Beef cattle industry said being destroyed TORONTO (CP) Agriculture Minister William Stewart charged Friday that federal import policies are destroying the Canadian beef cattle industry to the benefit of United States producers. Mr. Stewart, in a long, sharp exchange in the legislature with opposition members, said more than 50 per cent of all cattle killed in Canada is from the US. In Ontario, 86 per cent of the beef used, or killed or sold over the counter, was U.S. beef This was "a positively atrocious situation which can be laid at the doorstep of the federal government and no one else." ATTACKS OTTAWA He attacked Ottawa's reluc- tance to impose an import sur- charge on beef and live beef cattle to protect Canadian producers. It has meant a loss of 20 cents a pound for Canadian cattlemen and has left "feed lots empty from one end of this country to the he said. Mr. Stewart added that he CURRIE'S FINE FOODS EATS Fresh Produce OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK a.m. to p.m. i5l69thAve. s.

This would give interim protection to the Canadian market, reeling under falling prices caused by the glut of cattle in the U.S. Farmers there withheld cat- tle from market during Presi- dent Richard Nixon's price ceiling, but flooded it when the ceiling was lifted Sept. 12. Later, in an interview, Mr. Stewart said supermarkets are profiting from the slump in Canadian beef prices. Prices paid for top slaughter steers have dropped at least 15 cents r. pound in the last mont' but nothing approaching Inat saving has been passed on to the con- sumer, he said "Supermarkets are gaining the benefit of this drop in prices to a very marked degree Latta suit 1 -i I temporarily withdrawn EDMONTON (CP) Lawyers for Keith Latta have withdrawn a suit which claim- ed London Life Insurance Co. failed to pay him as beneficiary in the death of city travel agent Bob Neville. Latta now is serving a life term for the non-capital murder of Mr. Neville in 1971. A spokesman for Macdonald and Sullivan, Calgary lawyers representing Latta, said the statement of claim had been withdrawn for revisions. The spokesman said the revised statement would be filed with the Supreme Court in Calgary within a month. He did not elaborate on the revisions and said the action had been temporarily suspended "for tactical reasons." Latta, serving his sentence at William Head Minimum Security Prison on Vancouver Island, was a law professor at Queen's university in Kingston before his convic- tion. He had been a business partner of Mr Neville in a local travel agency.

Soviet-made weapons captured TEL AVIV (Reuter) Israel has captured intact Soviet-made SAM-6 missile batteries from Egyptian forces on the Suez canal, usually reliable sources said today. The sources said the mobile anti-aircraft batteries, mounted on half-tracks, are among the most sophisticated weapons in the Soviet arsenal. They were captured together wih their radar and control systems. Israel's air force had diffi- culty in meeting their barrages on the first days of the latest war, because of their ability to strike at low- flying planes Their missiles, believed to be the main defence system around Moscow itself, probably are the most impor- tant war booty taken by Israel during the 17-day war. Saturday, October LETHBRIDGE HERALD-11 Alberta told to 'cool it' TORONTO (CP) Energy Minister Darcy McKeough has told the Alberta govern- ment to "cool in the con- stitutional squabble over energy supplies. Ontario has been threaten- ing to contest in the courts Al- berta's moves to control the supply and pricing of energy resources. But Mr. McKeough told the annual dinner of the Institute of Chartered Accountants on Friday: "I have today advised my counterpart in the govern- ment of Alberta that, although I felt the issue must at some time be resolved, surely we could do that other than through the courts...." He said his move followed long discussions with Ontario Premier William Davis and a phone call Thursday night from "an individual whose views I respect, but had not solicited." He did not name the person. Despite Mr. McKeough's previous criticisms of what he has said is the lack of a national energy policy, he acknowledged that federal Energy Minister Donald Mac- donald has "a wide framework to cover and a very complex set of game rules." He said he will "back him up wherever I and added: "today's respon- sibilities of our federal government in this rugged (energy) game are mind- boggling." However, the minister re- peated his call for a national energy policy. "In the matter of domestic energy supply from domestic sources, we are in need of a national and not simply federal resolve. I say again that these terms are sometimes indistinguishable one from the other in Ot- he said. "There is a great difference, however, and I can only have confidence that Mr. Macdonald and his colleagues might recognize that there is a great difference in meaning between a federal and a national solution to any problem." But any unilateral decision imposed on the provinces by Ottawa "is not going to meet the needs of the energy situa- tion he said.
