Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 28, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IFTHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, June 18, Boyle's Column By HAL BOYLE NEW YORK (AP) Tilings a columnist might never know if he didn't open his maii: Going to sleep has become more of a problem with bosses. A study of execu- tives five years ago by the Life Extension Institute found that 90 per cent slept soundly. Pkns bill on crane 'loopholes' CALGARY (CP1 MLA George Ho Lem said today he intends to introduce a private member's hill this fall to close "legaMiiopholes" that allow or- ganized7-crime to enter Alberta. OrgamVed crime is purchas- ing legitimate companies "at price 'way above market value" in an effort to work its way into the province, said Mr. Ho Lem who suggested a screening system, to investigate ownership transfers. His bill would allow the Al- berta Registrar of Companies to prohibit a commercial sale to a recognized crime syndi- cate. Restaurants and sot-vice In- dustries such as hotel, linen sup- ply and garbage disposal are vulnerable to such takeovers, said the Social Credit member from McCall. "They take over a company, set up a monopoly in tlie ser- vice by buying out everyone, then force the businesses they serve lo play by their The proposed bill would give police some teeth in their fight against crime.' "Our law enforcement offic- ers are today compelled to be too polite." But in a recent study only CO.3 reported they had no sleep problem, although only 3.2 per cent saiu 'hey resorted to se- datives. Those having the most trouble getting to sleep were over 50 years old and made less than a year. If you have- a phobic fear of earthquakes, the place for you to hie to is North Dakota. No earthquake has ever been recorded in that American state. You're wrong if you think that all doctors die rich. A recent study found that one out of three physicians at death leaves his widow facing a major financial problem.

CAN'T COME BACK When an Asmat tribesman in New Guinea dies, his an- guished widow immediately throws herself on the ground and rolls in the mud. This is not only to show a proper depth of grief.

(CP) Local 480 of the United Steclworkers of America served strike notice Tuesday on Cominco Ltd. The Cominco workers at Trail, Kimberley and Benson Lake will go on strike on or after July 4 if settlement has not been readied in their con- tract dispute. Negotiations are continuing in Ihe dispute under the media- tion of Peter Dowding of Van- couver, who was called in at the union's equesl. His term expires July 4. The union is asking an In- crease of 44 cents an hour in tlie first year of a two-year con- tract and a 9.5-per-cent increase in the second year. Cominco has offered a pack- age of slightly less than 4.5 per cent in Uie first year and just under five per cent in the sec- ond. Base rates range from S3.40 to The contract expires June 30. Elevator replacement plan described as unrealistic OTTAWA (CP) Proposals! to replace the Prairie1 grain elevators with as few as 20 are unrealistic, the Commons agriculture committee was told today. MPs questioned representa- tives of the Canadian wheat board on an unpublished gov- ernment study that is said to recommend reductions in the number of elevators of which Prairie farmers deliver their grain. Jack Homer said he had been told the study recommends having only 120 el- evators on the Prairies. Board commissioner R. L. Kristjanson said some reports put the figure as low as 20. Chief commissioner G. N. Vogel said such reported figures have done a disservice because they created an unrealistic Im presslpn of the study's propos als. Mr. Krlsljaiison said that as few as 20 elevators could exis and every farmer would be within a moderate distance, o one. But such an arrangemen would ignore the road system and require deliveries aroune the clock. "Thus you could have a silua lion where a farmer is pro- grammed lo deliver a load o: No. 1 Northern at 2 a.m. over a road that doesn't exist" He said a more cfflcienl sys lem with fewer elevators coul be created, but Ihe board dii not know what the optimum number should be.

REVELSTOKE YOUR ONE STOP HOME IMPROVEMENT Open Monday thru Saturday a.m. to p.m. 1602 3rd Ave. S Phono 327-5777 OTTAWA (CP) The ays "are doing a tremendous' moving grain but are still free from criticism, repre- n t a t i ve s of tho Canadian heat board told the Commons gricullure committee today. G. N. Vogel, chief commis- of the board, said: "We both praise and crilicize he railways. Within reasonable mits, they are dong a tremen- ous job. I must say that at mes we wonder at the priori- es they are giving to grainhan- lirtg (and) we are also ritical of their equipment." But he said "a new era" of astly-improved grain move- lent is coming. He also paid tribute to tho railways for their heroic" efforts lo get grain h r o g h snow-clogged Rocky fountain passes last winter. Mr. Vogel said the board still opes to export COO million ushels of grain during the crop fear ending July 31, compared vith the record 706 million lusliels exported during the last :rop year. "The sales are there. It's only i question of whether a few loats come in and clear before July 31." MASSIVE EFFORT Another commisioner, R. L. Cristjanson, said that 664 mil- ion bushels of grain had been hipped out of the country by June 14 and shipments of 20 million bushels a week would be needed to meet the 800-million- 'lushel target. In emphasizing the massive effort needed to move grain Jr. Vogel said the Canadian Pacific Railway alone needs a grain train out of Winnipeg :very four hours, 24 hours a day and seven days a week, just to move grain to the Thunder Bay erjninals. The chief commissioner salt he hopper cars being rought by the federal govern ment for the wheat board, at a cost of million, would do much to improve grain move- ment. Many of the railway-owned boxcars which are carrying jrain are "inefficient old equip- he said. He added Uia .he new hopper cars will no simply replace the railways olt cars, since the railways ha< agreed to maintain the sami numbers of cars in grain serv ice. Liberal Ross Whieher, MP fo: She Ontario constituency o Bryce, called the hoppe cars "a gift by the taxpayers o Canada to the grain farmer o Western prompting William Knight boia) and other Western MPs t interject "to the railways 'GRAIN DOORS' A PltOBLEU Mr. Knight said there wer nine places in his constituencj where boxcars were availabl for grain hut lacked the "grail doors" necessary to load grain Mr. Vogel said that is why th hopper cars will improve eft ciency, since they do not neec grain doors. "This problem of grain doors is always with us. We're contin ually after the railways on it." He said various measures t improve grain handling furthe were being considered, inclut ing snowslide-prevention step and examination of possibl modifications to the Kettle Va] ley route through the Rockies t see whether it would help t ship grain that way. Mr. Vogel said Canada grain-buying customers "hav been remarkably patient" wit Feed grain fees charge rebutted OTTAWA (CP) The tradi- ional complaint of eastern cat- le and hog raisers that the Ca- adian wheat board charges Kem too much for western feed ;rains was rebutted today by he board's chief commissioner, G. N. Vogel. "It is our responsibility to do he best job possible for the western he told the Commons agriculture commit- ee. But it would be short-sighted o squeeze the highest possible irice out of the Eastern Canada narket, which was the board's jiggest market for feed grains. He said the board sets its prices to be "more than com- petitive" with other feeds. On June 2, for example, the whole- sale price of western barley in Montreal was a ton, com- pared with for U.S. corn and for Ontario corn. High prices hurt the board's customers, while low prices brought accusations that they were bankrupting Ontario and Quebec corn producers. Mr. Vogel said negotlalions are under way to set a pricing elivery delays caused by win- cr snowslides, but "they are ery much less patient with us when the delays are caused by as was case two years ago. formula that would be fair lo all parties. The board controls movement of feed grains from the Prairie provinces and from one Prairie province to another, but does not control sales within a prov- ince, such as those directly be- tween a farmer and cattle pro- ducer. Mr. Vogel said the Issue was less of a problem now that west- ern feed mills were paying a premium price to get feed grains directly from farmers. The problem came when sur- pluses of feed grains produced distress prices and western feed buyers could get feed grains more cheaply than the eastern buyers who had to buy through the board. Mr. Vogel said some agency has to control imports of feed grains to guard against other countries which might dump subsidized grain at low prices. The hoard's monopoly In mar- keting feed grains outside the Prairies was beneficial in that it enabled large quantities to be moved and ensured that there would be supplies available for eastern producers. Rapeseed groivers get good rooking OTTAWA (CP) The chief commissioner of the Canadian wheat board and a Saskatche- wan New Democrat agreed today that Pririe rapeseed growers get "a pretty good rooking" from the present sys- tem of shipping and marketing rapeseed. But the chief commissioner, G. N. Vogel, told the Commons agriculture committee little can be done about the silualion un- less the board is given jurisdic- tion over selling rapeseed. The rapeseed was sold by pri- vate companies but the board, through its general supervision of railway grain movemenls, sets quotas for farmers' deliv- eries to grain elevators. The issue was raised by farmer Alf Gleave kaloon-Biggar) who complained of the difference in prices paid for rapeseed at Vancouver and Biggar, Sask. He said he saved his rapeseed until he had enough to fill a boxcar and then arranged to have it shipped lo Vancouver and sold there. That brought him more than if he had delivered it to the local elevator under the quotas system. Mr. Gleave said the ordinary farmer would not be able to take the time to build ur such a quantity and would have to sell at Ihe local elevator. Mr. Vogel said the wheat board tries not to influence market prices through control over rapeseed supply but "it's an extremely delicate situa- tion." He agreed that the price dif- ference is "an administered but said it was admin- istered by the private grain companies, not by the board. Mr. Gleave said the rapeseed producer "gets a pretty good rooking" under he system. "I replied Mr. Vogel. Grain shipment by unit trains unsatisfactory SASKATOON (CP) It is unlikely any more unit trains will be used lo move western grain directly to waiting in port until the system u improved, a spokesman for the Canadian Wheat Board said to- day. He ;said a November, 1971, experiment in liich unit trains took the grain from a Saska- toon terminal right to the ships in Vancouver, bypassing port terminal facilities, showed system was "not a satisfactory concept. right now." The main difficulty lies In co- ordinating the arrival of trains and ships he said. DISTURBS SLUMBER SAN BEBNARDTNO, Calif.
