This would have made it much more simple and less expensive for crushing plants.'' Mr. Redden said the Western Canadian agriculture industry is doing itself a disservice when it sells abroad raw materials it could process in Canada. Products like rapeseed should only be sold in meal or oil form. This has been recognized by an encouraging trend among governments to place more em- phasis on domestic processing. With the cost of feed supple- ments rapeseed meal has been bringing a return com- parable to that of oil. It used to bring about one-quarter that amount. Harvest scene With autumn approach- a combine near don sets to work on the grain harvest. Total prai- rie wheat yield this year is expected to be slightly below the 10-year average of 600 million bushels. Grain quotes CHICAGO Grain quotations Sep Dec Mar May Jul 3.35.

The general pattern is a stop- go one short bursts of rapid economic growth choked off by a widening trade deficit and a deflationary bud- get. It has become depressing- ly familiar since World War II. And it has led to a belief that any economic expansion is good to a belief that has invariably proved correct. The all-too-familiar scenario seems to be emerging again. At the with industry run- ning short of spare the balance-of-payments deficit increasing and inflation begin- ning to accelerate. The government is up against a difficult task. It is clearly de- termined to if it pos- sibly a return to the stop- go phenomenon. But it is not easy to con- vince British industrialists and consumers to ignore those who say that there will have to be a deflationary budget in the au- tumn. For this the govern- ment has moved gingerly in trying to curb inflation. It has tried as did President Nixon before it to combine those two rapid growth and stable by relying almost entirely on a price-wage program. The British policy has so far been almost a carbon copy of the American Phase 1 and Phase 2. There was a statutory freeze from November to April on wages and almost all prices. The second phase has allowed small wage control- led profit margins and the pass- ing on by manufacturers of cost increases resulting from allow- able wage and raw material rises. Talks have opened with the unions and the employers' association on the next stage. It seems certain to be both tough and mandatory. Pres- ident Nixon's experience with his Phase 3 has not passed un- noticed. Apart from wage price con- the government has done little to curb inflation. Indeed the massive increases it plans in public spending and its very large budget deficit have been Crows Nest Industries income up VANCOUVER Net income of Crows Nest Indus- tries Ltd. of in the first six months this year was or per ex- ceeding the total for all of 1972 which was the company's best This compares with or per share in the first half of J972.

Earlier this the govern- ment did make some relatively small cuts in planned spending. But it has been worried since tlien by the difficulty the Bank of England has had in selling government debt to the non- bank public. The money supply has be- gun to increase rapidly. The government until re- sisted increasing interest rates because of both the electoral unpopularity of making house mortgages and bank loans more and also the danger that industry would re- gard higher interest rates as the start of another squeeze. But when last week new and alarming figures on expansion of the money supply coincided with a steep rise in foreign in- terest rates and an accelerat- ing slide in the value of the the Bank of England fi- nally stepped in. Friday saw a rise in the mini- mum lending rate the suc- cessor to the bank rate and the rough equivalent of the federal reserve's discount rate by a massive 2.5 points to a record level of per cent. Anthony chancellor of the immediately issued a insisting that economic growth remained a key priority and that there would be no autumn budget. The slide in the pound's ex- change rate was checked on Friday night with the help of market purchases by the cen- tral bank. But It is hard to be sure of the prospects for it over the months for the un- certainties about where the British economy is going are greater than usual. Gold futures WINNIPEG Gold US.
