Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 5, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Harvested in damp condition NORTH AREAS ASKED TO DRY GRAIN tudded Tires When and Where KEITH CONSULTING ENGINEERS EXECUTIVE APPOINTMENT WINNIPEG Gram producers in northern areas of the three Prairie provinces are being asked to dry as much of the high-moisture grain harvested this year as possible A recent survey carried out by the Canadian Wheat Board showed that at least ISO million bushels of Prairie gram were harvested in a tough and damp condition Because of serious transpor- tation delays the bulk of this gram will have to be dried by farmers themselves C W com- missioner of the Canadian Wheat said that with the critical grain car shortage only limited quantities of high-moisture gram can be moved to terminals for drying before the close of navigation shipments from elevators are now about' 75 million bushels behind and almost every available railway car is required to move the gram ac- tually needed to meet sales commitments this fall and he said Mr Gibbings said that everything possible would be done to get as much of the tough and damp gram moved as possible but the problem is that the bulk of the high- moisture grain is not the kind U.S. unions collect double amount spent in Canada I A ROWE.PEng Grant T _ Keith President 15 jleased to announce the appoint nent of L A Rowe as Alberta Manager of Keith Conbultmg ingmeers Mr Rowe a vice president and jartner in the firm re urned from Indonesia where he as Ground Water and Engineer Previous to Indonesia posting Mr Rowe lad extensive international and lomeMii irrigation experience Mr Rowe will be louated in he firm s Lethbridge office 6 433 Holiday Village dayor McGrath Drive OTTAWA United States-centred unions in Canada collected nearly twice as much money in 1971 as they spent in this country in certain key financial the latest issue of a controversial annual government report says The Corporations and Labor Unions Returns Act report for released Friday shows that international unions paid oul 6 million in strike pension and welfare benefits to Canadian residents while collecting 6 million in dues and assessments The annual report hjs been under fire from the Canadian Labor Congress and many of its allihated unions because thev say it does not provide a true picture of international union expenses and gives am- munition to breakaway nationalist labor groups Statistics which publishes the has been trying to catch up with past years and Friday's study is the second put out since March The 1970 report showed that 81 international unions collected 6 million and paid out 8 million to Cana- dian members The biggest drop in mter- nationdl union expenditures in 1971 from the previous year is in strike benefits which fell to 8 million from 1 millfon In the two years strike- benefit assessments have totalled 5 million while payments out lor strikes have been 9 million Salaries and wages paid to officers and employees of international on the other increased in 1971 from rising to 9 million from 4 million Statistics Canada includes a disclaimer in the report each vear which notes that the study is not a complete finan- cial statement for unions on either the income or expen- diture side The 1 8-milhon-member congress. 75 per cenrtompos- ed of international has been pressing for revision or elimination of the controver s'lal figures Statistics Canada chief Sylvia Ostry has said the report is being studied with a view to change and grade now needed at ex- pqrt terminals export terminals are already scrambling for every available bushel to load waiting vessels and any further delays that would result with a large movement of high-moisture grain could jeopardize our export con- tracts Delays in grain shipments have also contributed towards congestion in country elevators As a total gram deliveries by producers are now over 60 million bushels below those on the same date last year If the transportation re- quirements can be the board expect that producers still will be able to deliver all their available gram before the end of the present crop year The Wheat Board survey showed that as much as 70 per cent of this year's crop was harvested in a high-moisture condition in some northern areas A breakdown by grains shows that nearly 90 million bushels of 30 million bushels of barley and 10 million bushels of oats were harvested in a tough and damp condition Because of the critical tran- sportation shipments of high-moisture gram will be restricted to those kinds of grains that are needed to meet sales com- mitments As'a result ship- ment of high-moisture grains will be confined to oats and barley to Thunder wheat and barley to Vancouver and wheat only to Prince Rupert Corner 3rd Ave. and 8th St. S.

Nov. 1 April 301 Studded tires situation With winter just around the corner to or not to studded tires is the dilemma facing Canadian motorists. A cross-Canada Survey by The_ Canadian Press shows one province banning the use of studded three provinces with no regulations and the remaining provinces allow them during certain months of the year Price export tax to remain in oil industry By TOM CAMPBELL EDMONTON In- dustry spokesmen believe Canada's oil industry is going to have to live with price controls and export taxes for some beyond the federal government's in- dicated Feb 1 expiration date lor an existing voluntary price freeze The spokesmen doubt the federal government will lift controls entirely and subject Canadian gasoline consumers in Ontario and points west to sharp price to 10 cents a gallon In the export which will increase to 90 a barrel from 40 cents effective Dec disappear when the federal government lets the voluntary freeze ex- pire at the end of January said an official with a major 011 company Bui he said if the freeze is allowed to expire and Western Canada crude oil prices allow- ed to rise toward international levels gasoline prices would increase substantially In- dustrv sources doubt Ottawa would allow such increases During the last 12 months the price of .Western Canada oil has increased by 95 a barrel During the same period gasoline prices ol the Ottawa Valley that portion of Canada which uses domestic crude oil increased from three to five cents a gallon 'WON'T SURRENDER TAX' Industrv sources also doubl that Ottawa will give up the substantial new source of revenue created by the export up to a month at current exports to the United States of 1 1 million barrels a day Little credence is given to speculation that U S refineries will turn to other sources of supply to avoid the export tax The same tear was express- ed when the government in- troduced a 40-cent tax in Sep- tember but there was only a one-per-cent decline in total exports at that time It is very hard to say whether exports will decline because ol the tax says W Cameron manager of the Independent Petroleum Vssociation of Canada The U S has to have the oil In opting to increase the ex- port tax by 475 per cent sources said Ottawa was an- ticipating that crude oil prices in Chicago would move well above the Canadian price The increase was designed to en sure that Canada s petroleum resources were exported at lair international prices II the government is ngfit Ihe international price of oil will be 90 above the frozen Canadian price Mr Cameron said PROTECTS CONSUMERS The domestic price freeze and export tax were introduc- ed in September effort bv Ottawa to protect Canadian consumers from rapidly es talating international oil prices while at the same time ensuring that Canadian oil sold at prevailing prices in ex- U.S. dollar up on Tokyo market TOKYO Buyers drove the value of the once- faltering United States' dollar sharply higher in Tokyo last week signalling Japan s new economic problems and the improvmg-U S trade position The dollar rose eight yen Thursday and Friday closing at 275 yen Its highest price since devaluation in February And on the forward markets where buyers contract for dollars in the luture thev pa id 280 30 yen for dollars to be delivered in January The changes mean travell- ing in Japan or buying Deny report of plans to buy oil firms OTTAWA Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said Saturday a report that his department had proposed the purchase of either Shell Canada Ltd or Gulf Oil Canada Ltd is entireh CM ronrous iht Pi ronto vjlobe and had reported that the federal cabinet had turned down such a proposal Thursday from the energy department Mr Macdonald said in a statement that no such proposal had been placed before cabinet The quoting sources in the treasury said the purchase had been recommended as simple wav for Canada to enter the oil business Mr Macdonald said that he normally never commented on alleged leaks from cabinet but fell U was necessary on this occasion less there be any injury to the companies Japanese goods should become a little cheaper in terms ol U S dollars At the same time many imports to Japan will become a little more expensive discouraging Japanese purchases abroad and encouraging Japan s ex ports There is speculation that the dollar may climb to near 300 ven bv next year close to its value of 308 before devaluation The rising dollar also is ex- pected to worsen Japan's in- flation since it will take more Japanese yen to buy the same amount ol imports such as oil scrap iron and wheat The Japanese consumer already is strapped with the steepest in- flation tale of any major in- dustrial country prices average about 20 per cent above last vear Bankers said recent inter- national oil price increases were the mam psychological factor setting off the dollar's rise The oil price increases coil Japan another 6 billion a year the foreign min- istry savs EXPERTS FALL are more ir-ar the oil price ricreases behind the dollar s and the yen s de- cline Imports to Japan have jumped about 70 per cent this vear and Japan's exports tc the rest of the world have fail- ed to keep pace Japan s balance of payments has been in the red since February and its foreign exchange reserves have dropped from a record billion to billion The ministry of international trade and industry estimates this year s payments deficit at about billion The govern- had earlier predicted a modest surplus for the year port markets The double move in effect increased the price of Alberta crude oil. which sells for about 80 a barrel at the wellhead to 20 in export the Chicago area The increase in the export tax announced Thursday night bv Energy Minister Donald Macdonald would increase the price of Canadian crude oil shipped to the Chicago market to about 10 a barrel Some spot sales of crude oil in the US already have reached a barrel because of price increases touched olt by the Middle East war Alberta has indicated it will lelaliate with substantial tax increases on petroleum production and setting up a petroleum marketing board spokesmen support Mberta s stand against the ex- port tax but aren t -extremely enthusiastic about the possi- bility oi a marketing board The board could be anything Irom an extension of the current powers ol the Mberta energy resources so that it c an license the export of oil in the same wav that gas is ex- ported to an agency which the oil from producers and sells it outside the province Mr Cameron said The Mnknown equation is whether an Alberta marketing board would be prepared to producers an inter- national price for their oil PACIFIC car
