Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta The Herald" Business Prices down in light trade TORONTO (CP) Prices on the Toronto stock market moved fractionally lower in light mid-morning trading to- day. Ford car price hike approved WASHINGTON (AP) -The United States government gave Ford Motor Co. approval Monday to raise prices on some 1974 car models even more than was announced last week. A cost-of-living council spokesman said the council sent Ford a letter approving a decision to'make some equipment, that formerly was optional, standard on 1974 models. The spokesman argued against concluding that the changes constitute an increase in price, saying the formerly optional equipment will cost about 20-per-cent less when made standard. However, the spokesman acknowledged that the move will increase prices to customers who otherwise would have decided against buying the optional equipment. The council approved on Friday an average .increase of per model for Ford to offset the cost of government- mandated safety and en- vironmental features But there was no announce- ment that the council also was sanctioning price increases to reflect the standardizing of formerly optional equipment. When asked about this Mon- day, the spokesman could not say how much ol an additional increase these changes would bring or exactly what changes were involved The Wall Street Journal re- ported the increase amounted to per car. which, when combined with the increase for safety and environmental features, would mean an over- all increase of about per model, or approximately three per cent. However, the features will not be obtainable on all models They were reported to include carpeting, conceal- ed windshield wipers and cer- tain exterior and interior lux- ury improvements It was not known whether the other three auto-makers would make similar moves to standardize formerly optional equipment. The industrial index, consid- ered the major indicator of market trend, fell .13 to 215.96, golds 1.17 to 269.78. base metals .23 to 101.91 and western oils .91 to 252.94.

NEW YORK (API Concern over rising interest rates and tighter money push- ed stock market prices lower today. The Dow Jones average of 30 industrials at noon was down 4.59 to 881.17, after a 13- point drop over the previous two trading sessions. Declines led advances on the New York Stock Exchange by 4-to-3. Arabia dissatisfied with share of concerns New York Times Service BEIRUT, Lebanon Re- cent action giving Iran and Libya majority control in oil companies operating there has made Saudi Arabia dis- satisfied with her 25 per cent participation in American oil concerns in that nation, ac- cording to a highly placed oil source The change of attitude by Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil exporter, has been foreshadowed by the decision of Kuwait, another major Per- sian Gulf producer, to reject as insufficient the 25 per cent share of ownership offered by the western companies. This suggests that the major western oil companies are facing a significant escalation of demand for control over oil resources by Arab governments that only a year ago settled for 25 per cent par- ticipation, rising to a 51 per cent majority control only in 1982. In addition, the western companies are now being pressed sharply to raise the prices agreed upon last December at which they would purchase most of the host country's 25 per cent share of oil produced under the participation agreements. Ahmed Zaki Yamani. Saudi Arabia's minister of petroleum, will be in New York this week for a conference on buy-back price increases with the American oil companies that are partners in the Arabian- American Oil Co. Yamani negotiated last year the participation agreement for Saudi Arabia, as well as for Kuwait, Abu Dhabi. Qatar and Iraq. Subsequently, the agree- ment was ratified and applied by Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Qatar, but Kuwait has not been able to obtain the approval of its national assembly for the deal in its present form, and Iraq has not implemented the agreement in the Basra holding of the Iraq Petroleum Co., a western oil company consortium. Wednesday, September 12, 1973 THE LETHBRiDGE HERALD 23 Stocks Toronto industrials CANADIAN IMPERIAL BANK OF COMMERCE China medical system lauded MONCTON, N.B. (CP) Dr. Peter J. Banks, of Vic- toria, president of the Cana- dian Medical Association, said Tuesday he was impress- ed by the Chinese approach to the medical profession and believed that a similar system would be beneficial in Canada. Dr. Banks told the New Brunswick Medical Society the Chinese physicians place working for themselves, their families and their standard of living last in a system of priorities headed by working for their patients and the ideal of the new China. A member of a group of phy- sicians who recently toured China. Dr. Banks said he was impressed by the country's enthusiasm of working for an ideal and not for material re- ward. He told the annual meeting of the provincial association he had also been impressed by physical fitness standards in China and the methods of achieving such standards, par- ticularly in schools. He said children in China are happier than those in Canada because they know what they have to do and are disciplined to do it In Canada, "we teach our children that they have rights and not duties." A minimum of five acu- puncture clinics could be set up in Canada, each with two Chinese accupuncturists working with their Western counterparts to ensure proper evaluation of the treatment under controlled conditions. "The worst thing that could happen in Canada is that acu- puncture should fall into the hands of Charlatans who would have ample oppor- tunity to enrich themselves at the cost of turning their patients into pin cushions." Electrical group advised to meet escalating costs PARK TILFORD APPOINTMENT Mr H D Ryan, National Sales Manager of Park Tilford Distilleries Lid ,is pleased toan nounceiheappointmentof Mr B A Nelson as General Sales Manager for Western Canada Mr Nelson, who has many years of sales experience with the company, will be respons- ible for directing and co- ordinating the sales of Park Tilford liquors and Henkes brand liqueurs in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskat- chewan, Manitoba, the Yukon and Northwest Territories. PARK IAI 9 j i. B.A NELSON HALIFAX (CPi The president of the Canadian Electrical Association acknowledges concern for the "energy crisis" in North America but contends that utilities and manufacturers must first direct themselves to the inflationary trend of the economy. Kenneth W. McGrail of Halifax told an association meeting that every effort must be made to meet the es- calating costs which con- sumers must ultimately bear. The general public had to be assured that electrical utilities are fully prepared to meet their obligations for TV cigar ad ban approved WASHINGTON (Reuter) The House of Representatives has completed United States congressional action on a measure banning television advertising of little cigars The House sent the bill to President Nixon for his signa- ture. The measure would prohibit advertising of little cigars, roughly the size of cigarettes, over radio and television within 30 days after Nixon signs the legislation H. R. Gross (Rep. Iowa) said that beer, which might be injurious in large quantities, is still advertised on TV. He complained there is too much regulation of the in- dividual and fears that Congress might even find that women's sandals, snuff and even contraceptives might be injurious to health. Cigarettes are already banned from TV commer- cials, but the little cigars, which resemble cigarettes ex- cept that (hoy are rolled in tobacco, have been ad- vertised. sustaining the constant im- provement in working and liv- ing conditions. "Simultaneously, the Cana- dian Electrical Association must share the concerns of sincere individuals and groups who are troubled about the quality of living, ecological balances and the deleterious effects of pollution." Mr. McGrail. who is vice- president and assistant general manager of Nova Scotia Power Corp., said it appears that some people have a poor opinion of utilities and do so because they are un- aware of "our efforts to protect the environment." He expressed regrets that some individuals and groups "are convinced that any prog- ress by the electrical industry automatically spells the upset ol ecological balances." "No one can be more con- sciously aware than those who must daily see, monitor and measure the world around Mr. McGrail said. While the terms "ecology" and "environment" had mov- ed into the public usage in the last 10 to 12 years, they have been part of utilities vocabulary for decades, he said I'tilities have been respon- sible for millions of dollars in pollution control equipment and for choosing the "least obtrusive route" for transmis- sion lines. "We are responsible for pre- paring the conditions which will exist years from now and we must give consideration to the costs that must be pass- ed along to consumers or the p u b 11 c treasury." Mr. McGrail said. "Without doubt, we have a most difficult responsibility." Heel CuIn res WINNIPEG (CP) Live beef futures close Tuesday. Sept 51 40A. Nov 51.85A. Jan 51 75A: Mar 51.0013.

Standard Oil agrees to demand LOS ANGELES (AP) Standard Oil Co. of California has agreed to a demand by Jewish organizations that it distribute its clarified stance on the Mideast situation to the firm's stockholder and employees. Standard officials said Mon- day the revised statements are being mailed to stockholders with quarterly dividend checks. The San Francisco-based oil company drew criticism from Jewish groups when it sent a letter to stockholders and em- ployees urging them to sup- port "the aspirations of the Arab people." Jewish groups organized a boycott of Standard products to protest the letter, and they succeeded in persuading more than 4.000 Standard customers to tear up their Standard credit cards. The second letter is a copy of an Aug. 6 letter from Stan- dard board Chairman Otto Miller to Richard Kaplan, president of the Jewish Com- munity Relations Council of San Francisco. In a letter. Miller denied that Standard advocated es- tablishment of peace in the Middle East "without regard to the existence of Israel or its legitimate interests." A Standard spokesman said that the letter was written to "clarify and dispel any con- cern" about Standard's Mid- dle East position. Alberta solution outlined EDMONTON (CP) Four ways to help people on fixed or limited incomes meet ris- ing food costs were outlined today by Bob Dowling, Alber- ta's minister of consumer af- fairs. The province's four-pronged program was presented to the federal food prices review board, which is meeting in Ot- tawa with consumer group and government represen- tatives. Mr. Dowling said Alberta asked provincial-governments to review existing limits on earnings by welfare recipients a move which would assist people receiving social allowances to supplement their food budgets. The province also called for increased vegetable produc- tion in Canada, a comprehen- sive program in nutrition education and nation-wide ex- pansion of food-at-school programs for elementary school children (Supplied Richardson Securities of Canada 1 1 Tel 40 25 Trac 40 25 1 Acme 12 Advocate Asb 1 35 Tel 50 00 Burns 1550 Akaitcho Forest 21 75 M Bralorne 1 Sugar 20 75 iipVI jf Broulan Valley Ind 35 75 J Bethlehem 1500 f m 1 Bovis 2 Ind 1012'; 1 Bruribwick 4 Brew 4 60 f Can NW Land 8 J Canada Tung 2 e'oo j i Cassiar Power 23 00 _dMHu 1 Central Pat Cred 2 20 1 Chtrno 1 Gas 10 75 1 Conwest 4 Indus 15 25 1 Cons Rambler 3 Marconi 3 75 1 Com Lake Vickers 16 75 Cochenour .71 Ciaigmont 7 BHmHa Dickenson Mines nro T? 75 vCMBHiH I Denison Mines Batnuist 26.87'?
