Soviet Union Blasts Agnew MOSCOW (AP) The Soviet Union charged Sunday that Vice-President Spiro Agnew's Encampment Occupant Is Jailed SYLVAN LAKE A former Edmonton man has been sentenced to two months im- prisonment for possession of marijuana after RCMP inves- tigations at an encampment near Nordegg, west of here in the Rocky Mountain foothills. Jack Buttrey pleaded guilty to the charge in court here. He reserved plea on a second charge under the game act of illegal possession of a moun- tain sheep carcass. Court was told that 17 persons are living in the Nordegg en- campment. Mr. Buttrey told the court here that he found it difficult to understand why he was the only one of the 17 char- ged by police.

Goal MONTREAL (CP) Creation of new jobs, capital in- vestment of and reduction of regional disparities should be the key economic priorities for Quebec in the 1970s, says a report submitted to Premier Robert Bourassa today. The report, prepared by the General Council of Industry, a group of 58 business leaders, contains an outline of economic objectives and development strategy for the province for the 1970-1976 period. The council, headed by Mont- real lawyer-industrialist Paul Ouimet, prepared the report in the last few months at the re- quest of the Quebec govern- ment. The report notes that the goals it proposes-in its seven- year plan "cannot be described as either projections or fore- casts but as desirable targets." It adds: "Quebec will have to put the highest priority on the mainte- nance of an economic climate which generates confidence, en- courages private saving, at- tracts external capital and prov- ides adequate rewards for risk- taking." FOCUS ON JOBLESS The report focuses on the province's chronically high un- employment level which stood at 6.9 per cent last year, com- pared with a four-per-cent aver- age for the rest of Canada and a 3.2-per-cert average in Ontario. A reduction in the unemploy- ment level to about four per cent was considered both desir- able and feasible. But to do so, the report says, between and new jobs will have to be created over the seven- average of new jobs prov- ided yearly between 1967 and 1969.
