HL did not expand on that answer. The government has given a number of answers for the delay on grain transportation; nnd handling over which it has 10 control. j MENTIONS CAUSKS Mr. Lang mentioned heavy Miles, bad weather delaying rail ransportation and late arrival of ships at Vancouver. members have- ox- srcsscd concern that [he grain :iandling problem will cause Canada to lose wheat sales, al- though Mr. Lnng has said tho wheat board will continue tii- tempts to sell grain.

"The .situation is so serious that in a pamphlet issued by the Canadian wheat board it is slated that we are in danger of abdicating our role as an ex- porter of grain, rind that we face ;i real crisis in the move- ment of grain. [As far as I know there Is na government program to meet this situation." He had another point: A whole new dock facility was built in Vancouver when a U.S. company wanted to move Al- berta coal to Japan. 'Yet we cannot seem to or- ganizfi ourselves in order to build the hind of transportation and sioi'age facilities we need to serve an industry that has been viable in Canada since. Con- federation."

Now even the are be- ginning to disappear. The home- delivery service is a fast changing business, In some areas it is already dead. Ten years ago liome deliv- eries ijcounled for half the business of Donlands Dairy Lid. of Toronto, fn 1970. the com- pany ceased home delivery alto- gether. "The number of people v.ant- iBg delivery had much it wasn't economically feasible for us to continue." says John Essay winners to be guests of government EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta will acquire three children as deputy education ministers on March 9. The deputies will be Grade 6 pupils who won a province-wide essay contest held in conjunc- tion with Education Week, March 6-10. Tho winners are Barbara Jane McKinley, 10, of Med- icine Hat; Calvin Sargeant, 11, of Rimbey; and Jim Hutchison 11, of Edmonton.

Tt is my impression there has been a large reduction in both house calls and requests for says Dr. Douglas Johnson, head of the depart- ment of family and community medicine at Toronto's Sunny- brook Hospital. SEES MORE PATIENTS "A doctor can sec more pa- tients, more efficiently, in the office, besides having access to a laboratory or equipment." Some companies have tried to adjust Eo the shift in lifestyles by expanding the products of- fered by their route-salesmen. Silver-wood Dairies has in- creased its home delivery serv- ice by turning its trucks into travelling general stores. The company now delivers soft drinks, bread, powdered-de- tergent and such things as hand- lotion in addition to dairy-prod- ucts, One institution of home deliv- eries, however, remains rain or shine, the newspaper boy is still making his rounds.
