About SCO persons crowded a large lecture hall and a similar number watched on closed-circuit tele- vision in a adjacent room as Mr. Trudeau fielded a wide range of questions submitted in advance by members of the university's graduate society. Asked whether Canada was given all the necessary background to make its decision en joining the Inter- national Commission of Control and Supervission in Vietnam, Mr. Trudeau said Canada "went in with its eyes open." "We had doubts from the outset and now it's obvious the combatants aren't really "observing the peace. It's tempting to say it's a loser's game but we do have a defence establishment and I can't think of any greater marginal utility for those forces at borne than there is in Vietnam." "We should at least see if it (the peace' agreement) can stick and that's a decision we book carefully. I think Canadian opinion has supported that. "We have to be consistent. We can't blame the U.S. for staying there and then blame them for pulling out with no peace." The prime minister said he does not believe there Is a real threat of Western separatism although a feel- ing of alienation does exist in that part of the country. He drew a burst of laughter when he hastened to add with a grin that this alienation "also exists in the East, North and South." Refierring to regional and other tensions in the Canadian federal system, he said "very few people in Canada want to destroy the desoite oc- casional exploitation of such tensions by politicians.

LOW TONIGHT 25, HIGH SUMKU 4a; St'XNY Price review board decision By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau told the Com- mons Friday he hopes to make an announcement soon regard- ing the possible formation of a price review board. He said the cabinet was "very impressed by the serious nature of the work done by the committee. I hope we shall be in a position to make an an- nouncement of our attitude to- ward the report in the not too distant future." t The cabinet came under heavy attack in the Commons for failing to take action to cope with the soaring cost of living. The pressure continues to mount on the government weekly to resort to controls to curb tie inflationary pressures. Mr. Trudeau fell back on the report of the Commons food prices committee report, as a possible aid to curbing rising prices. The special committee urged the government to consider es- tablishing an "indeepndent food prices review board equipped with such powers as are neces- sary to review and the it report to the Minister of Con- sumer and Corporate Affairs Herb Gray. The committee also asked the government to give considera- tion to the need for introducing legislation governing the nutri- ent content of foods sold to Ihc consumer and requiring nutri- tional labelling. It was impera- tive that nutrition information be brought home to the con- sumer, said the committee. Finance Minister John Turner also came under fire in the house.
