Congress reconvened today to deal with business left behind for a month's recess, nnd to begin work on Hie new eco- nomic package.

The first session o[ the 92nd Congress was faced with a sub- si antial workload even before Nixon recommended a series of lax measures on Aug. 15, when he announced his 90-day freeze on wages and prices. Now the economic package, and the response of Democrats who control Congress, is sure to be a dominant issue in the bal- ance of a session likely lo run into water.

The committee, established In 1970, said Canada "should not be encouraging another country's exploitation of our mineral resources only in re- ,urn for the relatively few jobs it would create."

Surcharge remedy Stanfield By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa bureau OTTAWA Opposition lead- ers Tuesday attacked the gov- ernment's proposals lor easing the effect of U.S. import sur- charges as being too vague and far too inadequate. Progressive Conservative Op- posilion Leader Robert Stan- Field said the government's pro- posed assistance legislation was like throwing an umbrella a drowning man. Mr. Stanfield said the bill be- fore the House was too general and too vague. Its provisions would be wide open to abuse and its regula- tions hard to police. New Democratic Party lead- er David Lewis said the bill was mere window dressing, as Ihe government would do no- thing, or very little, to prevent Canadian workers losing their jobs. He described the bill as a 'shameful abortion" of the re- medy that is really needed. Mr. Lewis said that Finance Minister Edgar Benson in his speech to the House wouk paint a rosy picture of Can ada's economy and put the blame for gloom on the door step of the U.S. government. In fact, Mr. Benson's pre- pared speech did stale lhal tilt Gross National Product an; real oulput during the seconc quarter of this year was, as re- ported by Statistics Canada "among the experiencet in recent years." Both Mr. Stanfield and Mr Lewis said the new measures would do little to rectify Can nda's massive uncmploymen problem they said was created by policies of Ihe Liberal administration, not bj Washington's 10 per cent sur charge. Trgde and Commerce Minis ter Jean Luc Pepin painted a dismal picture of the situation He lold Hie House Ihal a sur- vey of companies affect- ed by the surcharge showei lhal Ihe direct loss of export sales at annual rales could ap- proach million after three months, S700 million after six months and 5900 million after one year. Potential loss of jobs from these companies could read- after tlirce months, 000 after six months and after one year. "What are Canadian export- ers expected to do with this 10 per cent surchrge? They have ANGELA BACK IN COURT FOR HEARING Angela Davis confer! with one of her attorneys, Margaret Burnham, left, before itart of today's pre-trial court session in San Rafael, Calif. Miss Davis' chief counsel, Howard Moore Jr., told newsmen ho will ask for a change of venue because recent violence at San Quenlin Prison would prevent his client from goltinfl a fair trial in Marin County. Moore said his motion lo shift Iho trial elsewhora will bo filed loon. two possibilities. You cannot call them choices. They can ab- sorb the surcharges and accept a lower return on their prod- ucts, or they can pass it on to their U.S. customers and there- by risk the loss of their mar- ket. It is not much of a Mr. Pepin said. However, Mr. Pepin said, variations in products and com- panies may allow some com- panies to shoulder the sur- charge beter lhan others. For instance, said Mr. Pepin, injecting a touch of humor into the debate, U.S. consumers of Canadian whisky may not see loo clearly the difference in the prize of that particular commodity when the 10 per- cent surcharge has been added. Mr. Lewis: "If they don't drink enough of it they Mr. Stanfield said he is sur- prised at the language of the bill. "For a government that has wantonly and deliberately pro- duced policies that have dished up a bellyful of disruptive ef- fects on the Canadian cconomy to suggest that the present dis- ruptions are caused subslan- lially from abroad, or could only happen by accident, cer- lainly would he rieceilfully ridi- said the Opposition leader. He said some government ministers have tried to create a public picture of themselves as that of the innocent, dutiful boy slicking his thumb inlo Ihe dyke to save the village. The public isn't going lo buy that picture, he said. Teen-agers die hi crash BURNABY, B.C. (CP) A pickup truck crammed with stu- dents on Ihcir way to school Tuesday colli.'lcd with another truck and slammed into a power pole, killing two and in- juring at least 10.

No decision reached on N-tests WASHINGTON (CP) A stale department official said Tuesday lhal a final decision has not yet been reached on whelher to conduct a nuclear underground test on Ajnchitka Island in the Aleutian chain. Press officer Charles W. Bray was commenting on remarks by Canadian External Affairs Min- ister Sharp in the last two days about Ihe proposed lest. At an Atoms for Peace confer- ence Monday, the Canadian minister forecast a public out- cry if the U.S. goes ahead with Ihe lest, which is the biggest ever at five megatons. The blast is scheduled tor next month. Sharp also called for an un- derground lesl-ban treaty at a meeting of the Geneva disarma- ment conference Tuesday. Bray said the Canadian gov- ernment protested the U.S. test plans last winter. In March the Nixon administration responded that a final decision had not been made on whether to con- duct the lest. Soviets just looking HOUSTON (Reulcr) Recent Soviet space shots SUWK! '.he Russians may be preparing for their first manned mission to the could come after America's final lunar- landing trip in December next year. This view was put forward by Dr. Charles Sheldon of the Li- brary of Congress in Washing- ton, but he added that the bal- ance of evidence leaned towards a moon orbital night no lunar landing. Sheldon is the foremost U.S. expert on the Soviet space pro- gram. Russia's maiden moon mis- sion might seem anti-climactic, coming some four years or more after the first American set foot on the moon. Sheldon sees it as part of an ambitious long-range plan to land cosmo- nauts on the planet Mars. "A Russian manned landing on Mars could come as early as he said in a telephone in- terview Tuesday night. "But I would say that some lime around 198fi is more likely." The U.S. has no plans at present for a manned landing on Mars, known as the red planet and currently the destin- ation for one American and two Soviet unmanned probes. Evidence that Russia is pre- paring for a manned moon shot to follow up its series of robot lunar missions comes from close examination of the per- formance lour unmanned Cosmos space vehicles launched during the last 10 months. Western experts say the last 434, launched Aug. out a throttle rocket much like the Apollo space- craft's main engine. The engine was several times more powerful than those aboard the Soyuz spacecraft which cosmonauts ride into earth orbit. Cosmos 434, like its apparent predecessors in the moon 379 (Nov. 382 (Dec. 2) and 398 (Feb. launched into an initial earth orbit of 51 degrees inclination to the equator.
