Net income for the first half of 1970 was or 73 cents a Class. A common share. For the same period last year income was 75 cents a Class A share. "Sales of refined products and natural gas, and production of crude oil and natural gas liquids were higher than last the company said in a news release. "But the benefits of these in- creases were more than offset by lower sulphur revenues, in- creased exploration expendi- tures and additional debt charges." A decrease to exploration ex- penses and higher sales vol- umes are forecast for the sec- ond half of the year. But the company expects the benefits to be offset by "weakness in sul- phur prices, increased income taxes and continuing inflation- ary pressures on costs which are not being reflected in prod- uct prices."

Stocks Jump On Three Days By ART JOHNSON Cintdin Presi Staff Writer Canadian markets con- tinued to show general up- trend this week with advances posted on three of the five trad- ing days. Moderate price advances In most sectors, however, failed to spur investors' interest which has been at low ebb for several weeks.
