Milk Producers Plan Weekend Convention In Minneapolis SAN ANTONIO, Tex. (AP) --' reclaiming unity and a record Sales year, the nation's largest dairy co operative is preparing o meet this weekend in Minneapolis. Associated Milk Producers, !nc. (AMPI), headquartered here, announced Tuesday it old just under $1.42 billion of luid milk and manufactured dairy products. , Along with the financial report, for the fiscal year which ended June 30,- general manager George Heliren and president John Butterbrodt issued a oint statement. "We have been put to virtually every conceivable test of the market, the government and the public forum known to mankind," they said. "We have endured and passed these tests with strength and unity." At least one member of the co-operative, John Ertel of San Antonio, doesn't believe there is unity. Ertel, who is also a lawyer, will be going to the annual meeting ''in .Minneapolis as a voting.i delegate. ' . ' , . ."It's no secret I'd like to see a change in management," Ertel said. "Many, many dairymen I've talked to are not pleased with the present management or the present boarc members." Hehren and Butterbrodt said, "It has been a hard year, but a good year." For one thing, said the pair, AMPI returned a maximum 95 cents on the dollar to dairy farmers in milk checks despite the co-operative's net margin decreasing 27 per cent from the revious year. During the previous year, 'armors received 94 cents out of each dollar of AMPI revenue. However, the cooperative 'aced problems. Three of its former officials pleaded guilty to charges involving illegal corporate contributions to candidates for public office. The co-operative itself pleaded guilty and was fined 'or a $100,000 corporate contribution to former,President Nixon's re-election campaign. AMPI continued to fight an expensive antitrust suit brought jy the federal government, alleging the 37,000-member co-operative sought to monopolize ,he sale of milk in the Midwest. R e c e n t l y the co-operative agreed to a consent decree to settle the suit out of court, but other private and state suits are pending. The co-operative's announcement Tuesday said the record 1074 sales were 28.5 per cent or $315 million above the previous year's totals. : Pro Football WORLD FOOTBALL LEAGUE Wednesday's Games Memphis at Florida Detroit at Philadelphia New York at Houston Portland at Southern California SAVOR Horn Made BISCUITS 8 Oz. 10 Ct.
