21 THE IETHBRIDOE HERALD Thurtday, Stpltmber 13, 1971 Church role aired EDMONTON (CP) The Roman Catholic Church can have a valuable role in solving (if. problems of Canada's Indi- ans and leading the way to bet- ter housing for low-income groups, it was agreed at a meet- ing of the Canadian Catholic Conference. The conference, an associa- tion of cardinals, archbishops and bishops, meets twice an- nually and is preparing this week to send a six-man delega- tion to the synod beginning in Home Sept. 29. Indians and housing were two of the major issues discussed at 10 simultaneous workshops, five in English, the others in French. Delegates, working in groups of seven or eight, agreed that Indians could be helped by de- velopment of industries on or near reserves and that church funds might be put to good use as housing loans. Canada's Indians "are con- fused and don't know which way (o said Most Rev. Fergus O'Grady of Prince George. This confusion is compounded Paris deeds mortal blow to shopkeeper's tradition PARIS (AP) The govern- ment dealt a mortal blow here to the French s h o p- keeper's tradition of basing prices on a customer's ap- pearance. It ordered that the prices of all goods henceforth be clearly marked. New president of RC group EDMONTON (CP) Most Rev. E. Power, bishop of Antigonish, N.S., was elected Wednesday president of the Ca- nadian Catholic association o[ Roman Catholic cardinals, archbishops and bish- ops. Bishop Power was elected during the conference's meeting in preparation for the synod in Rome beginning Sept. 29. He succeeds Archbishop J. A. Plourde of Ottawa, who will have completed a two-year term at end of October. Most Rev. Jean-Marie For- tier, archbishop of Sherbrooke, Que., was elected vice-president and Most Rev. F. A. Marrocco, bishop of Peterborough, Ont., was re-elected treasurer. The conference ends Friday. The decree by Finance Min- ister Valery Giscard d'Es- taing met immediate opposi- tion from merchants. The Association of Used Car Dealers protested that the measure would "discour- age customers or incite them to choose low quality auto- mobiles." The Association of Antique Dealers maintained that the ruling would "ruin the aes- thetic appear a n c e ol any piece of period furniture." Under the old system of basing prices on a buyer's appearance, an expensive suit or an American accent could double the cost of an object. Shopkeepers who fail to fol- low the decree, aimed at con- trolling inflation, face fines of up to MEET IN VANCOUVER MONTREAL (CP) The boards of directors of Air Can- ada and the CNR will meet in Vancouver Sept. 28 and 29 as part of a policy to hold meetings across the country to make their presence felt more broad- ly, the companies announced here.

IN YOUR IETHBRIDGE HERALD WEEKEND MAGAZINE by "communistic groups" and other organizations who lead In- dians and Metis astray because these groups are against churches of any kind, he said. CITES ATTITUDE Most Rev. F. A. Marrocco of Peterborough, Ont., said Otta- wa's attitude has a bearing on the fact that although the church wants to keep close to the Indian people "they tend to want to go on their own." "They're trying to keep the Indians on (he reserves domg said Bishop Marror.co. "How in the name of God can you expect He admitted the church has a responsibility. On housing, Most Rev. G. E. Carter of London, Ont. said a major obstacle to overcome is a "lack of proper organization on the part of government." Bishop Carter said the church could work wiUi all levels of government to find the most practicable solution to the de- mand for housing by low-income families. Most Rev. Paul J. O'Byrne of Calgary said the church should be intimate with the housing in- dustry before it becomes in- volved. "If housing is going to be our major concern we are going to have to get into it and learn every facet." RUMORS HARMFUL During consideration of the church's policy of financial se- crecy, Rev. Patrick Kerans of Ottawa said rumors of untold wealth in the Vatican coffers could be more damaging than the truth. Father Kerans, a Jesuit who is one of the conference's social action directors, was supported by Archbishop Alexander Carter of Sault Ste. Marie who said fis- cal frankness from the Vatican down is necessary "simply be- cause of the exaggerated ac- counls of the church's hold- ings." Not all the bishops were in favor of an open-door financial policy. "Just how open is asked Most Rev. Norman Gal- lagher of Thunder Bay, Ont. "I think it should be as open as possible but, just as govern- ments have expenditures they don't want to disclose, I think we should too." The conference was asked in one of the working papers lo take a stand on self-determina- tion for Quebec but this didn't get past the consideration stage. Gold chief bar to money crisis solution Dy LAURANCE F. STUNTZ An AI' News Analysis NEW YORK (AP) The chief bar to a solution ot the world money crisis is a gold one. There are both real and sym- bolic problems attached to what prices countries should put on a pile of gold about Uie size of two moving vans. The metal is the American gold stock, ?10 billion worth. That's more gold than any other country has. The United States wanls to keep on pretending it's worth an ounce, but the rest of Ihe world puts a S42 value on it. In ether words, they put a lower value on the dollar in re- lation to gold. Aside from the price of gold, a solution to the current money troubles seems simple enough. The U.S. wanls other coun- tries to raise Ihe value of their currencies so it will be easier for the U.S. to sell to them and so their exports to the U.S. will cost more. HAY CHANGE Those countries say they will change their currencies' value Ballet loss increases WINNIPEG (CP) Th Royal Winnipeg Ballet creased its operating deficit b to in the fisca year ended April 30, 1971, de- spite a 71-per-cent increase in box office revenues. A financial statement pre- sented to the company's an nual meeting and awards nigh showed operating expenses in creased lo from largely the result replacing injured dancers dur ing the company's Europear tour, transportation cost in creases and increases in sa aries of dancers. Grants increased to from Ballet administration saic the deficit became automa tically the first charge on cur rent season revenues. Fund raising activities were in creased to help offset costs o new ballets and company de- velopment. Ballet president Peter J Macdonald announced the company will move into new quarters almost double) the ;ize of existing facilities in January. THE BIG SWEEP IS ON! FLEMING MOTORS!

The U.S. already has said it would cancel the tax if the currency revaluations are made. Thus, each side has agreed to one condition set by the other. But the other countries also want the U.S. to increase the value of gold. The U.S. refuses. One reason is that earlier this year the U.S. government rc- peatdely said the gold price would not be changed. Appar- ently it feels it should stick by this declaration. Another reason is pride. To raise the price of gold would be a formal admission that the U.S. dollar is worth less than it was. But there Is also a matter of pride on the other side. S'peok- ers at a recent economic confer- of the European countries said that the U.S. 'should share His burden" of any new money ailment. That meant that since I other countries would have fewer exports to Ihe U.S., the U.S. should be willing to admit the fall in the value of the dol- lar. PUNISH AMIDRICA! American economisls defend- ing the present gold price soy the other side just wanls to pun- ish America for spending more overseas than it earns from exports. However, regardless of whelhcr Ihe U.S. changes ils of- ficial price, gold is already ac- tually worth more than and major producers can get J42 an ounce for all they need to sell. In another way, too, the an-ounce gold price is only folk- lore now. No American has been able to turn in his U.S. paper dollars for gold since 1934. For the Jast two years, no foreign citizen has been able to get gold for dolr Jars, And sinea Aug. 15 not even a foreign government has been able to change dollars for gold at 535, by order of the U.S. president.
