A spokesman for the fire de- partment said there was no wind when the first blast rocked Ashland Oil Canada Ltd. "But the wind came from the northwest after that and blew flames and everyf-hing else into an open area away from the residential and industrial said the spokesman. "Thank God for that.' Police and firemen sifting through the ruins of the chem- ical plant feared that the blasts were so severe the victims may never be recognizable. The known dead man is Ashland employee John Hersca, 23, of Toronto. The first a giant kettle used to mix off about 1 p.m. Before firemen were able to control the fire, drums of paint, oils, solvents and gasoline went off like fire- crackers. Cause of the initial explosion was not known. A pillar of black-grey smoke shot almost a mile in the air and drifted lazily over the top part of the city. As police evac- uated about 60 families and all industrial workers in the area. The explosions knocked out windows all around the seven- acre plant and blistered paint on buildings a half-mile away. Damage was estimated to be "several million dollars' by a company official. FELL OVER BODY Maurice Martin, a foreman at the plant, discovered Mr. Her- sca's body. Mr. Martin and an assistant, working in a room near where the kettle explodel, were knocked down and when they ran out through the fire, he stumbled across the broken body of Mr. Hersca, a United States citizen. "I didn't know !t was a body at he said. "It just lookel like rags. He was blown right out of the building and I covered him up with a rain- coat." A police spokesman said the kettle that blew up blasted pieces of shrapnel more than 000 feet away. "You can just imagine what happened if anyone was work- ing close to it." James Gardner, a reactor op- erator who was not on duty at the time of the explosion, said the kettle which blew up would have been Filled with a mixture of oils and sol- vents and other flammable sub- stances, all heated to 400 or 600 degrees and under pressure. The plant, which makes re- sins and other Ingredients for paints and coating materials, normally employs about 60. About 40 employees were said to have been in the building at the time. Armando Van- derminetto, 40, was one of them. "I was working on a scaffold- ing about 40 feet he ex- plained in his bed at North- western General Hospital where he was being comforted by his 14-year-old daughter Mara. "When the first explosion happened, I did not know what it was. "I thought it was the end of the world." A flying brick knocked him to the ground and he suffered bro- ken ribs. Den Nix, an employee at a nearby provincial government office, said the blast moved doors about 12 inches. "It was like a roll of thunder. It shook the whole building and dust fell from the ceiling." Two hours after the explosion, reporters in helicopter and light planes said they could see flashes through the smoke as more tanks blew up. William Whelan, vice-presi- dent of the company, which is SO par cent owned by Ashland Oil Inc. of Ashland, Ky.; said he did not know what started the fire but he added that damage could run into dollars.'1 "several million Conflict of interest legislation still planned OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment still intends to bring ir legislation laying down rules fo members of Parliament, in eluding senators, dealing wit, conflict of interest, Prims Min istcr Trudeau said Monday Such a measure was forecast a the January opening of Parlia ment. He told Opposition Lead Robert Stanfield m the Com moiis that rules also will be made public for the guidance o senior government officials anc cabinet appaintees. At the same tune the govern ment was asked by New Demo- cratic Leader David Lewis t check into reports that ens or two members of the Canadian transport commission had heli shares in Bell Canada, contrary to law. The commission recently granted Bell per mission to raise its rates. Outside the House Mr. Lewis named Anne Carver and Lava Fortier as the commissioners in question. However, a commis sion spokesman denied that ei- :her commissioner owns Bel stock. Mrs. Carver said in an inter- view that while she owned 33 shares in Bell when she was ap- pointed to the commission in February, 1972, she sold than mmediately She had bsen named to the eleeomnurilcatiors committee if the commission end said, would have been very stupid if had kept the stack A commission spokesman said Mr. Fcitier, appointed vhen the commission was es- tablished in 1957, later inherited some Bell stock. Like Mrs. Carver, he sold them right away, said the spokesman. A section of the Tratis- xxrtation Act prohibits commis- sioners from holding stock in any enterprise controlled or su- pervised by the commission. There also was renewed ques- tioning in the Commons about a "ontract former finance minis- ar E. J. Benson allegedly gave while in office to his former ac- ting firm in Kingston, Ont.

He referred to evidence Mr. Sales tax in Ontario up 2 per cent TORONTO (CP) Ontario's ales tax officially was raised o seven per cent from five per cent Monday after a long and stormy legislature debate. The controversial increase, which merchants have been col- lecting for two weeks, was the subject of an unrelenting as- sault by both the opposition par- ties. Third reading passed by a vote of 55 to 32, with all Liberal and New Democratic parties opposing the bill. Opposition critics have termed the tax in- crease illegal because of its ret- roactive aspects. Trudeau said is in his posses- sion clearing Mir. Benson of any suggestion of conflict of inter- est. Mr. Trudeau also said the ap- pointment of the Kingston audit- ing firm, was made by order-in- council, alone. not by Mr. Benson He also corrected a statement he made last Friday when he said Mir. Benson severed ties with the firm when he was elected to Parliament. In fact, said Mr. Trudeau, Mr. Benson cut the ties when he was made a cabinet minister in 1954, two i years later. Banks raise interest rates TORONTO (CP) Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce and Toronto Dominion Bank fol- lowed the Royal Bank of Can- ada Monday in announcing an increase in their prime lending rates ao seven per cent from 6% per cent, effective Wednesday. Other major banks said they were studying the increases, ex- pected aiftor the Bank of Can- ada raised its bank rate Friday by one-half of one per cent to 5% per cent.

Effective June 1, the Royal and Commerca banks will in- crease interest paid on non- cheqiring savings accounts to 4% per cent from Toronto Dominion will increase this rate to five per ceat from The three banks said they were not increasing interest rates on personal consumer loans, which remain at about 12 per cent. Toronto Dominion said rate on home mortage loans will stay unchanged. Allen Lambert, chairman of Torcata Dominion, said the in- crease in the savings to :ive per cent would bring it into ine with market rates and en- courage savings in Canada. Rates of interest paid on term deposits could be increased, some possibly immediately, to meet market pressures. He said the lending rate in- creases go part way toward lift- ing rates in Canada into line with those in other countries. They have lagged for more than a year behind interest rates in most industrialized countries. However, Mr. Lambert said :he bank will continue to give reference to the credit needs of small bonxwers to accom- modate the monetary policy of the central bank for continuing expansion of the Canadian econ- omy.
