The provincial ministers and their deputies have been conferring here for the last two days behind closed and a statement said egg marketing is continuing to oc- cupy a prominent position in the talks. The federal egg marketing board was formed last year after provincial disputes over egg prices and inter- provincial eggv trade. An agreement on provincial quotas was drawn up but was never signed. One provincial represen- tative said in an interview that the board faces a million deficit and is in danger of unless its financial problems can be solved. The statement said there was general support at the talks for the interim manage- ment committee established recently to operate the Cana- dian Egg Marketing Agency The ministers agreed to name provincial marketing agency representatives to a new committee that would be charged with reviewing CEMA's structure and operations. A Manitoba review of farm credit policies across Canada indicated that farmers in all provinces are finding it increasingly difficult to get the credit they need. Many provinces had developed their own credit to fill a void they felt was left by the Federal Farm Credit Corp.

In a 90- minute news Gis- card also promised to give a new style to the France's in- he said. He in- troduced a less formal atmos- phere to French presidential news conferences and appeared relaxed. Forces plan recruitment campaign QUEBEC The Cana- dian Forces need men and hope a special to be held Aug. 12 through Sept. will result in the recruitment of about soldiers and a few hundred officers. Major Michel Charrier said yesterday although military salaries are not as high as those in civilian the main attraction of military life is still adventure and travel. To sign up as a one needs eight years of good physical con- dition and be between 18 and 24 years of age. Officers must have the same age and physical but must have completed 12 years of schooling. Major Charrier said that persons with special skills in civilian life can be accepted up to 34 years of age. Salmon Arm student tops VICTORIA Brett Gordon Giles of B.C. is the winner of the governor general's silver medal as best Grade 12 student in the province with an average of 93.5 per cent on scholarship Education Minister Eileen Dailly said yesterday. She said the Salmon Arm high school student wrote ex- ams in chemistry and physics to win the award for top-ranking stu- dent to graduate this year from a B.C. high school. The ministers expressed concern that the FFCC is stressing credit for land tran- sactions and generally low- risk and appeared to be moving toward a relatively fixed clientele with long-term mortgage credit activity. The statement said there was a need for better co- operation in sharing the risks inherent in providing ade- quate credit to agriculture. The ministers decided to continue a study by provincial representatives into programs aimed to improve the health of cattle herds and keep losses of animals through disease to a minimum. The Alberta delegation led a discussion of provincial incen- tives for agricultural product and there was general agreement that agriculture and rural com- munities have a lot to gain from programs that add value to farm commodities by processing. In most provinces such programs are shared by two or more provincial departments. But there are involving federal policies of transpor- trade and that the ministers planned to discuss with federal officials.
