Replying to a string of que.s- mainly by New Democrat llPs. Mr. Trudeau rejected the idea of .1 Canadian statement on the war He said Canada still is trying lo ascertain I ho latest facts anil suggested Hie best hopes for a reduction in the lighiing lie in Hie planned trip to Moscow in fv.'o weeks by President Nixon. David Lewis, NDP leader, was unsuccessful in seeking an emergency debate on what he called the "dangercus escala- tion ordered by the presi dent" of the U.S. He said it 'icscs "a serious threat to world peace." Mr. Nixon Monday night dis- dosed he has ordered the min- ;iig of North Vietnamese har- bors. iSpcrl'er Lucicn Lamoureux ruled against an emergency du- saying that the fighting boon going on for years and Jiat the House held such a de- bate on Llie "widening war" in 1070. A tbbate might be more In er on. when more tacts arc known, lie .sr.id, suggesting :i migiit by set aside by all- parly agrceiiient. Mr Ti-udcau, questioned liy Mr. Lewis, said it is unfair lo talk of escalation only by one side when the North Vietnamese had "sent 12 divisions" of fight- ing men into llic Soulli In recent weeks. The prime minister said Can- ada's representatives in Wash- inglon were informal of llie cnr.lenl of the Nixon speech "very slightly prior" '.o the TV delivery. Mr. Lewis said he gathered from the reply thai Ihe lalest developments in Vietnam do not distress the government and there will be no Canadian pro- lesl of HID U.S. aclion. Mr. Lewis, heckled by Liberal back-benchers as he tried to say Mr. Tniflesii v.-as bis answers inlo a debate, snapped at (be Liberal MPs: "Just hold your horses if you have brains enough lo do it." ASKS FOR STATEMENT He asked whether Ihere v.ill be a statement soon by the gov- ernmenl on Ihe Vielnam situa- tion before it put the world into "world war or on the brink of world war.'1 Mr. Trudeau said the Canu- I dian government is on Ihe (record as onnosing the "horrors 1 of this war" and in favor of a negotiated selllc'iner.1 r a t h e r Ihan one by force of arms. Maitial As.snlin vobO asked whether there will be representations lo Russia, source of many arms used by the North Vietnamese. Mr. Trudean said .Mr. Nixon can discuss Llie situation during his visit to Russia. Canada, as a friend of Russia. China and the U.S., was ready lo offer advice or services it called upon by any of tlic major parties.

"I'm having a ball and T like it." says the 24-year-old from the borough of Scarbor- ough. "It's got nothing to do wiin women's it's a livirg so fai1 as I'm concerned.''

Although she's never met another woman trailer-tractor driver, she's been told there is another in the Toronto area. And being a woman in the bii.shicss has its advantages, she says.
