By ART JOHNSON Canadian Press Staff Writer Western oil issues pushed Canadian stock markets higher this week, providing an auspicious beginning for the final quarter of 1970. Tt was the third consecutive week that stock markets have moved higher. Much of the strength stemmed from good tidings about oil and natural gas, say analysts. One bullish factor was the modest relaxation of United States restrictions on crude oil imports from Canada, announced early in the week by the United States government. Another factor was the National Energy Board's decision to allow four of five Canadian applicants to export more natural gas to the U.S. Under pressure partially from these influences, the Toronto Stock Exchange's western oil index advanced 8.65 points to 195.53. The exchange's industrial index, a broad indicator of stock activity, rose 1.47 points to 167.26. On Wall Street, the Dow-Jones industrial average of key blue-chip stocks rose 4.39 points to 761.77. Analysts said the market held up well through the week. MARKET RECOVERS It dropped back Tuesday morning after the death of President Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt, but recovered almost all of its losses by late afternoon. At the Montreal and Canadian exchanges, the composite index was up 2.49 to 169.49. It was the third consecutive week at Toronto that both industrial and western oil indexes posted advances. Trading was light to moderate throughout the week. Among the biggest gainers on the Toronto market were TransCanada PipeLines and Westcoast Transmission, two of the four companies approved by WE'RE PROUD TO HAVE HIM Vegetable Industry In Danger CALGARY (CP) - Recom mendations of the federal committee on agriculture could seriously affect the vegetable industry in the province, the Alberta Fresh Vegetable Commission said here. "The report of the committee fails to recognize the existence of a vegetable industry in Alberta, other than potatoes," the commission said. A recommendation that trade restrictions be removed between Canada and the Unietd States "obviously is directed towards producers in Eastern Canada who are close to large urban centres in the United States." the National Energy Board to increase natural gas shipments to the U.S. TransC; .ada advanced 4Vb to $327s and Westcoast 2% to $221/2. Western oils as a group have put on a spectacular recovery performance during the last mx months. INDEX ADVANCES The Toronto exchange's western oil index has advanced about 86 points from L 1970 low of 108.14 which it touched May 26. In the past quarter alone, the index rose ah .Ait 65 points. Most of this advance, say analysts, was made on the strength of expectations of fuel shortages in the U.S. Perfon ance of stocks generally has not been as frenzied. The Toronto exchange's industrial index dropped to a low of 141.43 on May 27, and has advanced about 25 points since that time. Its rise in the past three months has been about 15 points. Volume at Toronto this week was 11.12 million shares, compared with 11.63 million hist week. On index, base metals were up 1.60 to 98.03 and golds 4.48 to 160.17. At the Montreal and Canadian exchanges, combined volume was 5.37 million shares, compared with 5.28 million last week. Gains outnumbered losses 183 to 153 with 96 unchanged. H. H. Smith Ltd.
