Ontario fell into line last week when John Clement, minister of consumer ar.d commercial relations, told the legislature normal Sabbath restrictions will be lifted Dec. .11 to permit taverns and other licensed establishments to remain open from G p.m. lo 1 a.m. Despite the new ruling, On- tario revellers will get to bed earlier than their counter- parts in some olher prov- inces. Time will be called at 2 a.m. in Alberta and Prince .Edward Island and Saskatche- wan palrons may celebrate until In Nova Scotia and British Columbia, drinking-up time is 3 a.m. In B.C., Alberta. Manitoba, Quebec and New Brunswick, taverns will be closed New Year's Eve, although licensed restaurants may serve drinks. A beer parlor, said B.C. At- torney-Genera! Alex Macdo- nald. is "not a proper place to spend New Year's Eve." On the other hand, a B.C. resident with stamina could celebrate longer than any- where else in the country. Dining rooms and dining lounges open at noon for a 15- hour working day. ATTRACTED MANY Expo, the six-montlis' world fair held in Montreal in 19G7, attracted visitors. i makes stereo worth listening to. Hill. New, spacious offices now are available in the Con- federation Building, 100 yards from the West Block. But opposition parties do not want any of their mem- bers to be moved off the Hill unless a similar proportion of cabinet ministers also move. Officials of the various par- ties rlso are reported con- cerned that MPs in Ihe Con- federation Building rarely attend the Commons sittings in tlic Cenlre Block. Some MPs have been de- terred from moving by the party line, others because they feel the Centre Block has more prestige, and others presumably because of simple inerlia. Accordingly, party repre- sentatives have agreed not to encourage MPs to more to the new offices, but not to stop any who wish to move. I'HOD BOSSES The secretaries, however, are beginning to take a hand, prodding their bosses to move. Among other attract- ions, the new offices have separate rooms for the mem- bers and their secretaries A group of secretaries lis- tened enviously at lunch Thursday while one described the simple means she used to get into the renovated build- ing. While her MP was out of town, she put his name on the list for a new office. When he came back, she simply sent him over lo look at the com- paratively luxurious quarters and the feat was accom- plished. So far, 10 of the 15 Social Credit MPs have signed up for the new offices. Other estimates arc that about five of 31 New Demo- crats. 10 of the 107 Con- servatives and at least 10 of the 100 Liberals are following suit. Model 4S3B9.

OTTAWA (CP) Artificial Christmas trees continue lo choke out export markets for the real thing despite belter trees and government efforts lo spruce up the tradc. Bill Ilickey of Ihe federal trade department's wood products branch, responsible for providing big tree buyers in the United States with lists of Canadian sellers, said yesterday that "natural Clirisl- mas trees leave- a lot lo be de- ued." Many aren't shaped right, needles drop off and some h gh rise aparlmenls ban Ihem because of fire worries. Besides, artificial trees arc looking more and more natu- ral all the time, are costing less and have reached the point where they even smell like evergreens. What it boils down lo is a sharp decline in export busi- ness for the 100 or so big plantations scattered across the country. EXPORTS DltOP Christmas tree exports, which account for between half and two-thirds of Can- ada's annual 10 million tree harvest, dropped to about 4.1 million Irees worth roughly S3.9 million last year. In 1970, about 5.3 million trees were alrout miluoh. The year before, exports stood at 0.4 million trees down from nearly seven mil- lion in ]963 and 1907. Two years ago, trade offi- cials were hopeful that ex- balsam and spruce from Quebec, Scotch pine from Ontario, balsam from the Maritimes, some spruce from the Prairies and Douglas fir from Alberta and grow if tree farmers grew better trees. Efforts were made lo en- courage tree farmers among the big exporters lo cultivate Iheir stands carefully, prun- ing for shape, weeding for tetter growth and spraying against insects. Despite the campaign, Mr. Mickey said, it was difficult to do much because of the frag- mented nature of much of the industry.

Firm to bargain on coal prices EDMONTON (CP) Mc- Intyre Porcupine Co. Ltd. offi- cials are preparing lo visit Ja- pan to re-negotiate i t s current Japanese coal contracts, says a company spokesman. The visit will be to bargain for increased ejnl prices on a 5-year agreement under which Mclntyre Porcupine's Grande Cache, mine operates. The company official said ba- sis [or the negotiation is the unsuitable price in "the light of present world prices" which Mclntyre Porcupine ob- tained for its 1967 coal. He dismissed reports that, a new contract also would be dis- cussed. Earlier this month, R. B. Ful- ton, president of Mclntyre-Por- cupine, reported a loss of million during the first nine months of the year for the Grande Cache mine. For (lie same period in 1971, the mine, key industry in a town of about 230 miles west of Ed- monton, showed an operating loss of million. Preliminary discussions on contract price revisions with the Japanese steel mills that buy coal from the Grande Cache mine were held in Tokyo in late September.
