STARTING FARMERS FACE TOUGH TASK WINNIPEG (CP) -Getting started in full-time farming is difficult now and it's going to get even more difficult, a University of British Colum- bia professor told the Cana- dian Bankers Association conference. Prof. G. R. Winter said a study shows capital re- quirements for the average farm in Canada climbed from in 1961 to in 1966, and now has reached the level. Debt, as a proportion of total farm assets, rose from 9.5 per cent in 1960 to 20.8 per cent a decade later. The number of farms in Canada has been dropping at the rate of about two per cent a year since 1941. Prof. Winter, head of the un- iversity's department of agricultural economics, said the trend to fewer farmers has gone too far and is one reason why there is a shortage of beef and a huge grain sur- plus. He predicted an increasing proportion of part-time farmers, some of whom would be attracted by high com- modity prices while others are more interested in the farm environment and an alternate life-style. George Owen, chairman of the Federal Farm Credit Corp., said not everyone who wants to enter full-time farm- ing has the capacity or ex- perience needed to make a success of it. Mr. Owen, who noted some evidence of a back-to-the-land movement in Canada, said, "desire alone is not sufficient to enter any business or profession." There was no evidence to support the contention that many credit-worthy people seeking to enter farming were being turned away by lending services. Feelings of agricultural fundamentalism only clouded the issue. Alberta man killed in B.C. McBRIDE, B.C. (CP) Thomas Woodcock, 68, of Wainwright, Alta., and his passenger Oscar Clark, 65, of Burns Lake, B.C., were killed in a single-car accident, 38 miles west of this Cariboo dis- trict community. Police said the two men were killed when their vehicle missed a curve and rolled into a ditch. meeting set EDMONTON (CP) The Yeliowhead Interprovincial Highway Association will hold its fifth annual convention in Winnipeg Dec. 7 and 8, a spokesman for the association said today. Executive director Ted Sample said Winnipeg was selected because of its impor- tance as a key marketing point for the route. The Yeliowhead highway runs through the four western provinces, from Portage La Prairie. Man., west to Kamloops and Prince Rupert, B.C via Saskatoon, Ed- monton and Jasper, Alta. By STEPHEN SCOTT OTTAWA (CP) A New Democratic MP called Tues- day for dismissal of the com- missioner of the Canadian Penitentiary Service, Paul Faguy, while a Conservative demanded a complete "shake- up at the top" of the service. Frank Howard Skeena) said Mr. Faguy knows nothing about running a penitentiary and should be fired. John Reynolds naby-Kichmond-Delta) called for the shake-up and added that Solicitor-General Warren Allmand should be fired if he shows he cannot rectify problems that are the fault of the prison service. Both men made their state- ments in interviews after a heated Commons exchange with Mr. Allmand about British Columbia penientiary in New Westminster, scene of continued disturbances and tension recently. In the Commons Mr. Howard demanded an inquiry into the penitentiary service headquarters here. Mr. Reynolds and Erik Nielsen the Conservative justice critic, demanded an independent inquiry into the B.C. prison. Mr. Nielsen warned that ac- tion must be taken before something really serious happens ALLMAND DENIES Mr. Allmand denied allega- tions from opposition members and announced that another 43 prisoners, including eight of the most dif- ficult, have been transferred from the penitentiary since the weekend. That was in addition to 60 transferred from the max- imum security institution after a recent not. Mr. Allmand said four of the eight most difficult prisoners were sent to the Ontario region, two French-speaking ones went to the Laval tem- porary maximum-security prison in Montreal and two went to Dorchester, N.B. Mr. Reynolds said in the in- terview that he can prove that Mr. Allmand gave mis- information to a written ques- tion Mr. Reynolds placed in the Commons. He said the minister is being conned by the penitentiary service. _ ____ He said he has great respect for Mr. Allmand as a sincere and hardworking solicitor-ge- neral, but if he cannot rectify a situation under which he was given false information he will have to go. OTHERS NOTED Mr. Howard told a reporter that he is referring to troubles in more than one prison when he demands the dismissal of Mr. Faguy. He said the penitentiary service under Mr. Faguy is making difficult the job of prison directors. The service was not giving firm direction and the direc- tives it did give often showed it had no firm policy line. With the service acceding to prisoner demands, prisoners are demanding more and more, he added. What they needed was firm discipline and a clear policy from above. Mr. Nielsen said outside the Commons he has not assessed Mr. Faguy's performance and it would not be fair to make a judgment on Mr. Howard's demand. He said if Mr. Faguy is recommending an indepen- dent inquiry at the B.C. prison it would be unfair to call for his dismissal. SETS RECORD THUNDER BAY, Ont. (CP) The J. W. McGriffin, a Can- ada Steamship Lines freighter, left Thunder Bay harbor recently with a record load of grain. The load of bushels beat the previous Canadian record set by the Canadian Progress of bushels in December, 1971.
