Police said they did every- thing possible to avoid the in- cident and prevented anyone from breaking into the building, where Ambassador John MacK- enzie and the embassy staff were trapped. No one was re- ported hurt. The Icelandic cabinet was meeting early today to discuss the situation. In London, British Foreign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home protested to the Icelandic charge d'affaires and demanded full compensation for the damage. ters or any other member of the public service is said Heath. A ftw hours earlier, Lord Jel- licoe, the government's leader in the House of Lords, admitted to having "some casual affairs" with call girls and resigned. Two days before, Lord Lamb- ton, the millionaire air force minister and first cousin to For- eign Secretary Sir Alec Douglas-Home, resigned for the same reason. PAPERS SKEPTICAL Despite Heath's assurance that the government's in- volvement went no further, newspapers were skeptical. "We shall be very lucky il the people implicated in this case end with those named so said The Times. "The Lambton-Jellicoe scan- dal is far from being the end of the affair." said the tabloid Sun. Tne indiscretion of Lords Lambton and Jellicoe was un- covered by accident in a Scot- land Yard investigation of por- nography. They were forced into the open by newspaper sto- ries that, without naming any names, said prominent officials were involved with a ring of in- ternational call girls and secur- ity secrets might have been en- dangered. Amid the furore, the Opposi- tion Labor party retained two Commons seats in byelections Thursday by increased mar- gins, but observers were gener- ally cautious about attributing the increase to the Con- servatives' troubles with sex. However, one of the defeated Conservative candidates, David Bell in the industrial town of West Bromwich, commented: "The news of the last 48 hours has had its effect." The scandal is the worst to bit Britain since John Profumo, war minister in another Con- servative government 10 years ago, was forced to resign be- cause he lied in denying having an affair with prostitute Christ- ine Keeelr. That scandal didn't bring down the government ei- ther, but some observers felt it v.-as a major factor in the re- tirement of Prime Minister Harold Macmillan four months later.

S. PHONi 327.3191 lice chiefs from western Can- ada Thursday called for the re- turn of the death penalty for all convicted murderers. A resolution adopted at the annual meeting of the western Canadian Police Chiefs Asso- ciation said capital punishment i should not be restricted to kill- ers of policemen and pris- on guards. It also said execu- tion does not necessarily have to be by hanging. The resolution supported a brief to the federal government frcm the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police. Chief John Gregory of Victo- ria argued against imposing the death penalty only when po- licemen and guards are killed. "As policemen, we want no spe- cial consideration.'' "No segment of society like policemen or prison guards should be put on a said chief Chris Elnfeld of East Kildonan. Kan. The chiefs also favored plac- jing machine-guns on the re- I stricted weapons list and tight- Jer regulations for the purchase and sale of guns by gun col- lectors. Bernard Poirier of Ottawa, executive director of the na- tional association, said the o-- ganizatiott advocates capL.l punishment as being "total and permanent removal of a victed murderer from society." YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) A guaranteed annual income for residents of the Northwest Territories has been urged by a board of inquiry that studied labor relations and standards in the North. The boards report released Thursday "strongly suggests" that the guaranteed annual in- come be introduced for all aduts, with discontinuation of welfare payments and northern allowances. This would bring I "equal opportunity of an ade- quate standard of living" to all residents in the far-flung terri- tories. The report does not say what the guaranteed income should be. Other recommendations call for an increase in the hourly minimum wage to from and reduction in the statu- tory work week from 48 to 44 hours. for their demonstration and made no demands, he said.
