The UN notice said: "Per- sonal packages arriving by mail during this period will not bp delivered to United Nations headquarters. Staff members will be informed where they may collect them and it will be the staff member's responsi- bility to make the pickup." The employees were also ad- vised not to ask friends in for "social visits" and were cau- tioned that whenever a visitor came to see a staff member, the latter would have to "pro- vide an escort" from lobby to his office. "No visitor is to be permitted freedom of the secretariat said the circular.

Tanaka and his Chinese counterpart Chou En-lai opened the first session of their dis- cussions in the Great Hall of the People 20 minutes behind schedule. Tanaka is the first Japanese prime minister to set foot on the Chinese mainland since the Second World War when war- time leader Hideki Tojo visited Peking during the Japanese oc- cupation of tiie capital. Tanaka was greeted on ar- rival by the Chinese premier who stood by his side as the na- tional anthems of the two coun- tries were played and the flags of Japan and China fluttered in tile background. It was the first time in 27 years tliat the Japanese flag had flown here and the Japa- nese national sym- bol of repression for millions of Chines been freely played. Tanaka and his parly were again greeled by Premier Chou and other senior Chinese offi- cials when they arrived at the Great Hall of the People for tbe first session of discussions ex- pected to load to the estab- lishment of diplomatic relations between Peking and Tokyo.

IMPACT FEARED Today the party leaders con- tinue their separate paths to Ihe Oct. 30 showdown: Mr. Trudeau rests in Calgary, Mr. Stanfield campaigns in Van- couver, Mr. Lewis visits the Ontario communities of Brant- toril, Kitchener and Waterloo, and Social Credit Leader Real Caouette is in Retjina. Liberal organizers were re- ported anxiously assessing the ecloral impact of Mr. ideau's four-letter obscen- same one he was ac- used of uttering in the House Commons. Organizers feared might wholly or partially ase what they saw as a good mpression left by him during ancouver open-line radio dis- ussions.

On another call-in show, at he other end of the continent, Ir. Stanfield was asked by the rogram host to submit lo a ttle psycho-analysis. The key uestion was: what animal do ou most want to be? A lion, Mr. Stanfield replied. 'I've always admired lions 'ery much. They represent vhat's noble in the jungle." He aid he doss not want to be a culture. REVIVE DEPARTMENT In a more serious vein, he .old Iris audience, listeners of 28 Atlantic Provinces radio sta- ions, that as prime minister he would re-create a separate fish- cries department. The former department now is blended with the environment department. That won him enthusiastic praise from the caller who had raised the subject. New Democratic Leader Lewis lashed the prime minis ter for "false and untrue' statements concerning unem ployment. He referred to Mr. Trudeau'a staiemenl lhat there are unfilled jobs and that man: persons prefer to slay on unem ployment insurance. "I think it takes a particulai kind of conscience and a par ticular kind of gall to say tha the unemployed arc Ihe bums of Canada. Thai's nnlnic, that1! false and that's unworthy of tin leader of a country. "There is unemployment ii Ibis country, there is massiv unemployment in this country for which the Trudeau govern ment is responsible and I hop the Canadian people will not b lulled by the prime ministe into thinking otherwise becaus he used words that are comin off a forked tongue." In Vancouver, Social Cred: Leader Real Caouette cha lenged all other party leader to a televised debate. He also criticized M: Trudeau's latest obscenity, say ing "the.-e are words tha shouldn't be used by a prim minister."

The new regulations, a: nounccd in June by Bryc Mackasey, minister of ma power and immigration, wei intended lo ease the rlepar ment's backlog of visitors wh were applying for landed imm grant stalus.

PieiTe-Paul Schweitzer, the IF's managing director, said ;rcemeiit on the basic prin- lies of monetary reform he- re lite next annual meeting ould be a "major achieve- enl" although the official nited Slates line is that such jrecment is possible by then.

But ho as optimistic that the week- ng session could make real ogress toward an eventual so- ution. The main accomplishment is fpected to be the naming of a ew 20-membcr group of offi- als, broadly representing all lembcr countries, to do the ac- ual negotiating.

Tem- porary repairs were made In t h e so-called Smithsonian Agreement hammered out in a special IMF meeting at the Smithsonian Institution here iast December. There is no dearth of plans for monetary reform, but little agreement on what the ap- proach should be. As tiie annual report on the IMF executive points out, there is a growing consensus lhat there should be a gradual dis- appearance of gold and U.S. dollars in favor of Special Drawing Rights, Ihe "paper old" created by the IMF three ears ago, as the principal in- trumcnt to settle international ebts. But U.S. officials have made lear that Ite U.S. will turn a eaf ear to monetary reform iroposals until the big U.S. bal- ,nce-of-paymenls deficit is vipcd out. Thus ttie present U.S. trade deficit would have to 50 transformed info a substan- ial trade surplus and lha Americans want monetary alks and trade discussions losely linked.
