They ignored the shoppers and also managed to catch a few rays of sunshine which poked through an overcast sky. Government may cut support EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government Is not willing to provide further assis- tance to the Marlboro Logging Co-op west of Edson unless the group does something about its management problems, agri- culture Minister Hugh Homer said in the legislature. Dr. Homer told Grant Motley the government has "carried the Co-op along with frankly tome misgivings." He said the government has sat down with the Co-op and at- tempted to work out new man- agement procedures, but en- countered some resistance to assist and unless there is a change in altilude of some of the people involved in the op- eration the province cannot continue giving support. Outside t h e house. Dr. Homer said the province has guaranteed some loans to the Co-op but could not say how much. He said It Is necessary for the Metis-Run Co-op to reduce losses on equipment and to ac- cept complete management as- sistance if it is to continue re- ceiving provincial support. He said there would be no immediate problem if the Co-op ceases to operate. The workers could get jobs with a pump mill in the area and actually receive more for their logging operations.

By CHARLES FOLEY London Observer Service As the murder kidnap-eon- spiracy trial of the American black revolutionary, Angela Da- vis, moves into its second month, the political infighting behind the scenes is becoming increasingly strident. Both sides are well aware that more than Miss Davis' future is at stake in this clash of ideologies. The U.S. authorities are more than a little pleased to he rid of one irritating thorn in their side, Dr. Klaus Steiniger, an East German foreign corres- pondent who has himself be- come something of a figure at the trial. Dr. Steiniger who is not exactly your run-of-the- mill newspaperman, being for- eign editor of his country's offi- cial Party paper, Nsues Deuts- chland, a member of the Party Central Committee and a form- er state prosecutor has been refused an extension of his visa and sent packing. Angela Davis is, of course, very big news in East Germany, where Steiniger's newspaper has been running two or three articles a day about her and TV documentaries daily carry the latest news of rallies on her behalf around the globe. For these, and indeed for everything that is being done to "Free the U.S. Communist Party is pleased to take credit. But if the USCP has turned Miss Davis into a latter-day Joan of Arc, she for her part has done wonders for the for- tunes of the ailing party. Party spokesman say they didn't believe that, in the time available to them, they could gather the necessary sig- natures to put Gus Hall, the Party's general secretary, on the ballot as a presidential can- didate. But petitioners in the streets soon found that wear- ing an Angela Davis button, or asking people to "sign for Ang- ela Davis' Party" brought an enthusiastic response, especial- ly from blacks. The campaign- ers had their signatures well before the deadline. As People's Mr. McAfee, also a Commu-i saj.s iu, wjn some World, the official Party organ in the U.S. puts it: "Mention of Angela Davis immediately underlined the connection be- tween the CP and the issues."
