"It's a says James E. Walker chairman of the committee which win tackle the problem. No one has calculated the hours spent on tfiese proposed motions, but since the session began Jan. 4, there have been about 150 proposed. And only six have been of them non-controversial, if not harmless. One of the accepted motions congratulated Karen Magnussen on winning the world's figure skating championship, another thanked retiring Auditor-Gen- eral Maxwell Henderson for his loyal service, and another ap- proved tiie unfurling of the Ca nadian flag in the Commons. There were two referring de- partmental reports to com mittees, and another calling on crown housing agencies not to raise rents in line in- creases in old-age pensions. But the motions not accepted have covered everything from the Atlantic fishery to West Coast wharves. And practically everything in between has been mentioned.

Now, in joining the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) this week, the Chinese are putting some of the world's oldest plant re- sources and some of the most enterprising farming methods at the disposal of the inter- national community. Oranges came from China, only later flourishing in other tropical and sub-tropical Mediterranean countries. And because agriculture as an or- ganized activity seems to have begun earlier in China than anywhere else, a number of ether distinctive plant strains also originated there. But there is another side to Chinese agriculture which FAO officials look on with farm system capable of ade- quately feeding i population of 750 million. When the Chinese flag went up outside FAO headquarters near the Colosseum Monday, the Chinese were technically re- joining the UN agency after a 22-year absence from the organ- ization, whose aim is to help the world's poor countries feed themselves. Taiwan, one of FAQs' founder members, withdrew in 1951, ap- parently through lack of inter- est. China's "return" was made possible by the United Nations General Assembly 1971 resolu- tion recognizing the Peking gov- ernment as the sole legitimate representative of China. For some years, scientist ex- plorers have been combine re- mote areas of the world for FAO in an effort to track down specimens of wild crop varieties before t hey are displaced by new, higher-yielding varieties and possibly disappear forever.
