The Soviet premier, usually frugal with his facial expres- sions, even guffawed heartily en one occasion as he sat through part of the Commons quostion period from the speaker's gal- lery. His mirth was aroused by a question from Jack Homer (PC "In light of Canada's with- drawal from U.S. economic en- vironment and our acknowl- edged friendship with Russia can it be expected that the missile bases at La Macaza, Que., and North Bay, Out., will be reactivated with Russian missiles in the near Had Mr. Kosygin laughed any harder when his interpreter translated it, he might have fallen over the gallery railing and into Mr. Homer's lap.

Security was tight, but not ob- vious. Mrs. Trudeau appeared in the Commons for the first time since her marriage in March, sitting next to Mr. Kosygin's daughter, Lyudmilla. There were also some serious questions asked, mostly before Mr. Kosygin arrived. Opposition Leader Robert Stanfield queried Mr. Sharp on whether Mr. Kosygin had voiced support for the Canadian view that a worldwide nuclear test bnn is needed.

Cambodia f Lon Nol said today he set up a military dicta- torship to halt a drift into an- archy. He announced a new- go vernment which he said would lead the nation to victory. The semi- nvalid Cambodian strongman said in a radio speech that because "certain groups, clans and associations" were "seeking to divide the na- tion by sowing Cam- bodia had been heading "toward defeat.1' The only alternative, he said, was to "combat this anarchy" I by ending "this sterile game of j democracy." There was some confusion over exactly what Lon No] meant when he spoke of "groups, clans and associa- tions." Some believe he referred i to the embryonic political par- I ties which were formed after j the ouster of Prince Norodom Sihanouk, the head of state, in March, 1970. But Information Minister Long Boret said he re- ferred to a "fifth column" serv- ing the Viet Cong.

This was down sbirply from the S64.3 million in 1963 largely because Mexico volun- tarily dgreed to reduce cotton exports to Canada in line with Canada's policy of protecting higher-priced Canadian textiles. Canadian exports to Mexico in 1970 totalled S91.7 million in such goods as stell. auto parts, machinery, newsprint and pulp. Mexico also benefits from the spending of the or more Canadian tourists who visit Mexico annually. While Canadian officials say the U.S. 10-per-cent added tariff certainly will eomc up in discus- sions, the purpose of the minis- terial meeting is consultalNi, not setting policy. Mexico, like Canada, has teen pressing Washington for exemp- tion from the new tariff, which it says affects 55.6 per cent of its exports to the U.S. The sur- charge affects about billion of Canada's American sales of' about billion. l JOINT ACTION RUMORED Reports from Mexico City this ner.
