Valued at less than S2 million in 1962, it was worth about S12 million nine vears later. Gl'KLPH. Ont. (CP) In- flation and the rising cost of living are clear-cut issues in th" federal election campaign. Finance Minister John Turner said Wednesday. Speaking to a crowd of 350 at a Guelph hotel. Mr. Turner said this is "the first time there has been such a clearly- defined polarization of issues since 1911." "The issue then was free trade and reciprocity with the I'nited States." Mr. Turner said the Liberals believe the cause of inflation is the imbalance of supply and demand in the Canadian and world economies. In a hard-hitting speech, he cited the simultaneous eco- nomic expansion which oc- curred in Canada and other major industrial countries during 1972 and 1973. This expansion doubled the price of foods and raw mate- rials, he said. Coupled with some disastrous world harvests and "qusi- monopolistic" practices by some oil-producing countries, it brought about soaring inflation. The inflation problem was worldwide and Canada, as the largest trading country in the world, could not be immune to it. Mr. Turner said the Liberals "disagree fundamentally with Mr. Stanfield (the Progressive Conservative leader) who is proposing a freeze on prices and wages of 90 days or less, followed by a formal price and wage control as a means of dealing with inflation. The Liberals do not believe this will work, he said. Control of prices would mean a cut in production, and production must be kept up as an anti-in- flationary method. "We are a trading nation and a price and wage control system would work against our imports." he said. "People won't sell to us." Mr. Turner said control of wages would be disastrous since they are so far below prices now. "The workers won't buy it." he said. "Even some PC candidates don't buy it." He gave examples of Con- servative candidates waffling on the price and wage control system, citing William Neville, Conservative candidate in Mr. Turner s Ottawa-Carleton riding as one who "says Mr. Stanfield has opted' for one issue and then refused to explain it." "1 know of another PC candidate who stands outside a plant gate and tells the steel workers 'Don't worry- boys, it's going to be a flexible freeze.'" "Now I come from the Ot- tawa Valley and people there know what a freeze is." he said. "We've seen a freeze make things crack and break but we've never seen them bend." He said Mr. Stanfield has also said the freeze would be retro- active, so "now we've got a retroactive flexible freeze."

A campaign promise by Mr. Stanfield that he would balance the budget if elected prime minister was "a hypothetical claim if I ever heard one." "We've got a deficit now. Mr. Stanfield has promised to increase old age pensions, abolish salt1; tax and cut taxes for lower income groups. "That's an extra billion and we've still got four weeks left in the campaign." Mr. Stanfield would either have to be frugal, as he claims to be. or prodigal, he said. But lie could not be both and re- main credible. Leger continues good recovery A petition from residents along the old Coaldale Road east of Lethbridge to reduce the speed limit has been turned down by the KCMP. Residents petitioned Lethbridge County council last month to reduce the speed limit because of possible danger to children playing in the area. Council referred the request to the RCMP. The speed limit on the road is 40 miles an hour. A letter from the RCMP brought before this week's meeting of the county- municipal committee stated radar had been used in the area for 26 hours in the last month and only 13 speeders were caught. The average speed of all vehicles clocked was 43 m.p.h. and the average speed of vehicles, excluding violators was 31 m.p.h. the letter stated. "Under the circumstances. I do not think a reduced speed zone is necessary." Sgt. C. A. Poytress said in the letter. the committee also received a report from SHERBROOKE. Que. (CP) The continuing recovery of Gov.-Gen. Jules Leger from a stroke five days ago has led aides and family members to begin discussing how long it will be before he resumes his duties. A spokesman said Wednesday night that questions now centre on the "period of recovery" compared to the concern when Milk River drought may end next iveek MILK RIVER (Staff) Mayor Cam McKay said today that Milk River residents face a 50 per cent shortfall of water until the end of next week. He said in a telephone interview the town is operating at half the normal water supply, and that the "normal" supply can meet only 25 to 40 per cent of Milk River's needs. The mayor said town crews are nearly finished cleaning the first of two sand filters located at the bottom of Milk River's two reservoirs. Crews are removing silt which builds up and plugs the filters. Mayor McKay said he hopes construction of additional reservoirs can start by August. He said additions to the present water system will provide thirsty residents and parched gardens with eight times more water by this time next vear. Garden will be open longer The Japanese Gardens in Lethbridge will extend its opening hours this Saturday. Throughout the rest of the summer, the Nikka Yuko Gardens will be open to visitors from 8 a.m. to p.m. The hours now are 9a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission to the popular attraction in Henderson Park remains at 75 cents for adults and 25 cents for children up to 17 years. Mr. Leger was given the last rites of the Roman Catholic- Church Saturday by his brother. Paul-Emile Cardinal Leger. Aide Roger Nantel said the Governor-General now can eat what he very 'good sign, according to doctors." He spends "a great part of the day seated in a chair rather than in bed." He said Mr. Leger is trying to walk as much as possible and has been out of his room and down a hallway. However, there still is a speech problem which Mr. Nantel said is natural in such cases. He said it still is too early for doctors at the University of Sherbrooke Medical Centre to determine long term effects on the Governor-General.

British trading suffers LONDON (APi Britain suffered a record foreign- trade deficit in May of million iS1.2 the government announced today. The figures suggested the country was heading for its worst economic crisis since the Second Wrorld War. It was the fifth straight month that Britain's trade with the rest of the world ran at about SI billion in the red. Earlier this year the government arranged to borrow billion abroad to cover the expected deficit for the whole year. It was the largest foreign loan in Britain's history but the amount now seems unlikely to cover the expected deficit for the first half of the year alone.

Senators support Kissinger WASHINGTON (AP) Thirty-nine senators are co- sponsoring a Senate resolution praising U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger as a patriotic American "whose integrity and veracity are above reproach." The bipartisan group includes four members of the Senate foreign relations committee, which Kissinger has asked to determine whether he lied last Sep- tember about his role in na- tional security wiretapping. Kissinger said this week that he will resign if attacks on his integrity are not cleared up. "I certainly hope he doesn't resign." said Sen. John Spar- kman (Dem. one of the initial co-signers of a hand- written resolution of confidence in Kissinger presented to the Senate Wednesday by Sen. James Allen iDem. Kissinger told the committee last September that his role in the wiretapping of government officials and reporters was limited to identifying persons who had access to information of the type leaked. Sen. Barry Goldwater (Rep. Ariz, i said Wednesday that The Washington Post committed an "act of treason" in printing secret FBI documents that con- tradict Kissinger's version of the wiretapping matter. Also Wednesday, a former Kissinger aide filed suit against him. Nixon and other officials, accusing them of ordering illegal wiretaps on his telephone. The suit filed by Anthony Lake alleges top members of the administration ordered in- stallation of devices and surveillance equipment" on his telephone after he resigned from the National Security Council staff in 1970.
