(CP) The Northwest Territo- ries council opened a new ses- sion Monday plans _for more welfare, an official flag increase in the level of polar bear hunting. Much of the proposed legisla- tion, described in an opening address by territorial Commis- sioner Stuart Hodgson, involves HE'S A LOUSE This is a bee louse magnified times under a University of Georgia microscope. To the human eye the bee louse is an unidentifiable dot. Researchers nt ths University were able to photograph the minute reddish parasite by a photographic procejs designed into a new research instrument called the scan- ning electron microscope. The louse is so small that it lives on the body of a honey bee and takes food directly from the mouth of the host bee. A louse with a "sweet Nickel Mke liad little effect on economy says prices probe OTTAWA (CP) The prices i and incomes commission said here a five cent a pound in- crease in the price of nickel made by the International Nickel Co. of Canada last Octo- ber had little effect on the do- mestic economy. The commission's inquiry was undertaken while it was still policing an agreement among businessmen to hold price in- creases in 1970 to something less than their cost increases. Inco's profits after taxes in the first nine months of last year rose to 20 per cent of its sales, from 17 per cent in 1961. Other nickel producers, Falcon- bridge Nickel Mines, Ltd., and Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd., also showed large increases in profits over the first nine months of 1969. The commission said the price increase was primarily designed to compensate the nickel producers for the loss ol exchange they experieneei when the Canadian dollarr was freed last June from its peggec internal lonal exchange rate. As t'je dollar rose in value on exchange markets, the effeetiv Canadian price was cut. Nicke iroducers sell 95 per cent o ieir product abroad, quotin jrices in U.S. dollar terms. The irice received by producers i Canadian terms fell to oound in September from at the start of the year. The commission said the im- pact of the price increase of five cents a pound would have a "relatively minor" effect on the economy, since nickel is a major component in only a very few items. Used in the produc- tion of stainless steel, its contri- bution to the selling price of freezers, for instance, is about one-four-hundredth of one per cent. "Increases in nickel prices did not by themselves increase domestic manufacturing costs and selling prices sufficiently to jeopardize directly the domestic price restraint the commission said. dministrative housekeeping, iut there were also plans to es- jllish new boards and commit- ees similar to those of provin- ial governments. The council, which has a new ook because of the election of mr native candidates and the eturn of only two incumbents, s to consider a record budget of 84 million, an increase of million from last year. The ludget includes provision for an ncrease in social assistoce atcs to bring them into line with higher living costs in the north. Mr. Hodgson said the social assistance estimates would also allow an increase in the monthly income an individual or amily would be allowed to earn without a reduction in the amount of social assistance he may receive. He did not elaborate. FLAG INCLUDES CREST Among the 17 bills planned was i: proposal for making the commonly used blue and white Hag official in the N.W.T. It is similar in basic design to the Canadian maple leaf flag but contains blue bands on either side and a white band in the middle bearing the crest of the N.W.T. The commissioner said a total of six polar bears were shot by white hunters last year near the high Arctic communities ol Sachs Harbor and Resolute Bay under a bill passed last January permitting a few Eskimos to sell their hunting permits to sportsmen. The limit is to be extended to a total of 10 this year in the same two settlements. Mr. Hodgson also the formation of a special 'group :o find solutions to transports ion and communications prob- lems in the Territories. It is to x led by Jim Wbelly, former general manager of the N.W.T. Centennial.
