This time the subject of hca -ed questioning is the grain handling and travsportation rationalization slidy. Opoositioi members feel Mr. Lang is being far loo qu. about it. The wheat Ixiard minister says he doesn't want to conduct the various stages of the study in the public arena. The feeling is that the subject would become far too controversial if every little passing comment or suggestion was allowed to be discussed or attacked piecemeal. Opposition critics, especially those from farm ridings, feel that something shady is going on. Foremost in theL minds is the suspicion that the government is going to streamline the grain handling and transportation system without regard to the farmers' needs and conveniences, or that a deal is gomg to be made that will allow the railroads to carry out a plan of wholesale abandonment of elevator and small community branchlines. Mr. Lang, member for Sask-atoon-Humboldt, has denied collusion with anyone. He says the government has no master plan for radically changing the grain handling and transportation system. And he has said nothing whatever will be done unless it brings obvious advantages to the farmer. But Mr. Lang's assurances mean nothing to people such as Saskatchewan MPs John Ko-berg (NDP Moose John Bui-ton (NDP Regina East) and to a lesser extent some Progressive Conservative m e m-bers from the west. They have been demanding to know what exactly is going on. Only this week, Mr. Skoberg anj Mr. Burton tackled the wheat board minister in the Commons, demanding to know when MPs and farmers would receive copies of the studies. Thsy say that if provincial government officials and railroad company executives can see the confidential documents then surely the farmer has the right to take a look. Mr, Lang has refused to release the documents. And lie has had some sharp words to say about people like Mr. Skoberg who hs says introduces distortions into his comments lo the point of irresponsibility. The wheat board minister says his aim is to avoid conflict and petty politics and lo work quietly with various parties for the good of the farmer. Nevertheless, there already is considerable controversy deve -oping over what will be the end results of the study. It is being co-ordinated by the organization set up by the wheat board minister in 1969 to help him get at a number of problems facing the grain industry in Canada. The idea behind the study or scries of studies, as Mr. Lang's departmenl describes them is to assess whether the west's grain handling and transportation facilities are working as efficiently and as economically as possible and what if anything is needed to make sure future needs will be met. To this end a number of investigations have been launched. Railraod company officials have been questioned; so have executives of elevator companies. Farm organizations representatives have been asked for their ttack by w The first tack of thoroughly compiled studies have been released to the railroads, industry representatives a.nd provincia government officials. A spokesman for the grains group who is involved in the study program is careful to stress that none of the reports contain direct recommendations on major changes. He prefers to say they contain "cost analysis" figures on just what people arc getting for their money under Ihe present system and what tlrey might get for it with different methods in force. What is pretty obvious from the studies is that everyone including the farmer would be much better off with a more streamlined and concentrated system. Basically, this means the railroads should be able to tear up many of their branch lines and many if tho smaller elevalor poinls should be closed clown in favor of larger inland terminals. But no one will confirm this. Some elevator and wheat pool officials in the west have ad-milted confidentially and some times not so confidentially that the current system of small community elevators must change. Some farm organizations have been quite "bullish' in their comments about the need for change. But then again, some provincial government officals, such as Ihose in Saskalchewan, have voiced slrong protests against mass closure of branch line and elevators and stressed their determination to see the MPs survival of the smaller community. Ciuuiges mil obviously come but Mr. Lang, still vary after the reaction received by his prairie grains stabilization plan, isn't likely to try to force their., in fact, lie has insisted that the most he will do is to let everyone farm organizations, the grain industry, railroads, provincial governments look at the studies and make their recommendations if Ihey want. Then, if Ihcre is a general agreement that there really is need for a change, his depart ment just might "consider" helping the various fragments to coordinate that change. But above all, Mr. Lang and lis department have stressed, any changes at all must result in direct benefits of one sort or another In the farmer. There can be no changes just to please the railroads or just to please the elevator companies. In fact, to make sure the farmers are taken into full consideration one study currently under way even tries to assess the social impact on the farmers' lives of any changes. It will probably be some months before details of the studies are officially released. Nothing the opposition can do will make Mr. Lang chsnge his mind. And no matter what is said bout the studies containing no actual recommendations, the final report is bound to strike some people as being dynamite. However, thai particular blast could turn out to be for the good of everyone especially the farmers.

The Auguste Piccard, buiil in Switzerland for famed ocsanog-rapher Dr. Jacques Piccard, was acquired" by Hyco Mari-ime Explorations Ltd. of North Vancouver. It has arrived aboard a freighter and will be refitted before undergoing tests, Don Morecornbe. a New York engineer and general manager of Hyco, says. "We must firsl demonstrate its he said, "we hope to use it commercially eventually in offshore exploration work for minerals and oil. "It also holds possibilities for salvage work." Tli3 submarine is designed to reach a depth of feet and is driven by electric batteries which require outside charging. Mr. Morecornbe said he believes it is (lie largest civilian submarine in the world. It has room for 40 passenger in airplane-style accommodation. Premier W. A. C. Bennett commented on the uses of such submarines when he met Dr. Piccard in 1987 in Miami, where the scientist wras dem- robe onstrating a similar submarine. "It is ray belief that B.C. may and has, greater resources on the continental than sire has above the water the premier said at the time.

FORSIER JFORSTER AGENCY ban upheld BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Erie County's law banning the sale and use of phosphate detergents as of Jan. 1 was upheld in state Supreme Court here. Denying Colgate-Palmolive Co. an injunction against enforcement of (lie statute, Justice Joseph F. Kuszynsto ruled there was no evidence to suggest that str.te legislators wanted to overturn the county law when they passed a similar statewide ban that will not take effect until June 1, 1973. The county legislature passed a law last March containing a two-stage restriction on phosphates. The first phase of the law banned as of April 30 detergents containing more than 8.7 per cent phosphate. The second phase, scheduled for the new year, bans phosphate detergents entirely. Tile judge also ruled the county law does not interfere with interstate commerce, as the soap company charged, since it "involves nothing more than the changing of producion facilities at the point of origin." He added "the fact that the other detergent supplies will he able U> comply is indicative of the fact that the burden im-wsed is not an unreasonable one."

J. A. Rliind, first vice-president of the Canadian Life Insurance Association says in his year-end report and forecast. Sales went to SIB. 11 billion this year from SM.2-17 billion in 1970, and Jlr. Hhind's report credits the rise in large part to the increase in group life insurance sales. While final figures arc not yet abulaled. group life insurance sales were estimated to be S7.5 billion, up -10 per cent over the figure of S5.22.1 billion. Individual policy sales increased by three per cent to billion in 1971 fro m last year's figure of billion. the reasons for this large increase in group sales are not clear, Mr. Rbind says nib seems to be part of a continuing trend by unions, professional associations and employers to improve workers' benefits. As a result of these record sales, the amount of life insurance in force per household increased to about in 1971 from in in polls PARIS (Renter) President Georges Pompidou's popularity has dropped slightly in the last month despite the boost to his prestige following his Azores summit meeting with President Nixon, a public opinion poll shows.
