Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-30,Lethbridge, Alberta Milk output 4to improve in 1974’ OTTAWA (CP) - Milk output in Canada may improve this year after a sharp decline in 1973 but it depends on tbe price dairymen get lor their product, the agricultural outlook conference has been told. Veronica McCormick, a federal agriculture economist, said milk production in Canada declined by 16.9 billion pounds in 1973, down “close to five per cent from 1972 levels.” “This was the sharpest percentage drop from year-earlier levels since Statistics Canada began gathering milk statistics in 192».” Increased production this year will depend on prices at the producer level in relation to the costs of feed, the availability of farm labor and alternative opportunities, particularly for grain and beef production, she said. “Higher costs of energy and a continuing high degree of m-flation in the national economy would also adversely affect milk production.” The 100,000 fluid and industrial milk and cream shippers registered with the Canadian Dairy Commission at the start of 1974 represented a decline of about six per cent from a year earlier. The number of milk cows at June 1. 1973 indicated a decline of about two per cent from a year earlier, but the number of yearling heifers being raised for milk production was up by three per cent. Across the country, milk production was expected to rise in Quebec, Ontario and British Columbia, remain about the same in the Atlantic provinces and Alberta and ‘iikely” decline in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. Cheddar cheese production this year was expected to rise to 200 million pounds or more, “depending on export possibilities.”    , Exports to the Uhited Kingdom may expand if some acceptable agreement on Import levies can be reached with the European Economic Community (EEC) and more exports are anticipated to the United States where there has been a relaxing of import quotas, she said. Miss McCormick said cash receipts from milk and cream sales are expected to reach record levels this year, but most of the increase will be eaten up by higher production costs, providing such trends Begin your year at our year End!

Sten Berg, export committee chairman of the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board, said a forward marketing concept for hogs in his province has been highly successful. “This market is tied to a long-term arrangement which guarantees continuity of supply at a price which reflects grain and concentrate and controls delivery prices on a month-to-month basis according to real cost fluctuations," he told the more than 400 delegates. “The first contracts were sold in May (1973) and our experience has shown that gross profit margins have been maintained just over »36 per hog and have varied month to month a total of only 20 cents per hog." Hog production in North America usually follows a pattern of two years of low production and high prices followed by two years of high production and low prices, the conference was told. Once bog producers determine the volume of their production they can contract their feed requirements and thus bring even more stability to their costs and delivery prices, Mr. Berg said. “The core of the concept is very simple. “Decisions to produce are based on commitments to buy," he said. New high commissioner Sir John Johnston, 55, Is to succeed Sir Peter Hay man as British high commissioner to Canada, the high commission announced Tuesday. Sir John, now high commissioner to Malaysia, has held several posts in London and abroad. Bonaparte’s letters in Ottawa OTTAWA (CP) - Twenty-nihe letters by Napoleon Bonaparte’s confidential secretary on France’s invasion of Russia in 1812 are being deposited in the National Archives of Canada, the archives announced Tuesday They are a gift of Dr. Casimlr G. Stanczykowski, Montreal broadcaster and member of the national consultative committee on mul-ticulturalism. They come from his extensive collection of documents and historic artifacts collected in the last 20 years. The letters, dated between Dec. 31, 1811, and June 17, 1812, were written to the French ambassador in Warsaw, outlining plans for the ill-fated march on Moscow France declared war on Russia-cm June 22,1812, and it was after Napoleon’s retreat from Moscow that his empire crumbled. Dr. Stanczykowski is president and general manager of Chateau Broadcasting Ltd , owners and operators of radio station CFMB. Everyone \passes the buck9 at Sudbury hospital inquest By JOHN LeBLANC SUDBURY, Ont. (CP) -Dr. Ross Bennett, deputy chief coroner for Ontario, suggested Tuesday that interested parties are passing the buck in his inquest into 23 deaths at SuJbury General Hospital last year. “Everyone seems to say, ‘that’s not my responsibility,”’ Dr. Bennett said as spokesmen for various aspects of construction and operation of a new hospital wing continued jockeying over the cause of a mixup In the medical-gas system known to 'have caused one of the deaths. The inquest was in its 12th day with no one so far assuming responsibility for a crossed connection that fed anesthetic nitrous oxide into oxygen outlets tn four rooms of the new wing. The substitution was discovered last September, four months after the rooms began opening progressively, with the death of six-year-old Catherine Dominic. Dr. Bennett’s admonition came during questioning of Edmund B. Wong of Toronto, mechanical engineer of the consultant firm of Reid* Crowther and Partners, which designed the gas system. Mr. Wong, who wrote the specifications, agreed with Dr. Bennett that the purity of the gas coming from an outlet was important and said his specifications laid down that the outcome of the final testing must be “satisfactory.” “If it (purity) is important, why isn’t this in the specifications," the coroner asked. “I don’t see it. “It all depends on the definition of satisfactory which seems to say nothing. Satisfactory to whom?” "Satisfactory to the experts,” Mr Wong replied. “What experts?” Dr Bennett asked, then observing that the parties seemed to be passing up responsibility. “We rely on the gas supplier for gases and to ensure that the right gas comes out of an outlet," the engineer answered This brought into the fray Robert P. Armstrong of Toronto, lawyer for the gas supplier, Canadian Liquid Air Ltd., which is designated in the specifications as the overseeing agency for final tests.

After you’ve loaded the cargo area of a Volvo station wagon (it holds a six foot sofa and two chairs), you forget you have a wagon. Parked, it fits anywhere a Volvo sedan can. They’re both the same length (which is about three feet less than those giant wagons). Driven, it handles as easily as a Volvo sedan because it comes with the same suspension system, the same tight turning circle (equal to a VW Beetle) and the same four-wheel power-assisted disc brakes. Come in and test drive our wagon. You’ll enjoy our sedan. ...............volvo SHORT STOP AUTO LTD. 538 6th St. S., Lethbridge Phont 328*6586 ;
