This is the refugee center in embattled Phnom Penh, Cambodia. By ROD CURRIE LONDON (CP) European leaders have finally united in favor of President Nixon's proposed European tour this fall but only on then terms. These terms may deprive Nixon of a diplomatic spec- tacular along the "break- through" lines of his first- term missions to the Soviet Union and China. European confidence that Nixon probably will accept these terms springs from the widely-held belief on the Continent that Nixon is anx- ious for a DISTILLED AGED AND BOTTLED IN BOND UNDER SUPERVISION OF THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT Three leathers.

The visit would serve the purpose of casting him in the role of statesman going about his country's business while others, as he has put it, con- tinue to "wallow in Watergate." SHADOWY PROSPECTS Nevertheless, as now out- lined, the visit would fall far short of producing the grand new Atlantic Charter cham- pioned by State Secretary Henry Kissinger during his "Year of Europe" speech last Easter. The American leadership has its heart set on a glittering new accord on trade, defence and policies relating to the Communist world. What Europe seems to be offering is a reaffirmatipn of transatlantic generalities mainly as a pattern of relations between the U.S. and the nine-country Common Market. One of the factors is the re- port that Common Market leaders have shown hesitation about the trip, with West Ger- many's Willy Brandt, for in- stance, at first warming to the idea and then cooling. France at one point seemed certain to throw a monkey-wrench into the scheme. U.S. DISAPPOINTED Finally in a Copenhagen meeting, the Common Market suddenly produced unanimity in devising what Nixon would call a "game plan" for the visit. But the Americans made no secret of the fact that the proposed joint declaration fell far short of their expec- tations. For instance, it makes no mention of defence questions which the Europeans regard as a NATO rather than a Common Market matter but which the U.S. is anxious to bring into the dis- cussions.

Americans want is a dramatic result while the Europeans, although emphasizing they would value such a visit, see it as an important first step toward a gradual common front on foreign policy. As a result, their draft devised in Copenhagen has been de- scribed by critics as simply a collection of pious generalities. Prime Minister Heath, per- haps more than most of his European colleagues, is reported anxious that the Nix- on visit be undertaken. There has been broad public dis- satisfaction since Britain entered Europe last January and Heath apparently feels the idea of the community speaking with a single voice to the U.S. would project a more reassuring picture of a united and resolute Europe. Employees negotiate for plant CALGARY (CP) A group of employees at Imperial Oil Ltd.'s Calgary refinery has formed a company to negotiate the purchase of the plant. Imperial Oil has announced plans to close down the Calgary plant next year when it concentrates its refining operations in Edmonton. The company formed by the employees Calgary Refin- ing Ltd. has formed partnership with an undisclos- ed Canadian company in the negotiations for the purchase of the Imperial Oil plant. Bill Dorman, a plant employee and presiident of Calgary Refining, said in a news release that he hopes Imperial Oil will co-operate in the purchase. There are 120 men employed at the Imperial Oil plant. Some of them staged a demonstration outside the conference hall when the Western Economic Oppor- tunities Conference was held here in July, protesting the planned shutdown of the plant and the loss of jobs. Since then, Imperial Oil of- ficials have said that they will sell the plant to the highest bidder. VICE PRESIDENT AGNEVVS HANDSHAKE AT An- drews Air Force Base, Md., is pretty hearty, one gathers from President Nixon's expression. This was 1969, with the President on his way to meet with South Vietnamese leaders, but the heartiness seems not to have diminished in the current time of trouble for both. Also present were Tricia Nixon Cox and Brig. Gen. Richard A. Knoblach, base commander. Olympic director lottery named MONTREAL (CP) Julien Cote, one of the men who turn- ed Quebec's provincial lot- a highly-successful venture, to- day begins the task of bringing equal success to a near- national venture on behalf of the 1976 Summer Olympics. Mr Cote's appointment as vice-president and director general of the Olympic Lottery of Canada Corp., was announced Tuesday by Roger Rousseau, commissioner- general for the Montreal Games. The organizing committee hopes to realize revenues of million through sale of lottery tickets in this country. The lottery was authorized by the federal government last July as one of the means for financing the 1976 Games. "There's a tremendous Plumptre's blitz strikes stores OTTAWA (CP) Plumptre's posse, a band of 80 investigators sent out by the food prices review board to check pricing practices in the country's grocery stores, began sorting out findings Monday from a two-week investigation. The group hit stores during the blitz and a board spokesman said a number of pricing irregularities were un- covered. Results of the search would be made public in about a week. When the investigators first Schoolboy stabbed Churchill LONDON" CAP) Winston Churchill was stabbed in the chest close to his heart during a fight over a penknife when he was a 10 year old schoolboy, a British historian said today. Julian Mitchell, who is writing a script for a televi- sion series on Churchill's American born mother Jen- nie Jerome, said young Churchill was not seriously hurt and the incident was not publicized to protect the un- named boy who stabbed him. Mitchell, in an interview, cited the stabbing as an exam- ple of previously unpublished material he has found in the Churchill family archives at Blenheim Palace near Oxford. The incident in 1884 was described in a letter from a Miss Thompson, headmistress at Churchill's school at Hove, near Brighton, to his mother, Mitchell said. Churchill was stabbed dur- ing an art class when he and the other boy argued over a pen knife, the letter said. It reported that his chest wound was only about a quarter of an inch deep and had been stitch- ed up. Miss Thomson wrote that the other boy hopes to go into the navy and that publici- ty might harm his prospects. set out after a week-long training course two weeks ago, there was concern that publicity surrounding the in- quiry would put retailers on their guard. "We didn't want to give the retailers advanced warning that they were being a spokesman said at the time. The worries were apparent- ly unfounded, he said Monday. The investigative unit was set up temporarily as part of the government's mid- summer anti-inflation measures. Following an Aug. 13 cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Trudeau announced that the board would investigate how food com- panies price particular com- modities. FOLLOW MOVEMENTS When it was originally es- tablished under chairman Beryl Plumptrc in.May, the board was ordered to publish quarterly reports on food price movements and the reason behind any increases in the price of particular classes of food. While the investigators will disband at the end of the month, they have provided Mrs. Plumptre with fuel for some of her harshest attacks on food retailers. She has complained about a number of practices, including double and multi-price ticketing, misleading signs on specials, advertising of non-existent specials and incorrect la- belling. At one point she complained that retailers and some processors "appear to- be intentionally seeking to con- fuse the consumer through their merchandising prac- tices." A board spokesman said the review board now was in the process of setting up a per- manent investigative unit to replace the 80 raiders sent out on the national survev. CASTRO VISITS HANOI TOKYO (AP) Prime Minister Fidel Castro of Cuba arrived in Hanoi Wednesday for a visit en route home from the conference of non-aligned countries in Algiers. amount of work involved if we want to cover Canada the same as Loto-Quebec covers this Mr. Cote said. "We must build up documents and see people and we have only three weeks to do it." Mr. Rousseau said details of the lottery, such as ticket prices, frequency of sale, and prizes, will be made public "within one with tickets probably available for sale "toward the end of this year." WHO'S IN? One of the difficulties that must be overcome is the non- participation of some provinces. The governments of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia have declined to take part in the venture, while the committee is awaiting a decision from Nova Scotia. With Canada's Olympic stamps already on sale and the first sets of com- memorative sterling silver coins to help finance the Games set for distribution by the end of December, the committee Tuesday unveiled what it hopes will be another source of revenue. The first multi-colored poster was put on display. This is the first of a series of posters that will go on sale around the world to explain that "Montreal will play host to the world in 1976." The poster bears the stan- dard five interlocking the five coupled with lines of decreasing contrasts in black, blue, red, yellow and green. They will be the stan- dard 36 by 24 inch size. Gerry Snyder, vice- president of finance for the organizing committee, said that negotiations are still un- der way for the sale and dis- tribution of the posters. NEGOTIATING DEAL "Someone will be selling them, but to what extent we won't know for another month." Mr. Snyder said. "We're negotiating a deal for distribution throughout the world without cost to the com- mittee, but giving the money (revenue) to our organ- ization On its original projection of revenues, the Montreal com- mittee listed million through the sale of Olympic coins, million for stamp sales, and another million realized from the sale of post- ers, brochures, photos, films and other allied sources. Costly airport GRAPEVINE, Tex. (AP) Texas dedicates the world's largest airport venture sprawl- ing over acres of North Texas prairie midway between Dallas and Fort Worth. It initially will have employees and handle passengers daily. When the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport officially open for business late next month, it will have 66 gate positions and ultimately 434 for passengers and cargo. The world's largest" claim, however, will be lost next year when Montreal com- pletes its Mirabel airport on acres.
