Domestic interests gave steadiness to oats and barley while a little export buying in- terest gave strength to rye. There were no figures avail- able on export loadings of Ca- nadian wheat.

Minto has signed a contract with Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. of Japan to put 100 of the engines in 1972 Datsuns. P Rate Stagnant OTTAWA (CP) The gross national product ran at an an- nual rate of S83.192 million in April, May and June this year, up a narrow six-tenths of one per cent from the first quarter's million, the Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported today. In the second quarter of last year, the total value of all goods and services pro- duced by Canada, measured at the current purchasing power of the dollar-ran at mil- lion, and for the year 1939 as a whole it was million. The bureau said the second quarter of this year was marked by widespread easing of economic activity, reduced in- flationary pressure, and a sharp increase in unemployment. While ths increase for the sec- ond quarter wss six-tenths of one per cent, compared with 2.2 per cent in the first quarter, prices rose in tie second quarter by five-tenths, or one- half of one per cent compared with a one-per-cent rise in the firs' quarter of the year. This was a marked slow-down in price inflation from the in- crease of 1.6 per cent which oc- curred in the last three months of 1969. Discounting the rise in prices, the gross national product for the second quarter in real or uninflated terms was virtually stagnant, rising only two-tenths of one psr cent. DBS said the second-quarter slow-down appeaix-d to be an abrupt change, coming in the wake of the larger increase in the first quarter. But the econ- omy's strength in January, Feb- ruary ant' March reflected an unusual surge of exports to overseas countries resulting from a number of temporary factors. This tended to obscure weak- nesses that were developing in the first quarter in consumer expenditure and investment spending. These weaknesses continued in the second quarter when there was no further sig- nificant boost in exports. The million gross na- tional product for the second quarter this year represented a per capita output of com- pared with in the first quarter 2nd in the second quarter of last year. In terms of the 1961 dollar, used as a basis for comparing uninflated GNP, the gross na- tional product in the second quarter of this year was run- ning at 664 million, com- pared with million in the first quarter and million in the second quarter of last year. On a per-capita basis, the GNP in the latest three-month period was in 1961 dol- lars, compared with in the first quarter of 1970 and in the second quarter of last year. 37.87V2 Texas Co ........32.00 127.00 Wootoorih 33.62Vi 30 Indus! 755.75 up 10.K General Motors Weslinshouse Elec 63.62VJ 20 Rails 132.08 up 1.48 Gulf 29.25 U.S. Steel 15 Utilities 101J2 up 1.10 Harvester TORONTO AVERAGES 45 Stocks 23i.OO up 3.14 Kenn Copper 39.75 20 Indus! 157.87 up 1.30 Volume FOR RENT Building with Sq.
