Saturday, February 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 29 The Herald- Business Stock markets rally strongly By SANDRA INGALSBE Canadian Press Staff Writer Stock markets rallied strongly this week, fuelled by reports of higher fourth-quarter profits, but lower volume indicated buying was cautious. The Toronto market stretched its gaining streak to seven advances, rising every day this week. The industrial index, considered the main indicator of market trend, rose 5.58 points, largest weekly rise this year, to close at 220.41, highest since Nov. 22, 1973. At Montreal, the composite index was up 3 96 to 228 14 Analysts said the continuing flow of much-improved fourthquarter profits and a stronger New York market contributed to the gain. At New York, the Dow Jones average of 30 industrials rose 35 67 to 855.99 this week The market was Gold LONDON (API Friday's closing gold prices (in U.S. dollars an ounce) London-163.00 Paris-169 62 Frankfurt-159 39 Zurich-161 00 Hong per kilo Metals LONDON (AP) Friday's closing metals (in pounds, sterling a metric ton.

One analyst commented that the strength at New York was possibly on hopes of an end to the Arab oil embargo and "just as likely that the market had little further to discount and rose instead." Interest rates continued to decline in the United States, increasing speculation that Canadian prime rates also may soon be lowered Brokers say there is still a lot of money on the sidelines and a decline in interest rates could coax these investors back into the market. Toronto golds were again irregular, gaming modestly on the week although the price of gold hit record levels in Europe. The index closed 'the week at 550.51, up 3 or Dealers say the price of gold can be expected to go as high as an ounce as uncertainty about the value of paper money and lack of progress in reform- ing the world monetary system make gold a relatively safe investment STILL VOLATILE Gold shares will remain volatile with sharp increases and equally sharp corrections on profit-taking, they add. Toronto's base metal index closed the week at 10549 off 2.87. Shares, of British Columbia-based mining companies were lower following the province's announcement of propsed royalty legislation. The Toronto western oil index was up 5.95 to 262 30 Shares of oil companies with North Sea interests continued to reflect uncertainty about the outcome of the Feb. 28 election in Britain and fears of nationalization if the Labor party is elected Volume declined this week at Toronto to 17.35 million shares from 22 16 million last week, but value rose to million from million. At Montreal, volume was 7.43 million shares and value million compared with seven million shares and million last week. REGULAR CATTLE SALE EVERY MONDAY AT 11 A.M.

The new city hall (left) with its twin curved towers and "oyster shell" is in stark contrast to the old Victorian city hall Hecklers take their lumps on British election trail By HUGH A. MULLIGAN MANCHESTER (AP) A formidable foe in any British election is the heckler, the fel-' low who looms at the back of the hall to interrupt a candidate with booming invective. Once again the heckler is plying his trade as campaigning for the Feb. 28 general election increases. "What about the price of a pint under an inter- loper demanded from the au- dience recently as Opposition Leader Harold Wilson ticked off rising food prices under the Conservative regime of Prime Minister Edward Heath. "Don't talk to me about beer, Wilson eagerly challenged his assailant. There was fire in his eye, but a taunting smile at the edges of his lips. Aggressive and bitingly sarcastic, the Labor party leader is a past roaster at matching hecklers and consuming them with gusto before his supporters. Where others try to cool off a situation, Wilson thrives on heating it up, forcing his antagonist to lose either his nerve1 or his temper. TAKES CONTROL Before he got through with the heckler, the chap had somehow been transferred into "one of those Common Market harmonizers who would meddle with the taste of your English beer, English bread and English mustard." The heckler hadn't even mentioned bread or mustard or the Common Market, but Wilson, sensing the crowd's roused ire, moved in for the kill. Former prime minister Harold Macmillan, a brilliant orator who found door-to-door campaigning was as skilful at confusing hecklers as Wilson is at stirring them up. Macmillan's ploy was to stall conspicuously for time. It took him several moments to- realize he was being interrupted, then there was the frantic search about the hall, always in the wrong direction, to discover who might be so unkind. By this time, the heckler was a lonely figure rising from a landscape of scowling faces. Macmillan then moved in to lavish the heckler with kind- ness, or massacre him with massive tolerant urbanity. "1 always tried to imagine my mother was somewhere in the he said in explaining his style to Heath.

Recently in Scotland a lis- tener kept punctuating all Heath's arguments for sanity in labor relations with the epithet "rubbish." "Must be a Sassenach in the Heath laughed off the taunt by using the old Scottish word for an Englishman or, more precisely, a lowland Sa- xon. In this election, connoisseurs of the fine art are being denied anything more than a TV glimpse at Liberal Leader Jeremy Thorpe. Still, his wit flickers when he takes on the pundits in his daily news conference over closed-circuit TV. "Are you thinking of resign- ing as head of the party if you lose your a reporter asked. "Are you thinking of resign- ing from Thorpe replied with a sly grin, then added: "Rather like Queen Victoria, the possibility of defeat has not entered my head." By ERIC PACE New York Times Service NEW YORK She is a successful career woman at the top of her field, but it's her perfume and her shapely legs that first endeared her to the fictional vice president who is the hero of Spiro T. Agnew's forthcoming political novel, and romance rears its head. The fictional career woman is Meredith Lord, the first woman secretary of health, education and welfare one of three women characters whose tangled personal lives are described in the novel, tentatively titled, "A Very Special Relationship." Scott Meredith, the New York literary agent, has announced that the novel is to be published in hardcover by Playboy Press, he said, has bought rights to it for between and The publishing house is a division of Playboy Enterprises, Inc., which also puts out Playboy magazine, a publication not noted for reticence about relations between the sexes. But in discussing the novel's plot and the characters, Meredith and Edward Kuhn Jr., the publisher's editorial director, insisted that the romance would be tastefully described. "Meredith Lord is very strong-willed and she's a very good-looking Meredith said at a news conference held at his Fifth Avenue office. He said the fictional vice president, Porter Newton Canfield, was "angry at her toughness and attracted to her physically." Kuhn said that Agnew has written only a few dozen pages of the book, which is to be over 300 pages long. He added that the female characters loom large in the preliminary character sketches Agnew has prepared, and in the section he has been writing recently. This describes a cabinet meeting, and it is to be the first part of the novel published in the Ladies Home Journal, which has bought serial rights. Kuhn and Meredith declined to answer questions that could provide much in the way of details about the fictional' Miss Lord, and the other two main women characters the vice president's secretary, and his aristocratic wife. "I think Mr. Agnew has always been interesting to women and to women Kuhn said. "He's a big, attractive, outspoken kind of guy and I think the author's view of women as it shows up in the novel will be of interest." Community Auction Sales Association Ltd.
