The Wheat Reserves Act, under which the federal govern- ment paid storage charges on wheat in excess of 178 million bushels and on which payments have averaged million a year since 1956, will end ait the July 31 end of the crop year current when Parliament gives its approval. Payments of the million transitional fund, on the basis of an acre to a maximum ot 640 eligible acres, will begin within a few days after the measure gets royal assent. Collection of farmers' prem- iums under the grain receipts stabilization program will begin at a date to be fixed by regula- tion, perhaps a couple of weeks after the legislation is passed. Mr. Lang said he had hoped o get the entire package ap- roved at the spring session and in operation by the start of the 971-72 crop year Aug. 1. The minister spoke at a news onference in the first of a ser- es of western appearances to xplain the federal govern- nent's new grain policies. The stabilization program, ft- anced by a two-per-eent levy n fanners' gram sales and ouble that amount in federal contributions, is designed to maintain producers' over-al ;rain receipts at a five-year av rage level. At the start, indi- ridual premiums will be limited o a ceiling of in sales.

Mr. Strom, in a policy paper, said Alberta will go further than recommenda- tions of (he fedefal royal com- mission on bilingualism and bi- culluralism by promoting study of the language, history and literature of cultural groups. The policy paper was pre- sented to delegates at a gov- ernment house conference on multiculturalism.

In Damascus, guerrilla leader Yasser Arafat said fighting be- veen the army and the com- mandos had continued into its ourth straight day. Jordanian authorities, mean- while, said in Amman that the army had forced the comman- os out of their last stronghold n Jordan and moved them to an unpopulated area overlook- ng the ceasefire line with Is- ael.

Indians need for senator, MP representative urged ,'eek coincided closely with gov- irnment guidelines issues in March. The guidelines suggested a maximum of 20 million acres of wheat plantings and the DBS figure was 18.7 million. Sixteen million acres of barley was rec- ommended compared with 9.5 million last year in an attempt to build up an inventory, and the DBS figure was 14.6 million. A sharp increase in rapeseed acreage had been estimate now is 5.4 million, up from four million last Mr. Lang said he considered this increase "a reasonable gamble" in view of good mar- tet outlook. He said the government has o intention of placing flax, lapeseed and rye under the marketing authority of the wheat board until producers lave enough information to make a decision. REGINA (CP) Canadian Indians must be represented in Ottawa by a Member of Parlia- ment and a Senator for each region if they are ever to par- ticipate effectively, George Manuel, president of the Na- tional Indian Brotherhood, said Thursday. He told the brotherhood meeting that representation would be to protect rights and not be a substitute or a means of surrender to government au- thority. "We can get more mileage when Indians are directly rep- resented by Indian people be- cause they would be subject to pressure of Indian he said. In New Zealand, the native Police seize million heroin haul VANCOUVER (CP) Bail of was set Thursday for Joseph Dnnzelli, 39, of Van- couver, one of three persons charged earlier in the day after police seized heroin valued at more than million on the illicit market. Donzelli, his 27-year-old wife, Maria, and Jack Stone, 54, alias Jacob Lenhardt, were charged with possession of nar- cotics for the purpose of traf- ficking after police seized 11 pounds of heroin. Bail for Maria Donzelli was set at Bail for Stone was to be set today. Police said the heroin seiz- ure, described as the largest in Vancouver, came after severe months of investigation into an alleged drug distribution ring on the lower British Columbia mainland. The heroin was found In plas tic bags, each containing on< ounce, police said.

Proposals from the confer- ence and the policy paper will jo to an interdepartmental lommittee of government offi- cials to co-ordinate and imple- ment tho program. Mr. Strom also proposed a IS- member ethnic advisory coun- cil to assist the government committee. Alberta is a multicultural so- ciety and the government in- tends to "initiate new programs to improve cultural opportuni- ties and preserve and develop this unique he said. "The diversity of our popula- tion demands it, as does the in- creased emphasis on develop- ing human potential to the full- est." Mr. Strom is on record at federal-provincial constitution- al conferences opposing the federal French-English two- language principle because it ignores other ethnic groups. Among specific proposals in the policy paper was an offer incentive grants to school joards to encourage study of econd languages, "until such, une as the new climate of opin- n which we hope will emerge rom our multicultural taitia- ves becomes prevalent."

The aboriginal mem- jers sit on the opposition side of he House. "The Maoris are more sophis- icated than Canadian Indians on a mass he said. "We have sophisticated leaders, but hey have developed so quickly jecause of politics." Canadian Indians should push or one Indian member to be elected from each of the Mari- imes, Quebec, Ontario, the irairies, British Columbia and he territories, he said. Prince Edward Island with a popula- tion of has four MPs while there are twice as many Indian people in Canada with- out any direct representation. Mr. Manuel said he believes Indian Affairs Minister Jean Chretien's spring tour of New Zealand and Australia was an attempt to find reasons to sup- port the government's white paper on Indian policy, which the government "promised to shelve two years ago." Provincial leaders also should watch for a possible transfer of Indian housing from Indian affairs to Central Mortgage TORONTO (CP) Peter Lougheed, leader of Alberta's Progressive Conservative party, said Thursday he thought French-speaking Albertans were justified in feeling jeopardized by the Imposition of provincial jurisdiction on legal language rights. Mr. Lougheed, speaking on the CBC television program Encounter, said he felt that it had been a mistake to impose legal rights in that area. "I think we have created a back- lash here in Alberta against this sort of thing. "I would rather see when we deal with languages that we get away from the compulsory legal side of it and we try to make languages much more something people want to learn and to do. "In that way I think we can maintain the multi -cultural strength we've got here in Al- berta, at the same time having people learn French because they want to learn French, and get away from being hung up on that as a legal issue. That's where my objection is."
