g THI IFTHBRIDG! HWALD------Thuriday, July J3, 1770 Canada Does Better Than U.S. Sulphur In Braking Consumer Price Rise Parley On Tap OTTAWA (CP) Canada ap- pears to be performing better than the United States in slow- ing the rise in consumer prices and in maintaining industrial production during North Amer- ica's agonizing shift away from excessive inflation. But latest statistics show Can- ada has developed higher unem- ployment, its consumers are going more deeply into retailer debt, and business buyers seem less optimistic about the future than their U.S. counterparts. Because of the dependence of much of Canada's economic health on conditions in the United States, authorities in this country can do little more than moderate the rub-off effects on Canada of boom and slump cy cles in the U.S. economy. Latest figures released by the Dominion Bureau of Statistics here, and by government agen cics in Washington including the U .S. commerce department give this picture of the two countries: Canadian con- sumer price index rose two- tenths of one per cent in June, while the U.S. counterpart index rose four-tenths of one per cent, The year-to-year rate of con- sumer price increase in Canada began to slow down earlier than it did in the United States. index of industrial production deciinec eight-tenths1 of one per cent in Expand Letlibriclge, Red Deer Town Planners Advised EDMONTON (CP) The "tremendous growth" of Edmon- ton and Calgary is one of the major problems facing munici- pal planning in Alberta, Fred Colborne, m u n i c i pal affairs minister, said here. Mr. Colborne was speaking QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC 324 5th St. S. Ph. 328-7684 Above Capitol Furniture EDDY DIETRICH, C.D.M. at the annual conference of the Town Planning Institute of Canada. At the present- rate of growth, there will be 10 Cal- garys in 100 years, or else the one city will reach a popula- tion of and extend 13 miles toward Banff, said M. M. Rogers, Calgary director of planning. Dennis Cole, Red Deer city ccommissioner, suggested that smaller cities like Lethbridge and Red Deer be "deliberately expanded" instead of Calgary and Edmonton.

Favors Local Contractors EDMONTON (CP) Albert Ludwig, public works minister has denied Saskatchewan gov- ernment statements that Alber- ta favors its own contractors in public works jobs. Hs said when an out-of-prov- ince contractor bids lower than Alberta firms, public interesl demands that the government accept the lower bid. The Alberta government only last week awarded a major1 contract for a public works project to a Saskatchewan con- tractor. He was commenting on a statement by Premier Ross Thatcher that Alberta and Manitoba governments may be giving local contractors prefer- ence. Mr1. Thatcher said that un- less all three provinces live up to an agreement they made three or four years ago to ac- cept low bidders "we will have to give it up, too." The premier has asked that the matter be put on the agen- da for the July 20 Prairie Econ- omic Council meeting in Ed- monton. ELECTED CHAIRMAN LONDON (CP) J. C.

The TTC said the water bump- ers, vinyl bags filled with, water and attached to laminated joards mounted on regular 'ront bumper brackets, were in- stalled early last year on 31 Mses on an experimental basis.

Patrick, Alberta mines minis- ter, has called a meeting of sul- phur producers for Monday to discuss sagging prices and over- production in the industry. Prices have slumped drasti- cally from highs of more than about three years ago to lows of less than this March, Deputy Minister H. H. Somerville said Wednesday. Alberta's sales in the first quarter of this year rose 22 per cent, -but the over-all prices dropped 58 per cent. Mr. Somerville said no spe- cific topics have been put for- ward for the agenda. Alberta's sulphur, a byprod- uct of natural gas, accounted for the bulk of Canada's tons' produced in 3 969. Mr. Somerville said nearly tons of sulphur were produced in March, of which 72.743 tons were sold to the Uni- ted States, in other part of Canada, in A1 b e r and the remaining "o shore" or outside the continer U.S. Senator Russel B.
