Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta harvest9 first in centuries RABAT For the first time in 400 years Moroc- cans will harvest their own sugar cane this year. They will revive an ancient tradition going back to the 16th century when a sultan used to barter weight for for Italian marble to build his palaces. Sugar cane will be cut on 800 acres and processed in new factories Moroccans probably hold a record for sugar consumption They eat tons a 66 pounds for each woman and child. Their taste for sugar is a re- rent phenomenon. It began in the 19th century when English merchants introduced tea into Morocco The Moroccans evidently found the tea too bitter because they laced it with sugar Since then it has become the national a syrupy sweet con- coction flavored with fresh mint When Sultan Ahmed el Man- sour el Dehbi traded sugar for the cane was grown in the Soass Valley of south Mo- but apparently not much of it was eaten In recent times sugar con- sumption became a dram on Morocco's foreign exchange resources since it all had to be imported. But since independ- ence in 1956 it has been home- grown in increasing quan- tities. More than tons a year are produced in a dozen mainly from sugar beet. By 1977 output will reach equal to about two-thirds of present con- sumption. Of about tons will come from sugar most grown on irrigation networks in the north instead of in the south as in Sultan Ahmed's time. To encourage cultivation of the government is granting credit to peasants who plant it Tea and sugar have become so important that a govern- ment monopoly has been set up to handle distribu- tion and sales in order to eliminate private speculators who pushed up prices Tea imports from China cost nearly million annual- ly and sugar imports are still around million GENERALLY SPEAKING Rice is such an important A _----Ji _4_A1 _i b WL U1CU9 tlldL 111 nese and the words for nee are synonymous with or Gotcha Arab oil group may lift embargo Constable Don Girling of the regional police force hangs on to one of five deer which escaped from Waterloo Park pen.
