U.S. Ceasefire Proposal Likely To Get Brushof f WASHINGTON (CP) The United States has proposed an- other plan for a ceasefire in the steadily-escalating Middle East conflict, despite widespread be- lief both here and abroad that the proposal will fare no belter than several unsuccessful pre- vious attempts. The question being debated now is whether the proposal based on previously rejected United Nations and private moves was made with genuine optimism or whether it is a stepping stone for other U.S. ac- as sale of more jet fighters to Israel. Only the U.S. defence plan- ners know for sure, but even hey have admitted there is 'only one chance in 20" the plan will succeed. The proposal, as announced without detail by State Secre- ary William Rogers last week, ras a "stop start talk- ng" move that called for a 90- day ceasefire among Israel, Cgypt and Jordan to be fol- owed by indirect peace talks through Gunnar Jarring, speci UN representative. This basically is a restat ment of the principles contain in the UN security council's re olution of Nov. 22, 1967. Israel immediately objecte to the ceasefire provision to cause it would give the Egyp ians time to rebuild the Su canal positions battered I daily Israeli air raids. Egyptian President Nass also rejected the plan, stating falls short of Arab objectives. While American motivation for launching a new plan th lacks any fresh elements is n clear, observers here suspe the plan has something to with the Israeli request to pu chase additional Phantom an Skyhawk jet fighter bomber from the U.S. Observers believe that Israe was assured that if the peac plan was not accepted, the U.S would supply the aircraft. Israel, on the other hand, ex pected more from the America plan than the sale of th Its happening in Alberta FAIRS EXHIBITIONS JULY 7-1 July Fair Calgary alto Calgary MacLeod Summer District Deer Deer Fair Colonial Indian 23 Augui! au 28 Augutt Hat Hat Auguit 31 -Augutt La Blche Pow-Wow La Blcha KEEP THIS LIST FOR HANDY Fttsanttd a j public tetvfce by Tf IT __ __ Jll S jets which they are convinced the U.S. would supply anyway few at a time on a replace- ment-for-loss basis. What the Israelis wanted was to get a public American com- mitment of support which the Arabs and the Soviet Union might read as a warning to des- ist from their attempts to end the present power balance in the area. The submission of the peace plan itself is viewed here as an indication the U.S. is getting more concerned about a possi- ble confrontation with the Soviet Union in the escalating conflict. The deployment of the Soviet Sam-3 missiles and the appear- ances of Soviet pilots'flying jets with Egyptian markings over; the heartland of Egypt havei caused concern here. So too has j :he recent crisis in Jordan and the escalation of fighting on both the Suez and Syrian fronts. One thing is certain. The plan will not meet with the approval >f Arab commando groups who lave vowed to wreck any peace proposal and they are a force .he Arab governments must reckon with in making any decision for peace.

Burton: Wildlife Policy Hangover From Old Days CALGARY (CP) Can- ada's multiplying city-dwell ers yearn for green gras under their feet and a view o the open sky. Canada's diminishing farm ers have lots of those com modifies, plus other products often hard to sell. Why don't farmers and ur >anites get together and do ome recreation the good of both sides? "I think farmers are being [eprived of an opportunity to reduce a product which irban people rat is says Gor- on Burton, president of the Vestern Stock Growers Asso- ciation.

"Perhaps more fundamen- tal, though, is the long-run po- sition of agriculture, and Al- berta is in the same position as Saskatchewan and Mani- toba' in this said the rancher. "We simply have more peo- ple in agriculture than we can expect to make a living com- parable to their urban cousins. There is a history of chronic overproduction of farm products in the devel- oped countries, and this is particularly true here in Al- berta." WANT GREEN GRASS Federal agricultural depart- ment officials had estimated "we will probably have in the decade of the 1970s twice as many farmers as can reason- ably be expected to make a good living." At the same time, Alberta "is urbanizing as rapidly as any province, and cities are having trouble raising suffi- cient cash for the services their people demand." "These people are anxious to get off the concrete and get back and enjoy green grass, cool water, trees and open sky. This leads us to the whole area of recreation." Eager hunters fan out from the cities in the fall. Farmers, however, have no incentive to maintain sloughs for water- fowl or cover for upland birds, or to encourage elk and deer to remain on their land. The farmers, in fact, have the opposite ance of wildlife is costly, and the intrusion of hunters incon- venient. "The difficulty is that our wildlife policy is based on the fiction that wildlife belongs to the Crown in the name of the said Mr. Burton. HANGOVER FROM PAST "This is a hangover from ihe days when grass was free and buffalo roamed the prai- rie. It is no longer true. If we are to continue to expand our game supply and recreational opportunity, for hunters, the >rovinces will have to recog- lize that game oh a piece of land belongs to the landowner. "I think the answer will lave to b- just as it is in Eu- rope, Britain and some of the American states that the andowner lease hunting ights to a group or club, or le might permit an individual a hunt on his property for either a fee or a set price per kill." The government would stiU et kill limits and hunting set- sons but unless the "farmer Benefits from supplying .the ame he's going to get out of lat business."
