Nixon gets his answer PARIS (AP) North Viet- nam asserted Monday the only way President Nixon can obtain the freedom of U.S. prisoners of war and "get out of the swamp in Vietnam" is to abandon hopes of military victory and "negotiate seriously at the Paris conference on Vietnam." The statement issued by North Vietnam's representa- tives to the conference was an attempt to respond to state- ments made by Nixon Sunday night in a television interview. Nixon justified recent U.S. bombing of North Vietnam by saying Communist command forces were imperilling the re- maining U.S. troops in South Vietnam. He also said a resid- ual U.S. force will remain in South Vietnam as long as Amer- ican prisoners of war are held.

United voice still thorn in side of farmers By JIM NEAVES EDMONTON (CP) On' any given subject there may be is many different views as there are Individual farmers in Western Canada and the problem of speaking with united voice remains a thorn in the industry's side. Faced with declining reve- nue from production during the coining year, fanners all agree their major problem is getting enough return to cover the casts of production. But how to achieve (he goal evokes many different replies. Each fanner has his own motivations and economic in- terests and E-hile individually most are well informed and resomeful, collectively they have problems. The problems are com- pouiHled by the actions of par- tisan and political parties and some of the so- called leaders of farm organi- zations, says Dr. A: W. Platt, executive director of the United Farmers of Alberta Cooperative Ltd. The recent parliamentary hassle over the proposed fed- eral grains stabilization plan was an example. Partisan politics played a major role in the government eventually withdrawing the legislation but pressure also was felt from farm organiza- tions. But the various farm In- terest groups were not unani- mous in Oieir reasons for not supporting the act. The federal report on the fu- ture of agriculture in UK 1970s said there are more than Identifiable loot, pro- vincial and rational farmer organization, (situation which, it said, made it impos- sible for farmen to ipeak with one voice. During the last few yean the number el farm organiza- tions has grown in some areas and been reduced in Ubers. In Alberta, Unifarm emerged after a merger of the Alberta Federation of Ag- ricultiire and the Fanners' Union of Alberta and in Sas- katchewan, the Federation of Agriculture Is considering a similar organization. At the same time there has been a growing tendency for special-interest and commod- ity groups to establish their own as the Palllser Wheat Growers in Saskatchewan and (he Rape- seed AuocutJon of Canada. The large prairie wheat pools In Saskatchewan Mani- toba and AJberU, all owned and operated by ftrmer-mem- ber-ownen, and United Grain Growers Ltd., have for the most part led fanner opinion on agricultural and aodal is- cues. The federal report, released early In 1910, said; "The ex- istence of a large number of organizations dissipates lead- ership and organizations' re- sources in too many direc- tions." Both the report and Dr. Platt, who has studied farm organizations and how farm- ers participate In policy-mak- ing, suggested the National Farmers' Union concept will not work and that, while the final answer lies wilh the fanners themselves, a federa- tion-type of organization may be UK answer. Nearly all farm organiza- tions now are affiliated with the Canadian Federation of Agriculture which, Dr. Platt said, represents the "consen- sus of farm thinking as best it can be determined at this time." However, because the CFA's policies emerge as compromise of what its mem- ber organizations think they can live with, "the best leaves a lot to be desired." The WFU, a militant group which advocates collective bargaining for producers, is a direct-membership organiza- tion of individual farmers and, as such, cannot (peak fur commodity groups u the CFA can. "Only a body like fee present Federation of Agricul- ture can claim to represent all the federal re- port said. "Whether all farmen want to be so represented u an- other question and one to which the answer is not clear." Dr. Platt said the NFU ap- pears to have set itself up as permanent opposition to gov- eminent and "indeed to everyone etae." "It gains the attention of government by blocking raadf or throwing wheat on prime minister and saying: 1 have a problem, you Dr. Flatt safcj.
