Some delegates at the annual convention of the Cana- dian Labor Congress, Canada s parent labor body, Thursday unanimously supported a resolu- tion calling for an extension of democratic principles into tne the No Qiance Of Energy Policy TORONTO (CP) The Star quotes Energy Minister J. J. Greene as saying there is no chance that Canada will evef sign a continental energy agree- ment with the United States. In a story from Ottawa, the newspaper quotes Mr. Greene as asking: "What does the United States want? Do they expect us to put them on the list of countries re- quiring foreign The newspaper says Mr. Greene was replying in an inter- view to a charge Thursday by Walter Hickel, U.S. secretary of the interior, that Canada is stalling negotiations for a conti- nental energy policy. The Star quotes 'Mr. Greene as saying he would agree to talk about trade of surplus re- sources, such as natural gas, but not about a continental en- efgy policy. Talks would be held if Presi- dent Nixon calls off U.S. restric- tions on imports of Canadian oil, Mr. Greene said. member CLC to press for exten- sion of collective bargaining, to include not only the traditional subjects of wages and holidays, but also such matters as pollu- tion control, production sched- ules and the impact on workers of technological change. This sets the stage for tough future wage bargaining and a growing insistance that workers must share in management de- cisions that drastically effect tlteir working lives. The concept has been called industrial democracy by Euro- pean trade unionists and was adopted last year by Watkms Group of dissident New Demo- cratic Party supporters led by Toronto economist Melville Wat- kins at the federal NDP's Win- nipeg convention. YOUTH SUPPORT At the week-long CLC conven- tion it was supported by the re- form caucus of young unionists. Caucus spokesmen Chris Trower, a Toronto representa- tive of the United Steelworkers, congratulated the CLC execu- lelt-wing critics and creeping socialism from others. At the opposite end of the scale are the benefits already achieved by a few Canadian un- ions, notably railway workers whose contracts give them the right to negotiate the adverse effects of technological changes but not to veto the change itself; REACTION MIXED Earlier Thursday, CLC presi- dent Donald MacDonald was the target of both cheers and angry boos when he claimed a major- ity vote against admission of a BC fisherman's union was a rebuke to sinister efforts of Death Of Joe Egg Director Rapped For Innovations T Am Not Here To Pat People On The Back' Communists pervert 100-Year-Old Belgian Woman Seeks Son OTTAWA (CP) A woman in Belgium who wiH be 100 next Thursday is seeking to get in touch with a son, who may be in she hasnlt seen in 50 years.

But his praise was bruskly set aside by William Mahoney, a CLC vice-president and Cana- dian Steelworker director, who replied the executive had made no mention of industrial democ- racy in drawing up the resolu- tion. "We are not chasing any airy-fairy ideas peddled by the- Mr. M a h o n e y said. "We're just saying we want collective bargaining ex- tended in all areas that effect working people." Meanwhile, the CLC executive last week set up a special com- mittee, headed1 by secretary- treasurer William Dodge, to have a look at all the various forms of individual democracy being advocated in Europe and America and see if any more ideas are applicable to Canada. For such countries as West Germany, Mr. Dodge said in an interview, industrial democracy stands for worker representa- tion on management situation leading, however, to accusations of tokenism from labor movement. The uproar rose after the del- egates voted to support Ms deci- sion not to re-admit the member United Fishermen and Allied Workers Union-expelled in 1948 for Communist activities the fishermen merge with another congress affiliate. Obviously elated by the triumph, Mr. MacDonald leaned into the microphone and said: "I would draw to the attention of the Communist party that the deleg-ates representing the workers of Canada haive demon- strated to you what they think of your sinister efforts to try to hah: the hall Geologist Dr. Sproule Dies At 65 JASPER (CP) Dr. John Campbell Sproule of Calgary, a consulting geologist and engi- neer widely known as an ex- By JOAN BOWMAN I Herald Staff Writer WINNIPEG A production Thursday of the modern tragi- comedy, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg, was accounted "the most worthwhile contribution" so far to the Dominion Drama Festival here, this week.

He also heW out nope that the Federal Reserve Board, as con- cerned as the White House over lie continuing spectre of infla- ion will ease its monetary pol- icy later in the year. Nixon's views were expressed during a meeting with Bernard J. Lasker, chairman of the New York Stock Exchange, and dis- closed later by a presidential spokesman. While the president conferred with the stock exchange chief, the market continued its down- ward course to the lowest point in more than seven years. At the same time, Nixon came in for a slashing attack by Lawrence O'Brien, Democratic party chairman, who said inves tors had lost since the Nixon team came into office 16 months ago. Whether the stocX exchang- chairman made any urgent ap- peal to the president was no revealed by the White House. Presidential spokesman Ron- d L. Ziegler played down the ming of the meeting, pointing tut that Lasker requested it iree weeks ago, but because of le continuing market plunge any observers took n an emergency character.
