Once the ground rules for in- dustry are established in Brit- ish Columbia, he said, "they stick." Questions from investors, many from eastern1 Canada and some from Japan, dealt with unforeseen changes in the ground rules laid down for business. "We have not expropriated one company, we have not na- tionalized one company, and any business dealings we have been involved in occurred in the open the premier said. Mr. Barrett urged eastern in- vestors to make more direct contact with his government and to read Vancouver news- papers rather than eastern pa- pers for B.C.'s financial news. "Financial pages of both news- papers here have done a pretty fair job of he said. He listed a number of Euro- pean countries with Social Democratic governments and observed that many business- men in Canada "hear the word socialism and run.

Chrysler Corp. filed a similar request last May 29, and Ford is expected to join in the plea soon. The EPA has scheduled hear- ings to begin next Monday to consider whether a one-year ex- tension of the 1976 deadline is warranted. Cominco plans development of gold-ore body Y E L L 0 WKNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) Cominco Ltd. has an- nounced it plans to spend million to sink a mile deep shaft and build other facilities to more economically tap its gold producing ore body. The development promises to boost the area's gold mining industry an important eco- nomic base for the territorial capital that has been on shaky footing for the last few years. Giant Yellowknife Mines is faced with dwindling ore re- serves at its current urder- ground operation and Co- minco's con mine has been a marginal operation for years which was threatened with closure until the price of gold began to rise. The new Cominco shaft will cost about million with the rest of the money for hoists, waste handling, crushers and mill expansion. Work, scheduled to last VA. years and provide construction jobs, should not interfere with the current production of 500 tons of ore daily, Frederick Burnet, Cominco chief execu- tive said. EPA officials, however, have released new findings indicating that the 1976 nitrogen oxide standard may be too strict and they have also indicated they would ask Congress to ease it. They said they would not sub- mit any specific proposals to Congress until the EPA con- cludes its hearings and issues a decision, due by July 28, on the extension requests. The new EPA findings on ni- trogen oxide, however, greatly increase the odds the extension will be granted. EPA recently extended for one year two sets of 1975 stand- ards requiring 90-per-cent re- duction of auto emissions of carbon monoxide and hydrocar- bons, while setting tough in- terim standards. Under the Clean Air Act of 1970, a similar 90-per-cent re- duction was required for nitro- gen oxide emissions in 1976- model cars.

Calling for the U.S. uranium industry to invest billion be- tween now and 1990 in explor- ation and construction of new mines and mills, and an addi- tional billion between 1991 and 2000, the commission said in a special report: "A rapid expansion of the ex- ploration effort is necessary in the near future if demands are to be met." Saying nuclear power will be- come the dominant source of electricity for the United States by the 1990s, and will represent 60 per cent of the electrical gen- erating capacitv by 2000, the commission said present known domestic reserves of the pre- cious fuel, plus potential re- sources, fall far short of re- quirements. It ticked off these figures: 1. At best, the known and esti- mated reserves total 1.5 million tons, whereas a total of five million tons will be needed by 1990, including one million tons needed to be mined between now and then, plus an addi- tional four million tons deemed "desirable" as reserves. 2. By 2000, the atomic power plants expected to be in oper- ation will require about 2.4 mil- lion tons. stricted the grasshopper hatch and damage to new crop! re- mains minimal.

The south and central regions of Saskatchewan, however, were generally missed by rain and remain dry.

Manitoba: Heavy rains helped growing conditions, though some low lying areas are flooded in the eastern part of the province. Farmers have fin- ished seeding in most districts and crops appear promising. Light insect damage is reported and a below-average hay crop is expected because of the wet weather. Saskatchewan: P r o s p e cts point to a "better than average crop." Rain in the northeast has blocked seeding and has flooded some areas already sown. The southwest corner of the province remains dry. Alberta: Chances for a good crop improved considerably fol- lowing general rains June 14-17. Earlier, lack of surface mois- ture created uneven germina- tion patterns in late-seeded crops. Grasshoppers continue to pose problems and considerable insect damage is reported.

The woman, Norma Levy, was interviewed by Stern magazine at St, Tropez on the most chic stretch of the French Eiviera. She is stay- ing there with her husband Colin. The c a 11-girl scandal brought the resignation of two British Lam- bton, who was air force min- ister, and Lord Jellicoe, gov- ernment leader in the House of Lords. Mrs. Levy said she worked in an exclusive London call girl ring run and operated by a woman in her late 40s, who collected one-fourth to one- third of the payment for each engagement. She said clients of the ring included royalty, presidents, ambassadors, industrialists and bankers.

Total cash receipts during the four montbsln all provinces except Newfoundland rose to 831.1 million from. mil- lion in the same period in 1972. The estimates include cash receipts from sale of farm products, Canadian Wheat BoJird payments, cash advanc- es on stored grains in the west and supplementary payments to dairy producers.
