TUESDAY, MARCH 4, 1952 1'iione 4tjUU ior a \vAni AD laker Condemnation Suits Pave Way For Third Phase Of Flood Job American Money Helps Boost Canadian Dollar The city turned over money to the government yesterday to cover cost of condemnation proceeding for tu'o properties and paved the way for opening of the third phase of the flood control project. The Mayor and Council yesterday ordered a check for $42,515 paid to the Treasurer of the United States for condemnation proceedings on property owned by Emory J. Thompson, Narrows, and a permanent easement for part of Hie Atlantic: Refining Service Station. property in the Narrows. In effect, the action is similar to posting a bond to cover possible awards made in a condemnation suit for right to entry to the properties. Efforts of the city to acquire the needed land will be continued, but filing of the suit will allow work to continue while the negotiations are under way. ' The Corps of Engineers ha.-, awarded the job to the E J. Albrecht Company, Chicago, for $1,606,725. Work, however, is not exper.ed to get under way until about the first of May, since the contractor will have to wait until the water is low to do much of the channel work. The project will consist, of dredging Wills Creek and paving its bed which, when completed, will step -lip the velocity of the stream two to three times. The work will begin near the Standard Oil Company's bulk plant jin the Narrows to the Betholene, bulk plant, some 700 feet inside i the city limits. • The appropriation will place the City's Flood Control account furth- ' er in the red, since the account . was overdrawn about $10,000 on i January 31, as the city paid for | clean up jobs from the second i phase. !

The government set a rate of exchange for other currencies, with the U. S. dollar worth $1.10 in Canadian money until late 1950. Then most of the exchange control restrictions were lifted, and the Canadian dollar was allowed to seek its own level. Immediately, the premium on U. S. dollars dropped to five cents, and by last Summer it was down to three. In December, 1951, ail restrictions were lifted, and now the two dollars are at par. will have an ultimate population of!

It's better. , this i* expressed by the Canadian dollar pax value with the To American tourists, this means the end of that favorable rate of exchange they've long enjoyed. The visitor could go Into a five-and-ten in Halifax last Summer, or a meat store, in Windsor or a trading post in the wilds of Ontario, and get $1.03 in Canadian money for every American dollar he exchanged. Today, it's an even-up affair. One American dollar equals one Canadian dollar, and vice versa. This foreign exchange rate is "arrived at on the open market, with every country's money bringing what it's worth. The change hi the Canadian dollar's value indicates a change for the better in Canada's financial strength. Part of the reason for the upturn in Canadian financial fortunes stems from the American money which has come north. Tourists brought in some, investors brought in more. Altogether, almost $2,000,000,000 (U. 8. money) came to Canada in the past few years. • * » This money has gone, directly and indirectly, to make Canada wealthier and more self-reliant. Investors staked Canada's expanding mineral industries — oil and coal — and its huge forest and chemical works. Money went to develop the .Canadian power system. American investors have found Canadian properties to be sound and to yield R good return. Evidence of their faith In Canadian securities came recently, when a new bond issue of a world-wide Canadian transportation system was offered on the New York market. The bonds had to be bought with Canadian dollars, and there was a rush in New York to obtain Canadian money to pay for the bonds. So much Canadian Industry has been started by American capital that the average Canadian is a little worried. He's afraid U. S. interests are taking too big a share in their new developments. Canadian financial circles are urging Canadians to follow the American lead, and invest their own savings in homegrown securities. The dominion's expansion—and the accompanying strengthening of the Canadian dollar is due to other factors besides American investments. There have been no major recurring labor troubles, despite some strikes in railways and manufacturing industries.
