Prime Minister Tnideau. him- self a former law teacher, added three more to his council of ministers Monday, bringing the total of lawyers to 15, ex- actly half the cabinet. Since law-making is a major function of the cabinet, the dominance of persons trained in Ihc legal profession may be ap- propriate. There is a similarly heavy representation of lawyers in Ihe Commons itself. Four businessmen, three economists, three journalists, Bangladesh civil >var o babies in 'lousy health' TORONTO (CP) Eight tiny children from Bangla- desh, all victims of the recent eivil war in the Asian coun- try, were met by their adop- tive Canadian parents at To- ronto International Airport Monday night. The children, ranging in age from eight months to six years, are in "lousy a Toronto physician said.

Dr. Wayne McKinley, a pc- diatric resident at the Hospi- tal for Sick Children in To- ronto who visited Bangladesh, said the children "have big bellies, 100 per cent have worms, and they are all in less than optimal health." "The babies we have left behind are to die. Most of the babies I saw there were starving to death." Hellte Fcrrie of Burlington, Ont., who organized the adop- tion program, said she "saw easily abandoned chil- dren in two weeks." Cabinet 'bad boys' dropped MONTREAL (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau's cabinet changes were aimed at remov- ing ministers who were causing the government embar- rassment, Progressive Con- servative leader Robert Stan- field said Monday. "Obviously, ministers who were causing Ihe government embarrassment were stripped of their Mr. Stanfield lold a news confer- ence. The Conservative leader named Jean-Pierre Goyer, switched to minister of supply I and services from solicitor-gen- eral, and Gerard Pellclier, to communications minister from secretary of slate, as two such ministers. Mr. Stanfield said Bryco Mackascy, ivho resigned as manpower minisler Friday, "has been switched off all to- gether." two farmers, a doctor, a teacher and a union organizer balance Ihe new Trudeau cabi- nel. The lawyers on average are younger than the other minis lers. Their average age is 43 compared with 47 for the whole cabinet. Average age of the cabinet Mr. Trudeau formec after the 1968 election also was 47. Wilh only four minislers from west of Ontario, the new cabi- net fails to meet an ideal re gional representation of six to eight MPs from the four west em provinces. But Air. Trudeau had little choice: The Oct. 30 election left him with only seven MPs frim the Prairies and British Columbia together. ATLANTIC INCREASE Atlantic-area representation was increased by Affairs Minister Dan MacDp- four, reflecting a gain by the Liberals of three seats to 10 in that region. Twelve ministers are from Ontario, up from 10 before the election, and 10 are from Que- bec, up from nine. It has been a tradition that every federal cabinet should in- elude an English-speaking Prot- estant from Quebec, a French- speaking member from outside Quebec and a Roman Catholic of Irish descent. Those spots are filled, intentionally or other- wise, by Charles Drury in treas- ury, .lean-Eudes Dube in public works and Eugene Whelan in agriculture. The lawyers are: Minister Tnidcaii; Turner, finance; New president of calllemeii CALGARY (CP) George Morris of Merlin. Ont., has been elected president of the Cana- dian Cattlemen's Association, replacing Bert Hargrave of Ws.slsh, Alta. Mr. Hargrave resigned after winning the Medicine Hat con- stituency for the Progressive Conservative party in the Oct. 30 federal election.

One of the gunmen was wounded in the leg and the OCO-mark ransom was recovered, police reported.
