Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 18.19.4 i HE LE i riamuGt HERALD 39 IOMfiE Canada accused of hog dumping across border BELT, Mont. (AP) Eastern District Congressional candidate Jack McDonald says a flood of hogs from Canada is helping to hold down prices received by American beef producers. "It looks to me like the Canadians are dumping their excess hogs across the border in order to stabilize their own McDonald said in a prepared release. "The result is very simple and very clear. Canadian pork is replacing American pork and American beef on con- sumer's tables and that upsets me." McDonald presented statistics indicating hog shipments from Canada for the first half of 1974 had ex- ceeded shipments for all of last year. According to his figures, Canadian hog shipments during July, 1974 were five times those of July, 1973. McDonald blamed the House agriculture committee for failing to "recognize this threat to American producers and for failing to enact protec- tive legislation." Rep. John Melcher whom McDonald ds trying to unseat, is a member of that committee. Previously, McDonald at- tacked Melcher and the com- mittee for not helping Mon- tana ranchers ship beef to Canada. Canada recently reopened its borders to U.S. beef on the condition that it is certified free of a controver- sial growth hormone. McDonald said if he is elected he will introduce legislation to impose quan- titative restrictions on the amount of pork and hogs im- ported to the U.S. MUMMIES IN ARIZONA Well-preserved mummies and ancient relics such as baskets and cloth have been found in Arizona. Fantasy convention George Olshevsky (left) and Marty Her- zog, both of Toronto, trade tid-bits from old comic books in front of the blow-up of the first edition of Uncle Scrooge comics at Fantasy con- vention in Toronto at York University. The convention drew over 500 participants includ- ing one man who owns a copy of the first edi- tion of Superman com- ics, dating back to 1938, which he bought for Climate changes cause concern PRESS Scientists are coming to the conclusion that changes in the world's weather pattern pose a grave threat to the global food output that could lead to widespread crop failures and mass famine. A number of weather scien- tists fear increasing variabili- ty in the weather could increase the risk of disastrous droughts, devastating floods and other catastrophes. Some experts say that man is ill-prepared for a new trend of adverse climate which seems to be imminent. Weather conditions in many part of the world are causing grave concern among experts. They cite the lack of mon- soon rains over key agricultural regions of India that have caused widespread hunger and at the same time damaging floods that have washed over Bangladesh. In Europe, scientists note, the weather had been too hot and dry at some times and too wet and cold at others. ICE LINGERS In North America, a weather expert recently reported that ice was linger- ing abnormally on the coasts of Newfoundland and the new evidence showed that the Gulf Stream was taking a more southerly course. The United States which supplies much of the world's food suffered a severe drought that began last fall in the. Southwest and spread to the east posing a grave threat to the corn belt. Other reports say that hot dry weather has badly hurt spring wheat in the United States. There is another side to the picture however. Canada's grain prospects are said to be good depending on what hap- pens in the next month. Aus- tralia reports no serious prob- lems, other than some floods. The Soviet Union which had a good winter wheat crop is is- suing bright predictions of a high grain output. What happens in the next few weeks may have a. decisive effect for 1974 food production. A recent world grain out- look issued by the U.S. depart- ment of agriculture said the situation was less favorable in mid-July than it was a month earlier. "The June 14 production estimate was million metric said the department's estimate, "but as of mid-July, the total out- put is estimated at only 983.8 million metric tons." THEN CAME THE BOATS Authorities believe the earth's land surface once comprised a single primeval continent which split about 150 million years ago into two super-continents. Mac-MUHcrieRS...
