The transport ships mil be es- corted whenever they sail rough or coastal waters and the rail- way cars, which will carry the containers from the Washington port of Bangor 250 miles to their final destination, near Hermis- lon, Ore., will be accompanied by specially-trained safety crews. The gas shipment will pass through the Juan de Fuca Strait off British Columbia and Can- ada has opposed this. External Affairs Minister Sharp of Canada said in the House of Commons Wednesday he still hopes the U.S. will not make the shipment or will use another route.

Japanese Yachtsman Begins Trip OSAKA (CP-AP) -A Japa- nese electrical engineer left this western Japan port today aboard a 16-foot yacht on a trans-Pacific solo voyage which he hopes will carry him to Van- couver in 90 days, despite warn- ings from the Maritime Safety Agency. Agency officials tried to dis- suade Minoru Negayoshi, 22, from making the trip because they said he had only two years of yachting in coastal waters. MSA officials said Nagayoshi equipped his yacht, the Calypso II, with a radio receiver, but not a trans- mitter. Nagayoshi said before he left that he had enough food and water aboard to last him 120 days. He decided to take this trip to Vancouver after United States officials de- clined to give him an entry visa because an application he filed lacked details. Several Japanese have sailed alone across the Pacific to the U.S. West Coast, but Nagayoshi is the first to sail for Canada.

Civic Funds Theft Probe Approved CALGARY (CP) Mayor Rod Sykes said Wednesday he has obtained agreement from Attorney-General Edgar Ger- hart to conduct an independent inquiry into city transit system thefts and other suspected mis- handling of public funds by some civic employees. Such an inquiry is "the only way of clearing the the mayor said in an interview. He said he had discussed the general background of the sit- uation with Mr. Gerhart this week and had given bis rea- sons why an independent in- quiry is necessary to "restore confidence in the ability of city hall to manage the people's business efficiently and effec- tively." Mayor Sykes said the need for the inquiry is indicated in a special report to the police commission from the police de- partment. The report has not been made public. SCHOLAR DIES TOKYO (AP) Ma Hsu-lun, 86, a noted scholar who helped draft Communist China's consti- tution and design its national flag, died in Peking Monday, the New China news agency re- ported today. "The contract is not quite as good as we said Ron Brown, local president, "but it's better to accept this than jeop- ardize the citizens of Calgary with -a strike." The contract calls for a fouT- per-cent increase retroactive to Nov. 1, 1969, and five-per-cent increases Jan. 1, 1970, July 1, 1970 and July 1, 1971. The increases will boost hour- ly pay scales from a current range of to to and Meanwhile, Mayor Rod Sykes said he intends to form a spe- cial committee to study the en- tire question of the city's ad- ministrative salaries. The city's finance committee recommended Tuesday that ad- ministrative salaries be re- duced to 1968 levels. The proposal, if adopted by city council, would mean salary reductions of to for 240 senior management mem- bers of the Association of Pro- fessional and Technical Admin- istrators. The professional civic work- ers were due for salary in- creases under an incremental payment policy adopted by a previous council which involves starting a person at a wage be- low level for the job, automatically i n c r e a sing the salary each year until the top bracket as reached. The reduction would be effec- tive May 1. Mayor Sykes said the admin- istrative increases had been a major stumbling block in ne- gotiations with the outside workers.

DAILY FOR AIL ELK MEMBERS AND GUESTS Race Betting Operators Remanded CALGARY (CP) Two men and a woman, charged jointly with conspiracy to commit an indictable offence, were re- manded to May 13 when they appeared Wednesday in Magis- trate's Court. Kenneth Williams of Edmon- ton and William Adams and Kathleen Phillips, both of Cal- gary, were charged after police raided an off-track betting op- eration Tuesday. Bail was set at for Wil- liams, for Phillips and Adams was released on his own recognizance. When the off-track betting shop opened Monday, Mr. Wil- liams said it hoped to avoid a c r i mi nal code amendment which made it illegal to take bets to a track for a considera- tion. The operation involved two W. Enterprises, which was to take bets to the track for free, and Pan Dis- counts, which was to cash win- ning tickets for a fee. Police said cons piracy charges were laid because the two companies were not sep- arate but consulted each other on their respective operations and therefore conspired to com- mit an offence. WINNIPEG (CP) A bill that would allow the establish- ment of compulsory govern- ment automobile insurance was distributed to the Manitoba leg- islature Wednesday.' The enabling legislation calls for the establishment of a Mani- toba public insurance corpora- tion. It would have the power to administer such plans as may be decided by the government, including .a system of universal compulsory auto insurance. The bill was distributed by Municipal Affairs Minister Howard Pawley, who said he will outline the government's in- tentions when it comes up for second reading Friday. The bill would also enable the cabinet t" advance funds from the provincial treasury for ini- tial financing of the corpora- tion. This money would go into the insurance fund, along with pre- miums paid under a basic com- pulsory plan. All benefits under a basic compulsory plan would come from the insurance fund. A section of the act would give the corporation, st the cabinet's descretion, power to provide coverage in excess of the basic.plan, under the regul- ations of the province's existing Insurance Act. However, premiums received, or benefits paid out for the cov- erage in e x c e s s of the basic plan would not involve the in- surance fund. The bill does not spell out how premiums would be set, but leaves setting of premiums, and any more mode or system Regulations On Lotteries Under Way EDMONTON (CP) Deputy Attorney General John Hart said Wednesday that specific regulations governing- the li- censing of .lotteries in Alberta will likely be drawn up within the next two months. Police departments and the RCMP now determine who is li- censed except for new lotteries involving prizes of more than Here the decision is made by the attorney-general's department. Mr. Hart said that several ap- plications have been rejected by the government because the or- ganization itself or its specific lottery plans did not meet ap- proval. He would not say bow maoy were rejected or name the organizations. He said the new regulations will be drafted from govern- ment experience with the most common types of applications. They will leave some discre- tionary powers in granting li- cences to the department. Bomb Blasts Post Office MONTREAL (CP) A-pow- erful dynamite bomb heavily damaged an east-end post office substation and slightly injured a passerby early today. Jacques Denis, 39, was re- leased from hospital after treat- ment for lacerations and bruises when he was thrown cgainst r. wall by the force Of the blast. It came at the end of what a post office spokesman described as one of the "worst days of vandalism" in the post office's dispute with truck drivers for- merly employed by G. Lapalme Inc. Police and postal authorities reported 25 incidents of violence Wednesday including a molotov cocktail tossed into a post off- ice, rocks thrown into the resi- dence of a newly-hired post off- ice delivery driver, damage to 22 recently-purchased vehicles and molasses poured into a mail boi, of classifying drivers" to cabinet. The bill would enable the cor- poration to raise premiums in cases where an insurance certi- ficate had been issued to a driver who withheld informa- tion affecting his classification. It would also allow establish- ment of a cabinet appointed rates appeal board, "to hear and determine all appeals res- pecting the fixation of addi- tional premium rates." The biU makes no mention of the type of coverage which would be supplied under any basic compulsory plan, leaving this to a cabinet decision as well. Opposition Plans To Fight BUI WINNIPEG- (CP) Opposi- tion Leader Walter Weir said today the government's auto- mobile insurance bill contains a blank cheque for "ditatorial powers" and the Conservative party will fight it "all the way down the line." The Conservative leader told a news conference that the en- abling legislation, introduced to the legislature Wednesday by the New Democratic Party gov- ernment, gives the government the right to establish any plan or regulations without further reference to the legislature.
