Retail prices have gone up to 31 cents from 27 cents a pound. are expected to reach 35 cents for the cheapest brands by the end of (he year. Special- grade coffee may wind up sell- ing for as much as G6 cents a pound, industry people say. Brazilians drink coffee seven or eight times a day. Thus the extra money spent at the gro- cers is bound to affect family budgets. Brazil, the No. 1 coffee pro- ducer, has kept domestic prices at low levels for 13 years while selling coffee abroad" at market prices.. This was because the government, had more coffee on its hands than it knew what to do with. Bad weather in recent years and the growing demand for coffee overseas have reduced Brazil's stocks. The government determined that, subsidies no longer made economic sense, and it says all will end in De- cember. It now costs the gov- ernment about ?120 million a year to buy coffee from local growers and then sell it for al- most half price to roasters. Plan study of copper concentrates THA1L, B.C.

WASHINGTON (CP) Presi- dent Nguyen Van Thicu's triumph in Sunday's no-contest election in South Vietnam comes as n sort of empty vic- tory for the Saigon government and for United States policy there. According to the game plan, this election wa.s to have been a dramatic (liming point in Presi- dent Nixon's scheme to get the U.S. out of Southeast Asia. T h i e u r someone else- would be democratically elected and the South Vietnaoticse gov- ernment, thus emboldened by legitimacy, would take over the reins of power, gradually guid- ing the country out of its long dilemma. Thicu, who received only 35 per cent of (lie vote in a multi- candidate election four years ago, wanted desperately to be a majority president this time. But activities by him, or on his behalf, eventually elimi- nated all opposition either through legislative or court ac- tion or through withdrawal of disgruntled candidates. As the onlv contender in Sun- day's voting, he received 91.5 per cent of the votes cast. The Americans could lament that they had done their best to ensure an open and free elec- tion, and Thicu could boast that the endorsement amounted to a landslide vote of confidence in him. Nevertheless, the opposi- tion still had plenty of ammuni- tion to level at both these claims. Vice-President Nguyen Cao Ky, who withdrew from the presidential election campaign last month along with Gen. Duong Van Minh, have declared the Thieu administration a dic- tatorship and have limited success so or- ganize a protest movement against it. Although Sunday's vote was but a pale shadow of the type of campaign and election friends of South Vietnam had hoped for, it was not a complete loss. Thieu. it appears from (lie overwhelming election results, enjoys loyal support throughout much of the country. He had said he would resign if 50 per cent of those voting indi- cated their dissatisfaction with him by defacing their ballots. Only a relative handful did, ac- cording to election officials. And from the U.S. point of view, the big plus in Thieu's election is that stability in U.S.- Soulh Vietnam relations will be maintained. Had a new administration come to power, the whole politi- cal fabric of South Vietnam would have come unravelled.
