Pork market loss said temporary EDMONTON (CP) Any loss of Alberta pork markets in Japan is believed to be tempor- ary, Glen Purnell, the prov- ince's deputy agriculture min- ister, said today. Mr. Pumell said Alberta can expect more serious competi- tion in future from rival ex- porting countries such as Aus- tralia and Mexico. He commented on statements Tuesday by livestock economist James Dawson, who said hog prices had dropped during the last week because of the sud- den withdrawal of Japan from the American and Canadian hog market. Japan is expected fairly soon to open new import quotas for red meat, including pork, said Mr. Purnell.

The United States has been sending its envoys far and wide to hammer home the message of rising U.S. energy imports and to ivarn of the dangers of vicious international com- petition for available supplies. Japan has called for a confer- ence of all oil-consuming coun- tries to discuss a common ap- proach and the ECM has re- agitated its ideas of developing a united European front which would then co-operate with the Americans and Japanese. Britain, relatively isolated from the problem by the prom- ise of extensive oil and gas finds in the North Sea, recently added its voice to those advo- cating an international confer- ence. So far, all this has amounted to little more than pious state- ments of intent. No concrete steps have been taken. Japan and the European countries have begun quietly pursuing individual efforts lo ensure their own oil supply sources independently of all oth- ers. The original impetus for "consumer co-operation" came in 1971 when the producing countries of the Middle East and North Africa confronted the giant Western oil companies. Many observers believe the producers won a major strate- gic victory, gaining enhanced participation rights and forcing dramatic price increases at Tehran and Tripoli. Since then, the balance of power in the energy battle has been shifting towards the Middle East. The West is placed at a dis- advantage by the forecasts ol oil needs for the next 10 years. Western Europe is expected to increase its oil imports to about 20 million barrels a day by 1980 from the current level of 13 mil- lion. Japan may double ils imports by the end of this decade to nearly 11 million barrels daily and experts predict the U.S will be importing about 50 per cent of all ils oil requirements by the early 13SOs compared with 15 per cent last 5'car Gigantic Equipment Auction Sale SATURDAY, APRIL 7th A.M.
