Before returning to Ottaw: Tuesday after a 10-day tour o Alberta, Mr. Stanfield also wil visit another ranch and a grain farm at Arrowwood. He described the tour, part of which was a vacation, a part of his continuing educj tion in agriculture.-- Mr. Stanfield, former N o v Scotia premier, appeared re laxed and was quick with the smile and quip as he met sev eral area farmers during the afternoon. It was in contrast with tin previous week marked by the controversy over Mr. Stan field's leadership of the party which was prompted by re- ports coming from a closet live MPs and top party sup- porters at Saskatoon last week end. Reports indicated Mr. Stan field's leadership was question ed; these were denied by most prominent western MPs who were at the meeting. During the morning Friday Mr. Stanfield showed consider- able interest in the herd owned by Mr. Berg, Battle River Con- servative A s s o c i a tion presi- dent. Mr. Berg told Mr. Stanfield he was convinced agriculture could survive only under the system of family farms anc :hat the federal government's lift program to reduce wheat acreage would result in a 000 drop in income for him this year. Later, Mr. Stanfield said it was difficult to implement a jeneral government program hat would assist all segments of agriculture. About 300 people attended an evening barbeque on the farm and Mr. and Mrs. Stanfield mingled with the crowd. The Conservative leader to- day is scheduled to visit Viking.

The nnounccmenl did not say when would fly ta Washington, ,._ A. Lome Campbell, Winnipeg corporation lawyer, told a news conference that some of Hie poorer provinces "cannot even afford a meaningful program." He said some way must be found to make legal services available across the country on an equitable basis. A resolution adopted1 Friday during closing sessions of the association's annual convention called on Ottawa to make funds available for such a program. Justice Minister John Turner, who attended earlier in the week, indicated his support for federal action. Mr. Campbell said most law- yers would like to avoid a scheme similar to medical-care insurance with prepaid contri- butions, although the alternative might involve some form of means test to determine a cli- ent's ability' to pay. The new president agreed that he was an activist among law- yers and plans to push for heav- ier commitment from the legal profession to social problems. "I want to sec changes, I want to promote the younger group in the profession and to see us more involved in public issues." Resolutions adopted during the final day included one urg- ing a substantial increase in the maximum prison term fop jury- tampering and corrupting wit- nesses. The resolution put forward by G. D. Kenney, deputy attorney- general (f British Columbia, recommended that the penalty under the Criminal Code for such offices be boosted to 10 years from the present two. Supporters of the resolution said that in several cases, courts dealing with attempts to influence jury members, to cor- rupt witnesses or to plant evi- dence have expressed regret that they could not impose sent- ences greater than two years. A resolution advocated by Professor Arnold B. Bass of Winnipeg called for uniform leg- islation throughout Canada to deal with jet-age "kidnapping" of children affected by custody orders in divorce ani separation cases. The resolution met. not only with approval but also with ap- plause. Prof. Bass said there now are the summer. "horrendous consequences" wlwn children are spirited away from one jurisdiction to another by disgruntled parties in a cus- tody action. The. children be- come the innocent pawns in a frequently complex, prolonged and costly procedure to return them to the original jurisdiction. He said ease of travel in the modern age had made the prob- lem more acute.
