Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, September 26, 1974 Crop thefts and vandalism cost farmers thousands CHILLIWACK, B.C. (CP) Kraser Valley farmers are patrolling their fields in an ef- fort to stop crop thefts which a spokesman says will total thousands of dollars. Nick Dewall, president of the Fraser Valley Food and Vegetable Growers Association, charged Wednes- day that there has been little co-operation from police although crop stealing and vandalism has increased dur- New rotten egg batch destroyed VANCOUVER (CP) Ten thousand dozen commercial grade Newfoundland eggs have been ordered destroyed because they arrived rotten. The eggs were part of a rail shipment ordered by the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency in Ottawa to Vander- pol's Eggs Ltd. in nearby Surrey. They arrived Monday after a three-week trip and were condemned Tuesday by an inspector from the provincial agriculture department. Firms such as Vanderpol's buy commercial-grade eggs to break and process into powder, or to sell in bulk to bakeries. Hank Berends, Vanderpol's foreman, said today CEMA would absorb the loss. He said he was amazed that an order for commercial- grade eggs came from so far away. "It seems ridiculous to me that there wouldn't be an egg cracking station in the Maritimes. or Quebec or On- tano to handle that he said. Mr. Berends said that when his plant needs eggs, an order is placed with CEMA, which then finds a surplus to fill the order. "These are eggs that don't meet standards required for retailing in the he said. "Such orders usually are fill- ed in B.C. or in Manitoba where there seem to be a lot of surpluses. Mr. Berends said the price paid by Vanderpol's about for a case of 30 dozen is the same regardless of shipp- ing charges, whether the eggs originate in Surrey or St. John's. He said the govern- ment operated CEMA pays the freight.

Crops need more warm weather CALGARY (CP) Alber- ta's farmers now have com- pleted only about one-third of the harvest and desperately need another two or three weeks of good weather, an Alberta Wheat Pool official said Wednesday. Gary Sargent, information analyst with the Pool, said re- cent hot, sunny weather allow- ed farmers to make great strides in getting this year's crops off but widespread rain showers and frosts now are predicted. Last year at the same time about half the crops were in storage but "we're about a good week to 10 days behind, reflecting the late spring seeding" this year. TOPPLES PYRAMIDS WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Federal Trade Commis- sion issued a ruling which would ban pyramid marketing. The system pays participants who recruit others to buy franchises, and the latest individuals recruited risk the loss of money they have paid out if they can't get others to sign up. The ruling was on a case involving Symbra'ette Inc., but if the courts uphold it the commission could shut down all pyramid schemes. 1003 4th Avenue South, Lethbridge Telephone 329-4426 ervices ing the past three years. He said that a telegram was sent Wednesday to Attorney- general Alex Macdonald, Agriculture Minister Dave Stupich and Premier Dave Barrett asking for police help including use of auxiliary RCMP members for night patrols. "This is the worst year we've ever had." he said. "It's so bad that people with campers have been driving into fields and taking away truckloads." Brian Sparkes, who operates 600 acres of cash crops near Agassiz across the river, said farmers from Richmond to the east end of the Fraser Valley have similar problems. "If it doesn't stop it's only a matter of time before someone gets he said. He said one farmer near Rosedale decided to do something after he lost worth of gas to thieves. The farmer attached a nine- foot blade to the front of his tractor and told the hired man to wait in the cab. When the car approached and its occupant began to fill its tank, the hired man switch- ed on the lights and the motor and headed for the car. As the surprised occupant fled, the blade sliced off the top of the car at door level, then the remains of the car were pushed down a bank. "No one has been back since." said Mr. Sparkes. Mr. Dewall explained that high on the list for both night and daytime stalkers are corn, strawberries, potatoes and carrots. In one field he lost more than a ton of corn, and in another a minimum of worth of corn everything in the first 10 rows next to the road was stripped. "I don't understand the at- titude of the public, police and the he said. "Most people seem to have the im- pression that a fanner won't miss a few dozen cobs of corn, carrots or cabbages. "But if it was shoplifting the courts would be severe and if someone broke into your home it would be even worse. Yet when we go to the police and even have information about vehicles and people we have sen stealing in our fields, they say there is little they can do." Bank interest won't change MONTREAL (CP) A Bank of Montreal spokesman said Wednesday he does not expect an immediate drop in Canadian prime interest rates following announcements of lower prime rates from several major American banks. "We have lagged behind the U.S. rates on the way up." the spokesman said. "I therefore would expect some lag before the move down."
