R. 0. (Dick) McGachie, a member of Search Interna- tional Trade Manage ment Ltd. of Calgary, told 120 guests attending the opening of Agri-Analysis in the city that Canada's farmers must get out from under the mono- polistic selling conditions controlled by the Canadian wheat board. Mr. McGachie, a noted in- ternational market ing ex- pert, pointed to sales reports published by the federal gov- ernment which show huge sales of good quality wheat to Russia for per bush- el, to China for per bushel and to North Korea for per bushel. Yet at the same time sales to Nigeria, a relatively poor country, amounted to per bushel and to the Uni- ted Kingdom, one of Can- ada's oldest customers, for ?2.35 per bushel. At the same time, the world wheat price was in the range of to per bushel, said Mr. McGachie. This means the Canadian wheat board was selling Ca- nadian wheat to Russia for less than the world mar- ket price. Certified Dental Mechanic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LABH MIDICAL DENTAL BLDG.

"But who couldn't make lots of sales at those low he said. Mr. McGachie said the wheat board never reveals the selling price for any shipment of grain leaving this country. He said there are likely two reasons the board is afraid it would be the laugh- ing stock of the world or else it is afraid Canadians wouldn't like the idea of giv- ing all those gifts away to the rest of the world. He pointed to an expe- rience by his own firm. He had a ready market for a cash sale of tons of Canadian wheat for the Pakistan-India market. The wheat board refused to sell his company the neces- sary wheat. In order to attempt to fill the sales order, the company bid higher than the current world market price for some Grade B wheat in South Africa and still lost the bid. The wheat eventually sold for per bushel to anoth- er country. This proves that there is a real demand for wheat throughout the world, he said. He said such actions by the wheat board are further complicated by reports that Russia has been reselling Ca- nadian wheat to other east bloc countries at the world market price, making a per bushel profit. Mr. McGachie said Can- farmers must be able to operate under a more flex ible system in order for them to take advantage of export markets for all types' of crops as they open up. "It is time Canada's farm- ers stopped being employees of a he said. "It is time the farmers became the employer." BERGMAN'S FLOOR COVERINGS Custom Installations Ph. 328-0372 2716 12 Ave. S.

Horner stresses nutrition Agri Analysis, Canada's most modern soil and feed testing laboratory, was offi- cially opened Thursday with a tour by Alberta Agriculture Minister Dr. Hugh Horner. Dr. Horner said people in Canada must become more conscious of the nutritional vale of food, something Lethbridge's only soil and feed testing facility can help accomplish. He said the nutrition in food for human consumption is directly related to what is Shriners to parade downtown Saturday WEB LOMAS AKROYD'S PLUMBING, HEATING AND GASFITTING 24-HOUR SERVICE WORK New Installations Phone 328-2106 Special rates for Sr. A large parade featuring 12 bands, several motor and horse patrols and a number of marching and clown units will be part of the Shrine Ceremonial to be held in Lethbridge this weekend.

He pointed to a study done in the Peace River area in Northern Alberta which showed that the chief cause of death of animals was mal- nutrition. A soil and feed testing centre would be able to help stop that type of problem.

Here for the annual con- vention of the Alberta Dental Association, Neil Crawford said many segments of the public have expressed a con- cern about getting dental care for their children, but the government must first concern itself about the es- calating cost of providing present health services to the public. He says government health service costs are increasing at a rate faster than any other government service. When the government has the present medical costs un- der control then it can con- sider tha next vital need of government services in Al- berta. He thinks it's necessary for the government and den- tists to take a look at the overall cost of dental treat-' ment and care in the prov- ince. Dentistry is one of the highest costs left for the in- dividual to bear on his own without government assis- tance, Mr. Crawford said. Departm e n t s responsible for health services all across Canada are trying to deter- mine ways of providing the same standard of medical services to the public at less cost to the taxpayer, he claimed. Mr. Crawford put the onus on Alberta's dentists to ini- tiate a dental service scheme that won't rise in cost to the average patient as fast as it has in the past few years. Ronald G. Dickson, pres- ident of the Alberta Dental Association, told The Herald Thursday it doesn't do any good to complain of rising dental costs if there are no government and individual contributions made toward preventive dental care. He says dentists are con- cerned about rising costs of all services and materials, including dentistry. "In an effort to do some- thing about slowing the rate of increase in dental costs to the individual, the associa- tion has been supporting the concept of providing extend- ed dental treatment services to children under a govern- ment program." The Alberta Dental Asso- ciation submission to the PHARMACY FACTS FROM O. C. STUBBS Amphetamines are drugs used as stimulants which are com- monly known by their slang names of "speed" cr "pep These drugs can produce irritabil- i t y, headaches, decrease the ability to concen- trate, dizziness, and agitation. A large percentage of dieting pills _________ contain an am- phetamine while also contain- ing a counteractive sedative to reduce stimulation caused by the amphetamine. Many of these pills are produced in time release capsules which can continue the drug's effect for as long as eight hours. Drinking alcohol while taking amphetamines is actively- dangerous. Amphetamine brand names include Dexedrine and Senzedrine while amphetamine Barbiturate pills include the names Dexamyl and Bamadex.

Sundays and Holidays u Boon to p.m. government in 1971 recom- mended a dental care pro- gram that would begin with provincial wide dental care for one-year-olds and grad- ually expand over a six year period to include services for the ages one to seven. Mr. Crawford said the gov- ernment is still not ready to move on "a program as com- prehensive and of as great a public expense" as the one recommended by the ADA. Dr. Dickson claims the most effective method of controlling the rising dentist- ry costs is to support preven- tive dental programs. The association is limited in funds, manpower, and mo- bility making it impossible for it to carry out a full- scale preventive dental edu- cation program, he said. He says the association has suggested the govern- ment operate the educational program, but has had diffi- culty selling the government on preventive education be- cause it is difficult to prove the effectiveness of such a program. Dr. Dickson also claims the public must become more aware of preventing the pre- ventable disease of tooth de- cay. Communities must take the responsibility of accept- ing the most effective and least expensive method of preventive dental care flu- oridation, he said. Dr. Dickson says extensive scientific research has proven fluoridation is harm- less in the human body, but people still insist on making it a social political argu- ment. The association would like to see the government make fluoridation mandatory where possible. The conventions of the ADA and the Alberta Dental Nurses and Assistants Asso- ciation ends today.
