Ont. (CPi Livestock producers were told by Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan Thursday night that their long-term security depends largely on their own efforts to keep feed grain producers happy "I think that everyone recognizes that farmers need decent price for their products or they will simply quit producing. he told the Huron County Federation of Agriculture. A text of his remarks was released in ad- vance of delivery. "That holds true for the farmer who produces feed grains just as much as it holds true for the dairy farmer, the beef feedlot operator, the pork producer and all other farmers." Mr. Whelan said federal feed grain policy is encourag- ing production of grains, es- pecially in western Canada. lurther million to guarantee bank and credit un- ion loans used for agricultural purposes There is also provision in the bill for outright grants to larmers. in the form of dis- counted interest rates or a percentage of interest paid, to encourage experimentation with new devices or techni- ques of farming, the minister said. Mr. Stupich said B C is at last joining the other nine provinces, which all have similar farm credit programs The province now has the Agriculture Land Development Act. recently revamped, which makes loans up to S15.000 at four per cent for land clearing, drainage, fencing and other im- provements. And the federal government's Farm Credit Corp loans up to at a lime, at almost double the ALDA rate, for purchase of farms but Mr Stupich claim- ed these various plans and private loans have left gaps. The new B.C. scheme will cover all other types of farm development such as: purchase of feeder cattle, renovation of old orchards, assistance to young farmers, diversification from gram to livestock in the Peace River area and development of needed specialty crops. Mr. Stupich said the million fund will carry the scheme through this fiscal year until March 31. 1974 and more money will be allotted to it in the spring budget.

Schlegel "backed me up against the wall and hit me on the back three or four times He said the next morning he pleaded guilty to causing a disturbance in the jail warden's court and his privileges of using the gym- nasium and reading material were suspended for 30 days However. Sims told the in- quiry, in its third day of public- hearings, that he did not charge Schlegel with beating him in the warden's court that day because "Schlegel was there He said he laid the charge against Schlegel two weeks later after he con- sulted with a John Howard Society worker.
