Railroad for sale HALIFAX (CP) "They are the most beautiful beaches in the world, and there's no place I haven't said Dorothy Wood Kosling of Milan, Ohio, when she heard that the Nova Scotia government had decided to ex- propriate them. These 11 lineal miles of shimmering mica-covered beaches jutting into the Atlan- tic and almost acres of rugged woodland dotted with lakes located on the prov- ince's south shore have be- come the centre of the most controversial expropriation case ever handled by a Nova Scotia government. The resulting outcry, fuelled mainly by the outraged state- ments of the Kosling family to several major United States newspapers and television networks, has seen the province characterized as a banana republic seizing property from non residents 'with a bureaucratic flick of the finger." Even a decline in the flow of U.S. tourists to the province this summer has been at- tributed by some not so much to concerns about fuel short- ages as to the "anti-Ameri- can" stance of the Liberal government of Premier Ger- ald Regan. The expropriation of the Wood property, the largest privately-owned shoreline in the province, was announced last April by Lands and For- ests Minister Maurice DeLory as "a first step towards the reversal of non-resident own- ership." It has since assumed the proportions of an inter- national incident. Although the province has repeatedly denied any in- tention of stripping U.S. resi- dents of their vacation homes, these assurances have at times heightened their jitters. "We don't want to make Nova Scotia a junior-grade Newport as a refuge and pre- serve for the Pre- mier Regan said shortly after the expropriation announce- ment. "Our policy is a good policy, a necessary policy for Nova Scotians." This was welcomed by many residents increasingly aware of the limitations of a shoreline which is largely pri- vate owned. Of the miles of shoreline now in private hands. 480 are owned by non- residents. Only 600 miles are Crown land. The expropriation, the pre- mier said, was not a question of anti-Americanism "but a pro-Nova Scotia position and we make no apologies for this stand" A month after the takeover announcement. Dr. DeLory responded to a request by the besieged Canadian consul in Boston for a clear statement on the expropriation of land by assuring U.S. residents that such land assembling had been going on since 1937 and nationality was never a con- sideration. These statements did little to allay their concern, par- ticularly after the government announced the expropriation of another acres near Halifax two weeks after the Wood announcement. This was for a regional water sup- ply- John Miller, a former U.S. resident now developing rec- reation lands in the south- western part of the province for sale mainly to non-resi- dents, said the bottom fell out of the U.S. market this sum- mer.

Meanwhile, seven union of- ficials were preparing for a 10 a.m. Alberta Supreme Court appearance here to face contempt of court citations for violating a Supreme Court injunction which prohibited the union from taking strike action until next year. The workers decided to end their strike Saturday morning during a closed meeting. Union administrator Barley Home said the workers did not vote on the return to work but that the general opinion supported a resumption of ser- vices. The workers were to have started back to work Monday by maintaining normal holi- day services. The city has declined to say whether the men did return, but most arenas, indoor swimming pools and other holiday ser- vices were operating nor- mally. The seven union leaders were summoned to face the contempt citations which charge they counselled the un- ion members to defy a court order. They appeared in court Friday but.were told to obtain legal counsel and appear back in court Monday. Mr. Justice W. K. Moore told the union leaders they faced heavy Fines and possible imprisonment if they were found guilty under the contempt citation. He said their sentences would be mitigated by whether the workers returned to their jobs quickly. Ross McBain, lawyer representing the union and Mr. Home, asked the court Monday to delay the contempt hearing for 24 hours so that it could be determined whether the men were obeying the back to work decision reached Saturday City solicitor Brian Scott did not oppose the delay. A city official said Monday night that if the workers return, they will take up work where it was dropped when the men walked off the job last Thursday. Because of two earlier one- day walkouts which led to the initial injunction prohibiting strike action and because of the worker's refusal to work overtime, gar- bage collection is as much as three weeks behind. The workers are demanding that a 10-per cent raise includ- ed in the present contract be given retroactively to Oct. 10, rather than on Jan. 1, and that the second year of the two- year contract be dropped and a new contract negotiated. The workers dropped an earlier demand for an im- mediate per hour wage adjustment to meet the rising cost of living. The city has said it will talk to the union but has made no promises because of pending negotiations with other un- ions. Negotiations have continued throughout the work stoppage but both union and city of- ficials concede the talks are stalled. The strike was marred by violence as a city maintenance building sustain- ed about damage in a fire Friday night. Police and fire officials said the fire was caused by arson. Newspaper reports late last week indicated that some city workers were leaving their jobs to seek employment elsewhere because of a com- bination of low wages and the continuing labor strife. Bodies found in Ireland LONDONDERRY (Reuter) Two bodies were spotted on a mountainside near here to- day after Irish Republican Army (IRA) guerrillas said they had ssecated members of Northern Ireland's part-time army for alleged spying. An army helicopter crew sighted the bodies near the border of the Irish republic, following an anonymous telephone call from a woman saying the bodies would be found there. TWO DEPORTED PRAGUE (Renter) A West German and a Swiss businessman have been deported from Czechoslovakia for attempting to smuggle people out of the country. Of- ficials said a car equipped with a "secret space for smuggling out persons and goods" was used in the oper- ation mer but agrees in principle with what the government is trying to do. He suggested that the gov- ernment assemble recreation land in smaller parcels and instead of expropriation, use "friendly which would be cheaper in the end. The expropriation resulted in a flurry of concerned mail to provincial newspapers. A typical letter said: "Historically, around the world, expropriation has been like eating potato chips with is hard to stop until the bag is empty. When Americans hear the first do- mino fall they begin to sus- pect what the end will be." Criticism of the Wood ex- propriation centres on the fact that the government is taking the land but has no im- mediate plans to do anything with it. The government announce- ment said simply that it would remain in its present isolated state for use by naturalists and "others who appreciate an unmarred habitat." There have been sugges- tions that the government rushed into the Wood ex- propriation when it learned that developers were making attractive offers for the prop- erty. Mrs. Kosling inherited the land from her first husband and Mr. Kosling's position as former assistant attorney- general of Ohio has added weight to his protests. The family has kept the property in its natural state except for the construction of some tidewater bridges and a road since it was purchased by Burdett Wood in 1949 for spending summers in a 14-room lodge. The govern- ment has said they can con- tinue to lease the building and a portion of land. In 1936 the previous owner bought it at a municipal tax sale for Now, as the government prepares to make an offer for the one gov- ernment official says will not be substantially higher than the original rejected by the Kosling is pressing for payment of million. He said this was the best offer from a private land developer and. like all outer offer to purchase, was turned down by the family. In calculating its offer, the government has taken into ac- count that only four years ago the family successfully fought an assessment of and had U reduced to The most recent assessment was While the atlorney- general's department in Halifax prepared its case, Mr. Kosling said be still hopes the provincial government will back down in the face of inter- national publicity and pres- sure which he hopes will come from the U S embassy in Ot- tawa.
