Ths source, who asked not to be identified, saici the first candidate in the field to succeed Mr. Roberts would be Education Minister William Davis, 42. Mr. Roberts, 53, who has remained non-ccmmital about his retirement, has been Conservative premier for nine years. Storm tragedy is incomprehensible Dan Turner of Hie Ot- tawa bureau of Canadian Press is touring (lie Hast I> a k I s I a n disaster area. By BAN 'I'UKNEK PATUAKHAU, East Paki- stan (CP) 'Hie townsman and the western journalist stood at the centre of a tight ring of spectators who had gathered to watch the two speak English under the hoi sun. They discussed the killer cy- clone and tidal wave that had swept. oCC the Bay ol Bengal two weeks before, killing' hundreds of thousands of peasants and leaving survi- vors with flattened homes, dead cattle and eiupiy fields. The journalist pointed to a man lying in Hie dust beside them. Asked if the man was dying, Sugar beet subsidies proposal turned down OTTAWA (CP) Farm dele- gates discussing the federal pol- icy proposals on fruits and veg- etables Friday rejected most of the recommendations. A federal policy report re- leased last Ag- riculture in the proposals ranging from free trade in potatoes between Can- ada and the U.S. to ending sugar L'eet subsidies in Alberta. Your NEW Authorized Dealer JEEP" TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. Cor. 3rd Ave., 3rd St. S. Phone 327-1418 Delegates al the third and final day of an agricultural con- gress said they rejected the pro- posal for free trade in potatoes as well as overtures toward free trade in carrots, onions, tin-nips and cranberries. They also found unsatisfac- tory recommendations that "Nova Scotia orient Us market- ing policies (in apples) toward penetration of the U.S. market." Nova Scotia's potential in this market is more "illusiviary than real.11 Delegates agreed, however, that Canada should negotiate with the U.S. in order to find "relief against dumping or in- jury from low-priced imports." OMITTED SEGMENTS The delegates were unani- mous in "deploring the omission from the federal report of im- portant segments of agricul- naming floriculture, nursery, honey, maple syrup and mushroom production. They supported a statement by the sugar beet industry which outlined what they called "many errors and wrong con- clusions" in tiie federal policy proposals. The proposals said the sugar beet industry was only main- tained for defence considera- tions against high priced sugar imports from other countries. The sugar beet association 'presented a statement saying I that industry also provided la cash crop bringing money to farmers who "must wait for the 'returns of some other enter- prises." It fits admirably in crop rota- tion and provides good feed for cattle fattening. SASK. RHODES SCHOLAR SASKATOON (CP) Robert C. McKenzie, 21, of Eegina, has been named Rhodes Scholar for Saskatchewan for 1971. the townsman said: "Yes." "Is there no one to help asked the journalist, "No was the reply. "He is, a beggar man. Let the will of Allah be done." Nearby, the Pakistani mili- tia was loading bags of relief supplies to be shipped to the disaster area. "Why were others not help- ingV the journalist asked. "Some students at the uni- v e r s i I y helped said the townsman. IT'S INCOMPREHENSIBLE To the westerner, the trag- edy here is incomprehensible. There is a wealth of sup- plies brought in by foreign countries resting at Dacca in the north and desperately needed by the survivors in the south. Those supplies now sure moving by paid ferry. During the first week fol- lowing the cyclone, those fer- ries moved up and down the rivers as they normally do, carrying normal trade and passengers while bodies rot- ted and survivors shivered a few hours boat travel away. Government leaders la- mented that supplies dropped in delta depots were not being distributed through the shal- low waters of the region be- cause small boats there had been destroyed' by the storm. Hundreds of small boats were visible only miles away survivors had to wait for the helicopters and tests of the British, Americans and French. At a headquarters here; south of Dacca and on lite western fringe of the disaster area, joint British-Pakistani relief officers found they had to pay local people five rupees for each burial of flood vic- tims. DEMAND PAY At Barisal, an angry British corporal, struggling to get his five-soldier team into the re- lief area, found that laborers who gave momentary assist- ance moving equipment into a ship demanded payment. Some Westerners under- stand this. These are poor people who have geared them- MOLSON GOLDEN Get together with friends ...and Molson Golden the easy-going beer with the light-hearted flavour. Molson Golden the great Set-together beer! selves to nothing except sur- vival sinerc they were born. But a higher level under- standing is more difficult. No government official has ever really explained why Paldslani helicopters were nol moved in from West Pakistan after the cyclone anil why they avc only starling to come Nor has anyone said why the army and militia were not mobilized to help bury the dead and move relief until well over a week after the dis- aster. The Dacca Daily Express, in bold letters on its front page last week, said nature was not UK only villain of this tragedy. Low-income farnie1 plight up in air OTTAWA (CP) The plight of the low-income fanner was eft generally unresolved by Ca- nadian agriculture congress del- egates here. Skim milk surplus evaporates OTTAWA (CP) Dairy in- dustry changes have come too 'ast to permit a coming to grips vith some recommendations in federal proposals for farming in the 1970s, delegates at the sec- ond agricultural -congress said lerc. Those changes apply both do- mestically and in export mar- cets, said the final dairy indus- ry report. "As an illustration the jkim milk powder markets are rot now burdened with the al- most unmanageable surpluses hat were in evidence when the ask force was in session." The report was commissioned >y the federal government in 967 and was released earlier his year. Delegates in the dairy work- shop recommended tlie Cana- [ian daijy commission have as a major objective the structural adjustment the industry's noduction sector, Delegates supported the rec- jmmendation that the commis- ian announce its general pro- rrams at least five years in ad- vance while recognizing the dif- icultles involved in precision oreeasting for such. s. lengthy >eriod. They also said elimination of he support program would de- troy the industrial milk indus- ry in Canada and put a great many farm families on welfare. One of the federal report's ecommendations calls lor all irovinces to abolish the retail >rfce controls on milk. Winnipeg police get pay liike WINNIPEG (CP) The Win- nipeg police department will re- eive a 14.5 per cent wage in- crease over a two year per- od ending in 1971. The wage increase, 7.7 per :ent in 1970 and 7.5 per i" 971, will boost a first class constable's salary to slightly jetter than per year in 971. On Jan. 1 ol this year a con- table earned a month and n July 1, 1971 the constable will be making a month. A report from study sessions dealing with the government's farmer'1 proposals, sub- milted last May, says more thought has to be given to the social ramifications of sug- gested policies. The congress group said any programs to take farmers offj the land must have a number of alternatives. "Adjustment is hindered be- cause of fear of the the groap said. As well, invest- ment in land and machinery often made it difficult for farm-1 ers to move. The final report questioned j whether all the money that j would need to be spent in pro- grams to switch farmers to new occupations might be better spent in farm income support programs and more market re- search. Congress delegates said any] I programs and policies must' meet the wishes of the people involved and rural communities non-farm be i included in planning any adjust- ment policies. Any procedures that would uproot farmers must be done in such a way as to leave farmers with some dignity. CONTINUING PROBLEM The problem of "rural depo- pulation and its concomitant er- osion Of js fj continuing one that must be met with premiums m (iiosiue alter- native jobs in rural settings, the report said. Such aims might be accom- plished through an incentive system to "decentralize in- dustrial location." The government should lead the way by decentralizing gov- ernment offices and by provid- ing service in rural areas "even if this can only be done at some loss of economic efficiency." The delegates agreed with the policy recommendation that ed- ucation of the "rural young" is necessary to improve their in- come opportunities. The final. report suggested that channelling farm children into technical farm programs in school must be avoided in or- der not to reduce the "long- term cultural and employment viability" of such children.
