Saturday, September 30, 1972 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD _ 19 Diet makes plea for farmer aid PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. (CP) The federal govern- ment should give immediate and subslantial financial assis- tance lo prairie farmers who have been forced into a finan- cial squeeze by such problems as climatic coniilions, former prime minister John Diefcn- baker said Friday. The Progressive Conservative MP for Prince Albert said prai- rie farmers are "suffering ter- rifically and are really up against it" for several reasons SERIOUS SITUATION Rapeseed producers in parti- cular face a very serious situa- tion, Mr. Diclenbaker said. "Last spring, just before seeding, the Trudeau govern- ment, through its minister of agriculture, advised farmers that they would have to change the variety of rapeseed they were producing to a low-euricic acid variety." They were advised that 1 they continued to produce the target or turret varieties ther would be no sales for that pro duction, Mr. Diefenbaker said The farmers had no alterna live but lo change. "They went ahead and go seed for an Argentine variety That variety takes a longe umber of days from scoffing o maturity. "It now, generally speaking, ies out in Hie field because of he longer period it takes to mature, with the result that he farmers are going to suf- er very heavy losses. COMPENSATION NEEDED "Because the farmers did not on their own volition in about the change, they must be entitled to compensa- .ion for the losses they will suffer. rapeseed is pro- duced, the farmers find them- selves in a desperate situation iecause of climatic conditions and the longer maturity per- iod for this variety, and they must get compensation. "In general, there should be loans extended to farmers, with- out interest, on their crops in the field unless they are able to get them threshed." Mr. Diefenbaker also said he is concerned that there will be much damp wheat harvested this year. "There should be an immedi- ate declaration made that damp wheat shall have priority in disposal by the he said. "Unless we can market this wheal, Ihere will be a heavy loss to farmers."

WASHINGTON United States government analysts have disclosed that shortly bo- fore Egyptian Presifent Anwar El-Sadat ordered Russian pil- ots and military advisers to leave his country, an ex wing fighter bomber never before seen outside the Soviet Union was delivered to Egypt. The fact of such deliveries, recently confirmed by U.S. re- connaissance satellites, would at first appear to contradict the commonly held conviction in the west that the Soviet Uni- on's failure to provide Egypt with better attack aircraft and missiles was a principal factor >enind the expulsion. But some analysis at the Pentagon and the state depart- ment believe the new plane ironically, heightened Egyptian disenchantment with the Rus- sians.

(AP) Chrysld: Corp. has alerted the National Highway Traffic Safety Admin- istration that 536 vehicles are being called back to dealers to correct possible safety-related detects.

It said 407 light-duty 1972 model Dodge trucks were being called back because portions of the steering gear assembly may not have been properly lightened. jhich the Egyptians have had n large numbers for several years. 'And that was the rub, it seems to one analyst said. 'The Egyptians wanted an advanced fighter bomber and nought they had Russian prom- ises to get some. But what was delivered is barely better than the Sukhoi-7, except that the iwing-wings allow it to take off from a shorter field." Well placed U.S. officials said Egypt was believed to have ur- gently sought two really ad- vanced weapons: MiG-23 fighter-bomb- er, not to be confused with the foxbat reconnaissance fighter which now is identified in the intelligence community as the Mig-25. 450-mile surface-to-sur- face missile, known by the NATO code name.. Scaleboard This mobile, solid-fuel weapon is believed to normally armed with a nuclear head. The Russians reportedly re fused to provide either weapon rat Instead mounted an airlift n May, June and early July that brought in crated swing-wing Sukhois. They also pro-victed the Egyptians with a handful of additional TU-16 jombers armed with Kelt air-o-surfaco missiles, well-placed 'entagon and state department sources said. But neither weapons system offers appreciably enhanced capability against Israeli mili-ary positions in the Sinai Pen-nsula or aginst Israeli cities, tho sources analyssts believe the Soviet Union would not consider providing a weapon like the Scaleboard, even without nuclear warheads, because it needs all it produces, and because it did not want to provide Egypt with a long-range weapon that could suddenly be used to trigger another war with Israel.
