The Liberal Conference on Western Objectives is billed as "part of the listening process in understanding the message last OCT. only seven of 68 Western seats were won by fed- eral Liberal it is also a prelude to a Calgary conference on Western eco- nomic opportunities. "This meeting could see some real a defeated British Columbia Liberal candidate said Thursday. "We won't be confining ourselves sinrnly to Western bs talking about our party's proach to these problems and this goes right to the top." But with the Calgary confer- ence looming, when Prime Min- ister Trudeau will face four pre- miers from opposing political camps, sources doubt whether Ibe 160 delegates here will create any divisions within the party. sition members confronted the Liberals with charges of con- flict of interest involving the daughter of a cabinet minister, renting'government office space and financing of student hous- ing projects. Mr. Trudeau said a public in- quiry win be appointed if neces- sary to look into details sur- rounding construction of four co-operative student housing projects in Ontario. The allegation that the same builders and architects were in- volved in construction of Roch- dale, Neill-Wycik and Tartu col- leges in Toronto and Pesialozzi College in Ottawa was made in the Commons Monday by EMon Woolliams Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford repeated Thursday that in February he had ordered an internal investigation of the projects, financed partially through Central Mortgage and Housing Corp. Mr. Trudeau said there is "nothing at this point" in the CMHC investigation to indicate a public inquiry is needed. Mr. Trudeau said he did. not think the incident involved a conflict of interest.

The highest amount spent in the campaign last fall was more than by Con- servative Steve Roman in his unsuccessful campaign against Barnett Danson NOT TOUGH ENOUGH David Lewis, New Demo- cratic leader, said the legisla- tion does not go far enough and has loopholes. He said the donation limit will not prevent corpo- rations from concealing large contributions. They could merely pass out donations, or some figure below that, to dozens of individual candidates across the country. He also attacked a clause that restricts reimbursement from the federal treasury to candi- dates polling at least 20 per cent of the vote. While it will cut out "freak and nuisance" candidates as in- tended, be said, it also work to the detriment of serious candidates for smaller but rec- ognized parties, such as the NDP. Mr. Lewis contended that Lib- eral and Conservative reliance on corporate donations results in "an inevitable close relation- ship" that affects the way both parties govern. However, be said, be would not risk losing the bill entirely by holding out for the changes he wants. The bill was far bet- ter than anything ever in- troduced and should become law as quickly as possible.

Horner makes apology OTTAWA (CP) The parlia- mentary rulebook caught up with Jack Horner (PCr-Crow- fost) Thursday, forciag'him to v.itbdraw a statement in which he accused Prime Minister Trudeau Wednesday of telling the Commons "a downright He." "I did utter the Mr. Horner admitted as he apolo- gized to Speaker Lucien Lamou- reux and agreed to retract it. Normally, House rules would force an immediate retraction. Failure to 'do so could lead to suspension for unparliamentary language.. But Mr. Horner shouted the remark without rising from his seat and there was some ques- theory at whc was responsible. No one doubted Wednesday that Mr. Horner was .the culprit and be admitted it later in the day. But he did not confess when questioned at the time by Mr. Lamoureux.

Drijber complained Thursday that the Canadian embassy in South Africa had not aided bun and his wife dur- ing their stay, and suggested the external affairs department had not pressed its investigation adequately. But he added: "They have done as much as they can, I think." Mr. Sharp told reporters he shares the Drijbers' dis- satisfaction with the ex- planation supplied by Zambia for the incident. He repeated that the government is pressing for more information. Canada could not pursue its own investigation In Zambia, just as the United States could not carry out investigations in Canada, Mr. Sharp said. Dr. Drijber bad urged a com- plete statement by Mr. Sharp on the case to the Commons, and the minister told reporters: "I think maybe I will."
