Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, March 23, 1974 Government poor apologist-Clark EDMONTON (CP) Social Credit house leader Bob Clark said Friday the provincial government is "just a darn poor apologist for the Alberta consumer" and has done nothing to reduce food costs. Mr. Clark said the decrease in food prices reported by Bob Dowling, minister of consumer affairs, was created almost entirely by a drop in meat prices. "If you take the decrease lor meat out of there, the results aren't what they indicate at all. Most of that lood basket has gone said Mr. Clark. Fruits and vegetable prices increased almost 10 per cent while products such as soups, jams and sugar were up about 12 per cent and beverages were up 2.5 per cent. Beef dropped 11 per cent and pork five per cent in the 30-day period ending March 8. Mr. Clark said the reduced meat prices reflect a depression in livestock markets. "By mid-summer I think we'll find a tremendous turn around in the marketplace as tar as meat prices are concerned. By August we're going to see beef prices higher than they ever were before."

Freight program extended EDMONTON (CP) Alberta Agriculture Minister Hugh Homer has announced extension of the provincial feed freight assistance program from March 31 to April 30, 1974. The extension necessary "to accommodate requests from farmers who are encountering difficulty in transporting hay and grain as a result of recent heavy said Dr. Hoirner in a prepared statement. "A minimum of for one applicant has been placed on hay under the program while the maximum for grain remains at said Dr Homer. All other terms of the program remain as previously announced, and details are available from district agriculturalists. CANDIES SOLD In 1972, candy manu- facturers sold 963 mil- lion pounds of candy bars valued at more than million. Food prices rise may slow OTTAWA (CP) Consumers can expect a less- rapid rise in food costs this year if weather conditions permit a good harvest, the food prices review board predicted Friday. In its third quarterly report, the agency said the 17-per- cent rise in food costs during the last year is discouraging. But there were "grounds for optimism that, with favorable weather conditions, the inter- national agricultural situation in 1974 will be improved." "Food price trends through the year should well moderate as a result." The board, which has no power to control price in- creases, touched on a number of subjects including farm in- come, international factors in- fluencing food costs and labor costs in the food processing and distribution system. Farm incomes rose 89 per cent last year to an average of but the board said the increase was "a result rather DAVID RIEDIGER FARM AUCTION SALE 6 MilBS North on No. 36 from Vauxhall, 4 Miles West and Mite South Vauxhall, Alberta.

The board added that farm expenses also rose significantly, up 19 per cent to billion between 1972 and 1973. Rising fuel, fertilizer, labor and machinery costs dampened the rise in incomes. BLAMES SHORTAGES The report said many of the food price increases were the result of international short- ages, and anticipated higher production this year should lower prices somewhat.

Wages paid food processing and distribution workers were below those paid in manufacturing industries and had increased only marginally. But the report warned that a "significant inflationary potential exists if wage increases were to seriously exceed productivity advances." "Moderation in the increases of both wages and profits in 1974, reflecting real growth in the economy, will contribute to bringing food price rises into a more acceptable range."

The study, released Friday by Neil Crawford, the department's minister, was conducted by a private Edmonton firm in an attempt to ascertain public attitudes. Its findings will be considered for possible legislative changes. "In general, the illegitimate child in Alberta is still legally and socially disadvantaged because of his birth says the report. "Legislation in Alberta now recognizes the legal relationship between the mother and the illegitimate child, but only recognizes the relationship between the father and the illegitimate child in limited circumstances." Questionnaires from 997 Albertans of varied ages, occupations, religions and locales indicated that the public generally believes "it is the mother and father who are and should be responsible for their actions in conceiving and bearing the illegitimate child, the child should not be stigmatized, discriminated against or treated as a 'non- person' as a consequence." FAMILY LIFE Seventy-six per cent of those polled said eliminating distinctions between legitimate and illegitimate children would not contribute to the breakdown of family life. Eighty-five per cent said discriminating against an illegitimate child would not discourage sexual intercourse between unmarried persons. A majority of the respondents also believed the father and mother of a child born out of wedlock should have the same rights regarding custody and visitation as they would have towards a legitimate child after divorce. If the mother keeps the illegitimate child, 60 per cent agreed "the father should make the same contribution toward the support of his illegitimate child as he would for a legitimate child after divorce." Another 23 per cent favored the father paying full support for the illegitimate child. Asked if respondents "think of children in common-law union families as illegitimate." 63 per cent said "no." The study said Alberta had a 12.8 per cent illegitimacy rate in 1970 compared with the Canadian rate of 9.6 per cent. But Alberta's rate declined to 11.9 per cent in 1971, for which "the liberalized policy on abortion" may be largely responsible. The study recommended that the Individual's Rights Protection Act be amended to prohibit discrimination against a person on the basis of birth status. It also said a procedure should be specified for establishing paternity. Stores told to cut profit LONDON (AP) Britain's price commission ordered big food stores today to cut profits by 10 per cent to curb inflation. The order coincided with an announcement from the employment department that inflation is running at a record annual rate of 13.2 per cent, while earnings show a rise of only 7.9 per cent.
