A survey of a number of B.C. pulp producers indicated the price for bleached their major will rise July 1 to the area of or a and possibly higher. The last effective April was a boost of to to depending on grade. Regarding an executive of one firm said the price will likely be a ton within six to eight months. It was increased March 1 to a ton in the B.C. lower mainland and in the western United States. Officials said fluctuating market conditions and world currencies are making it difficult to settle on time and amounts of increases. One executive said the price of fuel oil for pulp mills has increased three times since adding a ton to the cost of manufacturing pulp. Petroleum costs adding to freight bills combine with the mill fuel hikes for an extra cost of about a ton. B.C. forest firms also will face higher labor costs this year when contracts are settled with the Internatioanl Woodworkers of America. Cut back made in wheat crop EDMONTON The Alberta agriculture department reports today spring seeding is slowly becoming wide-spread across Alberta. Many producers altered their original seeding intentions due to the late spring and are indicating a cut back in wheat acreage in favor of barley and rapeseed. Spring threshing is progressing rapidly in areas where last year's crop remains in the fields. recovery of crops is lower than originally expected due to the mice and snow damage during the winter and wet conditions this spring. Bushel weights are low 2nd grades have dropped the report said. but it may also discourage individual in- itiative by the Canadian wheat-grower and build an inflexible bureaucracy. The study was prepared by the General Accounting Office which does investiga- tions at the request of Congress. I was made public by Representative Charles Vanik prior to being submitted to Congress today. Gold price jumps LONDON price of gold jumped on the London bullion market today following a vote by the United States Senate to allow U.S. citizens to buy and sell gold. One dealer said the market was In early gold was sold for an an increase of from Wednesday's close. Gold mining shares rose sharply on the London stock market. In gold gained an ounce to stand at an dealers said. Vanik said in an accom- panying statement that the GAO report is no way a statement of approval or criti- cism of the program adopted by our good neighbors to the But he said the Canadian system seems to give priority to consumers and is time that Agriculture Secretary Earl Butt and his department realized that their duty lies in helping the American consumer rather than the agri-business The GAO report outlined the activities of the Canadian Wheat Board in developing markets and export sales and in regulating prices under Ot- tawa's contrasting it with the U.S. system where producers and exporters manage their own markets. In the GAO re- port found six and five in the Canadian system. While Canada has readily available information on its wheat problems persist over the reliability and timeliness of the data received in the U.S. agriculture department's' reporting the study said. Canada also has better con- trol delivery and marketing and can regulate the flow of supplies between domestic and export markets and create a two-price system to the price in Canada from higher world the report said. The Canadian system elimi- nates market fluctuations and speculation and makes easier to deal with agencies of Communist countries. It also facilitates product promotion and the study adds. Grains council sets date for metric system count WINNIPEG The Canada Grains Council metric conversion committee announced Wednesday that Feb. is the date set for the Canadian grains industry to switch to the metric system of measurement. The decision was made following a meeting of senior operating executives of grain the Canadian Wheat Board and the Canadian Grain Commission. Committee chairman Earl Baxter of the grain commission said the date was chosen for conversion because it is most convenient for handling companies to make the necessary changes in their scales and operating plants. As of that he country transfer terminals and all regulatory bodies will convert to the metric system. At most export grain contracts are written in metric to be the official unit of the grain trade after conversion.
