18 THE LETHBMOOE HERALD Wvdriaeday, February 5, 1975 Farmers cheques in mail WINNIPEG (CP) The Canadian Wheat Board Wednesday began mailing out more than million worth of adjustments payments to prairie grain producers. The payments are be- ing sent to farmers who delivered wheat, oats and barley to the board between Aug. 1 and Nov. 24, when initial payments were increased. The adjustment payments will amount to a bushel for No. 1 Canada western red spring wheat, a bushel for No. 1 amber, cents a bushel for No. 2 C.W. 6- row barley and 10-cents a bushel of No. 2 C.W. oats. These rates represent the difference between the board's original and revised initial prices for the 1974-1975 crop year. Smaller payments are being made for some lower and off-grades of these grains. The board estimated Tuesday that the mail- ing of adjustment payments would take about a week to com- plete. Separate cheques are being mailed for wheat, oats and barley deliveries, but most of the money involved is for wheat deliveries prior to the rise in initial prices. Gov't coffers enriched EDMONTON (CP) The Alberta government's first major quarterly crown reserve sale in 1975 has yield- ed some million less than the first sale in 1974. Oil companies bidding for oil and gas leases paid a total of million for 152 parcels, ranging in size from 160 to 640 acres. The provincial depart- ment of mines and minerals rejected offers on 58 other parcels put up for tender. The comparable quarterly sate in January, 1974, resulted in government revenues of million. The quarterly sales in May and August each exceeded million, but in Oc- tober the accepted bids totall- ed, only million for 140 parcels. Several factors have been suggested by industry sources as reasons for the reduction in oil industry spending. The most important is probably the federal -government's decision to not allow oil com- panies to deduct royalty payments to provincial governments from federal in- come taxes: The general uncertainty caused by federal provincial conflict over resource revenues has also affected oil industry spending, while increased federal taxes have reduced the funds that oil companies have to spend. Portable humidifiers recalled HAMILTON (CP) West- inghouse Canada Ltd. an- nounced Tuesday that it has recalled about portable humidifiers because wire- mesh screens were not install- ed on the back of the units. A Westinghouse spokesman said the humidifiers have been released from the com- pany's Ont., plant for sale since last September. The model number of the machines is HO 327. The spokesman said the hu- midifiers are not considered dangerous because louvered back panels prevent easy ac- cess to the fan blades. He said the screens will provide more protection. Persons who have bought the machines may have them replaced by returning them to Westinghouse dealers, the spokesman said. English Shoe From "The" Fashion Centre... Quality Leather for Men D B A.
