His father was a Campbellford, Ont., machinist. Ed says he intends to remain a fanner but that there is little chance he will ever be able to afford his own oper- ation. Tom Broderick has the land his father got from his father. But to make a living he must expand. It is impossible to buy any around this community because many urban people buy up what's available, either in speculation of further price increases or to live on. "They can outbid a farmer any day." The land behind the Broderick farm, he says, is worth an acre as farmland. But the going rate for the land Tom wants to grow corn on is an acre. "As a subdivision it would be worth more, probably or To counter the trend, many municipal governments are restricting development on farmland, but many farmers say that even that is not enough Mr. Whelan says bluntly. "The sprawl has to stop, or we won't have farmers left, and we won't have any food." Farm receipts show good gain OTTAWA (CP) Statistics Canada reports that national gross farm receipts in January and February increased 51.6 per cent to million compared with the first two months of 1973. The total last year was million in January and February. Taking no account of ex- penses incurred in or marketing, the report says the totals include Canadian wheat board payments directly to farmers as well as the vari- ous government support programs. These payments above the direct income from farm sales amounted to million compared with million in the first two months of last year. Field crops, representing 52 per cent of cash receipts to farmers, returned million this year compared with million a year ago while livestock and livestock products produced million compared with million in January and February, 1973 Troops train on leper isle VICTORIA (CP) Once an exile for lepers, Bentinck Island's 112 acres of tangled arbutus and tall fir trees now serve as a playground for Canadian Armed Forces demolition crews. The 13 white crosses in the weed-choked cemetery and the dank, tumbledown buildings testify that the tiny island, 10 miles south of here, was once the home of those who came to die. The island was originally set aside as a lighthouse station but was later designated a leper colony and so used for 32 years until the last inhabitant died of old age in 1956. At one time the island had a total population of 22 but the colony became unnecessary with the development of sulfa drugs which made the treatment and cure of leprosy possible Like Bentinck, Eemdyk Channel, the narrow, kelp- tangled strip of water that separates it from Vancouver Island, has had its unhappier hours. Some years ago, 10 men drowned when the Dutch freighter Eemdyk sank in the channel in a fog. The forces have inherited the island and use it as a training ground for demolition crews who confine their activities to the rocky foreshore. The last resident on the island was a former patient, an elderly Chinese whose leprosy had been arrested, but who preferred to live out his days on the island. When he died the leprosarium was officially closed Introducing the 13 ft all fibreglass This Is your invitation to tie up with a real sweet- heart beautiful to look at round in the right places sexy and so affordable when you lay eyes on the 1974 Honey.
