Mr. Trudeau will also open an airshow at Abbotsford in British Columbia earlier that day. The prime minister's office explained that the decision to keep the two engagements was made on the grounds that the invitations had been accepted long before Premier W. A. C.

A. (Bud) Olson Monday underlined the govern- ment's new policy on cash advances as the best possible solution for wheat farmers caught in ihe low-price-poof- sales crunch. Mr. Olson said neither the opposition critics nor the farm- ers seemed fully aware of the potential of the change' which provides for full interest free cash advances on Aug. 1, even though outstanding debts may remain on the current crop year. Speaking in aji emergency wheat debate in Parliament the agriculture minister said that, if pushed to the limit, the ad- vances would amount to a total of million to farmers in the new crop year. Realistically, however, he an- ticipated that farmers would apply for between S250 million and million, which could be in their hands in the next three months. This type of assistance is the most effective way of channel- ling badly needed "cash into the hands of those farmers who need it most because of low wheat sales and tiepreswd prices, Mr. Olson said. Even if acreage payments were made on the level of SI or S2 per acre to most farmers, it would not be enough, be told the Commons. He urged members to analyze and agree on the most import- ant problems facing the farmer, before suggesting "shotgun solutions" which would not have the desired effect on providing a significant cash flow a substitute for sufficient grain sales. ;
