"Silence breeds she told a poultry industry conference. "In the eyes of the con- sumer, your marketing boards have accomplished one thing and one thing only. That is to send the price up and up." Consumers, she said, are prepared to give the producer a fair return on his investment if they can see the reasons for price increases. She recited consumer com- plaints of cracked eggs with the yolks running into the whites, unnecessarily high prices and accused the in- dustry of producing "a lot of bone and some pretty soft meat without much flavor." The producers responded by Alberta, Farm Products Marketing Council and on the advisory committee to the Alberta Egg Marketing Board who should be informing con- sumers.

Montana water quality issue will be aired HELENA, Mont. (AP) Governor Thomas L. Judge has invited a British Columbia reclamation official to meet with him about a possible Canadian coal mine develop- ment on the north fork of the Flathead River near Glacier National Park. The Montana governor has asked J. D. McDonald, senior reclamation inspector for the province's department of mines and petroleum resources to meet with him Feb. 28. McDonald previously said he was willing to meet with Montana officials to dis- cuss environmental impacts of coal mining. Judge noted several legislators and executive branch officials "have ex- pressed concern over possible effects that coal mining in the Cabin Creek area might have on water quality in the Flathead River" of northwestern Montana. The mine is planned about eight miles north of the border. Some legislators fear acid mine drainage might pollute the north fork, which forms part of Glacier's western boundary. There also is fear possible pollution could extend to Flathead Lake. Two measures currently are before the Montana legislature, both attempting to assure Canadian' energy developments do not degrade air and water along the Flathead and other rivers.
