Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, July 19, 1973 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAIO SZ Crops need rain OTTAWA (CP) Hot windy weather is aggravating already dry conditions in "rather exten- sive areas" of the Prairie grain belt, but crop prospects in the remainder are favorable, Statis- tics Canada reported Wednes- day. In the fourth of six'reports on crops conditions across the country, the statistics bureau said rain is needed hi south- western Alberta, southwestern and west-central Saskatchewan and western Manitoba. Elsewhere on the Prairies, however, crops are developing well and the prospects for good yields are promising. Grains are developing heads and oil- seeds are bursting into bloom. In British Columbia, crops have been benefitting from con- tinuing warm weather though pasture growth has been re- tarded somewhat because of a dry spring and early summer. B.C. hay fields have yielded less than average. On the Pa- cific coast, a good early potato crop has been lifted and the greenhouse tomato and cucum- ber crops are nearly finished. The strawberry harvest has finished and raspberries, logan- berries and blueberries are now being picked. Yields are re- ported average. Inland, in the Okanagan Val- ley of B.C., the cherry harvest has passed its peak and good crops of apricots and peaches are being picked. The main apple and pear crops are ma- turing satisfactorily and an in- creased yield is predicted for both. Prairie crop conditions by provinces: Alberta: Strong winds and high temperatures are hurting crops in the southwest and rain is urgently needed. But eastern Alberta crops are recovering well from a long dry spell in May and June. Manitoba: Conditions range from good to excellent in most of the province, but the western half needs rain. Early cereal crops are filling with seeds well. Rapeseed crops are form- ing pods and canning peas are being harvested. Another in- festation of army worms is ex- pected to hit rapeseed crops later in the summer. Saskatchewan: Crops in the north and northeast are grow- ing well but pockets in the southern two thirds of the prov- ince are gripped by drought, particularly the Swift Current region. Hot windy weather there Is rapidly destroying crops.

No badgering of farmers By PAUL JACKSON Heraid Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Justice and Wheat Board Minister Otto Lang Wednesday denied sugges- tions by an Alberta MP that the Canada Wheat Board is deliber- ately harrassing and badgering unfortunate grain farmers. Ged Baldwin (PC Peace River) referred in the House of Commons to damage caused to farmers' crops in northern areas last year by bad weather. Mr. Baldwin, the Con- servative House leader, charged that the wheat board has started hundreds of court cases in an attempt to get thousands of dollars from unfortunate farmers who accepted cash ad- vances for gram and then lost their crops and were unable to deliver. Mr. Lang said he had looked into such charges and had been told by the board that in fact the people it was going after had been in debt to the board for a number of years. Later, Mr. Lang assured Don Mazankowski (PC Vegreville, Alta.) that the minister was aware of farmers fears that a national rail strike would se- verely disrupt grain trans- portation. Mr. Mazankowski urged Mr. Lang to have talks with both Labor Minister John Munro and Transport Minister Jean March- and on the subject and to do whatever he could to prevent strike. While Mr. Lang said he "wasn't going to speculate on tiie impact of a hypothetical sit- the minister did say the government was well aware of the harm a strike would do to grain movement. Former Calgary mayor named EDMONTON (CP) ap- pointment of former Calgary mayor Jack Leslie as chair man of the Alberta Boundaries Advisory Committee was an- nounced today by the provin- cial government. Mr. Leslie, a Calgary alder man from 1961 to 1965 and mayor from 1963 to 1969, is president of a real estate con suiting company. 324 13th STREET NORTH PRO NORTH LETHBRIDGE "YOUR PRO STORE FOR I HARD-TO-FIND HARDWARE" PHONE 328-4441 POINTS THE WAY TO GREAT SAVINGS ON THESE TIMELY PRICED ITEMS ELECTRIC LAWN 3 GREAT MODELS TO CHOOSE FROM GENERAL ELECTRIC ELECTRIC LAWN MOWERS TWO MODUS TO CHOOSE FROM MOOR PM63.

PRO PRICE 75 .77 Strike notice served VANCOUVER (CP) The International Associat ion of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) Local 764 serv- ed strike notice to CP Air Wed- nesday that a strike of machinists will take place July 25 at 12 noon PDT. The strike will affect machin- ists at Montreal, Toronto, Win- nipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, and as far north as Whitehorse, as well as hi Vancouver, where there are about machin- ists. Tony Steele, chief negotiator for IAM Local 764, said earlier this week CP Air workers are determined not to settle for less than the 19.6 per cent over two years wage increase company negotiators offered several months ago but then withdrew. Mr. Steele said the senior CP Air officials withdrew the of- fer, which 14 lion negotiators were prepared to recommend, because the company felt Air Canada workers would settle for less. Following a series of rotating strikes last month, mem- bers of the union at Air Can- ada voted to accept a 16 per cent wage increase.
