Trudeau: too early lo talk farm aid "way faces By MICHAEL STERN New York Times Service OSLO Norwegians today faced a whole range of critical economic and as the result of their decision to reject, membersliip in the European Economic Community. On the day after a two-day referendum which pro- duced a majority of 03.3 per cent to 46.1 per cent Hgainst the union with Common Market countries there were these developments: Premier Trygve Bratlcll announced thai he and his Labor government would resign next week, leaving the country's shattered political structure leaderless. A bid for early negotiation on a trade agreement that would reopen the door Norway slammed on Eu- rope to her industrial exports was rejected by the EEC commission in Brussels. Norway was told there was no chance of talks until next year, by which time Britain, one of her best customers, will have entered the market and been cut off by tiie community's com- mon external tariff. Fears mounting Fears were mounting that the strong anti-European vote would loosen Norway's defence and security ties lo the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and move her toward the neutralists position of her neighbor, Sweden. Speaking at a meeting of the Textile Workers Union in Oslo, Bratteli said the no vole meant that the kind of co-operation Norway liad enjoyed with western Eu- ropean democracies for the past 23 years probably could not continue. "We now face a very difficult arid uncertain pe- he said. R. Roem Nielsen, deputy director of the Federa- tion of Norwegian industries, sa'.d of the vote: "The country has lost a great opportunity. Now we will have to live with a great many uncertainties, and with much smaller prospects for economic expansion. Business- men are going to find it very difficult to make in- vestment plans." The stock market took the same view, Sliare values fell shavply on the exchange, with the export-oriented industries aluminum ferro alloys, shipbuilding and wood and paper the decline. Businessmen believe that rejection of Common Mar- ket membership will give a decisive check to the Norwegian economy. The enlarged EEC that is, the six original members, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, West Germany and France, and the three others who agreed to join in January, Britain, Ireland and Denmark take G5 per cent of Norway's exports. Where Norway will find markets for these goods once they are excluded by tariffs is not known. One possibility is a Scandinavian economic union that would join Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Iceland. Twice negotiations for such a union broke down because of Norway's and Denmark's interests in EEC membership. But now that Norway is out and Denmark may reject the EEC in her own referendum next Monday, prospects for the so-called NORDEK Union are again being assayed. Formation of such a union would be highly satis- factory to the Conservative Nationalists and Pan-Scan- dinavians who were significant factors hi the coalition Ihat defeated the Common Market treaty. It also would please the left-wing Unionists wlio campaigned lor a break with the capitalist countries of western Europe and who held lip Sweden's neutral foreign policy as a model for Norway. Arne Haugestad, the 37-year-old lawyer who was the architect of the anti-market coalition, expressed quiet s.-.iisfacticn with tho vc'.e. He said "the people made an historic victory for Nonvay and for dem- ocracy." CALGARY (CP) It is too early to say whether Uie fed- eral government will com- pensate prairie farmers for crop damage suffered in last weekend's snowstorm, Prime Minister Trudeau said Tuesday Eight. Early reports say the snow- fall caused damage estimated Et million. Speaking at a Liberal party rally attended by about 5.500 persons at the Stampede Cor- ral, Mr. Trudeau said Ottawa paid compensation only when crop failures -reached disaster prooortions. "When the failure can handled locally or the federal government does not step in." He said Ottawa has agreed (o intervene in a failure of Ontario crops when the loss reaches an agreed amount. In the Ontario case farmers were liit by an early frost, then rain and hail. The two situations could not be compared, he said. ALBERTA SEEKS AID At Edmonton, Alberta plans to seek federal financial aid for farmers whose crops were snowed under early this week, Hugh Horner, the province's agriculture minister, said Tues- day. Ottawa had provided aid to Quebec and Ontario and "Al- berta is looking for similar aid when more concrete figures arc available on the Dr. Horner said in an inter- view. Also, the federal government would be asked to remove lim- its oil cash cdvandes, and to make advances on unthreshed grain. Alberta would pursue its re- quests "very quickly" unless there was a break in -veath- er. in row swin MANILA (AP) Two pro- vincial mayors, two councillors and the son of a man who wants the Philippines to ba- come a United States state were among persons appre- Iwnded today as Philippine armed forces continued their sweep against persons said to bs subversives, Information Secretary Francisco Talad said. At least seven more persons have been detained, including Amando Doronilla, editor of the Manila Chronicle, and one of the paper's columnists, Ernesto Granada. As of Tuesday, 92 persons were In custody under the sweeping order that President Ferdinand Marcos issued in as- suming the power to arrest criminals and anyone declared a subversive. Those arrested included An- tonio Hufino whose father ts leader the movement that wants the Philippines to be- come the 51st American state. CALLED WARLORD The young Rufino was ac- nised of being a gang leader and warlord. The mayor of Caloocan City and two of his councillors were arrested, as was the mayor ot Mariveles City, who was ac- cused of smuggling, Tatad said. Tatad said the army's drive against warlords was in- tensifying. Raids have been made on the homes of former Gov. Cameling Crisologo of Ilocos Sur and liis son. To date, the army's drive to disarm Filipinos has netted 200 firearms of various kinds and rounds of ammuni- tion. get grants EDMONTON (CP) Metis and non-status Indian organ- izations in the four western provinces will receive mil- lion in grants this winter for emergency repair and renova- tion of houses in rural commu- nities. Ren Basford, minister responsible for Central Mort- gage and Housing Corp., an- r.cunced today. 'We had to release them, we're running out of room.'. Mr. Easford, at a news con- ference, said the "winter warmth" program, started in 1971, is not an answer to all housing problems, but will up- grade some housing which is "very bad." The Metis Association of Al- berta, Saskatchewan Metis Society and Manitoba Metis Federation will each receive while the British Co- lumbia Association of non- status Indians will get The grants were based on sub- missions by the organizations. Mr. Basford said experience from last year's pro- gram will mean Uiat "a greater proportion of the work to be un- dertaken this year could be of longer-term value." He estimated that with addi- tional assistance from the cal Initiatives Program, about dwellings could be re- paired and renovated this year. The repair program helps Metis, and non-status Indians develop technical and manage- rial skills, Mr. Easford said. He added the timing of the an- nouncement was not connected with the Oct. 30 federal elec- tion. By BRUCE LEVETT Canadian Press Sports Editor MOSCOW (CP) A dispute over referees erupted between Team Canada and Soviet hocky officials today. One Ca- nadian spokesman said: "It looks serious, there could be no eighth game." Canada and Russia are tied 3-3 in victories with one game tied and the final game in the series set for Thursday night. Canadian coach Harry Sinden called "an important news con- ference" hut later cancelled it, sanding word that the Russian negotiators were discussing the problem among themselves and further word might be forth- coming during the evening. The problem came up slighlly before lunch time, when Sin- den, assistant coach John Fer- guson and director Alan Eagle- son were called to a meeting with Russian officials. Kirill Romanski, vice-presi- dent of the Soviet Ice Hockey Federation, and coaches Vsevo- !od Bobrov and Boris Kulagin were Ihe Russian negotiators. Andrei Starovoitov, president of the Russian association, was in Vienna for an international meeting. Gary Smith of the Canadian embassy was interpreter. Eagleson said the Canadians made their position they will not accept two West German referees for the crucial final left the Rus- sians to make up their minds. It was expected a news con- ference would be called either late tonight or early Thursday to announce a conclusion. Speculation here was that tha situation would be resolved by a compromise with one of the West German referees working with one of the other pair. The West Germans, who came under severe criticism for their handling of .Ihe sixth game of the series here Sun- day, are Joset Kompalla and Franz Baader. The' other pair, who kept Tuesday's seventh game well in hand, were Uve Dahlberg of Ssredcn and Rudolph Balja of Czechoslovakia. Joe Kryczka, president of tha Canadian Amateur Hockey As- sociation, sketched Uie back- ground. "Two days ago we reached agreement 'with the Russians that Uve Dalberg and Rudy Batja would work the seventh and eighth games. DISPUTE ARRANGEMENT "Now the Russians say they agreed only for the seventh game. They now insist on the two West Germans and there's no way we'll accept them. It looks serious. There could be no eighth game." Under the original system, Canada and Russia alternated in the choice of referees. Under this rotation, Russia had tha choice for the eighth game. After Sunday's game, worked by the two West Germans, Jo- sef Kompalla and Franz Baa- der, the Canadians called the referees "incompetent" and asked they not be assigned to any more games. Later the Canadians an- nounced that the Russians had agreed. When the Russians were reneging reached t h e scoring leader Phil Esposito, he said: "We might just as well quit right now. If this happens I hope they don't even put me on the ice. We might as well give up and let Russians have it if those guys work." Paul Henderson, leading the tournament in goals scored with six, said: "I don't often get upset but Oie last game they worked I nearly popped one of them." Firecracker sale banned OTTAWA (CP) Enevgy Minister Donald Macdonald announced today he has banned the sale of crackers to the general pub- lic. The minister said the ban, effective immediately, will restrict the use of fire- crackers lo persons licensed to USD display fireworks un- der new conditions that will he implemented in the next few months. The changes will be made by tightening regulations ap- plying to fireworks under the Canada Explosives Act. Fireworks distributors will be authorized to sell display fireworks only to persons holding "a permit of com- petency" issued by the de- partment, Mr. Macdonald said in a news release. The new regul ation s will stipulate guidelines for set- tJ ng oft fireworks d isplays and the department will in- troduce training courses and examinations for those apply- ing for permits. SPARKLERS RESTRICTED The ban, as well as out- lawing the sale of common noise-making firecrackers to the public, will also restrict the sale of less hazardous types such as sparklers and roman candles to persons 18 years of ago or over. Macdonald said the changes follow several months of study in, which rep- resentations from many pri- vate and public groups wera considered. He noted that regulations already have been imposed by some municipal govern- ments but said these have been ineffective because they have not applied universally. The news release advised "anyone with supplies of Chi- nese firecrackers on hand" to return them to the supplier.
