By STEWART MacLEOD OTTAWA There are j indications that when next general election cam- paign begins Prime Minister shorn of will mount the nation's podiums with traditional hit- thenvin-tbe-guto speeches and bring back the old days of Canadian politics. 'Most Liberals seem to agree there'll be no repeats of 1968 when the prime minister was swept across the country on the waves of just or 1972 when he tried to have a quiet dialogue with the voters under banners reading land is says one veteran prime minister has to come out with an evangelical determination to win and he knows Some members are openly enthusiastic about the way Mr. Trudeau appears to be taking this approach in caucus ripping into opposi- tion arguments and presenting his own case with a tough articulation. As one Liberal put now is pounding his fist where he used to shrug his The MPs can point to several other indicaton to show that Mr. Trudeau is reverting to a more traditional approach as be looks ahead toward his next crucial campaign. They among other that he relies almost totally on MPs to learn about viewpoints in various parts of the country. The regional desks he estab- lished within his office to keep taking the pulse of the various parts of the country are effec- tively eliminated for that pur- pose. While the prime minister is still surrounded by a heavy battery of many of like New Democratic conven- tion tend to take'a serious view of their re- his political ad- vice is coming from more traditional sources. He has frequent conver- sations with Senator Keith the party's national campaign who was never able to guide Lester Pearson to a majority but now is gung- ho for another try. And the prime minister is said to be spending more time with politicians and organizers who have had actual experiences in the political trenches. TACTICS CHANGED One veteran MP says there are also indications that Mr. Trudeau now is anxious to nuke full use of the party es- tablishment instead of ruffling its feathers as be did during his first few years in office. One example in his recent Senate well-established Liberate. In earlier the prime minister invariably bucked party recommen- some of them high- to include well- known figures from other par- or individuals who never had the'slightest interest in partisan politics. 1 party sources say it is amazing how many people write to the prime minister and gallantly offer to serve their couritry in the Senate. While many Liberal MPs say they have a clear idea of how the prime minister will handle the next campaign on the speaking actual plans are not well advanced and no one knows when the campaign will be. All party leaders likely will take to their chartered air- craft although several highly placed Liberals wonder aloud whether Mr. Trudeau should not return to the Diefenbaker-style whistle- stopping with a special train. It will be discussed before the campaign begins. This was also thought about before the 1972 but fears were expressed among party organizers that it would create a behind-the- times image like that attributed to Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield when he flew in an piston- driven plane in the 1961 elec- tion. The same arguments likely wilj arise when planning begins for the next say officials. And they add the ad- ditional fear that some rural railway stations in the West would not be swamped with the crowds that produce good press coverage. Legal casino makes money DAWSON Y.T. Canada's only legal gambl- ing casino Diamond Tooth Gertie's in this former gold rush capital has reported a profit of on its operations this year. Officials of the Klondike Visitors which operates the gambling said Diamond Tooth Gertie's grossed during the three-month tourist season here with expenses of Crisis still ahead in Britain's plan for Ulster peace By COLIN FROST LONDON Britain's ilan for peace in Northern Ireland has achieved some but crisis is ahead. Crucial decisions are due in the next three weeks on a new form of government for the Drovince. More than 900 per- sons have died there in four years of guerrilla war set off by .the feud between Roman Catholic nationalists and British thinking Protestants. The new government is intended to share power between Catholic and Protes- tant and end the' -long standing CatholW complaint of in almost every field of life. Politicians go along with the British blueprint have made progress toward forming a power sharing executive. on the hard line Protestant insist they will wreck it by constitutional methods. The Catholic based Irish Republican Army wants no part of any settlement that does not give it power in an all Ireland republic. And the ex- treme Protestant fringe equally reject any settlement that gives Catholic nationalists a say in running their lives. CITY A WRECK the province's second is a wreck. the keeps a semblance of normality and a surprising economic vitality despite repeated bombings. But the heart has been torn out of dozens of smaller towns. Britain's attempt to douse the violence reached its peak in with the dis- solution of the Protestant run provincial parliament and cabinet. William a 53 year old farmer and' Conservative took over all power in the province as Britain's administrator. Since then new elections have produced a provincial assembly of 78 members from which Whitelaw is trying to form a power sharing ex- ecutive. He has had one major success. The remaining pro- British led by former premier Brian have not merely talked with the Catholic bas- ed Social Democratic and Labor party. They have work- ed out with them an agreed social and economic policy and the broad outlines of a new administration. That tb-se parties should even talk together would have been unthinkable two years ago. Whether they can work together in government remains in doubt. The Social Democrats are basically com- mitted to a united Ireland. The Protestant majority in the North mainly wants to stay apart. Paddy the Social Democrat's chief warn- ed Friday that to talk of quick agreement on power sharing would be misleading. Wide areas of difference despite the agreement on social and economic aims. One basic difference is over the Council of -Britain has promised to spon- sor once the executive is This first envisaged when Ireland was partitioned half a century would stimulate cross border co operation in such matters as tourism and perhaps security. The Social like the government in want the council to be formed at once without waiting for agreement on a northern ex- ecutive.
