Gastown probe VANCOUVER (CP) A ju- dicial inquiry into the Aug. 7 fracas in Vancouver's gastown district opened Monday bul ad- journed unlil Sept. 20 following a brief morning session al which lawyers representing po- lice requested time lo study "voluminous files." Tire hearing under Mr Jus- tice T. A. Dohm ci the British Columbia Supreme Court was ordered by Attorney-General Leslie Pelerson following com- plaints of police brutality dur- ing the fracas touched off when police broke up a demonstra- tion protecting a crackdown on trafficing in soil drugs in the area. The adjournment was re- quested by lawyer George ray, representing (he city police union, and was supported by lawyer Bill Craig, appearing on behalf of the Vancouver Police Commission. Mr. Murray said he received files Monday which would take him two days to read. He add- ed- "It is obvious there arc going to be certain oEficers whose conduct is going lo be ques- tioned prrAy closely and this is bound lo affect their whole ca- reers on the police force." DIES IN CRASH CALGTRY [CP) Warren Madill. 16, of Calgary was kill- ed Monday when his motor- cycle hit Uie rear of a Ihrec-ton (ruck. The (ruck was turning into a lane from a main slreel when the accident occurred. Three choices tar MDs BANFF (CP) Some doclors become general pracli- I loners by default, Dr. Bruce Ilalliday, prcsidenl-elect ol the College of Family Physicians of Canada, said Monday. In Ihe future, graduates of medical schools might face three equal eiioices about what Lhey wanl lo do, he told Ihe annual convention of the rncmber college. The graduates could go inio one of Uie medical specialties, into research, or into family medicine. "Now, if a young doclor goes inio surgery and fails to get into the College of Surgery, he can be a general practitioner by de- he said. In two sessions Monday, clini- cal specialists lold Uie family doctor about simple tesls he should be doing in his office to give belter heallh care. WATCH THE SWAB Dr. Milton Markowitz, head of pediatrics at Ihe University of Connecticut medical school, urged family doctors nol to overlook the old-fjshioned lliroat swab in identifying rheu- matic fever. He said in an interview later that many family doctors be- lieve that the incidence of (his disease, which can lead lo seri- ous rheumatic heart conditions and even death, has declined. It did for a few years, but now is Increasing, although most cases can be prevented. Rhcumalic fever begins with a "strep throat." caused by the streptococcus bacteria, which can be easily identified by the throat swab so that adequate penicillin or other anlibiolic treatment can be given, he said. Too often when swabs are not i taken, the medication treatment j is inadequate lo wipe out all the j infection and the bacteria at- lack the heart tissues, leading lo rheumalic heart disease. HOSTAGE FREED An unidentified guard talks outside Atlica State Prison walls after being held hostage by rebellious inmatei since rioting erupted inside the prison Thursday, Officials divided as force necessary? 1269 Ave. S lelnbridge 100 Copies plus tax DETECT DEAFNESS Dr. William Campbell, head of the ear, nose and throat de- partment at Foothills Hospilal in Calgary, told family doctors how they could help deled com- mon forms of deafness. Family doctors oflen know of a hislory of German measles in a pregnanl woman and can urge her lo have her newborn child tested for deafness, he said. Deafness is the commonest birth defect that results from tlie unborn baby having been exposed lo the rubella virus, yet it often is the last to be diag- nosed, he said. This is because hearing loss in Uie newborn isn't readily apparent. But newborns should have au- dlometric hearing tests during their first few months of hie if there is an indication that Uie mother has been exposed lo German measles, he said. He also described n small adaption to every doctor's usual instrument for examining the ears. This permits the doctor to blow air against the ear drum lo sec if the middle ear appears to contain fluid. Fluid in the inner ear could mean that the child has serious otitis media, wliich is the com- monest cause of deafness in children and one which can be easily treated if it is detected. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Public officials, penologists and private citizens reacting to Ihe bloody end of the prisoner insurrection al Altica prison are sharply divided over whether Ihe use of force was necessary. President Mxon, in a tele- phone conversation wilh Gov. Nelson A, Rocketeller of New York, expressed support for the governor's response In the four- day rebellion that ended with 28 prisoners and nine hostages killed. Nixon particularly supported Rockefeller's refusal to grant the prisoners' demand for com- plete amnesty for any criminal acls committed during the up- rising, aides lo Ihe Iwo men said. One authority on prisons, Dr. Vcrnon who once spent four days "talking down" a riot al Michigan stale prison, said New York officials mishandled Ihe situation. "What happened at Atlica was said Fox, now a criminologist at Florida Slate University. He called the move "an appalling massacre." "The primary reason for the use of force Is always to create an image for the said Fox, author of Violence Behind Bars, Introduction lo Correction and the forthcoming When Pris- oners Riot. Mayor Kenneth A. Gibson of Newark, N.J.: "The use oE co- ordinated, organized violence in overcoming the inmates at At- tica state prison stands as one of the most callous and bla- tantly repressive acls ever car- ried oul by a supposedly civi- lized society on its own people. Rockefeller's action won the support of many fellow gover- nors who commented at their annual conference in Sac Juan, Puerto Rico. Gov. Preslon Smith al Texas: "If they had a couple of days and could not reach a solution, responsible 1 a w enforcement people had no alternative." Ohio Gov. John J. Gilligan: "There is no way you can par- ley with people on Ihe basis of their holding hostages. It V im- portant to move in early and with overwhelming force." Gov. David Hall ol Oklahoma: "They should have moved the first "day to stop it." Represenlntivc Herman Bad- illo One of a com- mittee of observers who tried to mediate a! the prison: "But time to negotiate is whal is es- sential in Ihese circumstances." Senator James L. Buckley (Rep. "There are times when the law ought to be merciful, This is not one ol them." He termed the "wanton murder" of the hostages "an act of barbarism pure and sim- pie." Rockefeller: "The tragedy was brought on by tire highly-or- ganized, revolutionary tactics ol militants who rejected all ef- forts at a peaceful settlement, forcing a confrontation and car- ried out cold-blooded killings they bad threatened from the outset." He ordered a complete inves- tigation, "including the role that outside forces would appear to have played." Hobby G. Scale, chairman o[ the Black Panter party, a par- ticipant briefly in the negotia- tions at the prison: "They (Ihe officials) are guilty of murder The besl Ihing lo do would be lo charge state Correction Com- missioner Russell Oswald anr Ihe others wilh firsl-degree out- righl mass murder." Activist lawyer William Kim- slier, who participalcd in the negotiations: "Today the stale of New York decided that force was of more value than human life and deliberately sacrificed both inmates and hostages lo Ihe principal of political expe- diency."

Acron from Paramount Tax favoritism hit by Saltsman OTTAWA (CP) To Prime Minister Trudcau Hie govern- ment while paper on taxation was a batch of wine that he had to water down and swallow with a smile. But NDP finance critic Max Saltsman suggested in the Com- mons Monday that Ihe diluted end-producl should he suit out instead. The House began second.read- ing debate on the government's bill to revamp Uie taxation structure, which was given first reading in June following the budget. When asked about the bill in a town meeting in Port Hope, Ont., last Friday, Mr. Trudeau said "we added a little water to the wine." The bill was neither as radi- cal or progressive as the white paper leading up lo it had beat, the prime minister said. But criticism had been forth- coming from the provinces, the public and pressure groups, and the government had decided the final bill represented Ihe best mix of policies. Mr. S a 11 s m a n was more harsh. He said Ihe government had "capitulaled completely" on real tax reform and had caved in to the wishes of "that very small group at the top." Although Mr. S a 11 s m a n 's views on taxation reform differ with those of Marcel Lambert, Conservative finance critic, he voiced support for an amend- ment offered by Mr. Lambert that would kill the gigantic bill. The proposed amendment, which survived a lengthy proce- dural scuffle, would have the House decline second reading "to a bill which does not pro- vide sufficient stimulus to the economy with appropriate tax oils and incentives, does nol contain adequate tax ex- emptions and is nol calculated to materially Improve business and labor conditions." Mr. Saltsman said that when the government came out with its white paper the NDP had kept relatively quiet because it had seen hope for at least some lax reform. But all hopes for reform had disappeared when the govern- ment had later presented this "thoroughly-bad legilation." Debate on the bill, which will continue uxlay, is cxpecled to last at least a month, including committee-of-lhe-whole consid- eration. Mr. Bailsman said the bill was still loader1 in favor of in- dustries that stripped off Uie country' raw materials. Such industries were favored over manufacturers who created more jobs. The argument is identical lo that former Liberal Minister Eric Kierans has made since quitting the cabinet last spring. Mr. Trudeau also said Friday he liked Mr. Kierans' economics but not his politics. Pressure groups had raised a "helluva Mr. Trudeau said, when the while paper proposed lo cul back on concessions to non-re- newable resource industries. The bill takes a much more gradual approach in that direc- tion, culling off oil and gas de- pletion allowances in 1976 and replacing Ihe three-year lax hol- iday for new mines with speed- ed-up depreciation write-offs. Mr. Bailsman said favoritism for extractive industries repre- sented "national suicide." Despite all the government tub-thumping about reducing taxes lor people with lower in- comes, the member from Wa- terloo said, many of these peo- ple will end up paying more taxes. Medical can! insurance prem- iums paid by an employer wjuld be taxable. So would un- employment insurance benefits, which Mr. Sallsman said could be a heavy blow to seasonal workers. Veterans' pensions inadequate EDMONTON (CP) Pen- sions and allowances for Can- ada's veterans and de- pendents are still inadequate, Cliff Chadderton, execulive- secretary of Hie War Ampula- tions of Canada, said Monday night. Disabled veterans have two reasons to be dissatisfied with recent pension increases, Mr. Chnddcrton said in a banquet speech during the group's 33rd convention. He said tho basic pension for a single, 100-per-cent disabled veteran In tho Uniled Stales is 00. "Our basic rntc Is We ore suggesting that we split (lie difference. Give the Cana- dian 100 per cent pensionoi-s half Ibis Jilmosl differ- ence and bring him vp lo 550, and wo will be satisfied." Mr. Lamberl said the bill was belter I Ivan the while paper, which had prompted "wave upon wave of protest." But the government had done great damage lo the economy by taking so long to lessen some of Ihe fears of the business com- munity. "The economy of this country has been llirough IB months of convulsions, and now the gov- ernment has come back along Ihe same general pain in its re- turn to a Ijtlle sanily." He said increased tax exemp- from for a single person and to from for a married couple- could have been better achieved through a system of tax credits. The 5850 extra for a couple would be of greater benefit to a family with a laxable income ol than those with an in- come of Mr. Lambert said some tax. payeis will gain more than they lose afler Ihe government drops estate taxes, because Ihey now would be faced wilh capital gains tax. Under the bill a person will be taxed on half his capital gains, wilh write-offs provided for cap- ital losses. Revenue Minister Herb Gray said a main goal of tax reform has been to achieve a federal system that Ihe provinces will accept. This legislation reflected many of the important repre- sentations trade by the prov- inces following the publication of the while paper. "The period since the budget was presented has shown that a good consensus about lax re- form had developed in Canada, and I submil that this consensus is reflected in the bill." Growers want union PENTICTON (CP) Brit- ish Columhia's 3.200 interior fi-uit growers voted Monday at an emergency meeting to study formation of a union as a way to gain legal power to tie up or halt imports of foreign fruit. Delegates lo the B.C. Fruit Growers Association meeting advised the executive to under- take tho study and report to the annual meeting in Januaiy. The million a year indus- try has gone through two years of poor prices to growers, with prospects for this year almost as had. But a resolution call- ing for a hold-back oE apples and D'Anjou pears for mini- mum prices of eight and 10 cenls a pound, respectively, was defeated unanimously. Ap- ple prices averaged only 4'i cents a pound last year. Growers said a union would have enabled them to complete- ly flop Australian fruit from entering Canada last spring. As it was, growers' picket lines in Vancouver were purely in- formational. Avery King of Penticlon told the growers: "If you think our problems are serious now. Wait a few years when China wants a place in our market. China produces millions of boxes a year of apples. "It is our responsibility to protect our he said. "Let us form a union and get on with the job." YEN FOR BEER The Japanese drank hollies of beer in July of this year.
