Several delegates said the conference should have been held after the federal budget is brought down next Monday.

I felt it was becoming more improper with each sequence in spite of his assurances that there was nothing illegal." Ulasewicz said he worried that Kalmbach apparently did not have control over who re- ceived the money or for what purpose.

Harry Patrick. United Mine Workers secretary treasurer, said the proposal was "pretty good Chief in- dustry negotiator Guy Farmer said it "could settle the contract UMW President Arnold Miller said union leaders were studying the proposal and would resume negotiations later today. The industry made its proposal as the day old strike tightened its grip on the already weakening economy. U.S. Steel Corp. announced a 25 per cent production cutback and said it would lay off employees this week. Major railroads laid off more than 000 workers. The giant Tennessee Valley Authority, with only a 44-day coal reserve, called for a voluntary cutback in electrici- ty use m its seven state power area It asked for a 50 per cent reduction in street lighting, shorter business hours, a ban on out door electrical advertising and the lowering of thermostats to 65 degrees.

If asked, members of the Commons staff "will tell you where the local bookie is for this floor in this building." ASK THE STAFF "Out of curiosity, I have asked people on the staff and they've told me where bookies are available. I'm not saying that the staff are bookies themselves." He said his comments were confirmed by a fellow MP shortly after he made his Commons speech. "One of the other MPs said he asked the same thing tonight of an employee on the Hill and he got the informa- tion right away." Other MPs, engrossed in the problems of drug dealing in Vancouver and loan sharking in Toronto and Montreal, were indignant over Mr. Lawrence's statement. Stanley Knowles, New Democratic Party House leader, sought clarification of the remarks, which he said maligned employees who serve MPs well. When Mr. Lawrence reiterated his contention that information on bookies is easy to come by, Mr Knowles complained that "my honorable friend has made the matter worse Hugh Poulin Centre) said Mr Lawrence had done "a great disservice to those who serve us here" and challenged him to name names and sites of bookmaking The outburst of indignation came during a day-long debate on organized crime, chosen by the Progressive Conservatives as the topic for the first of 25 opposition days this session. Claude Wagner, former Quebec justice minister and later a judge, began the debate by calling for a royal commission inquiry into organized crime, an idea later rejected by Solicitor General Warren Allmand. Mr. Wagner Hya- cinthe) said such an inquiry is needed to get at the social and economic roots that lead to or- ganized crime.
