Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 30, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 28 1EIHBRIDGE HERALD Saturday, May 30, 1979 Progress Made By Ottawa In Anti-Inflation Program By JAMES NELSON OTTAWA (CP) First sign of success in the federal govern ment's anti-inflation progran have been shown in statistic., recording s slower rate of'in crease in prices. But officials of the prices am Incomes commission headed by Dr. John Young say the time still is far off when there can be any real relaxation in its cam- paign. Tire commission, in fact, has just moved into new offices and will increase its staff next week to handle the increasing number of pricing investigations and other work. Progress will be governed by factors including organized la- bor's refusal to provide the co- operation the commission thinks it should have. Wage demands of the postal workers are seen as a key test. The consumer price index rose by 1.4 per cent in llw first four months of this year, com- pared with an increase of 1.9 per cent in the same four months last year. In all main divisions except food prices, the increase tin's spring has been less than it a year ago. GNP K1SES Economists, however, look to a broader measure of price ac- t i v i t y h e price factor in changes in the country's gross national product. This rose by eight-tenths of one per cent in the first three months of 1909 and by only seven-tentlis of one jer cent in the first three months of this year, after tak- ing seasonal variations into ac- GLYNN T. FRANCIS At a recent convention of ths Alberto Guild of Ophthal- mic Dispensers, G I y n n T. Francii was re-elected Presi- dent for tho 1970-71 year. The following have been appointed Directors for the 1970-71 yean S. Hall, President, Ltlhbridge; N. Collingwood, Edmonton; W. Murdock, Ed- monton; B. Ford; Edmonton; B, Behm, Edmonton; R. Ingen- Ihron, Calgary; H, Pickering, Calgary; A. Harditaff, Cal- gary; W. Kruger, Calgary. This change is down from the ncreases of 1.5 and 1.7 per cent n the first quarters of 1967 and .968 respectively. A senior jrices and incomes commission iconomist said tin's is at least ;oniething to show for the com- mission's work. It began last August with no ffices and no staff. In Novem- ber it began calling on labor and management to restrain their wage demands and pricing policies. Labor rebuffed it. I But in February, Dr. Young got 300 leaders of business and professional organizations t o agree to hold price increases in 1970 to iess than their actual cost nwreases. This was endorsed by a federal-provincial premiers conference and be- came the yardstick against which the commission measures price increases. PUBLISHES HEPORTS The commission currently Is investigating freight rates and the prices of coffee, rubber tires, fine papers and duplicat- ing services and supplies. It has so far published reports on the prices of steel, tinplate and glass in some cases, in enough pressure to roll back some price in- creases. The commission now has staff of 100, of whom 22 are di rectly involved in price investi gations. Three of them are men bor rowed from private industry "or periods of six to nine months, because of their specia oiowledge of particular indus- tries. The commission compen- ;ates their employers for part ir all their salaries, and the pecial outside help is sworn to ireserve industrial secrets. The prices investigations are headed by Bert Barrow, a for mer member of the anti-dump tag tribunal recently named the fifth member of the prices com mission. Commissioner George V.

AUCTIONEERS: LES HANDLEY RODGER HANJHEY licence No. OJ0121 OTTAWA (CP) Frederick Douglas Nicoll, 53, national vice-president of the Canadian Brotherhood of Railway, Trans- port and General Workers, died in hospital Friday. Mr. Nicoll, a vice-president at ,arge of the Canadian Labor Congress, was born in Halifax and regarded as a likely succes- sor to W. J. (Bill) Smith, sched- uled to retire next September as president of the CBRT. He went to work for the CNH in 1940 and became a union staff member in 1944 as repre- sentative for the Maritimes. He left in 1957 to become ex- ecutive secretary of the brother- hood national office staff here, was appointed director of organ- izing and servicing in 1961 and was elected vice-president in 1964. He is survived by his wife, a son and a daughter. of labor, takes special responsi bility for talks with labor lead ers. Commissioner G e o r g Freeman, former chief eco- nomic analyst of the Bank of Canada, is the senior economist Paul Guerin-Lajoie, former Liberal education minister in Quebec, is vice-chairman anc helps Dr. Young with the gen- eral direction of the commis- sion. The commission's duet diffi- culty still is to get its price and wage restraint message across .0 (he masses of Canadians. It has mailed out pam- phlets, and has another :o mail, preaching the need for fighting inflation. REPLIES COME IN In the two weeks since the lirst pamphlets went out, the commission received re- per cent of them ask- ng for additional information, and 30 per cent complaining about specific price increases. The commission now is send- ing out more detailed pamphlets TRAILER SEE BEE-JAY'S 'Dutch Auction7 Advertisement On PAGE 20 pointing out (lie record of infla- tion and what it docs to wages and employment. Prices rose by 4.5 per cent last year, the largest single- year increase since the Korean war in 1951. Before 1969, prices were rising by about four per cent a year. The commission doesn't single out any particular private group as bearing any special responsi- bility for inflation, or for fight- ing it. Dr. Young has warned that if restraint is not shown in th rate of price and wage increase other more stringent measure may have to be taken. Dr. Young believes his com mission's approach is signif cantly different from those i oilier countries. Instead of sel ting firm guidelines or settin; up well-planted guideposts, h got industry leaders to agree a set of criteria against whicl price behavior can he judged.
