Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 25, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Oats only exception Thursday, Octobtr THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Deliverable supplies of grain down WINNIPEG (CP) Cana- dian farmers are estimated to have 100 million fewer bushels of wheat available for delivery in the current crop year than they did last year Deliverable supplies of other grains and oilseeds also will be down except for oats, where there is a modest up- swing. The forecast released yes- terday by the Canadian wheat board came a day after Chief Commissioner G N. Vogel told a gathering of world gram officials, in effect, that they should not expect too much of a contribution from Canada this year towards easing the international wheat shortage Wheat board sources are known to be concerned that some customers may be false- ly optimistic about supplies available from this country in the 1973-74 crop year. The latest statistics Canada forecast is for a Canadian wheat crop of 622 million bushels, somewhat higher than trade sources had been estimating in late summer. MUCH UNHARVESTED Mr. Vogel, however, pointed out to a world seminar spon- sored by the Canada grains council that as of last week, more than 100 million bushels still lay in the fields. Harvest conditions, he noted, are becoming more precarious daily and prospects are that late- harvested grain may be tough or damp Moreover, since farmers mav hold back some of 'heir Vaporub tests cause concern BOSTON (AP) Harvard University researchers say that tests done on Vicks Vaporub, a widely used cold medicine, indicate that the petroleum based vaporizer suppresses the natural im- mune defences of mice, mak- ing them more susceptible to bacterial pneumonia Dr Gary Huber. who head- ed the team of researchers, said data taken from mice tests are strong enough to raise a serious question about the medicine's effect on man's immune mechanism Dr. Huber said that "one cannot ever totally ex- trapolate" results on mice directly to man. He said, however, that the particular type of mice used in the Vaporub tests has proved to be a good predicter of an agent's effects on man during 15 years of research with various substances Carl Buffington. public relations director for Richardson Merrell Inc, manufacturers of Vaporub, said in a statement that in 68 years of experience with Vaporub "there has never beeen. an indication that the phenomenon observed in mice by Dr Huber in fact occurs in man MEDICINE 'SAFE' "We believe that Vicks Vaporub is safe and effective when used as directed in providing symptomatic relief to sufferers of the common Buffington said. The company sold million dollars worth of Vaporub throughout the world last year, Buffington said. He said the company would have no further comment until Dr Huber presents his detailed findings to the American College of Chest Physicians meeting in Toronto. Dr Huber said researchers found "a very significant depression in the ability of the lung to kill bacteria" when the mice were exposed to Vaporub This effect oc- curred. Dr Huber said, whether the jelly was rubbed on the mice's chests or in- troduced into their air supply by a steam vaporizer Dr Huber said he didn't know what ingredient or com- bination of ingredients may account for the suppressive effect, and that he will study it further Labor leader says Nixon not stable WASHINGTON (AP) AFLCIO President George Meany says President Nixon appears to suffer from "dangerous emotional in- stability" and repeated that he should resign or be im- peached Meany also called for a new special prosecutor to investigate the Watergate scandal. "The events of the last several days prove the dangerous emotional instabili- ty of the Meany said. "We firmly believe there must be a completely inde- pendent investigation of the scandals in this ad- ministration "Nothing that happened yesterday changes our opinion that the president has so destroyed the people's con- fidence in government that he should resign or be im- peached. "Meanwhile the Congress should move immediately to establish by law an indepen- dent office of special prosecutor completely remov- ed from the president's authority Delegates to the AFL-CIO convention in Miami Beach originally urged Monday that Nixon should quit or be im- peached by Congress "SAVINGS!

Mr Vogel said Canada's wheat exports in the 1973-74 crop year ending next July 31 may be down 100 million bushels from the 553 million bushels exported in 1972-73. The wheat board forecast was based on a survey this month of key country elevator managers at 91 per cent of western delivery points. It takes into account the remnants of last year's crop still held on farms, estimates of this year's production and the amount likely to be retain- ed for livestock feed and seed use next year. ESTIMATE-DELIVERY GAP The board noted that esti- mates of "deliverable" grain traditionally have been above actual farm deliveries. The 1972-73 volume delivered was 17 per cent below deliverable estimates "If the relationship con- tinues in the present crop year, producer deliveries will then be considerably below the estimates shown bv this year's survey of elevator managers For wheat including durum, the board estimates 587 5 mil- lion bushels available for delivery This is down 104.9 million from the 692.4 million bushels shown in a similar survey a year ago and contrasts with actual deliveries in the 1972-73 crop year of 630.4 million bushels. Estimates for other grains compared with last year's Oats 99.5 million bushels, up 12.1 million, barley 2779 million bushels, down 23.8 million, rye 11.1 million bushels, down 1.9 million, flax 20 million bushels, down 3 4 million, rapeseed 49 million bushels, down 17 8 million The survey also showed a "decided drop" in quality of this year's harvest Only 40 3 per cent of wheat is expected to Grade No. 1 Canada western red spring compared with more than 53 per cent in last year's estimate More than 87 per cent of barley is expected to Grade No. 1 feed or lower THREE Three Feathers.
