Oil stocks had been drifting lower for some time they rumors that the British government plans to nationalize at least part of the huge North Sea oil exploration has also been a moderating factor. Alberta crops progress EDMONTON The g Alberta agriculture department reports today field crops are continuing to make good progress as a result of recent rainfalls. Average wheat height ranges from 10-12 S inches in southern regions to 5-7 inches in S the Peace River S district. Moderate to heavy grasshopper infestions are evident in southern Alberta although jj extensive spraying has resulted in minimal crop losses. Red turnip beetles are present in S north central regions and many areas of the Peace River district. SWftiS Low-power generator invented LONDON British scientists have invented a new low-power generator which can operate for years without maintenance or refuelling. Potential uses include marine telecom- munication weather stations and undersea systems. But the Liberal election vic- tory also brought with it the possibility that the govern- ment will reintroduce measures in its defeated May budget that would slap heavy new taxes on the petroleum and mining industries and financial institutions. The Toronto Stock Ex- change's western oil index hit its lowest point since Aug. more than 2Vz per cent during the day. But other sectors of the except also were down. On the Montreal Stock Ex- the index of 65 indus- trial stocks dropped to a 1974 low. Losers at Toronto included such name stocks as Imperial Oil down Noranda Dome Petroleum Aqui- taine and Canadian Superior Some analysts had predicted before Monday's election that a majority win by either of the main parties could remove investor uncer- tainty and spark a market at least for the short term. Shrimp pound found OTTAWA A signifi- cant expansion in the shrimp fishery off the central coast area of British Columbia may follow recent discoveries by federal fisheries says the environment department. A fisheries vessel conducted trawl tests in late April that located about 150 square miles of productive shrimp grounds centred 30 miles southwest of Namu in Queen Charlotte Sound. Major concentrations of good quality averag- ing 120 to the were found on the sea bottom at between 90 and 110 fathoms. T. H. research scientist in charge of the said the current stock should permit a catch of about pounds a at current prices worth about to fishermen. New shape in headlights General Motors will introduce a new rec- tangular four lamp head- lighting system on their 1975 cars that has a reduced height compared with round lamps and inches on a 1974 The lower height allows more space on front of cars for bumpers which are larger because of impact standards. Space is also available for front turn signals and parking lamps plus the potential to increase the downward slope of the hood to give the driver a closer look at the road.

The relatively small May change compares with a 1.7- percent jump in the consumer price index during the same month. That was the month during which gasoline and fuel oil prices at both retail and wholesale levels went up sharply. Weights assigned various product groups in the wholesale index are based on a survey done during 1935-39. The weight assigned petro- leum products in the wholesale price index is 2.8 per cent. In the consumer price fuel oil for home heating and gasoline for vehicles accounts for 4.7 per cent of the all-times index. The weight for all petroleum products in the consumer price index would be larger because such items as petrochemical feedstocks are included in weights for a variety of items.

Paving job VANCOUVER The ministry of transport an- nounced Tuesday the main runway of the Vancouver International Airport will be closed from Thursday for a million paving and' lighting job expected to take He said in an interview a large segment of the business community would have preferred a Conservative but voted Liberal because of the controls issue. He said construction com- panies in Ontario were concerned about worker backlash if wages were adding chances for labor peace were better in a free economy. This concern was not as strong in B.C. where unions are extremely militant Mr. Farmer said. Election of the Liberals probably means the 11-per- cent tax will come off construction equipment as outlined in the federal budget which was rejected by the op- position parties and led to the federal he said.
