Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 12, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THI IETHBRIDGI HWAID Tundoy, Moy 13, Federal Minister Speaks Tonight Jean Marchand, federal min- ister of regional economic ex- pansion, will be the major speaker tonight at the One Prai- rie Province Enquiry at the Exhibition Pavilion. Participating in a banquet Telephone Surcharge Explained A reduction on the surcharge on some long distance tele- phone calls announced recently by Bell Canada will not effect residents of Alberta. The surcharge was introduced in January on station-to- station calls involving the use of an operator and applied in all areas served by Bell. A spokesman for Alberta Gov- ernment Telephones says the reduction won't make any dif- ference to Albertans because ACT rates have never includ- ed a surcharge for such calls. Rates for calls that are dial- led direct, and operator assist- ed statior.-to-station calls are identical in areas served by ACT. The spokesman noted that the only exceptions are the night owl and Sunday rates, in which cases persons having ac- cess to direct distance dialling must use it or be charged a higher rate. sponsored by the city of Le'h- bridge, Mr. Marchand will be the final evening speaker in the four-day conference. The banquet commences at in the 4-H Building, recon- venes in the pavilion at 7 p.m. for dinner, followed by the cab- inet minister's address.

Former Gty Businessman Dies In Utah On Monday Morris Heber Ellison, presi- dent of the Ellison Milling and Elevator Company Ltd, died Monday at his home in Utah hi his 89th year. Mr. Ellison was born in 1881 at Kaysville, Utah. After at- tending public school in Layton he attended the University of Utah. In 1903 he came to Raymond, where his father was superin- tendent of the Knight Sugar Company and was employed as assistant manager. At this time, the senior Mr. Ellison was engaged in establishing the Raymond Milling Com- pany. In 1905 Morris Ellison mar- ried Margaret Cowley, of Utah, and took up residence in Ray mond.

Beet Pay Unchanged Deficiency payments on Cap ada's 1970 sugar beet crop will remain unchanged from 1968- 69, at a national average of per standard ton de- livered to the processing plant. (250 pounds of sugar.) Following the recent federal announcement, Lalovee Jen- sen, Alberta Sugar Beet Grow> ers president, said, "All of the sugar beet growers in Alberta and Canada are very pleased with Mr. Olson's announce- ment." Due to the formation of the international sugar agreement, in 1968, Mr. Jensen said, sugar prices have been stablized, anc deficiency payments greatly reduced. "We didn't ask for more because increased effici- ency has enabled growers to meet obligations and maintain the industry."

MORRIS H. ELLISON AlVIN HAMILTON Political Roots Run Deep Says Former Minister By MARGARET LUCKHURST Herald Staff Writer "Politics gets into the Alvin Hamilton, former federal minister of agriculture stated n an interview Monday. "I've made it known that I'm run in the nest election if lie party wants me to." Mr. Hamilton, in Lethbridge attending the One Frame Prov- ince Enquiry, was a member of jarliament for Qu'A p p e lie, 3ask. from 1957 until his defeat in 1968. He first served as min- ster cf resources in the Diet'en- baker cabinet, then later agri- culture minister. "I live in Manctick, a little place near he said, "but don't for a minute think I've retired. I'm busier than I was when I was in politics." Mr. Hamilton spends scone of bis time writing articles for newspapers and magazines. "I like to mite on social problems which interest he explain- ed. 'I'm particularly concerned with tlie role of the handicap- ped in o u r society. Ten out of every 100 children born are mentally retarded in some degree, three out of the ten, hopelessly. But nevertheless, so- cial scientists have demonstrat- ed that 73 per cent cf this num- ber can be trained to become gainfully employed in some mi' nor capacity. Think what this means to the family of a retardate who is threatened with (be burden of his care for life. Think what it means economically to society as a whole. And, however re- tarded the individual, he must achieve some sense of satisfac- tion at doing something for him- self." As well as writing part-time, Mr. Hamilton does radio edi- torials several times a week. "These are on currents utes, and don't demand a great deal of time either to write or :o listen to. .1 also rotate with Charles Lynch, Peter Stursberg and Pauline Jewett interpret- ing ths new.-., as we see it, on a radio show.

They only run a couple of min- challenging us." viewpoints from Mr. Hamilton has three other pet projects at present. "I'm trying to establish an International Trading Com- pany.

The theory behind this pro- ject is that these nations do not have efficient methods of sell- ing their own products, nor are the products sufficiently sophis- ticated at present to find ready markets without expertise and know how, Mr. Hamilton ex- plained. "I've -had some interesting talks with China on this he said. "You eeo't talk to Chi- na Dolitically, but in matters cf they are prepared to lis- ten. I know they are very inter- ested in mv plan." Mr. Hamilton stated he wants to see Canada cone out all right the next time they build a pipe-line. "I've always been interested in Canada's natural resources, and I want to see Canadians reap the benefit from them. There will likely be a oipe-line built to the north within the next few years, and I'm plug- ging for a consortium of strict- Iv Canadian companies to mar- ket the resources in the States." Questioned on the prairie wheat situation Mr. Hamilton Said, "I believe have to maintain the farmers their wheat School District Staff To Be Named Tonight Appointments to four posi- tions with Lethbridge School District 51 are to be announced at tonight's meeting of .the pub- lic school board.
