ShallowweH PUMPS 84* Deepwell PUMPS 89* While the St. Lawrence Seaway cargo tonnage total is down about five percent, container traffic is up 33 percent according to the St. Lawrence Seaway Development Corp., and the Canadian Seaway Authority. Container traffic has increased by fifty percent in the Welland Canal section while the total tonnage is down some eight percent. Tonnage moved along the inland waterway in the Montreal-Lake On- tario section amounted to 21.9 million tons. This is down five percent over the figure of last year to the end of July. The Welland canal section showed 25.9 million tons of cargo was carried, down some eight percent for a like period in 1970, ending in July. Two principal components of Seaway traffic, coal in the Welland Section and iron ore in both sections of the Seaway have contributed to the drop in ton- nage. The late start of the navigation season due to severe ice conditions has been the main factor adversely af- SEPTIC TANK WITH 70' SOIL PIPE I 50 I Headquarters for Water Systems GARNS SUPPLY Ogdensburg & Potsdam Potsdam Laundry & Dry Gleaning 9 BEAL S T - POTSDAM , N.Y .

An additional factor which has led to a decline in coal traffic in the Welland section has been a tight supply situation in the United States created by the wildcat coal strikes, a railroad strike and new mine safety regulations. The possibility of a coal strike next month threatens to aggravate the present supply deficiency. Grain traffic is ahead of last season in both sections. Advances have been recorded for wheat, barley and rapeseed due to a bouyant surge in Canadian grain exports which ac- cording to preliminary estimates, reaches a record level of 690 million bushels in the crop year ending July 31, thus exceeding the previous peak of 685 million bushels in the 1963-64 crop year. Shipments of these grains should remain strong for the balance of the Seaway season because of continuing favorable outlook for Canadian grains. Problems with corn blight in the United States and keener world competition in oil seeds and high protein feeds have contributed to a slump in United States coarse grain exports which is reflected in lower tonnage figures for corn and soybean * l -¥- traffic on the Seaway. If predictions of better corn and soybean crops hold true this year. it could signify a resurgence of traffic in these commodities during the later part of the 1971 season. A longshoremen's strike in the gulf and U. S. Atlantic Coastal regionsthis month looms as a. possibility and if it does take place could result in the diversions of grain traffic to the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence Seaway route. A strong upswing in general cargo tonnage this season has helped to offset the tonnage deficits in bulk com- modities. A growth in manufactured iron and steel traffic has been the main contributory force. The substantial grains made in this segment of general cargo traffic are attributed to heavy imports of foreign steel, Japanese and European steel traders shipped 'nearly all the volume they can under the volunteer quota agreement for 1971 which means that steel imports and the Seaway traffic in this commodity will diminish abruptly in the coming months.

(AP) — Several New York state utilities were ordered Tuesday by the Public Service Com- mission to cancel automatic gas and electric rate increases because of President Nixon's wage-price freeze. • Normally the utilities have the authority to make automatic rate ad- justments reflecting the month-to- month changes in the cost of fuel they purchase, passing along to consumers any additional fuel costs in the form of a rate hike. However, the PSC allowed a steam rate increase by Rochester Gas and Electric Co., saying the adjustment was not higher than the rate in effect during July before the wageprice freeze Was imposed.
