"We don't know what the government will do but Beryl Plumptre (head of the review board) promised us earlier this week there would be an he said. He said association representatives talked with Finance Minister John Turner and Otto Lang, minister in charge of the wheat board, and both realize the cattle industry has some real problems. Mr Parke said the ranching and feed lot industry "is in real trouble. Our prices have been in a bad slump for the last six months." "What we can't understand is why these prices haven't been reflected at the consumer end." The B C rancher said the unsettled market stems from political interference in Canada and the United States, the high cost of feed and U.S. beef imported into Canada. The U.S. price freeze started the problem a year ago and was compounded by an inadequate Canadian surtax on beef. "Our feedlot men are losing between and a head and if this continues many will go out of business. If this hap- pens the market will be further upset and consumers as well as ranchers will further suffer. He said the U.S.-Canada trade agreement further complicates the situation. "Last year, for example, there were head of U.S. slaughter steers brought into Canada at prices below our knocked the hell out of our market but did nothing to theirs. That amount of cattle amounts to only a two-day kill in the U.S." Mr ParKe said the associ- ation has recommended to the federal government that the duty on imported cattle be in- creased on U.S. animals after head are imported in a year. Bruce Whyte, general man- ager of the B.C. Livestock Producers Co-operative Association, said since August the rancher has received at least less for his steers but the increase has not been reflected on the rail market. For example, he said, the producer market at St. Paul, Minn., was a hundredweight Thursday, almost the same as at Calgary. Yet roasts were 79 cents a pound to hamburger was 89 cents a pound to a dollar and T-bone and sirloin steaks were from to in the American city compared with roasts from a pound, hamburger from a pound to and T-bone and sirloin from to in B.C. stores, he said. Hussein urges Israel to accept peace offer By BERNARD GWERTZMAN New York Times Service WASHINGTON King Hussein of Jordan said Thursday that the chances for a lasting peace in the Middle East has risen considerably in ONE DAY ONLY! Monday, March 18th FABRIC SALE FABRICS Door Buster Special COTTONS and JERSEYS Mlii nbriu Orif YARD Limited Quantities Zellers County Fair Located in ZvDtrt Shopping Centra on Mayor Mcgrath Drily 930 am to p.m., ThwMtay end Friday a.m. lo 940 pm Tctophom recent months, and he called upon Israel to accept his offer to begin negotiations with Jordan through the United States. In an interview with the New York Times, the Jordanian ruler said, "I believe there could be a real peace in the and "no country in the area can afford to sit and wait." The latter reference was to Israel's reluctance to enter into talks with Jordan now on withdrawal of Israeli forced from the west bank of the Jordan River. The Israelis are concentrating instead on the disengagment talks about to begin with Syria in Washington. Hussein, when asked to comment on the Israeli desire to deal with Jordan as the last of the three Arab states whose territory she seized in 1967, said that "Jordan has done all it could for the establishment of a durable and should not be placed at a disadvantage because of this moderation. This view is charted by many American officials who have urged Israel to take a more forthcoming attitude toward talks with Jordan. The Jordanian monarch, making his annual trip to the United States, also stressed the Jordanian need to modernize its armed forces "to keep up with developments in the area." He said that he was referring not only to Israel's military capability but to that of Jordan's Arab neighbors, Syria and Iraq as well. Some American officials have said that Jordan was amazed during the war at the high-level of sophisticated equipment given by the Soviet Union to Syria. Syria and Jordan have long been at odds, although during last October's war, Jordan's highly rated 40th Armored Brigade fought on the Syria front against Israel. In talks with President Nixon. Kissinger and Defense Secretary James R. Schlesinger this week, the king has reportedly asked the' United States for help in modernizing his forces.
