Delegates from the member union, which repre- sents federal public servants, dealt primarily with con- stitutional amendments in their second full day of business. The union is Canada's third largest. Jacob Finkelman, chairman of the federal public service staff relations board, told the convention that the provision of more collective bargajninj rights by the government wouli not necessarily mean that nego- tiations would be easier in the future. The staff relations board deals with disputes between the government and its employees. The PSAC has been calling upon the government for more bargaining right on such items as job security and pensions. ACTION PROMISED The government has prom ised, but has not yet inlroducec legislation that might expant the collective bargaining righk of the public service. Mr. Finkelman said he ex peeled a broadening cf thi cope of bargaining rigbts when amendments are forthcoming. "However I do not want you o be under any illusion that by ncreasing the scope o[ bargain- ng, the bargaining process is going to be made ajiy easier." The union democracy debats arose over a proposed amend- ment to the PSAC constitution hat would have permitted, dis- satisfied members to leava their component union. Two PSAC vice-presidential candidates were among thosa who supported the motion that would have allowed referenda jy union members. Much has been said about de- mocracy at the convention, said Ailecn Manion, one of Ihe candi- dates, but members seemed to back off when they had a chance to extend true demo- cratic rights.

SASKATOON (CP) The adership of the Roman Cath- ie Church should irnmediale- start to prepare the whole hurch to accept a married argy, Rev. R. P. McBrien of oston said Wednesday. Father McBrien, theology rofessor at Boston College, old the western conference of riests that the "obligation of lerical celibacy" is based, on a aw of the church, not on a law God. HGHT AFFIRMED He said the Second Vatican Council affirmed the right to narry is "universal and inviol- .ble" end, consequently, sac- ed orders BO longer should be cgarded as an impediment that nullifies a marriage. "The right to marry must always remain in the diposition if the person and since this change will eventually come ibout, the leadership should be- >in now to prepare (hs general membership of the whole church so that they will easily, and for the right reason, accept married clergy." Father McBrien said Roman latholic clergy are showing wide-spread dissatisfaction with church authority and with the rigid enforcement of traditional life-styles. This is supported by the res- KnaJon c( thousands of priests during Ihe test lev; yesrs. "Tne sharp decline in candj dales for the ministry and the clergy's indifference lo voca- tional recruitment are ever more ominous indications oi what is he said. Accordingly, the church mus recognize the need for a variety f ministerial life-styles and or drawing these priests more into the decision-making rocess. Unilateral decisions eman- tiug from a monarchiai under- tabling of the church must ield to truly consultative and ven deliberate decision-mak- ig." Father McBrien said consul- ation is derived from the na- ure of the church and from he "conviction lhat tha gifts f the spirit are available to 11." He added it was essential that jriesls and others in the dioc- ese have some "meaningful Canada Trust 3rd Ave. and 7lh Si. S.

Referring to pastoral minis- trios, Father McBrien said Bishops are clearly given the pawer to innovate, without re- striction, for the good of souls. "This would include the es- tablishment of team ministries, floating parishes, student com munilies, professional or occu- pational lie said. "The only necessary elemenls for a parish are an identifiable community and a stable loral office; determined huild. ings or defined territory are ol secondary importance." Crown prosecutor's study on Davy lead to inquiry EDMONTON (CP) Ben a crown prosecutor with the Alberta attorney-gen- eral's department, told a judi- cial inquiry Tuesday he con- ducted a study of the back- ground of F. J. E. Davy and started the procedure which !ed to Mr. Davy's seizure. The inquiry, which enters the seventh day is to deter- mine whether there was any improper conduct on the part of government officials or offi- cials of the Workmen's Com- pensation Board in the deten- tion of Mr. for 35 days at a mental hospital. Mr. Casson said several pos- sibilities were considered to have Mr. Davy examined by a doctor, but did not think the 35-year-old surveyor would vol- untarily permit a doctor's psy- chiatric examination. He elect- ed to proceed under a section of the Mental Health Act that could al'ow one doctor to sign a certificate requiring further examination at the Alberta lies- pit al. Mr. Casspn is expected to comolete his testimony today.

The amendments also would have lowered the age of for handicapped per- sons to 50. ARGUE PROCEDURE Long procedural arguments by members of all four Com- mons parting ended in a lengthy decision by Deputy Speaker Gerald Laniel Salaherry) to reject the amend- ments. He argued that they would increase the expenditures proposed by the government, which contravened the rules ol parliamentary procedure. An opposition party could propose amendments to cut governmenl expenditures but could not pro- pose amendments to increase them. Tile persistence of Soda' Credit in press nu their amendments caught Ncv, Democrats on the horns of a pe culiar dilemma. While in favor of hastening passage of the bill, the NDP could not disagree with propos als aimed at increasing its ben- efits, something they also havi proposed.
