Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, October 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 11 Brokerage firms want rate hike TORONTO (CP) The Toronto Stock Exchange has asked the Ontario Securities Commission to reconvene a hearing into rising brokerage rates. In a note to its members, the TSE board of governors said the majority of members have indicated through a questionnaire that they want the board to press for a rate increase. At a July hearing the TSE failed to get approval for a proposal calling for higher commissions on the trades it makes for customers. The commission has set the new hearings for Oct. 30, 31 and Nov. 1. The exchange will present the proposals suggested by its members including a flat across the board surcharge on commissions plus various lower limits for the sur- charge. They will also ask to experi- ment with a reduced turn around commission, now be- ing examined by the ex- change. The TSE feels brokers need increased rates to stay finan- cially healthy. Chrysler Corporation sales up DETROIT (AP) Chrysler Corp., first of the United States auto firms to make its third-quarter finances public, reported Tuesday its worldwide sales were up over a year ago but that the firm still lost money. It reported sales for the three months totalled billion, an increase over the billion reported in the comparable period a year ago. Chairman Lynn Townsend said Chrysler incurred a net loss of million, or 15 cents a share, compared with a loss of million or 34 cents a share in the third period of 1973. On a nine-months basis, Chrysler said its new car sales in the United States totalled down 18 per cent from the record of in the opening nine months a year ago. Of over all industry phases for the nine months, Town- send said "For the first nine months of the year, inflation, tight money and consumer fears of a recession held total automobile sales in the U.S. to units, down 21 per cent below the record level of 1973." Townsend said that on a nine-months basis, Chrysler earned million, or 38 cents a share on sales of billion. The earnings were well below 1973's opening nine months in which Chrysler earned million, a share, on worldwide sales of billion. He said the lower return re- flected "a combination of de- creased unit sales, inadequate price increases and increased costs which have persisted throughout the industry dur- ing 1974.
