National Marketing Boards Are Not Compulsory: Olson LONDON, Ont. (CP) The federal government will not try to "ram down the throats of Ca- nadian farmers, agri-business and consumers" the concept of organized national marketing boards, Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson said Saturday. Speaking to representatives at a Canadian Seed Growers' Asso- ciation meeting, Mr. Olson said if the producers don't want a national agency for their com- modity, they won't get one. Legislation introduced in the Commons this spring is not would simply set up the machinery that would en- able producers to form thei own national marketing boards he said. The minister told delegates o the organizatio that it is not "necessarily wise to try to set down what th makeup of national marketm agencies should be." Representation o n nations agencies will vary from one commodity to anothe and some agencies might legiti mately have a higher proportion of representation from the proc essing side than would certain other agencies.

That fact of urban life, be- coming steadily more important SB buildings keep getting taller, is going to be dug into by a Uni- versity of Ottawa research pro- ject.

Shields, 35, a civil engineer. foundations for tall be con- structed in dense sand and then tested over a three year pro- gram. The idea is to ascertain the maximum and minimum safety requirements for different types of soil being required to bear the weight of skyscrapers.

"Instead, protein grading rail merely be an additional or sup- plemental quality guarantee fo some buyers who find this guar- antee important." NOT GOOD ENOUGH He said simple protein grad- ing alone would not be an ade- quate quality standard and al- though the government intends to improve Canada's competi- tive position on the grain mar- ket, it will also be careful to preserve the advantages al- ready in the current grading system. The minister referred to the need for quality control of seed varities and he said that by opening Ihe door to all varieties of seeds the domestic and inter- national markets could be en- dangered. "I have no doubt that some of you gentlemen could reap sub- stantial profits it' we opened the door to the licensing of all vari- eties. But while there would be short-term profits on an obscure and ujiproven seed, there could also be long-term losses that might be disastrous for the agri- cultural economy. "Farmers could be hood- winked by less-than-honest oper- ators, and as a result consum- ers would be frustrated and market would be lost-perhaps he said.

(AP) A surgeon who removed a 15-hy- 10-inch tumor from a hemophi- liac man says the nine-hour op- eration shows that surgery can be performed on such patients. "I think this will demonstrate to the world that major surgery on a hemophiliac is really a lot safer than it is now thought to Dr. Marshall J. Orloff, chairman of the department of surgery at the University of California San Diego Medical School, was the head surgeon in' the operation performed Thurs- day on Elwin L. Kennedy. He said the cyst extended from the jatient's diaphragm to his pel- is. Dr. Orloff said the recent de- velopment and current avail- ability of a protein known as AHG, or antihemophih'ac globu- lin, made it. possible to operate and yet keep Kennedy from deeding to death. He said Kennedy, 38, devel- oped the tumor four years ago as a result of spontaneous bleeding from his right upper hip bono. Kennedy's cyst was attached to his aorta, liver, intestine and several other organs, Dr. Orloff said, and had destroyed the right kidney and part of his right hip bone.
