Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, June 9, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Agro Policy Needs Support RED DEER (CP) The fed- eral task force lias put a na- tional agricultural policy in writing for the first time but the federal government won't necessarily act on it unless farm people insist, A. M. Runci- man, president cf United Grain Growers, said here. "I think the government will tend to move out of manage- ment of agriculture and again let farmers make more of their own Mr. Runciman said in an address to the con- vention of the Alberta Institute of Agrologisls. "But the government will do this only if farmers tell it they want it done. "Government will do it only if we let it know farmers and their industry are willing to make many cf their own deci- sions and leave government the role of creating a healthy en- vironment in which to work." BEST MOVE Mr. Runciman said he feels the major recommendation of the task force report, publish- ed last month, is that the de- partment cf agriculture be re- named the department of agri- cultural industry and be re- sponsible for the Canadian Wheat Board and all other pal- icy-making bodies that deter- mine the well-being of commer- cial farmers. "I place this as a priority item because of the time ele- ment involved. Several of the task force proposals have al- ready been put into effect and rot all of them by the minister of agriculture. "Unless we tell the govern- ment differently, ministers af- fected will naturally be in- clined to introduce those rec- ommendations which fit into their present setup but which could actually hinder the over- all farm program." Mr. Rumanian also express- ed- approval, although disagree- ing tin some details, with the task force recommendation for a prairie grain stabilization program. The proposal is that once wheat inventory is reduced to a manageable level of 000 to bushels through an acreage reduction program, a voluntary price support program be instituted for'wheat, and barley with a revolving fund to which the federal government and partici- pating farmers would contri- bute. "Together with federal crop insurance which would give yield protection, fanners would have a minimum income guar- antee yet still be free to pro- duce and sell crops in the mar- ket place." A third major task force rec- ommendation was for reduced tariffs on items involved in farm production.

British Election Campaign Features News Innovations LONDON (CP) The folksy walk and the flying circus are major innovations of the 1970 British election campaign. Taking a tip from the Queen's new style in her recent Austral- ian tour, Prime Minister Wilson is doing a lot of strolling. Pipe in hand and wife by his side, the chatty Labor party leader gives the appearance of wanting nothing better than to pass the time of day with fte neighbors, beaming about the sunshine and the happy election and having "a bit of a cleanup" Dief Briefed On Nationalist Chinese Forces TAIPEI, Formosa (Reuters) John Diefenbaker, former Canadian prime minister, today called on the Nationalist Chinese defence minister, Huang Cliieh, and the chief of joint general staff, Gen. Kao Kwei Yuan. Diefenbaker was briefed on the ember Nationalist Chinese armed forces and the military situation around Tai- wan. He is here on a week-long visit to collect information for a report to the Canadian House of j Commons. Saturday he flew to the island of Quemoy only three miles from the Chinese main- land. Diefenbaker is scheduled to meet President Chiang Kai-shek before departing for Osaka, Japan, on Thursday.

In c o n t r a s t, Conservative Leader Edward Heath has hired an executive aircraft for speech-making trips to specific ridings, accompanied by a load of newspaper men and blue- suited aides handing out drinks along with stencilled speeches, all in the smooth style of high- paced business. The walks and the jet flights are not ends in themselves. All the movement and chatter are pitched to the newspaper and the television screen- CALL WALKS A GIMMICK Commentators, In fact, sug- gest that Wilson's "meet the people" walks are part of the TV gimmick. Attempting to avoid demonstrators, he has given little advance information on where he may turn up and on occasion he has talked merely to party workers lined up near the local party head- quarters. But on the screen it looks as though he is really get- Camp Seeks Title For New Book MONTREAL (CP) Dai- ton Camp says he has just completed a book on Cana- dian politics and is still looking for a title. One title he considered, and ditched, he told the Ca- nadian Manufacturers' As- sociation Monday, was Sorry About That, Chief. Mr. Camp was formerly head of the Progressive Conservative Association and a leader of the move to ditch John Diefenbaker, commonly known as The Chief, as party leader.

Despite the lack of advance information, the enemy seems to have turned on a strategic journey, ready to pelt Wilson with the odd tomato or egg. One hard-boiled egg caught Wilson on his ear and a doctor had to be called in to check damage. But his aides say he will con- tinue the walks until election day. His normal schedule is to hold a daily press conference, in London if possible, followed by a train ride to some outlying constituency for a walk and evening speech, heading back to London or some nearby studio for a late night TV appearance before turning in. The Labor prime minister has a canny way of relating with the local workers, of being able to speak in local terms about local problems. Heath is less unbending and less able to warm up a local audience. He meets local persons usually in or near the local Tory head- quarters and thereby is less of a target for the egg-pitchers and tomato-flingers.
