Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, November 28, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 1 Trudeau promises to be humble and give credit where it is due OTTAWA (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau promis- ed Wednesday to be humble and to give credit where it is due if opposition parties can pave the way for a new federal provincial oil agreement. "I'll be very humble, Mr. Speaker, just like he said during a light moment of his Commons speech on the budget. Referring to a federal-provincial meeting planned for next spring, Mr. Trudeau said it would be "so much easier for me" if the New Democrats can get the NDP premiers of Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia to reach some agreement in advance. "And, if by some miracle, the Conservatives can get a policy agreement among premiers Moores (New- Hadfield (New Davis (On- tario) and Lougheed (Alberta) then I'll go before the TV cameras and say 'this policy was developed for the people of Canada by the leader of the NDH and the leader of the Conservatives.' "That is, if they're still leaders by then His leadership reference was to Conservative Leader Robert Stanfield's announced intention to step down and to an NDP leadership convention scheduled tor next July to replace David Lewis, defeated in the July 8 election. Ed Broadbent (Oshawa Whitby) is acting as NDP parliamentary leader and is considered a prime can- didate for the leadership.

DHUBRI, India (Reuter) The Goalpara district of the Indian state of Assam presents a uiicrocqsm of the problems facing millions of people in the developing world. Food production has failed to keep up with population growth and the result is famine. Until 1970, the area, which relies almost entirely on agri- culture, was self-sufficient in food. In 1971, the shortage was tons of grain. Damage caused by floods increased the deficit to about 70.000 tons in each of the last two years. Part of the shortage has been made up by grain brought in from other states but drought, lack of fertilizers and rising prices have meant that the demand cannot be met.
