Bolh major parties conducted polls in the first three months of the year and, publicly at least, profess lo find encouragement in them. Conservative Leader Hubert Slanficld apparently is finding more to cheer him than is Prime Minister Trudeau, and is demanding a spring election. Trudeau has been re- porled less than content with the resulls of public and parly polls. For that reason, it is said, he is not planning n June elec- tion. But Senator Richard Slan- bury, president of Ihe National Liberal Federation, said in an interview this week that the re- sult of private and public polls are about Ihe same and show Ihe Liberals gaining slrcnglh. KKY TO STRATEGY Polls ore an important part of any political parly's eleclion strategy for Ihey loll leaders what lo emphasize and where to do Bui Ihey lell only the situation at the IJme the polls are taken and all recognize that situations can change radically.

The party was said to be gaining on the Prairies where it has been weak.

The larger number of undc- ded volcrs across the country, i reflccled in a rccenl public is reported lo be of con- ;m lo bolh parlies. But Conservatives say they dve more lo gain from the sil- ation lhan the Liberals, who ow hold 149 of the 2G4 seats in House of Commons, com- ared wilh 72 for Ihe Conserva- ves. In fact, the Conservatives feel hey have nowhere lo go but up n an eleclion. They say the re- ult al Ihc last party poll is the eason Mr. Stanfield is demand- ng thai Mr. Trudeau hold a unc election. The party is particularly uoycd about B.C. where, there re no Conservative MRs and fhere Social Credit Premier A. C. Bcnnell lias stated lie rill oppose Mr. Trudeau.
