Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 12, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, April 12, 1973 THE UTHBRIDCE HERA1D 21 landing rights Air Canada position in jeopardy MONTREAL (CP) Air Can- ada's position as Canada's ma- jor international airline will dis- appear within 10 years if the federal government grants CP Air landing rights in Milan, says Air Canada president Yves Pratte. Mr. Pratte saaa that if the government decides to grant the Milan rights to CP Ah- it mean the government "does not believe in Air Canada any more." But John Gilber, C? Air pres- ident, contends that the logic for the Milan decision is with CP Air, which already serves Rome. Both airline presidents were interviewed by La Presse. "It would be nonsense, from an economic view, to give Mi- lan to Air Mr. Gilmer said in Vancouver. The Milan landing rights have been granted to Canada by Italy in return for Toronto land- ing rights granted to Alitalia. The Italian airline has been flying into Toronto for almost sfix months but the federal cabi- net has not yet announced which of the two rival Canadian carriers will be granted the rights at Milan. If CP Air wins the Milan route, "it would confirm the present policy of favoring the Crown corporation's competitor, even to the detriment of the Mr. Pratte said.

Off ice at 328.6046, 327-3396, 328-4572 Mr. Gilmer said Alitalia would "annihilate" the com- petition if there were two Cana- dian carriers serving two differ- ent Italian cities. "Canada's balance of pay- ments would deteriorate af our country didn't get its fair share of the travel between Canada and Italy. "It must be understood that the Canadian government will contribute to produce more rev- enue for Canada if it allows CP Air to go to Milan, because a Acute shortage of farm labor in Montana BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) The demand for farm and ranch workers is critical in Yellowstone County, 'according to the manager of the Billings State Employment Service Of- fice, Clarence Nybo. The shortage of workers has caused many farm operators to increase wages and fringe benefits, Nybo said. He said jobs for married couples aver- age to a month plus housing, utilities and other ben- efits. He said qualified single farm and ranch workers can receive from to per month plus room and board. single carrier will be more ca- pable of competing with Alitalia than two carriers would." Mr. Gilmer also said Milan is viewed by geographers as a southern European City and southern Europe belongs to CP Air under the division of the world drawn up in 1964 by for- irrer transport minister Jack Pickersgill. Both presidents indicated there is some discontent with general relations with the air- lines. Mr. Gilmer said "some con- fusion exists in the air transport industry" and added that "Ot- tawa does not pay much atten- tion to the airlines." Mr. Pratte indicated that dur- ing his four years in office he has been unable to obtain from the government a definition of what Air Canada should be or what the government expects of the Crown-owned carrier. "Does the government want It to be an enterprise with no kind of interest in profitability? If that's what they want, let them tell us. It would be easy for us to cut the fares by half on the domestic network tomorrow morning. It's not our money." He said his efforts to find out from the government what di- rection Air Canada should head in and what the airline's future is "have been absolutely in vain." Energy crisis growing Gasoliiw price increase expected WASHINGTON (Renter) A United States treasury official warned motorists yesterday to expect gasoline prices to rise. William Simon, deputy treas- ury secretary and chairman of the government's oil policy committee, said President Nixon will announce a new pol- icy in about two weeks, de- signed to meet a growing energy crisis caused by a short- age of oil. Nixon is expected to relax re- strictions on imports while of- fering incentives to increase do- mestic production, Simon said. But, he told a House of Rep- resentatives foreign affairs sub- committee, "for the rest of this decade we will need foreign crude oil from wherever we can obtain it, including the Middle East." Asked whether he expected tariffs on oil imports might push up gasoline prices, he re- plied he expected prices to go up in any event. New chemical aids cattle OTTAWA (CP) Ralgro, a new chemical growth-stimulant implant for use in beef cattle recently approved for use in Canada, should be a welcome eld for cattlement, an agricul- ture department news release said Tuesday. The new implant, a derivative of a chemical compound ex- tracted from forn mold, will help replace DBS (diethylstO- bestrol) implants. DES, a highly potent sex hormone, was suspended for use Jan. 1 be- cause of a link with cancer in humans. Ralgro can be used as an im- plant to increase rate of gain in suckling and beef calves, growing beef cattle, feedlot steers and heifers, but not in breeding animals or veal calves, the release said. Current cost of the implant is about 75 cente an animal for a 36-miligram doze, the implants are placed in the animals' ears. Animals must not be slaugh- tered until at least 65 days after treatment. CRASH KILLS 9 LOME, Togo (AP) A head- on collision Sunday between a car and a bus returning from a school football game killed nine children and injured 34, police reported. The United States will be in- creasingly depwteit on the Middle East for itc oil despite recent oil finds in Alaska and in the ocean off the U.S. mainland, Simon said. NEEDS WILL DOUBLE U.S. oil needs by 1985 will be more than double what they were in 1971, Simon said, and most of the increase must come from abroad. The treasury official, opening witness at a congressional in- quiry into oil shortages, urged closer co-operation between tine major consumers of Middle East oil. "It will be difficult to co-ordi- nate the energy policies of a large group of consuming na- tions, and to secure a joint ap- proach to common supply prob- lems. "We are convinced, however, that the consuming countries should begin to explore this ap- proach he said. COMING WATCH II "Yes! Admiral: They're the best for my money and I'll tell you why.
