His statement was part of an answer to the question: "If you were a young American or draft age called up to go to Vietnam, would you come to The prime minister said: "God knows what I would think if I were of that age.

FORCE HAS PLACE On (he question of violence, Mr. Trudeau said that in certain political situations "you have to use force to overthrow police stales." "As a politician I've never had lo face that because I've al- ways lived in a democratic soci- ety. "But I think violence is count- er-productive and it is bad in democratic societies." He was "peaceful" but "not a pacifist in the philosophical sense." "I recognize that in some cases it's more important to have freedom and justice than to have peace. Sometimes you musl live in a violent world in order to get gi'eater justice." In (he far-ranging article, the prime minister said that if a young man is healthy, society should not give him a basic in- come. "He should not be given said Mr. Trudeau. "If he can work and there is work available, he should take his choice. "If he wants lo be a hermit or begger, that's fine. If he wants to move with the sun and live off Ihe land, that's fine "If he is in a society which has work for him I don't think he should theoretically be eligi- ble for welfare."

Talks on urban problems some opposition meeting VICTORIA (CP) As Can- ada's municipal affairs minis- ters met for the second conso- culive day Tuesday behind closed doors, there were indi cations that federal proposals for tackling urban problems through combined federal-pro- vmcial-municipal efforts were meeting opposition from some quarters. Federal Urban Affairs Min- ister Robert Andras, who at- tended Tuesday's sessions, re- fused lo comment on the suc- cess of the conference. Asked if he had accomplished what he had come for, he replied: "Frankly, no, but I don't give up hope." One of Uie conference's priorities was to agree on a fu- lure foimat for tri-governmenl- ]evcl meetings on urban affairs. Pressed [or a statement on the outcome of the talks, Mr. Andras said: "I can'l comment yet. I have promised the par- ties concerned not to say any- thing, but I will say that I am still committed to the policy of meeting urban problems on a tri-govemment level." When, last September, he an- nounced the federal govern- ment's new approach to the mounting problem of urban growth, Mr. Andras said it would in no way harm the au- tonomy of provinces and mu- nicipalities. He said Tuesday that Can- ada's urban problems had not reached "crisis but added: "Time may be run- ning out." The minister, who is to re- turn lo Otlawa today, said a conference communique which was to have been released Monday might be available to- day. The conference ends Thursday.
