Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 21, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 38 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID - Wednesday, February 21, 1973 Europe applies brakes to sexual revolution By ALVIN SHUSTER New York Times Service LONDON - To the taped strains of "Stranger in Paradise," Eric and Marie went on stage for their twice-nightly sex performance in the dim nightclub in downtown Stockholm. They were not strangers, and from their expressions they were not in paradise. They were old friends from Denmark, and they were working in Sweden because the authorities in free-wheeling Copenhagen had closed clubs featuring live sex shows. NEW CAMPAIGN The surprising decision in Copenhagen, which has long had a reputation as the capital of permissiveness, is part of a new campaign by the authorities across Europe to put some brakes on the sexual revolution. Tighter reins have become visible not only in Denmark but also in West Germany, Britain, Italy, France and Yugoslavia - where, as they say, "The Porn is Red!" In Sweden the government has announced a parliamentary inquiry that could lead to curbs on live shows. PENDULUM SWINGS Though the European pattern is mixed, countries where the pendulum has been swinging toward more leniency are gen- erally seeing it begin to swing back. The recent trends in Europe are not unlike those in New York and elsewhere in the United States, where a "backlash" among the public has given support to anti-obscenity moves. As in the United States, many European authorities have embarked on intensified campaigns to halt if not turn back the expansion of pornography and sexual exploitation growing out of the "permissive sixties." The reaction in Europe arises in part from fears of criminality and drug peddling, which are often associated with the sex business. This Saturday In Weekend Magazine THE I IT/ Hc>v Ritzy Is It ?

New Noah's Ark may save life in polluted area London Observer BEIRUT - A second Noah's Ark is in the making. When it sails, however, it will not be trying to escape world destruction, but trying to do something to prevent it. With any luck it should contribute towards nursing the sick Mediterranean area and its dying sea. A slight and wiry French-Lebanese conservationist named Jean-Claude le Cavelier is putting together a kind of floating zoo and intends to sail it around the Mediterranean coastline, stopping wherever enough people can be persuaded to come aboard and take a look. M. le Cavelier says he will use the ark to "create a consciousness." He will try to show through his exhibits how all living organisms from the single cell amoeba to grown man arc linked in a' delicately-bal- What' s causing high food prices? TORONTO (CP) - Farmers say they aren't living high off the hog despite the increasing prices for pork, beef, vegetables and fruit. The middlemen and the retailers say they aren't getting rich. During 1972, retail food prices in Canada rose more than 8.5 per cent, more than in any other Western nation except France. Poor weather can be blamed, for part of it. It cut crops of fruit, vegetables and animal feed practically everywhere those things are grown for Canadian consumption. Rich tastes are blamed by some as part of the cause of increased demand for certain goods-and hence higher prices. G. H. Dickson, executive vice-president of Canada Packers Ltd., says consumers are eating three or four per cent more beef every year. He says they buy it because they like it and can afford it. PROTESTS FOR GROWERS Adrien Van Luyk protests on behalf of the farmers in Ontario's Holland Marsh and District Growers Association: "What's puzzling farmers is that we read about people getting 30-per-cent wage increases and they don't expect the price of vegetables to go up a little. The farmers like to live, like the rest of the population." The federal department of agriculture fingered the process- ors, packagers and distributors, in a bulletin issued last September. It said they accounted for 64 per cent of the $2.8 billion increase in farm-food prices since 1961, compared with 36 per cent for farmers. What happens to food from the farm to the table Ted Tregunno gets $160 a ton for the peaches he grows for canning near St. Catharines, Ont. That ton should produce 1,-500 tins of canned peaches. On an industry average, the peach grower gets 7.7 cents for the fruit in a 14-ounce can. Hauling and storage add half a cent, and discard of peaches that don't meet quality standards adds another half cent. The labor in canning costs 4.2 cents a can, the container costs 5.9 cents, sugar 1.7 cents and the overhead of the canning plant is 5.4 cents. That brings the cost up to about 26 cents a can. If the retailer puts a 20-per-cent mark-up on it, the consumer will pay 34 cents. RETURNS SMALL Murray Pearce, a Saskatchewan wheat farmer, gets about three cents for the wheat that goes into a loaf of bread that sells in Toronto for 25 to 37 cents. Casey Bak, a Bradford, Ont., market gardener, gets three cents a pound for carrots that retail at 13 cents a pound. Richard Wambeke of High River, Alta., gets 40 cents a pound for beef on the hoof. It costs about three cents a pound to ship it to the Toronto market. Mr. Wambeke and his brothers, Peter and Lloyd, say they net about $6,000 each every year from their 6,000-acre ranch. They market about 1,200 head of cattle every year. In a typical transaction, Canada Packers Ltd. bought a 1,-050-pound. steer at a Toronto auction for 42 xh cents a pound, a total of $446.25. The carcass, trimmed of hide and waste products, would weigh about 598 pounds. The packers sell and process the hide and a great deal of the rest of the animal for glue, medical products, animal food. The trimmed carcass was sold to a food chain for $436.91, about 73 cents a pound. About 140 pounds of the carcass would be used for ham-burber or stewing beef, the cut trimmed into steaks and roasts. The average price per pound to a consumer would be $1.09. PROFITS LOW Supermarkets say their profits are low-in many cases less than one cent of every dollar of sales. That means, says one, that if you buy $20 worth of groceries and tip the carry out boy 25 cents, the boy is making more profit than the supermarket. G. E. Greber, president of George Weston Ltd., Toronto, says the question of food prices cannot be isolated from the problem of inflation and worldwide commodity shortages. "World shortages exist, and a scarcity factor will have its effect unless there is rationing or artificial allowances are created." . Mr. Greber feels the Ottawa hearings "will show the industry in relatively efficient and no one in the industry is profiteering." "The Canadian consumer is better served than consumers in most other parts of the world." The supermarket's profit markup varies with the merchandise. The lowest is 14 to 15 per cent on canned goods, 18 to 20 per cent on meat and 30 per cent of fresh products. One factor which the average consumer isn't aware of is a federal sales tax of 12 per cent on items such as toilet paper, soap, wax and beauty aids which make up more than 30 per cent of the average supermarket order. Marries pastor LONDON (AP) - Nina Baden Semper, 20-year-old Trinidad born star of a popular British television series, Love Thy Neighbor, married an English clergyman yesterday. The groom is Rev. Murray Grant, 36, curate at St. Mary Magdalene Church, in London's Ens-ton district. anced chain. From this point he will explain how today's use, abuse and wanton distribution of noxious substances is breaking some of the links in the chain and thus endangering ail life itself. SEES NO HOPE As soon as M. le Cavelier has a sufficient number of the sponsors he needs, his teaching expedition will set out from Beirut in Lebanon and voyage in the same part of the world as the Biblical Ark before it came to rest on Mount Ararat. M. le Cavelier sees no hope for the Mediterranean if pollution continues at the present rate, but for all that, he is an optimist. "Pollution," he says, "is caused by a lack of awareness. People must be made to realize the effect on plant and animal life when poisons are sprayed in bulk into the air and swilled into the sea. If you kill off plant life, animal life dies too. And that means us. If the animals in my bio-quari-um can help awaken more people to what they are doing to their world, I'll be happy." The original Ark, designed according to divine specifications, was a custom-built three-storied affair, 300 cubits in length. Its successor, a 100-metre long Second World War landing craft given by the U.S. government, is less grand, but its master is confident he can contain a selection of species of animal, bird and underwater life inside it, as well As the crew, supplies and an ecology - orientated radio and TV station. Clearly, the animals will pose the most difficult space problem, but after  spending the past few years studying the movement patterns of animals in captivity, M. le Cavelier now says he has sufficient information to be able to construct cages small enough for his requirements yet large enough to keep his beasts contented. The ark's menagerie will be arranged according to sophistication of physical development in a sequence which will culminate with the ape. A single mirror will be provided for the last link in the chain "to give everyone a sense of his own proportion." Those species, like the amoeba, which are visible only through a microscope, will be filmed in action and projected onto a screen, but in most cases visitors will be able to get as near as they want to the animals. pre-seasqn . tractor sale /""^ SIMPSONS Sears Save $150 Rugged, field-tested 15-hp lawn and garden tractor Simpsons-Sears super 15 lawn and garden tractor Laboratory and field-tested for quality and dependability, this rugged workhorse can add to your leisure time by getting the job done fast - around the home, farm, or estate.
