Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 13, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, 1J. WO IKE IETHBBIOCE HtKAlD Bruce Hiitckisw, author and editorial director of the Van- couver Sun, was honored in Vancouver at a testimonial din- ner marking his 52nd anniver- sary as an active journalist. His record of achievement is without parallel in the history of Canadian journalism said Sun publisher Stuart Keale in pay- ing tribute to Mr. Hutchison, 69, who started his career as 2 sports writer with the Victoria Tiroes aod then switched to po- litical reporting. A water color painting of Lake Covdchan, a Vancouver Is- land area familiar to Mr. Hut- chison, was presented by Chief Justice J. 0. Wilson of the Su- preme Court of B.C. It was done by Victoria artist Brian Travers-Smith. Dinner guests included for- 'mer prime minister Lester Pearson, publishers, editors businessmen. Editorials and columns repre- sent only a fraction of Mr. Hut- chison's output. "Assaulting his old typewrit- er with jack hammer he never ceased to amaze us with Ite volume of his copy, naf of its Mr. Keate said. He has written nine books, in- cluding The Unknown Country, The Incredible Canad i a n and Canada: Tomorrow's winners of the Governor Gen- erafs Award.

CABINET IS SOLID' Mr. Drury said a moment ater 'hat "the cabinet is solid." There have besn reports that Postmaster General Eric Kier- ans and Labor Minister Bryce Mackasey have been at odds over the postal dispute. The comment on Mr. Hender- son came after a reference to the auditor-general's comment, "1 wonder myself whether in report last month, that the cabinet has limited the scope and effectiveness of his work as watchdog of public spending by reducing his staff "level authorized by creases i 50-per-cenl reduction ght there in the financial dis ict among those who didn' ke him seriously last year.

Canada already has bushels of hard red spring wheat on band. World stocks are high and the export market for the neit few years is not expected to exceed bushels year, Mr. Carmkhael says. The normal yield from acres would be enough for a year's domestic and export sales so the surplus would remain. Oats, already down lo 66 cents a bushel and with a hushel carryover, will bring even lower prices and the sur- plus will increase unless farm- ers use much of it as green feed, Mr. Carmichael reported. A reduction to acres from last year's acres was what the agriculture de- partment had hoped for. CORN PRODUCTION UP A carryover of bushels o< barley last year put pressure on prices and any increase in production this year will further depress prices, the report said. Barley would also have to com- pete with increased corn pro- duction in Canada and the United Slates.
