With 3 years Experience to back this up. Who is the greater or Trudeau? OTTAWA (CP) Former prime minister John Diefenbaker and Prime Minister Trudeau vied with each other Wednesday over who is'the greater royalist, to the in- creasing amusement of the Commons. Mr. Diefenbaker opened the exchange, asking if there is any truth to a rumor that Senator Paul Martin's impending ap- pointment to London will be as ambassador for Canada, rather than as Canada's high com- missioner. He was concerned, he said, about weakening the ties with the Com- monwealth, within which governments are repre- sented in sister Com- monwealth countries by high commissioners. "As a member in good standing of the Royal Society of Mr. Trudeau replied, "I would never contemplate such a move." Mr. Diefenbaker, noting that he too is a member of the Royal Society of Canada, was back on his feet immediately. "How did it come about then, that the royal got knocked out of the Royal Mr. Trudeau retorted that he is a member of the society "in my own while Mr. Diefenbaker is "anly an er-officio he is a former prime minister. He then blamed the Die- fenbaker administration for taking "Elizabeth II" off Canada's mail boxes. Apparently angry, Mr. Diefenbaker denied Mr. Trudeau's statement: "It's completely false and he knows it." Mr. Trudeau shrugged Later, the prime minister rose to rekindle the dispute. He said' there is a dis- tinction made between mail trucks and mail box- es. Government policy was to paint trucks with three insignia: Canada Canada; Royal Royal; and the Canadian coat of arms. In the case of mail boxes, however, the government never removed the insignia Royal Mail because it never was there. However, the insignia "E H standing for Elizabeth II Regina, "which was on the boxes in the was taken off in the early 1960s by the Diefenbaker government. The House exploded in laughter as Mr. Diefen- .baker shot back: "The truth could not have been more truthfully stated in the reverse." He then attacked the Liberals for a resolution he said was passed at a party convention in Montreal in 1966. The resolution was "to abolish the be said. Mr. Diefenbaker said two of Mr. Trudeau'sf ministers voted for including Transport Minister Jean Marchand. The prime minister himself had not, and Mr. Diefenbaker quoted him as explaining that he "regard- ed the Queen as of less im- portance than skiing or even snowshoeing." The argument ended there. Honorable senators confused Speaking of freeloading OTTAWA (CP) The af- fairs of state ground to a halt in the Senate Wednesday as Senators debated whether they were officially invited to a reception being given by the Parliamentary Press Gallery. Invitations to the gathering were issued through the caucus chairmen of the vari- ous political parties and there was some confusion about whether Senators were in- vited. An informal notice on the gallery bulletin board read: "A gallery reception for MPs will be held Wednesday, Oct. 1 Adjust carburetor. 11 Ignition system analysis. 2 Lubricate heat riser valve. 3 Supply and install new points and condenser.

Here are excerpts of what the Senators said: SENATOR GEORGE VAN ROGGEN Colum- Honourable senators, the question period may not be quite the right moment at which to raise this matter, but I would like to raise it in the form of a question to the leader of the government, as to whether or not he wishes to make a statement concerning the reception being held this afternoon by the National Press Gallery for all mem- bers of Parliament.... It came to my attention only through attending our national caucus this morning, as I have no notice on my desk to this effect, and I thought, in case other senators had also not received this invitation, that it should be known to all members of this, chamber that they are invited by the national press to the reception at six o'clock SENATOR RAY .PER-. RAULT (government If a general invitation has in fact been issued to members of Parliament to at- tend a reception of this type, I would think it involves every member of this chamber. SENATOR DAVID CROIX. They presented it to caucus. SENATOR ALLISTER GROSART I wonder if I could ask the leader of the government as to whether or not he thinks that if we are not invited we should go. SENATOR PERRAULT: I think that is a decision which must be made by the individ- ual SENATOR JACQUES .FLYNN (Opposition No coercion. SENATOR van ROGGEN: I thought if was made quite clear at caucus that members of the House of Commons also had not received individual in- vitations so I do not think that members of this chamber should feel that they are being treated differently by the press corps in not being in- vited individually.... SENATOR it could be very embarrassing, we should, through the usual channels, find out if we are invited SENATOR FLYNN: I know we are not welcome, but I should like to know if we are invited. SENATOR PERRAULT it seems to me that those honorable senators who are interested in attending should make inquiries on their own behalf. SENATOR DAVID WALKER. It would be an opportunity for the press gallery to see most of us for the first time. HON. .SENATORS: Hear, hear. SENATOR vu ROGGEN but I wish to say that the chairman of oar caucus inter- rupted the proceedings later to say that he had made in- quiries and had found out that the invitation was specifically to an members of Parlia- ment, including senators. SENATOR FLYNN: But we are not bound by your caucus. SENATOR van ROGGEN: I know yon are not bound by the caucus, but that situation has been cleared up. SENATOR CROLL- Honor able senators, you see wha happens. Ttae honorable sena tor gets up and be says that al members of Parliament are invited "including senators.' This is exactly what we object to We are all members Parliament Standing room only With just enough room to stand, a seagull to have found one way of beating parking any time on Toronto waterfront.
