Energy Minister Dona Macdonald told Parliament the cuts were designed to divert exports to domestic use and avert an oil shortage. One area to benefit will be Montreal. until now dependent on imported oil. Macdonald said immediate plans called for a reduction in exports to the United States from the current level of 900.000 barrels a day to 800.000 by Jan. I, 1975. He said he would meet with the oil producing provinces to propose cutting exports more sharply —possibly to 650.000 barrels a day by July I. 1975. Even if producing provinces do not agree, he said, a new export formula to be used by the National Energy Board would cut exports to 650.000 barrels a day by the end of next year. The formula takes into account how much oil can be produced, domestic demand and estimates of how much oil can be conserved during the year. Canada is currently the sec- UN Backs Palestinians' Claim to Statehood end largest source of oil imported into the United Stales. It accounts for about 15 per cent of the total imports, but only between 5 and 6 |>er cent of total U.S. consumption. Canadian observers point out that U.S. policy calls for energy self-sufficiency bv 1980. Macdonald said his suggestions for drastic export cuts were based on a government promise to provide 250,000 barrels a day for the Montreal market. He rejected any immediate cutting off of exports to the United States, saying: ‘ An / immediate halt to exports would be    disruptive to Canadi- an-l'.S.    trade relations. It would deprive certain northern U.S. refineries and their communities of the Canadian crude oil that they have traditionally relied on.-’ Th© United States was informed    in advance of the change    in Canada's export program, he added. Macdonald said the loss of oil revenue from the United States will be partially offset by higher natural gas prices. Earlier this year Canada raised the price of natural gas exports from 60 cents to $1 per thousand cubic feet effective Jan. I, 1975. In a statement issued in New York, the Mobil Oil Co. said the Canadian move * reinforces the urgency with which the U.S. must develop its own resources. ‘•Until now most people believed that Canada was America's most secure source of foreign oil. So this action by the Canadian government dramatizes the need for us to stop talking and start doing what must be done to ensure that America has the energy it needs.” UNITED NATIONS. NY. (AP) —The LUN. General Assembly, ignoring United States and Israeli opposition, endorsed the Palestinian's claim to statehood Friday. The assembly also gave the Palestine Liberation Organization observer status at assembly sessions and U.N. conferences. The assembly voted 89-8 with 37 abstentions to adopt a broadly sponsored Third World resolution affirming the Palestinians’ “right to national independence and sovereignty.” The second vote giving the PLO observer status passed 95-17 with 19 abstentions. Both votes were met with vigorous applause from the assembly when they were announced by Assembly President Abdelaziz Bouteflika. the foreign minister of Algeria. Those voting against the first resolution were Israel, the United States, Bolivia. Chile, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Iceland and Norway. They were joined in voting against the second resolution by Britain. Canada, West Germany, Italy, Belgium, Denmark. Ireland, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. The outcome was a victory for the PLO, the Arab guerrilla umbrella organization. Israel has erfused to negotiate with the organization, calling it a band of terrorists and murderers. The two assembly votes were denounced by Israeli Ambassador Yosef Tekoah, but as the Israeli envoy took the rostrum mam of the delegates had already begun to walk out of the assembly hall. “These are sad da vs for the United Nations. These are days of degradation and of surrender and humiliation for the international community." Tekoah said. He said the assembly was "helping lift up the sword against the very nation'* that gave the world the message: "Nation shall not lift up sword against nation."

South Korea c AP» —Thousands of s c h 0 01 children waved goodbye to President Ford on Saturday morning as he ended a visit to South Korea and headed for a summit meeting with Soviet Communist party chief Leonid Brezhnev in Vladivostok. The I'-mile route through downtown Seoul from Ford's hotel was lined with crowds of children in traditional blue uniforms when Ford went to pay a farewell call on President Chung Hee Park.

Alter a brief ceremony, Ford and Kissinger took off on a labour Hight to Tokyo, where they were scheduled to stop over for 30 minutes before flying on to the summit citv in the Soviet Far East. In his talks Friday with Park, Ford gave assurances that the United States would maintain its 38.000-man troop strength in South Korea and , if Congress coes along, spend up to $500 million modernizing the Korean armed forces. In a two-hour session with Park. Ford aho discussed South Korea's repressive domestic policies, which have raised concern in Congress and brought criticism of the South Korean leader. Asst. Secretary of State Philip C. Habib, a former ambassador to Seoul, refused to tell newsmen what was sa d between the two presidents on this matter. T don't think ii would be appropriate for me to give the details of such a discussion, ’ he said. "Our iundamental concern is peace and stability in the area.” But in an apparent effort lo See FORD.

Rockefeller’s nomination to be vice president was given a boost Friday by a 9-0 favorable vote in the Senate Rules Committee, but the House Judiciary Committee continued to press him closely on pebble conflicts of interest. Completing two long days on the witness stand, Rockefeller found his promise to put hi* holdings into a blind tiust an unsatisfactory solution to sev-e r a I Judiciary Committee members. Rep. Robert Kaitenmeier. D-Wis.. said what was needed was “more openness, more information. not concealment even from yourself.” Despite the widespread expressions of concern bv com mittee Democrats over Rockefeller’s wealth, he appeared to weather the tirst round of the hearings without any real damage to his prospects for confirmation. Only about five of the 38 committee members indicated by their comments that they are likely at this time to vote against him. ll o w e \ e r, the committee plans to go mole deeply into the family finances in the next two weeks and most members said they are reserving their position on the confirmation until they hear all the evidence.
