News in brief Agnew resignation predicted WASHINGTON (Reuter) The Washington Post says Vice-President Spiro Agnew has been discussing the possibility of resigning and quotes one source as predict- ing that Agnew will probably resign this week. The Post says Agnew refus- ed comment on the report. The vice-president's staff and political supporters "express- ed strong skepticism that he would the story adds. It. quotes one senior Republican figure as saying he spent two hours last week trying in vain to argue the vice-president out of his deci- sion to resign. Agnew is among subjects of a federal investigation into corruption in Maryland, where he was governor from 1966 to 1968. The story quotes the Republican official as saying Agnew wants to resign because of the pressure on his family as a result of the investigation, and because President Nixon wants him to resign. Official sources were not available for comment on the report. Diefenbaker homestead sold HANOVER, Ont. J. Youngblood, a Fergus busi- nessman, has purchased the Diefenbaker homestead in Neustadt, six miles south of here, and plans to restore it as a historic site. Former prime minister John Diefenbaker. who has spent most of his life in Saskatchewan or Ottawa, was born in the Neustadt home Sept. 18, 1895, and he spent the first two years of his life in the brick home.

(CP) Collective bargaining, over the allotment of polar bear hunting licences to Eskimos, has come to the North. Commissioner Stuart Hodg- son, on a visit to Gjoa Haven during his annual tour of the Central Arctic, was told resi- dents of the community re- ceived only seven tags this year while their neighbors at Spence Bay got 22. The commissioner said he would try to correct the ineq- uity and arranged for representatives of the two communities and the senior wildlife officers at Cambridge Bay to find a more suitable distribution. "This is probably the first collective bargaining in the history of the Eskimo people." he said. A bear hide can bring a hunter about Also the tags are occasionally sold to outside hunters who then hire the Eskimos who sold it as a guide. Tory fight for action i on inflation decreases Indians threaten whites MONTREAL (CP) The leader of the militant Warrior Society said Monday his group plans to go ahead with its threat to physically evict any whites remaining on the Caughnawaga Indian reserve today. "Trucks will come to the homes of whites and take them and their belongings from the said Paul Deloronde, head of the society.

A bylaw permitting the Caughnawaga Iroquois band council to evict non-Indians from the reserve received ap- proval last week from Jean Chretien, minister of Indian affairs. About 40 non-Indian families have been ordered by the band council to leave the reserve by Oct. 18. in shootout dustrialist as Eugenio Garza Sada. 82. of Monterrey. He was chairman of the board of the Monterrey Industrial Group, which includes the Cuauternoc brewery, one of the largest in Latin America. By DAVE BLAIKIE OTTAWA (CP) There were indications Monday that the Conservative fight for more action on inflation is waning and that Parliament's summer recess could be resumed later this week. "The question now is whether there is any value in our staying." said Gerald Baldwin. Conservative House leader, as adjournment speculation mounted. Last week the Conser- vatives threatened to keep the Commons sitting indefinitely to try and force the minority Liberals to do more against rising prices. The New Democrats and the Liberals favor ad- journment, but the final deci- sion rests with the Conser- vatives, who will decide at caucus Wednesday. OPENED WAY Monday's all-day debate Was sparked by James McGrath John's East) who introduced a mo- tion calling for acceptance of a July report of the special Commons committee on food prices. The motion gave MPs a chance to speak on the almost limitless number of topics associated with inflation. The debate, largely a reiteration of points made in two all-day inflation debates last week, prompted Social Credit Leader Real Caouette to accuse the Conservatives of political grandstanding and of wasting Commons time. The debate produced one an- nouncement. Consumer Af- fairs Minister Herb Gray said the Packaging and Labelling Act. approved by Parliament in 1971, will become law by the end of the year. It will affect labelling and packaging practices for about domestic and im- ported products.

Throne DETROIT (AP) A weekly limit of 14 hours of mandatory overtime and retirement with full pension after 30 years on the job were keys to the agree- ment reached between Chrysler Corp. and the United Auto Workers (UAW) Mon- day. if approved by production workers at Chrysler, the agreement will end'the strike that began at midnight Friday night when the old contract expired.

Under the agreement, an employee cannot be forced to work more than nine hours a day or more than six days a week. Other major provisions of the three-year pact include wage increases of just more than five per cent in the first year and three per cent in the second and third years; more inspections of plants in a bid to make them safer; and an extra paid holiday, the day after Thanksgiving. Chrysler production workers now average an hour. The agreement also guaran- tees wage parity between Chrysler's United States and Canadian employees. About 12.000 Canadian workers now receive 11 cents an hour less. The UAW also won accep- tance of its demand for company-paid dentai in- surance, which will take effect in the second year of the contract. Chrysler will pay up to 10 cents an hour for each worker to finance coverage of dental costs. boring VICTORIA (CP) Boring, vague and self-congratulatory were the words used Monday in the British Columbia legislature by Liberal Leader David Anderson to describe the government's throne speech, which promised a better deal for farmers and a new code to govern labor- management relations. He said Premier Dave Barrett's government was long on glowing ideals but short on down-to-earth specifics. It was imitating the previous Social Credit government's practice of say- ing nothing in a great many words in the throne speech, he said. The New Democratic Par- ty "s aim of assisting agriculture is laudable, Mr. Anderson said, but he hoped the legislation Agriculture Minister Dave Stupich in- troduces into the legislature is better thought-out than the controversial Land Commis- sion Act of last session. CALGAKY The Al- berta Supreme Court Monday ordered Canada Safeway Ltd. to practise uniform pricing in Edmonton and Calgary for six years and restricted the num- ber of new stores the company may open in these cities. An order signed by Mr. Jus- tice W. K. Moore prohibited Safeway, a Winnipeg-based subsidiary of Safeway Stores Inc. of Oakland, Calif., from increasing its existing "total grocery building square footage" in either city for years starting Monday. The company may replace space it ceases to occupy. During the same SVz-year period.'Safeway may add one more exceeding 35.000 square each city. During the year following the first years, Safeway is permitted to open not more than two new stores in each city. Mr. Justice Moore's order said for six years, Safeway is prohibited from changing gro- cery prices for the purpose of meeting or undercutting com- petitors in Edmonton and Cal- gary unless the price changes are "applied uniformly and si- multaneously" by the food- store chain. WITHDREW TWO CHARGES Crown Prosecutor P. J. McCaffery, representing the federal government, withdrew two monopoly charges under the Combines Investigation Act after Mr. Justice Moore signed the order. If the monopoly charges had been prosecuted it "would in- volve the calling of some 800 witnesses and the introduction of some 9.000 to 10.000 docu- ments." Mr. McCaffery said during the hearing. "Since the preliminary in- quiry trial and likely appeals would be of abnormal duration, the final determina- tion of litigation would not be known until at the earliest sometime in 1975 or even much later." The charges under the act, which considers that a mo- nopoly, controlling the market for certain products is detri- mental to public interest, were laid against Safeway Oct. 11. 1972. The case had been remanded three times. There was no guilty plea or finding of guilt. "In this proceeding, there is no jurisdiction to convict of any offence under the Com- bines Investigation Act. nor is there jurisdiction to levy any monetary Mr. McCaffery said. The order prohibits Safeway from obtaining control or ac- quiring the shares or assets of any competitor engaged in the grocery business in either Ed- monton or Calgary for five years. The company also will be restricted in the amount of advertising it will be able to do until 1978. In his submission, Mr. McCaffery said the prohibi- tion on advertising would pre- vent the company "from engaging the sort of market saturating advertising which has characterized Safeway's marketing policy." Mr. van der Hoop said the hearing was unique in that "there was no plea of guilty by the defendant, nor is there ad- mission of an offence." "The original charge of mo- nopoly has been and will be defended by my client." A. G. Anselmo, Safeway's Prairie division manager, said the company and the Crown had been working on an agreement for some time "designed to avoid a lengthy arid costly court contest that will be counter-productive not only for the Crown and Safeway but for Canadian con- sumers as well." Mr. Anselmo said the agree- ment which was reached is in the interests of all parties and "the judge's order clearly de- termines the methods by which the agreement is to be implemented and does not need further elaboration."

If it stands, industry of- ficials and Wall Street analysts generally agree, the ruling from Judge A. Sherman Christensen of the United States district court is likely to draw new companies into some parts of the business and reshape its whole competitive structure. The judge, in a ruling sent from his Salt Lake City office to the U.S. district court in Tulsa where he heard the case, ordered IBM, the world's largest computer- maker, to pay Telex million in damages. He also instructed IBM to make some changes in its pricing procedures and to dis- close additional information about new products when it announces them. "The decision foretells a different market in the com- puter said Lester Kilpatrick, president of California Computer Products Inc. Judge Christensen set a hearing for Oct. 16 to consider motions for a new trial. And IBM responded quickly to the announcement of the decision with an announcement that it would appeal. As a result of a countersuit by IBM, Telex was ordered to pay IBM million for in- fringement of IBM-copyright manuals and for hiring IBM employees to get trade secrets from them. In view of the likelihood of continuing court action, some observers said it might be pre mature to draw any conclusions about the impact of the ruling. The opening of trading in the issues was delayed for several hours Monday as investors received the news of the ruling. By the close of Monday's trading. IBM had skidded 26 points from Friday's close to a drop of about nine per cent. Telex stock and warrants- rights to buy Telex common at a even more dramatically. The stock rose 79 per cent, or 3% points, to close at a share on the New York Stock Ex- change.
