General Motors Corp. now Is the one TJ.S. auto-maker in the convertible business. Chrysler and American Mo- tors quit earlier. In 1965, U.S. automakers produced convertibles, an all-time high for the indus- try. William P. Benton, Ford vice president and Lincoln- Mercury general manager, says air conditioning probab- ly is the greatest single fac- tor in the demise of the con- vertible. "Air conditioning provides comfort that convertibles lack; controlled fresh air in- side the car, with dust, noise and wind shut he said. Still it wasn't without a bit of nostalgia that Ford rolled its last convertible off the line; a 1973 Mercury Cougar which immediately was de- livered to Floyd Moore, a Chi- cago automobile collector. ered the major indicator of market trend, rose .27 to 206.00, base metals .18 to 100.77 and western oils .88 to 211.86.

Businessmen jittery over Canadian dollar NEW market YORK prices (AP) drifted Stock lower again today in listless trading which some analysts felt might indicate positive factors. However, they also said that the battering of the dollar and the uncertainties about the economy in general continue to depress prices. Among Canadian issues on the New York exchange, Mcrntyre was up to Canadian Javelin to Seagrams to and Cana- dian Pacific to Hudson Bay was down V4 to Dome Mines to and loco Vi to By BUD JORGENSEN Canadian Press Staff Writer The Canadian dollar has been a model of stability while other currencies drift from crisis to crisis, but the situation still is making many Canadian busi- nessmen jittery and consumers have reason to worry. On the surface things look good for Canada and manufac- turers here are looking at a sit- uation where potential com- petitive advantage in some markets is improving every day. The value of the floating Ca- nadian dollar has been within a fraction of a cent of the United States dollar for months. Mean- while the value of the American dollar has been smking and dur- few days it has record low each tog the last closed at a day. As the value of the U.S. dollar declines against the German mark, the Japanese yen, the French franc and other cur- rencies, two things U.S. goods abroad and become imports happen: cheaper become LARGE ISLAND Vancouver Island has an area of square miles. MOLSON INDUSTRIES LIMITED more expensive in the U.S.. With the Canadian dollar ap- pearing to go along for tba ride, businessmen here in theory have this situation: The U.S. market is stable, exporters are in a better competitive position when selling America, and being prices. outside North importers are squeezed by higher The stable U.S. market is up- sst, however, because a price freeze is in effect and exports of certain some feed grains-iave been rigidly controlled. Keith Dixon, general manager of the Canadian Importers As- sociation, said consumers will notice the results in food prices. He said the freeze on prices has increased demand for foodstuffs in the major supplier of the Canadian ex- p o r t markets squeezed. are being The other side of the declin- ing dollar value is a rise in the values of European and Japa- nese currencies and this means iiigher prices for imports to Canada. Mr. Dixon said prices of Ger- man goods landed in Canada lave gone up 25 per cent since Fan. 1 and Japanese items by 18 per cent. Cattlemen irked at show change Mr. Dixon contends that the US. dollar is undevalued and with it the Canadian dollar. which has been floating since mid-1970. Money market sources say the Bank of cen- tral bank, which implements federal fiscal policy has not been intervening in money markets in recent months to control the value of the dollar. They describe the dollar value as "stable" and Bank of Canada activity in money markets as "modest." CREATES ADVANTAGE About 70 per cent of Canadian foreign trade is with the U.S. Japan and the European coun- tries account for most of the re- mainder and it is here that there is the exchange rate ad- vantage for Canadian exporters. The export controls adopted jy the U.S., which also cover scrap steel, represent a concern about protecting domestic mar- lets. Protectionism is a worri- some thought for businessmen o countries like Canada, which rely heavily on foreign trade.
