PAIR SEPARATED The absence of Vallieres First became known less than a nioiilh before the anniver- sary of last year's crisis, which began Oct. 5 with the kidnapping of British diplo- mat James P.ichard (Jasper) Cross who survived (10 days of FLQ c ptuity while Pierre Lapoiu the kidnapped i i i' minister, was slain one week after his ab- duction Oct. lit. Perhaps the most piquant aspect of [he present situation is tlird Valliores has appar- ently been separated in a sense at least from sociologist Charles Gannon, 32. These (wo central figures in Quebec activism have been linked since IMfi, much of the time in jail or in court mak- ing Iheir way through a laby- rinth of terrorist charges. On Sept. -I, the Montreal Ga- zette carried an interview with Gafinon in which the for- mer university lecturer tolrl reporter George Kadwanski that the revolutionary move- ment did not need violence at present. CHARHKS DROPPED Quebec justice depart- ment announced before the fall a s s i 7. e s suspension of FLQ-connccted c h a r g e s against 32 persons in Mont- real, including Gagnon but not Vallieres. Gagnon and Jacques La- me-Langlois, a former CBC radio producer, were acquit- ted earlier of seditious con- spiracy after similar charges against labor leader Michel Charirand and lawyer Robert Lemieux had been quashed. Justice Minister Jerome Choqiietite's suspension am a proce- dure known as nolle prosequi lo seven from 39 the number of persons still facing trial here and changed the whole outlook of the fall assizes. Onlv two a iicl faced court appearances re- sulting from charges laid under the War Measures Act invoked last Oct. 1C. Vallieres was on hail on the un- tried charges and ou con- tempt of court appeals. As the assizes opened, an- other five men remained be- fore the courts on Criminal Code charges directly related to the death of Mr. Laporte, strangled Oct. 17. NEAIt-ZEHO HKCOItl) Clemency action by Mr. Choquette had expected urged in (he Quebec na- tional view of the Crown's near-zero convic- tion record in the winter, spring and summer assizes in jury trials of persons accused of lesser offences under the emergency legislation. Five of 14 persons charged with seditious offences had appeared for trial in the ear- lier assizes, and all five were acquitted. The conviction record was almost as low in cases involving charges of be- longing to or otherwise sup- porting the FLQ. Six of seven such FLQ-related charges were thrown out. But the special prosecutors at S300 a a perfect 12-For-12 record in handling murder and acces- sory charges arising from the Laporte death. Paul Rose, 27-y ear-old teacher, and laborer Francis Smard, 23. who have ap- pealed their earlier convic- tions for non-capital murder, will go en trial for kidnapping MING'S ANSWER!

Oct. anniversary of the finding of Laporle's hotly. The court set earlier dates for the trials of Jacques Rose, 23, brother of Paul, and Bernard Lorlie, 19, student, both charged with non-capital murder and kidnapping. Chief prosecutor pulled a surprise and aroused the ire of the defence by proceeding first with the kidnapping count against Lor-tie, rather than murder. A jury found Lorlie guilty Sept. 22 on the kidnapping charge and he will be sentenced Nov. 22. No date set for proceeding with a contempt citation resulting from Lortic's action in throwing a ball of paper at Mr. Justice Jean-Paul Bergeron during his trial. The fifth accused, Robert Dupuis, 22, is Ihe last of 11 persons charged with being accessories of the Rose brothers and Simard who were eventually arrested last Dec. 29. Sentences for tile 10 others ranged from six months lo eight years. A ID-member citizens' committee, meanwhile, has been organized to hold hearings anrl study the effects of the War Measures Act across Canada. The committee, which has no official status, was organized because "the government refused lo set up a royal commission though many groups wanted said Fernand Daoust, executive of the Quebec Federation of Labor.
