Edmonton custodians get boost EDMONTON (CP) Public school trustees ratified a one-year contract with 760 custodians and custodial assistants Tuesday night, approving an across-the-board wage increase of a year. Under the old contract, custodians received to a year, with head custodians receiving up to The new agreement, which was ratified earlier by Local 474 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees and is retroactive to Jan. 1, 1974 gives custodial assistants an increase of 12.5 per cent for a wage of an hour. The Edmonton Public School Board also agreed Tuesday to discuss and renegotiate part of a contract ratified by the city's teachers in early 1973. The Edmonton local of the Alberta Teachers Association requested the move, saying a 6.5-per-cent wage increase to teachers did not take into ac- count the substantial inflation of the last few months. In its weekly report on grain stocks, the commission said marketing of wheat by farmers increased slightly to 3.6 million bushels, but supplies were drawn down by exports of 3.0 million bushels and domestic use of 800.000 bushels. At the same time a year ago, visible supplies of wheat totalled 256.4 million bushels. Farmers' marketings from the start of the crop year Aug. 1 through Dec. 26 totalled 169.0 million bushels, well below marketings of 289.8 million during the same period in the previous crop year. Wheat exports during the week ended Dec. 26 were down from 5.1 million bushels the previous week. Total wheat exports for the crop year were 151.8 million bushels, well below the figure of 232.5 million for the com- parable period in 1972. Figures' for other grains, with the previous week's figures in brackets, are: Durum 32.6 million bushels (33.1 oats 17.1 million (17.3 barley 99.6 million (100.2 rye 8.4 million (8.3 ilaxseed 9.0 million (9.0 million) and rapeseed 15.7 million (16.2 FARMERS' MARKETINGS: Durum bushels oats barley 1.6 million (2.4 rye flaxseed and rapeseed (1.2 OVERSEAS CLEARANCES: Durum bushels (1.1 oats barley 1.2 million (4.9 rye nil flax- seed and rapeseed Stocks of all principal grains at Thunder Bay declin- ed to 27.6 million bushels dur- ing the week ended Dec. 26, compared to 32.3 million the previous week and 44.3 million a year earlier.

Canada not listed on Arab oil ban OTTAWA (CP) Of- ficially, Cana da has not been placed on tho Saudi Arabian oil boycott list. In practice, the opposite iseems to be the case.

Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said later no oil has been delivered from Saudi Arabia since Nov. 23. The Saudi government seems to have taken a clear stand but officials down the line "are acting the opposite he said. Canada normally imports about barrels of crude oil daily. About 30 per cent is supplied by Arab sources and Saudi Arabia makes up 40 per cent of the Arab total. Politically-motivated Arab production cuts and heavy in- ternational demand for oil has reduced the normal flow to Canada. Official import figures, tabulated by the national energy board, have not been released for the last three months of 1973. However, an energy board spokesman said last week the daily average for the three-monthperiod is expected to be about barrels. Europe seeks oil deal PARIS (AP) West Eu- ropean countries are going ahead with new deals with the Arab oil producers despite the United States government's talk of a joint policy for the consumer countries.

Kissinger said Monday that President Nixon will be mak- ing contact with about 20 countries this week, and of- ficials in Brussels said Nixon is thinking about a conference on oil supplies in Washington next month. Meanwhile, the French gov- ernment has made a deal with Saudi Arabia guaranteeing it 10 million tons of Saudi oil a year for the next three years in addition to the 30 million tons France already buys.
