Herman In the occupied Golan Heights of Syria- New police program tagged down CALGARY (CP) Local wlice have approved a Good Samaritan program to give im- mediate relief to persons en- countering hardships. But they have found them- selves almost the first in line or assistance they don't lave enough funds to get the >roject going. The Calgary chapter of the nternational Police Association held a circus last summer to funds but gave away most of the proceeds to build a wading pool in a city park. The association, composed of city, railway, retired and form- er policemen, hopes to get the assistance program in opera- ion after another circus next 'ear or sooner if another source of revenue appears. Sgt Philip Crosby-Jones said he idea of the program is to avoid bureaucratic tangles in- volved with normal social ser- vice agencies. "The whole secret is to bring nstant relief in a crisis situa- ion." The program would help vic- imc of lires, crimes, accidents and similar misfortunes. By BOB MCCLELLAND EDMONTON (CP) Thi possibility of a split between the Canadian Labor Congress and its largest affiliate, the Cana dian Union of Public Employ ees, loomed Wednesday, fol lowing an emotional session a the CUPE annual convention. The dispute concerned juris diction over provincial govern ment employees. Delegates to the convention o the organization voted Wednesday to allow their executive to withhold contribu tions to the CLC if the dispute is not settled. The resolution said that de- spite an agreement that all pro- vincial government employees seeking union status must do so through CUPE, the CLC had openly encouraged direct affilia- tion with the congress. If CUPE withholds contribu- tions to its parent organization for three months, the congress charter provides for CUPE's au- tomatic expulsion. SAVS CHANGE MADE Until recently, the CLC told applicants for direct member- ship that they must join the CLC through a recognized affili ate with jurisdiction, said Shu- ley Can of Niagara Falls. Bui the CLC now is encouraging di rect affiliation of provincial env ployee associations with the congress, she added. "The purpose of labor unions is to get workers organized ant the CLC has no right to tell CUPE who it can or cannot or ganize." Jean Beaudry, executive vice-president of the CLC, sait passage of the resolution coulc create a serious situation, and the matter probably would be brought, before the congress I convention in May. In other business, delegates were told that violence and wildcat strikes could be re- sorted to by workers in Quebec if the rights to negotiate and strike are not ensured. Louis Laberge, president ol the Quebec Federation of Labor, said "the courts, governments and business have done every- thing in their power to prevent the worker from getting a fair deal." Mr. Laberge said it is not un- usual in Quebec for an em- ployer to phone a judge and au- tomatically get an injunction to stop a strike. Mr. Laberge said Prime Min- ister Trudeau's reasons for im- plementing the War Measures Act during last October's FLQ crisis were "lies" because in- vestigations revealed no organ- ized conspiracy to create revo- lution. A resolution opposing the War Measures and Public Order ads was passed following Mr. La- berge's address. WILL AFFECT ALL In a later speech, Mr. Beaudry told the delegates that the 10-pcr-cent supplementary duty on trade goods recently imposed by the United States would affect all Canadians, with the possibility of thousands being thrown out of work in Canada. Officials try lo patch up school rift OTTAWA (CP) Officials are doing everything possible to solve Uic schooling problems of northeastern Alberta Indians that have led the Indians to boy- cott schools, Indian Affairs Min- ister Jean Chretien told the Commons. But it was impossible lo meet all tlio complaints immediately, he ndded. Because the schools nre run by the province, provin- cial officials had to be con- sulted. Tho minister was replying to Don Mnzankowski who said that by the end of I ho week, parents will have kept pupils out of school >o protest what I hey consider inad- I cquaeies In tho system. Water project check planned PEACE RIVER (CP) Mar- tin Paetz, Alberta's chief fish- eries biologist, says his depart- ment will check an oil com- pany application to divert wa- ter from Smoke Lake, near Fox Creek in northwestern Alberta. Hudson Bay Oil and Gas Co. has applied to divert about 225 million gallons of water from the lake for oil well injection purposes. Mr. Paclz said in an inter- view his department does not want a repeat of the Carson Lake project last year when thousands of fish died follow- ing a similar diversion project. SIGN TRADE PACT TOKYO (Reulcr) Foreign Trade Minister Nikolai Patoli- chcv of Russia and Japanese Foreign Minister Tnkeo Fukiitla signed n new five-year trade and payments agreement Wednesday covering 1071-75. Delegates unanimously e n- dorsed a National Farmers Union boycott of Kraft Foods of Canada Ltd. in an attempt to establish its right lo bargain collectively for Canadian dairy- men. Dave WhaJley of Saskatoon told delegates that 10 years ago there were 500 cheese factories in Ontario and today there are 42. During that period farmers were forced off their land "largely because of huge agri-business operations.. Quebec delegation turns down offer QUEBEC (CP) Quebec de- clined an offer lo vote separ- ately from Canada al an inter- national conference. The opportunity arose at the closing meeting of the Interna- tional Association of French- speaking Parliamentarians. During debate on cultural af- fairs, association president Vic- tor Bodson decided to allow a vote by section rather than by delegation. This gave Quebec and New Brunswick a chance to cast bal- lots independently of the Cana- dian delegation. New Brunswick voted but Quebec abstained on grounds that the subject matter came under federal rather than provincial jurisdiction. The association, whose mem- bers are drawn from all politi- cal parties in member coun- tries, was discussing a proposed "cultural common market" of French-speaking countries. The resolution under discus- sion called for duty-free entry to member countries of "cul- tural goods" such as French- language books and magazines. The Canadian delegation and New Brunswick both voted in favor of the resolution. Quebec also expressed support, but ab- stained from voting on grounds that customs duties are a fed- eral responsibility. Jean-Noel Lavoie, Speaker of the Quebec legislative assem- bly, explained: "We of the Quebec delegation, while interested in cultural ex- change among French-speaking communities and wishing to ex- press our opinions on the princi- ple of the matter, do not have any jurisdiction over customs duties under the Canadian con- stitution. "Although we recognize the complete and total jurisdiction of the provinces over cultural matters, we do not wish to ex- press an opinion on possible customs exemptions, which is exclusively a matter for the fed- eral authorities." Quebec was "completely In agreement" with the principle of the resolution "but we cannot make any pronouncement on the question of customs duties." Beaten Liberal seeks top job REGINA (CP) George Leith, 48, today announced he will seek the leadership the Saskatchewan Liberal party. The former MLA for Elrose who was defeated in the June 23 Saskatchewan general elec- tion, announced his candidacy al a news conference. The only other declared can- didate is Dave Steuart, former deputy leader and now the party's interim leader. CONTINUES... Buy now and save during Beaver's round-up of brand-name bar- gains.
