BREWED RIGHT HERE IN ALBERTA, O'KEEFE BREWING COMPANY LIMITED Canada Pleased With U.S. Ruling WASHINGTON (CP) The United States tariff commission reported yesterday that two controversial customs duty ex- emptions which benefit Cana- dian and other foreign manu- facturers should, in effect, be allowed to stand despite pro- tests from organized American labor and despite surging im- ports. The Canadian embassy here declined to comment officially on the report but an official de- scribed it as an "encouraging development in relations be- tween Canada and tne U.S. in the trade sector." However, a spokesman lor the powerful AFL-CIO, which has pressed for repeal of the exemp- tions said the labor organization will continue its fight in Con. gress, where it has found sup- port in the past from both la- bor-oriented and protectionist representatives and senators. Approximately million worth of goods entered the U.S. from Canada under the terms of the two exemptions in 1969, out of a total from all countries cf million. LARGEST EXPORTER Canada was the second larg- est exporter under the exemp. tions, after West Germany, but may have been the chief benefi- ciary since its exports generally contained larger proportions of exempt material than the Ger- man exports. The tariff commission's re- was made to President lixon. There was no immediate com- ment from either the tariff com. mission or the White House on what action, if any, the presi- dent now is likely to take. Of the two exemptions, the more important 'allows compo- lent parts made in the U.S. to le sent abroad for assembly or ncorporation into larger units, liese can be re-imported to the J.S. without customs charges m the U.S.-made portion. The :otal value of imports under this >ection in 1969 was mil. lion. For Canada, this exemption involves snch items .as in- lustrial tractors, civilian air- raft, air conditioners, office machines and a wide range of other goods valued in 1969 at million, on which million in duty was saved. The second exemption covers articles made from base metals which are partially procesed Lion Numbers Fall MORGES, Switzerland (Reu- ters) The number of Asiatic lions living in the wild fell last year to 150 from 175 in the for- est of Gir in the Indian state of Gujarat, their only habitat, the World Wildlife Fund said here. outside the U.S. and returned here for further processing. Of a total of million in imports from all countries under this section last year, Canada accounted for' half, or million, of. which million was duty free: Canada's share involved mainly transportation equipment, industrial machin- ery and processed aluminum. The-commlssion's report said repeal of the exemptions would affect adversely the ,S. balance of trade by reduc- ing exports of material for proc- essing. It also said It would be un- likely that more jobs would be created in the U.S., and that such action would likely result in increased imports, since ex- empted goods would probably be replaced by goods mado wholly abroad.
