Maritime political union urged OIAKLOTTETOWN (CP) Full political union of the Marl- time provinces is recommended in the report of the Maritime union study to the premiers of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. The report, released today, represents two years, of work by a study group hsaded by Dr. John J. Deutsch, principal of Queen's University, Kingston, Ont. The study was authorized by the three provincial govern- ments to investigate possibili- ties for increased co-operaton between them.

The machinery includes a coun- cil of Maritime premiers, a Maritime provinces commission of experts and a joint legislative assembly. The report recommends that such tricky subjects as the capi- tal of the new province, its name, the design of its flag and guaje be left until later. How- ever, it suggests that provincial government departments could bn split among the three present capitals of Halifax, Fredericton and Charlottetown. The legisla- ture, on the other hand, might meet in some other city. Newfoundland, which was not included in the study, lias been mildly interested as the fourth member of the Atlantic prov- inces community. Premier Jo- seph Smallwood has frequently expressed interest in possible union of his province with Prince Edward Island. Other members of the study group were Fred R. Brummie, former economic adviser to the Robichaud Liberal government in New Brunswick and now sec- retary to the Nova Scotia cabi- net, and secretary Frederic J. Arsenault, former executive secretary of the National Soci- ety of Acadians snd now an as- sistant to Conservative premier Richard Hatfield of New Bruns- wick.

Denies prisoners beaten in cells MONTREAL (CP) Maurice St. Pierre, director general o! Quebec Provincial Police, said today he has no "knowledge'of prisoners having been beaten in their cells. Holland Parenteau, a member of a three-man committee desig- nated to investigate treatment of persons detained under the War Measures Act, said Thurs- day about 10 persons reported they "had been slapped on the face, had their hair pulled and that sort o tilling." The investigating committee included Jacques Hebert, a Montreal publisher, and Paul Tellier, a Dominican priest. It interviewed 120 of the more than 450 persons arrested under the act. Many of those arested were almost immediately released. But 49 persons were still beiag held today. Justice Minister Jerome Cho- quette gave his approval to the investigation by the Civil Liber- ties Union committee, and Mr. St. Pierre said it was under- stood the committee "should have all the facilities to inter- view the prisoners. "We have nothing to he said. Mr. Hebert today confirmed that "the name of the same po- liceman was mentioned is sev- eral cases by persons who told the investigating committee they had been beaten. He said three members of police committee, including himself, had seen each prisoner and had not seen, traces of blows. But the complaints were mostly of slaps and that kind o! thing.

Creation of machinery t devise and carry out common regional policies and negotiate Uie agreements needed for measures are taken OTTAWA (CP> The jov- crnment won approval yester- day for a move to prevent a flood of low-cost imported shirts onto the Christmas shop- ping market. Trade Minister Jean-Lac Pe- pin told the Commons the shirts have been gathering in customs and excise warehouses since June 2 when the govern- ment imposed a surtax on the imports to protect Canadian shirtmakers. Many of the im- ports had been in transit when the protective measure was or- dered. Since then, he said, import- ers have been holding back in anticipation of the Nov. 29 ex- piry date of the surtax. To pre- vent a release of the shirts that would disrupt the market at this time he asked for a one- year extension of the special duty. APPROVED BY SENATE The Senate also approved the extension. The surtax was adopted June 2 in an effort to hold shirt im- ports to the same level as in 1969, about 1.2 million dnien. Mr. Pepin told the Commons that some countries, such Japan, had agreed to a volun- tary restraint on exports to Canada but new producers had invaded the market and were pushing up imports by close to 15 per cent. The result was farther pres- sure on the Canadian industry which has been in decline since 1966.

Mideast ceasefire plan outlined By THE ASSOCIATES PRESS Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Dayan has outlined pub- licly a new plan for a Middle East ceasefire, and Western sources in London have re- ported moves to get peace talks going again before the end of the year. He said in a state tele- vision interview in Tel Aviv Thursday that he favored thin- nlng out forces on each side of five Suez canal to create a more relaxed atmosphere for negotia- tions. He gave no details, saying these would have to be negoti- ated with the Egyptians. Dayan stressed that his pro- posal does not call for with- some of Ms critics for "a new cease- fire agreement." Talks under-UN peace envoy Gunnar Jarring have been dor- mant since September. The cur- rent ceasefire expires in Febru- ary. High Western sources in Lon- don reported that secret talks are under way to revive the Jarring mission by around Christmas. They said the United States and Israel are confer- ring, with the British and French being kept informed of what is going on. Mahmoud Eiad, Egypt's vice- premier for foreign affairs, charged today that Israel is playing for time "to freeze the situation and consolidate its oc- cupation (of Arab territory) as an accomplished fact." "Egypt will not accept an- other renewal of the ceasefire unless she is certain that Is- rael's contacts with Jarring are proceeding in Riad commented in an interview with the newspaper Al Akbar.
