Farmers'1 views sought and welcome says Olson By DOUC SMALL OTTAWA (CP) Agriculture Minister H. A. Olson rejected Friday criticism that farmers are only consulted on govern- ment agriculture policy under an "illusion of negotiation." During final session of (lie second Canadian agriculture congress, Mr. Olson said much lias been done to "improve if not formalize" farmer-govern- ment consultation before poli- cies are formed. But there arc people who con- tend that policies and ideas are pre-ordained, Mr. Olson said. "This is not the case. They (policies) are not graven' in stone. Viexvs are not only Diplomatic life magazine topic LONDON (CP) Charles Eitchie, Canada's high commis- sioner to London, is featured among eight top-ranking ambas- sadors talking about life on the diplomatic circuit in an issue of the glossy magazine Harper's and Queen, Ritchie, 64-year-old native of Halif ax is quoted as saying Lon- don is "absolutely the ideal post, because it is not only a political and diplomatic centre, like some LWheat trade brisk WINNIPEG (CP) Cana- dian wheat exports during Oc- tober totalled 44.6 million bush- els, the highest total for that month since 1966, the board of grain commissioners said here. In a news release the board said exports were substantial- ly increased from the previous month's figure of 35.2 million bushels. Barley exports of. a record 21.7 milEon bushels continued to increase. Total barley clear- ances in the first three months of the crop year were 53.4 mil- lion bushels, compared to 6.3 million for the same three- month period in 1969. October exports of other grains included 4.5 million bushels of oats, ol rye, 1.4 million of flaxseed and 2.7 million of rapeseed. Wheat floor exports were es- timated to total two million bushels. 'You can have all kinds of friends and live in all sorts of worlds and cover so much dif- ferent ground." Ritchie, who became familiar with London during the Second World War when he was private secretary to the then high com- missioner, Vincent Massey, has served in Paris, Bonn, Berlin, Washington and New York as well as Ottawa during his 36- year diplomatic career. He is described in Hugh O'Neill's article, Their Excel- lencies, as "one' of the most well-known Commonwealth dip- lomats." The Canadian high commis- sioner is one of only two Com- monwealth representatives in- cluded in the ambassadorial group in the article, the other being Sir Lawrence Undo of Ja- maica, the ambassadors of France, Chile, Luxembourg, Brazil, Belgium and Spain are also featured. Harpers and Queen is the first issue of the new magazine formed by the recent merger of Harper's Bazaar and Queen magazines. Left wing waffle man will run KINGSTON, Ont. (CP) James Laxer, 29-year-old lec- turer at Queen's University here, said yesterday he will run for federal leadership of the New Democratic Party as a representative of the left wing Waffle movement. He said in an interview the NDP has become "too much of an electoral party" and tried to sell an image to the voters .so they would "buy the product and1 put the NDP into power." "That does not lead to the building of a socialist society You would only end up with the kind of thing Harold Wilson (British Labor Party leader and former prime minister) had in England." The convention to choose a successor to T. C. Douglas is scheduled for April 21-24 at Ot- tawa. Other declared candidates are John Barney, former secre- tary of the Ontario NDP, and E. C. Broadbent, member of Parliament for Oshawa-Whttby. come but sought. Perhaps, however, we should give consid- eration to a broader type of con- sultation." The agriculture department was open to such suggestions as holding congresses on a "con- tinuing basis" if a broader type is needed, Mr. Olson said. PROCEDURE ATTACKED Many farm leaders attending the three-day congress, and tte agriculture outlook con- ference that preceded it, criti- cized present procedure, saying the government went ahsad with policies before farmers and their groups had any say. In a, final speech Friday, Boy Atkinson, president of the Na- tional Farmers Union, said farmers had only been offered consultation with "the illusion of negotiation." "The congress, in fact, is after the Mr. Atkinson said. Mr. Atkinson called for more flexibility in the structure of government so a "meaningful exchange" of ideas and re- sources might take place. "The issue is one of farm peo- ple, their quality of life, their incomes, indeed the very exist- ance of rural Canada." People on farms were "anxious, upset and alienated" because govern- ment had not reacted to their needs in a "forthright way." NEEDS HUMAN ELEMENT Charles Munro, president of the Canadian Federation of Ag- riculture, told delegates that what was needed was "truly human management" of agri- cultural affairs that would lead to policy consistent with the di- vergent structures of the indus- try. Mr. Munro called for an immediate response to policy requests emerging from, the 10 per cent penalty set for default EDMONTON (CP) Al- berta municipalities which -de- fault on school requisition pay- ments in future will be charged 10-per-cent interest, the De- partment of Education an- nounced here. Officiate said the penalty will apply to requisitions for local school boards and for the school foundation program. The interest will be calculated on an annual basis. Municipalities, which collect ths requisitions through prop- erty taxes, must make pay- ments to school boards on tie 15th of March, June, Septem- ber and December and to the school foundation program on the first of May, August and November. Officials said only a small number of municipalities de- fault, usually in a dispute over the amount of the requisitions, biit some had deliberately de- layed payment and forced the school board to go to court to get the money. The interest charge would discourage this. A GOOD REASON NEW YORK (AP) At home, the seven pupils speak in the tongues of their Irish or Itriian forbears, says Assembly- man Anthony Mercorella. But at school, they speak for a good reason, he said. They found by demanding to learn Hebrew they could remain at Christopher Columbus high school, where it is taught, rather than be transferred to the new Adlai Stevenson high school, farther from their homes, Mercorella said. uptren Come to work for Alberta RECREATIONAL DIRECTORS Bowden and Lethbridge To develop, organize and administrate recreational programs for inmates In correctional institutions.

W, Calgary He described the congress as "a turning point in the history of agriculture development" be- cause tte combined structures had come together to discuss fu- ture roles. Paul Babey of Edmonton, president of Alberta's Unifarm organization, told delegates there seemed to be no real indi- cation that discussions at the congress would be used the government in deciding agricul- ture policy. "Producers cannot accept an advisory role. They insist they be given an opportunity to run thear own business." He said only "passing recog- nition" should be given to the difficulties of formulating policy through negotiations between farmers and government. "The seemingly impossible only takes a little longer." Raiders shot way through home area FREETOWN, Sierra Leone CAP) The raiders who at- tacked Conakry last Sunday savagely shot their way through a residential area where many Europeans live, highly reliable sources with contacts in the Gutoean capital reported today. They said the'raiders appar- ently were looking for the house of Amilcar Cabral, leader of the African Party for the Independ- ence of Guinea and the Cape Verde Islands, which is direct- ing the liberation movement in neighboring Portuguese Guinea. The raiders also sacked the party's headquarters in Con- akry. The single-minded efforts to free many important political prisoners in the course of the attack indicated lo diplomats and other observers here that Gutoean exiles participated in the raid. It was during the sweep through the largely. European residential quarter that the young daughter of a Yugoslav doctor was killed, sources said here. The raiders also shot up the house of Djibo Bokary, the exiled leader of the Sawaba party of the west African nation of Niger. Sources hem did not know the fate of Cabral, who spends most of his time in Portuguese Guinea and not in Conakry, nor of Bokary. Transient men flock in EDMONTON (CP) The number of transient men enter- ing the city may reach record levels this winter, officials from the social development department said here. As many as can be ex- pected, with most of them coming from other provinces, jack Watkins, program super- visor for transient men, said io an interview. This would be 200 more than the record set during the early 1960s, are 88.8 square feet of steel panel placed along the wings.

Extraordinary legal proceed- ings are under way here to set- tle once and for all who owns the treasure of the French frig- ate La Chameaii, which sank about 1725 near Louisburg en route to Quebec, Its treasure of some sil- ver and gold iously valued at up to rested for nearly 250 years under the Atlantic until treasure tatters brought it up secretly to the fall of 1965. The secret was out by the making application had expired, spring of the following year and On Sept. 8, the court issued the colonial treasure became the object of a series of law suits in Nova Scotia courts. Initially, the courts decided it should be divided with 75 per cent going to Alexander Storm of Louisburg, N.S., a draftsman working on restoration of old Fort Louisburg, and 25 per cent to five men with whom he had a partnership. LOST APPEAL His partners appealed and the Nova Scotia court of appeals awarded the whole treasure to Mr. Storm. When the partners again ap- pealed the Nova Scotia court of appeals ruled that the time for Good old Toro to the rescue LAS CONDES, Chile (AP) Tte mean-looking cowpokes jumped the sheriff and carried off his pretty, gingham-dressed girl-friend. Then they beat up a couple of Indians, laughing nas- tily as they did1 it. But wait! The sound of hoof- beats comes down tha dusty dirt street. Who is that masked man arriving in the side of time? Why, it's the Lone Ranger with his faithful Indian compan- ion Toro. Toro? "Well, you can't expect to call him Tonto here in drawled Naebo Aliaga, a San- tiago who turns cowboy on weekends. It means 'stupid' in Spanish." He packs a six-shooter and twirls the ends of las moustache as part of the entertainment at a reproduction of an Old West town, located in the foothills of the snow-capped Andes Moun- tains. During the week, Aliaga handles international legal busi- ness for Lan, Chile's national airline. INSPIRED BY U.S. "Far West with more than a score of buildings on 500 acres of rolling countryside, is the investment of a group of Santiago businessmen who became fascinated with the Old West after trips to the United States. "Far West Town" has been open to the public since Decem- ber. On a Saturday or a Sunday. some Chileans cough up 10 escudos 75 to mosey down the main street, belly up to several bars or an ice cream emporium, and to watch the 12 staged shows put on by about 20 professional ac- tors. The town has a "Jesse James" nightclub with cowgirl waitresses; a "Billy the Kid" restaurant with red-velvet lined walls and a courthouse-disco- theque which advertises "Sioux a gogo." An announcement in Spanish breaks into the theme music from Gunsmoke, playing over loudspeakers dotting the town. It's time for another show. It will demonstrate that "aqui, sietnpre gaum los good guys." The good guys always win here. Adult education co-ordinator appointed EDMONTON (CP) The ap- pointment of Richard1 Brian Staples as Alberta's first co- ordinator of adult education was announced here by Educa- tion Minister Robert Clark. Mr. Staples, 31, now is su- perintendent of the Westlock school division. He will assume his new post Jan. 1. Mr. Clark said he will work with E. J. M. Church', director of pupil personnel services for the department, in formulating government policy on adult and continuing education. this ruling, containing also in- structions that J. D. MacKiilop, sheriff of Cape Breton County, lurn over the treasure to Mr. Storm. The partners again refused to accept this decision as final and took the unusual step of asking the Supreme Court of Canada tc ignore the Nova Scotia appea: court's ruling and hear Uieir case. The Supreme Court of Canada agreed, in a decision which law- yers say may .have some unu- sual ramifications in future. MAY BE GONE Meanwhile, the object of el the legal fuss, the Le Chameau treasure, may have been spir ited out of the country. In Louisburg Friday, Mr Storm said he does not know where the .treasure is "an; that's the truth." He said it was turned' over to an agent who will "dispose of it." The agen has a "sub-agent" in New York He declined to identify them. .And in the solemn halls of the Supreme Court of Canada rolred lawyers and judges exam ined the conflicting claims about ownership. Donald A. Kerr of Halite lawyer for the partners, spen most of Friday arguing that the lower courts did not take ac count of deception by Mr. Storm of IBS five partners and over looked sictions on their par which kept the partnership alive long after Mr. Storm had at tempted" to sever it. His clients are Ronald Blun don of Dutch Brook, N.S.; Wil lard Dillon of Black Point, N.S. Joseph Nearing and Eobert D MacDonald of Glace Bay, N.S. and Hyman Goldberg of Sydney N.S. Mr. Storm's lawyer, John H Dickey of Halifax, is expected to get his innings Monday. But experts suggested tha nothing can recover the treas ure now if it has gone outside the country. Whether the proceeds of iL sale would be recoverable from Mr. Storm, if the Supreme Court of Canada reverses the Nova Scotia courts on owner ship, depends on his staying in Canada.
