Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta TUESDAY, APRIL 30, 1946 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD PAGE Seasonally Adjusted Ceiling ASPLUND IN OPEN LETTER DEALS WITH BEEF SITUATION C. O. Asplund, supervisor of Leth- bridge Central Feeders association, has released for publication his views on the present cattle situation and how the present "deadlock" in marketing should be coped The statement follows: An open letter livestock question especially addressed to Donald Gordon. Price Controller; ecrdrer of lie of Canada. Genilemen: We are constantly being confront- ed with statements of public men regarding our duty to produce food lor s. hungry world. For six long" years of war the farmers Canada, performed a magnificent role against the most discouraging odds. History must assess no little of the credit for the victory to these men and women of the sort From the closest possible contact with these people I am convinced that thev are prepared to respond again to" a call of Christian dmy and tell them so and cot hurt the livestock industry by a polio- aimed at reducing their pro- duction. Is is quesaonaole whether any other result than reduction of livestock, will be achieved by such a policy. Two facts of utmost importance in the production of meat tonnage must be recognized and provided for ia goveiiuaent policy if normal pro- fduction is to oe maintained. To adership has appreciation of these facts. They are these, and thev should be reiterated with em- phasis because they are at the very core of the situation: i.

It is impossible to carry on us operation without a spread in or margin sufficient to pay I had the opportunity to j profit. jibe added costs involved and a Mr. Gardiner. Mr. Taggart, and Mr. Pearsall regarding the hog situation J and what, would happen if the pol- icy of grain bonuses then existent was continued. They were all of the opinion that increased hog sub- sidies have the desired effect of checking the hog production de- cline. I considered it my duty to warn them that in my opinion they were wrong. No one can say wheth- er the two alternatives I gave vroulo. have saved the events have vindicated my judg- ment as to the effect that would be produced if the existing policy Dependent On Govt. tinder tne existing extraordinary conditions of price controls, ration- ing and export emoargo on all livestock and livestock proaucts tne industry is dependent entirely upon tne government for existence. Several solutions are being sug- gested. To us the simplest and most effective would seem to be the recognition of the two basic facts' above mentioned by the ap- plication of a. seasonally adjusted ceiling allowing for the necessary spread or margin. We submit that tnis must be done immediately or ___ 111LT -luuait uuuc were continued. I suggested two serlous of production alternatives: (1) That grain bonus- es be paid the producer who fed his own grain, or (2) That grain bonuses be eliminated entirely and thai if subsidies were K> be paia thev should be paid either on the livestock or as an increase in the price of grain. There is a large part of the farming public, organ- ized and individual, who are con- vinced that either of these alterna- tives would have produced the de- sired results. Kesults Possible I have no desire to pose as a prophet but I do know that there nave been a vast number of mis- takes that could hare been avoided had our leadership been close enough in touch with actual condi- tions. I also feel sure that an honest endeavor now on the part of that leadership to face practi- cal problems would achieve results. But conversely, if the government insists on present policies I solemn- ly warn them that greatly reduced agricultural production is inevitable. Some have suggested that there Is desire to replace the produc- tion of meat with cereals. If this is so. then The government should take the -people into iheir conS- EFIL 777 LAST NIGHT TONIGHT Tomorrow Guest In The House Star Cast will occur. We consider the statements in the press imputed to governmental agencies that the present situation is a seasonal condition is mislead- ing and not according to the fac-s. In the district surrounding Leth- bridge (an important feeding area) very near aOVo of the totai cattle placed on feed last fall are still in iced lots. Any statement to the contrary can easily be proven in- accurate. To these operators a drop of 50c to per cwt. is disastrous to this year's operations and will have the further effect of seriously re- ducing their operations for the fol- lowing season. In the light of price rises in ma- chinery and gasoline which very directly affect the cost of farm production the suggested seasonal adjustments in price ceilings on beef and lamb is certainly more than fair. I plead for immediate action by those primarily concerned in order to avoid a similar debacle to that experienced in hog production. No one wants inflation. Neither do they want black markets and certainly no one should want to court the discredit that will result if the present impasse is prolonged at length resulting, as it surely will, in permanent injury to one of Canada's most important indus- tries and holding up the production of much needed food.

Ottawa and German Election Seen as Triumph Over Hitlerism TO CALGARY POST The smashing victory of Ger-' macy's new political partv. tbe' Christian Social Union la the'coun- ty council elections in the Amer- ican zone, should be recognized for; what it really triumph of' Christian principles over the evils of Hitleriszn which still tear at the vitals of the Reich.

Arab Boycott Causes Deaths JERUSALEM, April (Reuters) Arab boycott of Jewish goods in Palestine is not being fully ob- served but it is reported here thas already it has hounded at least two Arab merchants to death. The boycott was started in January as an economic weapon against Zionism. The main diffi- culty in enforcing it is that there are not enough Arab manufactured good available and an Arab shop- keeper who wants to stay in busi- ness must deal with the well- stocked warehouses in the all- Jewish city of Tel Aviv. Recently an Arab broker, sus- pected of having sold land to Jews, was shot dead in daylight in one of the busiest streets in Jaffa. Arab merchants who have failed to observe the boycott have re- ceived letters threatening them with death if they continued to deal with Jews. Sow the so-called Arab "Black Hand" organisation has turned its attention to Jewish merchants in an effort to make the boycott 100 per cent effective. US. Market Safety Valve For Cattle "WINNIPEG, April L. Campbell. Manitoba minister of agriculture said Monday the Unit- ed States market was still the safety valve of livestock production and it might heip marketing and labor difficulties in that field if restored. The need for a better marketing system was demonstrated by the drop in cattle shipments last week to 30 per cent of normal and the ever-recurring emergencies in the livestock industry, the minister said. Wartime restrictions with respect to labor and marketing problems exercised by the Dominion govern- ment tended to have a stabilizing effect on, the livestock industry. While it didn't solve some of its problems he would prefer to see Dominion jurisdiction, continued rather than left to the provinces, Mr. Campbell said. In the busv soring season, ir stock shipments were sure to fall oS because farmers were occupied in the fields and could nos get time to haul to the nearest snipping point. Mr. Campbell added that aa. unusual season this year had ag- gravated the situation because seed- ing was general all at once over a bigger part of the west than in normal years.

April Senator Allen Eilender asserted Mondav that United States was trving to "revive s. dead horse" by the loan to Britain. As the senate edged closer to its first test vote on the financial arrange- ments, the Louisiana Democrat argued that Britain had lost her pre-eminence in world trade, that the dominions were competing with her industrially and that the loan would only be a temporary "shos in the arm." Earlier Senator Ralph Maybank (Dem_ S.C.) announced he "had received state department assurances that, none of the loan funds would be used by Britain to foster the production of colonial cotton. Senator Robert Taft (Rep, Ohio) quickly challenged this and "Be Cautious In Al!
