Wilderness areas policy in parks won't change CALGARY (CP) Master plans for the development of national parks in the Rocky Mountains do not indicate a change in the policy of pre- serving wilderness, Keith Plowman, assistant national parks director, said Monday, Fears expressed by con- servationists that development of Banff, Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay national parks would KALE OPTICAL COMPANY ITD.

The federal government did not intend to adopt multiple-use approaches towards parks and forests that some provinces were backing. "National parks make up less than one per cent of the land area, and are of immense scientific and ecological im- portance." Public interest in national parks was growing by leaps and bounds and the development was needed to allow everyone to use the wilderness areas. The plans call for more campgrounds, improved roads and extended hiking fa-ails in the four parks. Before the plans are imple- HELP US TO HELP OTHERS!

Joint U.S.-Canada talks will cover pollution, oil OTTAWA (CP) Joint United States-Canada minis- terial talks zoom in today on Canadian demands for enlarged oil and uranium sales, in addi- tion to the concern of both coun- tries over pollution dangers. The Canada-U.S. auto agree- ment was also expected lo come up. The two-day meeting was ex- pected to produce a joint com- munique outlining issues dis- cussed by the U.S. cabinet sec- retaries and Canadian minis- ters. Canada has been pressing the U.S. for years to enlarge quotas for Canadian oil. Canadians have also been pressing for a resumption of uranium sales to the U.S. While larger import quotas for Canadian oil may be forth- coming, it is not likely the U.S. will resume uranium imports from Canada. The value of the mineral as a source of electrical power is still undecided and predicted demand has not devel- oped. Monday, the ministerial meet- ing dealt with questions of for- eign affairs, trade and balance .of payments problems. External Affairs Minister Sharp assured the U.S. delega- tion Canada is not becoming iso- lationist in its foreign policy, but is acting only in those areas where it believes there is the greatest chance of succeeding. Canadian officials asked nu- merous questions about a prot- e c t i o n i s t trade bill already passed by the U.S. House of Representatives, sources said. Canadian grain prospects discussed at conference OTTAWA (CP) Delegates to the Canadian Agricultural Outlook Conference spent Mon- day looking at a mixed bag of prospects for Canadian grain. Despite a drastic slash in wheat seeded this 12 million acres from 24 million in the 1969 crop still face a carryover of 600 mil- Jon bushels, A. M. Runciman, president of the United Grain [rowers, told 300 delegates. The conference ends today. The carryover would leave armers with some 340 million undelivered bushels and eleva- ,or operators with some 280 in their bins. This is expensive for farmers since they nrust pay storage costs on any amount over 102 millioii bushels of wheat in ele- vators while making nothing from wheat still on the farm. The government pays storage charges on wheat over 178 mil- lion bushels under the Tempo- rary Wheat Reserves Act. And although wheat sales ex- pectations in 1971-72 and 1972-73 are between 350 and 400 million bushels, no firm figure is possi- ble, Mr, Runciman said. He also said Canada's grain handling and transportation sys- tem appears to be capable of dealing with the record volume for export this year. Despite concern about the Civic security to be examined CALGARY (CP) The fourth, and probably final, ses- sion of a public inquiry into Cal- gary's government during the last 10 years, resumes today with civic security most likely to be examined. Security at city hall, the Cal- gary Transit System and civic maintenance yards was dis- cussed in previous sessions, but usually as an aside to the thefts which dominated the opening session in September.

At the third session before Mr. Justice W. G. Morrow of the Northwest Territories, Cal- gary Mayor Rod Sykes was taken to task by members of the city legal department and Ken Walker of Toronto, the man who brought a rock show to Cal- gary July 4-5. Mr. Walker told the commis- sion he has thought of suing Mayor Sykes for slander be- cause of remarks made during the festival. The inquiry has been told that during an altercation breezeway beneath MeMahon Stadium, Mr. Sykes and Mr. Walker disagreed on whether youths outside the gates should be allowed into the last part of the show tree of charge. Mr. Walker testified he did not want them in and said Mayor Sykes swore at him, called him "eastern scum" and him of "skinning" the people. J. D. Salmon, the city solici- tor, contradicted testimony from the mayor and said he was never asked for an opinion on how to prevent the festival from occurring. "My department was never asked formally, but we did have several discussions in the de- partment. Wo wondered when we would bo asked about it." The legal department may have informed the mayor shout licensing requirements for the I festival, Mr. Salmon said, hut the festival did not need a lic- ence. The third session also took a look at the level of city hall morale which Chief Commis- sioner Ivor Strong described as "at a very low ebb." SAYS M011ALK POOR A former police officer, Mike Berridge. said morale was poor among police and there was "a lot of grumbling on the force be- cause it was get! ing advice from those who don't know any- thing about it." Senior officers testified that morale was low but Inspector Chris St.igg of the patrol divi- sion said lie found their testi- mony "quite alarming." "This morale question baffles j inc. I find my department has high morale and other depart-1 mcnls aro nlso hich ,-is for as 1 i ability of the system to move enough grain to terminals to meet all export requirements, the "game of balances" be- tween producers and shippers seemed to be a "fairly satisfac- tory process." FEEDS IMPORTANT Prof. J. A. K. Brown of the University o f Saskatchewan :aid use of Canada's agricul- tural resources must be ad- justed in order to meet chang- ing world conditions, including a new importance for feed grains and oilseeds. He stressed the need for more market-oriented research deal- ing with the suppiyTlemand re- lationships of available mar- kets. Attention should be given to new alternatives for Cana- dian agricultural products in world markets. Although there are bright spots in the grain outlook for 1970-71, past knowledge should make Canadians hesitant to in- terpret this into an "automatic happy and problem-free fu- ture." Prof. T. K. Warley, an agri- cultural economist from the University of Guelph, chal- lenged Canadians to overcome adverse trade conditions with the U.S. by creating increased demand for Canadian goods. He said any attempt to in- clude agricultural products in a free-trade system between the two countries would be "exceed- ingly difficult" during the present protectionist mood of the American congress. Improved demand could be achieved through more efficient production, processing, dis- tribution and packaging o! Ca- nadian products, he said. Such systems would be the re- sult of improved use of provin- cial and federal marketing leg- islation. Hike in faculties council at U of A recommended EDMONTON special rial committee has recom- mended that the general facul- ties council of the University of Alberta have equal student _and academic staff representation. The report was issued Mon- day by a five-man committee headed by University President Dr. Max Wyraan. It was sub- mitted with a minority report of dissenting member Prof. D. T. Anderson of the faculty of law. The report calls for increas- ing the council to 127 members from 79. The additional mem- bers would include 38 under- graduate students, 10 more graduate students and two non- academic staff members.

The reports will be discussed at a special general faculties meeting in January.

CFCN CHANNEL S SEE HOBBIM PRI-SENJS'HALF-HOUR WEEKLY Mr. Rogers replied that life bill, which still needs Senate and presidential approval, was not the kind of measure the ad- ministration wanted, Canadian sources said Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin stressed the danger to world trade posed by the bill, which would place severe restrictions on some forms of imports. The measure would have a grave effect on Canadian trade patterns and set back the cause of free world trade, Mr. Pepin said. CANADA HAS SURPLUS Also discussed was Canada's balance of payments surplus in trade with the U.S. Canada has built up a record current-account surplus of minimi on international deal- ings, partly by sharply reducing its deficit with the U.S. The U.S. argues that Canada should co-operate in attempts to correct a worrisome U.S. pay- ments deficit. They say a good way to start would be for Can- ada to agree to revisions of the 1965 auto pact on the ground that Canada bad the best of the deal. No firm decisions are ex- pected from the meeting, de- signed as a forum where lead- ing figures from both countries can exchange points of view.

Beauine blasts Russians UNITED NATIONS (CP) Canada charged Monday that the Soviet Union and its friends are seeking to destroy the one means by which the General Assembly can get a balanced and coherent view of what is happening in Korea. Canadian Ambassador Yyon Beauine made the charge In the assembly's main political committee as he spoke against a Soviet-sponsored resolution calling for the dissolution of the UN Commission for the Unifi- cation and Rehabilitation of Korea. He also spoke against anoth- er Soviet resolution calling for the withdrawal of UN troops from Korea. He called for pas- sage of a third resolution, co- sponsored by Canada, which would leave both the troops and the commission in South Korea. At the same time, the am- bassador chastised the Soviets and their friends for inflicting upon the General Assembly another "sterile" debate on Korea. The assembly has b e e n de- bating the issue since the end of the Korean War in which Canada and 50 other countries participated under the UN Rag. The UN Commission, known as UNCURK, and the UN troops in South Korea now are made up mostly of Americans. There is a Canadian liason of- ficer in the country.
