"We must change the em phasis from rice to Other agri cultural products which have a large yield because of the shortage of farm land. "No definite trend has been developed yet but I hope to see the large scale agriculture methods in Canada to attrac experience for Japan." Mr. SMmamoto said Japan is a big importer of meat, espe- cially from New Zealand, Aus trialia and Canada. He sail Japan will raise more of its own meat in future years.

He said Hokkaido business in 1970 included imports of and exports of 000; mostly in farm, forest, marine, mineral and manufac- tured products. The greatest area of import for Hokkaido is iron ore, coking coal, logs, wheat, and scrap iron. The greatest exports are plywood, ships, iron coils and urea. He said the greatest problem for Japan today is the double structure of the economy. "We have the large industry on one hand and the small farms and small industry on the other. This means fighting economies of scale all the time.

Presbyterian Moderator Here Church Seeks Better Life For Canadians By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer The Presbyterian Church anada has three main alms i fighting for in the search fo >etter conditions for all Cana ans, said Dr. DUlwyn T DR. DILLWYN EVANS LESCENT SU WHAT IS IN A NAME? Whenever you consider buying a product and it has a name that you recognize, or is made by a company you ore familiar with, it will always give you a certain confidence that what you are getting is of good quality. It is the same when you select a pharmacy to get your medicines and health needs from, or a family physician. Your doctor and pharmacist feel the same way about companies, who make pharmaceutical products. Although some drugs may be made by many firms, your physician usuaally specifies the exact brand name he feels will be the safest for you. Because we stock only medicines made by reputable firms, we too feel confident that we are always dispensing drugs that are de- pendnhle.___________________________________ JUST ARRIVED LOVE'S SOFT EYES Fantastic Ultra Feminine Wow!

He told The Herald in an in- terview "The 96th General As- sembly is committed to a real- istic approach to poverty in Canada. Through the Canadian Council of Churches, we are adding our voice to make the nation aware of unnecessary poverty in Canada. "We also are making strong emphasis on home and family life, which we feel is the base for a strong nation. "The. third point is support oi the Vanier Institute on family life." On the question of church relevance, Dr. Evans said it is 17 Carloads For Fair Henry Ruste, Alberta's min- ister of agriculture, has an- nounced that 17 carloads of livestock have been selected to represent the province in com- petitions at the 1970 Royal Win- ter Fair to he held at Toronto, Albertans contrib- uting to the fair will be Frank Slezina of Coaldale, who will send 14 Aberdeen Angus cattle, and Paul Maier of Lomond, who will send four Shorthorn cattle. Don Maier of Lomond will send one Hereford. The 17 carloads of animals will consist of six carloads of registered beef cattle, two car- loads of Charolais steers, one carload each of Hereford, Shorthorn, Angus jred steers, one and cross- carload of dairy cattle, one carload of reg- stered swine one car of mar- cet hogs, a car of heavy horses and a car of sheep. true the numerical statistics are down but this is not neces- sarily bad. "I would rather have completely committed people than uncommitted peo- ple who are just going along for the ride." He said it is interesting to note that although church at- tendance is down, givings are up and this is strictly a matter of commitment. "The people who are living a committed life are seeing the church as it really healer and redeemer in so- ciety." He said if it were not for .the Christian church there would be no education, medical ser- vice or social service. "You get off the continents of North America and Europe and where you see hospitals, agri- cultural advances and self-help programs, you will find the he said. "It is an illustration of the church proclamation if one loves God he can't help bu help his fellow man." He said the church toda; can't put.on an act. "The pres ent generation can spot phoni ness a mile away. The church must act like the youth of to- day keep looking for the rea thing." Nigeria Making Comeback Nigeria has embarked on major program of reconcilia tion, reconstruction and reha bilitation following the settle- ment of the three-year civ: war which raged between Ni gerian and1 the break-awaj state of Biafra. In an interview with The Herald today, Dr. Dillwyn T Evans, moderator of the 96tli General Assembly of tfe Pres byterian Church of Canada said: "During my visit thi month, I could feel the govern ment of Nigeria theme, one na tion and one destiny. They an applying this theme to the re- building 3 Rs. program tabbed1 the "Reeonciliation, reconstruc tion and rehabilitation is now going on and the military gov srnment in Nigeria has set the target date of 1976 as the time when the reins of governmeni will be turned over to the civil- ians. Dr. Evans, who spoke at St. Andrew's Reformation Sunday service, outlined some of the points in the 3R program. "The. return to civilian gov- ernment in 1976 is all impor- tant but even more so, on Oct.

"The government also pro- claimed it will eradicate all corruption from the national life of Nigeria." The greatest need in Nigeria today is food and money. "Allan McGill, high commissioner to Nigeria, was given million for the balance of the fiscal year by Canada. This is only a drop in the bucket on the road to completion of the 3R pro- Dr. Evans said. "The church, speaking of all denominations, is a minority in Nigeria but the influence of the church, especially in the 3R program, is far out of propor- tion with the federal govern- ment. "It is not what the church has said but what it is doing that makes the influence felt." As moderator of the Presby- lerian Church, Dr. Evans was invited to Nigeria's celebration of its 10th anniversary of inde- pendence. He was the only clergy representative from a country inside or outside of Africa to be invited a move which shows the high esteem in which Canadians are held by the Nigerians. "Despite propaganda around Canada that says Nigeria doesn't want white help, most Canadians realize the opposite is true." He said Dr. 0. Arikpo, minis- ter of foreign affairs in the Ni- gerian cabinet, publicly thank- ed Canada for the enlightened stand taken during the civil war, claiming Canada as one of the few nations which took a neutral stand in the domestic struggle. Dr. Evans said during his visit, a significant phenomenon was the fact that all Canadian money sent to Nigeria was spent equally between Nigeria and Biafra and because of this Canada is still in a position to help in the rebuilding program.

The lone gunman, brandish- ing a sawed off shotgun and wearing a stocking.mask, walk- ed into the bank about p.m. and ordered the em- ployees and three customers to lie down on the floor while he gave the teller a paper bag for the money. The police have not yet locat- ed a 1960 red or wine Buick, which was reported to have been driving at a high rate of speed on the northern outskirts of Warner, just before 6 p.m. Friday. Roadblocks were set up throughout southern Alberta immediately after the holdup but have been discontinued. RCMP is still concentrating its search in southern Alberta in hopes that the Buick will show up and possibly give some clues as to the identity of the man who robbed the bank. Police are looking for a man described as fairly thin, about 30, five feet eight inches tall and about 140 pounds. He was wearing a red hunter's hat, a long trench coat and tan cow- boy boots. Intersections Tour Relates To Bylaw A new bylaw to ensure visi- bility at city intersections is expected to come before coun- cil soon following a tour Satur- day by aldermen to assess the situation.. The bylaw has been held up since July, when Alderman Rex Littl volur'.ered to take mem- bers of council on a tour of the city to show them just how bad the situation is. Aid. Little said after the tour most of ths real trouble spots were in areas, such a Lake- view, where the streets did not follow the grid system. It is often difficult, he said, to tell exactly where the inter- section was in these areas, par- ticularly if the driver was not familiar with the city. Mayor Andy Anderson and Aldermen Vera Fer g u s o n, C. W. Chichester and Rex Little made the tour Saturday. A report from the engineer- ing director submitted to city council Sept. 21 recommends that the 25 feet set back pro- vided for in the proposed by- law be adhered to. The report says the numerous objections to the bylaw may stem.from the fact that people do not understand that the set back is measured from along the roadway, rather than the property line. If passed, the bylaw would make illegal any trees, shrubs, hedges or other obstructions on corner lots within 25 feet of the intersection. Workers' Housing Projects To Be Aided By Grants Application forms for federal and provincial grants are being distributed by the Federal Provincial Agricultural Man- power office in Lethbridge to sugar beet growers, vegetable and potato growers who wish o improve or build additional rousing facilities for seasonal vorkers. This is the first time this type if grant has been made avail- ible to individual growers. In last years only growers func- ioning on a co operative lasis could obtain money for K-tmunal housing. The new policy is in line with the gener- al trend to improve housing tandards in Canada. Al Bothamley, field officer for the_ agricultural manpower office in Lethbridge, says the assistance is being provided for seasonal workers housing be- cause of the relatively high cost of building and operating these units when they are used for only three to six weeks a year. The grants are only being implemented in southern Al- berta. The federal and provincial governments will each pay half of the grant which amounts to 40 per cent of Hie cost of permanent improvements to housing, up to maximum of per seasonal worker or per fanner.
