Salary index rejected MONTREAL (CP) Law- rence Hanigan, chairman of Montreal Urban Community, rejected Friday a special investigator's recommenda- tion that salaries for striking transit workers be indexed to the cost-of-living. "I think it would be very bad to buy peace with money when basic principles are at Mr. Hanigan said as the walk- out by garage and maintenance workers entered its second month and buses were pulled off the streets for the fourth consecutive weekend for repairs by super- visors.

Vibration plagues Ford DEARBORN. Mich (AP) Published reports say Ford Motor Co. will have to spend more than million to cor- rect a vibration problem in its new luxury compacts, but Ford officials deny the Ford Granadas or Mercury Monarchs have any widespread defect. They said minor adjustments of new models is a routine matter. The San Francisco Ex- aminer says the models, to go on sale in two weeks, shake alarmingly at high speeds. A story Friday quotes an un- named Ford official in Detroit as saying: "They found out about the shimmy three weeks ago. The cars shake like hell at 70 m.p.h. The correction is going to cost a car, and that's coming off our bottom profit line."

QUALIFIED APPROVAL GRANTED GRAIN PLAN REGINA (CP) Federal proposals to provide in- come stability for Prairie grain producers received qualified approval Friday from the Canadian Federa- tion of Agriculture. But the National Farmers Union was less optimistic, saying the grains income stabilization legislation was designed to sustain the country's economy in general rather than "really assist individual farmers" over periods of low grain prices. Federal officials, led by Esmond Jarvis. associate deputy agriculture minister, spent two days here out- lining draft proposals to the NFU and the federation's directors. The program is designed to replace legislation withdrawn in 1971 because of combined rejection by western farm groups and opposition parties who said the plan failed to meet rising production costs and in- flationary factors. Charles Munro of Ottawa, federation president, said the meeting was informative and adding it represented a "tremendous challenge both to the federal department and to the federation" in having it accepted by grain producers. Mr. Munro said there had to be a strong incentive for the producers or "it just won't work." Don Lockwood of Regma, Saskatchewan wheat pool vice-president, said the program basically is "design- ed to take a little off the top to fill in the gullies from time to time." Details of the new federal plan have not been made public, but industry sources said that in the first three years producers will have the option not to participate in the program. Under the voluntary program the government will contribute four per cent and the farmer two per cent of his total grain sales in any one year to a stabilization fund. In years when grain prices fall below the previous five-year average, a payment will be made from the fund to individual producers to raise the price to the average. While no firm figures were available on how much the program would cost the government, some sources indicated it could be million.

With flags crackling in a stiff breeze, Len Marchand, Liberal Member of Parlia- ment and member of the Okanagan tribe in B.C., un- veiled a 90 pound aluminum plaque erected by the national historic parks and sites branch of the Indian and northern affairs department. Standing in for Indian and Northern Affairs Minister Judd Buchanan, Marchand told 400 school children enjoy- ing an afternoon out of classrooms that the historic significance of the battle ground, just north of the University of Lethbridge, "goes beyond war and bloodshed." "The tragic results (of the 1870 battle) impressed the gravity of the situation upon the government in Ottawa. With no force in the territory to prevent violence and hardship, the government realized that it was powerless to govern the territory properly. "This battle (and other events) led to the es- tablishment of a force of Northwest Mounted Police, with headquarters at Fort Macleod. "Perhaps if the force had been formed and had arrived before 1870, serious loss of life could have been prevented Marchand said. Peace, not war, is the historic significance of the national monument, said Lieutenant Governor Ralph Steinhauer. a Cree. whose ancestors may have been in- volved in the skirmish which left 300 Cree, Blackfoot. Bloods, Peigans and Assiniboines dead in Indian Battle Coulee. While a few school children frolicked in the coulee, and others, armed with in- slamatics, cameras, tried to outflank media earner-men, local historian Alex Johnston described the scene in Indian Battle Coulee 104 years ago. Backed up by their allies, the Assiniboines. the Cree at- tacked a Blackfoot camp ear- ly one October morning. Their attack was successful, but the attackers were unable to flee the coulee, as Blackfoot warriors armed with American-made repeating rifles sought revenge. The battle was bloody and the Blackfoot were merciless in their pursuit of the Cree. But out of respect for all dead, the Blackfoot built rock cairns to mark where they fell in battle. Some of these cairns are still visible. Following the unveiling of the 28 inch square plaque, cast by Alcan in Kingston, Ont., Rev. A. Duhaime of St. Mary's School on the Blood Reserve offered the dedication. Visiting dignitaries, which included Blood Chief Jim Shot Both Sides, Lethbridge MP Ken Hurlburt, Lethbridge Mayor Andy Anderson, and of- ficials from federal, provin- cial and municipal governments, were introduc- ed to the crowd by Lewis Thomas, the Alberta member of the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. Deserter review planned WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford says he will establish a review board to consider amnesty for Vietnam-era draft dodgers and deserters. The board, patterned after one created by President Harry Truman after the Se- cond World War, is one of "10 to 15 points" which an aide said vail be included in an amnesty plan Ford will an- nounce Tuesday. The president personally confirmed his intention to set up the review board in talking with reporters Friday night aboard his jetliner while returning trom Philadelphia, where he addressed a dinner marking the 20th anniversary of the First Continental Congress He said he has not decided who will be chairman of the board, which an aide said will have three to seven members. White House press secretary Jarald terHorst said the review board will be composed basically of non- government members. He said it will not include military representatives. He said the board will deal with amnesty cases both indi- vidually and by categories- such as military deserters, young men who left the United States to avoid the draft or individuals who refused induc- tion and underwent federal prosecution The president personally will set the broad guidelines for the board to follow as it takes up what terHorst described as the "knotty cases Ford said last month that he favors leniency and a system of "earned re-entry" for Viet- nam war registers. Since then, he has received suggestions from Defence Secretary James Schlesirger and Attorney-General William Saxbe on how to implement an amnesty plan.
