"He's a real nice guy and he wanted to work under cover." About 250 friends of Howard Green paid tribute in Ottawa to the former external affairs min- ister at a parliamentary dinner. The tributes came from politi- cal allies in the Progressive Conservative party and one- time debating foes in Liberal ranks. The dinner for Mr. Green, who will be 76 next month, was held in the ornate Confedera- tion Room of Parliament's West Block. He was invited from his home in Vancouver. Gerald J.

Daniel Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon papers and now faces jail for doing it, said in Philadelphia that newspapers which printed the government secrets "did very well for the by protecting the right of the people to know what is happening behind the scenes in government. One newspaper editor, how- ever, disagreed sharply with some of his colleagues in a dis- cussion on the controversial publications at the annual meeting of the Associates Press Managing Editors Association. Martin Ilayden, editor of the Detroit News, said he believed the publication of the Pentagon Papers, even though upheld by the Supreme Court, could lead Congress to pass stronger laws "to regulate or control the p r c s s." He added he was "scared to death" of such a pos- sibility. "We don't have a licence to print everything that we can get our hands Hayden said.

He Plant gets green light RED DEER Co. of Canada Ltd. has re- ceived permission to increase the capacity of its new Ram River processing plant to 382 million cubic feet of natural gas a day from 220 million. The approval came in a de- cision by the Energy Resources Conservation Board which con- ducted a hearing Aug. 19 on the company's application. The increase is scheduled to be completed within 12 months, the company said. Conservationists had opposed the production increase, saying the increased emission of sul- phur dioxide from the plant 75 miles west of Red Deer would threaten the ecology of the area. The energy board ordered ex- tra equipment to lie installed at the plant to monitor emissions. It did not order any reduction in the proposed rate of emis- sion of sulphur dioxide. drugs by as much as 50 per cent. "Any program Mr. Chartier emphasized, "would be done in a fashion that is acceptable to all-manu- facturers, pharmacists and the public." He warned that "unless phar- macists stop hiding behind thn skirts of manufacturers" the Manitoba government may havs to intervene to set prices in ac- cord with the province's work- ing population. "The pharmacists in Mani- toba have no one to blame for their plight but themselves." Until now, he said, pharma- cists in his province have been "more preoccupied with the commercial side of the profes- sion than with assuming their responsibilities as partners in a health cere delivery system to the population."

Phone 327-5763 OTTAWA (CP) Premier Alexei Kosygin of the Soviet Union said Wednesday Canada will "always have a friend in the hut he added that this friendship should not threaten any other country, in- cluding the United Stales. At a news conference on the last day of his three-day visit to Ottawa, Mr. Kosygin was asked whelher Canada and Russia sign a mutual assistance act. The question was based on a remark by Prime Minister Tru- deau earlier this week that Can- ada would like to look both north and south and see friends in cither direction. Canada al- ready has co-operative defence arrangements with the U.S. "f would not like to go into replied the premier, adding, however, (hat in the Canada will always have a a reference :o the Soviet Russia would always do its best to see .hat this remains true. This, Mr. Kosygin said, meets vith the wishes of the Soviet and Canadian people. Canadian-Soviet friendship in .he North should threaten no one, "either in the south or any other an apparent reference to the U.S. and other countries. The Sonet Union has stoutly supported C a n a d a 's decision wo years ago to draw a 100- mile-wide pollution control zone around the Canadian Arctic ar- chipelago. The U.S. and a number of ither states have denounced it. At the same time, Mr. Kosy- gin rejected the idea of a multi- ateral treaty to write interna- ional law on navigation safely i and pollution control in the Arc- tic. Problems of the area should be resolved bilaterally by the Soviet Union and Canada. Why I should a country like Portugal have anything to say about it? The idea of an international regime for the North has been frequently advanced by Prime Minister Trudcau, who unsuc- cessfully sought Premier Kosy- gin's support for it in talks here this week and in Moscow five months ago. Canada has been working with the U.S. in refining the idea. The news conference was the next-to-last official event of Mr Kosygin's busy Ottawa tiner- ary. Wednesday evening he at- tended a lavish reception given by Soviet Ambassador Boris Mi- roshnichenko. Today, he was to leave for Montreal to begin a five-day, trans-Canada tour. Earlier in the day the 67- year-old premier held a two- hour, give-and-take bull session with the Commons external af- fairs committee and the Senate foreign affairs committee. Then he aliened a working lunch with Mr. Trudeau and after that, watched the House of Commons in action from a seat in the Speaker's gallery. At the meeting with MPs, as at the later press conference, he came on strong in favor of the Soviet-proposed European secu- rity conference, which Canada and the U.S. would attend along with countries of Europe. He even asked the legislators to "put some pressure on my friend Trudeau" to use his influ- ence in the Western alliance to help bring about such a confer- ence. NATO has said that the Berlin problem must be retvlved be-! fore active plans for a plenary j security conference can be pro- i cecdcd with. Mr. Trudeau, at his lunch with Mr. Kosygin, raised the delicate question of reunifica- tion of families, and treatment of minority groups and dissident intellectuals in the Soviet Union. Mr. Kosygin promised that consideration would be given to the cases of individuals wishing i believed to be imprisoned in the to leave the Soviet Union, whoso' Soviet Union. However, he un- names were contained in a list submitted to Moscow this sum- mer by the Canadian govern- ment. Canada submitted the list as dertook to have Mr. Moroz's case re-examined. Mr. Trudcau had promised to make a plea on behalf of I ho jailed man after he met with a an outgrowth of a personal hu- j Sroup called Ihe Set Them Free manitarian plea made by Mr. Committee in Winnipeg earlier Trudeau to Mr. Kosyg n in Mos- j 'nis month, cow in May. Those on the list want to leave the Soviet Union and join families now in Can- ada. Mr. Kosygin said he was not familiar with the name of Val- entin Moroz, a Ukrianian writer Tlie Canadian prime minister drew attention to concern in Canada that Soviet Jews are not allowed sufficient freedom to emigrate. Mr. Kosygin said 500 Soviet Jews have applied to emigrate to Canada and their applications are being processed. Former mayor pleads guilty MONTREAL (CP) Maurice Bergeron, former mayor of the Montreal suburb of St. Michel, pleaded guilty here to seven charges alleging municipal cor- ruption. Bergeron, appearing before Sessions Court Judge Andre Fa- bien, said he received kickbacks of in awarding a con- tract for the construction of an arena. The former mayor also admit- ted receiving remuneration for issuing a social club licence to a veteran'.-, association and ac- cepting from the city's police union for a favorable con- tract. In pleading guilty, Bergeron said he acquired smaller amounts, such as on three occasions, when he had a rookio policeman reinstated on the force.
