Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IETHDR1DCE HERAIO TtilTJday, Juris B, Prairie farmers near completion of seeding grain crop OTTAWA (CP) Up to 85 per cent of all grain crops have been seeded in Saskatchewan and Alberta while Manitoba farmers will complete all of their seeding by the end of next week, Statistics Canada re- ported today in the second of a scries of crop reports covering all Canada. Prairie farmers have just about completed all seeding of wheat. Moisture conditions arc re- ported favorable tliroughout much of Manitoba and parts of Saskatchewan. However, more rain is needed in central and northern Saskatchewan as well as in many districts in Alberta. Weed growth, esixcially wild Industrial incentive rants oals, is said to be licavy and causing troublo in some areas. Grasshoppers and other insects also arc reported active and a close eye is being kept on Hie situation. In British Columbia, weather conditions are reported warm and dry in contrast lo the record low temperatures o[ early spring. Rainfall was below average set in terms of rainless days, i Dairy crops looked promising in coastal areas and an average strawberry harvest is expected to begin in 10 days. An average apple crop and above-average harvest of apri- cots and Bartlett pears is indi- cated in the Okanagan Valley. Late seeding of barley is nearing an end in the Peace River district and rainfall is during May with records being I badly needed there. to continue for 13 months OTTAWA (CP) Regional Expansion Minister Jean Mar- chand announced in the Com- mons Wednesday that existing designations of areas qualifying for industrial incentive grants made by his department will continue for 12 or 18 inonths. All areas originally desig- nated under the Regional Devel- opment Incentives Act in Au- gust, 19GS, wilt maintain their designation for 13 Dej. 31, 1973. Special incentive areas, such as Montreal and southeastern Ontario, designated Jan. 1, 1971, will continue to qualify for in- centive grants for 12 July 1, 1973. Mr. Marchand said the deci- sion to renew the status of all such areas, and not to extend the designation to other areas, v.-as made in consultation with the provincial governments. The minister said the incen- tive program has not had time QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic Capitol Furniture Bldg.

PERMITS EVALUATION Continuation of the design status of existing areas would allow an accurate evaluation oE the whole program. Original incentive areas to continue for 18 montlis are: of the Atlantic prov- inces, except Labrador; broad area of southern Quebec, including the Gaspo Peninsula, Quebec City, TroiS: Rivieres and Sherbrooke and an area of the northern part of the province including Rotiyn-Nor- anda and Chibougamau; area of Northern Ontario encompassing North Bay, Sud- bury, Kapuskasing, Thunder Bay, Kenora and Red Lake; of southern Manitoba; regions in Saskatche- including Humboldt, Melfort and Tisdale; the other Estevan, Weyburn, Moose Jaw and Swift Current; section of Alberta Includ- ing Medicine Hat, Lethbridge and Drumheller; southeastern triangle of British Columbia containing Cranbrook, Golden, Revclstoke, Nelson, Trail and Grand Forks. Opposition spokesmen wel- comed Mr. Marchand's an- nouncement, and James A. McGrath Jolin's East) said he is particularly glart (here will be an evaluation of the program, He felt that the program should concentrate more on spe- cific areas, rather than scatter- ing funds over half the country. More emphasis should be placed on potential growth centres. Mr. McGrath said the purpose of the program was being de- feated by designating such vast areas of Canada. He also said the increased benefits offered to all industry in the government's recent budget dilutes some of (he advantages enjoyed by des- ignated areas. TOILET VACANT LONDON (CP) Latest in Iho renting business: A firm called Rent-a-Loo has opened au office in the West End. So popu- lar is t lie demand for hired toi- lets that the concern displayed a sign in the window explaining that it requires 21 days' notice to supply a loo. "Customers in a hurry will have to go else- said the firm's head, Wallace Johnstone. MPs can't agree on use of army base for CALGARY (CP) Touring members of parliament couldn't agree here whether the British should be permitted to use Ca- nadian forces base Suffield for summer manoeuvres. Sixteen members of the standing committee on exter- nal affairs and national defence were nl CFB Calgary as part of a swing through west ern Canada. John M. Forrest all, Progres- sive Conservative member for Dartmouth Halifax said the agreement by which GOO British will begin training soon at the Suffield base near Medicine Hat assures that both the ecology and the archaeological sites will be protected during the six-week session. But New Democrat Douglas Rowland, representing Selkirk, Man., said that since his party feels Canada should withdraw from NATO, "the British find- ing a place to train her troops is far secondary to ecological problems." The arrangements left In doubt whether the training would stop if historic sites and training the ecology were damaged, he said. Conservative Robert Thomp- son, member for Red Deer, countered that the British will use only an equal portion of the site and that bird and animal areas will not be harmed. Liberal Georges Lachance, representative for Lafontaine- Montreal and committee vice- chairman, said the ecological damage is not a serious prob- lem although "I'm not saying that I like it." Liberal Ian Wahn of St. Paul's Toronto and committee chairman said the group is seeking "h a r d information" on just what should be Can- ada's defence role and what the military requires to fill it. Members agreed that military funding is inadequate, adding this harms morale and anti- quates equipment. UNIQUE TREE The only place cherry birch occurs naturally in Can- ada is in a small grove near Port Dalhousie, Ont. KEEPING IT UNDER HIS HAT Wearing an over-sized helmet, but having no apparent trouble playing his trumpet, 13-year-old Roger West marches in a cadet lot- too held in Hamilton recently.

More Soviet exports would balance trade 'with Canada says Smeljakov TORONTO (CP) The Soviet Union wants to increase its ex- ports tc Canada to offset a bal- ance of trade weighted in Can- ada's favor, a Soviet spokes- man said here. N. W. Smeljakov, speaking through an interpreter, said his country would like to develop markets for macliine tools and other products. Mr. Smeljakov is heading a five-man mission that is visiting machine, steel and heavy ma- chinery plants in Canada. Soviet exports to Canada in 1971 totalled S12.G million white Canadian exports to the Soviet Union totalled million, of which million was ac- counted for by wheat sales. On- tario-based plants sold mil- lion of products to the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union would like to sell machine tools to Canada and steel products as well as farm machinery, Mr. Smeljakov said. In return it would like lo import oil drilling machinery, machinery for tractor construc- tion, food packaging and tho pulp and paper industry. Canadian interest has been expressed in Soviet-made, high- purity steel slabs and other steel products, Mr. Smeljakov said. Alcan Aluminum Ltd. of Montreal would like a licence to produce the slabs, he said. I TIRENZA TOUGH... LITTLE... AND FUN!
