Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Stpttmbar 7, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 9 Smaller harvest hits farmers, consumers OTTAWA (CP) Statistics Canada has predicted a sharp cut in the 1974 grain harvest, raising prospects of further shortages and higher prices for a vast range of foodstuffs. The statistics bureau reported Friday, on the basis of esti- mates made before a killer frost hit Saskatchewan grain fields, that crop production this year will be substantially lower than last year's and below the average yield during the last decade. The forecast follows similar gloomy predictions about this year's corn crop in the United States and represents yet an- other serious set back in an increasingly food-short world. For farmers, the drop in wheat and feed grain production means they will be unable to cash in on high prices and strong demand for their crops, though they can probably expect even higher prices for the grain they do produce. For consumers, the cut probably will mean higher prices for many food products. While the government subsidizes the cost of wheat used domestically for bread, higher barley and oat prices are passed on through increased meat, poultry and egg costs. The statistics bureau said the 1974 wheat harvest is expected to be about 542.6 million bushels, down from 604.7 million grown last year and 611 million bushels produced on average since 1963. Barley production is expected to slip to 431.1 million bushels from 469.6 million last year, and the oat harvest may be down to 293.7 million bushels from 326.9 million in 1973. The report, however, is based on estimates compiled Aug. 15, more than two weeks before a heavy frost struck grain fields in Saskatchewan, the country's largest grain producing province. Reports indicate that grain yields there may be cut by as much as a third because of the frost. The general drop in production, however, is linked to an un- usually wet spring which forced farmers to cut back on the number of acres they planted and to switch wheatland into faster-maturing crops. As a result, there has been a slight increase in rapeseed and rye production. While the bureau forecast a drop in wheat and feed grain production, it said that rapeseed production may increase to 54.7 million bushels from 53.2 million last year and 37.2 million produced on average during the last 10 years. The rye crop is also expected to be to 18.9 million bushels from 14.3 million in 1973 and 15.6 million grown on aver- age during the last decade.

Justice system questioned Studies done in Canada and elsewhere "seriously question" the gov- ernment's present attempts to rehabilitate offenders, says Roger Tasse, deputy solicitor- general. The criminal justice system "is being questioned as to its success in its objectives, as to the suitability of its structures and as to its capacity to cope with changing concepts and he said. Mr. Tasse was speaking to some 350 persons, including some of the country's top cri- minologists, at the opening of a three-day conference of applied criminology spon- sored by the University of Ot- tawa Part of the criminologist's responsibility, he said, is to allow the inmate of a prison "a sense of personal dignity, to make his life useful to him, to protect his own sense of self-worth." It cost Canadians billion to fight crime in 1972-73, he said. Recent co-operation be- tween federal and provincial law enforcement agencies, he said, has been the greatest single development in dealing with criminals. they're not kidding.
