Mr. president of United Grain told the 350 delegates at the organ- ization's annual meeting that the firm's directors were at some of the steps taken by government to reduce the price of food. The directors were critical of actions to remove the tariff on beef entering Canada from the United an export embargo on feed beef and the limit on domestic wheat prices. These are attempts to provide cheaper food to con- sumers. is an inescapable law that before consumers can have low producers must have high Mr. Runciman said in his annual report. an incentive to pro- a facmer will use special skills on purchased imputs to produce more.

Mayor Elmer Borstad said the submission asks that the service be provided to Ed- monton's downtown Industrial Airport rather than to the International 16 miles south of the city. Mayor Borstad said the downtown Edmonton destina- tion would help businessmen travelling to Edmonton and returning the same day. the Chamber of Commerce said it would in- tervene at the hearing which will listen to applications from four airlines.

Mr. fiunciman said that in spite of record grain and sales of fertilizer and seed during the last fiscal the firm sustained a loss on its country elevator system basic reason is that revenues from handling and storage charges in many cases are inadequate to cover Mr Runciman said there will be a reduction in the number of elevators operated by the company because returns were barely enough to maintain smaller elevators at a great number of points in order to provide competition. conditions of sharp- ly mounting such a policy means elevators with a low handling potential must be disposed of or the whole elevator system is STEEL PRICE UP NEW YORK U.S Steel said it will boost the price of sheet and strip effective Jan. and will drop an intermediate grade of cold rolled steel from its line.
