Economic drop may to hit convention business over NEW YORK David Smart of newly- elected president of the Canadian Association of Convention wants to throw some stones. Trouble he lives in a glass house. How do you fight a proposed change in American tax laws that would hurt convention business from the United he when you have the same type of law in Smart said in an interview Canadian convention business is but he is in a bind when he argues his case. Legislation to end tax deductions to Americans who attend conventions outside the country now is in committee in the House of Representatives. It may go before the. House as part of a tax-revision package in July. Smart said Canadian associ- ations which meet outside their country already lose their tax deduction for that convention. can't fight it U.S. as Canadians unless our government changes its COULD LOSE MILLIONS If the U.S. legislation Canada could lose million in annual convention business from the United Gov 't proposes new land fees VICTORIA Mines Minister Leo Nimsick introduced amendments to the petroleum and natural gas act Wednesday which would double the fees and rentals for land used for the production of oil and natural gas. The minister said outside the House the government felt there was too much land held without any work being done and the new fee schedule would encourage petroleum and natural gas companies to do more drilling. In a news he said a relatively small number of major operators are holding huge acreages of petroleum forcing small independent companies to obtain rights from them instead of the crown. The government was no longer willing to foster this kind of he said. The bill also removes the previous ceiling on royalty Prices paid for farmer products dips OTTAWA The prices farmers received for their products dropped slightly between February and but still were 21.8 per cent higher than those received a year earlier. Statistics Canada said today in a monthly report on farm prices that the index for prices dropped 4.2 from the February total of 215.2. The index is based on 1961 prices equalling 100. That means farmers received in March for the same farm products they sold for in 1961. Between February and prices dropped in On- the largest farm- producing and the four western but they rose in both Quebec rates the government could charge on crude oil which amounts to about bareels a day in B.C. The minister said outside the House the government would be boosting these royalty rates very soon to enable it to acquire 80 per cent of the profits accruing from increases in the wholesale price of crude oil. The legislation also sets up a mediation and arbitration board which will have the authority to arbitrate disputes centring around rights to use land for the purpose of developing or producing petroleum and natural gas.

Smart said if the legislation real will be the delegates of American associations who are used to meeting every third or fourth year in London and other major foreign cities. And organizations like Smart's have to encourage more and people from other to come to would be extremely difficult. This would involve thousands of dollars in additional travel expense for those from faraway countries. There would have to be development of completely new markets and new sales techniques. In fighting the U.S. legisla- Smart said of our prime supporters will be the giant hotel chains that have invested millions of dollars in hotels in Dollar value rises LONDON A rush to buy United States dollars continued to push up the value of the U.S. currency on European foreign- exchange markets-today. In Frankfurt the dollar rose to 2.50 West German increase of 5.75 per cent from a low of 2.37 marks Tuesday. By the dollar had sunk to its lowest levels for a year against some European currencies because of mounting anxiety about the U.S. political situation and world economic conditions. But reports that three of the world's most powerful central U.S. Federal Re- the West German Bun- and the Swiss national poised to intervene on the markets to support the dollar caused a sudden reversal in the trend. In the dollar gained 20 centimes against the Swiss franc in 48 rising to 2.9600 francs today from 2.7650 francs Tuesday. The pound sterling also con- tinued to strengthen today against European although its advance was not as rapid as that of the dollar. WASHINGTON -The United States economic decline resulting from the Arab oil embargo may be about government figures show. Industrial output increased in April by four-tenths of one per the first after four months of the Federal Reserve Board reported Wednesday. Output fell by three-tenths of one per cent in March. The board said the mam reason for the April turn- around was a 14-per-cent increase in auto assemblies. The rate of auto assemblies increased to 7.5 million units a compared with 6.6 million units in March. Government economists interpreted the April increase in output as an indication that the worst effects of the oil embargo on the economy may be although they cautioned against over- optimism.
