Bank economist predicts '75 economy 'slowdown A senior banking economist predicted Tuesday that there will be a "clearcut slowdown" of the Canadian economy in 1975. Forrest Rogers, economic adviser with the Bank of Nova Scotia, said the economy's rate of growth will drop to around two per cent next year, down from an expected .rate of 4.5 per cent this year. "I am now looking for'more of a clear cut slowdown than many other Canadian analysts appear to expect, and I re- main seriously concerned about how satisfactorily we shall deal with either our inflation problem or the world oil problem." He told a construction mar- keting seminar that a two-per- cent rate of growth in 1975 "would be substantially below the country's underlying potential growth rate." Another banking economist, Dr. G. E. Angevine, of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, said the 1975 growth rate would drop to around three per cent, with the present slowdown continu- ing until the middle of the year before improving in the last half. "Assuming that the econo- mies of our major trading partners, including the United States, resume reasonable rates of growth in the second ihalf of 1975, the over-all product of the Canadian economy will probably ex- pand by some three per cent." GOOD MOMENTUM In another estimate made earlier Tuesday in Calgary, Jack Toten, Bank of Montreal vice-president of planning and economics, said Canada's economy will have "good forward momentum" with a growth rate of 3.5 to four per cent during 1975. Mr. Rogers reminded his Toronto audience that there Interest rate cut seen next year LONDON, Ont. senior official of the Royal Bank of Canada predicted Tuesday that interest rates in Canada will come down at least two percentage points and that the economy may ex- perience real growth of three or four-per cent in 1975. W. Douglas M. Gardiner, deputy chairman and ex- ecutive vice-president, said in an interview that the prime interest rate in the United States is expected to drop to 10 Market phone WINNIPEG (CP) Livestock producers now can get up-to-date information on prices at selected markets throughout Canada from a telephone information ser- vice, it was announced Tuesday.

Canada's prime interest rate is 11% per cent. Since July, the prime interest rate in Canada has held steadily at 11 Vi pfer cent, but banks quote this figure to only their best corporate borrowers. Mr. Gardiner was op- timistic about Canada's economic future. "We can't always have a he said. "Wages are good and unemployment is at a reasonable level. We're not in a recession." Mr. Gardiner was here to speak to the Chamber of Commerce.

"It seems rather foolish in my view to attach too much significance to precise number or scenarios for the business trend of Mr. Rogers said. It was more important to watch how closely Canada can cool inflation and how the world community copes with its trad.e and payment problems. There, was general agree- ment that the weaker parts of the economy will be the foreign trade and housing. LAB ATT S ALBERTA BREWERY Mr. J. J. (Jim) Hanson Mr. D. G.
