The program, also known as Operation Lift, would see farm- ers compensated for every taken out of wheat and put into summerfallow, and additional per acre if the acres were seeded in 1970 to perennial orage crops. Unveiled in February, the program was designed as an In- native to cut back on wheat production. About 950 million wsbeis of wheat expected a ghit grain elevators and pri- vate storage bins by next July. Mr. Olson said Operation Lift was not meant to provide in- come to replace 'that enjoyed during the bounty years of 1964 to mid-1967. "This is not designed as a profitable exercise. It is a par- tial payment plan while we go through a difficult time." The bulk of about 40 letters sent to Lethbridge ilP Deane Gundlock recently decrying the program came from the War- ner area. However, a resolution at the meeting snowing 1 a c k of sup- port for Operation was car- ried by a small vote of about 15 to 5. The session touched on farmers' contentions (hat the Canadian wheat board had and that Vancouver longshoremen's shown poor salesmanship strikes occurred too often. "Everytime we get an order for wheat to go out of the west coast, there's a strike in Van- one man said. 1 There was also a' suggestion that bow wheat board should the Uws of busi- ness, and be fired if their pre- dictions proved faulty.

"Since the board is not sell- ing as much wheat as it used lo, wiry not get rid of some of the one man sug- gested. "If they're not selling as much wheat, maybe we need to hire more Mr. Ol- son.

He said the effects couH be 'drastic" because of the area that most school boards wil likely select lo make budge cuts, and there is not suffitien time lo allow proper evalua tion of priorities. Mr. Stonehocker said he fear ed that important- long-term needs wouM be the first item to be cut, since their deletion would have lillle immediate e feet. He told more than 450 dele- gates to the assembly that th. ATA had approached the Al berta School Trustees' Associ lion to suggest a joint submis si on concerning tie new Schoc Act to the government, but t] ASTA refused. Mr. Stonehocker also protest- ed "most strongly the recent actions of the federal govern- ment in trying again to include teachers under unemployment insurance legislation. "This action would add a suable amount to school board budgets and be a cost lo teach- ers without providing them airy additional services or signifi- cant benefits." Federal Labor Minister Bryce Mackasey plans to pres- ent a White Paper lo parlia- ment soon which will likely pell out ways to revamp the ational unemployment insur- nce commission's programs.

In this case, he would not be eligible for the conversion payment. Art Kalau of Milk River, said after the meeting, "Someone in the federal government, I for- get who, told us to produce as much wheat as we could and it would be so'.d. 'So some farmers went tnlo stubble seeding. This produced lower protein content, which meant the wheat couldn't .be used for the new milling pro- cess. 1 "So we lost markets, and now everyone is paying for it." Mr. Kalau's written submis- sion, which was not dealt with at the meeting, suggested the 50-50 fanner (half in summer- fallow and half in crops) in 1971 would be to sell fewer bush- els than the farmer who had lion's current regulations were unfair to teachers.
