Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J2 THf LETHMIDGE HHAID f.brvory 17, 1971 II. A. OLSON Crop bill passed OTTAWA (CP) The Com- m o n s agriculture committee today suspended its normal cut- and-thrust debating session to pass a bill to amend the Crop Insurance Act. The bill, designed to crop insurance by permitting insurance against loss when planting or seeding is prevent- ed by "excess ground mois- tures, weather or other agri- cultural now returns to the Commons for final read- ing. Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson told the committee the wider insurance provisions will bring economic benefits not only to farmers "but to all of those with whom he deals and the very community within which he lives." Under the legislation, if a crop could not be seeded the in- surance would cover 80 per cent of the cost of summerfal- lowing, cultivating and fertiliz- ing the land, purchasing plants for transplanting and other preparation for seeding or planting a crop. It recognizes, Mr. Olson said, other losses than straight crop failure. "Such losses could include in- vestments made both in the previous fall as well as prior to seeding in the spring." W. R. Bird, director of the crop insurance program, was asked by committee members why there had been such a de- crease in the amount of gov- ernment insurance carried1 by farmers in recent years. Mr. Bird said a number a farmers feel they can protect themselves against any disaS' ters that come along. Others more diversified, "take up the slack" of a loss in one crop through1 other aspects of their operations. Others felt the in surance program, although 25 per cent of the premium is paid by the government, costs too much. But the main reason the in surance program had not ex panded was the number o good growing years in the las decade. "Insurance sells a lot mori easily after you've had a disas ter."

Some 600 warriors clashed near Lusikisiki Friday nigM, and police said 24 were killed. They were uncertain of the cause of the fighting but said it might have started because of a disagreement over livestock grazing. In another skirmish Sunday at Xgquc'.eni, 17 miles ID the'cast, four more persons ucro killed.
