One involves an alleged international plot to blow up a bridge needed to transport copper from the landlocked African nation of Zambia, and thus drive up the red metal's price. Tlie other involves a search for two radioactive capsules of radium that vanished in shipment, forcing federal authorities to hunt for pill-size objects on a continental landscape. The copper caper was related this week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Copper prices have fallen re- centb' although a lot of "experts" had bet Uiey would remain high. Demand was great. Even government officials of some copper producing countries felt high prices would continue. On the London Metal Exchange, where copper traders meet, a price of 98% cents a pound was quoted this spring. By late summer it was one-half that. It is still only 60 cents a pound, meaning a lot of money has been lost. Speculators purchase "advance" conb'acts of copper and other metals. That is, they bet on the future of the market. On Nov. 9 they are willing to contract for a supply of copper scheduled for delivery Jan. 1. Why? On Jan. 1 they hope the price for copper is higher. If it is they can sell their contract at a prof- j it. If their betting is wrong — if (prices fall — they're in ti-ouble. A copper speculator who invested last spring figured that his conti-ol of a tiny share in tlie 'wealth of Zambia, the free I world's top exporter of copper, would gi-ow in value. It didn't, i Zambian copper prices ha- i ven't soared, of course. For var- ) ious reasons — nationalistic, political, industrial, military — , ttie stress on demand lightened. The bridge is intact.
