Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, November 7, 1974 Stockpile lowest since records kept World wheat reserves on decline WASHINGTON (API -The world wheat reserve will be down to 48 8 million metric tons by the time new crops are ready in 1975, the lowest stockpile since world record keeping began 15 years ago, says the U.S. agriculture department Total grain supplies, including corn and other QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC EDDY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic 303 5th Street South Metcalf Building PHONE 328-7684 coarse grains used mainly as livestock feed, will be down more sharply than indicated five weeks ago. the department's foreign agricultural service said HARVEST PROBLEMS The declines are the result of troubled harvests in many areas of the world this year, particularly the United States and the Soviet Union. The' report said total grain output this year will be about 916 million tons, down 17.4 million from the level estimated Sept. 24. Almost all of the decline since then resulted from reduced harvests of livestock feed grain, mainly corn. The U.S. grain harvest was reduc- ed by almost eight million tons since the Sept. 24 report, while the Soviet crop was down five million tons. In its earlier analysis, the department estimated that world wheat supplies remain- ing at the end of the current crop year for use in 1975-76 would total 52.7 million tons. Although down from the 6.3 million on hand at the beginn- ing of this season, the Sept. 24 estimate exceeded the scant reserve of 50.9 million held worldwide at the beginning of the 1973-74 wheat crop year.

Coal is being looked at as a source of synthetic gas to supplement or replace natural gas for the petrochemical industry. Most of Canada's coal is produced in Alberta mines, such as the No. 4 mine at Canmore, Inland terminals system study for grain planned WINNIPEG (CP) United Grain Growers Ltd. has com- missioned a preliminary study of the feasibility of a system of inland terminals to speed grain movements and cut costs. President A. M. Runciman told delegates to the annual meeting of the farmer owned co operative here Wednesday that the study was prompted by government plans for the abandonment of branch railway lines and possible increases in freight rates. REDUCE COSTS "Such elevators could clean the gram within the prairies Old house monument TORONTO (CP) When Rollo and Carol Myers bought an old. run-down house they thought it had a lot of poten- tial but had no idea it was a historical monument. The house is one of 400 homes on the Toronto Historical Board's list of historical buildings. Three criteria are used by the board to determine whether to list a building's architectural, historical or contextual significance. and forward trainloads of grain of export quality to the seaboard. Costs C9uld be reduced and movement of grain on time would be better in theory at least." Mr. Runciman said the United States is developing a network of inland terminals, although he said the economics of such a system would be somewhat different in Canada. On related transportation matters, the company's an- nual report expresses concern about any increase in freight rates for feed grains that would enhance the position of eastern livestock producers at the expense of their western counterparts. In the field of turkey production, for example, the report says higher freight rates could make it more attractive for Saskatchewan farmers to expand their out- put, yet federal quotas could force available feed grains into eastern Canadian markets. The report also complains about the lack of firm govern- ment planning for branch line abandonment. Hazy transpor- tation policies made it dif- ficult to plan a capital expen- ditures program for country and terminal elevators. WANTED!
