Inquiry told police force. morale is relatively high CALGARY (CP) A senior city police officer told a pub- lic" inquiry Thursday that mor- ale on the force is relatively high, particularly since the re- cent agreement on what h e called a generous salary in- crease. The testimony of Chris Stagg, patrol division inspector, was contrary to that given earlier by other senior members of the force. "This morale question baf- fles me, inspector Stagg said. "I find my department has high morale and other depart- ments are also high as far as I know." Current morale "is at least ibove fair" although there has been some dissent. SOME DISTURBED Some men were disturbed over certain disciplinary inci- dents, he said, but if morale problems do exist, something has to "hit you personally for it to affect you. Such things as equipment, promotions and salary had the greatest over-all effect on mor- ale. Inspector Stagg said that po- lice possibly were becoming iso- lated from the commuBity ami that memberships in service clubs for police officers would probably Improve relations.

Mike Berridge, former police officer, said "there was a lot of grumbling on the force be- cause it was getting advice from those who don't know anything about it." He did not elaborate on who was giving the advice.

But former prime minister John Diefenbaker told a re- porter that he doesn't believe it. Tory government starts N.B. reign By DAVE BLAIKIE FBJ3DERICTON (CP) A Progressive Conservative gov- ernment took over hi New Brunswick today. Premier Richard B. Hatfield and his 16-member cabinet took their oaths of office Thursday only minutes after Premier Louis J. Hobichaud submitted the resignation of his Liberal administration to Wal- lace S. Bird. The new cabinet represents more than half of the 31 Con- servatives elected in the Oct. 26 provincial election and includes the first woman cabinet minis- ter in New Brunswick history. Tourism is the only entirely new portfolio but for the first time there is also a cabinet minister responsible for pollu- tion control. J. C.

He dismissed it as "another American myth" invented as an alibi for the Kennedy nd- minislration. Mr. Diefenbaker said Presi- dent John F. Kennedy "Wed to run Canada like Massachu- setts." JOINED SUMMIT TALKS The diplomatic account goes like this: In December, WS2, Mr. Diefenbaker joined lilr. Ken- nedy -and Prime Minister Har- old Macmillan of Britain for the last day of their three-day summit conference in Nassau. As a result of the meeting, Mr. Diefenbaker said at the time, Canada would have to re-examine its defence strat- egy and in particular review the use in Europe ot the CF- 104 low-level bomber. President de Gaulle as- sumed from Mr. Diefenba- ker's public statement that Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Mac- millaE had made some kind of secret agreement of which France would never be in- formed. The Americans to no avail tried to convince de Gaulle privately that he had misun- derstood M r. Diefenbaker, who had gone off on holiday after the Bahamas meeting and did not get back to Ot- tawa until early January. Another complicating factor was that the Liberal opposi- tion under Lester Pearson suddenly carae out in favor of Canadian adoption of Ameri- can nuclear weapons. Mr. Diefenbaker had been holding off the Americans on this issue but would not an- nounce a firm decision one way or the other. Finally, the Americans de- cided that only a public attack on Mr. Diefenbaker would persuade de Gaulle, and the U.S. state department issued its Jan. 30, 1963, statement saying that the Canadian gov- More tourist promotion by government suggested CALGARY (CP) The pro- along the corridor and not af- vincial government should do more to promote tourism in Al- berta, a Progressive Conserva- tive MLA said Thursday.

"We have very attrative na- tural resources. Yet we have only two foreign offices to pro- mote those attractions. "We spend less per capita on tourism than Prince Edward Island does." He also said he would like to see a "corridor" system used to incorporate Banff and Jasp- er townsites as municipalities hi Alberta. "We could have a mile-wide corridor through the parks, right along the highways. That would leave 99.9 per cent of the parkland as wilderness."

PREMISE ROBARTS remains noncommittal Premier Robarts'' retirement hinted TORONTO (CP) Persistent I him to slay Mr. Harnet niraors that Premier John Ro- said. barfs will soon retire could be clarified at the expected conclu- sion today of the current session of the Ontario legislature. Premier Robarts is reported to have prepared a speech for the session's conclusion. It would come in the wake of newspaper reports that the pre- mier will resign as leader of "the Ontario Progressive Conserva- tive party within a week, Mr. Robarts issued a noncom- mittal statement Thursday night in reply to the rumors. He said in the statement: "I can only say what I have said on many other occasions, that if and when I decide to retire, I will make the announcement myself.1 Arthur Harriett, the party's Ontario organizer, said rumors of Mr. Robart's impending re- tirement have been rampant within the Progressive Conserv- ative party for several weeks. "As a result of the rumors there has been a spontaneous effort by riding organizations across the province to persuade FEELS TENURE LONG Mr. Robarts has said repeat- edly that he thinks eight to 10 years is long enough for a pre- mier to remain in office. Mr. Hobarts, 53, became pre- mier in 1961, succeeding Leslie Frost. His j.arty won the 1963 provincial election with 11 of 108 seats and maintained their hold on power with 69 of 117 seats in the 1967 election. Late last month speculation on the premiers future arose because of the cancellation of a federal Progressive Conserva- tive party conference scheduled for February. Some persons thought the conference was can- celled because the provincial Conservatives might hold a leadership convention at that time. Mr. Robarts was closeted In his Toronto hotel suite all day Thursday and would not talk to the press. Mr. Robarts, asked about the rumors, just smiled and said: "Theres been speculation for a long, long time, hasnt there?
