'Striking does least liarm9 Trustees blamed by teachers RED DEER (CP) Tire Al- berta School Trustees' Associa- tion must accept a major part of the blame for contract diffi- culties which may result la a strike by more than 850 teach- ers Friday, the president of the Alberta Teachers' Association said Monday. Walter L. Hughes of Edmon- ton told a news conference 000 leathers in other parts of the province have been able to settle contracts easily because they have dealt directly with school boards. He said negotiations have broken down only in areas where the trustees adopted zone bargaining. "Some teachers have been from 10 to 18 months without a contract and there have been indications that teachers have been bending over backwards but the turslees won't compro- mise a little for settlement." The more than 850 teachers in eight school districts north and west of Edmonton an- nounced Monday they will go on strike Friday, leaving students without classes. Teachers in other areas may follow later. Employed by boards belong- ing to the North Central West School Authorities Association, the teachers want inclusion of a consultation clause in their contract but the boards have rejected it. A consultation clause would compel each board to notify teachers of any policy changes affecting working conditions. Teachers would have an oppor- tunity to comment on the change but the board still would have the right to make the change even if teachers disagree. The teachers say such a clause would give them a voice in decision-making but would leave the boards free to make the final decision of policy changes. The boards argue the clause would IK the first step in a complete takeover of edu- cation by teachers. Meanwhile, a consultation clause also is the issue in a strike vote scheduled this week by teachers ill the Battle River School Authorities Asso- ciation in eignl central coun- ties. In the Bow Valley Associa- tion of the Calgary area, 650 teachers are to vote this week on a mediation proposal, details of which have not been made public; and teachers in the Southern Alberta School Authorities Association have applied to the board of indus- trial relations for a strike vole. Mr. Hughes said the dispute could "set us back 30 years" and said the teachers' associa- tion prefers thai teachers talk directly to the boards which employ them. "Teachers do not like to he said. "They know it costs them in terms of salary and public image but striking does the least harm to the kids." 'Anglo Irish tragedy' Faulkner faces new Parliament BELFAST (CP) Prime Minister Brian Faulkner, sitting on one of the world's hottest po- litical seats, faced a new Parlia- ment by escalating violence in Northern Ireland and harried by rebellion within his own governing party. Three years to the day since tho politico-religious strife burst Rare opinion in Montana HELENA, Mont. (AP) In a rare advisory opinion, the Montana Supreme Court has authorized the state to invest public school funds in any type of security fully guaranteed by the federal government. The unsigned opinion vastly extended the investment pos- sibilities that previously were largely limited to savings bonds. The court said it is the safety of the investment, not Vci'-. name of the securities invested in, which is restricted by the coa stitution and statute law. The opinion was requested by the Montana Board of Invest- ments.

New dose of debate for govt. grain bill By DOUG SMALL OTTAWA (CP) Hopes for a week-long truce in the Com- mons grains-payments dispute were shattered Monday as New Democrats and a handful of Conservatives lunged into de- bate against the government's grain-income stabilization bill. The three Prairie agriculture ministers Friday asked that de- bate on the bill be adjourned a week while they and other farm leaders attempted to make it more acceptable to critics. But the government, again put the matter up for Commons consideration because, said Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, the Conservatives refused to agree to the ceasefire request.

Pteporfltwl Gasoline storage prohibited FOREMOST (Special) A bylaw passed recently by the council of tlie Village of Fore- most prohibits or restricts the storage of gasoline on property within the village. In the opinion of the council, the fire chief and members of the volunteer fire brigade, tha storage of gasoline in the ur- ban community in places other than standard gasoline outlets is undesirable. It was felt that in the event of a fire emer- gency, it is difficult, if not im- possible to move quantities of gasoline in excess of five gal- lons. S o r i o u s property damage could result if there is a fire and there has been a fuel leak- age. A further hazard is the potential loss of life or limb, ci- ther to the volunteer firemen or to members of the public. Conviction for offence under the provisions of this bylaw carries a penalty of up to and in default of payment im- prisonment of up to six months. the postponement had the gov- ernment agreed to significant amendments to its bill. Government House Leader Allan MacEachen told him Mon- day chances for amendment were "very, very Mr. Baldwin said. The bill would set up a Joint fund into which the government would contribute twice the amount put in by farmers each year. When the total income of all farmers dropped below a running five-year average, pay- ments would be made to grain growers. The plan would replace two main subsidy programs now in effect: The' Temporary Wheat Reserves Act, under which the government pays the storage costs for surplus wheat, a deal whereby the government makes up any deficits in wheat board payouts. The wheat board pays farm ers for their grain when they deliver it. If board sales come to less than the farmers were paid, the government makes up the difference. As debate on the income sta- bilization bill wore on, its pas- sage became increasingly un- certain. Mr. Lang said last week he would withdraw the bill if the opposition continued a series of procedural attacks stalling its high-way paving talks ivill resume OTTAWA (CP) Canada- United Slates talks on possible paving of he Alaska highway will resume after Canada fin- ishes a survey on IJio origin and destination of traffic on the rond, External Af- fnirs Minister Mitchell Sharp said Monday.

Later, Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield issued a state- ment saying his party will aban- don attempts to balk the bill by procedural manoeuvres. But Jack Horner long opposed to the legis- lation, predicted in an interview that the bill would die any way under the weight of 14 amend- ments already on the agenda. Four of the amendments have been put forward by the Con- servatives. In debate, he said an election was needed so the people could decide if they wanted the gov< ernmejit to remain in power. By refusing to postpone debate the government added to the feeling it could not be trusted. into violence on the streets 0: Ulster, Faulkner faced, in the words of The Financial Times of London, perhaps "the last acl in the Anglo-Irish tragedy." The 52-seat Parliament has been reduced to virtually an all-government party assembly boycotted by all but one of its 15 opposition members. With the defection of the pro- Roman Catholic opposition Protestant ranks are dividec among themselves as Parlia- ment resumed after a tliree- month summer recess. On the streets, four person? have been killed and 13 wounded in the last 48 hours of explosions and shootings. The death toll slands at 116 in two of them British sol- diers charged with keeping the peace. QUESTION TOUGHNESS Hardline Protestant rightists accuse Faulkner of not being tough enough in the fight to de- feat the urban guerrilla cam- paign of the Catholic-based Irish Republican Army, dedicated to uniting the mainly-Protestant North with the Catholic Irish Republic to the south. The rightists, led by premier- ship-contender William Craig and fiery Protestant evangelist Rev. Ian Paisley, are drawing up a motion of censure with which to confront Faulkner today.

Many observers fear that un- less Faulkner and the British Army introduce tougher mea- sures that are seen to be effec- tive, a massive Protestant back- lash could begin. But with 14 opposition mem- bers of Parliament boycotting the assembly because they be- lieve Faulkner has been too tough, Faulkner is in a di- lemma. A major bomb blast took the Election date may he set ST. JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) Premier Joseph Smalhvood indi- cated today that announcement of a provincial general election will come at a news conference Wednesday. "As a matter of fact I expect :o call a press conference to- morrow and on that ccasion I may have something to Smallwood said in an inter- view when asked if he planed :o announce the electon before :he end of the week. If announced Wednesday the earliest date on which the elec- :ion could be held would be Oct. 27 although speculation here is hat Oct. 28 or Nov. 1 are more ikely dates.

The army identified the dead soldier as Guardsman Brian Hall, 22, who was married and had a small child. An army spokesman said ft was estimated that between 60 and 100 pounds of gelignite was used in the bomb, which had been planted in a store next to the army post near the so-called peace line dividing Protestant and Catholic communities.
