Tuesday, Jun. 13, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGI HERAlo _ 17 aids cros By I? 1C SWI1IART Herald Slpff Writer A conflict within (lie Alberta o g Producers Marketing oard, which has developed nlo an apparent power strug- le, should be resolved at a pecial meeting in Red Deer Wednesday at 8 p.m. More than 500 producers and le majority of the board's dir- ctors are expected to attend meeting in the Junici1 Ac- tivities Hall on the Red Deer airgrounds. The bone of contention Is the equested resignation of board hairman Sten Berg and the udden departure of general manager Dr. Bruce Jeff cry and the reasons behind both ac. ions. The board, in a news release, said air. Berg was asked to re- sign in the "interests of and in consideration for future board harmony." The statement added that Dr. Jeffery resigned because "ho felt that he could not function without Mr. Berg as chair- man." That statement, however, was called "nonsense" by e. south- ern Alberta producer who add- ed ho feels there Is some out- side interference from a major farm organization in the opera- tion of the board. The prominent, hog producer from the Lethbridge district said some producers in south- ern Alberta feel there is a per- sonality clash within the board's executive structure. The Herald has learned that a special meeting of the South- ern Alberta Hog Producers As- sociation will be held in Del Bonita tonight at 8 p.m. to sort out much of the controversy. Delegates and Wayne Smith director for the board, in the south, are expected to attend. in Alberta areas Toronto mines, industrials (Supplied By Richardson Securities of Canada) LAST BID OR SALE a.m. Quotes) a.m. vjuotesi fJTiOO Quolei) Appoint new deputy minister EDMONTON (CP) Vic Mc- Cune has been appointed deputy minister of highways, it was announced today by the Alberta government.
