Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 14, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta CALGARY (CP) The live- stock exchange marketing sys- em will play an essential .part n any system adopted for cattle production, Gordon lauch, editor of the Calgary livestock Market Journal, said ere. "Even if the industry goes to VICTORY SMILES A jubilant Premier Alex and Mrs. Campbell beam after the premier's Liberal party emerged victorious in the Prince Edward Island election.

Heuther dead, the big question that arises is what his death will mean to contract talks this summer between his United Auto Workers union and car-makers. Already some observers on both sides here say Reuther's death' hi a plane crash has heightened possibilities of a strike. Their reasoning: Both the union and the indus- try had taken tough stances even before the accident, and Gov. William Miffiken had spo- ken of "an anticipated strike in the automobile industry" in an economic report to the Michigan legislature. Industry now fears the man who takes Reuther's place at the bargaining table in mid-July may come there determined to prove himself even tougher than Ms former chief. The union fears, regardless of who is chosen union president after Beuther's funeral Friday, that the industry will lose no time in putting him to the test. NEEDS TIMING And there's fear elsewhere the next man may not have Heuther's sense of timing of Government, Oil Firms To Discuss New Regulations OTTAWA (CP) Oil compa- nies will be consulted about pro- posed new regulations on oil and gas permits in the Cana- dian North, says Northern De- velopment Minister Jean Chre- tien. Replying to Commons 'ques- tions by Eldon Woolliams (PC Mr. Chretien said the new regulations would be announced after the consulta- tions, probably in three or four weeks. The government announced during the weekend that it was freezing an existing order that allows companies to take out secondary leases when they con- vert exploration permits to pro- duction leases. A department spokesman said the order was frozen after de- partmental officials went to Cal- gary to inform the oil industry of the government intention to do so. Royalties in the North are much lower than in the prov- inces and the new order is ex- pected to put them on a scale comparable to those elsewhere in Canada. Oil company officials have protested to Ottawa that the government is making the pro- posed increase in royalties ret- roactive but the department of- west Territories and the Yukon, ficials said no decision has been made along that line. The existing order was made in 1961 and covers more than acres in file North- west Territories and the Yukon. Companies taking out explora- tion permits under the old order had the right to take out leases for production totalling 50 per cent of their exploration hold- ings. They could take out the re- maining 50 per cent if they wished by paying an additional royalty. These so-called second- ary leases wem frozen by the government order. Mr. Woolliams asked in tire Commons whether Ottawa had consulted with officials in the United States since Canadians hold leases in Alaska under the same terms. Mr. Chretien replied that the Canadian regulations wilt be "made.in Canada and for the benefit 'of Canadians." For Summer Fun CORTINA PER MONTH So Little Paid So Much! AVINUlI 4th STRUT, IhK SHUT 1 3rJ AVINUt, UTHIRIDGE, ALHRTA when to give and take, a knack that won the UAW many firsts in industrial union "guaranteed annual for instance. Under the UAW constitution. Secretary-Treasurer E m i' Mazey became acting president, but the man who win head the union until its 1972 convention will be named by the remaining 25 members of the Internationa executive board. Its next sched uled meeting is June 2. The impact of auto industry pacts reach far beyond Genera Motors, Ford, Chrysler and American Motors. The 1, UAW uses them as a pattern in bargaining in scores of auto supplier plants and in the aerospace and agri cultural implement industries. That adds to sideline pres sures on both the companies SALES SAGGING The Big Fon and reported sagging sales and profits the last two quarters. With con tracts expiring next Sept. 14 these three firms come up firs for negotiations. UAW leaders say members have been feeling the pinch o the rising cost of living, along with widespread layoffs. The; have adopted a wide-ranging se of economic demands to over ride inflation. In a similar economic situa- tion in 1958 a strike was avoided. But the union kepi working three months withoul contracts and finally settled for a package worth 28.6 cents hourly over three years. Current contracts, written in 1967, were estimated to be worth an hour in wages am fringe benefits over three years In 1938, when new car sales also were lagging and layoffs widespread, the UAW's strike fund had in it. Today its balance is 'HELL OF A LOT' And in winning recent UAW convention approval of a 15 per-cent wage per cent this year and seven per cent next UAW em- p 1 o y e e s, Reuther told cheering delegates: "We expect to do a hell of a lot better for the guys in the shop." The UAW will be attempting to work upward from a base wage averaging hourly and a package of fringe benefits estimated to be worth hourly. Leonard Woodcock, a UAW vice-president and its GM direc- tor, said if the union didn't do better than 15 per cent "we're cert; inly going to have a strike." Chairman James M. Roche of General Motors, apparently an- ticipating stiff union demands, said earlier this year the indus- try has reached a "crisis of cost" and that "a better bal- ance between productivity and wages will be a key objective in our 1970 negotiations." NOT TRUE The king crab is not a true crab. The Lcthbndgc Herald THIRD SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Thursday, May 14, 1970 PAGES 27 TO 34 Livestock Exchange Marketing System Essential To Industry confined rearing setups where beef emerges at the end of a production line there will have to be a market to establish what tire product is he told a dinner meeting of the Calgary Chamber of Com- merce agriculture bureau at- tended by 31 members of the Montana Chamber of Com- merce agricultural bureau. The Montana group, led by Bill Chiesa, Cascade County agricultural extension agent, is on a three-day tour of Alberta inspecting cattle being im- ported for beef improvement. Mr. Rauch said the beef ani- mal of tomorrow will be youth- ful, tender and tas'iy. LAND TOO VALUABLE Fat-growing tender cattle will be raised in multi-storey buildings operated by push but- ton. Land would be too valu- able for cattle. Animals would be finished Ahvays Guided By Optimism Drapeau Adds Another Miracle MONTREAL (CP) Mayor Jean Drapeau is a dreamer who started his municipal career as crime buster and since has changed the character of Mon- real with successes as a world's fair promoter, subway )uilder, and major league base- ball fan. Tuesday at Amsterdam, he added another "miracle" when won the 1976 summer Olym- Jic games for Canada's largest city. jean Drapeau, who once dreamed of becoming a mis- sionary, has always been guided one basic good and bad pe- riods. He's had plenty of both. He once summed up his phi- losophy for the bilingual me- tropolis this way: 'We have accepted the voca- tion of Montreal to tackle great challenges." THINKS BIG, BUT Almost mystical in Ms sense of mission for. Montreal, Mr. Drapeau, 54, thinks' big, talks big. His milieu is the millions, but he provided an insight into another side of his vision with this bit of economic thinking: "My own definition of pros- perity is expressed in the terms of the speed with which ?1 changes hands. If in one day the same changes hands 100 times, that makes 100 people happy. "Perhaps it comes back to the first spender. If the first keeps hid dollar, there is no happiness and no prosperity." The son of an insurance bro- ker and father of three sons, Mr. Drapeau began his public career in the anti-conscription Bloc Populaire party in the Sec- ond World War. He first became mayor at the age of 38, serving as the city's vice-busting chief magistrate from 1954 to 1957. He lost the next election, but made a come- back in 1962. And in 1966, the last munici- pal election, he received an un- precedented 95 per cent of the vote. The next election is in Oc- tober. Mr. Drapeau hasn't indi- cated whether he'll run. ERA OF CHANGE But since 1966, it has been the Drapeau era of scrapers, Expo '67, the Metro subway, baseball's Expos of the National League. Publisher Quits jNewstlay Post GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (AP) Bill Moyers resigned as publisher of Newsday, after running the largest suburban daily newspaper in the U.S. for more than three years. The daily, winner of numerous awards, was ac- quired recently by the Times- Mirror Co., publisher of the Los Angeles Times. Moyers, 36, one-time press secretary to for- mer president Lyndon B. John- son, did not indicate what his plans are and gave no reason for his resignation. Amid all that, he faced grow- ing a hous- ing shortage, riots, and a police strike last fall. Mr. Drapeau himself has been affected by the violence. His home wac heavily-damaged by a bomb explosion, and his restaurant, L e Vaisseau d'Or, is often a target for angry demonstrators. Now he's got a huge watchdog at home. Mr. Dr'apeau very nearly thi-mv ,jn the towel in a month- !ong "period of reflection" early last year when austerity nearly ended Man and His World, the "son of Expo." But reassured of public con- fidence by letters he re- ceived, he decided to stay on. MAIL CHEQUES EARLY MONTREAL (CP) The nearly CNR pensioners will receive their cheques in time for cashing at the end of May even if there is a postal strike, the railway said here. and slaughtered indoors with- out ever seeing the sunlighi. Tlisy would emerge as cut and bcncd carcasses. 'But it will be necessary to establish the value of the meat. Possibly it may be marketed through present terminal live- stock exchanges where the value of live cattle is esta- blished." Mr. Rauch said he doesn't rgard the future as something to look forward to. Its advent might be delayed if the pro- ducing, marketing, processing and retailing segments of the industry got together for their mutual benefit. The segments were now riding off in all directions "and the cowhide will hit the fan and give us all something nobody wants if we fail to act." Don't Be One To Wind Up In Morgue OTTAWA (CP) At least CO Canadians will be killed on highways and streets during the three-day holiday this weekend, the Canada Safety Council pre- dicted Wednesday. The estimated death toll is based on the council's figures from past Victoria Day week- ends. In 1966 a record 79 people were killed in traffic fatalities. Last year 62 were killed. The fatality count for the weekend starts Friday evening and ends Monday night. TRINITRON the only that really matters. When it comes to color, there's a lot of talk these days about better TV because they're brighter. We'd like to point out that brightness is only half the picture. Sharpness is every bit as important. That's why we developed make the image brighter and sharper. We did it by shooting all our color beams through the centre o.f one big electron one color through each of three small lenses like the others do. Our color beams don't diffuse; they focus sharply. The resulting image is and any other color TV. At any price. In any size. What's more, Trinitron circuitry is all solid state, which should eliminate 70 percent of service calls. Before you buy, turn on Trinitron at your TV dealer's. Compare its performance with other sets in the store and see for yourself why Trinitron Color is the only difference that really matters.
