(CP) Good news for the housewife faced with spirall- ing food costs. Ed Morgan, secretary manager of the B.C. Egg Marketing Sunday an- nounced a five cent a dozen reduction in egg prices, effective today. Mr. Morgan said "beginning Monday, Jan. 20, extra large, large, medium and peewee eggs will be five cents a dozen cheaper. The new B.C. retail prices for next should therefore bo down by five cents a dozen. Mr. Morgan said the provin- cial Department of Agriculture's formula for cost of egg production is 69'A cents a dozen. "The new price drop means that provincial egg producers will receive an average price for all grades of less than 51 cents and will be forced to carry the loss of 19 cents a dozen themselves." Mr. Morgan said it is the se- cond price cut in three weeks. He said the earlier reduction was a similar five cents a dozen. The current retail price for grade A large eggs on the Lower Mainland is 80 to 85 cents a dozen. Mr. Morgan said B.C producers are balancing production with current provincial demand. But he said the current egg surplus in other provinces is spilling over into He said some of that surplus is being offered on the B.C. market at prices which result in heavy finan- cial losses to all producers. He said "negotiations now are taking place between the B.C. Department of Agriculture and producer representatives to include eggs under the Farm Income Assurance Act." 'Three false accusations' are denied by Syncrude president Fear of Arab takeover EDMONTON (CP) Frank Spragins, president of Syncrude Canada Ltd., denied Saturday recent ac- cusations against the Syncrude project by Mel Hurtig and J. C. Russell of the Committee for an Independent Canada. In a statement, Mr. Spragins denied the spokesmen's charges that the slowdown of the Syncrude project is a ploy to put pressure on governments, that most benefits will go to Americans or that the project will add little to Canada's net energy supply. He said Mr. Hurtig and Mr. Russell have made "three false accusations." The Syncrude slowdown is an effort to reduce expen- ditures until new participants are found, he said. "That three participants are unable to carry the cost of the project which was originally shouldered by four companies and which has, in effect, doubled, should come as no surprise to anyone." He also said the increase to billion from billion in the total cost of the project should not surprise anyone who has seen estimated capital costs of other large projects, such as the Montreal Olympics, the Alaska pipeline and many refinery and chemical and refinery projects. To support his position, Mr. Spragins quoted price increases since last year of 180 per cent for steel con- duit and 30 per cent for reinforcing bars and 24 per cent in six months for valves. "Inflationary factors such as these are responsible for approximately half of the project cost increase." In reply to Mr. Russell's suggestion that recent price increases for Canadian crude oil should compensate for added construction costs, Mr. Spragins said almost all of the recent increases went to federal and provin- cial royalties and taxes. He also denied a suggestion that construction costs are being ballooned to eliminate operating profits which would be shared with the Alberta government. Mr. Spragins' statement said accounting prodecures to be developed by the province and the company will prevent any hidden costs. In addition, if the project proved unprofitable, the government could convert its net profit participation to a gross royalty of 7'A per cent on oil extracted. The Syncrude president expressed shock that Mr. Hurtig and Mr. Russell used "intellectually dishonest evidence" to try to show construction would benefit American companies primarily. He estimated 70 per cent of all purchases would be made in Canada and more than two thirds of the total engineering will be done by Canadian engineers. in Canada unfounded 'Ambulances are ignored' says Ontario minister LONDON, Ont. (CP) John White, former treasurer of Ontario and now minister without portfolio, said Sunday there is no foundation for fears of an Arab takeover of major Canadian industries. Mr. White, who represents London-South, told the Cana- dian Arab Society that "the Arab states are ordering their affairs in such a way so as not to have an undue influence in the internal affairs of other nations." Mr. White said when he vis- ited the Middle East on a fact- finding mission in November, he did not get the impression the Arab states were using economic as oil 'political ends. "We were afraid of being taken over by the Americans, then we were afraid of being taken over by the Japanese. Now, we're afraid of being taken over by the I don't think this should be taken seriously." Mr. White described his trip to the Middle East as a search for surplus oil money to finance major expansion plans of Ontario Hydro. "Since Ontario Hydro need- ed enormous sums for expan- sion and the oil states had a huge surplus of funds for investment, it seemed my obligation to visit the Middle he said. Mr. White said he urged Arab leaders to allow Canada to borrow these funds, rather than buy up large pieces of Canadian industry and land. The mission brought back new contracts for trade, a bet- ter knowledge of Middle East government. EDMONTON (CP) The manager of a local ambulance company has criticized motorists who fail to give am- bulances the right of way. Ed Kalynchuk, manager of Smith's Ambulance Ltd., said in an interview Sunday there has been an increase in the number of incidents resulting from cars failing to pull over when overtaken by an am- bulance. "It's unbelievable how motorists ignore ambulances rushing to hospital during emergency runs." Mr. Kalynchuk was com- menting on an incident which occurred Friday night, when a Smith's ambulance was in- volved in a minor traffic acci- dent while rushing a 10 year old girl to hospital. The child had drowned, in a public swimming pool and failed to revive when mouth to nouth resuscitation was performed at the pool. Mr. Kalynchuk said that en route to hospital, another car turned in front of the am- bulance, causing the traffic accident. The driver was able to con- tinue to University Hospital where the girl, whose name was not released, was declared dead on arrival. Main CNR line reopened EDMONTON (CP) The main Canadian National Railways line between Saska- toon and Edmonton was reopened Saturday night after being closed for about 24 hours following a derailment 35 miles northwest of Biggar, Sask. There were no injuries in the derailment of 15 cars on a freight train. Passenger trains were rerouted over the CNR's northern line through North Battieford when the main line was closed.
