"There may be political nego- tiations going on between Mr. Drapeau and Ottawa but noth- ing has come before treasury board at this the spokesman said. He noted that some money, under programs such as those administered by Central Mort- gage and Housing, would be available to Montreal as it would be to any municipality in the country lor approved con- struction projects. But no negotiations have been started lo broaden regulations and make more money avail- able, he said.

LOTTERY MENTIONED Mr. Drapeau, who did not elaborate on his reference to negotiations but said "a clearer picture" would emerge In the next few weeks, also mentioned a special lottery to raise money for the games. This plan al- rcsdy has been approved, he said.. The treasury board spokes- man said lotteries 'now come under provincial jurisdiction and do not affect the federal government. But, as far as he knew, there had been no change In the fed- eral stance against participat- ing in the financing of the games. Prime Minister Trudeau said following a cabinet meeting last week that position was the same as that taken when Mon- treal asked federal approval to apply for the Olympics. Because of the "great assist- ance" given for Expo 67, Mr. Trudeau said, the city had been told that no federal money would be available this time.

GAVSHON PEKING, (AP) Young people In Mao Tie-tog's China, one the poppy dream- land, of opium smokers, arc free of Uw scourge of drug- tildng ravaging some of the permissive societies of the "outside .world." But they are In the grip of another UN political opiate of Communist dogma that dominates their dally lives. "Workers of the world the banners exhort. The choirs sing: "Chairman Mao, you art the red sun In our hearts." With a kindly-looking Mao as the centrepiece, portraits of Lenin, Marx and SUUn beam down from most major vantage points In factory or farm.

(AP) shy and scruffy canine called Dawg by residents of this isolated Montana commu- nity is keeping a lonely vigil on Highway 771, apparently awaiting the return of her master. Dawg kept her distance from residents of the town un- til recently, but she now al- lows to approach and pet her. She rarely strays from her self-appointed post near the road. Austin Dillree, Powell County road foreman, moved a tar-papered dog house to the area to give Dawg some shelter for next winter. Dawg, who appears to be part golden Labrador re- triever, was Tint sighted last January northeast of this community betneeii Helena and Mlssoula. Residents say the dog had a head injury last winter and may have fallen from the back of a truck that passed through the area. Ranchers occasionally have tossed Dawg a dead calf, food she readily accepts. Residents say all efforts have failed to lead Dawg to better quarters, as the animal refuses to enter any cars or leave her post.

But on the evidence of re- cent years, when their mo- ment comes, they burst loose with even greater energy than anything known in the West, loosing their long.pent-up pas- sions against all the symbols of authority they can find. Such a moment came for them during the so-called Cul- tural Revolution from 1966 to revolution that lead- ers say will recur In cycles again and again.

U.S. and Russia meet opposition UNITED NATIONS (AP) The United States and the So- viet Union have one thing In common: Neither is getting all it wants in the 27th session of the General Assembly, now half way toward its Dec. 19 closing date. The United States wanted in early debate on the problem of preventing international terror- ism and hoped the assembly would call a conference early next year to work on a treaty for that purpose. It bumped into Arab and Afri- can opposition and had to wait to mid-session for the debate to get under way in the assem- bly's legal committee, and soundings of opinion in that committee now indicate that the nearest thing it can get to a conference is a UN body to study the problem. The Soviet Union wanted the assembly to tell the UN outer space committee to draft treaty governing direct satellite TV broadcasts from one coun- try into homo in other coun- tries. RAN INTO OPPOSITION It ran into a Western go-stow campaign and had to settle for a resolution asking the com- mittee to "elaborate principles" governing such broadcasts with a view to concluding an inter- actional agreement or agree- The Soviet Union, and 17 other Communist or non- aligned countries wanted the as- sembly to take up the Korean question and vote to get U.S. troops out of South Korea. The U.S., Britain and others rolled up a vote of 70 to 35, with 21 abstentions, to put the ques- tion off until next year to x not to disturb the two-Korea nego- tiations going on now. Big powers, keen to avoid up- setting the assembly's big Afri- can, Asian and Latin American majority often abstain ratter than vote against popular reso- lutions, even when they doubts about them. But in the assembly1! eco- nomic committee Friday, the U.S. was the only country that voted against an African pro- posal to locate a new UN envi- ronment secretariat, at great expense, in out-of-the-way Nair- obi, Kenya. The committee ap- proved the proposal 93 to I, with 3D abstentions, assuring it final adoption in the assembly later. CAST ITS VOTE In the assembly Thursday, the U.S. cast the only against what was left of the So- viet bid for direct TV regu- resolution to nuke start on the underlying prin- ciples. The U.S. explanation was that such regulation would threaten freedom of informa- tion. The resolution passed by a vote of 102-to 1, with seven ab- stentions. Earlier, only the UnlM States, Britain France, Portugal and South Africa cast negative votes when Uw assembly nave M-to-5 majority, with 23 absten- tions, to an anti-colonial resolu- tion banning aid to Portugal and South Africa.

Meanest, dirtiest parrot chomps his last cracker CARCROSS, Y.T. (CP) The World Famous Carcross parrot, reputedly the oldest, meanest, dirtiest bird north of the GOth parallel, has chomped his last cracker. Known most recently as want of a better Carcross parrot was found deceased, drum- sticks up, Monday morning on the floor of his cage In the parlor of the Caribou Hotel, where he survived ferocious northern blizzards, fire and the dregs of the -Klondike gold rush for more than half a cen- tury. No one was ever cure of his exact sex, for that residents of this tiny Yukon settlement believe he was the oldest resident of the Canadian North, perhaps 125. The parrot is believed to have come to the Yukon dur- ing the early stages of the Klondike gold rush of 1.598. In the years since then, he be- came a legend, receiving vis- itors and fun mall from across North America. Funeral arrangements have not been announced. His first recorded owner was a Captain Alexander who operated a mine near here during the First World War. He and his wife left Polly at the Caribou Hotel here in 1918 when they left for a trip to Vancouver. Their ship, the CPU's Prin- cess Sophia, foundered on rocks In the Lynn canal off Skagway, Alaaks, and the bird has remained at ho- tel ever since. POIJ.Y WANTS A SNOKT Polly used to have a reputa- tion as a hard drinker, aayi the hotel's current ewier, Dorothy Hopcott. "People would come in and give him a few belts. He'd get so drunk he'd fall off his perch and lie on the bottom of his cage with his feet stuck up in the air." But somewhere in che- querel life in the North, Polly swore off booze. One of the hotel's owners, according to local residents, taught him several verses of Onward Christian Soldiers and even- tually eliminated his racy lan- guage and repertoire of salty' sea shanties. And he apparently associ- ated his former days of drunkeness with adults. When someone would ask him what everyone asks a "Polly want a back come his stock reply: "Go to hell." But with children, he was the model of politeness. Mrs. Hopcott said he would hold long conversations with tod-, dlers, most of them In- comprehensible. "He got down in a corner of his cage and mumbled to himself. A lot of the time we couldn't understand him. He picked up a lot of foreign words and strange accents over the years."
