But, as an advocate ot sensa- tionally unorthodox klens oa vir- tually every major issuo from non-white immigration to eco- nomic survirai, the backbench MP for Charles de Gaulle, whom lie admired, Powell is a politician apparently convinced that, Imwevcr long he may have to spend in the wilderness, lie vvili be one day called to power in some inevitable period of na- tional crisis. REMAINS CONFIDENT This Powell, 58, continues to exude self-confidence although he was excluded from cabinet membership following his explo- i statements in recent years Souihwcsl ,o Lave been seara his usual practice of spouting ideas certain to embarrass the more conventional characters at the national helm.

After the initial award six weeks ago, R question arose as to whether the policemen or the dry is for paying for certain pension benefits. "A decision was brought down ID our said Det. William Brink. "The city is to pay for ttie benefits in question." The contract was referred' to provincial Labor Minister Bay Reierson, who gave the origi- nal five-men arbitration board the power to make a ruling on the question. The board made its decision two weeks ago. With a 22.7-per-cent wage in- crease over a two-year period, city policemen now are among the highest paid in western Canada. Six-hundred members of the police association re- ceive an immediate .increase of more than 31 per cent, retro- active to Jan. 1, 1970, when the last contract expired.

FiNOCH POWLH Breaks Silence Minister Heath after the honey- moon period normally accorded to a new national leader. Heath was subjected to bitter attacks by Opposition Labor MPs over his cuts in social- service and other government expenditures, ordered as pajrt of an attempt to counter the infla- tion fever. Powell too joined to the ex- pressions of discontent but his complaint, in contrast to the Labor assault, was that the chops didn't go far enough. This dig at Heath, together with unflattering remarks about what Powell terms the "hum- bug" Commonwealth, proved the initial broadsides in a bar- rage of outbursts oo a variety of hot topics. In the last 10 days, the verhampton MP has '.-led his hostility to British against Ian f. and has urged d'' of key industri" '.ills country.
