Harry Kancs said 80 per cent of the grain cars reaching Van- couver in the last three days contained wheat. He said rape- seed, flax and grain screenings lad been in plentiful supply, jut ships were waiting for wheat. He recreated a complaint he had made Monday that there nadn't been sufficient work for :wo shifts of grain workers be- cause of a shortage of grain cars. He said at that time that about 600 grain cars a day were reaching the port but 750 were required to keep the grain landlers working steadily. Mr. a n c s said Wednesday he loped the situation would con- inue to improve. MYSTIFIED AT FUSS However, port manager Bill Duncan said he is mystified at the grain handling "fuss." He said ani average of 630 grain cars were arriving daily and there were 12 million bu shels of grain in storage. He said 23 million bushels of grain have been shipped from the port since Sept. 1, which was better than anticipated. He said an average 27 mil- lion bushels a month is export- ed and there is still some time to go. Mr. Duncan said 10 ships were currently in berth and an- other 12 were at anchor.

Civil servants seek mediation EDMONTON (CP) T h c I Civil Service Association of Al- berta today asked the provin- cial government for an arbi- tration board to settle a dispute involving a government propos- al to reclassify tradesmen. _ Association president Bill Broad, in a letter to Labor Minister Dr. Bert Hohol, asked that an arbitration board be set up and that the implemen- ation dale for reelassification of tradesmen be suspended until the board's findings are made known. Mr. Broad said the govern- ?ment reclassification proposal is contrary to the spirit of the agreement between the govern- ment and the association. The government earlier an- nounced its intention !o re- classify the association's 800 various tradesmen to a job title of maintenance mechanic, Tuid at the same time suggested there would be a reduction in pay for future employees. Mr. Broad said the proposed rclcassification scheme reduc- ed tlie negotiation position of the 17 trades to that of two arbitrarily established groups. He added that tlie plan is of such a magnitude that it can only be successfully resolved by a third party. The association appointed Peter Freeman of the Univer- sity of Alberta as its represen- tative to Uie requested arbitra- tion board. TRUCKS 2421A 1971 FORD 4x4 V8, R. 2353A 1968 G.M.C. V8, 3sp. R 2510A 1968 FARGO 400 Army worm bill EDMONTON (CP) cost of insecticides to control the Bertha army worm out- break in Alberta's rapeseed crops this year was compared with last year, the agriculture depart- ment said today. Approximately acres of rapcsecd were sprayed dur- ing August using pounds of lannate. The worst infesta- tions occurred in east central Alberta in the. Wainwright, Vermilion and Vegreville areas. The department estimated less than three per cent of Al- berta's total rapcsoed acreage was destroyed. This year's low losses, iri spite of the heavy worm infestations, were attri- buted to "everyone being pre- pared for the outbreak." Agriculture Minister Hugh Horner said his department tested five new unlicensed in secticides to try to find an el foclivo alternative to tlio high Chassis and cab S3200 y-toxlc lannate. Two of the hemicals tested look promis- ng, he said.
