OTTAWA (CP) Conserva- tive House Leader Gerald W. Baldwin asked a question in the Commons Tuesday that appar- ently provoked Prime Minister Trudeau and got what have be- come almost traditional lip movements in reply. Mr. Baldwin asked Mr. Tru- deau whether the government confusion' on marketing bill OTTAWA (CP) Govern- ment differences on proposed national marketing legislation illustrate the "utter confusion" surrounding federal agriculture policy, the Commons agricul- ture committee was told here. Alf Gleave (NDP-Saskatoon- Biggar) said the fact that two government members opposed an amendment to the proposed legislation pointed up the "tor- tuous manoeuvring the govern- ment was going through." An amendment proposed by Ab Douglas that beef cattle be excluded from provisions of the legislation was opposed by farmer Florian Cote and Marcel Les- sard Both argued that the legisla- tion was designed as an um- brella under which all farm products must be included. If cattle were excluded, "we don't reach the objective of the Mr. Lessard said. Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson explained that since there are no provincial agencies set up, to deal with cattle market- Oldest mason dies at 105 THUNDER BAY, Ont. (CP) John A. Walker, who is be- Jived to have been the world's oldest mason, died Monday in Kelowna, B.C., it was learned here Tuesday. He was 105 years old. Mr. Walker is also believed to have been the world's oldest locomotive engineer, holding a 75-year membership pin in the Brotherhood of Locomotive En- gineers. Born at Ashbum, Ont., in 1865. he joined the Canadian Pacific Railway as a waterboy in 1881 at Portage La Prairie, Man., and followed construction of (lie main line from Winni- peg to Calgary. ing, excluding the product "nei- ther adds .anything nor takes anything away" from the bill.' As well, the legislation could be easily amended, once it be- came law, to include beef if producers wanted national mar- keting co-ordination. Beef was excluded because there was substantial opposition from producers. COULDN'T SEE LOGIC Mr. Gleave said he failed to see the logic behind the govern- ment's reasoning. The matter was being treated as though "a threat to the beef industry was being removed." But the real threat to the beef industry resulted from govern- ment policies that allowed unre- stricted imports of beef from New Zealand and Australia. At the same time, a recently-an- nounced expansion of the forage industry would lead to a further expansion of the beef industry. "Here we have this utter con- fusion of government policy. How can we logically accept Mr. Cote said he originally ac- cepted the beef amendment be- cause he felt it would facilitate passage of the legislation. He no longer felt that it would. .Jack Homer said hogs should be excluded from the bill on the same basis as beef. Recent travels by the committee across Canada, hear- ing opinions on the legislation, brought home the fact that many hog producers did not want" to be included. Western hog producers, who accounted for about of the hogs raised in the country, indicated "quite viv- idly" that they did not wish the controls or quotas that might result from the legislation, Mr. Homer said. He moved an amendment to remove hogs from the bill's p r o v i s i o n s but the meeting ended before a vote could be taken. woiid replace the Public Order Act with new legislation when the act expires at the end of April. When Mr. Trudeau said that be had answered such a ques- tion to his satisfaction the day before, Mr. Baldwin asked whether Mr. Trudeau was "afraid" to answer the question directly. The prime minister didn't an- swer, but moments later he mimed an expression that only he has said is "fuddle-duddle" and a series of oohs and ahs went up from the opposition benches. "It's the only word he said one unidentified member opposite. The opposition has twice ac- cused Mr. Trudeau of mouthing obscenities in the Commons. Mr. Trudeau said Monday in reply to a Commons question by Mr. Baldwin that Parliament would have a chance to discuss proposed new legislation on pub- lic order before the present temporary law expires. Although the matter would be brought before the House the form in which it would be presented would not be revealed until the time came.

NOEL 506 4th Avenue S., Lethbridge Thursday, February 25th From a.m. to p.m. Flares brought disaster AUCKLAND (CP) Distress flares sighted over the Tasman Sea helped bring the Canadian- built sailing barque Endeavour II to disaster Monday on a sandbar near New Zealand's northernmost tip, it was dis- closed today. It was feared that the 183-foot vessel, a replica of Endeavour in which Calpain James Cook discovered Australia and New Zealand 200 years ago, will be a total loss. While becalmed In the Tas- man Sea on the way from Aus- tralia to New Zealand two weeks ago, the Endeavour crev saw four flares and spent 12 hours of fuel in fruitlessly searching the area, crew mem- ber Jim Delaney said today. The 12 hours fuel supply could perhaps have saved the Endea- vour as it was swept helplessly toward a sandbar at Parengar- cnga Harbor entrance, where it grounded. The crew of 14 es- caped to shore by life raft. Canadian businessman Ronalt Craig, who owns the Endeavour said his million craft was nol insured. Insurance on such crafl is almost impossible to get, he said. Money was spent instead on the best in safety gear, he said. Craig said he intends to at- tempt salvage when the weather abates. But local residents wht know tlin destructive force of storms in Hie area doubt there will be anything to salvage. CAPITOL CAPITOL OPEN TILL 9 P.M. THURSDAY and FRIDAY NIGHTS!
