Oldsmobile. attributes much of the increase to changes that have been made in autos. He says it is not caused by in- llation. which, he says, has hit items other than cars to a much larger extent The dealers report that the price tag attached in Lethbridge depends to a large extent on the manufacturers' suggested retail price and this price is not known until the automobiles arrive in the city from the major corporations, including Chrysler, Ford and General Motors Jacob Harms, sales manager of King Chrysler Dodge, said complete price lists will not be available until the cars go on sale Sept. 26, but he said "I expect they (automobiles) will probably go up in price, but I don't know how much." While two dealers of North American models expect an increase two others which handle Japanese models ex- pect no change in the price ol their cars this year. "At this stage of the game we don't know." said Fred Story, sales manager ol Toyota Travel Centre "But I would expect we will hold the line on all models He said this would depend on the dollar maintaining its cur- rent value in relation to the Japanese ven Casey Vandenbrink. presi- dent oi Lethbridge Foreign Car does not expect a price in- crease barring a devaluation in Japanese currency and changes in design of the basic- unit The two firms will display the 1974 models during Oc- tober and in early November Canadians will continue to pay more than Americans for cars according to John Baker, president oi General Motors ol Canada Ltd Oshawa. Mr Baker has said there could be a small decrease in the 5 to 7 per cent price spread between models sold at a wholesale level in Canada and the U S The difference exists in spite of integrated operations ol the auto in- dustry in the two countries But Canadians pay an ad- ditional 12 per cent federal ex- cise tax on each car purchase. R ega rd1ess of the difference, however. Mr. Baker indicated prices for 1974 models are going to rise, but to what extent will depend on labor negotiations now un- derway These increases will come in two stages.

City hospital strike looms Technical staff of both Lethbridge hospitals could take strike action in a disoute with the Alberta Hospital's Association, a spokesman for the Health Sciences Associa- tion of Alberta said Thursday HSAA members have voted overwhelmingly to reject a proposal to accept a concilia- tion board recommendation. "The vote points out the fact that persons working in the medical technologies Held, who are required to have a high calibre of training are sick and tired of being second class citizens in the Held." HSAA representatives said in a prepared statement. Local representative Bill Nykiioruk 'and HSAA Ex- ecutive Director George Hall said further negotiations may be possible with the AHA despite rejection of the award. "However, il this fails we are left with the alternative of a strike vote." Employees affected in the Lethbridge Municipal voted 22 to 2 against the proposal and St. Michael's voted 12 to 2 against. They include x-ray technologists, psychiatric nurses, dietary technicians, lab technologists and inhala- tion therapy technologists. "As responsible people, having the care of patients at heart, we have been very reluctant to use a strike avenue as a means of gaining a reasonable living standard. "But it may be the only alternative left to us." the statement said. The HSAA bargaining com- mittee had recommended the conciliation award be accepted It will not be known whether the HSAA and AHA will renegotiate the award or move to a strike vote until all hospitals involved in the provincial negotiations have voted on the award. Mr. Nvkitoruk said. Double-pricing policy not prevented by law There is no legal way to pre- vent retailers double-pricing, an Alberta consumer affairs officer said Thursday. George Blochert said in a telephone interview from Calgary that retailers chang- ing prices on old stock are breaking "no particular law." He said that most concerns have ceased the practice since consumer complaints last month The number of com- plaints coming to the Calgary office have dimished. he said.

Mr. Blochert said He said he had held discussions with chain otlicials bui nothing had come o! them so tar Those officials have either refused comment or remained unavailable for comment since a Herald survey Tues- day revealed the chain was still raising prices on old stock Packages of bacon in ciH stores run by the chain were costing 3. an increase ol as much as B8 cents marked on the same package Meanwhile, a letter from Consumer Affairs Minister Bob Dowling was on its way to retailers mentioned in com- plaints to the department A spokesman for the depart- ment also said in a telephone interview from Edmonton that a public statement of the province's concern was in the draft stage Certified Dental Mechanic CLIFF BLACK.
