An exuberant crowd that po- lice estimated at about cheered, yelled and waved as the prime minister rode in the Stampede parade. Government wants NATO base closed REYJAVIK (AP) All par- ties in Iceland's incoming leftist government arc reported agreed that the NATO base at Keflavik must be closed and that its American service- men must go probably with- in four years.

Additional staff was placed on garbage collection to handle a backlog which had piled up ber of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, but that foreign servicemen should not be sta- tioned here during peacetime. The base 30 miles southwest of Reykjavik, and the stationinj of American naval personne there are authorized by a U.S. Icelandic defence pact under NATO auspices. The base has been operalini since 1951. It tracks Sovie plane and ship movements i the North Atlantic. The Rus sians have put pressure on th Icelandic government for som tune to pull out of NATO, or a least to close the base. The now coalition under Pre- mier elect Alafur Johannesso controls 32 of the parliament's 60 seats, including 17 Progres- sives, 10 members of the Com- munist People's Aliance and five of the Liberal Left party. Johannesson leads the Progres- sive party. It is likely that the cabinet will be made up of three Pro- gressives, two Communists and two Liberal Left. Later, after watching bronc nd brahma bull riding and teer wrestling under a bright Alberta sun, he attended a Lib- ral fund-raising barbecue to a uburban park. His wife Margaret showed up or the supper, having arrived n Calgary earlier from her par nts' home in Vancouver. The prime minister took the throttle of an old steam engine or a circuit of the park's loop railway before walking hand-in hand with Mrs. Trudeau hrough the Liberals who )aid each to eat beef and leans. The couple then drove back to the Stampede to watch the chuckwagon races and the grandstand show which featured impressionist Rich Little. Little opened by mimicking a Trudeau news conference. In the parade, the prime min- ister grinned and waved at the spectators as he moved along, dressed in a western suit and hat and mounted on an 18-year- old appaloosa in a silver-stud- ded saddle. Mr. Trudeau was cheered again when he arrived for after- noon rodeo events. The reception was significanl for the prime minister, who came to Alberta with the Liber- als holding four seats in the province to the Conservatives 15. Mr. Trudeau called a Calgary news conference to blast the "false prophets" of the opposi tion who he said have misled Alberta's crop prospects good during the dispute, a city spokesman said.
