Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 25, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta If - THI IITHMIOOI HIRAID - Thursday, February 23, 1971 Wheat exports are up OTTAWA (CP) -Gxports of wheat by the four leading exporters-the United States, Canada, Australia and Argentina-totalled 691.3 million bushels in the period August to December last year. The figure was up sharply from 470.4 million bushels in the same period of 1969, and 490.7 million bushels in the same period of 1969, and 490.7 million bushels the previous year. France, a new wheat export ing country, shipped 38.1 million bushels in the four months, August to November. Its exports for the five months to December, 1969, totalled 95.5 million, and France exported 67.6 million in the same period of 1968. Canadian wheat exports in the August-December period last year totalled 186.6 million, compared with 108.3 in 1969 and 137.8 million bushels in 1968. Peak exports for this period were in 1965 when 277.3 million bushels were exported, the low point in the last 20 years was in 1950 with 87.1 million bushels. The Wheat Review, issued by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics, said latest available estimates indicated that supplies of wheat on Jan. 1 in the four main exporting countries totalled 2,538.8 million bushels, down 19 per cent from a year earlier. Jury rules death accidental EDMONTON (CP) - A coroner's jury said that there was a lack of proper safety super vision at the Steel Company of Canada plant here during the death of a steelworker last September.

Federal land use proposals in north rapped by Territorial Legislature YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T. -, New land use regulations proposed by the federal govern-1 ment ware submitted to authorities here with such short notice for comments as to curtail meaningful evaluation of the rules which will apply to industry in the north. The two main interested parties, representing mining and petroleum companies, respectively, have not been consulted at all by Ottawa authorities on the draft. The charges were made by a subcommittee of the territorial legislature headed by David H. Searle, member for Yellowknife, set up to examine federal proposals and to deliver its comments in hope of influencing, the final set of rules expected later this year. Ottawa delivered its blueprints here Feb. 9. By the middle of this month the subcommittee consul ted with conservation people, mining and petroleum associations, boards of trade and native associations since, according to Mr. Searle, the new land use rules will effect residents of the territories as well as compel industry to certain types of vehicles, exploration methods and rehabilitation processes. Yet, his committee concluded "with regrets" that the same type of discussions were not held by federal authorities with industry representatives. The government notified last year the mining and petroleum industry of its intention to create new rules and asked for submissions. Since then and, especially, on the draft proposals government suspended the dialogue, although the area in question included the Arctic and touches all parts of the Yukon and the N.W.T. where exploration for oil, natural gas and minerals is in full swing. One of the most, important recommendations made by the subcommittee included suggestions of compensation to peo- ple effected by industry activity. This, Recording to Mr. Searle, would be a logical extension of federal proposals to get compensation money from companies in the shape of a performance bond to ensure that disturbed land is repaired and reclaimed. "For some reason, we worry a great deal about the ecology but forget about the people . . . yet, they have to be retrained or moved due to some disturbances caused by industry." says the Yellowknife solicitor. Land use regulations will form the first pert of new government policy for resource development and management in the north. The legislature that had first glimpse of the land use proposals supports its basic principles, that development of the north should serve the interest of the people here. That all, within the power of science and technology, should be done to avoid damage to the land, flora and fauna and that in order to combat high unemployment within the northern region, northerners must be given opportunities to work. Other points of.the new land use regulations include ground pressure of vehicles, times when rig movements, seismic work may be carried out and the authorities vested with local superv i s o r s to suspend drilling activities in cases of sivlls, pollution and surface damage. On the latter, the subcommittee asked Ottawa to give operators an opportunity to "clean up" their mess instead of arbitrary closure of a drill site QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Btdg. PHONE 328-76841 West', 'police9 rob bank of $8,500 DOWN1NGTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Six men, one dressed as a priest and another as a police captain, robbed a bank near this southeastern Pennsylvania community of $8,500. Cameras photographed the men as they forced patrons to lie on the floor and as they went behind the counter to clean out tellers' drawers at Southeast National Bank in nearby Ex-teon. The FBI said the man dressed in priest's clothing entered the bank first. He went to the officer's area of the bank and inquired about opening a savings account. The others, including one dressed as a policeman with gold captain's bars on his shoulders, then entered. All were armed. Duke's squadron leaving Ireland BELFAST (Reuter) - An armored car squadron commanded by the Duke of Kent, cousin of Queen Elizabeth, is leaving after three weeks with the British peacekeeping forces in Northern Ireland.

Man takes stab at being late for work EDMONTON (CP) - A 33-year-old man took a stab at being late for work. He called police and complained of being stabbed by three men on his way to his job. He had a shoulder wound that required five stitches (o close. Police investigated and charged the man with public mischief. He was worried about being late and stabbed himself for an excuse, polica said. But many observers here believed the early withdrawal of the duke's unit could be connected with fears for his safety and the security problem posed Jeep' GMiMor ..Beefier For large campers or heavier loads QVW TO 8,000 LBS.
