The inquiry which openec late in September with sevei days' of hearing, resumed Wee nesday with an investigation o political intcrfer e n c e in tin execution of police duties.

Canadian Students To Resume Sit-in PARIS group of about 70 Canadian students who planned to resume a sit-in at a student residence called off their plans Tuesday after a larger group of residents told them they would resist the ac- tion. The occupiers, who staged a three-day sit-in earlier to pro- test the Canadian government's application of the War Measures Act, dispersed after being told by a spokesman for 120 resi- dents of the Canadian students' residence that they would not allow another occupation. The first sit-in, which began Saturday, ended Monday night after French authorities threat- ened to evict the students with the help of Parisian police. Benoit Vaillancour, director of the students residence, said in an interview today the students gave in to French authorities Monday "saying that their free- dom was more important than their imprisonment to the Front de Liberation du Quebec cause." The sit-in was decided upon a a meeting last week of abou 200 Quebec students. Vaillancour said the numbei of students taking part ranged between 60 and 75 when the sit in was at its peak, and later dwindled to about 15. A total of about Canadi ans are studying in France.

NO RESPONSE Mr. Mclvor told Mr. Justice Morrow of the Northwest Terri- tories' Court that at one stage as police chief he wrote a let- ter to the City Transit Commis- sion suggesting suspected thieves in the system be charg- ed by police. The police, ho R.iid, were .sat- isfied there was enough evi- dence to support criminal charges but he received no re- sponse to the letter. It was prompted he said, be- cause police had previously re- ceived directives not to prose- cute Calgary Transit System personnel suspected of theft. "I felt this was unfair be- cause a policeman in similar circumstances must be charged under a city bylaw. This was an abuse of the due process of law." DOUBLE STANDARD j Mr. Mclvor also told of an in-1 cident in which two city police men each were fined fo converting whisky taken froir prisoner to their own use. The fine was levied as.a disciplin ary measure by the police com mission. "I resented the double stan dard as did my men. I resente< having it instituted into a bylaw Which applied only to police- men." The commission was origin ated in 1933 to take police mat ters out of the realm of civic politics. Mr. Mclvor testified. Eventually one alderman was added, then two then three, un til the value of the commission was lost.

He said he had the preroga tive to go over the heads of city lall officials but said the prac :ice had always been to leave the decision whether to prose- cute to the complainant.

Mark Tennant, recalled o the witness stand Wednesday said he didn't think thefts at the ransit system came under the urisdiction of the transit com- mittee of which he was chair- man. We didn't think the transit committee was put there as de- ectives we were asked to try and get the CTS out of the ut of poor service to try and educe the operating deficit, nd tilings like this. "I didn't think it was my po- ition to instruct the chief of po- ice in his duties. Surely, the hief of police doesn't expect an lected alderman to instruct lim in his duties." Following Mr. Tennant's tes- .imony, Judge Morrow said he 'as getting a picture of a com- munications gap between city all and the police department The hearing continues.
