2 THI tETHMIDGI HERAID Saturday, July 11, 1970 Agnew Answers Charge NEW YORK (AP) Vice- President Spiro T. Agnew of- fered his rebuttal Saturday to a charge that because of his ac- tions and attitudes the Nixon administration is splitting the United States. In a bylined column on the ed- itorial page of the New York Times, Agnew writes: "More and more frequently, the charge is being made that, because of the actions and atti- tudes of the vice-president, the Nixon administration is 'divid- ing the country." "Is it possible for a country of over free individuals to be united on the issues of our time? Obviously not. Progress in our governmental system grows out of the clash of parti- san positions." The political process in a de- m o c r a c y, the vice-president says, lends itself to attacking an opponent's policies which "of course" is by dividing, we conquer apathy." Drawing a distinction between "the kind of division that embit- ters and negates, and the divi- sion that encourages intelligent Agnew says: "A house divided against it- self cannot stand, but a house that can agree to divide on ideas and issues stands secure and healthy."

Phone 328-5548 Calgary Edmonton Grande Prairie Lethbridge Red Deer Medicine Hat Vancouver Montreal Summer Flu Bugs Seen In Barbecued Chickens OTTAWA (CP) Two years after federal inspectors exposed food-poisoning hazards, the same conditions were found un- corrected in retail outlets, in- cluding chflin stores, selling barbecusd chickens. This is clear from the current issue of the Canadian Journal of Public Health which publishes a scientific report on 52 retail out- lets in the national capital area by a team of food scientists. They found the same kind of hazardous food handling that a similar group discovered two years ago in a survey of outlets in Vancouver1, Winnipeg, To- ronto, Montreal and Halifax. Publication of the first survey in public health and other scien- tific journals and in lay-lan- guags version in grocery trade magazines apparently had little effect in correcting the hazard- ous practices. The teams warned in both studies that the barbecued chickens were being exposed to contamination by salmonella, staphylococcus and clostridium perfringens organisms. Tire Company Disputes Charges WASHINGTON (AP) The federal trade commission has accused Fires tone Tire and Rubber Co. of making deceptive claims as to the safety and wear of its tires and of falsely advertising price savings that did not exist. Firestone, in a statement re- leased here Friday, disputed the FTC charges and said the firm "expects to demonstrate to the commission that its accusations and assumptions are not well- founded." In a formal complaint, the commission took issue with Firestone advertising its prod- uct as "the safe tire" and said use of the name "Safety Cham- pion" for one line of its tires is misleading and deceptive. The commission also branded as false Firestone's claim that its "super sports wide oval" tires could stop any car 25 per cent quicker under typical road and weather conditions than any other manufacturer's tires of a particular construction. Renewing charges first raised in a proposed complaint issued Dec. 21, the FTC also accused the firm of falsely advertising that its tires were significantly reduced from regular prices. The company said: "Fire- stone has consistently complied with FTC guidelines concerning the advertising of tires at store prices." Jasper Park Areas Closed JASPER (CP) Six areas in Jasper National Park have been closed due to forest fire haz- ard, it was announced Friday. These are the organisms com- monly involved in food poison- ing outbreaks and illnesses sometimes described as "sum- mer flu." One suspicion of the scientists is that the chickens also contain other -organisms that do not cause illness but neutralize the illness-causing bugs in some way. Some cases of food poisoning have been recorded, however. And the surveyers are on record as saying that probably consid- erably more go unreported to the authorities. The Ottawa study was com- pleted last summer in 52 retail outlets which sold barbe- cued chickens weekly. A key factor in both surveys is -temperature. Those abovs 142 degrees Fahrenheit kill any food-poisoning organism within minutes. Jittery Thais Fear War Will Spread BANGKOK (Reuters) The Thai air force is flying round- the-clock patrols along the Thai-Cambodian border amid growing fears that the Indo- china war will spread to Thai- land, military sources in Bang- kok said today. While the chickens seemed al to be cooked at the right tem- perature, the exposure to organ- isms occurred after cooking am under conditions that would per- mit them'to flourish. In the Ottawa area study, the team found that 68.5 per cent o the holding facilities for cooke< chickens were less than 142 de grees "and therefore, consi dered hazardous." PACKING A FACTOR Sources of contamination in- eluded packing in undisinfected trays used to store cold meats storage overnight in refrigera- tion facilities beside raw meats, bare-hand handling in remova from cookeries and in packag- ing and storage. The study says "79 per cenl of all stored chickens had temperatures that would allow the growth of some food-poison- ing bacteria and 93 per cent had temperatures const dered to. be unsafe." In answering a questionnaire, 67.3 per cent of the personnel al the stores "gave replies that in- dicated they were not aware oi the possibility of recontamina- tion." Only 17.3 per cent disinfectsc tools and trays and 38.5 usec the same tools and trays for both raw meat and barbecuec chickens. The food and drug directorate is to distribute in the next three weeks a pamphlet aimed at con- sumer! and titled Barbecue Chickens and Food Safety. Stampede Gate Climbs CALGARY (CP) A crowd of attended the Calgary Stampede Friday, but a few hundred had some free fun on the downtown mall where a western breakfast of bacon, flapjacks and beans was served with music from a country band.
