It found that where alterna- tives to reduced production exist production resources must be shifted to more prom- ising market opportunities. Where these alternatives cannot be found land and other resources must be retired. BLEAK READING The report made bleak read- ing in some parts for those en- gaged in agriculture In this country. The task force of five persons was named in Septem- ber, 1967, by the cabinet. It was instructed to make an assessment of agriculture in Canada in terms of its contri- bution toward the achievement of national goals with parti- cular recognition given to the income and welfare of farmers. It said governments should provide temporary, limited programs of assistance for the crop switching and land retire- ment necessary to cut surplus production. The task force emphasizes there must be programs to ex- pand demand, particularly on the international scene. PHASE OUT It found agriculture subsidies and price supports that are not effective and efficient in achieving high priority objec- tives should be phased out. Younger non-viable farmers should be moved out of farm- ing through temporary pro- grams of welfare, education and provision of jobs in other sectors of Hie economy. Older farmers should be given assistance. Improvement of manage- ment must be encouraged by providing Med money for agement training. "Management by ofojeettwg, program planning and budget- ing, cost-benefit analysis and otter modern management techniques should said the task force. "Every public policy rfeuld embrace these it delcared. The task force was tabled to the Commons by Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson. "It will assist in the develop- ment of short and long terra policies lor the benefit of farm- ers and all other said Mr. Olson. On wheat, it states that marketing of wheat should re- main under the jurisdiction of the wheat board. It calls for a transition policy for wheat and barley com- mencing in the spring of 1970.

Daily Strrics la Manitoba, Sasfctctem, Ontario and QnebK. Profile: what kind of man buys a car with an ornament like this? Mercedes-Benz takes a close look at a different kind of automobile buyer. One who isn't swept off his feet by hood-scoops, fancy stripes, and chromium plate. IT Is very nearly impossible to fit the Mercedes-Benz owner within a particular socio economic group. He may be a school teacher, or a stock-broker. But when it comes to his basic attitudes, we can make some fairly accurate assumptions. 1. Our kind of man Is a perfectionist and a seeker of quality. He regrets that the word "quality" has lost much of its true meaning in recent years through hackneyed use. 2. For that reason, our man generally dislikes puffed- up, showy advertising. He abhors attempts to manipu- late his good taste and common sense. If his car has to have advertising, he wants that advertising to make 3. A Mercedes-Benz owner usually feels closer to his car than does an owner of another make. His car is an extension of his personality. He feels that both his car, and himself, are comfortably above average. 4. By owning a Mercedes-Benz he can express his individuality, and status, without feeling or suggesting that he's a show-off. 5. How does our man feel behind the wheel? For one thing, he feels comfortable. He probably knows more about his car's superb engineering features than own- ers of other cars. He knows why he feels comfortable. The seats in his car were designed with the help of an orthopedic surgeon. And he appreciates their beauti- ful upholstery. 6. He feels secure, too. He knows that a Mercedes- Benz has non-fade disc brakes on all four wheels. An articulated rear axle designed to keep the wheels on the ground no matter how hard he drives, or how rough the road. A collapsible steering column for safety. And a specially strengthened rattle-free body that could save his, and his passengers' lives, in a roll-over accident. Now, how does the mantle of a Mercedes-Benz owner fit you? If you are still not absolutely sure, send for our illustrated brochure. And arrange for a test drive in one of our 1970 models on display at the Mercedes-Benz dealers shown below.
