(CP) Alber la's nigged, individualistic cat tlemen are concerned about in creasing government interfer encein their agricultura sphere, particularly proposed federal marketing legislator I and the report on agriculture ir 1 the 1970s. George Hoss of Manyberries 40 miles south of Medicine Hat who runs cattle on the largest ranch in Al said most of the concern s involves government interfer ence in beef iuarfceting. "Every time the government 1 monkeys around with private business it gets both itself am 1 the business into trouble." The concern involves Bill C-5 197, which would establish a na tional farm, products marketing council and provide for estab lishment of national marketing agencies. Also bothering the E cattlemen is the recommenda tion of the federal agriculture report which says producers should accept a target of feeder cattle for export by 1980 Chris Mills, Western Stock Growers' Association secretary at Calgary, says the association prefers that the governmem stay out of such predictions. Mr. Mills said the major problem is that the report on the future of agriculture, as far as cattle are concerned, does nol consider the world situation. England was encouraging farmers to get into beef production and the same efforts were being made in Australia and New Zealand. "By 1975 there is every likelihood we could run ourselves into the same surplus Likeli jrplus in the cattle industry as we are experiencing with grain." Established cattlemen believe "only so many people can make a profit although we are nol saying new people should not get into the business." With the advent of the grain surplus during the last 18 months the cattle populations have increased. "The cow numbers are up in both Alberta and Cattle but we have no firm fgures until January because the Dominion Bureau. of Statistics always is six months behind." Mr. Ross said cattle producers want to lake their chances on marketing and Mr. Mills agreed, saying there is no need for legislation to establish marketing board. Fred Newcombe of Calgary, Canadian Cattlemen's Association secretary said the legislation will give the federal government control of marketing without the producers having any regress. He said the association plans to meet tte Commons' standing committee on agriculture to discuss the legislation. "Although you won't see cattlemen on parade, there is going to be organized resistance to this he said. In Medicine to for an-3a-ne, for :es ce, re-of ng rill an Mr, Gilmour questioned W. c Allan Beckett, an economist ap-y pcaring as Bell's first witness, at a transport commission hearing on a company application to increase rates for general telephone service. Also presen were lawyers representing other opponents of the rate increase. Mr. Beckett agreed with Mr Gilmour's statement that any increase would hit poor sub scribers worse than those with more money. Then the service is being denied to "old-age pensioners am others who need it Mr Gilmour said. APPLIED IN 1965 Bell last applied for a rate increase in 1968. In September 1869, the transport commission granted the company increases in long-distance and special service charges while rejecting the company's bid to raise its general service rates. The authorized increases gave the company some million in additional annual revenues. Last June the Montreal-based communications company again applied for the general service increase "to help offset rising costs and prevent deterioration in service." The application calls for a 6.25 'per cent increase in basic monthly service charges to produce an additional million in annual Teh OTTAWA (CP) Bell Canada is "developing a habit" ol appearing before the Canadian ransport commission to ask for rate increases, Uarlyle Gilmour, self-appointed watchdog over he" telephone company's opera-ions, said Ht The stocky, big-voiced critic in his words a "Q u e b e said the compan comes before the board wit "tear-stained eyes" asking fo more money while it inves large sums in various other en Research Council i awarded scholarships 304 post-graduate students the 1970-71 year, it was nounccd Wednesday.
