Marketing opportunities for in many parts of the world, said Dr. Glen Purnell, deputy minister of agriculture and chairman of the board of the Food rationing WASHINGTON (AP) Earl Bute, United States secretary of agriculture, has predicted short- ages of meat and poultry in the United States, but other eco- nomic officials say the possi- bility of food rationing is "ex- tremely Butz told the Senate banking committee Monday that Presi- dent Nixon needs standby au- thority to reduce agriculture ex- ports to solve the shortage problem. He said the squeeze between high feed prices and the freeze on prices of food at the con- sumer level is hurting poultry raisers, forcing hog producers to sell off breeding stock, and causing cattlemen to keep beef off the market. Through the new program (he agency will share in ex- penses for trade missions, par- ticipation at international fairs and exhibitions, livestock se- men sales, technical training programs in developing coun- tries, and other related pro- jects. "We do not plan to compete with market development assis- tance offered by the federal de- partment of Industry, Trade and Commerce said Dr. Pur- neU. Applicants first must apply for assistance from ITC if such assistance is available. The Al- berta exports agency will share the remainder of total costs In- volved. For programs not quali- fying for ITC support, the agency will share costs with the applicant." In addition to costs of mar- ket promotion and develop- ment, provision will be made to develop long term financing programs associated with live- stock and semen sales to for- eign countries. Applications will be review- ed by the livestock and semen commodity team, one of four teams established to take a leading role in the department of agriculture's overall market- ing emphasis. VANCOUVER (CP) When Columbia Cellulose changes its name to Canadian Cellulose June 29 and the British Colum- bia government becomes its major shareholder, will the us- ual company abbreviation COLCEL become CANCEL? Ron Gross, company pres- ident designate, winces at the thought and says: "that's another thing we have to do, settle on a name." The 39 year old executive says he is prepared for a busy time during the next few years, trying to build a sold, profit- able company out of an ailing forest complex. He said that unlike Ocean Falls, which is a crown cor- poration, the govern- ment is simply a shareholder in Canadian Cellulose through a holding company to be called B.C. Cellulose. The holding company will have 79 per cent of Canadian Cellulose shares, with the rest divided among individ- uals and institutions, mostly in Canada. GUARANTEE DEBT The B.C. government's only other involvement is a guaran- tee of the company's longterm debt. "I can see there are prob- lems because of the govern- ment's public Mr. Gross said. "But there are problems that c6me up from time to time with any major shareholder we may be for- tunate the major shareholder is right here in B.C. and not else- where." He said the company will, in effect, be on its own after its board of directors is chosen June 29. "The government has made it clear that it wants professional Mr. Gross said. "One thing that has impressed me is the way it has been tak- ing sound professional advice before making its decisions." He said the government indi- cated a hope for wider public ownership in the company, pro- NATIONAL COURTESY CARD' LEASING The motor venlcle acscnDsd on Back of tnli idcntifi- Cltlon Ctra tut Been from t Ford Authorized Lcjflng System of Canidl Lenor (named It would Be appreciated if every courtesy Including prompt and quality service ana any fleet discounts on parti extended to tne operator or tms venicie.

He said the first step will be to draw up new financial state- ments for the company, based on its new position. "By fall, we will have a pro- gram sorted out and priorities set he said. "The first is providing fiscal integrity for the employees and sharehold- ers." FACE PROBLEMS Two problems he said the company must tackle are pollu- tion control for the 500-ton-per- day sulphite mill at Prince Ru- pert and the overdue expansion of the company's Castlegar op- eration. He said the major problem with the sulphite mill is the cost of completing pollution re- quirements for its toxic efflu- ent, as high as million. The Castlegar operation is due for expansion as a matter of natural growth, he said. In the 1960s when it could have been expanded all available money was tied up in the mon- ey-losing Prince Rupert facil- ity. Mr. Gross said improved earnings were "about 10 years away" but he added the com- pany's northern operation goals are consistent with the general economic development in the area. "Not many company's have this unique he said.
