He said that these elements Gas Company Earnings Lower CALGARY (CP) Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. Ltd. earned or a share during the six months ended June 30, compared with or 51.27 a share a year earlier.

Agnew conferred with the Thai leaders for more than two hours today. One point ttey made was that Thailand would want financial aid in return for Fescue Farmers Stop Picketing GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) Fescue-producing farmers are [oing to stop picketing grain elevators and seed plants, the National Farmers Union said idday. The farmers had been boy- cotting the delivery of fescue seed to plants in an attempt to raise the price of the seed from about 15 cents to 27 cents a pound. Tile picketing will be stopped but the farmers will continue to hold back their seed until the price is right, a spokesman said. "We want to sit at the nego- tiating table and bargain for the price of fescue." sending troops or other sssis ance to Cambodia. The disclosure came one d after an announcement from t U.S. state department that Tha land plans to withdraw all most of its fore from South Vietnam. Agnew arrived in Bangki Friday on the last stop of five-country tour through Asi He returns to the United Stat Sunday. Today's schedule called Hie nee-president to meet wi a number of Thai officials an call on King Bhumibol. Agnew's talks with Premi Thanom Kittakaehorn, Foreig Minister Thant Khoman ar other Thai leaders took pla< against a backdrop of increa ing congressional reluctance underwrite "third-nation" ops ations in Cambodia. Such financing is a come stone of the Nixon Doctrine, th U.S. policy of aiding non-Com munist countries in Asia whi avoiding, as Agnew put it Fi day after visiting Cambodia, coming "militarily involved." Thailand, already the bene: clary of some million a yea in U.S. assistance for havin troops in Vietnam, has mac clear that it would want eithe direct or indirect U.S. imde writing of any aid to Cambodi The Nixon administration ha indicated it would provide th undenvriting. But war-related moves no under way in the U.S. Congres. include one that would curta U.S. payments to southern lied troops fighting in Vietnam Two days before Agnew ar rived in Bangkok, the Thai gov ernment announced that wants to withdraw "as many a possible" of its forces from South Vietnam. Kirtikaehorn said the situation in Thailant Laos and Cambodia is gettin more tense and that Thailan needs its "battle-tested" troop to protect its own frontiers.

OTTAWA (CP1 The Cana- dian Congress on Evangelism ended Friday night wiiii a tradi- tional evangelistic rally on the grounds of the Supreme Court building. Organizers wronged it as a united witness, by more than SCO delegates -from 34 Protestant denomination's, of their faith in Jesus Christ. But the study conference was not a week of unruffled calm. Many young delegates were frustrated at the way the con- giess was being conducted and demanded more open discus- sion. This led to a bear-pit session with several of the leading speakers. It ended in an emo- tional debate on the Cliristian attitude towards war. The war debate stowed that Protestant evangelicals ore be- coming more concerned with so- cial issues. But if took two days for this fact to rise to the sur face. Dr. Hendrik Hart, a philoso- phy lecturer from the Institute of Christian Studies in Toronto, said some of the speeches put the "stamp of approval on our comfort, which shouldn't be happening."

Eleven forest fires were burning in Alberta, all under control except one large fire in the Northern Bow Hiver Forest in southwestern Alberta, which was under partial control. That fee was being fought by 275 men, 20 tractors and 15 air- craft.

Complete closure still re- mained in those areas.

(CP) Farmyard. controversy has veloped in the Rolling countrj side of northern Nova Scoti over a proposal by a U.S. co sortium to go into massive be production in this area. "If it could have been done, would have been done long ag Nova says fanner who says regular fee crop failures caused by weath makes cattle-raising in norther Nova Scotia "a, very risky bus ness." However, the scheme has th full blessing of the Nova Scot agriculture department. A big part of the proposed million project would be nanced by a loan from the No Scotia government, a not he cause of objections by loc farmer groups. The request for a millio loan from the provincial trea ury is under consideration Premier G. I. Smith's cabinet. The U.S. group is headed b Robert E. Brownell, who ope ates a farm in this area on th shore of Northumberland Stra 20 miles north of Amherst. The area was once a prospe ous farming district but, alon with much ofCumberlan County, agriculture has bee slipping here. In 1929 there were acres of improved land in th country. Today this has shrun to The U.S. developers say the will invest million of the own in the project, buy acres of generally unused Ian in the area and raise head of beef cattle a year in province which had to impor beef carcasses last year. The feeling among som farmers in northern Nova Sec !ia, extending from the New Brunswick border to the Stra of Canso, seems to be that if th provincial government can a ford large loans to agriculturf these should be available firs to native producers: Malagash Grain Ltd., a farm e r -o w n e d organization whie produces feed grain in an are Deputy Minister Resigns WINNIPEG (CP) Deputy transportation minister Law rence Blackman has resignet for "personal reaons" and gov eminent sources say more resignations may follow in th department. The sources said there is lack of harmony in the depart ment headed by Transportation Minister Joe Borowski. One source said the depart ment has been working to rule and efficiency and morale have suffered because of Mr. Borow ski's heandling of departmen affairs. The transportation minister was out of town today and was not available for comment. Mr. Blackman, appointee deputy minister in. April, 1969 oined the highways depart- ment in 1948 and was as sistant deputy minister for 10 yesrs. Congratulations to TOM TATOULIS New Manager of: PETRIE'S PANTRY CO-OP LTD. 51i 5th Avenua South about 3Q miles east of here, says the U.S. consortium's plan amounts to a "staggering" real estate deal because of rising land values in the area. As a "precedent" to the Northport plan, the Malagash directors said in a telegram of protest to Agriculture Minister Harvey Veniot, the government might recall the sale of Manhattan Is- land to the Americans for Mr. Veniot has said he per- sonally endorses the plan, and that a decision ori the loan would be made in "due course." Government sources indicated Thursday that word on the loan could come early next week. Mr. Veniot said the proposal appears sound, with the U.S. in- terests indicating that no profits would be paid to shareholders in any year before the provincial government is repaid with full interest. The minister says 20 Cumber- land County farmers were of- fered incentives to improve their beef herds, but "only five did anything worth while." One farmer said he was con- vinced the' scheme would fail because of crop failures. There were three such failures in the last 10 years and the cost of im- porting feed from Western Can- ada would venture. "kill" the Northport The war debute simply mads clear the dilemma Christiana face in tlie problem of war. On one side were the pacifists who said the teachings of Jesus speak out against violence. On the oilier side were those who said violence is "inscribed in our lives" and war might sometimes be necessary. Samuel Escobar, a Christian student worker in Latin Amer- ica, said evangelism and! social action must go together and the individual Christian must choose what tin's means, where he is. In some places it might mean taking positions on war, and in others it might mean social wel- fare work. Dr. Terry Winter, 27, a Chris- tian Brethren evangelist from Vancouver, said after the con- ference ended that the discus- sion on social issues shows that evangelicals are now concerned about these issues. But some delegates felt tfia conference should have been opened to such basic issues ear- lier. The conference was slow get- ting off the ground partly be- cause the delegates came from so many denominations, fre- quently walled off from each other by prejudices. Rev. Marney Patterson, con- gress executive secretary, said that Tuesday the congress exec- utive considered giving up workshops because they seemed to be getting nowhere. But this had changed the next day as people crossed denomi- national barriers and spoke to one another. Crux Faces Fraud Charge VANCOUVER (CP) Law- yer-financier A. G.
