General Farm Supplies Coutts Hithway-Box 1202-Phone 32S-1141 Trudeau tight-lipped about appoinlmeiilRumors flyiiiji «ver AIIm‘i*Iíi señale vacancy By PAUL JACKSON Henld Ottawt Bureiu OTTAWA - Prime Minister Pierre Eliott Trudeau’s office is staying tightlipped concerning runnors that the vacant Alberta seat in the Senate is about to be filled. Alberta has six seats in the lOZ-seat “upper chamber”, but one has been vacant since James Gladstone of Lethbridge resigned way back in March, 1971. In recent days rumors have been circulating in the caucus of Alberta MPs that Mr. Trudeau is about to fill that vacancy. “You asked me if an announcement was imminent. To that I must reply no. About next week or next month I can't say,” said an official in Mr. Trudeau’s office. However, Peace River MP Ged Baldwin ended one rumor when he denied absolutely that he had been offered the seat. “I know that when I resigned as Progressive Conservative House Leader some people thought I was headed for the Senate, but it just wasn’t true,” said the veteran Parliamentarian and Queen’s Counsel lawyer. What’s more Mr. Baldwin, a top man In the Alberta caucus, said he couldn’t accept an immediate Senate appointment even if it was offei^ to him. He had too many commitments within the party for the next year or so. Who then? Right now Alberta’s Senate group is made up of three Lib-erals—Harry Hays of Calgary, Earl Bastings of Palliser Poothills, and J. Harper Prowse of Edmonton, one ‘ independent’’ LJberal, Donald Cameron of Banff, and one Social Credlter, former Alberta premier Ernest Manning of Edmonton West. The Senate generally Is heavily loaded in favor of the Liberals. Out of the l0^seat chamber 74 are occupied by big ‘L‘ Liberals and just 17 by Progressive Conservatives. Others fill in the gaps. “It’s impossible for the Oppositim in the Senate to function now it is so lopsided,” said Mr. Baldwin. "We can’t even man committees there are so few Conservatives.” There’s a feeling on Parliament Hill that Mr. Trudeau would like to do what he did when he appointed Senator Manning—ignore political affiliation, This is especially so since Alberta voters have totally and utterly rejected Liberal candidates in both federal and provincial electiwis. No Liberal has been elected in the last federal or provincial election to either the House of Commons or the provincial legislature. “It would be an insult to the people of Alberta to give the seat to a Liberal. Besides where are the Liberals in Alberta? Where would he find them? He wouldn’t have much of a choice: Old party bagmen, consistently defeated candidates and odds and ends of the party faithful dying on the vine,” said Mr. Baldwin. The latest two persons to be appointed—or called—to the Senate are both Liberals Louis Roblchaud, former New Brunswick premier, and Daniel Riley, former Liberal MP for St. John, N.B, On that basis some said Mr. Trudeau had awiarently gone back to the old system of using the Senate to repay the big supporters of which political party happened to be in power at the time. - However, Mr. Trudeau is likely well aware of the resentment he would create by doing this in Alberta at this moment in time so the announcement could be a big surprise when it finally comps. Another reason Parliament Hill pundits are saying Mr. Trudeau will avoid anx>inting a Liberal is the new resentment in Alberta over the appointment of Mr. Justice Bora Laskin as Chief Justice of Canada—a man who was suddenly leapfrogged to the top Supreme Court of Canada over the man who was actually and traditionally next in tine to get it, Mr. Justice Ronald Martland—an Albertan. Chief Justice Laskin’s ideas are supposed to be close to those of the prime minister on constitutional questions, an ill omen at a time when Ottawa is challenging Alberta over oil resource jurisdiction. “I think that appointment would really prevent Mr. Trudeau calling a Liberal party hack to the Senate," commented Calgary Centre MP Harvie Andre. Mr, Andre said he loo wouldn’t be surprised if Mr. Trudeau does, in fact, move swiftly to fill the Senate vacancy that exists in the Alberta ranks. If a Liberal was appointed, perhaps two likely choices might well be Bud Olson of Medicine Hat, who went down to defeat as agnculture minister in the 1972 federal election, or Calgary oil millionaire Nick Taylor, a twice-defeated Liberal candidate in Calgary Centre and a big and active name in Liberal circles in Western Canada.

OTTAWA (CP) - The food prices review board called for immediate reduction of egg prices and criticized egg producers and marketing boards in a strongly-worded report released Wednesday. The board says egg prices are being maintained at an “artificially” high level aùd rapid price increases in the last year have been considerably in excess of production cost rises. Despite low egg prices in 1971 which resulted in losses to producers, they and egg marketing agencies should not be allowed to hit consumers to make up their loss, the r^rt says. “While it is unfortunate that individual producers sustained financial losses as a result of maintaining uneconomic production levels throughout 1970 and 1971, the board is of the opinion that consumers should not now be expe^ïted, through higher current prices, to relieve the burden created by producer or provincial efforts to extract more favorable positions from a national agency," it concludes. ‘'The decisions which helped create the financial losses in 1970 and 1971 were made by producers, by producer boards and they were implicitly sanctioned by the provinces. Consequently . the burden of recovery should lie with them. “The food prices review board does not acceptas justified the argument that producers now be allowed to catch-up earlier losses by charging prices higher than are warranted Iw legitimate production costs,the report adds. The board, headed by Beryl Plumptre, says poultry a^ egg prices were the fastest rising components in the consumer price index in 1973. Between November, 1972, and November, 1973* egg prices jumped by 54 per cent compared with 17 per cent for all food items. “Egg prices continued their upward movement toward the end of the year in spite of moderation in feed prices which reached their peaks In August and settled at levels about 10 per cent bdow those peaks,” 016 report says. The board, which has come under heavy criticism from Progressive Conservative and NDP politicians for its alleged lack of power, says In the study that eggs are an excellent source of protein used equally by consumers at all levels of society. But this results in the lower-income groups, with a smaller food bucket, being hit harder. The report says the board cannot accept artifidally'in-flated prices for such a good protein source when food costs are high. The study is also critical of exports of eggs to the United States when evidence placed before it indicates that Canadian consumers would increase their consumption of table eggs with lower prices.

The surplus disposal programs have resulted In table eggs going to other markets, thus preventing any sigitifl-cant downward price movement, the board says. While prices of table eggs should be reduced without delay, the report saj^ the board recognizes a need to stabilize and maintain fair returns to fanners,    " It suggests that a pooling of receipts for production similar to that of the wheat board might help to stabilize prices. Deficiency .payments to protect producers against losses could also be considered to give producers price iuppo>ts, the board adds. The Canadian Egg Marketing Agency (CEMA) and provincial boards should be made accountable, perhaps through legislation, to all of the public—including consumers and distributors as well as producers, the report ^^arketing agencies should not have power to import or export eggs either, it adds. PICTURE PROVINCE New Brunswick is known as Canada’s Picture Province. EDMONTON (CP) — The Alberta Breweries Association has applied to the Alberta Liquor Control Board for a “subsUntial” increase in beer prices, Helen Hunley, provtn-cial minister responsible for the board, said today. Miss Hunley said the request was made primarily because of increasea costs of malting barley but no decision has been made. A spokesman for the brewery industry said the price increase is necessary because of changes in Canadian wheat board regulations last year ordering breweries to pay the export price of barley malt. , Breweries previously paid the domestic bariey price plus a premium, or about $1.25 a bushel, but now must pay about 13.40 a bushel. One bushel makes about 25 gallons of beer. Costs of packaging and distribution also have risen, said the spokesman. Miss Hunley said no increase in other liquor prices is contemplated.
