Mr. Hanzlik is a native of Czechoslovakia. He was born in Monkovce April 4, 1896. Mrs. Hanzlik, the former Gladys Sutka, was born in Hostovce Feb. 28, 1898. Mr. Hanzlik served in the Austro-Hungary Army on the Ukrainian and Italian fronts from 1915 to 1918. In 1919 and 1920 he served in the Czecho-slovakian Army. Upon returning home from war service he met, in the next village, Gladys Sutka whom he married Jan. 17, 1921. They lived in Czechoslovakia until April 4, 1928 when he came to Canada to seek a better living, leaving his wife and four daughters in Europe. With his brother-in-law, William Sutka, and friend John Holecka he worked in the bush areas of British Columbia until 1936 when he settled on a farm in the Battersea district of the Iron Springs community.

FOREMOST (Special) - 1-1. A, (Bud) Olson, federal minister of agriculture, warned farmers of serious problems lying ahead if there was not more co-ordination regarding access to markets for Canadian produce. Speaking to more than 150 at a Foremost and District Chamber of Commerce banquet held in Foremost Community Hall, Mr. Olson stated "We must share the market whatever that market is, as equitably as possible among the producers." Mr. Olson said that 75 per cent of his time as minister is spent in trying to remedy mar-1 keting problems. Bill C176 now before the Commons, the Farm Marketing Products Act, is designed to assist with many of these problems, especially that of producing against surpluses. "Overproduction against demand has long been a problem," said the minister. He blamed lack of co-ordination between some 120 marketing agencies now in operation for the problem. "They are often working at cross-purposes," he said, "and should be co-ordinating their efforts and working in relation to what the market can absorb." He emphasized the bill was not an attempt to set up a bunch of agencies which farmers did not want, but to co-ordinate them. "Each province, seems determined to be self-sufficient in each commodity," Mr. Olson continued. He pointed out the provinces have the final say in marketing in their own area. The bill was in no way meant to challenge provincial regulations. Mr. Olson said a reasonably free movement across Canada of farm products was essential, but felt it would be economic suicide to lift provincial barriers on grain movement. This would destroy the market quota system and equitable sharing. He conceded there might be some merit in looking at the removal of barriers within the grain producing provinces themselves. This might, in turn, create problems with the other provinces. Mr. Olson warned fanners there was probably no agricultural commodity in Canada, with the possible exception of beef, that they could not overproduce, and in so doing, week the market. Serious problems would result if the practice continued. LIFT ENDS Speaking of the LIFT program, Mr. Olson said it was now at an end, as it was instituted for one year only. He felt that some of the objectives had been reached, as the marketing, picture for this year was much brighter than a year ago. To back up the claim, the minister produced grain export figures for the period Aug. I, 1970 to Dec. 23, 1970, and compared them with the same period of 1969. The figures, released by his office in Ottawa the day of the meeting are as follows: GRAIN EXPORTS Aug. 1 - Dec. 23, 1969: Wheat, 90.3 million bushels; Oats, 400,000 bushels; Barley, 13.2 million bushels; Rye, 1.2 million bushels; Flax, 6.6 million bushels; and Rapeseed 6.0 million bushels. Aug. 1 - Dec. 23, 1970: Wheat, 172.2 million bushels; Oats, 7.6 million bushels; Bar- rVldoy, January 8, 1971 _ THE UTHSRIDOE HERALD - 3 Icy, 83.9 million bushels; Rye, 2.7 million bushels; flax, 7.5 million bushels; Rapeseed, 13.1 million bushels. One of the aims of the LIFT program was to lower the grain inventory. Mr. Olson slated that the improvement was due to [he LIFT program, combined with similar actions taken by oilier governments. Australia had a 40 per cent cut back in planting of grains in the 1968-70 period, while the U.S. showed a 30 per cent reduction in the same period. The minister pointed out that there was approximately a 50 per cent reduction in Canada last year, with 12.8 million acres seeded. Mr. Olson said he could make no promises to farmers regarding tales in the future. He pointed out that we could only ship grain for which we have markets, but also mentioned that there are some commitments extending beyond the end of this year, which was not the case a year ago. Similarly, he said it would be difficult to calculate what the final payment would be on barley this year, as the rate had fluctuated between a low of 78 cents a bushel to the current $1.30. Some barley sold at the lower end of the scale had long term commitments stretching into the future. The minister stated however that the price was definitely improved this year and there would be no deficit in the barley pool. Bill C175, The Canada Grain Act, was also dealt with by the minister. This Bill received Royal Assent Dec. 18. Mr. Olson stated much remained to be done in implementing changes. Mr. Olson pointed out that ft was only good business sense to provide grains of the quality and protein content required by the customer. Another point in the Bill would deal with the control and allocation of box cars in times of special need. Box cars could be directed to certain shipping blocks at certain times. Other sections deal with such matters as the allocation of space in terminal elevators. Speaking in answer to a question on beef production the minister expressed satisfaction with the present arrangements with the U.S. Mr. Olson felt that the increased demand for beef will be greater in Canada and the U.S. in the future than production. Canada is a net importer of beef. Mr. Olson mentioned, the imports particularly from Japan, in exchange for raw materials. A lengthy question and an swer period following Mr. 01 son's address dealt with many matters of specific interest to local farmers. Much of the di& cussion centred on the contra^ versial Income Stablization program. It was apparent that there was much dissatisfaction with the proposal, largely due to misconceptions on behalf of the farmers. Bitter defeat for Bladettes NOBLEFORD (Special) The annual "Grad Games" were held in the Noble Central School Auditorium recently. The once supreme "Bladette Grads" coached by Dick Hehr, were felled by the 1970-71 edition of the Bladettes by a score Of 52-25. It marked the first time the "Bladette Grads" had been defeated since the games began in 1954. The "Blade Grads" fared much belter. They kept their undefeated record intact, with a 46-38 score over the 1970-71 edition of the Blades.
