The Citizen, Ottawa, Tuesday, March 20, 1984, Page 11 SonQiiEaiiei tain patp Chretien Both Trudeau and Finance Minister Marc Lalonde have tried to come to Chretien's aid with Schools statements that delegates vote for the best man, regardless of whether he is English-speaking or French-speaking. Regan predicted that Turner will win the leadership on the first ballot at the June 16 convention. Regan said he will be Atlantic provinces co-ordinator for the Turner campaign. Indian Affairs Minister John Munro is expected to announced his leadership candidacy Wednes- day, Health Minister Monique Begin is still making up her mind whether to run or not, and Liberal insider Jim Coutts, former principal secretary to the prime minister all but formally an He said the Grey Nuns, who operate the private grades 11, 12 and 13 at the school, are losing between $300,000 and $400,000 each year. The extra provincially-funded students would ease the financial burden on the nuns.

The board operates grades 9 and 10 at the school, but grades 11 to 13 are run as a private institution without government money. Trustee Guy Lalonde supported Beauchesne, saying pupils in grades 7 and 8 should not be asked to mix with those in grades 12 and 13. Trustee Pat Bowie said the two-tier system is necessary for the survival of Catholic secondary education in Ottawa because statistics show far fewer students went to Catholic high schools from kin-dergarten-to-Grade 8 elementary schools than from two-tier systems. There are 21 k-6 schools and seven k-8 schools in the OSSB system. Trustee Bonnie Kehoe, who said she had six children who attended local junior high schools, also favors the two-tier system.

separate room. But there were no demonstrations or placards such as those at last year's meeting, when the board closed four schools. Brian Boyden, head of the parents' committee studying the amalgamation of St. Patrick's and St. Peter's junior high schools, said parents wanted both schools to stay open, although there is enough room at St.

Patrick's to accommodate the 600-700 students from both schools. He said the board will likely find it necessary to open a new junior high in the Greenboro-Hunt Club area in the next few years because of growing populations. Sheila Hill, a parent representing St. Leonard's advisory committee, said parents felt there were enough students in the neighborhood to keep the school open. She also said parents felt the facilities and grounds at St.

Leonard's were superior to Our Lady of Fatima, where most St. Leonard's students are being transferred in September. "The streets are also busier around Our Lady of Fatima. St. Leonard's just looked like the better school.

She also said she expects many parents who transferred their children to public schools when Our Lady of Fatima was closed in 1979 will return their children to the Catholic school when it reopens. Most of the closures, which reduce the board's 57-school complement by about 18 per cent, were passed with little or no debate. But the move to introduce the two-tier system throughout the English sector produced a lively argument. It was approved by a 10-4 margin with one abstention, but Trustee Noe Beauchesne served notice that he will raise the matter again. "There are no strong arguments that I've heard pedagogically favoring children going to a junior high school." He added that it was clear the board approved the plan to help save Immaculata High School, which will now have more students through the introduction of grades 7 and 8.

On Monday, International Trade Minister Gerald Regan announced he had decided not to contest the leadership, but to back former finance minister John Turner as "the one man who can rebuild the Liberal Party from sea to shining sea." Regan became the 10th minister to endorse Turner publicly. Chretien's decision comes after days of agonizing over the leadership. He complained that the dice were being loaded in Turner's favor with constant repetition by some Liberals that it's an anglo-phone's turn to win."

All four are English-language schools. The OSSB does not have any French-language junior high schools.

AS the session produced more arguments. Former President Sulieman Franjieh "refuses categorically to limit the power of the president such as they (the Moslems) are proposing," a spokesman for the 73-year-old Maronite Christian said. Since 1943, all presidents of Lebanon have been Maronite Christians. Conference sources said arguments against Moslem demands for an end to the Christian political prhvileges were led by Franjieh and former President Camille Chamoun, 83. ment on a final compromise document when the full session of nine leaders opened late Monday night after missing three scheduled opening times.

But after the 90-minute session ended, presidential adviser Wadih Had-dad said there were "questions" about a new nine-page document presented to the conference by Lebanese President Gemayel. The document was supposed to have been largely agreed to during private negotiations that preceded the full session, but instead of a final agreement proposed peace agreement that offered limited political reforms and appeared to satisfy almost no one. Jumblatt called the agreement "rubbish." The bargaining over a new power-sharing formula was carried out against the background of unrelenting violence in Beirut. Police in Beirut said today 22 people have been killed and 104 wounded since a ceasefire was declared a week ago by Lebanese factional leaders meeting in Lausanne.

A 90-minute full session adjourned Monday with leaders arguing about a SYSTEMS DESIGNED AND INSTALLED mrmrnvm mem Adopt a new Tradition styled for your comfort could lead to a resurgence in inflation. However, Sauve said the rise in interest rates of 1.5 per cent over 18 months was relatively modest and would not irreparably damage the recovery. The economy is forecast to grow by 4.4 per cent in 1984 and by 3.1 per cent in 1985. The expected slower growth in 1985 is due to the effect of higher interest rates.

However, Sauv6 said, a 3.1 per cent growth rate is still "respectable'. Slater warned against panicking over the dollar's lower value. "The fundamental position of the Canadian economy hasn't changed much," he said. The rise in the U.S. prime rate had been widely expected because other interest rates in the United States have been climbing in the open market since the start of this year.

And the speed of the banking industry's adoption of a higher prime rate was a sign that "banks don't think the increase in money market rates will be reversed any time soon," said Maury Harris, senior financial economist at Paine, Webber, Jackson and Curtis a New York investment house. First National Bank of Chicago, the eighth-largest bank, led the move to raise the prime rate to its highest level since January 1983. Leading banks throughout the U.S. quickly followed, including Bank of America in San Francisco, the largest. The Conference Board survey also indicated there is little cause for optimism on the employment front as the jobless rate is expected to remain stuck at more than 10 per cent in both years.

Sauve said it is questionable whether the economy can experience growth for a prolonged period with high real interest rates. The survey suggested, however, that the value of the Canadian dollar will rise to about 81 cents U.S. this year and next. The currency should benefit from an expected strong trade performance, with exports growing faster than imports, and an adequate spread between Canadian and U.S. interest rates to attract investment capital, the board said.

Economy From page 1 story: Economic forecasts optimistic healthy growth in the United Stales economy will be a major contributor to Canada's economic growth in spite of higher interest rates in both countries because of the major role exports play. According to Pierre-Alain Sauve, a board economist, the U.Sr. growth will be partly because of increased defence increased consumer spending, and. an increase in U.S. business investment to respond to the greater consumer demand.

Expectations of healthy U.S. economic growth gained strength today with the release of a report that indicated the U.S. economy was growing at an estimated annual rate of 7.2 per cent through Match an extremely large rise and- more than two percentage points beyond the forecasts of the Canadian economists. This growth is expected to stir fears that the Federal Reserve Board may move to raise interest rates, to tighten credit, by raising intefest rates, to prevent the economy from overheating. Economists say that to attract investment into the country, Canadian interest rates must stay higher than those in the United States.

Many of Canada's chartered banks now charge the same rate. "It's almost inevitable that Canadian rates will go up," said David Slater, chairman of the Economic Council of Canada. "You caa't avoid them here." Bank of Nova Scotia economist Warren Jestin said the higher U.S. rates meant the downward pressure on the dollar would continue into April. Darryl Rhoades, director of the current economic analysis division of Statistics Canada, said "certainly, higher interest rates can hold the dollar up."

Amnesty said it was told that prisoners held in a segregation unit known as "the hole" were kept naked for up to three weeks and some prisoners were not fed "for days at a time."

When Toronto was granted an American League franchise for the 1977 baseball season, Exhibition Stadium became the only major league park where fans couldn't buy beer. But Rough Rider president, Terry Kielty, said there have been few problems and if anything, beer sales have discouraged fans from smuggling in excessive amounts of alcohol and getting very drunk. "On the whole, the fans have handled it well," he said.
