Replying to a question by John Diefenbaker Mr. Lang said he had received the request from Sas- katchewan Premier Ross Thatcher. He said it was impossible to separate Saskatchewan wheat from the surplus of other prov- inces "without doing damage" to the storing, handling and dis- tribution system. Moreover, such barter ar- rangements would threaten the stability of international whea prices, he said. They would sun ply become a substitute for cash sales. Mr. Diefenbaker's claim tha in wheat could be disposed of in the deal was the "sheerest Mr Lang said.

The bureau also reported that the index of farm prices of agri- cultural products in March. based on 1961 prices equalling 100, rose fractionally to 116.6 from ,116.4 in February this year. Prices were higher for cattle and potatoes, but lower for eggs. W.dntidav, May 1.7, 1970 THE lETHBKIDGC HERALD 23 Technique Aids Stutterers LOS ANGELES (AP) The hissing of a waterfall is music to a 'stutterer's ears, the sound that may help Km correct his speech defect, re- searchers say. Dr. Marvin E. Klein, a De- troit psychiatrist, says that No Subsidies For Dealers DETROIT (AP) General Motors and Ford have disclosed plans to eliminate all subsidies to fleet, rental and leasing buy- ers'of their cars with the start of the 1971 model year. GM dealers in Canada and the United States were notified of the plan in letters from the gen- eral sales managers of the cor- poration's five car divisions. A Ford spokesman said deal- ers will be advised of the deci- sion in the near future. Both companies indicated the only exception to the elimina- tion of the subsidies would be on federal government sales. Subsidies usually consist of a cash allowance to the selling dealers, allowing them to quote a more favorable price on sales to those.who purchase a large number of vehicles. Neither of the other two major and American made any move to drop such subsidies. for some unexplained reason a person will slop stuttering 65 out of 100 times if the sound of his own voice is kept from his ears. Klein and Thomas P. Mat- thews, director of the Speech Rectification Centre here, are testing an instrument to shield a stutterer from his own voice and yet permit him to hear other people. The device involves two ear pieces similar to those in con- ventional hearing aids, a throat microphone and an electronic unit the size of a small transistor radio. WORKS AUTOMATICALLY When the stutterer starts talking, the sound is picked up by the throat microphone, which in turn pipes a low hiss- ing sound to his ears. When he stops talking, the micro- phone shuts off and he bean normally. The masking sound, layi Matthews, "is random noise below 500 cycles which soundi not unlike a waterfall." Dr. .William H. Perking, speech clinic director at Uni- versity of Southern Califomis, told reporters Monday that re- sults indicate the device is more than twice as effective as traditional methods of treating stuttering, which af- fects one person in 100. The speech rectifier, said, has worked 67 per cent of the time. NUMBER FOUR The present Madison fourth in history- was completed in 1968. 3 DAYS ONLY THURS. FRI. SAT.
