Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2-THE LETHBRIDGE Egg scramble hurts market OTTAWA (CP) Farm leaders are worried that the rotten-egg dispute will under- cut efforts to set up a controll- ed marketing system for a wide range of farm com- modities. Critics of farmer-run Mounties squash Hearst rumor GRANDE PRAIRIE (CP) RCMP in this northwestern Alberta city Friday night issued a news release they probably would not have bothered with had it not been for the steady stream of telephone calls to their office from centres across North America. The calls, which began about 6 p.m. and did not subside until about 2Va hours later, stemmed from rumors that Patricia Hearst, who was kidnapped from her Los Angeles home earlier this year and subsequently became involved with the Symbionese Liberation Army, had been seen in this area. The RCMP office became inundated with calls from as far away as Montreal, Washington and Los Angeles, but police said there was no truth to the rumors. Police explained in the news release they had interviewed a sirl who was involved in a minor motorvehicle accident in the city about a.m. that day. The girl '''bore a strong resemblance to Patricia Hearst" but following the interview and a check with FBI files, it was determined she was not the daughter of Los Angeles publisher Randolph Hearst. Labor Day frost trims Alberta crop CALGARY (CP) The Alberta Wheat Pool said Fri- day that frost during the Labor Day weekend appears to have damaged both the yield and quality of crops in the province. The pool, in its weekly crop report, said late-seeded crops which were still green when the frost struck, will suffer both a yield and quality loss. "Those crops near maturity will most likely suffer only a quality loss and in the central, north-central and northern regions, one fifth to one-third of the crop may be damaged."

In a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau, the Con- sumers Association of Canada reiterated its stand that marketing boards "distort supply, drive up prices ar- tificially, produce unjusti- fiable profits for many large scale producers, operate in unnecessary secrecy and generally result in inef- ficiency and waste.'1 Paul Babey, chairman of the National Farm Products Marketing Council, said op- ponents of marketing boards, which attempt to match supp- ly with demand by controlling production through a series of quotas, "aren't really concerned about wasted food or the effect on low-income consumers. They want to kill a concept." The consumers association said that if boards are to exist, "they should be recognized as monopolies which have not been created for their own sake but rather in the general public interest." "Their operations and policies should be much more open to public scrutiny than has been the case to date." Mr. Babey, Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan and other proponents of the marketing concept say farmers have the right to go about their business without interference; that consumers should have no more say in the marketing of farm goods than farmers now have in the AUTHOR DIES DOUGLAS, Isle of Man Walter Greenwood. 71, author of the best-selling novel of the 1930s, Love on The Dole, was found dead Friday at his home here. marketing of such things as fertilizer or (arm implements. For the last six years the Trudeau government has backed this philosophy. When legislation giving farmers the right to establish national marketing agencies was pass- ed in 1972, all attempts to provide consumer representa- tion on the agencies were beaten down by the Liberal majority in the Commons. Now, however, the blanket endorsement of marketing boards has been drawn back somewhat. Consumer Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet has rebuked Mr. Whelan for criticizing the food prices review board for saying that all was not right in CEMA. He also has endorsed the re- view board and consumers as- sociation position that con- sumers should be represented on marketing agencies-. Blood clot hurts Nixon SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (Ap) A painful blood clot has developed in the left leg of Richard Nixon, and his doctor said the former president is suffering from "severe strain and physical fatigue." However, the doctor, air force Maj.-Gen. Walter Tkach, said Nixon is "mental- ly alert" and hospital treat- ment has been ruled out at Nixon's request. The new clot apparently is not considered extremely serious because Tkach took an air force jet back to Washington Friday afternoon. A spokesman at the Nixon home said the physician will return in a week for further examination of the ailment. Tkach's statement, released Friday by a Nixon aide, said: "I have found the former president to be suffering from severe strain and physical fa- tigue, but he is mentally alert and has been working at his office at home each dav. Kootenay school workers to vote THE CANADIAN PRESS A spokesman for the Canadian Union of Public Employees said Friday negotiators for the union and four West Kootenay school districts in British Columbia have agreed on a contract proposal, which workers will vote on today Sunday.
