Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 34 THE LETHBRIDQE Novtmbtr 13, 1974 Alberta group opposes Canada food aid stand B.C. tax freeze said punitive VICTORIA (CP) The provements will be based on By JIM NEAVES EDMONTON (CP) With many Canadians expressing outrage at the actions of the official Canadian delegation at the World Food Conference in Rome, the Alberta Com- mittee of International Agen- cies plans a Nov. 30 post- mortem to discuss the out- come. Jim Crowell, a spokesman for the Committee and a com- munity worker with the Ed- monton Cross-Cultural Learners Centre, said Tues- day the "major follow-up conference" in Edmonton will be attended by Pat Mooney of Ottawa, one of the heads of the Canadian non- governmental group at Rome. He said it is hoped that farm and church organizations, in- dividuals and representatives of the 42 development agen- cies in Alberta will be represented Nearly 100 Albertans have sent telegrams to Rome protesting federal govern- ment actions at the food conference which ends Satur- day. They were protesting, in support of the 14 non- governmental Canadian observers at Rome, against this country's participation in an "export planning group" of grain exporting countries proposed by United States State secretary Henry Kissinger. Mr Crowell, who said the Alberta Committee receives daily reports from Rome, said the Canadian observers feel that such a group would be an international grain cartel. The group says that Canada and the U.S. together control more of the world's exportable grains than the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) control of the world's exportable oil RECEIVE PROTESTS Mr. Crowell said Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan has received 280 protest telegrams so far It was not known how many telegrams had been sent to External Affairs Minister Allan MacEachen to whom most of the telegrams had been sent. "They said that they were disgusted, horrified and out- raged with the Mr Crowell said. The non-governmental team at Rome is made up of representatives of five major Canadian churches and other groups, such as the Canadian Federation of Agriculture. At a policy meeting in Ot- tawa last October prior to the- Rome conference, Mr Crowell said the main thrust of the resolutions was that there is enough food for all. The position was placed before the official delegation. "While population is a world problem, it's only part of it and the main problem is the distribution of the Mr. Crowell said. "We wanted the federal government to take a leadership role, not only in providing aid but in changing the structures that allow malnutrition to exist "International aid can no longer be a convenient way for the Canadian government to get rid of surpluses it's go- ing to require structural changes whereby developing countries can command their needs on the world market."

During second reading of the asssessment amendment act Mr. Curtis read numerous letters from organizations and individuals who complained of tax increases as high as 500 per cent in the last year. If the bill passes, he said, the inequities will be extended into 1975 and possibly "indefinitely." In opening debate Premier Dave Barrett said the bill suspends the operation of a subsection in the act which re- quires land and improvements to be assessed at actual value. The assessment of in- dustrial land and im- Murder suspect appears MEDICINE HAT (CP) Catherine Smith, 21, of Sud- bury, Ont., one of three people charged with the murder of the 17 year old Medicine Hat service station attendant last August, appeared in provincial court Tuesday for a preliminary inquiry into the case.

Exploding one more myth about vodka -V Time to set you straight on the old potato fallacy. Great vodka doesn't come from .spuds, traditionally, it's made from pure grain. And Commissar is one vodka that's as traditional as they come. More so. actually. we use pure northern grain, and then chart oal filtering for extra purity. The difference between plain vodka and great vodka is what goes into it. And Commissar wouldn't dream of going against the grain. Genuine vodka Genuine value 50 per cent of the actual value but the values will be factored downwards to approximate the values contained in the 1974 roll as nearly as possible, the premier said. Mr. Curtis said several small businesses, which paid 1974 taxes based on 50 per cent of the assess value, folded as a result of the increases. The government has failed to recognize the magnitude of the problem, he said, adding there are pieces of property in the province and each must be examined in- dividually. Courts of revision throughout B.C. heard more appeals this year than ever before, he said, and the trend will continue if the legislation passes. Bullfrog business slow By LIONEL TSAI TAIPEI (Reuter) A group of young agricultural and fishery specialists in Taiwan are hard at work im- proving ways of raising bullfrogs to use their skins for shoes, belts, bags and gloves. There are many problems to be solved before bullfrog skin can be mass produced But the Joint Commission on Rural Reconstruction JCRR says its initial experiments have been successful and the bullfrog breeding business has a bright future. Most leather processing fac- tories in Taiwan depend on imported raw materiatepbut because of a marked reduc- tion in cowhide productiori in foreign countries, the JCRR is actively studying how to help bullfrog farmers use the skins to fill in the gaps. The JCRR introduced two species of bullfrogs into Taiwan from the United States and Japan 20 years ago for breeding. Li, who heads a team of young specialists in the pro- ject, said that through a series of experiments he has succeeded in feeding the bullfrongs with snails instead of live earthworms, greatly reducing the cost. There are some 300 small scale bullfrog cultivators in Taiwan, but because of lack of scientific knowledge, capital and proper marketing they have failed to expand their business, Li said. The largest bullfrog weighs only one kilogram 2.2 pounds while the majority average only half that weight. Li said the JCRR will help the Taiwan Bullfrog Cultiva- tion Association, which was set up recently, and the China Bullfrog Cultivation centre to improve the cultivation of bullfrogs and bullfrog meat in the local market. The bullfrog centre has already begun to supply fresh meat to the Taichung area.

Simon said the U.S. needs only to allow its economic system real freedom to avoid surrender "to a small band of blackmailers." In a speech Tuesday to the American Petroleum In- stitute. Simon said the answer to Arab oil pricing is energy conservation and increased domestic production Forecasting an eventual lowering of petroleum prices, Simon said Arab countries cannot remain aloof from the dangers of social unrest and political instability their policies have created around the world "1 believe economic and political realities will even- tually force oil prices to come he said "Oil diplomacy is par- ticularly delicate, and there may even be some further ef- forts to increase prices, but, over the long run, the question is no longer whether oil prices will come down but when they will come down j Pre-lnventory FURNITURE SALE Merchandise on Sale Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November and 16.
