(AP) Nine fires erupted here today, and fire officials said at least eight of them were the work of arsonists. The most serious blaze destroyed a three-storey apartment house, leaving dozens homeless. Spokesman said arson was the likely cause of a three- alarm fire at the Villa Nova apartments, a brick building located on the western edge of the city's downtown area. Eleven fire trucks were called to that blaze, and two firemen were injured in the Insurgents attack in Cambodia fight against it. However, spokesmen said all of the 60 residents were evacuated safely. Eight hours after it began, the apartment blaze continued to send smoke from the structure hundreds of feet into the air. Fire officials said the second major blaze was a two- alarm fire that destroyed North Side Building Supply. Arson was listed as the cause there. The apartment fire was reported as city units were at an arson fire at Automotive Warehouse Distributors. Inc.. said Capt. Paul R. Nolan, an arson investigator. Damage there was contained to a loading dock and door. Moments later, firemen were sent to the Gung Ho Restaurant, where a set blaze damaged a doorway and adjoining trash containers. Margaret Trudeau and husband during campaign stop. Campaigning was her idea Margaret more than PM's shadow PHNOM PENH (AP) In- surgent gunners fired three rockets into the area around the Cambodian presidential palace Saturday evening and opened fire on a 20-vesseI convoy seven miles from Phnom Penh in their most damaging attack in more than a year. FRAME STYLES From AROUND-THE- WORLD OTTAWA Margaret Trudeau who has plunged into active political campaigning in this election chatted to reporters recently on the back lawn of the official residence at 24 Sussex Drive and left the impression that while she is a neophyte in the business she is learning rapidly. The occasion was a reception for 20 Liberal candidates who are under 30 years of age. The idea, dreamed up by the national organizers was to put em- phasis on the fact that the Lib- eral party remains a party of youth. Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his young wife put in an appearance to chat on the terrace overlooking the Ottawa River. For most of the dozen reporters and photographers at the reception it was their first invitation to 24 Sussex since Mr. Trudeau took office as prime minister. The young Liberal candidates were already in the residence talking to the- prime minister and Mrs. Trudeau. The press were to gather on the lawn at the rear and sip liquid rrefreshments while they waited. Finally the young Liberal candidates emerged from the official residence, beaming and smiling. They had been charmed by their leader and his pretty wife. She appeared surrounded by a group that-included one young lady who was reminiscing about when she "dropped out" of society. She was now a candidate and had "dropped back in." Margaret Trudeau and the young lady exchanged anec- dotes. Simon Fraser University which Mrs. Trudeau attended was a centre of hard-nosed campus confrontation where she became a thoughtful radical. In an exclusive interview with Toronto Star reporter Dan Turner a year ago she de- scribed her first few years at the university as an "exciting time." But by her final year she found the group militancy of radical left-wing politics stifling and her personality was dominated by the 'Protestant Ethic" of hard, practical work, which had her studying political science and sociology, he wrote. "While I was involved in decrying the system I still felt that I was living in the past, that I was still being con- ditioned." "I started looking at the world and myself differently through English Literature, through William Blake, whom I found the strongest influence on my rnind of anyone I studied at university because he looked at things in such a totally revolutionary way he quoted her as recalling. After University the 20- yearold Margaret was to spend seven months in Morocco. But before that period of "dropping out" there was a fateful trip to Tahiti with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. James Sinclair of g Vancouver, where she first a met her future husband. Mr. Sinclair was a minister of fisheries in the Liberal cabinet of Prime Minister J Louis St. Laurent. l Exchanging experiences of j "dropping out" of society, with the youthful candidates, f Margaret was asked when she "dropped back in" and smiling said she supposed it was when she returned to Ottawa to take a job with the government, before her marriage. That turned the V subject to young women fi working. One male Liberal under a faux pas. He said. "I guess I'll let my wife work for a couple of years." "You'll what! You'll 'lef your wife work." said Mrs. Trudeau expressing surprise and the indignation showing through in her voice as she kept a fixed smile on her face. A reporter volunteered with a grin that the prime minister was "letting" her campaign. She said she was campaign- ing because she wanted to. It was her idea. She felt she had not done enough in the 1972 campaign and had decided that in this election she had to pitch in and help the Liberal government her husband headed get re-elected. "He's not 'letting' me. it's my she made that point emphatically. The reporters and candidates got the message. This is a young lady that makes up her own mind. Her husband does not make up her mind, she does. She compared notes with another candidate about the problem of trying to win some seats in Alberta. She suggested that Alberta had to be considered as a somewhat "different" province because of the large number of Americans and American money invested there. Did she enjoy making public speeches? She said it was hard at first taking part in the campaign but it is coming easier now. She prefers being on her own rather than touring with her husband. On her own she can mingle with the people more and it is not a set itinerary. When she is with her husband every hour and minute is accounted for and there are so many security precautions involved that it becomes complicated, she explained. She can be much more "free and easy" on her own talking and mixing with the voters. Listening to her the reporters could not help but think how naive were some of her comments about electioneering. But she is nobody's fool, she wants to see to it that her husband wins re- election. She obviously enjoys being the wife of the prime minister. HALL YOU NEED FOR A PARTY Plan to enjoy yourself.
