4S / DES MOINES REGISTER Wsd., Aug. 27, 1978 Northern Natural sees '75 net 'better' than '74 Leased Wire In The. Register Northern Natural Gas Co.. Omaha, Neb., which serves parts of Iowa, expects 1975 earnings to "better" the $120.2 million, or $10.61 a share, earned in 1974, W. A. Strauss, chairman and president, told securities analysts in Los Angeles, Calif. For the first half of 1975, as previously reported, the company earned $66.9 million, or $5.92 a share, up 7.1 per cent from the same period a year ago. Revenues were $564,4 million, up 13.7 per cent. Strauss attributed the ei- pected improvement in 1975 income to a strong increase in demand for the company's petrochemical products, antifreeze and low density polyethylene. The company's petrochemical complex ran at 50 per cent of production capacity for polyethylene in the first half, hut it, is currently running at 100 per cent capacity. Strauss said Northern Natural's revenues for 1975 will be around $1.1 billion, give or take $30 million or $40 million. He noted that demand for liquid fuels, particularly propane, was "very strong" and contributing to earnings growth. Woolworth net up 66% F: W. Woolworth Co., eighth ranked retailer in the nation, said second quarter earnings soared 66.2 per cent on a 9.8 per cent rise in sales. Chairman Lester A. Burcham said the strong results came mostly from domestic operations including Woolworth and Woolco stores, the Kinney Shoe Corp. and Richman Brothers Co. He added that first-half sales in Woolworth's British subsidiary were running 29 per cent ahead of last year so far. Second quarter earnings totaled $19.1 million, or 63 cents a share, up from $11.5 million, or 38 cents a share, the comparable period last year. Sales hit $1.1 billion, compared with $1 billion a year ago. In the sir months ended July 31, Woolworth earned $21.7 million, or 69 cents a share, up about 6 per cent from $20.3 million, or 65 cents a share, last year. Sales reached $2.1 billion, up 9.4 per cent from last year's $1.9 billion. Maytag prices Maytag Co., Newton, said it will make selective wholesale price increases on appliances averaging 3 per cent effective Sept. 15. Ramada Inns omits dividend Ramada Inns, 'Inc., said it is omitting its quarterly cash dividend. The company said the omission reflects "prudent financial management" requiring retention of earnings for the September quarter. The company has paid 3 cents a share quarterly on common stock, latest of which was disbursed Aug. 1. Directors considered "the present high cost of debt capital and the funds needed for committed capital expenditures for completion of hotels now under construction and for required refurbishiment" as factors behind the move, the company said. It, said Ramada "intends to reinstate the payment of dividends as soon as economic and financial conditions warrant such action." Liberty Loan in arrears Liberty Loan Corp., St. Louis, Mo., said it again omitted dividends on its cumulative preferred and preference stocks. The company said that since it is in arrears for six quarterly dividends, the holders of the two classe^of stock are entitlec to elect two members each to Ihe board. Directors enlarged the si/e o Ihe board to 14 from 10 and set Oct. 23, for the election of new directors by the preferrrd and preference shareholders. Beatrice adds a penny Beatrice Foods increased its quarter dividend on common stock to 19 cents a share from 18 cents paid previously. The dividend is payable Oct. 1, to stockholders of record Sept. 12. W, T, Grant phaseout W. T. Grant Co said it will ph;ise uul the major appliance produft lin< J Iron) all its stores lir^mmng Sepl. 15. The company said it expects lo cltdi 1 oul its sl.ore and ware- house inventory by .Ian. .11. 11 said gross profit of the Grant stores will be affected in a "positive manner" because appliances typically are low gross profit items consuming large areas of floor space. The company also announced that Robert H. Anderson, president and chief operating officer. will assume total responsibility for Grant's merchandising activities. HP joined the firm in May. John F'. Crowlcy. who had been merchandise vicc-prpsi- denl, resigned, effective Tuesday, Marker Collins, president and chief executive officer of Band- ag, Inc., Muscatine, has been elected a director of Gardner- Denver Co. Dallas. Tex., producer of industrial, construction, oil and mining equipment. Copper Range. Amax step Shareholders of Range Co. Copper cial meeting Tuesday a merger with Amar, Inc. The companies have agreed to delay merger, however, until a federal court in Hartford, Conn., rules on a civil antitrust suit filed by the U.S. Justice Department Monday. The Justice Department sued to block the merger, which it said would cause anticompeti- tive concentration in the copper refining industry, and to force Amax to divest ijp present 20 per cent ownership of Copper Range, based in White Pine. Mich. In disclosing plans for the merger, Amax said it planned a five-year, $fiO million expansion of copper mining operations in Michigan, where Copper Range has its primary reserves. Over 10 years, Ihe company said, it anticipated spending over $100 million to enlarge capacity. Copper Range has been operating at a loss recently, in part the result of a fall in copper prices to around 65 cents a sound from last year's peak of 51.50 a pound. On the New York Stock Exchange, Copper Range, which had been halted from trading Monday because of the suit, fell $13.37 to $25 a share Tuesday. The stock had risen., sharply when the merger was announced. Amax, slipped 62 cents at $52.50.

A brief flurry of buying activity, pared these losses but renewed selling set in and from that point prices moved steadily lower. A major exporter was noted selling futures in the wheat pit at the time and it was thought this kicked off the bearish mood. Some trade sources thought that a lack of confirmation about rumored export sales led sellers and longs into the fray. A very strong selling influence was the lack of commercial support after the first hour. The final bell indicated that there were orders for a total of about 10 million bushels of soybeans, wheat, corn and oats to be sold, but there were no buyers. At the close, wheat fell 19'z cents to the 20 cent limit. Corn was off 94 cents to the 10 cent limit and oats declined 5 : !.i rents to the 6 cent limit. Soybeans were down 18 cents to the 20 rent limit.

(AP) - The Omaha City Council failed Tuesday afternoon in its attempt to override Mayor Edward Zorinsky's veto of the council-passed, 1976 city budget. Zbrinsky had proposed a budget, of $83,093,989. His budget does not call for a hike in property taxes. However, several members of the council, most notably Coun cil President Robert Cunning ham, voiced opposition to the mayor's proposal, saying it would mean a reduction in city services and in employes. Zonnskx_said_the_cjtx.jnust live within its means, or end up like New York City, and promised to veto any budget figure higher than his proposal. Clear legislator in expenses case SPRINGFIELD, ILL. (AP) A U.S. District Court jury Tuesday found state Representative Webber Borchers innocent of mail fraud and conspiracy charges in connection with an alleged misuse of his legislative expense allowance. Borchers, a Republican from Decatur now serving his fourth term in the Illinois House, had been charged with collecting money from the state for secretarial services which were never performed. Borchers conceded this, but said he had used the money to pay an undercover investigator to infiltrate radical student groups. Borchers contended investigations of this type were his duty as a legislator. GOLD FUTURES By The Associated Press .Here Is the gold futures tradina for „ .
