Theodorakis has composed the music for the film "Zorba, the Greek" and other works. Grain Prices WINNIPEG (CP) Guided by a strong Chicago soybean market, oilseeds opened on a pattern of higher prices and were rising steadily at mid- session on tfce Winnipeg Grain Exchange today. The heavy trading session was dominated by the U.S. gov- ernment report released Friday showing a crop estimate much lower than had been expected. July flax was up 3% cents over the Friday close and No- vember rapeseed was up 514 cents. Oats, barley and rye were having a light trade with, prices steady.

Representatives of mechanl, cal unions and The Citizen's management carried arguments before the Onatrio Labor Rela- tions Board iji Toronto, where pressmen, engravers and mail- ers have lodged a charge that they have been locked out ille- gally. The American Newspaper Guild, representing staff in the editorial, circulation and busi- ness departments, appeared at the same time to be getting set to return to work by Wednes- day. FIRST MEMOIRS READY PARIS French president de Gaulle has com- pleted the first volume of on the 11 years he governed France, his publisher said here. Plon of Paris said the first book of a planned tri- logy, entitled Memoires d'Espoir (Memoirs of will appear this fall under tire title Le Ren- ouveau (The It will cover de Gaulle's years from Bond Financing Down TORONTO (CP) Govern- ment, provincial and corporate bond financing for the first six months of this year, according to figures supplied by Wood Gundy Securities Ltd., totalled about down slightly from for the same period last year. Government of Canada issues totalled about up sharply from in 1969. A major item in the gov- ernment issues was the refund issue Intro- duced in mid-June. New provin- cial issues totalled about dcnvn slightly from last year. Total corporate financing was down sharply during the first half of the year. New issues to- talled only about as compared with about in 1969. "Despite the 'decrease in fi- Bowel Movement Theories Rubbish WASHINGTON (AP) Two experts in abdominal ailments say it is not necessary for ever- yone to have a bowel movement every day in order to be healthy. "The once-a-day-without-fail is just an old and untrue cliche that well meaning mothers passed on to their said Dr. Irving Brick, acting chief of the gas- troenterology department at Georgetown University Hospi- tal and school of medicine. Another Georgetown special- ist, Dr. Martin Durkin, put it this way: "It's perfectly normal to 'go' three times a day, and it's also perfectly normal to 'go' once every three upon the individual. "Unfortunately, there is very frequently a feeling among peo- the elderly and some spinster they absolutely must have a bowel movement once a day. And this leads them to take strong laxa- tives. "The danger is that repeated use of strong laxatives makes the bowel insensitive, to normal that one can arrive at the point where it's impossi- ble to have a bowel movement New Delivery Quotas Set WINNIPEG (CP) New deli- very quotas for a number of Prairie centres were announced Saturday by the Canadian Wheat Board. A delivery quota of three bushels per specified acre is effective immediately at one Manitoba point, 16 Saskatche- wan points and one Alberta point. A four-bushel quota is effec- tive immediately at seven points in Manitoba, 17 in Sas- katchewan and four in Alberta. The federal government has announced an objective of es- tablishing a four-bushel quota across the Prairies by July 31. without taking such a potent laxative." Durkin said one hopeful trend is the availability, and wider use, of so-called "bulk" laxa- ives, as distinguished "from stimulants, irritants and cathar- tics." Price Hikes Studied By Commission OTTAWA (CP) The federal prices and incomes commission announced here it is checking into recent or intended price in- creases for a range of services and products from air fares and cement to bread and margarine. The commission, established a year ago to encourage re- straint in setting prices and pay rates, is reviewing the new prices to see if they accord with the policy guide that increases this year be clearly less than advances in costs. Air Canada and CP Air, which announced plans earlier this week to raise domestic air fares by an average of about five per cent Aug. 5, cited higher pay rates and costs of borrowing money as the reasons. Their new rate schedules must be cleared by the Canadian trans- port commission. Four major cement producers raised prices by about five per cent May 1 and June 1. The in- creases apply to sales in On- tario and the Maritime prov- inces. The commission also will check into increases since the beginning of this year in the wholesale prices of edible oils, including margarine, shortening and cooking oil. Manufacturers, citing higher costs for raw 'materials, have raised margarine prices by about five per cent. Retailers have passed on the increases to shoppers. nancing there has been an In- creased activity on the market, compared with the same time last said one analyst. "Money has been tighter than in the previous year, but the money which has been available has been put primarily into short- and mid-term invest- ment." Institutions have been In- volved to a greater extent than last year said Burns Brothers and Denton Ltd. Canadian insti- tutions have provided good buy- ing support for better quality new issues. MARKET STRONGER The market, which started tho year weak, gained strength in February and March. It weak- ened again in April but has come back in May and June. The market has been particu- larly strong in the last six weeks. Most analysts said the unsta- ble stock market condition was a major factor for the bond market's recent good perform- ance. The outlook of poor corporate earnings are turning individual investors to the relative security of the bond market. Bond yields now are generally higher than the average yields of stocks said Burns Brothers. Many bond traders said there is evidence of an easing in in- terest rates. Two successive rate reductions, one in May the other in June, by the Bank of Canada brought its rate down to 7 per cent. Major Canadian banks reduced their prime rate rate at which they lend money to their best customers 8 per cent earlier this year. 'Tight money is still in effect, but interest rates should start to said one analyst. A TransCanada Pipeline Ltd. issue introduced in late May, which carried a 10 per cent cou- pon, was the highest yield issue of tiiis year. YIELD DROPS The average yield on three- and six-month treasury bills dropped below 6 per cent in June for the first time since late 1968. Day-to-day money, which was available at about 1% per cent at the beginning of the year, is now available at about per cent. "Over the next six months wa expect a moderation in interest rates. We expect a reasonably heavy new issue calender, par- ticularly from the public sector, as corporations build up their liquid assets and fund some of their short-term said an analyst at Midland-Osier Securi- ties Ltd.
