If, as the children's story goes, the three little kittens went to bed without supper for losing their mittens, It boggles the mind to guess how many Fleetwdod-Baw-den pupils went to bed supperless this winter. Not necessary, says city chief News control locument criticized By WARREN CARAGATA Herald Staff Writer Local reaction to a document prepared by the Canadian Association of Broadcasters and the Association of Chiefs of Police of Canada that would give police control over coverage of police and crime news has been, without exception, adverse. "1 don't believe police should have censorship power over anything," Lethbridge Police Chief Ralph Michelson said Friday. He said that police and the media have "a good working agreement" in Lethbridge, based on an honor system. "The honor system is much better than legislation," he said. The document calls for "day to day advance planning" as a basis for police-media co-operation, and cedes to police the "right to make the decision on release of news for publication bceamse of investigative and legal requirements." George Brown, manager of CJCO Radio, which belongs to the CAB, said he has no objec tions to restrictions on news coverage in times of crisis, but would oppose their application in normal circumstances.

Environment Minister Bill Yurko Friday gave no indication when a federal-provincial cost-sharing agreement will be reached. Replying to a written question posed last year by Gordon Taylor (SC-Drumheller), Mr. Yurko said the federal government is not prepared to release correspondence between the two governments concerning irrigation discussions. However, when an agreement is reached the matter nay bs reooceddered, bs said. A ivixTCty libers! govecz-ment in Ottawa and transfer of the federal portfolio for regional economic expansion from Jean Marchand to Don Jamie-son is likely to cause delays in the bi-level irrigation talks, Premier Lougheed said last year.

"I. can't see any self-respecting publisher agreeing with the report," said Cleo Mowers, publisher of the Lethbridge Herald. "We can't have the police telling us what we can and can't publish. This report infringes on the freedom of the press," he said. Bill McOann, president of the Lethbridge Press Club, said police should not have the right to suppress news, adding that media-police co-operation is vital. "I would not want to see this become law," said Harold Brown, manager of CHEC Radio. "It would be another freedom being given up." In Edmonton, Samuel Friedman, Alberta's deputy attorney-general, said that reports about the guidelines sounded "very, very strange." "I wonder if some one hasn't garbled it." The report "sounds like wartime censorship." Speeder chased up to 144) mph A 20-year-old Taber man was fined $150 in provincial court Friday after he pleaded guilty to speeding -up to 140 miles per hour. The court was told that after chasing Lawrence Craddock for about 10 miles, a roadblock was finally used to stop him. Craddock, who was eastbound on Highway 3 between Cranford and Taber, was clocked in excess of 100 mph going tihrough Barnwell, where the speed limit is 40 mph. He told the court that throughout the chase, his speedometer read 80 mph, to which Provincial Judge L. W. Hudson replied "you'd better get a mew speedometer." "Nobody should be driving if he can't tell the difference between 80 and oyer 100 mph, even without a speedometer," Provincial Judge Hudson said. Craddock's licence was suspended for three weeks. ! Egg wholesaling changes prices Price fluctuations for eggs in Lethbridge is a result of uncontrolled marketing at the wholesale level, according to a member of the Alberta Egg and Fowl Marketing Board. Dick Clemis of Purple Springs, also an egg producer, said the price paid to producers is set by the marketing board so each producer gets the same price for each grade of egg sold. He said producers usually sell directly to a wholesaler "and the price set by the wholesaler to the retailer is his business." He said the price paid to producers has been maintained at a stable level for several months. "With the drastic increase in the production costs, there will no doubt have to be an increase in the price to producers," he said. "In the past six months, the cost to produce a dozen eggs has increased eight cents while the return to the producer has increased only three cents." He said the price to the producer is set by the board with all aspects of the industry and the consumer in mind. He said it is not the aim of the board to "gouge" the consumer. Mr. Clemis couldn't say when the price for eggs to the producer would be increased. "It's a matter of when the production cost squeeze gets the tightest and when the board considers t h a t the price must be increased." He said the price for eggs isnt' allowed to fluctuate regularly because the board feels it is best for the consumer if a level price is maintained. "We realize we can't increase the price of eggs every time the price of feed goes up," he said. "We have to compete with eggs which could come in from other parts of the country also." He mentioned that national marketing agency which should be established in Canada within three months will help to stabilize the price of eggs. He said it is a supply management system which will take the pressure off the market by assuring a constant supply of eggs. Kainai shuts down for month The Kainai Industries' house manufacturing plaint at Standoff has shut down for 30 days and 35 to 40 employees have been laid off for the duration. A company spokesman said the shutdown was necessary because of winter conditions, the lack of basements on which to place the homes and the stockpile of homes at the plant site. Once the winter conditions improve and basements can be provided more economically the plant will be back on production with an enlarged staff, the spokesman said. VULCAN (Staff) - More than 100 members of the Vulcan District Chamlber of Commerce left a special meeting here Friday pledging to garner support for a motorcade to Edmonton next week. The chamber, in a brief to be submitted to the government Feb. 23, says it is concerned about large corporate farms and land holdings by Hutterites by large United States and Canadian corporations. Vulcan pharmacist and chamber president Cliff Wright predicted the current trend in land sales will finish off the farms, and land holdings by small farmer and will "kill the small communities." Earlier this year Unifarm, an Alberta farm organization, asked the government for legislation governing land use in the province. In its annual brief to the cabinet, Unifarm recommended the establishment of land-use zones based on production potential. It said some limitation should be made on the size of land holdings operated or controlled by any one owner or company and that a moratorium be placed on further land buying by large operations until new laws are passed. The Communal Properties Act, which restricted land purchases by Alberta's 7,200 Hutterites, is due to be repealed March 1. The Hutterites now occupy 579,653 acres of farm land in Alberta or 1.2 per cent of the total. Most of the colonies are concentrated in the prime farm land of Southern Alberta, many of them in the same districts. The Communal Properties Act will be replaced by an advisory committee established to act as a liaison between the sect and the government. The committee will not be able to tell the Hutterites where to locate their colonies but can "suggest" that no new colony be situated within 15 miles of an existing colony and that colonies generally be restricted to eight sections - 5,120 acres. The suggestions stem from a report on communal property which said restrictions on the expansion of Hutterite colonies car. not be justified from the viewpoint that the colonies are economically or socially disadvantageous to the province. It added, however "Large land-holdings should fit in a bar-momous fashion into existing rural facilities. Their location should take into account the Gov't ML A here Monday The Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce provincial affairs task force has made arrangements for members of government to visit Lethbridge to discuss current events in the legislature.
