Asked not to cut barley, rapeseed crops Gov't to advise farmers on grain acreage Gov't taxes BONN (Reuter) - The West German government annouced Sunday tax increases and other, measures to reduce puchasing power in an effort to check a booming economy and hold down prices. An additional 10-per-cent surtax will be levied on West Germans with high incomes, numbering about 150,000 people, and on companies for one year, Finance Minister Helmut Schmidt and Economics Minister Hans Friderichs told a news conference. People earning over 100,000 marks (about $34,000) a year and couples with incomes of more than 200,000 marks (about $68,000) will be affected by this measure, which is expected to raise 2.4 billion marks (about $816 million) a year, the^ ministers said. Lower-paid workers were spared in view of the moderate wage increases the labor unions have aocepted so far this year, they said. The government hopes to limit consumer price rises in 1973 to between 5Vz and six per cent, about the same rate of inflation which West Germany recorded last year, the ministers said. With prices currently rising faster than this rate, the government hopes that at least the second half of this year will bring, some relief, leading to greater price stability in 1974. WINNIPEG (CP) - Grain farmers could beneficially plarat as many as 27 million acres of wheat this year as long as they don't cut production of other crops, particularly barley and rapeseed, Justice Minister Otto Lang said Saturday.

TORONTO AVERAGES 20 Industrials 225.29 up .18 20 Golds 218.36 up 1.10 10 Base Metals 101.66 off .15 15 W Oils 272.58 off .95 Volume 1,217,000 Mr. Lang, minister reponsi-ble for the Canadian Wheat Board told a morning news conference that the government would be advising farmiers of how many acres of different grain they should grow late this month. But he pointed out what he said were surprising statistics on returns for barley production. The average return to farmers during the last 10 years for barley seeded on summer-fallowed land was $36,99 an acre, two cents higher than the return for wheat. Barley returns were also higher than wheat returns when both crops were seeded on stubble. Mr. Lang, used tihese figures to back arguments for com-fctoued barley production. It should remain at least as high as last year's 14 or 15 million acres. Should barley acreage remain that high, farmers could increase wheat acreage over last year by as much as "five ,or six million acres." That ' would amount to about 27 million acres of wheat. There has been considerable controversy over just how much wheat should be planted this year. International demand has soared in the wake of world droughts, particularly in Russia. Prices, consequently, have risen to more than $2.60 a bushel, up $1 a bushel more than last year's prices. Mr. Lang said it was important, however, to keep acreage of other grains up as well to assure international customers of a continuing supply. Without .that supply, export m a rkets would dry up. There is also the danger, he has said in the past, that farmers could switch so heavily back to wheat production that it could lead to price-crippling surpluses like those two years ago. The wheat board minister used the news conference to outline features of a poll being B.C. auto insurance plan will cripple other firms VICTORIA (CP) - The chairman of the British Columbia "Advisory Committee of the Insurance Bureau of Canada says the New Democratic Party's auto insurance plan has "sounded the death-knell for the free enterprise car insurance industry in British Columbia." A. E. Warrick said the provincial government's plan will put many people in the auto insurance business out of work. U.S. takes risk WASHINGTON (CP) - Canada's decision to put crude-oil exports under control was a "dramatic illustration of the risks" the United States facss in relying on foreign energy supplies, an official of the Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) said Saturday. Executive Vice-President Minor S. Jameson recalled in a press release that the IPAA had been warning for years about the dangers of becoming dependent on foreign oil. The organization, representing mainly smaller producers, seeks tax and price changes that would make domestic oil production more atractive. "We hardly expected this danger would involve oil from the one country long considered our safest source,' Jameson said. "This illustrates The understandable tendency of all nations to take care of their own interests first, and makes clear that the U.S. can and should do likewise. . . Highways Minister Bob Stra-chan introduced in the legislature Friday legislation to establish B.C.'s first government-run auto insurance scheme on March 1, 1974. "Other companies operating under the free enterprise system, must view the announcement with alarm. If the government can confiscate an entire industry withhout any thought to the jobs of people or of compensation for loss of business they can just as easily move in on other industries, particularly those in the service business," Mr. Warwick said in a press release. He said the car insurance in? dustry will not give up entirely. "The NDP has been our critic for many many years. We will remain here as a critic for the government's scheme until competition is restored to British Columbia," he said. Mr. Warwick said he believes the government is unprepared to have auto insurance companies challenge its performance or the government would have allowed companies to compete for extra insurance coverage.

The program makes payments to all grain farmers on an acreage basis of up to 640 acres from a federal subsidy of $1.04 Vz a bushel for wheat sold for million purposes in Canada. That amount, the difference between $3 and the old international wheat price of $1.95 Vz, amounted to about $57 million last year. Some farm groups, however, argue that only wheat farmers should benefit from the subsidy, rather than farmers who grow other grains as well. Mr. .Lang has sent a question-aire to grain farmers asking whether they wish to continue the sysem of making payments on an acreage basis or switch the program and put the annual subsidy into the wheat board's wheat pool account for eventual distribution to wheat farmers. A third choice would allow part of the subsidy to be made on an acreage basis and part through the wheat pool's final payments.
