Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 19, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Phone call can earn By FRED COLEMANf LONDON (AP) A few o the big winners in Europe's gold buying rush this week probably made or more each in only one day just by picking up the telephone twice. Dealers refuse to identify their clients. But they will say how it was done. One hypothetical example of a quick profit, according to London dealer worked like this: The client's wealth allows him to get a gold account with one of London's five leading bullion dealers. This saves him a variety of collecting, packing shipping, storing and insurance charges that make dealing in gold a nuisance for the less for- tunate. The dealer registers so many ounces of gold as a credit in the client's account. The actua gold stays in the dealer's safe and the client saves the charges. All the client has to do is pick up the phone to place buy or sell orders. The wise client bought Monday morning when gold sold here at 97.75 an ounce. He ordered ounces at a cost of dollars. The commission to the dealer was one quarter of one per cent, or The total cost was By Tuesday afternoon the price of gold in London had jumped to an ounce. The client sold then. He paid no on the sale. So he took in for a profit of a little more than In Paris, where gold hit an ounce at one point, potential profits were even higher. Dealers here say this kind of example is rare. Most of the buying over the last week was done by sophisticated investors purchasing gold for the long term, expecting even higher prices in the months ahead. The selling, dealers say, was mostly by producers of newly mined gold, like South Africa, rather than by quick in-and-out traders. The identity of buyers is kept confidential in Zurich by law and confidential in London by Try Before You Boy UP TO 30-DAY TRIAL ON YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION QJJjMAICO SMITH-JONES HEARING AID SERVICE RIPLEY OPTICAL 618 3rd Ave. S. Phone 328-5447 gentleman's agreement, a ma- jor reason why London and Zu- rich are the world's two big- gest gold markets. But dealers here admit that much of the buying on the Lon- don market in the last week was done by Swiss banks man- aging funds for sophisticated in- vestors. These banks represent corporations and Middle East oil interests.

Poker champ [oses title LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) Thomas A. (Amarillo Slim) Preston has lost his bid to re- :ain his title in a hold em game being played in the burth annual World Series of Poker here. Slim, of Amarillo, Tex., was edged out of the game shortly >efore midnight Thursday night tvhen he lost a pot to Jack CTree Tops) Strauss, louston, Tex. Preston had won lie titla, as in a 58-hour hold 'em game a year ago. Six of the original 13 players in the game at a down- own Las Vegas casino. The ontest broke up about 4 a.m. Friday after 12 hours of play. Each of the 13 bought into the game with worth of >lack chips. The game, a of seven-card stud, nds when one man has all the hips. they're on the proper diet. To ensure that the bugs are kept eating and oil slicks are degraded, or broken down, Dr. Townsley has developed a bacteria food, a nutrient that supplies everything a bug needs except carbon. The carbon would be sup- plied by the oil slick. In an interview, be said na- ture found a way to handle oil spills long before man arriv- ed on the scene with, pipe- lines and super-tankers. "If I take a handful of soil, there are millions of bacteria and about a quarter of them will convert oil, some of them very, very Dr. Townsley said. This is worid wide. Here, in the south and in the Arc- tic, there will be organisms that will take care of oil. However, these bacteria need other nutrients besides oil for growth and multiplica- tion." DEVELOPED NUTRIENT Dr. Townsley said he has developed a nutrient that would cause bacteria to elimi- nate a light oil slick in as lit- tle as three days. He said the nutrient, a grey powder that resembles pow- dered day, is coated with a substance that attracts it to oil. "The nutrient will work its way right into a slick, ena- bling the bacteria to go to Dr. Townsley said. "If a spill were to occur in an area where there was no natural nutrient on the water, the oil would continue to float there for months without breaking down." Dr. Townsley said his nu- trient would ultimately pro- vide the final line of defence against oil spills. "If the nutrient is used on a slick and the slick latei gels on boats, rocks and logs, it will continue to degrade be- cause the bacteria are there to work on it. "If you use straw to soak oil from beaches and add the nu- trient, the straw will compost rather than just hanging around as oil-soaked straw.' Dr. Townsley stressed that the prime importance in a spill is getting the nutrient to work early. "Oil is volatile. It's been said that after three months or more only about 15 per cent of the original spill is left and this is an asphaltic mate- rial that resists degradation." He said the nutrient has yet to be tested in open water. :However, nothing in our lab tests indicates it will not work."
