His appointment means relln quishing tho vice-chairmanship no bed of roses of the Alberta Environment 'Man, am I tail' says boy after 1P> years on knees TORONTO (CP) Viewing the world from hands and knees for most of his 13 years wasn't much fun for C.irlyle Husband, but tilings are dif- ferent now for the Barbados boy.

NEW ROAD MAPS EDMONTON (CP) New road maps, designed to ove come the frustrations of tryin lo find places on a huge ma which takes up most of 11 space in the front seat of a ca have been put out this year b the Alberta government bureau. A reduction in w i d t and a slight increase in leng allows the maps to fold into even parts instead of three uj even ones as formerly. reservation Authority and oving to Ottawa, far removed m his mixed farm Myrnam in northeastern Al- But Mr. Babcy, who started fining at 14 when liis father ed, does not intend to give up is operation. "I don't think I will ever com- etcly give up farming." Involved in organiza- ons since he started farming, Ir. Babey made it to the board the Farmers Union of Alberta i 1958 and to its presidency in 963. ORMED UNIFARM He became the first president f Unifarm in March, 1971, and csigncd last November to take ic conservation post. He led ic move to create Unilarm by nerger of the farmers' unior the Alberta Federation ol in doing so led he fight against merger ol his nion with the militant Nationa' Banners' Union. Formation of Unifarm, now representing of Alberta's 0.000 farmers on a direct mem oership basis, was an acccm >lisnment unprecedented in Ca nadian agriculture, bringing to gether individual farmers and special-interest groups. He is optijnistic the new coun cil will be supported by NFU President Roy Atkinson and his organization. "Our dcors will be open lo al tho organizations because we'l need a combined effort an' deas from all tho groups to di the best job for the industry." Mr. Babey said that for man; years agriculture concentrate on production and "did a darn ;ood job." "At the same time, we per haps did not put as much em phasis on the marketing sid and over the years I've a ways tried to get producers in volved in the marketing proc ess." BENTEFITS EXPECTED While the new council is goto, to cost chairman salary is estimated at abou benefits to the pr< ducers involved would "far ou weigh the cosis." "When commodity agenrie are set up I think there will b a deduction on the product, hi it will depend on the kind plan and recommendation th the producers themselves su mtt." He emphasized the counc has "no intention" of. imposin arketing boards on any group producers against their fear expressed vocif- roiisly by livestock producers uring the 21 monttis it took to et Iho marketing act through arliament. "Even if we tried, it wouldn't ork because it has to come rom the majority of producers Tier they have considered all leir problems. Then the council an move into iUs role of assist- ng them and facilitating a mar- etiiig board." Designed to end the so-called chicken-and-egg the act rovides for a system of na- ional marketing boards to facil- tate orderly marketing. Various provinces have ormed their own marketing wards and have been accused f restricting interprovincial rade, with Quebec insisting hat all eggs marketed in its ju- risdiction be moved through a irovincial board. Othc" p--ov- nces retaliated, Imposing 1m- restrictions on Quebec iroiler- chickens. Tho Quebec action resulted after Manitoba egg priducci-s shipped their surplus into the eastern province at prices lower han Quebec producers could match. "This Is one of the problems hat the national council will be confronted Mr. Babey said when asked whether mar- set sharing and the imposition of production quotas could hurt producers in any one area. "1 think you will have produc- ers looking at their problem from llio different regions in terms of the total national good I've always had a lot of faith in producers being able to work out the particulars when the objective is an improve for the industry in total." Stolen egg returned EDMONTON (CP) Even the meanest of thieves can be soft hearted. In an apologetic note, tliieves have told police where to lo cate a three foot long choco- late Easter egg stolen from a shopping centre last week. The note said that culprits realized they were "the mean est thieves in town." The egg, weighing 80 pounds lias been returned.
