Minister Irwin Haskett made a joint statement Tuesday that Ontario would ban studded tires after April 30, 1971. They said 32 per cent of the vehicles in Ontario now used studded tires and by 1ST71-72 at least CO per cent were expected to be stud-equipped. Provincial officials have pre- dicted the studs will cause million in road damage .during the next 10 years. Mr. Gomme said the tires ob- literate lane markings and ere. ate ruts in roads, both safety hazards, and that studies have shown studded tires increase braking distance under most conditions. He said they are effective in southern Ontario for only 1.1 per cent of winter driving time. Deputy Highways Minister L. T. Holmes of Saskatchewan said if people consider studs a safety device, perhaps they are pared to pay for moderate wear on highways. He said the province has not made any detailed studies but that studded tires do not appear to have done much damage to Saskatchewan roads.

Council members from major meat-packing firms appeared before the Commons agriculture committee, currently examining the bill. It would include meats as well as animals as commodities subject to regulation by the pro- posed marketing agencies. The council spokesmen advo- cated that agencies control the sale of agricultural products only up to the point where they are purchased by a processing firm, rather than allowing regu- lation of the commodities after firms process and ship them, perhaps to other provinces. F. P. Schneider, chief execu- tive officer of J. M. Schneider Ltd., Kitchener, Ont, said the bill represented "an implicit threat to interprovincial trade." FEAR UAIUIIERS Its powers to control inler- provincial shipping of processed meat products would make it impossible for packing compa- nies to allocate their capital re- sources in any particular prov- ince, for fear barriers would be placed in the way of transport- ing the finished products else- where. The council's submission di- rectly opposed earlier producer submissions that processed products should definitely be in- cluded as regulated products. Many products shipped intcr- provincially arc moved si a processed or partially-process- ed form. W. F. McLean, president of Canada Packers Ltd., Toronto, Loses Licence For MOOSE JAW (CP) Dwight Dwayne Bretton, 24, of Calgary was fined and costs on a charge of dangerous driving by District Court judge A. W. Pope. Bretton also was prohibited from driving for two years. HP was charged after a single- vehicle traffic accident hi the city a year ago in which his wife Judith Lyrine Bretton, 21, was killed. said tlie power given to agen- cies under the bill if extended, would allow them to replaca competition in the consumer market with regulation of prices. The council also recommend- ed that national marketing plans not concern themselves with putting quotas on production or setting farmer selling prices. Free selling competition, per- haps through an auction sys- tem, and controlling supply through price were presented the most efficient systems. ON'S Great Values at Sealy Sleep Sale!
