Delegates rejected a ruling by heir national executive in one convention decision Monday and accepted a compromise in an- other dispute that threatened to drive a wedge between national leaders and some of the larper component unions of the PSAC. Most of the afternoon session was spent considering a deci- sion by PSAC president Claude Edwards to transfer more than mambers from the al- liances' third-largest union to a snwll component.

Premier Barrett said It was "absolutely false" that the land commission will be buying up every parcel of land that comes on the market, as has been alleged by opponents of Bill 42. Mr. Bennett and Mr. Warren were also wrong when they said that the bill will lead to confiscation of all privately- owr.ed land in the province, the premier said, accusing Mr. Bennetl of "preaching anarchy" CAIRO (Ileuler) President Anwar Sadat has become his own premier in a major govern- ment shakeup which points to a ougher Egyptian line in the Middle East crisis. The Egyptian leader ex- pressed his disappointment at he apparent failure of recent diplomatic contacts with the Jnited States and stressed for Egyptians the importance of continued friendship with the Soviet Union.

The resolution which reversed the national executive decision said the government transfer of the UIC from the labor depart- ment to the manpower depart- ment last year was not a true reorganization but a shift of an independent commission from one jurisdiction to another.
