Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, December 9, 1970 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - 23 U.S. ranchers seek tighter rein on meat shipments next year i Four-day work week idea popular NEW YORK (AP) "Four, WASHINGTON (AP) - Cattlemen are asking the United States government for a tighter rein on meat imports next year to bolster domestic beef prices. Certain kinds of meat, mostly beef, are imported under a quota formula keyed to U.S. production. As domestic output increases, the quota formula rises. 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 so-called 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 New 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 estimated 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. Nov/ 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 form 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 32 dentists per 10,000 population. to 1971, wants the United States to negotiate new limitation agreements at around the 1,062 million pounds originally in effect this year. W. D. Farr, president of ANCA, said recently that reduced imports next year "are crucial" to assure a continued gradual growth in U.S. beef production. TALK IT OVER "The beef cattle industry is at long last regaining confidence in the future as a result of relatively favorable cattle prices in 1970," Fair said. "But excessive beef imports in 1971 could destroy the long-sought-after confidence, as well as the stability of' the cattle market-aU to the eventual detriment of the American consumer," he said. Although shipments 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 shipments of Australian and New Zealand beef into their country. 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 suggests 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 opportunity 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 feel that the 10-hour day is a Soldiers bleeding at scene PHNOM PENH (Reuter) -About 200 wounded Cambodian soldiers are lying bleeding at the scene of fierce fighting northeast of here because no helicopters are available to rescue them, military sources said today. Field reports that a Cambodian battalion, besieged by North Vietnamese at the Mekong River position of Peam Chikang, had suffered major casualties circulated in the capital. Military spokesmen said they were still out of radio contact with the government force. A high command spokesman said none of the six helicopters loaned to Cambodia are operational. The population of Jamaica is about 1.9 million. step backward. They're mors inclined to the four-day, 32-hour week. While the latter is still somewhere in the future, the four-day, 40-hour week already is having an impact. Among the relatively few companies having such arrangements, the results are eye-opening. Ninety-two per cent of workers studied are pleased by the four-day week. Moonlighting is way up. Spending patterns tend to be higher. Family activities and such home hobbies as gardening appear to be greater. "Such things as camping, travel, movies, shows and sports are much higher," reports Riva Poor, editor of the work, which includes articles by 15 authors, among them economist Paul Samuelson, winner of the Nobel Prize. 60 minutes SPECIAL GOOD SELECTION OF PRERECORDED 8 TRACK AND CASSETTE TAPES SPEC.AL 4' JUST ARRIVED - 100 PIECES OF sc MY #) Radios .
