(Photos by John Arms) ARROGANCE GONE' Trudeau a subdued leader these days FEEDING THE HUNGRY Will oceans be a solution? By JAY WALZ j ' New York Times Service ' OTTAWA - With the ranks of the Liberal party thinned by election reverses, Prime Minister Trudeau is a sobered, subdued leader in the House of Commons these days. "He has lost his arrogance," an opposition member conceded somewhat ruefully. "He doesn't rise to bait - with choice epithets and that put-down Gallic shrug of his." In the old days, Trudeau, taunted by enemies across the aisle, might call them "nobodies." Once he addressed a tormentor as "the honorable stinker." Now the long hair is clipped. Tweed jackets and slacks have given way to business suits, flaring neckerchiefs to conservative ties. The daily Commons question periods are, accordingly, duller than they used to be. LEARNING Aides to Trudeau view what is described as his newly-acquired spirit of conciliation not as a sign of weakness, indifference or boredom - as some critics have said - but as a sure indication of his determination to "learn the lessons of the election." In other words, they say, "he's listening." A somewhat different perspective on the same phenonv enon was sketched by a seasoned Trudeau watcher who, in a recent conversation, reflected the widespread feeling that the "chastening" election last October has made a serious politi- cian, even a real pro, out of the 53-year-old intellectual who once took a cavalier approach to politicking. "Sure," Trudeau's a chastened mam," the source commented, "but he won't quit. You can bet he'll fight to keep his job. He's come to like being prime minister." In a Commons in which the Conservatives, forming the official opposition, are just two seats short of the Liberals' strength (107 to 109), the aggressive New Democrats, with 31 seatsA hold a firm balance of power. Social Credit members and Independents occupy the rest of the 264 seats. EFFORT To stay in office Trudeau is making an earnest effort to develop a legislative program that will win the support of the socialist - oriented New Democrats while demonstrating to the people that his government is still running the country. The metamorphosis of Pierre Trudeau from freewheeling intellectual to bare - knuckled campaigner, while evident, may not be clearly visible before the next campaign - expected as soon as the climate, meteorological and political, warms. The next campaign will not be like the "naive" one he conducted last fall, he promised. An aide said one election lesson Trudeau had learned was that a politician fights fire with fire and does not just discuss generalities. A defeated candidate in the west complained that Trudeau, I while "drifting" through his constituency on a campaign visit, assured the voters that "the land is strong." "He didn't bother to answer attacks on his controversial English - French bilingualism program on grounds that all that is past, everybody understands about it," the candidate said. "But they didn't. What people wanted to hear ever more was a specific program to make jobs and stop inflation. That way we lost the West." Liberals won only seven of 68 seats in districts west of Ontario. The 56 Liberal winners in Quebec overload the party caucus with French-Canadians. It is considered significant that a defeated Liberal, Martin O'Connell, a Toronto economist and securities dealer, has been named Trudeau's principal secretary and chief of staff. As a practical politician O'Connell may be expected to bring MP's closer to the prime minister's attention and to improve his sometimes-frayed relations with them. A close associate said the prime minister was eager for another chance to persuade alienated Westerners that his program to upgrade the status of French would defuse Quebec separatism and help unite Canada. "He feels that too many Western Canadian voters think of him as a Catholic French-Canadian fighting Quebec's battles," the aide said. "He has to show that the Liberals fight for the West too. With that in mind Trudeau is understandably cool toward Montreal's plans to stage the 1978 Olympic  Games. The West has always resented its contributions to the $235-mdllion that the federal government paid to meet the deficit of Expo, Montreal's 1967 world's fair. They suspect-that the Quebec-dominated Liberal government will end up rescuing the mayor of Montreal, Jean Dra-peau, from the financial pitfalls of another extravaganza. A $310 million Olympics deficit is anticipated, WEAK Trudeau has steadfastly promised not to underwrite Dra-peau's project. However, the prime minister has agreed, reluctantly and begrudgingly, to authorize the post office and the federal mint to issue com-meorative stamps and coins to help finance the games. The other day the prime minister's weak support of Drapeau and his lack of Olympics spirit drove Norman Smith, recently-retired editor of the Ottawa Journal, back to'his typewriter. Alluding to the prime minister's old-time enthusiasm for athletics and physical fitness, Smith wrote: "This deep-sea diver, this skier, this judo expert, this undoubtedly fit outdoors man; he above all could whirl up a genuine Canadian enthusiasm for these games if he would. But it seems politics doth hedge his ardor; his ey� Is on a different ball." By ERIC SHARP ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. CAP) - Dreamers foresee a day when ocean farms will cover vast areas of the deep, and hungry multitudes will dine on whale steaks and oysters. Then there is Frank Hoff, a biologist whose ocean farming is limited to only a few small tanks of sea bass, pompano and fresh-water shrimp. "You've got to start somewhere," he says. Hoff and his staff at the Florida Marine Research Laboratory here toil over the scientific molehills on which they hope commercial mountains will be built. "There's plenty of talk about sea farming, but little real information on how you go about doing it," Hoff says. "What we're trying to develop is the oceanic equivalent of the chicken farm-everything grown here, from the egg up." Hoff and eight other biologists and technicians operate on an annual budget of $76,000, including some federal government support. PLAN TO EXPAND The lab is working with oysters as well as shrimp, bass and pompano. "We're about ready to try a commercial sized operation with the fresh water shrimp," Hoff says. "The black sea bass v should be ready for commercial You'd better hurry. Feb. 28th is the last day. ^ The last day J to save on your 1972 income tax.

In a hot and humid room, biologist Charles Dugan entices shrimp to spawn, hatches the eggs, nurses the larvae through 10 moults of their external skeletons and then rears the young shrimp to adulthood. "We use light and temperature to make the shrimp spawn when we want them to," Dugan said. In the wild, perhaps 99 psr cent of the thousands of eggs spawned by each female shrimp will fail to matvre. Diwran savs it has been possible in the lab to protect eggs and larvae and achieve survival rates as high as 36 per cent. Many ocean farmers pin their hopes on pompano, which fetch good prices but are nervous, disease-prone and hard to breed. Hoff believes it would be better to work with members of the sea bass family. The lab has found black sea bass easy to care for and quick to grow in artificial conditions.. "The book says they don't get bigger than two pounds around here," Hoff says, "but we've got several we've pushed above four pounds." SUCCESS WITH OYSTEBJ3 Another experiment has become laboratory legend. Biologist Scott Willis set out to determine whether oysters from polluted water could be harvested, fattened, detoxified and sent to market. He ate some, and had to leave work that day suffering from "oyster's revenge." "But we've found that you can take polluted oysters, put them in vats of running water, feed them a diet of Onely-ground corn meal and they'll be marketable in about six weeks," Willis says. "They cleanse themselves of the pollutants, and the oyster becomes much fatter and firmer than those grown in the wild," he adds. "The whole operation can be run in a small area. About 4,000 oysters would be a commercially feasible crop." GRANT KRISTJANSON General Service Manager DEL KAUPP Service Co-Ordinator WINTER SERVICE SPECIAL!
