Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 9, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, June 9, 1971 THI LlTHIIIDOl HMAIO Sheep, wool commission set N.Y. influence affects market REGINA (CP) Formation of t Saskatchewan sheep and wool marketing commission has been announced by Agricul- ture Minister Jack Messer. Mr. Messer said in a news release the commission would have the power to promote sheep and wool products and investigate marketing alterna- tives available to the industry. He said the commission, un- der the chairmanship of Ken- neth R. Ferch of Kipling, will consult sheep producers in the province concerning marketing systems. Other members of the com- mission are Kenneth Crandel of Piapot, Gerald P. Payant of Assiniboia, Elvin W. Sothman of Elrose and Hugh D. Taylor of Saskatoon, all of them sheep producers. Bill Wilson of Saskatoon, past-president of the Sakatche- wan Sheep Breeders Associa- tion, said a committee he head- ed requested the commission to breathe new life into the in- dustry. U.S. anticipates record crop WASHINGTON (AP) -The 1973 United States winter wheat harvest, now under way in the southern Great Flams, is ex- pected to produce a record crop of bushels, the United States agriculture de- partment said Friday. The estimate, based on June 1 field conditions, is three per cent or 34 million bushels more than the crop reporting board forecast last month. It also would mean a winter wheat crop 11 per cent larger than in 1972. A bumper crop is needed this year to help meet a huge export demand which has reduced re- serves sharply and has caused wheat prices to soar to the highest levels in 25 years. The loviet Union is expected to have a larger wheat crop this year but probably not enough to meet all its needs and com- mitments officials said. The Soviet Union is expected to import further grain during the 1973-74 season but probably not as much as in 1972. Even so, the department is predicting that U.S. wheat ex- Egg prices EDMONTON (CP) Weekly egg and poultry report issued by the federal agriculture de- partment: Eggs to producers: A large A medium 51, A small 36; B 33, C 10, cracks 18.

In its mater wheat report Friday, the department put av- erage yields Oiis year at 35.2 bushels per acre, compared with 34.0 bushels per acre har- vested in 1972 and 35.4 hi 1971. Fanners are expected to have about 37.3 million acres of win- ter wheat for harvest this year, compared with 34.9 million in 1972. The administration, in an attempt to increase output, re- moved land-idling requirements for 1973 wheat program partici- pants. By SANDRA INGALSBE Canadian Press Staff Writer The performance of Canadian stock markets this week con- trasted sharply with last week's dismal showing. Golds retreated from previous highs but other sectors rallied strongly in mod- erate trading. Markets initially showed signs of following last week's trend, but a strong rebound Tuesday by industrials more than wiped out Monday's losses. Analysts say New York con- tinues to be a major influence on Canadian markets which nevertheless showed some re- sistance this week to the inter- mittent downward pressure from Wall Street. One factor in this stability is anticipation that tax cuts for manufacturing and processing industries will be passed by Parliament, analysts said. The New York market churned under a number of ad- verse influences this tergate, new signs of inflation and a spreading feeling that a recession in on the way. However, some observers said the mounting evidence of higher inflation has had the re- verse effect of creating new hope that the administration would act with some kind ol controls.

GOLD DEMAND DROPS Positive factors for the New York market were easing pres- sure on the dollar and the weakening in demand for gold. Bullion prices retreated from record highs and the Toronto market's gold index, which closed Monday near its all-time high, fell 21.32, on the week, to 282.38. Other sectors bounced back. At Toronto, the industrial index, considered a major indicator of market trends, rose 5.58 on the week to 211.66. The base metal index gain reflected some re- newed metal demand and closed the week at 96.83, up 3.51. Western oils rose 8.51 to 218.80. The unpredictable course of stock markets recently has brought a mixed reaction from analysts. While some feel that a minor economic readjustment is to be expected, others say a re- cession in definitely in the mak- ing. Canadian Business Service says: "Over the longer term the outlook is murky and after the expected market rally gets under way there could be a re- testing this fall of recent lows when the economic outlook for late 1973 and early 1974 be- comes clearer."

The board's decision may ef- fect current wage talks with the non-professional staff at the hospital since the limit is per cent greater than the six- per-cent ceiling placed on hos- pital grants increases by the provincial government. About 800 members of local 8 of the Canadian Union of Pub- lic Employees (CUPE) are cur- rently considering a board wage offer on a 27-month con- tract which stays be the six- per-cent guideline. Local CUPE president Mike MacGregor said the board was "not bargaining in good faith" by giving administrative sal- ary increases above the guide- line and then offering wages below the guideline to the non- professional staff. The board's offer to the union is similar to the one rejected by the CUPE local at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmon- ton where workers have set Saturday midnight for the be- ginning of a strike.
