CANADA have left me with the im pression that nothing got final ly settled in the recent elections there True Prime Minister John Diefenbakcr and his Con servative Party suffered a set back hut they still constitute the biggest crowd under one politi cal tent True also Lester B Pearson and his Liberal Party which held sway in Canada for more than 20 years when Diefenbaker scored a smashing victory in 1958 made a substantial gain in last months election From 51 scats in the national parlia ment the Liberals jumped to 99 only 17 fewer than Diefen bakcrs Progressive Conserva tives The Canadin legislature has 2G5 scats This means there must be 133 scats for a ma jority The Dicfenhaker tota dropped from an un precedented high of 206 to 1JG scats 17 under the contro level The Social Credit Party ended up with 30 seats and the New Democratic Party landed 20 The Canadians with whom I talked expressed their gravest fear about the disposition in this election to break up into splinter parties They were dis tressed by those 30 seats which went to the Social Credit group and the 20 which went to the New Democratic Party These total 50 and constitute almost a fifth of the total in parlia ment Canadians with a sense of AngloSax on conscious of the fact that a country with more than two major parties cannoi be assured of democratic gov ernment that is to say govern mcnt based on majority full respect it should a ways be added for the right of Ihe minority To form a government Die fenbakcr must work out a cdali tion The most likely course will be to get together with the Social Credit adherents Am when that happens there mus be some concessions and com promises And when this hap pens you have something quite different from pure quill de mocracy Shades of France Italy and Greece where un natural alliances have had sterilizing effect even a para lyzing effect down through the years The alternative to this course Is another election in the not distant future And thats prc cisely what the Canadian cili zens in western Ontario witl whom I chatted arc hoping wil happen Their assumption i that there would be a marked falling away from the mino parlies and a real showdown as between Diefenbaker and Pear son A person looking for them can spot a lot of similarities ark parallels as between Unitcc Stales and Canada so far as po litical parlies and political is sues arc concerned As a matte of fact theres a real danger o going loo far in this direction This can lead lo judging by lha which is apparent rather than that which is real by the froll rather

daily program of vigorous physical activity This conclusively shows how much re mains to be done and this is the critical time of the year The President urged that school officials plans for fall
