Railway companies need higher revenues to finance expansion EDMONTON (CP) A CP Rail marketing executive says the Canadian transportation industry must become profitable if it is to expand sufficiently to meet future demand. Jack Morrish of Montreal, the railway's vice-president of marketing and sales, told the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists, and Geophysicists of Alberta Tuesday that railways need higher revenues to finance such expansion. "The best way of attracting more capital is to allow the current rate of return on in- vestment in transportation to equal the market rate for the use of capital in ventures of comparable risk in other in- he said. Mr. Mornsh said CP Rail is the most profitable major railway in Canada, but its an- nual investment return of four per cent is less than half the rate of its major customers. Refuting claims that railways are obstructing Western economic development, Mr. Morrish said the more industrial ac- tivity there is in the West, the greater the opportunities for railways. However, he warned that "playing with freight rates" is not the way to bring about Western industrial development. Freight-rate freezes and other reductions have been tried in the past, but complaints of regional economic inequalities persist. The Crowsnest grain rates, originally established in 1897, are an example of how specific rates designed to help an industry can become a problem for that industry, he said. "There is a growing aware- ness in the West that the ab- normally low and fixed level of grain rates is distorting economic he said. Mr. Morrish said new in- vestments are needed to bring Canada's gram-handling facil- ities up to date, but this can- not be done because the necessary incentives are lacking He suggested federal and provincial governments meet private enterprise to devise a program for tangible economic expansion. "Once such a program has been defined and im- plemented, the transportation industry would be in a position to play a supportive he said. United Nations troops speed prisoner exchange By JOSEPH MacSWEEN NICOSIA (CP) Col. Guy Lessard. commander of the Canadian Airborne Regiment, said Tuesday the present ex- change of prisoners of war in Cyprus would not be taking place but for the work of United Nations soldiers on the island. Busloads of Greek-and Tur- kish-Cypriot PoWs were congregating at the exchange centre on the parking lot of the Ledra Palace Hotel as Col. Lessard spoke with a reporter. The general exchange of ap- proximately prisoners on both sides began Monday after the completion Saturday of an operation for the release of sick and wounded prisoners. The whole exchange is ex- pected to be completed within 10 days. Canadian use the Ledra as a head- the prisoners from one set of buses to another in the ex- change supervised by the In- ternational Committee of the Red Cross. Col. Lessard spoke of the changing and greatly increa- sing responsibilities of United Nations troops since a Turkish army captured a huge chunk of Cyprus in two rounds of fighting in mid-July and mid-August. Since the ceasefire which the Canadians helped bring about Aug. 14, the Canadians had negotiated countless New stamps to be issued OTTAWA (CP) The post office will put out 34 new stamps in 1975. including four issues of Olympic stamps, Postmaster-General Bryce Mackasey announced Tuesday. Water and combat sports will be featured in the two issues of surcharged Olympic stamps. The extra charge is destined for the fund for the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal. The issues will be put out in their regular eight-cent, 10- cent and 15-cent denominations with an extra levy of two cents on the eight- cent stamp and five cents on the 10-and 15-cent stamps. ceasefires at the local levels and the Canadian Airborne, comprising two commando groups, had become more and more involved in hu- manitarian activities. One of the first tasks was the collecting of bodies and restoring them to their respective sides. The UN also helped trace missing persons among the some refugees and also provided food and water for starving domestic animals. Water was a particular problem on an island chronically short of water. Power failures caused serious shortages because electricity is needed to operate pumps all over Cyprus. Turks were unable to make repairs when pumps were damaged at Morphou. 20 miles area from which Nicosia receives two- thirds of its water supply. The Canadians managed to get blueprints and pump parts to the Turks so that the water would flow again. On Monday the Canadian Airborne managed to obtain the safe conduct of an Ed- monton family.
