It Pays To Shop at EATON'S . . . Where you get the big choice, the best choice, at Moderate Eaton Prices! relief By TOM MITCHELL OTTAWA (CP) - The cost of living hangs over Finance Minister John Turner as he puts the finishing touches on his budget speech this weekend. The government has pledged, in the words of Prime Minister Trudeau, that there will be "some relief" in the speech Mr. Turner presents in the Commons starting shortly after 6 p.m. MST Monday. Statistics Canada's consumer price index marched steadily upward through 1972. In January, latest month for which figures are available, it jumped almost one per cent over December with increases in costs for food and housing, the two biggest items in the consumer dollar. Several avenues are open to Mr. Turner for providing the promise relief and the government has committed itself in at least one-bigger pensions for the elderly. Tax reductions also apperar a distinct probability. The budget, single most important exercise the federal government performs, will be complicated this time by the minority position of the Liberal government in the Commons and the need to hold New Democratic Party support that so far has kept it in office. STILL SOME LEFT OVERS It is also complicated by the fact that legislation to carry out some steps proposed in Mr. Turner's last budget May 8 still has not been handled by Parliament. It was left hanging because of last summer's recess, the September election call by the Liberals and the fact that, after the Oct. 30 election, the Commons returned to work only early in January. The May budget included corporate tax reductions designed to reduce unemployment by spurring plant expansion and creating more jobs. The measures raised the NDP's Hackles. New Democratic Leader David Lewis hinged virtually his entire election "campaign; on the theme of "corporate welfare bums" who, because of government policies, he said, are not paying a fair share of taxes. Peking banquet U. S. presidential adviser, Henry Kissinger and China's Premier Chou En-Lai, centre, arrive at a banquet hall in Peking Friday night. The dinner was given in honor of Mr. Kissinger and his 17-member party who are visiting the country for talks with Chinese leaders. WINNIPEG (CP) - Prime Minister Trudeau re-entered the region that rejected him most heavily in the last federal election with' a plea Friday for a "new national policy" aimed at resolving regional disputes. Accompanied by his wife Margaret, the prime minister urged 700 Liberals at a $75-a-plate fund-raising dinner to help "reforge the alliance" of Canada's regions by letting Ottawa know what Westerners want. A special conference on the West, promised in the throne speech, would give Westerners an opportunity to help find solutions to the things that alienate them and give them the feeling that they, like Quebecers and Qntarians, have power in the capital.

YOUR QUESTIONS AND COMMENTS WILL BE WELCOMED It was Mr. Trudeau's second appearance on the Prairies since the election. In December he met Western party leaders in Regina where he outlined the government's $350-million winter works program and announced measures to tighten the unemployment insurance program. He made no promises this time. His speech, in a province that elected two of the seven Liberal MPs from Western Canada, was sprinkled with historical anecdotes emphasizing what he said was the "glue of nationhood"- the will of a people to keep a country together. Federal politicians face their toughest job when they try to reconcile opposing regional concerns without weakening the country as a whole, he said. But a solution to that problem was needed as a foundation on which to build the "new national policy." oils SANTO DOMINGO (AP) -Francisco Caamano Deno, rebel leader in the 1965 Dominican civil war, and two other guerrillas were killed by government forces Friday, the army announced. The military said the three men were shot by soldiers hunting insurgents who were reported to have landed on the Dominican coast Feb. 4 from Cuba with plans to overthrow President Joaquin Balaguer. The two other guerrillas were identified as Herberto Lalane and Jose Wellington Ascanio. Fund bill undecided as NDP, Tories switch OTTAWA (CP) - New Demo-era t s and Conservatives switched roles Friday, leaving unpassed a bill for $1.29 billion in extra funds needed for government programs. issues broadcast caution OTTAWA (CP) - The Canadian Radio Television Commission cautioned individual radio stations Friday not to implement a reported agreement between the Canadian Association of Broadcasters C.A.B. and the Association of Chiefs of Police before consulting with the commission. In a telegram to Don Hamilton of Vancouver, president of the C.A.B., commission chairman Pierre Juneau said that the Broadcast Act "imposes on each broadcaster the responsibility for his programming." "The CRTC considers the independent dissemination of news as a primary requirement of this responsibility, said Mr. Juneau. Any restraint on news broadcasting "would be a matter of the most serious concern to the commission." Mr. Juneau's telegram referred to published reports of an agreement between police and private television and radio officials "purportedly giving police greater control over news during crises." The CRTC head said he knew of no such agreement and asked to be advised immediately if such existed. "The commission will expect that individual broadcasters will not implement any agreements such as that referred to in the media reports until consolation with the commission has taken place," said Mr. Juneau.

McDONELL MANUFACTURING 1502 2nd AVENUE SOUTH, LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA The Conservatives, who had prevented the government from getting the money for the last two weeks, suddenly appeared in a hurry Friday to get the bill passed. But a string of NDP members rose to question items in the bill. The $1.29 billion is for the fiscal year ending March 31 and includes $350 million for winters works, $454 million to cover two government loans to the unemployment account and lesser amounts for other programs. The exchange of positions was nearly total when the Conservatives voted with the Liberals to defeat an NDP motion that would have halved an external affairs department request for $490,500. The NDP has been supporting the minority Liberal government on major issues, keeping it in office. Prank Howard (NDP- Skeena), who introduced the motion, accused external affairs of "fantastic waste." The department wants the money to open three new offices abroad. Catcalls and _ jeers erupted 'from NDP benches when the Conservatives rose with the Liberals to oppose the motion. The vote was 72 to six. U.S. dollar steady again TOKYO (AP) - The United States dollar was steady again today on the Japanese exchange as stability appeared to have returned to the world's money markets following a week of devaluation and uncertainty. The dollar finished today's half-day session on the Tokyo market at 264.10 yen, unchanged from Friday's close. Human Quebec solution is a working language MONTREAL (CP) - French must become Quebec's working language because that is the most human solution to the province's linguistic problems, says the chairman of a four-year inquiry into the issue. The abolition of state-supported English schools was considered by the commission, but chairman Jean-Denis Gendron called it a "very drastic and much more brutal" solution. Instead, the commission into the status of French in Quebec "weighed the pros and cons, the social aspects and the necessity and decided to see if people are reasonable," Mr. Gendron said in an interview Friday. .
