Making his first sortie from Ottawa since calling the July 8 general Trudeau spent some six hours on the rain-soaked Duke campus. He urged the graduates to press the world's developed countries to adopt a new ethic of sharing and responsibility. He also chatted over tea and punch with members of the university's Canadian-studies program. Trudeau hewed to the proto- col that a visiting politician avoid controversy about both his own and the host country's politics. He mentioned the ne- cessity for exemplary behavior by persons in positions of but mentioned no names. Faced with a standing ovation from the member commencement audience and lavish praise from Duke President Terry Trudeau expressed smiling regrets that because of equal-time restraints during the afraid they won't be able to use as much of that on TV as I might have It was his first speech in the United States since a visit to Washington five years and the first U.S. commencement speech by a Canadian prime minister since Lester bending protocol at Temple University in urged Americans in 1965 to stop bombing North Vietnam.

In a statement in the House of Wilson said the intention is by and indiscriminate to foment sectarian hatreds in the Belfast area.

FIRST CENSUS There were white resi- dents in Canada when the first census was taken in 1666. Ont. David Lewis dusted off some slightly-used New Democratic Party economic policies Mon- as he continued a three- centre preview of his election campaign. Mr. Lewis told an NDP nominating meeting that while his official campaign doesn't start until he is offering glimpses of the party's policies before starting the official stumping. He told the audience that the government's efforts to control inflation by raising the prime interest rate of the Bank of Canada are of The most recent raising the rate to per highest level in his- nonsense. The prime interest rate is the rate at which the Bank of Canada lends money to the chartered banks. The chartered banks usually charge their best customers about IVz per cent more than the prime rate. Mr. Lewis said the increase in the prime rate is inflationary in itself and will only serve to increase the woes of the average consumer by making credit more expensive than ever. A train with 40 engines and freight cars. A freight car is useless if it isn't going somewhere. And to get it it takes people. People like locomotive engineer Al Fuller. Al typifies the new thinking at CP Rail. Thinking that has given us an almost improve- ment in on-time perfor- mance on certain key trains. We improved this service through better planning and utilization of equipment. We added new pieces of rolling stock last And spent on ties. This kind of commitment is part of the spirit at CP Rail. We believe good freight service is really a question of good people. Whether they're fore- casting buying new or ensuring another on-time arrival. At CP Rail we believe freight is people- like Al Fuller. And we want to keep the spirit that has made us the world's largest investor- owned transportation system. We're committed.

Mr. Lewis said the interest rate increase will work to the benefit of large corporations. He said with billions of dollars in will make money with higher interest rates on their deposits. They usually raised their own credit internally and won't be hurt by the higher commercial interest rates. He also criticized corporate singling out steel com- which recently an- nounced a price for particular attention. PROFITS RISE He asked why the companies were increasing their quoting figures to show that profits of the Steel Company of Canada Ltd. rose by 31 per cent in 1972. Dominion Foundries and Steel Company Ltd. and Algoma Steel Ltd. also showed steep increases in profits last he said. Mr. Lewis called for a two- price system for basic com- modities such as steel. He said that a two-price sys- similar to that which al- lows Canadians to purchase domestic petroleum prices at levels below world would reduce the effects of inflation. Companies should take whatever prices the world market will but don't have to bear Library use high world price he said. Mr. Lewis also renewed the NDP's oft-repeated demand for a national prices review board to monitor prices if halt or roll back unwarranted price jumps. COMBINATED NEEDED He said these com- bined with a cut in personal in- come an excess profits tax and lower interest rates will help buffer the impact of inflation on Canadians. He also repeated his con- demnations of the economic policies of the Liberals and Conservatives. He said Prime Minister Trudeau's insistence that in- flation is worldwide and can't be controlled domestically is only partly true. Government can help alleviate some in- flation.

Government sources ex- plained Monday that Alberta last week told Ottawa in a reaction to the implications of the impending cabinet decision on the Dow-Dome proposal that there is room for two world-scale ethylene plants by but not necessarily room for three by 1980. If there is not room for three by Alberta wants the first two plants this decade located in the sources added.
