The first North American Snow Snake competition will be held at the Wood- land Indian Educational Centre in Brantford Feb 2-3 The seldom-seen Indian winter sport involves throwing slender rods of polished hardwood along a grooved track in the snow Some of the seven-foot-long snow snakes have been known to travel more than a mile The organizers of the event hope to make it an annual affair Newsprint cost increases change design of papers NEW YORK (AP) The rising cost of newsprint, up more than 40 per cent during the last year, has brought about changes in design and format to the newspapers in the United States as well as pushing up prices Paper manufacturers' bills to publishers have boosted the cost of newsprint to a ton in the East and a ton in the West, effective Jan 1 1975 up from a ton a year ago For the big metropolitan newspapers, the new price means increased paper costs of million to million a year more than what they paid last year Newsprint represents nearly one-fourth of the opera tion cost of our papers, said Charles Crowder, publisher of the Winston-Salem (N C Journal and Sentinel "Since 1971 the cost of this material has risen 70 per cent and by 1976 it will have increased another 15 per cent Newspapers face the grim but real possibility they may have to ration space to advertisers and to news as well as restrict the number of copies of the paper and to whom they will be dis- tributed Crowder said Suppliers say, though, that the high cost has not caused papers to cut orders already placed for newsprint Among the most widespread changes brought about by the paper price boom this year was the rapid disappearance of the 10 cent daily newspaper and the 25-cent Sunday edition The American Newspaper Publishers Association s an- nual survey of U S new- spapers showed for the first Alberta vegetable industry booming EDMONTON (CP) Vegetable crops don't easily come to mind when you think of farm- ing in Alberta but the in- dustry has been boom- ing in recent years While vegetables are an expensive high-risk crop and relatively un- economical to grow in the province more than 1 900 acres of fresh vegetable crops were produced in 1974 The agriculture department says potatoes, carrots par- snips, onions, rutabagas cabbage and corn are grown in suf- ficient quantity to supp- ly a major proportion of the .retail vegetable market Each of those crops usually costs a vegetable farmer about an acre to produce and although the grow- ing season is short new Alberta products are appearing on the market every year The industry is spreading from the southern areas where it originated and market gardens are operating successfully near Ed- monton and Fairview in the northwest Vegetables for processing also are on the increase primarily corn peas and carrots, and the province has three large processing plants, one at Taber and two at Lethbndge One plant handles mainly potatoes and the other two process green and wax beans, beets, potatoes, peas, corn and carrots Newsprint production to increase in 1975 MONTREAL (CP) Cana- dian newsprint manufacturing capacity will total almost 10 2 million tons in 1975, a 2 8-per- cent increase from almost 9 9 million tons in 1974, the Cana- dian Pulp and Paper Associ- ation predicted today In 1976, capacity is expected to increase another 2 4 per cent for a total of 10 4 million tons, the association said In practice, however, the actual production rates are only 96 per cent of the capacity That figure could be further reduced if work halts or shortages of raw materials occur Expected increased capacities in the next two years were credited to expan- sion of various mills, mainly in eastern Canada time that most daily papers now cost 15 cents or more and the majority of Sunday papers sell at the newstand for 35 cents a copy and more Cost cutting measures dur- ing the year included the reduction in a paper s size to save newsprint and a change in format which meant the loss of up to 10 per cent in the space devoted to punting news publishers say Publishers of several major metropolitan newspapers, in- cluding the Los Angeles Times and the Miami Herald and Miami News, announced plans to reduce the width of each page three-quarters of an inch The Times said it will save an estimated 18 000 tons of newsprint each year representing a saving of 2 million after the width reduc- tion planned for Dec 30 This year, there was some easing of the newsprint supply situation which was critical for many newspapers at the beginning of 1974 due to prolonged strikes at Canadian mills in the fall of 1973 Canadian mills which produce more than 70 per cent of the newsprint used by U S newspapers did a brisk business during the year as U S publishers rebuilt supplies Shipments from Canada to the U S rose 8 5 per cent during the first 11 months Structural steel need on decline TORONTO (CP) Although demand for struc- tural steel will remain strong in 1975 bookings are expected to drop slightly, a steel in- dustry spokesman said today Mac Cameron, chairman of the Canadian Institute of Steel Construction, said bookings by its members for structural steel and plate will total near- ly tons in 1974, up tons from 1973 Much of the work booked in 1974, particularly platework, is for fabrication and erection in 1975 and he said in a year-end statement However, bookings are ex- pected to drop to around 000 in 1975 reflecting a large backlog of advance bookings and a return to more normal line of demand in the industry Advance orders by owners and consultants has effective- ly avoided serious tion delays over the past two years, he said Institute members book about 85 per cent of Canada's structural steel requirements ;
