Britain has a new Earl ot Tankerville: Charles Augustus Grey, 50, of San Francisco, where he works as a statisti- cian. Grey's father, the eighth earl, died last week at 74. The family seat is at Chil- lingham in Northumberland, 15 miles south of Berwick on the border between England and Scotland. Chillingham is famous for its herd of wild, white cat- tle, which have roamed its 365- acre park for 700 years. The new earl inherits Chil- Ibgham Castle, which dates to the 11th century, but the eighth earl handed over custody of the cattle to an association, to en- sure continuation of the herd and avoid death duties. Grey, who took the name Charles Ossulston when he ar- rived in San Francisco 20 years go, said he "may not go" to live in England. He said shock at his father's death has not enabled him to plan yet. for the future.

No gloom evident on holiday scene By THE CANADIAN PRESS A high rate of unemployment and a somewhat gloomy eco- nomic outlook across Canad; don't appear to be diminishing Canadians' Christmas Christmas spending. Retailers across the country are predicting sales increases this season over a year ago of anywhere from five to 20 per cent. Crowds of early shoppers in some parts of the counlrj forced some merchants to reor- der from wholesalers before the end of November. Tire demand has been particularly heavy for such major items as color tele- vision sets and snowblowers. Demand varies from province to province. In Prince Edwan Island, for instance, sales of women's fashions are slow while in New Brunswick, retail- ers report exceptional in creases. In Nova Scotia, merchants ex pect sales volume to, increase by five to 10 per cent. In On tario, increases may be as much as 15 per cont. And a spokesman for Canadian Tire Corp. Ltd., which has more than 250 associate stores between Manitoba and the East Coast says his firm expects to be "al least 20 per cent ahead of lasl Christmas" in sales. OF MONEY' "There's a lot of money around, and people seem to be going for more expensive, qual- ity says one re- tailer in Western Canada. In Ottawa, retailers say sales this year are without preceden1 and expected to improve when federal civil servants receive last paycheques before Christmas. The weather over most of the country as been unseasonably warm. Because of tlu's, many in Alberta and been stow getting into the spirit. But it also means that retailers of Christmas trees have been able to get into the woods and plan- tations and trees are generally in good supply. The price of trees starts as low as in some parts of the Marittmes and Newfoundland, at to in other parts of the country. ___. that's what the new ERNINA is all about!

Those who wish to cut their own trees can do so readily and cheaply. TREES ARE FREE About 90 per cent of New- foundland's area is Crown- owned wilderness, and trees are free for the taking. On the Prai- ries, a nominal charge of 25 or 50 cents is usually made. In some parts of Ontario, land- owners are charging to city dwellers out for their own tree. In Vancouver, a large and ex- ceptionally well-shaped tree can go for as much as the lower end of the price scale for artifi- cial trees. The artificial trees are selling well in Nova Scotia at to and some merchants had to reorder before the end of Nov- ember. Almost every community in Canada has some form of spe- cial entertainment planned, from such elaborate works as Handel's Messiah to simple pag- eants and plays. But a perfect Christmas needs a break from the weatherman. Tiie weather is anybody's guess because there is no long-range holiday forecast. EDMONTON (CP) Cana- dians have no desire to subsid- ize dairy production so milk can be sold on the world market at a loss, says William Woo1.- frey of Medicine Hat. president of the Alberta Milk Producers Association. He was speaking at the an- nua Ulnifarm convention in fav- or of Alberta's participation in the national milk supply man- agement plan. Alberta milk pro- ducers will vote in January on whether to enter the plan. Milk and milk products in Canada are .subsidized by the federal government, but sur- plus milk production has to be exported, usually at large loss- es, he said. CAN'T BE DONE If Canadian producers had to compete with world milk prices, it would mean the farmers would have to produce milk at about 114 cents a quart, he said. "It can't be done." Under the proposed national milk supply management plan, the domestic market demand is established and this market then is divided into shares for each producer based on his past production record, he said. "If he wants to produce more than that level, then he accepts (lie world market prices." Mr. YVoolfrey said the milk producers had no interest in short supplying the domestic market, as some detractors of the plan had suggested. He also that, contrary to some suggestions. Alberta is not deficient in dairy products and can supply enough for its own needs. It is the third largest provin- cial producer, he said. Ontario and Quebec produce about 80 per cent of national needs. However. Alberta does export to British Columbia and occas- ionally imports from Quebec to meet its own needs at certain times, he said. Securities commissions get tough o TORONTO (CP) Securities commissions in Ontario and Western Canada have tightened regulations concerning report- ing by corporations of material changes in their affairs. A statement released here said the new regulation will re- quire companies to report to the securities commission. Pre- viously, companies could report either to the commission or the sleek exchange listing their sh.ircs. Companies will ho required to report on such matters as pro- posed t a k e o v o r s, mergers, amalgamnlions or changes in capitalization.
