Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 27, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Mprn c.i, Beef ban backed OTTAWA (CP) The ban on imported beef treated with the cancer-linked growth hormone diethylstilbestrol (DBS) is causing higher domestic beef prices, the food prices review board reported Friday. But it said in a statement that the ban, announced earlier this month by Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan, is warranted. "In view of the fact that Ca- nadian producers have been denied the use of DES there was justification for the restriction on imports of cattle fed with said the statement. "To be assured of meat free from DES we must be prepared to pay higher costs that the ban incurs." The statement said beef prices rose five per cent this week in a group of Toronto su- permarkets monitored by the board. But there had been a levelling off in the last few days. Dr. Gordon Burton, a board member, said he expects beef prices to remain stable for the next week or 10 days. This would depend on the number of cattle marketed. More than head of cattle were sold last week, up from about a week ear- lier, Dr. Burton said. If this continues, prices should remain stable. Beryl Plumptre, board chairman, said the board has not noticed any unusual features in the way beef prices have been fluctuating. They did not seem to reflect any unusual actions by packers or retailers. The board said beef prices are still eight per cent below January levels and 16 per cent below peaks hit least summer. National oil company legislation to be unveiled Lines up shot Prime Minister Trudeau lines up a shot as he tries out pool table at Bloorview Children's Hospital in Toronto Friday. Thousands may head for Canada SARNIA, Ont. (CP) Legislation to set up a national petroleum corporation will be in- troduced in Parliament next week, Prime Minister Trudeau said Friday during a meet-the-people trip through _ southern Ontario. Speaking in answer to a stu- dent's question at a Woodstock high school, he said he did not think he was "scooping Parliament" by revealing that a bill to create a Canadian petroleum company, will be unveiled within a few days. Later, he declined to give any further details except to say "we've changed the name to make it bilingual." Creation of a national petro- leum corporation as a govern- ment enterprise has been an- nounced government policy for some time. It followed demands from the New Democratic Party for nationalization of one or more of the existing privately- owned oil companies. The government, however, would not go that far. The proposed Crown corpo- ration is expected to receive legislative authority to operate in all phases of the petroleum business from exploration to retail sales. PROMOTE DEVELOPMENT However, Energy Minister Donald Macdonald has said its main function, at least in the early stages, will be to encourage development of the country's remaining petroleum resources. Mr. Trudeau's comment came after a question about recent threats by Transport Minister Jean Marchand to nationalize CP Rail if it does not provide better freight service, especially in western grain traffic. The prime minister said his government does not believe in nationalization right and left as some socialists do, but only in selected cases such as Panarctic Oils Ltd., Air Canada and Canada Development Corp. "We will only take over the CPR if we can persuade Cana- dians that we can do a better job of it than the present man- agement. If we don't think we can do so we won't take it over." Mr. Trudeau spent about an- hour at the Woodstock school, where he landed by helicopter on his way to Sarnia from To- ronto. About secondary school students gave him a standing ovation in a hot and humid gymnasium. Their questions ranged all the way from why the government, does not stop strikes in the public service to why members of Parliament are entitled to pensions after six years in office. The prime minister said re- cent strikes by airport firemen and postal workers have been settled without using legislation to force them back to work. The government preferred to believe "Canadians will, on balance, do the right thing" and live up to their contracts. However, labor organizations sometimes needed to be told: "You're always giving the gov- ernment the devil; why don't you sometimes give your own members the He said some MPs need pen- sions and some don't. But he saw "a little tendency for people in a democracy to knock their members of Parliament more than they should." This made it harder "to get good people to give up their lives to serve their fellow men He was shocked at the outcry when remuneration for MPs was raised to from a few years ago. But river pilots could call for television stars could get even more without a complaint from the public. TOURS WIDE AREA From Sarnia, Mr. Trudeau flew Friday night to Sudbury to attend the annual convention of the Ontario Liberal party. He returns to Ottawa late today. Earlier Friday in Toronto, he spent an hour at Bloorview Hospital for physically handicapped children. He talked to many of the children, helped some of them with arithmetic problems, sampled their work in a cooking class and joined in some of their games In Sarnia. he talked with 400 Liberals at a reception held by the Sarnia-Lambton party association. In a brief low-key speech, he said one of Canada's greatest strengths is the spirit that keeps its people hanging to- gether in spite of their social and economic differences. In a noon speech to Toronto- district Rotarians, he again rejected price and wage controls as no solution to inflation. Only increased production would do it. At the same time, he said his government is "declaring war on the profiteers and gougers. who might be templed to take advantage of domestic and worldwide shortages by piling up higher profits than they deserve." 10-bushels quota set WINNIPEG (CP) The Canadian Wheat Board Friday announced the immediate authorization of the 10-bushels quota for Alberta red winter C wheat in all shipping blocks.

Immigration officials said Friday the 300 are the first of about persons for whom the department has applications to join relatives here. Under the program, agreed to in talks between Prime Minister Trudeau and Premier Chou Enlai in Peking last October, Chinese- Canadians can apply to have relatives join them. M. G. Clark, senior director of the immigration depart- ment's foreign service, said Friday that since the agreement the Chinese have been highly co-operative. He said he expects the first 280 and will arrive in Canada in the early summer. After that there probably would be a steady increase. There had been no indication from the Chinese officials that any of the applications would be rejected. The Canadian embassy in Peking submits the applications to Chinese authorities who make contact with the relatives. If the relatives want to emigrate they apply for an exit visa and fill out an immigration form. When the exit visa is ap- proved, relatives must be processed by Canadian officials for such things as medical clearance. This is done in Canton. The applications fall into two categories, sponsored and nominated. Sponsored billion involved in lawsuit ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) Nelson Bunker Hunt sued Mobil Oil Corp. for nearly billion Friday, charging breach of contract and anti- trust violations in what was described as one of the largest lawsuits ever filed in the United States. According to the suit, the Dallas, Tex., man's oil holdings in Libya were nationalized last year because Mobil and other oil companies refused to live up to an agreement signed in 1971. Hunt's Libya oil holdings were valued at billion, the suit said. The suit alleges Hunt, Mobil and 12 other oil producing corporations agreed in 1971 "to unite and stand together both in their negotiations with the Libyan government and in their reactions to programs introduced by the government." applicants are near relatives, wives and children. Acceptance of them is almost routine. Nominated relatives, such as nephews and nieces, must fulfil slightly more rigid requirements. Canadian officials make sure they will be able to earn a living in Canada. The immigration department has had a similar family re-unification program in effect for years dealing with Europeans, including those from the Communist bloc. LIMIT PRESS CONTENT SANTIAGO (Reuter) The Chilean military regime will not allow news media to publish stories with political content. Interior Minister Oscar Bonilla said Friday. Bonilla said the government ''will not permit any publication to enter into po- litical themes." KENOGAMI, Que. (CP) Evidence shows that a mudslide which swept away 31 residents of St. Jean Vianney three years ago was a "natural phenomenon which could not have been District Coroner Louis-Alphonse Laliberte con- cluded in a report released Friday. Testimony from various soil experts and studies of the re- gion showed that despite in- dications of previous mudslides in the area, including a large one a few days before the disaster on May 4, 1971, there was no possibility of foreseeing a slide of such magnitude. At about 11 p.m. on May 4, 1971, ground in the east end of St. Jean Vianney opened up, dragging 31 persons and 36 of the community's 356 homes along Riviere aux Vases to the Saguenay River. Workers in a bus returning from Arvida first spotted streets crumbling and banged on neighborhood doors to alert residents, most of whom were still awake watching a Stanley Cup hockey playoff game on television. The coroner's inquiry offi- cially concerned the death of Roger Brassard of St. Jean Vianney. So far the bodies of 19 of the 31 victims have been' recovered.
