HERAID Thurtday, Ottobtr 1, Slipshod Legislation Charge Made By Horner l_x V OTTAWA (CP) Jacl: Hor: I A Conservative motion to I Meanwhile representatives ot ner (PC-Crowfoot) c li a r g e a Wednesday I !i a t government members 'of Hie Commons agri- culture commillee are willing to approve "slipshod" legislation to create agriculture marketing agencies in order to have the bill passed quickly. Jerry Pringlo Val- ley) said in resporse that Mr. Homer's main aim may bi to delay passage of the bill. Bill which has been given second reading in the Commons, is currently being ex- amined by tiie committee, which is sitting during the Com- mons recess. C o n in o n s resumes sitting Tuesday. It has been traditional to prorogue the old session soon after sitting resumes and start a new session and Mr. Horner said government members of the committee want the bill passed before this session ends. The Canadian Broiler Council and the Canadian Federation of Agriculture have said the bill needs several technical amend- ments if it is going to be effec- tive. "We refuse to run slipshod through this bill when the best legal minds to appear before this committee say the bill is poorly Mr. Horner said. SHOULD STATE REASON Mr..Pringle said that if Mr. Homer's real intent was to delay the should say so clearly. The prime, minister and the provincial premiers at the fed- eral-provincial conference two weeks ago urged unanimously that passage of the bill be expe- dited so the barriers to interpro- vincial trade might be negoti- ated away. Mr. Horner said outsMf the committee that the government would have to be willing to give in to some of the Conservatives' demands for amendments. have the broiler council re-ap- pear before the committee was defeated, with Conservatives voting unanimously in favor and Liberals voting unanimously against. the Canadian Federation of Ag- riculture appeared before the committee, responding favora- bly lo some of the opposition members' criticisms the bill, and dismissing others. Paper Mills Face Weekend Strike TORONTO (CP) The United Papermakers and Pap- erworkers Union announced today it has broken off talks with Abitibi Paper Co. and will urge its members to strike the company mills this week- end. A union spokesman said talks ended with the company and a provincial conciliation officer Wednesday night and union offi- cials left today for mills to rec- ommend the membership reject the company's last offer. A strike would affect Abitibi operations in Beaupre, Quo., Pine Falls, Man., and Ontario plants in Iroquois Falls, Sault Ste. Marie, Thunder Bay and Sturgeon Falls. There are only union members involved in the dis- pute, but the strike could close plants if other Abitibi workers decide not to cross pap- ermakers picket lines. SEEK NEW CONTRACT At issue in the dispute is dur- ation of a new contract. The union wants a three-year agree- ment, but the company has of- fered only a two-year one. An- other contentious issue involves benefits and pensions. The last contract expired April 30. The union is seeking a seven- per-cent increase with a mini- mum of 29 cents in the first MASONIC LODGE BARBECUE Originally Plar--d for 702 Wing Hall Will NOW BE HELD AT THE SEA CADET HALL Cor. 17th Street and 10th Avenue South This Saturday Oct. 3rd 7 p.m. UNIVERSITY OF LETHBRIDGE CONCERT SERIES featuring the University of Alberta STRING QUARTET YATES MEMORIAL CENTRE MON., OCT. 5th P.M.

The union spokesman said the company's offer of a two-year contract calls for 27 cents in the first year, and 26 in the second. Union workers have already held a strike vote which was 95 per cent in favor of a walkout. But a strike was not called pending final conciliation with provincial officers. Tariff Walls Detrimental Says Olson GUELPH, Ont. (CP) H. A. Olson, federal minister of agri- culture, said Wednesday prov- inces cannot be allowed to erect tariff walls to restrict interpro- vincial trade. Mr. Olson said he was refer- ring to competition in the chicken and egg markets that has resulted in several prov- inces placing quotas on poultry products from other provinces. "Their motives in this respect may not be all bad but surely we cannot allow provincial con- trol over markets to proceed in such a clandestine manner.. If it is allowed to continue this kind of action will surely he detrimental to the country as a whole." He suggested that Bill C-197 to create a national marketing council would provide a solution since the agency would be capa- ble of tailoring supply to meet on a national scale. HALE 307 St. S.

Keep Public Informed Urges Mines Minister VANCOUVER (CP) The Canadian coal industry has a duty to inform the public what it is doing, Frank Eichter, Bri- tish Columbia mines minister, said Wednesday. Speaking to the 22nd Canadi- an conference on coal, Mr. Richter said: "The privilege of developing ie natural resources of the people bears it an impli- :ity responsibility to inform ie people of the care with which the resource is being de- veloped and the positive bene- ita which accrue He also said environmental control is becoming a common interest and standards of Hovrs APPLIANCES The Famous WASHER SPIN-DRYER LIMITED QUANTITY!

"When you plan the disposal of waste, don't hesitate to take a second look. Make it safe. If you can also make it essen- tially acceptable then you will be measuring up to the letter and spirit of the law. "If you can eventually make it a thing of beauty, more pow- er to you. Given time, I be- lieve this can be done." Delegates were also told that coal resources in the three western provinces total an esti- mated 118 billion tons. A sur- vey done by the federal energy, mines and resources depart- ment showed 59.1 billion tons in B.C. Gordon McNabb, assistant deputy minister of Energy, by the mid-70s Canadian coal production will likely rise to 40 million tons annually. He said new methods must be developed to allow more ef- ficient extraction of the coal, particularly from thick seams where current techniques are inefficient and expensive. Drug Cut-Off No Solution Maintains Youth Minister CALGARY (CP) The ques- tion of drug use has been over- simplified, Youth Minister Gor- don Taylor told a panel discus- sion Wednesday. 'I don't think a cut-off of the supply of drugs would solve our problem. "Drugs aren't a problem but a symptom of more basic prob- lems in our society." The minister said he favors placing marijuana under the Food and Drug Act as recom- mended by the interim report of the Ledain Commission on the non-medical use of drugs. The drug, now under the Nar- cotic Control Act, is not a nar- cotic, he said, and "this situa- tion should be corrected." The penalties for trafficking under the food and drug act are less severe and it contains no provisions against importing and exporting of drugs, he said. Later, when asked by anoth- er panel member about changing laws, Mr. Taylor said laws should reflect the major- ity of the people's thinking and should be changed only when the thinldng changes. He said as youth minister he had not recommended findings of the Ledain Commission to the provincial government be- cause he did not know if most youths supported the findings. Besides, "I must reflect the thinking of my Drumheller con- stituency." DOCTOR NAMED WINNIPEG (CP) A Win- nipeg physician, Dr. Charles A.
