Junkie's Fate CISt COS I Klll.tK i m mutiV it mm Scandal rocks Paris PARIS (Rcutcr) A former government otficial alleged to- day that he possessed 136 let- ters and official reports provid- ing corruption by 48 public French figures. Gabriel Aranda, 34-year-old former lop aide at the equip- ment ministry, wrote In a letter printed in Hie right-wing L'Aurorc: "If I had wanted to sell theso documents instead of making them public, for nothing, in tho general interest, I could have bought myself 10 lovely chat- eaux." Aranda's revelations, which broke on Hie public scene on Wednesday, are causing serious embarrassment to the French government who fear his alle- gations might blow into a ma- jor scandal, damaging Gaullist chances in forthcoming general elections.

"The reality is that It Is eas- ier to invent things, or to worry about my health than lo deny the exactness of official docu- ments proving, unhappily, tho existence of formidable scan- dals and he wrote. "Moreover, I charitably warn all those who are worrying about my health that my friends and I possess 136 docu- ments signed letters and offl clal reports concerning tho small and big combines of 48 public he added. Aranda's explosive threat to publish what he knew first ap- peared In the satirical weekly Canard Enchaine In the form of a copy of a letter from a Gaullist party leader to for- mer equipment minister Albin Chalandon asking for a high- vay contract lo be given to i articular company. Aranda said Chalandon re- ected the request. On Wednesday, Aranda said ne would not publish his docu- ments if the government cut off delivery of Mirage jets to He said he found "the jresent French policy of deliv- ering arms to fanatical Arab nations scandalous." Nov 254 li Dec May 257V4 Oats Oct Dec. 252% 253% 247 V4 247% 257 83% 83% EDMONTON (CP) Increas- ed production and marketing opportunities for Alberta farm- ers should he realized as a re- sult of recent discussions be- tween Japanese government and trade officials and an Al- berta economic mission to Japan, Hugh Horner said here. Mr. Horner, deputy premier and provincial agriculture min- ister, said in a news release the agriculture talks were time- ly because the Japanese were interested in investing in for- eign countries to reduce the trade surplus as well as to in- crease imports. HABITS CHANGING Japanese eating habits are changing rapidly and the con- sumer is demanding high qual- ity food products that Alberta producers can supply, he said. Demand for beef, pork and honey increases about 20 per cent a year. Because of limited production and technical resources, dom- estic production is unable to keep pace with the increasing demand. It is estimated that by 1975 Japan will increase its beef im- ports by tons andi its pork imports by tons, Mr. Horner said. If Alberta could supply only a small part of tbe market it would be sufficient to provide farmers with significant expan- sion and assurance of income stability. The Japanese were also con- cerned about pollution and therefore interested in joint ventures in Alberta in the agri- culture processing sector. Looking a specific products, Mr. Horner sees Alberta pork holding the greatest potential for increasing la the Japanese market. 85 May Jly Barley Oct. 125V4 8356 83V4 8314 8414 Beef futures WINNIPEG bee] futures close Friday.
