(AP) Many young men who fled to Canada rather than submit to tiie draft may be innocent ol any crime but don't know it, says a Hartford lawyer who has both defended and prose- cuted draft-evasion cases Paul Sherbacow, a former as- sistant United States attorney, said in an interview that "based on past case experience ,a sub- stantial number of these men would not face any real threat of successful prosecution. "My guess is that nationally less than 10 per cent of the jus- tice department's cases have been concluded by a con- viction." Sherbacow said many men who fled the country to avoid the draft were victims of proce- dural mistakes. "The law 'in the area of con- scientious objection changed so radically over the past five years that local selective serv- ice boards couldn't keep up with he said. Karl Ffeischmann, a law partner of Sherbacow's who also has handled draft cases, said that "the consequence of the failure of a draft board to follow lawful procedures is that an induction order which it is- sued may nevertheless be in- valid." Young men who are in Can- ada and do not want to return, said, could Ize their parents to receive a copy of their file from their lo- cal board. "The parents would then be in a position to seek legal ad- vice on their son's he said. Pensioners' income increased WILLIAMS LAKE, B.C. (CP) Human Resources Minister Norm Lcvi says about old age pensioners in British Colombia wffl get increased provincial income supplements this summer. The minister said pay- ments retroactive to April 1 will likejy be sent out in August to to more pen- sioners into the government's guaranteed minimum income ssistance program- Mr. Levi said the move, which win cost from mil- lion to -f L5 mfllian, follows com- from pensioners who were removed from the income program because of increased earnings in 1972. The provincial program, which was introduced last De- cember, guarantees needy pen- sioners a month. Pension benefits are related to earn- ings reported at the end of the fiscal year, ending March 31. Mr. Levi said thousands of be- cause of the method used to calculate their eligibility.

He said 90 per cent of the soy- beans were sold at harvest time for a bushel and now oth- er farmers are paving a bushel for soybean feed. Gordon MacEachern, presi- dent of the Agricuitureal Econ- omics Research Council, said: "It shows bow little a prices review board can do." He said as farm' incomes rise suppliers are raising their prices to take all the advant- age they can. Farm selling prices now are trapped above a new, higher cost floor and "re- viewing these costs wont low- er them." The price of seed grains, now in strong demand, went up 31.9 per cent in the first three months, Mr. Miller said. The farmers who grew that seed sold it to mills at last year's prices and the mills are taking the profit, he added. The cost of service industry sales went up three times as fast as food prices, the studies showed. Food prices increased 3.8 per cent while the cost of services, interest on mortgag- es and loans, property taxes and transportation-increased by 14.1 per cent. The studies showed that pric- es for farm machinery rose by only 1.4 per cent in the same period. Much of the increase in- cluded cost of improved ser- vice, introduced in laws in the Prairie provinces this year. Laws now stipulate three-year warranties on farm machinery and 72-hour repair service in all farming districts.
