H y 1 i a r d Chappell (L-Peel South), speaking on the third | day of the eight-day throne speech debate said FLQ members now in prison were led by 'international political gangs- I ters." Kidnap Targets Top Officials Warned WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House and the United States justice department have warned top government officials and members of Congress that they may become targets for abduction by revolutionaries. Senator William B. Saxbe (Rep. Ohio), in telling of the warnings to members of Congress, said he believes the only way to halt "political blackmail" before it starts is to make it a federal crime for officials to give in to it. His disclosures came shortly after a justice department official told reporters the FBI has received reports some U.S. terrorist groups may try to kidnap foreign diplomats or campaigning politicians in the style of recent political kidnappings in Canada and Latin America. "The only way to prevent this kind of blackmail,." Saxbe said, "is to make it a federal offence for anyone in government to accede to this kind of thing."

Then, too, my family like variety... and Monarch Cake Mixes come in 11 delicious flavours. And Monarch's Pouch-Pak means substantially lower cost, which I very much appreciate these days. I also find the Pouch-Pak handier than bulky boxes. (For a single layer cake you use one Pouch-Pak... for a 2-layer cake - 2 Pouch-Paks... with directions clearly marked on every Pak). Great idea: Why not treat your family to-night? _ DO YOU REALIZE that over 6 generations of Canadians - chil- i--, . dren and adults - have used DR. FOWLER'S EXTRACT OF WILD STRAWBERRY for relief of diarrhea? My own grandmother was a booster of Dr. Fowler's... and for a very good reason. Fowler's is a gentle, restorative formula, based on roots and herbs. It relieves nausea and cramps... and gently restores intestinal balance. Dr. Fowler's is not constipating, although it does act quickly. It has come to the aid of many a distressed mother after her children have over-Indulged in food or play.

Earlier in the day in Montreal, the Quebec College of Physicians and Surgeons called for the striking doctors to return to work immediately. In a separate announcement, the Quebec Association of Hospitals described the strike as "intolerable and prejudicial to the health of the population," and called on the government to take corrective measures. Dr. Augustin Roy, college registrar, said in an interview that the request was made because "patients are in need of care." He said copies of the college's appeal were sent to federations representing the striking specialists, general practitioners and Premier Bourassa. , WON'T GO BACK But the medical specialists said in a statement after a meeting of the federation's executive that the specialists do not intend to go back to work at this time. They labelled as false reports from the health department, which were endorsed by the Quebec College of Physicians and Surgeons, saving the situation was critical. STARTED LAST WEEK The specialists began their strike last Thursday in particular opposition to the opting-out clause in the government's medical care legislation. The clause allows the specialists to remain outside the plan but says the government would not pay the medical bills of persons using their services. The legislation was to become effective Nov. 1 but it was feared the kidnap crisis might delay its implementation. The specialists have been maintaining essential services during the strike and 38 of the province's hospitals have been designated to handle emergency cases. she said irritation.

MOSCOW (Reuter) - A Middle East peace plan including creation of demilitarized zones and introduction of a UN peacekeeping force was spelled out by the Soviet Union today. The official Soviet news agency Tass said the Soviet proposals also included suggestions for direct guarantees by either the Big Four power-the U.S., Russia Britain and France-or by the UN Security Council. The Soviet proposals were set out in a detail in an article in Pravda, the Communist party newspaper. Under the Soviet proposals the borders of the Middle East states would be guaranteed by the adoption of concrete commitments by both sides. "The Soviet proposals also provide for the establishment of demilitarized zones on both sides of the border-these zones will give no advantages to either side and restrictions of a purely military nature will be applied to them-for the introduction of UN troops into a number of points and for direct guarantees. by the. four powers or by the UN1 Security Council," Pravda said. and it cannot be a stable one without a withdrawal of Israeli troops from the vast Arab territories captured by them." assault of a member of Congress a federal offence punishable by life imprisonment and death. The bill then went to the House of Representatives where ii was tacked on to (he broadly-supported Safe Streets Act. The whole package will go to a joint House-Senate committee after Congress meets again Nov. 16. If (the joint committee succeeds in working out a com promise between Senate and House versions, the rewritten bill will be submitted again for passage in the two houses. The Senate bill was sponsored by Senator Robert C. Byrd (Dem. W.Va.) who said there have been 88 U.S. political assassinations, assaults and ait-tempted assaults since 1835. Under federal law penalties would range up to death for as sassination. Such crimes now come under jurisdiction of the individual states. Byrd argued state law is inadequate to handle the "increase in political violence." A law enacted several years ago made it a federal crime to assassinate, kidnap or assault the president or vice-president, REFERS TO IRAEL Referring to Israeli concern about secure borders, Pravda said: "It is absolutely clear that in the technique the safety of a border is created not by the possibility of it being shifted a few miles, but by securing its universal recognition." The newspaper added: "It is absolutely obvious that such a peace cannot be ensured by encouraging the aggressor Dent's Son Hurt In Accident EDMONTON (CP) - Peter Albert Dent 6, son of Edmonton mayor Ivor Dent, suffered head and back injuries in a traffic accident here. Police said Peter was going home from school when the bicycle he was riding collided with a car at an intersection in east Edmonton. The Criminal Code should be amended to provide the "strictest penalty for those who kidnap people and hold them as hostages or pirate a plane or vessel, or place bombs where there is a reasonable chance of causing death." The legal definition of conspiracy and conspirators should be expanded to include those "who openly support and encourage conspiracies." Trial and appeal procedures should be speeded "so that the final penalty is carried out and attempts to rescue them by committing further crimes are thwarted." WOULD FORCE DICLOSURE Mr. Chappell said a new type of hearing should be instituted 'at least during this emergency" in which people "are forced to disclose the names of their fellow conspirators." Along with making membership in the FLQ a crime, Mr. Chappell recommended tightened immigration laws "to forbid entrance to Canada of those who preach the violent overthrow of our system," Andre Fortin (Creditiste-Lot-biniere) introduced a non-confidence motion attacking the government for not increasing family allowances as a step to a guaranteed annual income. The motion along with a Con servation, will be voted on later in the debate. An NDP non-confidence motion was defeated Tuesday night. Earlier in the House, Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien said there was no program in his department for sterilization of Eskimo women And Prime Minister Trudeau said in the question period he could not say whether nuclear disarmament had been discussed in negotiations leading to the diplomatic recognition by Canada of Communist China. While Mr. Chappell stressed the danger of terrorism in Canada, James A. McGrath (PC- St. John's East) said the greatest threat to democracy in this country is the destruction of Parliament by this government." Prime Minister Trudeau "has systematically set out to destroy this institution" with revised procedural rules adopted in 1968. Referring to the FLQ kidnappings, Mr. McGrath said the government "acted responsibly in placing paramount importance on the maintenance of the rule of law." T. C. DOUGLASS . . . anniversary noted NDP Leader 35 Years In Commons OTTAWA (CP) - T. C. Douglas, New Democrat leader, first entered the Commons 35 years ago Wednesday, and Speaker Lucien Lamoureux noted the anniversary by complimenting the NDP leader on "a survival rate seldom seen in our history."
