CROSS WE TAKE GRAIN IN TRADE ABOVE MARKET PRICES GIVEN AFL In Favor Of White Paper By EIC SWIIIART Herald Staff Writer MEDICINE HAT The 000 member Alberta Federa- tion of Labor has taken a posi- tive stand in favor of the pro- posed changes in the federal government's while paper on taxation, claiming "the govern- ment hasn't gone far enough." E. A. Mitchell, executive rec- ret'ary of. the AFL said in an interview at the AFL confer- ence here that the federation is prepared to go along with the white paper, "putting up with some things not favorable" and hoping for changes in ths fu- ture. "People who make per year stand to have tax sav- ings of and we don't think it is he said. "The middle income group will be hit harder than they should but the increase won' be alarming." Mr. Mitchell said the whit paper should not hurt the av erage worker in Canada, "anc in fact, there will be lax reduc tions for everyone who earn: under per year." He said t'iie AFL has slwaj: supported the Carter Commis sion on tax reform and woult continue to support it. "We see in Canada today one of the bast financed and or ganized lobbies any legislation to he said "The corporate concerns anc people with vested interests are behind the lobby to protect their own position." He said many of the changes proposed in the white paper are similar to the changes suggested in the Carter Com- mission with the same result that the high wage earners are complaining the most.

Mean while telephone and power lines were downed by the torrential rains in the Bow- ness area of Calgary and near- by centres of Okotoks and Black Diamond. Calgary received 3.25 inches of rain in the 24-hour period Saturday, while Lethbridge re- ceived 1.90 still managing to break a 1939 record rainfall for June 13 when 1.38 inches fell. Other points around southern Alberta reported 2.79 inches at Fort Macleod, 2.5 inches at Ta- ber, 4.22 inches at Vulcan and 3.25 inches at Cardston. According to the weather- man, we may not have seen the last of the rain, with Mon- day's forecast being for scatter- ed shower activity perhaps carrying into Tuesday. The high and low temperature for Lethbridge should be 70 and 45. Winds will be light.

Students may use school time to focus on such topics as playwrighting, poetry, history, advertising, and reading. Work may be done in school or wherever students find the right atmosphere for nurturing the creative spark. The class is the beginning of Mr. Haig's dream of a school media centre a kind of re- search area where facilities would be available for any art form.

Chance For Cilisens To Air Views Town Meeting Session At City Council Tonight The council chambers at city hall will be visited by a num- ber" of persons other than coun- cil members lonight. It's town meeting night and council will convene at 7 p.m. to allow time for Lclhbridge citizens to make known their views on civic affairs. No writ- ten submissions in advance are required; persons with ideas on how the city is being run may come and participate in the open discussion. There will also be a dele- gation from the Lethbridge po- lice commission. Under dis- cussion will be the feasibility of establishing a provincial board of police commissioners. Such a board has been rec- ommended in a report pre- pared by Harry Masted, re- tired RCMP assistant commis- sioner. Alderman Jim Ander- son has submitted to council a report critical of ma- jor points contained in the Maxted report. The Henderson Lake golf tiub will also have representa- tion at tonight's meeting. A re- view the club's lease has been undertaken by City Man- ager Tom Ferguson and mem- bers of the club's board are ex- pected to answer questions con- cerning the club's operation. Lethbridge will likely move another step closer to a re- vised law on Sunday sports and entertainment tonight. Up for first, second and third reading is a bylaw allowing Sunday en- tertainment, with the exception of such activities as wrestling and horse and dog racing. Also up for first reading is a bylaw authorizing the borrow- ing of about SI million i'or the new secondary sewage treat- ment plant. Total cost of the project is estimated at 3.5 mil- lion; the remainder of the mon- ey has already been authorized. A submission prepared by the parks and recreation com- mission for the 1973 Canada summer games will be present- ed to council for approval. If council gives it the go ahead, the bid will then be forwarded to the province. If the games are awarded to the city it would mean the construction of several new sports facililies in Lethbridge with federal and provincial fi- nancial aid. Council will also deal with a motion by Aid. Rex Little that a special committee of council be formed to study and review the development policy of the city. And another attempt will be made to save the old No. 2 fire- ball on 13th St. N. Aid. Steve Kotch will present a motion that the city investigate the possibility of raising the neces- sary money to have the hall relocated as an historic site and tourist attraction. Hog Price Drop Temporary Says Federal Farm Minister H. A. (Bud) Olson, federal agriculture minister, says the present increase in hog produc- tion will drop prices only tem- porarily. Speaking at the Alberta Feed- Manufacturers Association con- vention on the weekend in Banff Mr. Olson said the steadily increasing demand on :he North American continent will take up much of the slack. Without abnormally high prices, a mass increase in pro- iuction is unlikely, he said. Japan, an affluent industrial nation of people wilr limited land resources, wants more animal food products, he said. With a per capita consump ion of 16 pounds of pork and "our pounds of beef in Japan, compared with 50 pounds pi )ork and 85 pounds of beef ir Canada, a strong demand should continue for many and volume, especially after i "We could never set up a their experience with the inter- beef board unless the provinces national grains arrangement which came under heavy pres- sure when the supply became too heavy.

Mr. Olson said rising con- sumer meat prices in Europe also make that region a poten- jal market for Canadian pork. The United States seems to have the competitive advan- age in world red meat mar- kets, he said, but with dili- gence Canadians could gain a ;hare of those markets.
