Livestock Tanker sails Wednesday with record grain cargo VANCOUVER World records for the largest, grain cargo ever to be loaded into one ship will be set by the Liberian tanker Amoco Cairo at the Port of Vancouver. She arrived on her maiden voyage on Feb. 10 and expects to sail on Wednesday. Built in Japan for American Oil Co. at an approximate cost of million, she received an estimated 4.8 million bushels of grain bound for Bangladesh. The grain is a gift from Canada under the Canadian Economic Develop- ment (CEDA) program. The previous record in the Port of Vancouver was set in May of 1967 when the British 'MS Sigsilver loaded million bushels bound for Karachi. According to Port Manager F. J. N. Spoke, only minimal alterations in normal harbour operation had to be instituted to accommodate the craft. He stated that two harbour anchorage berths were assigned the Amoco Cairo because of her phenominal size. The Amoco Cairo, with a length of 9161eet and a beam of 175 feet, drew 49 feet of water when fully loaded, ac- cording to Mr. Spoke. Special buoys had to be placed in the harbour traffic lane to warn other ships of her protruding length while sh'e was in one of three loading berths.

(CP) Resource specialists are studying a remote valley near here in what could become a blueprint for resource development. Jhe federal and provincial governments are involved, along with MacMillan Bloedel Ltd., the. giant forest company which eventually will log the valley. Object of the intense scrutiny is the 75-square-mile Nahmint Valley, about 13 miles southwest of. this Van- couver Island city. The watershed includes the River and a five- milelong lake where there is excellent fishing. Purpose of the study is to collect all possible informa- tion on the valley's resources so that the final logging plan will do the least possible Int Pipe 24.00 3.95 .12 V20 .28 Vt 42.00 .11 .11 3.25 7.12VS .22 31.75 4.55 .15 29.50 14.50 1.60 .15 1.00 13.00 6.25 1.02 3.95 2.80 .18 7.75 1.73 1.60 1.50 1.63 IAC Jannock Kaps Kelly Doug A Laurentide Metro Stores Massey Ferg McMillan Bloedell Moore Corp Mblsons A Molsons B Nachurs North S Cent Peyto Power Corp. .Price Co 27.6214 29.00 24.12V4 14.00 19.12V4 2.20 4.95 8.25 3.35 6.37V4 14.50 15.25 23.75 46.75 Simpson's Simp Sears Steel of Can A Selkirk A Texaco Trad Group A Tr Mtn Pipe Tr Can Pipe Union Carbide Union Gas Union .Oil United Siscoe Versatile Mlg 7.87'A 11.37V4 3.80 9.12V4 13.50 8.25 10.50 28.00 12.50 32.75 12.25 10.75 18.75 '8.25 8.50 4.15 7.25 Data are being collected on soils, geology, climate and hy- drology and an inventory is being made of timber, fish, wildlife and potential recrea- tional areas. "All the work now has been says study co- ordinator Brian Nyberg of the British Columbia Forest Ser- "We hope to have the plan- ning part done in March when all the agencies involved will get together and make recom- mendations on where the camp sites should be and things like that." In addition to the forest service, agencies involved include the fish and wildlife branch, Environment Canada, the department of mines and agriculture and the University of B.C. forestry faculty. Decision to undertake the study, which began last spring, came after a group of Vancouver Island residents wrote to the provincial government. Mr. Nyberg says June 30 is the deadline for forest service approval of MacMillan Bloe- del's development plan for the valley. He says he hopes the com- pany will agree to logging re- straints in certain areas of the watershed which the study has found to be critical for wildlife or recreation poten- tial. If the development plan is approved, a start on construc- tion of a logging road into the valley will proobably be made in late summer or early fall and will take several years to complete. will be a popular fishing area because it contains large rain- bow trout. There already is a fishing lodge on floats and several squatters' cabins, but the only access is by foot, boat or air- craft. Mr. Nyberg says MacMillan Bloedel, which has harvesting rights to trees in the valley, has co-operated throughout the study and has provided helicopter flying time to the researchers. Grant Ainscough, the com- pany's chief forester, says it recognizes that Nahmint Lake could become a significant recreational area when logg- ing road access is completed. "There are several ex- cellent natural recreational areas around the lake, par- ticularly at the beach.and river mouth at the head of the he says. "Under our land-use policy, these high value areas will be protected and if suitable ar- rangements can be made with government, they can be developed and managed for public use."

LONDON (CP) Although economic difficulties cut the world car market by more than 15 per cent last year, Britain's motor exports earn- ed a record million The Society of Motor Manu- facturers and Trades (SMMT) said earnings overseas in 1974 were 19 per cent up on the pre- vious year. Against the in- dustry's performance, motor imports into Britain rose only three per cent to million, which means the country's ex- ports exceeded imports by more than billion. Of last year's British motor exports, cars accounted for 6418 million and commercial vehicles topped million for the first time, with the rest being made up of com- .pouents, parts and accessories and tractors, heavy off-road vehicles, containers and in- dustrial engines The SMMT said the biggest growth area continues to be the export of components, parts and accessories. The high rate of British ve- hicle sales to other countries is continuing this year with several big orders. Leyland has won major contracts to supply buses to Venezuela and trucks to Iran; Ford is providing an initial batch of 100 transit buses for the French police and in the first three weeks of this year orders worth nearly 46 million have been placed for industrial diesel engines built by Rolls-Royce Motors.
