In a tight vote of 72 to 61, del- egates to the meeting here Thursday decided in favor of continuing the organization as it is rather than integrating it at the national level with the main party body, the Liberal Federa- tion "of Canada. The vote followed a panel dis- cussion on the pros and cons of the proposed integration. Earlier Senator Richard Stan- bury, president of the Liberal Federation of Canada, told the women he believes integration is desirable at all party levels. But he stressed that even if the national women's associa- tion would have to decide for it- self whether it would gain from integration at its particular level. "Just as some men have found it possible to work only in their spare time for the party while others find it possible to be candidates and executive of- ficers, so I trust women will choose the part they prefer to play and follow their he said.

Dr. Keith Yonge, head of fte psychiatry department at the University of Alberta, told the commission its interium report "seems oblivious to the con- nection between the psychedel- ic experience and the unprece- dented increase in the sense of isolation of youth from soci- ety." Commission Chairman Ger- ald Le Dain said1 after the hearings the public appears to have gained a clearer under- standing of drug problems since the interium report was released. He attributed this to in- creased public discussion about drug problems. He also said the commission is "receiving indications that there was a significant change in the pattern of drug abuse."
