Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Gold stocks rise; others show drop TORONTO (CP) The To- ronto stock market's gold index rose sharply but other prices were generally lower in active mid-morning trading today. The gold index was up 16.1 to 534.13 following a rise in the price of gold in Europe, and the base metal index .or to 105.57. The industrial index, consid- ered the main indicator of market trend, fell 1.95 to 212.47 and western oils 3.41 to 267.07. Volume by 11 a.m. was 1.32 million shares, up from 1.22 million at the same time Fri- day. Declines outnumbered ad- vances by two to one, 243 to 109 with 186 issues unchanged. Industrial mining, paper and forest, pipeline and steel sectors of the market were among those to decline while real estate and food processing groups were up slightly.

The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials at noon was down 20.33 at 823.61, little changed from a half hour earlier, while declines led advances on the New York Stock Exchange by more than 5 to 2. Investor attention is no longer focused on the Mideast negotiations but has been diverted to "the potential for a recession and continuing inflationary said Monte Gordon, an analyst. "The market is also increasingly concerned with the obvious impact of the energy crisis on unemployment." Arab intransigence with re- spect to oil shipments, the truckers strike, and continuing uncertainties over Watergate also were factors in the market selloff, brokers said. On the American Stock Ex- change, the market value index at noon was down .82 at 95.87, while the NYSE composite index was off .95 at 50.05. NYSE prices included Litton, down fe to Gulf, off to and Boeing, down 1 to Autos were weak, with American Motors down to GM, down 1 to and Ford, off 1% to Glamours also fell, with Bausch and Lotnb down 2% to Xerox, down 3 to and Fairchild Camera, off 3% to WINNIPEG (CP) Flax remained strong but there was some weakening of prices in rapeseed and rye at mid- session today of the Winnipeg Commodity Exchange. Flax prices ranged from six to 22 cents higher as buyers continued to show good interest in all commodities. There was a general lack of offers. Rye was fractionally to a couple of cents lower on improved selling offers and the weakness also showed in Vancouver rapeseed at the March position. It was down 'A cent. Other rapeseed months were advanced as much as seven cents but that was a drop from the strong opening. Friday's volume of trade was 269.000 bushels of flax. 733.000 of rye and 1.326.000 of rapeseed.

Meat price swing felt by everyone YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) After eight years of consideration, the Northwest Territories Government has agreed to begin a long-term experiment in musk-ox ranching. But the government says it will probably be another eight years before knitting the animals' valuable quiviat, or wool, becomes a profit- making industry. The territorial council has approved an administration proposal that will see the capture of 30 calves, the establishment, of a privately owned, government- subsidized ranch, and the initiation of a "cottage" knitting industry. The proposal passed by a vote of 7-5 but not before councillors had explored such alternatives as permitting the docile shaggy animals to be shot. Some of the more pointed criticisms levelled by councillors involved economics. The economic development department will have to subsidize not only the capture, transport and fencing hi the initial phase of ranching, but probably also the ranch's operation for the first two or three years. Musk-oxen at the ranch will not begin producing wool in sufficient quantity to make its combing economic for two or three years. The government has estimated the three-year sudsidy, including the capture, at In addition, the knitting industry will receive worth of government attention during the eight years it could take the operation to become self- supporting, the admini- stration said. Sale of sweaters knitted from the musk-ox wool will almost balance the subsidy. 'The knitting operation could take in by selling sweaters at each. This would leave of the subsidy which, added to the involved in ranching, means the government would spend getting the industry started. Musk-oxen roam the high Arctic and at one time were in danger of extinction. The federal government banned their killing from 1917 to 1968 and sports hunting of the animals still is forbidden. The 30 young calves are to be flown from Banks Island, the most northwesterly area in Canada, to the ranch which could be either in Fort Smith, on the Alberta-Northwest Territories border, or Fort Providence, on the southwest short of Great Slave Lake. Home buyer to face further price hikes TORONTO (CP) Sharp and unpredicted swings in livestock and meat prices hi 1973 were not good for producers, the meat trade or .the public, the general manager of the Meat Packers Council said today. Keith Leckie told the council's annual meeting, however, that applying price controls would have compounded the problem. He told livestock producers Stock markets in slump NEW YORK (AP) The stock market, burdened by what brokers described as negative news on several fronts, fell steeply today in moderate trading. that the meat industry would support them in their desire for adequate and stable returns. He warned that meat processors alone cannot guarantee price and income stability to primary producers but are willing to join in efforts to obtain effective new approaches to agricultural and food policy. K. G. Murray, in his presidential address, told the meeting that resources and knowledge must be pooled to ensure a viable processing and livestock industry. Mr. Murray also said adequate profits are eseential for the continuing health of the free enterprise, competitive system. He said he believes price increases this year will be less than in 1973, but pointed out that wage increases must be faced in the coming months and will have an effect on costs. Texts of both speakers' remarks were released in advance of delivery. HALIFAX (CP) Home buyers will have to accept higher prices and uncertain finishing dates this year, says the president of the Housing and Urban Development Association of Canada. Keith Morley of Toronto said in an interview during the weekend the housing industry's two biggest problems at present are the energy crisis and a shortage of building materials, especially those which are de- rived from petroleum. He described the shortages as a -major, but manageable, problem and "not a crisis." He predicted that the short- ages will prolong the building process and will cause buyers to accept flexible finishing dates for their homes. Prices also will go up, he said, because many construc- tion products are based on oil- related raw materials. Mr. Morley is here to attend the association's annual meet- ing, which begins today. Speakers during the three-day meeting will include Urban Affairs Minister Ron Basford today and Premier Frank Moores of Newfoundland Tuesday. Cattle sale held in hotel ballroom VANCOUVER (CP) Some of the best-looking pedigree beef in Canada ambled into the plush ballroom of a downtown Stormy months ahead predicted for labor Vancouver hotel Saturday, making hotel staff nervous and hundreds of buyers frantic. The occasion was the full French Charolais sale, highlight of the Canadian Charolais Association's 15th annual convention. Twenty-seven cows, heifers and bulls were shuttled from a basement parking garage, four at a time in a freight elevator, to the convention- floor ballroom. By SANDRA INGALSBE Cautfian Press Staff Writer Fewer major labor agreements expire this year than last, but most experts are predicting turbulent months ahead for labor, both internally and in dealing with management. Unions are expected to become more militant as sharp increases in the cost of living consume past wage gains and many corporations report rising profits. Management will argue that rising fuel and material prices make it harder to absorb increased labor costs. At the same time, the labor movement will be under greater pressure from within for more Canadian identify and consolidation- One of the issues before the Canadian Labor Congress (CLC) convention in Vancouver in May will be that of extending the guidelines for strengthening Canadian identity of international onions in Canada. ADOPTED IN 1I7Z The guidelines were adopted in 1972 but there are no provisions for enforcement, and some critics feel the standards do not go far enough to satisfy Canadian union needs. Observers say that nationalism is often dormant until there is dissatisfaction within a union. Then independent unions sweep in. The issue of consolidation was raised by an alliance of three national CLC-affiliated unions Canadian Union of Public Employees, Public Service Alliance of Canada and Canadian Brotherhood of Railway, Transport and General Workers. Critics say the idea of dividing the union structure into compartments couM only be a long-term objective. As a short-term goal it would have to be imposed from the top, something that runs against the grain of the proclaimed democracy of the trade union movement. Another potentially-divisive issue will be the demand by the Quebec Federation of Labor for separate status as a trade union centre, but with financing coming from the CLC. FIGHT SEEN In addition, a wide-open leadership fight is expected as Donald MacDonald steps down from toe presidency of the CLC. A recent Babson's investment service report says that 269 contracts or 35 per cent of the existing major labor agreements those involving bargaining units of 500 or more employees will be renegotiated this year. The figures represent about 31 per cent of the employees in major agreements. Franchise available Lethbridge McLeod area from owner.
