Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta The Uthbrulge Herald VOL. LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1974 20 CENTS 86 Pages Prisoner swap accord signed AUDIT TO SHOW HOW MANY MORE EGGS SPOILED OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Egg Marketing Agency has all its available inspectors and accountants working on an audit of the millions of eggs it has in storage, spokesman James Fisher said today. Until the survey is com- pleted in about three weeks. he said in an interview, it would be difficult to say ex- actly how many surplus eggs are in storage or how many of those might be spoiled. "They've been told to do it as quickly and efficiently as possible but there are hun- dreds of thousands of dozens of eggs in boxes. they've been inspected and regraded, only after that can I come back and Chou has relapse By JOHN BURNS Special to the Herald PEKING Chinese of- ficials have told a U.S. congressional delegation that Premier Chou En-lai is back in hospital for the second time in as many months, apparent- ly having suffered a relapse in his recovery from a heart ailment. Senator William Fulbright. leader of the seven-member delegation told newsmen here that the premier's return to hospital for Choirs failure to receive the delegation the first time since the beginning of rapproachement between the two countries three years ago that the premier has not met visiting congressmen. The officials said that the 76-year-old head of govern- ment is not receiving any guests for the time being, in- dicating that his condition may be worse than it was in July when he met Senator Henry Jackson in a hospital reception iwm. tell you what the current, up-to-date situation is." The agency, set up by the in- dustry to bring order to egg marketing, has come under fire in the last couple ot weeks for allowing eggs to spoil in storage. Nine million eggs in three Quebec warehouses were de- stroyed late last month after being in improper storage for four to six months. Subse- quent reports have put the total wastage at about 15 million eggs so far this summer. Mr. Fisher denied the agency had blamed the wastage on overproduction in Ontario. Also, he said, he could not confirm there would be a meeting in Toronto Monday of the Ontario Egg and Fowl Producers Marketing Board, which might impose an ad- ditional levy of two cents a dozen on Ontario eggs to cover the agency's penalties on over-production.

"Who the hell cares. I'm going to do it anyway." He vows that if he makes it he will get down on his knees and thank God. If he doesn't. Knievei said: "II really makes no difference because I'm just going to get somewhere quicker where >ou re going some day and I'll wait for you." Knievel walks with a slight limp from all the broken bones he has suffered as a result of accidents during his career as a motorcycle slant- man In an article about Knievel recently. Business Week magazine said that at least 15 business corporations expect to make at least million each on products and en- dorsements based on Knievel and the Snake River Canyon jump The products cover just about anything that could possibly be associated with a from scale- models to decorative decals. Live-television broadcasts of the event will not be per- mitted so that the jump's promoters can sell tickets at an average of each to closed-circuit television broadcasts. Promoter Bob Arum says about I 8 million seats for the closed-circuit broadcasts have been sold in the United States and Canada. Additional merchandising revenues should bring the total gross intake to about million. More than 50.000 persons, paying each, are expected to turn up at the canyon site. Knievel sees this jump as the climax of his career and he is spending great quantities of money on food, drink and entertainment for those who have come to watch. "These people aren't here to see me says Knievel. "They want to see me defy death and live. 1 am not a stunt man. I am an explorer, a man who searches into the unknown." Sewage irrigation proposed to city A sewage irrigation system costing is being mooted by a Taber consulting engineer as a solution to the city's industrial sewage woes. The system, proposed by B N. Madsen. consulting engineer and planner, would drain industrial sewage six miles north of the city in line with 43rd Street Wastewater would flow to a screening and grease separating plant and into settling and storage lagoons, from which it would be sprinkled onto nearby land to grow crops. The site is near the proposed site for the new City Packers site and east of the proposed Highway 5 extension to Picture Butte, Mr. Masden says in his report which will go to city council Monday. The town of Taber has a similar disposal system handling gallons per day, Mr. Masden says. Such a system, he adds, would result in operating savings at the city's existing sewage treatment plant, holding the domestic sewer rate to a reasonable increase. The lagoons, he says, will give off an odor at times, but it's felt it will not be worse than that created by packing plants and feedlots. Leftists pledge arson, killing BUENOS AIRES (AP) The left-wing Montonero guerrillas have declared open war on the government of Argentine President Isabel Peron, promising arson, assassinations, sabotage and bombings. Mario Finnenich, the 26- earrld leader of guerrillas, told a clandestine news conference Friday that and (ward About town A Raymond wag asking Mayor Robert Graham if the f3% million seen necessary to pave town roads, build sidewalks, curbs, and gutters, and water lines included two tanks of fuel for the town road grader Grant Perry getting a little wet when fishing acrobatic style at the Oldman River. the terrorist campaign has already begun with the murder of two policemen, the blowing up of a French own- ed auto salesroom, the kid- napping of a steel-mill ex- ecutive and a raid on a police station. As Firmemch spoke, the "War Communi- que Nu. 1 was also read to reporters in other Argentine cities. The statement was also signed by the main Peronist youth organization and its ad- juncts. The leftists accused Mrs. Peron. widow of former presi- dent Juan Peron, of right-wing sympathies and of "harboring imperialism and the oligarchy." They called upon Mrs. Peron to free political prisoners: restore freedom of expression: lift bans on reforms, on mass dem- onstrations and on the national labor movement: and abolish Peron's "social pact" system of wage and price controls Pre-launch test Knievel waves as big day approaches Well-wishers cheer Mrs. Evel TWIN FALLS, Idaho
