The prime minister met friendly throngs in several southern Ontario communities and urged them to reject the Conservatives and vote Liberal. "Don't take a chance on Canada. Don't take a chance on he said as he denounced the Conservative plan to impose price and income controls. "Take your choice and vote tor good Liberal candidates and good Liberal policies." He opened the day in Beamsville, a town of west of Hamilton, and then went to Welland, Hespeler, Guelph, St. Catharines and Oakville, before flying home for a two-day break. The Liberals are fighting hard in southern Ontario, where the party suffered heavy losses last time to the Conservatives. Liberal strength in the 88-seat province dropped to 36 seats in 1972. just over half the number the party won in 1968. The prime minister is to re- sume campaigning Tuesday in Quebec and make another tour of Western Canada later in thd week. For Conservative Leader Stanfield, Saturday was the opening day of a seven-day blitz of the province, bringing his anti-inflation proposals to the farm gates. In a hectic 15-hour day, he brought his arguments and handshakes to eight commu- nities, stopping long enough in some of them to defend his proposals to implement a 90- day freeze on prices and incomes. Wherever he was questioned, the 60-year-old leader was asked to expand on his proposals for controls. Would they apply to rents? Yes. they would. Would the temporary freeze go beyond 60 days? "I wouldVt want to be associated with a longer freeze than that." What's the difference between a freeze on wages and a freeze on incomes? "All the difference in the world." While he dealt with the broad spectrum of inflation in television interviews in London and Wingham. Mr. Stanfield related it specifically to the farming business when he hit the small towns. "No one has suffered more from the effects of inflation than the farmers." he told a crowd at a picnic at Hensall. His proposed freeze would not apply at the farm gate, he said. Mr. Stanfield was greeted by warm audiences at all his stops. He went mainstreeting in Walkerton. Port Elgin. Teeswater and Southampton, always shaking hands as he went. He now is on a two-day break and will resume his Ontario campaign Tuesday, establishing overnight headquarters in a Toronto hotel and making daily visits from there. New Democratic Party Leader David Lewis spent the weekend campaigning in northwestern Saskatchewan before flying to Vancouver Sunday from Saskatoon. The NDP leader left Winnipeg early Friday on the 613-mile tour that took him to the Saskatchewan communities of Saskatoon. Kindersley. Unity. North Battleford.'Turtleford. Prince Albert, Shellbrook and Glaslyn. And although Mr. Lewis met only about the same number of voters as the miles he travelled, his aides counted the two-day trip as valuable. Mr. Lewis told voters in Shelibrook Saturday that he saw the election on the Prairies as a plebiscite on orderly grain marketing. "I suggest that Prairie farmers must make up their minds by July 8. If you and they want to let the Liberals and Tories know that you support orderly marketing of all grains, then they must send New Democrats to Ottawa because we're the only ones that support the wheat board without reserva- tion SPECIAL OCCASION GIFTS from THE NOOK Phone 329-0700 Stabilized farm incomes would end "the recurrent periods of despair on the he said. Mr. Lewis is in Vancouver until Tuesday night, when he leaves for Edmonton. He will make overnight stops in Ed- monton and Yellowknife and will be in the Toronto area Thursday, Friday and Saturday. And Social Credit Leader Real Caouette said on English and French-language radio programs Sunday that the reception he got in Western Canada last week indicates there may be a "revival of Social Credit in the West." Mr. Caouette campaigned in the four western provinces be- fore taking the weekend off except for the radio programs. If his party gets the balance of power in the next Parlia- ment, it will not support a Conservative price and income freeze policy. Nomination day in 21 ridings By THE CANADIAN PRESS Far from the shopping plazas, the superhighways and towns of southern Canada, nominees for the July 8 federal election in 21 outlying ridings make their can- didature official today. Nominations in these con- stituencies, scattered across the northern part of the country from Labrador to the Queen Charlotte Islands, close a week earlier than the June 17 date for the remainder of the 264 federal ridings because of the difficulty of distributing election material. Closing time is 2 p.m. local standard time. The sparsely-settled ridings cover 80 per cent of Canada's land area but contain only- seven per cent of the population and eligible voters. On the basis of party con- ventions or early declarations of intentions to run. a total of 62 candidates has been named. The Liberals and Progressive Conservatives have full slates in all 21 ridings and by the weekend New Democratic Party candidates had declared themselves in all but five of the constituencies. Campaigning was Marg's 'own idea' VICTORIA (CP) Margaret Trudeau said Sunday the Liberal party will have to work harder to gain more support in the West in the July 8 federal election. The prime minister's wife also told party workers here that her husband had nothing to do with her becoming involved in the campaign it was her own idea. Mrs. Trudeau said she's enjoying this campaign more than the one in 1972 because it's more of what she called a "grass-roots affair." enabling her to meet more voters.

DUBLIN (AP) A fugitive leader of the Irish Republican Army gave the funeral oration at the grave of hunger striker Michael Gaughan, but police made no attempt to arrest him before thousands of mourners. A 17-man IRA guard of honor clad in black and mourners escorted the body of Michael Gaughan from Dublin Sunday to the grave in Ballina, his hometown in County Mayo. David O'Connell, a top chieftain of the Provisional wing of the outlawed IRA. defied about 100 uniformed and plainclothes police to deliver the graveside eulogy. Wanted by authorities in both the Irish republic and Northern Ireland. O'Connell was surrounded by a guard of IRA men in black berets. But the police made no attempt to arrest him or to stop the IRA guard of honor who fired a volley of pistol shots over the coffin, and O'Connell disappeared in the crowd of about 7.000 persons. Gaughan, 24. died Monday after a 64-day fast in a prison on the Isle of Wight.

(CP) Housing Minister Lome Nicolson announced Saturday that the British Columbia government plans to buy Notre Dame University of Nelson. Mr. Nicolson (NDP Nelson-Creston) told a group of about 250 persons demonstrating at the university that negotiations will begin immediately for the public works department to buy the university. He said Education Minister Eileen Dailly would make an announcement early this week about Notre Dame. Eugene Bodard. deputy chairman of the university's board of governors, said the board decided at a meeting earlier Saturday to negotiate with the government. Both Mr. Nicolson and Mr. Bodard said negotiations will be on the understanding that the facility will continue to be used for post-secondary studies in the Kootenay. More than a week ago. Mrs. Dailly said the government would decide the university's future by Jan 1. 1975. She said Notre Dame would receive financial support for the next year to ensure continuation of existing programs, but said there would be no new funds for extension of programs. Her announcement prompted angry reaction from the area, including Saturday's demonstration, but Mr. Nicolson said this was not a factor in the government's decision to take over the university. He said this was decided several months ago. A royal commission headed by Ian McTaggart-Cowan of the Universitv of B.C. recommended in February that a Kootenay Institute for post-secondary studies be established. The institute would include a four-year liberal arts college here to replace Notre Dame, with two-year technical and vocational colleges here and in nearby Castlegar to replace Selkirk Regional College. Nixon rejects committee request WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon refused again today to honor any more House of Representatives impeachment inquiry subpoenas, writing to House judiciary committee chairman Peter Rodino that he will do nothing which will "tender the executive branch henceforth and forevermore subservient to the legislative branch." Nixon's six-page letter to Rodino is in response to the judiciary committee's subpoena for tapes of 45 conversations related to the Watergate political espionage scandal. The letter was released by the White House. The committee voted 37 to 1 on May 29 to subpoena the tapes, even though Nixon had already refused to comply with an earlier subpoena from the committee and had said he would reject any further sub- poenas for material related to Watergate. Nixon declared again today that "the voluminous body of materials that the committee already has does give the full story of Watergate insofar as it relates to presidential knowledge and presidential decisions." and Dolours Price, quit their fast Saturday. Early Sunday, their kidnap- pers freed the Earl and Count- ess of Donoughmore in a Dublin park. The 67-year-old countess said they were told they were being let go "because the hunger strikers stopped striking." Lord Donoughmore, 71, told reporters he could not positively identify his captors, "but I imagine they were members of the IRA." There had been speculation that the kidnappers took the couple as hostages for the hun- ger strikers. The two were bruised and shaken but otherwise in good health. Lord Donoughmore's coat was bloodstained, and he had a black eye and a cut on the back of his head. But he said that after the initial scuffle when they were seized outside their country mansion they were treated well. The earl, a Protestant, said his captors told him they kid- napped him because he had once been a member of British Parliament. Policeman loses eye in fracas WEST VANCOUVER, (CP) A West Vancouver policeman lost an eye early Sunday during a disturbance involving about 300 people outside a house party which later ended with 16 persons in jail. Constable Ron Denny, 35, underwent surgery Sunday to remove the eye, injured by a rock thrown during the fracas outside a house. Six North Vancouver RCMP officers were later called in and police put on riot gear to quell a mob of about 40 who charged the police station hoping to free those arrested earlier at the party. The clash at the station between police and the crowd spilled out onto the street where more people were arrested before the mob finally broke up. Police were first called about 1 a.m. after the occupant of the house reported he had been stabbed in the arm with a knife during a fight with party crasher. A police spokesman said Constable Denny was hit as patrol cars arrived to flying rocks and bottles thrown from a crowd gathered outside the house After the party died down, those arrested were taken to the police station and charged, mainly with creating a disturbance. A short time later, the spokesman said, friends of those arrested came into the station's lobby apparently trying to free the party goers held in jail.
