Conwct: CAMROSE and KILLAM AUCTION MARKETS Box 1808 Camrose, Alberta Phone (403) 672-4496 By JOHN HAY The Canadian Press The statistics of world starvation are staggering, and when Canada and about 130 other countries gather next week at the United Nations food conference in Rome, they will wrestle with the figures and probably lose. The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has esti- more than 460 million people "are permanently 40 per cent of them children. Other estimates suggest 700-800 million suffer from malnutrition, along with the disease, misery and brief lifespan that malnutrition carries with it. The FAO says agricultural aid to poor countries to help them grow their own food should grow to billion a year from the current billion. Without an enormous increase in production, the FAO predicts that developing countries' cereal production will fall 85-million tons short of needs by far more than they could afford to import and three times their import levels of 1969-72. Meanwhile, an FAO study has proposed an emergency stock- pile system for food grains, supplied by the big producing coun- tries such as Canada but financed by all industrialized countries and the oil states. But what will the conference do about these problems when it opens for 12 days next Tuesday? The Canadian delegation, led by External Affairs Minister Al- lan MacEachen, is expected to renew Ottawa's support for a stock-pile. But Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan, also on the dele- gation, has insisted that Canada and other producing countries should not be asked to finance storage alone. He adds that Ca- nadian grain the richest in the not bear the brunt of lower pricces which a plentiful world grain supply might mean. The United States, the world's largest single grain provider, also is expected to resist paying a substantially-higher aid bill when foreign aid is already being slashed by the U.S. Congress. What may emerge from the conference is agreement on a limited stockpiling system, and perhaps some commitments from rich countries for more intensive aid to agricultural de- velopment in the poor countries. If nothing else, the conference may also agree on a crucial policies are perhaps just as much to blame for starvation in Africa, Asia and Latin America as drougnt, flood and other natural disasters. Between 1968 and 1970, when wheat was still a glut on the market, the United States, Canada, Australia and Argentina cut wheat acreage to 81 million acres from more than 120 million. In Canada alone, wheat inventories fell to about 379 million bushels this year from about 1 billion in 1970. At the same time, of course, grain prices on world markets have soared. In northern India, thousands of peasants have starved while nearby shops were full of grain too expensive for them to buy. In Europe, meanwhile, grain is overflowing bins and Britain is buying some of it to feed cattle. Poor countries will have to induce unheard-of generosity from the rich if they are to get even small relief for their people from hunger's horrible pains. Alberta-B.C. boundary disputes clear hurdle OTTAWA (CP) A veteran Progressive Conservative senator suggested Thursday that British Columbia and Alberta be left to fight out boundary disputes on their own. "I did not know it was the business of Canada to tell the two provinces what their boundary should be." Senator Grattan O'Leary (Ontario) said during debate of a bill to create a three member com- mission to resolve boundary disputes between B.C. and Alberta. Representatives from each province and the federal government would serve on the commission. Senator O'Leary said he can foresee problems with the commission not being able to agree on a boundary dispute and questioned the need for such a commission, "Surely there now is some sort of boundary decided by someone." he said. "What has happened? Are the mountains BILL PASSED The bill was passed despite Senator objections and now goes to. the Commons for consideration. The B.C.-Alberta boundary- through the Rocky Mountains currently is marked on of- ficial maps as a series of broken lines. The bill would empower the boundary com- mission to survey the boun- dary line, settle disputes respecting the boundary and maintain survey monuments and other physical evidence of the boundary. Subject to the approval of the B.C. and Alberta cabinets, the federal government could order the boundary on official maps revised under the direc- tion of the commission. PROWSE SPEAKS Senator Harper Prowse said similar acts already have been passed by Alberta and B.C. and the com- missioners likely will be the director of surveys for each government involved. "At present, strip mining operations are taking place along the border of southern Alberta and southern Senator Prowse said. "Before reaching a situa- tion where someone finds an oil well on what looks like the present boundary line boundary points will be set up. changing the sinuous line on the map to a straight line."
