Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 25, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, February 25, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Ric Swihart Wheat Pool chiefs cautioned not to overload One of the finest gestures on the part of a federal minister in recent years has-to be the shift from government appointment to election by producers New John Deere Four-Wheel-Drive Tractors USED MACHINERY 1 145 Versatile A-1 sHafle. 5020 1968 A1 shape.

Alberta1 PHorte: Sales 642-3845, Parts 643-3944 for 11 members to the ad- visory committee' to the Canadian Wheat Board. Otto Lang, minister in charge of the board, has appointed George Turner to conduct a producer vote April 4 to 21 to elect peers to the committee for four year terms. Mr. Turner can be remembered for running a smooth producer vote when the question of which system of marketing of rapeseed was to be followed in Canada. When-the term advisory committee is used, one thinks the Wheat Board is seeking some form of ad- vice. When the comm- mittee is to be filled by producers electing their fellow producers from 11' districts or zones throughout the Prairies, one thinks the Wheat Board is seeking advice from producers. While the terms, of reference for the com- mittee will likely he ironed out once it is in operation, one can only hope it is designed to keep the Cana- dian Wheat Board better attuned to the concerns of the grain community. The Alberta Wheat Pool, the giant grain handling co operative in this province, has in its wisdom supplied free of charge its president G. L. Harrold of Lamont as a nominee in District 10 and vice president Allan Maepherson of Delia as a nominee in District 9. It just so happens that Park Dobson of Pradise Valley, a Wheat Pool delegate, is a nominee in District 8. The only other district in Alberta has another farm leader as one of its nominees. He is Dobson Lea of Jarvie, president of Unifarm. As much as everybody likes Mr. Lea, he has been president of Unifarm almost since its inception, surely he has too much to do already in a burgeoning agricultural industry which is becoming more complex by the hour. And as for the Wheat 'Pool running and sponsor- ing delegates, it is about time this organization got down to the job. of helping its farmer members as set out in its guidelines. It has lingers in too many pies already. The organization has VANEE LIVESTOCK LTD.

There is enough duplication of ef- forts already. What is needed is for the producers of this province and the otherjjarticipating provinces to shun these farm giants, to elect men from the land without other organization pressures that could slant their thinking. If the producers leave all their thinking to a few, what difference is there to a dictatorship. The only saving grace is that these dictators would be acting in the best interests of producers as they see or their organization sees fit. Besides, what changes or breath of fresh thinking might come from grassroots farmers given the chance to speak out for their industry for all producers in the district. It is a chance too.great to miss. The other nominees in District 9 in Southern Alberta have much the same thoughts. Some of them have even gone as far as to ask one another to step down to keep from watering down the opposi- tion votes to the Wheat Pool nominees for a slim chance .of beating them. Whatever the case, it will be the produces who make the final decisions. Don't let fancy advertising campaigns cloud your thinking.
