Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 13, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 4 THf IFIHBRIDGE HKAIO March 1971 David Haivorth The Pound appointment It has been suggsted that politics is muddying the Canadian grain in by the appointment of Del wellknown in Southern as chairman of the Cana dian Grain Pound was active in the Liberal party be fore his appointment to the Board of Grain Commissioners just a few months It would be grossly unfair to Pound and to Canadian agriculture to infer that this is a patronage ap Pound was raised on an Alberta grain farm and held re sponsible positions in the grain and agricultural supply industries for 25 He knows the grain business and he is a competent exec Those who know him best ex pect good results from his new ap The Board of Grain Commissioners has been responsible for imposing and operating the grading It is the chief agent for quality It supervises all handling Then the Canadian Wheat Board takes over as the marketing agent for those grains within its jurisdic Over the years the Board of Grain Commissioners has enjoyed vast pub lic respect for the high standards it The Wheat Board has been subjected to a good deal more especially for allowing in different selling policies to let a huge surplus However the Wheat Board had to operate with the grades provided by the Board of Grain and that was much of the The world market changed and left the Canadian grading system and the Canadian quality standards How blame for the disaster for Can ada should be apportioned among the Board of Grain the Canadian Wheat the Gov ernment of Canada and the grain producers themsehes who cannot escape responsibility for the disposi tion of their products is a matter for In any event Canada will have a new Grain Act in a few there will be new the protein fac tor will be and in several other ways the work of the Board of Grain Commissioners is being re The boards name is being changed to the Canadian Grain Com the minister of said he felt there should be a change in the board chairman ship to cope with the new and thus the appointment of Nobody there to do the job The announcement that the govern ment might appoint a minister to take charge of implementing the rec ommendations of the royal commis sion on the status of women is a step in the right But it should be a quick enacted immediately lest the whole matter languish and eventually perish as has been the fate of other probes of Canadian so cial Robert minister in charge of in making the announce ment indicated the government was whole heartedly behind updating wo mens status and hinted that a min isterial post of tills nature should properly go to a This is very broadmind ed and its also highly log It is acknowledged that women have an uncanny knack for getting things They have organization al abilities that put men in the as any man knows who has ever at tended a convention or conference headed by And the impetus to get the recommendations on wom ens status moving is a challenge which would have any Madame Min ister and her assistants so busy her male associates around Parliam e n t Hill would be left in her liberated But unfortunately the only woman in the house at the present time is Grace an NDPer who does not Therefore unless some technicalities are overlooked or some procedure taken to open an op portunity for another woman to gain a seat in the government a tenu ous situation in the best of the position will automatically be awarded to a The upshot of the whole matter if women are really serious in im proving their own condition they must come forward politically strongly and with and play a re sponsible role in ironing out the in equalities which beset their Until this time the direc tion in this sector will come from members on the opposite Mores the Weekend Meditation The Quest of soul TVIOST men live lives of quiet despera So said the New England seer of This century began as the cen tury of hope and threatens to end as the century of Multitudes perish for lack of Eliot describes the an guish of the departure of God is leving us and through the dark ail falls the stifling scent of In the God is represented as seeking The psalmist

reverberations of the defeat will be felt through out the movement or a long time to Th the longest of its kind in Britain since the Sec ond World was brought to a dying fall on the basis of nothing more substantial than the promise of an independent investigation into the post mens claim and the efficiency and manpower of the Post Of of there can bo no guarantee whatever that the inquiry will recommend a penny more than the 8 per cent increase tlie men were of fered before the strike Whatever the final settle it is clear that neither the Post Office nor the union will ever be the same The Post Office must con template a permanent shift away from letter sen ices to the telephone and teleprinters as well as an decline in the number of letters people For the in the tho strike was a matter

how to get it loaded under government Buyers are ready and willing but they cant buy wheat be cause a bureaucratic muddle has become so in flexible and devoid of resource fulness that its hopelessness

marketing council would always be in the best interests of tbe industry as they havent in the past the venerable minister of agri culture got up and walked He doesnt have to answer questions since hes got the big L WALKER Milk River sharp battle would win the day for At the time there was no reason to disbelieve No one then knew Uiat the coun trys business would not be brought to desperation level by apost mens nor could anyone have foreseen how well the telephone system would stand up to the extra traffic it J a c k s o ns calculation was that the Post Office executives or government officials or both would lose their nerve after a strike lasting 10 to 14 and be willing to settle with him then at something like his asking But in spite of all his bold words he knew that if the strike were prolonged much beyond such a period he could have no hope of winning It became ob vious that the union members had lost the even while Jackson was saying Our members are resolved and more and more The strike could go on for several more weeks He knew then that it would take his members up to three years to make up the earnings they had But to him the strike had become something of a moral crusade a drowning he kept denying there was wa ter in liis lungs until he finally disappeared from The second miscalculation was to underestimate the re solve of the Post Office and the Conservative government to hold their and for this Jackson had no excuse at He was told and in he plainest that the Post Office couM not afford to pay more than its find offer and had no intention whatever in pretending that it could in the interests of a quick settle This was ignored or dis missed and so the strike went For other the collapse of the postmens strike and the manner of its collapse is a hard The Trades Union Congress is engaged in the most inten sive propaganda battle on be half of the unions over the In dustrial Relations which is designed to curb trade union and which is now go ing through The unions are also bitterly hostile to the governments attempts to hold down pay rises by standing back and not involv ing itself in the But the big and rich unions were not prepared to give the poor postmen the really large sums they needed if the strike was to continue unless they could see an eventual payoff in political And as the weeks went by it became in creasingly clear that this was not a realistic All that was finally offered was yet more interestfree loans and shopfloor The first was not what Jackson the second was not In the end It was just a question of how the union could get out of its predica ment and get the strike called off without losing too much Those who remember com pare the postmens strike with a very similar encounter the London busmen again with a Conservative govern in That strike went on for nearly seven weeks while the public went resigned ly to work on the Underground and in their At the end the strikers had to go back to work almost Sadly for the more
