NEW YORK (AP) Dia- monds of gem to those dug from the ground- now are beihg grown in a chem- ical nursery, General Electric scientists announced today. The clear diamonds are formed as crystals under spe- cial conditions of. extreme high pressure and temperature. The diamonds, some weighing s much as one carat, still cost many times more than the gems obtained from mines. "We simply don't know whether it will ever become possible, in the future, for syn- thesized diamonds to compete economically in the gem mar- said Arthur M. Bueche, GE vice-president of research and development. General Electric announced the laboratory creation of dia- monds in 1955 and began mar- keting industrial diamonds three years later. It has become one of the world's major produ- cers of industrial diamond abra- sives. The newest step now is tie production of gemlike quality diamonds in a long and compli- cated process.

There are a couple of coal-covered photog- raphers who will vouch for it. It was all in the name of good fun at the huge Nihon Kokan steel mill in nearby Kawasaki where the prime minister was given a quick tour of the auto- mated operation. His hosts made a point of stopping beside s small mountain of Canadian coal. Donning a safety helmet, grey smock and protective glasses, Trudeau grabbed a shovel and, at the request of photographers, threw it in their direction. One shovelful went beyond the pre- scribed destination and gener- ouslly sprayed a photographer with black dust. The prime minister took out his handkerchief and dusted him off, even taking care to wipe the camera lense. MEETS LEADERS Trudeau, flying back to Can- ada later today, visited the big steel complex prior to lunching with a group of top Japanese businessmen. They included Chujiro Fujino. president of Mit- subishi Shoji Kaisha, Ltd.; Sue- yuM Wakasugi, president of Mitsui and Co.; Hisashi Tsuda, president of Sumitomo Shoji Kaisha, Ltd.; Tadashi Sasaki, governor of the Bank of Japan; Dr. Saburo Okita, president of the Japan Economic Research Centre, and Akio Morita, vice- president of Sony Corp. The visit to the steel mill was laid on for the prime minister because of its close involvement with Canada. Japan's steel in- dustry this year is expected to import tons of Cana- dian increase of 800 per cent over last year. Also in the current year, Japan is importing some metric tons of iron ore. Officials here say this will rise to metric tons next year, and then to in the following year. The steel plant also is build- ing two super tankers for Cana- dian Pacific, along with two bulk carriers, to haul Canadian coal to Japan. MCE GESTURE EDMONTON (CP) Busi- nessman Leonard Traub has built a coffin for Finance Miiiis- ter Edgar Benson's white paper on taxation in protest that "Ot- tawa wants to skim away my operating profits." Traub's company, Alberta Wilbert Vault Ltd., makes concrete vaults in which coffins are placed. The diamonds were created by Dr. Herbert M. Strong ind Dr. Robert H. Wentorf Jr. of the company's research and devel- opment centre in Schcnectady, N.Y. The diamonds were shown at a press conference here, and the two scientists presented Bieir technical report at a meet- ing today of .the American Chemical Society in Toronto. The diamonds that have been made are white and clear and also come hi a variety of colors, including blues and yellows. Japan Eyes Coal OSAKA (CP) Mines Minis- ter Frank Richter predicted today that British Columbia ;yill ship tons of coking coal a year to Japan by 1975, worth about Richter made the statement in an interview following discus- sions he and Premier W. A. C. Bennett held earlier this week with a Japanese steel industry consortium. "The Japanese are intensely interested in coking coal from British said Ri- chter. "I see no particular prob- lems in filling their steel indus- try coking coal requirements with coal from our province." The mines minister said dis- cussions with the steel industry consortium "went very and the Japanese indicated they will soon require an extra tons of coal annually. At present, the province is shipping about tons a year to Japan at a ton, most of it from the Elk Valley coal- fields in the southeastern corner of the province. Richter said the next big coal areas will be the Peace River and Bulldey Valley districts. DEPENDS ON LABOR "It's a case of yearly explora- tion and development in con- junction with the targets Japan has set for steel said Richter. "If we can keep our labor and production costs relatively stable in the near fu- ture, B.C. is going to be in a really competitive position for the Japanese contracts." _ The mines minister said an- other major topic of discussion was B.C.'s controversial Min- eral Processing Act. The act allows the provincial government to direct up to _ 50 per cent of a mine's production to smelters inside the province and has met sharp criticism from the mining industry at home and abroad. "They're also keenly inter- ested in copper concentrates and found the act frightening because many of them hadn't studied its he said. "We explained the details to them and they're no longer con- cerned to any great extent." Premier Bennett said in an in- terview Wednesday the Tokyo meetings potentially could gen- erate "hundreds of millions of dollars" in new Japanese in- vestment in B.C. The premier said the new in- vestments would be made in copper, iron and coking coal as well as the forest industry. Bennett, Richter, Lands and Forests Minister Ray Williston and 15 other B.C. business lead- ers, government officials anc their wives were here for B.C Day at Expo '70. STUDENT SERVICES INC.
