PM serves longer than Dief By JIM POLING OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau marked his day in office Wednesday by saying it's quality, not quantity, that counts. Mr. Trudeau, 54, now has been in office longer than John Diefenbaker, the only surviving former prime minister. Mr. Diefenbaker, 78, served days between June 21, 1957, and April 22, 1963. The extra day placed Mr. Trudeau terms of length of time in among the country's 14 prime ministers since Confederation. Mr. Diefenbaker dropped to seventh. Only Mackenzie King, Sir John A. Macdonald, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, Sir Robert Borden and Louis St. Laurent served longer. "I've always tried to tell the Canadian people that quality is more important than Mr. Trudeau said in an interview. He said he never has be- lieved in trying to break other person's records. "I don't believe in com- peting against others. In the pursuit of excellence, you try to compete against yourself." Mackenzie King, in three separate stints in office be- tween 1921 and 1948, served longest of any prime minister. Sir John spent days as prime minister between 1867 and 1891, Sir Wilfrid from 1896 to 1911, Sir I Robert from 1911 to 11920 and Mr. St. Laurent days from 1948 to 1957. Mr. Trudeau will have to serve continuously until JVov. 25, 1976. to achieve one day more than Mr. SL Laurent, and to Jan. 20, 1977, to be in office longer than Sir Robert However, to surpass Mr. King and to become the prime minister with the longest time in office, Mr. Trudeau would have to serve continuously until Sept 27, 1989. Asked about that possibility, Mr. Tnioeau grinned and said it's fine if a person can do many good things and achieve "a bit more longevity in the "Bat it's not oar purpose to remain here just for the sake of remaining here a long time." Prison building program set By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) Solicitor- General Warren Allmand Wednesday announced a five- year building program designed to relieve overcrowding in Canada's penitentiary service. No cost figures were an- nounced for the flexible pro- gram but the construction of six medium security institutions starting in the next fiscal year is expected to be in excess of million. The program calls for the eventual replacement of the elderly high-walled and outmoded maximum security penitentiaries at Dorchester, N.B., St. Vincent de Paul, Que., Kingston, Ont, and New Westminster, B.C. but Mr. Al- Imand's announcement gave no indication when in the five years work will start on this. In fact the program gives no details past the first year. After that the government will review the situation to see if a variety of factors, ranging from greater federal- provincial co-operation to a possible decline in the prison population, make continued building necessary. The fact there would be such a program had been well known for some time, but it had been expected the higher priority would be given to replacing the elderly and overcrwoded British Columbia penitentiary. BUILDINGS PLANNED The first-stage, some of which has already been announced, calls for new medium security institutions at: B.C., and else- where on the British Columbia lower mainland. the Edmonton and Winnipeg areas. These are in addition to the recent acquisition by the federal government of the Bowden Institute from the Alberta government It will be made into a medium security penitentiary. new Ontario medium security institution at a site in the heavily-populated area between Toronto and London yet to be selected. Already announced is renovation of parts of the old Kingston penitentiary Additional accommo- dation for medium security prisoners in the Atlantic provinces The first-stage also calls for a start on a new psychiatric institute at the University of similar one will be built in Halifax a community correctional centre in Quebec City. Work already has started in Quebec on renovations to the old St. Vincent de Paul, which must used on a temporary basis to relieve overcrowding. BUILDINGS TO BE SMALL The feature of all new in- stitutions will be their relative smallness to old-style prisons. Population will be between 150 and 180 prisoners This is in line with current thinking, allowing for greater freedom within while security is concentrated on the perimeter. This creates an atmosphere believed to be conducive to rehabilitation. Authorities said there are too many variables to be able to put a firm price on the first- stage program. These include everything from the cost of material to wages of skilled labor. But a penitentiaries spokes- man said a medium security prison could cost between million and million and that the service itself is anticipating a cost of about million. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Dmtal Mechanic Capitol Furniture BMg. PHONE: 320-7684 German workers get equality BONN- (Reuter) The West German cabinet approved Wednesday a bill intended to give workers an equal voice with shareholders in the running of all large industrial concerns. The cabinet, meeting under Chancellor Willy Brandt, also approved the basic outlines of another bill to give wage and salary earners a share in the profits of industry. The "co-determination" law, to apply to companies employing more than persons, is to be presented to parliament without delay, Labor Minister Walter Arendt has told parliament the government plans to bring it into force by Jan. Brandt said the law putting worker-directors in the board- rooms of big industry would "give labor effective equality with capital "to a greater ex- tent than anywhere else in the world. At first, it will apply to al- most 600 concerns, including world-famous giants like Krupp, Daimler-Benz, Bosch, Grundig, Siemens and Volkswagen Under the bill the new worker-directors would have the same number of seats on the supervisory boards of the big firms as the shareholders' directors.
