Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, October 30, LETHBRiDOE HERALD Ford's efforts to revive party i fail to slow Democrat's gains WASHINGTON (Reuter) If history repeats the opinion polls say it Ford's hectic round of campaigning for Republican congress.onal can- didates is doomed to failure. Ford, in office less than three months, is campaigning in a score of states without changing long-standing predictions that (his party faces defeat in Tuesday's polls. Political experts believe the odds remain heavily stacked against the Republicans even with his direct intervention aimed at heading off huge gains for the Democrats, who already control Congress with large majorities. "ji his speeches at outdoor rallies add fund-raising breakfasts and dinners, Ford. indicates he believes the polls are correct. He also is trying to defy the tradition that the party in the White House loses congressional seats in a mid- term election not involving the presidency itself, which is the case this year. The party controlling the White House has gained seats only once in more than a cen- tury even when conditions were relatively liormal. Conditions are far from nor- mal this year in the U.S. In- flation, rising unemployment, economic slump and post-Wa- tergate blues are combining to hurt the Republicans. In the last few weeks, Ford has travelled extensively, try- ing to lighten the mood of gloom pervading Republican ranks. State Republican leaders tell reporters travelling with Ford that worry about the economy, Watergate, and the president's controversial pardon of former president Richard Nixon are pointing to heavy losses in the polling. Small crowds have greeted Ford although he is personally well-liked. Horner: egg hassle slowed marketing agencies plan EDMONTON (CP) "The saving grace" of the destruc- tion of 32 million rotten eggs in central Canada is that it may slow down the federal agriculture minister in his plans for marketing agencies, Hugh Horner, Alberta agriculture minister, said Tuesday. "That may well be worth much more than the protein Railways earned .4 billion in '73 EDMONTON (CP) In 1973 Canada's two major railways carried 166.8 million tons of revenue freight in 3.2 "million carloads on which they earned billion, or an average of a ton, David H., Jones of Ottawa, said Tuesday. Mr. Jones, chairman of the Canadian Transport Com- mission's railway transport committee, told the semi- annual meeting of the Canada Grains Council that 78 per cent of the traffic was domestic, 16 per cent was from Canada to the United States and six per cent was moved from the U.S. to Canada. In a "sneak preview" of the committee's commodity flow analyses for 1973, Mr. Jones said the traffic was almost evenly divided between eastern and western Canada with 51 per cent of the tonnage relating to the east and 49 per cent to the west. "Western Canada ships more tonnage to the United States than does eastern Canada, 54 per cent compared with 46 per while eastern Canada receives more from the U.S., 75 per cent compared with 25 per cent. During. 1973, western Canada shipped 14.3 million tons to the U.S. in carloads on which the two ma- jor railways, CP Rail and Canadian National, earned million. Eastern Canada shipped 12.3 million tons in carloads and paid million for the Canadian portion of the hauls. Mr. Jones said that on the 130.3 million tons of cargo moved domestically during 1973 in 2.5 million carloads, the average railway revenue was 1.36 cents a ton-mile and three commodity groups made up 83.4 per cent of the tonnage. Grain was carried at an average of .49 cents a ton- mile, mines products earned .94 cents and manufactured and other products earned 2.38 cents. The largest tonnage volume in the west was mines products at 37 per cent, 35 per cent for grain, 14 per cent for manufactured goods and three per cent for agricultural products. Eastern Canadian traffic was dominated by mines products at 45 per cent with 36 per cent for manufactured products and four per cent for agricultural produce. content that wasn't all that great in the Dr. Horner told the legislature. But the destruction of the eggs, held in warehouses by the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency is "only the tip of the he con- tinued. "Continuing pressures will come now after they try and bury this fiasco, from the central provinces. "The import of what happened under CEMA is that if you allow this kind of legislation (the agricultural products marketing act) federally, it could happen with hogs, cattle or any agricultural product you want to mention." Dr. Horner said discussions with federal officials had in- dicated "they're dictated to by the needs of Ontario and Quebec and will carry out programs only if they will serve those needs." The destruction of the eggs was necessitated by overproduction, said Dr. Horner. Farmers-crushed" to produce in an attempt to increase provincial quotas. But that has not happened in Alberta here farmers are allowed to market their eggs in a "traditional and sometimes innovative he said. "As a matter of fact, while they' were having difficulty getting rid of those eggs, our processing plant which manufacturers egg products was short of the product to process. That's the kind of thing we get into with Balkanization." Tight Olympics security vowed INSTALLATION HUMIDIFIERS QjO 1709-2nd i Phoiw32t-5973 WASHINGTON (CP) Solicitor-General Warren AUmand, here for a meeting with U.S. law enforcement of- ficials, said Tuesday security at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal will be the tightest in the history of the Games. J "We will have stricter border control than they had at he said. "We are going to try to make sure that criminals and terrorists do not get in." At the Munich games in 1972, Arab terrorists killed members of the Israeli team inside the Olympic Village and later at a shoot-out at a nearby airport. AUmand said- Olympic Games security would be in the hands of the RCMP, the Montreal police force and the Quebec Provincial Police "and we can call in the armed forces if necessary." He said Canada has "given notice that there will be a much tighter entry system for the 1976 Games. Such a system may require competitors, team officials, press and tradi- tionally have attended Olym- pics under- sports- creden- go through regular passport and visa procedures. "Security is going to be as tight as we can possibly make it, without it becoming obtru- the said. "We want everybody to eja- joy themselves." His remarks followed by less than a week a statement by Montreal police officials that games security measures were being discussed with "other countries" including the FBI in Washington. AUmand, who said he did not discuss the Olympic security issue with the law en- forcement officials he met here, said his visit to Washington was primarily "to learn from the Americans" how they co-operate in criminal justice on a federal- state level.

Salvation Army envoy George Maley, acting as go between for Mr. Woodward with authorities, said the money could be used as a down payment on a small holding where Mr. Woodward could raise his dogs.
