The Alberta Milk Pro- ducers Association is repor- ed to be seeking a per hundredweight increase in milk used for drinking. A per hundredweight increase was awarded producers for industrial milk used in the production of ice cot- tage cheese and creams ear- lier this month.

The toughest debate of the anticipated four days of hear- ings is expected to be on a brief by Canada Safeway Ltd. which suggests a two- price system that would make home-delivered milk cost more tran milk bought from a store. The as in the has brought strong op- position from the dairies which do the unions representing milk truck drivers and salesmen and the Consumer's Associa- tion of Canada. Safeway's brief argues that home deliveries are ineffici- expensive and result in higher prices to the con- Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes has supported the brief. Tom Sweeting of business agent for local 897 of the Driver Plant Warehouse and Can- nery said the two-price sys_tem would elim- inate 500 milkmen's jobs in Southern Alberta. Mr. Sweeting contends the real objective of the Safeway brief is to eliminate competi- tion and then sell milk at a lower cost to bring customers into the stores. Mr. Wiggins said all other provinces in Canada have the two-price addng that in British the cost of milk is also 10 cents a quart higher than in Al- berta. Mr. Wiggins said the two- price system has resulted in a lower consumption of milk. ASTRO REALTY LTD. we a home let ut sell yours.
