A crowd folk heroes as Santa Clous end Mother Goose, estimated at lined the six-mile ro.uta to see such airlines are feeling the pinch Farm animal waste creates major pollution problems EDMONTON (CP) Today's fast-growing livestock popula- tion is creating pollution prob- lems which arc rapidly assum- ing major proportions, says James McQuitty of the Univer- sity of Alberta. Mr. McQuitty, associate pro- lessor of agricultural engineer- ing, contends that research into the farm animal waste problem has been slow to develop in Canada. In an article in the univer- sity's magazine, New Trail, Mr. McQuitty says the waste prob- lem associated with farm ani- mals is of a magnitude not often appreciated. "A beef fcedlot covering a quarter containing to head has a potential waste problem equivalent to a city of some The nature of animal waste Is such that it cannot be treated in the same way as human waste, and new methods must be found for treatment and disposal. Mr. McQuitty says active re- search programs were first de- veloped in European countries and there has been, during the last five or six years, considera- ble effort in this area in the United States. But investigations in this par- ticular subject "are possibly the least attractive of any research Mr. McQuily said. The smells and dirty condi- tions tend to discourage work in this area. "But better and safer meth- ods ol treating, handling and disposal of farm animal wastes must be found if water pollu- tion, smell and nuisance and health hazards to animals and operators are not to become a more critical problem in the next decade than they are today." BUILP AIRPORT YOKOHAMA (AP) City of- ficials announced they will build an airport ,or the exclusive use of short take-off and landing "air buses" to help alleviate highway traffic problems. By JOHN CUNNIFF AP Business Analyst NEW YORK (AP) Some of the major United States airlines are seeking permission to re- duce the number of flights. Oth- ers are laying off scores of workers. And the once-enthu- siastic parade passengers seems to be marking time. Charges of unfair government regulation and unfair market- place competition are wide- spread. Fears are expressed loudly about a crisis hi financ- ing modern equipment. And some of the major lines might be to the red for the year, Reflecting the problems, and compounding some of them, prices of airlines stocks have dropped sharply on the stock market. The glamorous airlines indus- try, in other words, is beginning to resemble its plainer cousin, the railways, if judged solely by its problems. And right now those problems dominate as never before in. airline history. The financial situation, as portrayed by the Air Transport Association, an industry group, is hair-raising. Read it: WAS NO FLUKE "In the first quarter of 1970 the scheduled airlines recorded their largest quarterly loss in history. The 12 major airlines as a group had losses of million; six of the 12 individu- ally suffered losses; all nine re- gional airlines had losses total- ling million; and all three cargo airlines had losses total- ling ?ll million." Was this a one-quarter fluke? The ATA says no. "Preliminary data for the first six months of 1970 indicated an industry loss of million, the worst half- year'results in history." Sched- uled airlines will show a loss for the year, it said. Through the mid-1960s the in- dustry enjoyed tremendous grovrth and good profits, buoyed Sesame Street good for preschoolers NEW YORK (AP) The TV show Sesame Street has shown that television can be used effectively to teach three- to five-year-old children simple Exports imports OTTAWA (CP) Canada registered a record surplus of million in dealings in goods and services with the rest, of the world from July through Sep- teisber, Dominion Bureau of Statistics reported Monday. The surplus on tlie current ac- count of the balance of interna- tional payments daring the third tjuarter of the year was gener- ated from a strong performance in merchandise trade, in which the value of exports outstripped imports by million. The thiid-quarteF current-ac- count surplus compared to a surplus of million in Uw same three months of 1969, a deficit of million in the final quarter of last year and surpluses of ?4l Tnillkm and S246 million in the first two quarters of this year. Adjusted to discount the usual Eiimmer upswing in export ac- tivity, the July-September sur- plus is reduced to S163 million, down from million and million in the first and second quarters respectively. But it still shows substantial strength compared a seasonally-ad- justed deficit of million in the third quarter of last year. REVALUATION NOT FELT The statistics bureau said re- valuation of the Canadian dollar June 1, which would tend to rnakn Canadian products more expensive to foreign buyers and imports cheaper in Canada, did not appear to be a major drag on Canada's growing merchan- dize-trade surplus. The excess value of exports over imports in the first nine mouths of this year approached a record S2 billion, nearly 15 per cent fatter than during the same 1869 period. Only a small part of the growth resulted from an in- crease in the average price of Canadian exports by about 3.5 per cent white the price of im- ports advanced by less than three per cent. Although there-wore .signs of some slowing down in tiic ex- porting pace (luring the third (juarler, importing activity re- mained of a slowdown in hu.'-'ines.s and productive activity and con- Burner spending. facts and skills, says Educa- tional Testing Service. The service said that results oC its testing 943 children showed a gain in learning by all who watched thb show, but the highest gains were made by those who watched most often. The study also found that dis- advantaged children who watched frequently made more gains than advantaged children who watched less regularly. The authors, Dr. Samuel Ball and Mrs. Gerry Bogatz, said this finding meant the educa- tional gap between advantaged and disadyantaged children coald be reduced "even by the time they enter first grade." The study also found that three-year-olds who were regu- lar viewers had learned more by the end of the series than older children who watched less frequently. Sesame Street, produced by the Children's Television Work- shop and financed by public and private agencies, is an hour- long program for preschool chil- dren on public television sta- tions. The ETS survey was con- ducted in Boston, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Ariz., Durham, N.C., and a rural area of California. Children were tested before the program went on the air and after it had been on for 26 weeks. Bread price increases acceptable OTTAWA (CP) Bread price increases in Ontario earlier this year are acceptable by the prices and income commission anti-inflation formula. In a report issued Monday, the commission said it is clear in each case that ''increased costs have been substantially greater than the additional rev times from price increases." The four companies, who an nounued price increases last June of eight-tenths of a cent wholesale, are Canada Bread Division of Corporate Foods Ltd., Christie's Bread Division of Nabisco Ltd., General Baker- ies Ltd., and Weston Bakeries Ltd. The commission's agreement with the business community, reached last February is fbst any price increases will be held below increases in costs. The report said all four bak- ery firms shov.'ed declines in if) lines in 1970 profits compared with a year ago and nae of Ihf suffer losses this year. by a vigorous economy a1 general feeling among consum- ers that times were good. But, as economic controls began slowing American eco- nomic activity, the airlines were affected more than most Indus- tries. Passenger growth, for exam- ple, averaged 1? per cent a year from 1963 to 1968, the ATA says. But now it forecasts a drop to only two per cent for domestic operations by the end of the year. RACE TO MODERNIZE Freight traffic, measured by the same group, grew an aver- age of 23 per cent a year be- tween 1963 and 1968, but that growth now is forecast to be as low as six per cent by the end of 1970. Fighting to overcome the downturn, many airlines com- peted by offering discount-and promotional fares, which seem- ingly only lowered still more their yield per passenger mile from 6.24 cents in 1962 to 5.34 cents in 1968. Airport and airway delays, the ATA says, have added many millions of dollars to expenses. And if forecasts come true, the average airport charge for land- ing one -aircraft will be 15 per cent higher this year than last. Meanwhile, time marches on. Because of advances in technol- ogy, the industry is constantly in a race to remain modern. Each year more than mil- lion of equipment must be fi- nanced, sometimes at interest rates as high as 11 per cent.
