COUNTRY WIDE HOMES LTD. 324-0566 Contact Brian Wilton, MurKtting Director Housing budget increased (CP) The federal government announc- ,ed Thursday it has budgeted billion for housing for 1975, up 12.5 per cent from the 1974 budget total. The money will be spent through a variety of loan, grant and subsidy programs to supplement private housing construction activity. The pro- grams are administered by Central Mortgage and Hous- ing Corp. Urban Affairs Minister Barney Danson said in a state- ment the government target is to have construction started on housing units this year. "In addition to providing a higher amount of moneyr for housing, the budget makes relatively higher allocations to those programs which are likely to produce quick starts and completions. "There is a heavier emphasis on housing for ren- tal to offset a sharp drop in production during 1975 and a decline in vacancy rates in major market Mr. Danson said. The target for starts of con- struction on housing units for 1975 is below the starts in 1974. Construction activity dropped off sharply jn the last half of 1974 and was the lowest since 1970, when there were starts. The total for 1973 was for 1972 it was and for 1971 it was A new report on vacancy rates is due Friday and is ex- pected to show that the rental housing situation is tight in most major cities. New types of grain to be planted WINNIPEG (CP) There will be a hefty increase in the numwr of prairie farmers growing new types of grain this year under the auspices of the Canadian Wheat Board's market development program. Plans for this year's contracting program an- ticipate the production of up 1.1 million acres of the new varieties. This contrasts with last year's program, when about acres were un- der contract. Eight varieties will be in- volved in this year's program three utility varieties of wheat, one variety of durum wheat, three varieties of malting barley arid a new type of oats. C. A. Gusberti, the wheat board's sales and market development director, says the program is designed to test the market reaction to the new varieties that are under development. As it is designed to encourage produc- tion of grain types which appear to have good sales potential. In 'a change from previous years, producer contracts for the 1975 production program will be issued by the wheat board and not by country elevator companies. Millions living in bondage NEW DELHI (CP) There are an estimated 45 million landless laborers in India. Most of them reportedly live in a state of bondage to landlords who provide huts for them and often keep them in debt. In such states as Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, landlords pay peasants about 42 cents a day for their labors. The In- dian government has promisr ed to cut up the big estates and break the grip of the landlords, but they have had little success so far. In the state of Bihar where 60 million people live, caste barriers and political disputes have reportedly kept the poor, especially the untouchable caste, in a perpetual state of bondage. Some 40 million peo- ple live below the poverty line and about 80 per cent of the population are illiterate. Many state governments in India do not relish taking any action against the big lan- downers because these wealthy men often contribute heavily to political parties. The landowners have shown little interest in .social development in their region, because it might strengthen the poor and inspire them to get out of bondage. As one observer noted, the key to the whole semi-feudal system is indebtedness. 'Gov't role in airline explained EDMONTON (CP) Internal operations of Pacific Western Airlines, such as exten- sions of service routes and new equipment purchases, do not come under the government's jurisdiction, Industry Minister Fred Peacock said Thursday. He made the com- ment during a question period in the Alberta legislature. To date, he said, the government simply stands, like a private investor, as controlling shareholder in Canada's third-largest airline. "Of course we're interested in seeing that the best possible ser- vices are provided." Asked by Bill Wyse (SC Medicine Hat) whether PWA's finan- cial statements would be tabled for MLA's scrutiny in the House, Mr. Peacock indicated he doesn't expect to produce any more infor- mation on the airline's financial status than the company would publish on its own if it were still privately-owned. "We have a double ob- jective for the Mr. Peacock said in an interview outside the House. "We want to see it run in such a way as to serve the best interests of the people of Alberta, British Columbia and the Northwest Territories. "And we want it to make a profit." The minister said the government has not decided on the possibili- ty of PWA becoming a crown corporation. Social Credit House leader Bob Clark said in an interview the government's handling of the airline it bought 'last summer was "totally 'unacceptable." Mr. Clark said that because the W6-million purchase involved public money, the government must accept full responsibili- ty for airline operations.
