J5 Air Canada says plane report false MONTREAL (CP; - An Air Canada spokesman said Wednesday a series of five charter flights to Cuba from Montreal and Toronto were cancelled in October because of the "political climate" in Quebec following two kidnappings by the Front de Liberation du Quebec. lie said an earlier published report thai, the flights had l>een cancelled because of a lack of planes for Caribbean service was "absolutely incorrect." The Crown-owned airline made the decision in consulta-I t'on with the Toronto-based | travel agency which had chaxt-j ered the flights. POLICE STATION GUARDED - A policeman carrying a shotgun patrols outside a Toronto police station. The guards were placed following information received from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police that a radical c>roup might attempt to fire-bomb a police station. Liberals to draft charter for 70s OTTAWA (CP).- When some 2,000 Liberals meet here this weekend to draft "the Liberal charter for the '70s," no one is expecting a radical shift in any of the party's basic policies, But what will emerge, predict party officials, is a clear consensus of rank-and-file thinking that can be used as a broad foundation for specific policies in the years ahead. When Prime Minister Tru-deau went to the Harrison Hot Springs, B.C., conference last year-that was the meeting that laid the groundwork for this forthcoming convention-he made it clear that specific policies could not be hammered firmly into plaee by any particular group of people. "Canadians would rightly reject as incredible any government or party or prime minister who claimed to know the answers to the large questions of public policy which we must face in the coming decade," he said. He is expected to reiterate U.S. hopes fade for peace talks UNITED NATIONS (AP) -The decision of Middle East peace mediator Gunnar V. Jarring to return to his regular post in Moscow dashed U.S. hopes the Arab-Israeli negotiations might resume in a few weeks. The American hopes were based mainly on recent statements by Israeii Premier Golda Meir ard Deff.nce Minister Moshe >ayan, Mrs. Meir told her parliament Monday that the U.S. and Israeli governments are looking for a new formula that will permit resumption of the indirect Israeli-Egyptian-Jordanian talks with Jarring as go-between. This indicated a retreat from I s r a e 1 's insistence that she could not return to the talks until Egypt pulled back the anti-aircraft missiles allegedly moved closer to the Suez canal since the ceasefire in August. Other reports from Tel Aviv said Israeli leaders feel that new U.S. planes and other weapons being supplied Israel offset the threat of the missiles. Dayan Nov. 7 said the Jarring talks were the only means of reaching a settlement and he was "very much in favor" of resuming them. A Reuter's news agency story from Jerusalem said Dayan suggested a new initiative to break the deadlock in private talks Tuesday with members of the governing Israeli Labor party. He said he favors resumption of the Jarring mission if "new physical arrangements" can be attained with the Egyptians. He did not elaborate, but there was speculation that he was floating the idea of a disen= gagement of forces along the Suez canal and eventual reopen= ing of the canal. Jarring, Sweden's ambassador to the Soviet Union, has been marking time at UN headquarters since Israel quit the talks Sept. 6. Along with the announcement that he was going back to Moscow, a spokesman said he would return to UN headquarters "within a matter of hours" if the situation required it. Council reaffirms need for senior citizens home this view when he speaks to the convention Friday night, before the delegates begin wading through some 300 resolutions that will eventually provide the framework for party policy. GEARED FOR DISCUSSION Because these resolutions are specifically designed to encourage discussion, and conflicting viewpoints, they do not give any indication of what may finally emerge in the form of a final resolution on any particular subject. Regardless of what emerges, the government will not be iron-bound to follow any policy to the letter. But in two years' time, the prime minister must return to the convention to report on the "considerations given, the decisions made and the reasoning therefore regarding resolutions passed at previous convention." When Mr. Trudeau speaks to the convention Friday night, it will be in this form, of giving an account of his stewardship. Party officials predict few problems for him, By VERN DECOUX Crowsnest Pass Bureau BLAIRMORE - Blairmore town council is studying plans for a large motel unit and also eight units of row housing. An enquiry regarding the motel indicated the development would contain 24 units and possibly a large restaurant, lounge and residence. Enquiries were made by a Cram-brook B.C. party. The row housing would comprise eight units and would be built by local operators. Both the motel and row housing units would be built on some 24 lots in the west end of Blairmore immediately west of the proposed Crowsnest Pass Community Swimming Pool site. With the housing shortage in town pensioners who require apartment homes are finding them difficult to obtain. As a result of the enquiries council passed a resolution reaffirming the need for a senior citizens home to be located in the Crowsnest Pass and recommended feasibility study be instituted by a properly authorized competent committee to evaluate this need. The resolution also indicates a recent survey revealed the Cowboys fined CALGARY (CP)-Three cowboys who refused lo ride their mounts in the finals of the Calgary Stampede saddle bronc event last July have been fined $100 each, the Canadian Rodeo Cowboys' Association announced Wednesday. Kenny McLean of Okanagan Falls, B.C., Marty Wood of Prosper, Tex., and Tom Bews of Longview, Alta., were handed the fines for conduct "detrimental to the rodeo." The cowboys at the time said the Ivorses were not worthy of a championship event, and refused to ride them, number of elderly citizens in the Crowsnest Pass is well above the provincial average. The survey also indicates many of these residents have indicated their unwillingness to enter the senior citizens home at Pincher Creek since they would be separated from relatives, friends and the communities they have lived in. Many of these citizens have indicated their willingness to enter a senior citizens home if it were located in the Crowsnest Pass. New police chief vows cleanup BELFAST (Reuter) - A new police chief took over in Northern Ireland yesterday and vowed his first aim would be to get rid of gunmen and bombers he said are terrorizing the country. Graham Shillington, the new chief of the Royal Ulster Constabulary, said his second aim is to deal with street demonstrations, riots, and attacks on police and troops by rioters using Molotov cocktails, stones and bottles. j 63-year-old man One will never do - knit a wardrobe of terrific tops!

Roger Walter Semaka, 63, pleaded guilty m supreme court to killing his wife, Irene, 68, on July lfi at their home. A police constable who found the body of Mrs. Semaka identified a note, signed by Roger Semaka, that had been left; on the kitchen table. It read- "I Roger Semaka, have lived with this woman for approximately 38 years and have got tired of her cheating. 1 have not much longer to live and 1 don't why ehe should,"1 Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Jolee Peters, age 15, of Hawarden, Iowa, for her question: Is light really waves or particles? Water is made of molecule particles and the watery ocean heaves in tossing waves. It is possible, then, for something to have both. However, the waves and particles of light are so very different from those of the tossing sea that we can hardly compare them. For one thing, water is a liquid substance of the earth. Light is invisible energy, whipping across the universe at speeds of about 186,000 miles per second. It is a phenomenon, a happening, that baffled the best brains of mankind for many generations. The double wave-particle nature of light was finally solved in modern times. * * a The study of the nature of light is called the science of optics. It really began when lenses were mvented in the 1500s. Researchers saw that light was a cosmic phenomenon, and not beams shed forth ; from human eyes. In the 1600s, | Isaac Newton investigated a i beam of white light passing | through a glass prism and saw l it separate into the rainbow j spectrum. He concluded that white light is made of corpuscles, infinitesimal particles that travel in straight lines. The glass prism bent or refracted white light and angled its particles into separate streams. In the 1660s, Dutch scientist Christain Huygens also studied optics - but from a different viewjxiint. He observed that, the edges of a shadow are dimmer, as though Lhc light swerves around somewhat like waves of water around a stone. He concluded that the straight rays of light travel in waves. The wave theory and the corpuscular theory were hotly disputed for more than a century. Around 1800, new experiments demonstrated that light does indeed bend, or diffract, around edges. Other experiments added support to the wave theory of light. We now know that the waves vibrate at right angles to the straight lines of a traveling light beam. In the 1860s, James Clerk Maxwell suggested that the phenomenon of light is electromagnetic energy. He placed a band of it? wave lengths on his fabulous spectrum of electromagnetic energies. This was the century of the wave theory and Newton's corpuscular theory was neglected. Then in 1900, Max Planck astonished the world of optics with his theory that light travels in infinitesimal packages of energy called quanta. A quantum's energy is related to wavelength - to the length and number of vibrations per second. The quanta vibrate in transverse waves, at right angles to the straight lines in which a beam of light travels. At last scientists knew that Newton's coi-puscular theory and Huygen's wave theory were both correct. Light is quantum units of energy vibrating in waves. * * it* Tlie phenomenon of light is entirely energy. In 1860, James Maxwell identified it as a complex blend of electric and magnetic energies. We call it visible light because our eyes can see the images carried by its assorted wavelengths. On Maxwell's complete electromagnetic spectrum, the wavelengths of light occupy a narrow band. Its short blue wavelengtlis measure about 60,000 to an inch and vibrate about 700 million times per second. The quanta of red rays vibrate in longer waves.
