Mr. O'Kelly Czechs anxious to improve balance of trade with Canada By PAUL GESSELL MONTREAL (CP) Czechoslovakia would like to buy more products from Canada but trade emissaries find manufacturers reluctant to deal with the communist country. In recent years, Czech- oslovakia has exported to Can- ada three times as much as it has imported and is most anx- ious to reduce that ratio, Ales Svacina, public relations 'Housing prices to hike' TORONTO (CP) -Georges Couillard, president of the Canadian Real Estate Association, said this week Canadian housing prices will rise an average of 10 per cent during 1975. He said the increase will be greater in areas of Canada where demand for housing is high but the availability low. Toronto house prices, he said, might rise as much as 22 per cent in 1975. In an interview, Mr. Couillard said the levelling off of resale house prices since the spring is only a temporary situation. "We can expect the price of resale housing to increase by at least the amount of infla- tion in the coming he said. Mr. Couillard said he cannot agree with a statement by Barney Danson. federal urban affairs minister, that housing starts probably will total 000 units next year. A more realistic prediction, he said, would be between and ]95.000 starts. ONLY PER MONTH WHY PAY RENT?

Mr. Svacina's agency handles all advertising for Czechoslovakian products in foreign countries. In the January to April period this year, Czechoslovakia exported about million in goods to Canada but received only million worth in return. "It's all a matter of inform- ing Canadians about our prod- said Mr. Svacina, who denied that politics played a large part in hesitancy to deal However, Dr. Antonine Vyhlidal, Czechoslovakia's trade commissioner in Montreal, believes American companies instruct their Canadian subsidiaries not to deal with Communist countries such as Czechoslovakia. Such intervention by Ameri- can parent firms has been a sore point in Canada's trading with Cuba. Recently, the Canadian gov- ernment refused Czechoslovakia permission to open a trade office in Toronto, saying the office should wait until Czechoslovakia started buying more Canadian goods, said a spokesman for the com- pany representing Mr. Svacina in Canada. "They (Czechoslovakia) want to buy more goods but the (Canadian) manufac- turers just won't said. Czechoslovakia is especially interested in purchasing heavy machinery from Canada, said Mr. Svacina, but a recent request to a Canadian company for a long-term contract to supply billion worth of machinery went un- answered. Czechoslovakia was also un- able to- find a paper producer willing to sign a contract. "The only things we seem to be able to buy from Canada are the things we buy from developing countries." he said. In return. Czechoslovakia sold Canada tools, ceramics. glassware and steel products High prices demanded by Canadian manufacturers have also been a stumbling block in Czechoslovakia's dealings with this country. Czechoslovakia had ap- proached a Canadian manufacturer to supply jeans, said Mr. Vyhlidal, but was presented with a price a pair higher that that of a European manufacturer, although the retail price of jeans is higher in Europe than in Canada. "We wanted to buy at least 100.000 pairs of jeans but they (a Canadian manufacturer) would not lower the price." Recently a major Canadian firm lost out on a large sale of telephone equipment to Czechoslovakia because Japan was offering com- parable equipment at a price 30 per cent cheaper. Czechoslovakian trade emissaries have been placed in an embarrassing position. Instead of travelling to Canada to drum up interest in their products, they must knock on Canadian doors begging manufacturers to sell to them AWARD WINNER Dennis A. McCormack Mr Keith BiCkericm.

MELVIN. B.A.. C.A. Firms bending over backward to keep professionals happy CALGARY (CP) With more jobs for specialists available than bodies to fill them, many companies are bending over backwards to keep their professional staff, says a personnel consultant service spokesman. R. S. Phillips, Calgary representative of the Technical Service non-profit placement and per- sonnel consulting service operated by says job openings for profes- sionals such as engineeis, executives and scientists, reached record levels during the third quarter of this year. Openings in Canada increas- ed by 11 per cent in September compared with June and rose by 36 per cent over September, 1973, he says. Even when approached by another firm, specialists are reluctant to quit and relocate because the firms for which they are working are willing to make counter-offers to them, he said. "This hasn't always been the case. In the past, if a firm discovered an employee wasn't entirely happy, it would just let the employee move on." But now the firm is in the same position as the one try- ing to steal the employee and Limousin sale breaks record REGINA (CP) The Limousin sale at the Canadian Western Agribition Thursday broke international records when a full blood Limousin cow with calf sold for The cow, which was grand champion of the Limousin show, was sold by K and D Farms Ltd. of Wawota, Sask. to Xotic Sires Ltd. of Calgary. The 48 Limousin sold brought with an average price of John Rudiger, a Calgary rancher, made the highest bid in agribition history at the Charolais sale Thursday when he purchased a full French cow and her two calves for from Gladmere Farm Ltd. of Elora, Ont. Seventy four Charolais sold for with an average price of Purebred males sold for an average of and bred females for an average of 51.503. The first national Gelbvieh sale brought with an average price of for 61 head. In the market steer sale, Fellinger's Meat Merchants of Regina paid for three steers, including the show champion owned by Jud Balridge of North Platte, Neb. Sales totalled with an average price for singles excluding champions at 55.5 cents a pound. Alex McTaggart, Agribition secretary, paid top price of for a Iamb carcass own- ed by M. D. Moffat of Sin- taluta, Sask. Sales totalled with an average price per pound of Corporate donations decrease TORONTO (CP) Results of a study conducted by Ryerson Corporate Services of Toronto show that average corporate charitable donations have reached a 20 year low. As a percentage of pre tax profits, the survey shows, donations declined to about 0.5 per cent in 1973 compared with 0.8 per cent in 1972. This was the lowest level since the study began in 1953. Printing and publishing companies gave the largest proportion of their pre tax profits, 1.2 per cent, com- pared with 1.4 per cent in 1972; and food, beverage and tobacco companies gave 1.1 per cent of profits, down from 2.3 per cent the previous year. Rubber, textiles, primary metals, manufacturing and wholesale and retail trade in- dustries donated an average 0.8 per cent of pre tax profits. "they just can't afford to let him go if there's any way to avoid it." He added the situation is confined to specialized areas of employment such as engineering. A survey by the council in- dicated 148 job openings for experienced plant and project engineers, he said. So many capital expen- diture projects are underway or in the planning stages that "total demand is expected to remain just below present record levels." The survey results were gathered mostly in Alberta and Ontario, the most active areas in job placement, but the statistical results applied nationally. It did not cover vacancies in manufacturing, construction, consulting and mining firms from coast to coast or vacancies with government and institutions. Mr. Phillips said there are shortages in the fields of me- chanical drafting, chemical process engineering, com- puter programming, systems analyses, accountantcy, struc- tural design, mechanical sales engineering, construction supervision, electrical design and drafting, municipal engineering, structural draf- ting, personnel management and plant management. A lesser, but still strong de- mand exists for experienced electrical engineers, junior mechanical engineers, production and materials planners, purchasing agents and foremen, he said. Many of these jobs are associated with the billion being spent this year on capital projects in the petrochemical, pipeline, forest products, fertilizer, utility, coal mining and gasifi- cation industries. "The design of a single oil sands project for example, re- quires 2.3 million man hours of work." Many employers, unable to fill vacancies in Canada, have started recruiting in Britain, Mr Phillips said "Traditionally, Ontario has 40 to 50 per cent of the profes- sional job openings in Canada. "During the last year, op- portunities in the prairies in- creased by 60 per cent. .75 per cent of these openings are in Alberta 'Mining future uncertain' VICTORIA (CP) The future of the mining industry in British Columbia is very uncertain due to provincial royalties and a conflict between the federal and provincial governments on resource revenue, says the president of the Mining Association of B.C W. J. Tough told a news conference mining companies are facing income taxes and royalties ranging from 70 per cent to more than 100 per cent of net income. H. H. Smith Ltd.
