Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 16, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta a - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Saterdoy, January Id, 1*71 ._,_ Farm income program may have $10,000 guide REGINA (CP) - Otto Lang, the minister In charge of the Canadian Wheat Board, Friday defended the Low Inventory For Tomorrow program and called for more understanding of federal agriculture policies. "What troubles ine is the question of how to get enough discussion on policies before they are put into effect," he told the founding convention of the Palliser Wheat Growers Association. "With government involvement . . . inevitably any proposal for change becomes a matter for debate but this sometimes means more heat than light. The real difficulty is in trying to move quickly." Answering criticism of the LIFT program which has been made by some quarters, the minister said it troubles him that despite efforts to spread information, many farmers don't understand how the plan affects them. Referring to government pro- posals to implement a farm income stabilization program which he said he hopes to go ahead with soon, Mr. Lang said that a working limit of $10,000 is being talked about as an annual income. This would mean that farmers' contributions to such a plan would be made on their first $10,000 of income and payments in bad years would be based on that figure. But he said no one can tell with certainty how the stabilization fund will work out. Mr. Lang also hinted that grain might better be stored an farms instead of clogging the delivery systems by filling up commercial storage points. "It is a mistake to pile up grain in storage that is more expensive than somewhere else," he said. "Some grains have to be in position for sales commitments but the rest must be stored where it is least expensive. We must not let storing of grain in commercial positions clog the delivery system." Fined $150 for abusing his horses EDMONTON (CP) - Paul Demers, 23, of Edmonton, was fined $150 and costs Friday after pleading guilty to a charge of not providing sufficient food and shelter for his horses. Mr. Demers kept four horses in pasture in an Edmonton suburban area. Autopsy findings revealed in court that one mare died Monday of malnutrition and exposure. The society for the prevention of cruelty to animals laid the charges. Grains policy probed Fly-ash cleanup wanted GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) -The Alberta health department Friday promised to investigate a pollution complaint raised by a Grade 11 class in the city. The class phoned A. R. Schulz, an air pollution engineer with the department, complaining about fly-ash emissions from the North Canadian Forest Industries' waste burner. A company official promised the situation would be cleaned up by July. Mr. Schulz said the students' complaint was the first his department had received. SMALL CENTRE There were between 200 and 300 inhabitants in New West minster, B.C., in 1864. REGINA (CP) - The Western Agriculture Conference broke with tradition Friday and instead of resolutions, prepared a policy paper for presentation to its national body, the Canadian Federation of Agriculture. The western group - representatives of the Saskatchewan Federation of Labor, Manitoba Farm Bureau, United Grain Growers and Unifarm of Alberta - also decided to take a new look at its strength within the CFA. A. M. Runciman, president of the UGG, told the two - day meeting which ended Friday the primary function of the conference is to protect the interests of the Prairie farmer "otherwise we leave ourselves at the mercy" of the eastern CFA interests. "We leave ourselves open to letting others doctor matters of our vital concern." The paper approved Friday sets out what delegates believe a Canadian grains policy should be. It says Prairie grain producers are interested in the farm income stabilization program outlined by the minister but they "are not prepared to support it unless significant modifications are made to the original proposals." Among other main points recommended were: Retention of the wheat board separate from other national marketing programs; -All feed grains except farm-to-farm sales under the wheat board; -Marketing by the board of flax, rye and rapeseed providing this is approved by plebiscites; -Modification of the pro- Robbers jailed for 3 years GRANDE PRAIRE (CP) -Two Alberta men were sentenced Friday to three years in jail on charges of robbery with violence.
