Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-24,Lethbridge, Alberta The HwaU- Business Thurtdty, January 24,1*74 - THE LETHSniDOE KERAlc. - - Gold stocks up sharply; industrials drop slightly Stocks Miscellaneous Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal Midland Doherty Limited Appointed commissioner Richard Murray of Winnipeg, newiy-appolntedcommissioner of the federai government’s foreign investment review agency, gestures as tie taiits to reporters at a new/s conference in Ottawa. Trade Minister Aiastair Glilespie Is in the background. Oil firms face problem with development funds OTTAWA (CP) - The irresponsibility of Middle East countries, coupled with the present economic climate in Canada, has made it virtually impossible for oil companies to allocate development funds, industry spokesmen said in interviews Wednesday. It’s just so ... chaotic that lU can’t make decisions :rom day to day," said Fred Hildenbratid, president ;o| Atlantic Riihfleld, one of a multitude of oilmen here to observe the goings-on at the national energy conference. He was echoed by. other Calgary oilmen, including J. Louis Lebel, vice-president of Chevron Standard, and Jotin Poyen, president of the Canadian Petroleum Association (CPA). "In the political and economic climate, we’re in today, it’s impossible to make a rational decision about investment or anything,” said Mr, Lebel. The problem, Mr. Hilden^ brand said, arises from the fact that federal and provincial govenimehts change tbeir positions almost daily. This cristes uncertainty in the industry, with the result that it is afraid to make any financial commitments. UNDER FIEE Meanwhile, the companies were under constant fire for showing enormous profits because they were unable to plow the money back into exploration and development. Record exports shrivel supplies of U.S. wheat WASHINGTON (AP) - The United States wheat supply, ahready crimp^ by record exports, has shrivelled further and soon may force President Nixon to suspend im port quotas so that U.S. bakers can get grain and flour from Canada. The agriculture department said Wednesday that wheat reserves may be down to 182 million bushels by July 1, the lowest since 1947. A week ago the department estimated the stockpile would be 205 million bushels. “It does indicate a' little tighter situation ... and increases the possibility of importing wheat or flour,” Assistant Agriculture Secretary Carroll Brunthaver told a reporter. Nixon has the authority to suspend quotas for wheat imports. Those currently are limited to about 800,000 a year. The U.S. tariff commission is studying the effects of removing quotas but its report will not be ready until Feb. 15. Brunthaver, under question- "LOANS $as,0p0.00 and over... Real Fast ... on any typo o( property . . . fast courteous service . ; . T10 red tape . . . Don't disturb your low interest first moriqage. ' ing, said White House action on raising the annual quota may come sooner. He also said the United States is conducting country-to-country talks with the Soviet Unicm and Japan to see whether they will delay orders of U.S. wheat until the 1974 crop is ready for harvest. POSTPONE ORDERS Previously, the department had asked private exporters to ask their foreign customers to post^ne taking some of their U.S. wheat orders. The Soviets already have delayed 18.4 million bushels through that arrangement. Brunthaver said this procedure is continuing with other foreign customers. Wednesday's report showed U.S. wheat exports for the year ending June 30,1974, now are expected to be a record 1.2 billion bushels, up 25 million from what the department estimated a week ago. During 1972-73, when huge Soviet orders helped dr^in reserves, total exports were 1.18 billion bushels.    . Bakers have charged that unless wheat-export controls are imposed bread prices may soar to fl per loaf by late spring. Brunthaver apd other Nixon administration officials have called the prediction alarmist and inaccurate. Asked whether the companies were not, in fact, “crying all the way to the bank,” Mr. Hildenbrand said this does not apply on the long term. "That’s a hell of a shortterm deal!” Mr. Poyen said the “lifeblood of this industry is to keep reinvesting” and if that is made difficult or even impossible 'ibecause ?of political ' decisions “then we’re in danger of chasing out our explorers to the point where we won’t have any reserves left.” Mr. Poyen’s assistant, Charles Pratt of Ottawa, said the exploration branches of the major oil companies, as well as the hundreds of smaller independent firms, depend on reinvestment of capital. Without that capital, they go elsewhere.

The last de facto devaluation of the floating yen came Jan, 7 when the Japanese central bank decided it could no longer afford to maintain its value at the previous rate of 2B0 yen to the dollar. Japanese banking sources indicated that a further devaluation-making Japanese exports cheaper and helping to reduce the huge balance of payments deficit expected as a result of quadrupled oil prices— mieht be welcome to the central bank. The rush to buy dollars 'came as the Tokyo foreign exchange market reopened Wednesday for the first time since France floated the franc Saturday. Bank rate cut MINES Acme Advocate Asb.
