And welfare ministers, head- ing home after a federal-pro- vincial conference that ended Friday, may well have been praying that the dough will rise. That homespun analogy was used by Newfoundland welfare minister Ank Murphy an em- p'oyer of colorful phrases dress- ed in an Irish brogue as min- isters summed up results of fare system. Mr. Murphy was comparing the mixing of opinions at the conference to the way his mother made bread. After the blending was done she would pray: "Please, God, let the dough rise." The ministers departed in an apparently-optimistic frame of mind, having adopted as an "appropriate basis" for an overhaul the 14-point blueprint set out in the Commons last week by federal Welfare Minis- ter Marc Lalonde.

He took a lesson in polities from a long time socialist in a private hospital and mst soon to be civil servants at the Celgar pulp and sawmill in Castlegar. The premier's political les- son came from Joe Willis, 85, a long time left wing acti- vist, who campaigned for so- cialist candidates in the early 1900s. Mr. Willis was one of dozens of patients at the Wil- lowhaven Private Hospital with whom the premier talked and joked. Emerging from his meeting with Mr. Willis, Premier Bar- rett turned to newsmen out- side the room and said: "You gujs should have been in there for a real lesson in British Co- lumbia history." The premier arrived here in the second stop on a nine day meet the people tour of the province. The premier's first stop was j the Celgar pulp and sawmill at Castlegar where h2 said he got a "very favorable response" from the workers concerning the government's plan ned takeover of the mills from its owner, Columbia Cellulose. At a S10 a plate dinner here Friday night, Premier Barrett attacked the ''late un- lamented political machine" of the Social Credit party, as he stood on the New Democratic party's legislative record. He received the NDP's legi- slative achievements at the spring session point by point and challenged the opposi'ion parties to campaign against that record in the next provin- cial lection. The audienee of 350. respond- ed vigorously as Mr Barrett ridiculed the Social Credit party for what he continued to call'their "me too" attitude towards XDP legislation He particularly attacked the Social Credit party's voe against the bill to establish the industrial development corp- oration, particularly after Pat Jordan (SC Okanagan- north) had said in the legisla- ture the mght before the vote tlia.t her party would back the bill. Included Jn the of fcdcra proposals were average family allowance payments of ui from the present amend- ments to the Canada Pension Plan (CFF) and guaranteed in- comes and income for disadvantaged groups sue' as the working poor, the agei and the disabled. INCREASE UNANIMOUS The miniVers adopted at the three-day meet- ing the bid to raise 'he family allowances, which will be made taxable. The allowances wil' probably go up Jan. 1, 1974. Provincial governments will have the right to vary the leve of payments, provided nation a minimums set by Parliament are met. Also accepted was a general proposal to amend the Can- ada Pension Plan, but detafls of the changes will be out by a committee including deputy ministers of welfare ox the federal and provincial gov- ernments. Mr. Lalonde had suggests that CPP payments be escalat- ed annually by the rise in thi cost-of-living and that the leve cf maximum pensionable earn- ings, on which benefits are based, be raised to by 1975.
