CALGAHY (CP) The pro-; vineial department of environ- ment says the Bow River is a "good walcr njpply" but Ihe; fish and wildlife division says it is a "polluted river." j P. G. Shewchuk. a water pol-1 lution engineer wilh the vironment department, said in j a report lhat introduction of secondary sewage treatment by the city lias reduced by 75 per cent (he amount of oxygen-con- suming vaslcs being dumped into the Bow. His tests were conducted be-. tween September, 1970, and March of this year with sam- ples taken 11 separate times from sites within the city and downstream. However, pollunon biologist Paul Paelkau said Ihe survey, was confined largely to "grab i samples" taken once a month j with continuous monitoring 1 only at a site 15 miles down-' stream. A main factor in determining. a clean river is the amount ofj oxygen available for fish and in all cases levels were above proviucinl slamlars, Mr. Shew- chuk said. Pactkau said tests by the fish and wildlife division were conducted on the basis of clean- water organisms such as flies that form the diet of game fisli and polluted water -or- ganisms such as blood worms and sludge worms fed upon by coarse fish. At a site 15 miles above the city, 80 per cent of the organ- isms were of the clean-water variety while 15 miles below the city only five to 10 per cent were of that type. Forty miles downstream, 60 per cent were clean-water types while SO miles down- stream, the water was as good as almve the city. The sampling was taken in both the fall and spring and during Ihe last three years to measure changes over the win- ter when river flows are low- est and the ice cover keeps dis- solved oxygen at a minimum. Mr. Paetkau said the in- creased sewage treatment was beneficial as in earlier tests 40 miles downstream revealed on 30 per cent of the organisms of the clean-water variety, half the latest reading. The organism count would re- differ fleet changes in the river qual- ily that could be missed by mechanical sampling devices, ho said. companies pur chased Bourassa asks probe into thefts I Security QUEBEC (CP) P r e m i e r Robert Bourassa has asked Quebec provincial police to in- vestigate a series of recent thefts of communications equip- ment from civil protection units in the Montreal area. However Mr. Bourassa re- fused further comment Thurs- day on speculation that the thefts are related to Quebec ter- rorism. A spokesman for the c o m- bined anti-terrorist squad said' in Montreal earlier that Quebec terrorists might be staging a series of unusual thefts to equip themselves with special fre- quency radios, gas masks and flashlights. Members of the squad, made up of RCMP, Montreal and QPP specialists, are studying six thefts committed during the last 10 days from civil protcc-j tion units and police vehicles. The latest theft was commit- ted Monday night v.hen an un- marked car belonging lo Mon- treal police disappeared from a Montreal garage. It was found later but its radio was gone. "There's nothing lo indicate! that the thefts were committed! by members of the Front de Liberation du said Insp. Paul Bcaudry, comman-! ding officer of Die lice anti-terrorist squad. "We're a a r e of the thefts but each is inves-j tigating its case."

Trade war impending says Sellers WINNIPEG (CP) Presi- dent George H. Sellers of Fed- eral Grain Lid. warned that a trade war is impending which could seriously harm western Canada's agriculture. i Mr. Sellers was commenting on a report that the European Common Market recently placed a 0.4-per-cent duty on Canadian rapeseed lo Ger- j many and four per cent to Bel- gium, Luxemburg and The Netherlands. During the last crop year ending July 31, Canada sold 9.2 million bushels of rapeseed to The Netherlands and 4.4 mil- lion to Germany. The total ac- counted for about 30 per cent of Canadian rapeseed exports last year. "It appears as though a world trade war is devel- Sir. Sellers said. "If the Canadian government cannot put an end to this trend soon, Wcsle r n Canadian agriculture could be in for serious (rou- ble." Mr. Sellers added few sales of malting barley to the U.S.. which normally purchases eight to 11 million bushels a year, have been made since a 10 per cent duty was an- nounced last month Fugitive may be in Canada SAN FRANCIS'CO (AP) Lawyer Stephen M.

V__________________J Manitoba bank rejected at top WINNIPEG (CP) The fed- eral government has turned down a Manitoba proposal for development of a provin c i a 1 bank in which the NDP gov- ernment would lake an active part, Manitoba Industry Minis- ter Leonard Evans said here. In a prepared statement, Mr. Evans said Ottawa's rcjcclion "severely limits provincial prospecls to bring about lhc de- velopment of a bank lhat will he Manitoba oricnlcd and dif- ferent from the existing bank- ing cartel, which is immune from anti-combines legislalion." Mr. Evans said the Manitoba proposal, rejected by Einance Minister Kdgar llenson, would have provided for extensive government equity in the early stages of the new bank, with gradual wilhdrawal over the years. Mr. Benson had turned down the proposal govern- ment ownership of shores or voting rights is ruled out by the federal bank act. In his statement, Mr. lEvans said Ihe bank act could lie am- ended "to introduce a people- oriented banking system, in- stead of continuing lo protect the small banking elite and their friends." Despite Ihe federal govern- ment's apparent rcjeclion, Mr. Evans said the province will "seriously he exploring" ways of obtaining a provincial hank, "if not a federally chartered hank, then perhaps a provin- cially or inter provincia 11 y owned near-hank." Hi- said he has been encour- aged at Ihe of local groups to Ihe idea of a Mani- toba based bank. The govern- ment would look at any propo- sal on a confidential basis. Creation of a Manitoba-based hank was recommended early Ibis summer following a foas- ibilily study by industry de- partment officials. a a GET THREE PAIRS OF POPULAR SECRET" HOSIERY FOR THE PRICE OF TWO!
