Near the end of the week, however, there was a glimmer of acceptance. "It has to be regarded as a positive approach to try and eliminate one of the bugbears of grain production in Western Canada-the violent fluctuation of income levels from year to year," A. M. Rundman of Winnipeg, president of United Grain Growers Ltd., said Friday in an Interview. Basically, the Prairie Grab) Stabilization Plan will be a fund, with contributions from the federal government and grain producers, to ensure the industry's income level in any one year will not fall below the average of the previous five years. "We now are faced with tin government's final intentions and our altitude now should be one of accepting this as being POWs remembered WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon proclaimed Friday  national Week of Concern starting Sunday for Americans who are prisoners of war or missing in action. The proclamation pledges tint "we will neither forget them nor abandon them." About 1,600 Americans are missing or known to have been captured in the Vietnamese war. the plan which will be put into effect," Mr. Rundman said. Dobson Lea, president of Alberta's Unifarm, said bis organization was disappointed about the federal rejection of its suggestion that part of the fund be supported through a two-price system for grain. That proposal called for higher prices for grain used on the domestic market with the difference between it and the export price being paid into the fund to help reduce farmer con-tributions. G . L. Harrold, president of the Alberta Wheat Pool, said the removal of the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act marks "abandonment ... of the principle that the people of Canada should share in maintaining a normal stock of grain in a marketable position." ill R0THMAMS CALENDAR OF COMING EVENTS Plawhtg s coomsnHy mtstT Tkn mirrs a Rothmans Spadil Evints Ctrsna now.

He had been asked by Opposition Leader Robert St airfield whether there are any plans to revive the program of voluntary controls. Mr. Benson said this information would have to come from Consumer Affairs Minister Ron Basford-who was not in the chamber-but "for quite some time" the government has been looking at programs that might be used if needed." No eondu-atons had yet been reached. Asked by David MacDonald (PC-Egmont) whether the programs are being discussed with the provinces, Mr. Benson said the studies have not reached the point where useful talks could be had with the provinces. The minister said he would consider a suggestion by Mr. Stanfldd that the studies be made public.

He said in an interview that this would deprive him of a chance to put on record his research into the pollution dangers' of the tanker route to B.C. communities. Mr. Anderson's attempt to hold meetings of bis Commons environmental committee in Vancouver and Victoria got a setback Thursday when a motion to that effect was shelved indefinitely. His suggestions that cabinet ministers not make public statements on a proposed Mackenzie Valley pipeline until more research is done has put him in the bad books of some ministers, he says.

The federal government also should be approached by the provinces to bring about immediate implementation of the proposed new system of unemployment insurance benefits. Mr. Jamha said this certainly was one area in which there could be immediate action. The federation also recommended tka removal of the 11-per-cent sales tax on building materials. The provincial government was urged to increase public spending, especially in areas cl low-cost housing developments, education facilities, recreation and day-care centres, community clinics, hospitals and development of secondary industry. The brief criticized this year's proposed Alberta budget, which suggested less public spending this year than last. "Rather than reducing public expenditures, which win retard economic growth, your government should move immediately to increase public works programs." Coal dust pollution under study VICTORIA (CP) - Resources Minister Ray Williston said Friday the British Columbia Research Council is studying the problem of controlling coal dust pollution. Speaking during debate on his department's estimates, Mr. Williston said this is one of the projects aided by the $215,-000 allocated to environmental-quality studies. The problem is particularly acute in the Roberts Bank deepsea port area, 20 miles south of Vancouver, and along the route of the unit coal trains bringing the coal to the port from southeastern B.C. There are no regulations now, Mr. Williston said, because there is little information available on the control of coal dust particles.
