Mr. Lea, in a news release, said the Alberta program is designed to contribute toward reduction of increased feed costs faced by hog and dairy producers. It is expected to increase net returns to hog producers by an average of for every 100 pounds and by an average of for each 100 pounds of milk to dairy producers. Mr. Lea said the program is commendable and will help pork and milk producers "to some extent" but that producers of other livestock and livestock products also are experiencing serious losses. "Unless there is immediate joint federal-provincial action to establish a climate that will enable producers of all commodities to stabilize the various sectors of the primary agricultural industry shortages will occur to the detriment of most consumers."

Canada's salmon fishing regulations almost defy description in their complexity, but, in general, sport fishermen are allowed to take two fish a day with a fly. In Quebec, one can sell a legal rod-and-line salmon, in some other provinces one cannot. The recently completed laws on salmon fishing in Canada fill in two languages a 350-page book. In the last few years, primarily as a result of restrictions on commercial fishing for salmon off portions of the Canadian coast, runs of ENGINEERED HOMES LIMITED salmon increased in many rivers and this was nailed with delight by those who had fought for such regulations. The additional fish and inflated prices were an irresistible combination to many poachers, however, for at to a pound for fresh salmon, a man could make a month's wages in a night's illegal activity with net, spear, gaff, grappling hook or dynamite. In a Feb. 1 address to the Miramichi Salmon Association, the association president, Jack T. H. Fenety, observed: "The sale and purchase of Atlantic salmon is a complex problem. So long as it is legal to commercially fish for salmon in Newfoundland, La: -lor and Nova Scotia, the problem of poaching and that of sale and purchase will continue to flourish in New Brunswick and Quebec. to increase QUEBEC (CP) A spokesman for the Plumbing and Heating Institute of Canada said during the weekend that builders will experience a 10-to-15-per-cent increase in the cost of plumbing and heating materials, as well as delays in deliveries, ranging from a few weeks to six months. The spokesman told a news conference the higher prices and delays are due to shortages of raw materials, particularly oil derivatives.

Do you want to pay less income tax for 1973? Of course you do! Then why not take a few moments to drop in and talk about Registered Retirement Savings Plans. Here's how they work. Upder the present income tax regulations you are entitled to set aside a tax deferrable amount for your retirement years. This amount is 20% of your earned income up to maximum of for people who already participate in a com- pany pension plan and up to for self-employed people. These tax deferrals, together with any income and capital gains they earn, don't become taxable until you withdraw them; and if you wait until you retire, chances are your tax rate will be lower than it is now. So if you defer on income tax to- day you'll build a nest egg for tomorrow. We can help you chart your R.R.S.P. program. Don't let this opportunity slip by. Your plan must be registered before the end of February to qualify for your 1973 tax deferral. Drop in and see us soon. ROYALBANK serving Alberta ;
