Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 17, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID - Saturday, February 17, 1973 Budget given cautious eye By IRVING C. WHYNOT CP Business Editor TORONTO (CP) - The Canadian business comtmtnity looks to next Monday's federal budget with a hopeful but cautious eye. The biggest hope of business and industry is that the government will confirm measures announced in the May, 1972, budget but never passed by Parliament. That budget promised corporation tax cuts and a fast writeoff for tax purposes for purchases of equipment to be used in manufacturing and processing goods in Canada. These measures were hailed with pleasure by business spokesmen at the time. But nine months later they are still waiting for these measures to be confirmed. The Canadian Manufacturers' Association says it looks for an expansionary budget. It notes speculation of increases in pensions and personal income tax cuts. "Political considerations apart, the justification for an expansionary budget of this kind is that it would help unem- ployment by stimulating consumer spending, and that federal revenues are looking very good indeed at the end of this first year under the new tax system. "All this Is valid enough, but there are two all-important provisos and they are as vital to the interests of the country as a whole as they are to manufacturing industry." These two provisions, the association said, were the corporate tax reduction and fas budget. "Economic necessity and moral obligation alike require that Parliament give effect to these proposals without further delay. They are the minimum required to keep our manufacturing industries competitive- with all that means for jobs."

Change handling of grain slowly 'BAKER, LOVICK LIMITED^ APPOINTMENT R. B. Ranson The appointment of R. B Ranson as Vice - President and Manager of the Calgary office has been announced by E. C. Daniher, President of Baker, Lovick Limited. Mr. Ranson joined the national advertising agency as a senior Account Executive in 1961, bringing to the company his diversified background of experience in industrial photography, direct selling, media production and sales management, and sales promotion. Prior to his new appointment he was Vice-President and Assistant Manager, Calgary. V_> EDMONTON (CP) - Canada's aging gradn-haindling system needs to be modernized and consolidated but it needs to be done slovvtty, grain company president George Heffle-finger of Winnipeg said this week. Mr. Hefflefinger, president of National Grain Ltd. and National Agri-Services Ltd., was addressing a service club meeting. He said the efficiency of the grain handling system could easily be improved if it was treated as a simple industrial problem. "But agriculture is more than an industry. It is a way of life for many and changes made too rapidly in the name of efficiency will create problems in the rural social community, possibly more serious than the economic problems they're meant to solve. He said the Canada Grains Council is considering three alternatives to the existing handling program. These include systems using 100 large inland terminals, 256 satellite elevators delivering to 22 terminals by truck and 389 high-speed concrete elevators for primary delivery. DRAWBACKS But, he said, there are drawbacks to all three proposals, a more likely solution probably would incorporate facets of all three. "Over the very long period of time, it may be possible to move from the 4,500 elevators at some 1,800 prairie communities that we have today to a system of 1,600 elevators serving'400 communities. "The policy for change wll have to consider compensation to certain producers who are faced With a longer truck haul." Mr. Hefflefinger said the crucial change is that the 175,-000 individual farmers must be given an economic environment in which they can prosper. The point of any grain-handling program must be to keep to a minimum the total marketing costs. REGULAR CATTLE SALE EVERY i MONDAY! AT 11:00 A.M.

CALGARY (CP) - The new beef grading system might eventually lead to an all beef sold on a carcass-grading system, Jack Horner, Progressive Conservative MP for Crowfoot, said this week. Mr. Horner told the annual meeting of the Canadian Welsh Black Cattle Society, there may be a move to establish a complete rail-grading system like the one for hogs - a system that may become compulsory. "We cattle men should pay strict attention to what governments are doing to the beef industry." Buying competition is reduced if producers don't insure cattle prices are determined prior to shipment to the packers, he said. Mr. Horner urged cattlemen to look for ways of cutting production costs so that beef prices won't go too high and make consumer switch to other meats or synthetic meat.
