Harry Strom backs family farm ANDREW (CP) Premier Harry Strom said Thursday his government wUl initiate a number of measures designed to maintain the family farm. The premier told a Social Credit rally the government be- lieves the family farm is, and will remain, the cornerstone of Alberta agriculture. He said the government will: Increase funding in the Al- berta Farm Purchase Board to million from million; _ Rebate 25 per cent ot crop insurance premiums; Make crop and other in- surance available in all parts of the province, and Pressure the federal gov- ernment to adopt a two price system for wheat. The premier said the propos- als "rail Mp ensure the con- tinued survival of the family farm by easing some financial burdens, and by helping to in- crease farm income." Aim of increasing loan funds was to make it easier for young farmers who want to purchase their parents' farm but were unable to because of a lack of money. "If more loans are not made available to young farmers, many older farmers who want to retire will be forced to sell to corporate interests which have the available he said. The premier was speaking at a party gathering at this com- munity, SO miles northeast of Edmonton.

A local trucking firm, hired to deposit the lime in an aban- doned mine in Peine near Han- nover in northern West Ger- many, said it had dumped it in four refuse dumps in North Rhine-Westphalia because Peine authorities were reluctant to give official permission for the dumping. WUly Weyer, Interior minister of North Rhine-Westphalia, said the dumping is incomprehen- sible and ordered the dumps closed immediately. Police and public prosecutors are investigating the matter.

"Since we would like to see all farmers carrying insurance, we are not only rebating part of their premium, but we are directing the crop insurance corporation to extend cover- age to all parts of the prov- ince." He said a federal two-price system for wheat would help increase farm incomes, but the Crack In highway spurs evacuation STE. ANNE DBS MOOTS, Que. (CP) Four houses in this village perched on the rug- ged Gaspe coast have been or- dered evacuated because of a landslide threat. Police said government engi- neers ordered the evacuation following the discovery of a crack in Highway 6, which fol- lows the Gaspe coastline. The crack was found about a quarter-mile from Ste. Anne des Monts, at a point where the highway borders on a cliff 800 to 900 feet above the St. Law- rence River. Eight years ago, several houses in the nearby village of New harbor fees system OTTAWA (CP) Effective Aug. 1, public harbor dues in Canada will be assessed on the gross registered tonnage of ves- sels, the transport department announced today. It will be the first revision of the dues since 1955. The dues have been payable on net regis- tered tonnage at three cents a ton on vessels coming from any port in North America and five cents a ton on other vessels. National Harbors Board and St. Lawrence seaway tolls are already assessed on the gross tonnage of vessels and the new change places public harbors on the same basis. Computer studies carried out in a program to develop addi- tional revenue resulted in the dues change, the department said-in a news release. Harbor dues will continue to be payable not more than twice in the calendar year upon the first and second entry of a ves- sel into a public harbor. The change to gross from net tonnage is expected to produce an additional annually. St. Joachim de Tourelle were swept away by a mudslide and four persons riding in a truck were killed when a section of the highway was washed out. Alberta government also had taken initiatives such as ap- pointing the first marketing commissioner in Canada. The commissioner's job is "to hammer out new markets for Alberta farm products, en- courage the diversification of the agricultural industry, and assist and encourage fanners in their efforts to improve their operations through farm management pro g r a m s in order to ensure economic sta- bility." Premier Strom said rural areas also now hsve better transportat ion, communica- tion, schools and health facili- ties, and the government is en- couraging industry to locate in rural areas and smaller cen- tres. hail claims filed EDMONTON (CP) Agricul- cturc Minister H. A. Ruste said here government insurance pay- ments to central Alberta farm- ers who sustained crop losses in a severe hailstorm last week are expected to total nearly two million dollars. More than claims have been received so far and more are expected, the minister said. The Alberta Hail Studies Group at Penhold said the storm was probably the worst since the early 1950's and predicted that crop and property damage could exceed million. Mr. Ruste said his depart- ment is still surveying the dam- age. Wrong operation JERUSALEM (Router) The mother of a four-month-old Arab boy complained to police Thursday that her son was cas- trated instead of circumcized.

Doctor bills check set QUEBEC (CP) The Quebec health insurance board is to begin a system of checking doc- tors' Mils with the patients they claim to have treated. The system is to begin in the next few weeks and bills will be selected at random.

NEW YORK (AP) An inter- view with entertainer George -Tessel on the NBC television Today Show was cut short today after Jessel referred to the New York Times and the Washington Post as "Pravda." Jessel- made the remarks twice during the interview with SiBC reporters Edwin Newman and Joe Garagiola. Newman terminated the inter- view about a minute before its scheduled conclusion. Discussing what he called the strength of United States troops in bases in Spain and Britain which he had just visited, Jessel complained: ''Of course, whet, you pick up Pravda, uh, the New York Times, you'll see it's all full of dope and killing children." Jessel said the drug situation among U.S. armed servicemen is "so exaggerated, it's almost childish." !'We have some strange new thing with the communique being said Jes- sel, beginning again: "Then you pick up Pravda, uh, the Wash- ngton Post At this point, Newman inter- Harolcl Homer heads study of farm income SASKATOON (CP) Har- old Homer, deputy minister of agriculture in Saskatchewan, will head the special commit- tee studying farm income problems, it was announced here.

Doctors' policy statement awaited VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons was expected to issue a policy state- ment later today on a contro- versial amendment to the B.C. Hospitals Act that gives wider authority to Health Minister Ralph Loffmark. The amendment made public Tuesday, gives Mr. Loffmark the power to decide in which hospital a doctor may practise. Previously, this was determined by local hospital boards. The health minister said die action was taken as a means of encouraging doctors to practise in smaJ'er communities. Dr. W. G. McClure, registrar of the B.C. College of Physi- cians and Surgeons, has strongly opposed the amend- ment, and says the order proba- bly wiU create a shortage of doctors in the province. "We can't hope to attract doc tors to B.C. when the big ques tion mark of whether or no they will get hospital privileges is hanging over their he said. The 35-man council of the col lege met Thursday night to dis cuss the question. A spokesman said later that a college policy statement would be issued later today. Meanwhile, a heart surgery specialist denied access to facil ities at Vancouver General Hos- pital, said the health minister's new powers were aimed a breaking the cliques controlling surgeries in major hospitals. Dr. George Stefanik, who ap- plied in 1969 to join an open heart surgical team at VGH said Mr. Loffmark had his casi in mind when he took on the new powers. Indian youth's grave in no immediate danger CALGAHY (CP) A city historian and land officials want to preserve the grave of an Indian youth from industrial expansion. Hugh A. Dempsey of the Glenbow Alberta Historical Institute says the grave was established at the time in the country and east of the city by the carpentry class of the Cal- gary Indian Industrial School. But an industrial boom dur- ing the last 20 years has placed the remains of the school in a feed lot and the grave site, es- tablished in the early 1900s, in the middle of a gravel mining operation. Jack White Goose Flying was one of many youths, (in- eluding Senator James Glad- stone of who came reserves in tihe Calgary area to leara trades and farm ing methods at the school. He died at the age of 17. The school was one of seven built by the federal govern ment and was operated by the Anglican Church until it closet in 1907. City land department offi cials developing the area say they have been aware for some time of the grave site surrounded by a picket fence. It is apparently in no im mediate danger, but officials have been working with Mr Dempsey to either preserve site permanently or move the grave to a city cemetery or back to the Peigar. reserve, the youth's original home. CALGARY (CP) General] lospital announced Thursday ts policy of granting hospital irivileges to most doctors who ipply row is changed to hiring according to specialty require- ments. Hospital board members ap- >roved formation of a medical OTimittee to review applica- ions from doctors for use of Tospilal facilities. If a specialty, such as ob- stetrics or pediatrics, was ade- quately staffed in the opinion of the committee, it would rec- ommend file board reject -appli- cations. Aid. Roy Farran, who op- posed the policy, said a re- gional hospital board should be formed in the province to di- rect doctors to hospitals re- quiring staff with their spe- cialties. Patsy Mink falls to block N-test WASHINGTON (AP) An ef- fort to block s five-megaton un- derground nuclear test sched- uled for this fall rn the Aleutian Islands was rejected 282 to 108 Thursday night by the House of Representatives. The blast, to be held in Octo- ber on Amchitka Island, is to :est the warhead of the Safe- guard Spartan anti-missile sys- tem. Opponents said the test could cause earthquakes, a tidal wave and radiation exposure and could prove unnecessary if cur- rent U.S.-Soviet arms-limitation put curbs on such war- heads. But Representative John J. Rhodes (Rep. Ariz.) said he sus- pects the opponents are trying to kill the Safeguard program by blocking essential tests. Representative diet Holifleld (Dem. ranking House amendment to cut 19.7 million for the test out of a public works and atomic energy appropriation bill, denied the charge. 'We are not opposed to the test but we are opposed to con- ducting the test in a seismic she said. "A recent earthquake in Alaska caused a tidal wave that killed 139 people in my state." Representative het Holifleld (Dem. ranking House Democrat on the joint atomic energy committee, said elabo- rate precautions, including a deeper test hole, have been taken in the wake of the contro- versy over ground cracks pro- duced by a one-megaton test blast on Amchitka two years ago. Canada has protested the pro- posed test series on several oc- casions, both officially and unof- ficially. The protests include govern- ment representations and an un- scheduled appearance May 29 at U.S. Atomic Energy Commis- sion hearings in Anchorage, Alaska, by a group from Van- couver Island. That group was assured only minimal damage would be caused by the blast. External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp repeatedly as- sured the Commons following announcement of the test that Canada has protested officially as strongly as it can, but with- out much hope of affecting any AEG decision on the matter.
