"With exports and domestic need, most of the barley grown Uiis past season will be able to be delivered, meaning fire- price sales should cease. "Farmers don't need to un- load barley at less than mar- ket price." Mr. Turner, speaking Mon- day at a meeting for the open- ing of a new bushel elevator at Radisson, Sask. noted that record exports of some 700 million bushels had teen achieved in the 1970-71 crop year. This year and in the future, he said, the grain handling sys- tem would have to gear up to handle ever increasing amounts. "We should set capacity t "may be necessary to look it increasing terminal capacity 'ven though our present facil ties have not been pushed to Along with these changes vould he others such as a re- luction in the number of coun- rv elevators.

Beginning Monday, Nov. 15, Gulf Canada's retail out- lets from cost to coast will hon- or the Chargex card in addi- jon to the company's own Travel Card, for purchases of all products and services. Par- ticipating Gulf Canada service stations will also accept U.S. BankAmericards and related Bank Charge cards, which have reciporcal agreements with Charges. "Now that Chargex is na- tional, it makes good sense to jrovide its three million hold- ers with the added convenience of Gulf Canada products and said R. T.

Such materials in the Bow River promote the growth of plants which then die and de- compose. "It's almost impossible to travel by boat from here down- stream in some places the stench of the dead plants along Ilie shores is ruininE recreation- al activity." A tertiary treatment facility would cost, about S12 million, he told a University of Calgary luncheon, but "this is a debt taxpayers will have to decide on." The city put. a secondary treatment plant into operation a year ago which removes ma- terials that consume oxygen in the water.
