Feder- ation of Labor to lift a boycott against Shoppers Drug Mart outlets in the province. The court dismissed an appli- cation from Cunningham Drugs asking for directions on who should start contempt pro- ceedings against the federation and its Ray because of a federa- tion bulletin of Aug. 14 which said it would continue its boy- cott against Shoppers thus defying an injunction granted by the court of appeal Aug. 7 ordering an end to the boycott. The federation boycott was called to support a strike by Local 1518 of the Retail Clerks which is seeking a first collective agreement with Shop- pers stores. There are 69 Shoppers outlets in operated by Cunning- hams and individual pharma- cists under a franchise agree- ment with Koffler Stores Toronto. Beef Futures WINNIPEG Live beef Mures dose Friday.

U.S. top world wheat supplier By DAVID MUTCH Christian Science Monitor 111. Behind the sudden jump in the price of U.S. wheat is a dramatic shift in the world In a matter of the U.S. has become virtually only major supplier of wheat on the international scene. Although estimates of a rec- ord American crop now have been grain stocks are also lower in all other large producing countries and worldwide demand for a better diet continues unabatad. Buying heavily in the U.S. market in the past weaks have and Formosa. Poland reportedly has bids out. USDA figures show grain export com- mitments for this year's crops in wheat and corn already ap- proach all of last year's. FREE ENTERPRISE The U.S. based largely on free enterprise prin- remains largely open to all who have the cash to and countries are doing just that. The outcome for the U.S. is that wheat prices the dol- lar the price of bread and serious talk on wheat export controls heightens. Other countries have already begun slapping on defensive export controls for wheat. The European Economic Commu- nity banned exports of both hard and soft wheat recently. rice exports had been banned. On Aug. 3 tradi- tionally an banned wheat exports with the an- nouncement of a 25 per cent shortfall in its coming Janu- ary crop. This puts this South Ameri- can country into buying in the U.S. market to make up the perhaps as much as tons of wheat for the year. a traditional exporter of has limited its exports and this will affect the U.S. market. In the face of these develop- on Aug. 9 the U.S. De- partment of Agriculture lower- ed its estimation of this year's grain production and said this will continue pressure on food prices. Before grain exports can be a shortage must be certified by the Secretary of Agriculture. The department is in the process of analyzing the latest crop estimates with the possibility of imposing export controls. In June the U.S. forced can- cellation of a number of soy- bean contracts when it banned export of the bean. Many traders caught by surprise- had to shift to lower yield con- tracts. Some grain traders say this move helped trigger more recent actions by other intent on conserving their do- mestic supplies of grain. In years past other nations that export grain have had the abundance of t h e U.S. market to fall back on. Conrad crop forecast- er and grain calls the present market be- cause of the potential for se- vere defensive moves in world trade. He says cancellation of the soybean contracts contri- buted to this. There is a chance Australia will have grain to export after the harvest of the Southern Hemisphere wheat in January. But as of now it isn't especially since last year wag A poor year. Both Australia and i Canada have wheat boards that can quietly hold gram off the market or mark it up espe- cially high. SURPLUS COMMITTED While Canada will be ship- ping its surpluses are largely and rail strikes are causing trouble. I Canada must complete ship- ments before winter closes its ports. The consid- ers the effect of this new popu- larity for American wheat. The effects Wheat prices on the three main U.S. markets and Kansas City set records 10 days in a row. In all three markets the daily limits which prices are allowed to rise have been raised to allow for trading in the booming market. Gold prices have slipped in the last three days and the dollar suddenly is stronger be- cause of American grain yield. World grain prices in effect are set in the U.S. which are watched by all of the world's grain traders. With wheat well over a bushel and pressure on fu- ture millers and bakers are pushing up prices. Bread already has jumped from 1 to 4 cents a loaf in many areas of the U.S. Millers had not antici- pated such great pressure to export wheat major cause of inflating U.S. prices. The Nixon administration is considering setting export limitations on U.S. al- though this would be a reversal of official policy. A basic goal of the adminis- tration has been to unleash completely the U.S. food pro- duction potential to increase the export market and thereby help the U.S. balance of pay- ments and bolster the dollar.
