Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Big newspapers observed 1970 price restraint guides I. THt UIMUXX HBALD OTTAWA newspapers raised advertising and subscription rates substan- tially last year, the federal prices and incomes commission said yesterday each of the major newspaper organizations observed last year's price re- straint guides. The commission studied costs and profit forecasts of 13 pub- lishers and publishing organiza- tions and srid in a report tabled in the Commons that they had "a relatively high rate of re- tarn on investment in the in- dustry." But there were wide differences in the performance of individual companies. Over-all, the commission said profits of the companies re- viewed were expected to de- cline to million in 1970 from J54.9 million in 1969. The commission studied reve- nue, cost and profit figures for the 13 firms in the light of last year's agreement among busi- nessmen at a price stability conference to hold price in- creases to less than cost in- creases. It applied this criteria to each of the 13 organizations and said: "In all cases, they (the pub- lishers) have projected greater cost increases than revenue in- creases during 1970. Power shortage hits U.S. areas WASHINGTON (AP) The acute shortage of electricity plaguing parts of the Northern United States could be but a bleak portent of things to come, a Federal Power Commission official says. Since mid-January, 19 voltage cuts have been ordered in areas from Chicago to New England. "I've never seen cutbacks like we're seeing Commis- sioner John Carver said in an interview. "Whatever else it might mean at the present time, it means we're going to have to live with this for the foreseeable future unless the good Lord sees fit to change the weather, and I don't think that will happen." In the last three weeks, ac- cording to FPC data, voltage cuts of up to five per cent have been necessary eight times in the power pool serving New England, seven times in the Naw York state power rvol, three times in'the pool serving Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Del- aware, Maryland, Virginia, ant the District of Columbia and once in Chicago and other areas of northern Illinois served by the Commonwealth Edison Co. SERVE 50 MILLION The utility firms serve up- wards of 50 million people, bu few felt any pinch beyond the inconvenience of voluntary com pliance with pleas to use as lit tie power as possible. There is no readfly noticeable effect unti power cuts reach eight per cen as they did during last sum- mer's power crisis along the eastern seaboard. Carver said the danger of nore serious voltage reductions will continue throughout the rest of the winter, in the hot months next summer and could even a traditional, semi-an- nual crisis during the next sev- eral years. Heavy demand due to unu- sually cold weather is one fac- tor blamed for current power shortages. The other is chronic equipment failures which have jlagued electric utility compa- nies for the last five years. financial results made available for the year to date confirm these projections. "These companies have, therefore, met the criteria agreed to at the national con- ference on price stability." The report named only two f i r m s. dealing with their cases specifically. Thomson Newspapers Ltd., publishers of 30 daHy news- papers and 15 weeklies in Can- ada gains its major revenues and' pre tax profits from the United States, but submitted fi- gures for Canadian operations. The Canadian operations were expected to produce lar- ger dollar profits in 1970 but te percentage of net profit to revenue was to be lower than in 1969. The Toronto Star was ex- pected to show increased profits, but this was because of a reduction in the loss it exper- ienced in 1969 on its commer- cial printing operation. Among the 13 concerns studied, higher advertising and subscription rates were wide- spread last year, the commis- sion said. The 13 concerns owned or controlled 65 daily newspapers, representing 75 per cent of total circulation. "The newspaper industry re- alizes higher profits in relation to sales and equity than most other the commis- sion said.

It gives advice on the value of constantly switching the battle front "we can undermine the enemy's inorale." It also urges greater use of the public at large in a drive to oust the British troops from Ulster and eventually join Ulster with the Irish Republic. But while newspapers and the public 'express shock at the ap- pearance of children in the bat- tles, The Scotsman notes that the Ulster deaths have rioting and the "created little stir on this side of the Irish Sea." "That is a sad measure of the degree to which disorder has become endemic again."
