Dollar irmer LONDON (Reuter) The United States dollar opened firmer today against Euro- pean currencies on the London foreign exchange markets. Dealers said this reflected speculation that President Nixon would resign. A resignation, they said, would tend to restore confidence in the dollar. The dollar opened at 2.5960 against the deutschmark, up from Wednesday night's clos- ing of 2.5815-30 deutschmarks. Sterling weakened against the dollar to drop to from overnight. It was a six-week low for sterl- ing in dollar transactions. The Dutch guilder and the Swiss franc were also lower against the dollar. The U.S. political situation continued to have a subduing effect on the London stock market and there were no ma- jor trends in selling at the opening of business. Petroleum production OTTAWA (CP) Crude petroleum and natural gas production figures for April were released recently by Statistics Canada. Petroleum production aver- aged barrels a day, down by 1.9 per cent from the comparable 1973 figure of Gas production averaged 9.7 billion cubic feet a day, an increase of .6 per cent over 9.64 billion in the same period of 1973. Some say that his resigna- tion or removal from office, would have little effect on stocks, particularly in Can- ada. Although the market rose sharply Tuesday in a short- term reaction to signs that Mr. Nixon may resign, analysts agree that such prob- lems as international finan- cial and economic troubles, super-inflated interest rates and sluggish U.S. economic growth have to be solved. Here are some of their com- ments: Robert Stone of McEwen Securities Ltd: The American market went up in anticipation of Nixon's resignation. But if he goes the long to trial before the market will tend to fall during that time. If he's impeached, the market should rally, but only that. The big thing on the market is not Nixon, or Watergate, it's interest rates, inflation and the international liquidity crisis (cash shortage) we're in right now. Nixon's just a blip on the screen. Caroline Silsbury of McLeod, Young, Weir and Co. Ltd.: I think if Nixon did go there would be an initial short jump upwards, but then it would go into an orderly de- cline. In other words, there won't be any long-range ef- fects. Things will sort themselves out when the successor's pol- icy becomes known. The Ca- Chieftain shares up EDMONTON (CP) -Chief- tain Development Co. Ltd. has reported net earnings of 065 or 6.7 cents a share for the first half of 1974, compared to or 3.9 cents for the same period in 1973. Crude oil export charge unchanged Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA-The National Energy Board has decided that the federal export charge on crude oil will remain at a barrel during September. And NEB officials predicted Wednesday that unless there is a significant change in world oil prices during the coming months, the federal export charge on crude oil is not expected to increase. Meanwhile, the government is still studying the possibility of changing, probably lowering, the export charge on refined products, such as gas- oline produced on the Prairies and fuel oil refined in Sarnia, made from domestic crude oil. Some refiners have com- plained that the a barrel export charge has priced Canadian refined products out of the traditional U.S. market. A decision is expected within a week. And in a related matter, the government is also still study- ing recent industry proposals' to eliminate temporarily Canadian import tariffs on ethylene glycol antifreeze from the U.S. Domestic' production is expected to suf- fer a slight shortfall this season and prices will be about three times the prices last winter. Eliminating the import tariff would make it more economical to import from the U.S. the quantities needed to make up any regional or local shortfalls. The major ethylene glycol manufacturers in Canada are hesitant to support even a temporary suspension of the tariff, fearing it might be dif- ficult to have the charge re- imposed once this winter's an- ticipated supply problems are overcome. nadian market follows the same pattern as the Ameri- can, but to a lesser degree. It tends to respond mainly with drastic changes in the U.S. market. Any talk of Nixon's resignation as the cure-all is simply silly. Norman Sheaby ot Moss., Lawson and Co. Ltd: In the short-term, par- ticularly, the Canadian market performance is large- ly dependent on the American market We're really talk- ing the same thing. The feeling is that a quick, clean resignation would have a short-term positive effect. But it's not an overriding fac- tor in the market. It was, until last July. Since then, the resolution of the matter is regarded as posi- tive, no matter how it's done. If he goes, there would be a brief, psychological rally, but nothing sustained. The market's close to bot- toming out. I think, and by late fall, early winter, we should be back to a bull mar- ket. Even though a (Gerald) Ford caretaker U.S. govern- ment may be a desirable op- tion, it would not have a sus- tained reaction. Impeachment doesn't direct the market, nor does the length of the process enter into our formula: The market operates regardless of the po- litical scene There would be some uncertainty if Ford com- es into office, but at least it's a new ball game. Clare Toles of Walwyn. Sod- gell and Gardiner Ltd: Per- sonally. I think they'll close the markets for 24 hours if Nixon does resign. There would be a sizable bounce if they were open. But Nixon and Watergate is only about five per cent of the problem, the other 95 per cent is the world- wide money crisis, inflation and related factors. Feed corn futures commence trading WINNIPEG (CP) Trading in Canadian feed corn futures will begin at 11 a.m. CDT Monday at the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange. Ronald S. Ennis, president of the exchange, said today the board of governors has authorized the new futures for Montreal as delivery point in contract months of December 1974 and March, May and July 1975. A September market is expected to be added next year. Trading will be in 5.000 bushel board lots and bushel job lots with the daily price fluctuations limited to 10 cents a bushel. Although trading will take place from the floor in Win- nipeg, the exchange will be linked by voice and other com- munications equipment to of- ficial ceremonies in Chatham. Ont. heartland of Canada's corn production. Contract grade is No. 2 Canada eastern yellow corn with delivery privilege of a higher grade of No. 3 Canada eastern vellow at a three cents a bushel discount. Canadian corn tendered for delivery on futures contracts will be based on Canadian Grain Commission erade cer- tificates issued at time of un- loading in Montreal. Delivery privileges also include No. 2 U.S. duty-paid corn and No. 3 U.S. duty-paid corn at three cents a bushel discount. All U.S. corn tendered for delivery on the futures contract will be based on official grade certificate at the U.S. loading port. The standard unit of weight ol corn for contract delivery is 56 pounds a bushel. Mr. Ennis said the addition of corn futures rounds out the exchange's role in the federal government's feed grains policy which provides for un- restricted interprovincial movement of domestic grains for animal feed used in Canada at prices determined by supply and demand. The exchange introduced futures contracts for Cana- dian feed wheat, oats and barley on Julv 25. roccssnq (St ms 1003 4th Avenue South, Lethbridge Telephone 329-4426 erviccs EXCITING OPPORTUNITY!
