Palm Beach Post, Tuesday, December 7, 1976 A9 Separatists Consider Election As Mandate for Independence DIAMOND EARRINGS All in 14 Karat Gold Id New York Tinws OTTAWA - Representatives of Quebec's governing separatist movement declared yesterday they considered their recent election victory a mandate to proceed toward independence for their French-speaking province. "Quebec has taken a landmark step toward becoming the master of its own affairs," the province's minister of intergovernmental affairs said. "Why hide from it?" The minister, Claude Morin, who spoke at the beginning of a two-day meeting of federal and provincial finance ministers, thus sought to counter assertions made by Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau and other federalists that the election had turned on economic and other issues unrelated to separatism. Morin cautioned the Trudeau government and the other Canadian provinces against thinking that Quebec's participation at the meeting here was a step away from separatism. Arrangements worked out at such meet- ings, he said would be regarded by Quebec as "temporary and provisional." "What we shall propose to the rest of Canada when the time has come," he said, "is a new type of association which shall take into account requirements of economic interdependence as well as the historical and natural aspirations of Quebecers to be the masters of their own national destiny." Morin's statement appeared to cast a pall over the Ottawa session, which had been convened to consider federal proposals for tax division and other economic matters. It was the first formal meeting between representatives of the Quebec government and of representatives of the federal and other provincial governments since the Parti Quebecois stunned the nation with its election victory on Nov. 15.

Israel Seeks New Geneva Conference UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. (AP) -Israel, in its first resolution submitted to the U.N. General Assembly in 27 years of membership, responded to Arab peace moves by calling yesterday for the early reconvening of the Geneva Mideast conference. The three-paragraph document would have the assembly urge Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Syria to meet in Geneva "without delay" under the co-chairmanship of the United States and the Soviet Union. Referring to a flurry of peace signals from the Arabs in recent days, Israeli Ambassador Chaim Herzog told reporters the draft resolution was Israel's answer "in the light of all the sand that has been thrown up in the air to get them down to specifics." Herzog said it was the first time since Israeli joined the world body on May 11, 1949, that it had submitted a resolution to either the assembly or the Security Council. Israel, its supporters vastly outvoted, vigorously participates in U.N. debates but rarely initiates anything in a U.N. organ. The Israeli resolution was given little chance of adoption in its original form, because it aimed at keeping the Palestine Liberation Or ' . Ill 14K Gold Pendants A.

It could also be important, they Said, in understanding how solar magnetic storms possibly affect weather on earth. Pioneer 11 made its discoveries by exploring a region of space, high above the plane of earth's orbit, that had never been traversed before. Spacecraft ordinarily remain in the earth's orbital plane. But Pioneer 11, on its way to Saturn, was thrown 100 million miles above the plane by the force of Jupiter's gravity on a reconnaisance fly-by in 1974. (c) New York Times NEW YORK - The structure of the sun's magnetic field has been determined for the first time from data returned by the Pioneer 11 spacecraft, scientists reported yesterday. The magnetic field envelops and pervades the entire solar system, according to the data. It is roughly spherical, extending several billion miles above the sun's north and south poles and probably as far out as the orbit of Pluto, the outermost planet. It is split into northern and southern hemispheres by a thin sheet of electric current like a warped disk, the spacecraft data revealed. ganization (FLO) out of Geneva. Some Arab countries, acting through five nonaligned nations, rejected the Israeli move and introduced an amendment that, as one Israeli put it, "would subvert the intent of our resolution." This amendment, proposed by India, Malta, Senegal, Sri Lanka and Yugoslavia, would specify that the PLO should take part in the Geneva conference. The question of PLO participation has been blocking resumption of the Geneva talks, which met for two days in December 1973 and have not reconvened since. . Sri Lanka and 18 other nonaligned nations also submitted two rival resolutions in behalf of the moderate and radical Arab groups. The moderate one, drafted by Egypt, asks the U.N. secretary general to contact "all the parties to the conflict," including the PLO, in preparation for convening the Geneva talks "not later than" March 1, 1977. It also asks the secretary general to report to the Security Council on his contacts "not later than March 1977." The resolution specifies a PLO role only in preparatory consultations, and leaves open the question of participation in the conference itself. The other Arab resolution condemns Israeli occupation of Arab territories, calls for total Israeli withdrawal and the attainment of Palestinian rights and asks a complete cutoff of military aid to Israel. The Egyptian document asks Secretary-General Kurt Waldheim to take the initiative in reconvening the conference. w I 326158 12"D x 5'i"H IHC-C) lli 'M JJ Crash From Page ! Sgt.

"These types of industries cannot function in an area devoid of quality education. Their employes will not come to an area with substandard public schools," Reed said. The regents, through Chancellor E. T. York Jr., put on their own demonstration to convince Lt. Gov. Jim Williams of the system's role in halting Florida's economic downhill slide during the last two years. York proposed a State University System Economic Development Institute with regional centers at the nine university campuses to work with the state, chambers of commerce and community leaders to attract new business to Florida. "We must look for other jobs in the types of skills talked about here. Our people need jobs, need to be retrained and uptrained and put in higher paying jobs," Williams said. The regents also approved a request for a cooperative master of science degree program in chemistry for FAU and FIU and approved the phase out of FAU's master of arts in teaching program in English. The program has attracted little student interest, FAU officials said. Professors will be transferred to other programs. The regents also agreed to consider a change from the university system's quarter calendar to a semester calendar to mesh with community college schedules, approved several new rules on faculty hiring, firing and tenure and adopted a new rule on faculty layoffs. "We need an excellent graduate program in mechanical engineering at FAU and my company is willing to increase taxes to support that kind of program," Dwyer said. The Economic Council of the Palm Beaches has placed its third priority, behind better business relations with government and the community, on improving education and "we must have a direct and ongoing relationship with administrators in the university," Arvida Vice President Richard Miller said. University system staff proposals contained in a continuing Role and Scope study of the state's nine university system include the FAU FIU reorganization and the shifting of research-oriented Ph.D. programs to the University of Florida in Gainesville and Florida State University in Tallahassee.

Wisdom told the Cabinet in September that benefits would come to 97 cents to $1.05, depending on which alternatives are used, over a 50 year period for every $1 spent on construction. Shields recommended to the Cabinet that the state retain ownership of lands purchased along the canal route for construction of the waterway. He said recreational areas, such as Lake Oklawaha, should be preserved and surplus lands should be sold to the highest bidder. Funds received from the sale of such lands should be returned to the countries that bought it with tax dollars, Shields said. The state agency responsible for the canal is the Florida Canal Authority, which is a part of Shields' department. He recommended that the authority be abolished and its functions transferred to his Division of Resource Management. him indicates the costs of the waterway will not justify the projected benefits. He recommended that the state abandon canal works in the St. Johns and Summit areas and preserve works in the Oklawaha, Eureka, Rousseau and West End regions. The canal waj halted by former President Richard Nixon in 1971 with the work one-third finished. A federal judge ruled Nixon's order illegal, however, and ordered studies to guide Congress in deciding what to do about the canal. Col. Donald Wisdom, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers district engineer at Jacksonville, told the Cabinet in September that projected benefits of the canal are marginal compared to cost. However, Rep. William Chappell (D-Fla.) contended last week that a 1976 federal law changing the way in which public works benefits are computed adds $l Wilson's Galleries Just across the street (south) from Wilson Jewelers.
