Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta TitMday, March THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 'Rural living offers freedom, friendliness that is hard to find in the city9 Concluded from P10 Mr. Uskiw charged that the policy was designed to win the favor of Eastern livestock producers by a government whose base of power was in Eastern Canada. The policy, which is to come into force Aug. 1, sets one basic price for feed grains throughout Canada and presumably would lower feed costs to Eastern customers. But Mr. Uskiw said feed grain prices will continue to be governed by the price of com imported from the United States. The only change under the new system is that the difference between the price Prairie farmers ceive and the final selling price in the East will accrue to private grain merchants rather than the wheat board, which returns its profits to fanners. The minister brought the orderly marketing issue to the fore a second time last year before the recent plebiscite on rapeseed. He accused Ottawa of stacking the vote against marketing by the wheat board with its requirement that 60-per- cent approval was needed to change the present open- market system. He also said the provision on the ballots for an "undecided" vote gave farmers, in effect, a second way of voting against the board. Expressing concern about the "powers that be" who were vitally concerned with keeping the oilseed out of the wheat board's hands, Mr. Uskiw authorized an advertising campaign to counter the campaigns of the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange and private grain interests. Mr. Jorgenson blasted the provincial government's intervention CARDSTON FARM SERVICE LTD. Spring Specials 2-12' KIRSHMAN HOE DRILLS. CMfMlwMMrtiHnr.TlpGNMN 1-14' CASE HOE DRILLS. CMfMl 1-IHC 1?

While important in them- selves, the feed grains and rapeseed issues have tended to obscure the Manitoba government's other efforts in agri- culture over the last five years. At the federal level. Air. Uskiw has little success to an income stabilization plan guaranteeing farmers a certain net income for each acre of crop grown. Provincially, gov- ernment programs have come to be grouped under the general term of the "stay which includes new industry in regional centres, grants for sewer and water facilities and a land-banking scheme aimed at helping young fanners get established. Diversification of agriculture is another aspect of the same general thrust and Mr. Uskiw sees the push to encourage products other than grain as perhaps the major legacy of his term of office. "We have increased the production of meat products in this province fairly dramatically over the last four or five years." Trainman Despite his strong identi- fication with agriculture, Mr. Uskiw got involved in politics because of his interest in public affairs generally. He was born and raised in East Selkirk, Man., northwest of Winnipeg, but he worked for three years as a non-operating trainman in Hamilton before returning to native province to take i job as a meatcutter. When his father became ill several years later, Mr. Uskiw took over the family farm and got interested in politics about the same time. In 1957 he worked on Jake Schulz's successful campaign for election as the CCF member of Parliament for Springfield.
