In a regular report on crop conditions, the bureau outlined a mixed hag of weather and growing conditions compiled Tuesday night by correspondents across the country. Despite generally wet conditions which slowed crop development, hindered summer fallowing, spraying and ruined some hay, cereal crops on the Prairies now are heading 1 oilseed crops are in bloom. Southeastern Albert a and small areas of southwestern and south central Saskatchewan, however, are urgently in need of more rain. A special rust report says development of the disease has been slower than expected. Severe damage from rust is unlikely. Conditions by province: Alberta: Warmer temperatures last week ended an extended period of cool wet weather in all parts of the province but the southe astern where crops are deteriorating from lack of moisture. The cool weather has set back crops many areas about 10 days.

Bo'.h men ar'e to stand trial this fall for hte kidnap slaying of Pierre Laporte, labor minister of Quebec. The association said in a statement Wednesday that a letter of complaint was sent July 8 to Justice Minister Jerome Cho-quette following a visit to the pair's Quebec Provincial jail cells cells by Yvon Jasmin, head of the bar association, and another lawyer. In the letter, Mr. Jasmin said that although the regular QPP cells and prisoners' fresh air recreation area are on the 10th and 13th floors of the QPP head-quailers building in east-end Montreal, the cells of Rose and Lortie are on the fourth floor. Furthermore, R o s e 's cell lacked the standard table and chair found in loth-floor cells. Mr. Jasmin said Rose had been in isolation for six months and Lottie since Nov. 6, Laporh "Both complained bitterly of this isolation which they consider the letter said, "and they demand the right to bfi treated like the other prisoners." Lortie, 19, seemed to be suffering from "nervous depression." "His parents are poor people living in Gaspe and he has not received any visits since his incarceration. The association said the letter was made public because two weeks had passed and case changes had been made at the jail. Paul Rose, 27, brother of Jacques, and Francis Simard, 23, have already been convicted mid sentenced to life imprisonment for the murder of Mr. La-porte. death DELIA 'CP) Kory Dale Marshall, 2, of Delia was killed Wednesday when he was run over by a tractor driven by his sather on then- southern Alberta farm. nnlin'ps and nrnerammps ran rraatp a 37 days adrift PORT MORESBY, New Guinea 'AP) A Canadian Homan Catholic priest who drifted with six Filipinos in the South Pacific for 37 days said today they stayed alive "by prayer, a few fish and some rainwater."

The Progressive Conserva- tive chief exchanged views on trade and economic matters with officials of Japan's Fed- eration of Economic Organiza- tions. Officials quoted Stanfield as saying his country seeks more trade with Japan because its economic ties with Britain will slacken after British entry in the European Economic Com- munity. 3tanfield also told the Japa- nese be hopes Japan will im- port more pro c e s s e d goods from Canada, officials said. Federation leaders, including its president, Kogoro Uemura, expressed satisfaction over the threefold increase of Japanese exports to Canada in the last seven years. Stanfield, accompanied by two aides, is on an eight-day visit to Japan, preceding a trip to r.ainland China. He plans to leave for Hong Kong Thursday en route to Peking.

He said they were heading for an island to take part in a religious ceremony but the en- gine broke down 30 minutes alter leaving Caburan. They began drifting eastward "praying every day that God would look after us-" FACE TYPHOON Father Loiselle said his companions, 11 to 27 year's old, were frightened after the first few days when they were caught in the eye of a typhoon and 25-foot waves nearly swamped their small boat. Occasionally they saw is- lands on the horizon but no ships. "We tried to forget our very desperate situation by praying and looking to the future rather than worrying about the said the priest. When the Japanese freighter appeared outheast of the Carolines, "we waved ev- erything we could put our hands on to make sure the crew saw us. "We are all feeling quite well now.

Construction wages rise OTTAWA (CP} Average construction wages rose another three-tenths of one per cent last month, putting them more than 10 per cent higher than a year earlier.

Most Japanese j feel economic growth no help TOKYO (Reuter) The rapid economic growth exacted in terms of destruction of the envi- ronment, rising costs and men- tal stresses make a majority of Japanese feel they are no better off today than before, an official j government report said. j The report, compiled by the economic planning agency, said Japan should give top priority to the welfare of its people and not to further economic expan- sion. The white paper said that the rapid growth policy no doubt played ii giant role in raising the standard of living to the point now for housing and social services-Ja- pan has reached the level of ad- vanced industrialized nations- But this has brought higher prices, a decline in safety, ruin of the environment and in- creased psychological strains, it said. As a result, the majority of the Japanese people feel they are no better off than they used to be despite the increases in in- come brought nbout by eco- nomic growth, the report said. INDUSTRIAL VISITORS In more than 230 foreign industrialists visited Ontario to study business opportunities available to them. for growth. But Governments can't legislate public confidence. Nor can they control the private initiative and enterprise which will finally determine how far and how fast Canada grows. That's up to individual Canadians. People. A guaranteed investment The history of Canada was written by genera- tions of tough, self-reliant people who came here with the same determina- tion to build something worthwhile. Think of the incredible difficulties that faced the immigrants who first settled here. Read about the Canadians who literally forged this country together a hun- dred years ago, in mile after impossible mile of railroad track. And remember the challenge of Expo '67. How many people even dreamed that Canadians could put on the greatest show the world has ever seen? People like that are still the most important resource we have. Un- employment is a waste of that resource a waste that affects every one of us, at every income level. If we can find enough confidence in ourselves to grow the jobs we need, we'll all be bettei off for it. As a nation, we'll be producing more and selling more. As individuals, we'll be earning more and buying more. Something else. When we give people a chance to build a chance to fulfill themselves also give them pride and a sense of achievement. And those are gifts too valuable to be measured in dollars and cents. What are our chances? Most economists agree that Canada is beginning a new period of growth. In the past year, we've contained inflation more .successfully than any other country with a free economy. Things are moving. Companies are expand- ing. Opportunities are opening up. But we can still do much better. How much better depends on all of us; on how much we want to succeed. We have the people. We have the skills. Now we'll find out if we also have what it takes to make use of them. What Canada Manpower Centres can do. Canada Manpower is the operating arm of the Department of Manpower and Immigration, re- sponsible for the devel- opment and utilization of our human resources. In other words, their business is matching people with job oppor- tunities. Last year, for example, they helped more than Canadians find work. There are 390 Canada Manpower Centres across the country, all linked by Telex so that they work together as one cohesive force. They can arrange the training and retraining of workers and help them relocate in opportunity areas. They also have access to the researchers, the economists and the statisticians needed by business and industry to take full advantage of existing opportunities and to create new ones. Canada Manpower Centres are there to help every way they can. What Canadian businessmen can do. Our economy, depends on the enterprise and energy of the private sector to create new wealth and employment. There has rarely been a better time (or a more urgent need) to translate that fact into meaningful action. Now at the beginning of an economic up-turn. Now when thousands of skilled people are ready and anxious to go to work. Now when there are Government programmes available to help with all kinds of business expansion plans. Canada's economic future is very much in your hands. The real stimulus for growth must come from your initiative and your con- fidence in the future of this country. What Canadian workers can do. If you think Canada Manpower Centres are just for unemployed people, you're wrong. A Canada Manpower Centre is also the place to go if you're under- employed. If you're in- terested in learning a new trade or up-grading your present skills the counsellors there can tell you all about Govern- ment sponsored re- training programmes. (In these days of constant technological change, they can make all the difference in the world to your And if you want to find out about employment opportunities in other parts of the country Canada Manpower is the place to get answers. If you fit any of these categories, and haven't already registered with a Canada Manpower Centre, then do so now. What the Canadian people can do. Start by examining your own attitudes in the bright light of Canada's current economic prospects. Right now, personal savings are at a ten-year high. Which simply means that people have been careful about spending as people always are when times are difficult. There's much less reason for that caution today. What's needed now is the kind of confidence that will persuade people to make those expen- ditures they've been post- poning. Because when people start spending, manufacturers will be encouraged to expand into new markets and new product areas. That's what keeps the economy moving. And that's what grows jobs. Have we got what it takes to grow the Jobs we need? Manpower Main-d'ceuvre and Immigration et Immigration Olto Lang, Minister OltoLang, mlnislre ;
