Fred Gruber, a fourth dan judoist from Toronto, not awed by the prime minister, grabbed the lapel of Tru- deau's light grey business suit and floored him, more to the amusement than concern of security officers assigned to protect the Canadian visitor to Japan. Gruber is a teacher of Eng- lish working in Japan. It was all laughter after the friendly skirmish. Trudeau earlier received a certificate and a black belt from Yugen Hamaguchi, dep- uty director of Kodokan, up- grading the prime minister by one grade. He promised Hamaguchi: "After I return to Canada I will practise my judo to de- serve the black belt." He was a brown belter, before this. Trudeau said he has been practising the Japanese art of self-defence for seven years.

Ran Harding raiay West) called campaign ex penses most importan issue" on electoral change. He referred to the Barbeai committee report on electoral expenses and its recommeiida tions which included: concessions on political donations; of expenditure on mass media advertising; of contributions by political parties; of election ex penditures. Publication of donations was important, Mr. Harding said because so many large corpora tions make sizable contribu tions. Andrew Brewin ronto Greenwood) said contro of election expenditures is es sential because of "the over whelming penetration of foreign ownership" in Canadian Indus try. Such penetration created the danger of massive intervention in election campaigns by "peo- ple whose primary allegiance is not to this country." POINTS TO BRITAIN Mr. Brewin said such a sys- tem is in effect in Britain ant the election of a candidate is nullified if he exceeds the allow- able expenses. Robert Thompson Deer) said he hopes the pro- posed committee on election ex- penses would recommend thai financial contributions to politi- cal parties would be tax deduct- ible. Mr. Thompson compared such contributions to charitable dona- tions. What could be more worthy, he asked, than money given as an expression of belief in the democratic process. The bill proposes extending the right to vote to all public servants outside the country and would allow students, fish ermen, prospectors, mariners and the ill to vote through proxy.
