In theory, this produces a rapidly growing network of salesmen-investors in a pyva- mid-sliapcd marketing struc- ture. Depending on your in- up to can buy into var- ious levels of (he pyramid. But just like the old-fash- ioned chain-letter schemes, most participants lose their money. So promoters of pyramid selling operations in Canada are beginning to run into stiff opposition and controls. A Cross-Canada Survey by The Canadian Press shows most provinces have laid down strict rules for such schemes. Definition has been vital in drawing up legislation to con- trol pyramid or multi-level selling. An Ontario ministerial com- mittee described it as a sys- tem of marketing goods or sendees by recruiting people to different levels of dislribu- lion. depending on [he amount of their investment. F.mohasis was on the sale of distributor- ships, not Ihe sale of the prod- uct. Those high up the line profited from the smallest investor. The Ontario committee agreed with Alberta lesisla- tion on the essential distin- guishing feature of pyramid the invest menl brings with it a right to re- cruit other investors. In other voids, recruHmen tor gain is heir main clement. This excludes miili-levcl marketing based primarily on the sale of the product and where investment is limited to those who have the proven ability to sell it. The flush of pyramid selling the 1960s covered such products as cosmetics, car safety devices, pots and pans, self-improvement courses, de- tergents, paintings and retail discount ca'.'ds.

Canada to renew talks on fisheries treaty VANCOUVER (CP) Envi- appropriation towards construc- onment Minister Jack Davis lion of Frascr spawning chan- aid Tuesday Canada will re- egotiale Uie International Pa- if ic salmon fisheries treaty ,th a view to increasing Cana- ian fishermen's share of alxnon heading through inter- ational waters lo the Frasor jver.

Under the treaty, the U.S. put up half the cost of rehabilitat- ing Fraser runs following the Hell's Gate slide in the Fraser Canyon in 1913, and in return shares half the runs which go through the Strait of Juan de Fuca to the Fraser. There have been recurring disputes over sharing of the catch and Mr. Davis said It is time to re-evaluate the Fraser, fishery in relation to other runs in B.C. rivers. U.S. fishery authorities hove been calling for renegotiation of the treaty according to dollar value, Mr. Davis said. U.S. HAS BEST SHARE U.S. fishermen intercept Ca- nadian salmon running to the Nass and Skeena rivers in northwestern B.C., he said, and Canadian officials believe the Americans have had the best part of the bargain. The minister conceded that Canp.rlian Irollcrs ope-ating off the west coast of Vancouver j Island have cul into returns of U.S. salmon stocks reared un- der a hatchery program. Canada is prepared to take this in the balance, he said, and a new agreement could limit the Canadian troller catches. But the principle is that the salmon destined for the rivers of one country should caught by fishermen of that country, he said. Mr. Davis also commented on U.S. ban on American fislv size of the Western Canada fishing fleet by purchasing fish- boat and selling them for usa outside the Canadian fishery. He said of 220 salmon boat.? sold by auction, only 116 have been bought by Americans. And less than half would qualify for U.S. fishing under the Jones Act which prohibits use of for- eign-built commercial vessels of more than five tons, he said. Ho said that although the virus has never seen be- fore in humans, it resembles vi- ruses known to cause cancer in animals. At least five other "candi- date" viruses suspected of causing various types of human cancer have been found by other research teams in recent years, but no human cancer has been traced to a virus. Fraley, chief of urology at University of Minnesota Hospi- tals, will make a detailed re- port on the discovery of the new virus by his research team at the American College of Sur- geons meeting In San Francisco this week. crmcn using bought at low prices in tho Canadian gov- ernment program to reduce the CHOICE OF EIGHT OTTAWA (CP) In Ontario, a funeral Erector is required to show his clients at least eight caskets, Kays a news release from Ihe Consumers' Associa- tion of Canada.
