By ANDY ROY The CANADIAN PRESS New Democratic Party Leader David Lewis took a swing at Liberal pension and transport promises Friday, accusing the Liberals of "clutching at every cheap political gimmick" to get the votes of old-age pensioners. Referring to Prime Minister Trudeau's promise earlier this week to provide pension benefits to some under-65 spouses of old-age pensioners. Mr. Lewis told about 300 followers in Sault Ste Marie. Ont., the Liberals refused to raise pension benefits in the May 8 budget. He said the Liberals now are trying to win support at the last minute by making these pension promises But only widespread pension reform and increased benefits can provide pensioners with the decent life they seek The New Democrats have promised an old age pension of a month, up from the current and higher guaranteed-income supple- ment payments Mr Lewis said this has been party policy since the party convention last year Of the transport pledge, Mr Lewis said the prime minister's announcement of a new Crown corporation to take over rail passenger ser- vice from the Canadian National and Canadian Pacific railways would be good news for the railways. These are money-losing operations which the railways would be glad to get rid of, he said.

Mr. Stantield said some Lib- erals have described his party as being against Quebec. "That's a lie. But I'll tell you straight that we recognize it's not healthy that we don't have a stronger Quebec representation in our caucus Now is the time for Quebe- cers to break their traditional allegiance with both the Liberals and Social Credit parties. Mr. Stanfield said Meanwhile. Prime Minister Trudeau took his campaign to Newfoundland Friday. At Deer Lake from Trois Rivieres.

Companies want more say in NEB ethylene hearing Dief calls PM 6flower child9 By HOWARD COLLINS OTTAWA (CP) Two ma- jor companies protested Fri- day the use of an ex-parte hearing by the National Energy Board to consider an application from Dow Chemical Canada Ltd. for a licence to export ethylene. Both Imperial Oil Ltd. and Alberta Gas Trunk Line Ltd. called on the board to cancel the ex-parte hearing schedul- ed to start Tuesday and hold fullscale. public hearings.

Under the ex-parte hearing, arguments would be heard only from Dow witnesses and mtervenors would have to sub- mit written briefs to the board. Board secretary R.A. Stead said much of the information needed to consider the Dow application had been received during hearings on an applica- tion from Dome Petroleum Ltd. to build an ethane and ethylene pipeline to southern Ontario, connecting lines to the United States However, Alberta Gas said in its brief that the export of ethylene. a petroleum derivative used in the manufacture of plastics, arose incidentally in the Dome applications. It said it would apply at the start of the proceedings Tues- day for an adjournment so that the board's decision to hold exparte hearings could be reviewed.
