The basin, at the eastern end of the Bay of Fundy, is the site of the world's highest tides. Once the flood tide enters the river, the freighter rides high above the dock. Flood conditions hamper grain export commitments WINNIPEG (CP) Present flood conditions on the prairies have Canadian Wheat Board officials worried about meeting export commitments in the next few months. The flooding has knocked out a number of railway branch lines to elevators and caused additional problems with grain transport on some main lines. Many farmers can't get to their granaries to move the grain because of water and mud, and officials say grain now is moving out of elevators faster than it is being put in. With the expected late Chrysler boosts car prices DETROIT (AP) Chrysler Corp., staggering from a 98- percent drop in first-quarter profits, has boosted the average price of its cars It predicts two more increases in the next five months. Director John Dunlop of the Cost-of-Living Council described the increase announced by Chrysler Monday as "irresponsible." Chrysler's increase puts its average car and truck prices above their December, 1973, level. Meanwhile, Chrysler Canada Ltd. announced price increases averageing or 2.56 per cent on 1974-model cars and trucks, effective with shipments made Wednesday. It is Chrysler Canada's first general price increase since 1974 vehicle prices were established last Sept. 24. The 2.9-per-cent increase in sticker prices is the parent company's third since Dec. 10, when the Cost-of-Living Council lifted controls on the auto industry in return for a promise from all auto- makers, except Chrysler, to limit price increases to a car for the balance of the 1974- model year barring "unforeseen major economic events.1' Chrysler Chairman Lynn Townsend said the new price increase is justified because of increasing costs, even if the firm had made the commitment. Dunlop responded from Washington: "I view Mr. Townsend's statement as a display of consummate gall in announcing an interpretation of an agreement to which he chose not to be a party. "While his competitors are participating in the effort through decontrol commitments to stabilize prices through the remainder of the 1974-model year, Mr. Townsend, in effect, now calls on his competitors to raise their prices in violation of their agreements with the council." seeding and summer fallow work to follow, wheat board officials say it could be June before farmers are in a position to deliver grain. Peter Wintemute, board director of transportation, said in an interview Monday one encouraging aspect is that there are indications some farmers in Manitoba might be able to get on their land in about a week. Some farmers in Saskatchewan might also be ready to begin seeding, he said. But in northern Alberta there is an estimated 60 million bushels of grain, mainly barley, that had been under snow and Mike Martin, director of grain operations, said it is feared that almost half of it is lost The board's programmed flow of specified quantities and qualities of grain needed to meet specified export commitments is being disrupted by the isolation of shipments because of the flooding. JVif. Martin said some eastbound shipments were caught on the west side of a major rail blockage and had to be rerouted to Vancouver and some westbound trains could be caught in similar situations. Mr. Wintemute said the railways are struggling with the situation to keep shipments as near to normal as possible but the water problems have put things on a day-to-day basis in some areas. Another problem, unrelated to the flooding, is the slow clearance of grain through Vancouver terminals. Labor disputes may halt B.C. construction work VANCOUVER (CP) British Columbia could be heading for a major construction industry shutdown as early as Wednesday. Plumbers rejected an offer totalling an hour in wages and fringe benefits May delay final grain payments OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment introduced a bill Monday that would enable the wheat board to delay final payments to farmers until at least Jan. 1 after the end of the crop year. An amendment to the Cana- dian Wheat Board Act, it is de- signed to solve a problem faced by many farmers when the market is buoyant. The crop year and the pool period both end July 31 and many farmers last year re- ceived their final payment in 1973, earlier than usual. This resulted in unexpected income for some and increased their 1973 income tax. In a normal year, the final payment usually is not made until after the start of the next calendar year because of the time between delivery and sale. over two years during the weekend, despite a recommendation by their leaders to accept it. Their current package totals 8.90 an hour. Local 17-0 of the plumbers union were meeting Monday to conduct a strike vote. Negotiators for electricians have recommended that their members reject an offer described as similar to that spurned by the plumbers. The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 213, will vote on the package Tuesday. The IBEW, representing inside wiremen, has already served 72-hour strike notice and could be in a legal position to strike Wednesday as construction contracts expire. Heat and frost insulators, bricklayers, operating engineers, laborers, carpenters and cement masons, who also served strike notice Friday, are also in a position to strike by the middle of this week. These unions are members of a 10-union pact who have been bargaining jointly. Charles Connaghan, president of construction labor relations, representing the contractors, said the unions have refused to discuss money matters at the bargaining table. "They've gone out and taken a strike vote and issued strike notice without having come to the bargaining table to talk about money. It is very difficult to understand that type of he said. The plumbers could be in a legal position to strike before the end of the week. Les Andrew, .business agent for the plumbers union, said the plumbers were concerned that the proposed two-year contract did not contain an escalating cost-of-living clause. Electrical workers' pickets could close down any job where their contractors are working. The highest-paid construction workers are wiremen, currently earning an hour in wages and with fringe benefits included. Plumbers are next at in wages and an hour in total package. The lowest paid construction worker is the laborer at in wages and total package.
