Free fluoride pills plan considered CALGARY (CP) The Cal- gary Pharmaceutical Society is to consider free distribution of fluoride pills following defeat Wednesday of a plebiscite on fluoridation of the city's water supply. Gordon Hinker, society presi- dent, said he will ask the mem- bers to endorse a letter outlin- ing the suggestion to Health Minister Neil Crawford. The fluoridation question was defeated by voters in 1966 and 1969 and after each rejection the society made the offer, he said, "but never received any reply from the provincial gov- ernment." "All I will ask the society to do is re-affirm the offer. May- be the new government will be more responsive." The pills now are distributed free of charge through city health clinics but some sup- porters of fluoridation say there should be more outlets, such as through drugstores.

Countries grapple Volv" ailto with moncv crisis PARIS (Reuter) Officials from the richest non-Communist countries in the world meet today in an attempt to plan con- crete action for an assault on the international monetary cri- sis. Monetary sources in Paris were cautiously optimistic that some progress would be made on appropriate realignment of currencies to solve the U.S. bal- ance-of-payments deficit. The officials, from finance ministries and central banks of Canada, the United States, Brit- ain, Japan, Sweden, Switzer- land, The Netherlands, France, Italy, West Germany and Bel- gium, hope to obtain removal of the US. 10-per-cent import sur- charge imposed last Aug. 15. The three-day talks, which are to prepare for a meeting of finance ministers of the Group of Ten wealthiest nations in mid-November, are the first lop-level financial gathering since the International Mone- tary Fund annual meeting in Washington at the end of last month. At the IMF meeting, Treasury Secretary John Connally indi- cated that the surcharge might be lifted if other countries gave assurances that they would re- move specific trade barriers and allow their currencies to find Uieir own levels. But monetary sources in Paris said fears of possible 12- cession has led, if anything, to increased tr a d e obstructions and free appreciation of curren- cies against the floating U.S'. dollar. checked Livestock report Lethbridqe Livestock Ilo 43- Good 5lock 3 to 36.50.

WASHINGTON (AP) Ralph Nader's centre for auto safety says the U.S. transportation de- partment is looking into com- plaints of jammed accelerators on Swedish-built Volvo cars. One Volvo owner told report- ers at a press conference his ac- celerator became jammed open on two different trips while the car was travelling at high speed. He said he escaped a dis- astrous crash each time by heavy application of Uie brakes. Lowell Dodge, director of the j centre for auto safety, and other j consumer advocates met with Volvo officials Friday to discuss points in a Sept. 3 letter from Dodge lo the Volvo organization detailing what he described as numerous owner complaints. At a joint news conference with the Volvo officials after the meeting, Dodge said his group learned for the first time that Volvo quietly has granted some i extensions of its six-month war- ranty, but without general no- tice lo the public. Dodge said warranty exten- i sions were granted in instances I where windows had fallen out, j brakes had been defective, or motors for windshield washers and wipers had failed- Dodge said Volvo should have notified the car owners- rather than merely its dealers, of the warranty extensions so that they would bring vehicles in for free service rather than taking them to other non-Volvo repair stations. Dodge said the centre had asked Volvo to provide it in the future with copies of service bulletins to dealers, particularly those referring to warranty ex- tensions. The Volvo representa- tives said they would consider the request, and would look into the problems involving jammed accelerators and brake failures.
