Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 4, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wheat flow record set WINNIPEG (CP) G. N. Vogel chief commissioner of the Canadian wheat hoard said here record grain exports through west coast ports in April have made it possible to clear up tlie long line-up of waiting vessels at Vancouver. Preliminary figures show that west coast exports of all grains totalled 30.3 million bushels in April, up from the previous monthly record of 28.3 million bushels set last June. Mr. Vogel said only one ship was waiting in the Vancouver Harbor yesterday while six oth- ers were being loaded. In mid- Slarch when rail shipments had Ijeen disrupted by an extended period of severe weather, the list of grain vessels in Vancou- ver Harbor readied a peak of 28 ships. Since then rail ship- menls have been relatively free of disruptions. SPECIAL EFFORTS The commissioner said In a prepared statement the drama- tic shipping improvement is due largely to special efforts made by all segments of the grain in- dustry involved ir, the west coast movement and particular- ly the railways, terminal oper- ators, grain handlers and steve- dores. "As a result of the present situation, we are hopeful that we can catch up on the export programs that were deferred earlier in the year when the situation at the west coast be- came critical." The new record in gram clearances at the west coast was matched by an unprece- dented rate of rail unloads dur- ing April, averaging 837 cars a day on a five-day week. On April 17, a peak ot 957 cars was reached. Mr Vogel said that with the large number of vessel clear- ances In recent weeks, bunch- ing could again occur in the near future when the ships re- turn for further cargoes. How- ever, west coast terminals have shown they can handle such a situation provided rail ship- ments from the Prairies can bo maintained without further dis- ruption. April grain clearances from the west coast totalled 222.2 mil- lion bushels to dale this crop year, well up from the 179.2 million bushels for the same period last year.

By PAUL JACKSON Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The latest report on operation of the Employment Support Act, that slab of legisla- tion drawn up by the federal government during those first panic-stricken weeks after im- position of the 10 per cent sur- charge on imports to the United States, contains some revealing statistics about the state of Western Canada's exporting in- dustries. The legislation established an million fund. Companies whose exports to the United States were slashed drastically by the import levies could apply to the government for financial handouts. The money was sup- posed to save the jobs of Cana dian workers who might other wise have been laid off due to business woes caused by the surcharge. Up to Mach 31, a total of 134 Western Canadian companies had applied for assistance under the plan. The bulk of the com- panies were situated in British Columbia from where 81 appli- cations came. Next came Mani- toba with 33, Alberta with 11 and Saskatchewan with nine Apparently there were no appli- cations from the Northwest Ter ritories or the Yukon. The Employment Suppor Board approved 52 of the appli cations from British Columbia and disallowed 25. Manitoba won 25 approvals and had seven applications rejected. Alberta had eight and lost two, Saskat chewan had six and lost two Some applications are stil pending. For the record, Ontario sen in the most applications at 560 Quebec 276; New Brunswick 41; Nova Scotia, 13; and New foundland, two. Prince Edwar Island, along with the territo ries, apparently made no appl cations. British Columbia compame claimed help was needed to pro tect some jobs.

Piccadilly Circus plan stirs fuss LONDON (CP) A leading London planner cited Montreal's Place Ville Marie as an exam- ple of successful city-centre de- velopment as controversy boiled up here over the latest in a .ong line of tower-block schemes to rebuild Piccadilly Circus. Councillor Hugh Cubitt, head of Westminster's planning com- mittee, faced a critical ban-age from reporters as he unveiled a new blueprint for the seven-acre site sometimes described as Europe's most lu- crative chunk of real estate. Asked for one example where such wholesale redevelopment had enhanced the heart of a city, Cubitt said Place Ville Marie had succeeded in "totally transferring the city's business centre three blocks." "It has created a centre which was never there before, whether you like the architec- tural style or said Cubitt, a surveyor by profession and descendant of Thomas Cubitt, who built the Belgravia and Pimlico districts in the 19th cen- tury. PUBLIC REACTS Unlike the formerly undevel- oped Montreal site, however, Piccadilly Circus already has a world-famous profile and the public reacts strongly whenever a fresh batch of planners pro- poses an expensive face-lift. The new plan, designed tc take shape between 1973 and 1978, is the product of three pri- val-enlerprise developers who own valuable sites on the north, east and south sides of the cir- cus. The plan provided for three octagonal-shaped buildings with towers containing offices and hotels, each between 232 and 246 feet in height, their bases linked by pedestrian walkways with shops and cafes above the traf- fic. More shops are under- ground in Montreal fashion while the bronze statue of Eros is perched on another deck above ground level. Due to vanish in the demon' tion planned to begin next year are the handsome Criterion Building with its Victorian base ment theatre, the London Pavil- ion cinema and a jumble of as- sorted shops bordering Soho. Flashing neon signs would re- main a feature of the new cir- cus. Exclusive Jccobsen Polyethylene Rust- Proof, Dent-Proof, Scratch-Proof Grass Bag.
