Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta foturduy, Janu.ry I, THI UTHMIDOI HERALD Despite anvil chorus Lang knows his stuff Morse running SALEM, Ore. (AP) Wayne Morse is going to try and regain a seat in the U.S. Senate Morse, defeated in 1968 by Re- publican Robert Packwood after serving 24 years in the Senate first as a Republican and then as a Democrat, filed his candi- dacy Thursday for the Demo- cratic nomination. By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA When the time comes to write the history of the 28th Parnament perhaps man than i passing thought might be given to, the expen ence of Otto Lang, unlikely though it may seem one of its foremost casualties. The mild mannered Rhodes scholar won the Saskatoon Humboldt seat lor the Liberals by Just a few hundred votes in a tight three party fight where all candidates got around a third of the vote. It was the only Saskatchewan seat the government managed to cap- ture in 1988. It was pretty obvious that the brilliant former dean of law at the University of Saskatchewan would be offered a cabinet post He was. Appointed minister without portfolio in July 1963 and minister of manpower am immigration in September 1970 Lang was also given responsib- ility for the Canadian Wheat Board. In a time of rising unemploy- ment being manpower minister is obviously going to have its strains.

Being wheat hoard minister and fac ing a strong and highly-voca prairie opposition is m joy ride either. And besides Hie jobs and the problems there was Mr. Lang himself. Faced with working with someone of real intellec- tual stature, some people fee uncomfortable. They feel they don't measure up. Questions and answers tend to be put and given on a professor pupil re- lationship. Unfortunately, that's how it is with Mr. Lang. It is difficult to communicate on an even plain. NO WHIZ HIMSELF In the art of cotrimunication Mr. Lang is no whiz himself In today's world the most pop- ular politicians tend to be the ones who can translate very complex situations into siinpli cities. That, in itself, must of ten be a distortion. The Sas katcbewan MP won't do it. He does his homework. He knows his stuff well better than many other cabinet ministers in fact and so he can trans late the entire problem rather than just speak on the know! edge he has obtained by skim ming the surface of it. So in Mr. Lang's various ap- pointments and with prairie parliamentary representation the way it a right now, there are all the ingredients for ttou- ble. There has been plenty of it. One of Mr. Lang's aims has been to streamline the grain in- dustry from top to bottom. While the average prairie farm- ers eyes any changes Ottawa suggests with suspicion and even outright hostility, there's no doubt that the changes the wheat board minister tried to make through the ill fated grain stabilization bill and will probably suggest be made through his grain handling and transportation study, are aim- ed at making work more ben- eficial for the farmer. His LIFT program too Lower Inventory for Tomor- was an imaginative plan. At a time when wheat reserves throughout the world were ex- tremely high, Mr. Lang's plan to reduce them in Canada by turning more land to summer fallow and forage crops aimed at bringing competition back Into the business. The farmer often looked on it with a jaun- diced eye. FARMERS UNIMPRESSED even the fact that Canadian grain sales have been break- ing records in recent years seem to leave the farmers un- impressed by Mr. Lang. So suc- cessful has the government's selling program been that the wheat board minister has even told the House of Commons that current handling and trans- portation facUities may soon be stretched to the limit. Mean- while, opposition MPs continue to call for Mr. Lang's blood. Only last month, Mr. Lang announced that the Chinese had signed an agreement to buy 117.6 million bushels of wheat worth about million to prai- rie farmers. That came on top of two other deals in 1971 which saw (he Chinese buy 98 million Attorney-general jailed for lying NEW ORLEANS (AP) Jack P. P. Gremillion, attor- ney-general of Louisiana, was sentenced here to three years in prison for lying to a federal grand jury. Gremillion, 56, was convicted on five counts of perjury. The sentence was for three years on each count, with the terms to be served concurrently. Greraillion was convicted by a federal court fry on charges of having lied when questioned by the federal grand jury in- vestigating the operations of Lhe bankrupt Louisiana Loan and Thrift Co.

But how many cheers did you hear from the prairies for Mr. Lang? Few. Of course, Mr. Lang has made mistakes. The fiasco over the stabilization bill, despite the merits in the measures it pro- posed, was largely due to poor planning in trying to get it through Parliament. It could have been avoided. A good por- tion of the overseas sales have been in low-return crops such as barley. But despite points like these, Mr. Lang has done rather a laudable job in Ottawa. The farmers may not immediately see it that way, but it would be interesting to ponder on what Mr. Lang's image and popular- ity might have been if the Lib- erals had managed to have stronger representation from the prairies. In the next election Mr. Lang will again face a strong three- way fight in his constituency. Perhaps after his experiences in his first term of office he may feel that life is better as a law dean than a cabinet min- ister. If he doesn't return to of- fice next time it will be a sad loss especially, even though they may not think so, for the nation's grain farmers, Health care services study set EDMONTON (CP) Otta'ra and the Alberta government have agreed to conduct a ma- jor study of health care ser- vices in the province, it was announctd today.

CIV changes coach design MONTREAL (CP) Cana- dian National Railways an- nounced passenger coach design changes today, that it said .would1 make long-distance travel more comfortable. The railway said it will reno- vate eight cars to include indi- vidual reclining-type seats with more room for passengers as well as carpeted floors and indi- rect lighting. Completion is late spring. scheduled tor Air Canada will show small profit MONTREAL (CP) Air Can- ada reports it will show a small profit for fiscal year 1971, re- bounding from net lueses of more than million in 1970. Yves Pratte, Air Canada board chairman, said today that results for the first ll-months of 1971 were better tlian had been expected because of larger traf- fic volumes in the last quarter and effective cost controls. He said, however, that the profit.figures still are not ade- quate.' The general slowdown of the economy has affected both business and pleasure travel and competition from non- scheduled-cbarter-flights has limited the growth of vacation travel on scheduled services, particularly over the busy North Atlantic. "Nevertheless, die airline has experienced a marked improve- ment in both passenger and cargo traffic during the last few months of he said in a re- port to company employees. Mr. Pratte did not say what the expected profit would total. The publicly-owned airline re- ported a net loss of in 1970, the first loss in several years after returning net in- come of in 1969. Although the position of Air Canada and other major air- lines has improved recently, "1971 has still been one of the most difficult for the industry in the history of aviation." He said inflatjonaiy pressures continue to be a problem. Mr. Pratte predicted passen- ger traffic volumes, supported by lower air fares for the Noi-th Atlantic, will improve in 1972, but added the airline's growth was tied in with expansion of the Canada economy.
