16-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, June 11, 1974 Third-level airline service suggested in ATA brief OTTAWA (CP) Operations of third-level air carriers stiould complement services now offered by the national and regional airlines. the Air Transport Association of Canada (ATAC) said Monday. The role of third-level carriers should be to operate flights into communities not already served by other airlines, transporting passengers to connect with existing routes, and to handle supplementary flights on routes of major airlines. They could also operate domestic and international charters. The association made the statements in a brief to the ministry of transport and the Canadian transport commission, which are conducting studies on the future of the 60 third-level carriers in Canada. The association suggested that routes which do not fit Public ownership of Gold favored WASHINGTON (AP) Treasury Secretary William Simon said today he hopes it will be possible for Americans to own gold before the end of the year. Simon told a House of Representatives bank- ing and currency subcommittee that he favors allowing Americans to own gold, which now is prohibited. President Nixon has authority from Congress to remove the ban at any time and Simon said he hopes this will be possible "before the end of the year un- less there are damaging developments." Simon appeared before the House subcommittee, whichs is considering U.S. contributions to the International Develop- ment Association which makes interest-free develop- ment loans to the world's poorest countries. The Senate already has approved an appropriation, but with a stipulation that Americans should be free to own gold, effective Sept. 1. The House sub- committee, which previously turned down the IDA bill, also is considering setting a gold-owning date as a condition for passage of the bill, sources said. Air Canada profits cut by fuel price increase OTTAWA (CP) Increased costs, largely due to rises in fuel prices, cut Air Canada's profits in 1973 but the company still had a net income of million, the airline's annual report says. In 1972. the Crown corpo- ration made a profit of S8.6 million. the type of operations the government has allocated to regional carriers should be reserved for the third-level, or local service, carriers. Some routes were unsuitable for regional carriers because of traffic volume, size of airports and type of aircraft in use. The association also suggested the transport ministry and the commission examine the proposed areas of co-operation among the national, regional and local service carriers in fields such as technical and ground servicing arrangements, reservations, advertising, and sales. Grain delay fault not on segment WINNIPEG (CP) CP Rail's top executive says current problems in grain shipments at Thunder Bay and Vancouver point up the unfairness of blaming any one segment for delays in the grain delivery system. Ian D. Sinclair, chairman and chief executive officer for CP Rail, told a news conference the difficulties in meeting export schedules demonstrate the highly- sensitive character of the delivery system and it is unfair to pick out any one segment for blame. Mr. Sinclair said labor problems at west coast terminal elevators have hampered Vancouver's ability to meet grain shjpments and s a shortage of ships at Thunder Bay is causing problems there. As a result of these delays, he said. CP Rail has railway cars backed up on the prairies. Mr. Sinclair was here to attend the company's board of directors meeting Monday.
