Answering questions touching on the constitutional aspects of the present political situation, he said lhat if the Trudeau government fell within a m alter of a few montlis, "I would expect lo be called upon to form a government."

At the same lime Mr. Stanfield said, "I'm not Irou-bled by the prospects of an election if Mr. Trudeau wants one."

The Shenyang acrobatic troupe of Manchuria, a company of 55 gymnasts, dancers, musicians, jugglers and magicians, will arrive in this country on 16 following a month-long tour of Canada and will perform, starting Dec. 18, in four American cities Chicago, Indianapolis, New York and Washington. The tour by the Chinese troupe marks another stage in the gradual thaw in show between this country and the People's Republic of Cliina that began after President Nixon's historic visit last year lo the Chinese mainland. Since then the two countries have exchanged visits between their table tennis teams and China has eased restrictions on visits to the mainland by journalists, students, business men and others. The Chinese government also permitted a filmed presentation of the Pelting ballet's production of "Red Delachmenl of Women" lo be shown on American television and Ihe filming by a television crew, headed by Lucy Jarvis of t h e National Broadcasting Company, of many aspects of Chinese life. But this is the first time that a live arts group has been al-lowedlo come here. Considering Ihe importance the Communist government has always given to cultural exchanges, the m o v e is considered of major significance by the American promoters of the visit.
