Mr. Babey was president of the FUA for six years before being elected Unifarm presi- dent. Mr. Lea served on the Farmers Union executive three years before becoming vice- president during the three years before the merger. Mr. Babey said both candi- dates were able men but the delegates had made an "intel- ligent" decision in electing the vice-president to take over from him. No vote count was announced alter the 500 delegates had cast their ballots during the second day of the organization's four- day meeting which ends Fri- day. new vice-presi- dents will be held today.

Delegates also voted to make provision for the admission of a section to be known as Wom- en of Unifarm. A resolution asking the ad- mission followed a November meeting of the Farm Women's Union of Alberta at which the members voted almost unani- mously that they desired to be- come part of the new organiza- tion.

December 12 and. 13 PREBCo RECREATION VEHICLES WINDSOR, Ont. (CP) The food comes in hot from a cater tag company, the Christmas trees are up and there are church services among the lino- type machines in the composing room of The Star, Windsor's only daily newspaper. The presses, however, are cold and result of a sit-down strike by three crafl unions that has prevented The Star from hitting the streei since last Wednesday. It's a sit-in with a few unique wrinkles. The catering truck pulls up to The Star three times a day, de- livering breakfast, lunch and dinner to the 75 men occupying the composing room. The deliv- eries have the approval of the company. Wives and children visit dally and chat with their husbands and fathers through open ground-floor wuidows, and cler- gymen quote the Bible from the floor of the composing room at in-plant services for the union men. Freedomites acquitted NELSON, B.C. (CP) Pro- vincial Judge William Evans Wednesday dismissed charges against five Sons of Freedom Doukhobor women that they en- tered a house with intent to commit an indictable offence. Judge Evans said there was some doubt in his mind of the intentions of the five ori- ginally charged with threaten- ing to burn the home of Free- domite leader Stefan Sorokin's wife at Krestova, in the West Kootenay region. Both sides remained rlgic today in the sit-in and suspen- sion of publication by The Star, now in its second week. The un- ions insist on completion of a new collective agreement before the men leave the plant. But Star publisher Mark Far- reil is equally firm on his com- pany's new talks until the composing room decks are cleared by the union men, along with their sleeping bags, air mattresses, blankets, books and cards.

The traditional one week's pay as a Christmas bonus had earlier been chopped For most of the men for wha Mr. Farrell described as har- assment tactics during bargain- ing. About 170 of the newspaper's 400 employees are represented the unions, whose contracts expired Feb. 28. Non-union em- ployees continued to report for work during the shutdown and Ihere have teen no layoffs. Negotiations between The Star and the craft unions broke down Dec. 1 over wages, vaca- ions and wording of a new con- ract. The unions have been in a egal position to 'strike since lov. 23, but no picket lines have been set up.

The decision followed com pany accusations of deliberat union slowdowns.

Management capabilities lagging Smith CALGARY (CP) Canada' management elite may not be as elite as it appears, chairman A. J. R. Smith of the Economi Council of Canada said Wednes day. In several areas, Canadian business and industry lack thi specialization found in the United States, he said, and this could be contributing to Can ada's slow rate of economic growth. "When it comes to competenl management, there is quite a ;ap between the educationa !evels of U.S. management am hose of Canadian management "In fact, looking at educa- Jonal differences between the AVO countries, the gap is proba- bly wider for management than for any other occupation. "This may be just one clue as a why Canadian industry may not be as efficient as that of the Jnited States. The point here is that we do need to place more emphasis on the importance Oi good management and the de- velopment of good men." HUGE SHIPMENT PRINCE RUPERT, B.C.

The tests during the next 11 days are intended to discover whether Honda's tiny N-360 compact contains structural de- fects liable to cause accidents. The company president, So- ichiro Honda, is named in a murder indictment brought by the father of a young driver killed in a N-360 accident. A consumers organization al- leged in September that struc- tural defects in the four-seat ve- hicle were responsible for at least 35 crash deaths. The Japan Automobile Users' Union claimed that at speeds over 30 miles an hour the car tended to become uncontrollable on a slope if the brakes were sud- denly applied. their Import until domestic slocks ore exhausted. The convention also called for continuation of the wheat board policy of announcing each year, in advance, the level of quotas which will be ac- cepted from producers. However, elevators should accept only those dch'veries needed lo meet domestic and export sales, and if by the end of a crop year the announced quotas have not been reached, the br.lsrice should be accepted by the board, and kept in seal- ed bins. Delegates also approved a policy paper on fruits and vegetables, calling for "more stringent and rapid research on the danger of chemicals" and a prohibition on the im- port of fruits and vegetables which have been subjected to pesticides prohibited in Can- ada.
