SCHREYER NOTLEY SALTSMAN KIERANS It's anybody's ball game NDP leadership race a tossup OTTAWA (CP) Ed Broadbent's withdrawal from the New Democratic Party leadership race ap- parently throws the con- test wide open with no front runner in sight. Party spokesmen speculated Monday, after the surprise weekend announcement by Mr. Broadbent, that more than 12 potential candidates might con- sider seeking the leadership. "It's anybody's ball game at this one official said. "It would be ridiculous to bet on a winner now." The new leader will be elected in July when delegates from across the country assemble in Winnipeg. He or she will succeed David Lewis, defeated personally in the July 8 general elec- tion. The concensus among New Democrats on Parliament Hill is that Mr. Broadbent, the Osh- awa-Whitby MP elected parliamentary leader following the election, would have won hand- ily. "His performance in the Commons convinced a lot of people he could do the the official said. "But his decision is final and he won't accept a draft." A university professor, Mr. Broad- bent withdrew from the race to spend mor.e time with his wife and two children. Among those who might run now are at least four MPs from the 16-member federal NDP caucus, Premier Ed Schreyer of Manitoba, one or more of the NDP members defeated July 8, and an assortment of others in- cluding former Liberal cabinet minister Eric Kierans, British Colum- bia NDP MLA Rosemary Brown, Saskatchewan At- torney General Roy Romanow and Grant Motley, Alberta NDP leader The most likely possibilities from the federal caucus appear to be Lome Nystrbm, party whip and MP for Yorkton Melville; Stuart Leggatt (New Max Saltsman (Waterloo- and John Rodriguez (Nickel Two former Toronto MPs, Terry Grier and John Harney, also are considered possible candidates. There is 'some speculation that Mr. Lewis would use his in- fluence to stop Mr. Schreyer if it appeared that the Manitoba premier might run and win. Mr. Schreyer has had his differences with other NDP premiers. He delivered what many considered a slap in the face to Mr. Lewis during the July 8 cam- paign by endorsing some form of wage and price controls, the key plank in the Con- servative election plat- form. "Things like that aren't the leadership or the rank and the spokesman said. "Schreyer would have support but he wouldn't walk away with it." Mrs. Brown, a left- leaning former social worker elected to the B.C. legislature in 1972, is rated a good bet to enter as a women's can- didate. "She'll have some clout with delegates if she decides to said another official. Mr. Kierans is favored by some party supporters but is con- sidered a doubtful con- tender. Although he has endorsed some NDP economic and resource policies, he is not a par- ty member and has de- clined interest in offering. Among NDP premiers, Mr. Schreyer is considered the most likely though he has said he will not run. Premiers Allan Biakeney of Sas- katchewan and Dave Barrett of British Columbia are con- sidered unlikely to enter. "Biakeney could probably have it for the asking if he wanted it one organizer said. "But both he and Barrett have to try for second terms provin- eially. Neither is likely to run." No candidates have. formally declared. The convention is scheduled July 4-7 at the newly- opened Winnipeg Convention Centre.

Phone 327-2805 MONTREAL (CP) Lu- cien Rivard is back in town: The man whose name is welded to a scandal that seared the government of the late prime minister Lester B. Pearson in the mid-1960s arrived from New York after serving nine years of a 20-year sentence for narcotics smuggling. "It wasn't a bad ex- the 59-year-old former resort operator said of his prison years in federal penitentiaries in Atlanta, Ga., and Lewisburg, Pa. A mob of reporters and pho- tographers pounced on him at his arrival at Montreal Inter- national Airport. "No was the terse re- ply he made when asked what his plans were. he added when questioned on reports he in- tended to operate gambling casinos in Spain or Haiti. Rivard said he intended to spend some time in the Laurentian hills north of here where his wife, Marie, was waiting. "I never did anything wrong so how can I change my the harried man, deported and barred for life from the United States, told reporters. "Are you going to make a skating rink in the Lauren- he was asked. "If you supply the he answered. The hurrried banter referred to Rivard's outlan- RIVARD dish 1965 escape from Montreal's Bordeaux Jail, where he was awaiting ex- tradition to the U.S. on the narcotics charges. While the temperature that March 2 night was a balmy 42 degrees, Rivard and fellow in- mate Andre Durocher obtain- ed permission to go out with a hose to flood the prison skating rink. They used the hose to go over the wall. Mr. Favreau made a pass- ing reference to the case in a September conversation with Mr. Pearson, who apparently forgot about it until it hit Parliament like a bomb Nov. 23, 1964. Mr. Pearson told Opposition members that he had first heard of the matter a couple of days before. The uproar prompted the government to establish the Dorion inquiry to clear up the matter. The web of intrigue uncov- ered at the inquiry caused Mr. Justice Dorion to rap Mr. Favreau for poor judgment. Though found to have acted in- nocently, Mr. Favreau, top Quebec lieutenant to Mr. Pearson and mooted as his successor as Liberal party leader, quit his job. Guy Rouleau, parliamen- tary secretary to the prime minister and chairman pf the parliamentary Liberal caucus, was found trying to use influence to spring Rivard from jail. He lost both these posts and his seat as MP for Montreal-Dollard. Denis was convicted in court. The prime minister was ac- cused by some of having per- mitted the case to fester for months and of misleading Parliament as to when he first heard about it. The inquiry showed that Rivard's wife had raised alternately described in testimony as bail money for her husband or as a contribu- tion to Liberal coffers. Wallace warns U.S. leaders MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) George Wallace began a third term as governor of Ala- bama Monday with a warning to the leaders of the United States that the people "deserve and will demand" a full accounting from those responsible for a faltering economy and mismanaged government. Wallace, in his inaugural ad- dress, made no mention of what part, if any, he might play in the 1976 election. But "with an abiding interest in national he said he will "speak out when and where necessary." Wallace has generally been regarded as a likely candidate for president again. 20" diagonal compact.
