40 THE LETHMIOai HERALD TllMdcy, October IS, Newfoundland's progress praised by Prince Philip GANDER, Nfld. Philip congratulated Newfoundland Monday night for the progress achieved since the island and Labrador became a Canadian province 25 years ago. The Prince, who arrived at the international airport here earlier in the day for a 20-hour visit to central Newfoundland, also recalled at a state ban- quet the island's .historic connections with Britain. The banquet, attended by Lt.Gov. Gordon A. Winter, Premier Frank Moores, the provincial cabinet and members of the judiciary, was the last in a series held during the last six months to mark the 25th anniversary of Newfoundland's union with Canada. Prince Philip said the deci- sion by Newfoundlanders to join Canada showed that un- iting for the common good could be beneficial. He said Newfoundland would have an excuse for another celebration in 25 500th anniversary of the island's rediscovery by John Cabot in 1497. The Cabot landfall and an attempt by Norsemen from Greenland to colonize New- foundland a thousand ago gave the island a longer period of contact with Britain and Europe than any other part of North America. He suggested New- foundlanders also would have an excuse for celebration in 1983 to mark the 400th anni- versary of the visit by Sir Humphrey Gilbert, whose tak- ing possession of New- foundland for Queen Elizabeth I was the starting point for what later became the British Empire. Prince Philip, who was to visit the port of Botwood, 70 miles west of here, today before leaving for the Cana- dian Forces Base at Gagetown, N.B., and Montreal, brought "greetings and warm wishes" from the Queen. Don Jamieson, minister of regional economic expansion and the province's only representative in the federal cabinet, presented the premier with a book outlining Canada's relations with New- foundland in the years 1935-49. The book includes New- foundland's strategic role dur- ing the Second World War, es- pecially the growth of Gander as a staging point for Atlantic Ferry Command. The ferry command flew newly-built warplanes to Bri- tain from factories in North America with Gander as the last and most important stop. There are also chapters dealing with the importance' of Newfoundland in the Battle of the Atlantic when St. John's was a base for destroyers attempting to protect merchants ships from Nazi submarines. Copies of the book, which contains some previously un- pubughied photographs of the Four remain in hospital Four people injured in two separate accidents Friday night and Saturday morning remain in hospital in fairx to satisfactory condition, hospital officials said this morning.

Premier Moores announced that the Duke of Edinburgh award in Canada "henceforth will be promoted and fostered in this province through the department of rehabilitation and recreation." Mr. Moores-said some awards had been presented in Newfoundland under the program founded by His Royal Highness but they had been won through individual effort and not through a concerted effort on a provin- cial basis. The premier said the award is a program of activities de- signed to encourage persons between the ages of 14 and 21 to make the best possible use of iheir leisure time. The menu included such Newfoundland delicacies as soup made from as ptar- migan elsewhere in Can- a dessert of partridge berries, cooked with sugar, and ice cream. The Prince's visit to Botwood today was planned to give bun an opportunity to see members of the Second Battlion, Royal Canadian Regiment, on manoeuvres, but the exercises were cancelled because of a recent cutback in military spending. Th'e Prince, colonel in chief of the regiment, now is scheduled to visit the base in Gagetown, but will place a wreath at a Botwood war memorial before travelling to Gagetown and Montreal, where he is to attend a meeting of the International Equestrian Association.

Ex-dancer backs accident version of Congressman Meetings on land use set for South "WASHINGTON (AP) Breaking a week-long silence, the woman involved in a bi- zarre incident wUh Representative Wilbur Mills has backed up his version and complained that the press "is trying to destroy a great man." "What Mr. Mills said was exactly what the 38-year-old Argentine and former dancer said in a telephone interview Monday night. She is reported to have worked as a stripper, in a Washington nightclub and was billed as "the Argentine firecracker." Annabel Battistella said that accounts of the episode may also ruin "me and my chances of going back to school." But she expressed con- fidence that the political career of Mills, chairman of the House ways and means committee, will not be reined by the episode which took place early Oct. 7. '1 am sure when he goes to Arkansas, he will be able to talk to his people like he used she said. Mrs. Battistella refused to elaborate on Mills's statement about the events of Oct. 7 be- yond saying it was accurate. But she differed with U.S. Park Police accounts in at least one aspect. Police said she jumped into the Tidal Basin, a backwater of the Potomac River, after police, stopped Mills's speeding, unlighted car and he emerged smelling of alcohol and his face was bleeding. A policeman pulled Mrs. Battistella from the water. "I didn't jump into the Tidal Basin. I she said. "I got hysterical because the officer was drowning me. I didn't' need his help. I am an expert swimmer." Mills's account said that he had a bon-voyage party for Gloria Sanchez, a cousin and houseguest of Mrs. Battistella, who was returning to her native Argentina. He said his wife, Polly, had a broken foot and insisted that Pipeline upheld WASHINGTON (AP) -The United States Supreme Court upheld today the con- stitutionality of tiie Trans- Alaska Pipeline Authorization Act passed by Congress last year. The act cleared the way for the granting of a permit to Al- yeska Pipeline Corp. and plac- ed strict limits on en- vironmental lawsuits against the oil-gas transportation pro- ject. The court sustained without comment a decision by U.S. District Judge Joseph Waddy of Washington that the act is "a valid, constitutional exer- cise of the power of Congress to limit the scope of judicial review." The law was challenged by Byron Brown of Phoenix, Ariz, president of Bud Brown Enterprises, who applied for a permit to build a pipeline suspended from an aerial tramway. 'he take the party out while she stayed home. Mills said in his statement that "after a few refreshments, Mrs. Bat- tistella became ill and I enlisted the help of others in our group to assist me in see- ing her safely home." On the way home, with the car being driven by another man, "Mrs. Battistella at- tempted to leave the car and I attempted to prevent Mills said. "In the ensuing struggle, her elbow hit my glasses and broke them, resulting in a number of small cuts around my nose." Asked about those details, Mrs. Battistella said: "I'm not going to say- any damage has been done is enough." Mrs. Battistella said she was a pre-medical in Argentina, and is enrolled in a Washington-area college for the term starting in February to take "general biological sciences." She would not name the college. HAROLD WILLIAM BROWN nnffietiff BROWN.

'The meetings, seven in Southern Alberta through Nov. 29, are designed to ex- plain the position of the con- sultant firm and to allow the public to come up with their own ideas about how land in this province should be used now and in the future. The consultant firm prepared the report, now available for reading at dis- trict agriculturist offices, health and environment agen- cies and other offices dealing with land use, during the first part of 1974. Now the meetings spon- sored by REDA are being held. During the first part of 1975, public hearings will be held to get final indepth information from the public. The Alberta Land Use Forum, beaded by V. A. Wood, R. W. Brown and J. E. Davis, will take the information from the public hearings and the consultant's report to make recommendations to the government regarding land' use in Alberta. The information meetings scheduled for Southern Alberta include tonight p.m. in Claresbobn Provincial Building, Thursday at p.m. in the Brooks Service Centre, Oct. 22 at p.m. in. the Pincher Creek Municipal Building, Oct. 24 at p.m. in the Blairmore Credit Union Office, Oct. 28 at p.m. in the Medicine Hat Provincial Building, and Nov. 7 and at p.m. at the Lethbridge Exhibition Pavilion. The terms of reference dealt with by the consultant firm are: farms; of agricultural land; of agricultural land for recreation; use in and adjacent to urban areas as it affects the cost of housing; land needs for Alberta agriculture; farms, foreign ownership, absentee ownership and communal far- ming; ownership of land, agricultural processing and use as it influences population distribution; extent, if any, to which the historical right of a land owner to determine the use, of agricultural property ought to be restricted. The information- meetings will explain these terms of reference and will seek any other views expressed by the public. Western aid not likely9 DAWSON CREEK, B.C. (CP) Western Canada is not likely to get much from the federal government in the next four Columbia Highways Minister Graham Lea said Sunday. Speaking to a local action group here, Mr. Lea said re- cent million highways development grants from Ot- tawa to the four western provinces were simply not enough in view of the real needs of the west. He said that despite pressure from the western provinces for a new cost- sharing formula, he doesn't expect much action. The political reality is that the Liberal government's voting block is in central Canada. Tire and Auto Centre Fast, sure starts.
