ation in the milk processing industry here probably is as good an example as can be found of how corporations have come to dominate the in dustry Concern about concentra tion in the industry generally was expressed in a recent report of the food prices review board In a brief to the milk com- mission of Ontario the board said the number of processing plants declined by more than 32 per cent between 1969 and 1973 Changes in the structure of the dairy processing industry are occurring with such speed that it is exceedingly difficult to keep up with them This is true both of the industrial and fluid milk sectors Industrial processors are cheese factories and crea menes In May George Weston Ltd purchased a controlling share of Clark Dairy Ltd The Ot tawa firm had been an independent processor for about 35 years and with 125 employees was the last of the large independents in the area COMPANIES DOMINATE Several small fluid milk dairies still operate but the Ottawa market is

drive up coal production by stup mining increasing areas of the west could break the back of Mon- tana says Lt Gov Bill Christiansen Christiansen, Montana s energy chief said the state already is facing unacceptable sacrifices The aepdithent of the interior proposal that in effect recommends a 15 fold increase in Montana strip mining by 1985 poses a serious threat to Montana s land water and way of life Christiansen said Making matters potentiallv worse he said is that the 15- fold increase proposal represents a compromise from a possible 23 fold boost that would have been Mon- tana s share of the all out development potential of western stnppable coal The federal report forecasts coal production involving dis- ruption of at least 6 000 acres or more than nine square miles every year by 1965 Christiansen said if a proposed federal study of coal s role in solving U S energy problems is made fairlv I believe they'll find the increase in mining can t be done without ignoring the potential of massive destruc tion ot the west Ke suggested the question of strip mining s effects on un derground water alone is a sleeping dog that could awake to block the proposed increases at least in Mon- tana Christiansen said un imd wjter v td! 'o d mestir and hvesioc1. supplies particularly in ana eastern Montana is carried in the coal seams and would be disrupted by widespread mining The official estimated the maximum coal development in the stale bv 1980 will be less than one-third the production goals of the department of interior That would be about quadruple current production Meantime the Great Falls Tribune reported the federal bureau of land management plans to lease 200 million tons of coal in an area already shown to be environmentally fragile The 200 million tons would be more than 20 times the amour.' of coal strip mined in Montana during all of last year The newspaper said the site is around the towns of Decker and Birney 90 miles southeast of Billings CASH FOR YOUR CAR Dunlop Ford will pay you cash for your car if it is one of the select units we require immediately CONTACT THE USED CAR BUYER NOW AT FOR D CORNER 16 AVE. and M.M.
