As the world's largest pro- ducer of sugar cane, Cuba has taken these recent actions to shake loose a large per- centage of its crop for dump- ing on the world market at record-high prices: has joined with 19 other Latin-American and Carib- bean sugar-producing coun- tries in an attempt to control price and production. is trying to get out from under some of its long-term commitments to Communist- bloc and free-world countries, which tie up more than two- thirds of its sugar at lower- than-world-market prices. is cutting domestic con- sumption by imposing yet lower sugar quotas on its eight million people. Representatives from 20 countries met privately on the remote Mexican island of Cozumel last November to discuss the world sugar mar- ket. Spearheaded by Cuba, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and the Dominican Republic, sugar officials from Latin America and the Caribbean laid plans to set up a "co-or- dinating organization to pro- tect the interests of the ex- porting as a Mexi- can government announce- ment put it. Oil firms, union settle wage pact DENVER (AP) The president of the oil workers union says contract negotiations with United States oil companies are on a "mop-up basis" despite strikes by more than union members. A.F. Grpspiron, president of the Oil, Chemical and Atomic Workers International, an- nounced Sunday settlement of contracts with Mobil and Cities Services oil companies, He said at a news conference those agreements were similar to earlier contracts which gave union workers 26.8-per-cent wage c 1 i bales good TORONTO icp) Joseph Grasso, general manager of Polysar Ltd. of Sarnia, said in an interview that sales of the company's condominiums in the last three weeks have been picking up "a little bit." He said 60 of 382 units built for sale have been sold. The com- pany's controversial modular building concept has had poor consumer response. IMPOSE QUOTAS CANBERRA (AP) The Australian government has placed tariff quotes on im- ports of men's shirts, woven pyjamas and other woven nightwear. The quotas are designed to limit imports of shirts to 4.5 million garments in 1975 and 8.5 million in 1976. increases over two-year periods. He said nine contracts have been signed, covering of the union's members. Oil workers made about an hour under their old contracts. Despite the new contracts, Mobil, Gulf and Texaco were negotiating to end strikes at refineries in Texas. More than workers were on strike over local issues at refineries in Beaumont and Port Arthur, Tex. A strike of union mem- bers against Union Oil Co. refineries in Texas, California and Illinois appeared "no closer to a union spokesman said. The countries involved mar- ket more than 60 per cent of the world's exports. Some 3.5 million tons of their produc- tion goes to the United States. Critics of U.S. policy, in- cluding American growers, say Congress added to the possibility that sugar prices will remain high for years by allowing the 40-year-old Sugar Act to die. Under the act, for- eign suppliers except Cuba were assigned quotas for ship- ment to the U.S., the world's largest consumer. This sugar was often bought below the world price in recent year's. After the act expired Jan. 1, foreign producers were no longer obliged to ship sugar to the U.S. This may lead to shortages in the domestic market and even higher prices, these critics say. Although the American market has been closed to Cuba since 1964, Castro has had no trouble selling its crop to Russia, Eastern Europe and such non-Communist countries as England, Spain, France and Japan. Most of its production is tied up in long-term agreements, much of it on a barter basis. Dr. Leon Goure of the Uni- versity of Miami Centre for International Studies, who monitors Soviet and Cuban r J Concrete construction Concrete construction techniques have changed dramatically in recent years and much of the new technology is in use for construction of Toronto's Royal Bank Plaza. To pour concrete in winter, elaborate precautions are taken to ensure that it stays warm during the setting process. Sand and stone are heated before the con- crete is mixed and the catalytic action of adding cement adds additional warmth. trade practices, says the So- Tne forms are also pre-heated by installing diesel oil-burning heaters on the floor viet Union buys roughly 30 per below and closing in the floor with plastic sheeting to contain the heat and warm the cent and other Communist- forms. After the concrete is poured and smoothed, insulated blankets are laid over the top, keeping the mixture at 50 to 60 degrees for up to 24 hours. Plant expands ICHIBUCTO, N.B. (CP) Atlantic Distillers Ltd. has be- gun a expansion of its plant facilities here. The expansion will provide full aging, production, storage and bottling facilities for sev- eral rums and vodkas the company produces. Wayne W. Chahley, general sales manager, said the prod- ucts are produced to appeal specifically to the tastes and preferences of Atlantic Canada. Atlantic Distillers, part of the Seagram Co. Ltd., will first test the New Brunswick market, then Nova Scotia followed by expansion into Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. :ountries an equal An undetermined amount of the remaining 40 per cent is tied up in agree- ments with free-world coun- Castro said in a recent speech that Cuba would honor its contracts. But there have been strong indications from Cuban offi- cials at international meet- ings that the government is trying to rework some of them to take advantage of high world prices. In addition, Havana radio says Cuba is exerting every effort "to extract even the last grain of sugar" from the crop now being harvested. The 1974-75 Cuban sugar crop is expected to be slightly more 'than the estimated 5.5 million tons refined last sea- son. _ Frotit-takers active Market continues decline TORONTO (CP) The To- ronto stock market continued to lose ground Monday with all major sectors declining in light mid-morning trading.

(CP) Ben Ginter says that unless the provincial govern- rnent imposes a quota system to force hotels in British Columbia to order at least 10 per cent of their beer from his company, he might shut down his brewery here. Mr. Ginter, who produces Uncle Ben's beer and Soft drinks, -said lack of orders might force him to shut down the brewery when a second plant opens in Richmond, B.C. He said a quota system would provide enough orders to convert the brewery here to a soft drfnk factory and guarantee work to the plant's 30 permanent workers. Alf Nunweiler, minister without portfolio responsible for northern affairs says he has asked i Attorney General Alex Macdonald Close- ly at the proposal. Mr. Ginter sais quota systems for his beer have been imposed in Alberta and Manitoba Most of the employees here were laid off Jan. 6, but Mr. Ginter said they will be called back to work this week.
