When it comes to food prod- the spokesman isn't one item you can pick out and say nothing is happening to never seen so many price changes in the last month and a half it's been pheno- The who wishes to remain said Western Grocers is receiving about 100 price changes a week. Most come in the mail and no reasons are given. BAD SCENE it's a bad scene right At the retail one-pound packages of lard increased five cents each a week ago. All dry brands of dog food went up 30 to 50 cents a case. An 18-ounce size of pie crust was up seven a 16-ounce bottle of peanut oil three cents and baking powder one cent for the eight-ounce two cents Egg board negotiations continue B.C. The secretary-manager of the British Columbia Egg Market- ing Board said in his annual report Friday that the future success of the board is tied largely to the outcome of nego- tiations with the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency. The B.C. board is seeking to have the national agency apply weekly marketing quotas to all Canadian egg producers and to have each Canadian producer financially responsible for his own excess production. Ed Morgan said the long- sought stability in the industry would be within reach if the Canadian egg marketing agen- cy adopted these policies and set producer prices according to the cost of production.

Textile import plan backfires OTTAWA A two-year- old government program to pro- tect Canadian textile makers by restricting cotton yarn imports has backfired. Thirteen developing countries subjected to the trade restric- tions have not been fulfilling even the limited delivery quotas permitted by the Canadian pro- gram. At the same one of the Canadian companies the pro- gram was designed to protect has closed down three yarn fac- tories. The result is a shortage of yarn for the domestic textile in- dustry and a steep climb in prices. The proposed by the federal textile and clothing board and approved in an an- nouncement this week by the is to offer Cana- dian importers and the devel- oping countries an opportunity to ship about eight per cent more yarn to Canada in the re- maining five months of CSs year. Apart from that re- strictions on imports will be reimposed at least until the end of 1974. In view of the supply shortage experienced late last year and early this there is no cer- tainty that producing countries would take advantage of the slightly relaxed trade restric- tions. MIGHT fcHFP MORE evidence to have been produced before tne textiles board in one of its se- cret hearings was that some of the restricted countries dicated that later this year they will be able to ship substan- tially more than the agreed The board's made public by an aide to Industry Minister Alastair con- cludes that the yarn shortage not due primarily to the re- straint imposed 28 months ago on countries as Colombia and Brazil.

Forest Service sawlog scale for its scores of public sustained yield units in Nelson forest district in July was larg- est of the year for any month so far. The tally came to cubic feet. It brought the for- 'est district 1973 scale so far to cubic compared with cubic feet for the comparable period of 1972 when the all-time peak was reached. Spruce firmly resumed top species place with 7.5 cedar suddenly skyrocketed to 6.7 probably because of a woods clean-up in prepara- tion for Mica Darn. Fir at nearly six million and lodgepole at over five million jockeyed for third place in a very extraordinary species an- alysis. Continuing uncertainty in the industry over what the provin- cial department of lands and forests plans for assured pub- lic forest sales probably add- ed to heavy logging pressure.

Development costs rocketed and production of the engines under the terms of the original con- tract with Lockheed would have bankrupted Rolls. Instead the company went into receivership.
