For More Information Phone Owner SALE CONDUCTED Bob Laackmann Do. IIMf7 MILK RIVED, PHONE 047.2141 Hughes, on his arrival promptly paM million for a hotel and its surrounding villas, pool, tennis courts and- marina. There, are reports that Hughes, given credit for the creation of Las Vegas, is striking a deal with the government to acquire a casino licence In Freeport. He is also reported to be negotiating for the purchase of two other major Freeporl hotels. Vesco, 38, began exerting a strong financial influence in the Bahamas soon after he came under fire from officials in a number, of countries for his dealings in Investors Overseas Services, a multinational mutual-fund organization. The Detroit-born financier is reported te have investments totalling more than million in this country of 700 islands stretching from just off the Florida coast to Haiti. Critics of Prime Minister Lynden Pindling say Vesco's investments are made with a view to generating influence enough to move into the lucr- ative casino business. He con- tributed to Pindling's 1972 re- election campaign and his bank holds a mortgage on the prime minister's palatial new home. Pindling denies any tie-in with Vesco. He says the American is free to carry put private transactions like anyone else. But there are signs Pindling is becoming disenchanted. One well-placed member of Pindling's political organization, the Progressive Liberal party, considered the decision last December not to extradite Vesco a victory of Bahamian jurisprudence over U.S. law. Now he says testimony about Vesco at the trial of former Nixon cabinet members John Mitchell, and Maurice Stans has changed his mind, which is a good in- dication that Vesco may have lost some of his clout with Pindling's people. There are also reports that Vesco may be retrenching a bit because of numerous legal actions tying up his funds. But there is no sign that he is pull- ing out. More rail grain cars on order OTTAWA (CP) Otto Lang, minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, said Friday the government has decided to buy more rail hopper cars to move western grain. Replying in the Commons to Norval Homer Mr. Lang said that the government now is discussing the delivery rate of the new cars. He said he hopes the order can be placed as soon as pos- sible. The wheat board requested the additional hopper cars some months ago to help cope with heavy export of grain. The government acquired hopper cars two years ago and supplied them to the railways. The government provided more than million in aid to the railways earlier this year to help refurbish aging rail equipment used to haul grain. The wheat board last year complained about the inability to get grain to export points quickly enough. One commissioner told the Commons transport committee that slowness in moving grain probably reduced wheat board export sales. The board was re- luctant to promise quick deliv- ery because of the transport system. Former banker CDC head TORONTO (CP) John Ellis of Vancouver, vice- chairman of the board of Bank of Montreal, has been appointed chairman of UK Canada Development Corp. CDC in its Vancouver head office, it was announced here. Mr. Ellis replaces Marshall A. Crowe, recently appointed chairman of the National Energy Board. Headache tracking dawn owners Recalls cut prof its of automakers HOWARD HUGHES Government error may be costly TORONTO (CP) The Globe and Mail says the federal government forgot to include higher-priced oil from natural gas and oil sands in setting the single wellhead rate for Canada at S6.50 a barrel. The newspaper says the error 'could cost Canadian consumers about million a year or about 20 cents more a barrel when the higher-priced fuel is averaged into the calculation of wellhead price. Energy Minister' Donald Macdonald and Alberta and Ottawa officials said Thursday th-at the two governments disagree on whether the two unconventional oils were covered by last week's oil price agreement, the newspaper says. aUCaUM> ANOO TORONTO Tkey don't like It, bat automakers have tearad to Uve with the rtcall campaign, it's costly and it usually imans some- body goofed. The realbeadacte is track- ing down the car owner, but the height of frustration comes with Ike motorist who simply not answer a re- call. This year has started the same as many others. In the first two months, General Mo- tors, Chrysler and Ford had four major recalls covering vehicles in Canada. A total of 1.48 million were re- called in the United States, In 1973 the Big Three and American Motors recalled vehicles in Canada for safety defects. That repre- sented the bulk-but not all- of such campaigns which by law are reported to the fed- eral ministry of transport.- The ministry recorded 178 recalls last year from 56 com- auto mak- ers, foreign auto manufac- turers, snowmobile manufac- turers, motorcycle firms and the like. Total number of ve- hicles recalled for safety-re- lated defects was down from more than in 1972.' The 1973 total included more than snowmobiles and motorcycles. In the fourth quarter alone there- 61 recalls covering cars, trucks and buses, snowmobiles, motorcycles and 347 trailers. Recalls have been around almost since the auto industry began. The first by General Motors, for instance, was in- itiated in 1916 by its Buick di- vision. A GM of Canada official said every mass-produced passenger car contains an av- erage of about parts, including BWWBBg parti at whew, brakes, fairs, vulves. pistons, switches aad electrical components. "The number of vehictag re- called Is in no way related to the nunfber of vehicles which may actually have a he said. many cases, a recall campaign Is like looking for a needle hi a haystack. We may turn up a handful of defects even though thousands of ve- hicles were recalled." Recalls are costly. Ford es- timates a Jan. ll recall of 1974-model cars, in- cluding in Canada, will cost about million. The campaign is to locate 400 cars that may have a tian in the automatic sfMtf control device, option, activated by a stcerinf wheel button.
