Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 LETHBRIDQC HERALD TuMday, 17, 1974 U.S. egg imports curb lifted by government Industrial issues lead strong TSE price gain OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment has temporarily lifted restrictions on U.S. egg imports, the agriculture department announced Mon- day. Since U.S. prices currently are higher than those in Can- ada, the move will probably have little effect on consumer prices. The restrictions, imposed last May in an effort to protect domestic egg men against low-priced American imports, were removed because egg production in the U.S. has dropped, raising prices in that country. Under the May restrictions, eggs were only allowed into Canada under permits limiting the quantity to roughly the amount shipped in during previous years. The restrictions were im- posed under federal changes in the Import and Export Per- mits Act, which allows the government to block entry of a-.y food product that threatens to undercut domestic prices. Federal marketing experts said the curbs now can "safely" be removed because the U.S. egg futures market indicates continually rising prices in that country. As a result, they said, the Canadian Egg Marketing Agency can now go ahead and raise its price for eggs with no worries about U.S. com- petition. The restrictions, which still Reduce rate MONTREAL (CP) The Royal Bank of Canada Mon- day announced a reduction in its basic interest rate on U.S. dollar loans inside Canada to 13 from 13.5 per cent. apply to turkey imports, are determined under an elaborate formula based on prices here and in the U.S. They were imposed last May because the government said prices in the 24 and 25 cents a abnormally low. Although only a small portion of egg production in either country moves across the border, extremely low prices in the U.S. have a ten- dency to drag down domestic prices. The reason American prices have that effect is a theoretical one: A Canadian processor could enter the American market and buy up cheaper eggs if he wished. Few do however, because Canadian prices tend to follow those in the U.S. The restrictions could be reimposed quickly if the bot- tom suddenly fell out of the American market. Under the import formula imposed last May, Canada can block entry of U.S. eggs whenever domestic prices fall below a certain level. That level originally was set at 60 cents a dozen, based on Tires tested MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. (AP) The Consumer's Union said Monday that seven of nine Firestone 500 Steel Belt tires suffered tread separation during high-speed durability and treadlife tests. It said this Firestone model was the only one of 18 belted- bias and bias-ply tires from nine major manufacturers and suppliers that did not pass the test. All others were acceptable. M. C.

Weather conditions halt harvest CALGARY (CP) Cool, wet weather throughout Alberta last week brought harvesting to a halt for most of the week, the Alberta Wheat Pool reported Monday. Below freezing temp- eratures werw wide- spread in all crop districts ex- cept Medicine Hat Foremost and Brooks Lethbridge. More than an inch of moisture fell in north-central, northern and Peace River regions, the Pool said. Snow on Sept. 10 lodged crops at Lac La Biche-Boyle districts. Between two and four inches of snow fell from Lamont east to Vegreville and south to Riley. Crops in these areas were reported to be flattened. The Pool said that by the weekend, cutting was general throughout the province. About acres of wheat, 610.000 acres of barley and acres of rapeseed were swathed during the week. Last week, farmers combin- ed 6.6 million bushels of wheat, 7.7 million bushels of barley and bushels of rapeseed. So far this year in Alberta, 27 million bushels of wheat, 34 million bushels of barley and three million bushels of rapeseed have been put into storage.
