They said that support for de- velopment of R new pact came quickly as delegates to the In t e r n a t i o n a 1 Wheat Council turned to this item or, the agenda. A council announcement lha the grain exporting awj impor ing countries agree to atten formal bargaining likely wi come Wednesday, the inform ants said. The current three-year Inlei national Grains Arrangemen Guard Withdraivn From Some Public Ottawa OTTAWA (CT) The mili- ary guard has been rom some of the public build- ngs in Ottawa placed under protection three weeks ngo, it ras learned Monday. Informed sources declined to say just which buildings are at- ected and how many troops have been taken off guard rie- :ails, though it was "not many." National defence headquar- ers was reported to be one of he buildings. Despite the relax- ation of outside precautions, lowever the building in mid- own Ottawa was still under in- creased security surveillance. Troops were brought into Ot- .awa the night of Oct. 12, two days after the kidnapping of Quebec Labor Minister Pierr Laporte and a week afier th abduction of James Cross, Bril ish trade envoy, in Montreal. Mr. Laporlfi was later stran gled by his Front de Liberatio du Quebec captors. Mr. Cross' fate is still unknown. Also placed under protectio when the troops moved in fron Camp Petawawa, north of bere were leading federal politicians high government officials an diplomats. As far as could be deter mined, this aspect of the secu ity operation was continuing unchanged. Altogether some troops are believed to have been sta Uonwl in Ottawa.

The claims were contained in a new yearbook issued by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, an independ- ent body set up in 1966 to mark Sweden's 150 years of unbrolten peace. In general, capacity in excess to that needed to exterminate the ene- gigantic on both sides. Nuclear stockpiles have be- come so vast that the "balance of terror" no longer is delicate. Substantial changes in the num. her of warheads on either side would not effectively alter the nuclear power balance, the yearbook said. The total stock of nuclear weapons of all kinds now is run- ning to tens of thousands. The yearbook said the total weight is estimated at megatons, equal to 15 tons of TNT for every person on the globe, or fio tons of TIs'l' a person within Ihe Noilh Atlantic Treaty Organisa- tion and Warsaw Pact areas. Road Death Toll Higher EDMONTON (CP) There were traffic deaths in Al- expires next June and Canada has been seeking international support for a stronger agree- ment. Informants said that (lie United States favored a more relaxed arrangement which would allow surplus-producing countries to make disposal deals below tixed floor prices. tin's led to reports that Can- ada and the U.S. were heading towards a collision that might shatter the prospects of a new wheat or grains pact that might prove more effective in stabiliz- ing world markets and prices. PACT BROKEN The current arrangement was so loosely-phrased that a world light for .markets led to many breaches of the pledged floor prices. The main exporting countries began accusing, each other of deliberate and unfair price-cutting to seize markets: which in the past have beea served by competitors. Canada argued that (here for new developments In con- tinuing education programs tor adults, which will be released "in the near future." Local school hoards, he said, have been given a substanlia amount of local freedom in cur' ricidum for all grades, and nevt programs can now be develop- ed to meet local needs, One particular, "exciting dC' vclopmertt is our work-expe- rience he said which gives students (lie oppor- tunity to work out of school, di- rectly with business and indus- try so that Ihe entire commun- ity con he a part of "what's going on in the Alberta educa- tion Federal government bilin- gual education funds will soon be available to beards, through ihe provincial government Mr. Clark said, but will be limited to about 530 per student. Asked about Ihe govern- ment's plans concerning local plebiscites if additional funds are available over and above what is approved by his depart- ment, Mr. Clark said the sys- .em was "a lesser evil than laving department of educa- tion officials directly deciding .ocal budgets." This is done, he said.

B.C. is the only province now ising a plebiscite system to raise funds for projects not of- fered provincial financial sup- port. In answer to a question form Lethbridge Separate School trustee John Boras, Mr. Clark said the government will soon receive sonic recommendations from a special committee re- garding possible revisions to the financial weighting system used for elementary, junior and senior high school grants. No suhstan t i a 1 government policy changes can he expect- ed, however, the minister said wollauu L11QL U1CIC 11. 1 1 i. wouldn't be much point to hav- boards are fte Io- ing a new agreement unless cal decision-makers, there were stronger pledges of greater hope of avoiding another price and mar- ket struggle. The International Wheat Council, which administers the grains arrangement, met last week to review the world grains situation and Io decide whether another round of negotiations would take place. Delegates reached the nego- tiation item on their agenda Vlonday and Canadian inform- ants said there was strong sup- port for negolialions conta- ence. Council officals earlier had Terror Charges Hurled BELFAST (API The out- lawed Irish liepiiblii'iin Army accused Britain today of using (error tactics in Northern Ire- land and threatened tough re- prisals. The threat underlined official fears that the two years of riot- ing and arson is entering a new and bloodier stage in the Norlii. The IRA warning came after five consecutive nights of riots in which more than 50 persons have been wounded, among them a soldier whose foot was shattered by a bomb. The trou- ble started last Thursday when troops moved in to break up a brawl between rival mobs of Roman Catholic and Protestant youngsters. In Dnndalk. across the border in the Irish Republic, two shots tired into biir where Cathal Colliding, leader of one o[ the two main Dublin IRA fac- tions, was drinking. Goulding was not hurl. In London, the defence minis- try said arms of the Irish Guards regiment were moved from Uieir regular barracks at Caterham near London, to bead off a reported IHA plot to seize them. The barracks will be vir- tually empty this weekend while the regiment :'s on leave in ad- vance of being posted to Hong Kong.
