Good yields reported in Manitoba and Saskatchewan Grain crop situation varies in Alberta OTTAWA (CP) Another two or three weeks of favorable weather and the 1971 grain crops on the Prairies will be completely harvested, Statistics Canada reported Wednesday in the last of its telegraphic re- ports this year on Canadian crop conditions. Good yields are reported to be general in Manitoba and throughout most of Saskatche- wan. The situation varies in Al- berta. Harvesting is generally well advanced in Manitoba, south- western Saskatchewan and southern Alberta. Swathing and combining are underway else- where in the three provinces. The .-eport said heavy winds in southern Saskatchewan last Saturday shelled standing grain and also scattered swaths. In northern Saskatchewan the extent of losses in rapeseed due to the army worm infestation now is becoming evident. The crop picture in the other provinces: MAIUTIMES: Weather conditions are satis- factory for harvesting all crops in Pnnce Edward Island. Some 50 per cent of the grain crop is harvested with good yield. To- bacco picking is about 65 per Securities agencies lack funds VANCOUVER (CP) A se- curities and exchange commis- sion official says government agencies charged with policing the securities industry must have adequate staff and funds to do a proper job. James Needham of Washing- ton said in an interview here that although the securities in- dustry in the United States works largely through self-reg- ulation, there is always the need for a government agency to make sure the rules are ad- hered to. Mr. Needham, one of five SEC commissioners charged with policing U.S. broker age firms and stock exchanges, was here to address an Investment Bankers Association conven- tion. Alan G. Thompson, president of the Investment Dealers As- sociation of Canada, said the Canadian securities industry "is doing a wonderful job of self regulation" and is not in need of more government reg- ulations to ensure protection of the public's interest. Mr. Thompson, a partner with Richardson Securities of Can- ada in Winnipeg, said he agreed with the principle of disclosure. "The mope disclosure there is the better it he said. "By more disclosure the peo- ple will understand the free en- terprise system better and will perhaps move in an opposite di- rection to where we seem to be heading now, which is towards socialism-" Air Canada pilots get new pact MONTREAL (CP) Air Can- ada and ils pilots have agreed on z new contract to re- place the current pact that ex- >ircs Oct. 31. "We are very pleased that the airline and the Canadian Air jine Pilots Association were able to come to agreement on this contract quickly and President John Bald- win of Air Canada said in a itatement Tuesday. He said union members com- ileted ratification of the con- ract "within the last few lays." But neilher Air Canada nor ;ALPA would disclose terms of he new package. Mr. Baldwin aid details will be made public in the near future" when the ormal signing takes place. cent completed. Potato harvest- ing has yet to begin but a good yield is anticipated. In Nova Scotia excessive rain in August has caused consider- able damage especially in the Annapolis Valley. Harvesting in cereals is about 50 per cent ''omplcttd in some areas. Below average crops are reported for the blueberry harvest in most dislricts. In New Brunswick picking of melba and Joyce apples will be finished this week. While color- ing is Rood the apples are nol sizing properly some growers say. Potatoes, tomatoes, cab- bage, squash, corn and cucum- bers are in abundant supply. Yields of all vegetables arc above average. QUEBEC: Three weeks of heavy rain in almost all parts of Quebec made hay curing difficult al- though fanners have most of the crops in. Yields varied from poor to good and in some areas a second cut is being harvested. Grain growers are malting good progress with harvesting in the Montreal district and also in the south and southwest 01 the prov- ince. Rain had delayed progress elsewhere. ONTARIO: Recent rains have improved the fall pasture outlook but rain- fall is still badly needed in most southern Ontario counties. The rains have enabled many farm- ers to cultivate for winter wheat and planting is well under way. Harvesting in grain corn is ex- pected to si art in the last week of this month. At least BO per cent of Hie total t o h a c c o acreage has been harvested and yields and quality were good. Tobacco losses due to hail and wind damage Aug. 23 may reach 2 million pounds. BRITISH COLUMBIA: The province has experienced cooler weather in the last month with some rain. Hail and wind damage is reported in the Okan- agan Valley. Lower mainland blueberry growers are having difficulties in harvesting due to the unu- sually late season. The harvest is at bast three weeks later than last year and some con- cern is felt about the possibility of some of the crop not ripening in (irne. Vegetable harvesting is normal and the lettuce crops, damaged earlier in the hot weather, are again in good con- dition. Table corn is available in large quantity and onions and carrots as well as cool season harvested vegetables.
