Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 THE HTHBRIDGE HcRAlO Thursday, Worth T5, 1973 Farm groups present cures for problems OTTAWA (CP) The coun- try's two major farm pressure groups, 'he Canadian Feder- ation of Agrieultura (CFA) and the National Fanners' Union presented the cabinet Wednesday with different ap- proaches to similar farm prob- lems. In briefs summarizing posi- tions worked out at annual meetings in the last four months, the two suggested dif- ferent routes to arrive at the same better deal for farmers. The approach of Agri- culture Minister Eugene Whelan and the government lies some- where in between. The CFA, which represents nearly all farmers through vari- ous provincial organizations, wheat pools and such com- modity pressure groups as the National Dairy Council, at- tached primary importance to the idea of tackling problems in various sectors of the farm in- dustry independently. The NFU, a more militant group representing about of the country's farmers, asked the cabinet to support the concept of making the union the certified collective bargaining agent tor farm products by in- troducing legislation backing tliis principle. The NFU has undertaken a membership drive aimed at signing up more !han 50 per cent of all farmers. If this is She NFU says, it will ask provincial legislatures to recognize Ihe union as a bar- gainer and hopes the federal government will follow suit. The NFU, should it achieve bargaining agent status, would issue licences for farm produc- tion and change the function of marketing agencies. The agencies would negotiate long-term agreements with farm product buyers anrt all commodities would he regulated through national agencies with the power to limit supplies of farm goods and control imports. Mr. Whelan, an Ontario farmer, said at a December NFU meeting that he supports the union position that the wheat board should control the movement and sale of all grains. Currently, the hoard regulates the marketing of Prairie wheat, oats and barley. Tlialidomitle suits filed in United States courts By THE CANADIAN PRESS Lawyers for Canadian chil- dren who suffered birth defects from tbalidomide have filed suit against the drug's manufac- turer in two federal courts in the United States. The suits against Richardson- Merrill Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio, were filed in Newark, N.J., and Youngston, Ohio. Lawyer Robert Gorman said Tuesday he was filing (he suit In Newark on behalf of 22 Que- bec children in an effort to get around Quebec's one-year stat- ute of limitations. The statute requires that damage suits be filed no more than one year after the oc cur- ranee of an injury. In Youngstown, lawyer Ger- ald Foster of Charlottetown filed a suit seeking million in damages for three children and their parents'because the mothers had taken the drug during pregnancy. The action against the firm also claimed punitive damages totalling million for the "approximately" Canadian children reported to have been affected by the drug. New Jersey law places a freeze on expiration of any stat- utes of limitation until the youngsters come of age, Mr. Gorman said. The firm is li- censed to do business in New Jersey, he said. The Newark suit charges the drug company with negligence and failure to test or label the product properly. Portrait of navy PoW used on war posters 1 GARDEN GROVE, Calif. (AP) Returned prisoner of war David Rehmara remem- bers the day Hanoi took his photograph for a propaganda demonstration in 3966.

Rough new phase looms in cod fishing war LONDON (AP) A rough new phase in the cod fishing var loomed Wednesday after British trawlermen resolved to move into richer grounds off Iceland. In anticipation of difficulties building up, Britain recalled Ambassador John McKenzie rom Reykjavik for con- sultations with Foreign Secre- tary Sir Alec Douglas-Home and other officials. The quarrel centres on the ex tension by Iceland last Septem- ber of its fishing grounds to 50 from 12 miles in the interests of conservation. Iceland's econ- omy rests mainly on its fishing industry. The British, who have been working Icelandic waters for generations, will not recognize Ehe new limits. The ?Uer- national Court of Justice, mean- while, has not yet ruled on the validity of Iceland's claim. Since September Icelandic gunboats have cut the trawling lines gear of more than 30 Brit- ish vessels, A BL1NDIWG EXPERIENCE Conquering his fears ond over- coming blindness was n haiYowmg experience for Maurice who went blind when he was 32.
