Police traffic Superintendent Doug McRae says unit's mobility has proved great success. Church factions end feud VICTORIA factions in the Society of the Love of Jesus have reached an agreement which has ended a seven-month sit-in by three members at St. Mary's Priory in suburban Colwood. Under the agreement, work- ed out by lawyers for each side. Security guards hired by one side will be withdrawn from most of the priory building they have been oc- cupying on the undertaking of the trio they will not try to enter that area; The three can come and go from the basement kitchen and wing of upstairs rooms they have been occupying since they were locked from the rest of the building March 17, without fear of being lock- ed from that part as well. Still to be resolved in the courts is which of the two fac- tions has the legal right to control the society, with liquid assets estimated at and land said to be worth an additional million. That dis- pute has been continuing for close to 10 years One side in the dispute con- sists of Mother Cecilia Mary, who now operates an animal shelter at Mill Bay but who founded and headed the socie- ty for 30 years, her assistant, Sister Mary Julia Kelly, and the three members who have conducted the sit-in, Sisters Mary Agnes Eaton, Mary Josephine Donovan and Mary Lucy Ford. The other side is headed by Sister Leonette Hoesing, now mother prioress but whose election to that post is being contested in the courts by Mother Cecilia's group. The simmering dispute, termed a struggle between traditional and modern fac- tions, erupted last March into national prominence when the three members returned from church to find themselves barred from the priory where they lived. They climbed in through a back window and refused to leave. Two days later, they said they were invited early in the morning to use the basement kitchen to make themselves coffee and when they did, security guards locked them from the rest of the building. carpenters back on job EDMONTON (CP) More than 60 construction com- panies throughout Alberta and carpenters have ratified a new two-year contract that provides a 32.5-per-cent wage increase over two years.

(AF) Alberta has joined British Columbia and the government of Canada as an exhibitor in Expo '74. The commitment to exhibit at Spokane's world fair was made Tuesday by the Alberta cabinet meeting in Edmonton. "Alberta is, indeed coming to the Peter Horcica said in a telephone interview. Details of the participation still must be worked out but it will be substantial, said Hor- cica, executive assistant to Alberta's minister of industry and commerce. Horst Schmid, Alberta minister of culture, youth and recreation, was named "minister in charge" of Alberta's participation in the environmental fair. The announcement set the stage for what may be greater Canadian participation than originally planned. Canada was the first foreign nation to announce .planned participa- tion but withdrew last summer. Pressure from the western provinces partially resulted in a second decision to participate in a fashion where both the federal government and governments from interested provinces would participate. Horcica said Alberta's peo- ple are "most happy that our province is going to take part in your excellent show." He said the decision reflected the "importance that our citizens and our government place on our relationship with the peo- ple of the northwest." greeted the announcement with one word: Asked to comment further on the implications. Cole said Alberta's participation "real- ly puts us back into the original ballpark of Canadian participation. "We look forward to work- ing with the he said.

The forceful words of the chief were drowned out at times by construction sounds, as a half-dozen Indian workmen repaired Monday Indian chief refuses to resign night's damage to the Caughnawaga Iroquois Coun- cil building where his office is located. About 50 yards away at the RCMP reserve office, four carloads of riot-equipped provincial policemen awaited any developments while others prowled the reserve in marked and unmarked cars and manned roadblocks. The security precautions followed a violent uprising Monday night, attributed to members of the militant Warriors Society, during which three policemen were injured slightly, eight Indians were arrested, and heavy damage was inflicted on police cars and property. The eight Indians were ar- raigned in courts Tuesday on charges of obstructing justice. Tear gas was used to dis- perse a crowd of more than 100 Indians who stormed the police station, and later withdrew when police rein- forcements rushed to the scene. UP TO GOVERNMENT "What am I going to do? I'm going to sit back and let the courts handle Chief Kirby said. He said the federal and pro- vincial governments have guaranteed law and order on the reserve, home to per- sons, located across the St Lawrence River from the southwest section of Montreal Island.
