Phone 327-1541 Claims discrimination black students against MONTREAL (CP) Cana. clian elementary and high school systems fail to give Ca- nadian-born blacks the same opportunities as while children, a Sir George Villiams Univer- sity professor said yesterday. Clarence Bayne, who is also chairman of the National Black Coalition Institute of Research, said teachers in many cases tend to discriminate- against black pupils "because they con- sider them as lazy, indolent and unable lo learn." "The exact opposite has proven true with West Indian and African blacks who have received their early schooling there and completed their uni- versity education he told a service club luncheon. "During the last 15 years, these foreign-educated blacks have hecome doctors, and engineers, but there is al- most a complete absence of Ca- nadian-born blacks In these professions." Homes lacking LONDON (Rcutcr) About fl.OOO young people, excluding .ourisls, now are homeless and drifting in London, a social worker said yesterday. The so- cial worker was addressing a meeting called by eight volun- :ary societies which were slart- ng a Christmas campaign for he homeless. "And there's no point of n live-born blacks aspiring to an high positions here. It's very difficult for them to beat th psychological brutality th; they have to every day. "As [ar as the children ar concerned, their fathers are tx coming militant and fearful c their youngsters' future. The don't want their offspring to b brutalized today as they hav been for the last five or Mr. Bayne said.

MORE GRAIN NEEDED ItEGINA (CP) Insufficient grain in store at the west coast ould cause "further erosion of ur reputation in serving our customers, Waller Nelson, pres- dcnt of the Palliser Wheat Growers Association, said to- lay.

(CP) A man charged with the non- capital murder of a hunting companion whose body was never found was found not guil- ty by a British Columbia Su- preme Court jury. The jury deliberated for just over two hours before acquit- ling Michael Bascom Darwin, charged wilh the shooting death of Roger Banks of Vancouver. The crown's main witness was Maxwell Bailie, who is serving a five-year term for armed rob- bery. He testified he saw Dar- "We decided lo reject the for- mer custom of a three-member board with one member repre- senting employers, one repres- senllng labor and the chairman being independent of either the premier said. We feel such an approach has merit in the [ieid if man- agement-labor relations, but wa do not feel that such an ap- proach is valid with a board whose entire thrust is to pro- vide fair compensation to work- men of the province Injured during the course of their em- ployment." MAIN CRITERIA He said the main criteria con- sidered by the government In selecting the new chairman about a week ago were that he should understand the problems cf "Ihe labor people of the prov- that he should be com- passionate lo Ihe needs of the disabled and handicapped, and that he should be an Alberlan. The former chairman of the board was C. M. Macleod who retired earlier this year. Mr. Lougheed said liis Pro- gressive Conservative govern- ment intends lo slrive for a bal- anced labor-management rela- tionship in the province. He said the Alberta labor movement had indicated a year ago that it felt it had been Ig- nored by the previous adminis- tration in terms of major gov- ernment appointments. Such a situation would not continue with the new govern- ment, said the premier. The Conservatives upset the Social Credit administration of Harry Strom about 14 monhs ago. DISSATISFIED Mr. Lougheed said he still U dissatisfied wilh compensation levels for handicapped or dis- abled workmen despite the fact the province has already an- nounced an increase in the monthly payment to perman- ently-disabled workmen to from 5175. He also announced that the portfolio investment of the com- pensation hoard's funds will move "shortly" lo the treasury department's jurisdiction to per- mit better management of the funds and provide more money for compensation.

Canada plans new role in Vietnam peacekeeping By JOHN BEST OTTAWA (CP) Signs are growing that Canada intends lo take a hard-nosed position with respect to a posible Canadian peacekeeping role in Vietnam. The official government pol- icy is that Canada would be prepared lo participate in truce supervision arangcments if il could do so usefully and if the operation held the promise of success. The decision would be taken in the light of Canada's un- happy experience as a member of the existing International Control Commission (ICC) for Vietnam, established under the 1954 Geneva agreements. Privalely, some Ottawa Infor- mants voice much stronger res- ervations than External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp when he outlined Ihe governments attitude In a slalemcnt Friday. Their comments are in part a reflection of the fact that Can- ada has not heen kepi well in- formed about Ihc progress of U.S.-North Vietnamese cease- fire negotiations, though it has been asked to make itself avail- able lo help verify Ihe ceasefire when il comes. CANADA GROPING Canada still is groping in the. dark in trying lo determine what role it might he asked to said one source. "We have not Ihe fllphlcsl Idea of what Is envisaged." The remark recalled one by Mr. Sharp Friday thai Canada had "no Inside about what Is going on between Washington and Hanoi. As far as can be determined. Canada knows no more Lhe state of the peace about talks :han has been conveyed publi- cly by U.S. leaders, notably presidential aide Henry Kissin- ger. Mr. Kissinger said Oct. 2C fiat peace was al hand, houghi n final set of talks with lie Norlh Vietnamese would lie icccssnry. This past weekend, Secretary o[ State William Ho- gers said a ceasefire still Is several weeks away. Canada has been shown nei- ther the text of the tentative agreement worked out by the Americans and the North Viet- namese nor, short of this, the part dealing with terms of ref- erence of the proposed four-na- tion truce commission. TALKS HELD Asked whether the govern- ment has specifically asked Washington for this Informa- tion, an external affairs depart- ment source said "some dis- cussions" have taken place but he declined to elaborate. Because of all the uncer- tainty, Canada refused to com- mit itself to an armistice-super- vision role when asked to do so by the U.S following Dr. Kis- singer's statement. Instead Mr. Sharp offered the 19-member Canadian delegation to the moribund ICC, already in Vietnam, for whatever on-lhe- ground services il might render when a ceasefire goes Into ef- fect. A longer-term commitment would depend on the kind of terms lhat mighl be given the commission by the proposed in- ternational peace which this country "of course" would he prepared to attend.
