Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 20, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 32 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, March 20, 1974 One of biggest in North America Newfoundland site for oil refinery Roof collapses One person was slightly injured when a 400-square-foot section of roof collapsed at a Woolco department store in Edmonton. Damage from the mishap, apparently caused by the weight of snow, was estimated at between and Weather, wheat board grain slowdown culprits REGINA (CP) The weather and the Canadian Wheat Board are to blame for western transportation problems, not the railways, says the president of the Palliser Wheat Growers association. An "inflexible, bureaucratic attitude" and an unusually severe winter are the real culprits, Walter Nelson said in an interview. He said the wheat board has continued to order trains into Chocolate bar price increase TORONTO (CP) William Neilson Ltd. announced Monday it is raising the wholesale price of its chocolate bars, which will increase the price for con- sumers to about the 15-cent level. The company said the in- crease for Neilson brand bars reflects rising raw material costs The price of sugar, which has almost tripled in the last year, is the major reason for the increased cost, a company official said It has risen to the current level of 34 cents a pound from 12 cents a pound a year ago. Cocoa beans now cost 79 cents a increase of 47 cents over last year's price, he said, adding that the costs of milk powder and labor also have increased. Chicken market in Japan EDMONTON (CP) The first taste by the Japanese of Canadian chicken apparently has tickled their palate and they've asked for more. The Alberta Export Agency reports that a sample shipment of 18.5 tons of locally-grown and processed broilers has resulted in an additional order for pounds over the next six months. The supplier is Pinecrest, a Calgary-based broiler firm. The sale to the Japanese importer, Suehiro Broiler Co., grew out of a continuing trade dialogue between the export agency and Japanese business interests. Dennis McGrath. director of export operations in the Pacific rim said it was toe first time Japan had received broilers from a Canadian source. Pop plant to open Friday Pic-a-pop, at 222 12 St. B N., LeUibridge's second bulk pop dealer, will officially open its doors Friday. The plant funded through the Alberta Opportunities Company and the federal department of regional economic expansion has been operating for two months Ken Horlburt will be on hand at I pm. to cot the ribbon. inaccessible areas and because of its insistence on "equity at any cost" in grain deliveries, railways have spent more time moving snow than moving grain. Palliser has seen nothing but promises and excuses from Ottawa and Winnipeg since last August, he said. Mr. Nelson said it is high time Justice Minister Otto Lang "stopped fiddling and started calling the tune in wheat board operations." The railways have had to keep 25 diesel engines, four snow plows and at least 200 men busy in an effort to clear snow from branch lines, he said. Entire trains have been trapped on branch lines where they should never have ventured in the first place but had to go because of wheat board orders, Mr Nelson charged. The wheat board has sent trains into impossible areas despite pleas from the railways that they be allowed to haul from elevators and terminals on mam lines and leave inaccessible elevators until spring, he said. Eventually, he said, the board found itself in trouble and began blaming producers for not delivering. Mr. Nelson said his only criticism of the railways is that they haven't told their side of the story. NEW YORK (CP) Plans for construction of a second oil one of Gold price up; dollar weakens LONDON (AP) The United States dollar lost ground in early dealings on the London market today while the price of gold advanced an ounce on the overnight price. In the first hour of trading the pound sterling advanced to compared with Tues- day's closing price of One dealer suggested that Watergate developments in the United States were responsible for the weakening of the dollar. He cited Tuesday's call by Senator James Buckley for the res- ignation of President Nixon. There also were worries, the dealer said, about the effect of high oil prices on the United States balance of trade. At the morning gold fixing in London, the price of gold was set at an ounce, and later a dealer reported that it was trading at This compared with the Tuesday night prices of The dealer could give no specific reason for the jump in the price of the metal. "There are just a lot of he said. Another London source said that the price of oil and its ef- fect on world inflation must carry some responsibility, with gold a hedge against inflation. capac- ity at Come-By- Chance, Nfld., were announced today by Shaheen Natural Resources Company Inc. The new plant will be built one-half mile south of the 000-barrel-a-day refinery built by Newfoundland Refining Co., Ltd., a Shaheen subsidiary, last year and which went into production in December. The refinery will be one of the biggest in North America, believed to be exceeded only by a refinery in Louisiana. However, the Louisiana refinery was expanded to that capacity after construction. John Shaheen, president of Shaheen Natural Resources, described Come-By-Chance as a natural location for a refinery because it is one of the best deepwater harbors in the world, capable of handling supertankers of up to deadweight tons. As an example of the magni- tude of the projected barrel daily capacity, he said it will have storage capacity for more than 25 million barrels of oil with tanks as large as barrels each. Building will start this year on the new plant and the re- finery will be running at capacity within 36 months of the start of construction. The announcement said a contract for the design, engineering and construction of the refinery has been signed the Shaheen Company and Technip of Paris, the French engineer- ing contractor.
