They expect the dollar will rebound and stabilize on money-exchange markets when they reopen next week. If this is correct, the dollar and other currencies will be much less vulnerable to Speculative attack. It also will mean that a sizable economic adjustment has been made between the economies of the United Sates, Japan, Western Europe and Canada through the world monetary system. Some U.S. officials suggest that the dollar may now be un- dervalued a bit in relation to other currencies. Realistic currency alignment is something that has eluded the non - Communist world for years. The U.S. long had argued that the value of Japanese currency, the yen, was being kept arti-ficaliy low so that its imports into the U.S. would be cheaper. And it had said the Western European nations also maintained undervalued currencies in relation to the dollar. DOLLAR DROPS TWICE In the last two years, the value of the yen has been increased twice in relation to the dollar. The dollar has been devalued twice. And the values of several European currencies have been raised. Now, with the most serious monetary crisis yet, Japan, Britain and Canada have cut Aluminum related stocks good buy Hog prices EDMONTON (CP) - Average prices to 11 a.m. today provided by the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board.

Decalfa MISCELLANEOUS INDUSTRIES Ind PINCHER CREEK (Special) -At the recent annual meeting, Community Auction Sales Association showed another banner year for its 1,352 members. As a result of increased marketing of livestock and a steadily rising demand throughout the year, the association was instrumental in pouring in over five and a half million dollars in cash into the economy of southwestern A1 b e r ta and southeastern British Columbia. Of the 55 livestock auctions held during the 12 - month period,, the main centre of activity was the Pincher Station yards which accommodated 40 sa'es. 1 Cranbrook and Pakowki fa cllities handled 14 and one sales respectively. These three points marketed 23,419 head of livestock for s gross return of $5,560,432.56. Operating expenses amounted to $74,560, and the net profit for the year was $3,246.83, according to the auditor's re port. ASSETS Currently Community lists assets of $99,259.13, and members at the annual meeting endorsed improving Cranbrook and Pincher Yards to increase efficiency. In this respect, it was agreed that a small increase in selling charges to be implemented during the 1973 sel'ing season to offset the cost of expansion where deemed necessary by the directors. Since the new year, market demands for good quality livestock have resulted in a continuation of the spiralling price trend, and Community Auction Sales anticipates that its financial picture will be further enhanced in the months ahead.

Canadian Business Service says the industry is undergoing a change for the better because estimated world production fell short of consumption during 1972. More important, the industry's earnings seem to be returning to and may possibly exceed "their highs of 1970." Richardson Securities of Canada agrees, but adds that "cost pressures continue to eat up already slim industry margins." "From this standpoint, price increases are both badly needed and warranted." The effects of such price increases would be widely felt; the range of applications for aluminum has continued to grow. The increasing ability of aluminum to displace the use of other metals has been largely due to its light weight, high tensile strengh and corrosion-resistant properties. Canada, which produces about 11 per cent of the world's aluminum, exports London Life Announcement D. R. GLOVER, CLU The London Life Insurance Company announces the appoint ment of 0. R. Glover as regiona manager of its Calgary Elveden Lethbridge and Medicine Hat op erations. Mr. Glover, whose head quarters are in Calgary, has been a member of London Life marketing organization since 1961. He has gained extensive sales and management expert' ence with group and personal insurance In Edmonton, Toronto. St.. Catharines and at the company's head office In London Ontario. The London Life office In leth bridge, headed by manager E. G. Pepper, is located at 208 Financial Building, 504 4th Avenue South. about 82 per cent of its production. "The construction, packaging and transportation industries are making increasing use of aluminum," writes Canadian Business Service, "and the industry believes major expansion in use of the metal will occur in the au tomotive industry." It is even possible there will be shortages of sheet and plate aluminum late In 1973 "Sheet and plate production accounts for 45 per cent of total shipments to the United States so that if there are shortages there is a strong possibility of a price increase in the fabricated product.' Alcan Aluminium, the leading prime producer in the world, is recommended by both firms for investment. The stock closed Wednesday at 26Va. Canadian Business says the outlook for Alcan has "Improved considerably" and strong demand should improve the company's earnings even more. On the industry in general, Richardson says it believes "there is a good possibility that investors will start to pay higher multiples for aluminum company earnings." the values of their currencies loose from the dollar, floating them in the market so they can find their own values. In addition, six European nations agreed to float their currencies jointly, letting them rig* and fall together in relation to the dollar but keeping them lied to each other. On top of this, West Germany revalued its mark upward by three per cent. Currency changes are important because they help determine the price of traded goods between countries. The U.S. devaluation Feb. 12, for example, increased the price of imports into the country and made U.S. exports to other markets cheaper. Bu the Feb. 12 devaluation of 10 per cent failed to solve the problem. And another round of speculation forced the joint currency float by the six European nations, including France and West Germany, earlier in the week. These kinds of moves would permit the value of the dollar to drop even further, or perhaps rise, on the money markets. But U.S. officials expect that the six European nations will not let their currencies rise too much in relation to the dollar, fearing the U.S. would gain an even greaer trading edge. They could prop up the value of their currencies by buying up dollars. With most major countries floating their currencies now, U.S. officials belive that achieving monetary reform may be easier. The reason, they say, is that realistic realignment of currencies has finally been acorn-plished; thus monetary reform would not mean that any nation would suffer from a sizable economic adjustment when a new monetary system is shaped this year.
