Minister asks Japan for imports TOKYO (AP) Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie of Canada proposed today that Japan increase its imports of Canadian manufactured goods. During the course ot a meet- ing with Yasuhiro Nakasone. Japan's minister of inter- national trade and industry, Gillespie said Canada would like to upgrade the contents of its trade with Japan and would like to receive more Japanese tourists. He suggested that Japan might purchase from Canada short-takeoff-and-landing (STOL) aircraft, nuclear reactors, processed lumber and processed agricultural products. At present, by far the major part of Canada's sizeable ex- ports to Japan consist of raw materials and grains. Gillespie noted that Japan's minister of agriculture and forestry. Yoshio Sakurauchi, is scheduled to visit Canada soon to discuss farm-product purchases. By EDWARD BURKS New York Times Service GREENWICH "It's all right. We just grazed an iceberg." That was the "reassuring" message of a crew member, a lively 89-year-old survivor of the Titanic recalled here at a memory-charged meeting of buffs and survivors of history's greatest peacetime Maritime disaster. Mrs. Edwina MacKenzie, who wasn't reassured by that message at all, and six other Titanic survivors, were here to tell again the story of that icy "night to remember" when the White Star liner was ripped open by an iceberg on its maiden voyage to New York in 1912, "stood on end, fully lit" and plunged to the bottom. One of the survivors, 80- year-old Mrs. Margaret Devaney O'Neill of Clifton, N.J., produced some awed comment by pulling out her steerage ticket for that voyage, clearly printed with her accommodations in Cabin Q41. Four of the seven told of continuing to sail the Atlantic afterwards, although Mrs. O'Neill did wait 40 years for her next voyage on the Mauritania in 1952. The occasion of the meeting was the 10th anniversary of the founding of Titanic Enthusiasts of America, a 250- member group scattered across the United States and several European countries, including a large number of shipping and professional people. As the long years go by, a few new fragments of the story of that night when more than 1.500 people perished in the icy north Atlantic come to light. Of some 700 survivors, less than 30 are believed still living. Mrs. MacKenzie, who at the time was 27-year-old Winnie Troutt of Bath, Somerset. England, tells of being handed a tiny baby boy by a distraught father before going into her lifeboat, No. 13. There was the miraculous reu- nion of baby and mother, who had been in another lifeboat, on a rescue ship. But for 60 years Mrs. MacKenzie had never known until last year the rest of the story. It was only then that she found out the name of the baby boy and that he had perished of influenza when he was 20 years old.

Legal fees hiked for Ontario plan TORONTO (CP) At- torney-General Dalton Bales announced today increases averaging 25 per cent in the fees paid to lawyers by the On- tario Legal Aid Plan.
