WINNIPEG (CP) Sgt. Willis Pritchard would risk the math of carnival dart- booth operators any day for the pleasure of handing out his booty in stuffed animals to children. The sergeant and two fel- low Canadian Armed Forces conspirators, all three crack dart-throwers, succeeded in being barred from about 10 booths at the Pacific Na- tional (Exhibition for winning consistently. Sgt. Prilchard, who went to Vancouver for three weeks as administrative sergeant for the force's display at the ex- hibition, said total winnings o? the three were 46 stuffed animals, each of which would cost to retail. The trick was to break three consecutive balloons three darts for 50 cents for a prize. Sometimes the servicemen would break only two at first, lulling the oper- ator into a false sense of se- curity. Some of the stuffed prizes came to Winnipeg with Sgt. Pritchard, for this three chil- dren and foster child, and some remained In Vancouver with other foster children and children of servicemen. MONTREAL (CP) A note purporting to be from the ter- rorist Front de Liberation du Quebec, saying author Pierre Vallieres has gone into hiding, was published today by two Montreal newspapers. Vallieres, author of While Nigger of America, did not ap- pear in court as scheduled Tues- day to have trial dates set for trial on charges of sedition and counselling to kidnapping and murder. The note published in Mont- real-Matin and the Journal de Montreal says Vallieres went into hiding "because there are more important things for a revolutionary to do in Quebec than to submit interminably to fake political trials." The French-language morning tabloids said they found copies of the note after receiving anon- ymous telephone calls. One was in a litter basket opposite Mont- Clinic set for donors PINCHER CREEK-A blood donors' clinic will not be held at the Anglican Church Hall Sept. 23 from 2 to 4 p.m. and from p.m. to 9 p.m. real-Matin and the other was found in an east-end telephone booth. The newspaper says the rote was found in a garbage bin in a northeast Montreal park laic Thursday afternoon. When Vallieres did not appear in court Tuesday, Crown prose- cutor Stephen Cuddihy asked that no warrant for his arrest be executed until Sept. 27, the date set for his trial. During the last four years Vallieres has spent most of the time in jail awaiting trial on various charges connected with terrorist SL'bversion. After last October's two kidnappings and his arrest under the War Mea- sures Act, the previous charges were dropped and he was charged with seditious conspir- acy and memlXTShip in the FLQ. His two co-accused on the conspiracy Charles Gagnon and former broadcaster Jacques Larue-Lan- g 1 o i s ere acquitted last spring. All charges of FLQ membership were suspended in August by the Crown. Vallieres was released from Jail in June after posting bail on the conspiracy and FLQ charges and 5500 bail on his ap- peal against seven contempt of court citations, earned in earlier trials.

'Get tough' Kierans OTTAWA (CP) Canada is going to have to get together do- mestically and get tough inter- nationally to avoid slipping down the economic drain, Eric Kierans told the Commons Thursday. Mr. Kierans, who quit the Lib- eral cabinet in April because he disagreed with government eco- nomic policies, said Canada is faced with a productivity crisis similar to the one that prompted President N i x o n 's drastic change in U.S. economic policy. While he did not recommend a price-and-wage freeze, he said labor and business and the fed- era] and provincial govern- ments must identify Canada's chief national goal as high em- ployment and unify to bring it about. And if such a co-operative na- tionalist approach wat to suc- ceed, the federal government must strongly resist interna- tional pressure that would turn the country into a resource sup- ply base, destined to wither as its resources diminish. To NDP applause, he again attacked the government for in his giving too many favors to industries extracting non-re- newable resources for export. DEBATE AID BILL Mr. Kierans spoke during the third day of debate on second reading of tv government's bill to provide million assistance to industries that would be in- jured by the U.S. lO-per-cent surtax on imports, announced Aug. 15. It was considered likely the bill wnuM get second reading today and then go to the Com- mons finance committee for dause-b.y-clau.se examination. The former communications minister said the U.S. has told Canada, through its new eco- nomic measures, it wanted a continuing supply of Canadian raw resources lor U.S. eco- nomic expansion, but that Can- ada should stop trying to export manufactured goods and get ready to accept manufactured goods from the U.S. That pressure had to be re- sisted. To do so, he suggested the government should: provincial ajid cor- porate borrowing in Canada to ensure a downward pressure on the Canadian dollar, and thus a better export position; any U.S. or Group of 10 pressure to peg the Canadian dollar at or above par com- pared with the U.S. dollar. Soviet seaman wius hacking of petition CAMPBELL RIVER, B.C. (CP) A petition is being cir- culated in this northern Van- couver Island community ask- ing the immigration department to grant Soviet seaman Serge Kourdakov political asylum. Lawyer Al Lazerle, spokes- man for those circulating the petition, said Thursday the pe- titioners fear Mr. Kourdakov may be returned to the Soviet TJiuiion as a "sacrificial lamb" in order not to upset the forli- coming visit to Canada of So- viet Premier Alexel Kosygin. The seaman swam ashore from his fishing vessel last Sat- urday, land.'ng at Tasu in the Queen Charlotte Islands. He ap- peared before an immigration department special inquiry in Vancouver Wednesday and ask- ed for asylum.
