Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, November 2, 1974 Grits yield on beef, housing OTTAWA (CP) Sustained opposition pressure culminated Friday in an- nouncements of government action on two and the troubled beef situation. Urban Affairs Minister Barney Danson said the government will provide grants to first-time buyers of now. moderately-priced houses. This was a Liberal election promise and the op- position has been asking that it be kept. Magruder 'sacrifice WASHINGTON (AP) Jeb Stuart Magruder has testified that even as he participated in the early stages of the Water- gate cover-up, he knew that senior Nixon re-election com- mittee officials were planning to sacrifice him to save them- selves. Magruder said that in the summer of 1972 John Mitchell and others were manoeuvring to have him take the blame for Watergate. Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan committed himself to an investigation of the entire beef industry. He said a report on beef by the food prices review board, released Friday, contained no recommendations despite a lengthy inquiry. The Commons also resumed debate Friday on a proposed Petroleum Administration Act. Both Progressive Con- servative and New Democrat spokesmen agreed the bill needs revisions, but while the NDP contended oil companies are making too much money, the Conservatives maintained the industry is overtaxed. Eldon Woolliams (PC-Cal- gary North) said federal tax policies are taking more money from the industry than ever before. But T. C. Douglas The Islands) said the govern- ment had to pay out million in less than a year to subsidize foreign oil imported to the eastern provinces. Yet oil company profits rose by from 50 to 100 per cent in the same period. "I have a feeling that Cana- dians are being ripped off by the oil the NDP energy critic said. "During the crisis everyone is making some sacrifices, but not the oil companies." market boss blocks food check Ford predicts cool economy PORTLAND. Ore. (AP) President Ford says he -ex pects the United State economy to cool off thL winter, but he warned that deficit spending to meet an economic downturn could br- ing on a doubling of the infla- tion rate by 1976. As he prepared to swing into his final day of campaigning for Tuesday's national elec- tions. Ford was described Fri- day night by White House press secretary Ron Nessen as "very tired." The president, who began a three day. six state cam- paign tour Thursday, was inak'ing appearances today in Salt Lake City. Grand Junc- tion. Colo., and Wichita. Kan. Twice during the day Ford was greeted by knots of hecklers, many angered by his pardoning of former president Richard Nixon, whom he visited Friday in a Long Beach. Calif., hospital. Mr. Nixon was alert and showed "great strength." President Forcl said after a Beth Johnson Says 'i is 2500 I U o! vit- feoor. set 3! 3700 I.U There a-e cases more is reeled obvious source e' A 'or srnail chil- dren :s whcie rrulk. and both older adults would do well to acceDt milk as a source of trus "utnent !r rare 3 rray "ol have 3 sources bv surprise visit to Memorial Hospital to see the former president. However Ford added: "It was obvious to me that he had been very, very ill." The former president, his face drawn and his hair mussed, listened intently Fri- day as Ford gave him an eight minute briefing on foreign affairs. The president did most of the talking, discussing State Secretary Henry Kissinger's visits to India. Pakistan, Afghanistan and the Soviet Union. Ford, in California to raise money and votes for Republican candidates, said he did not care if anyone thought the hospital visit might have adverse impact on Republican campaigns for elections next Tuesday. "I'm doing it because he's sick at the hospital. Mrs. Nix- on said it would help and doc- tors said it would help so I'm going to do it." VANCOUVER (CPi A food price check being carried out by Consumer and Cor- porate Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet was temporarily dis- rupted Friday by a Safeway store manager who tried to block news photographers covering the event. Mr. Ouellet. who was in Vancouver on a "meet the consumers" visit and to show his concern over inflation, ex- pressed surprise at the in- cident, which he witnessed Ottawa held responsible EDMONTON (CP) The federal government should assume some responsibility for the increase in Alberta's milk prices. Bob Dowling. provincial consumer affairs minister, said Friday. He was asked ir. the legislature by George Ho Lem (SC Calgary McCain if the province could expect "sub- stantial assistance" from the federal government in keep- ing milk prices down. "I would suggest the federal government has responsibility since it was their subsidy and it's they who are taking it off." said Mr Dowling. referring to the five cent milk producers" subsidy which is gradually being withdrawn. B.C. wants court rule on sea bed VICTORIA The British Columbia government wants the B.C. court of appeal to rule on whether the province or the federal government owns the sea bed under the straits around Van- couver Island. An order in council from the provincial government refers the question of ownership of the Straits of -Juan DC Fuca. Georgia. John- stone and Queen Charlotte to the court. Mel Smith, provincial direc- tor of constitutional law. said Friday the province's case refers to a 1967 Supreme Court of Canada decision that land and resources on the bottom of the ocean arc own- ed by the federal government The B.C. covemmenl. sup- ported by seven other provinces, argued before a panel of seven judges that the sea bed should come under provincial jurisdiction.

Mr If the court ;r: favnr of the federal government, he the reasons r.idnmcnt will have to h" before the pro-, in 'o Court "f from a distance of only a few yards. He said the manager should not have been disturbed by the presence of news cameras, adding. ''I suppose if he has nothing to hide he should not be mad." The clash occurred midway through Mr. Ouellet's 25 minute tour of the store when manager Ed Rigby grabbed the lenses of cameras operated by CBC-TV and CTV photographers, in an attempt to black out the filming. CBC reporter Bob Gillingham warned Mr. Rigby to leave the cameras alone but when Mr. Rigby persisted. Mr. Gillingham gripped the manager's wrist and forced him back. CBC photographer Dave Looy and CTV photographer Don Timbrell kept their cameras going throughout the incident. Photographers and reporters in the party con- tinued their coverage of Mr. Ouellet's visit without further hindrance, although Mr. Rigfay repeated several times that news cameras were banned from Safeway stores by company policy. When Mr. Ouellet arrived at the store, accompanied by Liberal MP Simma Holt of Vancouver Kingsway and the news teams, he was approach- ed by assistant store manager Mike McGuire. Mr. McGuire said such a tour could go ahead but said he would check with his superiors He went to his of- fice and made a phone call. The tour proceeded until Mr. Rigby appeared. Earlier. Mr. Ouellet made a similar tour of Woodward's downtown food floor without incident, accompanied by the same group of news gatherers. He said his price checks were of such basic items as milk, cheese, bread, eggs and meat. He plans to analyse the prices later in comparison with similar checks made in Ottawa. Toronto. Montreal and other major cities. During his visit Mr. Ouellet also promised that tough penalties will be legislated excess profiteering and price gouging, even to the point where company ex- ecutives could be sentenced to jail terms. He said the government is so concerned about huge in- creases in sugar prices that, it r-r.nsidering whether to set up a hoard of its own to act as sole importer of sugar into Canada. Canada produces only about 20 per cent of its sugar consumption. "I'm going back to Ottawa convinced that the food prices review board has to be con- tinued and I think that the same Kind of supermarket surveys that have been done in Ottawa may help lower prices here." Mr. Ouellet said. He said the Ottawa surveys. published by the food prices review board, lowered the cost of essential commodities there bv 10 oer cent. Conflict review supported EDMONTON (CP) Provincial legislation should be amended to provide broader interpretation of laws governing conflict of interest among municipal elected of- ficials, the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association agreed Friday. A resolution was approved during the second day of the AUMA annual convention after the town of Fort McMurray submitted a suggestion that the Municipal Government Act be changed so no direct or indirect pecuniary interest would be declared in cases where a council member dealt with business involving a company involved in the mortgage on his principal residence. An Edmonton resolution favoring mandatory dis- closure of holdings ard business interests of aldermen and senior municipal officials did not receive passage. The Fort McMurray resolu- tion asked that the Municipal Government Act be altered so a councillor could vote on a matter involving the company which employs him if the question was for the com- munity benefit and the coun- cillor had no direct financial interest. The resolution said strict interpretation of Tcims governing conflict oi interest could be a major problem in one industry communities such as Fort McMurray. where employees nf inn major company almost always serve or, municipal councils.

Montreal fire talks puff out MONTREAL (CP) A fire department spokesman said today a number of tires, most of them in abandoned buildings, burned during the night as the city's firemen continued their il- legal strike. He said supervisory per- sonnel and suburban fire departments fought the blazes. Five fires broke out in a twelve-block area of the city's east-end, but the spokesman said there was no definite pat- tern because five other fires occurred in other parts of the city. Police said riot squad mem: bers were sent to some of the fires to protect supervisory personnel who were fighting the outbreaks while groups of striking firemen milled about. Meanwhile, negotiations be- tween the city and the striking firemen failed to produce agreement, each side blaming the other for the impasse. Medals for Pueblo crew WASHINGTON
