Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, June 19, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Canada's inflation rate below average OTTAWA (CP) The nation's inflation rate during April was substantially below rates in other countries, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD; reports. The consumer price index rise of seven-tenths of one per cent during April compared with an average of 1.1 per cent among 24 OECD members. May figures for Canada show the 1.7- per-cent gain in the price index during that month was the highest since the Korean War The OECD report is about a month behind Candian reporting because of the time lag in collecting information from 24 countries In the 12 months to April, the nation's price index increase of 9 9 per cent compared with an OECD average of 12 4 per cent The OECD report said the slower rates of price increases in Canada and the United States reflected reduced food costs However, during May there was a three-per-cent gain in the Canadian food index and this increase accounted for about half the increase in the all- items index. The April rate in the U.S. was six- tenths of one per cent and for the year to April the rate was 10.2 per cent. Among OECD members. Germany had the best price performance in the 12 months to April with a gain of only 7.2 per cent.

In Japan, the April increase was 2.7 per cent and for the 12 months to April 24.9 per cent. Indirect tax increases were factors in the increase in the U.K. and in Japan controlled prices were allowed to rise Canada was in a group of eight countries with price rates from April to April of less than 10 per cent.

Blood methods outdated OTTAWA (CP) methods for handling the thou- sands of pints of blood collected annually in Canada are 15 to 20 years behind Euro- pean and American methods, says Dr. Roger Perrault of Toronto, national director of the Red Cross blood transfu- sion service. While methods for obtaining blood voluntarily from donors are efficient, the domestic system has "very little to offer scientifically." Dr. Perreault said this week at a N-noise 4to die down' WASHINGTON (CP) In- dian Ambassador Trilocki Nath Kaul says he is confident that all "the noise" in Canada concerning the nuclear explo- sion in India will die down "in due course after the elec- tions." Answering questions after a National Press Club speech Tuesday, the ambassador said India was a little surprised by the sharp reaction in Canada when the successful explosion was announced. "But this is understan- he said. "They (the Canadians) have an election on their hands and during election campaigns sharp opinions are expressed by various parties. meeting of the Canadian Association of Pathologists. "Foreign specialists in blood transfusion have dif- ficulty finding a good laboratory to visit when they come to Canada." Moreover, Canada's trans- fusion centres are profes- sionally understaffed, said Dr. Perrault. As a result, limited use had been made of inter- national advances in biochemistry, immunity and automation in blood transfu- sion service laboratories. Suitable blood for a patient is determined by outdated techniques to identify blood groups, phenotypes or he'riditary characteristics and antigens, proteins in the blood with disease characteristics.
