A spokesman for the Na- tional Farmers' Union said a "majority" of the region's fes- cue growers have pledged not to sell to seed buyers until at least Oct. 31. About 90 per cent of Can- ada's fescue is produced in Al- berta, most of it for export to Europe. It is used primarily to seed lawns, often mixed with other types of grass seed. The NFU spokesman said the aim of '.he withholding action is to obtain a guaranteed price of 27 cents a pound. Fescue in the Hythe district of the Peace _River region was reported sell- ing at 15 cents a pound. No estimate was available o the number of fescue grower involved in the boycott. In Anti-War Campaign TOKYO (AP) Four years ago Morihiro Matsuda had a thriving small apart- ment house, a wife and two young sons. Today he's broke and alone because of a peace crusade. Mastuda spent for full-page ads in the New York Times, the London Times, the Chicago Daily News and the Chicago Sun-Times to publicize proposals which he said would end the Vietnam war. To finance his crusade, Mat suda sold his apartment build- ing and his business, a mail order firm which sold, muscle- building equipment. His wife, angered at his ex- penditures- left him, taking Jieir sons. "She got tired of my Hatsuda told an interviewer. !'She said I was crazy." But the 49-year-old man lasn't given up. "I may never be rich ie told an interviewer, "but I'll continue to try and do some- thing for the good of mankind." Matsuda now drives a truck or a living. He usually leaves lis rented room at dawn and re- urns at night. He earns about month and saves part of it, hopeful that some day he can finance an- other peace crusade. Matsuda's peace plan for Vietnam called for division of South Vietnam into two parts, the northern sector ruled by the Viet Cong and the southern part by the Saigon government. His ads also gave his views on re- ducing traffic accidents, solving the China problem and building "paradise on earth." Matsuda was born in Pyon- gyang, now the capital of North Korea, but now holds a South Korean passport. He adopted Iris Japanese name when he set- tled in Japan in 1941. "There is an old saying that foolish people, not clever people give birth to Matsuda commented, "I think it is :all to the good that I become a foolish nan." Canada only gets complicity without control under these clandestine' deals.. Thursday's 500-ton dynamite blast experiment at Suffield provided an example of the frustrations of trying to pin down Canada's involvement in such research activities, she said.

West opened four of clubs, the six fit played from dummy and East put up the king to win the trick. Defensive prospects did not appear to be encouraging. The play from dummy to the first trick suggested that South held the jack of clubs, and could therefore now take three tricks in that suit. jump to four spades an- nounced a good suit of. at least six card length. The red suit aces in dummy provided further reinforcement. In order to breach this was- necessary for East to assume that his partner held a trump trick as well as some Bide strength, In which case it was vital to .launch an immediate assault against the weak ipot in declarer's armor. But where should East attack? Between hij own and the dummy, East was looking at nine hearts and six dia- monds. It was natural to expect, therefore, that the declarer was more apt to' ba ahort in hearts than dia- monds, and East accordingly lelecled the latter salt-tor his thrust. It was necessary to assume that West held the king of diamonds, for if he did not have that the defense might just as well resign. East shifted to the deuce of diamonds and his partner produced the king to dislodga North's ice. Declarer played the queen of spades followed- by a spade to the king. When East showed out, South led one more high trump and- then began to run the clubs in an attempt to obtain a quick discard for one of his dia- mond losers. West, however, ruffed in on the third round and returned a diamond thru dummy's jack, enabling Bast to cash the selling tricks in that suit. Observe that if East falls to lead a diamond at trick two, South has time to make use of dummy's long club for thi Four-Bushel Grain Quota Announced WINNIPEG (CP) The Ca- nadian wheat board announced Tuesday that a delivery quota of four bushels -per specified acre, is effective immediately in some 61 The four bushel quota be- comes effective in nine points in Manitoba, 38 in Saskatch- ewan and 14 in Alberta.
