The main problem is how to effect change in an industry that is rapidly crossing national boundaries but still operating under national systems. Perhaps a worldwide linkup of stock exchanges providing a 24-hour market for investors may be the answer. But a whole new code of inter- national as well as national rules would have to be set up for such a system to work. Representatives of stock ex- changes in 19 countries met for three days here, and concluded after Wednesday's closing session: Adjust we must. The stock exchanges are members of the Federation Internationale des Bourses de Valeurs Inter- national Federation of Stock Exchanges. The Paris-based organiza- tion held its general assembly for the first time in the United States and elected as its new president, Pedro Rodriguez Ponga y Ruiz de Salazar, chairman of the Madrid Stock Exchange. He succeeds Friedrich Priess of West Ger- many. Chairman James Needham of the New York Stock Ex- change was elected vice- president. CANADIANS PRESENT Canada, which is a voting member of the federation, sent three delegates representing the Toronto Stock Exchange president, J. R. Kimber, and J. Christopher Barron and J. Peace Bunting. Kimber called the federa- tion a "significant group" and said Canada had an important part to play in it. The stock exchange presented a paper on automa- tion to the assembly, saying: "With significant inter- nationalization of securities markets only two to three years in the future, there are ,some important questions which could well be con- sidered now in order to avoid hasty action in the face of future stress." Questions specifically cited in the discussion included whether a security should be traded in different places at different times "or, to avoid market fragmentation and to ensure fair execution and maximum liquidity, should all orders for any given security be placed in a designated ex- change trading Te Canadian paper also touched on the provision of clearing facilities by ex- changes for settlement of international transactions between exchange members. STUDY REQUESTED In an interview, Kimber said the Toronto Stock Ex- change had been asked to do a study on automation of various exchanges. Many questions were raised in the discussion, he said, dealing with the more philosophical problems. For instance, he said, traders are used to dealing "eyeball to eyeball." What would happen if they were automated into private of- fices? Would it work? "We were asked to study the questions further and corne back with some Kimber said. Delegates to the assembly noted that the rapid growth of international business and fi- nance had posed new challenges for the industry and these challenges must be given the highest priority. A special group of experts was formed to study the crucial issues facing stock ex- changes. "Adjustment to these new conditions is an imperative step, taking the highest prior- the federation said. East oil talks start Wednesday KUWAIT (Reuter) Oil ministers from the Arab states will open their emergency meeting on oil as a weapon in the Middle East conflict Wednesday, not Tues- day as planned, it was an- nounced today. The new schedule was given by Dr. Ali Attiya, Libyan secretary-general of Oapec the Kuwaiti-based organiza- tion of Arab petroleum ex- porting countries. The Kuwaiti oil minister, Abdel-Rahman Al-Atiqi, said all the Arab producers will be represented at the meeting. The independent Kuwait newspaper Al-Seyasseh says measures will be discussed to halt oil shipments to the United States and any other country whose support for Israel can be confirmed. But this step would not be sufficient on its own, the paper says, because that Kuwait's exports to the U.S. constitute only two per cent of U.S. oil needs, while all Arab oil exports to the U.S. total only 18 per cent of consump- tion there. "Consequently, it is believ- ed the oil ministers will take a supplementary step by reduc- ing current production rates whereby oil exports to Japan and Europe will just satisfy their own needs without allow- ing re-exports of surplus oil to the the paper says. Halfway house topic Salvation Army plans for the establishment of a half- way centre will be explained to members of the John Howard Society at a monthly meeting Tuesday, said Dave Rodgers, executive-secretary of the society's board of direc- tors. The society passed a motion last May to investigate the possibility of setting up a half- way house or residential centre which would be used as temporary accommodation by former prisoners who have served their sentence.

Railway shut down VANCOUVER (CP) A British Columbia Railway spokesman said today the government-owned railway was shut down as its four shopcraft unions walked off the job after contract negotiations broke down. By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) The St. Lawrence Seaway Authority is changing helmsmen at a time when business is brisk but the financial outlook still is unsettled. The inland waterway handl- ed a record 53.6.million cargo tons last year and government officials have predicted 55 million tons will pass through this year. But, the authority still is saddled with a million capital debt and rising labor and maintenance costs while toll charges remain at 1959 levels. Dr. Pierre Camu, outgoing authority president, says he favors writing off huge interest charges on the capital debt. His successor has not been named. Shipping interests have Op- posed any toll increase since the government made public a report recommending a 27.5 per cent boost in tolls over five years. MINISTERS CHANGE The report was submitted in early 1971 and has been under study since. There also has been a change of transport de- partment ministers with Jean Marchand succeeding Don Jamieson last year. Shipping companies have argued that a big jump in tolls would seriously affect the economy, discouraging seaway traffic and hurting Canada in the world wheat market. Dr. Camu sees validity in this argument. "I was always afraid about how much traffic Submarine base to be mothballed KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) The last submarine to be bas- ed at the United States nava'l station here will be decom- missioned next week and the base will be mothballed early next year. "It's a sad feeling, the end of an said Lt.-Cmdr. Stuart Merriken, skipper of the submarine USS Amber- jack. "I hate to be the last one." The Amberjack, which saw Pacific duty in the Second World War, is one of a handful of diesel-powered subs left on the East Coast. "We are not only seeing the last of the subs in Key West; it's sort of the death knell for diesel said Rear Adm. J. H. Maurer, base com- mander. The other diesel subs are scheduled for decommission- ing as soon as the navy moves to an all-nuclear force. The 150-year-old base hous- ed navy personnel dur- ing the Second World War. It now has only a few hundred. During the First World War inventor Thomas Edison worked at the base to help develop depth charges used in antisubmarine warfare. The Momsen Lung, a submarine escape device named for its inventor, Lt. Charles Momsen, was perfected in the warm waters off the base. I might lose if I raised he said in a recent interview. Still, he had twice recom- mended "modest increases" to the cabinet but was turned down. The 50-year-old executive speaks from eight years ex- perience as seaway authority president years altogether as a member of the organization. He stepped down to become president of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters Oct. 1. Despite regular annual operating profits, the authori- ty winds up with a deficit because of the interest charges. INTEREST CAUSES LOSS The authority had an oper- ating surplus of million in 1972 but million in interest charges turned this into an over-all deficit of million. "You have to consider you will never be able to pay the interest so forget about Dr. Camu said. The United States already had lifted the financial burden from its St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corp. which operates two of the 15 locks on the international waterway. Dr. Camu does not favor the report's suggestion that Canada press the U.S. to assume a share of the costs of operating Canadian seaway facilities. "I'm very nationalistic on Dr. Camu said. "I prefer that Canadians operate and maintain what has been built and developed by Canadians." Dr. Camu said a toll increase is likely within five years even if the government writes off the interest on the capital debt because maintenance and labor costs are rising constantly. The seaway authority's last annual report backs him up. While income dropped to ttiillion in 1972 from mil- lion in 1971, expenses rose to million from million. Workers are near starvation COLOMBO (AP) Sri Lanka's plantation workers, mainly of Indian origin, are near starvation with just three ounces of food a day, the country's biggest trade union organization charged today. In an urgent letter to Plan- tation Minister Colvin De Silva, the secretary of the Ceylon Workers Congress, S. Sellasamy, said that these workers were virtually starv- ing since the tight rationing of rice, flour and sugar became effective Oct. 1. The union claims membership of more than estate workers. Sellasamy said plantation workers could not obtain sub- stitute foods and many were forced by hunger to stay away from work The pro-government Demo- cratic Workers Congress, also representing plantation work- ers, called for estate manage- ments to purchase and dis- tribute food to workers. :iohang-yps... with an electric Wet wash is a hang-up.
