Mrs. Carney said if was un- usual to see the top honors in an obedience show be taken by such young dogs. "Most obedience schools will not accept a dog until it is at least six months old.

ONUS ON DRIVER j Drivers arc legally respon- sible for ensuring that passen- gers do not interfere with the proper operation or control of the vehicle in utiieh they are 1 riding. The grain quota system be- ing used in Canada this year may be too rigid, said N. Malm, vice-president of the Alberta Wheat Pool. He said it may not allow pro- ducers to take advantage of market opportunllics which may develop from the end of October. The system this year is based on the recommendations of the Boden Committee which seeks separate quotas for each grain, along wifh a requirement of each producer to assign acres to specific grains of his own choice. Mr. Malm said in a release, that this aspect of the report vis incorporated through a re- quirement by the Canadian wheat board. Prior to begin- ning delivery in the crop year, each producer must allocate specific acres of his crop to grains of his choice. Changes in this assignment were possible to the end of Oc- tober through a system which included a statutory declara- tion by the producer. Changes were not permitted beyond that date. "This system is convenient and efficient from an adminis- trative he said. As the crop year progresses, he said, it is becoming evident that the rigidity and complex- ity of the quota" system is like- ly to inhibit Canada's ability to react quickly to grain market opportunities. This, combined with un- predictability in world grain! markets, will make it difficult I to obtain from producers ade- j quate amounts of certain j grains to satisfy such oppor-: tunities. j The rigidity and complex sys- j tern developed partly because of the need for cash which has caused farmers to transfer j quota acres to grains for which current quotas promise to pro-, i vide quick returns. i He said this removes quota acres from grains which could develop as market opportuni- ties at a later date. Mr. Malm suggests Dec. 31 would be a better date for the producer quota adjustment deadline. He said the present quota sys- tem may be providing protec- tion for speculators in the grain market through the predicUbil- ily of deliveries. This is especially true In tiro case of off-hoard grams, in which Ihe quantity to be delivered is very predictable, and the market can be played accordingly, he said. 70JOOO see garden The Nikka Yuko Centennial j Garden had an estimated visitors thus year, more; than in 1970.
