Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Trudeau studies election campaign with workers many with TORONTO (CV) r- The Lib- eral election campaign was in ways a traditional one. i flurry of government gifts and old-fashioned hoopla crammed into the last eight weeks. But at the end Saturday, in- stead of a rousing finale, Prime Minister Trudeau stood quietly and seriously before a small crowd of parly workers here and for nearly ?.i hour candidly and critically reviewed his campaign. Most observers who had trav- elled many of the miles with him 'in his campaign jet said it was the best speech of his campaign. With evident tones of frustra- tion, often building to mild an- ger, he said ho was relieved to be able to speak freely without worry about press reaction, a reaction that obviously dis- pleased him during the c a m- paign.

The escape came as the RA's legal political wing, the Sinn Fein was ending a two-day confer- ence in Dublin to discuss future :actics in their struggle to unite the. halves of Ireland. The seven escapers over- powered a military policeman at the camp after emerging from their tunnel, scaled a 15- foot wall and were driven off in vehicles that had been waiting for them outside. Four others termine their own future, to an- nounce a date for the with- drawal of British troops, and to declare an amnesty for de- tained republicans and all on the wanted list. Sean MacStiofain, com- mander of the Provisional IRA and a wanted man both here and in the North, told the con- ference there would be no let- up in the fighting in Northern Ireland unless these demands are met. not much of the press here tonight; I feel I can say pretty much any- thing.

Turning to reporters standing near the platform, Mr. Trudeati said he has been reading selec- tions of their election reports. "We've been fighting the media and I think the media has been fighting us." He made it clear that his con cept of what an election shouk be is not shared by reporters whose drive was to write ex citing, headline-grabbing sto- ries.

CLEARBROOK, B.C. (CD Provincial Opposition Lcade" A. C. Bennett concentrated most of his attack on British Columbia's New Democratic Party government at a federal Social Credit election banquet Saturday night, including a charge that "patronage is back in its worst form in this prov- ince." Speaking to more than EiOO persons on behalf of Cyril Shel- ford, former B.C. agriculture minister and federal Social Cre- dit candidate in FVaser Valley East, lie said of the new gov- ernment: "In their first few reeks of office they have ap- >ointed dozens and dozens o! jai-ty heelers of the socialist party." Mr. Bennett said officials ap pointed during his 20 years as sremier and described by op xments as recipients of patron age, "were outstanding peon! who got there on their merits my friends." Mr. Bennett said the NDP has destroyed the confidence of in- vestors in the province. The new government will be rich with the money saved by the Social Credit government for the first two years, he said, but when that has all been spent there will be no money in the treasury and the voters will turn against the NDP.
