t CREELEY (Cdo.) TRIBUNE 8»t..Mirtll (, mi Sugar beet growers association announces contract talk meets THE FAMILY CIRCUS By Bil Keane Grower representatives of the Mountain States Beet Growers Marketing Association have announced meetings for four locals in Weld County. According to the representatives, the meetings have been set to explain contract negotiation difficulties with Great Western Sugar for the 1976 growing season. Contract negotiations came to a halt Thursday after grower representatives said they could not accept a proposed grower- processor formula change. The formula, based on average sugar extraction levels for sugar beets from 1960 to 1966 was used to determine grower payments made by the company. Grower representatives said the proposed formula would shift manufacturing risks to growers "which is entirely beyond our control. Growers look to the shift of responsibilities offered by the company as unfair," grower spokesmen said. Meetings have been set to explain the proposed formula and other contract negotiation difficulties for the following: -- Loveland local, to meet at 10 a.m. Monday at the American Legion Hall in Windsor. -- Brighton local, to meet at 8 p.m. Monday at the Co-op Building in Brighton. -- Greeley local, to meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Red Steer in Lucerne. --Eaton local, to meet at 2 p.m. Wednesday at the American Legion Hall in Eaton. Meeting dates and times had not been set for the Fort Collins, Longmont, For! Morgan or Fort Lupton locals by Friday night. Improve copy quality with the new A. B.

AttCK ATLANTA (AP) - The influenza epidemic spread to every region of'the nation last week but remained far below the magnitude of the Hong Kong flu epidemic of seven years ago, health authorities said Friday. The Hong Kong flu strain in 1969 produced 12,700 "excess deaths," meaning deaths above the expected number calculated by scientists at the national Center for Disease Control, a center spokesman said. Through Feb. 28 of this year, 1,270 "excess deaths" have been reported from the 121 major U.S. cities sampled weekly by the center, the spokesman said. Center scientists establish an expected number of flu-related deaths working with statistics from previous nonepidemic years. Using a complex formula, they then add a cushion ft urog factor of 50 to 60 deaths to establish an "epidemic threshold." A flu strain called A-Victoria, which was first isolated in Australia, is mainly responsible for current outbreaks. Public health officials in St. Petersburg, Fla., said Friday that the A-Victoria strain may also be responsible for an apparent flu outbreak at a nursing home where 27 persons have died within the last two weeks. The 27th death at the Sunshine Convalarium was reported Friday; three died Thursday and two Wednesday. At least 15 of the dead suffered from flu- like symptoms, officials said. They said a normal rate of death at such a facility would be eight to 10 in the period.
