B. Pearson will re- organize his cabinet during the summer re- cess now that the Dorion report has been received and Guy Fav- reau has resigned as justice minister. George Mcllraith, president of the privy council and govern- ment House leader, will carry on t as acting justice minister during the summer. However, it is not expected that he will be given the justice portfolio on a permanent basis. He has done such a good job as House leader that He will be left with that important assignment. One lesson that has emerged from the difficulties Mr. Fav- rcau got into is that the House leader should not be burdened with heavy departmental duties. Citizenship and Immigration Minister J. H. Nicholson was being prominently mentioned -as a possible new justice minister. Hon. Allan MacEadicn the present minister of labor may replace Hon. C. M. Drury as minister -of industry and Hon. Maurice Sauve, present minister of forestry would move into the Labor portfolio. These are some of the changes being mentioned in government circles as pos- sible shifts. The prime minister has asked Mr. Favreau to remain in the government in another post and Mr. Favrcnu has agreed. Mr. Pearson emphasized in the House Tuesday night, amid applause from all parties, that Mr. Favreau remained a man of "unimpeachable integrity and unsullied honor." Mr. Favreau might be named secretary of state in the cabinet reorganization.

Mr. Favreau was justified in thinking on the basis of evidence available then but not followed up that prosecu- tions would have been diffi- cult to obtain. On credibility, there is no doubt statements of lawyer Pierre ac- cused Denis of attempting to bribe be accepted in preference to those of De- nis. _______ There "cannot be any doubt" that Raymond Denis, then executive assistant to Mr. Tremblay, offered a 000 bribe to "obstruct the course of justice" in the case of narcotics smuggling sus- pect Lucicn Itivard.

NEWMAN OTTAWA (Special) Al- though the Pearson government had more than two months to prepare for the results of the Dorion inquiry, publication of its report Tuesday caught the Liberal cabinet in complete disarray. The day began in confusion and ended with a typical Pearson compromise which neither exonerates former jus- tice minister Guy Favreau nor cleanses the administration. The cabinet was hastily as- sembled in three hectic sessions and the final decision on Mr. Favreau's future was reached only an hour before Prime Minister Pca.rson rose to an- nounce its details to a hushed Commons. Favrcnu had offered his resignation to Mr. Pearson in mid-morning, shortly after a private consultation with Trans- port Minister J. W. Pickersglll.

At the same time, Mr. Favreau expressed his willing ness to remain a member of the ministry and his anxiety to stay in active politics.
