Radio-Canada French Network Faces Problem TORONTO (CP) The Globe and Mail says there is growing dissension in the newsrooms and studios of Radio-Canada's French network. In a story from Montreal, the newspaper says the dissension might be aggravated by the ap- pointment of Ray Chaisson, English-speaking producer, as assistant news director for the Quebec region. He takes over his new position Aug. 1. The newspaper says the ap- pointment of Mr. Chaisson came as a surprise because his first language is English and his edu- cation snd broadcasting experi- ence have been in English-.

"I want that matter settlec he told negotiators for the IWA and FIR, saying he was not going to let a "minority group" in a "small picayune dispute" hold up negotiations for men. A union spokesman said Tuesday night the problem was being resolved, with, an an- nouncement expected today. The Tahsis workers walked out eight days ago, claiming they were supporting a stand by 000 B.C. construction workers against compulsory arbitra- tion. The construction workers re- turned to work Monday, but the Tahsis employees remain- ed out. Meanwhile, construction me- diator William Sands, British Columbia's deputy :labor min- ister, made his recommenda- tions Tuesday for settlement of the carpenters' union dispute with the Construction Labor Relations Association, but de- tails were withheld pending a vote by both sides. Tlie wage proposal was un- derstood to be more than the 51.20 an hour offered earlier by :he CLRA and rejected by the carpenters.

At the same time, the indus- try rejected all contract pro- posals submitted by the IWA, saying they would cost the in- dustry an estimated mil- ion. The union wants a lour increase on the basic rate rf plus improved fringe jenefits. The FIR brief claimed work toppages by IWA members during the two-year contracl erm that expired in June to- ailed man hours. It said employer employee rela- ions had deteriorated because f illegal stoppages.

Crop Prospect Outlook Good CALGARY (CP) The Al- berta Wheat Pool reported Tuesday good to excellent crop prospects throughout Alberta, a result of precipitation in all regions last week. The report said, however, there was too much rain and some hail damage in central and northern regions and dry conditions in some southern and Peace River regions. Across the mois- ture conditions in top soil have been reported at 82 per cent of capacity, a drop of two per cent from the previous week.

Mr. Baldwin has refused to move until suitable accommo- dations are found elsewhere, although the property has been expropriated by the city and :he money for it already pre- sented to a lawyer. The report will go to Alder- man John Kushner, finance committee chairman, who has isen in touch with Mr. Bald- win on several occasions. Mr. Baldwin, whose home was expropriated to make room for a new YMCA build- ing, has been shown a number of alternate homes but-has re- jected them all as unsuitable. Mr. Baldwin, the only resi- dent who has not moved out of ie area, could be forcibly moved from the house if the city wants to follow that course of action.

But the report said there are some near drought conditions in southern Alberta and in a few areas heavy stands of barley and oats have been blown over by strong winds and accompa n y i n g showers. Wheat averaged 26 inches high, a growth of four inches during the week. It varies from 21 inches in the Peace River district to 30 inches in Medicine Hat area. About 66 per cent of the Pool's reporting stations Indi- cated that wheat is filling out well. This compared with simi- lar reports last year from 58 per cent of the stations. Winter wheat and fall rye are being swathed and some crops have been threshed. Yields were reported near average. Second growth has delayed harvesting of some fall rye crops. A light frost also was re- ported during the week in the {fines Creek-Spirit River area. Rust has been reported on some crops in central and northern areas. There was no indication how extensive it may be. Meanwhile, Hugh Bryce, pro- vincial agriculture statistician, says Taber, Youngston and Grande Prairie are the only areas of Alberta with poor moisture and thin yields. Heavy _rains hi north central Alberta flooded crops in low- lying areas but most fields were mature enough to with- stand damage. Swathing of fall wheat and rye has started in some south- ern areas and should be gen- eral in a week to 10 days, Mr. Bryce said. Canning crops and sugar beets were reported in ;ood condition hi the Leth- bridge area. Swathing of fes- cue and timothy was under way in the Peace River area.
