The political fortunes of the 44-year-old finance minister may rise or fall on the strength of the budget. The same applies to the minority Liberal government. Within the context of political the economic advisers in Mr. Turner's department will have weighed in with arguments for different eco- nomic theories and how best to apply those theories. Tax relief is a politically at- tractive possibility but econo- mists say a balanced budget is called for and that may not make tax cuts possible. The rutis tnat any general tax cuts would be and inflation is sure to be a key issue if there is a general election this summer. If there are tax cuts for those at lower income there will be strong advice from economists to recover lost revenue from other tax sources. Protecting people on fixed incomes from the effects of inflation is a sensitive issue. Old age pensions now are adjusted to reflect changes in the consumer price process is called further moves in this direction are possible. Included in recent New Democratic Party list of de- mands as a basis for continued support of the government are measures to trim corporation profits. Prize catch Ray Rowan of Toronto proudly displays his 13 pound catch which turned to be an Atlantic salmon. Rowan caught the salmon while fishing in the Saugeen River which runs into Lake Huron at Ontario. Experts at the Royal Ontario Museum identified the catch and claim that thousands of Atlantic salmon fry were planted m Lake Huron by the State of Michigan.

The betting was heavy at week's end that an election was inevitable and the country would be going to the polls as early as July 8 for the 30th fed- eral vote since Confederation 99.99 per cent said one spokesman for the New Democratic Party don't see any way that Turner can bring in a budget we would Even Liberal MPs and aides were openly pessimistic about staving off defeat when the first non-confidence budget vote is likely Wednesday or Thursday. One said it would take a miracle to reverse the pro- election mood in the where the Liberals are badly outnumbered. Standing in 264-seat House is Liberal Progressive Conservative New Democrat Social- Crefit Independent one and vacant two. A more cautious assessment came Friday from a Con- servative spokesman. want an and all my instincts yes. But why was Allan MacEachen House smiling he asked come to the brink before. Maybe the government still has an ace up its To keep the government Mr. Turner must appease either the Conservatives or New Democrats. Each party com- mands enough votes to keep Liberals from falling. Both seem likely to move nonconfidence .motions following the unless its contents are spectacular. If they combine on any non- confidence the government would be defeated and a July election would be all but certain. NDP Leader David Lewis has made a long nine-point list of demands as the price of continued NDP support for the government.
