BEGINS LIFE OF EXILE Josef Cardinal Mindszenty, the Roman Catholic primale of Hungary, begins a life of foreign exile today after 15 years as a voluntary "prison- er" in the U.S. embassy in Budapest. Although still retain- ing his position as archbishop of Esztergom and primate of Hungary, the 79-year-old cardinal who finally bowed to Vatican pressure and flew to Rome this week is un- likely ever to see his homeland again. The cardinal, shown above being assisted by two unidentified persons at Rome airport, may spend the rest of his days in Vienna. One government wanted for 'Pass By VERN DECOUX Crowsncst Pass Bureau FRANK Unifying the Crowsncst Pass towns under one government was discussed at a meeting of the Crowsnest Pass Chamber of Commerce. It was held at the Turtle Mountain Hotel. The chamber has offered Us assistance to town councils con- cerned. Charles Drain, MLA, a mem- ber of Ihe appointed board look- ing into the feasibility of the 'Pass uniting under one govern- ment, said there are various problems holding back realiza- tion. He indicated various towns ir the "Pass owned their publi unities while others did no own as much. Therefore the were reluctant to enter such negotiation. Mr. Drain indicated tha there was much to be gaine from such a union. Duplication of services woul be eliminated, more grants would be available and othe benefits would be realized. He felt if the matter was pu to a vote to the entire area con cemed, a county system woul be voted in. John Kovacs, associate plan ner of the Oldman River Re- gional Planning Commission also felt the move would he beneficial lo all. The chief bene- fit would be non-duplication o services as well as (he ava. ability of many grants. A.

He suggested a good program of communication with the lo- cal residents, through their leaders, would show the bene- fits of such a union. It woulc be the best course of action to realize an eventual union o] Crowsnest Pass Communities. The matter of the new high- way through the Crowsnesi Pass was also discussed.

Truckers have been contact ed and indicate Highway through the Crowsnest Pass more desirable as a winter route than the Roger's Pass as the 'Pass is not plagued wit! snow-slides, plugged roads and tough grades. Mi'. Owen also complained the Highway 3 route is being slighted by various promoters of tourist bureaus. He advised that he had re- ceived a tourist package thai contained a map which did not show a road or highway be- tween Pincher Creek and Cran- brook, B.C. He said the traffic was being routed on the north route over the Roger's Pass and from Pincher Creek south down over the border. This matter is going to be taken up with Alan Sulatacky, MP. Mr. Drain, MLA, made at- tempts to show why the con- struction of the highway through this area was being slowed down. He said that dislocation of people, whose homes will be in the path of the highway, was one of the reasons the construc- tion was being held up as land wi'l have to be purchased. By not hurrying the matter, government felt it would ease the blow to people who will have to give up their homes. He also said towns in the area were alternate routes. These had to be eval- uated. Colin L. Rines, Alberta field representative of the Canadian and Alberta Chambers of Com- merce, present when the Crows- neat Pass Chamber was formed last October, congratulated the organization for the work it was doing. He said he was pleased to see tlie group working with this program. John Pool, president of the local chamber, thanked visitors for their attendance. Place for women comes bit closer EDMONTON (CP) Can- ada's Roman Catholic hierachy ended a week-long meeting re- cently on proposals concerning the ordination of married men, a relaxed attitude to women in the church and a policy of fin- ancial frankness. A Canadian delegation is to carry these proposals to the Roman Catholic synod begin- ning next week in Rome. The proposals are the product of five days of intense work and debate by the Canadian Catholic Conference, the National Asso- ciation of Bishops, Archbishops and Cardinals. The six-man delegation to the synod, which ivill last four or five weeks, includes Maurice Cardinal Roy of Quebec City, George Cardinal Flahiff of Win- nipeg, Archbishops J. A. Plourde of Ottawa, Paul Gre- goir of Montreal and Maxim Efermaniuk of, the Ukrainian Catholic Church in Winnipeg and Bishop Alexander Carter of S'ault Ste. Marie, Out. Sixty-one of the bishops at the conference were in favor of or- daining married men "where [he need is very urgent." Twelve were against it. CHANGE TO DRASTIC On ordaining married men under any circumstances, the vote was 38 to 31; the bishops feeling that to eliminate the ex- NEW PRESIDENT N.

Opening the door to women "lo various ministries in the church" has "been in the wind for some explained Sis- ter Ella Zink of Ottawa, a pub- lic relations spokesman. The bishops said the church was not jumping on to the women's liberation bandwagon just because it is a popular thing to do but because it has been olanned "for a good num- ber of years." Sixty-seven of 72 bishops were in favor of the motion but, said the conference in a prepared statement Friday, "the study of a ministry for women is much less advanced" than study of other pressing issues. "Hoi -ever, the Canadian dele- gates to the synod will recom- mend the immediate striking of mixed commission to give effective implementation to this question." Church finances, Jong a target of critics who believe the Vati- can has billions of dollars in its coffers, was a much-debated topic. Financial openness is neces- sary "simply because of the ex- aggerated accounts of the church's Archbishop Carter said during a workshop earlier in the week. "So many people think the church has all kinds of dough stashed away in all kinds of banks." This topic came under discus- sion during a question period at the news conference when tlie bishops expressed support for the nearly bankrupt United Nations. Asked whether this included financial support, Most Rev. Williar E. Power of Antigonish, N.S'., new president of the con- ference, said moral support is the only way the church can heir the UN become a valid world power. September 29, 197] THE IETHBRIDGH _ 29 The great grain war rages on OTTAWA (CP) The great grain war continued inside and outside the Commons Tuesday. Inside, the opposition accused the government of scandalous contempt for the law. Outside, Prime Minister Trudeau said the government was trying to legislate juslice for the farmers and accused the opposition of "carping about legalistic ques- tions." Also outside, Mr. Trudeau said the government is giving Prairie farmers a chance to say, in the next few weeks, whether they want the govern- ment bill or not. If not. grains legislation now before Parlia- ment would be dropped. And Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson said "farmers have fi- nally got (he message" and any more parliamentary argument about the legaiily or lack of it in the government's procedures "is a bunch of garbage" as far as grain farmers are concerned. CONSERVATIVES OUTVOTED Inside again, the Conserva- tives came up on the short end of a formal 116 to 65 vote, called on the grains legislation issue. The vote was on the Conserva- tive premise that since t h e government was ignoring the law regarding wheat storage payments, there was no sense in the House conducting any other business. Also inside, New Democrat Leader David Lewis was unsuc- cessful in attempting to have what he termed the scjmdalous contempt of the government for the law referred to llie Com- mons committee on privileges and election. Conservatives warned that they may force more formal one takes about half an even on a daily basis to point up the con- tention that the government is breaking the law. At the heart of the clash is the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act, a law passed in 1956 which sets out payments the govern- ment must make monthly to the Canadian wheat board for grain held in storage, and a bill to stabilize grain farmer income, still before the House. The stabilization bill says among its clauses that, upon its passage, the reserves ac( is re- pealed. A transition payment to farmers is set cut to cover the period between repeal of the re- serves act and implement? lion of the new one. No payments have been made under the reserves act since Au- gust, 1970. Some million would have been paid out last July, the end of the 1970-71 crop year, under the reserves act. But instead of making these payments, the government has Victim tells of sliooting been pushing the stabilization bill, which includes provision for a 5100 million payment to farmers to cover the 1070-71 crop year. This would be a transition pe- riod before enactment of the stabilization bill, which would EDMONTON (CP) A 40- yearTold man testified in Alber- ta Supreme Court almit how his 45-year-old ex-mistress shot him on May 17.

No casualties were reported. But in Agrigenlo about 350 houses collapsed. Safety tops frustrate patients BAAVF (CP) Safety tops on pill bottles are sometimes so difficult to open that they de- feat their purpose, says Dr. Robert Halfield cf Calgary. The medication committee chairman of the Alberta Medi- cal Association told the group's annual meeting some patients get so frustrated with the lids that "when they have solved the problem of finally getting tha bottle open, they throw tha top away." The open container then be- came a greater hazard to cu- rious youngsters than one with- out even a regular lid.

Most of these poisoned are children aged less than four years. set up a farmer-financed pool from which farmers could draw in bad years. The government would also put money in when funds were insufficient Jn a bad year to maintain farmer income at the average level of the five previous years. "We haven't been trying to fool the public or the Mr. Trudeau told reporters out- side the House. The Liberals wanted to put it squarely before the could nave the million under the re- serves act or they could have the S100 million. But he said anyone who thought Uie government would go along with the opposition game and wait for both was being naive. Mr. Ttudeau admitted the government is in default on the reserves act payments and "we don't like being in default." So the period in which grain farm- ers would be allowed their choice was limited. If there was no decision in the next few weeks, "we'll forget the new deal" and fanners could get along with the re- serves act.
