MEMBER CANADIAN DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORP. (LETHBRID6E) Telephone 4 discounts suggested EDMONTON (CP) Discounts of up to 50 per cent on long distance calls in the north are suggested in a revis- ed tariff application being prepared by Canadian National Telecom- munications. The application will be presented to the Canadian Transport Commission in November. CN officials say the downward revision is design- ed to encourage more use of direct distance dialing in the north. The new tariff would include introduction of a one- minute minimum for direct distance calls, compared with the present three minutes. A 25-per-cent discount for calls on Sundays and between 6 p.m. and midnight, and a 50- per-cent discount on calls between midnight and 8 a.m. are also suggested.

Forty-one members of Con- one senator and the return to Capitol Hill unop- posed. The other 18 of them no Re- publican opponents and face only token opposition from independents. The only Republican unop- posed is Representative Charles Whalen of North Dakota. In this election with no voting for president, 35 of the 50 governorships are open and all are being contested by both major parties and a long list of independents of all political hue. Of those open, 23 are held by Democrats and 12 by Republicans: Nine Democrats and six Republicans occupy the governorships not subject to election this year. All 435 seats in the House of Representatives are open as are 34 of the 100 Senate seats. At present, the Democrats hold 20 of the 34 Senate seats and 37 of the 66 not up for elec- tion. Republicans hold 27 of the 66, with one conservative and one independent occupy- ing the others. DOMINATE HOUSE The Democrats also dominate the House, 248 to 187. Many of the Democrats fac- ing light, if any, opposition represent constituencies in the Deep South, traditional Democratic stronghold. That the shadow of Huey Long, the late Kmgfish, still hangs over Louisiana is in- dicated by the fact that nobody has come forward to challenge Senator Russel Long, his son, or represen- tative Gillis Long, Huey's cousin who took the seat in 1972. on the retirement of Speedy Long, another cousin of Huey. The other two senators with no Republican opposition are James Allots of Alabama, op- posed by Alvin Abercrombie of the Prohibition party, and Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, member of the Senate Watergate committee, runn- ing against James Kimmel of the People's party. In'the House, Texas shows with eight Democrats unop- posed in 20 races; in Florida, six out of 15 are back by accla- mation as are three each :n California and Tennessee. Massachusetts, home of the Kennedys and so strongly Democratic that it was the only state to go for George McGovern agcinst Richard Nixon's landslide in 1972, shows six democrats as virtual shoo-ins in the 12 constituencies. Among those certain to be, back in Massachusetts are- James Burke, co-author of the moribund Burke-Hartke bill of, pj otsctionist trade legislation, (Tip) O'Neill. j He's got wheels Gail .and Lawrence Sweet of Oshawa, Ont. watch as their crippled seven-year-old son, Scott, gets ready to take a spin on his specially-designed bicycle. The bike, a three-speed with a hand crank and an extra lever system of brakes, was designed and built by the boy's father. Mr. Sweet says the design may even" be adopted by the Ontario Society for Crippled Children Centre in Toronto.
