NEW YORK (AP) Stock market prices were broadly lower in slow trading today, in- dicating what analysts said was the indecision of the investor caused by President Nixon's ill- ness and economic uncer- tainties.

John Diefenbaker (PC- Prince Albert) said there is a stream of rumors flowing through the West that the gov- ernment plans to put feed grains on the open market He asked assurance from Mr. Lang, the minister responsible for the Canadian wheat board, that feed grain will not be taken from the board's jurisdiction. Mr. Lang said the rumors did not come from government; they came from press reports that did not fairly or adequately reflect government policy. Earlier Prime Minister Trudeau told Alf Cleave that the matter will be discussed at the western economic confer- ence in Calgary later this month.

Mr. Lang told Mr. Diefenba- ker that everyone attaches a good deal of importance to the role of the wheat'board in an orderly marketing policy. He was confident that a mar- keting policy can be established that is fair to all regions, in- cluding the producing regions. The minister's answer cWy adds to the uncertainty, said Mr. Diefenbaker. Mr. Lang said western farm- ers realize the government has taken action to improve tbe grain situation "like we've never seen it before, and that action is going to continue."

L CROSS STUDIO 31J-0111 S 328-0723 Canadian businessmen slow in tapping Japanese market OTTAWA (CP) Canadian businessmen have been dis- appointingly slow in exploiting a booming Japanese market generated by a dramatic shift in trade policy, say economists and trade officials here. And, until Canadian business attitudes catch up with the times, they say, this country's limited role will continue to be mainly as a supplier of raw ma- terials for the voracious Japa- nese industrial' machine. A sign of that appetite is the fact that world-wide demand for raw materials in recent months, driving up prices owes more to Japanese buyers than any other market. Such sales may sustain Cana- dian export growth without tap- ping a lucrative demand for manufactured creat- ing the jobs that manufacturing makes, sources here say. Canada for years has wanted to change its trading pattern with Japan, to move away from strictly raw materials to more Miscellaneous quotations f Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal (Supplied by Donerty.

The subject no doubt will be one of those discussed at the seventh meeting of the Canada- Japan Ministerial Committee meetings in Tokyo Sept. 4-5. Ex- ternal Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp will head tte Canadian group. The stakes are high. The Japanese economic potential is awesome. Economists here and in Japan forecast a soaring gross na- tional product total value placed on all the goods and about trillion by 1985. By then, Japan is expected to be importing commodities and goods valued at perhaps bil- lion compared with billion in 1970. Japanese sources here say they expect Canada's slice of that export market to rise by 800 per cent or more by then, a sales volume of perhaps billion compared with 1972 ex- ports to Japan totalling about minion. These trade officials say, In contrast to current Canadian export patterns and counter to the gloomier views of their Ca- nadian counterparts, that manu- factured goods will account for half that total or about bil- lion. Logic for their view exists. INVESTMENT UP Japanese investment is in- creasing steadily in Canada to more than million, in the raw material sector but also in the kind of manufacturing dominated in the past by tbe U.S. Brimming Japanese for- eign exchange coffers have con- tributed to a rapidly-expanding total foreign investment ex- ceeding billion. Pressure by the U.S., Eu- ropean Common Market and other trading partners has forced lowering of traditional Japanese import and in- vestment barriers. Revaluation of international currencies since 1971 has also forced up the value of the Japa- nese yen, making Canadian and other exports there cheaper and therefore more competitive. Industrial machine Japanese investment in Canada, largely confined in the 1960s to raw ma- terials, is growing rapidly and spreading to second- ary industry, hotels, recre- ational facilities and real estate. Photo shows arrival of the Uni- verse Japan, built in Japan in 1969, as it arrives at Gulf Oil refinery at Point Tupper, N.S., with a cargo of crude oil. Shoe firm plans big expansion WINNIPEG (CP) Greb Industries Limited, a Winni- peg shoe manufacturing firm, today announced a million modernization and expansion program. At a joint press conference with Manitoba Industry Minis- ter Leonard Evans, the com- pany's executive vice presi dent Charles E. Greb said the expansion will result in crea- tion of 60 to 75 new jobs dur- ing the first six months of operation, and about 90 new jobs within a year- Mr. Evans said the expan- sion jpuugiciui involves no money from either the provin- cial or federal government, and that his department's in- Jvement was strictly as a consultant.
