Skipper David McTaggart of Vancouver has said he was beaten by the French boarding party. The spokesman for Mr. Sharp was asked whether the official request for an investigation means the Canadian govern- ment accepts Mr. McTaggarts explanation. "Not he replied, but that doesn't mean we don't. We've asked for official affidavits from the crew." Initial claims by Mr. McTaggart that his vessel was in international water when seized were discounted by France, but it subsequently agreed with the Canadian skip- pers claim. It said the vessel was boarded secause it was inside a security zone designed to protect vessels from damage by a nuclear test. Greenpeace HI is believed ll held by the French at Pa- peete, Tahiti.

Effective Nov. 1, it will be an offence under the act to im- jort, sell or advertise pencils r artists' brushes that contain more than 0.5 per cent of lead ompounds in their decorative qatings, a department news elease said. Most of the industry has al- eady shifted from the use of ead-based paints, the news re- ease added.

Son of railway worker wage I OTTAWA (CP) The son of a Canadian National Railways employee, Mr. Justice Emmett Hall, has been appointed arbi- trator in the non-operating rail workers" contract dispute. Mr. Justice Hall, 74, is a re- tired Supreme Court of Canada judge noted in the past for his concern with social issues. The selection of Mr. Justice Hall was announced Wednesday by Labor Minister John Munro after several days of specula- tion about who might be chosen to help resolve tlie stalled 10- month railway negotiations. His appointment follows Par- liament's passage Saturday of a law to end the national rail strike conducted by the member Associated Non-Oper- ating Railway Unions. The bill provided for continued contract talks through mediation and ap- pointment of an arbitrator. But Mr. Munro said earlier this week he would bypass the mediation stage and proceed into arbitration. Although Mr. Justice Hall j was not named specifically to j deal with contract disputes be- j tween railways and two other groups of workers, Mr. Munro said he thought there would be some benefit in having the same arbitrator to resolve those i problems. The law providing for arbi tration also applies to shopcraft tradesmen and trainmen who have not ye taken strike action. Mr. Munro said he would talk to leaders of those two groups to determine if they want to continue talks or proem directly into arbitration. They may want a different arbi trator, he added. Reaction from union leaden to Mr. Justice Hall's appoint- ment was generally favorable Richard Smith, chief negotiator for the non-ops, said he felt the judge's background made him "a very socially-minded per- son." MEETING PLANNED Mr. Munro said he planned to meet with Mr. Justice Hall later this week to discuss the dispute. The judge now is in Re- pina conducting a study on the Saskatchewan courts for the provincial government. The arbitration process prob- ably will get under way quickly, the minister added. Under terms of reference set down by the government, Mr. Justice Hall is to: union job security de- mands and explore feasibility of a plan based on attrition. changes to existing work rules that might adversely affect pay, earnings, job oppor- tunities or safety of workers. for adjustment of wages to the cost-of-living. in detail costing of a pension plan worked out by the unions and companies in earlier negotfens. An investigation is :o be made of pension plan costs by John Deutsch, princi- pal of Queen's University and a specially-appointed industrial inquiry commissioner. all other matters in dispute. A bilingual native of St. Col- umban, Que., about 25 miles north of Montreal, Mr. Justice Hall graduated in law from the University of Saskatchewan in 1919 and made a reputation in trials that included defence of men involved in the 1935 Regina riot. He became Chief Justice of Saskatchewan in 1961 and was named to the Supreme Court of Canada in 1962. Just before his retirement earlier this year he wrote a dis- sent that asserted aboriginal right of the Nishga In- dians in British Columbia to thousands of square miles in the Nass River valley. MR. JUSTICE HAtl Japan must accept processed food won't run REGINA fCP) _ Former lighways minister Dave Boldt announced today lie will not be I a candidate in the next provin- 1 cial election. EDMONTON (CP) Japan must be prepared to accept Alberta food products in pro- cessed form if the province is to assist the Japanese in meet- ing their demand for food, Ag- riculture Minister Hugh Horner said yesterday. Alberta is very capable of processing to Japanese require- ments and "we are hopeful that Japanese trading compan- ies will show greater interest in this type of Dr. Hor- ner told visiting Japanese jour- nalists. Alberta's marketing policy involves joint ventures with both domestic and foreign com- panies. The minister said the recent announcement concerning the construction of a million, rapeseed plant at Lloydmin- ster, Alta. is an example of the government's decision to process more agricultural pro- ducts within the province. The plant, which will involve no gov- ernment funds, is a joint venture of British Columbia Packers, United Grain Growers Ltd. and another company. The Japanese journalists are visiting Alberta at the request of the Alberta government and the Alberta Farm Writers As- sociation. Child battering registry set up EDMONTON (CP) The provincial cabinet yesterd a y provided to benefit a province wide registry of child battering, Neil Craw- ford, minister of health and so- cial development said. The registry will be a cen- tral listing of all suspected or identified instances of child battering which are reported. It is impossible to take action without sufficient evidence In a single suspected case but enough accumulated informa- ;ion might indicate a particu- lar home was not safe for a child, he said. Using the registry, he said, social workers could spot pro- blems as they develop to en- sure that parents or others could get help as quickly as possible. The statistics gathered will help determine the volume, lo- cation and nature of child bat- tering and will also ensure that parents who are suspected of abusing their child on more than one occasion, do not shop around for various medical and social services and thus remain undetected.
