By ROBERTA HORNIG Washington Star Service WASHINGTON The Uni- ted States Geo'.ogical Survey for ye first time is ready to predict an earthquake, but it doesn't quite know how to break the news to the town in- volved. The place pinpointed is just outside Hollister, Calif., a small fanning community of about 000, less than 100 miles south- east of San Francisco. The intensity predicted is 4.5 on the Richter Scale the standard earthquake measur- ing instrument. This is just be- low t h e "potential danrjer" magnitude but involves, thi government scientists say, a "fairly strong shaking" tha could be felt as far away a San Francisco. The intensity also warrants some precaution ary measures by people iivhi, in the area. The only element the survej not predict is exact Urn ing. It is saying only that th quake will come within the nex several months. "We don't want to alarm any one. We don't want sensation alism.

No. 010121 Alberta food prices brief hailed By TOM MITCHELL OTTAWA (CP) Making -irmers successful is a key step i ensuring stable food prices, te Alberta government told the ommons special committee on ood prices today. In an appearance during hich the delegation was re- eatedly tossed verbal bouquets om all sides for what one MP Called the best presentation to re committee so far, the prov- nce also advocated a watchdog ody to report on food price in- cases, special help for per- -is on low or fixed incomes nd expansion of food exports. Glen Purnell, Alberta's dep- ly agriculture minister, said ffi province rejects price con- sols because it feels they would mil food production and wor- en food shortages that have elped push up prices. Food prices have to be looked t in the context of the entire economy, he said. The real solution for Canada J lo develop firm export mar- ets, instead of using exports as sort of safety valve in times surplus, and to increase food reduction. Solid and continuing lies abroad would help estab- ish a firmer economic base for armors and would tend to hold "omestic prices down. IN'COURAGE GROWTH There has to be recognition hat agriculture is "the back- of the Canadian economy" ind governments must do as, nuch as possible to encourage and development of Ca- nadian production, Mr. Pumel iairj. There had been an exodus ot armers from the land in the WOs as surplus supplies o many products built up am >rices fall. The farm had lo be cept viable and one way woulc Sc to carve out firm expor ireas for Canadian farm prod ucts. Marcel Lessard Jean) said there have been ar ;uments that marketing boards increase food prices. Jim Flem ing West) wonderec whether a marketing hoarc might have kept a better checl on beef prices, which have soared because of a world-wldi shortage in the face of increas ng demand. Mr. Purnell sail his government supports frei enterprise. NOT ESSENTIAL Marketing boards are not es sential to all products, he said They would not be needed fo any products if the country adopted Alberta's view abou ncreasing production and ng down the export markets. Such boards aim at orderly marketing, the deputy minister aid. They do not assure a profit to anyone and assuring a profit was the soundest way to ;uarantee adequate production. "Without a profit you can't assure supply." Fran Cullen of Alberta's com- mission looking at domestic marketing told the committee here has to be some changes in he "institutional behavior" of irms in the food business. Profit was what makes the tick but too often there vas an attitude in the business o create a product or a nevv orm of presentation of a prod- uct and then convince the con- sumer to buy it. Often this was done '.vithout regard to nutri- 'ondl value. "In oilier words, we neeu more honesty." The delegation said its suji- estion for a "food chain in- elligcnce system" could help in his respect. WOULD .INVESTIGATE This would be a body, formed outside the food industry, that would monitor food prices and nvestigate increases. Its find- ngs would be made public after investigation. Mr. Purnell said It would not :ieed the power to order a roll- back in prices if it found an in crease that was unjustified. If the information was made public, the firm involved would have to justify its action their competition and to their consumers." Grace Maclnnis couver Kingsway) asked about help for those on low incomes. Mr. Purnell said the province favors a good look at some form of "negative income tax' that would provide an income floor and yet retain the in- centive to work for those able to do so. This would not do the whole job and probably it should be supplemented with "meals on wheels" delivered to the elderly to ensure they get proper nutri tion and a hot lunch program in schools to do the same for the young. Alberta was ready to join with Ottawa in financing such programs. NOTES EMPHASIS Jack Murla noted the Alberta brief's em phasis on more education for consumers so that they can rec ognize good value. Miss Cullen said the Alberta government is trying to do this n a number of ways. It was vorking on programs that could used in the schools and or- a n i z i n g other instruction ourses'for adults. But the biggest untapped field or giving advice about nutri- ioh. was TV advertisements. Ms was the best way to reach lersons on low incomes who eed the advice most "because hese people don't come out to The Alberta brief said the vatchdog agency could initiate esearch into the whole food chain to increase knowledge, 'oo often, groups such as the pecial committee were work- ng in the dark because they ust don't know enough about low the chain works. In line with Its point about in- creasing farm production the province suggested that the government promote estab- ishment of storage facilities so that a "buffer stock" could be New deputy minister appointed EDMONTON (CP) Dr. W. A. Cochrane, dean of med- icine at the University of Cal- gary, yesterday was appointed deputy minister of health for Alberta.
