On the Prairies, haying Is general with only a fair yield reported. Much of Manitoba and Saskatchewan is dry while parts of Alberta have excessive moisture. Early seeded cereals are heading while later sown fields are in the shot-blade stage. Rapbseed is generally in bloom. Over-all, crops on the Prairies vary greatly in condition. Some insect damage is reported but no serious infestation. Throughout the Maritimes, crops and pastures are making good growth because of frequent rain and prospects are excellent for the tobacco crop in Prince Edward Island. In Quebec, below normal temperatures and heavy rainfall have retarded plant growth and increased wheat growth. Cold and wet weather ill Ontario produced an extremely slow growth with heavy damage to several crops. Cereal grains, however, appear to bo making satisfactory growth and should give a near-average yield. Warm, dry weather in British Columbia has resulted .in all crops progressing favorably. The situation lor the western provinces: Crops are fair to good, with most districts needing rain. Alfalfa and native hay yields are low in the Dominion City area and may force some farmers to reduce cattle numbers. Around Pilot Mound, sloi icross pi ever, hay varies from average to above-average. Grasshoppers are still the problem in the Stonewall area. Crop c o n d 1-Lions are generally fair. Despite scattered weekend showers, a general rain is required. Crops are deteriorating in the dry northwest. In the southeast ant the southwest, crops generally have recovered from moderate grasshopper and turnip beatlc problems. Barley is progress ing well but spring wheat is only fair and winter wheat is poor. Rapeseed is variable crop Dairies some damage from flea and red turnip beetles. Possible infestation of army worms Is being monitored. British Sweet cherries are being harvested in the southern Okanagan valley. Moderate-sized apple and anjou pear crops are expected while prospects are promising for bartlett pears, peaches, apricots and grapes. Corn and potato, crops are developing wel around Kamloops but most hay is poor quality. Cereal and forage crop yield's will likely be below normal in the east half of the Peace River block. ban is si WASHINGTON (AP) Th soft contact lens should b pulled off the market until i can be tested more thorough! by impartial scientists, a healt researcher told a Senate sub committee Thursday. Dr. Sidney Wolfe said th product has been rushed onto the market without adequat testing its safety and effcc tiveness. He accused some evaluator of "apparent conflict of inter est" by holding stock in th companies manufacturing th products they were testing. Wolfe is associated with tht Health Research Group, i branch of Ralph Nader's lens iggested sumer-advocacy organization, and formerly worked for the National Institute of Health. Testimony about the soft lens was prepared for a hearing before the Senate small business subcommittee on government regulations. The food and drug administration so far has approved for sale only the soft lens produced by Bausch and Lomb, but several other companies are moving into the field. Roughly pairs ot the lenses have been sold since the FDA approved them March 13, 1971. Buoyed by FDA approval Bausch and Lomb's stoc] zoomed in one period to from a share. NOT WELL TESTED Wolfe said a sample of 500 people fitted with Softens, the Bausch and Lomb product, showed that 118 gave them up, 104 complaining of poor vision. In addition, he alleged that some FDA consultants and industry-hired evaluators hole stock in companies Involve with soft lins production anc called for an investigation of the "apparent conflict of interest." Wolfe said one company, not Bausch and Lomb, offered stock and stock options to experts asked to evaluate its lens. The soft lens, dehydrated, is brittle. But in the eye, it he-comes fluid-like shaping itsel more precisely than the hard lens to the eye's surface. Dr. Stephen D. Brack of the National Institute of Health said soft lenses have a "special, bul limited place" but "in no way can they replace spectacles and hard contact lenses both o which have superior optical qualities." He agreed with Wolfe that testing has been inadequate.
