Temperatures plunge in Montana By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A fine winter's morning with temperatures in the 30s and 40s and newly fallen snow in the mountains. That was the situation in mid July Wednes- day as unseasonably cold arc- tic air covered Montana. "I think it's a rather thrilling sight for southern said a spokesman at Glacier Na- tional Park, where thousands of tourists were camped amid the splendor of snow covered peaks. The weather bureau said temperatures plunged to rec- ord lows for July in many areas of the state. At 37 degrees, Helena had the lowest Wednesday morning temperature in the nation, fol- lowed closely by Butte, Dillon and Livingston, each with 39 degrees, the weather bureau reported. The weather front brought general rain to lower eleva- tions and was welcome relief lo the drought striken crop- lands in the central part of the state. Agricultural officials report- ed that although the moisture came too late to help winter wheat, most spring seeded crops would benefit.

(CP) Close to members of the United SLeclworkers of America cm- ployed by Cominco Ltd. at Trail, Kimberley and Benson Lake will vote Friday on a contract offer from the com- pany, a union spokesman said Wednesday night. The union has been on strike at the Cominco plants since July 0. Union negotiators have rec- ommended acceptance o[ the proposed pact which calls for an across-the-board increase of 35 cents an hour in the first year and increases ranging from 25 to 35 cents in the sec- ond year. Journeymen would receive a 40 cent an hour increase in the first year. With world demand for feed grains increasing, the board is faced with a dilemma: Prairie farmers will not plant as much this year ant! the in- creasing domestic market will need a large percentage of what is grown. Earlier this year, it was es- timated barley acreage would be reduced by 11 per cent from last year with that sown to oats dropping by three per cent. Charles Gibbings o! Winni- peg, a board commissioner and former president of the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool, said he is concerned about being able to meet delivery targets. MUST FEED OWN One factor that might have a major impact is the amount of grains that fanners decide to keep to feed their own livc- slock. "It docs cause some Mr. Gibbings said. E. K. Turner o[ Regina, Saskatchewan Wheat Pool president, said it is a good "kind ot problem to have." "It is one ol worrying nbout filling markets rather than finding them." Mr. Turner, with other prai- r i e agriculture spokesmen, said price was a deterrent when prairie farmers decided on what crops to plant Ibis year. With the board free to sell below the floor price on the international market, a major income problem is faced by the farm community in feed grains, he said, unless "the initial price is established somewhere near the cost of production." NOT ENOUGH MONEY Stuart Thiesson ot Saska- toon, National Farmers Union secretary-treasurer, said pro- ducers have responded nega- tively to producing [eed-gvain crops because they "simply are not making enough money from them as they arc from growing wheat.'1 E. A. Boden of Regina, president of the Saskatchewan Federation o f Agriculture, said the board has made large advance sales by reducing the NEW OFFICE HOURS Monday thru Saturday inclusive a.m. to p.m. OPTOMETRISTS Drs. C. A. Palmer R. Fabbi A. Localelli 407 5th ST. S. LETHBRIDGE PHONE 327-4222 price "to what I think is an extremely low level." The largest reduction in feed-grain production is ex- pected in Saskatchewan with acreage down about 1.3 mil- lion acres. A. M. Runciman of Winni- peg, United Grain Growers president, said that balancing Ihe domestic and export mar- kets "doesn't mean we should back away from trying lo tac- kle it." He said there has been a tendency to overlook the growing domestic demand and "we have to accept that really what we are exporting is in excess of our own domes- tic requirements." Mr. Runciman said there was "almost panic" last fall when it was thought the C35- million-bushcl barley crop would drive the price "right down through the floor." "That all-time record crop is going lo disappear In the current year." Almost all prairie farm leaders urged farmers to in- crease feed-grain planting this year after the initial figures on proposed acreages were released.
