Summons continue clash sr farm income BY HARRY FAfflBAIUN OTTAWA (CP) A new chapter in the saga of the Prai- rie [arm income stabilization fund opens today as government and opposition resume Iheir drawn-out Commons clash on the proposed fund. 'His government announced Monday it will call for resumed debate today on the bill, which s at the report step before final Commons approval and the time for consideration of proposed amendments. The bill has drawn steadfast opposition from Conservatives and New Democrats and pro- voked a variety of charges, the most recent of which was lhat the government is brazenly ig- noring the law. Among other things, the bill would make a mdlion spe- cial payment immediately to Prairie farmers. The proposed fund would be made up of contributions from farmers per cent of their net revenue up lo a maximum of in government payments o[ double that amount. PROVIDES FOR PAYMENTS When the gross income of all Prairie farmers falls below their average over the previous five years, payouts would b e We took a great idea with a silly name... and gave it a great name.

New Democrats and Conserv- atives have charged that this would stabilize poverty since Prairie farm income levels now are abnormally low and they would serve as the base for judging income in future years. The same government bill would also repeal the Tempo- rary Wheat Reserves Act, under which the government pays the storage cost of stockpiled grain over 178 million bushels. To soften the effect of abolish- ing these payments the govern- ment put in the bill a provision that a transitional payment of flOO million would be made to farmers. All holders ol 1970-71 Canaiiian wheat board permit books would receive to 51.50 a cultivated acre up to a maximum of 64C acres. Peace River coldest spot in Alberta EDMONTON (CP) It got colder in The town of Peace River Tuesday than it ever had before on Sept, 20 Tlie weather office said the temperature in Peace River, 300 miles northeast of Edmon- ton, dropped to 18 above Tues- day 10 degrees lower than previous record minimum of 20 in 1968.

PHONE.327-8578 CAPITOL FURNITURE "The Carpet Housi of South" Repeal of the reserves act and the transitional payment have constiluled the focus of the most serious charges hi previous Commons debate. The opposition first reacted by calling the million a bribe. Then came goverrmenl charges that the opposition was filibustering and keeping the sorely-needed money out of the pockets of Prairie farmers. The opposition began calling on the government to split the bill, so the S100 million could be paid quickly while MPs considered the rest of the legislation. During the campaign for the June Saskatchewan provincial election, government speakers charged that New Democrat MPs were deliberately blocking passage ol the bill to prevent money flowing into Saskatche- wan when Liberal Ross Thatcher, who died in July, was premier. Tlie latest Conservative and New Democrat charges centre on no payments having been made under the reserves act since July, 1970, despite a re- quirement in the act that they be made monthly. Otto Lang, minister responsi- ble for the wheat board, has said paying the million under the stabilization bill would provide a fairer distribu- tion of the money than making Ike million 1970-71 payments as set out in the reserves act. Payments under the reserves act would benefit the larger farms. Prairie farmers problems aired REGINA (CP) The three Prairie ministers of agriciiUure met Monday to discuss prob- lems facing praire farmers. Saskatchewan A g r i c ulture Minister Jack Messer arranged the meeting after the New Dem- ocratic Party won the June 23 Saskatchewan election. It was Uie third meeting be- tween Mr. Messer and Mani- toba Agriculture Minister Sam Uskiw, but their first with Hugh Iforner, Alberta's new Conser- vative agriculture mnister. Following the meeting, Mr. Messer said the federal govern- ment's prcjosed prairie grains stabilization legislation was one of the priority items on the agenda Others included the possbility of the three prov- inces combining efforts in a new farm machinery testing program and problems that may arise if feed grain prices drop drastically this year as a result at above-average produc- tion. FUTURE POLICIES The ministers discussed the possiblity of drafting future policies that would result in a better return for farmers as well as giving the three gov- ernments a muted basis when Mr. Messer said he Old not know how often the meetings between the three provincial ministers would be held, but a number of mcelngs are plan- ned between officials of the "However, I would not think it will be all that long until we meet he said. "Per- haps it will be within the next Mr. Messer said the recently- formed council of deputy agri- culture ministers met last week in Winnpeg to study the pro- posed federal land bank scheme. The council was set up in July when provincial and federal agriculture minsiters met in Edmonton. W. H. Hom- er, Saskatchewan deputy minis- ter, is council chairman. The council is drawing up plans for a meeting ol proem- cal and federal agriculture ministers in Ottawa in Novem- ber. The meeting will permit provincial ministers to present Ottawa wiih a "positive propo- sal" regarding the land bank plan.
