Plumbers picket construction sites OTTAWA (CP) After two veeks of trying, the Commons :till was unable to agree by Wednesday what it wants to say about a proposed five-megaton nuclear' blast scheduled for this nonth in Canada's Pacific back- yard. Last week, three different MPs tried to get unanimous consent to introduce motions of protest against the underground luclear test scheduled to be det- onated by the U.S. Atomic En- ergy Commission in the Aleu- tian Islands this month. When the first motion was proposed by a New Democrat member, the Liberals denied unanimous consent. Each time two later motions were proposed by Liberal mem- bers, a Conservative member dissented. When one of the Conserva- tives who had declined consent last week proposed his own mo- tion Monday, a Liberal declined. programs cuts are urged BRIGHTON, England (CP- AP) The opposition Labor party urged today that progress be made within a year toward substantial outs in the military programs of both the NATO and the Warsaw pact nations of Eastern Europe.

The statement was circulated to the party's rank and file for a foreign policy debate today at Labor's annual convention. It was virtually certain of ap- proval. MOTIONS READY A variety of motions prepared in advance made clear that La- bor's foreign policy debate will also: the bipartisan tradi- tion on the Irish question by criticizing the government's handling of violence in Northern Ireland. Prime Minister Ed- ward H e a t h's administration against any Rhodesia settle- External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp registered Cana- dian concern about nuclear tests in conferences late last week with both his U.S. and Soviet counterparts, William Rogers and Andrei Gromyko. Meanwhile, representatives of the Commons parties were sup- posed to be working on a for- mula that would satisfy every- one in the House. Government House Leader Allan MaoEachen said Friday the government would solve the problem of getting unanimous consent by introducing the mo- tion the other parties would agree to limit debate. During the weekend, sources from both tho government and the opposition say, it agreed that debate could be lim- ited to a few hours. But then they couldn't agree on the wording. The government wanted a mo- tion specifically aimed at the Amchitka Island test, with sec ondary reference to its opposi- tion to all such nuclear blasts. But the Conservatives wantec something to the motion proposed Monday by Jack Mclntosh Cur rent-Maple wouh direct the protest as strongly against tests in the Sovie Union, China and France as i would against the U.S. test in Alaska.

Socred party president expresses fear of NDP CALGARY (CP) To the So- cial Credit Party, a socialist government in Alberta "would be worse than being Bill Johnson, Social Credit League president, said Wednesday. He told a news conference members are united desire to prevent party from gaining in their socialist power in the province. The demise of So- Credit Party must have better reason to exist than to prevent the NDP from increasing to strength. Mr. Johnson, an Edmonton lawyer, said he expects strong competition for executive posi- tions at the party's Nov. 18-20 convention in Calgary. "If they want to kick the whole executive out, including rial Credit in Alberta would j yours truly, that's good be- open the door to Uie New De- mocrats, he said. His remarks were citidzed by George Ho Lem, MLA for Cal- gary McCall, and by Rev. Pat O'Byrne, defeated Social Cred- it candidate in the Aug. 30 elec- tion. Both attended the news conference. Mr. Ho Lem said the party should be concerned with the Conservative government pol- icy rather than the NDP. Father O'Bryne said the Social cause at least they would be showing they are intereested enough to do something." He also said the party plans a policy seminar here Oct. 20.

The prime minister affirmed this Wednesday night at a meet- ing of his national party and at the same time corrected a wide- spread interpretation of a state- ment he made the previous day about the movements of secu- rity forces against the guerril- las'. Reports of the prime minis- ter's first statement, taken to mean that South African police had crossed the border into Zambia, kept him busy all day Wednesday. At the United Nations in New York, Zambii called for emergency meeting of the Secu- rity Council to consider "crimi- nal acts of aggression against Zambia" launched by South Af- rican forces from South-West Africa. Vorster announced Tuesday Ihe death of a police captain and flic wounding of four police- men in the explosion of a land mine. The men were on border pulrol in the Caprivi Strip, the slender finger of land which juts out from the northern part of Soulh-Wcst Africa to form border witb Angola, Zambia, Rhodesia and Botswana, Vorsler said ho already had warned other states that South African police were prepared to cross their borders in pursuit of guerrillas.

WASHINGTON (Reutcr) The U.S. Senate passed Wednes- day a complex 521 billion mili- tary weapons procurement bill containing controversial amend- ments to restrict United States activities in Vietnam and Laos. The bill now goes to a joint Senate-House conference com- mittee which must iron out 100 differences between the ver- sions passed by each chamber. The bill, passed by a vote of 82 to 4, authorizes the adminis- tration to spend billion dur- ing the present fiscal year end- ing next June 30 on the deploy- ment of the anti-ballistic missile system and on weapons such as aircraft and tanks. During its two weeks of de- bale, the bill became a vehicle for the Senate to try to modify U.S. Indochina policies. It added an amendment by Senator Mike Mansfield (Dem.- Mont.) calling for a complete United States troop withdrawal 'rom Indochina within six months after the bill becomes aw, if all U.S. prisoners of war are released. The amendment, approved 57 to 38, faces strong opposition from members of the House of Representatives, where admin- istration supporters succeeded in removing the time deadline from an otherwise identical amendment. Another point of dispute will be a Senate amendment impos- ing congressional limitations for the first time on U.S. spending in the ground war in Laos. The amendment, passed Mon- day, provides a ceiling of million on U.S. assistance to the royal Laotian government, ex- clusive of the air war. The closest vote of the long debate was a 40-40 roll call by which the Senate defeated an amendment to block establish- ment of a U.S. production line for the Hairier "jump jet" the marime corps is buying from Britain. The Senate defeated 60 to 25 Wednesday an amendment which would have cut off U.S. funds and troop support for Ihe South Vietnamese government unless it held democratic and competitive elections by Feb. 3, 1ST72.
