Disease at Elk Island CALGARY (CP) Visitors to Elk Island National Park, 20 miles east of Edmonton, are being warned an infec- tious disease that could affect humans has been detected in park animals. Parks Canada officials said Friday the disease may be transmitted through contact with diseased animals, blood- sucking flies, fleas or other bugs, or by drinking or bathing in contaminated water.

Gold seized in Calgary CALGARY (CP) A Calgary financial writer has accused federal tax officers of illegally seizing gold worth millions of dollarsln lightning raids last month on his home. C. V. Myers, author of a widely-read financial news- letter, said the gold belongs to United States citizens and was held tor them in: Canada be- cause American citizens are prohibited from owning gold.

Mr. Myers said no Canadian laws were violated by acquir- ing and holding gold for Americans, adding the gold could not be moved or sold directly by its owners.

A jury of nine women and three men was sworn in Friday. Another six women were seated as alternate jurors. After hearing U.S. District Judge John Sirica admonish them to "use your good com- mon sense and approach this matter the jurors and alternates were es- corted home to pack for what may be three or four months separated from their families. The jurors are lodged in a midtown motor hotel about two miles from the courthouse. After the jurors were seated Wilson reviews economic woes LONDON (CP) Prime Minister Harold Wilson, confi- dent of his party's parliamen- tary future despite its narrow majority in Parliament, is working this weekend on a Labor program for the crucial problems facing Britain. But there are that Edward Heath, main opponent in the British election Thursday, may resign as Conservative leader after losing three of his four contests against Labor. Backbench Tory Nicholas Winterton has demanded that the Conservatives choose "a more sensitive grassroots politician" as their leader. He said Heath's brand of leadership "does not appeal to the mass of the electorate." The election moved Labor from a minority position to a majority of three seats over all other parties combined. The Conservatives lost 20 seats over the February elec- tion that Labor used to push them out of office. Wilson has said the various opposition groups are unlikely to unite in any attempt to br- ing down the Labor government. and shielded from publicity about the case, Sirica made public pre-trial motions which he had sealed during jury selection. In one, former president Richard Nixon's doctor said he must undergo treatment for phlebitis for a period of be- tween three and five months, and that to travel to Washing- ton to appear as a witness dur- ing that period might create "a potentially very serious risk to his health." John Ehrlichman, former White House aide, and the prosecutors have subpoenaed Nixon to appear as a witness. Citing Nixon's health, lawyers for the former president ask- ed that the subpoenas be dis- missed. In addition, former White House staff chief H.R. Halde- man said in another motion that he intends to seek Nixon's testimony. Australia ready for uranium sale RUG DRAPES LTD. FNEE ESTIMATES PhOM 329-4722 COLLEGE SYDNEY, Australia (Reuter) Australia is ex- pected to release some of its tons of uranium for sale overseas in the next few months in a policy switch designed to take advantage of a doubling in price of the mineral in the last 18 months. The decision to ease a government ban on uranium exports is likely to emerge from a major policy review of the country's huge mineral resources by Prime Minister Gough Whitlam's Labor government Australia is estimated to possess about a quarter of the world's known uranium re- serves. They are in the arid Northern Territory and worth at least billion. Private enterprise producers accuse Minerals Minister Rex Connor of failure to outline a govern- ment policy since Labor took power almost two years ago, and accuse him of mpving towards 'de facto nationaliza- tion of the uranium industry in which British and United States multi-national cor- porations have sunk millions of dollars. Connor has used his govern- menf powers to ban Iffl ex- ports, but has indicated recently this may be changed in the near future. The-rationale behind Con- nor's ban has been to wait for world prices to rise. The rise has taken place and Connor told Parliament his policy is to ensure Australia receives "the going world price" for its uranium. Uranium mining was halted in 1962 when world prices slumped. Connor has announced that any future sales overseas will be on a government-to-govern- ment basis. He stressed the future sales abroad will be limited to coun- tries which have signed the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Downtown Lethbridge is Growing and so must we!

A 20-year-old flying saucer story turned out L to be responsible for all the commotion. Robert Carr, a Hollywood screen writer, who lectured at the University of South Florida last year, was promoting a Flying Saucer Symposium to be held next month in Tampa. At a news conference Friday, he repeated information from a book published in the early 1950s, and a number of radio listeners apparently heard fragments of the report. Buzz Kiltnan, news director at WSHE-FM in Fort Lauderdale, said: "Our phones haven't stopped ringing all day." Budget may be on TV Regal hug A Fiji dancing maid embraces Prince Charles, heir to 'the British throne, today in Suva. The prince was attending ceremon- ies marking the centenary of Fiji becoming a British colony. OTTAWA (CP) Televi- sion cameras might be in the Commons on an experimental basis as early as the budget speech next month. The idea of starting televi- sion experimentally was rais- ed again Friday by Govern- ment House Leader Mitchell Sharp, the main government proponent of televised proceedings. He did not go into details, but a gov- ernment source indicated later that television coverage of the budget speech may be proposed. "We are not justified in fur- ther delay; it should be tested Mr. Sharp said during the throne speech debate. "In my view, and the view of the government, it should be possible to bring to Canadians not only the open- ing of Parliament, now on the way to becoming a tradition on the nation's screens, but perhaps one or two important episodes of parliamentary business on an experimental basis." A budget is a top parlia- mentary episode and one is scheduled by Nov. 15. For balance, any televising of a budget would probably in- clude Commons coverage of comment from major opposi- tion spokesmen. Television coverage now is limited to the formal opening of Parliament, when the throng speech outlining government legislative plans is read by the Governor- General or his representative in the Senate. Support for coverage of dai- ly Commons proceedings came Friday from at least one opposition member, J. Patrick Nowlan napolis "Television would un- mask the clown. It would un- dress the he said. The presence of cameras would also shorten debates, sharpen speeches, reduce repetition and restrain cat- calls, he argued. But a colleague, Don Mazankowski (PC T Vegre- said parliamentary reform should take a back seat to pressing national issues such as inflation. The .cost of living- has jumped 40 per cent since the Liberals took office in 1968, he said. Unemployment was serious, with worse predicted for 1975, and the agriculture and transport industries were in a mess. Spokesmen indicate there is a strong view that the govern- ment should establish its own television and recording sys- tem, releasing either videotape or a live feed for use as reporters and networks see fit. Faulkner to meet with magazine reps Special to The Herald OTTAWA There is "no di- vision" that he is aware of, among the cabinet on its policy toward Canadian magazines and their support by the government, State Secretary Hugh Faulkner told the commons Friday. He also hinted that the gov- ernment appears to have gone as far as it can go in providing additional financial help to the magazine Saturday Night publishing. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield raised the question. He preceded it with the state- ment there'bad been reports that the government is divided on its policy concerning periodicals. He noted that the state secretary had received an Turkey vote soon WASHINGTON (AP) Congress has put off its cam- paign recess for a week to act on President Ford's promised veto of its cutoff of United States military aid to Turkey. Senate and House of Repre- sentatives leaders cancelled plans to start the month-long recess Friday night after the House killed a 60-day delay of the cutoff. The administration had said passage of the delay would have avoided the veto. open letter regarding the future of Saturday Night.

Munro recommends training change TORONTO (CP) Federal Labor Minister John Munro says this summer's average unemployment rate of five per cent was still too high and selective measures are need- ed to lower it In an Ottawa interview with The Globe and Mail, Mr. Munro said some of the un- employment reflects the inadequacy of the government's past efforts in training programs. Statistics Canada announc- ed Tuesday that the un- employment rate for September was 5.8 per cent "There is a tremendous de- mand for people, particularly skilled people, and yet we have these high unemploy- ment Mr. Munro said. He said there is a need for changes in training and retraining programs such as those offered by Canada Man- power rather than relying on fiscal and monetary policies. 328 5th Street South Lethbridge VOTE GRANT K.
