Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 9, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta llapeseed crop harvest may reach record JIM NEAVES Canadian Press SMI Writer Prairie farmers arc expected In harvest a record 100.6 million bushels of rapeseed this year despite an onslaught (if crop-destroying insects. 'Hip crop a whopping increase from last year's 72.2 million bnslicls is not. expected to pose any dis- posal problem for Uic growers looking for a reliable cash income. The production forecast is down from, the 104.6 iral- lion bushels estimated in September, mainly due to damage caused by an of Bertha Army worms. 'Hie bugs were fought successfully with the aid of prairie governments which provided supplies of the chemical lannate to replace the previously used but since-banned DDT. Confident of sales The Rapeseed Association of Canaui i resumed during the long weekend and as of Friday the two sides said they could not agree on the major issue in the dispute. Don Corse, Alberta Teachers' Association welfare officer and chief bargaining agent for UK teachers, said the major issue v, as consultation on board pol- icy changes. R. A. Bailey of Devon, Alta., chairman of the North Central West School Authorities Asso- bargaining agent for tlie boards, said th major jssuo was regional harga .''.ig. He said the teacher's associa- tion was attempting, through strike action, to break down tire concept of regional bargaining, a right granted to Alberta boards for the first time in !970. Mr. Bailey said tlie teachers have had their province-wide association backing them for years but when the school boards decide to group together leader Britain shows no concern over diplomats expulsion HULL, Que. (CP) The lead- ership convention machinery of the Social Credit party grinds into action today seeking a new federal thrust for its newly-reu- nited organization.

About delegates are expected to attend, mostly from Quebec. Convention highlights will be televised by the CBC. party members sitting atop the boardcd-over ice of Hull Arena will grapple with a variety of resolutions already discussed at a national council meeting in Ottawa last April and in provincial conventions in Ontario, Alberta, British Colum- bia and Quebec. Paul Hellyer, the former Lib- eral cabinet minister who quit his party to form the Action Canada political movement, is addressing the convention by in- vitation today. Dr. McGillivray, a Social Credit vice-president, repre- sented the party at Action Can- ada's first convention in Toronto last weekend. OUTLOOK SHIFTS One of the major resolutions being debated today reflects the shift in power from Social Credit's western Canadian origins in Alberta lo Quebec. The resolution calls for parallel French and English working units in the federal public serv- ice. Tlie Social Credit party has been induced to 13 members in the Commons, all from Quebec and elected in 1368 as dissident Creditistes led by Mr. Caouette. The party's best showing was In 1962 when 30 MPs were elected, 26 of them from Quebec in a de- velopment that shook both the Liberal and Conservative par- tics. Tlie election followed the Social Credit leadership convention which chose Robert of Tied Deer. Alta., .is leader and Mr. Caouetfe as deputy loader. Friction hot wee 'Mr. Thomp- son and Mr. Caouette led to a split hflc-r the election. The party divided about evenly with Mr. Thompson and Mr. Caouette leading the two splin- ter groups. The Thompson group grad- u ally disappeared and Mr. Thompson himself joined the Conservatives. Mr- Caouelte's party survived as a regional group entirely from Quebec. By KEVIN' DOYLE LONDON (CP) The Krem- lin's decision to expel Brit- ish diplomats and one business- man hi retaliation for the recent mass expulsion of Russian offi- cials from England has pro- duced only ho-hum reactions in tlie foreign office here. The Soviet move, announced Rebel Argentine forces surrender BUENOS AIRES (AP) Rebel Argentine forces trying to overthrow President Alejandro Lanusse surrendered today to an overwhelming force of loyal- ist troops. Not a shot was fired, an announcement said. The government described the 1.200 or so rebel troops as right- ists seeking to install a totalitar- ian government. The rebels de- scribed themselves as national- ists. Lanusse, an army general, has promised Argentines elec- in first since the military seized power in with participation of followers of Juan D. Peron, exiled Argen- tine strongman. The announcement of the rebel surrender at Azul, a city on the Pampas 150 miles south of here, said the rebel leader, Col. Alejandro Garcia, gave up shortly after a loyalist column bad arrived with Gen. Joaquin Aguilar Pinedo at its head. The rebels apparently had hoped their isolated rebellion would spread throughout the country. But Lanusse vowed lo crush the rebels with whatever force that was necessary. He dispatched loyalist troops to Azul overnight. Lt.-Col. Fernando A m a d e o Ealdrich, another rebel leader, also surrendered, returning to Azul with a column of armored cars which had set out at dawn with the announced purpose of fighting approaching govern- ment troops. A heavy rain in Azu! left dirt country roads almost impassa- ble. Radio Azul, which the rebels had seized at the start of their uprising Friday afternoon, was returned to its owner. The reb- el- had broadcast communiques demanding Lanusse's ouster "because the people have lost confidence and faith in him." ''Any luck, Friday, had been expected by the British government. The only question was how many British officials would be forced to leave Russia and how soon. One leading foreign office spokesman said tlie only sur- prising aspect of the Russian re- action was the decision to car.- cei a visit which British Foreign Minister Sir Alec Douglas-Home hoped to make to Russia next year. British sources say three Brit- ish businessmen who hold ulid S'oviet visas also will not be al- lowed to enter Russia in future. An additional 10 Britons, not in the Sonet union at presciu, have been declared persona lion grata and will be denied re-en- try. The Soviet action followed by two weeks Britain's expulsion of 90 Russian officials and Lon- don's decision to refuse re-entry U> 15 others. All those expelled now have left London. HANDED NOTE A note handed to Britain's newly-appointed ambassador in Moscow, Sir John Killick, by the Soviet foreign office said the Kremlin was forced to retaliate to "intensification of the atmos- phere of spy mania and hostility to tho Soviet Union." Britain alleges that all Sonet officials expelled from here have been engaged in spy activ- ity. Same observers said British officials are likely to be relieved that Russia did not take even more drastic retaliatory' action. British intelligence forces are reported to be continuing their search for other Soviet agents engaged in espionage here. The Kremlin declared Friday that future relations between Moscow and London "solely de- pends on the British." B.C. Couple die in car mishap WHITE RIVER, Ont.

But their cry won't work be- cause tlie solidarity of the boards now is stronger Uiaii ever, he said. Lawrence Truckey, chairman of the strike committee and a member of the teacher negotiat- ing team, said the strike would continue until a settlement is reached. The negotiating repre- sentatives Q[ each side have the right to sign contract and teach- ers could be back on the job within one day of a settlement being negotiated. Tlie teachers want a consulta- tion clause in a new contract which would require each school board to notify the teachers of any policy changes affecting working conditions. REJECT CONCEPT Tlie school boards reject the concept, saying it will lead to a direct takeover of education by teachers. Mr. Truckey said Uie trustees want a management rights clause to give them power to dictate working conditions and create a "master-servant rela- tionship with the teachers." 1 'ul the teachers maintain ed- ucation is tcu important to be left entirely in the hands of school boards and emphasize the need for teacher involve- ment hi the decision making. Walter Hughes of Edmonton, ATA president, said earlier many teachers involved in re- gional baTgainins have been without a contract for more than a year. More thun 50 per cent of the province's teachers have consultation clauses in their 1971 contracts and the re- mainder want the same, he said. EXPECT RESIST And in Battle River, the re- sults of a strike vote by about teachers in the central Al- berta zone are expected early next week. Another stu- dents would be affected by a strike in that area. A strike in two southern arc-as, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat, could affect an additional students. Teachers in those two areas, bargaining jointly, have re- jected a conciliatibn award of a wage increase over 2" months effective last Septem- ber. Trustees said they had ac- cepted the award and included a consultation clause, a clause which teachers said would con- tinue the same as it had in the past.
