(AP) Hay is as precious as gold In the western third of Montana. With a poor bay crop in the process of being cut and pas- tures grazed bare, ranchers in many areas are selling cattle or shipping them to counties where the grass is greener. To compound the problem created by lack of rain, Can- ada has stopped the export of alfalfa products and wheat farmers will have little straw, which along with a high pro- tern supplement can be used for winter rations for cattle. Tba extremely dry year has driven the price of hay as high as to a ton in western Montana, northern Idaho and eastern Washington. Most Montana ranchers who have hay, however, are keeping the precious commodity. The cost of hay a year ago in Montana averaged a ton. The Canadian department of agriculture imposed a ban on the export of alfalfa products July 9. However, it is unclear here whether the ban includes al- falfa hay in addition to cubed alfalfa and alfalfa meal. At present, movement of al- falfa bay across the border has been stopped at least hi Gla- cier County and at Sandpoint, Idaho. An Idaho dairyman said fr> was turned back by Canadian customs officials this week on his way south from Creston, B.C., with a load of hay. Federal and provincial gov- ernment spokesmen have al- ready stated the Creston hay bait was not justified under erms of Canadian alfalfa trade regulations.

G. B. Mellon, deputy min- ister of mines and minerals, said the replies do not show a pattern of favoring one option over the ulLej. Tbe provincial government has given the oil companies untfl July 31 to make tbeir choice known in a move aimed at raising an additional million anmiaHy from petrole- um reserves. Companies hold- ing leases have the choice of accepting a royalty rate of 21 psr cent of the value of production or a tax on reserves of 16 mills in addition to the old royally rate of 16 2-3 per cent Scotty Cameron, executive secretary of the Independent Petroleum Association of Can- ada, has said about 300 of Hie prwince's 400 oil companies win opt for the increased roy- alty. falfa hay bad also been Import- ed from Canada, Larry Hoff- man, county agricultural ex- tension agent, said many ranchers are moving their cat tie to market or shipping mem to points outside the county where green pastures are available. Minister rapped in C of C letter MONTREAL (CP) The Ca- nadian Chamber of Commerce bas replied by letter to a charge from Trade Minister Alastair Gfflespie that the chamber is "out of touch" with pdblic opinion on the need for control of foreign investment in Canada. In a letter to Mr. Gfflespie, Orland Tropea, chairman of the chamber executive, says the minister's remarks are "hardly likely to produce better communication and standing between people, across Canada represented by such or- ganizations and the federal gov- ernment.' Addressing a convention In Quebec City last month, Mr. Gfflespie said the chamber spokesman had to be "kidding when they like the business 4MMmnunity docs not consider the present level of foreign ownership a problem re- quiring government action to prevent further increases." The letter to Mr. Gillespfe says the chamber believes in legislation that would give the government power to "take ac- tion in order to prevent or limit foreign investments that would work against Canadian inter- Tne chamber says a survey showed its members ready to accept some controls in key areas of the economy but that "most businessmen consider that further foreign capital is needed for the growth of the Canadian economy." But the chamber believes the bill now before the Commons goes too far and would have "inimical" effects on the coun- try's future economic prospects and standard of living, the let ter says.

The UAW has not specified wage edmands for its nearly members at General Motors, Ford and Chrysler. But Leonard Woodcock insisted that the United States economic pro- gram announced Wednesday is flexible enough on wages and fringe benefits to accommodate the union's contract goals. Woodcock noted that Henry Ford H has predicted that any wage settlement probably win exceed the guide- line being cuutiiiued under Phase 4. Woodcock told reporters the prospect of continued rising prices under Phase 4 underlines the need for improving oost-of- livmg allowance benefits, a ma- jor UAW demand this year. With many uncertainties about national economic pol- icies cleared away, the union resumed outlining its demands upon the three auto-makers. On Wednesday, the union called for provisions allowing the reopening of negotiations when a contract provision is set aside by the government or otber outside Mervertion. have on Federal pol- icy."
