For optimum production, alfalfa does not require special attention for soil moisture levels, as long as the levelis maintained safely above the wilting point and below the saturation level. Sugar beet fields have good soil moisture levels, at least in the first 2 feet depth. Grain crops, at the present time have a higher demand for moisture, however, last week's precipitation of over 2 inches solved the soil moisture deficiency problem for a while.

Mainland, ummer Sessions Hinted To Complete Grain Study BL J OTTAWA (CP) The Com- m o n s agriculture committee continued its clause-by-clause review of the government's pro- posed new grain act Friday and considered summer sessions to complete study of the slow-mov- ing bill. "Walter Beakon High Park) suggested the com- mittee hold further meetings after the scheduled Commons recess June Mr. Deakon said that rince members are concerned with the welfare of producers they probably wouldn't mip.d "sitting all summer to get through the which would replace the Canada Grains Act and alter present grain grading stand- ards. Jack Homer said the committee "will sit all summer unless vie get some an- swers." He said he was disap- pointed with answers by Agri- culture Minister H. A. Olson on a clause in the bill which calls for operating licences' to be is- sued by the federal grain com- mission to elevator operators. Conservative members said the commission should have no authority to withhold licences from operators merely because an elevator did not comply with "type and size" regulations. Mr. Homer said "what really makes elevators efficient is turnover in grain, so why do you need the word size in (no He said wheat board officials have already stated there an? too many small elevators. But without a definition of "small" the problem was "all relative." "I can't bo convinced this act won't be used1 autocratically tho same way the department of in- formation nnd the white paner on taxation and the hate bill have been used." Ray Perrault S c y m o u r) replied that the "word autocracy has been tossed around with reckless abandon. I've never seen such an assortment ot legisla- tive red hearings since I've been in Ottawa." He said Mr. Homer is wrong, the bill is "infinitely demo- cratic" and the committee should pass it.

Drug Study Far From Over OTTAWA (CP) The study of tic so-called mind-bending drugs is far from over, the Lc- Dain commission interim report makes plain. The five-member commission, appointed May 23 last year, says in its interim report tablet! today in the Commons that its tasks ahead include mainte- nance of close contact with re- search on drugs such as mari- juana. It says, for example, that a major research project is being carried out on behalf of UK commission and it is expected "that the results will provide a basis for far more accurate esti- mates of the extent of drug use in Canada." It says at another point, with overtones of digging into the criminal elements behind tho pushing of drugs, that "lira commission intends to investi- gate further the allegations of relationship between drug uso and other criminal activity." The commission, which has held public hsarings across Ilia country, lists submissions re- ceived from 97 groups and asso- ciations and 132 individuals. Its interim report is 025 pages.
