FOX LETHBRIDGE DENTAL LAB 204 MEDICAL DENTAL BLOG UNIROYAL ZETA Mileage Guaranteed Tires By RIC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer EDMONTON A continued decline in breeding hog numbers will mean reduced production and increased prices for pork products on the retail level, predicts the chairman of the industry marketing board. Dick Page of Didsbury, chairman of the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board, told The Herald this week the price for pork in stores must go up He said if the prices don t increase, producers will quit the industry. He said producers won't continue to sell at a loss as they have done for the past nine months. There has been a significant decrease in hog marketings, dropping to 25.000 animals per week from weekly in the past three months "And producers are still selling he said. Ed Schultz of Edmonton, manager of the marketing board, said the drop started in a four month period in November, 1973, when farmers started a severe cull- ing of old sows, "initially while they were still worth money." Mr Page said there won't be a change until the price for hogs comes into line with barley, the main feed ingredient. With barley selling for S2 50 to per bushel, farmers lose ZETA 40 RADIAL IroncladGuaraniee 3EEE MILES BERGMAN'S Floor Coverings SALES AND INSTALLATIONS By DON BERGMAN Thursday Evening till 9 p.m. PHONE 328-0372 2718 12th South money even when hogs sell for 50 cents per pound liveweight. The hog market in Alberta settled at 52 cents a pound this week when a return of 56 cents a pound is needed to break even, said Mr Page. A new program of es- tablishing six central gather- ing points throughout the province, to be introduced in about one year, is hopefully a solution to some of the marketing problems, said Mr. Page. The delivery points will be established m Lethbridge, Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Vermilion and Grande Prairie Once established, the marketing board will be able to better control the flow of hogs to market. Mr. Page said hogs were offered for sale through the marketing board in two days last week This depress- ed price results from the over supply situation. With the central delivery points, the extra hogs will be held until the market can ab- sorb them at a better price for the producer Interest in export contracts for hogs is still high, said Mr Page, although tariff dis- cussions in Japan, the major buyer, won't be over until the end of October. The marketing board arranged two export contracts at a set price, tied to the fluc- tuating price of feed grains. With the domestic market at 52 cents per pound, producers selling through contract are making per hundredweight for one and for the other PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209 -2nd Ave. S.

Commission rejects plan for office building A request to construct an of- fice building for a retail sales and service outlet for home swimming pools was turned down by the Municipal Plann- ing Commission Wednesday.

The staff room would be redesign- ed for secretarial and ad- ministration space under the proposed renovations. If the renovations are approved by the department, the student capacity of the school will be reduced from 275 to 225 There are now 173 students enrolled in the school The cost of the second proposal for renovations to the St Paul's School is es- timated at The cost to the school board will not be known until the department of education indicates what percentage of the cost it is willing to fund The board approved the proposed renovations to Catholic Central, but not before Trustee Steve Vaselenak severely criticized the province for forcing the separate school system to pay half the cost of renovating its schools to meet the re- quirements of changes in government regulations. During recent fire inspec- tions, it was found that the high school did not meet fire regulations and certain fire hazards existed. The fire inspectors called for more exit doors in the gymnasiums and lecture theatre and replacement of the gymnasium light fixtures. "The gymnasium exits are considered so inadequate that the chief fire marshall has restricted maximum occupant capacity for St. Francis wing gym at 255 persons and St Joseph's wing gym at an administration report to the trustees stated. Mr Vaselenak pointed out that the school complied with the fire regulations when constructed. "The school could be perfectly good and then two or three years later they change the regulations" and it is call- ed a fire hazard, he charged. If the government changes the regulations, it should pay the bill for the renovations, he maintained Neil Reilander, secretary treasurer, informed trustees that the province pays half the cost of the renovations when regulations have been forced on schools. The total cost of correcting the deficiencies in the high school to meet the fire regulations is estimated to be just under Certified Mechanic CLIFF BLACK, BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL BLD6.
