Settlement near in eviction case EDMONTON (CP) The mechanics of a settlement be- tween North West Trust Co. and Martin Rombs that will allow the Fairview farmer to keep his land should be com- leted next week, agriculture minister-Hugh Homer said yes- terday. Dr. Homer repeated past statements that it was "impor- tant that no public announce- ment bo made regarding bow it was settled." "Everybody had to move Dr. Homer said of the situation in which Mr. Roinos faced eviction from bis land after falling behind in mort- gage payments. Mr. Rombs borrowed from North West Trust in 1964 to buy six quarters of land, and was faced with eviction for failing to meet mortgage pay- ments after three crop failures. The trust company said he had paid but interest at 8.7S per cent and late-payment charges accumulated until he owed Dr. Homer has said the agri- culture development fund will be the "main instrument" in the settlement, which involves changes in Mr. Rombs' fann- ing operation. Treaty signatures may be fraudulent YELJUOWKNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) A special hearing into Indian claims on square miles of the Northwest Terri- tories was told Tuesday that some signatures on the two con- troversial treaties could be fraudulent Rev. Rene Fmnoleau, a Ro- man Catholic missionary who has researched the history of Treaties 8 and 11, said most of the Indian signatures on the documents wcsic a simple X. He told Mr. Justice Morrow of the Northwest Territories Su- preme Court that three of the marks on Treaty 8 were "tool firm and unlike the other Indian signatures which were shakey. Falter Fumoleau, wbo has lived with Indians in the Terri- tories for 20 years, said be has researched the treaties and sup- porting documents i n the Na- tional Archives in Ottawa and looked through extensive Angli- can and Roman Catholic records. The bearing is to determine whether the Indian Brotherhood of the Northwest Territories can register with the land titles of- fice a legal declara- tion of tbeir Ibe lands they Thursday, July 12, THI UTHMIDOI HMAID West needs immigrants OTTAWA (CP) Western Canada needs more if it is to broaden its economic and social opportunities, says Justice Minister Otto Lang. Declining western population, now about six million compared with a national population of 22.1 million, is "one of the big- gest, single concerns" of the re- gion, he says in a background paper prepared for a speech to the July 13-15 liberal confer- ence in Vancouver. "Our concern for this prob- lem is the basic reason behind plans for stabilization and di- versification and agriculture and for proposals for new indus- trial developments In -the West." Mr. Lang says studies in- dicate the country as a whole does not need a rapid popu- lation increase. National popu- lation policies should be ones of stabilization or consolidation, allowing a maximum net immi- gration figure of a year. Net annual immigration now is 60.000. About Immi- grants enter the country each year, but about leave as emigrants. "However, our immigration policies must have within them a fine tuning mechanism in or- der that varying regional needs are satisfied. "While the Niagara pennln- sula and the St. Lawrence Val- ley might not require additional population, the same is not true for western Canada." Mr. Lang said westerners do not want to transform their cities into western Torontos or Montreals. But a broader popu- lation base was necessary to improve economic and social opportunities and help support professional sport and cultural activities. Mr. Lang said the principle "must be clearly established that the West requires an in- creased population base, not one that is merely stabilized or consolidated. Dairymen angling for price boost OTTAWA (CP) Dairymen are pressuring the government for another price increase for manufacturing .milk, arguing that rising feed and labor costs makes an immediate increase "absolutely essential." Prices for milk used to make butter, cheese and milk powder should rise 17 to 20 per cent, or a hundredweight, to com- pensate for cost increases, the Dairy Fanners of Canada said Wednesday. Farmers- now net between and a .hundredweight EOT manufacturing milk. In March, the government au- thorized an increase of 60 cents a hundredweight for such milk through boosts in Canadian Dairy Commission support, or guaranteed, prices for butter, cheese and powder. At the same time, it iincreased by 20 cents-to direct sub- sidy paid to farmers for each one hundred pounds of manu- facturing milk. But the extra 20 cents ac- tually was eaten up by an in- crease in a levy charged dairy farmers to offset costs of selling powdered milk on export mar- kets. Roland Pigeon, president of the Dairy Fanners of Canada, said in a news release that farmers expect Increases "in the very near future" and sug- gested that prices to farmers could rise through a com- bination of increased consumer prices, a cut in levies and higher direct government sub- sidies. The government now provides dairy farmers with annual sub- sidies totalling million. Dairy prices have been rising for a number of months now, contributing to the over-all rise in food costs that rose two per cent between May and June. In the last year, food prices have risen by 16.7 per cent. singers robbed while on stage KINGSTON (CP) One of the attractions of Home- coming Week was a 55-mem- ber teen-age singing group from Trenton, Ont., whose motto is Love, Honesty and Brotherhood. While they were on stage, somebody stole seven wal- lets, and a watch from buses. Drug-knife war erupts in streets VANCOUVER (CP) There is a "war" in progress on Van- couver streets with knives. Police say the war, still small-scale but raging fiercely, is between narcotics pushers and small-time drug pedlars. It started when the pushers began using knives to "rip off" the lowly pedlars of their ille- gal wares and profits. The ped- lars countered by arming them- selves with knives for protec- tion. It is all part of a situation which has developed since laws against begging and carrying knives removed from the Criminal code, a police man said yesterday. The drug-knife war and, the presence on the streets of gangs of begging youths who display knives to intimidate passers-by, have prompted city council to consider adopting a bylaw to ban the carrying of knives on city streets. The situation is growing pro- gressively worse, police said, particularily since thugs can flaunt their weapons openly without fear of arrest PARKS' AREA Total land mass in Canada's national parks system is about square miles.
