Another Is Allan Lawrence, Ontario's provincial secretary for justice. He is the man who camo close to beating Premier William Davis In the race for the leadership of the Ontario Conservative party. A Toronto newspaper (The Globe and Mail) carried a front page story this week that the Conservative party has five na- tionally known figures lined up ready lo announce their canda- cics as soon as Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau decides on Iho date of the election. It claimed the party strategy was to have Ihese men make their announce- ments simultaneously. Tho report caused some sur- prise In the office of Progres- sive Conservative Leader Stan- field. A spokesman said that tha party had several nationally known figures who had been ap- proached and several had indi- cated they would consider enter- ing the campaign. But it was "news" to officials In the office of the leader that five had been lined up to maka a simultaneous announcement. They added with a smile "sounds like a good Idea, may act on it." Tho Conservatives were en- couraged by tho reply given by Mr. Hoblin. They said It Indi- cated he was seriously thinking about standing as a candidate. "We want very much to sea ilm In said a spokesman for Mr. Stanlield.

At the same time, a bill has been introduced in Congress for a government-backed program to promote demand for bread and other wheat products in the United States. Opponents say this also could result In higher prices. The American Bakeirs Associ- ation, which represents about l-.OOO bakeries, said Thursday that an "extraordinary price movement for flour" since the Soviet wheat agreement has in- creased U.S. costs by approxi- mately two-thirds a cent per pound of bread. A pound loaf of bread cur- rently costs about 25 cents. There was no mention of how much of an increase is antici- pated, but industry spokesmen said earlier this week it could he from two to three cents a loaf.

Congress, meanwhile, is con- sidering a bill to establish a industry council to pr'cP mote demand for wheat prod- ucts through a research and ad- vertising campaign. It would be financed by a levy on processed wheat and opponents argue that the cost of up to million a year ultimately would passed on to the consumer. be Mr. Smith, a native of Hamilton, Ontario, joined Inlernalional Harvester In 1929.
