Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta i nurwiiy, April 23, i UETHDHIDQE Alberta's future plans suggested BANFF (CP) Alberta should stop trying to ndustrialize, says Nick Taylor, provincial Liberal leader. Industrialization will not bring cheaper products or ower taxes, he told an Alberta School Trustees' Association :onference. The jobs it produced would have to be filled by mported labor and it would make this province a less Peasant place to live in. "There is not a surplus of happiness" in those parts of the vorld that are industrialized, he said. "The day is past for industry and Alberta would be foolish .0 sacrifice what it has for smokestacks and over- wpulation He said when the oil runs out, the province will search for and when that is gone there are industrial minerals to 'ind. When it is all gone, Alberta can exist on tourism, agriculture and as an administrative centre, he said. "If you really want to industrialize, let a government department move in. Can you think of anything that grows quicker7 And with no pollution except of the mind." Industry will not bring cheaper products because it is not the cost of making or transporting something that jetermines its price, it is the cost of a competitive product, lie said. Locally made products would be priced just slightly less than a similar product made somewhwere else. "Industry won't create jobs for our children because in the first place our children will want to do their thing somewhere else and in the second place, our population growth is slack." Mr. Taylor said more jobs are not needed for today's work force adding "we have the highest rate of employment in Canada." "Western Canada is most famous for its farmers. A lot more land can be put into agriculture. Only three per cent of our arable land is irrigated Industrialization is what politicians want because it would increase their power, he said. "Think what power we would have in federal provincial conferences if we could point to acres of smoke stacks and 10 million people. "But the people of Alberta should not want industrialization.

Mrs. Meir warned the Arabs "not to take our grief as a sign of during a speech at the memorial. Meir: peace some day JERUSALEM (AP) Pre- mier Golda Meir, reflecting on 50 years in public life, said Wednesday she does not expect to live to see real peace between Israel and the Arabs. In her first interview since announcing her resignation two weeks ago, the Israeli leader said she feels no regrets at leaving office, and plans to spend more time in her kitchen "cooking for my children and I have not done for a long time." Mrs. Meir, who will be 76 next week and is continuing as caretaker premier until a new government is formed, spoke in a televised interview from her comfortable home here on THE NOOK BRIDGE CITY CABINETS LTD Saturday, April 27th Located in the WESTMINSTER SHOPPING PLAZA 425 -13th Street North We have a complete line of Kitchen, Bathroom and Laundry Cabinets, Appliances, Kitchen and Bathroom Accessories THE NOOK (BRIDGE CITY CABINETS LTD.)

Referring to the future of the Middle East conflict, Mrs. Meir said: "One of my faults is that I cannot deceive myself, and I do not see peace around the corner But some day, she said, peace will come, although "I doubt that I will still be here to see it Mrs Meir repeated that Is- rael now must be prepared for more war, but at the same time "make every effort to achieve either peace or at least a partial settlement, which could perhaps open the way for peace Mrs. Meir announced her resignation after weeks of criticism from the public and from within her own party over who should accept responsibility for Israel's lack of readiness for the October war Mrs. Meir chided critics who accused her of being "glued to her seat" as premier. "Even before the Yom Kippur war and before the on Dec did not want to continue. I left the government in 1965 with the intention of not going back." Mrs Meir said she has no plans and sidestepped a ques- tion on whether she intends writing her memoirs Male drinkers experience feminization TORONTO (CP) A University of Pittsburgh medical professor said Tuesday that many male alcoholics experience "feminization" by de- veloping breasts and losing some male sex characteristics. Dr Roger Lester, speaking to the Canadian Hepatic Association meeting, said studies showed 80 per cent of male alcoholics are impotent and about 70 per cent lose masculine hair. About 50 per cent develop female-like breasts, he said A study of 50 chronic alcoholics with liver disease revealed ieminization" in all stages of the disease, he said Male alcoholics reacted as if they had been given doses of estrogen, the female sex hormone Levels of testosterone, a male sex hormone, were low and he attributed the imbalance to a liver deficiency in conversion of testosterone to estrogen Dr Lester said a deficiency of vitamin A, the vitamin needed to produce sperm, is also found in alcoholics because alcohol blocks the enzyme required to activate the vitamin Bill prohibits boost in petroleum prices VICTORIA (CP) Legislation was introduced in the British Columbia legislature Wednesday prohibiting any increase in the price of petroleum products without prior approval of the B.C. Energy Commission. Attorney General Alex MacDonald told a news conference that the new legislation would be proclaimed if the NDP government feels that the petroleum companies are making unjustifiable increases in the price of their products. The amendments to the Energy Act, introduced by the attorney general, also give the commission the power to roll back petroleum price increases that have taken place six months prior to the amendments becoming law The Energy Amendment Act repeals a part of the Energy Act, passed at the 1973 spring session of the legislature but never proclaimed, which gave the commission the power to control the petroleum industry and to fix petroleum prices. Mr. MacDonald said the government's research has determined that an 8.5 cent a gallon increase in gasoline will be hitting the province about mid-May as a result of the recent increase in the wellhead price of crude oil to a barrel from about (4 a barrel. The government feels thai such an increase is justifiable but "doesn't want to see that artificially increased along the way." He also announced that as the second part of its two- pronged attack on petroleum price increases, the government would be bringing in legislation, probably at the current session, to get a better return from the barrels a day of crude oil produced in B.C Aside from controlling petroleum price increases, the objective of the new legislation is to equalize the price of petroleum products throughout the province, he said. The bill, as did the original section of the Energy Act, allows the energy commission to approve different prices for different parts of the province Mr. MacDonald said there should be one "postage stamp" rate for gasoline across the province.
