Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Agriculture boss chews media for food worries By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The media came under strong attack from Agri- culture Minister Eugene Whelan in a recent interview in which he blamed stories in news- papers on radio and television for creating worries among Ca- nadians that there are great shortages coming in food. Mem- bers of the who inter- viewed hint argued that they were reporting what food whole- salers and suppliers were tel- ing the retail outlets. It was a sharp give and take argument with no punches palled on either side. The minis- ter is noted for saying what is in his mind in blunt language. This time was no exception. He was also critical of the economists in the agriculture department. He made it clear that he believes some of his so- called had missed the target completely in their forecasts. The battle of words developed when one correspondent quoted from The Globe and Mail of To- ronto a report that said that bread would rise by six cents this summer and fall. The ques- tioner suggested that was an much higher than Whelan had predicted ear- lier when he had said bread might go up by one cent a loaf. The minister bridled at the suggestion tie had been away off the mark in his prediction. He when you quote that paper All I can Bay is the media if anybody created an environ- ment for ripoff by unscrupulous millers or bread man- ufacturers they have certainly created the envi- ronment because- everybody has it in their mind' now that food must go up. You and I both know that when bacon jumps twenty five cents a pound there's nothing by a G-D ripoff in that's all it amounts to. taken an un- scrupulous markup and beef that has to hang for fourteen the bastards that are rais- ing the price 40 and 50 cents a pound are just being unwar- ranted gangsters as far as I'm said the minister. He was asked if he was im- plying the same thing would ap- Body weight stays despite diet plan N.Y.

David an assistant professor of nutrition and psy- says the efficiency with which the body uses a ca- lorie of food is not always con- stant. He says research has led to the theory that each individual body has an it strives to maintain. almost as though your brain doesn't trust your Drivers dragged from cars NEW YORK Ramp- aging youths dragged several motorists from their cars and beat them during a disturbance touched off by the fatal shooting of a bus-theft suspect. Roving bands of black youths hurled rocks and bottles Mon- day night as they fought with looted stores and at- tacked automobiles in the Ja- maica section of Queens. Four persons were arrested on bur- glary charges. Police said the clash involved about 400 youths. They said the shooting that apparently precip- itated the disturbance was acci- dental and occurred when the black suspect tried to take a white plainclothes policeman's revolver during a scuffle. Sixteen including five were treated for minor injuries. Police said three stores were looted and 11 cars damaged. The dead man. shot in the was identified as James 27. A second identified as James was cap- tured. Neither suspect was police said. Owens was charged with grand larceny and reckless en- dangernient. New inquiry launched into killings WASHINGTON The justice department has opened its new investigation of the 1970 killing of four Kent State Uni- versity students. At the same time a senator suggested the first shot in the incident may have been fired by an FBI informer. Attorney-General Elliot Rich- ardson said he revived the case make sure the. department knows as much as can possibly be learned as to whether there were violations of federal law in this Four students were killed and i o'hers were wounded' by National Guard members fired a 13-second burst of fenfire into a group of students c'omonstrating May 4. the dispatch of United Levitsky said in an In- terview.

He said obese persons could be given chemical substitutes for the these sub- stitutes would force the brain to read a false message and direct the body to work harder to eliminate the fat. Levitsky said even when diets are successful in helping to shed extra the longterm prognosis for dieters is poor. statistics of recidivism are higher for those recovering from weight reduction than from heroin he said.

Whelan input for the total cost in a loaf of bread U about 11 cents. You figure out the rest of the cost. We say they don't need to go that high but these big com- panies have got control of the bread process- ing bakeries in Canada and they can just about damn well do wV-.t they This brought the immediate query from the press members interviewing him as to why the federal government had not put teeth into the Prices Review Board.
