In a brief presented to the prime minister Tuesday evening, prior to the 90-minute meeting between Mr. Trudeau and pool officials Vednesday morning.

the pool said the theory that an aggressive staling effort would solve all of the grain problems is a fallacy. It said those alio are publicly offering increased grain sales as a solution to the farm problem are suggesting that only Canada is having wheat marketing difficulties. "Export figures for other countries indicate that all exporting countries are in difficulty and many are worse off than we in Canada." the pool brief said. It said it is becoming inceasingly vicar that there are too many farms and if farm families are to have a reasonable income there will have to be team. farms in the future.

"The government should set up a eapital fund for purchase of small uneconomic farms on the voluntary decision Of the farmer," the brief said. E. K.

Turning to the tractor protest, Mr.

Atkinson said, "The very fact this protest began and has has shown there are an a wiul lot of people who are unhappy and know what the issues me." The travelling public has been informed of farm income position. and commerce which moves on trucks has been slowed down, which is an indication of the power farmers have. "Those participating in the protest learned many things and they're not going to be the same again. They learned they could interfere with commerce. They learned the power front working together, And they also learned just sitting Passively by isn't going to do a thing.

They learned about the interests which oppose them, and about some of the that don't understand them." He called the Regina demonstration a es ay a "token thing." On his arrival in Regina Tuesday night, the prime minister told newsmen that he had always wanted to drive a tractor, and perhaps he would get a chance Wednesday, "We'd be delighted to take him out to a farmand give hint the full course," Mr. Atkinson said. "Especially if he's willing to pay the bills." "Irs rather interesting to note that he is visiting the fa no of one of his members (A, D. Douglas. MP for AssiWbola) rather than the farms of his neighbors," Mr.

Atkinson said. The SFU president also discussed the im media te dentands of farmers: an immediate injection of cash into the Prairie economy, and restoration of feed grains to Canadian Wheat Board conteel. "The government has a responsibility in the maintenance of farm income." Restoring feed grains to the control of the wheat board is not going to cost the government a dime. he said. It will help the farm income situation, stablize the western economy and provide a base for a rational development of livestock production, If the present situation is continued, there will be more rapid bankeutitcy ef grain producers and more instability in poultry and livestock complete break do ix of the rural economy." "The long-run program has to be a comprehensie program that will sustain and improve the net farm income in such a way that we get proper use of our land, proper opportunities for our farmers a national farm program so that it can be developed right across the country.

It has to take into realities of the situation." Farmers were exploited by a few large corporations, and the government has to accept a strong farm bargaining group to negotiate with governments at all levels. "We need a public statement to say whether we need to produce food in this country, what foods, and under what conditions," and another to say whether there is going to be a private enterpremier system of fanning or large CO rporation-type farming. Canadian farmers are the only farmers On their own, basically, "We're just swinging in the wind." Some form of subsidy was required, Mr. Atkinson said. Ile repeated government has a to maintain income, Paul Babey, president of the Farmers Union of Alberta, commenting Tuesday on the international price situation, said farmers want to be protected from lower prices, "Almos-t all our competitors receive subsidies and if Canadian farmers are to exist they will have to get similar help."

William a ht a n. national leader of the Canadian Communist party. told a neWS conference in Regina Tuesday. Mr. Kashtan is reporting to Western Canadian branches of the Communist party on the results of the in conference of Communist and workers parties.

Al.though the NDP i not a socialist party, he said it is progressive and this explains the inroads it made and may reveal a shift to true socialism by Canadians. True socialism. which involves Public ownership of all industry and commerce. is the only system that can correct the country's social and economic ills and raise its standard of living. The CommtiniSt party Saskatchewan is not large, but iI is viable and gathering increasing support, he said.

'rhe party's strongest membership is in Ontario. B.C. and Quebec. Regarding the grain problem on the Prairies, he said the Communist party has long advocated a two price system. He said this is only a stopgap and the final answer lies in complete government control of production and marketing.

Mr. Kashlan said foreign investment in Canada should be on the basis of repayable loans rather than through ownership of industry and natural resources. The country's sovereignty and economic independence is interfered with as things now stand. he said. and despite past federal govnrnment proposals that industry and resources be Canadian controlled, nothing has been done.

Again, his solution was state ownership. Mr. Kashtan said the Canadian party supported the occupation of Czechoslovakia by the five Warsaw Pact nations and history will prove that action correct. The Dubcek re control ot prouticuon ana marketing. Mr.

Top priority in converting the old sewage treat ment plant in northwest Regina into a recreation area will go to eliminating the many hazards on the site, with the costs to be borne by the engineers' department, council decided Tuesday.
