Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 2, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Monday, November 1, 1970 THE IETHDRIDGE HERALD 19 Banks Play Ball In Restraint bunking operation based in Lon- TOUONTO (CP) Tire prices i The narrowing of bank profit j don. and income? commission re-'margins during recent months j Participating in the new vcn- leased a report licre ronclud- may not be attributable to are thu Hoyal Can- World's Major Banks To Form One Operation MONTREAL (CP) Four of Hie world's major banks today announced plans tor the estab- lishment ot a joint international ing that the seven largest Cana- dian banks have lived up to their commitments under the federal agency's restraint pro- gram. The commission also con- cluded that the banks' prorits did not substantially increase Hie cost of tori-owing money. 'ITie 41-page report drew no conclusions about the level of interest rates and emphasized that the commission "is not ex- pressing either approval or dis- approval of the level of bank profits as such." The commission study of bank profits covered a period of ap- proximately six months prior to July 31. The report notes the commission has been concerned only "with the size of changes in prices, profits and income levels in present economic cir cumstances." INCLUDES PROVINCIAL BANK The seven banks studied b; the commission were the Roya Bank of Canada, Canadian Im penal Bank of Commerce, Bank of Montreal, Toronto Dominion Bank, the Bank of Nova Scotia nnoue Canadienne National? ard the Provincial Bank of Can ada. The study was begun alter i was reported that the banks ha( a 20-per-ccnt increase in profit! for the six months endec April 30 compared with the same period a' year earlier. In formation provided the commis sion by the banks dated fron Feb. 5, when the banks am other businesses agreed to stay within certain guidelines. During the first six months ol the restraint program, the re port said, bank profits were 12 pe cent less than earnings for the previous six months, despite an increase in assets of 3.6 per cent. The commission, after stating the banks had lived up to com- mitments, noted proposed creases in personal instalmenl loan plan rates had not been put into effect. EXTRA EFFORT "In certain respects, such as the abolition of the exchange charge on out-of-town cheques and the reduction of mortgage lending rates, the hanks have gone beyond what was strictly required of them under the agreement Net otter-tax profits of the seven banks totalled 'P168 mil- lion in 1969 and the average yield for shareholders was 11.3 per cent. The commission estimated if half of the 1900 profit had been applied to a reduction in loan rates, the average interest rate would have been reduced to 7.77 per cent from the actual figure of 8.09 per cent. Red Cross Called Great Whilewaslier DUBLIN (API An exiled Greek woman publisher says the International Red Cross is "the great whitewashes of hni- tal government. Helen Vlachos, 58, who closed down her newspapers in Athens and went into exile in 1067. ac- cused the Red Cross of doing nothing about the military- backed government of Greece. She spoke at a meeting here of the Irish branch of Amnesty International. In the Second World War. she said, the Red Cross went to German concentration camps siicb as and Da- chau but never told what was happening there. She said the organizalion was doing the same in Greece today. Mrs. Vlachos. whose retired naval-officer husband remained in Athens and was jailed, praiseri A mnesty International as "the only organization that worked.' She crcdilr.d Anthony Mar- recco, Ireasurer of Amnesty, with saving thousands ol Greeks from torture by his report on tortures that had been carried out in the country. Mrs. Vlaclios said Ihe mililary seizure of power in Greece was "not a revolution, a coup, a putsch or a mutiny." "It was a hijacking operation surprise attack by a small minority group who decided, on their own evaluation, that the country was not going the way they wanted it to go."
