Wednesday, January 27, 1971 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - 15 Ottawa can't alter money for grain storage support OTTAWA (CP) - Fanners forced to store grain in order to qualify for government support programs face unnecessary restrictions in their operations, Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, said here. Mr. Lang told delegates at the week-long Canadian Federation of Agriculture annual meeting that the total amount of money available for support of the grain industry "cannot be increased by altering the method by which it is paid." Farmers and governments must decide which programs union Monetary agreement near PARIS (Reuter) - France and West Germany agreed today on principles which should lead to the construction of a European economic and monetary union, West German Chancellor Willy Brandt said here after two days of talks with President Georges Pompidou. "We have no common program because the question of Europe's construction must be worked out with our partners," he told reporters. "But our two governments are agreed on a set of principles, and if these principles are put into effect, they should lead us all toward the economic and U.S. $1 coin has no silver PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The first $1 coin to be minted in the United States since before the Second World War depicts Gen Dwight D. Eisenhower on one side and the American eagle on the other. Unlike its predecessor, it will contain no silver. The design for the new $1 coin, first to be struck since 1935, was unveiled here at the U.S. Mint' by its designer, Frank Gasparro, and Mary T, Brooks, director of the mint. The coin is to contain 40 per cent silver when it is distributed in proof and uncirculated edi-tions after July 1, but in the 200 million coins scheduled for general circulation the silver will be replaced by the cupronickel alloy used in the 25-cent coin monetary union," the chancellor added. Asked whether the Common Market countries would appoint ministers for Europe, an idea which the French president outlined at a news conference last week, Brandt replied: "This question will come later." EXPECTS PROGRESS A French government spokesman said Pompidou told Brandt during their talks he thought the main problems of British entry into the Common Market might be overcome by fall. In two rounds of talks, Brandt agreed with Pompidou that after an initial three-year trial period, members should pause before making any further com mitments. This was a major shift from the previous German standpoint which urged a general commitment to the plan fully to establish economic and monetary union by 1980. By winning over Brandt to his views on future European confederation, the French president has removed criticism in Germany and elsewhere that France systematically raised difficulties over European unity. Pompidou also gained time to see how the Common Market would fare if Britain joined before committing France to full monetary union, French officials said. Brandt will return home with further French backing for his policy of improving relations with Eastern Europe, having been assured by the president that "France unreservedly supports you." to of Take Off Fat With Home Recipe Plan are the most useful ways spend the given amount money. Mr. Lang said requirements that dictate the storage of a certain amount of grain as a condition for support payments "place an unnecessary restriction on the freedom of farmers and their organizations and the Canadian wheat board to operate the system to their best advantage." The Temporary Wheat Reserves Act, to be discontinued in the wake of a grains stabilization program for agriculture, has been restricting, he said. TIES UP MONEY The act had not' been beneficial because it tied up money for wheat storage that might have been used in other ways. Mr. Lang said farmers during the last 20 years carried adequate supplies of grain to meet commercial requirements without having government support programs for grain storage. As well, the storage payment would not induce fanners to carry any more grain than they wish. So the best interest of grain producers was served by treating storage costs as normal costs of production and freeing government money for the development of new markets and "to supplement cash receipts in poor marketing years." The grains stabilization pro-grant would introduce a government-farmer fund. Both would contribute to it in good years and farmers could draw on it in lean ones. Mr. Lang said the concept of the grain stabilization program is predicated on the assumption that the main source of income for grain producers is from sales' rather than subsidies. PLANS NEW QUOTAS He would soon introduce new quota system removing the present bias toward wheak-the highest-price grain. In a question period, Mr. Lang said the present quota system has "forced every man to grow some wheat." His new system would "equal out" the differences between grains. Although fanners would con tinue to decide themselves what they would grow, by removing artificial barriers . such as the present quota system they would be able to concentrate on the most economical crops for their regions.

By DON LcBlanc VANCOUVER (CP) - Learning to live without public transportation in Canada's third largest city has been easy for some people, next to impossible for others. It has been something of an adventure for many of the I young since Jan. 4. But for many of the elderly, it has meant staying at home, missing regular senior citizens' gatherings and church meetings. The poor and the handicapped have also suffered. Three weeks ago Monday, 1,800 transit workers abandoned British Columbia Hydro buses in Greater Vancouver and the capital of Victoria in a strike to back demands for a 20-per-cent wage increase over two years. Hydro, a Crown corporation, offered 13 per cent. It was a sunny day with temperatures in the 30s when people who had previously thought hitchhiking taboo first stuck out their thumbs for a ride. For many, the cost made taxis out of the question. In the days that followed, Vancouver was hit with its worst January snow storm in history and the city's total winter snowfall climbed to 58.1 inches, the highest it has been since the weather office began keeping records back in 1938. TAXI BUSINESS BOOMING Meanwhile, business has been booming for overworked taxi companies, the Amalgamated Transit Union has voted down a mediation commission proposal for a M^-per-cent, two-year agreement, and politicians have tossed the issue around-from the city to the provincial gov eminent, then back to the people. The strike is keeping an estimated 60,000 persons at home, Among the most seriously in convenienced are pensioners, housewives who don't have second car for shopping and youngsters who can't use the bus to go to the movies or sports events. "Most of us are not getting around very well at all," say a resident of St. Luke's home for the aged in Vancouver. "For instance, one of the older ladies hasn't been out at all for the last three weeks and she was out every dav before the strike." LDS Luncheon MAGRATH (HNS )- Taylor Stake High Council honored several of its LDS Church members at a social in the Magrath Relief Society room. President Fay Walker welcomed 45 guests to a buffet luncheon. Mr. and Mrs. Lyman Jacobs were feted before their departure for western Australia. President Walker made presentations to Mr. and Mrs. Jacobs, Bishop Ron Watson Dorrel Stone, Willian Ander son and Artie Hudson. All have served the Stake but have been released for other positions. Gladys Waterman, a resident of St. Luke's who has spinal arthritis, says bus drivers have "every right to complain if they can't get things like consecutive hours." CAUSING INCONVENIENCE "But I wonder if they have any idea of the sheer volume of pain they are causing. There are dozens of old people around here who are house-bound. It cost $1 to get a cab to the stores and most of these people are getting only $110 a month." Buses in the two cities collected an e s t i.m a t e d 200,000 fares daily before the strike, a figure which excludes mailmen and others who use public transit without charge, such as senior citizens. In a recent telephone survey of 200 residents of the Greater Vancouver area, 31 per cent of those interviewed said they ride buses once a week or more, indicating that roughly 250,000 use a bus on a regular basis when they are running. Ten per cent -about 90,000 person -are daily riders. Indications are that as many as 20,000 persons heve turned to hitchhiking since the start of the strike. Generally, the survey showed, it is people in the lower income brackets who are most affected. Of families who make less than $6,000 a year, 55 per cent use the bus once a week or more. Of those making $6,000 to $12,000, 26 per cent use the bus. Of those making more than $12,000, only 23 pei" cent use the bus regularlv. Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS (MULTILUX.
