Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 26, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 26, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 27 Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Finance Minister John Turner offered little hope yesterday for an immediate decline in con- sumer loan interest rates despite declines in the rates banks charge their best cor- porate customers. Questioned in the Commons Turner declared that when the bank prime rate rose four points, the cost of consumer credit went up only by about one to 1.5 points. "In other Turner told the the con- sumer loan rate moved far more slowly up, and it will Four top banks reduce loan rate TORONTO (CP) Toronto Dominion Bank announced to- day it wants to get a "clearer picture of market develop- ments" before following other major Canadian banks in reducing prime interest rates. The bank's prime rate to its most credit-worthy customers currently is per cent. Four other banks reduced their prime lending rates to nine per cent in the last 24 hours. in a statement, Toronto Do- llank revenue up VANCOUVER (CP) The Bank of British Columbia reported revenue of million for the first quarter ended Jan. compared "with million for the same period of 1974. The bank reported total assets increased to from million as of Jan. 31, a 51 per cent growth' rate. A. E. Hall, chairman and chief executive officer, said earnings for the full year can- not be predicted because of unemployment and uncertain economic conditions. minion said both its prime and mortgage rates are under re- view. "We expect to have a further announcement when a clearer picture of market developments over the next few days is available." Toronto Dominion, however, announced it will decrease the rate of interest paid on premium savings ac- counts to per cent, effec- tive March 1. The Bank, of Nova Scotia earlier today announced a reduction in its prime rate to nine per cent from 9% per cent, following the action of the Royal Bank of Canada, the Bank of Montreal and the Mercantile Bank. BILLION PLANT PITTSBURGH (AP) Na- tional Steel Corp. says it plans to build a billion steel plant near Gary, Ind., and equip it with the latest pollution con- trols. "We intend to build the cleanest plant that has ever been constructed in this coun- try." George Stinson, top ex- ecutive of the nation's third largest steelmaker said. move more slowly down. Turner indicated that much tbe same thing Has happened on small business loans. He said the chartered banks had adopted a preferred rate for small business at his re- quest but, as interest rates come down, that differential diminishes. At the peak of interest rates, he said, the differentia) between the small business loan rate and the prime rate for other business was anywhere from 1.25 to 1.5 points. As the prime rate com- es down that preferential diminishes. Turner insisted it is not gov- ernment policy to restrict consumer credit. James McGrath John's East) urged that con- sumer loan rates' be pulled more into line with new prime lending rates as a means of lowering the inventory of du- rable goods that has been developing. "If the demand does not strengthen for consumer du- Turner responded, "the rate structure will reflect it." v The finance minister said the government does not in- tend to legislate a reduction in mortgage rates, because it wants to ensure a reasonable rate that will attract the amount of money into the mortgage market which, of itself, will start to reduce mortgage rates. Turner said he was primari- ly concerned with the differential between what the banks pay for the money they borrow and what they charge for the money they lend. "Those differentials have not Turner declared.

Growth Principal Growth Royfund Templeton Growth United Accumulative Universal Savings Vanguard Toronto mines, industrials (Supplied by Richardson Securities of Canada) Economist expects potato prices drop to continue EDMONTON (ACN) North American potato prices are likely to continue to for the remainder of this crop year. This is the opinion of Marcel Mai'sonneuve, marketing economist with Alberta agriculture. He reports that total American Canadian potato stocks are 21 per cent higher than they were this time last year, and says that -even this year's high storage losses will not be enough to prevent disposition of stocks from forcing prices down. The demand for both processed and fresh potatoes is not keeping up with the supply, and pressure on the fresh market will increase as frozen processed storage stocks are filled. When the processors have completed their purchase of pre contract potatoes, they will riot be placing high bids on open market produce. Ac- cording to Mr. Mainsonneuve, potato offers from Washington State have been reported to be as low as HO a ton. He says Alberta's smaller than average potato crop in 1974 has helped to maintain some stability in the fresh market in this province. To of potatoes. Tough contract negotiations are expected in view of present potato price declines. Although production costs may justify contract prices of per hundredweight or higher, open market potato prices in Washington are below per hundredweight. This fact, plus ample processed stocks, are strong indications that contract prices are unlikely to rise this year, he-said. some extent processors buy- ing potatoes on the open market, transportation differentials from Idaho and Washington state and good service to wholesalers will act as a buffer against serious price declines in the next month or so. "The reaction .in this province to the downward price movement in Idaho and Washington has been Mr. Maisonneuve says, "mainly because prices here have been below or only as high as U.S. prices." However, since continued Cattle imports down declines can be expected in the United States, he expects Alberta prices to drop another 50 cents to 60 cents per hundredweight before the 1974 crop has been completely sold. He also forecasts a smaller Canadian potato crop acreage this year because the high prices that maintained the 1974 acreage have dis- appeared. However, the cut- dropped 45 per cent to their lowest level in a decade, the agriculture department reports. MINES Acme Advocate Asb. Akaitcho Bralorne Broulan Bethlehem Bovis Brunswick Can.

The stock lasftraded at Chicago markets CHICAGO IAP) Commodity-fu- tures prices generally drifted lower on the major U.S. exchanges Tuesday. Must markets lacked outside incen- tive early in the day, but after noon it appeared that widespread selling became the major issue and, in most cases, buyers were very scarce. The selling Was set off after it was learned that the middle eastern oil- producing states would continue to use the United States dollar as a basis for their dealings. When this news filtered down to commodity pits precious metal futures declined. Silver futures in Chicago touched the 20-cents-an-ounce limit, and in New York the fall at the close was about as much. Gold futures in Chicago and New York were down about an ounce. The U.S. dollar, meantime, advanced against other world currencies. In farm commodity futures, soybeans lost 16 cents a bushel, wheat and corn 6 cents. Soybean oil lost about 75 points and a tori. Pork belly futures lost nearly 1 cent a pound on selling linked to a weak cash market and increased inven- tories. Shell eggs were mixed at the close: movement of country eggs was good, but inventories heavy. Live-hog futures also were mixed at the close. Copper futures closed about 75 points lower, following precious metals sales: however, there'also appeared to be some reaction to Peru's decision to slow down exports of copper in the face of lower prices. World sugar was down nearly 2 cents a pound at the close, but the limit had been touched earlier on profit-taking and apparent speculative short- position moves. Cotton gained about 25 points but cocoa fell sharply. At the close of grain trade, soybeans were 10 to 16 cents a bushel lower, March 5.24; wheat 1 to 614 lower. March 3.76; corn 2% to8 lower; March 2.72; and oats 1 lower to Ite higher. March 1.59H. Grain quotations Tuesday: Wheat: Mar 3.76; May 3.7214; Jul 3.63: Sep 3.70; Dec 3.78.
