The statement, published last Uniform LONDON (CP) For ttte first tune- since regular transat- lantic services began in the 19th century, no passenger liners will be making winter crossings this year between European and North American ports. The Daily Telegraph, report- ing an announcement in York by the Transatlantic Pas- senger Steamship Conference, says this applies to Mediterra- nean. British.

The first eastbound liner crossing in 1971 win be at the end of March bv Cunard's Queen Elizabeth 2 after her Caribbean cruise season. Until then, ship-lovers will have to make the crossing by freighters carrying 12 passengers. The service is being aban- doned for economic reasons and all transatlantic liners now spend the winter cruising. Last winter only four large liners maintained the from the Italian Line on the Mediter- ranean route and one each from North German Lloyd and the Greek Line. The Canadian Pacific liner Empress of Canada will make her last crossing of the season to Quebec City and Montreal Nov. 23 before embarking on a cruise season out of New York. The sailing had been threat- ened by strike action on the part of stewards who wanted a (SG2.50) cruise bonus.

Chief Justice Sir Myles Abbott also fined two radio stations and respectively for broadcasting the statement. Sir Myles sentenced Black Beret John Philip Perinchief, 25, a schoolteacher, to six months' imprisonment for mak- ing the statement. The chief jus- tice, however, added that the term could be reviewed if Per- inchief apologizes. Also fined was Gazette editor Gordon Robinson and the news directors of the two radio sta- tions. Robinson was fined and the news directors and each. In finding the newspaper, radio stations and Perinchief guilty of contempt of court, Sir Myles described the publication of the statement as a "disgrace- ful and scurrilous attack on a court of summary justice." He added the judgment should not be interpreted as a restric- tion on freedom of speech and opinion but "it is one tiling to hold extreme views and to ex- press them strongly, quite an- other to hurl vulgar abuse and to utter threats directed at those who administer justice in these islands." EDMONTON (CP) Babey of Edmonton, president of Unifarm, has announced he will not seek re-election at the organization's first annual con- vention Dec. 8-11. In a prepared statement, he said he would not run again because he felt "leaders should not stay in office too long." "Seven yeSrs is a long time; quite sufficient to implement my ideas. An organization's strength must be in a collec- tive, all-out effort by everyone rather than reliance on any in- dividual." Unifarm was formed 1 a s I year when the Farmers' Union of Alberta amalgamated with the Alberta Federation of Agri- culture. Mr. Babey had servec as president of the union since 1983 and was elected presiden of Unifarm when it was formed He would not say what his plans were for the future.

Friendship centres on borrowed time CALGARY (CP) Two of Alberta's sit native friendship centres are running short of funds and may have to close before spttag, say organization executives. Peter CressweH, executive director of the Napi Friend- ship Centre at Pincher Creek, said the centre will be forced to close next March unless more finances are found and the Lethbridge centre has only enough money to last to the end of the year. The main income for the cen- tres, also located in Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie and Peace River, is an annual grant from the federal and provincial governments. The grant, issued each July, has remained the same despite an increase in the number of centres to six from four in the last three years. "Our grants are really very inadequate for the amount of service we said Mr. Cresswell, About persons have been involved in the Pincher Creek program since the cen- tre opened 2% years ago. "In addition, we have done a lot of referral to other social agencies, counselling on family matters and have placed eight people in jobs during the lasi three months." The centres attempt to bridge differences between na tives and white communities by holding inter-racial func tions and by assisting anc counselling Indians moving into cities.
