Under the parliamentary sys-

Of the four parties In the run-
ning, only two-Prime Minister

es and the Liberals, led by No-
bel Peace Prize winner Lester
B. Pearson — have enough na-
tional support to win. The Lib-
erals, according to the pollsters,
are slight favoites.
If, as most pundits predict,
neither major party wins a cl-
ear majority, the key to the new
Parliament like the last one will
lie with two "splinter” groups,
the right-wing Social Credit and
the Socialist New Democrats.

party captured 30 and the New

DALLAS — The biggest asset a region ran have in this age
of atoms and spare is highly developed brainpower, and the

Engineers, mathematicians and chemists, pouring out of
■nlvrrsities by the hundreds, are fine, but not the whole answer.
High octane brainpower nowadays means the doctor of philoso-

ern and New England schools that use the famed Brook haven

8RC was chartered Feb. 14 under the corporate name of

to ft million, including a big one from the National Aeronautics

It has a 1,400 — acre campus north of Dallas In the Piano-
