Economic Problems Not Reasons For FLQ Crisis MEDICINE HAT (CP) The federal government does not ac- cept the argument that social and economic problems are re- sponsible for the terrorist crisis' in Quebec, Agriculture Minister H. A. (Bud) Olson said Monday night. "The FLQ is being supported by people who are not in a diffi- More Sweepstakes Expected In 1971 EDMONTON (CP) More sweepstakes can be expected next year under relaxed lottery regulations, Attorney General Edgar Gerhart.said Monday. Mr. Gerhart said in an inter- Pincher Creek Man Killed In Plant Accident Kenneth Wayne 22, son of Mr. and Mrs. David Bowers of Pincher Creek, was killed Monday when he was caught in a conveyer belt at the Shell gas processing plant, 18 .miles southwest of Pincher Creek. Mr. Bowers died about p.m. after being taken to St. Vincent's Hospital in Pincher Creek. Coroner Dr. Murray Hodgson oC Pincher Creek has ordered an inquest but no date has been set. HALE OPTICAL j j COMPANY ITD. iff Gary Dispensing Optician 307 St. S. 327.7152 view he expects sweepstakes to be extended, under regula- tions to be approved by the cabinet in 1971, to smaller race tracks that have pan mutuel facilities. The regulations .would be "very, very sparse" to give a broad scope to sweepstake pro- motors. "We don't want a catalogue type of regulation with every conceivable type of sweepstake or lottery the minis- ter said. "We want to leave the ideas up to the promoting organizations." Asked whether sweepstakes would be restricted to horse races, Mr. Gerbart recalled that during Edmonton's Klon- dike Days sweepstakes were held on a raft race. "What we want to prevent is somebody in say, Hinton, hold- ing a sweepstakes on a horse race out of the province over which they have no control." There would be no objection to a small centre holding a sweepstake on its own dog team or snowmobile race. The regulations planned will set limits on the profits that can be made by sponsoring organizations, he said. The limits would set the number of tickets, amount of prizes and the profits that could be deducted by the orga- nizers. SOCIAL CREDIT Annual Meeting HONORABLE F. C. COLBORNE Minister of Municipal Affairs Will Speak Wednesday, October 28th p.m. ALLAN WATSON SCHOOL 21st STREET AND 6th AVENUE SOUTH EAST AND WEST LETHBRIDGE CONSTITUENCIES ELECTION OF OFFICERS DELEGATES TO THE ANNUAL PROVINCIAL CONVENTION MEMBERSHIPS AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR Tliii advertisement, inserted by: Lelhbridne Social Credit Constituency Association, 2013 5th Avonuo South cult economic he said in a television interview. "They are people a long way up on the economic ladder." "The FLQ is Just using eco- nomic problems as an excuse to depose democratic 'govern- ment." In answer to a question, Mr. Olson said there Is no evidence that Communists are backing the Front de Liberation du Quebec. "There are of course some suspicions and no doubt there are some international implica- tions with other countries maybe not with Russia and China directly." HOPES FOR DETAILS Referring to secrecy sur- rounding the reason for the gov- ernment's invoking the War Measurees Act, Mr. Olson said he hopes the government will reveal whatever details it can as soon as possible. "I don't think the time will ever come when we will be able to introduce documented evi- dence on all the details of a planned insurrection. These types of organizations don't draw up documents outlining their plans, and if they did.they would be destroyed if there was ever any chance we could cap- ture them." Mr. Olson criticized some sec- tors of the news media for their handling of the Quebec crisis. He said some news outlets handled the FLQ story responsi- bly but "some radio commenta- tors and others handled it irre- sponsibly." Government Pollution Bill Receives Second Reading OTTAWA (CP) Transport Minister Don Jamiespn an- sneied pollution hawks Monday as the Commons gave second leading to a bill which gives the government sweeping powers to control oil tankers in Canadian waters. Ending five hours of debate on the bill, Mr. Jamieson con- ceded there was a general feel- ing it does not go far enough. "In ideal terms, perhaps, var- ious parts of the measure should be be said. But, he added, some MPs have already supplied the cor- rect answer to the charge in that "we have gone further uni- laterally in this particular area than any other country on the face of the earth." "What we have done is to stretch our jurisdiction to the absolute maximum." The bill, which amends the Canada Shipping Act, imposes anti-pollution controls on all tankers entering. Canadian fish- ing jurisdiction, going beyond. territorial-water limits but much less than the 100-mile anti-pollution zones established by legislation last spring for the Canadian Arctic. Offering reasons for the more limited approach in his bill, Mr. Jamieson said circumstances-in the North are different and the same powers are not required. "If we were to extend the so- called pollution zones 100 miles to sea off, for example, the East Coast, it would be tremendously difficult for us to try to investi- gate which vessels, among the enormous amount of shipping in that region, were heading for Canadian The minister offered, how- ever, to consider any sugges- tions to strengthen the bfll in the special Commons committee on environmental pollution which now will study the mea- sure. Opposition speakers continued to give the.bill their general approval but they were also ready, with numerous sugges- tions for more effective pollu- tion control. Lloyd Crouse (PC-South Shore) advocated creation of an International pollution control commission to deal with joint U.S.-Canadian pollution issues. Mr. Crouse said the Shipping Act amendments are weak in B.C. Ignored Warning On Teacher Declaration VICTORIA general Leslie Peterson said Monday the British Columbia government issued a declara- tion last week that teachers be fired for advocating violent political action, despite a warn- ing from the federal govern- ment. Mr. Peterson said Justice Minister John Turner had told him.that any extension of the War Measures Act to activities beyond those of the Front De Liberation Du Quebec "might be harmful." Bespite the warning, Mr.. Peterson said, the cabinet is- sued the order-in-council mak- ing teachers at government- supported schools and universi- ties liable for dismissal.if they support the FLQ.or the over- throw of democratically elect- ed governments by force. Mr. Peterson was comment- ing prior to a cabinet meeting, on Mr. Turner's statement in the' House of Commons Mon- day that he had warned the attorney-general. Earlier, Mr. Peterson said the cabinet order is related to the war measures act but de- clined to say whether .the pro- vincial order would be rescind- Strom Sees Trade Hike With Japan CALGARY (CP) Trade be- tween Alberta and Japan will increase in the future, Premier Harry Strom said Monday. The premier said that when he was in Tokyo recently to open a provincial trade office, Japanese officials expressed in- terest in signing contracts for Alberta agricultural products. He told a service club meet- ing, it was made clear that fu- ture exports of Alberta raw materials must 'be: 'comple- mented with more shipments of manufactured goods to stimu- late secondary industry. Earlier, at a news confer- ence, the premier said officials at the Alberta trade office would work in co-operation with federal officials to avoid duplication of efforts. The office is to remain open for two years, after which its usefulness will be assessed.

"As a government ,we are concerned1 that the teachers who are instructing our youth are not flagrantly violating the law, which is a law passed by the federal government and ap- plied Mr. Peterson Immediate Repeal Of Order Urged VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia Teachers' Federation has called for an immediate repeal of the pro- vincial government's order that all teachers supporting the FLQ be fired. A spokesman said Monday that the federation executive passed six resolutions calling for the repeal of the order, of- fering support to any teacher dismissed under the order, and seeking public support for the repeal. The provincial cabinet last week passed order "declaring as public policy of the prov- that no person instructing our ince of B.C. teaching or youth in any educational in- stitution receiving public sup- port should be in the employ- ment of that .institution if he advocates the policies of the FLQ or the overthrow of demo- cratically elected govern- ments by violent means." The resolutions said that the Public Schools Act and the code of ethics of the federation have provision for. the fair pre- sentation of controversial ma- terial to students.. Because of this "the BCTF deeply resents the B.C. cabinet order-in-council of Oct. 22 and expects an immediate repeal of this order which seriously threatens the civil liberties, of all public school and post sec- ondary teachers, including such liberties as freedom of expression, both inside and out- side of the classroom and free- dom of political freedom." The resolutions also appeal to all segments of society in the province to support the federation call for repeal of the order. The right of hearing and ap- peal is also demanded for any teacher dismissed under the or- der and full legal and financial support for any teacher so dis- missed was pledged. The executive agreed to meet with Dawson Creek teacher Arthur Olsen, who was dismissed last week for his al- leged FLQ sympathies. The meeting, "to hear his side of the is tentatively sched- uled for Thursday. Meanwhile, a spokesman for the B.C. section of the Cana- dian Bar Association criticized the provincial order singling out teachers.for special puni- tive action under the War Mea- sures Act. CAUT Calls Proclamation 'Shocking' OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Association of University Teachers Monday described as "shocking" a recent British Col- umbia government proclama- tion that teachers may be fired for advocating policies. of the terrorist Front de Liberation du Quebec. In a news release Alwyn Ber- land, executive secretary of CAUT, said the B.C. order-in- council makes teachers subject to. double .jeopardy and1 implies that the federal proclamation of the War Measures Act "was simply not enough." Mr. Borland the action negates the civil rights of the teachers and sets them apart as a marked group. In a telegram to Premier W. A. C. Bennett, the CAUT said it deplored the action of the provincial government and urged the "immediate rescind- ing of this arbitrary and dan- gerous order." In a separate telegram, the association asked Justice Minis- ter John Turner to "speak out against provincial abuses" of the emergency legislation. Pollution Fines Given Approval CALGARY (CP) Fines of, up to a day were pro-! vided for polluters of Calgary rivers and streams under a by- law passed by city council. The legislation also provides for a reward of up to for information leading to the con- viction of such offenders. that they are not based on inter- national agreement. Also introduced for second reading Monday was a govern- ment bill providing for stringent new controls on investment companies, enterprises which borrow from the public for pur- poses of re-investment. The bill is one which failed to emerge from the committee stage in the last session of Par- liament and) re-introducing it, finance Minister Edgar Benson said it was essentially un- changed. He was challenged on that point by Conservative fi- nance critic Marcel Lambert (Edmonton West) who main- tained that a change in one of the provisions of the legislation rendered it unconstitutional. The bill later received second reading and was referred to the Commons finance committee. Mr. Lambert also criticized the legislation because it would give the federal superintendent of insurance powers of both "prosecutor and judge" over in- vestment companies. THREE RE-INTRODUCED Three other government bills, stalled in the last session, were re-introduced, including .the much-disputed Canada grains bill and a bill to establish a national farm product market- ing council. The marketing bill is a mea- sure designed to create a tax review board to hear appeals on matters relating to the Income Tax Act, the Canada Pension Plan, the Estate Tax Act and other similar legislation. Corporarate Affairs Minister Ron Basford also introduced for first reading a bill to provide federal incorporation for co-op, erative businesses which oper- ate in more than one province. A statement released by Mr. Basford made clear that the legislation did not touch the con- tentious issue of taxation of co- operatives. "This is a question for my colleague, the minister of finance." The bill would affect .directly some 40 co-operatives now oper- ating under the Corporations Act and would facilitate incor- poration of new inter-provincial co-ops. Several co-operatives which now hold parliamentary charters would be able to incor- porate themselves under the terms of tlie new bill without great expense. Drug Bill Signed By Nixon WASHINGTON (AP) Presi- dent Nixon today signed a drug bill aimed at drug and narcotics pushers, asking public support for an all-out fight against drug use by young people. Enforcement tools provided by the new law, plus the sup- port of all United States citi- zens, may "save the Hves of thousands of young people who might otherwise be hooked on Nixon said.

Cec Purves has withdrawn a motion before city council ask- ing for a plebiscite on a pos- sible merger between the city's publlic and separate school systems. He said he has been inform- ed by the city's legal depart- ment that the question is not within the jurisdiction of the city. Dr. Walter Worth, chairman of the Alberta Commission on Educational Planning, said he doubts a unified school system would result in economic ef- ficiencies in a city as large as Edmonton.

Pilot Error Forced Landing Of Plane In Soviet Area MOSCOW (AP) TITO Amer- ican diplomats reported from Hie Soviet-Turkish border today that "a pilot error" caused a light plane with two United States generals on board to land in Soviet Armenia six days ago.

He said the four men are being held "in quite comfortable circumstances" and apparently have not been severely interro- gated. llio pilot told the diplomat that a freak gust of wind caught the unarmed, two-engined plane last Wednesday and blew it across the border.
