On the Board of Trade, 'wheat futures came off a weak opening and closed 8% cents higher, but corn, oats, soybeans, soy oil and meal were mostly lower. Wheat futures fell as much as six cents on continued weakness associated with reports the government would, seek wheat from other countries to bolster diminishing United States stocks before the new crop is available in late June. Late in the session, new commission house buying developed and local shorts were forced to cover, bringing prices to new levels Corn and oats tended''to improve slightly as wheat rallied. Soybeans, soy oil and meal were weak on selling linked to a Russian report that its sunflower seed production was higher than expected and oil stocks here rose Jan. 1.

Multi-million dollar gas plant sought for Empress CALGARY (CP) Consolidated Natural Gas Ltd. outlined plans for a multi- million dollar gas processing plant it proposes for Empress, Alta. Tuesday before the Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board. The company applied to the board Sept. 28, 1973 for permission to construct a plant, expected to cost to million, at Empress, 175 miles east of Calgary on the Alberta Saskatchewan border. The plant would be used for the processing of gas, owned by Consolidated, to extract pentane and butane by- products. Consolidated proposes to build the plant, with an average daily natural gas intake of 350 million cubic feet, in two stages. Construction would involve the dismantling of a gas processing plant which is no longer in use at Detroit, Mich. The Detroit plant was built in 1962 by the Fluor Corp. and was damaged by fire in 1972 and has been closed since. New equipment would be purchased for the proposed plant to supplement the equipment brought from the Detroit plant.

The review, released here Tuesday, says Canada can ex- pect an increase of about four per cent in the Gross National Product in 1974, down 2% per cent from the previous year. This slower rate of growth, Sugar price hiked again TORONTO (CP) The price of sugar has risen again this month to almost double its price in October, industry spokesmen say. Five pounds currently costs at Dominion Stores Ltd. here. In November, it went to from 77 cents. A Dominion spokesman says a breakdown in the Inter- national Sugar Agreement of 1968 is the main cause, but other factors have been a Soviet crop failure and a Japanese ban on saccharin last year. The International Sugar Or- ganization set up a world agreement on price in 1968. says the review, "will mean, an increase the unemployment rate in 1974 to more than six per cent." The review also predicts continued inflation "at about the same unsatisfactory level as in adding that the pressure on prices is bound to be felt by the consumer. NO END TO INFLATION It forecasts continued in- flation in 1974 due to "huge in- creases" in petroleum prices' and large wage settlements by labor. But the review also says there will be some "moderating influence" on inflation through a "levelling out" of food prices and reduction of some commodity prices.! While Canada's trade deficit is likely to stay at about the same level as the last two years, the review also cites a "continuing boom" in capital investments in Canada as a major factor in the expected upward movement of the Canadian dollar. Over-all consumer spending, says the report, "is expected to hold up reasonably well this year" with a gain of about 11 per cent. This rate is lower than in 1973 because of a decreased demand for durable goods. The review says housing starts are expected to be in the to range, compared with a record in 1973. scheduled to be on stream at the end of 1974, will recover 17-to-18 per cent of the liquid hydrocarbons in the gas, the Board was told. Completion of the second stage of the plant would result in 89-to-90 per cent recovery of pentanes and butanes. Recovery of gallons a day of liquid hydrocarbons was expected on completion of the plant. Barring further delays, company officials said they hoped to have the second phase on stream by the end of 1975. N. J. Lashuk, president of consolidated, said his firm had approached Dome Petroleum and Pacific Petroleum, who have similar plants in the Empress area, to process consolidated's gas. But the two companies would not give compensation for the liquid hydrocarbons produced from Consolidated's gas. Dome petroleum and Pacific petroleum were among the intervenors in the application. Also intervening were Amoco Canada Ltd., Pan Alberta Gas, Pan Canadian Gas Processors and TransCanada pipelines.. The hearing is expected to end today Tax details available for U.S. citizens A United States Internal Revenue Service taxpayer assistor, Mrs. B. Johnson, will be available at the United States Consulate General, 615 Macleod Trail S.E., Calgary, February 13-15, March 1, March 4-8, and March 11 and 12 to assist persons in filing United States income tax returns.
