MOVING OUT Joe Borowski, unlil Wednesday Man- ilobo Highways minisler, clears his office of personal decorations after his resignation was accepted by cabinet. The out-spoken minister resigned after Premier Ed Schreyer made clear he would not tolerate remarks which con- tradict government policy.

Both sifn and Mr. Borowski vacated the office Wednesday after the minisler chose res- ignation over retreating from the untenable position where his latest neck outstretched gambol into the glare of con- troversy left him. Mr. Borowski's bitter anti- abortion campaign of recent weeks culminated with Pre- mier Ed Schreyer's virtual ul- timatum Tuesday that he slop criticizing government policy on the subject or resign. Mr. Borowski said Wednes- day in a letter of resignalion to cabinet he could not "in good conscience" remain. "I simply cannot accept our government's casual stand on inhuman barbarous de- struction of human life through abortion. "I cannot be party to or ac- cept child-destroying legisla- tion in which we are involved." Tlie letter suggested the fed- eral government should pro- vide abortion hospitals, similar to veterans hospitals, to "carry out the intent of their abortion law." Nor should provincial medi- cal care pay for abortions when needs of the elderly are disre- garded, it said.

"Going around wringing our hands is not going to impress the hard-nosed protectionists in the United States." said Max Bailsman And Eldon Woolliams (PC- Calgary North) dismissed the government's legislation, o n which debate continues today at second reading, as a peanut program. The government's legislation, introduced Tuesday when Par- liament resumed after a 68-day vacation, would subsidize Cana- dian industrial plants which have been hit by the surtaxes. Meanwhile, as the opposition tore after the government inside the Commons, Finance Minister E. J. Benson was outside telling reporters he thinks Canada will be exempt from the surcharges in due course. The U.S., he said, has an open mind and is prepared to make moves as the situation changes. Another meeting of officials has been scheduled and he wiJl be meeting personally with John Connally, the U.S. treasury sec- retary. The Americans are consider- ing the Canadian argument in terms of being "a quite differ- ent case" from other countries, and he was confident that seri- ous study is beimg given to the request for exemption. In the debate, Mr. Woolliams said Canada might have re- ceived a kinder response from Washington if the Trudeau gov- ernment had not kicked the U.S. in the shins at eveiy opportu- nity.

Grain d until ne j OTTAWA Western grain farmers will not get any of Hie million in payments under the Prairie Grain Stabilization Act until the act becomes legislation. That's what Manpower and Immigration Minister Otto Lang told the Commons Wednesday in reply to pleas by A. P. Gleave, New Democratic Party MP tor Saskatoon-Big-gar. Mr. Lang, also minister de w act is charge of the Canadian Whca Board, said it was impossible to separate the payments from the rest of the controversia agricultural bill. What's more, Mr. Lang point ed out that part of the reason the payments have not yet been made is because Mr. Gleave has helped hinder passage o the bill by filibustering it when it was before the House.

The minister rejected a sug- gestion that the stabilization bill he split so that the pay- ments portion could be passed earlier than the rest of the bill. He said the bill must be passed in one package. S. J. Korchinski, MP for Mac- kenzie, and Don Mazankowski, MP for Vegrcville, suggested the government was flouting the law by wilhholding payments it had already told farmers it would make under the Tempor- ary Wheat Reserves Act. The act provided for pay- ments of million to be made. The government later upped this to million and included it in the stabilization package. Mr. Lang pointed out that un- til Parliament passes the new legislation he has no authority to make any payments. Sask.
