Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta JO THE lETHBRmOE HcRAlP Tuesday, November 34, WO Tlie man ivho said no io de Gaulle Prairie wheat farmers pocketbook to suffer lor ABIDJAN, ivory Coast (Reu- Icr) Sunday's invasion of Guinea followed charges made as recently as October hat while mercenaries ami stateless Africans were training in neigh- boring Portuguese Guinea an attack. President S'ckou Toure in Sep- tember announced the arrest in Guinea of foreign mercenary troops whom he claimed were trained in Portuguese Guinea. Toure, one of Africa's most forceful and indepndent leil- Hing leaders, first won head- lines as "the man who said no to Charles de Gaulle. Guinea was the only French territory to vote "non" in the ISSB referendum on Frances tvw constitution. The small West African state left the French union, automatically gaining independence. Toure be- came is first president Oct. 2, 1058. he said at the time "prefers poverty in freedom to riches in slavery." COUNTRY IS RICHEST Nevertheless, 12 years after independence, Guinea is West A I r i c a 's richest nation. Al- though about 85 per cent of its population 3.5 million lives off the land, Guinea's main for- eign exchange earnings come from the mining and export of bauxite, alumina and iron ore. By cutting off economic aid after the 1958 referendum vote, France plunged Guinea into a major crisis. But Toure sought and received aid from other Western countries arid from the Soviet Union and China. Guinea's army is equipped mainly with Soviet, Czechoslovak and Chinese weapons. The capital city of Conakry, where an invasion force landed Sunday, lias a population of It is situated on a low- lying peninsula connected to the mainland by only a causeway and is an open target for a sea- borne invasion. The country has been involved in disputes with both East and West. In 1961, Toure accused the Soviet ambassador of com- plicity in a plot and expelled him. ACCUSES PARIS tn 1905, Guinea went further into isolation when it suspended relations with France, charging Paris with encouraging a plot to overthrow Toure's government. The allegations of French complicity in a plot to over- throw the government was re- peated in 1989, when 12 persons including three former cabinet ministers, were sentenced to death for plotting to overthrow Toure with French help. tn 1966, Guinea held the United States responsible for the detention of a party of Gui- nean officials on hoard an American plass on a transit stop in Ghana. In retaliation, Toure placed American Ambas- FKESIDENT TOURE Forceful Leader OTTAWA (CP) The federal government appears willing to live with an inventory of 600 million bushels of wheat for a few years and this is going to cost Prairie wheat farmers a lot Woman charged in theft case EDMONTON (CP) A 23- year old Montreal woman was charged with possession of 000 worth of jewelry stolen in an armed robbery Sept. 22 near Cologne, West Germany. Dinnne M. Kappos was re- manded io Nov. 30 when she ap- peared in magistrate's court. Police said she was arrested after detectives went to a down- town restaurant and saw a wo- man showing assorted jewelry of money, A. M. Hiinicman, president of United Grain Grow- ers Ltd., said here. Mr. Rimicnian, speaking at the agricultural outlook confer- ence, presented figures indicat- ing the inventory at July 31 next year would be about 620 million bushels, 280 million in elevators and 348 million on farms. The government pays storage charges on wheat over 178 mil- lion bushels under a temporary wheat reserves act and agricul- ture Minister H. A. Olson has said wheat quotas will not ex- ceed eight bushels an acre. This means farmers will have to keep grain on the farm instead of delivering it to elevators and being paid for it. Mr. Runicman said while farmers are being told to expect wheat sales in 1971-72 and 1972- 73 of between 350 and '100 mil- lion bushels a "precise figure is impossible." "The one thing we know Is that we don't he said. "The wheat board doesn't know, grain traders here and around the world don't know and maybe it's important to admit this and take steps that will make allowance for this un- certainty." He said it is important not to believe that anyone can predict Sales volume or price a year from now. Considerably more than an outlook or an estimate of how much acreage should be seeded influences a farmer's decision and a recommended wheat acreage of 20 million acres next year "is of little value." Mr. .Runicman said quotas, the amount of grain farmers can deliver from each seeded acre, are more important and the government has suggested advising farmers on the amount that will be permitted to be de- livered to elevators during the crop year ahead. "If such a program is fol- lowed, the wheat quota should be a firm figure but the barley, oats, rapeseed, rye and flax could be given as minimums Approve loans OTTAWA (CP) Loans to- talling to assist in con- struction of two sewage treat- ment projects Alberta have been approved, the federal gov- ernment announced today. Steve Lake gets a loan of to help build a sewer and lift station. The village of Spruce Grove gets assist in con- struction of a sewer and stabilization pond. The loans are provided under the National Housing Act. with indicated possibilities for larger quotas." Mr. liunciman said there is a potential for feed wheats of three to four million acres and a 100 million-bushels feed wheat crop could offer potentials not only as a food grain other than for bread but also in the eastern feed market as more than 40 per cent of Ontario's processed feed goes into bird seed. That market does not use barley and feed wheat usually yields more than spring wheats. He said if his interpretation on lower inventories in eleva- tors is correct, "say 60-per-cent full instead of 80 to 90 per it will discourage the construction of annexes by ele- vator companies and hasten clo- sure of some elevators. There is room for discussion about allowing feed grains to move freely within designated areas, Mr. Runciman said. "But more important fe that government policies should lean toward letting (hose farmers who can produce most effi- ciently be as free as possible from artifical barritrs." If Western Canada can grow energy grains the cheapest, "slid should have no artificial barriers to prevent her from marketing the livestock from those grains." Mr. Runciman said the world bread wheat market is static or declining while the food wheat market is growing and the feed wheat market is growing more quickly than any other market. More than 300 representatives of farm organizations, agri-busi- ness, and federal and govern- ment officials are attending the two-day conference which ends Tuesday. sador Mcllwain Robinson under 24-hour house arrest and ex- pelled nearly 70 Peace Corps workers. Toure drew criticism from some African states when he gave asylum to his friend, for- mer president Kwame Nkru- mah, after the Ghanaian leader was ousted in February, 1966. He named Nkrumah honorary co-president of Guinea and the former Ghanaian ruler took up residence there.

New life for Bonn government MUNICH (Keuter) Tire lib- eral Free Democrats registered their second state election suc- cess in two weeks Sunday, al- laying fears of a weakened gov- ernment coalition in Bonn. Official provisional results showed the Free Democrats picked up 10 seats in the Bavar- ian state legislature, where they have been unrepresented for four years. However, the victory was largely at Ihe expense of Us So- cial Democratic partner fa the ruling West German coalition, and the election also showed an increase in strength for the Christian Democratic opposi- tion. The provisional results In- creased the representation of the Christian Social Union, Ba- varian wing of the Christian Democratic opposition, to 124 from 110 seats and reduced that of Chancellor Willy Brand's So- cial Democrats to 70 from 79. The right-wing national demo- crats lost all 15 seats which they held in the old house. In terms of the over-all vote, the Christian Social Union won 56.4 .per cent, the Social Demo- crats 33.3 per cent, the Free Democrats 5.5 per cent, and the National Democrats 2.9 per cent. The Free Democrat success underlines a resurgence of con- fidence in a party which only a month or two ago seemed on the verge of collapsing and pos- sibly bringing the Brandt gov- ernment down with it.
