Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 22 THE WTHBRIDGE HERAID Friday, September 29, 1972 U.So can't n nes LONDON (AP) The Soviet Union Is flying a supers o n i c swing-wing bomber Hie Utritcd States cannot match and n fighter plane the Americans cannot catch, the now edition of Jane's All The World's Aircraft reported today. The international authority on aerospace developments com- mented that the U.S. lag behind the two Soviet planes illustrates the dangers of shopping for bargains when planning an air lorce. The 798 page annual refer- ence book contained what it said was the first Western-pub- lished illustration of the Soviet bomber, known as Backfire. Also pictured was the .Soviet Mig-23 fighter, which has been outpacing Israel's American- made equipment in Middle East skies. Fanners union seeks aid EDMONTON (CP) The National Farmers Union in Al- berta is seeking legislation which would make it an agent with collective bargaining pow- ers for the province's farmers. In a brief to a legislative committee reviewing profes- sions and occupations, the farm- ers union requested here an act giving them this power, to be- come effective when 51 per cent of Alberta's farmers join the farmers union. The farmers union now re- ports a membership of about of Alberta's fann- ers. Farmers union spokesmen appearing before the legislative committee said the collective bargaining rights were essen- tial "in the farmer's struggle to extract fair treatment from a society dominated by the mon- opoly power of big business." The National Farmers Union wants to become sole bargain- ing agent for Alberta's farmers. The province's other farmer's union, UNIFARM, says it has a membership of about A UNIFAHM spokesman said today his organization has no plans to challenge or duplicate the national farmers union's move. Jane's editor, John W. H. Taylor, said the Soviet Union supplied the WiG-ZS to Egypt anr3, piloted by Soviets and Egyptians, it has flown recon- naissance missions over the .Middle East. "It was frustrating for crews ol Israeli Phantoms to realize that even the best missile- arnietl fighters supplied by America could not enable them to challenge a MiG-23 flying at its normal operational cruising speed and Taylor said. Jane's said (he Soviet Back- fire is believed to have been designed for an over target speed of about miles an hour with a maximum range without refuelling of miles. It said- a small preproduction series probably has been built for development testing, weap- ons trials and evaluation.

QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH MOSCOW (AP) More than G million tons of the best So- -iet wheat was still in the fields liis week, pummelled by rain nd snow and threatened by TOSt. The Soviet Press revealed his Thursday when it published 'igures on the progress ot the larvest in key areas in the eastern part of the country which were counted on to limit the shortfall in this year's crop. After the failure of the wheat crop in European Russia, where summer drought stunted the wheat, the Soviets were compelled to buy more than SI oillion of American grain, in addition to smaller purchases from Canada and Australia. Western experts said they didn't know whether the har- vest conditions east of (he Urals would send the -Soviets back to the foreign wheat mar- ket. The crop in Siberia and Ka- zakhastan had premised to be rich. Yields were higher than average. The problem was to reap the late-ripening harvest before the weather turned bad. The harvest is usually com- pleted by Sept. 15. Kccent press accounts have described a condition of chaos. Grain uncut, machinery break- downs, mismanagement and in- adequate drying facilities for the grain wet by weeks of cold rain.

The couple was married in the African country less than two months ago.

They said they had heard "quite a bit" about Toronto. As for the country they left, Yasmin said the political cli- mate "was not really but "people are trying to get out as fast as possible."
