Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 13, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednwday, Jun. 13, 1973 THE LETHBRIDOf HIXAID Italian regime quits ROME (Reuter) The Ital- ian government of Prime Minis- ter Giulio Andreotti resigned Tuesday to make way for a stronger coalition grouping the giant Christian Democrat party and the Socialists. Andreotti, who for a year has led a conservative coalition in which his own Christian Demo- crat party was partnered by the Social Democrats and the Lib- erals, will stay on in a care- taker capacity until a new cabi- net is formed. The process may take as long as two weeks if the Christian party that has headed every Italian coalition since the Second World and the Socialists can reach prompt agreement on policies and posts. But if difficulties develop, it could take much longer. An- dreotti's 34th post-war administration- followed a five-month power vacuum. RUMOR EXPECTED BACK The new government is ex- pected to be headed by veteran Christian .Democrat Mariano Rumor, with power effectively being wielded by the "strong man" of the huge Roman Cath- olic party, Amintore Fanfani, as party secretary. Consultations on a new gov- ernment are to begin Thursday. ISLAND VISITED Victoria bland, the third larg- est of the islands in the Cana- dian Arctic Archipelago, was first visited by white men in the 1830s. Fire fury in B.C. Raging forest fire eats up timber in the Monte Creek area, 17 miles east of Kam- loops in central Brtish Columbia. Forestry officials report the fire is under control but is expected to take two weeks to burn itself out. Women continue prison protest ABBOTSFORD, B.C. (GP; A segment of the pentitentiary service is being held captive by two little grey-haired ladies who look like they should be at a church social, rather than re- fusing to budge from a maxi- mum security institution. Arsonists Polly Chernoff, 54, and Mary Astaforoff, 59, mem- bers of the Radical Sons of Freeedom Doukhobor sect, aie ensoonsed at t he Abbotsford Regional Medical Centre, a maximum security institution for mentally ill male penitenti- ary inmates. They have broken their last fast but refuse to take any steps that could lead to parole. Before a visit with them, cen- tre director Chuni Roy asks his nursing director if they are dressed not a casual ques- tion, for on sunny days the two women sunbathe in the court- yard evoking memories of earlier Freedomite demonstra- tions where protestors stripped, often while their homes burned. The two are sole occupants of the pilot treatment building exceept for constant supervision of two matrons. "They have been eating of their own volition since March said Mr. Roy. "They do their own cooking and they eat regular large meals consisting of fresh and frozen vegetables, eggs, cheese, nuts, fresh and dried fruits. "They're gaining weight but they are still seen regularly by our medical officer." Originally sent to Kingston Pentientiary on arson charges, Mrs. Chernoff and Mrs. Asta- foroff and three others began a prolonged hunger strike which necessitated forcefeeding and lengthy stays in the hospital. In an attempt to resolve the problem, the penitentiary ser- vice freed the five in May, 1972, on "indefinite temporary absence for medical reasons" and returned them to their home in the Kootenays.

Nichol, the com- pany's corporate planning di- rector, criticized the govern- ment for talking, rather than acting, about halting rising prices. Efforts to establish such things as a food prices review board were good, but did not go far enough. A special group of government, labor, consumers and grocery-store experts should be set up to develop a systematic approach to produc- tion and distribution of food. Mr. Nichol, like Other in- dustry and government wit- nesses before Mm, maintained that food now is a bargain and has been for some time. There was no evidence of price goug- ing in the food network. But, he added, there are op- portunities of reducing costs through such things as the es- tablishment of one central warehouse for manufacturers of goods. Instead cf getting a number of deliveries from bakery sales- men, milk delivery men and others, stores would be able to get one delivery a day from the central warehouse. CUT COSTS Distributing costs would be cut, as would opportunities for theft which regularly occur be- cause stores have to keep their back doors open to receive de- liveries. At one point, Mr. Nichol ac- cused the committee of "some very self-serving finger point- ing.' a reference to attempts by Mr. Whicher to pin the prob- lem of rising food costs to wage increases. Mr. Nichol agreed that wages rose about 10 per cent in his company last year, compared with only a three-per-cent in- crease in productivity, but said it was more important for com- panies to work out ways better using its labor. STRUGLE TO SURVIVE Loblaw Groceterias, the Ca- nadian arm of Loblaw Com- panies Ltd., has been "involved in a struggle to stay Mr. Nicliol said. Domestic sales in 1972 were compared with million the year before, although return on equity amounted to 2.4 per cent last year, compared with 1.2 per cent in 1971. Mr. Nichol took strong ex- ception to statements by Grace Maclnnis (NDP Vancouver- Kingsway) that food prices are consistantly higher at Loblaw stores. On a food basket, the price between competing stores varied by about 10 cents, he said. Higher food costs now were the result of world shortages and international demand for better food.
