Calgary More money needed by wage earner By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The United States wage ear- ner is going to have to bring home some extra bacon if he wants to keep coffee and eggs on his breakfast table, a mar- ketbasket survey by The Associ- ated Press sows. The AP checked the prices of 15 food and non-food products in 13 cities March 1 and rechecked the items at the beginning of each succeeding month. ____ The total was up in 10 cities and down in three. Coffee, up in 11 cities, and eggs, up in 10 cities, led the list of higher-priced items. Increases in egg prices varied sharply, ranging from two per cent in New York City to al- most 20 per cent in Boston. The careful shopper still could find a few bargains. But- ter and pork chops declined in more than half the cities checked. All-beef frankfurters rose in 10 cities from March 1 to June 1. Almost all the in- creases came in the first two months, however; and prices leveled off after May 1, despite higher wholesale prices and short supplies of livestock at market.

Future of Concorde worry LONDON (AP) There is concern here that the Paris air show crash of Russia's super- sonic Tupolev TU-144 airliner might affect the future of its Anglo-French rival, Concorde. _ Norman Tebbit, Conservative MP and former airline pilot, said today that even if the safety of the Concorde was not questioned, the Tupolev disaster could de- lay the entry of the Western aircraft into commercial serv- ice. "If the Russians have their own supersonic aircraft in serv- ice, they will be happy to do a deal to "let us operate our super- ccr.ic aircraft over Tebbit said. "If theirs is delayed as a re- sult of the crash beyond the date Concorde is ready to go into service, they may not be so helpful." MOSCOW SHOCKED The initial response in Mos- cow was stunned silence. For more than five hours So- viet news media did not men- tion what had happened. Then the news was reported in a three-sentence report by Tass, the official news agency. Both airliners were expected to begin commercial flights around 1975 but aviation experts Grain Prices Winnipeg grain WINNIPEG (CP) Oilseeds made good avances, while feed grains weere up slightly in mod- erate trade at mid-session to- day on the Winnipeg Commod- ity Exchange.

Nelson Mercer of Calgary was elected Saturday as president of the Alberta Conference of the United Church of Canada for 1973-74. He defeated Rev. Edward Oldring of Red Deer and Rev. Michael Zuk of Spirit River in ballctmg by delegates at the annual meeting of the provin- cial conference. A resolution was passed Sun- day recommending that a five- member ccmmittee be appoint- ed by the executive of the con- ference to investigate a dispute between Mr. Zuk and his par- ishioners in Spirit River. Mr. Zuk resigned his post re- cently. DIRECTOR OF NURSING For a active 34 bed general hospital, TOO miles from Edmonton on one of the main highways north.

Please state qualifica- tions, experience, references and salary expected when applying to: ADMINISTRATOR WHITECOURT GENERAL HOSPITAL BOX 1080 WHITECOURT, ALBERTA in London said the Russian ver- sion, similar in design to Con- corde, could well be delayed if a technical fault caused the Sunday crash. The Daily Mail said the Rus- sian accident "need not cause panic about Concorde" but added: "Reports that one of the Tupolev's wings appeared to have been torn away imme- diately before the accident are bound to raise the question that this may have been weakened by its headlong dashes through the stratosphere on previous trials." __ PLANES SIMILAR Both the Russian and Anglo- French versions share a delta- wing configuration, capability of flying twice the speed of sound, and approximately the same payload and range. British Aviation Minister Mi- chael Heseltine said after the Tupolev crash that Concorde development will continue on schedule. "I do not think it would be fair to make any comparison on safety. Concorde will be the most tested airplane in the his- tory of civil aviation by a long way." British newspapers gave wide coverage to the Tupolev's crash. Most took the line that pilot error was probably the cause, suggesting that the TU- 144's test pilot was trying to outdo Concorde, which starred at the air show. Sixteen production Concordes are being built, to go into serv- ice first with Air France and the British Overseas Airways Corp.
