HURIBURT DAVID K. McNAB LIC. NO. 274 LIC. NO. 670 Bonds Down TORONTO (CP) - Prices on the Canadian bond market, following major North American stock exchanges, ware lower this week, with a slight rally Friday. There was only one major new issue during the week. The province of Quebec introduced a new issue totalling $50,000,000 Tuesday. The 9'A per cent issue has two maturing dates, the first June 1, 1977, and the second, a serial issue, ranging front June 1,1871 to June 1,1980. The first issue sold at $99.50 to yield 9.35 per cent while the serial issue sold at $99.34. Dealers report that new issue sold well and that both parts are now available at par. Day-to-day money ranged on the week from 6 to 6V4 per cent, closing Friday at 6 per cent Three-a nd six-month treasury bills traded at 0.45 and 6.46 per cent, respectively, the lowest rate of the week. Hog Prices EDMONTON (CP) - Closing prices Friday provided by the Alberta hog producers marketing board: Edmonton: quoted 29 to 30.15, average 29.55. Red Deer: quoted 29 to 29.25, average 29.56. Calgary: quoted 29.40 to 30.25, average 29.84. Lethbridge: quoted 29.25 to 30.15, average 29.70. Lloydminster: no market. Grande Prairie: no market, Total hogs sold 2,671, average 29.65. Total sows 17, average 22.10. an economist's warning that the United States could be heading into "a deep and severe depression." Dr. Pierre Andre Rinfret, born � Montreal and a former economic adviser to presidents Johnson and Nixon, told the closing session of the CMFA that may be "the be* thing that could happen." He said a recession would nave three major, desperately needed benefits-"easier money, it will break inflation and wage rates will stop going up." There is an alternative-gov-ernment intervention with large injections of capital and wage, price and credit controls-out Dr. Rinfret said the Nixon administration is unwilling to impose such measures. "The government is sanguine, happy and content with the eco-nomic developments. It is pleased with what is going on Nixon's scheduled economic speech will probably say that things are great. If he says that God help us!" REACTION KEY He said crucial factors in the next few months are how the consumer will react, to what ex tent he will "retrench when he sees his assets evaporating" in the tumbling stock market, and if industry will cut back on planned spending for plant ex pension and new equipment "The American economy is out of control. The government has lost control, the Federal Reserve Board has lost control. I can't see any sign that the government will put money into the economy. More and more the odds look like the U.S. will go into a deep and severe depression." Thursday, John M. Godfrey of Toronto, the CMFA's re-elected president and head of the five-fund United Group, Canada's second largest, said fund investors should buy on a long-term basis and forget about day-to-day stock market quotations. Total mutual fund assets were down $57,000,000 to $2,620,504,140 during the first quarter of this year, compared to the last three months of 1969. The $114,479,345 in sales for the 1970 first quarter were less than half the figure of $285,107,400 for the same period in 1969. By ART JOHNSON Canadian Press Staff Writer The pattern of movement of Canadian stock markets is beginning to be an exercise in repetition. During the last two weeks markets have fallen sharply Friday Is Rally Day Order Plants To Clean Air At Toronto TORONTO (CP) - Several Industries have been asked to cut back operations because of a high air pollution index, * spokesman for the department of energy and resources management said today. The spokesman for the department's a i r management branch said the index jumped to 38 at 11 a.m. from 35 earlier in the day. The government can issue advisory notices at index readings of 32 or more, but a level of 50 must be reached before plants can be ordered to reduce operations. The 35 reading was recorded at 9 a.m. and the official warned that "it could remain in the 30s throughought the day." The index is based on sulphur dioxide and floating particles, two of many air pollutants. Beef Futures WINNIPEG (CP) - There appeared to be considerable hedge lifting with prices up to five points above previous levels at the Winnipeg live Beef Market today. The July future had a good volume of trade.

On each Thursday the decline continued until late afternoon when a moderating trend was noted. A sharp technical rally set in on both Fridays. Analysts predicted last week that the rally would not last. And, true to their forecast erosion set in on Tuesday, when markets resumed trading after the Victoria Day weekend. It's easily explained, they say. Shares are oversold to such extent by the end of the " a quick usually NAMED ATTACHE OTTAWA (CP) - Col. Donald E. Holmes, 49, a native of Hamilton, has been appointed Canadian Forces attache to Poland effective July 17, the defence department announced here. Canadian MPs Tee Off On Israel OTTAWA (CP) - For perhaps the first time, MPs from all four political parties in the Commons have criticized Israel, directly or by implication, for an attack on an Arab state. Real Caouette, Cfeditiste leader, has described the May 12 Israel attack on Lebanon as "scandalous." He has suggested that Canada protest strongly to Israel. The Commons criticism of Israel vas begun May 13 by Ralph W. Stewart, Liberal MP for Cochrane, who said Lebanon had tried to maintain relative neutrality in the Middle East He added that there are 80,000 Canadians of Lebanese origin. The next day, Arnold Peters, New Democrat MP for Timis-kaming, put this question to External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp: "In light of the objections of the minister and the repugnance of the Canadian people to the invasion of Cambodia by United States troops, has the minister been able to convey the same feeling to the Israeli foreign minister, who now is in Canada, with regard to his country's invasion of Lebanon?" Mr. Sharp gave a non-committal reply. Mr. Caouette the next day described the Israelis as "aggressors." Mr. Sharp was not in the Commons to comment. ASKS ABOUT POSITION On Tuesday this week, Paul Yewchuk, Conservative MP for Athabasca, asked for the official Canadian position on Israeli "activity" in Lebanon. Mr. Sharp replied in part: "I do not think it helps greatly ... to be taking positions with regard to particular instances. "I think we ought to be dealing with the conflict as a whole, as well as the interventions made on both sides and the unnecessary violence accompany ing them." On Wednesday, Mr. Yewchuk asked whether Canada supports condemnation of Israel by the United Nations Security Council. Mr. Sharp said Canada is not a member of the Security Coun- cil and he deplores "all these acts on both sides." Mr. Yewchuk: "Can I take it, then, the minister is indicating Ministers Replaced In Norway OSLO (Reuters) - Norway's defence and foreign ministers were replaced today in Prime Minister Per Borten's first reshuffle since his four-party coalition government came to power in 1965. Svenn Stray, 48, a supporter of Western co-operation and Eu-rope an integration, succeeds John Lyng as foreign minister as of today. Lyng, 65, announced earlier this month that he was resigning for personal reasons. 8-Cent Letter Stamp Rate In Offing WASHINGTON (AP) - Senator Gale W. McGee (Dem. Wyo.) said Friday a tentative agreement had been worked out with the Nixon administratiov on United States postal reorganization which would include authority for an eight-cent, first-class letter stamp. It now costs six cents. McGee, chairman of the Senate post office and civil service committee, said he and Senator Hiram: L. Fong (Rep. Hawaii) reached the settlement at a meeting with Postmaster-General Winton M. Blount. The committee agreed to start Monday to put the plan into legislative form. President Nixon originally asked for a 10-cent letter stamp. After this met widespread opposition, he reduced his request to eight cents. The president also has recommended a 48-per-cent increase in second-class rates and 33 per cent in third class. MncjLnJ, Wjereditk (Endurance) jCtd. INSURANCE IS JUST NOT PART OF OUR BUSINESS -IT IS OUR ONLY BUSINESS Phone 327-3009 CONN VAN HORNE JACK WARBURTON 507A 7th STREET SOUTH Defence Minister Otto Grieg Tklemand, 48, succeeds Kaare Wllloch as minister of trade and shipping June 5. The new defence minister is Guimar Helle-sen, 57-year-old former Conservative party legislator. Willoch was elected chairman of the Conservative party earlier this month and is expected to take over from Stray as parliamentary leader of the party. No change in Norway's de-ence or foreign policies are expected as a result of the reshuffle, political observers said. Potato Futures WINNIPEG (CP) - The Mari-tunes Potatoe Future Market was inactive today with some bids near previous close levels, but no offers. Open High Low Close Thur. Nov. 2.10B 2.25A Mar. 2.60N 2.65A that Canada does not support the United Nations decision?" Mr. Sharp: "No." Since the 1967 six-day Israeli victory over the Arab states one or two MPs have questioned publicly the more vigorous reprisals taken by Israel against its neighbors. SET A PRECEDENT But it is believed the first time MPs from all parties have done so in five consecutive Commons sitting days. There is a feeling among some MPs that the lack of Middle East settlement is due in part to Israel's hard-line military policy. There is also some thought that Israel's deep air raids into Egypt caused the growing presence of Russian pilots and missiles in the United Arab Republic. Some Canadian churches, notably the United Church of Canada and the Society of Friends, or Quakers, have undertaken to put the case for the Palestinians. The security for Foreign Minister Abba Eban of Israeli during his visit here last week was the tightest seen for years. At home, Mr. Eban is considered one of the minority doves among the cabinet hawks. On the Montreal and Canadian exchanges, the composite index was off 8.69 to 148.97. Combined volume was 2,675,000 shares compared with 3,578,000 last week. Losses outnumbered gains 291 to 33 with 89 issues unchanged. an week that certainty of profit overrides the dominant pessimism. RUSH TO SELL Then, at the beginning of the next week a rush to sell and get out with a gain starts a price slide, At no time was there any favorable financial news to back up the rallies. Consensus of opinion among analysts is that no lasting strength will be shown until the North American economic picture brightens considerably. First-quarter corporate earnings of Canadian companies, while better than those of the United States counterparts, have nonetheless been discouraging to most investors. In addition, the federal government has continually re-iterated, both verbally and by decisive actions, that it will not loosen up in its campaign to curb inflation. Even President Richard Nixon, who was quoted a few weeks ago as saying he would invest money in the stock market if he were able to, now is more cautious in his comments. MARKET TO GAIN? He said Thursday in Washington that the market would gain strength "in the coming months." He made no forecast of immediate advances. President Nixon's statement about Wall Street approximated opinions that have been expressed about Canadian markets. Moss, Lawson and Co. Ltd., Toronto investment dealers, stated in their latest investment letter: We feel that the market Is now poised for a major turn-perhaps not immediately, but surely within the next six months." And the Toronto-Dominion Bank, in its spring survey of Canada's business climate, said: "Some further improvements in market prices and volume may take place as additional evidence of monetary ease be- Touring Red Army Chorus Smash Hit MONTREAL (CP) - Arms linked in a show of friendship and singing For Auld Lang Syne in English, the Red Army Chorus Wednesday night brought a Montreal audience to its feet, cheering and waving hands. And the male chorus waved back. Nearly 3,000 persons jammed Place dies Arts to listen to and watch the 180 men and 12 women as they ran through a repertoire of roaring Russian folksong, stirring military music interspersed wvth sword-flashing, sparks-flying dancing. But what appeared to be an unprecedented and spontaneous move by an otherwise sophisticated and somewhat reserved Montreal audience was their waving to the performers on the stage. And as the curtain rose for the third time, they were still waving and the chorus was still waving back. Outside the cultural centre two men, wearing black arm bands paraded win signs reading: "Will you applaud murderers -Prague 1968" and 'Red Army out of Czechoslovakia." But inside the theatre the chorus, under conductor Borix Alex androv, received an enthusiastic ovation from the largely French-Canadian audience and held it spellbound through a stirring bilingual rendition of O Canada. The Red Army Chorus will tour 20 cities and give 51 performances during this tour, its third in Canada. It will remain in Montreal until May 31, then move to Sherbrooke, Que., for one day. June 2 and 3 the group will perform at Ottawa and June 4 to 7, at Toronto. comes apparent, although corporate profit prospects continue to inhibit any significant recovery for some months yet."
