Tie jury said Garry Guay died in a city ditch alter a drinking party in which young people were taking the pills, thinking they were hal- lucinogenic drugs. His body was not found for months. The inquest was told the youth wandered away from the party, fell into the ditch and cracked his skull. Coroner Dr. Joe Storcer criti- cized four companions for not spending enough, time looking for him. "He may have been hurt bad- ly and he could maybe have been found in time. I hope if I'm lost my friends do better by me than that." The companions said they searched the area briefly, and assumed their friend had gone home. Tourism Chief Urges Canadians To Stay Home TORONTO (CP) Quebec's tourism minister said Friday Canadians should spend their vacations more often in Canada instead of leaving the country. Claire Kirkland-Casgrain, speaking at a dinner to cele- brate the 60th anniversary of the Toronto Business and Pro- fessional Women's Club, said Canadians are among the world's irost-travelled people. "They spend ir.ffre money out- side the country than is drawn by tourists into the she said. Ste said as a result there has been a deficit in the balance of trade in Canadian tourism. A possible solution to the problem would be greater tour- ism promotion by Canadian provinces, Mrs. Kirkland-Cas- grain said. 1971 LTD FORD Encouraging Turn For Peking Talks OTTAWA (CP) Talks be- tween Canada and China, aimed at establishing relations with the Peking regime, appear to have taken an encouraging turn. However, any agreement on establishing diplomatic relations is unlikely to come soon enough to affect Canada's vote at the United Nations on seating Com- munist China in the world or- ganization. Canada, which has abstained on annual UN China votes in re- cent years, would switch to a vote in favor only after agree- ment is reached on diplomatic between Ottawa and Peking. An external affairs spokes- man, commenting on a UN speech and press conference Friday by French Foreign Min- ister Maurice Schumann, agreed with Mr. Schumann's re- mark that China-Canada talks Stockholm had been going well. Prime Minister Trudeau said so on a U.S. television interview Wednesday and External Af- fairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said the same in August, after the last Stockholm meeting. Once diplomatic relations were established with Peking, Canada would pursue a list of outstanding issues with China in diplomatic exchanges, the spokesman said. The issues range from the possibility of Chinese compensa- tion for ships seized 20 years ago and the prospects of ex- changing more journalists. A bill of almost 513 million is outstanding for nine shallow- draught cargo ships purchased on credit from Canada by a Chinese firm after the Second World War and seized soon aft- erwards when the Communists took over. Purchase of the ships, de- signed for use on inland" anc coastal waters, was financed by three Canadian banks ant backed by the federal export credit agency. The government's export credits insurance corporation paid off the banks and is the creditor. Canada has arranged compen- sation for other such debts after establishing relations formally Notably, a small debt to Canada owed by Bulgaria was settled following establishment of rela- tions between the two govern- ments in 1968.
