Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 23, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, 23, 1973 THE LETHBKIDOf HERALD 9 Crow attacks worker Construction worker Rick Sullivan is shown being at- tacked by a crow while working on the roof of Edmon- ton's legislative building. Colored, streamers, a sling- shot and a starting pistol have failed to intimidate the big birds. Poultry people destroy chicks DALLAS, Tex. (AP) Texas poultry growers are destroying baby chicks and eggs because they say they cannot afford to raise broiler chickens under the current United States price freeze. "There's nothing left to do but drown said T.C. Moore, president of Home Foods of Nixon, Tex. Moore said he lost on poultry last week. Broilers cost 45 to 50 cents a pound to raise, and bring only 40 to 41 cents at market, he said. Moore and other Texas poul- trymen say that President Nixon's latest 60-day price freeze on retail food products has left them unable to meet rising feed grain prices. Feed grains, a raw agricultural com- modity, were not covered by the freeze.

Canadian studies done by the committee's own researchers have revealed, for example, that you have to drink more beer, in terms of its absolute al- coholic content, than Canadian whiskey to start feeling its ef- fects on your central nervous system. More specifically, k was re- ported that a typical 150-pound male subject developed a max- imum blood-alcohol reading of slightly more than 0.08 per cent about two hours after drinking four been. Tbo legal limit for driving whilt intoxicated is 0.08 per cent. The same subject took only one and one-quarter hours to reach a maximum blood-alcohol level of 0.10 per cent, also over the legal limit for driving, after drinking four drinks containing in each a one and one-half ounce shot of -whiskey mixed with, three times as much gin- ger ale. The four glasses of beer and the four whiskey drinks both contained the same absolute amount of alcohol. NEW CONCLUSIONS The study goes on to trumpet "new conclusions from old data" that suggest that the countries with the highest rates of cirrhosis of the liver are wine-drinking countries and "beer drinking countries are al- most all at the lower end of the scale." In this instance, the facts pre- sented by the committee hi its own report underline the con- ventional wisdom that it is total consumption, not beverag type, that determines the extent of such harmful effects of over- drinking as liver damage. It just so happens that the top three alcohol-consuming nations are wine drinking nations: France, Italy and Spain. The next three are beer-drinking countries, led by the beer champion, West Germany. It also turns out that the number of deaths from cirrhosis of the liver generally follows this or- der. It should be noted that Can- ada, which already is pre- pita as much wine and spirits dominantly a beer-drinking na- tion, has less liver problems than Luxembourg, a nation with residents who consume per ca- as do Canadians but who no- tably consume more beer. Based mainly on these two pieces of evidence, the Alcohol- ic Beverage Study Committee concludes that governments should encourage Canadians to drink lower-alcohol-conteat bev- erages, namely beer.
