Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta July I. If 71 THI HTHMIDOt HMMD it Prices climb in week By PETER LEICHN1TZ Canadian Press Staff Writer Prices on major Canadian stock markets posted fractional advances in most sectors in light trading this week. Analysts attribute the rise to several actors. Many feel investors have had ample time to fully study the federal gov- ernment's recent tax change proposals and are making cor- responding adjustments in their portfolios. The continued rise in con- sumer credit, that is the amount of outstanding consumer loans, continues to have a bullish ef- fect on the market. Many inves- tors interpret a rise In con- sumer loans as a general sign of the strengthening economy. New pulp mill plans scrapped EDMONTON (CP) A pro- posed million pulp mill at Whitecourt, 100 miles northwest of here, will not be built "owing to market conditions." MacCJillan Bloedel Ltd. had until midnight Wednesday night to present its plans for the mill or forfeit its hold on acres of forest in the Whitecourt area. The plans, were not an- nounced and Peter Downs of Vancouver, vice-president of communications for MacMillan Bloedel, said the company is unable to proceed. The company has had the mill under study for five years and spent more than mil- lion on the project. Death of the project, how- ever, did not come as a shock to Whitecourt. "We've been expecting said Bill Frizzell, a member of the town's boar'1 lion. "The liar :g was on the wall a year ugo." MacMillan Bloedel spent the 6 million buying out the in- jests of a company that had lease on the area and then doing studies on the area. The company and the Al- rta government opened ncgo- rations in 1967 for the lease rich would supply timber for le mill. Since then the agree- ent has been renewed several Tines, but Wednesday night as the deadline for a firm immitment. Construction permits up CALGARY (CP) Permits for construction valued at million have been issued by the city during the first six months of the year. The total is well ahead of the Six-months figure of million in the record year of 1968 when structures valued at mil lion are approved. D u r i-n g June, 938 permits were issued for buildings ex pected to cost million. Projects include single fam ily dwellings worth mi lion, apartments worth mi lion with the remainder for stores, office space and publi buildings. H. H. Smith Ltd.

Trading continued light throughout the week. Total vol- ume at Toronto was 7.86 million shares, down from 8.83 million last week. However, Canadian markets were closed Dominion Day, July 1. At the Montreal and Canadian exchanges, the composite index climbed 1.43 points, closing at 179.72. Combined volume at the two exchanges was 4.90 million shares, compared to 5.21 million last week. Western oil issues posted strong advances, reflecting a growing amount of encouraging news. Dome Pete announced It Is planning to split its shares on a three-for-one basis, subject to shareholder approval. Also Worldwide Energy an- nounced a large gas discovery in south-eastern Alberta. The Toronto market's western oil index gained 6.76 points, closing at 220.85, a high for the year. NEW YORK HIGHER Prices at New York moved modsrately higher during what observers termed a "technical rally." Many analysts say the market is presently in a "corrective phase" and as a re- sult many investors are on the sidelines, waiting for an upward trend to develop. On the week, the Dow Jones industrial average of 30 key blue-chip stocks rose 14.22 points, closing at 890.91. Volume at New York was 62.8 million shares, down from 66.30 million last week. Monday's volume of 9.81 mil- lion shares was the lightest vol- ume on the New York Stock Ex- change since Nov. A lack of buying on interna- tional money markets, coupled with a drop in gold prices forced gold issues fractionally lower during the week. The gold index, at Toronto, lost 2.87 points, closing at 169.22. With little news to inspire speculators in base metal is- sues, prices drifted fractionally lower. Observers said a recent strike against the major copper pro- ducers in the U.S. had been largely discounted in advance on. Canadian markets. The only highlight of the week was an announcement by New Imperial Mines that it was sus- pending its copper mining and milling operation near White- horse, Yukon. The company said low copper prices on inter- national markets now make the operation uneconomical. On the week, the Toronto market's base metal index rose .74 points to 93.37.

Charter flight licensing needs another hard look MONTREAL (CP) Govern- ments must take a fresh look at their licensing practices for non-scheduled charter flights, Honor student CHENEY, Wash. A Vaux- hall High School graduate now attending Eastern Washington State College, Christine L. Brown, has been named to the EWSC spring quarter honor roll. The daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert 0.

BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) Syria warned Friday that it would seize and1 shut off the pipelines of the Western-owned Iraq Petroleum Co. The warning was broadcast by the state-controlled Damas- cus radio 24 hours after the Syr- ian government broke off nego- tiations with IPC on higher transit royalties. "The people and government of Syria possess the means and will to extract their rights from IPC. The company tows from past experience that we stop at no limit to get our rights in a broadcast said. This was a reminder of Syria's 1967 seizure of IPC pipe- ines and installations that caused a three-month shutdown. The pipelines move 75 million ons of Europe-bound oil a year rom oilfields in northern Iraq o Mediterranean terminals in Syria and Lebanon. The lines were reopened when PC agreed to raise Syria's an- nual transit royalties by 50 per cent to million from mil' ion. The Syrians now are demand ing a new increase based on an agreement last January _ be- :ween Syria and the American owned Trans-Arabian Pipeline Co., which gave Syria an 80- per-cent increase in royalties to million from million a DutcH coocena and has head- quarters in London.
