Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 LETHBRIDOE HERALD Wednesday, February FARMER'S CLOD IMAGE BLAMED OTTAWA (CP) The image of a farmer as an overall-clad clod with dung on his boots and a sunburned neck has been at- tacked as a central cause behind the current farm labor shortage. A two-day farm labor conference sponsored by the Canadian Federation of Agriculture concluded Tuesday that more must be done to emphasize the glories of farm work. Charles MacOonald, a New Brunswick dairy farmer, told about 60 farm and government representatives at the meeting "So far as I'm concerned, she's a sick society that rates farming so low." Whatever the cause, delegates agreed that young people and laborers would be more readily attracted to farm work if it were not considered degrading manual labor. Efforts should be made to promote the advantages of clean air, privacy and healthful living inherent in farm life. The group also agreed that steps should be taken to extend such benefits as a 40-hour week, overtime and holidays to the farm work force. But farmers would have to be paid higher prices for their goods if they, in turn, were to pass on benefits to employees. Statistics Canada reported Tuesday that total cash receipts for farm operations reached a record billion last year, up from billion the year before, but the group tended to regard the recent increase in farm riches as little more than deserved after years of low prices. E M. Hutchinson of the federal manpower department said onp reason fanners were having difficulty attracting workers is the acute competition they face from other industries. The only two hired hands attending the meeting suggested other methods of keeping workers down on the farm. Don Runtz of Brockville, Ont, father of three and an employee on a dairy farm, said provision should be made by farmers to help their employees pay into pension funds and workmen's compensation. Bill Robertson, a married dairyman working on a Caledon East, Ont., farm, on the other hand, described himself as a happily employed employee. that's a dog to do?

Anti-abortion bills backed HELENA, Mont. (AP) Companion bills to allow doctors, nu-ses and medical technicians to refuse to participate in abortions or sterilizations were given unanimous tentative approval in the Montana Senate Monday. The measure guarantees medical personnel and hospital administrators the right to refuse to perform, assist or participate in the medical procedures. Both bills prohibit disciplinary action against those who refuse to participate in abortions or sterilizations. One supporter, Sen Archie Cochrane said they are part of a package of legislation aimed at making it possible, but difficult, to undergo an abortion in Montana Hunting fees to be raised HELENA, Mont. (AP) The Montana House gave tentative approval to a bill to increase the license fees charged out-of-state hunters It also would limit the number of non-residents allowed to hunt in Montana to a year.

In its verdict the jury said it felt that the case was handled satisfactorily but suggested a more thorough examination could be made in athletic accidents of a similar nature The cause of death was given as a fracture and collapse of a thyroid cartilage and laryngeal edema or swelling. The boy was struck in the throat by the stick of another player early in the game. The assistant coach of the Wetaskiwin team, Bob Bridger, and other witnesses agreed the boy was struck accidentally.
