Deadline for rapeseed ballot return extended OTTAWA Deadline for returning ballots in a cross-country poll of rapeseed producers has been extended to Jan. the Commons has been told. Otto minister respon- sible for the Wheat told Alf Cleave the deadline had been extended from Dec. 16 to accommodate late returns. The poll is to determine what kind of marketing system rapeseed producers want. They are being asked whether they want to retain the present open market system or whether they want to market rapeseed through the wheat board. About producers are eligible and a change would require a 60-per-cent ma- jority. Grain companies to cut country elevator operation Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON The con- tinued operation of country elevators has finally reached a says A. M. Run- ciman. president of United Gram Growers. In response to a question at the annual Unifarm Mr. Runciman said the problem of continuing opera- tion of hundreds of country elevators is starting to show through after coping with increased costs for years. He said the problem started emerging in 1958 and even ear- ly companies considered abandonment of elevators as a solution. The last abandonment of an elevator by UGG was in 1962 when 120 miles of rail line was pulled out oi operation. Since that the company has looked at spiraling operational costs through other eyes. Greatly increased amounts ol gram handled through country elevators since 1962 saved manv facilities because the per bushel cost of opera- tion was reduced. But now. with stored sur- pluses it appears as though Canada can't keep up high grain quantities. This means the grain- handling companies will have to try to retain good elevator maintaining delivery points that have an assured amount of grain for the future. PHASED OUT As delivery points become they will be phased out and the company will ex- pand to nearby centres to con- solidate their operations. This is essential because the farmers are paying the bill he said. The more economically successful the operation of the the better it will be for the farmers. During the past few UGG has constructed eight modern elevators in western Canada at strategic delivery points to assure continued ser- vice for farmers. Sask. offers to co-operate on oil price REGINA If the federal government wants Saskatchewan oil to be sold in Canada at less than its inter- national the Saskatchewan government will says Premier Allan Blakeney. Provincial co-operation would be forthcoming long as this is not done at the expense of the Saskatchewan taxpayer without full compensating benefits to Saskatchewan in sure that the tax- payers of Saskatchewan would be prepared to con- tribute to a national policy of keeping energy prices down all across Canada if Saskatchewan received con- crete and effective help in furthering our policies of es- tablishing secondary of stabilizing farm The premier made the remarks in a speech prepared for delivery on a province- wide radio and television hookup. In his the premier described the Oil and Gas Conservation Bill his govern- ment introduced in the provin- cial legislature Monday. The he would con- serve oil for future Saskatchewan give the people of the province the benefit of higher oil prices and encourage further development of Saskatchewan petroleum resources.
