Saturday night, Mr. Bennett told the convention lie is sure outlines OTTAWA (CP) Former prime minister Lester B. Pear- son says he does not think that the government's proclamation of UK War Measures Act or the kidnappings that prompted it will have a long-range effect on the political separatist move' uient in Quebec. Mr. Pearson was taped Fri- day for the CTV interview pro- gram Question Period Sunday. Asked whether he agreed with the assessment of External Af- fairs Minister Mitchell Sharp, made shortly after the abduc- tion of British envoy James Hichard Cross, that the terrorist gesture could end separatism in Quebec, Mr. Pearson saio: "I think we'd be making a mistake if we thought that this kind of action (either the kid- napping or the subsequent pro- clamation) is going to have a long-range effect... as long as there is a political move in Quebec towards political At gTeaent such a move is being made by the separatist Parti Quebecois, which has seven seats in UK Quebec Na- tional Assembly. Mr. Pearson said he would Jsot comment on whether Quebec should be allowed to separate from the rest of Can- ada if a majority of Quebecers voted in favor of separation. Asked whether advocacy of "the end of the country and its organization as we know it" should not be declared treason, Mr. Pearson said: HALE OPTICAL COMPANY ITO. Gary Marfift Dispensing Optician 307 St. S. 327-7132 "No, not any more than Nor- way and Sweden breaking apart In 1904 was. They were a united state at that time and they sep- arated." He said that, as prime minis- ter, he had never mads a state- ment that Canada was indivisi- ble. "I didn't see any necessity for calling attention to the fact that we might or might not have to use violence to stop a constitu- tional political movement. I think it would have be.en a mis- take to have made that kind of statement during a quiet revolu- tion." Trudeau visits York NEW YORK (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau flew into New York Sunday night for what ap- parently was intended to be a private visit, Trudeau arrived at Kennedy Airport in a small plane but a Canadian official told reporters on hand the prime 'minister did not wish to make a statement. It was not immediately known how long Trudeau planned to remain here or where he was staying. A spokesman at Uie Canadian consulate said the consulate had not been advised of Trudeau's arrival. ..In Ottawa the prime minis- ter's office says Mr. Trudeau will be back in Ottawa by noon today. He was not in the Com- mons Friday. R.C. and Albcrla would be a part of Canada because "without us, Canada would col- lapse." Premier Harry Strom of Al- liedn, who also addressed dele- Saturday night, said thai if Alberta was looking for n union, it would look west. In the past, Mr. Strom has rejected the concept of one large prairie province. Earlier, Ilie name of Que- becs Real Caouette, leader of the Ralliement Des Creditistes, and cries of "go federal' echoed through the convention hall and near-pandemonium erupted. "Its time to put our actions where our mouths yelled one delegate when resolution 78 came up asking that the B C Social Credit League campaign to get as many members as possible for the federal Social Credit. The split between Mr. Cao- uette and the Social Credit Par- ty came in September, 1963, when Robert Thompson of Hed Deer, Alta., then leader of the federal Social Credit Party, ac- cused Mr. Caouette of making irresponsible statements and told him to "get out." Mr. Caouelte said he would get out but, he would take all his Quebec supporters with him. This is what he did, and he formed the Ralliement Des Creditistes. During the height of the con- vention discussion Saturday, one delegate suddenly grabbed the microphone and said: "AH I know is that Thompson left the party to join another one while Caouette is carryini our voice and message bad east, so what tile hell are we fighting about." After deafening cheers, table- thumping and some more ver- bal explosions, resolution 78 fi- nally was carried. A resolution that caused great deal of discussion and was eventually defeated re- volved around a proposal that provincial homo acquisition grants and loans be advanced on a needs basis and that the grants be increased to from The resolution also asked that the grants be made available only to B.C. citizens earning less than a year. Delegates also called on the provincial government to im- pose an "absentee landlord tax" on all foreign land own- ers who do not reside in the province for six months a year.

ROME (AP) Pope Paul firmly restated today the Roman Catholic Church's abso- lute ban on artificial contracep- tion. But he called for social prog- ress which he said could lead to "rational control of birth" by couples exercising free choice. In a hard-hitting speech to the UN Food and Agriculture Or- ganization here, the Pope also deplored racism, "exaggerated nationalism the lust for unlimited power, the unbridled thirst for domination. He warned against an "eco- logical catastrophe, called on rich countries to divert spending from arms to aiding the poor, and issued another call for Communist China's entry in the United Nations. He said he was aware of opin- ions in international organiza- tions, including FAO, "which extol planned birth control which, it is believed, will bring a radical solution to the prob- lems ot developing countries." Tne .Pope's call lor technologi- cal and social progress ap- peared to reaffirm his urging to scientists in his birth control en- cyclical, Humanse Vitae, to de- velop a birth control method of which the church could approve. The Pope spoke on the occa- sion of the 25th anniversary of the Rome-based FAO, the UN's largest specialized agency. Quoting his 1967 encyclical Populonun Progressio, the Roman Catholic pontiff told a conference of the ON Food and Agriculture Organization that when so many people 'are hun- gry, destitute and "steeped in ignorance all expenditures prompted by motives of national or personal ostentation, every debilitating armaments race becomes an intolerable scan- dal." "Exaggerated nationalism, racism engendering hale, the lust for unlimited power, the un- bridled thirst for domination: who will convince men tc emerge from such aberrations? "Who will be the first ti break the circle of the arma menls race, ever more ruinou: and vain? Will man, who has learned how to harness the atom and conquer space, finally succeed in conquering his set FIRM ON BIRTH CONTROL. The Pope once more ruled out present artificial methods of birth control as a means of solv- ing population problems. But he also repeated his call in his last birth control encyclical, Hu- manae Vitae, for scientists to develop new birth control meth- ods his church coidd approve.

The former premier added that Mr. Bourassa made him aware of certain facts in the kidnappings of former Quebec Labor Minister Pierre Laporte, subsequently murdered by his captors, and British diplomat James Cross, "and these seemed to me that the govern- ments stand was correct."

Raps Turner 'outbursts' against NDP LINDSAY, Ont. (CP) A member of the New Democratic Party's federal council said Sunday that Justice Minister John Turner's "hysterical out- bursts" against the NDP show that criticism of Prime Minister Tnideau "is unpopular and even dangerous." Dr. Desmond Morton of the University of Toronto told the annual meeting of the NDP's Victoria-Haliburton constituency association: "Our whole political mission of democratic social change cannot possibly survive in the atmosphere of terrorism which a gangster minority has creati in Quebec, and which the gime oE repression, the Wi Measures Act and its hopefully- temporary successor, will cre- ate. Dr. Morton said he had no doubt of Prime Minister Tin- desu's sincerity in trying to pre- serve Canadian unity in the face of terrorist acts by the Front de Liberation du Quebec. ('I hope profoundly that his methods will work because if they do not we shall all be in a very thick soup indeed. I know that to criticize his tactics is unpopular and even dangerous hysterical outbursts of the minister of justice against the NDP have made that dra- matically clear. The U of T professor accused Mr. Trudeau of refusing to level with the Canadian people on why hs thought implementation of the War Measures Act Oct. 10 was necessary. TORONTO (CP) Resump- ion of contract talks here today leld the spotlight in Uie General Motors strike, with ratification votes on a new master agree- ment under way in the U.S. and oca I issues settled at all Cana- dian plants except one. Today's scheduled master talks between General Motors Canada Ltd. and its Cana- dian employees represented by .he United Auto Workers Union followed settlement of local is- sues Sunday at GM's St. Cathar- ines, Ont., stamping plant and foundry. The settlement left only one GM plant, at Ste. Therese, Que., where local that are not covered in the master agreement remained unre- solved. Union spokesman Jerry Hart- ford said the GM employees are "looking forward to a new offer in the near future" from the company, but GM Canada "one offer behind the Stote we haven't had a third offer yet." Last week, the UAW's Amert can GM negotiating council in Detroit accepted terms ot a new three-year contract that would give employees south of the bor- der a 11.06 hourly pay raise. SEES GOOD EFFECT The tentative settlement, yet to be ratified by UAW member- ships in the U.S., "should have a good effect said Mr. Hartford. However, another DAW leader warned during the week- end that Canadian contract ne- gotiations still have a long way to go. Abe Taylor, president of the 0 s h a w a local-biggest UAW chapter in 11 any- one thinks the strike is over, "they bad better reconsider." "As far as I'm concerned there will be no settlement in Canada unless we reach wago parity with the said Mr. Taylor. "We're very hopeful we'll reach a settlement before Friday tat management holds the key to that question." Negotiations at the master level centred on wags parity with U.S. workers on cnst-of-liv- ing benefits, health and pension benefits and company payments into a fund for laid-off workers. Mr, Taylor said the UAW is prepared to accept the hourly raise negotiated for U.S. workers, but added: Teen-ager injured in car crash MAGHATH (HNS) Miss Marsha Gibb, 16, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Gibb of Mag- rath, today was said by Mag- rath hospital officials to be in satisfactory condition following a two-car collision early Sun- day morning.
