Sunset 4.58 p.m. Sd y s Quebec To Be In American Melting Pot QUEBEC, Jan. 24.-4CP) Premier Duplessis says that because Quebec is a distinct entity In Canadian life it does not mean the province" has to live in Isolation. People who- claimed Quebec was building a wall of Isolation by affirming the province's character insulted Canadians in . all other provinces. Such people, he said, really infer that the other provinces have no respect for Quebec and its rights. V Mr. Duplessis made the remarks in the Legislative As-" lembly yesterday during a discussion r a 1 s ed by Georges Lapalme, Liberal opposition I . , .

Changing Character. Mr. Lepalme deplored the changing character of the province and said there ts a risk that Quebec would be engulfed in the great "American melting pot". He said his remarks were, not meant to diminish the place of the province's English-speaking population. But the French-speaking, surrounded by millions of English-speaking people, had to be mindful of safeguarding their character. Mr. Duplessis agreed with Mr. Lapalme about the need to examine the possibility of changing the name of many localities. But the Premier said Mr. Lapalme's suggestion for a provincial linguistic office was perhaps beyond the scop of the government. He said spoken French in 'Driving From Dance Girl Killed Near Napanee NAPANEE. Ont.. Jan. 14.

Mr. Lapalme said film .makers who want to publicize Quebec should try to avoid old cliches which give a false im pression of the province. Script writers for . television should guard against use of newly-coined words. Quebec speech contained many old French expressions but it was not a patois.

"Apart from that wall, mostly oackaeed foods suffered .moke damage. It's impos-k sible to tell right away how much food was damaged but it looks at the moment as though . it was no more than $3,000 worth." The store and its contents were insured. Value of the stock is estimated at $7,000. RCAF Upland firefighter had the flame, under control within half an hour. The alarm was turned in by an identified passerby. - Mr. Sherman own. the business and rents the building under an agreement with IGA and the RCAF. The upper storey was used for storage purposes.

The public trial, in the Havana Sport Palace while not likely to enhance foreign confidence in Fidel Castro, are well understood by his fellow Cuban, Canadian, -t- and other friend, of Cuba have fear, that mob call, for blood won't be conducive to justice in Havana, that Castro ' should have waited for the prudence of perspective. Certainly part of the answer i. in the volatile Cuban temperament and Castro can point to the strongest popular support not just mob aup- port for hi. .tern procedure. " Popular Witt. The Thursday demonstrations, in which an estimated 750,000 people turned out to cheer him and hi policies. provided one indication of the popular will and there have been similar indications in the province. All this shows that th ouutd world la learning ow for th first tint just how bad thing wet la Cuba during th dictatorship of Batista and th many years be, ruled behind th On a television program.

The CBC warned all its em ploye, who had refused to cross the picket lines set up by the producer, that they must be back today or consider them selves fired. For technicians and other employe, working broken hour., the final deadline, waa Monday morning. Jt waa believed that mm ol the 1.200 CBC employe here might return to work today. None have received pay for the past four weeks. They received a personal warning in writing stating that thus wa. th "last chance". Break Labor Front One of the six unions, which had so far respected the prod ucer's picket line., broke the labor front last night and ordered its n embers to return to work. But local leader rebelled against, th order. Hugh Seddwick, Canadian president of the International Alliance of Theatrical and Stage Employes (AFL-CIO) said in a telegram to the CBC from Ham ilton that Montreal business agent Yvon Dansereau -"has been instructed to take all necessary steps to hav our people returned to their jobs". Dansereau, however, fired off another telegram to Hamilton deploring th order and saying -"w prefer -to abide by the results of a M percent, secret ballot In favor of maintaining sup- porrio the producer.' asso - . elation' He said he believed the na tional headquarters' sttitude was " undemocratic . and added , "we inform all the members of I the unions that we are respect- ing the picket line of our soli darity Th . otjler by Seddick to Montreal -member of 1ATSE to return to work wa -the second such order during the strike. The Association of Radio and Television Employes of Canada (ARTEC) told its members to return to their Jobs two weeks sgo.

Th criticism has beta directed at th cpeed and summary nature of th executions, not at the principle of capital punishment.
