It caused liim to miss the start of the revolution that the late Carnal Abdel Nas- ser led in Egypt. In his bcok Revolt on the Nile, Sadat wrote that he was at the movies the night of July 22, 1952, when Nasser decided the time .was ripe to overthrow King Farouk. As Sadat described it: "Gamal Nasser, who was summoning the conspirators himself, called for me in his famous 'little Austin car. He called again an hour later and, finding me still out, left a note which said quite simply: "It happens tonight. Rendezvous at Abdul Hakims at 11 p.m." "My heart leaped.

MacMil Ian Bloedel said it will increase its price for standard news- print in the United States am Canada by a ton on the same date.

JUST ARE LI3FT Of the military junta of colo- nels thai overthrew Farouk, Sadat and Hussein el Shafci, 51, are the only ones who still are at the top level of power. E! Shafei has little popular sup- port. Sadat, now 52, is the son of a Sudanese mother and an Egypt- ian father. He has ability end charm and speaks English well. His wife is half English. A graduate of the Egyptian Military Academy, he served in the Signal Corps until 1942, when he was arrested on charges of spying for Germany and dismissed from the Egypt- ian army. Nasser's version of his dis- missal was that Sadat "was im- prisoned for his patriotic activi- ties by order of the British." In December, 1945, he was implicated in an attempted as- sassination of Nahas Pasha, leader of the nationalist Wafd party, and served a period of imprisonment. Sadat was reinstated in the Egyptian army in 1951 and now holds the rank of lieutenant- colonel. He was Nasser's trou- ble-shooter when Egypt sent thousands of troops to aid the Republicans in the Yemen civil war in 1962. He began his political career shortly after the 1952 coup by becoming director of army pub- lic relations and managing edi- tor of Al-Gomhourai, the news- paper of the Arab Socialist Union, Egypt's only political party. HADE COMEBACK He was appointed a minister of state in 1954 and later secre- tary-general of the Islamic Con- gress but was dropped from the cabinet in June, 1956. In 1958 he made a comeback as secretary-general of the So- cialist Union and two years later he became speaker of the National Assembly. He led a National Assembly delegation to the Soviet Union in 1961 and clashed with Nikita S. Khrushchev, then premier, about Egypt's attitude toward communism. Writing on communism, Sadat has said that "it is in countries where social unrest and resent- ment may be exploited that communism gains a hold." "The Middle East, as long as it remained under the imperial- ist yoke, took the line of least resistance to communism." Although Sadat was promoted to vice-president in February, 19fi4, it was evidently Nasser's Dolicy that he should continue direction of the country's parlia- mentary life. He presented himself as a candidate for a provincial seat n March, 1964, and was unani- mously elected to servo again as assembly speaker. He accompanied Nasser to the Organization of African Unity meetings in Ghana in October, 968, and to Moscow in July, 1968. He led another delegation to VIoscow in 1869. At this time Nasser decided to reshuffle his government. Sadat was named he No. 2 man. Sadat started to relieve Nasser of some of the oad or problems caused by the conflict with Israel, internal Egyptian difficulties and rela- ions with Arab countries.

Jack Moore, western regional president of the International Woodworkers of America, said here that with more than 90 per cent of the ballots counted, 972 were in favor and against a settlement. Union negotiators had rec- ommended on Sept. 4 a wage and working conditions pack- age worked out with Mr. Jus- tice Nathan Nemetz of the B.C. Court of Appeals. Negotiators from the union and Forest Industrial Relations, bargaining agent for 116 B.C. forestry firms, agreed then on clarifications of the Nemetz report after a week of steady discussion. Mr. Justice Nemetz, called back in July from a vacation in Quebec to mediate the dis- pute when negotiations appear- ed to be at an impasse, rec- ommended a 60-cent hourly in- crease in two years on a base rate of hourly. Tradesmen will get an additional 30 cents hourly during the two years. Tte later clairfications in- cluded provision for sharing the cost of health and welfare in- surance for the woodworkers, with the companies assuming 70 per cent of the cost by Jan. 1, 1972.
