Act change may raise pop prices By JOE MA Herald Staff Wrilcr The Alberta Soft Drink Asso- ciation today accused Environ- ment Minister Bill Yurko of "bad faith" in enacting The Beverage Container Amend- ment Act without further con- sultation with a I5-memher ad- visory committee. "The minister of environment is using The Beverage Contain- er Amendment Act for political advantage and has shown bad faith in dealing with the advi- sory said Frank Murphy of Pepsi-Cola (Canada) Ltd. in Edmonton, ASDA pres- ident.

Mr. Murphy said Mr. Yurko told the Edmonton press on Aug. 1 that the advisory com- mittee could not reach a con- census whereas in fact "the committee has unanimously passed a motion which states that in the best interest of the public and private sectors fur- ther studies should be imple- mented on Kie concept of uni- versal depots and other meth- ods of handling containers."

The new system continues to emphasize the quality aspects of beef which have given Cana- dian beef its worldwide reputa- tion, said Mr. Olson. By taking advantage of extensive scienti- fic research, the new grading standards how include the con- cept of lean meat yield of the carcass. Tabhed the most modern and up-k-date grading system in the world, Mr. Olson said it was a culmination of months of discussions between the Canada department of agriculture and the entire beef industry, includ- ing producers, packers, whole- salers; retailers and consumers. Mr. Olson told 400 government officials and ranchers Canada's beef industry is large and com- plex with all parts facing vary- ing needs. As a show of the co-operation within the industry, all the par- ticipating groups were able to come together to develop a grading system which forms a basic, vital service to the in- dustry and the consumer, he said. Mr. Olson pointed to the spe- cific benefits the different parts of the industry would receive, including the producers who will know how their production relates to the product most in demand. MEET DEMAND "They will be able to adjust their feeding and management practices to meet that he said. Packers will have a more pre- cise method of buying and sel- ing and they will be able to stabltsh a more accurate pric- ng structure for the salf> of beef their customers. Wholesalers, in turn, will be ble to order more precisely to meet their requirements, he aid. "To the consumer, the new will ultimately result in eaner beef with less fat wast- he said. In an Interview following the eremonies, Mr. Olson said the new system is designed so that all aspects of the industry and he consumer will know exactly vhat he is getting, depending an what was ordered.

Library to seek equipment funds "Wanted: wealthy donors prepared to contribute gener- ously toward the purchase of equipment and furnishings for the new Lethbridge Public Li- brary." That's the gist of a soon to be launched campaign by the public library hoard.

EXCEPT SUNDAYS AND LEGAl HOLIDAYS "As I have said, this beet grading system is not going to set the price of any market will do he said. "I can visualize situations or times, for example, when A 2 or A 3 grade will sell for a price higher than A 1 because, ii there is some hotel and restaur- ant trade which wants more marbling in the beef, they will bid more for that product." The differences between the grades is going to be more pre- cise when it gets to the point when one can measure the fat to lean ratio. "A guy sitting be- hind his desk in one of the links of the livestock buying chain, where they order thouands 'of carcasses, will know that what he wants will be delivered. APPRAISAL It also ties in with the beef carcass appraisal system, an- no itnced last January, he said. What happens under that sys- tem, is that a person who is breeding cattle and sells them as. calves or yearling cattle doesn't know how the carcassei turn out. "We provide them with some ear tags and by the time tha animal is finished, an appraisal is done and the information is sent hack to the original breed- he said. "If the breeder Isn't produc- ing the right type of carcass, he can identify it back to the breeding stock and make the ap-, propriate changes." Mr. Olson said he felt there would be no trouble in getting Mrs. Housewife educated to the new system. "What happens to the excess fat in the butcher shop is that it is cut off and thrown he said. "If we can get more ef- ficiency in the system by fin- ishing the cattle to the right level, the consumer is going to get a higher proportion of accep- table fat to lean ratio." He intimated that the new sys- tem should lower some although "I wouldn't like to pre- dict that." Bread, butter issues Hoffman hits the hustings By GREG HcINTYRE Herald Staff Writer Repeating the national New Democratic Party -attack on "corporate welfare bums" and bolstered by the recent NDP ran in British Columbia, Hal Hoffman became the first local candidate Tuesday out on the hustings. At a news conference at his home, Mr. Hoffman said he will be looking to the people in the riding to inform him of local issues. The most important national issues will be "bread and but- ter" matters like taxes and un- eiyployment, he said. He declined to name the most important issue in the Leth- bridge constituency, saying "I'll have a better idea when I get out and talk to the peo- ple more. Politics is not some- thing that springs out of the mind of one person." Mr. Hoffman, 38, an automo- tive and welding instructor at Lclhbridge Community College, said he is currently trying to arrange time off work to cam- paign, "hopefully with pay." He will be less able, he said, than his Liberal and Conserva- tive opponents to arrange his working time around cam- paigning. Conservative candidate Ken Hurlburt, an auction owner, and two contestants for the Lib- eral nomination, John Boras, lawyer, and Andy Russell, rancher, can set their own hours, he said. The only declared Social Credit hopeful so far is house- wife Ruth Landeryou. "The government stands condemned the most for the cold blooded way it went about fighting inflation by in- creasing said Mr. Hoffman. "it is my contention that much of the roots of discontent in the province of Quebec can >e traced in large part to the injustice of the English-speak- ing corporate rip-off that our governments of the past have .oleraled in our economic af- fairs." Mr. Hoffman said he will rely on his ability to field questions in personal encount- ers to carry him through his local campaign. About copies of a cam- paign brochure will be printed by next week and Hoffman AMA opening The Alberta Motor Associa- tion's provincial and local exe- cutives met in Lctiibridge to- day to discuss plans for the official opening of the new AMA building situated next to The Lethbridge Herald. John Rhodes, AMA's Leth- bridgc manager, said before the noon meeting the building will be ready for occupation later this month anci official opening will be some time in October.

Mr. Hoffman said NDP mem- bership in the Lethbridge area is at a record high. To a sug- gestion that Lethbridge is a "safe" Conservative seat, he said many thought the Socreds in B.C. were safe until election results came in giving the NKP there an upset victory.
