Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDGE HERAtD Thursday, September 23, 1971------- 1972 MERCURY COMET Merchant marine fleet termed uneconomical OTTAWA (CP) A Canadian deep-sea merchant marine would be economically worth- while under limited conditions, says a report submitted to the Canadian Transport Commis- sion. The 305-page report, released Wednesday, says siipership bulk carriers weighing more than deadweight tens and carrying coal, iron ore and crude oil could be operated to (he economic benefit of Canada. Oilier ships would be uneco- nomic or less beneficial. But government assistance would be essential to private operators. The study was earned out for the commission by a group of consulting companies. They wore asked to study the eco- nomic value of a Canadian deep-sea merchant marine from Orchestra opens season Oct. 6 OTTAWA (CP) The Na- tional Arts Centre Orchestra conducted by Mario Bernardi will open its third season Oct. 6 with 23 Ottawa concerts scheduled in the next 31 weeks, debut performances in Montreal and New York, and other travels now being planned across Canada. The 44-member orchestra, opening the season with Div- ertissement by Canadian com- poser Pierre Mercure, will end it with the Canadian pre- miere on May 10 of Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 14. In between, it will range widely over other modern and classical composers in its most ambitious program so far. Guests scheduled to appear witii the orchestra here in- clude pianists Claudio Arrau, Geza Anda and Alicia de Lar- r o c h a, flautist Jean-Pierre Bampal, Barry T u c k w e 11, French horn, violinists Ruggi- ero Ricci and Itzhak Perl- man; and Karl Richter in a triplet appearance as guest conductor, organist and harp- sichordist. SUMMER CONCERTS....... The orchestra has blocked out a number of two-week tours of Canada, playing both student and full-dress evening concerts. Its Montreal debut is scheduled for Oct. 7, and its first appearance in New York will be at Lincoln Centre Feb 27. At the end of the season, it will swing into a spring and summer concert series before taking August and September off. Its 1972-73 season is, al- ready in the early planning stage. Mr. Bernards, making his New York debut this month as a conductor of opera, empha- sizes the orchestra's role in student concerts and Canadian tours as the country's only full-time state-subsidized or- chestra. Five of the Ottaiva concerts will be previews of regular concerts for students, when every place in the seat Opera of the Arts Centre is sold for Top price for regular concerts is 35.25, and balcony seats arc each. Already, second- and third- balcony seats for the coming season are sold cut, and sub- scriptions for other parts of tJw house are running ahead of last year. But the Arts Centre normally keeps some seats in reserve for last-min- ute sale to mit-of.town vis- itors. GUEST PERFORMERS Of the 41 members, all but four have renewed their con- tracts for 1971-72, regarded by the orchestra's management as evidence of the players' en- thusiasm for Mr. Bernardi's conducting talent and the op- portunities provided by the program. Instrumental artists p r c- dominatc on the list of guest performers this year, hut vocal soloists will join the Cantata Singers of Ottawa under Brian Law for perform- ances of Handel's Messiah and Berlioz' L'Enfnncc Christ. They include Heather Harper, soprano, Sclh McCoy, tenor, Gaslon Germain, bari- tone, and Joseph Rouleau, bass. Some of the orchestra's own top talent will also appear ns soloists: conccrtmastcr Wal- ter Prystawski with Bernard Greenhouse in Brahms' Con- certo for Cello and Violin in A Minor, and flautist Robert. Cram with Jean-Pierre Ram- pal in Cimarosa's Concerto for Two Flutes. Lacrosse company shuts down CORNWALL, Ont. (CP) The Chisholm Lacrosse Manu- facturing Co. Ltd. suspended op- erations Wednesday, putting 110 people out of work. Colin Chisholm, a co-founder of the concern, said the plant was closed because of stif] United Stales competition anc dealership problems in that country. He said U.S. customers made up CO per cent of the company's market. But major U.S. custom- ers, he said, were lost because of competition. Canadian customers could not provide enough profit lo con- tinue operations, he said. The company manufactured 56 per cent of the world's supply of hickory lacrosse sticks. The U.S. competitors produce plas- tic sticks. The Cornwall company had an annual payroll of Life prisoner makes escape from institute AGASSIZ, B.C. (CP) A 46- year old convict, who once pub- licly thanked everyone who helped save him from the gal- lovvs, escaped Tuesday from [he Agassiz Correctional Insti- lule. Thomas Sidney Symes was convicted in 1937 for the mur- der of his best friend, Paul Fowling, at a New Year's party near Duncan, B.C. He was sen- tenced to hanged June 25, 1957. Instead, the sentence was commuted by the federal gov- ernment, and Symes said in an interview "I am grateful to all who helped save my life." "Someday I will prove their confidence was not misplaced." More than people in Duncan and 200 in Victoria had petitioned Ihen justice minister Stuart Garson lo intercede on Symcs' Ijchalf. Witnesses testified during Symcs (rial that he seized a rifle nml shot Fowling, whom he had known for 10 years, during a domestic quarrel. 1975 to 1995. Their findings help explain why low-cost countries excell in ocean traffic. The group assumed that ships for the merchant marine would be bmlt outside Canada in low- cost countries. The once-large Canadian fleet now totals just three ships. FLEET HAS DECLINED That fleet has declined since Confederation in numbers, de- spite surges in both world wars. Among tlie report's conclu- sions: loadings of major deep-sea bulk commodities are expected to increase at an aver- age rate of more than nine per cent annually. a n a d a 's Pacific Coast ports are likely to get an in- creasing share of Canadian loadings of bulk commodities as Pacific markets expand at the expense of traditional markets in Europe and the U.S. crew costs would be about 70 per cent more than similar expenses for ships from lov.--cost countries. financial as- sistance will be needed to de- velop a privately-owned deep- sea Canadian fleet. largest fleet in the study would employ about 448 men if Canada decides to sup- port only potentially-economic vessels. two fleets of different sizes as examples, the study concludes they would produce an annual gam in Canada's bal- ance of payments of million to million. OMITS LAKE SHIP? The report does not deal with the thriving Great Lakes fleet or the coastal trade. It says Canada's salt-water fleet of tons ranks twen- ty-sixth in the world in size. But ocean-going cargo ships account for only tons. The rest of the fleet includes govern- ment, coastal and fishing ves- sels. The Canadian deep-sea mer- chant marine has had an up- and-down history with brief war-lime booms ending in long declines. The report says gov- ernment measures since the Second World War helped to re- duce the size of the Canadian merchant marine to fourth larg- est in the world in 1945 when the Second World War ended. The consultants say the rap- idly increasing size of ships could allow Canada to rebuilt its merchant marine. But operating costs, particularly crew wages, are higher for Canadian ships than for competing foreign ves- sels. "Without government assist- ance, none of the ships exam- ined wculd yield a Canadian owner the same rate of return as by a foreign owner."

Pickctt, president of American Motors (Canada Ltd.) predicts a revaluation of Japan's currency and an in- crease in Japanese labor costs will force an upward trend in the price of Japanese units. Mr. Pickctt did not specify in the interview within what period this would lake place. Addressing the Edmonton Jaycecs, he said the Japanese are selling good cars, but the Canadian public must realize that extensive purchases of im- ports can only hurt the Cana- dian economy. The Japanese were enjoying an "obvious advantage in the world currency markets" and instead of selling cars at higher prices "they are content to sell more of Ihcm." To offset the Japanese ad- vantage, his company would start selling cars without fancy price Ings or options. American Motors had de- rided lo put nn end lo high pressure and misleading sains techniques employed by some dealers in the past. Expect Iiikc in liquor smuggling GRAND BANK, Nfld. (CP) RCMP In this Peninsula port within 30 miles of the French islands of Pierre-Mi- quelon says attempts to smug- gle liquor probably will increase between now and Christ raas. A spokesman said today a sei- zure of contraband liquor and cigarettes from the passenger vessel Beothic Sunday night was the second this month. The vessel, which plies be- tween nearby Fortune snu St. Pierre, capital o[ the French territory, was released from ar- rest Monday after the owners, Aylward's Ltd. of St. Lawrence, Nfld. paid a fine. RCMP declined to give the amount of the fine. The spokesman said smug- gling attempts were not con- lined to the fall. Contraband had been seized in February, April, June and July this year. The Beothic raM resulted in the confiscation of 30 bottles of various spirits, four cartons of cigarettes and several otlKr items.
