Farm Credit Board Not The Answer EDMONTON (CP) A fed- eral provincial agricultural credit board is not the answer to farmers' difficulties, Uni- an organization of AI- herte Fanners and their asso- ciates, said here. A prepared statement quoted Paul Babey, Unifarm presi- dent, as saying high interest rales would make borrowing from a farm credit agency un- profitable, especially with Ihe small returns farmers now are receiving. DISCRIMINATION SEEN Mr. Babey said regarding the kind of credil board recom- mended by the federal govern- ment's task force on agricul- ture, that no amounl of credil structuring will correct the sit- nation unless farmers' returns are brought into line with the cost of borrowing. Mr. Babey said the task force recommendation for removal of all .agricultural subsidies is "an example of continuing dis- crimination against the food producer." other industries are protected by tariffs, import quotas or special tax conces- sions Canada has expected its agricultural industry to operate under a different set of Mr. Babey said.

Fear Must Be Conquered Is Unlocked By JOHN MIKA Special to Herald ABOARD S. S. MANHAT- TAN After all the expense, the technological expertise and data-gathering research it still boils down to man conquering fear before he unlocks the door to the unknown. And the Manhattan, which has turned around to head home from her second voyage of discovery, has aboard Ihe combination of daring and data for unlocking the frigid doors to ths vast northern treasure house. Parts of the combination were found in an old and oft- used drawer labelled Newton's Second Law. And another part was found in the courage of skilled semanship which could bring the command to paraphrase 'damn the icebergs, full speed ahead' because beyond Ihe fearsome mountains of ice could be spotted telltale greenish cracks and tiny patches of blue water. Together, this combination has done more than prove that oil can be shipped through the frozen ocean. It could be as important to the development of the whole Arctic as the trans- continental railway was to the south. Spinning off the same com- bination, with only minor va- riations in the sequences ac- cording to locality are these other possibilities cited, for others, by excited northerners. Al Pond Inlet on the north- east coast to Baffin Island where Manhattan came within almost a score miles last week, Ihe vision arises of a year- round dock nearby for loading huge iron ore carriers. Only 60 miles inland, Baffin- land Iron Mines Ltd. has the biggest high-grade iron dis- covery in the world with drill- ing t e s t s indicating 127.7 mil- lion tons of ore averaging al- most 70 per cent a mountain of iron pure enough to strip and ship direct, with- out leaving piles of tailings as a mixed blessing with the jobs, railway and new townsite it means for Eskimo and whites alike. The Manhattan's side trip to this vicinity proving that sea lift was possible outside of the six-week ice-free period .is a vital step towards a proposed million investment before the iron gets to market. The Eskimo community of Arctic Bay, more than 450 miles north of the Arctic Circle could be the first to benefit in the eastern Arctic from Man- hattan's feasibility studies. Texas Gulf Sulphur, which owns a property in nearby Sirathcona Sound proven at 12 million tons could produce up to tons of concentrates annually, mostly h i g h-grade zinc but some lead and silver to. If the company goes ahead, with the help of ice-breaking ore carriers, it is expected to provide jobs for up to 70 Arctic Bay Eskimos. The optimistic talk Is that It will go into pro- duction in two years as the first working mine in the east- ern Arctic. There's eager speculation in Frobisher Bay too bustling distribution and administrative centre of complete with a busy jetport and a high-rise complex of apartment-hotel, of- fice and commercial slralfigically located between the entrance gates to the Northwest Passage and Hud- son Bay. Turning Hudson Bay into a year-round shipping route to the geographical heartland of Canada now is within the realm of possibility. Lloyd's of London's refusal to provide insurance for ships en- tering Hudson Strait between October and July already ignored by small Russian freighters with ice-breaking ca- pabilities which sail to Church- ill up to December may fall by Ihe wayside. The Manhattan which is being considered for the U.S. grain run to India and Paki- stan herself has left visions in her wake of massive wheat carriers and ore ships some- day loading at Churchill and punching through the winter ice to open water inside of 10 days. Besides shipping cargoes oul, Ihe huge ice-breaking ships might bring supplies to Can- ada's north in the future. Each summer for the past decade, the Canadian Coast Guard has landed about tons of supplies for government installations along the Arctic coastlines and has had to em- ploy a fleet of almost 30 of its own and chartered ships to do it. A single super-ship could de- liver twice the quantity in a month-long voyage at any time of the and much more than Chat amount will be need- ed soon to meet the supply de- mands of a resources boom that is rapidly gathering way.

Alaska's north slope o 11 devel- opment, then they also will vital to Canada's Arctic oil fu- ture which, potentially, is much richer. The Canadian Petroleum As- sociation recently took all estimates of oil companies ex- ploring in Canada and com- puted an ultimate oil potential totalling 120 billion barrels for all the sedimentary areas in the country and oh fa conti- nental shelves. About 50 billion barrels, just over 40 per cent of total Ca- nadian potential lies in the Arctic Archipelago and the Mackenzie Delta. That's al- most double the estimated po- tential of Alberta, Saskatch- ewan and Manitoba put togeth- er. "Between the Leduc discov- ery in 1947 and 1969, the oil in- dustry spent some billion on exploration in Canada, in- cluding only about million in the points out Harry Woodward, chief of the mineral section in the Northern Econ- omic Development Branch in Ottawa. "By those figures, we can expect that the oil industry will spend to billion north of the Arctic circle in the decade or two to realize the po- tential that is there." Japan Plans Probe On Coking Coal TOKYO (AP) Japan over- seas Coking.Coal Development Co. said today it plans to inves- tigate the possibility of develop- ing coking coal resources in Canada amd Australia. The investigations will cover certain areas in Alberta and certain regions in New South Wales and Queensland prov- inces of Australia. The company said it hopes tt will be able to develop new coal resources in Canada and Aus- tralia capable of supplying Japan with tons of cok- ing coal a year. Canada and Australia already are substamtial suppliers of cok- ing coal to the Japanese steel industry. In Alberta, Mclntyre Porcu- pine Mines Ltd. has a contract to deliver tons of coal to Japan starting Aug. 1. The 50-year contract is esti- mated to be worth at current prices although the contract contains a price-escal- ation clause. Mclntyre's operation Is at Grande air miles northwest of it has leased acres con- taining a low-volatile coking coal. The company mines coal for shipment to Japan where it is converted into coke.
