A survey of 17 basic food items by The Canadian Press showed sugar prices up in six of 12 cities considered and coffee price increases in 10 cities. Earlier this month, sugar prices increased to a record a ton on the London mar- ket and dealers predicted shortages likely would con- tinue well into 1975.

The shelter closed when its government grant ended after it was declared inadequate by the city health department and the operation is to move to another building. The residents were to stay at the single men's hostel until the new building was ready. However, a group of about 15 women, who went to the hostel Sunday, said they would not stay there, and returned to the old shelter. They said male residents of the hostel were harass- ing them, and they were also unhappy with the rehiring of a woman who was dismissed from the shelter staff two weeks ago following staff protests and manage- ment dissatisfaction with her work. Fourteen of the women who have been staying at the shelter signed a letter to government officials asking for more suitable shelter arrangements.
