'Trade war' could hurt Grits in vote contest By DAVE McINTOSIl OTTAWA (CP) Immedi- ately after a general election, the "outs" know their place and keep it. Tho opposition parties gener- ally arc beaten, crestfallen and facing four long years of uphill work, meek and subdued.

Black, president of the American Water Works As- sociation. Mr. Black, a consulting engi- neer from Gainesville, Fla., said ir an interview that Cali- fornia is running low on water, which it gets from the Colorado Hiver. But when the Colorado Riv- er's supply is exhausted, it will be cheaper for California to im- port water from British Colum- bia and the Yukon than to pipe it across the American Rockies from its own reserves, he said. Mr. Black believes that Can- ada should sell its water to the U.S. because Canada has "one- quarter of the world's fresh water." Harold Cardinal president of the Indian Association of Al- berta. Mr. Cardinal said he spoke to Al Adair, minister without port- folio in charge of northern de- velopment for the province.

Mr. Cardinal is seeking meeting with the provincial representatives following a vis- it to Alberta reserves by Rus- sell Moses, special assistant to the federal minister of Indian affairs. Mr. Moses cut short his visit because he found conditions so bad. "I can't stand to see any he said. "I wouldn't have believed it unless I saw it" Dies in cyclone CALCUTTA (Renter) At least 17 persons are known to have died in a cyclone that smashed across the Indian state of West Bengal. Several thous- and bamboo homes were de- stroyed by the 60-mile-an-ho vinds. ing some defeated opponents comfortable if not cushy govern ment jobs. Such a government usually basks in its public mandate and the opposition sits but quiet. But after a couple of years, the opposition's flagging spirits revive. It has lo make a mark if the public is to know it's still alive The government, used to an easy time of it for a couple of years, may get rattled and make some what appear to be the opposition MPs arc there like terriers. But the government is still the government. H controls the the date of the next election. This is about where the Com mons stands now, in its third year after an election. The opposition is wading in full tilt, trying to put the gov ernmcnt off balance and keep it off balance, hoping for a big administration mistake. Liberals concede that the Con- servatives and NDP have given them some flutters with the con- certed attack on the govern- ment's non-payment of storage subsidies to prairie farmers. The government argues it will pay even bigger sums under legislation now in the parlia- mentary mill. PAYMENTS AX ISSUE'.' But is this a major elect: issue? Even opposition MPs say it i not, on the grounds that th government can start makin payments, even if smaller one than the opposition wants, any time.

This issue is President NLx on's surcharge on imports and other economic moves which may seriously damage the Ca> nadian economy. Already Prime Minister Tru deau. Finance Minister Edgai Benson, External Affail's Minis- 9er Mitchell Sharp and lessci lights have vigorously attackec the U.S. moves. The phrase "trade war" is in the air and Mr, Trudeau has hinted at agonizing reappraisal of relations with the U.S. COULD SEEK MANDATE Mr. Trudeau could ask for a new mandate to handle this new and critical situation. As an issue, it far outweighs non-payment of wheat subsidies the law, the opposi- tion calls even unemploy- ment and inflation. The opposition knows this, of course, as well as the govern- ment. There is a lot of opposition sound and ostensible fury in the Commons these days. But the government is still at the piano. As British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli said, a ma- ority is always better than the jest repartee. LLAINL COWlfl I L.UPL MLOIJ, E. P.
