Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, November 13, LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 Informal wife Edmund Van Deusen, a 50-year-old grandfather, divorced after 26 years of marriage, is shown with Elaine Peterson, 35, whom he hired through a news- paper ad to live with him as an informal wife for a month. That was fwo years ago. They're still living together at San Francisco and have written a book. They call it "Contract Cohabitation" after an actual document they signed that spells out the duties of both parties.

Doctors have been faced with choosing from a grpwing variety of pacemakers with only the claims of manufac- turers to guide them, Dr. DasGupta said in an inter- view. It was difficult for doctors to assess the performance of different types, especially with many pacemakers now being designed with wide variances for different applications, he said. The health protection branch has sent out an infor- mation letter to manufac- turers of cardiac pacemakers, outlining tentative regulations and inviting comments from the industry. Dr. DasGupta said at least Canadian patients use pacemakers, and the device is becoming increasingly pop- ular to regulate heart rhythms of patients with heart dis- eases. He said Canada would be the first country to have govern- ment standards for the devices which first came into wide use about 10 years ago.

Canadian hay goes to U.K. on trial basis LONDON (CP) The plight of the British beef market, which led aggrieved farmers to militancy and even violence in recent weeks, has taken a novel twist with the announced importation of hay from Canada on a trial basis. A National union of Farmers (NFU) spokesman said it was believed to be the first time since the end of the Second World War that such imports from Canada became economically feasible. The man behind the idea is Christopher Trower, a forage merchant and president of the British Hay and Straw Mer- chants association, who went to Canada two weeks ago to make arrangements. He will bring in about 50 tons as an experiment. It is understood the Canadian hay will sell here for about a ton. Farmers now are paying up to a ton for locally grown hay with the price still rising compared with about in recent years. Trower was unavailable for comment Tuesday, his office said, but an NFU spokesman said the Canadian hay probably would go to farmers with domestic ponies or beef "blood and would be generally too expensive for or- dinary beef cattle. "Some small amount might go to farmers who are willing to pay nose for a short time in the hope the situ- ation will improve he added. He said the situation is so bad that in some areas there is a waiting period at slaughter houses of up to eight weeks for farmers wanting to get rid of their cattle because they cannot afford to feed them over winter. Unless there is an improvement, he said, there will be a terrible beef shortage in a year or two. The over-all problem arises from the beef glut in Britain and throughout the European Common Market countries. Amid soaring prices, beef is one item that is reasonably cheap for the British housewife. In the last two years the cost of fodder, fertilizer and bank loans has doubled in Bri- tain while the beef farmers' returns have been halved. Bri- tain imported twice as much beef from the Common Market in four weeks last August, for example, as in the whole of last year.

Aside from the fact such cattle are subsidized by the Irish government, British laws forbid on humanitarian grounds the export of British live cattle. The NFU estimates that be- cause of the ban, imposed last July. British farmers have missed the chance to export head of cattle, thus easing the British market situation. British farmers, many of them sad more than angry, now have called off their demonstrations in the hope Agriculture Minister Fred Peart will negotiate a better deal with Common Market partners in meetings next week. As a measure of the emotion generated by the crisis, coroner's jury in Wt-lshpool was told Monday that farmer William Roberts, 57. hanged himself because he was depressed and did not have enough fodder to feed his animals through the winter 24th ANNUAL SVLVANIA 12" PORTABLE PORTABLE TV Solid Slits.
