Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 20, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta SATURDAY, APRIL 20, 1946 ILFA President Joins In Protest To Increase Farm Machinery Prices In statement on the sapping of farm machinery- prices, Pres. Geo. B. Church of the C.F.A-. says: "la coaorcon with other farm or- ganizations across Canada. United Kanaers of Alberta emphatically process the recently announced in- crease of 12 per cent m the price of farm machinery nroducis- It is doubtful if assy government aa- coiascement sicee the is-ar began has been as and deeply re- sented by farmers. There are two reasons %hy this increase in price affects farmers so senousiy. "In the first place, during the long period from 1930 to 1939, the low pnces for farm products pre- i eased farmers from undertaking the usual farm machinerv replace- ment progress, with the result that throughout the praines a. huge backlog of machinery replacement had developed. During the war a supply far beloxr the demand. so Western fanners still face a huee but urgent program of machinery replacement. The increased price will, therefore, affect them very seriously, as in roanv cases replace- ments cannot, be postponed. The farmer does resent the fact that he is being urged to increase his pro- duction on the one hand, while on the other the ccst of necessary osa- ichjuery is so greatly increased. "In the second place the fanner is aware that since the 1945 crop year was commenced Canadian wheat has been sold under merit direction at some forty cents per bushel less than the prevailing world price. Believing it to be m the national interest the farmer has made 320 protest, although he 'has known that he has been mak- txog a durec: and personal contribu- tion to the peoole of England and I Europe beyond what, other classes fin the community are making. He Shad hoped that this contribution would have led to seme ultimate beneficial result to the industry. He now finds that in addition to shar- ling the prevailing increase in cos' !of living, and increased labor and gas cost, he must cow also face a definite increase in. the pnca of much needed machinary replace- meats. I "Unless some oojicv is announced by the government in the near fu- jture which will relieve the fanner iirora this new burden a widespread Tand general demand for increased pnces of farm products is inera- 1 NEW RATES OF PAY IN AIR FORCE PROVING ATTRACTIVE "The new rates cf pay for the regular Air Force announced recent- ly by Ottawa should provide a defi- nite spar to our current ground crew recruiting campaign."

The general reaction of all ranks at Jfo. 2 Air Command ters to the new rates has been pnt of enthusiaism. The Air Officer Commanding, Air Vice-Marshal K. M.
