The single-day drop was the fifth sharpest on and followed other major drops of 24.24 points Nov. 9 and 28.67 points Nov. 19. Midway through Monday's the Dow average was down more than 33 points. Had that held to the it would have exceeded all declines other than the Great Crash of 1929 and the day in 1962 when President Kennedy and the steel industry clashed over price increases. The London stock market fell to a 2Vz-year low and an index of West German stocks dropped more than two points to a record low. All other European exchanges were sharply lower.

The agriculture minister would not .predict what com- modities will cost more or how much prices will saying only that price increases will probably affect a number of food items. He said the price increases would be the result of fuel price increases and higher costs for fertilizer com- ponents. At a public meeting Mr. Whelan said federal government will give Cana- dian farmers the highest priority of any group during fuel He said Canadians must realize that farmers are sub- ject to most of the same economic forces as con- and in the case of energy even more vulnerable.

Oil weapon ALGIERS Leaders at the Arab summit conference generally agree the oil weapon should continue to be used and should be ex- panded if necessary against countries supporting informants said today. But the Arab oil exporters were asked to make special efforts to exempt France and other from the bans and cuts. The sources said the Arab oil states are expected to tighten the embargo against the United States and the Netherlands but to ease restrictions on Japan because of Tokyo's recent en- dorsement of the Arab call for Israeli withdrawal from all occupied territory. The sources said the Arab leaders also are agreed in principle that peace talks with Israel should be held in three stages. The talks are expected to start next month in Geneva.
