Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta J2 THE UTHBRIDGE HE8AID -Big fira OTTAWA (CT) Firiecn Canadian companies were convicted false and misleading advertising in the fiscal year ended March 31 and another 32 firms were before the courts awaiting trial on the same charges, says D. II. W. Henry, director of investigation and research under the federal Combines Investigation Act. In Lhe same year, another 28 firms were found guilty ol misleading price advertising while 14 more charges were pending, says Mr. Henry's annual report tabled Tuesday in the Commons by Consumer Affairs Minister Jlon Bastard. The convictions were registered from St. John's, Nfld., to Vancouver and have included a number o[ the biggest names in the retail trade. Imperial Tobacco Ltd. is one. Its promotion of Casino cigarettes which included displays promising in every pack" resulted in a 53.000 fine. The company is appealing. ALSO PAYS FINES OUier familiar names paying fines following conviction were R.A. Beamish Stores Co. Ltd., Hudson's Bay Co., Reliable Toy O. Ltd., and Parker Brothers Games September 22, 1971 us convi Jlr llc-nry's report also in-rluilcd a forecast .of amendments to flic Combines Act which will toughen laws against misleading the buying public. One amendment is expected to deal with newspapers and radio and television stations which accept misleading advertising with little or no investigation. Responsibility for enforcing laws against misleading advertising was given to Mr. Henry in 1969. Until then, they formed part of the Criminal Code and were rarely enforced. Evidence that the consumer affairs department is having an Impact also is reflected in the number of complaints lodged with the combines branch about advertising. In the year ended March 31, 1967, just prior to establishment ot the department, only 15 complaints were received. This year there were SEE LAWS OBSERVED Mr. Henry and his staff of about 160 also have the responsibility of seeing that Canadian anti-combines laws are observed. One ot its successes, says Mr. Henry, resulted from numerous complaints in the Montreal of that. Wee Folks Diaper Services, ABC Diaper Service Inc., and Baby's Diaper Services virtually controlled the adv irnrkct in Uie transport nnd supply of collcn in Montreal. Proceedings Avero launched the Exchequer Court wilh the result that in February an order was issued ordering the three companies "from doing anything directed towards the operalion cf a monopoly in the diaper service business in Montreal and district Proceedings under the restrictive trade practice sections of the combines legislation also resulted in a fine against the British Columbia Professional Pharmacists' Society. Mr. Henry's research branch also was busy assembling information on feed retailing in Canada between 1961 and 19G8. If came to the conclusion that there was more competition 1961) than there was 10 years earlier. It noted that shifts of popula. lion to Uie suburbs was accompanied by grocery chains locating m sloping centres. "While the position of corporate chains has improved, Iho largest ones had a slightly smaller share of Uie market in than in reports the research branch. "The position of the unaffi-liated independent has continued ID decline but those of the smaller chains and the affiliated independents have improved rapidly." A jarring note was that the power of the larger chain stores in Western Canada increased greatly by 1968 and a few chains "have a disturbingly large share cf the market in some cities."

If proved effective and safe, this surgery could become a substitute for the vasectomy op-eralion, a simple procedure requiring about 20 minutes, and about 5200. In 1970 alone United Stales males bad vasectomies, but if they should want to regain fertility their chances of doing so are only about one in four. The new technique, now undergoing scientific evaluation at George Washington University Hospilal wilh four volunteers, would render a man sterile but leave the way clear for him to have his fertility restored 'later. Dr. Fletcher Derrick, chief of the hospital's department of urology, and Dr. Frederick Fresnilli, associate professor o[ urology, are conducting Ihe experiments. The procedure involves blocking the key reproductive canals in a man's body with tiny for men tic plugs and then removing the plugs, perhaps years later, in a second operalion. The first slage already has been carried out in four volunteers, the first of whom underwent surgery about a mouth ago. But the two doctors emphasized that it remains to be seen whether with restoration of can be achieved. Dr. Derrick said: "If Ihe technique proves effective and as it already has in experiments with it may well prove to be the first real, honest-to-goodness family-planning method involving no birtb-control pills for the wife, no rhythm method. "It's not designed just for the guy who already has up lo six kids, and perhaps a wife who can't take the and therefore doesn't want to have any more kids. "It's designed, for example, for a man who, right after marriage, mighl want lo be 'turned off for awhile, but then be able to come to a surgeon maybe two years later and say: 'Turn me on again.1 Ml S At '11 11 following: 3-lir.-bcr chairs; 4-mirrors; 3-lionclics; Electric wall clock: National cash register; Gas heater; Tlailio; 2-clollles ranks.
