Waterton., Glacier Parks Spraying Ban Supported WEST GLACIER, Mont. (AP) Secretary of the interior Walter J. Hickel has come out in support of the Glacier Na- tional Park administration in its effort to ban the use of herbicides in marking bound- aries between the park and TORONTO (CP) Ten years ago today John Ellwood of Toronto carried the ball for North Toronto Collegiate in a football game against Jarvis Collegiate. After the play he com- plained of a headache and col- lapsed on the bench. He has been unconscious since. John, 19, and a Grade 13 student at the time, remains in a coma at Queen Elizabeth Hospital. Hospital officials describe his condition as stationary. But his parents, Salvation Army Lt.-Cpl: Thomas Ell- wood and his wife, have not given up hope. "From a medical stand- point, doctors tell us there is little or no said Col. Ellwood. "But you can never tell." "We are Christians and we leave John in the Lord's hands. lie will do what is best."

Rogers asking that the International Boundary Commission stop the use of herbicides in marking the boun- dary. Hickel said, "It was the in- tent of the helicopter spraying Tordon 101 ,to defoliate a swath of 10 feet wide on either side of the boundary. However, drift of, the chemi- cal caused considerable defoli- ation, trej mortality and de- formities far outside the plan- ned width." He concluded, "In the inter- est of preserving the integrity of the Waterton Glacier Inter- national Peace Park, and as a positive gesture of confidence and good will, it is respectfully requested that the International National Boundary Commission i cease and desist "from the use of herbicides within the peace park."

Kent told rublic inquiry here that com munications between his fore and its governing committee lave been "completely bra en." He said he was not pleasec with the way Mayor Rod Syke iscussed police matters pub cly without consulting thi hief or senior members of thi orce. "If his worship would consul he police instead of forming lis own ideas and conveyini iem to the press." ilORALE LOW Morale among police is ex remely low, the chief said mostly because of actions b; le police commission. "Every complaint is turne( ver to the police commission there is no court, no forma charge the men feel they nust have a lawyer at ever; olice commission meeting." Many of the complaints deal with by the commission were rivial and could have been re- olved internally. During commission meetings olice "have been referred to y the mayor as fuzz and as oddamn cops by Aid. (John) ushner." Chief Kent was testifying he- re Mr. Justice W. G. Mor- row who is conducting an in- uiry into possible civic mis- anagement during the last 10 ears and concentrating now on oMcal interference in police uties. He said he had misgivings appearing at the inquiry nd .answering questions frank- because of possible reper- ussions. Commission counsel Ronald euman explained that Chief ent was reticent about ex- essing disloyalty to the ayor or the police commis- n. 'He is not afraid to say what on his mind privately to ose involved, but is reluctant make the same statements blicly." ILD TO ANSWER rusfice Morrow said he has ined the impression that poor mmunications exist between e various civic departments d requested the chief to an- er so problems could be un- rstood and improvements ;gested. 'As to repercussions, I am ire the people will not allow e police or any other depart- ent to be hurt. 'I am certain the mayor will allow it." chief said lie was op- rased to a proposal to hold po- lice commission hearings in the public forum of the city coun- cil chambers. If the commission meeting were public, police would ef- fectively be "thrown to the wolves." 'I suspect there is some polit- ical reason for holding police commission hearings at city hall. "There is something wrong and I just can't explain it." Chief Kent said he once of- fered his resignation because he felt he had lost the confi- dence of the police commis- sion, but they refused to accept. The police commission has six members, including the mayor, three aldermen, an at- :orney and a private citizen. The inquiry continues. Notley Praises Govt. Action CALGARY (CP) The cre- ation of a provincial depart- ment of environmental man- agement received tentative support today from New Dem- ocratic Party leader Grant Not- y. Establishment of the depart- nent is commendable, he said in an interview, "however, we must not assume that setting up of the department itself is a solution." "It will have to be watched larefully to make sure that it toes something. 'We must make sure pollu- tion control is high on the genda for action and not just or rhetoric." The NDP leader did not dis- ute the province's contention hat it had the best pollution- record in Canada, but aid "the best of nothing is still ot much." Premier Harry Strom an- ounced earlier formation of le department of environmen- al management which will co- rdinate ail aspects of pollu- on control and resource de- elopment.
