Mich. General Motors official has defended the auto-maker's catalytic converts, saying the proposed anti-pollution system has been thoroughly tested. Robert Sempel said researchers critical of sul- phate and sulphuric acid emissions from the devices have been using devices more primitive than the unit GM has developed. A report by the environmen- tal pollution agency and the department of health, educa- tion and welfare says sulphate emissions from the devices may pose health problems in areas of traffic congestion. The federal study also alleg- ed the devices may produce sulphuric acid emissions Sempel, special assistant to GM president Edward Cole, said he's confident the GM unit does not emit a dangerous level of either sulphate or sul- phuric acid. "We don't have any reser- vations about our Sempel said. "We think our research is pretty strong on it and we're convinced we've covered all the bases."

Shortages were found for accountants, experienced plant engineers, intermediate sales engineers, and maintenance engineers Several hundred engineers and designers will be required by the Alberta oil sands proj- ects, the council reported. A strong demand exists for com- puter programmers, systems analysts and chemical sales engineers. The report showed that re- cent university graduates have improved opportunities, with more openings for business administration, com- merce and engineering But arts and natural sciences graduates and ad- vanced level engineers and scientists are expected to have more trouble finding jobs, the report says. Canada is graduating proportionately engineers and scientists with master's and Ph D degrees than the United States, it added. Chicago grain CHICAGO (AP) Soybean futures declined 20 cents for the fifth straight day on the Board of Trade Thursday Wheat futures were UD the 20-cent limit around midsession. but gave way a few pennies under late profit- taking. Corn prices were irregular, but oats were up around cents. Soybean meal lost around a ton and soybean oil was down some 50 points. Commodities in the soybean complex were under selling pressure from the opening bell, as they have been the last five sessions The selling eas- ed somewhat and buyers began to come forward rather cautiously after the opening A strong factor in the selling was the continued good weather over most of the Midwest and a scarcity of a good buying element Wheat prices were irregular until it became known that the government expects a lower carry over next year than the trade had expected This brought in new buying and prices quickly rose to the lim- its. Prices remained above the previous closes until just before the final bell when profit-taking trimmed some of the gains in the two pits. At the close, soybeans were down as much as 20 bushel, November 5 49. wheat 10 to 18 higher. December 437. corn unchanged to 1V2 higher. December 2.45Vz and oats gained about 1'z December 1.24.
