Weakness in Pork bellies was attributed to a higher storage figure and cash egg market weakness was a selling factor in futures At the close on the Board of Trade.

(GCOS) Ltd. to reduce its deficit, president Kenneth F. Heddon said today at the an- nual meeting of shareholders. At March 31, the company had an accumulated deficit of million. He said size of the reduction would depend heavily on the company's cost situation and reduction rate. The company now receives an average of a barrel for its output. Mr. Heddon said his op- timism for the company and development of the oil sands was tempered by "some harsh realities of costs and long lead "The oil sands are probably two decades away from being able to supply a substantial portion of Canada's hydrocarbon he said. "The present approved pro- jects, Syncrude and Shell, when completed and operating in the early '80s, plus GCOS, will likely meet no more than 10 to 15 per cent of Canada's oil demand at that time." Mr. Heddon said he is con- cerned about the political and economic environment in Can- ada and the growing number of attacks on corporations. "The oil industry is the ham in the federal-provincial sand- wich as these jurisdictions continue their battle for tax revenues. The result is double taxation which, in some cases, not only eliminates profit but creates losses." Reach agreement on second B.C. stock exchange VANCOUVER (CP) The Vancouver Stock exchange and the British Columbia Securities Commission an- nounced Wednesday that agreement has been reached on the creation of a second stock exchange in B.C. The new exchange, to be known as the Vancouver Curb Exchange, will open Aug. 1, the Vancouver Stock Ex- change said in a statement. The curb exchange will use the facilities of the Vancouver Stock Exchange, listing shares of junior companies which do not meet the listing requirements of the present exchange, the statement says. The statement says it is the intention of the Vancouver Stock Exchange and the Securities Commission to dis- band the over-the-counter market and the interim sec- tion of the present exchange. Both the B.C. Securities Commission and the Van- couver Stock Exchange are hopeful that the new exchange 'will provide an orderly and regulated market in the shares of junior B.C. com- panies, and will give a greater measure of shareholder protection in requiring full disclosure of both company af- fairs and market activity, says the statement. Alberta trade mission signs coal for ore pact BRASILIA (Reuter) A trade mission from Alberta has concluded an agreement with the Brazilian government to exchange coal for iron ore, a communique from the Brazilian for- eign ministry said Wednesday. Details of the contracts will be work- ed out shortly by means of direct contact between the Canadian coal-mining companies and Siderbras. the Bra- zilian government steel holding company. In principle, it was agreed that starting in 1975. Brazil will take 300.000 tons of coal, in- creasing annually to a total of between 1.2 to four million tons. In return. Brazil will ship one million tons of iron ore and pellets an- nually to Alberta. This may be doubled later if plans for expanding the Alberta steel industry materialize, the minis- ter said. It was also agreed to study the feasibility of joint ventures in which Brazilian companies would associate with Canadian coal mining companies in Alberta to increase production. Alberta firms would then participate in Brazilian iron ore and bauxite mining pro- jects. Industrial corp. profits increase Vrt 42 7M? .Ian 41 OTTAWA (CP) Industrial corporation profits after taxes climbed 45.7 per cent in the first quarter of 1974, substan- tially above totals recorded in the similar period for 1973. Statistics Canada reported Wednesday. Combined with a rise in sales of 24 per cent, the figures indicate a significant average increase in profit Seeding operations end near CALGARY (CPi Seeding of all grains is vir- tually complete in Alberta, the Alberta Wheat Pool said today Operations in eastern Alberta should conclude within two or three weeks while the threshing of last year's crop has also finished The moisture for topsoil and subsoil declined during the week Only in the Brooks- Lethbridge area and the Peace River district is the topsoil moisture at less than 80 per cent capacity, the Pool margins of the companies. The Statistics Canada figures show that actual es- timated after-tax profits were increase of million over the first three months of 1973. Mr. Heddon labelled as false recent allegations that GCOS would be profitable if its chief Oil not skim off profits. Sun Oil, in various ways, had enabled GCOS to keep operating, he said. Also untrue were allegations that the company had adopted accounting procedures geared only to report losses, he said. The company earlier reported a loss of for 1973. compared with a loss of for 1972. Farmers record profit OTTAWA (CP) Despite sharp rises in feed prices last year, farmers still profited from the sale of meat and poultry products, a food prices review board working paper says. The paper, prepared by board economists R. M. A. Lyons and David J. Clarke, says that feed and protein prices "increased dramatically" between November, 1972. and late 1973. U.S. corn sold in Montreal markets rose by 115 per cent to a ton: domestic barley prices rose 102 per cent to a ton: soymeal prices rose 234 per cent to a ton. But the authors add that "market prices of each com- modity increased at least enough to offset the higher feed prices and left producers in at least as profitable a posi- tion as they were when feed prices began to increase in late 1972." Beef prices, however, did begin to drop in the fall of 1973 and early 1974 because of a flood of U.S. imports, now curtailed through the use of tight government restrictions on imports of cattle treated with the growth hormone diethylstilbestrol The paper was prepared as background for a previously- released board policy state- ment on feed grain. In the earlier report, the board described feed barley, oats and poorer grades of vitally important components in consumer food prices.
