The project is aimed at obtaining young birds in the wild, raising them in an aviary awl eventually restorini falcon populations to will areas. The quantities of poisonous chemicals in the wild should decline to tolerable levels over a period of time, Prof. Robert Lemon, co-ordinator of the Macdonald Raptor Reproduc- tive Research Centre, said in an interview. Raptors are birds of prey ant several species, including fal cons, eagles, and buzzards once common throughout Nortl America, arc threatened witl extinction. Prime reason for the decline scientists say, are pesticide which accumulate in the birds block absorption of calcium i egg shells and restrict repro- duction. The first year's operation of le five-year peregrine falcon program has been financed by private donations, Prof. Lemon said. Further financial support is expected from private and government sources. The last pair of falcons seen in the Montreal area nested on the ledges of the downtown Sun Life Building from 1936 to 1952.

(AP) Three Russian vessels expected in Great Lakes ports to pick up American grain have been di- verted to Canadian ports, says C. Thomas Burke, Duluth port director. The Russian ships had been expected to pick up grain at Chicago under the recent grain sale agreement between the Soviet Union and the U.S., Burke said. The port director said that what had been thought to be an agreement on the shipment of the grain apparently has fallen through. When the grain sale was an- nounced by President Nixon, it was reported that the agree- ment called for one-third of the grain to be shipped in Russian vessels, one-third in U.S. ves- sels and one-tliird in other for- eign vessels. U.S. maritime interests, how- ever, -have recently complained that no U.S. vessels have been booked for the grain shipments. By ROD CURRIE1 WASHINGTON (CP) In ic wake of the traditional La- o.- Day kickoff of the official J.S. presidential election cam- paign, the decidedly untradi- ional role of organized labor is -ause for growing speculation, vith Democratic party leaders till trying to figure out what vent wrong. Until this year, the AFL-CIO las consistently given its sup- port to the Democratic presi- dential candidate since it was 'orraed in the 1950s. But in July, George Meany, grui'f president of the labor organ- ization that includes 117 unions, announced a policy of neutral- ity, saying he personally would not vote for George McGovern or President Nixon and urging union members to concentrate their efforts on electing pro- labor congressmen. Meany's distaste for the left- leaning Senator McGovern is an old story, and predates the successful efforts of McGovem forces to weaken labor's in- fluence on the national con- vention in Miami Beach in July. Although Meany never claim- ed he could deliver the votes of the millions of trade union members within the AFL-CIO, still his taken-for-granted en- dorsement was a valuable as- set to a succession of Demo- cratic presidential candidates. GAINS LABOR VOTES Even more surprising than Meany's defection, in the view of many observers, is the find- ing of several polls that sug- gests Nixon could get maybe half the labor vote Nov. 7, com- pared with the 14 per cent he got in the 1968 election. Indeed, it has been suggested that Meany is not leading his men away from somewhat slav- ish support of the Democratic party, hut in fact Is following them. There is little doubt that events of the last decade have conspired to change the work- Ing man's view of government policies. For instance, McGovern's fluent, many union workers in- terpret such schemes as simply tunneling off their tax dollars for those who don't want to work. They also are skeptical of McGi.ern's pledge to cut billions from the defence bud- get, fearing such a policy also would eliminate thousands of jobs. Nixon has been quick to rec- ognize labor's changing alti- tudes and to seek to capitalize on them. A number of anti-la- bor legislative proposals that traditionally are part of the Re- publican party's platform were nolably absent this year. Nixon's theme has emphasized what he "workfare rather than and it has struck a responsible chord among many blue-collar work- ers disillusioned with the soar- ing costs of welfare. DON'T LOVE NIXON As the polls indicate, workers those even a gen- eration not totally preoccupied by job security, tha rights ol unions and the like. Enjoying a better stand- ard of living than ever before they tend to fall into the "middle America" classi- fication said to look askance a1 McGovem's liberal views on abortion, drug laws and even promises of expanded welfare, unemployment insurance and greater job opportunities the traditional Democratic appeals to the "underdog" often fall on deaf ears.

The new approach evident In bor's ranks, however, is not suggest that Meany and his lowers are exactly in love th Nixon. U.S. unemployment mains high, Inflation still is -etty much out of control and the wage and price tontrols which Nixon invoked are held in contempt by the unions. Still, the negative stance of Meany and some other power- ful labor leaders cannot help but cast a cloud over the Democratic party and give an unexpected lift to the Republi- can cnmp. Lowly Held peas Cinderella crop OTTAWA (CP) Scientists re making a place in Cana- ,an agriculture for the lowly eld pea, potential Cinderella rop of the 1970s, which could [versify the wheat-based econ- my as rapeseed did in the 960s.
