Saturday, December 28, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 23 Uncle Ben: beer industry crudest, dirtiest in Canada VANCOUVER (CP) Un- cle Ben, who earned his living driving a tractor at the age of 14, has made a fortune of million or so in what he calls "the crudest, most dis- criminatory, dirtiest in- dustry" in Canada. "I'd like to switch to pulp and paper because it's so clean compared with the beer said Ben Ginter. "There are more laws broken and more graft in the brewing industry than any other I know, unless it's the Mafia." For the moment, the pulp and paper magnates can rest easily. The bearded 240-pound proprietor of Uncle Ben's In- dustries Ltd. continues to de- vote 16 hours a day to the con- tinuing battle with Canada's three major brewers for his share of the Western Canada market. And occasionally he in- dulges himself by crying into his British Columbia beer: "The latest thing here is, they won't let us sell our beer at hotels because the the big short on supplies. "So instead of letting us, a home-based industry, supply the demand, they accumulate our beer in warehouses and won't let it go to the public so the big eastern outfits don't have to worry about com- petition." HOLDS STRONG VIEWS As a self-made man, he is equally forthright in his views on a number of other sub- jects, particularly when he discusses Canadians who ex- pect the world's riches to be handed to them on a silver platter: "Man always works best un- der pressure. Look back at your history. As far back as you can see, it seems that wars brought out the best in us. Now we're getting fat and lazy and nobody is cultivated or trained or schooled politicians espe- know how to sur- vive during peacetime. "Here you have politicians, people who couldn't make a go of running a private business, and they're running the biggest business in the coun- It doesn't make sense." If he could make one contri- bution in his lifetime, said Un- cle Ben, he would like to fight for the youth of today and tomorrow who are subjected to the things that don't make sense. TRAINING NEEDED "The things we are doing are so backward. We allow kids of 15 to quit school, un- educated and untrained. A kid like that isn't mature enough to handle it. The unions give him big money and he gets the idea that because of union security he can't be fired and you've ruined him. "If governments and busi- ness had any real feeling for kids today, they'd make it compulsory that if a kid quits school at 15 or so he would take another two "years of some kind of training. Give them some choice but have the decision on training made by some kind of panel and bas- ed on aptitude. "Then you wouldn't have young people off on the wrong foot, hooligans, hippies, thieves, getting criminal records when they're kids and spoiling their futures." All people are born equal and are equal after death, he said. "But in between, each has his own abilities, his own lim- its. There shouldn't be dis- crimination because an indi- vidual can't be an airline pilot or an industrialist. "Things would be pretty rough if we all had the same ambition." Uncle Ben, the brew-master and empire builder managed to make his way to the top. But he still sees more to be done. "The only thing I've feared in life is being a failure in anything I undertake to do. I guess my fear now is that I won't have all the work done before I have to go." Oddities in the news CHICAGO (Reuter) Two Chicago women have accused their former employers of sex discrimination, claiming they were dismissed because they did not wear brassieres. An official of the U.S. gov- ernment's equal employment opportunity commission said Wednesday, the complaints were filed with the commis- sion and were being in- vestigated. He said a 22-year-old woman claimed she lost her job as a machine operator be- cause her employer claimed she presented a health haz- ard. freshman legislators an edge when they take office next month.

In return, Harvard hopes the legislators will do a better job once they get to Washington, a spokesman said. SOISSONS, France (Reuter) A fireman from eastern France claimed Wednesday to have broken the world pipesmoking endurance record after keeping alight 1.6 ounces of tobacco for 18 hours and 19 minutes. Organizers of a champion puffing contest here said that the previous record was held by a Frenchman who kept 1.6 ounces going for 16 hours. CAMBRIDGE, Mass.

"Licks them right there in the back of the post office when (rural mail carrier Jerry) Tucker holds them out to him. Before we had Rex, Tucker had to lick his own stamps." To Hornbeak's 300 resi- dents, the dog is a celebrity. He has been licking stamps behind the counter for two years. "We ought to put him on the said Short, whose post office is about 100 miles north of Memphis. "He's the afternoon attraction. They (customers) can see him right through the side of the counter."
