OTTAWA Dairy who receive annual subsidies of about have been granted an additional subsidy for each hundred pounds of manufacturing milk they sell under measures an- nounced Tuesday by Agricul- ture Minister Eugene Whelan. The increase goes into effect and will come about by a temporary increase of 56 cents for each 3CO pounds of manufac- turing milk together with a three-cent-a-pound increase in the guaranteed price for skim milk powder and a 20cent-per- hundredweight reduction in a levy collected from dairy farm- ers to offset costs of selling powdered milk on export mar- kets. Mr. Whelan said in a news re- lease that the action not increase the cost of milk prod- ucts to the It was taken because of a wet spring that hurt dairy farmers and the unusually high cost of feed grain and protein used to keep dairy content. At the end of March this the government increased i subsidies to dairy farmers by I about 60 cents for each 100 I pounds by increasing the guar- or price for butter to 71 cents a pound from 68 for cheddar cheese to 60 from 54 cents and for skim milk powder to 35 from 29 cents a pound. These are the products made from manufacturing grade milk. At the same the government increased by 20 cents to the direct subsidy it paid farmers. accine tested for lung cancer By JEFF CARRUTHERS 1 Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA the wide- ly-used anti-TB is being given a chance 1o prove its worth as an anti-cancer treatment starting this summer in hospitals all across Canada. The Canadian Cancer He- search Co-ordinating Com- recently established by the federal has just launched a two-year test ol the effectiveness of BCG against operable lung cancers. OirBesl Your Best t ow rnwioirtiY I MIKTIDSOUKu Everyday Hil 70-010 KNITE GAL DEEP AND ACCENT J5.98 I In the wings are two more i clinical trials involving I one expected to start this pitting BCG against cancer of the lymph a ex- pected to start next in- volving cancer of the colon And there may be more after thai. 1 All in the BCG trials cost about per I year and last two years each. And cancer experts hope it will prove or disprove recent claims that BCG is effective in treating and controlling certain types of including skin cancer and leukemia. The first just started in involves surgical teams in hospitals and universities from Newfoundland to British Colum- bia. By the end of the some 100 patients will have been given BCG starting five days after surgery to remove lung cancer tumor and lasting for 18 months or until the lung cancer reappears. Another 100 patients will re- ceive all the treatment but the BCG. Dr. H. E. director of the Medical Research Council's awards program and a co-or- dinator of the BCG ex- plained Tuesday that the clini- cal trials will test the theory that BCG vaccine can stimulate the body's cell-mediated im- m u n e lym- attack and control certain types of cancerous cells. Dr. Taylor has cautioned that there is a danger that launching this type of a study might unduly raise the hopes or terminal cancer patients. the there is no firm scientific evidence that BCG is of any help in treating anything but some types of skin he said. The lung cancer trial involves surgical teams at the Univer- sitv of Manitoba in Winnineg and at the University of British Columbia in as well as in Mon- Ham- ilton. and St. Nfld. OTTAWA Negotiators have broken a stalemate in Canada-U.S. air talks by agree- ing on new routes for airlines in the two countries. before the latest round of broke up informed sources said two im- portant side-issues have to be settled before a new agreement is signed. These are the simmering con- flict over U.S. customs pre- clearance in Canadian airports and American attempts to loosen certain Canadian air charter rules. Officials on the two negotiat- ing teams were still maintain- ins a tight-lipped silence on de- tails of the agreement Tuesday afternoon. They said a confer- ence-ending communique would not be issued. At least one more probably in will be required to clear up the remain- ing issues. The fact that a final agree- ment has not been reached may force the Canadian to give way in its Sept. 10 dead- line for winding up pre- clearance. Details of the air routes agreement have not been an- nounced but Transport Minister Jean Marchand has said the government is pushing strongly for new routes for Canadian air- lines between Vancouver and Los Angeles and Winnipeg and Chicago. WANTS NEW ROUTES Canada is also understood to be keen about routes to U.S. centres from Calgary and Ed- monton. The U.S. has been asking for a Chicago-Montreal a de- mand left over from the last bi- lateral air talks. Washington also wants a stop- 1 over in Canada for flights to Alaska from other in the i continental U.S. j Another possibility is Van- couver-Honolulu. a route now i travelled exclusively by CP Air. The preclearaace issue led to an open break in April when Mr Marchand announced the system would be stopped in Canada. Customs preclearances allows passengers flying to I U.S. citiec from Canadian airports to avoid trudging through customs at their desti- nation. The transport minister said the system was a significant economic aid to U.S. airlines but harmed Canadian carriers. He said the government would be willing to continue preclearance if passengers fly- ing to Canadian cities from the U.S. could get the same treat- ment. The U.S. is trying to get added benefits for American carriers competing in the Cana- dian air charter market. Washington wants changes in the Canadian inclusive tour charter rule which permits American carriers to fly only one Canadian-based group 'o the U.S. in exchange for one group from the U.S. to Canada.
