Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February S, 1975 THE LETHBRIOCE HERALD 17 Rapeseed varieties ban urged MEXICO CITY (CP) A commissioner of the Canadian Grain Commission, F. H. Hetland, called Tuesday for a ban on certain varieties of rapeseed and restrictions on others. Mr Hetland told the annual meeting of the Rapeseed Association of Canada that the two actions seem to be the only reasonable way of controlling the acidity of the oilseed. Erucic acid is an unwanted part of rapeseed used for cooking oil, but rapeseed with acid levels of over 35 per cent is in demand for industrial purposes. Mr. Hetland said licenses for echo, polar and arlo varieties of rapeseed should be withdrawn, because they contain too much acid for human consumption and not enough for industrial use. He also said high-acid varieties, such as target and turret, should be grown only under contract to exporters or processors who will export the oil. Calgarian new boss of airline VANCOUVER (CP) The Province said today Ronald D. Southern, of Calgary, has been elected chairman of Pacific Western Airlines to succeed Bruce C. Samis of Vancouver. The Alberta government bought nearly complete ownership of the Vancouver based regional airline Aug. 1, 1974. Mr. Southern was a director of PWA at the time of the takeover. Three more Alber- tans were designated by the Alberta government to joinj the board, which now stands at five Alberta members, six from British Columbia and one from the Northwest Territories. Mr. Samis and five associates bought control of the airline, in 1961 from K. J. Springer. Mr. Samis im- mediately became chairman. The Alberta government paid more than million to buy the airline. PWA serves B.C., Alberta and the Northwest Territories and runs a triangular service between Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle. In another board change, Alan F. Campney of Van- couver succeeded J. D. Hagar of Victoria as a director, the morning newspaper said. Cattlemen need beef price hike REGINA (CP) The beef industry needs increased con- sumption and higher prices, the president of the Canadian Cattlemen's Association said Tuesday. President Gordon Parke of Kamloops, B.C., said in an interview that cattlemen need feedlot prices of 70 cents a pound to break even, 20 cents more than the current average, and to achieve that retail prices would have to rise to to a pound from the average "This has to happen so peo- ple might as well be Mr. Parke said. He added that the consumer now spends only 18 per cent of take-home pay on food, com- pared with 22 per cent in 1961. Bank branch given okay TAIPEI (CP) The government of Taiwan has approved an application from the Toronto Dominion Bank to set up a branch office in Taipei, official sources said Tuesday.
