"It's just that the time is he said. "Talks take place when it is most propi- tious."

CALGARY (CP) About students were given an unscheduled holiday today as G13 teachers went on strike in the Bow Valley district. The teachers, representing seven districts in the Bow Val- ley School Authorities Associa- tion, were mainly seeking bet- ter salary schedules and em- ployer contributions to the Al- berta Health Care Plan. Tlie strike involved schools in the counties of Wbeatland and Mountain View, tlie school di- visions of Three Hills and Drumheller Valley, and local boards in Banff, Canmore and Hanna. TALKS BREAK DOWN Talks broke down Saturday for the third lime, since tlie dispute began, but "very infor- mal discussions" took place Sunday and may resume, said Richard West, chairman of the teachers' group. He said "many points were clarified on an informal basis" during late discussions. How- ever, those participating were not representatives of either group. William Casanova, represen- tative of the bargaining agent for the Alberta Teachers' As- sociation, said Saturday the strike would be a long one. "We have attempted lo do everything possible. He said a salary schedule and employer contributions to the health plan were included in a conciliation last May. Tiie recommend ation nn wages, which offered a MX- pcr-cent increase retroactive to the end of the last contract, was accepted by the teachers. It was rejected by the Bow Valley board. The teacher? lie said, are seeking an pay in- crease between 5.5 and 5.9 per cent over a 28-month period. They also want boards tc pay 50 per cent of the com- pulsory health care insurance premiums.

Tell, slain in Cairo Sunday after a little more than a year as premier, was an unrelenting foe of the Palestinian Arab guerrillas who opposed Jordan's monarchy. Hussein's announcement of the. appointment of Lozi came after the 51-year-old Tell was buried in UK royal cemetery in Amman. About persons, many of them weeping, at- tended tlie state funeral. Tears streamed down Hus- sein's face as he offered condol- ences to Tell's widow. SHOT IN FRONT OF HOTEL Tell died of multiple bullet at the entrance to tho Sheraton Hotel in Cairo. Jordan's foreign minister, Ab- dullah Ealah, was grazed in tlie Liberals Ice. and an Egyptian security officer and one" of the gunmen alsc were wcunded. Egyptian authorities arrested four Palestinians with Syrian passports and said three of them admitted shooting Tell. Egypt's Middle East news agency said one of the three, Monzie Khalifa, told interroga- tors the assassination plan was formulated in Beirut by the Black September organization, a movement formed to avenge the guerrillas killed in the Jor- danian army's crackdown in September, 1970. King Hussein broadcast an appeal for unity among Jor- dan's 2.2 million population, two-thirds of it Palestinian. He called Tel! a "true soldier who fought to the last breath of lu's life for Jordan's dignity, peace, security and progress." But there was widespread jubilation among the Palestinians at the murder ol a man they consi- dered one of then- chief ene- mies. Jordanian Arabs under Israeli occupation expressed fear that more warfare is imminent be- tween the guerrillas and the Jordanian army. Journalist JUu- hammed Abu-Sbalbiych of East Jerusalem, an outspoken oppo- nent of King Hussein, wrote: "Hussein will seize this opportu- nity to begin a campaign of gen- ocide against the Palestinian people in Jordan." iirograra announced EDMONTON Premer Pe- ter Lougheed announces pro- jects of the Alberts, govern- ment-initiated "Priority Em- ployment Program" aimed at expanding winter employment opportunities in Alberta.
