The provincial government has said the new act is ex- pected within 18 months or two years. Mr. Lee presented a paper Municipal council to deal with tax delays Better relations aim of Nixon, Brandt meetings Oily WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon and West German Chancellor Willy Brandt were expected to make a major effort today to blend United States ideas with those of the Common Market Higher grants predicted EDMONTON C P) Public pressure is almost cer- lain to result in higher provin- cial grants for early childhood services, Dr E. K. Havvkesworth. Alberta's depu- tv education minister, said Friday. He told the Early Childhood Education Council grants for gitted children are to be an- ticipated as the ECS program grows. Growth in the program would come if the public demanded it. Dr Havvkesworth defended the program, introduced this year, before 300 kindergarten d n (I e 1 o rn e n I a r y school teachers from thoughout the p r o v i nc e The t w o d a y conference was to conclude today. The program offers health, educational and recreational services to children up to eight years, he said. Involved are provincial departments of education, health and youth, culture and recreation. Kay Chernowski, supervisor of early childhood education for Edmonton public schools, said the program has led to discrimination because some kindergartens do not receive grants She also said some parents complain of being ask- ed now to participate in the program although not con- sulted when it was es- tablished. Dr. Hawkesworth said the government was correct not to adopt universal kindergartens immediately on redefinition of the Atlantic partnership After the White House meeting, Brandt was schedul- ed to lunch with State Secretary Henry Kissinger, Defence Secretary James Schlesinger and Senate Ma- jority Leader Mike Mansfield before returning to New York, where he addressed the United Nations earlier this week. The Nixon administration's desire to streamline relations with the allies in Western Eu- rope and to revitalize the Atlantic partnership was the No. 1 item on the White House agenda, diplomatic in- formants said. But there also would be talk about virtually every problem affecting the Western alliance. Nixon was expected to try to enlist Brandt's assistance to get agreement on the language uf two documents, now called declarations of principle, which might be signed when the president travels to Europe either late this year or early in 1974. The initiative came from Kis- singer last April and the U.S mailed its draft of the docu- ment to the allies last August. TOPICS SPLIT UP While Kissinger had one such document in he called it a new Atlantic Europeans proposed there should be two and that was- quickly accepted by the ad- ministration. One should deal with eco- nomic issues and the other with security and defence matters. A week ago the U.S. receiv- ed from the Common Market the draft of the economic declaration. Though ad- ministration officials refrain- ed from any public comment they made 'it clear that they were not satisfied. In- formants said it was couched in cautious generalities and avoided certain concrete questions raised in the U.S. draft of last August.

Pep in elected WLF head By DONAT VALOIS EVIAN, France (CP) Marcel Pepin, president of the Confederation of National Trade Unions, was elected president Friday of the 15- million-member World Labor Federation, the world's third- iargest labor organization. He told the 275 delegates at- tending the 18th congress here of a great battle needed to free the workers of the world. Mr. Pepir said the right to join a union of one's choice is just as important as the liber- ation of the worker from the grasp of capitalism and impe- rialism. This right of workers, he said, is denied to some degree throughout the world. Even in Canada, a country with a democratic reputation, thousands of workers are forc- ed to join unions in which the membership is dispersed across great distances and in which the vast majority have no chance to meet, he said. Mr Pepin was the only candidate running for the four-year presidency of the 80- nation organization. B.C. gas supplies to be cut VANCOUVER (CP) An energy department spokesman said Friday a predicted natural gas supply cutback in the lower mainland will be only one-third the original 10-per-cent estimate. But the spokesman said Knergy Minister Donald Mac- donaki is still waiting for a National Energy Board report on the possible natural gas shortage in British Columbia this winter. Transmission Co. Ltd notilicd its customers this month that it must reduce supplies by about 120 million cubic feet of pipeline gas daily or about 10 per cent. Westcoast sells 1.2 billion cubic feet daily, more than 800 million cubic feet of it to El Paso Natural Gas Co in Washington and Oregon. The bulk goes to three B.C. utilities The company said the cut- back likoly because one of its suppliers. Amoco Canada Petroleum Ltd was having operating problems. JASPER (CP) A resolu- tion asking for provincial legislation to allow municipalities to delay property taxes in cases of need was referred Friday by the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association to the new Municipal Finance Council. Tom Adams, economic af- fairs commissioner of the city of Edmonton, said the provin- cial municipal affairs depart- ment has shown interest in the plan. The resolution said defer- ment or roll-back procedures could be accomplished through dual assessments, one based on fair market 'value and the other according to ac- tual use. The difference between the two would be deferred. Calgary's delegation ob- jected because Edmonton introduced the resolution Animals die on air trips WINNIPEG big passenger jet lands with its liuman cargo safe but often there are dead animals among the baggage. That is the situation described by Dr. Angela Helfernan of Ottawa, a medical doctor and a director ol the Ottawa Humane Society, who spoke to the an- nual Canadian Federation of Humane Societies Friday. Dr. Heffernan said animals are air-freighted in baggage holds under conditions which sometimes are extremely inhumane. She told of dogs running wild, terror-striken at the darkness in the hold and the loudness of the engines, breaking teeth and jaws as they frantically chew cages to get out. In another case, she said a prize Dachshund arrived dead at its destination, its body crushed by the impact of its cage crashing with other baggage-into bulkheads. Although there is a com- prehensive manual put out by the International Air Tran- sport Association on flight conditions lor almost every animal, there is no authority to enforce its precepts, she said. She said airlines are eager for the animal transport trade and "those who profit by this traffic will only mend their wavs if forced to do so." without placing it on the convention agenda but the assembly voted to consider the item. The Edmonton group ex- plained that reassessment in 1973 left certain property owners elderly persons, farmers close to the city and owners of golf courses hard-pressed. A city spokesman said the Edmonton Golf and Country Club is thinking of selling its land for development pur- poses because property taxes are heavy However, the city hoped the land would remain a golf course. Mayor Ivor Dent of Ed- monton said outside the meeting that the major concern is to assist elderly citizens. Under existing laws, their homes could be put up for sale if back taxes are not paid within three years. George Hughes, Edmon- ton's acting chief com- missioner, said the city is proceeding with a plan to allow senior citizens on-the guaranteed-income supple- ment to get a tax rebate eliminating supplementary school requisition costs. Another late Edmonton resolution, approved by the assembly, called on the province to amend its propos- ed uniform building standards code so that municipalities can continue to set their own codes. The resolution said municipal standards must not be lower than those con- tained in provincial legislation and that a municipality not now enforcing a code "should be given provincial funds if re- quired. on what might be expecterd in the new act, outlining the philosophy behind it. He pointed out his comments were not necessarily those of Advanced Education Minister Jim Foster or the government. "When you start writing the new act, write it as if you were in recommended Dr. Max nan, university president. "If you were in opposition, would you give the govern- ment that much MORE CONTROL The existing advanced education act gives Mr. Foster as much control as was held by the former Univer- sities and Colleges Com- mission. Dr. W. D. Neal, university vice-president for planning and development, said exten- sive changes in 1973 sub- stituted the name "minister of advanced education" for "universities commission" in many places. "There is a real concern that an educational mafia is developing another expen- sive level of administration whose cost possibly will ex- ceed the savings from centralized said Peter Freeman, law librarian and associate professor. Mr. Freeman said the ad- vanced education department now has more than 75 staff members and is looking for quarters that could accom- modate as many as 300. He advised that the propos- ed Universities Advisory Committee should have con- siderable power, complete with the necessary staff. Mr. Lee's presentation said the Alberta government amended the Universities Act and the College Act and introduced a department of advanced education to help erase duplication of services, gaps in programming, ine- quities in funding and problems in transferring students within educational institutions. He said the government views its relationship with the universities as a partnership, but Prof. James Cahill of the religion department dis- agreed. ''You can't have a partnership when one partner owns the other." Weather conditions help search for lost plane PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. (CP) The search for the pilot of a private aircraft mis- sing in rugged central British Columbia for 12 days was be- ing stepped up today under improving weather con- ditions. Search officials at Prince George. B.C., said it was hoped all available planes would be thrown into the search during the day. Low clouds, rain and poor visibility have hampered the search almost continuously since Neil Carey of North Vancouver. B.C., a CP Air pilot on a private flight in a light aircraft, disappeared on a flight from Quesnel to Terrace Sept. 18. The poor flying conditions were blamed for the crash of a Canadian Forces Tracker plane Sept. 20 while par- ticipating in the search, kill- ing its four-man crew. Wreckage of the Tracker was found Thursday. Experienced pilots said Fri- day they believed the Tracker crashed because the crew was unfamiliar with the treacherous downdrafts in the Telkwa Pass area. Capt. Larry Schaufele of Bow Island, Alta., Cpl. John Scammel of Windsor, Ont., Capt. Ted Bade and Sgt. Sherman Pye, both of Dart- mouth, N.S., died in the crash. The Tracker plane normally was based at Shearwater, N.S., and was stationed at Patricia Bay, near Victoria, for the summer on a rotation scheme. The defence department is investigating the crash. Airport also reopened f Baghdad curfew lifted BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) Iraq's leftist regime lifted a curfew in Baghdad and re- opened the capital's inter- national airport early today after a 24-hour manhunt for al- leged plotters trying to over- throw the regime. The Iraq news agency re- ported the lifting of restric- tions, but did not say whether the massive house-to-house search by secret police Friday had led to any arrests. The curfew and airport clo- sure were announced Friday morning over Baghdad radio, which said government of- ficials were searching for killers of eight persons whose mutilated bodies were found on the outskirts of the Iraqi capital last month. Vice-President Sadam Hus- sein Takriti charged that the killers were "imperialists and counter-revolutionaries plotting a Chile-type overthrow" of Iraq's Baath party Socialist regime. The victims have not been identified, but Takriti's charge that their murders were political in nature in- dicated they might have been members of families in the Baath party hierarchy. The Beirut newspaper, Ai Hayat. says the killers have been dubbed the Black Masks by Baghdad residents because they disguised themselves in this fashion on their murder raids AI Hayat says one of the vic- tims is the father of Iraq's chief prosecutor in a trial last July which led to the execu- tion of former security chief Nazem Kzar and 35 ac- complices for plotting against the government. The newspaper speculates that the Black Masks were former followers of Kzar and that they had embarked on a bloody round of reprisals against the families of govern- ment officials who crushed his attempted coup. The Baath party has had a history of coups and spy trials since it took over Iraq in 1963, was subsequently ousted and returned to power five years ago. January and February of 1969 saw the regime's first hangings and firing squad executions of 52 alleged Iraqi spies, including 14 Jews. Since then there have been periodic executions, li- quidations and assassination attempts against army of- ficers accused of spying and exiled officials of former Iraqi regimes.
