And the inflationary jump at the political level may be even sharper. The official figure is much the firmest because Chief Electoral Officer Jean-Marc Hamel is responsible for its accuracy and he forecasts the increase. Charting political spending is a much more shadowy especially since new elec- tion spending legislation will not be in force for this vote. Perhaps the leading non- political authority is Prof. K. 2. Paltiel of Carleton University here who estimates the 1968 election cost parties and candidates million and that in 1972 about million. don't think anybody knows the whole truth about what it not even the political parties he has said of his 1972 estimate. this is an informed A Commons committee studying election expenses estimated in 1971 that the 1965 general election cost parties and candidates million. Prof. Paltiel wrote a book called Political Party Financing in Canada on that election. Mr. Hamel spent million in 1965 and million in 1968 and attributes the increase to million in 1972 in part to the fact that 2.2 million more voters joined the many of them 18- year-olds eligible for the first time. The main reason for in- creased cost of working the electoral machinery this time are general increases in prices. Electoral officers million election bill in prospect poll clerks and enumerators have been granted a pay increase to about a compared with last time. With about enumerators earning an average of the enumeration cost alone is estimated at million.

It was million in the 1972 elec- tion. Costs other than salaries are also up. Mr. Hamel says printing will come to about million compared with million and that the addition of printing the bal- lots means another. In the political the rules are unchanged despite passage last January of legislation letting the government ap- ply much tougher controls to who spends how much. Figures attributed to senior party officials say that the Liberals spent million in 1972. The Progressive Con- servatives spent a reported million and the NDP about Although no Social Credit audit was unofficial estimates put their campaign tab at between and The new legislation was to operate starting July 15 or earlier if Mr. Hamel gave the green he didn't on grounds that considerable adminis- trative work is needed to get the spending- supervision system working. The controls will limit candidates to spending for each of the first registered voters in their 50 cents for each of the next and 25 cents for each one over Parties will be limited to 30 cents for each voter in ridings where the party has a candidate. In terms of the 1972 voters this would mean that in the riding with the largest voting population York- Scarborough held by Revenue Minister Robert which had eligible would be allowed to spend a total of each. Their parties would be able to spend each. Mr. Stanbury's declared costs were in the 1972 his Conservative opponent Winnett Boyd spent and New Democrat Dave Warner In the riding with the smallest population held by Conservative Erik will be limited to the total number of eli- gible voters.

The association also recommended the creation of an Indian police force with training and funding equivalent to the RCMP under federal legislation. reserves are the only communities in this province which are denied the right of police protection services which is a right which was guaranteed by our the association said in a brief. Mr. Cardinal attacked what he called the overpresence of the RCMP in rural courts and said Indians should be named as judges in Indian regions. In areas where natives are not in the Indians should Soviet farm workers race against time MOSCOW The government newspaper Izvestia reported Wednesday that spring seeding is far behind delayed by unfavorable weather in the Soviet Union. The newspaper says millions of farm workers were working day and night in a race against time. On- May the spring acreage sown was 20 million hectares behind which was a record year in Soviet agriculture. A hectare is 2 47 acres. The 63.3 million hectares seeded by Monday was even behind the total on that date in a year of crop disaster. The weather problem this year was not enough winter rain in April which delayed seeding and sudden warmth in May. MANY RENDITIONS The songs St. Louis Blues by W. C.
