Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, June LETHBRIDGE Hunk economist forecast Strength of economy to continue MONTREAL (CP) A Bank of Montreal economist forecasts economic strength for the remainder of 1974 despite a continuing rising price spiral and a recoiling economy in the U.S. Canadian economic activity, strong in the first quarter of this year, should ease off in mid-year and rebound in the final quarter, said J. D. Parish, the bank's senior assistant economic adviser. Tiger, tiger Transatlantic air fare hike okayed FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (Reuter) The International Air Transport Association (IATA) approved transatlantic fare increases of between three and five per cent. The increases, approved unanimously by 40 international air carriers here, will take effect Aug. 11. An IATA spokesman said the increases are needed because of fuel price rises and were subject to approval by the governments involved. A five per cent increase was voted for fares on westbound flights, Europe to Canada, but eastbound flights from Canada would remain unchanged, the spokesman said. Fares on transatlantic flights between the United States and Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Indian subcontinent would be increased by five per cent, the spolesman said. Transatlantic fares to and from Mexico were to be increased by three per cent, he said A basketful of Bengal tiger cubs at the Vancouver Game Farm await shipment to a German zoo.

AD RATES RISE NEW YORK (AP) The New York Times has announc- ed it will increase its advertis- ing rates an average of four per cent in July. Advertising director Warren Wolfe said the new rates result from higher operating costs, including the increased price of newsprint. "Over-all, the real gain should be about five per cent, down substantially from last year's 6.8-per-cent increase, but a pretty good year none the he told members of the Textile Trade Association. Figures for the first five months of 1974 indicate that prices will rise by about 10 per cent this year, compared with 7.5 per cent last year, he said. However, he said many commodity prices appear to be sagging and should be coming under "somewhat better" control by the end of the year. LETHBRIDGE CONSTITUENCY REELECT g- THE WEST STRONG! "I hasten to add that no sharp break in prices is ex- pected, and that we have yet to feel at the retail level the full impact of last year's sharp increases in commodity, industrial and energy he said. Reviewing several economic sectors, Mr. Paris made the following projections: hectic pace of house- building activity will slow as the year proceeds, with signs that there may be less mort- gage money in coming months; growth of exports will probably fall off this summer. Export volume is not ex- pected to increase, however, and "now that commodity prices are weakening, Canada's balance in trade goods and services deteriorate." he said. d Consumer spending, senting about 60 per cent of tal economic activity, remain strong. In the financial sector, he'j said loan demand has or exceeded deposit growth each of the past six quarters..'; Specially Priced Buys Wait For You In The Paint Wallpaper Department Paints and Stains Trelspar paints, long noted tor their high quality, are now even easier to buy during this special sale.
