PRICES TUMBLE NEW" YORK (AP) - Stock prices tumbled today as investors pulled back from their earlier bullish view of plans to devalue the United States dollar. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks was off 12.26 to 984.50, and losses held a 967-ot-312 edge over gains on the New York Stock Exchange. Trading was active. Analysts said the decline reflected not only a second look at the dollar devaluation but also a return to nervousness about inflation- Among Canadians, Dome Mines was up 3 to $79%, Mclntyre 1 to $49, Walker Goo-derham % to $51% B and Gran-dy Mning to $20%. Inco lost % to $33. On the American exchange, Brasoan advanced % to $20%. Most other Canadians were unchanged. No fears on U.S. dollar devaluation By IRVING C. WHYNOT CP Business Editor For Canada, devaluation of the United States dollar appears to hold no immediate fears. The uncertainty is in the future. Specifically, is devaluation just one step and is worse to come? The nagging worry of some economists is that the U.S. still may. impose tough trade regulations. Anything that hinders tfade will affect nations that do a big international business- and Canada is one of these. As long as the U.S. and Canadian dollars remain near parity, Canada escapes any real crunch because two-thirds of its trade is with the U.S.' In fact, U.S. devaluation should have some economic benefits for Canada as well as the U.S. as long as the Canadian dollar value follows that of the U.S. By making Japanese goods more expensive, for instance, Canadian manufacturers have an edge over Japanese goods now coming into the country. Japanese cars and television sets, for example, become more expensive, making it easier for Canadian manufacturers to compete on price. In general, then, any moves that help the U.S. economy will do the same for Canada-as long as the two dollars remain about even in value. Early indications are that the Canadian dollar will follow the U.S. dollar on international markets. The U.S. dollar in terms of Canadian funds closed Tuesday down 7-16 to 99.900. But that won't help the U.S. solve its growing balance of payments problem. Canada is one of the countries with a surplus in trade with the U.S. so it seems logical that there will be new pressure on Canada in this regard. Immediately, Canadian observers see few problems for Canada in devaluation itself. Keith Dixon, manager of the Canadian Importers Association, said the price of some imported goods will increase. "In the view of this association, the real impact will be reflected in a tougher negotiating stance being taken by the U.S. in its current trade discussions with Canada."

Shipping network suggested MONTREAL (CP) - Canada's shipbuilding industry should take the initiative in developing a transportation network to ship natural resources out of the Canadian Arctic, a senior government official said Tuesday. "The question of who is to transport the resources all depends on the initiatives of Canadian shipbuilders . . . whether you are willing to roll up your shirtsleeves and get at it," said A. Digby Hunt, assistant deputy minister in the federal department of Indian Affairs and northern development. In a speech to the Canadian Shipbuilding and Ship Repairing Association, Mr. Hunt said Canadian shipbuilders may be to blame for an ongoing West German study on shipping possi-biUtes in the Arctic. The project was the initiative of two groups of scientists-one from Munster University' in Germany and the other from Brock University in St. Catharines, Ont.' A. G. Weser group, a subsidiary of Krupp Industries and the largest shipyard in Germany, funded the project. Mr. Hunt said Canadian officials have not decided whether to agree to the German government's request that Weser be allowed to continue its study.

Last year, capital expenditures by retail co-operatives for new construction and expansion totalled some $9 million. EMPLOY 810,000 The directors said the retail consumer and farm supply cooperative system, including FCL, employs an estimated 10, 000 people. About 8,300 are in the retail sector and 1,700 in the FCL distribution sectors. The retail sector includes 434 retail co-operatives - 89 in Manitoba and northwestern Ontario, 219 in Saskatchewan, 78 in Alberta and 48 in British Columbia. They serve more than 400,000 member families and had a combined sales volume of $410 million in 1972, with savings of some $16 milion for allocation to members. Federated Co-operatives has major distributing warehouses and offices in Winnipeg, Re-gina, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Calgary and Vancouver. Manufacturing facilities include nine feed mills, lumber mills in B.C. and Alberta, a plywood plant in B.C., a petroleum refinery at Regina, a basic chemical plant in Saskatoon and part ownership with western wheat pools of a fertilizer plant at Calgary. FCL's home office is in Saskatoon. The directors said studies now under way at the Regina refinery could lead to early action regarding production of low-lead and lead-free content in gasolines. Their report said federal government directives indicate an intention to require lead content reduced to 2.5 grams a gallon by Jan. 1, 1974, from the present three grams a gallon. The directors said the proposed new regulations appear to be aimed at the increasing problem of exhaust pollution in major urban centres. "There is no evidence of a hazard resulting from the use of leaded gasoline in open areas such as farm, fields," the report said. "Thus it is questionable whether farmers should be required to use higher-cost low-lead gasoline when working their land." The directors said priority will be given by the consumer oo-operative system this year to developing programs aimed at promoting and protecting the interests of consumers in a number of areas. WINNIPEG (CP) - Visible supplies, farmers marketings and overseas clearances of the principle Canadian grains and oilseeds increased slightly during the week ended Feb. 7, the Canadian Grain Commission reported Tuesday.

Visible stocks cf the principal grains on hand at Thunder Bay for the week totalled 64.0 million bushels, an increase from 60.6 million of one week earlier and 47.3 million bushels of the comparative week in 1972. Coal firm to seek price hike VANCOUVER (CP) - Fording Coal Ltd. produced one million tons of coking coal for export to Japan in 1972, a sharp fall-off from othe 2.5 million tons anticipated in the first year of operation. A review of the East Koo-tenay project was released on Monday by Robin M. Porter, president of Fording - a joint venture of Canadian Pacific Investments Ltd. and Cominco Ltd., both subsidiaries of Canadian Pacific Ltd. The summary also showed that Fording will seek an increase in price when it meets with Japanese steel interests this month in Japan. In addition, Mr. Porter said capital investment in the project rose from the original $80 million to $90 million. Porter said that by December, monthly production rose to 170,000 tons or 82 per cent of the monthly target for the first coontract year ending March 31. Bottle firms hike refunds, and deposits NEW YORK (Reuter) -American Airlines said Tuesday it had dropped its six options for the British-French Concorde supersonic jetliner because "the airplane does not fit the characteristics of our route structure." Industry sources said it means that since America flies mostly short-haul routes over land it has no great need for a supersonic jetliner. Later Tuesday, Sabena, the Belgian national airline, announced it has cancelled its options for two Concorde airliners. A company spokesman said the Sabena board of directors had come to the conclusion that the financial situation of *he airline prevented it from taking up the options.
