Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THi LETHBRIDQE HERALD Thursday, 5, 1974 Plans to withdraw from CEMA B.C. egg board move may benefit consumer VANCOUVER (CP) The retail price of eggs will not necessarily drop if the B.C. Egg Marketing Board withdraws from the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency, says a board official. "But there is no reason the move could not result in con- sumer executive- secretary Ed Morgan said in an interview. Mr. Morgan said withdrawal from CEMA will enable the B.C.'egg industry to return to the "stability and solvency" it enjoyed prior to becoming a member of the national egg marketing scheme. But he said fluctuating de- mand and production costs make it difficult to predict how the move will affect con- sumer prices. The marketing board has announced it intends to pull out of CEMA on Jan. 1, 1976. NOT SATISFIED B.C. egg producers have been dissatisfied with CEMA's performance, par- ticularly in allowing Manitoba to send above-quota eggs into B.C. at cheap prices. Agriculture Minister Dave Stupich said the announce- ment essentially gives the agency a year to prove it can work effectively. University of B.C. professor Jim Forbes, author of a re- cent report to the federal government criticizing marketing boards generally, said the marketing board will be able to manipulate prices by pulling out of CEMA. "If the egg board is allowed to revert to its former prac- tices, it will continue to pick our pockets by setting prices much higher than need Mr. Forbes said. However, he said the move will not have much effect on consumer prices if the province's new marketing "super-board" is able to keep a tight rein on the egg board. Dynamite 8 Portable 8-Track Player.

Banker suggests way to fight inflation battle TORONTO (CP) A leading Canadian banker says the way to fight inflation is by increasing the supply of goods and services rather than by restrictive monetary policies. Allen Lambert, chairman of the Toronto Dominion Bank, told the annual meeting of shareholders: "We have as much to fear from the ac- cidental combination of many nations each exercising a policy of severe monetary restraint in an attempt to cure inflation, as we do from the disease of inflation itself. "Monetary policy should be conducted to permit new production facilities, new food supplies and new technology to resume growth paths which will bring world supplies into better relationships with the world demand." Mr. Lambert said a growing share of real resources must Brokerage firm rejects offer from farmers NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Officials of a stock brokerage firm rejected an offer of animal stock as dis- gruntled farmers complained that people outside agriculture are making more money on farm products than farmers are. Several members of the National Farmers Organization, each carrying a small live pig in a zippered bag, tried this week to give the porkers to employees of Merrill Lynch Pierce Fenner and Smith Inc. Only a newspaper photographer, summoned to record the incident, was will- ing to accept one of the pigs. The farmers also took cheese, crackers and milk to the offices of the firm in what one of the farmers, David Goolsby, said was an attempt to "make friends and try to get our point across." Goolsby said the fanners were trying to force a face-to- face debate over the Chicago Board of Trade. Merrill Lynch is a member of the board, which the farmers said controls 85 per cent of the farm commodities in the U.S. be transferred to the building of new capital facilities while governments will have to restrict the rate of growth of consumption-inducing expen- ditures. Canada has a special obliga- tion to the world in the specific area of energy and agriculture. He said Canada should con- tinue to export surplus energy ssupplies, but even with the development of large new reserves it remains doubtful whether Canada can go much beyond providing for its own needs. Until the hoped-for reserves are better developed, "it is es- sential that exports be limited so as to ensure our self- Mr. Lambert said. "Indeed, it may well be necessary to accelerate the development and'marketabili- ty of both frontier and tar sands sources of oil and gas to avoid a fuel crisis in this country in the early 1980s.'' International co-operation is the main hope of resolving the world's food problems, he said. Canada and other food surplus countries must provide food or credits for food next year to those countries most seriously affected by deficits and food shortages. For the longer term, he suggested a food banking program to stabilize prices at a high level to encourage grain production as well as more investment capital for developing nations. The test of ine gin is not how many people try it, but low long they stay witn it.
