NDP bails out Strachan on ferry system charge VICTORIA Membrs of a special committee of the British Columbia Legislature split along party lines and has voted 6-to-4 that Transport Minister Bob Strachan did not lie to the House concerning an internal study of the B.C.

Monty wasn't trusted LONDON An official war history today described Britain's most decorated military Field Marshal Lord Montgomery of as arrogant and bumptious and a man who did not command the trust and affection of his fellow commanders. The official history of Brit- ain's Second World War cam- paigns in the Mediterranean and the Middle East said Montgomery lost friends but he won particularly the decisive El Alamein cam- paign in 1942 The history said the Montgomery did not command the trust and affectionate regard of his brother commanders in North Africa. They disliked his assumption that he alone un- derstood modern warfare. They were also not amused by his schoolboy humor. Yet again and again they subordinated their feelings to their determination to co- operate in a common and to their understanding of the unquestionable ability and worth of a disagreeable the history said. As commander of the 8th Montgomery was responsible for reversing earlier Allied defeats in leading to the eventual expulsion of German forces from North Africa.

Wendell Ford said the re- turns showed the scandal hurt all politicians it has hurt the Republicans the Democrats retained control of the state legislature as well as the mayor's office in where 37-year-old physician Harvey Sloane won.
