Conference chairman Jack (PC-Crowfoot) told del- egates HIP report "only goes to prove that newspaper rr.en write only what they want, no matter what takes place." The story said British Colum- bia delegates to Uie conference, ill co-ordination with national party officials, were seeking to have the conference pass a res- olution affirming Mr. Stanfield's leadership, but they were being opposed by Prairie delegates. B.C. leaders denied that their ]J-man group of delegates had discussed putting any motion forward.

The proposal was not pro- ceeded with alter several dele- gates said newspaper reports should not disrupt the scheduled business of the conference.

A team headed by Robert M. Lieberf ol the State Uni- versity oE New York at Stoney Brooke and Robert A. Baron of Purdue University said children often reproduce ag- gressive acts modelled on tel- evision. "At least under some cir- cumstances, repeated expo- sure to televised aggression can lead children lo accept what they have seen as a par- tial guide for their own ac- the report said. Among many studies cited was a comparison of children wlio Mere questioned after seeing TV shows. Those who saw violent programs consist- ently showed move aggressive tendencies than similar chil- dren who watched non-violent shows, the scientists said.

They will have new ammuni- tion to fire in pursuit of changes the Criminal Code, amended on this question 13 months ago. The new help comes from the Canadian Medical Association, which has sent circulars to; even' MP with material draw- j ing attention to the new position taken by organized medicine last June. In effect, the association's general council came down firmly cm the side of abortion being a matter for decision be- tween a woman and her doctor Among other provisions, the resolution said the doctors rec- ognize a justification for abor- tion "on non-medical social grounds." ft called for amendment of the existing law, brought into force in August, 1970, which leaves the decision on termira- tion of pregnancy to a three- member hospital abortion com- mittee. CHANGED VIEWS The criteria are whether the life or health of the mother is endangered by pregnancy. The medical association's let- ter to Parliamentarians noted that the current law reflected the position of organized medi- cine at the time it was intro- duced in 1969. But since then the new, posi- tion has been the gen- eral council meeting in Halifax June 7-9. The parliament of medicine in Halifax said that the Criminal Code limitations on abortion should apply only with respect to "persons other Uian qualified licensed physicians'1 or to oper- ations performed "in facilities other than approved hospitals." The government seemed re- ceptiw to further changes in the law in the speech from the throne which opened the current session Oct. 0, 1970. It spoke of "norms ol con- duct" never being statis and the need of free society being pre- pared constantly to assess the effect of changing attitudes. I PROMISES TIME I The ihrone speech wound up this lecture with a promise to make time available during this for debate on abortion. Deputed pressure from MPs such as Grace Maclnnis (NDP- Vancouver-KingswayJ failed to get Ilie government to name the dale publicly. She and olhers will renew the pressure next week. Meanwhile, informants said government intends !o re- deem the promise, possibly an unusual procedural device of a government-sponsored "take note" resolution. The .iming probably would bo in the period after the Commons conculdes debate on sweeping tax refcrm legislation and whilo i the Senate is acting on the tax bill. Drug-induced insanity Watson's plea LOS ANGELES (Heuter) psvchiatrist testified r e c e n tly that Charles (Tex) Walso'- had brain damage caused by heaiy drag use when he killed actress Sharon Tate and six others in August.. 1969. Dr. Ira Frank, assistant pro- fessor of psychiatry at the Uni- versity of California here, said Watson, 25, was aeulely psy- chotic at Uie time of the mur- ders. Watson has admitted the kill- ings, but claimed he murdered while suffering from drug-in- duced insanity and while under the orders of his leader Charles Manson. who has already been sentenced to death for masterminding the killing.
