Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, March C LETHBRIDOE HERALD-3 Workers said cheated The Montreal Star says thousands of immigrant workers in Montreal are being paid less than the minimum wage and many are being cheated of overtime pay. The series was researched and written by staff writer Sheila Arnopoulos GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather U.S. election reform bill supported WASHINGTON (Reuter) The Senate voted its support Wednesday for public financing of United States presidential and congressional elections despite opposition from President Nixon. The Senate took its position in a 61-to-33 vote against an at- tempt to delete the public fi- nancing section from a pending election campaign reform bill. The bill, which received im-- petus from the Watergate political espionage affair, would provide about million from the federal treasury for nominees of the two major parties' presi- dential candidates. Congressional candidates would get financial support at the rate of 15 cents per voter. Additional attempts are ex- pected to modify the public fi- nancing provision. But Wednesday's vote was the first major test of strength on the issue since Nixon, in a March 8 statement proposing some campaign reforms, criticized public financing as an extra burden on the treasury.

GENERAL FARM SUPPLIES Count Highway Box 1202 Phoiw 328-1141 By THE CANADIAN PRESS Whatever the outcome of federal-provincial oil-pricing talks in Ottawa, Canadian motorists can look back on two months when gasoline prices at the pumps largely stayed about level under the shelter of the government- induced voluntary price freeze. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press in major centres showed that the general rule was for unchanged prices, though there were a few dips and Edmonton outlets showed increases of about one cent a gallon during the last month. Des Achilles, executive director of the Edmonton Automotive Retailers Association, said members had been urged to keep prices at September, 1973, levels until the freeze ends April 1 but operating costs bad "increased dramatically" in recent months. "Some stations have simply not been able to hold the line and have been forced to raise their prices he said. Current prices are 53.9 cents for standard and 58.9 for premium grades at major outlets. Discount outlets sell at five cents' less. However, in Regina prices dropped during the same pe- riod. Regular gas now sells at 52.9, compared with 53.2 two months ago, and premium has fallen to 58.9 from 59.7. In Montreal, checks with service stations showed that most were still conforming to January prices while about a third of those checked showed lower prices. Average price of regular gas this week was 62.4 cents, down a cent from January. The average for pre- mium was down to 68.6 from 69. Prices in Quebec City, a spokesman for an oil company said, tended to dip an average cents from January, with standard gas selling on the av- erage for 60.9 cents and pre- mium at 65.9. Most Ottawa stations reported no change, though a few said prices had gone down a cent since the end of January. The Ottawa average for regular was 65.4 and for premium, 71.1. Discount gas bars ran between 59.5-61.9 for standard and 67.9-68.9 for premium.

It could trigger a debate that would end in the defeat of the Liberal minority government and a general election in July. Finance Minister John Turner in response to a question Wednesday from Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield said he did not expect to in'.-oduce his budget until after Easter. Easter Sunday falls on April 14 this year. Mr. Turner told the provincial finance ministers at a meeting in January that he was planning to bring down his next budget late in April or early in May. He told house Wednesday that his plans have Irish unveil pill law DUBLIN (Reuter) The Irish republic's coalition gov- ernment has unveiled plans to allow contraceptives to be sold openly for the first time in the predominantly Roman Catholic country, but with sales confined to married people. A draft law would repeal a 39-year-old act of parliament which made it a criminal offence to import or sell contraceptive devices. For nearly 15 years, sporadic controversy has raged over the total ban on contraceptives. The proposed new legislation is unlikely to end the debate, for it lays down that any unmarried persons, including widows and widowers, who buy contraceptives will be fined up to Opposition spokesman and former justice minister Des O'MaUey said Wednesday the proposed law might make the Republic a laughing stock around the world. O'MaUey and other critics of the legislation say limiting contraceptives to married couples will be unworkable, if not unconstitutional. The legislation may not be passed in its current form as Irish political parties are internally split over the subject. not changed and indicated it would probably be early in May. Finance department sources said it would be either the first or second Monday in May, more likely the second Monday. Meantime the strategy of the Progressive Conservative party in introducing want-of- confidence motions that are embarrassing to the New Democrats when they have to line up with the Liberals to vote against the motions has improved in this new session. The NDP members freely concede that the last two Tory motions of confidence have put the NDP squarely on the spot and voting against the motions has been "hard to live with." Members of the NDP caucus, after their regular meeting Wednesday, said there was mounting concern within the caucus that the credibility of the party was now starting to suffer with the voters because of the party's tactics in parliament. The strategy had paid off up to the New Year in that public opinion polls appeared to in- dicate that the voters agreed with the manoeuvres to keep the minority government in office and parliament functioning. But the Tory strategy has been such since the new session began that the NDP has found itself in awkward positions. The Conservative want-of-confidence motion introduced Tuesday was typical. It censured government plans to spend million on a series of pilot projects in housing, transportation, sewage treatment and other. When Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford had first unveiled this project earlier this month it was roundly condemned by NDP spokesmen as useless. They demanded action from Ot- tawa to provide housing for those in low income brackets. Happiness is... NOOK Opening Soon!
