(CP) Significant changes in the organization of the truit industry in British Columbia were given approval in principle here Saturday at a special general meeting of the 3.000-member B.C. Fruit Growers Association. One change would require any grower wishing to sell his crop outside the grower- owned central selling agency, B C. Tree Fruits Ltd., to opt out for a five-year period. Likewise, those choosing to market through the agency would pledge to do so for five years. The regulation would apply to sales outisde the province, not local sales from fruit stands operated by many orchardists. Recent provincial marketing legislation changes allow a grower to opt out of selling through B.C. Tree Fruits. The five-year period for those selling through B.C. Tree Fruits is designed to give stability and the five-year opting out period was felt to be "only fair." Growers said they did not want to support the central selling agency for some other growers to "hop in and out of." A second change called for the amalgamation of the Board of B.C. Tree Fruits processing arm Sun Rype Products Ltd. and the B.C. Fruit Board. The change is based on the feeling by the BCFGA executive that the amalgamated board would be stronger and more effective in performing responsibilities in selling based on voluntary participation. The third change is a technical one involving the concept of management contracts between the shipper and the industry sales agency. It provides that the shipper must adequately service the produce of the grower with whom he contracts and is also responsible to the sales agency for his operations. The changes now will be brought before the BCFGA's next annual meeting in January. 1975, to be given final consideration. Fix on copper prices suggested at meeting LUSAKA. Zambia (AP) Premier Mainza Chona of Zam- bia told other copper- producing states today they should band together to fix copper prices, much as oil producers have done with the price of oil. In a talk opening a conference of the Inter governmental Council of Copper Exporting Countries, Chona referred to the success of the "oil and advised the council to adapt the oil tactic to suit their own conditions. Chona bitterly attacked the London Metal Exchange for al- lowing speculators to set copper prices. He told the council, known as CIPEC for its initials in French: "The time has come for speculators to be told that the copper producers have had enough, and I hope this conference will start the initial steps to get that CIPEC was formed four years ago in Lusaka by Zambia. Zaire, Chile and Peru, four of the world's major copper pro- ducers after the United States and the Soviet Union. Chona urged that membership now be expanded. Crops prediction may be revised WASHINGTON (AP) United States government farm experts may soon revise downward earlier predictions that 1974 crop production is headed for records. Sources in the agriculture department say closed-door Lone protest CALGARY A 27- year-old employee at Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. continued to sit on top of the company's 200-foot-high water tower through the weekend to draw attention to a contract dispute between the company and its 240 employees Dave Schiedei. talking to reporters Sunday via a walkie- talkie from his 10-foot perch atop the water tower, said he was in fine spirits. Mr. Schiedei climbed the tower Friday morning with food, water, a sleeping bag and other essentials. meetings were held in recent days in which officials examined new evidence that the U.S. corn and wheat crops will not be as large as indicated earlier. The huge grain harvests have been counted on by the administration for rebuilding stockpiles depleted by two years of record exports and to make more raw materials available for consumer food supplies through 1975. No one expects revisions to show disastrously low levels of supply, but any dip in anticipated harvest yields will have long-range impact on U.S. and world food supplies.

He said Britain's traditionally plentiful, but gentle rains might be'replaced by a succession of long dry periods broken by violent storms and floods such as those which damaged crops a week ago.
