Olson said Tuesday he has challenged the four big farm machinery manu- facturers in Canada to do some- thing about theif high Canadian prices, but reaction has not been encouraging. Mr. Olson, in a speech to a joint convention of the Farmers' Union of Alberta and Ihe Al- berta Federation of Agriculture, indicated he has been unable to g e t satisfactory explanations from the companies on why their Canadian prices are higher than in other market areas. The minister said he has talking to trade officials in Czechoslovakia, Romania and j Japan to see whether machin- ery from these countries could find a market in Canada and provide increased competition. The "big four" companies were identified as "Massey-Fer- guson, International Han ester, John Deere and Ford." Mr. Olson noted that the re- cen! royal commission report on Ihe industry s'ngled out the four companies l.e mentioned for "most serious" criticism for charging higher prices in Can- ada than in Europe for the same tractor. He said he had asked the companies "lo offer some ex- planation" of Ihe commission findings and had also "chal- lenged them to do something voluntarily, or at least advise me as to what might be done, to correct these discrepancies." "I might say that the results of the meetings with Iliese com- panies have, to date, been somewhat less than encourag- I ing." Mr. Olson said Komania, Czechoslovakia and Japan say i they can produce tractors to sell I in Canada at "substantially less I retail cost" than what farmers pay now. But he noted that nil' costs of actually marketing the' tractors in Canada have not been assessed.

After the arrest Monday, the FBI described Gambino's role in the alleged plo! as providing "automobiles for the robberv and a means to dispose of (be money." GambEno, 67, was freed in bond after being ar- raigned before U.S. Commis- sioner Earle Bishopp. The armored truck which al- legedly was to Iw hijacked was to deliver new money and pick up old bills from Chase .Manhattan Bark branches in Ihe city, said Daniel V. Holt- man, chief of a justice depart- ment strike force organ- ized crime in Manhattan. Federal officials did not olfer any explanation why the alleged plot, said to have been put to- gether between March 1 and May 15, 1969, never was carried out. Gambino, described by a So- ers in [he United Slates." has been appealing a 1966 federal deportation order which is based on his entry info Ihe United States as a 19-year-old stowaway. He is a native of Pal- ermo, Sicily. In addition lo his position as. the reputed overlord of organ- ized crime, federal authorities say Gambino heads the 1.000- mennber Mafia family whose former ruler, Albert Anaslasia, was slain in 1957. Garr.bino has been described in published reports over the years as controlling Brooklyn waterfront rackets and having a large slake in construction, labnr, gambling and loan shark nickels.
