Sugar futures, down 14 cents a pound in the last two weeks, gained about 1 cent under a good demand. Among farm commodity futures, grains improved as did pork bellies and livestock. Wheat, corn and soybeans gained from 3 to 11 cents a bushel. Oats were mixed. Soybean meal was up about a ton but soybean oil closed on an irregular tone after early gains of up to 50 points, of "4 cent a pound. Iced broilers gained about Vz cent a pound, largely on demand associated with higher red meat futures prices. The ISO-point gain in pork belly futures, a limit move, followed a light movement of supplies to storage and firm cash prices. Live hogs gained up to 25 a hundredweight on improved grain prices and a more stable cash market Live cattle rose up to a hundredweight, soybeans were 4Vz to 11 cents a bushel higher.

NEW YORK (AP) The gov- ernment's report of a big jump in un- employment last month helped to drive stock market prices broadly lower again Friday, with the pace of selling accelerating a bit.

Dr. Gordon Burton of Clare- sholm, Alta., told 600 delegates to the union's an- nual meeting that Canadians could be eating good beef at lower prices and helping producers if packing houses and retailers would use cow meat. He said there is a huge sur- plus of a tew years ago when grain produc- tion was cut back in favor of this could be ab- sorbed if major food stores could be persuaded to carry cow beef. "It could retail at prices be- tween two-thirds and one-half lower than the prices charged for Grade A Dr. Burton said later in an inter- view. But his reception by the delegates was not enthusiastic. The NFU has advocated that, to ease the surplus meat situation, beef be canned and supplied as food aid. When Dr. Burton suggested that Cana- dians could "eat their way out" of the surplus, he was subjected to boos. After Dr. Burton outlined the activities of the board since its appointment by the federal government in May, 1973, a question period left no doubt that the delegates re- jected it. One delegate called the board a propaganda arm of the food processing and retail- ing industry. He was told that the review board's reports on the profits of retail food chains were a "whitewash" and did not reveal the true profits of the firms. Dr. Burton advocated an open market system while the NFU is dedicated to im- plementing collective x bargaining for farmers to ob- tain just prices for their products.

WASHINGTON (AP) -The United States government took steps Thursday to reduce a sudden bean bulge brought on by a record harvest this year. Meanwhile, at the super- market, many consumers still were paying some of the highest retail bean prices on record. There was a small crop in 1973 and officials say many stores have not yet restocked shelves with cheaper new- crop beans. The agriculture department said it plans to buy an un- specified quantity of beans the dry kind for cooking for donation to schools and to needy families who get government commodities instead of food stamps. It also will make credit sales to foreign countries. And laughter and hoots greeted his statement that "competition controls the prices" of the goods and serv- ices farmers need to produce food. The NFU believes that farmers and consumers are being exploited by the large multi-national corporations which, through cartels, control prices. Earlier, delegates gave a warmer reception to Harold Homer of Regina who told them that abandonment of the 78-year-old Crowsnest Pass freight rates on grain would have a grave impact on the whole economy of the country. Mr. Horner. executive ad- visor on grain handling and transportation for the Saskatchewan government, said the loss of the rates would mean farmers would pay four times as much to move their grain to market. Delegates later adopted a resolution asking the federal government to expropriate Canadian Pacific Ltd. and for the merger of its rail operations with Canadian National Railways under single management. The policy called for maintenance of the Crowsnest rates on grain and special rates provided in the Maritimes, and that more emphasis be placed on rail transportation. The week-long convention ends today. WATKINSON, HANHART, DUDA OORCHAK Chartered Accountants 511 5th Street South Telephone 328-1741 LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA announce the admission to partnership of RICKG.
