At the same time, the Labor government is reported to be studying a kind of grand strategy for restoring the economy's long-term health which, if successfully enacted, may prove of value to other Western countries facing similar problems. Outlining the size of Britain's present crisis, Chancellor of the Exchequer Denis Healey recently told the Commons that never before had the country faced such monumental economic dif- ficulties in peacetime. The outlook, he said, had darkened noticeably even in the short period of the last two months. During the next year, incomes would certainly not increase and might even fall. The immediate cause of the trouble is a roaring rate of in- flation, now at about 18 per cent a year and expected to reach 25 per cent next year. This in turn has undermined business confidence and investment, made exports less competitive and spurred trade unions to seek wage gains to protect their future earnings against erosion from price increases. Part of the increased infla- tion rate is due to the climb in the price of oil, of which Bri- tain is a major importer. But to deal with domestical- ly-generated inflation, the government is giving major attention to a plan proposed by its own advisers and by a number of outside economists. WASHINGTON (CP) Fif- teen economists from Japan, Western Europe and North of them a Canadian-are forecasting that current high prices for primary commodities "are unlikely to last."

The experts reached their conclusions after a study published today by the Brookings Institution. The institution is a private- ly funded, non profit organization involved in research and education in economics, government, foreign policy and the social sciences generally. The study brought together 15 private experts in Japan last fall The Canadian among them was Grant Reuber of London, Ont, dean of social science at the University of Western Ontario "We see nothing in the record to support the claim that in the foreseeable through the end of this world will be threatened by real and radical commodity shortages of minerals, food, or other primary their report states "Potentially available re- sources are more than ade- quate and the trend toward continuing technological ad- vance is strong." As for commodity prices in real terms, the "high prices of mid-1974 are unlikely to the report says. "In the me- dium and long term, a sharply upward trend could not be sus- tained, although a slow up- ward drift is conceivable." However, the report iden- tifies what it calls "some serious dangers in the present commodity and suggests measures to deal with them. "Without remedial action, temporary shortages could oc- cur more frequently in the fu- ture, fostering nationalistic efforts to safeguard primary commodity supplies by sub- sidizing high-cost domestic production, by pre-empting foreign supplies and markets through bilateral deals, or by resort to export controls And despite an optimistic forecast concerning the global food balance, the experts pre- dict that "continuing severe food shortages in south Asia, Sahelian Africa and other areas will test the world's ability to organize its efforts to help poor countries." Proposals for dealing with these problems include- new un- ilateral export controls and export taxes by negotiating rules that would subject the imposition of such controls to international surveillance and countervailing pressures internationally supervised stockpiles of selected minerals to offset possible supply interruptions, and of cereals to provide emergency famine relief jnd to prevent runaway price increases if crops fail NOTICE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE HOLIDAY SCHEDULE REFUSE COLLECTION DATE DECEMBER 21 DECEMBER 23 DECEMBER 24 DECEMBER 30 DECEMBER 31 JANUARY 2 RESIDENTIAL COLLECTION Regular Monday Regular Tuesday Regular Wednesday Regular Thursday plus Monday Regular Friday plus Tuesday Regular Wednesday plus Thursday DECEMBER 24 DECEMBER 26 COMMERCIAL Central Business District Larger Commercial Outlets RESTAURANTS SANITARY LANDFILL HOURS DECEMBER 25 DECEMBER 26 JANUARY 1 Closed Closed Closed CHRISTMAS TREE CLEARANCE STARTS TONIGHT AT P.M.
