West retreats from hardline r-y JIM NEAVES Canadian Press Staff Writer Praine governments and farm organizations appear to be retreating from their hardline approach to the proposed grains stabilization bill which the federal gov- ernment says could be killed by opposition delaying tactics. Otto Lang, minister in charge of the Canadian wheat board, has said the government will withdraw tire bill fronT Parliament if the Progressive Conserva- tives and New Democrats don't end the delays soon. This, he says, would mean western grain growrers would be paid million under the Temporary Wheat Re- serves Act, about million less than under the new stabilization scheme. The government wants the stabilization plan to re- the reserves ad. Opponents of the legislation have suggested Ottawa still make a payment to farmers and provide more funds under the slabilizalion program. The federal government has rejected thds. insisting that abandonment of the wheat reserves act be part of the stabilization bill and any payments due under that old act be included in the ?100 million. Want the cash Faced with the choice, many farm groups now arc urging reluctant support of the legislation. They want the cash, but have reservations about the long-term effects of Ilic bill. Prnirie irjnistcrs have urged passage of the bill, but want only Uvo of its sections proclaimed law immediately while the rest of the legislation is re- viewed. The two sections call for the million pay- ment to growers arxl of the reserves act. The complex proposal, before Parliament for al- most one year, is designed to stabilize western grain income based on average sales during the previous five years. Both growers and Ottawa would pay into Uie fund. The federal government lias said the plan will en- sure that, farmers receive money to live even during poor crop years. The .Saskatchewan Rapcsecd Growers' association Wednesday was the latest to announce support of (lie stabilization plan. Ken Naber of Melforl, association president, said the association fell, the bill should be given a chance to prove its worth and, at the same time, release the flOO million. Bui. in Saskatoon, (he president of the militant Na- tional Farmers Union, Hoy Atkinson, called on Mr. King, Prime Minister Trudeau and E. K. Turner, Sas- katchewan Pool president, to ir.eet 800 wheat ixwl and NKU members in Saskatoon discuss the proposed legislation. Mr. Atkinson said tin; request for the mod ing, sent to Mr. Lantf in a telegram, was in response to incnl.s by the priino minister and Mr. Lang that fann- ers were nut Hear about the implications of the bill. Mr. Atkinson said Mr TunuT has agreed to attend. Oobscn U'a of Kdmonlon. president of AlbcrUi's Unifann, .said Wednesday early passage of the sta- bilization bill is necessary.

Chretien uses 'forked tongue' EDMONTON CP) Indian affairs Minister Jean Chrelien should "stop his unethical and cheap political manoeuvres" and improve living conditions and education on Alberta re- serves, Harold Cardinal, presi- dent of the Alberta Indian As- sociation, said loelay. Mr. Cardinal told a news con- ference Mr. Chretien speaks with a "forked tongue" and his approach to the educational well-being of Indians is "at best and at worst "a cheap political stunt." "It is unfortunate that the minister has decided to employ a forked tongue in attempting to cover up his totally inade- quate reaction to the plight of the indian people in northeast- ern Alberta." He was replying to charges by Mr. Chretien Wednesday that Indians on two reserves in the St. Paul area are practis- ing "political blackmail" by keeping their children out of school until living conditions and educational facilities are improved. BRANDED CHEAP Proposals by the minister were described by Mr. Cardi- nal as "hypocritical" and "cheap" because he has failed to provide any additional money to carry them out. "His proposals as affecting Cold Lake and Kehewin only scratch at the surface and are discriminatory in application as they ignore and neglect the other five reserves in the area that have the same acute prob- lems." He said MJ. Chretien pro- poses to take money Budgeted for other reserves to implement the proposals made Wednes- day. "This is unjust, punitive and discriminatory against re- serves such as Fox Lake, Sun- child-O'Chiese, Brocket and others who must also deal with pressing problems with very limited resources. "The Indian peopl" did not go on strike to penalize their "brothers in other parts of the province." CALLS IT 'BLACKMAIL' Meanwhile, Mr. Chrelien told the Commons that keeping In- dian children out of school amounts to blackmail and is un- acceptable to the government, which was doing its best to solve the problems. Replying to Frank Howard Mr. Chretien said he would be willing to meet with Ontario Indian representa- tives if they came to Ottawa. Mr. Howard had said some Ontario Indians were consider- ing action similar to that being taken in Alberta. Mr. Howard said he rejects the minister's statement that the reserves don't have an ade- quate economic base to justify large new schools.

The last increase was in 1967. The proposed increases were filed May 17 and were io take effect June 28.

The dispute became heated when former Attorney-General Edgar Gerhart told the guards in August that any prison em- ployees participating :n a strike would be fired and evicted from government subsidised homes.
