X THI LETHBRIDGt HERALD _ Monday, 36, True Quebec Democracy Need Stressed By Singer MONTREAL (CP) Pauline Julien, well-known French-Ca- nadian popular singer who spent eight days in jail under terms of the War Measures Act, says she is "more convinced than ever of the necessity of establishing true democracy in She said in an interview Sun- day that when she was released from jail she discovered that her son Nicolas, 15, daughter Pascale, 18, three of their teen- age friends and Miss Julien's sister Fabienne had been ar- rested last Friday. "The terrible thing is that all of us were arrested for no ap- parent reason. No charges were j laid and we were not allowed to contact a lawyer or call rela- tives or friends." Miss Julien said her children, then- friends and her sister were released after 24 hours. She named two of the friends as the teen-age children of actor Lionel Villeneuve and Helene Loisel. "In my own case, I was ar- rested at 4 a.m. a week ago last Friday in the apartment which I rent by a detachment of both city and provincial police, who even told me that they had not come for me, but for a friend who lives with me. "I just happened to be there at the time, so they arrested me along with my friend. "The ease of my sister and (he children and their friends is even worse. My sister was at the house to make sure the chil- dren were comfortable and had enough money. She had been in .the house only five minutes be- fore police arrived. "I heard similar stories to my own among the other 36 women held at Tanguay (women's jail) with me. I would say three- quarters of them had no politi- cal links and were either the wives or friends of men sought under the act, or more visitors at the time of their arrests." She said one woman, from Ste. Therese, "was forced to abandon her four children, aged 9 to 15 years, and held for a week." "Police had gone to her house to search for her husband, but he was away at the time, so they arrested her instead." TREATED WELL Miss Julien .said she and the other women were well treated during their stay at Tanguay where, she says, about a dozen women are still held under the act. They had a common room where they ate and1 where, ac- cording to other sources, Miss Julien kept up morale with her singing. She said that during her de- tention she was questioned for only five minutes, sltortly after her arrival at the prison. Her only contact with the outside world was through the director of the .prison, who telephoned her family on her behalf. Miss Julien is reported to have refused lo sing before Queen Elizabeth during a royal visit to Canada in 1964. Last year, at a French-lan- guage cultural conference in Niamey, Niger, she is reported to have shouted "vive le Quebec libre" at State Secretary Ger- ard Pelletier.

Plan Study- On Traffic Problems CALGARY (CP) The city may soon undertake a cost- benefit study to determine whether expressways or better public transport will solve Cal- gary's growing traffic prob- lems, Mayor Rod Sykes said Sunday. Provincial Highways Minis- ter Gordon Taylor has agreed to help finance the study, the mayor said, and will support a Calgary application to the fed- eral government for additional oid. Emphasis'of the study would be on improving public transit as an alternative to the present system of major roads and throughfares. A transit system will always lose money, the mayor said in a broadcast on station CIIQR, but it is essential taxpayers get a rcasonnble return for the amount spent. The mayor said the study would also consider the cost of repairing any environmental damage caused by the present expressway system.

(CP) The Canadian Police Associa- ban, adopted resolution during the weekend supporting the fed- eral government's implementa- tion of the War Measures Act.

Guy Marcial, president of the Montreal Police Brotherhood, said in an interview that if po- lice had been given more 'free- dom to act six or seven years ago the crisis might never have arisen. Prior to the kidnapping of British diplomat James Cross, he said, police couldn't even put their hands on their guns with- out risking a charge. The association asks in its resolution for legislation to af- ford police the opportunity and effective power of preventing terrorist activities advocating violent overthrow of federal or provincial governments in the future. The resolution is to be forwarded to Prime Minister Trudeau and Justice Minister John Turner. Major Pollution Danger Fades SOUTHAMPTON, England (Reuter) Salvage tugs began juggling the stricken tanker Pa- cific Glory today to prevent its disgorging tons of oil cargo on to beaches and har- bors alont" the south England coast.
