Small car sales higher Brokers9 circle Bidding moves fast as brokers make bids on New York Cocoa Exchange. DETROIT Spurred I by the gasoline small- sales are higher than ever and are expected to take the spotlight when the United States auto industry presents its 1974 models next nionth. General Chrys- ler and American Motors all put heavy emphasis on their new offerings at the lower-priced end of the line. The U.S. auto-makers sdd compact and sub-com- pact cars in the first seven months of an increase of over the same period last year. The small cars ac- counted for 29.3 per cent of U.S. domestic auto sales in the first seven months of this com- pared with 22.4 per cent in the same period of 1972. Small foreign cars also are selling well. The increases have occurred despite the U.S. dollar devaluation that made imports more expensive. U.S. manufacturers expressed confidence that their small-car offerings will blunt the inroads of foreign cars into the U.S. market. There was general agreement among them that the foreign-car share of the U.S. which reached 15 per cent in 1970 and 13.3 per cent last will be reduced next year. The U.S. auto firms also in- tensified studies of alternate power such as Wankel. a German-developed engine Oat has only one-third as many half the size and half the weight of a comparable piston engine. In 1970. General Motors paid the first instalment of what could be a S50-million payment for the right to use the Wankel engines worldwide. In 26 firm reached agreement with Wankel on possible future use of the en- jgine.

The 10- cent chocolate bar isn't what it used to be. For one it shrank. And pretty soon it probably won't be 10 cents. Changes like these come about because of soaring prices for cocoa beans and other in- gredients In the wafer of choc- olate. to go one step the high prices for cocoa beans are due to turbulent interna- tional monetary poor crop and wild speculation on commodities markets. what hap- pened in the cocoa market this year in a broader sense is typical of almost the entire spectrum of international com- including sil- and plati- num. The combined effects of un- certainty surrounding the value of following dollar devaluations and almost con- tinuous weakness of the green- back the rise of spec- ulative commodity and the inability of the producing nations to supply inflation-rich consumers have created in- tense upward pressures on prices. like other commodi- became a haven for tfcc- ulators who did not desire to keep their money in weakening dollars. It has been said that some Middle East interests have invested heavily in cocoa. Some other peculiar aspects of the cocoa market this year have included costly specula- tion by some people who should have known better that the cocoa trade. Because of the ballooning and a belief could not stay high for at least one British choco- Rowntree Mackin- got heavily involved with speculating the price vyoiild and it lost mil- lion on what it later termed cocoa Another British Fer- guson Wild and Co.. fa subsidi- ary of William Baird and saw a loss of million be- cause of what it called cocoa trading by its commodity department. 'Practise ivhat you EDMONTON A bot- tle oE with two price labels earned a city man to criticize the Alberta Govern- ment for not practising what it preaches. The who did not want his name to be said be noticed two price labels on a bottle of Winzertanz he was pouring at a barbecue. The bot- tom tag said The tag on the top said Consumer Affairs Minister Bob Dowling has condemned the practice of putting labels with higher prices on top of old labels. The lower-priced stock should be used up be- fore new prices are implement- he said. The minister asked Albertans to call his department if they noteed such abuses. The man who found the double-priced bottle said that if the government is going to complain should be pre- pared to make sure their liquor stores follow the same rules. American chocolatemake r thus far have not reported any losses because of speculation. But they complain that the as- tronomical prices of cocoa beans combined with the Phase price freeze left them with smaller profits. The only way they can cope with the prob- some analysts is to reduce the size and increase the price of the candy bars. one broker on tbt floor of the Cocoa Exchange good is it if you give the public a skinny In that is one o it the major problems facing the in- dustry in the United States. The public always seems to notice the shrinking chocolate bar all at once and refuses to buy it. Earlier in the year Peter of announced a price hike to IS osnts 50 MI its Mounds and Almond Joy can- dies while increasing the size by only 17 percent. Phase forced the company to postpone the increases. At this Peter Paul says it doesn't know what it will do. It the trade magazines believe the 10-cent chocolate bar is on its way to the history books. Also early in the year Her- shey Foods Her- reduced the size of its 10-cent bar to 1.26 ounces from 1.38 ounces. Because this came prior to the the reduction stuck. But since the beginning of the year prices of cocoa beans imported raw product not covered by price have doubled. They have tripled in price since and 'now cocoa for September de- livery sells for a record 85 cents a up from March's 35 cents a pund. One of the reasons for record prices is drought conditions in West Africa and where the majority of cocoa beans are grown. Cocoa production ia estimated at 1.4 million down from 1.5 million tons a year ago. At the same time consumption of cocoa has risen. According to the June report of Gill and an Interna- tional cocoa concern based in in April details of the greatly increased first- quarter grindings amount of processed in the and the United Kingdom became This increase spur- red aided by increased buying interest by Eastern European nations and the So- viet the firm notes.
