Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 30, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE IEHT8RIDGI HERAID Ttiumloy, Seplembor 30, 1971 EXPENSIVE BOOKLET Jim Alexander, a Vancouver businessman, slips a diary into his breast pocket afler purchasing it of an auction in Montreal. The diary once belonged lo Sir Hector Louis Langevin, one of the Fathers of Confederation. Newsprint plants in real trouble MONTREAL (CP) Fierce competition on the world news- print market and declining de- mand are forcing Canadian pro- ducer to close some of their mills. The latest blow to the pulp and paper industry came with the decision by Domtar Ltd. to cease all production of news- print at its plants in Trois-Hi- vieres, Que., early in 1972. A few weeks ago Bowaters Newfoundland Ltd., a subsidi- ary of Eowalcr Paper Corp. of London, announced it would take an entire newsprint ma- chine out o( production Nov. 1 for at least two years at its Cor- ner Brook, Nfld., mill. These proposed major shut- downs are the climax of a diffi- cult period in the Canadian pulp and paper industry. Mills across Canada since early spring have closed down for two or three weeks, or have reduced the work week and cut down the number of shifts, The Canadian Pulp and Paper Association said here the ma- jor reasons the industry is in distress arc1. A decline in demand not only in the United States-Can- ada's major market but in Britain, Scandinavia and Japan. freight, labor and oilier production costs. revaluation of the Ca- nadian dollar in the spring of 1970. high corpora tion tax which leaves the Cana- dian companies with the short end of the stick while compet- ing for world markets. The association said that some measures taken by the federal government, such as re- moval of the sales fax from pol- lution control equipment and the duty on bunker fuel, are steps in the right direction. IMPACT SMALL But these have a minimum impact and what is needed, those in the industry believe, is a new economic policy that "would give some muscle'1 to pulp and paper producers as well as lo other Canadian indus- tries. The only bright sign on the horizon is the increase in Cana- dian newsprint shipments to all markets in August although shipments normally increase later, at lire end of the summer holiday slowdown. Canada to back monetary plan WASHINGTON (CP) Can- ada will supjxirl a resolution at I he International Monetary Fund annual meeting here this week calling for general reform or Die Western world's financial system, a Canadian delegation official said Wednesday. The resolution, introduced laic Tuesday by Pierre-Paul Schweitzer, managing director ol the IMF. calls on all coun- tries to collaborate on setting up "a satisfactory structure ot ex- change rates" among world cur- rencies, with m a c h i n e r y to allow flexibility in day-to-day operations. It also calls on all countries lo work towards a reduction ot re- strictive trade and exchange practices. In principle, the resolution merely restates objectives o[ the current IMF constitution, threshed out 25 years ago. But IMF operations have been crip- pled by many countries not ob- serving the rules fully. A Canadian dclegailon source said an important feature of the resolution, in Canadian eyes, is its call lor work lo start now on reforming the basic set-up. Can- ada's dollar has been unpegged from its old IMF tie since the end o! May, 1970. Executive directors of the fimd are to study all aspects of the international monetary sys- tem, including the role of gold, foreign exchange reserves, spe- cial drawing rights within the IMF, and convertibility of cur- rencies. WILL TAKE TIME General reform is expected to be a long process of discussion and negotiation, carried out at the senior-officials level among government and reviewed (rom time to ihne by the finance min- isters. Finance Minister E. J. Benson of Canada returned to Ottawa Wednesday, after ad- dressing the meeting Tuesday. The more immediate problem of realigning currency exchange rates in light of President Nix- on's announcement Aug. 15 that the U.S. will no longer freely buy and sell gold ill an ounce is expected to get top priority at a Paris conference ol officials next month. IMF officials we hoping lo get unanimous approval of Schweitzer's resolution from the governments represented here. A Canadian source said the resolution was worked out carefully in many long sessions of the executive directors and is designed to be acceptable to all, including the United States. It points to "dangers of insta- bility and disorder" resulting from President Nixon's Aug. 15 announcement, without specifi- cally identifying the U.S. as the culprit, and says prompt action is needed to return to "a free and multilateral system" of world trade and capital flows. The resolution makes no spe- cific reference either to the new U.S. 10-per-cent extra duty on U.S. imports, which many gov- ernments regard as protection- ist and hampering trade. But it says "'eduction of re- strictive trade and exchange practices" should accompany the realignment of exchange rates. Don't lose personal touch Alberta physciaus warned BANFF (CP) Physicians must ensure the personal touch remains in the future service they give, says Dr. John Fors- ter of Edmonton. He told the Alberta Medical Association's annual meeting that an alternative will be found if doctors don't provide what the public considers to be basic needs. The chairman of the Univer- sity of Alberta's sociology de- partment said about S2 billion is spent in the United States on worthless gadgets, treatments and medications of "medical quackery" every year. Thst dwarfs the U.S. spend- ing on legitimate medical re- search and is about as much as Canada annually spends on its entire health services, he said.

A carefully measured degree of detachment may ac fually help in dealing with a ease, but patienls slill like to think their doctor is paying at- tention and is concerned with Uieir specific problems. He said although the post- war baby boom has faded, the continued movement of people into large cities will bring a new kind of problem before the med- ical profession. There will be more patients among the older age groups as family planning increase: there will be more persons affected by feelings of loneliness even in urban communities; and pos- sibly there will even be those suffering from "future shock." These areas demanding ef- fective emotional support will be only part of "very serious problems" to confront medicine and other social services, he said.

The Electronic Industries As- sociation of Japan was com- menting on a Canadian ruling that Japanese and Taiwanese TV sets were being marketed at a dumping price in Canada. It said the Canadian decision might have adverse effects on the sales of Japanese TV sets to other export markets such as Australia. Export shipments to Canada during the first six months of liis year totalled about units including color TV receivers, but accounted for only 3.5 per cent of the coun- try's total TV set exports.

Store hours vote slated REG1NA (CP) Tteginans will be asked later this year to vote on Monday opening of stores. The matter came to a head at this week's city council meeting following more than two hours of debate and presen- tations by delegations. By a vote of 9 to 2, council decided to hold a referendum, likely in December. The Hetail Employee's Asso- ciation presented a petition s'igned by retail em- ployees, asking that present store hours be maintained. Oth- er individual businessmen also opposed a change. However, large department stores, the Eegina Chamber of Commerce and tourist organiza- tions favored a six day shop- ping week.
