LEGHORN, Italy (APi An RAF transport plane crashed into the Ligurian Sea off north- west Italy early today with 46 Italian paratroops and five Brit- ish crew m e m b e r s aboard.

Seat No. 25 for NDP campaigner Assiniboe WEYBURN, Sask. (CP) Bill Knight, who got his feet wet in politics si 13 and will be the youngest member in Parliament at 2-1, Monday scored a solid victory for the New Democratic Parly in the federal byclcction in Assiniboia. Mr. Knight, in capturing un.ri per cent of the popular vole, de- feated Iv.-o veteran politicians to wrest the seat from the Liberal government of Prime Minister Trudeau. Complete results gave the Weyburn, Sask., high school teacher votes compared with for Conservative can- didate Laurence Watson and for Liberal Jim Hooker. The victory gives the NDP its 2.5th seat in the Commons and its seventh .VIP from Saskatche- wan. It also is the party's fifth win in the 11 federal byeledions held since the 19Sil general elec- tion. Liberals have v.on four and the Conservatives (wo. Three of the five XDP wins were gains from Liberals and one of the four Liberal wins was a gain from Creriitists. All Lib- eral wins were in Quebec. Standing in the Commons now is Liberals 150, Conservatives 71, NDP 2.5, Social Credit 13. in- dependent tu'o, independent Lib- eral one and vacant two. The result left Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Ca- nadian wheat board, as the only Liberal from Saskatchewan in the Commons There were eligible vot- ers in the Assiniboia riding which spreads over almost square miles of hilly farm and ranohland 180 miles" along the United States border and north for 80 miles. Consumer goes up anoter notch OTTAWA prices continued their fall season de- cline last month, but higher dentists fees, home insurance, and some Iiigher clothing prices pushed the consumer price index up a notch. Statistics Can- ada reported today. The October Index stood at 134.9 compared with 134.7 in September, but still a tenth of a point below its August high of 135. Tile index, based on 1.961 prices equalling 100, meant that it cost last stead of in buy what bought in 1061 for a wide range or consumer goods Food prices on average de- clined so that the 1961 bag of fill worth of groceries cost last month, instead of S13.37 as it did in September. That food bill was in August. The over-all increase of about one-tenth of one per cent in con- sumer prices last month wasn't sufficient to make any apprecia- ble change in the purchasing power of the dollar, the statis- tics bureau said. It still reported Ihe consumer dollar had a purchasing power of 74 cents last month, in terms of tire 1961 dollar, unchanged from September. Statistics Canada also re- ported that while food prices de- clined and the prices of other commodities rose, there was, in balance, a slight reduction in commodity prices as a whole. The cost of services, which make up about 30 per cent of the total index, continued to rise. The statistics bureau said the Septeinber-to-October increase in the over-all index this year duplicated Ihe amount, of in- crease in same month year. In percentage terms, the ir.dcrc last month was 3.5 per cent higher than a year ago. Tile drop in food prices was seasonal, the bureau said. The fail season's harvest of fresh fruits and vegetables usually pushes food prices down at this time of year. Focd prices ac- count for more than one-quarter of the total index. 'liic decisive Honker u'as con.sick.-rc'i to demonstration fcde: agriculture policir-. Mii'jh of blame for Ihe upsr-; of the former Saskatchewan Lib- eral government las'. June the NDP also was placed on those policies. The controversial prairie grains income- stabilization bill became the focal point of dis- content throughout the riding. Along with that was smoulder- ing resentment of the 1970 Low For Tomorrow pro- gram. Unpopular proposals by Fi- nance Minister Edgar Benson to institute a capital gains tax and to increase taxes against co-op- eratives sko cut deeply into Liberal support. Assiniboia is extremely co-operative oriented and contains two of the largest rural credit unions in the world, INTERPRETS RESULT Speaking of his victory Mon- day night, Mr. Knight said: "The results demand in no un- certain terms that the govern- ment bring in a grains income stabilization plan ss amended. Furthermore, they have re- jected increased taxation of co- operatives." Premier Allan Blakeney's re- action was much the same. "The result is a clear and devastating repudiation of the farm policies of Trudeau and he "Let's hope Dial Ottawa fi- nally has [lie farmers do not want LIFT, they don't want a poverty stabiliza- tion bill and they don't want the task force on agriculture.'' Mr. Knight, a social studies and economics teacher at Wcy- burn collegiate, took the lead after the first three polls out of a total of 214 had been heard from and never relinquished it. "The most important aspect of tile outcome is that it is not just a victory for the NDP: it is a victory for the farmers of the West.'' said Mr. Knight, who got into politics at 15 when he he- came a member of the Souris- Estevan CCF executive and chairman of the executive pol- icy committee.
