Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 19, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Army worms battle almost over By Till! CANADIAN PRESS Most spray planes in Saskat- chewan had left for home or were on standby Wednesday as the fight to save valuable rapcseed crops from Bertha army worms appeared to be i' most over. Some spraying was continuing in areas with late crops and in districts where the worms havo reappeared recently. But acti- vity was nothing like last week when the hungry worms wero at their peak. About one-third of the prov- ince's 2.5 million acres of rape- seed was infested with the worms and acres have been sprayed with the highly- toxic chemical Innnate, a sub- stitute for DDT which has been banned. Total value of the Saskatche- wan rapeseed crop has been estimated at million. In the Tisdale-Arborfield dis- trict of north-central Saskatche- wan, farmers have written lo the federal and provincial gov- emmenls to express dissatisfac- tion with lannale, manufac- tured by DuPonl Corp. in Hous- ton, Tex. Tlie farmers said kills with the chemical were as low as 10 per cent in some areas and they feel that the government, wliich advised them to use lan- nate, should pay compensation. Unifarm, an Alberta farm or- Eolh the Saskatchewan and Alberta governments have ask- ed for federal assistance. Agriculture officials arc ad- vising farmers to keep close on their crops for at least another three weeks. The gamzation has asked Ottawa lo worms continue feeding into early September and another pay 25 per cent of the cost of spraying crops, Unifarm presi- dent Dobson Lea said famers should not be asked to bear Iho lotal cost since they couldn't use the less-expensive DDT and could not be expected to pass the costs on lo buyer's. Costs of buying and applying Ihe chemical have been be- tween 54 and an acre. Unofficial estimates indicate farmers in the major rapeseed growing area a 50-mile wide belt from Lloydrr.insler in west- central Saskatchewan to the Manitoba border have spent up to million on lannale and spray services. A report from Ottawa Wednesday said prospects for federal financial aid to farm- ers who have lost rapeseed crops were uncertain pending more complete information on damage. infcslalion could break out with little warning. There have been unconfirm- ed reports that a parasite of the worm, the lochina fly, has been found in Ihe Prince Albert area. The flies lay eggs on tho eventually die as the flies develop. Television imports protest criticized Thursday, Aunuil 19, 1971 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 19 AUTHORIZED BY: RICHARD BARTON CAMPAIGN ORGANIZATION OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian electronics indusliy was accused of behavior coming close lo hypocrisy before the anti-dumping tribunal Wednes- day. Speaking lor the Electronic Industries Association of Japan, lavvyer J. D. Richard suggested Hie Canadian industry perhaps has protested too hard to the tribunal that it has teen seri- ously hurt by dumped imports of Japanese television sets. "Canadian manufacturers were among the first importers of television sets from Japan arid they remain heavy import- era, yet they come to this tri- bunal complaining of he said. W. W. Buchanan, chairman o[ the tribunal, cautioned Mr. Richard that even through Ca- nadian manufacturers import sets, (his could not disqualify them from protests about dump- ing. Mr. Richard earlier refused to concede a customs department ruling that his clients exported sets to Canada last year at a price below their value in the home market. He added Wednesday that Canadian man- ufacturers come to the tribunal as complainants "yet they themselves are part of the cause of a situation in which they claim injury." The tribunal, which heard ar- guments after six days of testi- mony, is to decide if Canadian manufacturers have been hurt by the alleged dumping. Pending the decision, tempo- rary tariffs of up to 30 per cent have been imposed by the gov- ernment on Japanese television sets believed to be dumped. The custom department's rul- ing can only be challenged in the courts after the tribunal de- cides the case.
