However, revised estimates point to an increase demand of about 35 per cent. If it materializes, it could mean a short fall in the order of tons. Hugh Horner, minister of agriculture, Monday expressed concern over escalating farm input costs that could be aggravated by tight supply situations To alleviate this situation, prices of regularly formulated, bagged fertilizer for selected points within the province will be made public through Unifarm. The supply situation will also be monitored to help towards adequate distribution. Dr Horner said in a government statement the program should help overcome regional disparities that otherwise might occur both in price and supply. Farmers are invited to launch legitimate complaints concerning the fertilizer trade with Helmut Entrup, The Farmers' Advocate, Room 1101, Agriculture Building, 9718 107th St, Edmonton Their complaints will be brought to the attention of the trade.

The decision facing council is whether or not the city should set up its own convention association to do the job for it, or, presumably, whether to spend money for tha't purpose at all. A number of industrial land sales were given council approval Monday. Ritchfield Properties Ltd. was given permission to purchase 10.4 acres as a site for three multi-tenant multi- use warehouse buildings.

The original option was for five acres Relocation of the Iron Works plant from its downtown site is said to be dependent upon approval of a DREE grant. Eugene Welterlich Construction Ltd. will be offered options on three separate industrial park parcels for different industrial buildings.

When negotiations began, Romeo Mathieu, Canadian director of the CRAW, said negotiations with the meat packing industry would also have a direct effect on employees in independent packing plants across the country. The talks could also affect negotiations between unions and the retail supermarkets. Twelve thousand employees of major meat packers are involved. Mr. Mathieu said the companies are riding a profit crest and union members, who see their food costs increasing, would be seeking big wage increases.
