William Whitelaw, Britain's administrator in strife-torn Ul- ster, insisted that execution is not an effective deterrent.

Crime study released NEW YORK (AP) Hiring more police or paying them more won't buy better crime protection, a crime study of the United States' 30 largest cities, released Monday night. The study, conducted by the Council on Municipal Perform- ance a non-profit re- search organization in Manhat- tan, found that cities with more police per capita had higher FBI-reported crime rates than cities with lower per capita po- lice. The study also concluded that an increased police force did not result in significant de- j creases in crime rates reported the following year or year after. Arthur Carol, research direc- tor, said poverty did not seem to affect crime rates. "The federal government measure of poverty, the per- centage of families earning a I low income, is not related to crime he said.

Edgcr Hoover's former top as- sistant at the Federal Bureau of Investigation said today his late boss was a "master black- mailer" who was "not of sound mind." Walter Sullivan, assistant di- rector of the FBI until Hoover forced him to retire in October, 1971, told the Los Angeles Times Hocver's undependability was the reason that files of tele- phone taps on reporters and government officials were taken away from the FBI and housed in the White House. Current FBI Directors William Ruckelshaus said Monday the files were found in the safe of former presidential adviser John D. Ehrlichman. Jack Nekson, a Washington correspondent of The Los Ange- les Times, described Sullivan as suggesting in an exclusive inter- view that the files were taken away from Hoover because of a fear that he might use them to blackmail then-attorney-general John Mitchell and other White House possi- bly the president. "I don't specifically remem- ber mentioning tlie Sullivan told Nelson, "but we certainly had the president in mmd" when the files were moved away from Hoover's reach. "That fellow (Hoover) was a master blackmailer and he did it with considerable finesse de- spite the deterioration of his mind. "Hoover wasn't of sound a matter of fact, a high administration official i once said Hoover had been of i unsound mind for the past two j years.'"

Cheaper Manitoba eggs hit market By DAVE BLAIKIE i OTTAWA (CP) Justice; Minister Otto Lang managed to sit on both sides of the capital punishment fence Monday as the Commons renewed debate on whether to extend a partial ban on the death penalty for an- other five years. He said he personally favors abolition of the death penalty because there is no substantial evidence to prove it deters mur- der. But he v as willing to go along j with a proposed partial ban, re- taining hanging for murders of policemen and prison guards, because law enforcement offi- cials believe the death penalty gives them sorna protection. Outside the House, the minis- ter told reporters the partial ban was as far as the govern- ment cou'd go in the political climate that existed when it was first adopted in 19G7. The same was probably true now total abolition would not. be ac- ceptable. The partial ban expired Dec. 29 and legislation to renew it for five years was introduced in January. CABINET SAVED 33 The last executions in Canada occurred in 1962 at the Don Jail in Toronto two men were i banged for murder. Since then j 03 persoas have been saved' from hanging by the cabinet. j Mr. Lang said it would not be i fair to assume that the cabinet will prevent anyone from hang- ing in the future. Commutation to life imprisonment is not an automatic process and he could visualize circumstances in which the cabinet would allow an execution to occur. Grace Maclnnis also an abolitionist, said later Mr. Lang set the proper tone for debating capital punishment. "He endeavored to keep the temperature low.'' She said the debate has shaken the consciences of Cana- lians. Emotions had run so high the public had not been able to look at the issue logi- callv. TRAIL, B.C. (CP) A ship- ment of Manitoba eggs which arrived at this southeast- ern British Columbia commun- ity Monday, went on sale late in the day despite attempts by the British Columbia Egg Mar- keting Board to peraude Win- nipeg egg dealer Bob Feldman to "return to Manitoba, and take his eggs with him." Mr. Feldman accompanied the shipment here after the seizure last month by the board of Manitoba eggs, which cost him The board said the eggs were seiz- ed because they were not pur- chased through one of its li- cenced agents. Part of the truck shipment unloaded Monday went on sale in the Trail Super Value store at for a 2 %-dozen tray. Nearby in the store, B.C.-pro- duced eggs were selling for The remainder of the shipment will likely be distrib- uted among Supst Value stores in Rossland, Nelson, Grand Forks and other West Kootenay centres, a Super Value spokes- man said. The beard sent an inspect- or to the scene, but manager Ed Morgan said the inspector's arrival here was delayed be- cause the board was not con- vinced Mr. Feldtman would "tel- egraph his movements to the media" and board officials were spread throughout the area. But Mr. Morgan added that the board doesn't plan to confis- cate the latest shipment. He said the shipment was too small to affect the price structure of B.C. eggs. is a fundamental issue as I sss said Mr. Feldman. "I am not concerned about the loss of a few thousand dollars in seized eggs. I am much more concerned about having one Canada and not 10 autonomous provinces.'' He was accompanied here by Ross Eamage. an egg produc- er from Baldur, Man., and by Ned Hnilo, plant foreman for Mr. Feldman's company. Mr. Ramage said he would like to keep his eggs coming to the B.C. market. Mr. Morgan said his board attempts to maintain a stable market, which he said is bene- ficial to both producers and consumers, by ensuring all ex- cess eggs are converted to egg powder. He said Manitoba now pro- duces five million eggs more than it requires each week and the excess is shipped by middle- man to other provinces. "We want to persuade Mani- toba to keep its excess eggs and convert them into powder as we Mr. Morgan said. Saigon denies charges SAIGON (AP) The Saigon government issued an official denial today of charges by a Canadian bishop and a law pro- fessor that it is oppressing its opponents. Bishop Guy Belanger of Val- leyfield, Que., and George Le- bel, a law professor at the "Uni- versity of Quebec, told report- ers in Montreal last Friday that after returning from South Viet- nam they have proof that oppo- nents of the Saigon regime are "systematically liquidated."

At the sime time, a depart- rucnt cf the inferior official the high numbsr of deaths in the lire were ''a direct result of inadequate safety standards and industry wide poor safety practices The comments came Monday during a renewed public hear- ing on the fire. Bernard Lewis. Pitts- burg, Pa president of Corn- bus-lion and Explosives Re- siorch, Inc., and John Knise- Icy, Norln Bend, Wash., chemi- cal engineer, countered the U.S. Bureau of Mine's final le- rcport which said spontaneous combustion cf refuse near scrap timber probably caused the fire. Lewis and Kniseley said tjm- peratures in the Sunshine Mine never gst high enough to cause spontaneous combus'jo.i. For spontaneous combustion to oc- cur, temperatures would to be as high as 250 degrees fcr a "prolonged period of Lewis said. "However, it was rare for temperatures to ever reach higher than 100 degrees in the he said. Both witnesses speculated the mine fire was a "fuel rich" fire, burning a large amount of fuel in a small amount of oxygen. said such a fire bums "extremely hot and at a rapid rate and off a great amount of c.irbon monoxide." All 91 miners who died in the mine fire reportedly died from carbon monoxide poisoning. Jamrs M. Day, director cf the U.S. department cf inter- ior's officeof hearings and ap- psals, in a preliminary report on the mini; fire, said "a large I number of deaths and the mag- nitude cf the disaster are a di- rest result of inadequate safety i stf.ndards, industry wise pool- safety practices, and lack of training of miners in the event of disaster." Day's report continued, "not only are some safety standards inadequate, but they have been idi'Uled and rendered ineffec- tive by interpretaiion.'1 Escaped prisoners recaptured EDMONTON (CP) Two Edmonton men who escaped from Fort Saskatchewan pro- vincial jail Thursday night have been in Pen- tictoei, B.C., RCMP said here today.
