Le Havre has 15 miles of wharves on the French side of the English Channel. It will handle 100 million tons of merchandise this year. EDMONTON (CP) Alberta should move with greatly increased caution in committing new gas to export markets until the needs of local requirements can be fully assessed, E. W. King, president and chief executive officer of Canadian Utilities Ltd., said today. In a report to shareholders, Mr. King said caution is 6No excuse' for hay shortage EDMONTON (CP) Fanners were warned about watching feedstocks this winter and now there is "no excuse" for reports of cattle starving to death because of a shortage of hay, Dr. Glen Purnell, Alberta's deputy minister of agriculture, said during the weekend. "We advised farmers to watch out for their he said in an interview Saturday "We have discouraged them from depending on a roughage ration during this extremely cold weather." The government has a stock of about 500 tons of hay and tons of alfalfa, he said. "It isn't a free hand-out, it's available at a low cost. But it's better than letting the cattle starve to death." The province in co- operation with the federal government, also has a program available to help farmers bring in feed by rail, he said If beef prices were reasonable, farmers could afford high prices for feed but as it is, "the farmer does some brutal arthimetic." Asked about Ottawa's decision to open its beef subsidy to all grades of cattle arid lower payments to five cents a pound from seven cents. Dr. Purnell said "we're happy they've opened up the program but what assurance is there that the farmers are going to get the five cents any more than the original seven "The producer was getting no more than two cents a ound under the old subsidy." needed because the sudden world awareness of energy values and shortages has brought unprecedented attention to Alberta's gas resources, both for increased export and local industrial use. Canadian Utilities was receiving a steady stream of inquiries for information on supplies for projected chemical plants to be located in the province. The report said inflationary price pressure on all cost elements, including interest expense, prevented company earnings from matching growth in-revenue in 1973 Net 1973 earnings amounted to million, four per cent or below the prior year. After deducting preferred share dividends, net earnings amounted to a common share, compared with in 1972. Consolidated revenue for the year were million, a seven-per-cent improvement on prior year revenues of 7 million. Canadian Utilities, through its operating subsidiaries, Alberta Power Ltd., Canadian Western Natural Gas Co. Ltd. and Northwestern Utilities Ltd., provides electric and natural gas service to more than customers, principally in Alberta but also in British Columbia, the Yukon and Northwest Territories. Mr. King said inflation, which is occurring in every element of operating expense and which shows no sign of abatement, is eroding the earnings essential to the continued growth of the company Cattle rustling cases decline KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) Although more people are being rewarded by the B.C. Cattlemen's Association this year for helping convict cattle rustlers, the total number of cattle rustling cases is down in the province. "A lot of the credit for reducing cattle rustling must go to police action, observant citizens and the sportsmen, campers, hunters environment program said Henry Blazowski of the Association.

W. 0.

Oil export hearings under way CALGARY (CP) The National Energy Board will face a barrage of conflicting arguments when it opens hearings Tuesday in search of new guides on how much crude oil should be exported in the years ahead. Fifty-three briefs, some asking that exports be cut off entirely and others calling for almost unlimited future sales, have been filed with' the board. They come largely from petroleum companies and organizations but also include recommendations from provincial- governments and environmental groups. The hearings begin here, shift to Vancouver next week and conclude later in Ottawa. Federal energy minister Donald Macdonald had requested such a temporary delay for the increase worked out last Wednesday by federal and provincial leaders in Ottawa. Mr Macdonald told the Commons Thursday he had requested the delay until refiners had used up their inventories of crude oil purchased before the increase in the wellhead price. The agreement Wednesday allowed the price of a barrel of crude oil to rise to from the present level of where it has been frozen since last September.
