First on the list for a visit from Lockheed's top brass was Air Canada, which has ordered 10 Lockheed L-1011 TriStars which can fly up to 350 passengers at 600 miles an hour. Terms have not been disclosed for the tentative agreement announced Tuesday, after two weeks of private talks between Lockheed and the British government on behalf of the bankrupt Rolls empire. The plan could jack up costs and alter deliveries of the 178 TriStars on order. But a switch to another power plant at this point would require costly redesign of the plane's tail assembly where the third engine is located. The other two are wing-mounted in pods. SEEK ASSURANCES The British government, which picked up the Rolls pieces in an effort to maintain its balance of trade, sought assurances that Lockheed would go to full production of all TriStars on order. Lockheed, on the other hand, demanded guarantees that, the Rolls RB-211 engines would be ready when needed and at a price making the TriStar competitive with the McDonnell Douglas DC-10, also a three-engine air bus. Later this week Lockheed will call on other TriStar customers and on officials of more than f0 banks with interests in Lockheed and the airlines. The other airlines involved include Eastern, which has ordered 50 TriStars; Trans World Airlines, 44; Delta, 24; Pacific Southwest, five; and Air Jamaica.

Oil price increase forecast TORONTO (CP) - The chairman of the board of Imperial Oil Ltd. says the tremendous cost required to meet the growing need for oil will eventually lead to i n c r e a s e d product prices. W. 6. Twaitssays in the company's annual report to shareholders that world demand for oil is rising sharply. He estimated consumption by 1980 in the free world of 72 million barrels a day, up from 40 million barrels in 1970. He said the oil industry in Canada had reached the stage where. technological innovation no longer will be able to offset rising costs. The industry now has reached the stage where its prices will not only have to be much more responsibe to cost increases, but will have to achieve a level that will provide the incentive for the massive investment required to fill Canada's growing needs for energy.". As previously reported, Imperial had 1970 earnings of $105 million or 82 cents a share, up from $94 million or 73 cents share during 1969. Sharp drop in earnings VANCOUVER (CP) - Cominco Ltd. reported Tuesday a slight increase in 1970 sales and total revenue but a sharp drop in net earnings. Consolidated sales hit an all-time high of more than $264 million, the company said in its annual report^ up about six per cent over 1969. Total reve-nue of almost $270 million was up about five per cent. Net earnings, however, were off approximately 20 per cent, at $24.3 million. Per-share earnings in 1970 were $1.45, down from $1.81 in 1969. DANISH ORIGIN There are more than 40,000 people of Danish origin in Canada. Business Spotlight Mushroom output not mushrooming By JIM NEAVES OTTAWA (CP) - Canadians are eating nearly 50 per cent more mushrooms than they did five years ago, but domestic production is not keeping pace with the demand. J. R. Burns, acting chief of the market outlook section of the federal agriculture department, says imports of processed mushrooms, particularly from Taiwan and China, have increased much faster than Canadian production. He believes the Canadian market, because of a renewed interest in gourmet cooking and an increasing population, will continue to: expand and that Canada's mushroom producers can adjust to fill the needs. The production of mushrooms increased 23.6 per cent to 22.6 million pounds in 1969 compared with 18.3 million pounds in 1964. But imports of fresh mushrooms totalled 2.2 million pounds in 1969-70-mainly from the United States, and imports of canned mushrooms reached 19.3 million pounds. Mr. Burns emphasizes all domestic production is consumed in Canada and there have been no exports-either fresh or canned. IMPROVED HARVESTING The area of mushrooms, beds decreased to 3.8 million square feet in 1968 from 4.1 million square feet in 1964 and although the total area has decreased Wilderness meet The: regular meeting of the Alberta Wilderness Association Lethbridge branch will be held Wednesday at 8 p.m. in the Gas Company Auditorium on Stafford Drive. The main item of business will be drafting and approval of a brief concerning AWA views on the Canadian national parks master plan now under consideration by the federal government. Members and non - members are welcome to attend. slightly h arvesting has Increased because producers are taking off more than two crops a year. Increased yields have also increased productivity and efficiency in the industry. The average reach a high of 2.5 pounds for each square foot in 1967, compared with 1.8 pounds in 1964, but dropped slightly to 2.2 pounds in 1969. Mushrooms are produced in all areas of Canada with Ontario being the largest producer followed by Quebec and British Columbia. "The Prairies and the Marl-times also grow mushrooms but on a much smaller scale." Mr. Burns says growing mushrooms is a highly specialized business calling for a mixture of art and scientific knowledge. Tute trial cases may last 5 years LOS ANGELES (AP) - The chief defence lawyer In the Sharon Tate murder trial says appeals of the convictions and death sentiences of Charles Man-son and his three women followers may last five years arid will be taken to the United States Supreme Court if necessary. Paul Fitzgerald said in an interview Tuesday the defence will launch its appeal April 19 before Superior Court Judge Charles Older, who presided over the 9%-month trial that ended Monday. Under California law Judge Older can reduce a sentence if he finds the jury's verdict unreasonable, but if the sentences had been less than death he would have no power to increase them.
