In an interview, Mr. Olson said tliere are "all kinds of in- dications" lhal other commod- ity groups are considering ask- ing for restrictions on inter- provincial trade, allhough (lie provinces have temporarily agreed to suspend such regula- tions.

On financing, tlic brief urges increased spending on elemen- tary education. The existing provincial grant structure which pays lower amounts for elementary grades than for secondary, is related to exist- ing needs. But increases in ele- mentary grants will encourage better services at this level, it adds. The ATA also favors an in- crease in provincial grants to encourage higher qualifications for teachers. It says that grant structures established this year base a teacher's salary on an average involving three years of training. This should be four years. In respect to teacher educa- tion and certificaiion, the ATA quoia now in force. !u Ihe 1SC9-70 crop year, the federal wheat acreage reduc- tion program resulted in only 12 million acres being planted in wheat by western farmers. katchewan border.

Letters of authority are sued to teachers who, for va- rious reasons, do not have Ihe necessary qualifications for an Alberta teacher's certificate. Many of these are teachers from outside Alheria. The association also wants to take over teacher certification.

Soviet Diplomats Ordered To Leave BUENOS AIEES (Renter) Two Soviet embassy officials today were under 48 hours' no- tice to leave Argentina after being arrested with microfilm which police sources said con- tained pictures of strategic mili- tary installations.

Tlie satellite Is to give a 30- minute warning of such an at- tack, doubling the 15 minutes jiat present systems give U.S. "orces to prepare anti-missile devices and launch bombers and missiles in retaliation. A Titan III rocket thundered away from Cape Kennedy at a.m. EST to propel the spy satellite toward a near-stationary orbit about miles above the Pacific Dcean, The Pentagon clamped a se- crecy lid on the launching and made no advance announce- ment. A brief statement after iftoff said only that4he rocket had been launched with an ex- jerimental payload. From a position above South- east Asia, the satellite's infra- red sensors could detect the ex- laust of rockets launched from the Soviet Union or China. The satellite would send the information to a ground station which is nearing completion in Australia. The alarm would then be flashed to the North American Defence Command. A rocket warhead takes about 30 minutes to cover interconti- nental range, and the sources said the U.S. and Canada would ie placed on the alert almost immediately.

In April. 1857, n year before Foyer Ste. Bemadette was opened, a fire killed 15 people in a local nursing home. In Quebec City, Premier Hob- ert Bourassa told reporters the fire Thursday appeared "purely accidental." Mr. Bourassa said a "prelimi- nary report" on the Haze also showed there were Ulree per- sons too many housed in the home. However, the building, wo adjoining three-storey du- plexes, was in "class A" shape. Firemen said the blaze fol- lowed a furnace explosion in the basement of the tome. Dense smoke rapidly filled the build- ing, hampering rescue work and asphyxiating six women and 11 men. Fourteen of the victims were found still in their beds. One was in a wheelchair and two others died later in hospital. "They didn't have a Pierre Ganepy, local fire flnd police director, said in an inter- view.

Jean Chretien, minister of Indian affairs and northern development, said Thursday night. "The 70s will be a critical pe- riod for northern Canada, Mr. Chretien loM delegates at Ihe Rural Area Dwellers Earn Less OTTAWA (CP) Canadians living in rural areas earn less money, Hve in older and more overcrowded bouses and do nol, enjoy the same health and edu- cation facilities of Canadians living in urban areas, says a report made public Thursday by Ihe Canadian Council on Rural Development. In the report to Regional Eco- nomic Expansion Minister Jean Marchand, the council recom- mended a new division within his department to be concerned only with rural development. The 3l-member council, headed by David Kirk, execu- tive secretary of the Canadian Federation of Agriculture, is fi- nanced by Mr. Marchand's de- partment but is independent of it. The council says that about 26 per cent of the Canadian popu- lation lives in the rural areas. Although they are a minority group, "it would be morally dis- astrous for Canada if, on this account, they were to be neg- lected, exploited or discrimi nated against." "They must not be allowed to become Canada's forgotten says the report. The highest priority should he given to government economic development programs designed to fill the needs of rural Can- ada.

The discovery of oil Is having great effects on northerners, he said. "The past decade has seen remarkable change in the alti- tude of Ihe petroleum industry, of governments and of Canadi- ans generally. "There is no longer any doubt that oil and gas will Ir found in large quantities in the Canadian Arctic; that it ivill be brought 10 southern markets; and that in one way or anolher, it will greatly affect the lives of north- ern residents." "The last decade was a period of concentration on the tremen- dous resource potential, particu- larly in oil and gas and mining and the methods whereby north- ern resources could !.e brought to market at competitive prices. If we fail to ensure or- derly and balanced development we shall be perpetuating the er- rors and mistakes, primarily pollution, which have become sue a hurt' .n in otlra- parts of the country a: 1 we shall face heavy Is, both social and economic. "To avoid them, we must have clearly-defined and wide- ly-accepted objectives for north- ern development. These objec- tives must be broadly-based and must ensure the co-ordination of all agencies of government for common goals. "The stakes are high. They are nothing less than the future of a third of Canada's land mass, the future of those who are commited to the North and, to a large extent, the .future of Canada itself."
