The proposed legislation, which would give western 1< !-m- crs a special pay- ment to make lip for cancella- tion of the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act, has drawn steady fire from Conservatives and New Democral.s since ils inlro- I d u c 11 o n in the House last [March. Debate on the bill continues today. The opposition got a running start Tuesday as Conservative House Leader Gerald W. Bald- win sought to have the Com- mons debate a motion to im- peach Liberal cabinet ministers for not making payments to farmers under the reserves act. No monthly payments have been made under the act, as the law requires, since July, 1970. The stabilization bill would can- U.S. import tax stays-Connally WASHINGTON (AP) Treasury Secretary John B. Connally says the NLxon admin- istration will keep the 10-per- New election called lor by Senate SAIGON (Renter) The South Vietnamese Senate called on the government today to or- ganize new presidential elec- tions. A resolution passed at a spe- cial session of the chamber, called to debate the election in which President Nguyen Van Thicu is running alone for re- said non-contested election ''would cause disaster for South Vietnam" if carried Ihrr.'llgh. The vole has only the power o[ a recommendation and is not binding on the president. It was by 28 out of the 31 senators present in the 60- seat chamber. The remaining three abstained. The election, tire resolution .siid. is "creating unfavorable reaction both at home and abroad." If the one-man vote goes through, the government will be unable lo lead the country and youth Vietnam will be unable to survive, it said. "We call on the leadership to accept the responsibilities in face of the survival of the na- tion and to respond to the will of the people as well as respect the higher interests of the coun- the senators said. "We call on the concerned au- thtiri'ies to reorganize the presi- d e n t i a 1 and vice-presidential elections in accordance with current democratic it said. Despite criticism, Thieu has shown his determination to go through with the Oct. 3 elcrtio" and has placed the blame for it being non-contested at the feet of his two opponents who with- drew.

Connally appeared Tuesday before a closed session of the House of Representatives ways and means committee amid re ports President NLxon would in mid-October unveil his propos- als for what the administration calls Phase II of the new eco- nomic program. Nixon has not revealed what pclicy will be when the freeze ends Nov. 13. Connally said after the House session, however, the import tax would have to be kept in effect "pending further developments at least until they give us sub- slanlip" hope lhat the payments can be balanced over a period of years, a relatively short pe- riod." MEETS CONSUMERS Nixon met Tuesday with rep- resentatives of consumer organ- izations, the sixth of his sessions with major economic groups. The representatives told Nixon his post wage-price freeze stabilization program "better be to wage earners and that big business should share the economic sacrifice, a spokes- man said. The groups urged controls on interests, profits and dividends and asked for full participation in the program so consumers "once more will not be left hold- ing the bag." Nixon did not indicate what he will propose for Phase II. said Don S. Willner, president of the Consumer Federation of America.

But Speaker Lucien Lnmou- rcux ruled that no impeachment procedure exists under Com- mons rules. The impeachment argument lasted for 90 minutes, delaying the question period and included references lo the last British 1D05. Privy Council President Allan MacEachen, government House leader, drew loud Liberal laughs when he said the only impeachment of modern times was in I9G7, when former prime minister John Diefenbaker was replaced as leader of the Con- servative party. After the impeachment ruling, debate resumed on the stabiliza- tion bill for the first time since the Commons returned from summer recess Sept. 7. The bill wculd set up a stabili- zation fund by having farmers pay in two per cent of their gross income and having the government contribute twice that amount. When farm re- ceipls fell below normal, pay- ments would be made from the fund. Opposition MP.s repeated many of the same criticisms they have made in previous de- bates. John Skoberg Jaw) and Jack Homer (PC- Crowfoot) said the plan should be based on net income, not gross income. They said rising farm costs would make in-ade- quate any plan which stabilizes gross income. Rod Thomson ford-Kindcrsley) agreed that farmers are caught in a cost- price squeeze. He said the gov- ernment should set up a two- price system for wheat, linking Lhe price of wheat sold in Can- ada to Ihc cost of production. Les Benjamin 5ina-Lake Centre) said Otto Lang, minister responsible for Canadian wheat board, lacks support from his Liberal colleagues in refusing to put measures in the bill to counter- balance increases in costs ol production. The only Liberal speaker was Jerry Pringle (Frascr Valley who accused opposition speakers of trying to confuse farmers. The bill is a fair and proper start toward stabilizing farm income, he said.

"There is no reference made in the entire course of study of a medical doctor that would even remotely qualify him to manipulate the spinal column." j Dr. Lundgren said the A1.-1 berta Chiropractic Associatir supports its members having. basic health knowledge. "For years, chiropractors have been referring directly to medical practitioners, based on the problems of inflation and unemployment. The U.S. efforts to combat in- flation and unemployment were criticized earlier by Joseph Ames of Washington, D.C., sec- retary-treasurer of the Ameri- can Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. Mr, Ames said his govern- ment's policies to halt inflation are inadequate and arc too late to be of use. The country's major problem now was ils five million unemployed workers. Among resolutions passed Tuesday was one stating that the right to negotiate with em- ployers when technological changes tlireaten job security is a necessity for unions. The resolution said that Bill C-253, which if passed would amend the Labor Relations Act, does not adequately provide this bargaining right. Keely Cummings of Toronto, a general vice president of CUPE, said the Frecdman re- port, offered the host solution. The report recommended that union members have the right to protect themselves through negotiation when technology or change in work methods threat- ens job security. It was commissioned during railway union unroot following a cutback in some passenger service. He said the report suggested lhat an employer halt any ac- tions within his business involv- ing technological change if his requested negotia- .r-is.

Hearing aid, drug costs may be cut REGINA (CP) The Saskat. chewan and Manitoba health departments will work together to try to provide less costly hearing aids and drugs to per- sons living In the two provin- ces, Health Minister Walter Smishek said Tuesday. Legal costs insurance plan studied BANFF (CP) A group in- surance plan to meet legal costs could be in the future of Alberta service station and re- pair shop operators. Tevie MiUar, solicitor for the Automotive Retailers Associa- tion, told the annual meeting such a scheme has been con- sidered for the last year and could be the first in Canada. It is patterned alter a plan now in operation in New York. If adopted, members of the retailers association would pay a regular monthly premium and receive free legal service on matters pertaining to their business. "The root of the problem Is that many small business men have the view that they cannot afford legal service. This would be a way to make it available to them. "For example, the minimum legal fee for incorporating a business is Just by doing that a member could justify his premiums for four or five years." The association was also told that the public image of the auto repair industry is less than satisfactory. E. F. Ewing of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology sari this is partly because of a lack of communication and partly because techniques need improvement. Mr. Smishek said the two NDP governments, through an agreement between himself and Manitoba Health Minister Kene Toupin, soon will estab- lish inter provincial consulta- tive committees to start work on joint health studies and pro- grams with an aim to reducing costs of such iltms as hearing aids and drugs. Approaches will be made to other provinces to participate. The current cost of hearing aids ranges from SOS to with the average cost of a unit about Mr. Smishek said two British made hearing aids, tested by the Canadian National Re- search Council, compare very favorably in quality with 200 others from various North Am- erican sources. The cost of each British model is less than and one Japanese type costs less than He said a comparison of Ihese figures indicates "an un- conscionable level of profit- taking in this industry." Mr. Smishek offered the pos- sibility of bulk buying of aids for distribution to the consum- er at near cost prices. The two NDP ministers also have made plans tio work to- gether on the problems of cost- ly drugs. Consideration will be given to a joint drug purchas- ing program and the establish- ment of a drug formulary to greatly reduce the price of drugs, Mr. Smishek said. Larry Cavanagh, vice-presi- dent of the Saskatchewan Hear- ing Aid Dealers Association, said Mr. Smiskek's announce- ment fell like a "bombshell and could mean the end of the hearing aid business." He said the association has for some lime tried to get talks going with Mr. Smishek on his plant to provide low- cost hearing aids. "But obviously he has de- cided to go ahead without any consultations."
