Mr. Justice Jean-Paul ron said continual inlerrupllona by the accused made it "impossible to hear testimony" and asked guards to remove Lortie "until such time as he agrees to regain his calm." It was the first time since his trial began late Monday that Lortie, IS, a student from the Gaspc, had raised his voice or even acknowledged Lhat a trial was in progress. The accused was expelled shortly after a statement ha made to police last Nov. read at a coroner's inquest the following H-HS accepted as evidence at the trial. ORDERED REMOVED Lortie asked the- court to "slop this nonsense" and said "there is no justice m Quebec." He continued the outburst until the judge ordered hirr removed. The judge said Lortie will be provided with a transcript of all proceedings while he is out of the courtroom. Mr. Justice Bergeron accepted the Lortie statement as evidence after it was identified by Judge Jacques Trahan, who presided as coroner at the inquest of Mr. Laportc's death. Judge Trahan testified that Lortie had declined to ask for the protection of the court at the inquest, which would have prevented the use of the statement in subsequent proceedings. m Toroi delini TORONTO (CP) ronto stock mar fractionally in nit morning trading to tered a second coi clining session.

He said persons found jobs through five programs operated by his department. Because each welfare recipient has an average of three dependents, it meant persons were struck from welfare rolls, h said. Mr. Gaglardi made his stat-ment at a news conference neld hours before a scheduled meeting of a four man cabinet committee set up last week by Premier W. A. C. Bennett to find jobs for the unemployed. Mr. Gaglardi is not a member of the committee, presided over by Municipal Affairs Minister Dan Campbell. Mr. Gaglardi told reporters the premier copied his idea in announcing the com m i 1 1 e e which he said he fully support-ed. "The greatest amount of flattery anybody can get is to be he said. The Campbell committee Is to administer an employment subsidy plan under which the government will pay half Ihe wages for persons who have been on welfare three months before finding a job.

It opened at 5.340-5.350 francs on the free market, down from 5.345-5.353 at Tuesday's close. This gave the franc an upward revaluation of about 3.9 per cent.

"I hope that things will come to fruition one of these days but there are all kinds of things lo be conscious he said in an interview. Major safeguards under discussion are the ratio of cars produced to cars sold; the Canadian value-added clause and "what I call ter Pepiu privilege, where only the manufacturers can import under the tariff-free agreement on our side." Not discussed, at least yet, are minimum production levels, imposition of ceilings and the setting of new targets. Mr. Pepin said that if any of-Ihe safeguards ever are eliminated or suspended "we should use (lie occasion to try and improve the agreement if at all possible." A number of tilings could be done to strengthen and widen the agreement which would benefit both countries, he said, but did not specify them. Mr. Pepin said the Canadians place greater importance in the safeguards than the Americans do because "we have had very few levers in this agreement, in the sense that the ownership is in Ihe United States, the decisions are made in Detroit, the styling, the parts purchasmg are done in the States."

Edith stil NEW YORK (AP) Tropical Storm Edilh edged slightly away from the Texas coast today, out into warm Gulf of Mexico waters where she could rapidly regain hurricane force, and became a threat to Louisiana. Texans, still mired in the floodwaters of tropical I threat Fern, breathed easier as the one-time killer hurricane made her small change of course in the weak steering currents over the gulf. "Edith is moving toward conditions in which she could again become a hurricane by said Dr. Robert H. Simpson, director of Uie Na-ional H u r r i c a ne Centre in Miami. "The most vulnerable area now is from Matagorda Bay, Texas, eastward to the central Louisiana coast." Once a 175-mile-an-hour hurricane. Edilh took a heavy toll in three countries, Nicaragua and Spanish and British Honduras. Badly weakened in Uie land crossing, she had been slow to regain strength over Ihe Gulf. THREAT TO TEXAS But in Texas, where thousands still remain homeless on Uie flooded coaslal plains of the Rio Grande Valley, her rains had offered a dangerous threat. In Pennsylvania, searchers recovered the bodies of nine persons drowned in floods Tuesday as Tropical Slorru Heidi died in Ihe North Atlantic. In a 6 a.m. bulletin, the National Weather Service said Edith had sustained winds of GO miles an hour and that conditions appeared favorable for her lo reach hurricane strength before nightfall. The storm was moving north at about 5 m.p.h. for a position 70 miles southeast of Brownsville. The weather service said Ilic centre of Edilh probably would maintain its track through the Gulf just off Texas for the next 12 (o 18 hours.
