B.C. orders freeze on Indian adoption VICTORIA (CP) Human Resources Minister Norman Levi has announced he has ordered a freeze on the adop- tion of native Indian children by white parents while a welter of legal and social problems associated with cross-culture adoptions are studied. The minister was responding to claims that adopted Indian children are still in danger of losing their status under existing adoption laws, and that the provincial government should encourage the adoption of Indian children by Indian families, perhaps through a subsidy. Mr. Levi also told a news conference that B.C 's superintendent of child welfare is appealing a court decision of Victoria Judge M. L. Drake which blocked a cross-culture adoption because the judge felt the child wouldn't be protected. The ruling left 65 adoption proceedings "in Mr. Levi said. The minister also said the government will soon set up a royal commission on family law which will look into the whole question of adoptions. LEGISLATION The issue of Indian adop- tions began with the introduc- tion at the current session of legislation which sought to make sure the "status, rights. privileges, disabilities and limitations" of an Indian un- der federal law are not affected by the B C. Adoption Act. The bill was immediately attacked by Indian spokesman Philip Paul who complained that the status of an adopted Indian was still in jeopardy and that Mr. Levi did not con- sult with the Indian communi- ty before drafting the bill In a letter to Mr. Levi released Monday, Mr Paul, research director for the Union of B C. Indian Chiefs, said "No province, including British Columbia, ensures that the (adopted) child is notified that it is of Indian status. "If the child remains ig- norant of that information, property rights are lost, access to special federal ser- vices is lost and Indian status to which the child's children or female spouse are entitled, is lost." Mr. Paul recommended several additions to provincial laws. That the federal government, the adoptive parents and the Indian band be provided with all informa- tion as to the adopted child's status and band memberhip; the child himself be informed of his rights at age 21; That a preference be given to placing Indian children in Indian homes, or that the adoptive parents "be sensitive to any special problems that the child may face." Mr Levi refused to say whether the Indian adoption bill currently before the house would be changed or withdrawn. Product standard improvement sought By PETER MICHAELSON OTTAWA (CP) A utility plug failed recently in Dr. P. D McTaggart-Cowan's Canadian-made electric stove and nearly set his house on fire. His wife recently purchased bedsheets imported from France and they were later found to be flawed by unfinish- ed seams. The case of the malfunction- ing stove indicates Canadian manufacturing standards still are not adequately protecting consumers from shoddy, domestically produced merchandise, Dr. McTaggart- Cowan, executive director of the Science Council of Canada, said this week. He said the fbwed French bedsheets supported his view that foreign imports should meet Canadian manufactur- ing standards.

But this increased the weight of cars, making them more lethal on impact and also requiring more fuel to operate it. The automobile industry. and other industries that fail to conserve energy and resources, are not to blame, Dr. McTaggart-Cowan said. They were following govern- ment guides drafted by ex- perts on standards. It is these experts who have to guide industry toward better conservation practice, he said. An example of good conser- vation was home insulating. The cost might be several hundred dollars, but the reduction in fuel consumption made up in a few years for the expense.

By GERALD CLARK Special to The Herald TEL AVIV In the tenth day of war the morale of Israelis remains high, without any slack in a certainty that they will win it. But grave questions push foward How long will it take? What will be the price? And why were the Arabs allowed to seize the initiative? The last question, asked incessant- ly and in a., anguished sense of postmortem even while the battle itself goes on, in- dicates, if not precisely dis- satisfaction with the military leadership, at least of feeling that Israeli generals are falli- ble after all. So'much of the image of the superman, of invincibility, had been built up since the quick victory of 1967 that Israelis are stunned that they could have been caught short. Courage and stamina remain intact. But their greatest weapon self confidence betrayed them, and that is perhaps the bitterest point so far about this war. There is not much criticism over the cabinet's agreement to refrain from a preventive or pre-emptive strike on the basis of intelligence reports of an Arab buildup. For one thing, false alarms were commonplace in the past. But there is little doubt that this time the scope of the Egyptian and Syrian prepara- tion was misinterpreted. In any event, Israelis accept Prime Minister Golda Meir's public admission over the weekend that the decision not to strike first, as in 1967, was a political one to avoid world condemnation But, if this much is understood by the average Israeli, there is less patience with the next phase. It became apparent only hours before the actual attack that the Arabs were getting into position in earnest. It was insufficient time to call up more than first priority reser- vists, but ample time to warn regulars who were holding positions along the Suez Canal and in the Golan Heights. At 2 p.m. on Yom Kippur, on two separate fronts, the Egyp- tians and Syrians made their co-ordinated assault. Why were some Israeli soldiers on the Suez line hav- ing afternoon naps? Why were some on the Golan Heights taking showers? These are nagging questions, asked with increasing dismay as the stones get about Either a proper alert was not given a failure of Israeli command or the troops were too sure of themselves. They could deal easily with Arabs. "This cockiness may be un- derstandable in an 18-year- says a veteran of the last three wars. "But it is inex- cusable in older, supposedly mature men who direct the strategy." But then, he added sadly, men like Dayan, the defence minister, and Elazar, the chief of staff, belong to the cocky school. The simple fact is that Israel's generals, who had a reputation for un- orthodoxy, have turned out to be much like generals anywhere and at almost any stage m history They allowed this war to start where the last one left off. They thought that any Arab attack would conform to the old pattern, that it would be preceded by a long artillery barrage, perhaps of 24 hours duration, giving Israel time to bring up reserves in numbers. The Bar-Lev line, a series of Israeli dugouts and bunkers, was good against artillery bursts, something like a mod'est Middle East version of the Maginot line. Besides, the Suez Canal offered a natural barrier of water, one of the best- defences against infantry and tanks. But the Egyptians did not signal their intention with heavy shelling. Instead, they came across the canal, in full daylight, in amphibian tanks and rubber dinghies, so swift- ly and with such skill of in- filtration that one Israeli lieutenant admitted later that he was not sure whether the men approaching his outpost from the rear were Israeli or reinforcements of Egyptians. They turned out to be Egyp- tians, and he and a few of his men survived, after intensive GRACIOUS Git I ASHFORD.

The Egyptians fought with courage and ingenuity, and undoubtedly they along with the Syrians learned meaningful lessons in the last six years while the Israelis appear to have stood still. None of this, of course, affects the long-range prognesis. If there is a feeling of sadness and chargrin.there is none of gloom. Essentially what the Israelis have going for them is motivation They repeat over and over again, to remind every visitor, that while the Arabs can afford to lose war after war, for Israel one war lost would be the last war. The news this week is highly favorable, despite the entry of Jordanian troops dt the side of the besieged Syrians. Israeli troops are close to Damascus, and they have successfully fought back a major Egyptian attack all along the Suez front The decisive battle there is yet to come, but few here doubt its results.
