Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-30,Lethbridge, Alberta Just in case John Sawhill, deputy administrator of the Federal Energy Office In Washington, hoids up a sheet of gasoiine rationing coupons at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. The coupons began streaming off the presses last Friday to be ready on a standby basis in case the nation has to go to formal rationing during the current energy crisis. Former school teacher lucky market investor TORONTO (CP) - Jim Carroll, a former Windsor, Ont., school teacher, has turned $750 into more than {150,000 since 1972 by trading in currencies and commodities. While stock markets have been in a state of distress,- a worldwide shortage of crops and other conrimodities has made the futures market a fertile area for speculation, and a lot of investors have moved in. Mr. Carroll has always ha^ a clear objective. It began to take shape when he majored in philosophy at the University of Western Ontario at London. "The most important thing to me is freedom," he says. "I’ve got no drive to own a Cadillac, b*jt I know you have to have money to have freedom.” Mr. Carroll was teaching In ■Windsor’s high school of commerce in June, 1972, when Anthony Barber, Britain’s chancellor of the exchequer, was insisting that the pound would not be floated from its pegged value,. -    ^ Mr. Carroll, who Ifad been" studying the factors that might affect the value of the pound, felt that Mr. Barber’s statement sounded hollow. He gathered together $750 and went short on the pound. “At that time,” he says, “|750 meant a lot to us." His wife, Mary Pat, was apprehensive. It wasn't so much the fear of losing the money but “she wasn’t that anxious for us to make a lot of money.” Within a few days, Britein unpegged the pound, its value floated downwards, and the Carrolls were up $12,000. Decline predicted in sugar prices VANCOUVER (CP) -Sugar prices will decline by the middle of the year, W. C. Brown, newly-elected president of the Canadian Sugar Institute, predicted Tuesday. Mr. Brown said his prediction is risky, but that he expects a number of favorable developments, such as harvesting of a bountiful crop from the southern hemisphere, to come together by summer to reduce prices. Failure to negotiate a new international sugar agreement, which lapsed in 1973, resulted in higher prices for the short term he said. But the sugar-producing countries should now react more quickly to the sugar- demand Imbalance, bringing raw sugar prices to a more realistic level, he predicted. Mr. Brown said he doub^ any new international agreement will be negotiated on sugar as long as the global market favors producers and exporters. But he said over a five year period the average price of sugar in Canada will probably be lower than it would be under a global agreement. Per-capita sugar consump* tion in Canada has remain^ stable for the last 10 years at about 100 pounds a year, said Mr. Brown.' About 88 per cent of this is refined from raw cane sugar, while the rest is from domestically-grown sugar beets. Firm receives okay to double price WASHINGTON (CP) - El Paso Natural Gas Co. has been given permission by the U.S. Federal Power Commission (FPC) to pay nearly double its former price for gas imported to the Pacific Northwest from British Columbia. The FPC’s unanimous ruling was handed down Frid^, although it did not become public knowledge until today.

Calgary. Montreal MidUnd Dotacrty Limited WESIEfWOttS    HoytlTriMt “Once I had that $12,000, it was just unbelievable how things turned out- I grabbed cotton and copper right off the bottom.’’ That is, he bought futures contracts at a time when the ' prices- of cotton and copper were beginning a long upward trend- Mr. Carroll quit teaching at Christmas, 1972, to devote his full time to trading commodities. He says it’s a fulltime job. NEED LUCK Aside from dedication, he feels luck is an important prerequisite to success in the commodities market. He hasn’t made up his mind what to do with his life, but he doesn’t want to go on making money forever. "I might go back to school, or I might just play chess in 1974.” First of all, though, he wants to make enough money to have the freedom he talks about. "I’m not at the point yet where I can forget about the commodities.” If he had $500,000, Mr. Carroll says, he’d put most of the money into gold bullion “just so that I wouldn’t be wiped out by wild inflation or some other disaster." "Then I’d put enough money in short-term paper to give me an income of atnut $18,000 a year. That’s all we. really need." Incomes up OTTAWA (CP) ~ The combined net incomes of the seven major domestic airlines rose 33.8 per cent in the first eight months of 1973 to $23.7 million, a Statistics Canada report shows. The report says the total net Income reported for the similar period of 1972 was $17.7 million.

In mid-November, the B.C, government decreed an increase in wellhead gas prices and the price to El Paso went to 61 cents. The FPC said it was only authorizing El Paso to pay the higher price, not to pass it along to its wholesale customers. However, the company is expected to flic shortly for authority to increase its customers' charges. A company official here said El Paso had continued to pay the old price for B.C. gai since mid-November, believing it needed FPC aHUtonty to pay more.

Silver and cotton futures posted limit declines while cp{iper. coffee, cocoa and orange Juice prices also were down. World sugar closed on a mixed tone but wool futures gained up to 2.5 cents. Cattle futures on the Mercantile Exchange fell the limit of $1 per hundredweight while shell eggs declined the limit of ISO points. Pork belly futures closed lower by more than 100 points, and live bog futures fell 20 cents. Wheat futures were down 17 cents on the Board of Trade, while soybeans lost neariy 14 cents a bushel and com and oats were down five cents. Soybean oil declined the limit of 100 points, or one cent a pound, but meal was mi^ed at the close. Lower cash steer prices and improved marketings alofig with easier grain prices tended to influence sellers of live cattle futures, while shell eggs reacted to increased inventories of egg stocks in the country. Live hogs also declined on increased marketings as well as the weakness in grains. Profit taking by recent bmgs strongly motivated sellers of grains and commodities at the board of trade. There were several rallies in wheat and soybeans but these fell apart due to lack of firm support. The weakness in wheat appeared to have influenced selling of com and oats.
