Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 17, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 - THI lITHBRIDOI HERAID - Friday, September 17, 1971 Govt, challenged by food tycoon LONDON (CP) - Garry Weston, chairman of the giant group known as Associated British Foods, challenged the British government today over its estimates of how much membership in the European Common Market would cost housewives in this country. "It is my certain belief that the government has consistently underestimated the increases in this country's food prices consequent upon joining the Common Market," Weston told a meeting of company shareholders. He assumed the chairmanship Snowmobile firm shows profit drop MONTREAL (CP) - Bom bardier Ltd., manufacturer of snowmobiles and other recreational products, today reported a net profit of $1,250,000 or eight cents a share in the first half of 1971, down sharply from the $2,108,000 or 13 cents in the comparable 1970 period. Sales totalled $42,511,000 in the first half of this year com' pared with $40,060,000. The company said the new United States economic policy will not substantially affect its sales. The company exports about 60 per cent of its snowmobile production to the U.S. of Associated British Foods in 1987 after his father, Garfield Weston, relinquished it to become company president. The younger Weston, a Toronto native, said the cost to Britain of joining the Common Market would be high. It "must be borne in the first instance by the housewives of this country in higher food prices," he went on. "These facts must not be swept under the carpet but must be fully understood and appreciated." Unless this was the case, "food industries like our own will become the future victims of the consumer's wrath and of further political attack." On company affairs, Weston said he "will be very disap pointed if this company's contin ued growth this year is not well maintained." In his analysis of Common Market costs, the ABF chairman singled out the question of wheat. He said that by the time Brit ain becomes a full member of the Common Market, the country's milling industry would be paying "an additional �100 million ($250 million) a year for the same wheat we are using at the present time." Weston made his comments on the Market issue little more than a month before Parliament begins a crucial debate on whether to approve the princi pie of entry for Britain into the six-member European community.

Mr Stanfield said in a statement that the increase in the seasonally-adjusted rate of unemployment-up to 6.5 in August from 6.3 in July-is "especially ominous since it does not take into account the effects of the United States surcharge op Canada's exports." On behalf of the Canadian people, said the Conservative leader, he was demanding the following immediate action: ON YOUR MARK - Ontario Liberal leader Robert Nixon is given encouragement by East York mayor True Davidson as he points starter pistol to launch the party's election campaign in Toronto.

Alaska natives may receive $1 billion, and land claims WASHINGTON (AP) - The House of Representatives interior committee began work today on legislation to give Alaska natives about $1 billion and 40 million acres in settlement of land claims. Some 55,000 Eskimos, Aleuts and Indians claim ancestral title to most of the land mass of Alaska, which the United States bought from Russia a century ago for $7.2 million. The Nixon administration has given strong support to the land-claim settlement, which moved closer to realization Wednesday when the Senate interior committee approved a bill similar to the one being studied by the House committee. The Senate version called for $500 million in payments over 12 years and an additional $500 million in royalties from mineral production on Alaska public lands. BILL GENEROUS The Senate bill, called the most generous settlement proposal ever reported by a congressional committee, also would give the natives a choice, by referendum, between two land-grant proposals. The first would give the natives title to 40 million acres of land, mostly in contiguous blocks around villages. This is HOW TO BUY A NEW CAR - So you're thinking about buying a new car.

The second alternative would give the natives title to 30 million acres, including mineral rights in 26 million acres and surface ownership of four million acres, plus the right to use an additional 20 million acres. The House subcommittee bill under consideration calls for nearly $1 billion in cash and royalties, and grants of 20 million acres immediately with an additional 20 million acres after Alaska has completed land selections under its statehood act.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge placed Carl Dean Wilson of the Beach Boys rock group on probation last year for fail, ing to work as a veterans hospital aide in lieu of military service. Now the 24-year-old singer and composer has the court's permission for his own kind of alternative service, as a conscientious objector. For the next two years he'll tour prisons, hospitals and orphanages. "I feel this is an opportunity to do something I can do well," Wilson told U.S. District Court Judge Harry Pregerson at a hearing Tuesday. The judge agreed. Wilson, who was classified as a conscientious objector in 1967, promised to devote at least 40 hours a week to the project and said other members of the Beach Boys would donate their time to appear with him.
