Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 3, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, May 3, 1973 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 11 Despite grains demand Farmer cautious about market WINNIPEG (CP) Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian Wheat Board, says Canada's farmers appear to be taking a balanced ap- proach to grain production in the face of buoyant market de- mands this year. In a speech prepared for de- livery by W. E. Jarvis assist- ant deputy minister of agricul- ture, to the annual meeting to- day of the Canada grains coun- cil, Mr. Lang said farmers re- gard the market cautiously. BALANCE NEEDED He said a Statistics Canada report on seeding intentions suggests, however, that farm- ers should achieve the right bal- ance in terms of production. He added that more summerfallow acreage should be devoted to growing of wheat, barley and rapeseed. "Production planting inten- tions reveal a balanced ap- proach to production I think about the right balance, if not the right level of cropping. This augors well for a continuing and soundJy-based diversified farm, economy on the prairies." Some agnculture officials ex- pi ecsed concern earlier in the that farmers might re- spond to international wheat srwtages by planting too much wheat, to ffe detriment of bar- lev and oilseed lequirements. Mr. Lang said Canadian bar- ley is established as an import- ant factor in the world feed grain market. "We have competed hard to gain a foothold in this market and I am certain that the Can- adian economy will benefit if we place our dependence on several crops and markets in- stead of depending almost ex- clusively on one." World market conditions indi- cated Canadian farmers could expect a continued high level of wheat export opportunities, at a level almost double the av- erage of the last two decades. CHANGES REQUIRED Referring to a Grains Coun- cil stody of Canada's grain- handling and transportation sys- tem, Mr. Lang said there is no doubt that changes are needed. "It is true that we have achieved record performance in the system in the past couple of years, but it is also true that we have been moving very close to the limits of the sys- tem." Mr. Lang said the factor of rising costs "assumes increas- ing importanee as we handle bigger and bigger volumes of grain. Smaller volumes msan even higher unit costs While some elevators may close and some rail lines may be abandoned as a result of efforts to improve the grain transportation and handling sys- tem, new facilities and improve- ment of some existing facilities should make a big difference. Mr. Lang warned council members that the Canadian grain system should not be 'studied to death." "It is imperative that grain companies are not faced with an ever-worsening financial po- sition because costs cannot be held down. The government is looking to the council to pro- vide proposals as soon as pos- sible." Mr. Lang said also he hopes within a few months to an- nounce a program for the do- mestic marketing of feed grains.

"I am surprised and amused by the furor that has arisen over a matter about which I have made no complaint." At no stage has there been proof of a bug being placed in the mayor's office or of a tele- phone being tapped, he said in an interview. Roy Wilson. Social Credit MLA for Calgary-Bou, told the legislature last week he hsd re- ceived reports that was the subject of elec- tronic eavesdropping He referred to reports over a local radio station 'that elec- tronic spy devices were install- ed in the mayor's office. "I have made no statement at all, at any time about this mat- the mayor said. His executhe assistant An- drew Marshall later said: ''It (the possibility of eavesdrop- ping) was a matter of concein. It no longer is." Felice Chief Brian Sawyer and an Alberta Government Telephones spokesman confirm- ed they have had no requests to investigate possible bugging of the mayor's office.

Afriat of the Uni- versity of Waterloo told a Um- of C law a audience that 1 the index is designgd to serve simple 'social j aids tick' j and that it is of questionable' statistical validity. The index, prepared b} Statis- tics Canada, is based on prices o." goods and services that make up a laige part of typical fam- ih spending It is the basis by vhich increases in the cost of living are measured Prof. Afriat said the index is a "homogenous" mathemapical that adds up all ccnsumpuan end dmdesby the population to produce an aver age figure. In a series of complex math cmatical criculaticns. he pro posed what be called a "simple lerredv' for distcnaons in he homogenous index The proposed new svstem would treat high-and low-in- come groups separably, instead of assuming that each had the same pattern of spending.
