could have done without this damn election The opinion of the residents of Beauce in the early June days of the campaign has been much the same as that in the neighboring constituencies of Lotbimere Frontenac and Bellechasse The picturesque mainly-rural, partly-urban area southeast of Quebec City- is regarded by some as a microcism of the province In the rural areas, possibly the one common complaint has oeen about the federal government s agricultural policies In urban areas the problems vary and several citizens said their complaints mostly are about matters under provincial jurisdiction The Liberals are striving to retain Beauce and Frontenac, the Social Credit Lotbimere and Bellechasse BEAUCE Campaigning for re-election in Beauce is Liberal Yves Ca- ron who took the seat from So- cial Credit in 1972 by 484 votes The campaign trail stretches from this city 30 miles east of Quebec to the Maine border 50 miles away Snaking through the area is the Chaudiere River which goes on a rampage almost every spring and causes thousands of dollars damage along its banks Among those familiar with the river's vagaries is Paul- Andre Busque. the Progressive Conservative candidate, who ran third in 1972 There is little unemployment in the constituency which has small industries in Beauceville St Georges, St Joseph and Ste Mane Some voters view the mam election issues as the govern- ment's agricultural policies and inflation But they also want the parties to take a stand on rumored action by the United States government to prohibit Quebecers from working in New England The ban would be aimed at reducing unemployment among forestry and con- struction workers, particularly in Maine Many from Beauce cross the border to work, attracted by higher salaries, and they fear what the ban would do to their livelihood FRONTINAC In Frontenac constituency, criss-crossed by the Appala- chian Mountains, the problems are different Its population of is almost evenly divided between urban and rural areas The main city of Thetford Mines, with a population of is in a rich asbestos belt where salaries are good and employment high Leopold Cornveau, 48, a Thetford Mines electrician and father of two children, is hoping to retain the seat for the Liberals He was re- elected in 1972 with a majority of 64 votes The people here want the Quebec government to force the companies to do processing and manufacturing in the area LOTBINIERE The 70.000 people in Lotbi- mere constituency depend on farming, furniture manufac- turing and two clothing facto- ries for

Tour rained out Even the tours are better organized now There are no situations such as occurred in 1958 when Mr Pearson toured St John's, Nfld in an open convertible while being drenched with rain Soon there was no one on the streets, and Mr Pearson turned to Joseph Smallwood. then Newfoundland's premier, and suggested the cavalcade be cancelled "Keep waving, Mike." replied the peppery premier "They'll be watching from behind the curtain." Even the heckling doesn't seem as good as it used to placards have replaced the sharp give-and- take of the old days Former New Democratic Party leader T C Douglas was one of the masters of handling hecklers Once in Crystal Lake, Sask., a rather large listener sized up the pint-sized leader and announced to the audience that "I could swallow him." "If he did." shot back Mr Douglas, "he'd have more brains in his stomach than he has in his head mated 5 billion a year Mr Lewis started another western swing Thursday and in Winnipeg criticized the Lib- eral government's defence ohcy On Friday he visited North Battleford, Sask and other points, strongly criticizing the Trudeau government's agri- cultural policies Social Credit Leader Real Caouette started a western swing in Vancouver Monday by predicting that his party will have the effective bal- ance of power in the next Commons, rather than the New Democrats During the week he made one stop in each province, saying Social Credit will have a full slate of candidates in the West and Social Creditors should not vote Conservative just to defeat the Liberals Moderate elected WATERLOO, Ont (CP) Rev Albm Stanfel, 45, of Kitchener, today was re- elected to a second four-year term as Ontario district president of the Lutheran Church, Missouri synod He defeated Rev Thomas Ristine, 46, of London, Ont Rev Lester G Prusha, 36, of Simcoe, Rev Mervm Huras, 39. of West Lome and Rev Howard Kuhl, 44, of Ottawa on the first ballot Vote tabulations were not revealed Mr Stanfel promised those who didn't vote for him to make "every effort to serve you in keeping with the stand of the church and my own integrity "The task is becoming more difficult, given the turmoil our church is going through His re-election was regarded by many of the 126 delegates as a test of the synod's moderate element The moderates were consid- ered to have scored a victory Friday when it was announced motions requiring candidates for district president to state their positions on the synod's theology and constitution were defeated Later, convention officials announced one of the motions had passed by a two-vote margin The motion asked candidates to express their views on outstanding issues of district and synod The motion that was defeated asked candidates to state if they could support a controversial statement of scriptural and confessional principles Dr Jacob Preus of St Louis Mo synod president, drew up the statement which was passed at the 1973 synod m New Orleans It resulted in a number of faculty and students leaving the church's Concordia Seminary in St Louis and establishing a breakaway seminary at St Louis University NOTICE PUBLIC HEARING Pubic Boon) THE PUBLIC UTILITIES BOARD FOR THE PROVINCE OF ALBERTA IN THE MATTER OF "The Public Utilities Board Act" being Chapter 301 of the Revised Statutes of Alberta, 1970 AND IN THE MATTER OF "The Gas Utilities Act" being Chapter 158 of the Revised Statutes of Alberta, 1970 AND IN THE MATTER OF rates for gas supplied and service rendered to be charged by CANADIAN PROPANE GAS AND OIL LTD.
