Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, December 14, 1974 United States border due to open to Canadian cattle Monday Monday is the day Canadian cattle will be allowed to move into the United States. When that number have entered, American quotas will stop cattle imports from Canada un- til Aug. 11, 1975. The only exceptions to the ban are registered purebred breeding cattle of the basic British breeds such as Aberdeen Angus and Hereford and dairy cattle. They can cross anytime. The ban covers all exotic breeds, feeders and slaughter cattle. That's how the situation stands now, according to William Hartley, an entry clerk with the U.S. Customs at Sweetgrass, Mont. Meanwhile, in Calgary, the secretary of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association Chris Mills, said he is optimistic that the U.S. will relax the ban early in 1975 under pressure from U.S. breeders. The quotas, imposed Nov. 16 and retroactive' to Aug. 12, lump breeding animals with animals for slaughter. The quota has been criticized by Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan. It is through Canada that U.S. cattlemen receive European breeds, such as Charolais, Simmental and Chianina, because the U.S. government allows cattle imports from Europe of only the basic British breeds A spokesman for the federal agriculture department at Ottawa said the problem had been discussed at a recent meeting in Washington and "we're not optimistic" that changes will be made. The restrictions do not apply to purebred animals. But the difficulty arises in cross-bred animals and those purebred animals that do not have a "herd book" on file with the U.S. agriculture department which traces ancestry of the animals back three generations. Before the quota was imposed, purebred breeding stock was allowed into the U.S. duty- free and Canadian breeders with crossbreeds circumvented the provisions by shipping their animals as slaughter cattle and paying duty of IVz cents a pound. J. R. Brewster, Canadian agriculture depart- ment veterinarian at Coutts, told The Herald in a telephone interview, the quotas are "ridiculously low" for cattle. The cattle are all that will be admitted across the continent, and border points will open simultaneously so geography will provide no ad- vantage. The Coutts Sweetgrass crossing will open at 10 a.m. for cattle, he said. Other quotas include: swine, 275 pounds of beef and veal and pounds of pork. Cattle crossing the border will have to have the U.S. agriculture department inspection before the customs service phones Washington for permission to admit them, he said. "They're making it as difficult as they possibly said Dr. Brewster. "This quota system is just one government against another, playing stupid he added. Canada imposed a slaughter cattle quota, he said, so the Americans imposed their quotas in retaliation.

Leaving accident scene nets fine By KEN ROBERTS Herald Staff Writer FORT MACLEOD A 34 year old Calgary man was convicted in District Court here Friday of failing to re- mam at the scene of an acci- dent which resulted in the death of a woman. James Holtz, was fined by Chief Judge L. S. Turcotte He was given until Feb. 17 to pay the fine. Mr Holtz was charged after Felicia Big Weasel, 19, of Brocket was found lying critically injured on Highway 3 about one mile west of here in the early morning hours of May 30. Court was told Thursday Mr. Holtz was arrested short- ly afterwards at a roadblock on Highway 3 about 25 miles west of the accident In sentencing the accused, Chief Judge Turcotte said he didn't think Mr. Holtz was responsible for the accident. He said the accused's actions "did not contribute" to the death of the woman. This is not a case where if the accused had stayed around he would have saved the woman's life, Chief Judge Turcotte said T J Walker, a Fort Macleod physician, told the court he examined Miss Big Weasel about 1 30 a m on May 30 She was suffering from mul- tiple fractures, including a fracture of the skull, brain damage and was in a severe state of shock The injuries resulted from a severe impact The girl's pulse was weak and she had almost no blood pressure. She was given medication and her blood pressure went up for a little while, Dr. Walker said However, she had a relapse and died about 5-30 a m Court was told an analysis of Miss Big Weasel's blood, taken at the hospital shortly after the accident, indicated she had a blood alcohol level of 26 per cent Dr Walker said a blood alcohol reading this high ELLIOTT And GLENDINNING, JARRETT CO.

Court was told Thursday just before Miss Big Weasel was found lying on the road a motorist had to swerve to miss a person walking in the middle of the highway Chief Judge Turcotte said the piece of evidence that was "most conclusive" and "most damaging" to Mr Holtz in- volved pieces of glass found in the vicinity of the accident that matched glass from Mr Holtz's bioken headlight. Vincent Gudmundson from the RCMP crime detection laboratory in Edmonton told the court that in much the same way a jigsaw puzzle is put together he matched glass found at the scene of the acci- dent with glass taken from the headlight of the car Mr. Holtz was driving.
