Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta W�dn�iday, Deetmbtr 9, 1970 - THE lETHBRIDOE HERALD - 23 U.S. ranchers seek tighter rein on meat shipments next year FouT'day work week idea popular WASHINGTON (AP) - Cattlemen ore asking the United States government for a tighter rein on meat importa next year to bolster domestic beel prices. Certain kinds of meat, mostly beef, are imported under a quota formula keyed to U.S. production. As domestic output increMes, the quota formula tkm. But the American National Cattlemen's Association, one of the strongest lobbying groups in Washington farm circles, has asked the agriculture department to seek "voluntary restraint" agreements with foreign suppliers at no more than 1970 levels. C. W. McMillan, executive vice-president of ANCA, told a reporter that department officials are "non-committal" at this point but indicated the request would be considered. The mh�Ued voluntary restraining agreements in effect for 1970 originally called for about 1,062 million pounds of imported meat. About 70 per cent or so normally comes from Australia and N^w Zealand. CANADA MAIN WORRY But the main trouble, as cattlemen see it, has been with Canada, which did not agree to limiting meat shipments. Much Australian and New Zealand beef came into the U.S. through Canada until it was shut off last summer. The current estimate for meat imports this year is 1,160 million pounds or about 98 million more than Agriculture Secretary Clifford M. Hardin originally estbnated early in 1970. Increased shipments resulted in the United States suspending last June 30 the original quota system and setting a larger revised total for this year. Now the ANCA, looking ahead Disappointed with hudget EDMONTON (CP) - Grant Notley, leader of the Alberta New Democratic Party, described the new federal budget as "disappointing." Mr. Notley said his party was disappointed because unemployment, "the major problem in Canada today," was not effectively coped with. "Federal policy should be designed to stimulate growth and create jobs." Mr. Notley said a "pump-priming approach was needed in the fonn of reduced taxes, particularly for low-income Canadians." He expressed concern about the effect of unemployment on the gross national product. FEW DENTISTS New Mexico has S2 denUsta per 10,000 population. to 1971, wanta the United States to negotiate new limitation agreementa at around the 1,062 million pounds originally in effect this year. W. D. Farr, president of ANCA, said recently that reduced importa next year "are cruciar' to assure a continued gradual growth in U.S. beef production. TALK IT OVER "The beef cattle industry is at tong last regaiining confidence in the future as a result of relatively favorable cattle prices in 1970," Farr said. "But excessive beef importa in 1971 could destroy the long-sought-after confidence, as well as the stabiUty of the oaUle market-�U to the eventual detriment of the American consumer," he said. Although shipmenta of Australian and New Zealand beef through Canada have been shut off by U.S. customs officials, there has been evidence that the Canadians have been sending in more of their own while keeping some of the third-country meat. McMillan and. Farr said they have talked over the situation with Canadian livestock representatives in an effort to find solutions. They said Canadian producers favor a U.S.-type import quota program to limit shipmenta of Australian and New Zealand beef into their country. NEW YORK (AP) - "Four, forty and leisure." This is the slogan of the four-day, 40-hour week that experiments show may have enormous Impact on American society. It also is the subject of 4 days, 40 hours, a new book that is evoking an unexpected tide of comment from all over the United States. It suggesta that a revolution in work hours already is under way. Among the advantages to management of working fewer days but longer hours, as found in studies of companies that have implemented such plans: Happier work environment, greater production, less waste in production, less turnover of help, easier recruitment of workers, less absenteeism and tardiness.' And for employees; More leisure time, better family life, lower commuting costs, avoidance of rush hours, more time for personal appointments, the oppmiunity to work at a second job. There are disadvantages, to be sure, but this pioneer study of the phenomenon turns up rel- atively few, and almost any reader is likely to conclude that the shorter week-if not .shorter hours-is catching on. Shorter hours, however, may also result from the shorter week. That is, unions like the idea of four days but tend to (eel thai the 10-hour day is a Sokliers hleeding at scene PHNOM PENH (Reutcr) -About 200 wounded CJambodian soldiers are lymg bleeding at the scene of fierce fighting nOTtheast of here because no helicopters are available to rescue them, military sources said today.
