The shipments included large deliveries to China and Russia. Bonn lifts capital import controls BONN (Reuter) The Bonn government lifted most of the country's capital import controls Wednesday and said other countries in the Ban cheques MELBOURNE (AP) Banks are running out of cash because of a ban by members of the Australian Bank Officers Association on processing business cheques. The employees want a 25-per- cent wage increase. An estimated 70 per cent of banks in Victoria state were closed today because of an extreme shortage of cash. Half of Victoria's work force normally paid on Thursday will not get their money, employers said. joint European currency float are planning to do the same. The controls were imposed in 1971 and 1972 to ward off un- wanted inflows of foreign cur- rency when the mark was strong and the dollar weak. A government statement said the changed foreign exchange market situation since the dollar's recent- strong recovery was taken into account in the decision to remove the controls. A government spokesman told a news conference later the decision was taken after consultation- with West Germany's partners in the Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Sweden, Norway and Denmark. These consultations revealed other float countries were planning similar measures, he said. He did not give further details. The exports are expected to rise to at least 1.2 billion bushels equal to 70 per cent of the 1973 U.S. harvest by the end of the season on June 30. According to figures soon to be published by USDA, China emerged as the largest single recipient of U.S. wheat during July-December. Further, soaring wheat prices in the last year pushed the six-month export value of wheat to a record 12.62 billion, more than triple the July- December, 1972, value of million. Super exports have helped drive up costs of farm commodities and, in the case of wheat, have nearly drained reserves. By July 1, the department says, the reserve will be 178 million bushels, the lowest since 1947. During the six months period, China was shipped 95 million bushels of wheat worth 1272.4 million at U.S. ports, compared with 20.8 million bushels valued at million in July-December 1972. Russia, which triggered the wheat export surge 18 months ago with orders which eventually exceeded 400 million bushels for the 1972-73 season, was shipped 72.2 million bushels valued at million in July- December. A year earlier shipments were 97.6 million bushels worth million. JD atcttron 1003 4th Avenue S., Uthbridge Telephone 328-4426 JLjtt tct ervices YOU DECIDE WHERE YOU WANT YOUR DOLLARS TO GO.
