CP pilots settled TORONTO (CPi Canadian Pacific Air pilots have reached a settlement in contract negotiations allowing for pay increases ranging from 14 to about 35 per cent in a 14-month agreement, it was announced Friday. Top pay for about 30 senior pilots flying CP Air's jumbo jets will rise to about a year next April from the cur- rent Biggest percentage increases will go to second officers and junior first officers who now get from to a month The contract goes into effect Sept. 1 CP Air's 640 pilots will be the first in Canada to enjoy a guarantee that they will be paid for the total number of hours they are scheduled to fly each month At present, if a plane fails to take oft. they get no pay for that flight. Meanwhile, in Montreal, the Canadian Air Line Pilots Association, who also negotiated lor the CP Air pilots, have broken off talks on behalf of 1.200 Air Canada pilots who have been trying for a settlement for five months Rebel growers open warehouse BURNABY, B.C. (CP) After a two-year campaign for changes in British Columbia fruit marketing laws, rebel fruit growers now have to put Miners 'mourn' CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) Coal miners began a weeklong work stoppage today at mines producing more than three-quarters of the coal in the United States, an action that will deplete already low stockpiles at steel mills and power plants. Union leaders are calling it a memorial period, a device in the current United Mine Workers contract intended to allow the miners mourning without those killed in mine accidents. But this memorial period, which began at midnight Sun- day night, comes at a time when coal-using industries would like to be building their stockpiles in preparation for a possible strike when the UMW contract expires Nov. 12. U.S. Steel, the largest U.S. producer of steel and a heavy coal consumer, reported last week that its stockpiles were down to 14 days' supply. Jones and Laghlin, sixth ranked, said its stockpiles were "already too low for the operation levels required by the strong steel market." The stoppage will make idle about UMW members and close an estimated underground and surface mines in about a dozen states. It will cost the U.S. about nine million tons of coal, said the Bituminous Coal Operators' Association, the industry group that negotiates with the UMW, and will cost miners million in lost wages. A side easily the most volatile a UMW drive to establish a union beachhead in eastern Kentucky with a strike against the Brookside Mining Co., a subsidiary of the Duke Power Co. Negotiations for a contract there are deadlocked and the strike has been marked by sporadic incidents Of violence. Because it would be consid- ered an illegal secondary boy- cott, the union cannot openly describe the shutdown as put- ting pressure on the coal in- dustry to support its drive at Brookside. Timber record KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) The superintendent of the Flathead national forest in Montana says receipts from timber sales set a record in the federal fiscal year just completed. Ed Corpe said the timber sales generated more than million in revenue, with about 25 per cent scheduled for distribution to counties within the area of the forest. The money goes to support schools and to maintain roads. up or shut up. For the first time in 35 years, a wholesale and retail warehouse has opened to market fruit outside the confines of B.C. Tree Fruits Ltd., a marketing organization that until May was the only legal selling outlet for fruit growers. Bert Hume, a professional fruit grower and president of the Okanagan Valley rebel group Allied Growers Ltd., has been behind the organization's struggle to break what it says was a government sponsored stranglehold on the Okanagan fruit industry. "We are now at the stage where we have to put up or Grain bin takeover suggested VANCOUVER (CP) Grain workers Monday urged justice Minister Otto Lang to recall parliament and legislate the takeover of grain elevators here. In a telegram sent by Grain Workers Local 333, the workers suggested the elevators be brought under the control and ownership of the Canadian Wheat Board. It described the wheat pools as "unnecessary and inefficient oligarchies" and complained they have created bottlenecks in the export of wheat. shut up." he said in a recent interview. "We have been saying for two years that our way is the best: that the stranglehold on the industry by the B.C. tree fruits organization is costing the grower money to sell his crops. "Now that (Agriculture Minister Dave) Mr. Stupich has given us the opportunity to opt out of the system and sell the fruit we grow in our own way we have the chance to show the industry that what we have been saying for the past two years is right." The warehouse opened in this Vancouver suburb last week and early indications are the growers might just be successful. M. M. Papan, director of the Carribean Trading and Shipping Corporation, the company managing the warehouse, said "it's too early to tell how things will work out." "But first indications are very encouraging. We have been very busy since we opened and the volume is growing every day." Mr. Hume said the benefit to the consumer can be seen immediately. "Under the established system, apples are sold on the lower mainland for between 29 and 39 cents a he said. "The grower gets back five cents a pound but it costs him nine cents to grow that pound of apples The government makes up most of the loss. "Under our system, the same-grade pound of apples sells for between 24 and 27 cents a pound. We make a clear profit, after the growing costs have been deducted, of two cents a pound. "We make a satisfactor, profit, the custo'tier gets a cheaper pound apples and he doesn t 'n pav 'or his apples twice because mere is nu government suosidy in- volved." In addition to streamlining the price, the organization has also started to change packaging and marketing methods. Mr. Hume said the use of a different cover on apple boxes has already resulted in a substantial saving. In their crusade tor marketing changes, Mr Hume and other Allied Growers members have challenged Victoria, led a rebel fruit caravan from the Okanagan to Vancouver to sell fruit directly to the public and spent time in jail. Last May. the B.C. government said growers who wished to opt out of the established marketing system could do so without penalty. The majority of Okanagan growers elected to stay with the system because of the government income stabilization plan, he said. Lumber relief sought VICTORIA (CP) Representatives of the Interior Lumber Manufacturers' Association will meet with Bob Williams, British Columbia resources minister here this week to seek relief from costs hurting the forest industry. Al Macdonald, secretary manager of the Penticton based association, would not specify the type of relief being sought from the provincial government, but said former administrations had taken action in the past to relieve industry of the immediate and full brunt of such burdens. If the soft market continues it is really going to be a bad business for the whole he said. Mr. Macdonald said the in- dustry is being hit hard by weak lumber markets, increased costs notably the recent International Woodworkers of America wage settlements and ine- quities in the stumpage appraisal system. More than B.C. forest industry workers face layoffs as the worldwide demand for lumber continues to crop. Oil bills prompt heavy borrowing WASHINGTON (AP) Britain, France and Italy borrowed heavily in the Euro- Currency market during the first six months of the year, in part to pay their oil bills. New figures from the World Bank Sunday showed that bor- rowing of Euro-currency funds in the first half of 1974 totalled billion, close to the total of billion borrowed in all of 1973. The big increase in borrowing was chiefly by developed countries, whose share of total publicized borrowing increased to 66 per cent in the first half of 1974 from 51 per cent in 1973. Total borrowing by developed countries was billion, compared with billion for all of 1973. Britain arranged for the big- gest loans. billion, followed by France. 9 billion, and Italy. billion. The borrowing of these three countries accounted for 76.2 per cent of total borrowing of developed countries. The Euro-currency market refers to funds which are lent internationally, primarily in Europe. Transactions formerly were largely in surplus United States dollars held in European banks, but other currencies lately have been included. The new World Bank figures on lending activity in the first six months were reported in the latest issue of the IMF Survey, a publication of the International Monetary Fund (IMFi. The figures referred to loans which had been arranged for. and did not reflect whether the loans had actually been taken and the use to which it was put. They also included publicized loans.
