Canadian Money Turned Down In Spain MADRID (Reuters) A Ca- nadian embassy spokesman here has warned Canadians vis- iting Spain to come armed with United States dollars to avoid difficulties in cashing their trav- ellers' cheques. Spanish banks have been re- fusing to deal in Canadian dol- lars since the currency was put on a floating rate last May, the spokesman said today. Since then there have been 15 known cases of Canadians being unable to cash their travellers' cheques. The embassy usually solves the problem by referring travel- lers to the British-owned Bank of London and South America, which has a branch in Madrid and is happy to cash Canadian dollars. In Montreal, a spokesman for American Express Co. of Can- ada Ltd. said travellers could exchange the companys' travel- ler's cheques at the American Express office in Madrid. The spokesman said that only Spam was refusing Canadian currency "for the time being." "We are advising Canadians to take travellers cheques or cash in U.S. funds."

But the two rally sessions in oils boosted the "Toronto ex- change's western oil index 15.82 points. The upward movement began Monday.

One analyst said that much of the upturn was Caused by a de- mand for oil shares in the United States. Walter Hickel, U.S. secretary of the interior, was reported to have said recently that there now is a shortage of gas in his country.
