Officials estimate that there are about white small- businessmen in this West African territory. So far they are the only residents who have indicated that they wish to leave when the territory gains its independence from Portugal and becomes Guinea-Bissau. Many shopkeepers insisted in interviews that they would not be welcome here under the new government that will be formed by the African party for the independence of Por- tuguese Guinea and the Cape Verde Islands. The party which waged a war for independence for 13 years has given no indication, however, that it wants whites to leave. The white business community grew with the escalation of the war, which brought the Portuguese soldiers here and put about Africans in military uniform on the Por- tuguese side. But according to Carlos Domingues Gomes, one of the two black African store-owners in Bissau, the growth of the white business community here was at the expense of blacks. He said that there had been more than 20 black shopkeepers in Bissau before the Portuguese "harassed, frightened or forced them out of business." Gomes, 45 years old, is an outspoken supporter of the guerrilla movement. He said that he had been arrested 18 times before the April 25 coup in Lisbon. He said the Portuguese would not allow Africans the same business opportunities as they had for themselves, and that they used the Lebanese merchants as "buffers" to keep smaller businesses out of African hands. "Africans do not want the Portuguese to he asserted. "The Portuguese only exploited Bissau; they did not help Bissau." Although the white small-businessmen want to leave, large businesses controlled by whites plan to stay. These include the country's largest commercial enterprise, the Uniao Fabril Company, a giant Portuguese international concern operating here through a company called Casa Geverea. The holding company's manager, Victor Rodrigues, who has been stationed here 13 years, said that the company would like to stay and that its production in Bissau, now that the guerrilla war had ended, could greatly benefit the new nation. Rodrigues said that in 1972 his company had exported 000 tons of peanut oil and tons of palm oil. This could easily be multiplied five or six times, he said. The man who saved soul of Paris PARIS (Reuter) Two years ago Valery Giscard d'Estaing peered gloomily through the Arc de Triomphe and saw new office buildings blotting out the skyline. But he said nothing. He was finance minister and his boss, the late president Georges Pompidou, was a firm supporter of the skyscraper development. Now, after only three months as president, Giscard is building a reputation as the man who saved the soul of old Pans. In two unexpected moves, he vetoed a plan for building a highway along the picturesque Left Bank of the River Seine and ordered a park in place of a giant commercial centre on the site of the dismantled Les Halles market. France's environmentalists are jubilant. But the construc- tion and real estate industry is concerned. "Giscard has brought an end to building speculation one real estate expert lamented." The president's decision to create a park in the ancient Right Bank area where Les Halles stood will give the heart of Paris its first exten- sive green space. Though tiny compared with New York's Central Park or London's Hyde Park, the pro- posed park is likely to emerge greener and fresher than the popular but scrubby Luxem- bourg Gardens on the Left Bank. So the decision to abandon Les Halles commercial subway terminal and shopping gallery will still be built below the park- pleased environmentalists as much as the halting of the in- ner-city highway. As conceived in Pompidou's time, the modern highway would have brought traffic within a stone's throw of the medieval towers of Notre Dame Cathedral. The planners intended to cover the highway to keep the traffic out of sight at beauty spots like Notre Dame, but the project would have destroyed the atmosphere of the cobbled Seine quais with their book- sellers and parapets for lingering lovers. The latest word is that Gis- card plans to lower the max- imum permitted height of new. shot up to sky- scraper level in the Pompidou 'urbanization to review renewal projects. One purpose would be to slow down the replacement of graceful old apartment buildings with ultra-modern office blocks. Some business leaders com- plain that the president took the decision on Les Halles without consulting or warning municipal leaders. But an anti-inflation program that includes heavy cuts in government spending on construction is helping to force the president's hand by convincing Frenchmen that the headlong rush into moder- nity cannot maintain its pace forever. "Giscard's said the news magazine Le Point, "is to have understood that the French need to breathe a little, to mark time in their race for progress." Acupuncture provinces team with Ottawa clinic near VICTORIA (CP) Health Minister Dennis Cocke says his department is within a month or six weeks from opening an acupuncture clinic at Vancouver General Hospital. He said work towards setting up the first such clinic in British Columbia is going well. The minister announced last month that his department was working towards es- tablishing two acupuncture clinics one in Vancouver and the other in Victoria. in transport corporation PITTSBURGH (CP) All Canadian provinces are likely to be partners with the federal government in the proposed National Urban Transporta- tion Development Corp., Urban Affairs Minister Barnett Danson says. Mr. Danson told an inter- national urban transit conference here that prospects for full provincial support for the federally proposed corporation appear good. The corporation, which would market and develop urban transit systems, was proposed two years ago by former urban affairs minister Ron Basford. The Ontario government already had mov- ed into the field with its On- tario Transportation Develop- ment Agency which will market a West German magnetic levitation tra. system adapted for Canadian conditions. Mr. Danson said the govern- ment is well along in negotiations with provinces about details of the new cor- poration. An urban affairs depart- ment spokesman said in Ot- tawa that officials now are discussing how the company will be formed. FIRST QUALITY CANADIAN MADE ONE LOW PRICE!
