He urged B.C. secondary in- dustry to face the challenge of competing in the international marketplace.

LARGEST MINE North America's largest tan- talum mine is at Lac du Bonnet, Man. Analysts see strong base beneath narrow trading By PETER U5ICHNITZ Canadian Press Staff Writer On the surface, it was a rather lack-lustre week on ma- jor Canadian stock markets with most issues trading within a narrow range. However, analysts said sev- eral factors indicate the market has a strong base for further advances. While trading was active, vol- ume was not as heavy as in re- cent weeks and they said many investors had withdrawn to the sidelines until the current mon- etary crisis' was resolved. A 14-counlry conference" in Paris announced Friday it had reached full, agreement on the crisis in negotiations. A decision earlier in the week by major trading nations to float their currencies jointly ad versely affected ths price of gold.

The Toronto industrial index, considered a prime barometer of market trends, climbed 1.25 points during the week, closing at 2Z5.09. Trading was moderately ac- tive on the Toronto market with 12.72 million shares changing hands during the week, down from 13.76 a week earlier. Base metal issues, whicli climbed to record levels last week, plunged sharply lower following, a major announce' ment in the United States.

Hardest hit Cana- lian companies were those with exports to tlie U.S. The Toronto base metal index ell 1.32 points following the an- nouncement. A moderate recov- ery Friday erased part of the decline and the index ended the veek at 102.32, down .76 points. Trading was moderate on the New York exchange with prices closing lower for the second consecutive week. The Dow Jones industrial average of 30 key blue-chip issues lost 9.18 xnnls during the week, closing at 903.05. On the Montreal and Cana- dian exchanges, the composite index rose 1.87 points to 231.87. Combined volume on the two markets was G.21 million shares, compared with 7.52 mil- lion the previous week.
