(CP) leven major Canadian and United States, farm organiza- ions issued a joint statement charging that farmers are not jenefiting "fully and fairly" 'rom the present record world grain sales, The statement followed two days of meetings called to dis- cuss the international grain outlook and agricultural prob- lems common to both coun- tries. World wheat prices have been low since 1967 because of lack of effective price provi- sions in the last two interna. tional wheat agreements." This lack of international co- operation is responsible for prices to farmers remaining at low levels despite the present high export demand, the state- ment says. The farm organizations call- ed on their two governments to act immediately to get an agreement of importing and ex- porting countries on wheal prices that would "assure ade- quate returns to producers."

M. Runciman, United Grain Growers president, said here. Mr. Ttunciman, in a letter sent to local hoard direc- tors, saitl there is a "great deal" o fpublic misunderstand- ing about two matters in the dispute.

"It did so only in the case of the longshoremen this mean, the grain handlers' union can go on strike at any time. They could stay on strike unless a proclamation was enacted." Mr. Runciman said the sec- ond misunderstanding was that the terminal operators rejected a conciliation board report be- cause they would not increase wages "a mere five cents." He said the operators offer did include 35 cents an hour across the board in direct wages for each year of the agreement. "Increasing this to 40 cents an hour in each year was un- acceptable in the light of other the UGG president said.
