BIG HELP NEW YORK (AP) A cut in the prune lending rate by sev- eral major United States banks today helped the stock market recoup some of its earlier losses. Trade was active. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrial stocks, which had been off 4 points before the banks' announcement, was off only 0.51 at 867.92 by noon. The banks, led by New York's Morgan Guaranty Trust Co., cut to 5% per cent from six per cent the interest they charge their most creditworthy borrow- ers. Easier credit is considered a market stimulant because it promotes business and coa- sumer spending, they noted. Gainers included airlines, building materials, and air- crafts. Farm implements were lower. Scott Paper was off 1% at The company reduced its dividend by half. The Associated Press 60-stock average was off .5 at 318.5. Among Canadians, Hudson Bay was up at and Dome at Mclntyre was off at and Inco Vs at On the American exchange, Javelin was up at and Brascan Vs at Scurry was off H at Lambert predicts 1972 good year EDMONTON (CP) Unem- ployment will be hard to re- duce but 1972 should be a good year for the Canadian econ- omy, Allan T. Lambert, presi- dent of the Toronto Dominion Bank, says. It will probably be late 1973 or early 1974 before the econ- omy expanded sufficiently to reduce unemployment to an ac- ceptable level, Mr. Lambert told a news conference. It would probably be late 1972 before unemployment fell below six per cent. Mr. Lambert said an improv- ing American economy and the impact of recent federal government measures will re- sult in an upswing in the Cana- dian economy. POSITIVE IMPACT The billion dollars injected into the economy by Finance Minister Edgar Benson through tax reductions and public works programs should have a posi- tive impact. Mr. Lambert said Alberta should increase the price of nat- ural gas exports to the United States. Canada should not be selling its limited natural sources at prices lower than the market would bear. Mr. Lambert said that if President Nixon's economic pol- icies succeed, the Canadian government should think ser- iously about applying a wage- price freeze early next year. The Canadian economy was ex- posed completely to the Ameri- can economy and would be ser- iously damaged if its prices got to far out of line with U.S. prices. Mr. Lambert was in the city to install William C. Mclntosh as general manager of the bank's Alberta division. Mr. Mclntosh, formerly manager of Tronto Dominion's Calgary operation, succeeds F. G. Mc- Dowell, who has been promoted to deputy chief general man- ager of credit in Toronto. Payments figure is incorrect OTTAWA (CP) A Canadar Poland agreement settling claims of Canadian citizens against the Polish government involves Polish payments of million as previously reported. An external affairs spokes- man said Monday the figure of million in a department news release Friday is incorrect comma should have been a decimal. The claims arise from the post-war nationalization pro- gram of the Polish government. Potato futures WINNIPEG (CP) Maritime potato futures close Tuesday.

Jttawa business report By PAUL JACKSON Herald's Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The federal gov- ernment's new Competition Act akes a strong stand on mislead- ing advertising, meaningless and deceptive warranties and unethical pyramid selling. Some people would say too strong a stand. Particularly the iromoters involved in these ireas. And long before the Act becomes law we can expect a rigorous lobby aimed at getting .he Act cooled down. Progressive Conservative Op- position Leader Robert Stan- ield has said that the Act will lampen Canadian initiative. He peaks of policies for business hat would create an incentive society. business Review Hog sale EDMONTON (CP) Prices to 11 a.m. Wednesday supplier by the Alberta Hog Producers Marketing Board.

At the same lime it will clamp down on unfair, un- ethical and dishonest dealings to the market place. Mr. Basford is one of the brightest lights hi Prime Minis- ter Trudcau's government. Of that there is no doubt. So when he says the reputation of legi- timate business will be en- hanced b. the Act we have to give some credence to his claims. What should concern Mr. Bas- ford, businessmen and consum- ers is that his department tends to be much more active in chas- ing small fly-by-night operators than tackling huge free trade Steel industry in doldrums By IRVING C. WHYNOT Canadian Press Business Editor The Canadian steel industry ilayed host last week to an in- ernational gathering of steel- makers at a time when the in- dustry is in a worldwide slump. The occasion was the fourth annual conference in Toronto of .he International Iron and Steel Institute, bringing together about 250 top executives of the major steel companies from 27 non-communist countries. All told, institute members >roduee about 60 per cent of the world's steel. But steel produc- tion has been lagging this year, giving rise to some concern ibout the short-term future of the industry- Charles Baker- secretary gen- eral of the institute, took note of his concern in his report when le termed the situation one of 'extraordinary He referred to the "rather pirn and uneasy atmosphere" jut said the industry will emerge from its hough he couldn't predict when. Yoshihiro Inayama, head of J a p an's giant Nippon Steel Corp., said the industry is going through a cycle and steelmen should "not lose heart over what is only a temporary drop." Steel production has dropped In many countries so far this year, the total for the first seven months showing a de- crease from the same period of 1970. In an industry that normal- ly expects an increase of about six per cent each year this is cause for worry. Canada's small but vital steel industry has felt the same prob- lems. On a world scale, Can- ada's position is out only about two per cent of the world production. Capacity of Canada's mills is IS.5 million tons a year, but this will be increased to 17.5 million tons when facilities now under construction are completed. Once the eighth largest steel- maker in the world, Canada now has slumped to 12th al- though production has been growing at an average annual rate of close to seven per cent. The major firms estimate that they will have to invest up to billion dollars by the end of the decade if they are to meet the projected growth in con- sumption. Of immediate concern is the competition from imports, espe- cially from Japan. V. W- Scully, chairman of Steel Co- oi Canada Ltd., told the institute that Canadian steel capacity is roughly equal to consumption. Because of geog- raphy, the cost of making Cana- dian steel is higher than in most competing it possible for foreign steel to upset the Canadian industry. restricting combines. At the same time the department will go after reputable business con- cerns such as cigarette man- ufacturers who have erred slightly if at all in advertising campaigns while ignoring the real abuses of fair marketing that even big corporations sometimes commit. Tlie policy here seems to be that if you lose you are quite likely to get it back. If you lose you can say goodbye to it forever. Despite this, the Competition Act is an impressive hunk of legislation. Most of the provi- sions hi it are needed and long overdue. Mr. Basford says it is not his government's inten- tion to use the act to regulate ,the market place, rather to in- tervene in it when abuses deem it necessary. Actual cases of false adver- tising, deceptive warranties that protect the seller more than the buyer, referral selling, bait-and-switch techniques and unethical pyramid selling do de- mand strong and rapid action. Some people have said that itrong stands on pyramid sell- ing systems pose a threat to legitimate multi-level selling or- ganizations such as Avon cos- metics and Amway household products. To this, Mr. Basford says nonsense.' Multi-level selling or- ganizations, which have made a real contribution to the market- place for consumers and sell- ers, have nothing to fear and everything to gain by the gov- ernment's intention to keep a close eye on the mystic pyra- mid promoters. Mr. Basford says many inno- cent people have been persuad- ed to lay out large sums of money to pyramid promoters in anticipation of quick gains only to be left poorer but wiser. The fact is many of them are no wiser. They are still easy bait for the next shady dealer who com.es along. Frankly, I don't believe the Competition Act is just another examp'e of the government put- ting the straijacket on busi- ness. Tough legislation is need- ed to protect the consumer and the legitimate businessman. But before the Art is re- introduced into the House of Commons early in the New Year, businessmen and busi- ness organizations should take a close look at it and make solid representations to the con- sumer affairs minister on points both good and bad. Because once the Act is passed they are going to have to live with it for a very long time.
