Friday, January 22, 1971 - THI UTHBRIDGE HERALD - 17 Grain price review Oil, gas eases sale encouraging EDMONTON (CP) - The Alberta government gained $4.7 million here in the sale of oil and natural gas reserves, and a spokesman said he is hopeful that oil is in for another big surge in activity. "We're pleased with the results," said H. H. Somerville, deputy minister of mines and minerals, following the sale. "It was mainly wildcat acreage that was advertised." Mr. Somerville said the sale gives indications that oil exploration in Alberta is increasing. 'We are looking for increased activity because of the increase in crude prices and also because of higher deliveries." The sale brings total government revenue from the sale of crown reserve leases, reservations and licences for oil and natural gas to $24.1 million for the first 10 months of the fiscal year and to $6.4 million from Dec. 31, 1970.

Kraft bows to pressure OTTAWA (CP) - Kraft Foods Ltd. bowed to prices and incomes commission pressure to demonstrate that increases in its prices of margarine, shortening and salad oils last year were within the commission's guidelines, it was announced today. The commission investigated the pricing policies of seven of the eight Canadian producers of edible oil products and found them within the criteria agreed to last February, that price increases should be kept clearly below cost increases. But Kraft at first refused to divulge sufficient internal information to enable the commission to determine whether it was complying with the pricing criteria. A commission spokesman said that on Dec. 14 top executives of Kraft were warned that if they did not comply with the commission's request, it would invoke its powers as a royal commission of inquiry. It could subpoena the executives into court to answer its enquiries. The commission announced today that after these steps were taken to obtain compliance with the request for information, Kraft gave all the information needed. "The review shows that the price increases implemented by Kraft in 1970 are within the criteria," the commission said. NEW YORK (CP)-Oanadian dollar unchanged at 98 55-64 in terms of U.S. funds.
