Plans bill to protect farmers OTTAWA (CP) Con- servative House leader Gerald Baldwin says he will introduce in the Commons this week a private member's bill to protect farmers from bankruptcy pro- ceedings. Under the bill, farmers faced with foreclosure proceedings and eviction could arrange for orderly payment of debt, in some cases at reduced interest rates. Mr. Baldwin, the member for Peace River, said weather con- ditions have affected adversely crop returns on farms in this area of northern Alberta. As a result." many farmers have had to foreclose. Mr. Baldwin introduced a similar bill four years ago but it died on the Commons order paper. The bill would revive the old Farmer Creditor's arrangement Act which lapsed several years ago.

MARKETS CLOSED NEW YORK (AP) All stock exchanges and livestock markets in the U.S. are closed today to observe the Indepen- dence Day holiday. NYSE firms record big losses NEW YORK (AP) The Jtfew York Stock Exchange said Monday that 60 per cent of its member firms showed losses in May and the losses totalled million. Chairman James Needham said, however, that the May losses were million less than April. Aggregate losses of member firms for the first five months of 1973 were million, com- pared to a profit of million for the same period in 1972, he said. While there was no comment from the exchange, industry sources said the number of bro- kerage houses on the ex- change's early warning list of financially-troubled firms had dropped "somewhat" from the 68 the exchange reported last month. Petroleum corporation ruled out CALGARY (CP) The fed- eral government probably will not form a national petroleum corporation as long as foreign and domestic private interests are active in exploration, says Energy Minister Donald Mac- donald. Mr. Macdonald said in an in- terview companies are "en- thusiastic" in their search for petroleum in the Arctic and in the off shore areas along the east coast. But if this enthusi- asm diminishes, there may have to be a switch to public funds for development to con- tinue. But the energy minister pre- dicted a continued involvement by the private sector. Mr. Macdonald. in Calgary to get reaction to the govern- ment's energy analysis paper, said no attempts would be made to establish a national corporation until some form of energy policy has been adopt- ed.

DISTRICT PERSONNEL OFFICE SUITE 200 140 1st S.Wtf CAIGARY. ALBERTA T 28 OA5 For further information Coll 261-3800 reported by the department to have occurred earlier this year. "The result was what China reportedly purchased at least tons about 1.8 million bushels of U.S. soybeans val- ued at million to mil- lion." the report says. "The first shipment of tons was made in late April, with the balance to be shipped over the next three to four months." Soybean exports soared dra matically in recent months, prompting the Nixon adminis- tration to clamp an embargo on further shipments until an allo- cation system could be worked out for the remainder of the current crop season which will end when the 1973 harvest be- gins after Sep. 1. Last calendar year, about 358 million worth of U.S. agricul- tural products were sold to China, mostly grain and soy- bean oil. In return, China sold about million worth of products to the U.S., mostly hog bristles, raw silk and spices. No gasoline shortage in Montana GREAT FALLS no gasoline shortage in Mon- J. J.

There is a widespread belief and a widespread misunder- standing that Japan must ex- port to live. This is only half true. The critical fact, is that Japan must import to live. Except for a few foodstuffs and raw materials, Japan1 eith- er does not have any or does not have enough of the essen- tial things she needs to feed her 104 million people, to supply raw materials to her vast in- dustrial complex or, indeed, to survive. The Nixon administration's announcement last week that export controls would be placed on soybeans, a staple of the Japanese diet, sent shock waves through Japan and most likely will intensify Japaenese efforts to find guaranteed sources of supply. An American official lere said that "this doesn't do our image as an assured sup- plier any good." Among the new measures be- ing considered that would guarantee supplies, according x> Japanese officials in the jowerful ministry of intema- :ional trade and industry, will be an acceleration of efforts to diversify the sources of these supplies; a massive increase in foreign investment in natural resources, and increased stock- piling of raw materials, food and fuel. Officials in the ministry of international trade and industry and in the foreign ministry, moreover, say that the govern- ment will seek political guar- antees from other nations and from the United States particularly assuring Japan of continued supplies. The new trade policy is still JB the formative stages. As out- lined in Tokyo, it is intended to 30 wen beyond Japanese efforts x> overcome political frictions, jedaBy with the United States, by reducing Japan's trade surpluses of recent years. The new policy does not mean that Japan's exports will faB.
