Nixon characterized Hie voles as an invilalion lo a tax increase. In both houses of Congress, tl-e vole to override Nixon's veto of the anti-pollution bill was much greaie- than Ihe nec- essary two-thuds majority. The Senate vole was 52 to the House 2-17 to 23. ACCUSE NIXON Democrats said (lie president exasperated the cost of the clean-water bill, that tic has re- peatedly vetoed funds urgently needed for education, health and olher programs treating so- cial ills, and lhat he has [x-o- tected Iho defence budget from their effort to pare what they call wasteful spending. Nixon's only major domestic legislation to survive Congress was the ?30.Z-billion revenue- Bharing bill wliich he plans to sign Friday. The legislation provides fed- eral grants lo state and local governments during a five-year period.

But at some points, the royal tourists ran up lo half an hour late. Yugoslav President Tito stayed in the background whilo the visitors crammed in seven separate visits before lunch. After staying up ntilil midnight Tuesday night at a Male recep- tion, the Queen was out at 10 a.m. to help plant a Douglas spruce Irce in Belgrade's Park of Friendship.

Last February, blackouts were introduced during a coal miners' strike to conserve scarce fuel. In December, 1970, electricity cuts also were used during a strike by tlie powe: workers. AS SETBACK The unions' current 37-per- cent wage claim is a major set- bark for Prime Minister Ed- ward Heath's efforts to pro- mote voluntary restraints on prices and incomes. Heath, in discussions with na- tional industrial and union lead- ers, is trying lo get agreement to keep wage increases down to a maximum of about weekly and price increases lo less than five per cent for a year. Wednesday, the government announced that (he official in- dex of weekly basic wage rates for manual workers stood 1G.7 per cent above lire level of year ago. Price increases, in most cases somewhat above the es- calation m wages, also have picked up added momentum in recent weeks. Meanwhile, "Vic Feather, head of the 10-million slronp Trades Union Congress, saic Wednesday that unless his or- ganiznlion shows some in- dication of co-operating will Heath, the prime minister may call a snap election and in troduce compulsory restraints. icn was greeted by a checr- ul group of students and crowd, applauding outside.

MONT GABRIEL, Que. (CP) The pace of development in the North should be careful and controlled but It should not be stopped altogether. Dr. 0. M. Solandt saici Wednesday. Dr. Solandt is chairman o[ a special science confer- ence for the federal govern- ment. Speaking at the conclusion of [he four-day meeting of 100 Lop- level industry, government and university scientists, Dr. Solandt said the question of the rate of development in the North had not been resolved at meeting. The views ranged from those who wanted complete stoppage of energy development to those who wanted present resources used immediately before new energy sources were developed, he said. "I favor a middle course. The world is preparing lo face Ihe fact lhat we can't continue to grow at Ihe present rate." REPORTS PREPARED The scientists met In six groups during the four days to discuss research and science activities pertaining to northern natives, environment, renew- sources, technology Hnd inter- national research. During Wednesday's final sessions, reports advising on activities vrere submitted from the six groups. These will he combined and submitted lo the cabinet. In his summary, Dr. Solandt said the groups apparently had reached agreement on two ma- jor areas, One was the need to involve Indians and Eskimos in all phases of northern develop- ment. The conference also had agreed on the need for a data hank where information about the North would be collected and kept for use. This inflation centre was rec- ommended by several groups, especially (lie work group on leclmology. Chairman Dr. R. F.
