JOHN'S, Nfld. (CP) Newfoundland's mineral in- dustry reports a record value for 1973 of million, about 27 per cent above 1972 returns and almost million higher than the value record set in 1970. The province reported producing half of Canada's iron ore last year and the red ore was 86 per cent of the provincial output. The balance was fluorspar and pyrophyllite, an ore used in the manufacture of ceramics. Smaller amounts of silver, gold, copper, lead, zinc and other minerals made up the remainder. The fluorspar mines at St. Lawrence on the south coast are the only such operative Study aimed at reducing crop loss FARGO, N.D. scientists at North Dakota State University say they are continuing studies aimed at reducing wheat crop loss inflicted by the fungi tan spot and leaf blotch. In damp growing seasons the fungi cause crop losses of 13 per cent in major spring wheats and dunims. Plant pathologist R. M. Hosford said that as persistant resistance is bred into future commercial wheats, average yields in wet years should increase to bumper crops as well as reduce the number of infected spores. mines in Canada and have been contributing to the mining industry since 1929. And the industry plans to in- crease production A new million mine was opened last October and is expected to produce 500 tons of ore daily by 1976, possibly doubling production in later years. Several significant deposits of other minerals have been discovered during the last three years, both on the island and in Labrador. The discoveries of copper, lead, zinc, silver, tungsten, gypsum and fluorspar indicate renewed growth in pro- duction in the next several years. Mines minister Leo Barry said the million in returns from mining last year showed the value of the industry to the province "but unfortunately, the government is not getting the revenue it should" and has appointed a royal commission to study the matter. The minister would not dis- close how much of the mineral value was paid in royalties to the province but the 1972-73 estimates said the government expected to receive million. He said the commission will look into the methods the province currently uses to collect revenues in the form of taxes and royalties and will compare rate structures with those of other provinces.

Crews at the Arctic Circle camp, 100 air miles north of the Yukon River, are constructing the road on an ice bridge across the Yukon, (t will run to the Brooks Range. "We need 30-to SO-below weather to do this kind of work said Mort Schierhorn, project manager "The colder weather makes the snow freeze up faster and harder when we pack it down Eight hundred heavily laden trucks are scheduled to cross the bridge with construction equipment before April, making drops at five road camps. More than million in con- struction equipment is already here. The snow- covered rigs have been sitting idle since ,1969 while a legal battle was being fought over the pipeline. PACKED WITH ICE Crews are building the 75- foot-wide ice bridge by pumping water from the river onto the surface of the natural ice until a five-foot-thick bridge is made. They compact the snow road and let it freeze rock hard This provides a smooth roadway until spring and does not disturb the environment. The ice road melts during spring breakup and the workers remove whatever trees and brush have been used to build up low spots Streams that cross the road wiU flow unhindered in the spring, say pipeline spokesmen. Cold Foot got its name from the 75-below temperatures often experienced here during the winter, and warm weather wasn't one of the problems Schierhorn expected to face. During the warm spell, he said, instead of the water freezing nightly, it took three days to solidify, delaying the job. A bulldozer fell through the ice further complicating the job. But it was recovered and is running again. The camps here will be used as bases for building the per- manent all-weather secondary road from Prudhoe Bay to the Yukon. That road is already complete from Fairbanks to the Yukon. From the permanent road, crews will construct the oil pipeline from the Prudhoe Bay oil fields south. They work bard, but many of them clear a week after taxes. They are racing to beat the warm road-melting temperatures of spring. New terminal Under construction at Ste. Scholastique, Que., 34 miles northwest of Montreal, is the mam terminal for the new Mon- treal international airport, Canada's first designed for the jumbo-jet era. The first terminal pro- vides for rapid-transit communter facilities, although it will be served in the opening stage by a superbus system. Gold price soars to record high LONDON (AP) Gold soared to record levels on European markets today. Dealers blamed fears for the values of paper money amid mounting indications that central banks may soon increase the official price of gold Gold traded at an ounce in London and an ounce in Zurich. The price at Friday's close in London was ZURICH (AP) The price of gold soared to an all-time high of an ounce today on the Zurich market in the wake of mounting indications that central banks in Western Europe may soon increase the official price. Opening prices on the Zurich bullion market, the world's biggest, were bid and offered, up from Friday. The previous record price in Zurich was Jan. 25. The bullish weekend trend was touched off by reports from Johannesburg, the mining centre for the West's gold, that a consortium of West European countries, including France, Italy and perhaps West Germany, might begin buying at a price related to the free market price. The trend picked up because of an interview published today in which French Finance Minister Valery Giscardd d'Estaing said he expected an increase in the official price of gold this year. The dual price system for gold, with an official price set by government central banks and a free market price for trading by private persons and firms, was terminated last November but governments have continued to buy at the official price at that time, an ounce.

This deadline applies to all retro-active claims for losses that took place between Jan- nary and December 31, 1973. When the program was announced towards the end of last year, it was made retro- active to January 1, 1972 for ali proven cases. The deadline for acceptance of livestock disaster and predator loss claims does not apply to losses that occurred after December 31, 1973. The program was initiated to lighten the financial harden of farmers who had suffered disastrous losses to their livestock herds or flocks through a natural disaster and to reduce the financial losses caused by predators. The first part of the program covers disastrous losses to livestock or poultry which arise from such things as floods, bush fires, blizzards at calving time, poisonings and any other cause that could be described as "an act of God." The second part of the program deals with cattle and sheep losses caused by wild animal predaUon Like the first part of the program, the assistance is based on 80 per cent of the animals slaughter value or normal market-value for commercial breeding purposes at the time of the loss Registered Retirement Savings Plan 'B' Now at INTEREST vlWH PLAN "A" SELF ADMINISTERED NOMINAL FEES Out of Respect to the late Gordon F.
