Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, November 5, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 23 Gold price rises; dollar in slump LONDON (AP) A slump- ing U.S. dollar on European money markets and fears of a deepening U.S. recession sent Oil supply report due in 10 days OTTAWA (CP) Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said Monday it likely will be at least another 10 days before a report on oil supplies is made public. Mr. Macdonald said he has received the report from the National Energy Board, but has not yet had time to read the document or present it to the cabinet. The report is based on hear- ings the board held throughout western provinces last spring on available oil supplies and domestic demand. Earlier, the government said it had hoped to release the report by the end of Oc- tober. The board study is expected to give a clear picture of how much oil remains in reserves in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Mr. Macdonald already has said dwindling reserves in the west will mean a reduction in crude oil exports to the United States, perhaps "to a trickle by the end of the decade." Wheat sales programs to be adjusted OTTAWA (CP) The wheat board will tailor its sales programs to take into account the poor yield of high- quality wheat from Western Canada this year, Otto Lang told the Commons Monday. Mr. Lang, minister respon- sible for the wheat board, said "there is certainly more lower grade wheat than usual on hand." "However, the wheat board sees a fairly large supply of good-quality wheat left over from previous years as well as a substantial amount in this year's he told Jack Murta "We will be making such ad- justments in selling programs as are required to meet the circumstances." He did not say what adjust- ments would be made. Mr. Lang also said the wheat board would like to reduce the amount of grain carried over, or kept on hand, from one crop year to the next. He said this year's surplus from the 1973 crop year was approximately 100 million bushels lower than the amount of 1972 grain on hand last vear. the price of gold up on the London and Zurich bullion markets today. In London the metal reach- ed an ounce, up over Monday's close. In Zurich it hit up from Gold last reached these levels in April, a month that recorded the metal's highest- ever trading price, an ounce. Gold is traditionally considered a safe investment in times of economic trouble. Dealers said the dollar was faring poorly in Europe because of bankers' fears U.S. short-term borrowing rates will again corne down in the near future; economic uncer- tainty over today's U.S. elec- tions; and the possibility of a U.S. coal strike next week. In Paris the dollar was down to 4.6750 francs from 4.68 at Monday's close. In Frankfurt it slid to 2.5510 marks, down from 2.5580. And in Zurich it was down to 2.8205 Swiss francs, from 2.8365.

Montreal Midland Doherty Limited Raw sugar price sets record NEW YORK (AP) The Soviet Union's purchase of tons of raw sugar has increased world sugar futures to a record SOVz cents from 48.97 cents a pound price in the March delivery. The Russians' purchase Monday from the Philippines came on the first day of a new two cent a day limit on the increase per pound in the price of sugar. Analysts say Arab countries have been buying up more sugar than they can use and speculating in sugar futures because con- suming countries have been pinched by short supplies. The analysts say the Russians also could be buying to drive the price up and increase their profit. However, other industry observers say the Russians may have sold too much sugar, and may have run short. The competition among consuming countries for sugar has driven the per pound futures price up 20 cents in the last six weeks. Sugar firm increases price again Building value up EDMONTON (CP) The value of building permits issued so far this year has soared above the million mark, well ahead of the same period in 1973. the city plann- ing department said Monday.
