NEWS FROM THE NORTH - Washington newspapers keep track of happenings in Canada. \ew Typhoon IVloves Toward Philippines From Reuter-AP MANILA (CP) - A new typhoon was reported today heading toward the Philippines, which thi-ee days ago suffered a heavy battering from Typhoon Sening. The government's disaster control centre said more than 300 persons were killed and Motor Car Main Cause Of Pollution CALGAEY (CP) - A report on air pollution in the city says the motor vehicle is thia major cause of pollution and recommends its use be discouraged in tbs downtown section. The city pollution committee said here that higher vehicle taxation, stiff parking rates and improved public transpartation facilities would help overcome the problem. The rep ort said freeways were self-defeating and instead of spending more money on roads, the city should make greater efforts to develop a rapid transit system. To discourage the use of cars downtown, the report recommended: -vehicle taxation based on gas consumption and' six with stiff rates aimed at powerful cars. -higher property taxes on parking lots which offer weekly and monthly rates -increased fines for parking violations -control of exhaust gases on a weight-mile basis -use of vehicle testing centres with the emphasis on ex-haiist and noise control. Denis Fed Up Right To Here With Edna STOCKPORT, England (AP) - Denis Spinks said today three marriages and three divorces with the same woman are enougb-he's not going to try again. "Edna and I are finally fin-iiSied" Spinks, a 50-year-old taxi driver, said. Spinks's history of marital indedsion began in 1942, when he was a gunner in the Royal Artillery and Edna was in the Women's Air Force. They got married. She divorced him for desertion in 1952. They were married again in 1960 and she divorced him- again for desertion-in 1954 The third marriage began in 1966 and ended yesterday. "All I got out of marriage was about �1,000 ($2,500) worth of bills, �600 spent on divorces, �250 for wedding receptions and �40 for three rings" Spinks said. "I'm getting married again but not to Edna," he said. The former Mrs. Spinks, 49, commented: "I wish Denis all the best." thousands made homeless when Sening struck southern and central Luzon Wednesday with winds of 90 miles an hour. The new typhoon, namec". Ti-tang was located today about 600 miles southeast of Manila. Officials said 339 persons were confirmed dead in the provinces of Albany, Camarines Sur and Catanduanes in the first storm. At least 93 others were reported missing. Faitalifcies in other provinces pushed the death toll in the storm that hit Tuesday to more than 360. The Red' Ci-oss had reported earlier that aibout 300,000 people were homeless as a result of the typhoon, which caused damage over a 500-mile-long stretch of the islands. MONTREAL (CP) - Down-tovm Montreal, usually a bustling crossroad for casual stroUers, theatre-goers and night clubbers, prepared for a more sedate weekend. Army troops in full battle dress patrolled key centres in the city and most police activity was restricted to raids on known Front de Liberation du Quebec haunts. There was a notable absence of traffic policemen. Most available men concentrated on findiing the abductors of British envoy James (Jasper) Cross and Quebec Labor Minister Pierre La-porte. One theatre manager Friday night described the city as gloomy, tense and apprehensive. "Business is down all over the place," said Bert Kidger, manager of Loews Theatre. "The housewife is worried. She doesn't want to go out to the movies or any where else, she wants to stay In and listen to the news." PUBLIC RELIEVED Social, worker (3�oi-ge Du-plessis said: "I don't .think the public's really worried about the army coming in. It's something that should have happened a while back. The pubUc is more relieved-relieved to know there is that much help at hand. One person not happy with the police activity is Cecile Pacquette whose small confectionary store was mistakenly raided minutes after Prime Minister Trudeau's War Measures Act became effective. She said she was asleep at 4:30 a.m. Friday when two provincial policemen and two plainclothes officers raided tlie store. "It was a big shock at that time of the night, wlien you're awakened," she said. She said the police apologized for tlie intrusion. "I suppose evei7one can make a mistake." CLOSE UNIVERSITY About 100 students occupied the administrative offices of the Montreal campu-S of the University of Quebec Friday, forcing officials to close the institution until further notice. At Mc(}ill, about 300 students gathered for a rally in support of the FLQ outside the arts faculty building. Rose Trepainier, 26-year-old newlywed, said "people are very nervous." "I'm nervous. The radio and TV make me nervous. Every time I watch, I start thinking to myself 'what's going to happen'." New Canadian Chris Psom-iadis said he was used to trou- ble. He had served with the Greek merchant navy, experienced the Greek civil war in the late 1940s and immigrated to Canada after the 1965 uprising. "Now look what I've come in to," he said. "To me, its another terrorist uprising. The characteristics are similar to those in Greece where trouble started in just the same way with a few radical guys spoiling it for the masses."
