The population of the prosper- ous and basically conservative state of Baden-Wnertlemberg is voting nominally to elect a new state government. But because the southwestern state holds the key to tlie pre- carious balance of power In tha Bonn federal parliament, its voles could determine the fate of Brandt's left-liberal coalition. Tlie Germans will be taking part in what is virtually a refer- endum on Brandt's "Ostpolitlk." Sunday's elections fall only two weeks before a vital ratifi- cation debate in ttio Bonn par- liament on Brandt's treaties of reconciliation with the Soviet Union and Poland. workers CALGARY BLAZE Lethbridge Herald photocrcphe- Ed Finlay made this dramatic photograph of t'ne Calaary bla ze.

Harry Rensby, Information Officer Dept. of Education Comunications Edmonton o EDMONTON (CP) A bill designed to preserve the fam- ily farm, by protecting it from large corporations, wras duced in the Alberta legisla- ture by Grant Notley, leader of the New Democratic Party. The Corporate Farming Act proposed by Mr. Notley, the member for Spirit River-Fair- view, would prohibit corpora- tions, both foreign and domes- tic, from engaging in farming. The act would require corpor- tions, which now hold farm land, to dispose of it by 1975. ff a corporation refused to com- ply, the land would be sold by the government with the pro- ceeds retained by the province. Family farm corporations would iw exempt if 80 per cent of their income was derived from agricultural activities and co-operative corporations be exempt if BO per cenl of their members dependec principally on agriculture foi their livelihood. I Mr. Notley said the act Is I patterned on legislation now it effect in several of the Unitec States, especially South Dako- [ta, and is the first comprehen- sive piece of legislation lo pro- hibit corporate takeover of ag- riculture ever introduced into a Canadian legislature or par- liament. Mr. Xotley's bill stands little chance of passage in the legis- lature, where 49 of 75 seals are held by the Progressive Conser- vative party and 25 by the So- k-ial Credit Party.

An amendment now before the legislature would extend the act provisions to cover all wine and liquor bottles, -is well as im- ported beer bottles. A petition on behalf of the 95 people who were laid off at the Dominion Glass Plant in was presented to the legislature by Bill (SC- Medicine Hat-Redcliffl.
