Manufacturing industry booms EARLY ZOO STARTED The oldest known zoo is at Schoenbrunn in Vienna, built in 1752. By BUD JORGENSEN OTTAWA (CP) A forecast for an acceleration of a boom in expansion plans by manufacturers is among results of a survey by government agencies of investment intentions this year in both public and private sectors of the economy. The survey projects a 28- percent increase in capital spending in manufacturing industries, following a gain of 19 per cent during 1973. ''Such additions to production facilities in this sector will significantly contribute to current and expected industrial growth of the country." There is a broad range of in- vestment plans by province in total investment plans, ranging from a gain of two per Cent in Newfoundland to 28 per cent in New Brunswick. The survey showed businesses and government agencies intend to spend about billion on capital con- struction and equipment pur- 1973 across Canada. ,The increase over estimates of capital spending during 1973 is about 16 per cent and this compares to a gain of almost 18 per cent during 1973 against 1972. More than business and government agencies were surveyed by the department of industry trade and commerce and Statistics Canada in preparing the report, based on information collected between November and January. MORE COMING Another report is to be done at mid-year and if investment intentions follow the pattern of last year and some other years there will be an upward revision in 1974 investment in- tentions. The report prepared a year ago showed a gain anticipated of about nine per cent, compared with the latest estimate of 18 per cent. At that time, business was merging from a re- cessionary period and was cautious in its outlook. Total capital spending projections by province during 1974 and anticipated increase over 1973 are as follows: Newfoundland, million, 1.8 per cent; Prince Edward Island, million, 11.5 per cent; Nova Scotia, million, 12.4 per cent; New Brunswick, million, 28.3 percent; Quebec, billion, 14.4 per cent; Ontario, billion, 16 per cent; Manitoba, billion, 14 per cent; Saskatchewan, billion, 17.1 per cent; Alberta, billion, 21.6 per and British Columbia, billion, 16.9 per cent. The figures for the Yukon and Northwest Territories are million and 7.1 per cent. The major increases in total planned investments is in the goods-producing industries. The anticipated increase over 1973 is about 25 per cent while the expected gain in service industries is about 14 per cent. "With the prime exception of reductions anticipated at present in the knitting mills and clothing industries, nearly all other components of manufacturing show extensive gains in planned outlays. "Particular strength is dis- played in primary metals as new extensive production facilities are being installed. Strength is also shown in petroleum and coal products, in the chemical industry, in transportation equipment, by paper manufacturers and in textiles and tobacco processing. In most cases, anticipated strong advance in these industries involves considerable acceleration, especially for paper and steel producers." UNIVERSITY SLUMP A slump in university ex- pansion since the end of a pe- riod of rapid expansion peaking in the mid-1960s is one of the factors in slower growth in the services sector. Relatively slower growth in government and school capital spending has been offset in part by "rapid increases expected by banks and insurance and real estate firms and establishments in commercial services." Olympic stamps pushed OTTAWA (CP) A advertising campaign will be used to help sell special stamps designed to raise million for the 1976 Olympic Games, Postmaster-General Andre Ouellet says. Mr. Ouellet said at a news conference that the advertising money will be taken out of revenues from sale of the special surcharged 'stamps. "There will be nothing from the he added. The stamps, termed "semi- postals" by the post office, go on sale April 17. The issues will cost 10 cents, 15 cents and 20 cents. Two cents of the 10-cent issue will go into the Olympic fund, while five cents from the sale of each 15-cent and 20-cent stamp will be earmarked for the Games. Postage value of the stamps will remain at eight, 10 and 15 cents respectively. Mr. Ouellet said the post of- fice expects 75 per cent of the million to be raised in Can- ada, the rest from sales to col- lectors abroad. Post office officials have stressed that sale of the sur- charged Olympic stamps will be strictly voluntary. A letter sent to department employees from 'deputy minister John Mackay says counter clerks must inform customers about the "action stamps." Television commercials will begin running April 21 and magazine ads will appear early in May. The television ads will include athletes who have successful in past events or who are hoping to participate in the 1976 Games in Montreal and Kingston, Ont. The surcharged stamps could only be issued by a special act of Parliament and Mr. Ouellet said there would have to be other changes to post office legislation if similar money-raising stamps were to be used for other purposes.
