Ltd. had operating profits of or 58 cents a share luring 1970 compared with or 73 cents a share in 969. The company also had an ex-raordinary gain of iuring 1970 from the sale of securities. The earnings were on a gross revenue of the highest in the company's history and an increase of 8.3 per cent from 1969. Home, in a preliminary financial report, said long-term debt was reduced to SJ65.3CO.OOO by sale of securities and included in bank loans. At the end of 1970, market value of investments in Tran-seanada Pipelines Ltd., Atlantic Richfield Co., Calgary Power Ltd. and others was The higher gross revenue was due mostly to more sales of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids. The earnings decrease was attributed to an extra provision of for depletion. Crude oil production was up 14 per cent to an average of 18.994 barrels a day and daily sales of natural gas averaged 89.2 million cubic feet compared with 69.9 million cubic feet in Former mail truckers bar doors MONTREAL (CP) Downtown offices of the Confedera-ion of National Trade Unions were still locked to all employees today as 352 former employees of the G. Lapalme Inc. mail rickup service continued their jccupation. The former truck drivers, who took over the CNTU offices "uesday morning, spent the night in the seven-storey build-ng sleeping on floors and tables while "negotiations" between CNTU officials and the union went on late into the night. WANT JOBS The men have vowed not to leave the building until the CNTU forces the federal government to give them jobs. Thev have been unemployed since losing their jobs last March when G. Lapalme Inc. failed to bid on renewal of a mail pickup and delivery contract on Montreal Island. In the ensuing dispute, the federal government took over mail delivery operations on the island and offered many of the drivers jobs in the public service. The drivers objected because joining the public service meant they would have to give up their union prices EDMONTON (CP) Prices to 11 a.m. provided by the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board: Edmonton: Quoted 22.50 to 22.50, selling 22.50.
