DIES IN COMA LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) Orbey Robbins, injured in a car accident and unconscious for more than four years, died Tuesday at age 59. He was the only person injured in a five- vehicle accident in 1969. Rob- bins, a lab technician, never regained consciousness. Grape king By DENNIS TRUDEAU MONTREAL homemakers fed up with the rising cost of beef or for city dwellers interested in dabbl- ing in raising beef, two Montreal men have come up with a scheme to provide beef at about a pound. For Live Stock Management Associates Ltd. will buy a three month-old calf fatten it up for eight months, slaughter it and deliver 600 pounds of meat in the form of roasts, steaks and ground beef ready for home freezing. Jim Lewis, president of Provincial Calf Feeds and Provincial Veal Co. Ltd., and Andre Leveillee, along with three Montreal businessmen, recently set up the firm and have about 20 calves in the process of fattening. "As far as we know, there is no other program like this m North says Mr. Lewis, whose feed firm pro- vides the special "high-con- version" feed which puts about 700 pounds on the calves in eight months. WERE EXPORTING "Up until now we've been preparing thousands of calves for export" to Europe and the U.S. where they are put on fat- tening programs, Mr. Lewis said. But with the rising cost of beef in Canada, they turned to the domestic market. "We just feel the timing is right People who sign a contract with the firm, will pay down and supply six postdated cheques to cover the cost of housing, feeding and slaughtering the animal The price also includes in- surance against the death of the calf or damage during transport Last Saturday Live Stock Management's first 20 contract calves were moved into a barn in St. Mathias Que., about 15 miles southeast of Montreal m the Richelieu valley. There they are to be raised under a "meat factory" system used in Japan, says Mr. Lewis. The animals are kept in- doors and fed only the "high conversion pounds of feed will put one pound on the water. The result is "extremely tender beef because the cattle can't move he said. The cattle, slaughtered in federally-approved slaughterhouses, will produce either grade A or grade B beef under the federal classification. Grape King Roy John- son of St. Catharines Ont- tario lends a helping hand and a watchful eye as grapes are mechanically harvested from his 50 acres of vineyards which this year were judged the finest in Canada King Roy, a grape grower for 46 years, rules over the ten- day Niagara Grape and Wine Festival, which con- cludes September 30. Weather holds up harvest MOSCOW (Reuter) Bad weather in many parts of the Soviet Union is holding up the gram harvest, newspapers re- port. However, the Communist party daily Pravda says 93.1 per cent of the area sown with grain this been harvested. Of this, 93 per cent has been threshed, it adds. The Soviet Union has been making a concerted effort to bring in a record harvest to make up for the poor crop of 168 million tons caused by a combination of frosts and drought last year. The weather in the early part of the sunny spells, interspersed with well for the grain crop, but heavy rainfall in August hampered harvesting in some areas. Life insurance.
