Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 13, 1874 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD i TREE PRUNING ON NORTH PARKSIDE DRIVE Warm weather boon to city work crews Lingering warm weather is making life easy for city street sanding and other crews. The sanders have been call- ed out only once so far this fall which has helped ease the strain put on the sanding and snow and ice removal budget by last winter's freeze thaw cycles. "We're sliding into the end of the budget in good shape, but one or two bad storms could offset said Randy Holfeld, city engineering director. Some was set aside for snow and ice removal and for sanding in the 1974 budget. In 1973 some was budgeted for snow and ice removal and sanding, but only was spent because of the mild winter. Construction of sewer and water lines in the industrial park and in West Lethbridge are also being helped along by the mild weather, Mr. Holfeld said. Penetration of frost into the ground has been delayed and there's not quite as much frozen dirt to handle, he said. "Any outside operations, even refuse collection, are always more efficient and speedy when the men aren't bundled he added. "But I don't know how you could assign a dollar value to it." Parks Superintendent Bill Brown said the good weather is a boon for crews working on the West Lethbridge park as well as on normal fall and winter work such as tree pruning. Work on the west side park now under way includes foun- dation work for washrooms and shelters, development of a walkway around the lake and driving pilings for footbridges to islands in th> lake. U.S. livestock import quota 'political EDMONTON (Staff) The imposition of import quotas against Canadian livestock products by the United States government was a political manoeuver to save votes for the pending election in that country, says the president of the Montana Farmers' Union. Clyde Jarvis of Great Falls told The Herald in an inter- view this week while his organization was the only one from Montana to resist the import quota, the U.S. govern- ment did not have to impose it. Earlier in the evening, in his address to the annual banquet for Unifarm here, Mr. Jarvis chastized Earl Butz, U.S. secretary of agriculture, as "the greatest agricultural hypocrite of them all." Mr. Butz paints a good pic- ture for agriculture but his ef- forts are aimed at big business, not the farming communities, he said. Mr. Jarvis said the recently announced food purchase program for school lunches boasted about by Mr. Butz didn't not help one U.S. rancher. All the meat bought by the government for this program was brought in from South America for a large firm in the U.S. which has a ranching operation in Argen- tina. There was no Montana or Canadian beef in the program. He pointed to a "voluntary" program to control exports in the U.S. announced by Mr. Butz as the type of "political doubletalk" facing agri business in the U.S. This voluntary program had man- tatory regulations. Further critizing the big business approach to agriculture by the U.S. government, Mr. Jarvis said the producer has been the "sacrificial scapegoat" for too many years. Agricultural prices dropped seven per cent in one year while food prices increased 15 per cent in the same period. Consumers continue to blame farmers for the high price of food in stores they are boycotting. "Agriuclture prices don't determine the retail price of food someone between does." He said sugar beets in Mon- tana returned farmers per ton in 1974. At this price, he added, the retail stores get from sugar produced from one ton of beets. In the wheat sector, a bushel of that grain which sells for can make worth of bread. Puffed wheat is worse. A package of 5.5 ounces sells for 65 to 85 cents. "That's expensive hot air." he said. While the consumer is screaming about high food prices he doesn't worry that tobacco in cigarettes costs a pound. He doesn't com- plain when the price of liquor increases either. Without considering the price of liquor, Americans drink enough of the spirits that if the grain were eaten instead of being distilled and brewed, it would feed 20 million people. This industry utilizes 4.1 million tons of grain, 1.6 per cent of the total U.S. grain, crop. To chnnt'e the public's nt- titudi: agricult must be more unity in the in- dustry.
