Oil price drop predicted by Think-Tank director MONTREAL (CP) Because he easily dealt with the prospects for mankind in 15 minutes, Hudson Institute founder Herman Kahn departed from a prepared half-hour speech to the Conference Board in Canada here to tackle oil prices and inflation. Hie prominent Think-Tank director said that oil prices will drop because oil- producing nations have not been able to form an effective cartel. Inflation will require some belt-tightening, but in the meantime a lot of its symp- toms can be knocked down by a broad indexing plan. Mr. Kahn predicted that world balance of payments deficits caused by higher oil prices in the coming decade will be nothing like the 1650 billion seen and feared by some observers. The real total will be more like billion: "There are ways to deal with he said. Recently, oil imports have far exceeded demand, with the excess going into storage. "If shipments continued at that rate, by the end of Oc- tober we would be filling bathtubs, ashtrays what gave way was the oil com- pany's refusing deliveries." Oil producing countries have been unable to agree on limiting production, he said. Under current conditions, they would develop excess capacity reaching 30 per cent "It means they will have terrible problems with oil, or let the price drop." Worker electrocuted EDMONTON (CP) Police today identified Daniel Hading. 44, of Edmonton as the Edmonton Power employee electrocuted Thursday when he apparently came into contact with a 600- volt line during an installation in a downtown hotel. Police said the worker was installing equipment in a third floor switch room at the Edmonton Plaza Hotel when the accident happened. CARD OF THANKS TRATCH Many thanks to all my relatives, friends and students for their get well wishes during my stay in hospital. Also a special thanks to my doctors and the staff of St Michael's Hospital. Ron Tratdi 3533-12 Living with inflation, he said, "is simply a lack of serious discussion." New ideas are needed to tackle the problem, Mr. Kahn said, and economists have been historically short on new ideas. So they have resisted indexing, or a program under which economic sectors would be automatically adjusted to inflation. If inflation in a given period was 10 per cent, wages, for in- stance, would go up by the same amount. "It (indexing) enables you to cure a lot of the symptoms. I am almost certain it is es- sential for getting out of the current situation." Britain, West Germany inflation fight best PARIS (Renter) West Germany and Bri- tain had the best records among major industrial countries in August in fighting inflation, statistics released today by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) show. Consumer prices showed no rise at all in West Germany and went up by only 0.1 per cent in Britain, said the figures which are based solely on information provided by the .countries themselves. Consumer prices in August went up one per cent and in Canada and 1.2 per cent in the U.S. In Britain's case, the 0.1-percent price rise compared with a jump of 0.9 per cent hi July. A cut in value added tax was a factor in the im- proved picture in Britain, economic observers believe. In other major OECD countries, prices rose 0.8 per cent in France, 2.3 per cent in Italy and one per cent in Japan. For the 24-nation OECD group as a whole, consumer prices rose an average of about 13.5 per cent in the 12 months up to August. West Germany had the best record of major countries during the 12- month period, with con- sumer prices rising 6.9 per cent Canada followed with 10.8 per cent, the United States figure was 1L2 per cent, France 14.5 per cent, Britain 16.9 per cent, Italy 20.4 per cent and Japan 25.4 per cent Vandals slow harvest Vandals have slowed harvesting on at least two farms near Barnwell by punching holes in tractor radiators, according to Taber RCMP. Corporal Maurice Marsh, of Taber RCMP said as a result of investigations several similar incidents have oc- curred throughout the summer. The most recent reports, he said, came from Robert Allen, whose farm is about three miles west of Barnwell. He told police vandals went into his field at night where two tractors were left and punched holes in the radiators. Norman Nakamura, whose farm is about two and a half miles sooth of the Allen farm, also reported vandals had punched boles in a radiator in a tractor left in his field. Both cases of vandalism are reported to have happened between 9 p.m. Oct 8 and 6 a.m. Oct 9. RCMP believe the damage may have been done with a tire iron. Damage to the tractors is difficult to determine, Cpl. Marsh said. If they can be repaired the cost would only be about f IS to but it would take all day to do the repair work. To replace toe radiators would cost about each. "That slows down the harvest costing much more. The 'down time' loss is hard to Cpl. Marsh said. He said the vandalism coupled with the rain today makes matters worse. "It's costing the farms tune and money." Cpl. Marsh said RCMP afe still investigating. MOOSE JAW, Labor Minister Gordon Snyder announced Thursday his ministry has decided to es- tablish a conciliation board in the dispute between the Moose Jaw Typographical Union and The Tunes-Herald. Letters have been sent from the minister to both parties requesting that they make an appointment to the concilia- tion board within seven days of receipt of the letter, as is specified in the regulations under the Trade Union Act. Mr. Snyder said that by tak- ing the initiative to establish a conciliation board, he is con- fident the two parties would make a genuine effort to par- ticipate seriously in board proceedings and effect a satisfactory settlement to the dispute. Earlier Thursday, Stan But- ler, publisher of The Times- Herald, said both the new- spaper and the typographical union, which represents com- posing room employees who are picketing the newspaper, have indicated they will accept the board. The board, to be composed of persons appointed by the two parties, could make recommendations for a settle- ment of the dispute, which the newspaper terms a strike and the union calls a lockout. The dispute concerns pay and the amount of overtime that composing room employees are required to work. Goal mine strike warning issued WASHINGTON (AP) The head of the United Mine Work- ers union accused the United States coal industry Thursday of refusing to negotiate and warned that a country-wide coal strike is likely to begin Nov. 12 unless the impasse is broken. UMW President Arnold Miller said the mine operators "rejected out of hand" the un- ion's contract proposals deal- ing with health and safety and other non-economic issues. He called the industry's counter- proposals "garbage." "Unless the BCOA assumes a willingness to negotiate in these critical contract areas, I must reluctantly report to the American people that a nationwide coal strike is likely to occur on Nov. Miller told a news conference. After the news conference, the BCOA issued a statement saying it had agreed to some health and safety proposals but would not go along with any demands that would infringe on its management rights. The BCOA said the union wants to take it upon itself to interpret and enforce federal health and safety laws and also to shut down a mine un- ilaterally. The union began contract negotiations with the Bituminous Coal Operators Association the in- dustry's bargaining arm, on Sept. 3. The current contract covering some UMW members who mine about 75 per cent of the country's coal expires Nov. 12. Miller said the union's 38- member bargaining council voted unanimously earlier in the day to direct his negotiating team to prepare for a strike if the industry refuses to change its position. The union chief charged that the industry is trying to force a strike and then demand governmental intervention in order to undermine the un- ion's bargaining power. "No doubt, an additional motivation for such a strategy is the clear knowledge that in the present seller's market in coal further scarcities brought on by a strike will only drive up the price of has risen 61 per cent in the past still Miller said. The Ford administration is preparing contingency plans to deal with the allocation of available coal supplies in the event of a walkout but Miller discounted this as having any effect on union strategy. Asked whether the union would obey a back-to-work or- der from President Ford un- der labor law, Miller sidestepped a direct answer. He said be doubts whether his men would work without a contract The labor law, if invoked by the president, would require the union to continue working through an 80-day cooling-off period. Industry bargainers have proposed that the mines be operated continuously seven days a week instead of the present five. Miller said the union has agreed to return to the bargaining table Monday and. expressed hope that the coal operators will reconsider their position "and agree to good-faith bargaining." lumbermen jobless VANCOUVER (CP) More than International Woodworkers of America members are unemployed in Canada and the United States, the union said here. Figures from a meeting of international officers in Portland, Ore., disclosed about unemployed in Western Canada, in Eastern Canada and another in the U.S., most of them in the Pacific Northwest. The IWA members have been hard hit by layoffs due to slumping lumber markets, partly because of a major cut- back in U.S. housing starts. About 60 per cent of British Columbia's exports normally go to the U.S. for housing. The IWA has a total membership of woodworkers on both sides of the border, but the majority are in Canada. The IWA's total layoffs for Western Canada are almost below the latest estimate of the forest companies, who say about workers are unemployed. Bridge results Wed. Afternoon D.B.C.
