The cabinet also took up such subjects as the policy relation- ship between the government and the Liberal party; regional advisory groups; more activi- ties by ministers to put across to the public what the govern- ment is trying to do. i But none of this necessarily means an early election, sources said. "We are just at the beginning of a long process leading to an one informant said. "We are forming a national campaign committee. But this is the first time since 1961 that we feel we are doing this well in advance of an election." TRUDEAU'S DECISION Timing of a general election rests solely with the prime min- ister. The Trudeau government was election in June, 1968, and can endure to the summer of 1973 without calling an election. But a government seldom waits for its full five-year term to expire before calling an elec- tion for fear events will control it and not the other way round. Thus the next general election is generally expected in June nest year, or possibly, in the fall.

Chretien, currently leading a delegation of Canadian experts in Russia to examine building methods in the far north, dis- cussed the research idea during a meeting with Leonid Yef- rempv, vice-chairman of the So- viet committee for science and technology. Tass said Chretien proposed setting up a working group for a program of joint Arctic re- search. "This co-operation would he a new step toward closer relations between our two he is quoted as telling Yefrempv.

They said five more persons died in the area, hit by what of- ficials still called "an unusual outbreak of summer diarrhea." Health officials so far have avoided using the word cholera and have not given any official death toll. The sources said, however, 22 persons were known to have died since the epidemic first hit the fertile Jalon Valley around July 14. Zaragoza Gov. Rafael Orbe Cano said an estimated people, the whole population of the province, have been vacci- nated. had a full-time civilian job last- ing two weeks or more. Among those who had worked and were jobless in April, May and June, the highest incidence of unemployment was among la- borers and unskilled workers, a group in which nearly one in six was without work. Unemployment among the un- skilled, however, was down sharply from the first quarter of 1971, when unemployment ran to nearly 25 per in the workers in that group. Laborers and unskilled workers always find it hardest to get jobs in the depths of win- ter. The number of people looking 'or work who had not worked jefore always goes up in the ate spring and early summer when students leave school. But the percentage of them in the total figure of unemployed in the second quarter of this year per higher than a year earlier, when it was 15 per cent. Joblessness among these new entrants in the labor market rose higher during July, Augusl and September last year than it was in April, May and June. The over-all average rate ol unemployment in the second quarter of 1971 rose to 6.8 per ecent of the total labor force from 6.3 per cent a year earlier But it was down from the average of eight per cent that prevailed in the first three months of this year. QUEBEC (CTi Minister Jerome Choquette said Thursday he has ordered au- thorities' at the provincial police detention centre in Montreal to move Bernard Lortie and Jacques Hose out of isolation into regular cells. He said the transfer was being made in response to a protest by the Quebec Bar Asso- ciation about the conditions under which the two men were I being detained. However, he said the condi- tions were adequate and not as was charged in a letter from Uie as- sociation. The change was being made to avoid any ambiguity. Lortie and Rose, who face trial this fall on kidnapping and murder charges in the death of former Quebec labor minister Pierre Laporte, were being held in special cells.
