TORONTO (CP) Robert Nixon goes back to work as Ontario Liberal leader today, "older and wiser" after a third-ballot victory at the par- ty convention Sunday. "There were many lessons in the convention and, I sup- pose, most of them were for the Opposition leader said after defeating Norman Cafik 992 to 675. Victory was cemented for the 45-year-old cattle farmer when Donald Deacon, 53, who trailed the other two on the se- cond ballot, threw his support behind Mr. Nixon. Second- ballot totals were 768 votes for Mr. Nixon, 613 for Mr. Cafik and 316 for Mr. Deacon. The Liberal leader had the support of less than half of the delegates to the convention on the first ballot and, along with other party officials, was mystified by the fact that more than 300 of the registered delegates didn't vote. After the first ballot, the count was 730 for Mr. Nixon, 574 for Mr. Cafik and 402 for Mr. Deacon. Michael John Houlton, 24, an economic na- tionalist, got 11 votes on the first ballot and was knocked off. Mr. Nixon moved to salve the wounds of an unexpectedly bitter campaign when he praised his two main op- ponents in his acceptance speech. He called Mr. Deacon, "a gentleman unafraid" and "an Military strategy organizer par excellence, a man whom we all respect. Mr. Deacon, member of the legislature for Toronto York Centre, said he expected Mr. Nixon to implement some of his grass roots organization and a decentralization of government. Mr. Nixon said he was "older and wiser" and more confident of the issues, but this was the first test of his leadership since he was acclaimed in 1967. The former school teacher who has lost two previous elections to the Progressive Conservatives told reporters he believed the Liberals might win in 1975, partly because the Tories had "undermined" the confidence of the voters and Premier Davis "has never been more vulnerable."

By THE CANADIAN PRESS "Air traffic control tower operations returned to normal across the country Sunday as air traffic control assistants in Vancouver and Winnipeg were back on the job.

He said the Israeli army's offensive against Egypt was in full sw- ing "when the ceasefire was forced upon us." "But we did succeed in reaching a position whereby the Israel government could negotiate from a position of military he added. Acknowledging that Israel's military intelligence conclud- ed too late that the Arabs planned to attack on the Jewish holy day of Yom Kip- pur, Elazar said: "Our evaluation that the Egyptians and Syrians would actually at- tack did not give us enough warning and enough time to mobilize reserves."
