Left la right are Prince Charles, the prince of Wales; Prince Ed- ward, the Queen, 46; Prince Philip, 51; Prince Andrew and Piincess Anne. 25 years ago today Elizabeth married Philip LONDON (AP) Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip were deluged with congralulalory mail today, their 25Lh wedding anniversary, then prayed at a Weil- minster Abbey thanksgiving ceremony that brought Lon- don its biggest display of rcyal pageantry in almost 20 years. Church bells pealed, [lags unfurled across Britain and crowds flocked to central London, under partly cloudy skies, as the royal couple marked a day of non-stop celebrations from breakfast to a midnight parly. London had not seen such a parly show since the Queen's coronation in 1953. The Queen and her husband began the day by opening gifts from their family. Buckingham Palace said thousands of congratula- tory cables nnd Ictlers from throughout the world had flooded into the royal household by breakfast lime. Then the 46-year old monarch was joined by her husband and youngest sou, eight-year-old Prince Ed- ward, in a limousine for a .short drive lo Westminslcr Abbey where she was married in 1947. A fanfare of trumpcls greeted the royal party at (he abbey. Prince Philip. 51, strode beside his wife down Ihc aisle of the abbey. They were followed by heir to Lhc throne, Prince Charles, who sported a giant red carnation in the lapel of his morning suit. Princess Anne, in a bright fuschia-printed coat and dress and wearing a large pill-box hat of plain silk with a cascade of feathers, walked beside her brother. She seemed unmindful of the headlines in the Lon- don newspapers, announcing that she had broken an unwritten royal taboo, pone fox hunting, and upset ani- mal protection societies. The Queen's younger clu'ldrcn, also in lounge suits, followed Anne and Charles. At the 45-minulc service were 100 couples married on Ihc same day in 1047. Fourteen members of Eu- rope's royal families were also there. The story leaked out that 22-year-old Princess Aime went fox hunting eight days ago in Yorkshire. The League Against Cruel Sports said she was ''selling a deplorable example.1' The Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelly lo Animals, of which bolh Ihc Queen and Queen Mother Elizabclh arc palrnn.s, said it was "implacably opposed to fox hunting; it doesn't matter if Prmccss Anne or anyone else lakes part." The silver jubilee was planned as a mixture of pomp, pageantry and informality, willi the royal couple taking Ihcir first walkabout among the ordinary people of Brilain. Prince Charles and Princess Anne invited several hundred friends of the Royal Family to Buckingham Palace lonight for a dinner dance in honor of their parents. Modification sought of peace agreement From AP-REUTER PARIS (CP) Henry Kissin- ger resumed his secret peace negotiations wilh Hanoi's Le Due Tho in Paris today amid indications that their govern- ments ere determined to sesk a quick settlement. The U.S. presidential envoy who flew Sunday night ssid on arrival thai if the North Vietnamese negotiators showed the same spirit of under- standing and flexibility which resulted in last month's nine- point draft ag-esment, "a rapid settlement of the war is prob- able." U.S. officials hope that North Vietnam will agree to modify Vietnam peace lerms to make them more acceptable lo the Saigon governmenl which so far has hinlcd lhal it would not he bound by any agreement signed without its consent. Tiro's negotiating learn, how- ever, is expected to insist thai there be no major modification of the nine-poinl agreement an- nounced by Hanoi on Oct. 2G.

Kissinger will insist that Ihe agreement make clear lhal Lhs administrative body, of which the Viet Cong will form part, cannot be viewed as a coalition government pending elections, well-informed sources said. Under the lerms of the ten fa- live peace agreemenl reached last month, North Vietnamese forces would remain in South Vietnam to preserve the terri- tory now controlled by the Viet Cong. But Saigon wants Ihese troops to be withdrawn gradually once a ceasefire takes effect. Kissinger also will seek North Vietnam's agreement that an international peace force be sent lo Eouth Vietnam once a ceasefire begins. Canada, Hun- gary, Poland and Indonesia have been app-oached to send U'oops to the proposed peace- keeping force. Provincial overnments divided at tri-level meet By BOB DOUGLAS TORONTO (CP) A divided provincial delegation is re- ported to be facing united fed- eral and municipal groups at Lhe first Iri-level conference on urban affairs which opened here today. Sources said Sunday the pro- vincial position, prepared by an Ontario government team, has not obtained unanimous support from all provicial govern- ments. Manitoba is not endorsing the provincial stand, these sources said, ft is also understood that the Atlantic provinces are con- sidering a separale brief on some aspects of the provincial position. While details of Ihe dis- agreement were not revealed, it was hinted that the brief pre- pared by Ontario lakes a nega- tive stand on continuing con- sultation among the three levels of govermenl. Main purpose of Ihe confer- ence is lo establish machinery for permanent consultation on urban mailers between federal, provincial and municipal gov- crments. The very fact that the three levels of government ere meet- ing logslher at all is regarded as a major advance by confer- ence organizers. Mayor D. G. Newman of Whilby, Ont., chairman of the municipal delegation, said Sun- day: "We really lead His world at lliis point." FCP oilier story Page 19. IRA denounces arrest of chief as collusion I'rom DUBLIN (CP) The Provi- sional wing of Ihc Irish Republi- can Army is calling for "a wave of in Ihc United Stales, Brilain and Ireland against the nrrcst by the Irish government of Ihc Proves' chief of staff, Sean MacStiofain. The Provisionals' political arm, Sinn Fein, said MacSlio- faiu's arrest in Dublin Sunday was an "net of collaboration" with the British Army, "calcu- latcd to give aid and comfort to the forces of British imperial- ism in Ireland." MacStiofain is believed lo be Ihe mastermind of the IRA's campaign of violence in North- ern Ireland, which is aimed at uniting the province wilh Ihe Irish republic. The Dublin government hns been reluctant to crack down on IRA leaders because of Lheir grass-rools support in the re- public. But in rcrcnt months Ihc government pushed a Special Powers Act through Parliament to bring IRA men lo trial with- out jury and several other ter- rorist leaders have been ar- rest ed. British officials in Northern Irclnr.d welcomed the arrest. But one source said the republic hns arrested IRA leaders in the past and Lhcu released Ihem aflcr a short slay in jail. MacSliofain was r.rrested shortly after recording an inter- view broadcast later by the stale radio network. He said Ihe Provisional' guerrilla cam- paign in Northern Ireland would continue, and he called for an all-Ireland conference on tho Ulster crisis.

FOR COALITION CLEAR MAJORITY Brandt coasts to easy victory NEW YORK TIMES SERVICE BONN West Germans gave Chancellor Willy Brandt's coalition government a resounding vote of confidence Sunday with 54 per cent of the total in federal elections. The chancellor's own Social Democatic party won 46 per cent, topping the con- servative opposition for the first time since the federal republic was founded in 1949. The Free Democrats, Brandt's partners in the governing coalition and repres- ented in it by Foreign Minister Walter Scheel, won eight per cent. Tli3 two parties formed their coalition in 1969, with a narrow majority that was erased by defections last spring. But BrEnat and Echeel swore to stick together and were rewarded yesterday in what was, by German stand- E5' THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 7ay for treaties ards, a landslide. The coalition leaders appear to have a comfortable majority, with at least 272 seats in the 496-member lower house of par- liament. The opposition Conser- vatives will have 224 deputies. Brandt's opponent, R a i n e r Barzel, who represents the Christian Democratic Un- ion and its Bavarian affiliate, the Christian social union, con- ceded the election about an hour after polls closed. Mr. Brandt went before re- porters and television cameras to say thai. "It is not a mo- ment cf triumph, hut a moving moment cf satisfaction and he said. Scheel, said that "the voters kept a clear head against an unheard-of flood of propagan- da" from the opposition. It was in large measure a personal victory for the chan- cellor, who will be 59 years old nest month. His campaign, in which he covered miles by train and miles by plane, was unparalleled in in- tensity here and, in the of his campaign managers, he won it on the strength of his "credibility." "He was what he said, the 'chancellor of said Jochen Schulz, Brandt's parly spokesman. "That and his appeal to the electorate to be a people capable of the qual- ity cf mercy won it for him." The sweep by the Social Democrats covered metropoli- tan and rural areas, but was concentrated more in Protes- tant north Germany lhan in the Catholic regions of the south. The Social Democrats car- ried the SAAR and Lower Sax- ony for the first time and they got their best ever vole in Lhe Rhineland-Palatinate with over 47 per cent, beating the Con- servatives for the first time there, too. The only areas where the Conservatives held tlieir ground were in Bavaria and Baden- Wurttemberg. The Christian So- cial Unirn of Franz Josef Strauss, the Bavarian sister party of Barzel's Christian Democratic Union, polling 55 per cent, bettered its 19S9 show- ing by almost one parcentage point. In Baden Wurttembsrg the Conservatives gol almosl 50 per cenl. Strauss. 57, called the eleclion "extraordinarily dubious." and although he gave assurances that there would no imme- diate consequences in the lead- ership of (he Conservative camp, it appeared that his Ba- varian party w o n 1 d have more to say in the future of the Christian Union alliance. Laic last week Strauss had Indicated that in the event of a loss there would be "grave dis- cussions" about who would run the Conservatives from now on, hinting that he might himself he the chancellor in 197G The election confirmed the demise of Lhc extreme right- wing National Democratic parly, once r o g H rdcd as the omen of a Fascist revival.

Governments in Eastern and Western Europe joined in praise Sunday night of Chancellor Willy Brandt's decisive victory in the West German elections. East Germany hailed Brandt's re-election as a con- firmation of his Ostpolitik, or policy of reducing tensions with the Soviet bloc. The East German news agency ADN said: "The way now is cleared for the signing and ratification of the treaty on basic relations between West Germany and East Germany." Moscow radio reported the election results without com- ment, but commentaries in the state-controlled press prior to the vote had made no secret of the Kremlin's preference for Brandt over his opponent, Rainer Barzel. HEATH IS HAPPY Prime Minister Edward Heath of Britain was reported gratified by what he considered an indication of stability in West German politics at a time when Britain is aboul to enter Ihe European Common Market. He also was reported delighted at the victory of Brandt as a personal friend. Foreign Minister Knud B. An- dersen of Denmark received the election news with "great pleas- ure" and said it gave him "a feeling of security" to know that Brandt will continue at the helm as West Germany pro- ceeded with its policy of norma- lizing relations with Eastern Europe. In a radio statement, Ander- sen also indicated that Den- mark might recognize East Germany before the end of the year. There was no immediate gov- ernment reaction from Paris, bul French officials had made clear they were looking forward to a Brandt victory. In Washington, United States officials declined comment. OTTAWA (CP) Canadian government officials were pleased today with Lhe re-elec- tion of West German Chancellor Willy Brandt. Sources recalled that Ex- ternal Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp has said pubb'cly several times that Canada supports Mr. Brandt's attempts at detente In Europe. They said Mr. Brandt's re- election wilh a comfortable ma- jority is evidence that the West German people support the chancellor's policies. Civil servants join labor group CALGARY (CP) -The Civil Service Association of Alberta has decided lo join the Cana- dian Labor Congress, a move hailed by a labor spokesman as Ihe first step in a nation- wide movement. About 200 delegates at Ihe as- sociation's annual convention here told their executive "lo take Ihe necessary steps lo af- filiate" with the CLC, after de- feating a motion to hold a mem- bership referendum on the question. CLC organizer Gordon .Mc- Caffrey of Calgary called the decision "an historic move- ment" that would lead to the eventual inclusion of all provin- cial civil service associations in Canada. He added thai Sas- katchewan. Nova Scotia and Newfoundland civil servants vill soon follow Alberta's lead. The 1970s will be "the dec- ade of the public employees.'' he said, adding the congress has committed million to organ- izing "while collar workers" in the next three years. Alberta civil servants now have no machinery that could lead Lo strike action. They and the provincial government have Ihe option of binding arbitra- tion should contract negotia- tions be deadlocked. The association's biggest task now is to convince vank and file members to support the CLC affiliation. One local branch went on record Satur- day as opposing the move. The convention also passed a resolution that would give em- ployees at the lower end of Ihe pay scale Lhe largest salary in- creases, if Lhe government agrees. PRISONERS ARE FORCED TO END JAIL SIT-IN KINGSTON. Ont. (CD A five-day, sit-down protest by prisoners at Joyceville in- sliiution ended today when guards forced Ihe men back into their cells. C. W. Chilly said the decision was taken to end Ihe protest because security facil- ities were being tampered with by some prisoners. lie said there was no resist- ance by prisoners who were back in their cells by a.m. The sil-down began last Tues- day night when prisoners re- fused lo return lo their colls or resume work duties. They re- mained in large, scaled off range areas. The demonstration was to protest the cancellation of a six- monlh experiment to permit vigils among prisoners. Warden Chilly said some pris- oners were Inmpcring wilh the rnngi' doors which placed the K.ifcly of the public, non-in- volved priconcrs mid Ihc in- .sliliitinn in jeopardy. In a news release Sunday, prisoners said the caucclMoi of the open-door policy "greatly retards an inmate's opportunity for rehabilitation." Prison officials said the ex- periment "generally lessened security" al the instilution, al- though no specific regulations were violated. "This dturf It's ctlttd Ptaetl'
