Lang: wheat board knows the score OTTAWA (CP) The oper- ation of the Canadian wheat board ensures that this country will never experience a domestic shortage of wheat, a situation now faced by the U.S., Otto Lang, minister responsible for the wheat board said Monday. Mr. Lang, in an interview, said the wheat board is "in- formed about everything that is happening and also in complete control of export commitments. "We really have full knowl- edge at all times as to whether we have exported so much that we should be slowing down or whether we can export more." Mr. Lang emphasized that although some movement of feed grain now is outside the board's pricing, it still is in control of wheat, oats and barley exports "That means the wheat board will have to take what our carryover and production is, subtract what they calculate what they think will likely be our domestic needs and see the balance as available for export." Mr. Lang said that in the U.S., there was "little knowl- edge or control over their ex- ports as against domestic needs." MORE SECURE POSITION The American problem developed because price determined "everything and if foreign buyers came in and bought a lot, in the end the Americans might have to buy it back at a higher price." Mr. Lang said that's the way the open market works It was a matter of judgment. "We're in a far more secure position than that and, of course, the question now is whether any Canadian wheat goes down to the U.S. and I think that is highly specula- tive." Mr. Lang said the wheat board will judge whether a particular offer should be accepted, "but you really can't speculate at this moment whether the price and transportation facilities would be available to make the move." The minister said the U.S. has some philosophic resistance to establishing a wheat board-type operation and "I appreciate how useful it is to have our type of system where there is full knowledge." Ottawa should Manitoba False imprisonment not have to foot the bill TORONTO (CP) Finance Minister John Turner says the federal government should not bear the full cost of subsidizing eastern oil prices, or raise equalization payments to provinces to reflect rising oil royalties in Alberta. He told the Canadian Club Monday that it could cost more than billion to cushion eastern consumers against higher prices of imported oil. It would cost another bil- lion if the federal government were to agree to raise equal- ization payments to match higher oil royalties flowing to the Alberta government as a result of higher oil prices. "I don't like a solution requiring the cost of a price shelter and the cost of equalization to be taken out of Energy crisis may benefit Glacier Park GLACIER NATIONAL PARK, Mont. (AP) The superintendent of Glacier National Park says the energy crisis may work to the benefit of park visitors this summer. 'William Briggle said park officials expect visitors this summer to stay longer, getting away from their automobiles and doing more hiking and bicycle riding. He also noted that for the first time this summer the park will provide a bicycle rental service through its concessions. the pockets of rather than from the pool of revenue that has suddenly become available because of those higher prices." In the text of his speech, re- leased to reporters before delivery, he did not say whether he wants the oil companies or the Alberta government to share the cost of subsidizing eastern consumers. But he reiterated the point he made at a conference of finance ministers last week that he opposes increased equalization payments linked to higher oil prices. TO GET FUNDS Prime Minister Trudeau and the provincial premiers agreed last week that Quebec and the Atlantic provinces would receive federal funds until March 31 to prevent further widening of the price difference between imported and domestic crude oil. But there is still no agree- ment on how subsidies would be financed after March 31, in the period when the price of domestic oil will be permitted to rise. The eastern provinces have been pressing for subsidies as well as increased equalization payments, which go to all provinces except Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia. SURPRISE FOR EMBASSY MEXICO CITY (AP) The Chinese Embassy recently subscribed to a 'local new- spaper and found out this week it won a furnished home and a car in the weekly lottery for new subscribers. It was not known what the embassy would do with the prizes. Hawaii motorists line up for gas HONOLULU (AP) Hawaii motorists faced shorter gasoline lines Monday, the first day of a mandatory rationing plan aimed at reducing long lines at island service, stations. Spot checks by reporters and police showed only a few cars in line at most service stations shortly after opening. At some stations motorists still lined up in the early- morning darkness several hours before the stations opened. But these lines were considerably shorter than during the last few weeks. A spokesman for acting Gov. George Ariyoshi said: "We should know by the end of the week whether this plan will work." Officials also are awaiting a decision by federal officials on their request for more gasoline. RATIONING PLAN Under the rationing plan only vehicles with licence plates ending in even numbers and gas tanks one-quarter full or less were serviced Monday. Vehicles with odd-numbered licence plates can fill up Tuesday. The alternate-day plan will be in effect daily except Saturday and Sunday, when no gasoline will be sold except to emergency vehicles. The plan also calls for stations to open at 6 a.m. or earlier, and to close between peak morning and afternoon traffic hours. The rationing applies only to populous Honolulu County, where gasoline lines were as long as two miles last week. The state's other three counties have been exempted because they have developed their own emergency plans. The plan will be in effect for 120 days, but Ariyoshi said he will seek legislative authority to continue it if necessary. Nixon on TV WASHINGTON (AP) President Nixon plans to send Congress a lengthy, written report on the administration's domestic policy the same day he makes his state of the union address to a nationally broadcast joint session of the House and Senate, a spokesman said Monday. Gerald Warren said the written document will expand upon the president's 6 p.m. MST Wednesday address. North-south Montana rail route sought HELENA, Mont. (AP) A resolution seeking establishment of a north-south passenger railroad through Montana has advanced to the floor of the State Senate-.

The resolution seeks rail passenger service from Canada to Mexico, passing through Butte, Helena, Great Falls and Shelby Government officials, railroad officials and railroad workers have expressed support for the measure. cabinet claim rejected shuffled WINNIPEG (CP) Manitoba Premier Ed Schreyer announced a major shift in cabinet responsibilities Monday just four days before the opening of the 1974 session of the legislature. In the shuffle, which had been predicted for several days, Urban Affairs Minister Saul Miller becomes minister of health and social development and Health Minister Rene Toupin takes over the portfolio of tourism, recreation and cultural affairs. Former tourism minister Larry Desjardins, who lost his seat in the legislature in the provincial election last June 28, had resigned from the cabinet last week. The premier announced Monday that Mr. Desjardins has been appointed chairman of the Manitoba Health Services Commission at an annual salary of In addition, Mr. Schreyer said he would personally assume responsibility for the urban affairs post previously held by Mr. Miller. MILWAUKEE, Wis. (AP) "I'm not said Ed- ward Kanieski after his 000 false-imprisonment claim was rejected. "I want to for- get the past." Kanieski was released in 1972 after spending 20 years in prison on a first-degree murder conviction. The Wis- consin Supreme Court ruled he was convicted on circum- stantial evidence not suf- ficient to warrant a finding of guilty. His claim of false imprisonment was rejected earlier this month by the State Claims Board. "I was a little Kanieski, 55, said yesterday of the rejection. "I figure I should of got something for what I he said in a telephone interview. "My family grew up without me. My wife is in a mental institution. I lost my property and my health. I had nothing when I came home." Kanieski was 34 when con- victed and sentenced to life in prison in 1952 for the first-de- gree murder of Clara Bates. The 76-year-old woman was found beaten and strangled in her room adjoining a tavern she operated in rural Grand Rapids, Wis.
