Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta WtdiHMday, 20, If THE LECHSHiDGE 5f working After spending 65 years in the tailoring business, 73-year-old Angelo Ruocco of Toronto says he keeps thinking about retiring but just can't put his needle down. Over 'the years he has made suits for lieutenant-governors, senators, judges and lumber magnates. Commitments to Bank Act won't be altered Turner Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Finance Minister John Turner made public commitments at the Western Economic Opportunities Conference to amend the Bank Act and they will not be altered by criti- cism from tire Canadian Bank- ers' Association. That was the word the bank- ers received when they at- tacked the federal proposals Tuesday in a submission to the finance minister. The Bankers' Association was also critical of western premiers contending that they were "entirely wrong" in claiming Gasoline broker faces charges TRENTON, N.J. (AP) A gasoline broker who offered to sell New Jersey dealers more than a million gallons of fuel a week for a year was indicted last month on charges of gaso- line theft, the state attorney- general's office disclosed. A spokesman identified the broker as Saidutti of Cherry Hill. K.J. he said Sai- dutti was one of three men in- dicted Jon. 3 with three other men on charges of stealing several thousand gallons of gasoline from a Hess Oil Co. terminal in Pennsauken, N.J., last August. The disclosure came shortly after a news conference at which Saidutti and another broker, Raymond Brault of Missoula, Mont., said they could provide 1.3 million gallons of gasoline a week at a price that would push the retail cost to 66.8 cents per gallon. Wheat supply records drop WINNIPEG (CP) Visible supplies of Canadian wheat marginally during the week ended Feb. 13 to a total of 179.4 million bushels compared with the previous week's total of 177.9 million. In its weekly report, the Canadian Grain Commission said the total was, however, far below the supplies of the same period a year ago which totalled 245.4 million bushels. Farmers marketed seven million bushels of wheat during the week under review compared with just 3.6 million the previous week. Saidutti and Brault said the gasoline would come from a foreign refinery which they would not identify while the negotiations were in progress. Newsprint price to increase VANCOUVER (CP) An increase of a ton in the price of 30-pound standard newsprint for the western re- gion of North America, effec- tive March 1, was announced Tuesday by MacMillan Bloedel. The company, Canada's largest forest products firm, said the new price will be a ton for customers in the British Columbia lower mainland and Vancouver Island, a ton for the B.C. Interior and Alberta and a ton in the western United States. The current prices, ranging from to have been in effect since last Sept. 1, when MacMillan Bloedel increased prices by a ton. A company spokesman said "recent very sharp increases in the cost of energy and raw materials made it necessary to increase the price of newsprint by some 12 per cent at this time." The spokesman said oil costs had tripled and there had been significant increases in the cost of chemicals. Mining production tax proposed by B.C. gov't VICTORIA (CP) Long- awaited legislation setting new mining royalties took the spotlight in the British Columbia legislature Tuesday, Mines Minister Leo Nimsick brought in the Mineral Royalties Act, which provides for a basic five-per-cent annual tax on mineral production in the province starting in 1975. This year producers will pay a 2V2 per cent royalty. The bill also allows ttie government to lake advantage of escalating world prices by permitting the cabinet to set a designated value for minerals and if the price in a year increases more than 20 per cent above that level, the government would get half of the increase. Lower basic royalties are provided for in the legislation if the price falls 10 per cent or more below the five-year average, and a redaction of one per cent would be allowed if the mineral is shipped to a smelter or refinery in the province. Mr. Nimsick said outside the House the new legislation will add an extra million to the province's revenues this year. that the banks "drained deposits" from the west. At the western conference held in Calgary last July the finance minister said the federal government would be prepared to propose to parliament amendments to the Bank Act. The amendments would permit a provincial government or its agencies to own initially up to 25 per cent of the voting shares of a new holdings to be reduced to a maximum of 10 per cent over a reasonable period of up to 10 per cent of the voting shares of an existing bank. Canada's 10 chartered banks said in their brief to the government issued Tuesday, that the provincial government ownership idea be considered only as part of the larger question of Bank Act revision. Such a proposal involved fundamental long-term issues, the banks said. The association believed the proposals would be harmful "not only for the Canadian monetary and banking sys- tem, but for the public at large." Asked for the finance minis- ter's reaction to this criticism a spokesman for the finance department said the minister had pointed out he had made a firm commitment at the western economic conference. He will proceed at the upcoming session of parliament with the suggested changes in the bank act. The Canadian Bankers' association said the banks are in full sympathy with the desire of the federal government to facilitate establishment of new.char- tered banks, having assisted already in this respect in recent years. It would expect to continue to do so for all responsible groups. But the association believes the provision of capital by pro- vincial governments could raise doubts about the future independence and success of the fledgling bank. The bankers' association said it had "serious reservations about any amendment to the Bank Act that would directly or indirectly permit provincial governments to own shares in a chartered bank and to exercise voting rights..." It added, "The principle of such a move is questionable and may in fact produce harm rather than benefit. Currenc Brazil hai devalued the cru- zeiro, setting the buying rate at 6.41 per dollar, and the selling rate at 8.55 per dollar. It is the second devaluation and readjustment of the cru- zeiro this year. The cruzeiro was devalued five times hi relation to the U.S. dollar in 1973, and revalued once to offset a devaluation by the U.S. of its dollar.
