Boredom cause of social ills HAMILTON (CP} Labor Minister John Munro said Sat- urday boredom on assembly lines may cause social ills such as alocholism, drug abuse, ma- rital breakdown and even men- tal illness. He IHd a meeting of the Ca- nadian Institute of Manage- ment that he is vitally concern- ed "with the whole area involv- ed in tedium, boredom and al- most the hypnosis which is in- volved in today's mass-repro- duction line." He said employers must do more experimentation with ways to alleviate boredom and they must give workers more important roles in decision-mak- ing. "They must have a voice in the decisions which are being made which directly affect he said. "Many large firms now are coming to the realization that human beings can be trusted and relied upon to act in the ca- pacity of decision-makers.'1 Mr. Munro said 'workers should be able to decide the hours they work. "They day of the time-clock may soon be gone. Employees may not have to punch in every morning of their lives. Employ- ees may be able to adjust the hours at which they commence work." 1 09 Falcon 74) f and M Trust 7.00 Genstar B o H-irnp A Home B 14 75 Hud Bey Co 5 40 Hud Bay Oil 3.75 Hud Bay A Pfd 3 05 Hugh Russell 6 25 Husky Oil 7.00 Husky B Pfd .20 Husky D War 46.50 Husky E War 4QO Hys of Canada 10.25 Inter Prov Pipe 30.75 Inter Prov Steel 8 00 Kaiser Res .29 Loblaw C Pfd 9 25 Magnasonics 27.75 Pacific Pete 8.60 P W Air 7 re) Pe-Ben Oilfield Rainier Inc 1 02 P.oyal Trust 6 80 St Maurice Cap 14 871'j Sand.vell 1300 Teledyne 12.50 West Cdn 1 70 Wcstfield Min .70 Weston A Pfd 61 Whi'e Yukon PIPE LINE 3n co Gss A 16 12'i Alta Pfd 12 50 Alta Nat Gas .43 Inland Nat Gas 6 to N and C Gas 1.00 N and C B Pfd 5 8712 Pacific Trans 550 Gaz Metro MISCELLANEOUS Trans Pioe Tr Can A Pfd 1300 Tr Can B Pfd 21.87VJ Tr can War Ashland BP Canada Brenda Can South Cdn Ex GaGS Cdn Homestd Cdn Ind Gas Oil dn Long Is Cdn Super Charter Chieftan Dome Dynasty Fort Relianct GrGanlsle Gt Plains Gt Cdn Oil S Lochiel Lyttn Mm Noble North Cdn Oil Numac Pancdn Pete Pan Ocean Petrel Pinnacle Placf Ponder Ranopr Scurry Rain Seibens Spooner Total Ulster West Pete W.

Gold weakened. Trading was quiet, and deal- ers said markets appeared to be awaiting developments. Some dealers feel testimony damaging to President Nixon this week from former White House counsel John Dean could drag the dollar down further in Europe. The dollar has been depressed in recent weeks by fears thai the Watergate scandal will limit Nixon's ability to resolve in- flation and other economic problems. Other dealers, however, sug- gested the dollar had been over- sold in its long decline since February. The U.S. currency has floated down 12 per cent against the German mark, 10 per cent against the Swiss franc, eight per cent against the French franc and five per cent against the British since February. According t o Bus view, the dollar is already at bargain lev- els and should begin to attract buyers. GOLD DOWN FURTHER Gold dronped back further to- day, indicating there was less pressure on the dollar for the time being. The metal dropped j to an ounce in London and Zurich, the two major centres, i down in London and in j Zurich from late Friday. I The price of gold had soared j as high as S130 an ounce when the dollar was under heavy sell- ing pressure. In Frankfurt, where the dol- lar closed Friday at a record low of 2.5500 German marks, the U.S. currency dropped to another new low at the outset today, 2.5462 marks. Friday's plunge in Germany had beerj attributed to selling in New York and to hedging against weekend luicertaitities. Dealers said they were mysti- fied by the drop at the outset today. Trie dollar quickly recovered, however, rising above Friday's close to 2.5525 marks. The dollar was up fractionally in Paris at 4.22 commercial French francs, and in Zurich at 3.0440 Swiss francs. In London, the pound sterling gained a small fraction on the dollar, rising to By RICHARD ANCO Cuudiu Preti Staff Writer Farm marketing boards pre- set the producer, but is the wusewife's pocketbook being pinched in the process? Th3 question is being raised some Ontario egg dis- tributors and wholesalers who suggest egg prices are being kept artificially high in a "cap- tive market" and perpetuating inefficient farm operations. The egg producers don't see it that way. Surrounded on all sides by rising costs, they say egg prices are Mowing the same trends as other food com- modities. Egg marketing boards exist hi all provinces, functioning un- der a national board. They have legislated authority to control supply and set prices. What this means is that the old cut-throat system of supply and demand, in which some egg producers could barely eke out a living, has given way to a highly regulated marketing plan. Surplus eggs are siphoned from the market so that over- supply is not allowed to drive the price down. DISREGARD PUBLIC There is "complete indiffer- ence to the says Brian Devereux, secretary-treasurer of a large Toronto-area egg wholesale company. He says surplus eggs have at times been dumped on the U.S. market at cut-rate prices to maintain higher Ontario prices. Since the marketing board stepped into tiie picture a year ago the minimum price paid to Ontario egg producers has more than doubled to 55 cents a dozen grade A large. By the time the eggs go through processor, dis- tributor, wholesaler and retailsr another 15 to 20 cents can be added. Brian Ellsworth, general manager of the Ontario egg and fowl producers marketing board with a quota of 181 million dozen eggs a year, says sharp price increase simply re- flects higher costs down on farm. Skyrocketing feed costs, for example, account for 40 per cent of a producer's expenses. Last week the U.S. govern' ment raised the likelihood of curtailed foreign sales of soy- beans, source of protein meal in high demand as poultry and livestock feed. The effect could be still higher prices in Canada. Mr. Ellsworth says the con- trol system now in force guar- antees producers sufficient In- come to meet expenses and mcke a small profit. Ontario's producers share a provin- cial quota that is 38 per cent of a national supply target of 475 million dozen eggs annually.

LONDON (CP) The wily Scots have a bit of dcn't put your money into scotch whisky. Not as an in- vestment, that is. The Scotch Whisky Associ- ation says it is increasingly alarmed over complaints from gullible investors lured into the whisky market by glossy brochures offering the promise of great profits. The pitch is that although the investor must pay brokers and storage fees, he stands to make a killing when his young grain or malt whisky, bought cheap, is richly mature and ready for use. Usually, he doesn't. And the reasons is that the whisky mar- ket doesn't operate this way. A spokesman for the industry says most complaints come from the United States where the "brokers" have concen- trated their campaign. The in- dustry is concerned that such bad publicity will backfire on scotch whisky sales as a whole, with disappointed investors an- tagonized into boycotting scotch. REVENUE HIGH j The export of scotch brought Britain almost million million) last year and about half of that came from the U.S. alone. Ths whisky futures problem reached such proportions that the U.S. Security and Exchange Commission restricted the trad- ing rights of three British com- panies. They and several U.S. firms were placed on the SEC's restricted list after complaints from investors who were not able to re-sell their wisky hold- ings in Scotland at the quoted prices. Some advertisements gave an example in which young whisky bought at a gallon in 1957 sold four years later at four times the price but investiga- tors said this was an isolated example and did not. mirror the true situation. In practise, most of the big whisky firms finance their own needs planning far in advance. They are legitimate brokers in the business but blenders deal with them only on rare occa- sions when a sudden shift in supplies leaves them short of a particular type of raw whisky. of vestors to finance its stock maturing whisky. Although "whisky futures" are available to investors in Britain, the brochures are mainly distributed in the U.S. because people abroad are less likely or able to make independ- ent inquiries into the business. Livestock losses to be heavy EDMONTON (CP) Live- stock losses to predators in Al- berta are expected to be ex- tremely heavy next year, Dala Alsager, supervisor of animal pest control for the Alberta ag- riculture department, said Sat. urday. His warning follows reports of heavy losses to coyotes in southern Alberta this spring. Many cattlemen have sought as- sistance from the government in controlling coyotes. "K this coming winter Is harsh, coyotes could turn to do- mestic livestock." siad Mr. Al- sager. "It could be the most serious situation we've had in years." He said major complaints have come from sheep breed- ers in the Cardston area, 40 miles southwest of Lethbridge, where up to 30 lambs have been killed in a single flock. Coyotes usually kill domestic animals only when no other food supply is available, Mr. Al- sager said, but rodents normal- ly vital to coyote diet, are in short supply. Coyotes are moving closer to settled areas and have beiun breeding with dogs, said Mr. Alsager. A pack oof 30 to 40 have been reported threatening thor- oughbred horses near Calgary, he added. Red Cross may get chance to inspect prison camps SAIGON (CP) There's an outside chance the Canadian Red Cross Society will finally receive the invitation to inspect civilian prison camps in South Vietnam they have been waiting for since February. Whether the Red Cross will accept such an invitation is an- other matter. A subcommittee of the two- party Joint Military Commis- sion (JMC) reached agreement on extending the invitation to the Canadian and Polish Red Crosses last week.
