one ounce gold bars Monday, giving the small investor another way of combatting inflation Joseph Kolton manager for Zantrex Investment Corp said the company will initially release 200 ounces of gold bullion in one-ounce quantities to test demand for the small bars Mr Kolton said the demand is expected to be quite good He said the gold will be sold about ten per cent above the fluctuating market price because of the costs involved in minting smaller quantities Cement produce capacity behind EDMONTON (CP) An unforeseen demand for cement in Alberta has put the province s two major producers at least one year behind in creating plant capaciu to fill the needs of the construction industry, a cement industry spokesman said Monday W S Bannister, president of Inland Cement Industries, says his company and Canada Cement Lefarge "badly miscalculated the rate of growth of the market in Alberta Because of the industry's nature no immediate increases in production are Ottawa streamlines egg market method OTTAWA (CP) The federal and provincial governments will streamline egg marketing operations in an attempt to "restore order" to national egg markets, Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan said Monday Both levels of government have agreed to centralize marketing authority to produce better management ot the national egg marketing plan, Mr Whelan said in a prepared statement He said the outlines of the agreement were settled at a July 26 federal-provincial agriculture ministers' meeting in Winnipeg He said the approach, which was not spelled out in detail, includes both long-term and interim measures to improve the administration and operation of the national egg production and marketing system run by the Canadian Empress staff votes on strike VICTORIA (CP) Empress Hotel employees will take a strike vote Wednesday in support of un- disclosed contract demands made to CP Hotels A spokesman for the tran- sport workers union hotel division said 350-400 employees of The Empress would be eligible to vote He said negotiations had been carried on over the past six to eight weeks and would not confirm a report that staff were seeking a raise There had been an under- taking not to discuss contract negotiations publicly, he said Foil jobs fold up egg marketing agency The goal ol the plan will remain the same to produce a steady supply of top quality eggs at reasonable Mr Whelan said He said the provinces will ensure that provincial egg marketing boards implement their part of the plan, including their responsibility for orderly marketing and production He said the federal government has agreed to use part of the budget set aside for the world food program to buy eggs and egg products from the Canadian marketing agency to supply people in deprived countries Mr Whelan said the purchase will not be a subsidy but part of Canada's commitment to the world food program He said the government will pa> the world price for top quality eggs and egg products to the marketing agency leaving the agency responsible for any losses it incurs in paying fresh market prices and storing the eggs or processing them into a less valuable product Harvest halted ALCOA Tenn (AP) The Aluminum Co of America an- nounced Monday it will dis- continue production of house- hold aluminum foil, which it marketed under the name Alcoa Wrap The company said it is dis- continuing foil production for household use because of a metal shortage It said it will continue making heavy-duty foil for industrial and in- stitutional use Approximately 100 employees of the firm's plant here will be affected, but some will be transferred to other jobs, the company said in a statement CALGARY (CP) Harvesting in southern and south-central Alberta was halted this week by more than one inch of rain, the Alberta Wheat Pool said Monday in its weekly crop report The lain halted fall crop threshing and spring crop swathing operations in the areas and, for most crops in Southern Alberta, the rain came too late to fill the heads The heaviest rain, which averaged 3 1 inches fell in the Claresholm and Cardston districts The Red Deer area received of an inch while it averaged one inch in the Stettler-Wamwnght region About inch fell in the Peace River area while northern regions received of an inch or less during the week Threshing of fall seeded crops was nearly complete in the southern districts with the swathing of spring crops general south of Calgary where most of the progress was in rapeseed However, the Pool said, swathing was not expected to be general until the first week of September Little damage was expected from early frosts and a return to warm weather for two weeks would see crop maturity and harvesting progress rapidly, the Pool said possible, Mr Bannister said However, Canada Lefarge plans to complete a major addition to its Exshaw plant within a year, and Inland is conducting studies aimed at increasing production by 30 per cent in the next four or five years You cannot vary production in a plant the size ot a full-scale cement plant You wait until you have reached 90 per cent capacity, then put in another major installation and take the loss for a few years until the demand catches Mr Bannister said "Right now we have to wait as much as three years for the equipment needed to increase capacity Additions are a long- term thing and we just miscalculated Mr Bannister said that the two companies often buy and sell to each other in various areas of the country to maintain supply Inland now is importing cement from Regina and British Columbia If a customer wants to buy from us, we will find the cement he said Although there is a shortage, some contractors are making things worse bv becoming panicky or hoarding he 'aid He said to the best of his knowledge no major project will be hurt by the shortages Cattle champ VANCOUVER (CP) W T Bennett of Connell, Wash Mondav took the senior and grand champion Hereford bull championships

Air president renews route beef OTTAWA (CP) CP Air President John Gilrner renewed his airline's complaint Monday that it was badly treated when the government handed out its latest route assignments The government recently granted 14 of 18 new routes to the United States to govern- ment-owned Air Canada CP Air got to Los Angeles Mr Gilmer says he could understand that from a socialist government, but cannot believe "it is the reasoned judgment of this government Private regional earners got two of the U S routes and the others have not been allocated Mr Gilmer also told report- ers during his first visit to Ot- tawa in nearly two years that Washington took the upper hand in air-route negotiations with Canada While Canadian carriers got 18 new routes, U S airlines got 28 He said the Canadian negotiators suftered from changes in leadership and failure to demand a high enough price for U S demands including pre- clearance through U S customs which is a boon to U S carriers The CP Air chief said his line should be given rights to "serve San Francisco and Los Angeles from Edmonton and Calgary to fly Montreal to Halifax and to run a Montreal Toronto San Francisco route Mr Gilmer
