Union sets sights on Ford nanv ran "live with the DETROIT (AP) The United Auto Workers expressing confidence that striking Chrysler membership will give overwhelming ap- proval to new contract propos- als, set their sights today on talks with Ford. UAW Vice-President Ken Bannon said Thursday he in- tends "to drive for a settle- ment at Ford just as soon as possible." Ford officials have said pri- vatelv they believe the com- pany can "live with (Chrysler) settlement." The Chrysler pact included conditional voluntary over- time provisions and a company-supported dental plan Malcolm Denise, Ford vice- president for labor relations, said he hopes an agreement can be reached "without a strike deadline being set." UAW officials have made no announcement of a deadline. Sextuplets hard to tell apart Allmand wants minority groups on parole board Press wanted at meeting of MONTREAL (CP) The Canadian Federation of Mayors and Municipalities in- sists "strongly and un- animously" that the federal conference, to be held in Ed- monton Oct 22-23, be open to the press, the federation's president said Thursday. Mayor Bud Bird of Fred- ericton told a meeting of the federation's 45-man board of directors that "the citizen of Canada should be the judge of the value of any such conference." A similar conference held in Toronto last November was closed to the news media. By PETER LLOYD OTTAWA (CP) Solicitor- General Warren Allmand told the Commons Thursday he hopes representatives of minority groups will become Embargo on air freight Indians face two charges MONTREAL (CP) Air Canada has placed a 48-hour embargo on all air freight in- to, out of. or through Montreal because of a backlog at Montreal Inter- national Airport, the airline announced Thursday The embargo is to be in effect from 8 p.m. Thursday until 8 p.m Saturday. Air Express, live perishables and some traffic from Europe and the United States are excluded from the embargo, the airline an- nounced. An airline spokesman said the airline received a "tremendous amount of cargo" during the national rail strike which ended earlier this month, and is still dealing with a backlog despite the return to work of the rail workers. 'Hassle power' approved CALGARY (CP) A begg- ing bylaw giving police "has- sle power'" was approved Thursday by the city Police Commission. Commission Chairman Jack Prothroe said although the bylaw does not give city police the power of arrest, "it'll give them hassle power." The bylaw, which must receive final approval from city council, is aimed at preventing panhandlers from plying their trade on the city's streets. Alderman Don Hartman, a commission member, propos- ed the bylaw because he said a number of complaints had been received about people being bullied for cash in the downtown area. The commission agreed to urge the Kirby Commission, currently studying the func- tions of the lower courts, to add power of arrest to future panhandling legislation.

Phone Dennis Wilford 654-2221 or Rod Macdonald 654-2054 MONTREAL (CP) Four members of the militant War- rior Society are to appear in court Oct 2 on charges brought about Thursday from complaints by residents of the Caughnawaga Indian reserve. Paul Delaronde, Sandor Rice. Peter Jacobs and Julien Delaronde were charged with mischief and intimidation after some society supporters attempted to evict non- Indians from the reserve earlier this week Judge Rene Drouin signed summons for their appearance after receiving complaints from Chief Ronald Kirby and four reserve residents. Maximum penalty on the charges is six months in jail, a fine or both. Persons ordered off the re- serve said they were threaten- ed with "physical action" if they did not leave. Eviction notices were dis- tributed to 100 non-Indian families by the 40-member Warrior Society. PROTECTION PROVIDED RCMP protection was ac- corded Leon Giasson Tuesday after he refused to sign a pledge to move from the re- serve Mr. Giasson and Jean-Guy Meloche took the legal actions against Paul Delaronde and Rice. Mrs. Jean Delorme com- plained of mischief in the case of Julien Delaronde while Rene Giasson made the in- timidation complaint against Jacobs. The warrior Society has been leading a movement to evict most of the 700 non- Indians from the reserve.

Replace Queen's cipher By PETER LLOYD OTTAWA (CP) The Queen's personal cipher, ER II, has been removed from the coat of arms on mail boxes and postal vehicles because it was being used improperly, a post office spokesman said Thursday. "It was used in error before. It represents her personal initials and we must have her consent to use it." The cipher has been replac- ed by a maple leaf, but other royal symbols on postal boxes and vehicles are unchanged by the post office's new paint schemes. The paint schemes are a code to separate local and national mail. Former prime minister John Diefenbaker Albert) asked sardonically in the Commons Thursday whether the cipher and the words Royal Mail were removed from the boxes and trucks "to exemplify the new devotion of the govern- ment to the Queen." He asked Prime Minister Trudeau whether the removal had been at the order of the cabinet or merely the post office. Mr. Trudeau said he could not recall any removal of royal symbols being discussed by the cabinet but he would consult Andre Ouellet, postmaster-general, who was not in the House at the time. If the government had in- tended to remove royal sym- bols it would not have invited the Queen to Canada, the prime minister said. The post office spokesman denied Mr. Diefenbaker's claim that the words Royal Mail have been removed from mail boxes. The words never appeared on the boxes, he said. Both postal boxes and vehicles continued to display the Canadian coat of arms, with the vehicles also bearing the words Royal Mail. part of an expanded parole board. His comment came during second-reading debate of a bill to expand the board to 19 from nine members. The debate, with the probable resumption today of Parliament's summer recess, will not resume until at least Oct. 15. Mr. Allmand said minorities should be included on the board to reflect the composi- tion of prison populations. Indians and Eskimos, six per cent of the national pop- ulation, comprise about 25 per cent of jail and penitentiary prisoners, he said. The increased membership is intended to ease the backlog of parole applications and put more humanity into parole decisions. FEW ATTENDED Debate on the bill was sparsely attended as MPs pre- pared to return to their con- stituencies for the remainder of the summer recess, curtail- ed Aug. 30 when Parliament was recalled to end the national rail strike. Adjournment today is almost certain because of a Conservative announcement Thursday night that they will not oppose a government ad- journment motion Mr. Allmand said parole ap- plications now were being considered through an ex- amination of the prisoner's file without "the benefit of a face-to-face interview." The 10 additional members would be assigned equally to the board's five ad- ministrative Columbia, the Prairies, On- tario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces. Frank Howard (NDP- Skeena) drifted from his par- ty's position in announcing he was "not disposed to sup- porting the bill." He said the bill was "a small step in the wrong direc- tion" because it concentrated on parole processes rather than providing help to prisoners once they were released. Increasing the number of board members, he said, will change neither the number of parole applications nor the eu- ccess rate of parolees adapting to life outside prison. Hotcakes Prints of original et- chings, lithographs and woodcuts by such artists as Picasso, Chagall and Renoir were selling like hotcakes at the Univer- sity of Lethbridge Thurs- day. The university art de- partment termed the ex- hibition of contemporary and old master original graphic art by the Ferdi- nand Roten Galleries of Baltimore, Md., very suc- cessful, with about worth of prints sold to some of the several hun- dred people who came to have a look. As the spon- sor of the exhibition, the U of L got a percentage of the sale in this case about worth of graphic works for its own collection._________ Start probe on Chinese smuggling NEW YORK (CP) Immi- gration authorities said Thurs- day they are investigating the smuggling into the United States from Canada of 18 or more Chinese aliens from the Montreal area. Eighteen Chinese have been caught in the New York area and others may still be at large. The officials said the Chinese are believed to have received non-immigrant visas, good for visitor's privileges only, from the Canadian embassy in Hong Kong in recent weeks. They are known to have landed at Dorval airport in Montreal recently and to have been smuggled across the bor- der in the Champlain, N.Y., area on or about Friday, Sept. 14. In a telephoned interview, Edward Wildblood, deputy re- gional director for immigra- tion operations at Burlington, Vt., said his division is work- ing on the case with Canadian immigration authorities, the RCMP and Quebec Provincial Police. DENVER, Colo. (AP) "If they put them all together I wouldn't know which was which, except for says the mother of the Stanek sextuplets. Catherine is the lone girl among the five survivors. "I've only seen them once and, no, I can't tell them said Edna Stanek, 34, in her first meeting with reporters. "They're not too individual right she said Thur- sday. Looking tired but relaxed. Mrs. Stanek said: "I feel a lot better today because the news (about the children's health) has been so much more promising than it has been." Escaped prisoners recaptured NEW WESTMINSTER, B.C. (CP) Two prisoners at the British Columbia peniten- tiary, sought by police after they were reported to have es- caped over a fence Wednesday, were recaptured inside the prison walls shortly before midnight Thursday night. RCMP said the two prisoners, David Robert Trineer, 23, and Douglas Ronald Anderson, 38, were found in an old unused building on the prison grounds. Police said prison of- ficials, making another check of the building, discovered the men hiding in a hole un- derneath a cupboard. Earlier, the two men, both considered dangerous, were reported to have escaped by scaling a fence and making off in an automobile believed driven by a woman. Trineer is serving a life sen- tence for murder and Anderson a 12-year term for rape and robbery. Trineer was sentenced in 1968 for the slay- ing near Britannia Beach, B.C., of Rosie Vollet of Van- couver. Police said prison officials decided to make a complete search of the penitentiary Thursday night after being un- able to find evidence to sup- port the earlier information that the two prisoners had es- caped. They said the two men were equipped for a lengthy stay in their hideout. "In effect, they built a little sealed room for one official said, adding that the men had a good supply of food and candy in the hole to- gether with bedding and pil- lows. Deaths Detroit-Harry Wade, 70, for- mer editor of The Detroit News known for his "all hands evenly insulted" policy in his editorial comments on international baseball and politicis, relations, economics Beef men visit Alberta urged to drop two-price oil, gas fight WINNIPEG (CP) Izzy Asper, leader of the Manitoba Liberal Party, Thursday urg- ed Alberta to drop its fight for a two-price system for oil and natural gas in Canada. Mr. Asper told a news conference Albertans should remember they are Canadians first and Albertans second and should not impose a higher price on other Canadians for a "necessity." He said Alberta should take a larger view and accede to federal programs that are good for the whole country. "We bit our lip in Manitoba and accepted some restraints on the price of wheat and the price of beef. We don't like it but we realize it's the best policy for the whole of Canada." Twenty members of the Montreal beef trade began a five-day visit to Alberta Thur- sday. The men, representing the retail, wholesale, processing, feedlot and packing plant in- dustries, will visit farms, ranches, feedlots and packing plants in Alberta. They will hold direct, informal dis- cussions with Alberta beef producers On Saturday, the group will tour Hi-Way 52 Feeders near Raymond and view a carcass grading demonstration at Swift Canadian Co. Ltd. in Lethbridge. John and Jeffrey were in good condition Thursday night. Steven, Nathan and Catherine were in satisfactory condition and using respirators to help them breathe, said Dr. James Strain, a pediatrician at Colo- rado General Hospital. He said all five are improv- ing- The sextuplets were- born Sunday night, about six weeks prematurely. Julia died Tues- day night from hyaline membrane disease, which coats the lungs with a film. Mrs. Stanek described the children as "very frail" and said she had thought multiple birth is "the type of thing that always happens to someone else. It never happens to you." She said her main concern during pregnancy was whether her babies would sur- vive. Tests had shown she would have as many as six children. Asked whether she con- templated having more chil- dren, Mrs. Stanek said, "I don't think so. I think six will be plenty for a family." Mrs. Stanek and her husband, Eugene, 31, have one four- year-old son, Gregory. Soered raps gov't on job hirings VICTORIA (CP) A Social Credit MLA charged Thurs- day that the New Democratic Party government is creating a patronage ridden civil ser- vice by demoting numerous deputy ministers and hiring hacks" as replacements. Bob McClelland (SC Langley) said executive assistants and public relations people have isolated Premier Dave Barrett's ad- ministration. Mr McClelland said a farmer in his riding wanted to build a house on his farm. The MLA said he wrote to Resources Minister Bob Williams, responsible for .the' environmental landk secretariat, on behplf farmer last March 19. The farmer was having trouble getting a permit because of the freeze on use of farm land for subdivisions. Mr. McClelland said he got a two-sentence reply from Norman Pearson, Mr. Williams's executive assistant, saying the problem had been solved. It hadn't, said the MLA, so he wrote an angry letter back. This time the reply came trom the executive assistant's assistant, who apologized for the mistake. The second assis- tant said the letter had probably been written late at night, "like this one." Mr. McClelland said the tarmer still hasn't got his building permit. "There's nobody in charge that's the he said. He said the government's Land Commission Act has so "fogged up" zoning laws in the province that municipal councils are passing the buck to Victoria where 800 to 900 appeals for a decision have piled up SAND GRAVEL .ASPHALT.
