Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, September 12, 1973 Regina counters Ottawa feed grains program REGINA (CP) The Saskatchewan government is going to create a feed grains marketing commission to counter the new federal feed grains policy. Agriculture Minister Jack Messer an- nounced Tuesday. The commission would regulate, among others, the federal agriculture products board, which under the new federal policy has been em- powered to buy feed grains. If the federal board is going to purchase in Saskatchewan, Mr Messer told a news conference, it will have to be at prices set by the provincial commission. The same applied to Eastern Canadian livestock producers, who may later be authorized under the federal policy to buy in the Prairies instead of having to go through the Canadian STILL SELLING FOR LESS STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 1314 3rd Streets.

The commission would give regulated purchasers two choices to pay a floor price set by the commission or to pay at least the initial Cana- dian wheat board price, plus later interim and final wheat board payments. In a prepared statement, Mr. Messer said the Saskatchewan action was made necessary because the federal policy is directly op- posed to the principle of orderly marketing GOAL SURPASSED TORONTO (CP) The CBC has announced that this vear it has exceeded its goal ol 70 per cent Canadian con- tent in Knglish and French television network schedules Teachers may retire at 55 SHOP US FOR BETTER FOOD BUYS!

Mediator proposal accepted VANCOUVER (CP) CP Air and the International Association of Machinists (IAM) have accepted a proposal by Federal Labor Minister John Munro to provide a mediator in their contract dispute.

EDMONTON (CP) Bylaws are being put into effect enabling teachers to retire on full pension at age 55, the provincial government announced in a news release Tuesday. This year, a teacher who retires at 55 or more with an age-plus-service index of 94 will receive a pension without reduction for age. The index number of 94 could, for ex- ample, apply to a teacher who is 59 years old and has had 35 years of service. By 1975, a teacher retiring at 55 with 35 years service will receive a maximum pension by virtue of having an index number of 90. Three years ago. an index number of 100 was necessary to qualify for maximum pension. The normal retirement age" for teachers has been 65, but since 1970 teachers in the province have had the option early retirement on the basis of an age-plus-service index. Education Minister Lou' Hyndman, in the news release, noted that an impor- tant benefit of the bylaw amendments under the Teachers' Retirement Fund Act is that a teacher with 10 years or more service now is' eligible for an immediate pen- sion if he or she retires on or after the 55th birthday. Molgate favored to win top job By VICTOR MACKIE Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Senator Gildas Molgat of Manitoba is ex- pected to win the presidency of the National Liberal Federation when the Liberal party holds its convention here commencing Friday. The 46-year-old former Manitoba Liberal leader is highly favoured to win the top executive post in the hierarchy of the party, a post now occupied by Senator Richard Stanbury of Toronto. Well aware of the Liberal party's present weaknesses in the west the party organiza- tion hopes that election of a westerner to the presidency will help in rebuilding its strength in that part of the country. The balloting for the execu- tive posts will be by secret ballot as will the voting on whether or not the more than delegates favour an ear- ly leadership convention. That ballot will take the form of a vote of confidence or non- confidence in the leadership of Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau. TRUDEAU SAFE Mr. Trudeau's leadership is not expected to be seriously challenged at the convention. There were some Liberals after the outcome of the Oc- tober election who suggested that perhaps the time had come for Mr. Trudeau to step down The prime minister Litterbugs would clean up streets CALGARY (CP) Alderman Petrasuk says the only wav to fight Jitterbugs is sentencing them to work as street-cleaners for a few days. "Fines won't he said in an interview. "Those litter- bugs should be sentenced to clean up the city, for a day or two or three and then they'll know what this is all about." City council will study his proposal. however has done such a masterful job of walking the tightrope of minority govern- ment and surviving in parlia- ment that he has regained the support of many Liberals. Even those who would like to see a change realize that the ever-present threat of a general election makes a shift in leadership at this time out ot the question. Oil firms map reply to Libya PARIS (Reuter) Representatives of nine major oil consuming countries are meeting here to consider a possible joint reply to Libya's 51-per-cent nationalization of foreign oil firms.
