By TERENCE CORCORAN MONTREAL (CP) The ex- ecutive director of the Canada Safety Council said here there is no "evidence that Canada's .08 blood-alcohol test has reduced Gallic imports reduce herds WASHINGTON fAP Ef- forts to build up cattle herds in Canada have reduced sharply the flow of imported calves and feeder stock into U.S. pastures and pens, says the agriculture department. Feeder cattle imports from Canada, which averaged more than head a year a dec- ade ago, have dropped to fewer than annually, says the foreign agricultural service. Consumer demand for more beef, a spreading phenomenon in many countries, has forced Canada to reduce cattle exports in order to build up its herds, officials said. SEE THE LENS THAT DARKENS IN THE SUNLIGHT (VARIGRAY) OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO accidents caused by impaired driving. P. .1. Farmer told a joint ses- sion of the council and the Traf- fic Injury Research Foundation of Canada that "unfortunately the evidence to date does not indicate that incidences of driv- ing while intoxicated have been significantly reduced nor has there been an appreciable re- duction in accidents caused by impaired driving." Mr. Fanner said tougher leg- islation is needed to curb drink- ing drivers, including the intro- duction of roadside screening tests to be administered on sus- picion of drinking, following a traffic violation, or after being involved in an accident. Canada's impaired driving law requires a driver to un- dergo a breath test on demand, with fines of up to for refusing the test, or for having more than .03 parts of alcohol per parts of blood. STUDY MADE IN BRITAIN Another speaker also sug- gested that in Britain, where in- itial results of breath-test legis- lation showed sharp declines in accidents, the effectiveness of the legislation may have been shortlived. J. D. J. Havard. of The Brit- ish Medical Association in Lon- don, said a study taken in the years following introduction of the legislation in 1967 showed the proportion of drivers having alcohol concentrations above .08 per cent has increased by five per cent since then. In the year the legislation was introduced, fatal and serious casualties fell between nine and <14 per cent depending on Ilia time o' day. Mr. Farmer said there was no comparable decline in Canada during the first year such legis- lation was in force. Texts of papers presented were released to the press in advance of delivery. Given grant OTTAWA (CP) Agricul- ture Minister H. A. Olson an- noimceiT today the federal gov- ernment will make a grant ol to the Canadian West- ern Agribition Association of Regina. Mr. Olson said Ottawa will also contribute up to S22.00C more to match contributions of up to each from the four western provinces. The association organized its first exhibition last fall.

The most serious fires have been reported in Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia where provincial authorities are taking action to lessen the dan- ger to habitable areas. In Ontario, two new fires, one of which increased in size by 250 acres Monday, were causing concern to provincial authori- ties. The two brought to 134 the number of forest fires burning in Northern Ontario, 14 of them out of control. Tight restrictions on the activ- ities of travellers in forest lands have been imposed in Ontario. Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. In Western Canada, most for- est fires reported were small and under control. DANGER LESSENS One of the worst fires was re- ported in northwestern Quebec where officials say danger to the village of Winnewa, 45 miles southeast of Houyn-Noranda, appeared to have abated. About 60 women and children from the village were removed to safety Sunday night when a fire threatened the village's 300 population. Leo Belec. general inspector for the forest protection service of northwest Quebec, said in Noranda Monday night flames moved toward the village again briefly Monday but water-bomb- ing planes held them in check. REPORT 5 FIRES In all, five fires, covering 8 total area of 30.000 acres, were reported burning in the north- western area of Quebec Mon- day. Rain, forecast for today, was expected to ease the situa- tion. At least four major fires and 17 less serious ones were burn- ing in tinder-dry woodlands in New Brunswick late Monday night and Wilfred Bishop, natu- ral resources minister, told the legislature he will meet today with his staff to discuss the situ- ation. At least one death was attrib- uted indirectly to the fires in New Brunswick. RCMP in New- castle reported a boy was killed when struck by a truck on its way to a fire near Doaktown. The D o a k t o w n fire crossed Highway 8 twice, cutting tele- phone communications and power lines along the north siiore. BANS FIRES In Nova Scotia, Lands Minis- ter Benoit Comeau, faced with a forest fire index rated as ex- treme and continuing hot and dry weather, has banned the lighting of all outdoor fires in the province. Eight fires were reported burning in the province. two fires were reported burning Monday. fires cov- ering between 10 and 20 acres apiece in the La Loche area about 250 miles northwest of Prince Albert were reported burning Monday. fires, all under control, were reported. The largest is 37 acres 10 miles from Peace River. British largest of 318 fires reported burning in the province was a blaze on Cracroft Island, on Queen Charlotte Strait, about 200 miles northwest of Vancou- ver. Sixty men and two flying water tankers are trying to con- tain the blaze. No fires were reporled Mon- i day in Prince Edward Island or Newfoundland.
