"No, it's responded Mr. Trudcau, "because there hasn't been a case for it that I know of." He pointed out Ihat union of the M a r i t i m e provinces, among the Bennett sugges- tions, has been under study for a lengthy period in those jur- isdictions and Ottawa has shied clear of involving itself.

Khrushchev Assesses JFK As Outstanding Statesman c? NEW YORK (CP) Nikita S. Khrushchev, former premier of the Soviet Union wrote a warm tribute in 19C4 to the memory of John F. Kennedy, the assassi- nated United Slates president. Says Bennett Quebecers Run Govt. ROBSON, B.C. (CP) An angry premier W. A. C. Ben- nett says Canada is being run by "a Quebec government." Mr. Bennett, in an interview after he officially opened the Yellowhead Highway linking British Columbia and Alberta, said the federal government gives only token financial sup- port to B.C. highways, while giving revenue from B.C. tax- payers to Quebec, which is al- most as rich in resources as B.C. "We haven't got a Canadian government, it's a Quebec gov- he said. Elaborating, he said three men "all Quebecers" run the federal government. He said they are Prime Minister Trudeau, State Secretary Ge- rard Pelletier and Regional De- velopment Minister Jean Mar- chand. Excerpts from Khrushchev's personal assessment of the president, with whom he engaged in several battles of will, appear in the New York Times. "John F. Kennedy will, no doubt, take his place in history as an outstanding the former Soviet leader wrote. The tribute, together with three cartoons of tape-record- ings of Khrushchev speeches and newspaper clippings on So- viet-U.S. relations, was sent to the John F. Kennedy Memorial Library for its oral-history pro- gram. Transcripts of 300 such oral- history interviews were made available to scholars and re- searchers last week for the first time at the library's temporary headquarters in W a 1t h a m, Mass. As an example of Kennedy's contribution to world peace, Khrushchev cited the treaty banning tests of nuclear weap- ons, signed in July, 1963. Khrushchev was ousted from power four months after he wrote his tribute on June 29, 1964.

"But even in the Marilimes where they have been studying it a long while, it's not an easy solution." He said the vested interests built out of tradition, provincial differences and individual his- tories are the obstacles.

"f believe the first time the issue was seriously discussed was this spring in a meeting in Lethbridge (the One Prairie Province conference sponsored by the Lethbridge Herald and University of "And from what I see, it has got hardly any support.
