The 130 customs men at Niag' era Falls were to be canvassed for their position by local officials of the Customs Excise Union. The walkout, started Thursday by the 430 customs men in Windsor, blossomed on the eve of the Victoria Day holiday weekend, when thousands of Canadians customarily bead for the U.S. The flow of traffic into the U.S. was reported near normal Friday since southbound travellers are not checked through Canadian customs. CAN EXPECT DELAYS But bravellen have been advised to expect delays of up to 20 minutes when they enter Canada and must face inspection.

Hodgson, commissioner of the Northwest Territories, said Friday be won't be able to fulfil his plan to bring federal medical care insurance to the territories' 32,000 people on July 1 because he hasn't got the $400,000 it would cost. Speaking to delegates attending the Canadian policy conference of the United Steelwofkers of America, Mr. Hodgson, a well-known labor leader before he became commissioner, said he will raise the money "by hook or by crook" to introduce medical care in 1971. He said later in an interview the 7,000 Metis in the Northwest Territories suffer most from the lack of medical care because, unlike the 7,000 treaty Indians and 12,000 Eskimos, they do not get federal health services. Most of the 6,000 whites are able to afford medical care insurance coverage under private plans, he said. Mr. Hodgson said he chose to announce his difficulties to the steelworkers-Canada's biggest union-because the union had asked him to introduce medicare into the territories in 1970 and he had undertaken to do so. DETROIT (AP) - Walter P. Reuther was eulogized as "a giant among men" and "an architect of ideas" as his United Auto Workers Union and others paid final tribute to him and his wife, May, in simple funeral services Friday. There were 11 speakers but no religious rites for Reuther, reared a Lutheran, and his wife, reared in Judaism. They and four others died in a union-chartered plane crash in northern Michigan last weekend. There was no funeral procession. The bodies were to be cremated. More than 3,000 crowded Ford Auditorium in the Civic Centre here for the services while hundreds more heard them over loudspeakers outside. Thousands more who took the day off to mourn gathered in union halls to watch and hear by tele- vision and radio. 1 Among those inside were 10 U.S. senators, former vice-president Hubert Humphrey, two cabinet officers, the governor and three former governors of Michigan, the board chairmen of America's four major auto companies and Mayors John Lindsay of New York and Roman Gribbs of Detroit. MANY STOP WORK In many auto plants, workers were sent home when absenteeism prevented assembly lines from operating or when workers walked out after observing a period of silence in memory of Reuther. Spokesmen for the companies said more then 31,000 workers were left idle when plants shut down in Michigan, Ohio, Georgia, Missouri and Illinois. At the funeral, leaders of industry and government mingled with men from the work benches of the automotive, aerospace, agricultural implements and kindred industries where the UAW's 1,600,000 members work. Coretta King, widow of slain civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, remembered Reuther as "one who was always there when the storm clouds were thickest ... a man who marched with us and one who had the courage to be with the minority when it was right." The grained oak caskets, separated by a bouquet of daisies, stood alone on the auditorium's stage. Three large vases of red roses and beige and gold curtains formed a backdrop. Flags of the United States, Canada and the United Nations and green flag bearing a peace symbol outlined the rectangle of the biers. KENT, Ohio (AP) - Three tables covered with guns, knives, drugs, a laundry bag full of girlie pictures and other objects taken from Kent State University dormitory rooms after the campus was closed May 4 were displayed Friday. The campus was closed following the shooting deaths of four students when Ohio National Guard members wen called to the campus to quell student unrest. Items displayed by the Portage County prosecutor, Ronald B. Kane, included a .20-gauge shotgun, a pellet rifle, at le five air pistols, at least 10 blank-firing starting pistols four slingshots and two pain of brass knuckles. The display, shown to reporters under tight security at the Kent State campus, also included five marijuana plants, large selection of water pipes-used for smoking hashish-and quantities of pills and capsules identified as antibiotics, vitamins, tranquillizers, and a bottled labelled benzine. One table held nine hypodermic syringes of the type commonly used for insulin injections by diabetics. "It appears to me that some of the students were obviously not here to get an education," Kane said. Asked if items on display would be used as a basis for prosecution, Kane said no decision would be made until the investigation of the Kent State violence was concluded. Kane said no search warrants were used because the campus is state property.

WATCHERS Students Condemn Nixon Plan EDMONTON (CP)-The stu-i dents union at the University of Alberta has sent letters to U.S. President Richard Nixon condemning the American government's decision to extend the Vietnam war into Cambodia and its action against protest movements within the U.S. A letter was also sent to Prime Minister Trudeau urging the Canadian government to take a strong position against the spread of the war to Cambodia. Letters also were sent to Alberta premier Harry Strom, the Kent University students' union in Ohio where four students were killed last week during a protest against the war and to all news media in Edmonton. George Kischminder, external vice - president of the stu-dent body, said it seems unbelievable that a government finds it necessary to combat dissent and criticism with automatic rifles. meanwhile, that the Marine Corps also is investigating the alleged massacre of 38 other Vietnamese civilians by marines April 15 at Le Bac village, 12 miles southwest of Da Nang. The four to be tried are charged in connection with the deaths of five women and 11 children near the village in the Que Son Valley. The four marines were held for investigation after the bodies of the civilians were found in the dooryards of a cluster of thatched huts near the village, where a night ambush patrol of marines was operating. final  Mciattatfaa Vaftcewer';}.* ��o>* ,14 i22Z&4S MIXED OUTLOOK - Quebec and Ontario are expected to receive above normal temperature*., while the rest of the country will have near normal to below normal readings during June according to the 30-day weather outlook of the United State* weather bureau.
