The state department, which reacted bitterly a week ago when Canada raised the export price on oil. had no complaint about this latest move. "Not another tariff." one state department official said. "You put on an oil levy to keep the Canadian price down. Now it appears you've put on a levy to keep a Canadian price up." However, where the oil in- crease came as a shock to the U.S. government, reinstitu- tion of the beef tariff was no surprise "We knew it was an official of the agriculture department said. "There have been in- DRUM LESSONS Instrument supplied for home practice at Phone 327-7524 530 5th St. S. dications the Canadians might do this." The cents a pound on beef and 1.5 cents on live dropped by the Canadian government last February. It was reimposed, effective today. MARKET DISTORTED In making the an- Chamber reduces committees A reduction of committees from 14 to seven was the main order of business at the Lethbridge Chamber of Commerce meeting held in Claresholm, Wednesday. Secretary-manager Michael Sutherland says the action was necessary because some committees were duplicating the work of others. The new committees are civil, provin- cial and federal affairs, agriculture, membership, business affairs, finance and public relations The meeting was held to give new members of the chamber a chance to state some of the policies and objec- tives they would like to pursue during the coming year. A more effective contribu- tion in civic affairs was stressed at the meeting attended by 19 out of 30 new members. New members will be in- stalled at a meeting Oct. 3 and there will be a continuation of the policy meeting held Tues- day on Oct. 10.

Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan said the recent U S. freeze on beef prices, since lifted, produced "a distortion" in the Canadian market and said "cattlemen must be given confidence that they can produce at a profit in Canada Lately, with U.S. prices lower than those in Canada, thousands of cattle have been shipped into Canada from the U.S.. putting strong "downward pressure" on prices there. Whelan said that if the U which has a similar tariff on Canadian to drop its levy. Canada will review the situation. A U S agriculture depart- ment official said that while the reimposed tariff should not make any anyway, not the current cattle traffic, what it might mean is that any increase in such trade might be slowed down." "Since the U.S. hasn't taken her tariff off. this equalizes the duty. It, basically, sort of puts things back in he said.

FEATURING KNELSEN FAMILY Ceuridnle By DAVE BLAIKIE OTTAWA (CP) Opposi- tion parties hurled parting shots at government anti- inflation policies Friday, then headed home for their interrupted summer recess. Adjourning to Oct. 15, they wound up a special three-week Commons sitting that began Aug. 30 with emergency legislation to end the national rail strike and later shifted to problems posed by the rising cost of living. The summer break original- ly started July 27, four weeks later than normal, after busi- ness bogged down and the mi- nority Liberal government kept members sitting over- time to clear up some of the backlog. Health men will stress prevention By GLENNIS ZILM OTTAWA (CP) Improve- ments in the health of Cana- dians now "depend far more on how we behave as in- dividuals, on our lifestyle, than on improvements in the quality and quantity of health care." Dr. Maurice LeClair, deputy national health minister said Friday. Canada has gone about as far as it can afford in providing more and better treatment for diseases, he told an Ontario regional meeting of the Royal College oi Physicians and Surgeons. If more Canadians are to live longer and healthier lives, then more emphasis has to be placed on prevention, he said. "It is apparent we have been spending vast sums treating diseases that could have been prevented in the lirst place Dr LeClair was providing details on the federal health department's new role, an- nounced two weeks ago by Health Minister Marc Lalonde. EMPHASIZE EDUCATION The department now will place more emphasis, on public education, so that in- dividuals can more intelligently assume respon- sibility for their own health, and more support to research programs, environmental controls and physical fitness programs The major cause ot pre- mature death in this country is heart diseases, and contributing causes are overweight, lack of exercise, high fat diets, smoking and stress The deputy minister esti- mated that about Canadians are drinking amounts" of alcohol and that these people are showing up in mental and genera'l hospitals, while cirrhosis of the liver, a dis- ease usually related to ex- cessive consumption of alcohol, is the 10th major cause of death for men and 13th for women, he said. Dr. LeClair said the Addic- tion Research Foundation of Ontario has estimated that in that province alone, million was spent during 1971 lor health problems related to alcoholism. "Alcoholism is also an im- portant contributor to deaths trom poisonings, accidental tires, falls, suicides pneumonia and so on." STEPPING HIGH The tallest stilts ever mas- tered were 22 teet high Circus employee Harrv Voiding ot used them in his act. Besides emergency strike legislation, the special sitting was highlighted by a series of measures to curb inflation and major changes in the government's oil policy. PENSION BOOSTED Included were higher pen- sions and family allowances, subsidies to hold down milk and bread prices, a voluntary domestic freeze on petroleum products and a hotly-disputed crude oil export tax to prevent the United States from buying Canadian oil too cheaply. Gerald Baldwin, retiring Conservative House leader summed up his party's criticism of the government's performance by congrat- ulating Liberal MPs on having the courage to adjourn and "face their constituents with their ghastly record of in- competence." Standing in the 264-seat House: Liberal 109, Con- servative 107, NDP 31, Social Credit 15 and Independent two. Among bills passed since Aug. 30 were measures rais- ing family allowances to a straight a month from the current average of 17.21 and boosting pensions to take the full effect of intlation into ac- count. FARMS GET BREAK Legislation amending the Crop Insurance Act and cutting premiums paid by some farmers also was passed, providing savings calculated by the government at million annually for the seven participating provinces. In addition to the crude oil export tax and price freeze, the government proposed a fundamental change in domestic oil marketing by calling for extension of the interprovincial pipeline to Montreal. It now runs from western Canada to Toronto. MPs, when they return, will decide whether to restore the five-year death penalty ban that expired last December. It would rule out the death penalty for all but murderers of on-duty policemen and prison guards. People convicted of capital murder since the previous ban expired theoretically can be hanged, but no executions have taken place in Canada since 1962. All death sentences imposed by the courts have been commuted by the cabinet. Ottawa details food date plan OTTAWA (CP) Federal proposals and regulations on dating of fresh foods and labelling of pre-packaged goods were made public Fri- day by the government. Interested parties, including companies and consumers, will be able to make their views known to the govern- ment on the proposed regulations for two months. Consumer Affairs Minister Herb Gray announced "open date marking" proposals that will apply to all perishable foods except fresh fruit and vegetables. Under the proposals, dealers will have to label dates after which food is not expected to maintain peak wholesomeness, palatibility and nutritional value. INTENDED AS A GUIDE The open date marking is in- tended only as a guide to con- sumers and is not a guarantee of quality or freshness of food bought on or before the date, Mr. Gray sain in a news re- lease. The rules will come under the Consumer Packaging and Labelling Act passed in 1971 but not yet proclaimed. The consumer affairs department says it is expected the act will be proclaimed or put in force by the end of the year, although the govern- ment will have to extend deadlines so companies can adjust to details in the regulations. Under the act, quantities in a package must be on labels in metric and traditional units of measurement. Addresses of manufacturers or distributors and common or generic names of products must also be included. The proposed regulations are expected to apply to about domestically-produced products and imports. NDP chief tackles oil sands Vip-off OTTAWA (CP) New Democrat Leader David Lewis attacked the Alberta government and Syncrude Canada Ltd.'s plans for development of the Athabasca oil sands Friday as "another obvious rip-off." Plans for the development have been revealed in sketchy detail only and should be made completely public, he told the Commons. He demanded that the federal government produce a national oil policy encompass- ing the Syncrude deal. The plans, as he sees them, call for a total investment of billion. About to million would be borrowed, while Alberta would put up another million for 20 per cent of the total equity. That would give three foreign-owned corporations control of 80 per cent of a billion investment for only million, Mr. Lewis said. He said Alberta and the de- velopers expect their oil to be exempt from both export con- trols and the newly-announced two-price oil system. The development may come within the scope of the government's foreign invest- ment review legislation before the Commons, he said.
