Commons tackles privacy rights i under new bill OTTAWA Debate on foreign invasion of the economy was expected to be shunted aside by the Com- mons today while MPs tackled the ticklish issue of invasion of privacy. The economic invasion is the subject of a government now nearing final that would set up a screening program for investment. The invasion of privacy bill is the controversial wiretapp- ing legislation that would im- pose restrictions on police use of electronic eavesdropping devices. This bill faces a series of amendments proposed by Jus- tice Minister Otto Lang in an attempt to mollify provincial attorneys-general and police. They object to the possibility that indirect evidence obtain- ed by illegal wiretap would not be admissable as evidence in court. Debate on the report and third-reading stages on this bill is expected to be lengthy. But it may be interrupted early next week so the House can wind up the foreign -investment bill and pass it on for Senate approval. Party spokesmen indicated Wednesday night that it could Premier hopes to woo Levesque VICTORIA Premier Dave Barrett told the British Columbia legislature in September that separatism is as a means of solving Quebec's economic and now he's trying to convince Quebec's leading separatist He said his flight to Quebec today to see Rene Parti Quebecois was an attempt to win him over to the New Democratic Party. He hoped to' persuade the separatist leader to drop his plan for taking Quebec out of Canada if the PQ forms a government there and to join with the NDP build a socialist Canada within Prime Minister Trudeau has chided Mr. Barrett for his na- ivete in believing he can per- suade Mr Levesque out of separatism. The premier himself seem- ed to moderate his optimism lately. Asked what kind of positive results people can ex- pect from the he ask- ed a kind of concrete results can you ex- pect out of an initial meeting between He said's he's making the trip a positive effort for the country's and still hopes something good will come of it. Mr Barrett says the 30 per cent of Quebec voters who last month cast ballots for the PQ were voting for Mr Leves- que's left-wing social reform not his separatist aims. He announced the odyssey td Quebec two weeks ago at the NDP's provincial conven- tion in Vancouver Some cynics said the announcement was intended to divert the headlines from a wide split at the convention over new B.C. labor legislation He told convention delegates that the only difference between the NDP and the PQ is language. never stopped people from making love. Let's make love The premier has made pro- nouncements on Quebec several times in recent and has been a good deal harsher than in his make speech to the par- ty faithful.

While the Skylab station cir- cled the globe four 270 miles Pogue and Gibson were to load telescope mount scientific experiments on the spacecraft hull and attempt to unjam a stuck antennnna Commander Gerald Carr was to monitor from inside the station. There had been some concern that the space trek might have to be delayed 24 hours if the mildew areas found Wednesday night had not dried by this morning.

Wednesday's debate was a repeat of statements made earlier on takeovers of Cana- dian companies by foreign interests. One of the main objections of the which also would restrict expansion of foreign companies is that it might have a serious impact on the Atlantic provinces and such remote regions as the North. This has been the main theme of criticism by a group of opposition MPs wholeel the outlying regions have to de- pend largely on foreign capital because Canadian investors are afraid to venture outside Ontario. Stan Schumacher implored the government to take a humanitarian stand because jobs will be at stake if foreign investment is curtailed. The government and so- cialist the NDP. were more concerned with the Ottawa Montreal Toronto triangle than with the rest of the country. It is he develop this country on Cana- dian money J Robert Gauthier tawa defended state economic saying it has been socially beneficial. He admitted the bill is not a complete answer to foreign control problems but would help protect high national interest of the Gordon Ritchie said the proposed controls will give the govern- ment power to interfere with business across the country. He called this undesirable because bureaucrats tended to think of the country in a 100- mile radius of Ottawa. David Orlikow Winnipeg said the bill is a beginning in the fight for domestic control of this country's economy. he skeptical the government really wants to use the legislation Ross Whicher introduced a slightly macabre tone when he suggested that people who did not have a chance to experience today's economy might be delighted if they were given a chance. the Canadian dead of the wars had the opportunity of coming back I suggest they'd be very happy He said free not has given Canada the world's best housing. average Canadian to- day never had it so good Print union to vote on contract NEW YORK The New York Newspaper Printing Pressmen's Union has reached a tentative ac- cord with publishers of The New York The Daily News and The Post. William president of the said the full man membership of the AFL- CIO affiliate will meet Dec. 2 to vote on the two-year contract. Kennedy is dead but doubts still live DALLAS After 10 lingering questions and contradictions still fascinate those devoted to the assassination. To critics of the Warren the government investigative force that ruled the assassination the deed of one these points remain 1. The third shot. Despite the official explanation that all three shots fired at the presidential car came from above and the famous film taken by Abraham Zapruder shows the president's head jolts violent- ly backward as the third shot This has led some to conclude that at least one other assassin was firing from in front of the slowly moving vehicle. 2. The well-preserved bullet. This copper-jacket bullet was found on a stretcher in Parkland Hospital after the president had been ruled dead. The Warren Commission decided it was the projectile that had entered Kennedy's neck from passed through his continued on to strike Texas Gov. John Connally in the ribs and wrist and then lodged hi his thigh. Critics reject the ex- citing tests that showed similar bullets un- derwent great distortion when fired through a cadaver of gelatin. Also cited is the se- cond autopsy report on which mentions metal traces in the trachea. Such metal the critics immediately renders the Warren -Report since the bullet found in the hospital lost only a tiny frac- tion of its mass and is in pristine condition. 3. The rifle. Critics say the 6.5 Mannlicher Carcano rifle identified by the Warren Com- mission as the sole weapon used to kill the president could not have done what it is sup- posed to have done. A letter from then FBI Director J. Edgar reproduced in the Warren Commission states that the firing pin showed signs of rust at the time authorities confiscated it on the day of the as- sassination Army experts later reported that shims were required to render the telescopic sight useful and that the effort required to operate the bolt was sufficient to pull it off target. Lee Harvey Owald's brother testified that Oswald was and a gun ex- pert told the Warren Commis- sion the telescopic sight was installed as if for a left-handed man. 4. the timing. Critics suggest that M seconds simply was not enough time for Oswald to remove all fingerprints from the hide it where it was found on the sixth floor of the Texas Schoolbook Depository and run down the stairs to the coffee room where he was seen immediately after the shooting. 5. The communications blackout. President Kennedy was shot at p.m. CST. Tapes of the Dallas police department's radio band shows at static interference blocked out all communication for approximately four meaning that the as- sassination was carried out while the Dallas police depart- ment was not able to reach its units in the field. The critics of the Warren Report also stress that the Morse code signal for dots and a can be heard just before the static In the doubters and the believe that a conspiracy was hatched that included various government the military and certain sections of the Dallas police department. They believe that crack gun- ners were at various locations to make sure the assassina- tion succeeded. Oswald's they was a diversionary one. They sug- gest that Oswald had been in- structed to nee into the Oak Cliff where officer T. D. Tippit had been assigned to kill him. This would have eliminated a search for other and the carefully prepared record of him to be a Communist and a defector to have con- vinced authorities that he had seen the assassin. Tippet was either by Oswald or and was not able to carry out his assignment. Jack also was given orders to kill Oswald in the city which he did. The more respected of the critics hasten to state they have reached no conclusions as to who actually committed the they primarily wish to prove that the official conclusions of the Warren Report are erroneous Story Page ;
