Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Govt. lo improve policing of livestock dealers EDMONTON (CP) Steps nrc being taken to improve po- licing of livestock dealers in the province, Agriculture Minister Hugh Honicr told the Alberta legislature. He said the action follows the case of a Lacombe area live- stock dealer who absconded with a considerable amount ef money. Hie matter was raised Jack Cookson who said during the question period that the case has "caused a serious chain reac- tion." Dr. Horner said an investiga- tion found that a substantial amount of money is involved in most of it from other live- stock dealers, and that few in- dividual farmers had been hurt. He said the whole area of po- licing livestock dealers has been reviewed and the depart- ment has been asked lo set up a meeting with livestock deal- ers. Mr. Horner said the govern- ment will suggest that liveotock dealers take measures to police themselves, possibly through an association, and to provide larger bonds "so that producers in Alberta are not hurt by this kind of activity." Oplonielrists fees proposed iu medicare OTTAWA (CP) The federal government has proposed that services of optometrists be in- cluded in a new cost-sharing formula with the provinces under the national medical in- surance plan, Health Minister John Munro (old the Commons. Fees of optometrists, who ex- amine eyes and prescribe glasses but are not medical doc- tors, are not covered by the medical care plan. Mr. Munro reiterated that the government has been holding discussions with the provinces, "mainly on the subject of the new cost-sharijig formula to re- place the present hospitalization ar.'3 medicare arrangements." "One of the ingredients of this proposal was that in the calcu- lation v.'e would build in the cost of optometric care."

Mr. Horner said there is but an investigation will have to be completed before claims against the fund can be enter- tained. Low egg prices irk producers OTTAWA (CP) Canadian egg producers have com- plained to the 'government about low egg prices and asked that they be paid for evcrj1 laying hen they kill before the end of April. In a statement to federal and provincial agriculture mini- sters, the Canadian Council of Egg Producers said such a slaughter subsidy applying to the first 20 per cent of a pro- ducer's flock "would provide tlie necessary incentive to achieve a very significant re- duction in laying hens and a correction of the over-supply situation." The egg producers also called for a long term na- tional egg marketing policy that would allocate provincial quotas based on 1907-71 produc- tion. An agriculture department spokesman said later there were about 28 million laying hem in Canada, If all pro- ducers were to take maximum advantage of the proposed sub- sidy by killing a fifth of their flocks, the federal government would have to pay out million. Grain firm sale okayed WINNIPEG fCP) A spe- cial shareholders' meeting of Federal Grain Ltd. voted to ap prove sale of the company's grain business to the tliree prai- rie elevator pools.

For mom information Write: BOX 22, LETHBRIDGE HERALD Mighty market slumps By PETER LEICIINITZ Canadian Press Staff Writer A tlirec-montli advance came [o an abrupt end as profit-tak- ing and selling claimed heavy losses in most sectors of major Canadian stock markets this week. The decline, however, took 'ew investors by surprise. Ana- lysts had been predicting a pe- riod of "consolidation" for sev- eral weeks. In their latest report to inves- tors, Merrill Lynch said: "With market progress now more la- bored but still moving ahead in recent sessions, the possibility of a near-term corrective phase is growing." However, market- observers said there is no economic news which would dampen the mar- ket's upward trend over the long-term. At Toronto, the industrial Index, a major indicator of mar- ket direction, fell 2.03 points during (.he week, closing Friday .t 201.CO. Prices at New York ended the wetk with fractional losses in active trading. On the Montreal and Cana- dian stock markets, the compos- ite index fell 2.05 points, closing Friday at 204.57. Combined volume on the two exchanges was 6.38 million shares, compared irith 6.11 mil- lion last week. TRADING MODERATE Trading at Toronto was mod- err.te with a total of 14.99 mil- lion shares changing hands, down from 17.96 million a week earlier.
