Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Anything but beef A waiter ot a restaurant in New Yor k's Rockefeller Center carries a tray of filet de sole, on the third day of the nation-wide meat boycott. Supporting the "Don't Eat Beef" campaign, a group of thirteen- New York City restaurants banded together and offered patrons a 10% discount on main courses, if customers refrained from ordering beef dishes.

Alberta expected to sustain high economic growth level CALGARY (CP) The prov- ince is expected to sustain this year the high level of economic growth achieved in 1972, says a report from the department of industry and commerce. A department survey of 300 company executives showed one of their major concerns was the rate of inflation. But they generally agreed the pro- vincial gross product would rise 12 per cent for the second con- secutive year, compared with 8.5 per cent in 1971. Ed Lewis, president of the Alberta Chamber of Commerce, said the resource industries were in good shape with rising production and sales. "Oil prices are better at the wellhead and better gas-selling prices should follow. These in- creases have and will lead to further exploration, particular- ly in southeast Alberta and the plains area. Kremlin orders reorganization of its industry By THEODORE SHABAD TVew York Times Service Kremlin has ordered a sweeping reorganiza- tion of this nation's industry in a continuing search for an effi- cient system of managing the Vatican war papers released VATICAN CITY (AP) The Vatican, in wartime documents declassified Wednesday, says its "discreet" efforts to relocate Jews and Christians fleeing Nazi Germany met resistance from some countries. The papers appeared in two volumes. Some said Pope Pius XII had obatined 3.GOO visas from the Brazilian president, but "stiff conditions and bu- reaucratic slowness" made the operation impossible. The pa- pers also died the unwilling- ness of Ireland. Bolivia and Chile to admit (he refugees. One volume, SO pages long, was ealillcd The Holy See and the Victims ol the War, March 3839-Dccember 19W. The other volume. 760 pages, was The Holy Src and the World War, November J942-Deccinbcr 1943. They constituted the sixth and seventh volumes of ibe Vati- can's Ads and Documents of the Second Wortd War.

The reform, the most compre- hensive since 1965, is to be car- ried out over a three-year pe- riod and will have the effect of consolidating day-today opera- tion of the country's in- dustrial plants in a system of large government corporations combining related factories. ROLE LIMITED The corporations, inown as "producing are designed to focus industrial management at a middle level between the supervisory minis- try and the individual plant. The role of ministries wUI be limited to formulation of over- all policy in planning, invesi- msr.t and much needed technol- ogical improvement. Most individual plants will be- come simple operating divi- sions of corporations, and the decision making powers grant- ed to factory managers in the 1965 reform will be assumed by the corporations. In seeking to cope with the huge job of managing Ihe So- viet Union's economy, second only to that of the United Slates, the Kremlin has been vacillat- ing between two basic ap- proaches: complete centraliza- tion at the ministry level, which dominated during the Stalin era, and regional decen- tralization, attempted toy Ni- kila S. Khrushchev from 3957 until his downfall in 1964. The new system of middJc- tevcl corporations, whSch wiJI control not only production bat also research and development, appears to be a compromise between Ihe previous extmnes. The reorganization comes at a time when the Soviet govern- maul is slraggJing Jo put move, life into a sluggish economy af- ter a poor crop year that re- quired heavy food purchases abroad, mostly in Ihc United J Stales. "The coal industry has had the highest production since 1945 and nothing we can see will dampen its prospects." A. J. E. Child, president of Burns Foods Ltd., said the de- mand for all was high- er in 1972 and despite increased prices more beef was eaten. He predicted a strong de- mand for meat products al- though hog production might coutiuue to decEne slightly through the first half of the year. GOOD OIL YEAR L. M. Rasmussen, president of Pacific Petroleums Ltd., said this should be a good year for the oil industry even though "the outcome of the federal election and some provincial elections has created some un- certairiity for Canadian busi- ness.'' Continued high growth would depend on at least partial solu- tions to problems of future en- ergy supply and markets. Spokesmen for residential de- velopment firms expected sales to increase a bit in 1973 com- pared with 1972 while the con- struction industry in general and investment and finance companies anticipated a similar but more pronounced trend. Thursday, April 5, 1973 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD 9 Canadian immigration, total shows first increase since 1967 OTTAWA (CP) Canada re- ceived immigrants last year, up 106 over the previous year for the first increase since 1967, the immigration depart- ment says. A statement by Robert An- dras, minister of manpower and immigration, said the increase was the result of the arrival ol Asian refugees from Uganda and giving landed-im- migrant status to about persons who came as visitors in the last few years. Canadian immigration laws now prohibit persons entering the country as visitors with the intention of applying for landed immigrant status. The rulei tightened last fall. A Free trip to the MOON!
