OTTAWA i New Demo- crats and Conservatives in- dicated Tuesday they may be ready to gang i p on the minor- ity Liberal government to force early introduction of increased family allowances. Tt stalled when Jack Marshall Georee's-St. Barbei asked Prime Minister Trudeau in the Commons whether he would agree to tying allowances to the cost-of-living index. "I can only remind the Con- servative Mr. Trudeau replied, "that family allow ances paid to children of needy fami- lies would been in effect since Jan. 1 of this jear had a member sitting on the Con- servative benches not voted against it.'' This was a reference to the family income security plan proposed last summer that would have raised the average families in higher income family allowance to a month but eliminated allowances for brackets. Paul Hellyer (PC-Trinity) was the only member who re- fused to consent to third read- ing before the summer recess and the House had no chance to resume debate before Parlia- ment was dissolved in prepara- tion for the fall genera! elec- tion. Mr. Marshall replied to Mr. Trudeau Tuesday that the "prime minister is well aware of the fact that the opposition p allies were going to vote for the family allowance bill in the last session." Stanley Knowies f nipeg North Centre) then asked Mr. "Trudeau whether the gov- ernment would consider ad- vancing the effective date of new allowances it proposed recently to July 1 from noxt January. Mr. Trudeau replied. "It is the desire of the government to have them implemented as soon as possible. I believe the reason for setting the date of Jan. is due to the complexity of imple- menting the plan after Parlia- ment has voted on it.'' The new program announced by Well are Minister Marc La- londc would increase allow- ances to an average of S20 a month reszardless of family in- come. This would be taxable whereas the present average al- lowance of about is tax-free. Deaths Diary of Lieut. Col. G. A. Frencn, Officer Commanding N W.M. Police 1374.

Labor Act amendment bid defeated EDMONTON7 (CP) The opposition tried to insist Tues- day night that picketing should be allowed at a company's main office while the govern- ment insisted that only the strikers' "place of employ- ment" should be affected. It defeated an opposition mo- tion to amend the Labor Act. If the company's "place of business'' can't be picketed, the union may be powerless to press its case, said Albert Lud- wig (SC Calgary Mountain who moved the amend- ment to expand the areas v here picketing may take place. The new Labor Act. he said, could force employees at a re- i mote lumber camp to conduct their picketing hundreds of mi'es away from where the 1 wage decisions are made, i The company might easily close the camp for the winter 1 with little economic effect on the company but with lots of effect on t' e strikers. j Grant Notlcy, New Demo- i cratic Party Leader, said unions need more strength to get their message to the grow- ing number of mutli national corporations. Simnly picketing a branch office often was not enough. Labor Minister Bert Hohol argued that the consequence of a dispute should be felt where the strikers are employed.

LOS ANGELES (AP) De- fence lawyers in the Pentagon papers trial have served notice on the judge that they will ap- peal to a higher court imme- diately if he rejects their de- mand to throw out the case be- cause of Watergate and White House involvements. The defence acceded to the wishes of Judge Matt Byrne of U.S. district court to clear the trial record of all pending mo- tions, and agreed to be ready by Thursday to argue the most important remaining trial mo- for judgment of ac- quittal. Byrne told defence lawyers Tuesday that after hearing ar- guments en their motions he will announce Thursday his de- cision on whether to dismiss the charges against Daniel EUsberg and Anthony Russo because of White House entanglements in the case. The two are charged with espionage, conspiracy and theft. No court session was sched- uled for today, although the judge promised to summon law- yers if there are any new reve- lations in -his investigation of the Watergate and White House links to a burglary of the office of Ellsberg's psychiatrist. Byrne sent jurors home until next Monday without a hint of the week's explosive develop- ments and indicated he will press his investigation further. But he expressed doubt that there is legal precedent to stop the case from going to the jury. His demand for arguments immediately on the acquittal motion suggested that he might be thinking of ending the cast on another that the government bad not proved the defendants' guilt be- yond a reasonable doubt. Wounded Knee dispute over WOUNDED KNEE, S.D. (AP) The costly 70-day con- frontation between Indian mili- tants and the United States gov- ernment at Wounded Knee has ended, but the tasks of policing and cleaning up the village re- main. Kent Frizzell, interior depart- ment solicitor, estimates the government's cost since the start of the siege at million to million. Most of this would be the overtime pay and living ex- penses of federal negotiators and lawmen, along with the costs of transporting men and equipment to the tiny south- western South Dakota Indian reservation town. Driver charged in fatal crash EDMONTON (CP) Lavern Sim, 60, of Sangudo, was killed in a two car collision here.
