Allison, prairie region vice-president of CP Rail, said Friday movement of U.S. grain through Canada in CPR boxcars is in accordance with car service rules and is not adversely affecting movement of Canadian grain. Mr- Allison said in a statement some company boxcars loaded with U.S. grain have been moving through North Portal, Sask., via Canada to U.S. ports. "This is in accordance with North American car service rules which govern the manner in which cars of one railway may be used by another, and fully complies with both U.S. and Canadian customs regulations." He said about 450 CP Rail cars loaded with U.S. grain have moved through Canada since last fall. These are cars MONTREAL (CP) - Metropolitan Montreal's real estate sales topped $1 billion in 1972, a sign that Canada's largest city may have recovered from the political and eoonomic problems prevalent three years ago. Real estate officials even report they are running short of medium priced houses in some parts of the area. They are also concerned that prices may begin to rise at an inflationary rate since increased confidence could lead to a strong sellers' market. Gerard Carignan, outgoing president of the Montreal Real Estate Board, said "no one wants to see Montreal hit by the kind of house-price inflation that appears to be out of control in Toronto. The average house price there has risen thousands of dollars above that of its counterpart in Montreal." Other signs of Montreal's recovery include about .$1 billion in new construction projects scheduled to begin this year, including several office towers, REGULAR CATTLE SALE n: EVERY MONDAY AT 11:00 A.M.

"Real estate activity is an indication of how business is doing in general," says Beverly D. Baily, new president of the real estate board. The board reports that there were 29,800 transactions in buildings and land during 1972, representing slightly over $1 billion-a record for the area and the highest since 19S9. Real estate sales were $895.1 million in 1969, but they plunged to $770.2 million in 1970, a year of political turmoil which saw a cabinet minister killed and a British trade commissioner kidnapped by members of the Front de Liberation du Quebec. Sales advanced slightly in 1971 to $792.6 million on 23,800 transactions, but they were still not strong enough to indicate a turnaround.

Sets work rules KINSHASA, Zaire (AP) - President Mobutu of Zaire, fresh from a visit to China, said that Zaire citizens will spend their Saturdays working on collective projects in the general interest of the country and prisoners will labor as farm hands. He also imposed bans on importing beer, food and jewels. "The 1972 figures are a reflection of the steadily improving economic picture and of growing confidence in Quebec," said Mr. Baily, president of Westmount Realties which recently merged with the national firm of A.E. LePage Ltd. He predicted the healthy picture should continue this year. PANIC SELLING OVER The flurry of what realtors call panic selling has also ended. People who were trying to sell in 1970 but couldn't are changing their minds, and many are withdrawing their properties from the sales lists. Jack Engelsman of LePage (Quebec) Inc. said: "A good many people were so anxious to sell the buyer could take his time while half a dozen sellers waited." Today lists are running short in some suburbs, although there is m shortage of houses in the $100,000-and-over bracket. The shortages exist in medium-priced properties, the $20,-000 to $40,000 price range. However, prices remain relatively steady as "the average price for houses in 1972 has been only about two-or 2V4-per-cent higher than in M71," Mr. Carignan said. "But with demand higher and stock diminishing, owners may be holding out for considerably higher prices than they would have accepted a couple of years ago."
