CITES WESTERN PRICES Western Canadian farmers this week were getting 32 cents a pound for choice slaughter steers on the Calgary livestock market. At the same time, housewives in Toronto were paying about a pound for beef from similar cattle. But a publication by the Ca- nadian Cattlemen's Association says a typical steer will yield a saleable carcass weighing about 570 pounds. Thus, a packing house which purchased a steer for would realize about from sale of the carcass at the prevailing wholesale price of about a hundreweight. "The packers make ost of their money fromsale of the hides and processing of the of- said Mr. Gracey. The retailer purchases the carcass for and sells it in various forms from prices ranging from 70 cents a pound for hamburger to ?1.40 for T- bone steaks. On that basis, a supermarket paying 8L cents a pound for sa- leable meat would sell it at an average of a markup of 20 per cent. B.C.

(CP) The leader of the Communist party of Canada said Tuesday the government should encourage the expansion of secondary manufacturing industries to process the country 's natural resources and create jobs for Canadians. William Kaslitan, speaking to 18 people at the opening of the Norman Bethune Centre, said the three greatest needs in Can- ada are Canadian control of the economy through public own- ership, national unity and em- ployment and adquate income for all Canadians. He said jobs for Canadians will not come from selling natu- ral resources to the United Stales. The S3-year-old communist leader said the main issue in the Oct. 30 federal election campaign will be the need for increased Canadian control of the economy. He said it is regrettable that the Canadian government de- cided to recognize Norman Bethune as a "man of impor- tance" at tho same time as try- ing to open new trade avenues the Peoples Republic of China. KNEW BETHUNE The Bethune centre in Guelph is also a bookstore and head- quarters for the Guelph chapter of the Communist party. Mr. Kashtan, who said he knew Bethune in Canada and Spain, said the doctor was among the pioneers who raised the idea of government respon- sibility for medical care. "It is accepted now, but was a revolutionary idea then thai medical care was a right, not a privilege of the he said. 1 Ablutions 7 Violinist 12 Gay----- 17 Thoughtful attention, for short 20 Ester 21 Trie sun: 22 Savor 23 Mafaywi 24 Author ot "Sea Around Us" 26 Areas in danger of pollution 28 Kett of ihe comics 29 Late actor peter----- 30 Ungodly: Fr. 32 Qualm, as of comuenco 33 Roman coin 34 Wood measure! 35 Maxim 36 Sphere of opeiation By Lucile H.
