B.C. lumber cheaper in Lethbridge than in Cranbrook By JOSEPH MA CALGARY (CP) The Consumer's Association of Canada called on the federal government Tuesday to find out the causes of price differences of consumer goods in various parts of the country. A resolution by the British Columbia delegation said that even with the variance of sales tax and distribution costs, the prices of certain goods in most areas "are higher than seems justified." "We can buy B.C. lumber in the United States and Leth- Cattle industry in trouble says Montanan WASHINGTON (AP) Democratic representative John Melcher of Montana, said Tuesday he has asked the Nixon administration to reinstate quotas on meat imports and to take steps to reopen Canada to shipments of U.S. beef. Melcher said the cattle industry has serious economic troubles with large amounts of beef held unsold in cold storage. He said consumers and stockmen both could be hurt by a liquidation of cattle herds: Melcher. the only verterinarian in Congress, said the department of agriculture should be directed to locate, inspect and certify cattle free of diethystilbesteral, a growth hormone, for export to Canada. He said that while the Space probe hopes dashed CALGARY (CP) The hopes of scientists at four Canadian universities that their television camera would be rocketing to venue aboard a space probe in 1978 have been dashed because the instrument is too heavy. Dr. Clifford Anger of the University of Calgary, co ordinator of the design team, said the camera came close to winning the approval of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration It was one of 90 designs considered and among the last dozen in the running. York University, Sir George Williams and the University of Saskatchewan were the other universities involved in the camera's design. The camera was intended to give a detailed view of the upper atmosphere of Venus and to allow scientists to study the planet's cloud formations. HEAT BIG KILLER Heat takes the lives of about 175 Americans in an average year, but in hot summers the death toll can rise to well over 500. insistence of the Canadian government that imported cattle be free of the chemical residues is understandable, the U.S. agriculture department has been negligent in not qualifying itself to certify meat for export as being free of the substance. "ly could do so in a matter days by offering such a service publicly, checking out and certifying disease free herds and qualifying them for export on the hoof or slaughtered as Canada requires." Melcher said. Melcher said that last year more than one third of all U.S. beef exports went to Canada. In addition, he said the United States sold 185.000 head of cattle to Canada for slaughter.

She said B.C. apples and fish also are sold cheaper else-1. where. Earlier at the 27th annual- meeting of the association, John Helliwell, professor of; economics at University of; British Columbia, reported widespread discrepancies in'' retail prices for bulk propane. At the end of 1973 it was less than 11 cents per gallon inC Alberta, 32 cents in; Vancouver. 59 in Whitehorse and 75 cents in Dawson city. COST STUDY URGED The resolution said the fed- eral department of consumer and corporate affairs should "undertake substantial re- search, at least on a sample basis, into the costs, profit margins and efficiency of the process of distribution of numerous products to remote I areas within Canada." The annual meeting also passed 11 other resolutions I dealing with issues ranging; from proper identification of manufacturers on household I appliances, proper packaging; for all forms of drugs to reduce hazards to children, standardized metric sizes for prepackaged products and; better controls on sale of rifles and shotguns by mail or telephone. One of the past resolutions proposed by Novia Scotia I called on all levels of; government to promote efficient urban public I transportation to curb the use of private automobiles and; thus reduce pollution and save energy. I The manner in which credit; card operators charge their- customers interest was I criticized in a resolution; proposed by the association's consumers services! committee and adopted by; delegates. PRACTICE DECRIED The resolution said! operators of credit cards; promised that no interest- would be charged if the debt" was paid within the specified: number of days, but in; practice "the statement of ac-- count often is received by the! debtor with only a few days: remaining before the expiration of the period of free: credit." It asked the federal and pro-; vincial governments to enact; legislation to ensure that "the- dale of commencement of the! period of free credit coincides. with the day on which the ac- rount is deposited with the post office for delivery to Ihe debtor." The association called on governments to initiate action to end the monopoly control of Bell Canada and British Columbia Telephone over the inter-connections and terminal equipment of their telephone systems.
