(AP) Former president Richard Nixon continues to improve, and his doctors say they are going to resume the anti-coag- ulation therapy that made him prone to bleeding and sent him into shock following surgery. Nixon received a hospital- room visit Friday from Imelda Marcos, wife of the president of the Philippines. She talked to Nixon for a few minutes and said he was very weak and tired but spoke to her "with great deter- mination" and "was very interested in what is going on in the world." at her four-storey home in London's elegant Belgravia section Thursday night. The nanny, Sandra Rivett, 29, was found stabbed and battered to death, and trussed in a canvas bag on the ground floor. Lady Lucan, blood streaming from her head, ran into the streets screaming "murder, murder, murder" as she fled the attacker, police said. She remained under seda- tion in hospital today. The couple's three children, aged 10, 7, and 4, were found huddl- ed in an upstairs bedroom when police rushed to the house after Lady Lucan sought help in a nearby pub. They are now staying with an aunt in Northamptonshire. "We are treating this case as one of murder and attempted murder and we feel that Lord Lucan should be told of the details as soon as possible." a Scotland Yard spokesman said.

Lord great grandson of the man led the ill-fated charge the Light Brigade in ths owns a light Both CP Rail and the CNR were hit with walkouts earlier this week, and train service was affected. There was no service Friday. The strikers are protesting a cost-of-living bonus awarded all rail workers across Canada. The strikers say the bonus compares poorly with a settlement recently awarded to Montreal firemen. Dick Smith, chairman of the negotiating committeee for the 18 rail unions, called the protest "unjustified." The agreement would bring the minimum average salaries of CNR employees to in 1975, an increase of Voting by the workers on the new contract is expected to take three or four weeks. Meanwhile, there was no word as to when the men might return to their jobs. O'lTAWA (CP) The Com- mons gave swift approval in principle Friday to the propos- ed Canada Business Corpora- tion Act, but opposition critics said they intend to take a hard look when the bill receives clause-by-clause study in com- mittee. The act, a revised version of a bill that died with the last Parliament, passed second reading after IVz hours of de- bate. David Orlikow North) said it represents only "puny, hesi- tant and "it is really not the intention of the government to deal in a fun- damental way with the power Kissinger cheery TORREJON, Spain (AP) State Secretary Henry Kissin- ger of the United States ex- pressed confidence today his latest diplomatic globetrotting has opened the way for a nuclear arms limitation pact with the Soviet Union and improved chances for Middle East peace. As Kissinger's Boeing 707 stopped at the U.S. Air base in Torrejon for fuel before setting out across the U.S. officials told reporters the first four days of his trip, in Moscow, may have been the most productive part. Chances were said to be at least 50-50 for an arms-limitation treaty by next summer's scheduled meeting in Washington between Soviet Leader Leonid Brezhnev and President Ford. Kissinger will report to Ford Sunday afternoon at Camp David, Md. Much of next week will be spent planning the trip the two will take to Japan, South Korea and to Vladivostock, where Ford will meet Brezhnev Nov. 23-24. and growing stranglehold which the large corporations have on the life of this country." There is no existing legisla- tion requiring corporations to justify price increases, he said. But Bill Kempling (PC-Halton-Wentworth) said the bill "is probably the first step to restoring some con- fidence in business in general." "If the Income Tax Act and the competition legislation could be drafted in the same way, businessmen would probably be able to surge ahead with greater speed." Sinclair Stephens (PC York-Simcoe) wasn't so complimentary. He accused the government of having a hypocritical attitude toward corporation laws because private business controls are tighter than those on Crown operations. "I find it increasingly dif- ficult to understand why we always seem to pass legisla- tion that requires the private sector to make full dis- closure and file more and more forms; yet, when we ask for what appears to be basic information concerning some Crown operations, we are told it's none of our business." One of the main proposals in the revised bill is that a ma- jority of directors of federal- lychartered firms be Cana- dian residents. The bill also would place constraints on the transfer of shares in all public companies to prevent them from coming under foreign control. Incorporation would be a matter of right rather than privilege, and incorporation procedures would be simplified. Shareholders would have the right to initiate bylaw changes and repeals, to remove directors by ordinary resolution and to amend the company's articles of incor- poration. The bill, intended to update the existing Canada Corpor- ations Act, would affect only companies which span more than one province and this comes under federal jurisdic- tion. CUPE may face fine CALGARY (CP) An Alberta Supreme Court justice said Friday that the Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 37, "faces heavy and substantial fines" if the City of Calgary can prove that its outside workers went on illegal strike Tuesday in defiance of a court injuction.

Police also reported recov- ering more than million of the reported million ran- som paid for the release of Russian crop failure spices sugar increase LONDON (AP) Russian crop failures account in part for the sharp rise in the price of sugar, international sugar experts say. "The spark that triggered off the recent rise in sugar prices was three consecutive sugar beet crop failures in the Soviet said a senior United Nations sugar expert. The expert, who refused to be quoted by name, said in an interview that because of the bad harvests beginning in the fall of 1971, the Russians Pope denounces wealthy for forbidding births ROME (AP) In a harsh attack against birth control policies. Pope Paul today de- nounced wealthy countries which "try to solve the problem of hunger by for- bidding the poor to be born." In a 5.000-word speech to delegates attending the World Food Conference, the pontiff called for cuts in military ex- penditures by all countries to finance food aid and develop- ment projects. "Today the time has come for an energetic and binding decision." the Pope said. Then ne asked: "Or will men obstinately close their eyes to their own fate and look for alibis, for in- stance an irrational and one- sided campaign against de- mographic growth rather than get down to the essential "It is inadmissible that those who have control of the wealth and resources of mankind should try to resolve the problehi of hunger by for- bidding the poor to be born and by leaving to die of hunger children whose parents do not fit into the framework of theoretical plans based on pure hypotheses about the future of the Pope said. stopped selling sugar on world markets and began buying instead. As a result, he continued, worldwide demand (81 million tons this year) exceeded supp- ly (80 million tons) and prices began to skyrocket. In 1971, for example, the price of a pound of raw sugar landed in New York was 4.52 cents. To- day it is 67.2 cents. Increased costs of refining, distributing and marketing sugar also have contributed to the price spiral. Experts also cite the following factors: weather diminishing the sugar yield of beet crops throughout Europe. increase in world population and the ban on cyclamates has increased the demand two to four per cent a year, while sugar stocks have been declining. Padua industrialist Giorgio Montesi. Montesi, 29, was released Wednesday, one week after kidnappers hit him on the head and dragged him into a van in suburban Padua, west of Venice. The family kept his abduction a secret while they negotiated his release. Police said that after he was freed Montesi led them to the apartment where he had been held prisoner in a small town near Padua.

Police checked towns along the Venice-Milan air route, found the saxophone player and raided a nearby apartment, arresting its owner and other alleged members of the kidnap gang. When the owner denied the charges. Montesi produced the concealed button, police said. The million was found during a search of the homes of the seven persons arrested, police added.
