Social Credit Leader Real Caouette, who flies lo Calgary for a party convention Fri- day, remained in his home Que- bec riding of Temiscamlngue. Today, Prime Minister Trudeau is back In Oltawa while Mr. Stanfield visits Ke- noia and Thunder Bay, Ont., and Mr. Lewis Is in Toronto. WON'T BE RADICAL The prime minister told the London rally the government is striving to correct inequality throughout society by such means as tax reform but will not risk radical, untested ideas which "will Ihreaten the con- fidence of the domeslic and in- lematlonal business commu- nities." The key lo all economic anri social reforms was a round and prosperous economy. Mr. Tnideau also said the governmeul will not tolerale abuses of Ihe unemployment in- surance plan, which he called the best anywhere. Those who tried to get unemployment in- surance benefits fraudulently would be sougtit out and stopped. That brought the greatest ap- plause from the near-capacity audience in the grandstand, more than when he declared: "Canadians are earning more, spending more and sav- ing more lhan at any previous time in our history." CALLS FOR REVIEW Mr. Stanfield, during a busy day of coffee parties and tele- vision interviews In Yarmouth and Sydney, called for a review of the government program of aid to depressed areas. He charged that Ihe vast areas eligible for such most half the down the amounts available and made Ihem ineffective In helping such areas of tradi- Uonal disparily as Sydney. He also said government fi- nancial and Iransportation pol- icies lhat slow down the econ- omy and maintain high freight rates in depressed areas work against the regional economic development grants.

(CP Wirephoto) Small merchants beer, wine sale proposal not favorable TORONTO (CP) Seven To- ronto policemen needed hospi- tal treatment and 16 persons were charged Wednesday night after about 80 demonstrators charged a downtown meeting hall, wiicre a white supremacy group was about to hold a meeting protesting non-wlu'te immigration into Canada. Fifteen men and one w o m a Anne IIoll- ngshead, 19, of Hamilton were charged with offences in- cluding assaulting police, pos- session of dangerous weapons and causing a disturbance. Several policemen were hit with wooden staves used to carry placards, and one needed 10 stitches to close a head cut. Two members of the Western Guard, the group holding the meeting, received minor scratches when about 80 police materialized as pickets bearing red flags and placards closed In on the door of the auditorium Just before the meeting was due to start. Those arrested Included Jo- vaune Richard Rhodes, 26, and Ian both of Ham- ilton, and David Orton, 38, of Montreal. The Western Guard is a suc- cessor to the Edmund Burke Society, a right-wing, anti-Com- munist group that has been in- volved in several violent in cldents in Toronto in the las five years. During the 10-minute melee outside, demonstrators and po- lice fought hand to hand at thi doorway to the downtown hal and surged hack into the strec and into traffic-filled College Street with police and demon strators rolling on the pave- ment. Within 15 to 20 minutes of the first police call for help, th block fronting the hall wa sealed off by more than 100 po licemen who arrived on mo- torcycles, horses and in squad cars and paddy wagons. After the arrests, there was further troublo and th Veslcrn Guard meeting was onducted with about 25 attend- ig. Joe Baxter, owner of a store icross the street, said: "The ight really started fast. 1 idn't see who struck first, hut he police were right in the middle and a bunch of guys vlth red flags were really giv- ng it to them. They were sure littlng the police with those sticks. I saw quite a few police- nen get hurt." Inside the hall, about 25 men of varying ages, many In mill- ary type shirts and carrying canes and walking sticks, min- gled in front of a Canadian flag anked by two Western Guard >anners of while, green and jlack. Chairman Donald Andrews, 30, a municipal health In- spector, said: "I don't know any Canada of an Indian heri- _e, nor African heritage, I only know a Canada of a west ern European heritage." "Some of you wags might think I'm a racist. I'm a white man and I like whiles first." He called federal anti-hale legislation an "anti-freedom bill" and warned the audience that they may be over-run by non-whites. "In five years you'll find yourselves a stranger In this land." three eously: to things control simulta- ears in certain areas; to pro- food, clothing and income or the Eskimos and Indians, nd to save the bears from ex- nction. No solution to the roblem will be simple." The situation hasn't changed, e said in an interview Wednes- ay. Mr. Jonkel, who researched lack bears while attending JBC, said there is a sub-popu- alion of polar bears on the -abrador coast lhat is either isappearing or possibly has Esappeared. He personally does not con- ider polar bears as an endan- gered species. T would refer to certain sub- j Deputations as endangered and' >ther sub-populations as being n good shape and certainly ca- >able of being hunted as a ben- efit to the species." He said research shows that 'anada has the largest number of polar bears, probably well over half of the world popu- ation, which is estimated at 20.0CQ. The 41-ycar-olti Chicago na- ive said people feel slrongly about polar bears. ''I think people feel very strong about bears as well as other large predalors per- haps it might be relaled lo our own evolution in competition with Ihese animals." five main points of his parly's agriculture platform, said "the net farm income growth plan is a comprehensive policy to pre- serve family farms and rural communities." DETAILS POINTS The five points of the NDP plan arc: farm Incomes through guaranteed minimum prices on all commodities. farm costs through tax reforms. machinery costs. for provincial land programs. -Low-cost credit lo encour- age farming. The New Democrats would also slop the abandonment of rait lines serving small commu- nilies and nationalize the CPH, he said. Mr. Lewis said the minimum commodity prices would be based on Ihe farmer's cosls of producfion lo overcome the problems of farmers being at the mercy of a market place over wluch they have virtually no control. A prices review board would require farm ma- chinery manufacturers to ius- tify all price increases. EDMONTON (CP) A pro- posal lo allow sale of beer and wine in small family grocery stores was greeled with less than enthusiasm Wednesday by the- Alberta Liquor Legislation committee. Ttie suggestion was submitted by representatives of. the retail food merchants on the final day of public hearings here. The committee is reviewing the Li- quor Act and is accepting sug- gested changes. Beer and wine sales would help small gpoce.'s fight over- whelming competition of large supermarkets, said the mer-' chants. They also said It would end discrimination they encounter because supermarkets often are located next to an Alberta Li- quor Control Board outlet. "The primary purpose In wanting the sale of beer and wine, is to bring more people Into the a spokesman said. The submission asked that only the small family-owned grocers be allowed to sell the liquor.
