J. Greene clearing the wa: for his company to sell uranium holdings to foreign interests came as no surprise. "It simply confirms our Nor ember, 1969, M. M. Edi ger said. In a statement released at Ot tawa Friday, Mr. Greene sak four foreign-owned companies Brinex Ltd., Consoli dated Canadian Faraday Corp and Kerr-McGee go ahead with a transfer of in terests in Canadian uranium properties to foreign owners. A spokesman for Denises Mines Ltd. of Toronto, which also has plans to sell uranium property but was not named, said Denison was Mr. Greene said he made the He Knows His Limit HAMILTON (CP) He had had three drinks, usually his limit, but he felt hardly any effect. He had three more and still didn't feel anything. So a Hamilton man snatched up his six swizzle slicks and went to the police to complain that the tavem was doctoring his drinks "I know my the man said. "I can't handle any more than three vodkas, but I had six swizzle sticks in front of me so I knew something was wrong." He said ho went to Hie po- lice and asked for a breath analysis test to see whether liis suspicions were correct, and was told he couldn't have one because he hadn't done anything wrong. He (hen decided to make a complaint so the Liquor Con- trol Board of Ontario would investigate tire matter. Constale H. N. Taylor of the traffic department said there isn't time for the police lo give a test to anyone who just walks in and asks for announcement to clarify the po- sition of the four companies, which wore awaiting promised government regulations on for- eign ownership of uranium re- sources. STARTED EARLY The four began negotiations for transfers before restrictions were imposed on major transac- tions by a government policy statement March 2. Mr. Greene said the forthcom- ing legislation has not been cast in its final form but will incor- porate rules proclaimedin March that no more than one- third of uranium-producing property should be foreign owned. The ownership issue came to a head early this year when Denison announced plans to sell controlling interest in its Elliot Lake, Ont., uranium property to Hudson's Bay Oil and Gas Co., a U.S.-controlled firm. The sale was blocked by the March policy statement. Stephen Roman, Denison president, said Friday he would not comment before reading the government statement, but a spokesman for Denison said: We are shocked." He said the minister appeared to be making different sets of rules for foreign and domestic companies. Mr. Roman told a sharehold- ers' meeting earlier Friday they should write to the government o protest the blocked sale. The foreign ownership regula- ions "clearly only apply to considering the lact hat the government has al- owed Gulf to enlist West Ger- man participation, he said. Spokesmen for the other three companies named in Mr. Greene's announcement could not be reached for comment Friday. Mr. Ediger said thj deal his company made calls for trans- er of 49 per cent of the com- 'any's Rabbit Lake develop- ment near Wollaston Lake in Vorthcrn Saskatchewan lo Ura- icrzbergbau GMBH of' West icrmany. He said the transfer was part f a marketing deal Gulf's par- :nt company, Gulf Oil Corp. of lie United States, made wilh the West German firm. By ANDREW WALLER MOSCOW (Reuters) Si. years after he became leader o the Soviet Communist party, Lc onid Brezhnev seems more lha ever the first among equals in the Kremlin's collective leader ship. At the same point in his car eer as party chief, .Brezhnev' predecessor, N i k i t a Khrush- chev, had already fought and won his battle with an "anti party" group of Kremlin vet- erans opposed to his rule. Brezhnev has strengthenet his position without such violent upheavals. Now 63, the burly ex-steel- worker who owed his rise to Khrushchev, is a jovial and ex- pensive character. Foreign dip- lomats who have seen him at dose quarters recently say he appears to be clearly in com- mand. Communist party journals write less now about the need for collective leadership than they did in the months after Oc- tober, 196J, when Brezhnev be- came the party's first secretary in place of Khrushchev. His present title is general-secre- tary. It is possible, even probable, that Brezhnev and Premier Al- exei Kosygin do not always agree. But there has never been any open hint of a clash, and the two men's spheres of action are relatively well defined. Kosygin took over as head of the Soviet government from the ousted Khrushchev, who for nearly six years had headed both the party and the govern- ment. Since 1964, these functions have been kept strictly sepa- rate, although the "leading role" of ths Communist party in every branch of Soviet life is unquestioned. Kosygin has the task of run- ning the economy, but basic pol- icies and the real mechanics of power remain as always the preserve of the party. Brezhnev, who took Joseph Stalin's old title of general-sec- retary in 1966, has steadily built up for himself an image as the foremost among the politburo leaders. It is Brezhnev who is quoted in newspaper editorials, much more often than Kosygin. If Brezhnev goes abroad with the premier, it is he who heads the delegation. Guerrilla Defeat Appears Certain WASHINGTON (AP) United Stales military officials predict it is only a matter time before the Palestinian guerrillas, outmanned and ou1 gunned, are defeated by Jor dan's royal army of fiercely loyal Bedouin tribesmen. Equipped with British ant American arms, King Husssin armed force of about men is regarded by U.S. defence de- partment officials as the best in the Arab world and second in the Middle East only to the Is raelis.

GLOBAL CONFORMITY SYDNEY, Australia (Reuters) American soldiers from Viet- am spent an estimated 45 mil- on Australian dollars while on est and recreation leave here uring the last few years. Most the money was spent in the entertainment district here many places now have ames like the Arizona Inn, the exas Tavern, and the Bourbon nd Beefsteak. On the other side is a dividec guerrilla force believed to have no more than men under arms. The unknown factors, officials here say, are the Iraqis with troops stationed in Jor dan, and the Syrians poised above Jordan's northern border "Should they intervene, the balance could tip against Hus- said one official: "But no cne expects that to happen." KING HESITATED For more than two years, Hussein hesitated using force against the Palestinian com- mandos despite their increased criticism and attacks against the king because of his pro- Western attitude and moderate course in dealing with Middle East problems. The mass hijacking two weeks ago of four Western airliners by the Popular Front for the Liber- ation of Palestine became Hus- sein's turning point. His army was known to be near revolt after the embarrass- ment of being force to sit idle while the commandos dealt with the Western world for the re- lease of the captive airline pas- sengers. Hussein was left with little choice. It was either lose his army or his throne, Middle East experts say, or act against the guerrillas. Japan Visit For Strom TOKYO (Reuters) Premier larry Strom of Alberta arrived lere today for a six-day visit to Japan. Strom arrived mainly to open lie Alberta government's new rade office in Tokyo. The opening of the province's irst representative office in Asia is expected to be an- nounced at a reception sched- uled in Tokyo next Thursday. Strom is also scheduled to confer with Premier Eisaku Sato next Tuesday. He will meet Japanese busi- ness leaders nest Monday when he visits the Federation of Eco- nomic Organizations, an eco- nomic body representing lead- ing Japanese companies.

"I find there is a growing dis- illusionment wilh the govern- ment, and Trudeaumania seems to be receding in some parts cf the country." Ths challenge for the NDP is to gel out and lake the initiative and "get it across lo Uie public that the government has done nothing." "Never was there a beiter case to be presented to the Ca- nadian is a do-no- thing government." STALEMATE DEVELOPED Clifford A. Section, party sec- retary, said in his report to the meeting that if the opinion polls are to be believed "a stalemate seems to have developed." He said a situalon of ccctinu- ing inflation, rising unemploy- ment and depressed economic conditions would have been ex- pected to result in a shifting of political alliances. Party President Allan Blake- ney, said the party is in a much improved financial situation largely because "we're not doing the job we should be doing." He said more financial help should be going out lo regions rith minima! support and a war chest should be well under way for the next fcdsral cam- paign. Mr. Douglas said that next April's leadership convention, when he will be replaced as leader, must be made "one of :he most momentous in our his- tory." The enthusiasm must carry over to ths next general election, probably in 1872. "It's the greatest opportunity we've had for a long said :he party leader.
