Lebanese calm continues BEIRUT (AP> Lebanese authorities reported country- wide calm today for the second consecutive day. But a parlia- mentary debate on the state of emergency was cancelled and the measure apparently re- mained in effect.

HALIFAX (CP) Regional) equality is as important to Ca- nadian unity as French-English amity and continuing disparity holds" as much danger to Con- federation, Don Jamieson, min- ister of regional development, told a conference Saturday. It is for this reason the de- partment is breaking down its central administration in an ef- fort to obtain regional chal-1 lenges to the system, the minis-1 ter explained to the weekend i discussions of regional develop- ment. He said he hopes the de- centralization will produce a counter-vailing force in the re- gions to help the department develop a national policy. Mr. Jamieson said the strategy is aimed at developing j a sufficiently flexible response' to economic disparity in all ai eas of the country. B.C. mishaps claim 3 lives By THE CANADIAN PRESS At least three persons died during the weekend in British Columbia, one by drowning and two in traffic accidents. In Coquitlam, a two year- old boy drowned Sunday when he fell into his family's swim- ming pool. His name has not been released. Jeamne Mary Sargent, 4. of Wellington was killed Saturday when she was hit by a car near Parksville. A three car crash 15 miles north of Williams Lake took the life of John William Moore, 18, of Chemainus Friday night.

Australian states plan rights fight SYDNEY, Australia (AP) Five of the six Australian states have indicated they will send ministers to London to fight en- croachment on their rights by the new Labor party govern- ment or Prime Minister Gough Whitlam. The sixth state, Victoria, which has an election next Sat- urday, has not indicated its view but the Sydney Morning Herald says it is expected to join in the challenge whether or not the Liberal government is relumed. The states campaign will see Labor and Opposition Countty- Liberal party states banded to- gether against federal Labor. Two principles that most of them consider vital are at over off- shore territory and states ap- peals to the Privy Council in London. The federal government in- troduced legislation last Thurs- day to take over the resources of the offshore seabed from the states. It has indicated it will put through legislation to do away with appeals to the Privy Council and make he High Court of Australia the final court of appeal for all purposes. In London, the states would take action through the Queen, the Privy Council and the Brit- ish government. struggle for development. Disparities existed in every part of Canada but regions too cficn were parochial in their ex- amination of the problem. The economy of parts of Northern Ontario was only equal to or below that of Atlan- tic Canada and parts of the northlands of the Western Prov- inces would make the Atlantic provinces "look affluent." Mr. Jamieson said the re- structuring of his department's planning process is designed to react not only to the needs of the Atlantic fisherman but also the Metis of Northern Manitoba. He hoped for the estab- lishment of a system of quick response and decisions on re- quests for assistance. The ob- jects e was to obtain fast deci- sions from regional offices with only more sensitive requests being sent to Ottawa. However, planning would have to be "ruthlessly realistic" and it was important to under- stand "we are not captives of circumstances there is a wide range of options open." Mr. Jamieson said the identi- fication of development oppor- tunities is an important consid- eration. For instance, greater use could be made of New Bruns- wick's foiesl industry, develop- ment at the Strait of Canso in Nova Scotia could ba accelera- ted, and greater efforts could be made in Newfoundland. Flood waters recede ST. LOUIS, Mo. Mississippi River began to re- cede today from St. Louis to the Gulf of Mexico. But the prob- lems of farmers whose land lines the long and rich valley were going the other direction. "The entire nation will feel the effect of this great says Howard Waters, Midwest regional director for the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service. Waters was in Missouri, where 18 per cent of the state's farmland was f coded. A state official there predicted Sunday that "no more than 25 per cent" of Missouri's cotton crop will be planted this year. Entire farms in Missouri, Il- linois, Louisiana and Mississippi remain covered by floodwaters. The cotton crop in affected areas may already be wiped out; hopes for other crops dim as floodwaters drain slower than expected. The Mississippi River was to make its fourth and, it is hoped, final crest at its southern end today. Only then can tthe back- waters of tributaries in Loui- siana and Mississippi drain from farmland. At St. Louis, Mo., the river crested Saturday at eight feet above flood stage. Officials pre- dict it will be the end of May before it falls below flood lev- els. Damage estimated ranged from a figure is- sued by the Mississippi River Commission to a S480 million tag set by the Corps of Engi- neers. More than persons remain homeless; at least 27 deaths have been attributed to the floods. Turpin, who shot a policeman, and Lucas, who killed two dope peddlers, were the last persons to be hanged in Canada. Since then, 33 death sentences have been commuted to life impris- onment. Today MPs start searching their consciences in public again as Parliament resumes debate on whether to reinstate the death penalty for all mur- ders after a five-year morator- ium that ended Dec. 29. It's anyone's guess how things will go. Four days of argument in February gave no indication whether the majority of MPs favor another five years in which only killers of policemen or prison guards could be sen- tenced to death. The February debate was pointed up by the slaying of two Toronto policemen. Wives of To- ronto policemen collected more than 23.000 names on a petition calling for reinstatement of cap- ital punishment. Trying to determine how the MPs will vote has not been easy. A survey by The Cana- Wins award MISSOULA, MONT. (AP) A Billings ninth grader won a scholarship Saturday in the annual regional oratorical contest of Optimists Interna- tional. Danny Lee Munson. 15, was picked in competition held dur- ing the group's district board meeting. Runners up in the competi- tion were Mike Wasylenko, 16 of Calgary, and David Wilson, 15. of Kalispell, Mont.

Dr. Banks, who returned Sun- day to his horns in this Van- couver Island community from a four week trip through China, said the 16 man Cana- dian medical delegation talked with a man who "had his head open" while under the in- fluence of nothing more than acupuncture. Canadian medical officials were so impressed with acu- puncture they plan to establish special clinics in Canada to study it under controlled condi- tions, he said, adding that there is a difference between acu- puncture as a method of treat- ment and acupuncture as an anaesthetic. But the group made no defi- nite conclusions about using tlip method as a means of treatment, other that "there is a lot more to it than authori- ties over here had thought in the past." The job of the special clinics will be to evaluate this aspect, he said. Dr. Banks said medical groups in both countries will continue to exchange delega- tions and specialists to expedite the interchange of their respec- tive expertise. Watergate picture distorted NORTH HAVEN, Conn. (AP) The man who says he tended the eavesdropping equipment used last year to monitor calls from Democratic national head- quarters says the public is get- ting a distorted picture of the episode. "They have an idea that this was a very sophisticated oper- ation, but it Alfred C. Baldwin III said in a recent in- terview. The 37-year-old Connecticut native said that while the lead- ership of the surveillance mis- sion had extensive CIA and FBI experience, the job turned out to be a "Katzenjammer Kids" operation. He said he was an i FBI agent for two years. He recalled that one time dur- ing his employment with the Committee to Re-elect the Pres- ident, he was sent to pose as an anti-administration demonstra- tor at an Andrews Air Force base gathering in nearby Mary- land. He wound up being held by guards for questioning when he was the only "demonstrator" to show up. He said he also was directed to a news confer- ence held by anti-war leader Rennie Davis. He returned rath a news release, which was used to prepare a confidential report. The release had been available to anyone, he said. Baldwin said he was assigned to the sensitive bugging job without being checked closely by James W. McCord Jr., the committees security chief and former CIA agent who hired him. Soldier dies in bomb blast BELFAST Brit- ish soldier died in hospital Sun- day night after a bomb ex- plosion in Belfast's Roman Catholic Falls road area. Tliree of his colleagues were badly wounded. Early today one of the three wounded men was critically ill, while the condition of the other two was described by hospital authorities as serious. The dead man was the 32nd full-time soldier to die in North- ern Ireland this year and the 179th to be killed since secta- rian fighting broke out four years ago. In Dublin, six men were due to go on trial today in con- nection with a gun-running in- cident six weeks ago. dian Press in February elicited replies from only 91 of 264 MPs. Forty-four said they would support another five-year par- tial moratorium. Thirty-seven would oppose it and 10 were ei- ther undecided or did not reply directly, indicating they felt the government bill needs amend- ing. Assuming the bill does get into committee, two Liberals- Marcel Prud'homme of Mpn- treal-St. Denis and Jim Fleming of York West, a Toronto rid- they will attempt to have capital punishment out- lawed. They want a life sentence with no parole for at least 25 years. A lifer now is eligible for parole after ip years. The objective is to abolish hanging while appeasing those who fear the consequences of what they describe as a lack of a deterrent. This argument, however, has not been supported by statis- tics; the incidence of killings has not changed appreciably since the moratorium was in- troduced in 1987. death9 bills approved TALLAHASSEE (Reuter) House of Representatives and Senate committees of the Flor- ida stage legislature have ap- proved bills which would permit terminally-ill patients to sign statements authorizing doctors to let them die peacefully. Under terms of the legisla- tion, a doctor would be forbid- den to take "extraordinary arti- ficial steps to preserve life" once a "medically competent" patient has signed such a state- ment. On Friday, the Senate health and rehabilitative services com- mittee modified the Senate mea- sure to permit a patient to change his mind after signing a "mercy death" statement.
