In a telephone interview, Mrs. Feldman said her husband left Winnipeg Saturday with the eggs and she added that he pro- mised to be "quite conspicuous" in Trail when he arrived. She said he was due there some- time today. Mrs. Feldman said she wasn't at liberty to divulge details of his plan. "But don't she said. "You'll have absolutely no dif- ficulty in finding him once he gets there." She wouldn't elaborate. Mr. Feldman's last shipment of eggs to B.C. was seized from five stores in the Trail area by the B.C. Egg Marketing Board. The April seizure was made because the eggs were not pur- chased through a licensed agent, board secretary Ed Morgan said. The seizure touch- ed off a political row involving Ottawa and the B.C. and Mani- toba provincial governments as well as several threats of law suits against various parties in in the dispute. Meanwhile, the B.C board has authorized Mr. Morgan "to talc such action as is necessary to maintain stability and price structure in our own B.C. egg industry." He said Sunday this could include another round of seizures, although Mr. Feldman has said "they'll have to deal with me" if it comes to that.

Canada ready i to outfisli U.S. VANCOUVER fCP> En-j vironnient Minister Jack Davis j said Saturday that Canada is prepared to outfish the United States "like mad" if the U.S. refuses to allow Canadian fish- ing vessels within its fishing zones. "If they exclude us from their fishing zones then we'll fish like mad on the edge ol their zones, and I believe fish- ing on the edge of their zones will bring them back to the bargaining table." Mr. Davis said in an interview He said any similar retalia- tory action by the U.S. outside Canadian zones would hurt Canada "not as much as we'd hurt them." He said the U S wants to end the practice of each country's fishing vessels being allovied I in the other's zone, but "we're not about to say okay because basically we've outfished them." Canada last week served 60- day notice on the U.S. that it would extend salmon net fish- ing to the 12 mile limit and i lengthen the trolling season to give Canadian fishermen a greater share of the catch. 1 The move came after a breakdown in treaty talks be- tween the two countries in which Canada sought a reduc- tion in the U.S. catch of Fraser River salmon. But the minister cautioned that he was talking only of op- tions Canada has if no agree- ment is reached between the two countries by the time the current pact expires June 15.

Rowland, who in 10 years has built up Lonrho into a company that made profits of 19 million million) last year, may ap- peal against the judge's deci- sion his lawyer said.

The government investigation came after wheat prices soared on the Kansas City Board of Trade, forcing the agriculture department to raise its subsidy to exporters. The department originally es- timated it would pay out million in export subsidies dur- ing the summer. Instead, it paid out million. The Commodity Exchange Authority has declined to com- ment on its investigation so far, saying only that it is analysing information forwarded by its But authority administrator Alex Caldwell told a House of Representatives subcommittee in March that the results of in- vestigations are not forwarded to Washington unless violations are uncovered. The General Accounting Of- fice also is investigating the al- legations as part of an over-all investigation into the Russian wheat deal. The results of that investigation are expected to be announced at the end of May or first of June. Dealings on the Kansas City Board of Trade first attracted attention when the American Bakers Association alleged some grain-futures traders were trying to force up the closing price of wheat by placing large purchase orders minutes before the exchange closed. This tactic, the bakers al- leged, qualified exporters for larger government subsidies. Export subsidies, phased cut last September, were designed to make U.S. grain competitive with grain from other countries. They were based on the differ- ence between the dosing price of wheat on the U.S. commodity market and the price of wheat on the world market. The subsidies were figured each day and were effective for the following day. Since the amount of subsidy an exporter received depended on when he asked the agricul- ture department for not on when he actually bought the exporters were speculating on whether the sub- sidy would increase. They did this by holding their grain and hoping the domestic price of wheat went up, thus causing the government to in- crease the export subsidy.
