Crowds were six deep around the castle but elsewhere on the president's route the turnout was not heavy.

Tax Income To Pay Cost Of Education EDMONTON (CP) A per- sonal income tax would be the best way to meet education costs expected to hit billion in Alberta by 1981, two Univer- sity of Alberta professors said here. Dr. E. J. Hanson and Dr. P. J. Atherton, in a position paper prepared for the com- mission on educational plan- ning, say only the income tax base has the necessary elasti- city to provide for the increas- ing quality and quantity of edu- cation in tho future. 'It is suggested, therefore, that the provincial share of ed- ucational cost, now amounting lo somc.BO per cent, be raised from tho general revenue of the province through tho per- sonal incomu tai."

Court's Decision To Delav j Libel Case Charges Rapped EDMONTON (CP) An Al- berta Supreme Court stay of proceedings against four per- sons charged with criminal li- bel has been described by the Alberta Human Rights Asso- ciation as "intolerable." Dr. John Packer, president of the said Sunday the court's action violated the right of the four to a fair hear- ing and also violated their right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. Frederick Herzog, 35, his wife Susan, 24, Roger Ten Traey, 23, and Ian Walker, 22, all of Edmonton, appeared in court last Wednesday and the stay of proceedings was grant- ed after the crown requested it.

Arab envoys and representa- tives of the Palestinian Armed Straggle Command persuaded the commandos to leave. For two hours the commandos held an airport officer as a hos- tage, but were persuaded to re- lease him. Seventeen hours after the plane unexpectedly arrived it flew out carrying 42 of its 43 commando passengers. The 43rd ran from the plane shortly before it took off and struggled with officials on the runway. He will be flown out on the next available plane, officials said. Troops surrounded Hie air- liner and two armed cars drew up outside the airport entrance. Following the release of the hostage, the Lebanese authori- ties released the airliner pilot and two members of the crew they had detained earlier, air- port security sources said. The sources said the passen- hoard tho plane comprised 25 Jordanians, 11 Lebanese, four Syrians and three Iraqis. The commandos had at least six guns and five pror.adcs on board, the sources said. The commandos said they hod originally been based in Leba- non but Jordan when fight ing broke llicre with the Jordanian army, the, sources said. The commandos now want to return to Lebanon. cried Herzog. "We have been in prison for three months on .phoney charges and now we are being refused a, chance to address the court." Dr. Packer said the denial of a hsaring should be of concern to every citizen, "even if not to the attorney-general." "They have been charged, they are still charged and will Cabinet Meeting Called QUEBEC (CP) The Quebec cabinet meets today to study critical issues in the medical care insurance impasse as in- creasing absenteeism among specialists reached about 30 per cent Sunday. Health Minister Claude Cas- tonguay said in a television broadcast Sunday night the cab- inet will study monetary -adjust- ments for doctors under the plan. The cabinet also is expected to discuss emergency legislation to implement medicare by Nov. 1 and possible action if the spe- cialists go through with a threatened total withdrawal of :rvices. Meanwhile, a Montreal radiol. ogist says "many" local medi- cal specialists are receiving at- tractive job offers from outside the province. Dr. Marvin Lougheed, an offi- cial of the Quebec Federation of Medical Specialists, would not say how many offers had been received but added that "there's a wide choice of locations open to us." remain charged with criminal libel until such time as the crown decides to take .further he said. "For the crown to not now proceed with the casa or drop the charges is intolerable." After Herzog's outburst hi the courtroom, RCMP moved in and asked the four defen dants to leave. They refusec and a wild fight erupted. They were taken into custod; but leleased shortly afterwarc by RCMP and city police who said no charges would be laic because of the melee. The Herzogs, Ten Trey am Walker were charged in June with publishing defamatory re- marks about Magistrate John Coughlan and the city's courts in the June 29 issue of the Pro- gressive Workers Journal. A stay of prodceedings does not mean charges are with drawn. It means simply tha the crown does not intend to proceed with them at the time Convicts Bow To Mayor's Ultimatum NEW YORK (AP) Prison- ers at the last city prison in their hands bowed to an ultima- tum today by Mayor John V Lindsay and 'freed three hos- tages they had held since Thurs- day.

The Progressive Conserva- Paper Workers Strike THUNDER BAY (CP) Members of the United Paper- makers and paperworkers Union at the Abitibi provincial paper limited plant here went on strike at 8 a.m. today. The 550 union members left their jobs this morning as talks between the union and the Abi- tibi Paper Company officials were scheduled to open in To- ronto. The Thunder Bay plant was the third to be hit by strike ac- tion. Plants in S'ault Ste. Marie and Iroquois Falls Were hit Fri- day. Union members at the Abi- tibi Paper Company mill in Thunder Bay voted over the weekend to postpone any strike action until Wednesday. Similar action has been taken at the Abitibi plant in Pine Falls, Man., where 70 union members voted to stay at "work until Wednesday, pending the outcome of the Toronto talks. The Union is seeking a seven- per-cent wage increase, or 29 cents an hour, in the first year of a three-year agreement. They are seeking an additional seven-per-cent in the second year and so cents in the third. Wages now average an hour. Tom Curley, a union spokes- man, said the company has of- fered a two-year contract with 27 and 26 cent increases. tive Leader was commenting on a proposal at a party con- ference Saturday that a five- per-cent provincial sales tax be established to help cover the rising costs of education. Dr. B. T. Keeler, executive director of the Alberta Teach- er's Association said the tax, with -fairly broad exemptions, would yield more than mil- lion in 1071. Mr. Lougheed said the meet- ing confirmed his opposition to the tax. Dr. Walter Worth, chairman of the commission on educa- tional planning in Alberta, told the conference it appears the public is prepared to pay for quality education. "I think politicians are more concerned about that (money) than perhpas the clients." Sanitation Strike Fouls ILK.
