VANCOUVER, British Columbia
(AP) - As Prime Minister John Turner's
struggling campaign crossed the
Rocky Mountains ina chartered jet, the
Liberal Party leader heard a medley of
taunting songs float up the aisle from
the entourage of reporters at the rear.
One satirical ditty mocked Turner's
oft-repeated story of how people he
meets ask him why Canada doesn't
have a stronger economy, blessed as it
is with plentiful water, mineral riches,
lots of trees and - as he once said -
"reasonably intelligent" people.
To the refrain "Glory, Glory,
Hallelujah," the Canadian journalists
sang: "Why, oh why? We're asking
YOU, John" - suggesting that the
prime minister should offer some an-
swers, instead of repeating the
Relations between Turner and the
traveling reporters, while not hostile,
have become distinctly edgy as he sinks
deeper in the polls with only three
weeks to go before the Sept. 4 electiofi.
A survey published Saturday found
Turner's Liberals - who had a 10-point
lead barely a month ago - with 32 per-
cent of the decided vote to 51 percent for
the Progressive Conservatives.

JANICE GAMS, a College Board
spokeswoman, said ht eboard has no
clear explanation for this year's
smaller increases. But some think the
cooling of inflation plus the in-
creasingly fierce competition among
colleges for a scarcer number of.
qualified 18-year-olds may be keeping
tuition increases in check.
The 6 percent average increase is just
slightly above the 4 to 5 percent overall
inflation rate anticipated for next year,
said Kathleen Brouder, associate direc-
tor of the Board's College Scholarship
The 1984-85 survey calculated an
average tab of $9,022 for students at
private, four-year colleges who live on
campus - up 7 percent from a year
ago. For commuting students, costs
will total $7,782, or 6 percent higher
than last year.
At public, fou-year schools, total
costs will rise by 5 percent to $4,881 for
students living on campus, and a
similar increase to $3,906 for com-
