OTTAWA The rank and file civil servants have little (o be worried about if there is a change of government at Ot- tawa in the upcoming general election. But there will he some shifts among the top echelons. Long before the official clec- lion campaign got under- way Progiessive Conservative Lender Robert Stanfield, as leader of Her Majesty's Loyal opposition, made it clear there were a number of senior gov- ernment employees he would want to move, if and when he took office. He was not talking about having them fired, but he was talking about having them transferred. GIVEN HAD ADV1CK He had in mind particularly the people giving the govern- ment advice at the top levels in the finance and economic fields. Mr. Staufield is con- vinced the gove-nment lias been getting bad advice. He is not alone in ibis ns there are Liberals and members ot the New Democratic and Social Credit parties who would agree. In addition, no less an author- ity than the chairman of the government's own Economic Council of Canada, said recently that the government attempts to Irade off high unemployment in favor of low inflation has failed. He said there are serious doubts about the policy's usefulness. New Democratic leader Da- vid Lewis was quoted out of St. John's Newfoundland, recently, as saying on a radio hot-line program that a number ot key advisers to the government would get the sack if he formed the next government. However later he explained that he did not say anyone would be fired. He said there would he too much expertise involved with such top people just to dismiss them. Rather than being fired they would be transferred to less sensitive posts. Moved into their positions would be top personnel who think more like the people in his party, Mr. Lewis explained. DIEF CHANGED MINI) h e n John piefenbaker achieved the surprising upset in the 1957 election, turning out of office the aging St. Laurent Liberal administration, he told friends and associates that he hoped to "clean out" some de- partments. The government service had to be purged of some key men whom he be- lieved to'be so pro-Liberal that they would neve- be able to get along with a Diefenbakcr gov- ernment and his new policy ideas. However he had been only in office about six months when he was confiding to his cabinet that whole-sale dismissals of top level civil servants was nei- ther practical nor possible, few changes were made but not nearly the 'firings" that some Conservatives had hoped for and some Lberals had feared. STRONG ARGUMENTS There is always a worry among supporters of a new! government that senior mem-' hers of the public service will thwart the administration in its attempts to introduce new pol- icies. The public service has re- course to the argument that many of the proposals a new government wants to put into action, have been already ex- plored.The plans, nr projects have been considered and aban- doned. When a fresh new cabinet takes over and makes its sug- gestions it encounters strong arguments from the ex- perienced administrators in the civil service. They often have to point out that the policy while it sounds like a good one on the surface won't work out in practice. The Trudeau administration when it succeeded the Pearson government was supposed to be set on a course that would really shake up the "eslab- A few deputy minis- ters were moved inlo new slots, the prime minister's office was reorganized and the staff greatly enlarged. Rut the government mandarins continued in power. Some changes introduced by the Trudeau government enhanced, their authority. They were never happier. Now they arc waiting with lingers crossed to learn the verdict of the peopla at the polls.

(CP Wirephoto) EEGTNA (CP5 Provincial health ministers drew up a list of possible solutions to curbing the high cost of drug adver- tising, including one sugges- tion for federal restrictions. In a statement issued follow- ing a closed meeting at ilie first ay of the two-day session, the ninislers pointed out that sales romotion represents about 30 ents out of every dollar spent n drugs. The expenditures iclude costs of specific pro- notional efforts directed at doc- ors and amount to more than per tioctor each year. HREE riEMF.DIES Three remedies were dis- nsscd: curbs on drug ad- ertising perhaps through re- trictions on income tax deduc- ibility; prescription drug .romotion to the dissemination of scientific information to doc- ors and pharmacists; of "give- aways" and "gimmicks" and ligh pressure sales tactics in he promotion of brand name drugs.

Considerable Interest was shown in the idea of govern- ments negotiating wholesale prices with the major drug pro- ducers, both foreign and do- mestic. The statement said such negotiations were seen as a possible alternative to es- tablishment of provincial bulk purchasing programs such as one being studied by Saskatche- wan. "The ministers also wish to review with the federal govern- ment their concerns over exist- ing patent laws which it was felt operated, in instances, to restrain competition and cre- ate monopoly situations which acted against the best interests of the consumer in Canada." All provinces were said to have supported the activities the federal government in es- tablishing the Drug Quality As- surance Program. The provinces agreed that (he. design and implementation of this program should ensure that drug preparations were sub- jected to necessary quality tests in accord with existing and pro- jected provincial programs and priorities. Checks tampering with grain trains VANCOUVER (CP) Feder- al Labor Minister Martin O'- Connell said Tuesday lie doesn't know whether anyone is tam- pering with the movenvMt of grain traias lo the Port of Van- couver, but he will look into the situation here. Speaking at a news confer- ence, Mr. O'Connell said he would nttcmpt lo gel clarifi- cation of the wheat shipments from .lustier Minister Otto I.ang, who v. also responsible for the Canadian wheat board. Mr. O'Connell snid he would investigate after being asked about rcpo-ts that there would be no grain cars arriving in Vancouver after Thursday. The reports began after long- shoremen and grain handlers reported there were no grain cars for unloading at two ele- vators. Mr. O'Connell said railways have teen "scrambling around" In find enough cars to handle grain shipments, and repeated a previous announcement that (he government wonM build 2.000 railway r.irs lo he leased for handling grain shipments.
