Chicago markets CHICAGO (AP) Most farm com- modity futures declined on the Board of Trade Thursday in late profit-taking and stop-loss selling. Small gains that were maintained for a brief time in the last hour in wheat, corn, oats and in the soybean complex were virtually erased. Gold futures showed a small gain on (lie opening, following some firmness in spot gold at London. Prices then fell back but recovered to close virtual- ly unchanged. The demand for futures early in the session was rather surprising because most pits had closed on the weak side Wednesday. Soybeans and soybean oil had posted limit declines for the se- cond straight day. The early demand lifted soybeans 10 cents a bushel and oil about 30 points while meal gained a ton. Despite reports that some export business had been negotiated, all three commodities in the complex eased in the closing minutes as local profes- sionals took profits. Some strength in jsr.uns was attributed to expectations of export business with several European countries. Corn and oats strength also was attributed to inclement weather. When the soybean complex weakened grains also came under profittaking. At the close, wheat futures were I to 4 cents a bushel lower March 4.22, corn 3 lower to '.i higher March 3 38, oats (4 to 2U lower March 1.62 and soybeans 4Va lower to 4 higher, .Ian Currencies MONTREAL Friday's mid day foreign exchange selling rates supplied by the Hank of Montreal: Bermuda dollar 1.0100 France franc .2275 Germany mark .4175 Italy lira .001560 Japan yen .003330 Mexico peso .0805 Switzerland franc .3930 United States dollar .3995 United Kingdom pound 2.3700 U.S.S.K. nihle 1.3254 Quotations in Canadian funds.

C5684 THE CANADIAN PRESS Canadian political leaders came under attack Thursday from business executives who claimed they are jeopardizing Canada's links with the rest of the world. Robert Houston, president of the Canada-Japan trade council, said in a Regina speech that important overseas customers are baffl- ed and disillusioned with Canada. Canada was seen from abroad "as a nation of contractions. a country re- quiring foreign investment for domestic development, yet reluctant to accept that aid or unsure upon what terms to accept it." In Montreal, W. Earle McLaughlin, Royal Bank of Canada chairman, charged that Canada seemed to be retreating from its historical- ly open stance in world trade and investment. "This change in policy would seem to be motivated as much by an urge to slam the door on an increasingly turbulent and messy world outside, as it is by our own growing confidence that Canada can't go it alone." In other economic develop- ments Thursday: Javelin Ltd. says it has found a way to ob- tain oil from Alberta's oil sands more economically. The process involves the combined use of solvent together with infra-red irradiation to separate the oil from the sand. Jenkin, a British energy expert, said neither the oil sands or Britain's North Sea oil development will be economical unless a floor price is set for oil. He made the remarks during a tour of the Athabasca ore sands development at Fort McMurray, Alta. than 100 persons have lost their jobs because of the sudden closing of Sun Tool and Stamping Co. Ltd. in Windsor, Ont.
