Robert E. Oliver, president of the Canadian Advertising Advi- sory Board, said individuals feel alienated by bigness and rapid change. "They feel they may have lost that element so precious to the human psyche, a sense of individual worth." Mr. Oliver told a meeting of the International Chamber of Commerce that {he advertising industry is concerned because advertising, as the visible face of business, becomes a symbol of society itself and because ad- vertising is a form of commu- nication which can take place only in an atmosphere of con- fidence. He said in a speech prepared for delivery today that the Ca- nadian industry has adopted its own code of advertising stand- ards as well as accepting inter- national standards. "But the Canadian program has, I believe, two unique fea- tures we publicize the codes widely and we use media where necessary as our enforcement arm." Mr. Oliver said most com- plaints are settled quickly and others are considered by the Advertising Standards Council. "In the present sensitive cli- mate we think it important for business to take special pains to let customers know they care. "We believe that we have demonstrated that, through co- operative effort, self-regulation can be an effective, prompt and low cost alternative to in- creased govern ment regu- lation." Constable dies playing ball EDMONTON (CP) Terry Langford, a 31-year-old St. Al- bert, RCMP constable, col- lapsed and died during a base- ball garoa at RCMP headquar- ters Tuesday, it was reported Thursday.

Gas reserve estimates disputed CALGARY (CP) Esti mates of increased natara gas reserves by Pan-Alberta Gas Ltd. were disputed yes terday at the opening of an ex port hearing before the Alber ta Enargy Hesources Conserva tion Board. Pan-Alberta, a subsidiary o: Alberta Gas Trunk Line Ltd. has applied to export 1.3 trillion cubic feet of gas over a six year period to United States customers starting in Novem ber, 1974. The company says increas ing gas prices will lead to more gas field development ir trilliDn cubic feet to provincial gas reserves.

First-quarter results ot msny producers showed a considerable recovery from 1970-71 losses, and observers say the momentum begun in the last half of 1972 shoa'.d continue through this year. The strongest sectors of the industry have been building materials and packaging, but profits for pulp and paper are also rising. Analysts say demand for lumber should level off some- what in the second half as residential construction slows from last year's pace, but the lattsr Aveataess should be.bal- aniced by the first-half strength. Production of pulp is ex- pected to increase about five per cent over 1972 levels. Ob- servers say a lack of new ca- pacity, due in part to over-ex- pansion in tha early 1960s, in- dicates a future demand-sup- ply imbalance that will work in producers' favor to put up- ward pressure on prices. Analysts say while the stocks have already shown a considerable rebound, the ex- pected increase in industry earnings should produce fur- ther share gains. PRICES SHOULD CLIMB Odium Brown and T. B. Read Ltd., Vancouver, says share prices of forest product companies will likely see higher prices in months ahead. "Such strength would be a profit taking opportunity in this group in our view, since 1973 will likely be the peak year for earnings in the cur- rent business cycle." The firm says 1973 will be a record year for MacMillan Bloedel and recommends its shares as "a hold at present but sell into further strength." The stock closed Wednesday at 'z. Great Lakes Paper reported first-quarter earnings of 25 cents a share, compared with a loss a year ago. It came with higher sales, improved operating ratios and news- print price increases. Bongard Leslie says it has revised upwards per-share earnings of Great Lakes Pa- per for 1973 and recommends the stock for capital gains. It closed Wednesday at Wood Gundy Ltd. says: "Dcmtar represents a high quality participation in the forest products industry with added appeal provided by its construction materials and chemical operations. The shares are recommended for inedjum-term appreacistdon." RECOMMENDS SALE Canadian Business Service, however, says: "We consider Domtar fully valued at cur- rent levels: in view of the substantial recovery that has taken place in the stock since- the low of 1971 we rec- ommend a sale in favors of Molson's." It says Molson should have a year of strong growth and present weakness provides an opportunity for long-term growth. for other commodities, princi- pally wool. The stipulation that tha wheat talks will be concrete reflected the expectation of both sides that wheat will play a para- mount role in the future trade between them, just as it has done in the trade between China and Canada, which has sold more than one billion dollars worth of wheat to the People's Republic hi the past 12 years. The best of those years came in 1972, when Canada, benefit- ing from a two year period in which the Chinese cut Australia out of the market for political reasons, delivered wheat worth a total of million, repre- senting more than 87 per cent of the total for Canadian ex- ports to China during the year. With wheat accounting for such a high proportion of the export total, Canadian officials re delighted when Premier Chou En-lai, in a discussion with External Affairs Minis- ter Mitchell Sharp here last Au- gust, gave his personal pledge that Canada could count on China as a long term customer for her first such commitment the Chinese had given since the first of the wheat dea's was tied up back in 1961. Although Chinese officials have since reiterated that com- mitment, it is evident that its meaning must be reassessed in the light of the new pledge to the Australians, who removed their political disability hi the Chinese market with the labor government's swift recognition of Peking after its victory over the pro-Taiwan Liberals in last December's general election. Although Canada was not mentioned during the Austral- ians' talks here, the Chinese did point out that they will be continuing to buy wheat from suppliers other than Aus- tralia, an observation that Ca- nadians and Australians alike are taking 35 a tacit acknowl- edgement of the commitment already made to Canada. The question that does arise, however, is why the Chinese have gone beyond a verbal commitment hi their talks with the Australians, offering to negotiate a long term con- tractual arrangement, without so far offering if similar ar- rangem'snt to Canada, until recently the most favoured of her wheat suppliers. The questions seems partl- culary apposite when it is re- membered that all Canada's wheat sales to China in the first eight years were mada under long term agreements o! the kind now being offered to the Australians, with the move from three year to one year contracts m 1959 coming at the request of the Chinese. Grain Prices STP ban proposed WASHINGTON (AP) The Centre for Auto Safety peti- tioned the Federal Trade Com- mission Thursday to ban what the centre called deceptive claims for STP treatment. The centre asked that the ban be accompanied by an order re- quiring STP either to give past customers their money back or to run advertisements calling STP a waste of money and a possible threat to efficient en- gine operation. The centre was founded by Ralph Nader and its financed primarily by Consumers Union, which in 1971 said its tests showed any benefits from STP could be obtained more cheaply by using a thicker grade of oil. "STP Corp. spends about million dollars a year on tele- vision advertising for its prod- ucts. Many of the ads feature the company's founder and chairman, Andy Granatelli. In reply, Granatelli said that "the current attack on STP by the Centre for Auto Safety is an effort by a small non-govern- mental group to attract public- ity. We believe this unknown group is simply seeking public- ity by the device of bringing to- tally unfounded and irrespons- ible charges against us."
