The 12 major members of the strong in their own expected to home in on feed grain problems specifically. The issue touches most farmers in Canada's grain and livestock-based agricultural economy. Differences follow regiona) lines. Western of fur less than they receive domestically, re- maining competitive in both markets. Eastern and B C. stockmen, primarily dairy farmers, want the feed cheaper, cither by gov- ernment subsidy or lower price. But western bar. vested a record barley crop las; y e a r a c e stiff competition from U.S. feed corn, and want to keep the domestic high. The problem has been compli- cated in the past when western farmers, facing surpluses, sold each other feed grain at prices below both the export and do- mestic price. And it took another turn when western farmers attempter to rid themselves of a surplus by raking and feeding hogs. The result was a serious hog glut last year. Discussion at the CFA annual meeting are expected to be hampered somewhat by a feder- ation study group on the prob- lem being unable to finish its work by meeting time. Last week, the federation asked the government to expand its Food Freight Assistance Program, under whicn the i'n'- erel government subsidizes feed shipments to the East and to B.C.

OTTAWA (CP) Radical surgery on the National Re- search Council and other gov- ernment agencies would follow adoption by the government of recommendations of the Senate science policy committee. NRC might disappear as an institution if shorn of all the ac- tivities the committee proposes. The committee's report made public today urges that exten- sive K'RC funding of basic re- search be handed over to foun- dations set up under a Canadian research board. These foundations would fi- nance research in universities and similar institutions in the physical sciences, the life sci- ences and the social sciences and humanities. They and their parent board vould come under the federal secretary of state department. NRC laboratories would be af- ected by another March 31, 1973 establishment of a Canadian industrial laborator- es corporation. TAKE OVER LABORATORIES This new Crown corporation would take over all government laboratories doing industrial re- search and development for sec- ondary and service industries and for mining and public utili- ties. It would come under the fed- eral department of industry, trade and commerce. NRC and other agencies and departments doing basic re- search also would lose these ac- tivities, to a proposed national research academy insti- tutes for the physical sciences, tbe life sciences and the social sciences. A substantial portion of the work of tbe institutes should be performed at the request of gov- ernment agencies and private firms on a fee basis, says the Senate committee. Basic research by all govern- ment agencies should be re- viewed by the new federal sci- ence ministry to see whether they are justified and can be transferred to universities. In its recommendations about research grants, the report in- cludes the Medical .Research Council and the social science and humanities programs of the Canada Council. These too would go to the pro- posed research board founda tions. The Canada Council would be left only with its grants pro grams for the arts. The report says 10 per cent o national effort in research am VICTIM OF VICTORY A prisoner is led to jail in Dacca with the rifle of a Mukti Bahini guerrilla fighter at his head. Thousands of suspected collaborators with the Pakistani army have been swept up in the wave of vengence in Bangladesh. development should be devoted to basic research by 1980. That would mean about million dollars a year by the end of this decade. This com- pares with 23.1 per cent and million in 1967. This target would "substan- Sfilly reduce the share of the national research and develop- ment effort devoted to" basic research. But the amount spent would rise substantially up to 1980, provided the projects and pro- grams were worthwhile. The proposed foundations should be ordered to stress quality rather than quantity in supporting pure research and give grants only to researchers with demonstrated international quality standards. The foundations should assist only projects "relevant to the Canadian scene" and steer dear of Involving many millions of dollars in one project. During this decade, priority in basic research should be the so- cial sciences and humanities first, Mowed by [he life sci- ences, mainly those related to human health. The committee recommends that the science ministry reap- praise all government scholar- ship and fellowship programs in the light of manpower available and the probable emphasis oo industrial research and develop- ment during the 1970s.

TORONTO (CP) Thou- sands of United States youths have fled to Canada in recent years to escape the military draft and what many call the horrors of an unjust war in Vietnam. Some, already inducted into army but fearing for their lives should they be posted to Souttieasi Asia, have deserted and joined the draft-dodgers streaming into Canada. Unof- ficial estimates place more than Americans now in Canada, with the number in- creasing weekly as the war drags on. But offsetting the tide, at least in part, is a small tric- kle of Canadians crossing the border to join the U.S. armed forces with the specific aim of seeing the world at best or fighting in Vietnam, at worst They come from a variet of backgrounds, sparked by variety of motives. Sime see it EG their mis sion. others want a chance to travel while others just need a job with a challenge. Others sons of Second World War vet erans, feel they are continuini their heritage by fighting in Vietnam. CHANCE FOR TRAVEL In recent interviews, five Canadians explained why they joined the U.S. armed forces Sgt. Dennis Brown: 19 and a clerk with the federal finance department in Ottawa when he decided to join. "I figured I would travel more with the U.S. Army than the Canadian. It was more of a novelty then there were JANUARY DRESS SALE Buy one at regular price and receive another of fhe same value for only Siiei MVi to I RACK OF DRESSES 20% OH NEW YORK FURS five of us from the same block who volunteered to- gether at Lockport Now a 29-year-old recruiting officer in Niagara Falls, N.Y., he said that as an army em- ployee he feels he can't dis- cuss U.S. policy on (he war. He served in Vietnam as a sergeant from September, 1966, for one year. Jolicoeur, 23, To- ronto: "I have always felt ttet even as a Canadian the case of communism ver-jus democracy is something that transcends political bounda- ries. "I feel that as a Canadian I have a tremendous stake in the power struggle in me world. And I feel if we rose it, if the free world does, Canadi- ans certainly will suffer, even though at the moment we have a neutral position as a nation." He joined the Marine Corps in October, 1965. and fought in V i e t n a m in search-and-de- stroy missions from May, 1966 to April, 1967. Three years later, Mr. Jolicoeur re-en- listed for another term with the Marines. CHANGED MIND Lcavcy, 2C, Toronto: "Maybe I was even in love with John he says. He joined the U.S. Air Force eight years ago to escape from school and for a chance to travel. He applied for over- seas duty in 1966 because he wanted to go to England or Europe. He thought it might be a cheap way for his Cana- dian wife to travel, "so I put in for it." he ended up in Vietnam flying rescue missions from June, 1966 to Xtober, 1967. 'From the time f went ;bere until somewhere late in 1969 or early 1970 1 thought i the war was justified." He now says "I'm against the war right across the board because it's useless, bloody stupid, useless." -Sgt.
