WATCH FHOM SIDELINES "Many Investors have cither retreated to the sidelines or taken a cash position until after the federal budget is introduced next he said. The minor sell-off by some nvestors created what one analyst termed "an over-sold market." Some analysts now are predicting that gains in the near future will be largely based on bargain-buying.

A poor first quarter report ny Falconbridge Nickel, a major base metal producer, had an adverse effect on the performance of the mining sector of the market.

The Toronto market's base metal Index lost 1.86 points during the week, closing Friday at 95.09.

The face we loved Is missing, the voice we loved is stilled, A place is vacant in our hearts, that never can be filled. Such pain she bore so patiently, for quite a weary while, She kept her sweetness to the end, with a brave and loving smile. And when God took her to Himself, and hushed her heart to sleep, So peaceful was her sweet face, it seemed a shame to weep. Take care of her as she takes her rest, Because on earth she was one of the best. Lovingly remembered b y John, Margaret and families. 1555-G MEAD In loving memory of Lawrence Mesd, who passed away May 7, 1967.

They say that time heals all sorrow And helps us lo forget, But time so far has only proven How much we miss you yet. God gave us strenglh lo carry on, And courage to bear the blow; What it meant to lose you No one will ever know, To know we never said good bye Will always bring regret But the hearts that loved you dearly Are the ones lhat won't forget.

Treasury Secretary John Con-nally said Friday he will notify the 'international Monetary Fund Monday that the new par value of the dollar is one thirty-eighth ol an ounce of gold instead of the previous one tliir-ly-Iiffh, a devaluation of 8.57 per cent. The declaration is strictly formal, but it is the last official step by the United States to fulfil its agreement to devalue the dollar. Since last December, when the international monetary agreement was reached, major nations have been trading their money as if the dollar was already devalued, adopting a new system of currency exchange rates which also included revaluation of several other curries. UNCHANGED SINCE 1934 It is the first time since 1934 that the dollar has been devalued. Congress made the move possible by raising the offic al price of gold to from an ounce.
