Ford reports record sales DETROIT (AP) Ford Motor Co. has joined General Motors Corp. and Chrysler Corp. in reporting record sales for the third quarter of this year.

Instant coffee firms cleared in ads case OTTAWA (CP) Charges ol false advertising against three instant coffee producers were thrown out in provincial crimi- nal court Thursday. Nestle (Canada) Ltd., General Foods Ltd. and Standard Brands Ltd. were accused in re- lation to labels reading "10 cents off" and "20 cents off" attached to jars of instant cof- fee sold in the Ottawa region in 1969 and 1970. The charges were laid by the federal department of consumer and corporate affairs. The Crown alleged that the libels were misleading since prices fluctuated up and down over the time the labels ap- peared on the jars. Judge Robert Mutton noted that the section of the Combines Investigation Act under which charges were laid deals with "publishing" of advertisements. He said it would be stretching imagination too far to say that a manufacturer who affixes such a label to a jar and then sells it to a wholesaler is "pub- lishing an advertisement." OPIUM FOUND A ton of opium valued at million was fished out of the Mediterranean Sea near Ala- mein, where it apparently was dumped by smugglers who planned to retrieve it later. Looking for a home?

"The government has the bankroll and it's certainly capa- ble of monopolizing John Stewart, president of Road Runners service, said in an in- terview today. "They're wasting millions of dollars now and they can waste millions more putting me and others like me out of business, We can't fight them." Postmaster-Genneral Jean- Pierre Ccte announced the new pick-up service in Regina Wednesday night. He gave no Idea what it will cost and a post office official said plans are so vague an estimate is impossi- ble. Mr. Cote told the Canadian Postmasters Association i t would be "a premium service at a premium cost, designed to provide reliability and speed in transmission." A postal official here said the service will be aimed mainly at firms desiring deliveries at a guaranteed time on a regular basis within the city or to other centres. EDMONTON (CP) Alber- ta will ask for a one-year delay in the federal government's proposed tax reform bill, Pre- mier Peter Lougheed said Thursday. In his first public speech as premier, Mr. Lougheed told the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association the province will get little benefit from the tax reforms; less than any other province. "We ask for a one-year delay so that the inequities can be sorted out and he told 600 persons attending a luncheon at the association's 65th annual convention, i However, Mr. Lougheed said, Alberta may be forced to ac- cept the income tax bill with all its inequities to avoid the expense of collecting its own income tax. The premier said he will at- tend a meeting of finance min- isters in Ottawa Nov. 1-2 and a meeting between the 10 pre- miers and Prime Minister Tru- deau in Ottawa Nov. 15-17. UNFAIR PRACTICE He said he will ask the fed- eral government to exclude Al- berta's oil and gas revenues a diminishing asset, in deter- mining the province's position it the country's equalization tamula. It was unfair to use this non- recurring revenue to artificial- ly bolster the econnmy of areas where the growth poten- tial is lower. Alberta could no longer de- pend on the sale of petroleum and natural gas leases to help meet its financial needs. It had become a province like all the others; dependent on income tax revenues. Mr. Lougheed said Alberta also is becoming "increasingly disturbed over the apparent neglect of our needs by nation- al transportation firms and fed- eral policies which tend to pro- mote such neglect." He said the province nray be forced to accent UK proposed income tax reforms to receive benefits from federal provin- cial fiscal arrangements. The current arrangements, which end next March, arc being re- negotiated. "The result of these negotia- tions will have a marked bear- ing on our future ability to work with you to provide need- ed services to our citizens." Mr. Lougheed hopes to de- velop some way of municipal participation in joint federal- provincial programs so that lo- cal government views are ta- ken into consideration before programs are formed. MORE AND MORE ALBERTANS ARE JOINING THE LIGHT BRIGADE Cades stay at Veruon OTTAWA (CP) Cadet traning at Vernon, B.C. will continue for some years, Da- fence Minister Donald Macdon- ald said here. He added in a Commons reply to William Skereyko (PC- Edmonton East) that part of the military camp there will be used as a community college when not needed for cadet pur- poses.
