Pool said today in a press re- kcse Weekend rains came too late to prevent reduced rye yields in Southern Alberta but winter wheat crops, now heading out, were in good shape. "Damage due to grasshooper infestation is reported in some eastern and southern areas of the Province and red turnip beetles are a cause of concern to rapeseed growers north of Edmonton and in the Peace River country, said the report. The condition index for all crops was more than 95 per cent last week and prospects are for a better than average crop year, the Wheat Pool pre- dicted. ers' Brotherhood said Ernest Sentes of the insula- tors and asbestos workers said his union would strongly pro- test a trarsfer of powers. At present we have a good system tradesman teaching tradesmen he said. "Let's keep it that way Plans for specialization of training courses also came un- der fire Mr Shewchuk warned that the "block system" of training would lead to unemployment for specialized workers. The system would permit journey- man certification on the basis of a specialty without general training in the trade. Mr. Tackabenry said when work in a specialty became scarce workers would either be unemployed or try to work in areas for which they are not quahf 1. Northern development pro- jects would not provide enough jobs to justify specialization programs, welder Robert Ban- nister said Estimates of labor required for northern construction were too high, he said If the project- ed number of men required for a MacKenzie Valley pipeline were hired "They'll be riding each other piggyback." The onJy pro specialization stand was taken by the Cana- dian Association of Oilfield Pro- duction Equipm e n t Managers, who argued that high pressure welding products produced in Alberta cost too much due to "the most stringent and com- prehensive regulations" in Can- ada "If the manufacturers in this province are to remain compe- titive with these outside the province, they cannot be ex- pected to comply with more stringent regulations" than tiie competition, said Clifford Lytle, president of C-E NATCO c o m. p a n y's Quebec branch could turn out a special- ist welder in six months while Alberta required three years training. Retention of the present ap- prenticeship system, with some improvements" was recom- mended by most of those sub- mitting briefs including the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, 126 vocational high school teachers, an alliance of public and private utility com- panies, unions, and private companies.
