Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, December 28, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID 15 Market higher trade in light TORONTO (CP) The To- ronto stock market edged frac- tionally higher in light mid- morning trading today. On index, industrials rose .15 to 172.90, base metals .22 to 89.50 and western oils 1.07 to 197.21. Golds lost 1.40 to 161.68. Volume by 11 a.m. was shares. Trust firm derelict iii duties TORONTO (CP) A Califor- nia widow, who has "suffered financially" on a income although her bachelor son is a millionaire, was awarded in- creased income here by the Ontario Supreme Court, which also found a London, Ont., trust company derelict in its duty toward her. Mr. Justice Donald A. Keith ruled that Canada trust Co. should have agreed to the re- quest of Virginia Woixhvorlh Smith to reinvest million in Imperial Oil shares in some- thing that would pay higher in- terest. Mrs. Smith, formerly of Mont- real and now of Palm Beach, gets the interest on one quarter of hev late husband's Im- perial common shares under the terms of his will. When her son assumed full control of the estate at age 21, he set up a trust agreement with the London firm, deposit- ing shares with instruc- tion that his mother be paid the interest until her death. He also directed that the stock should not be sold. Dividends from Imperial have been less than three per cent a year, meaning an income of about for Mrs. Smith in 1S68 and 1969. She asked the trust company in 1969 to sell the shares and invest the money in stocks paying higher interest, but the firm honored the son's directive. Mr. Justice Keith ordered re- moval of Canada Trust "for breach of trust" and appointed Canada Permanent Trust Co. as trustee of the trust fund.

WI1YNOT Canadian Press Business Editor The spectre of inflation still haunts most Canadian business men as they look into 1971. All hope for increased eco- nomic activity after a sluggish 1970.

TODGHAM Sees upturn plished without restarting the inflationary spiral. Here are some comments from leading businessmen for ls71: A. G. Sinclair, president, Canadian Manufacturers' Asso- ciation: A faster pace of eco- nomic activity with a real in- crease in gross national product CERTIFICATE COURSE IN MANAGEMENT DEVELOPMENT Lethbridge Program Spring Semester (January to April, 1971) COURSE: Business Organization and Administration INSTRUCTOR: Mr. Ralph Thrall, Jr., B.A., M.B.A. LECTURES: Each Monday evening, from 7-10 pm. commencing January 1971 PLACE: Room 209, Science Building FEE: payable wilh registration FURTHER INFORMATION: Office of Community Relations University of Lethbridge Telephone 328-7577 of about five per cent. But much of the impact of the eco- nomic upswing will be delayed and employment will fall short of desirable levels. Inflation is not a dead duck and recent wage settlements will work their way into prices in the months ahead. The key problem will be to keep inflation in rein while accelerating the rate of growth. A. R. Nielsen, chairman, Ca- nadian Petroleum Association: Federal government policies and the attitude of the Canadian people to foreign investment will be the key to development of Canada's crude oil and natu- ral gas potential in_the Arctic and offshore areas. By creating a hospitable investment climate and workable regulations, in- dustry activity in these areas could double the size of existing producing areas. S. Eric Johnson, president, National House Builders Asso- ciation: Residential Construction should aim at a record starts. Indications are that home ownership will become available on a much broader in- come basis than at any time in the past decade, especially for family housing. Interest rales should moderate slightly by mid year and this will stir apart- ment construction. Ron W. Todgham, president, Chrysler Canada Ltd.: North American type passenger cars should regain some of the mar- ket lost to r'tnports. Changes in government thinking regarding economic conditions in Canada indicate tha' perhaps tile econ- omy has reached its low point and is due for an upturn. Jerry McAfee, president, Gulf Oil Canada Ltd.: Canadian production of crude oil and equivalent hydrocarbons should increase about 12 per cent for the second consecutive year. Total exports should show a gain of more than 20 per cent. J. R. Kimbcr, president, To- ronto Stock Exchange: The ground has been prepared for economic growth but expansion- ary movement must be tem- pered with some restraint. An- other spiral of inflation must be avoided but present rates of un- employment cannot be ignored. Charles Neapole, president of the lonireal and Canadian Stock Exchanges: The economy needs expansionary policies and the most effective manner to get the ball rolling would be re- duction in takes. Eastern Can- ada, including Quebec, needs extensive infusion of capital to spark economic development. Ilerve Belzilc, president, Ca- nadian Life Insurance Associa- tion: The challenge for 1971 will be to move forward again with- out unleashing the forces of in- flation. With high unemploy- ment there will be pressure for looser credit, lower interest rates and money for make-work projects. J. C. McCarthy, president, Ca- nadian Gas Association: .Out- look for the natural gas industry in 1971 is good. There will be in- creased demand for natural gas as fuel. High interest rates couid restrict some expansion plans. Cubans aid Americans MIAMI, Fla. The U.S. Coast Guard and two of Fidel Castro's patrol boats co-oper- ated to rescue seven Americans from a partially submerged boat aground off Cuba on Christmas. The Cuban patrol craft, came upon the 85-foot Sea Rover, bound for Nicaragua, soon after it ran aground on a cora! roof three miles off the northwestern tip of Cuba, survivors said after they were flown to Miami. David Edwards. 30, of Stafes- ville, N.C., said the Cubans of- fered their help and when the Americans were unable to free Lhe grounded boat, stood by until the coast guard could reach the converted patrol tor- Kdo boat and the four adults and three children aboard. "The water was only about waist deep inside the boat so we ill scurried up to the Edwards said. The Cubans ar- rived soon after the travellers radioed a distress call. "The Cubans were very help- Edwards said. "Five of them came over asking if they could provide us wilh any as- sistance. They made an attempt to help us get the boat off but failed." A coast guard air- craft reached the Sea Rover a short time later, Edwards said, and dropped a salvage pump "that was too small." A helicopter from St. Peters- 350 miles away- picked up six of the boat's pas- sengers late Friday and the sev- i enth, owner Nikola Ecverdija of i Miami, was taken aboard the Belgian freighter Pontos. Scverdija, 33, his wife Sylvia and their 10, Dean, 8, and Gladys en route to Nicaragua as set- tlers, the wife said. Mrs. Sevcr- dija said they had planned to operate the Sea Rover commer- cially as a Nicaraguan river boat.

"Pain and suffer- ing" claims are eliminated. 'Hie object is to unclog the courts and trim legal fees by ending nuisance claims. Claims greater than can bo liti- gated in the usual manner. Only bodily injury insurance, compulsory in Massachusetts since 1927, is affected by no- faull. Property damage liability insurance and comprehensive fire, theft and collision coverage will be unchanged. Should it prove workable, the no-fa tilt concept may be ex- tended to property damage cov- erage. The state legislature tacked two amendments on to its no- I fault bill. One provided a merit rating system which will go into effect in 1972; the other man- dated a 15-per-cent across-the- board rate reduction in all types of auto insurance. The insurance companies did not oppose the rate reduction in compulsory liability but filed suit in the state Supreme Court contesting the reduction in prop- erty and physical damage rates. The court ruled in favor of the companies in both cases. Legal associations continue to oppose the no-fault law. They contend the law is so poorly written it will result in more claims and increased litigation, therefore raising costs. New York stocks Supplied by Richardson.

GRANTS FOR FOOD VANCOUVER (CP) The Unemployed Citizens Welfare Improvement Council of Van- couver is using a grant from the University of British Columbia student society to start a co-operative cut-price food outlet. EDMONTON mink breeders are in trouble, the victims of tight money and world over-production. "The last thing you think of buying in tight times is said Ken Montgomery of Wet- askiwin, whose Montgomery Fur Ranch Ltd. has almost ex- hausted its reserves in the last two or three bad years. Mr. Montgomery said it costs almost ?12 to raise a mink but pelts are bringing only to at auctions. "It's a case of survival of t'ie he said in an in- terview. "The ones that didn't bother to put away reserves in the good years are already out." He will have to go out of busi- ness after next year's crop un- less prices improve. Bob Gilles, supervisor of the Alberta agriculture depart- ment's fur farms section, said the number of producers has dropped substantially in the last few years. This year the 95 remaining breeders raised mink, down from 000 last year.
