One man struck a match to see if the gasoline tank in his car was empty. It wasn't! One man patted a strange bulldog on the head to see if it was affectionate. It wasn't! One man speeded up to see if he could beat the train to the crossing. He couldn't! One man touched an electric wire to see if it was charged. It was!

The Uthbttdge Herald "Serves the South" Pipeline building starts ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) Nearly six years ago, oil companies announced plans for an 800-mile pipeline from Alaska's oil-rich North Slope to the ice-free port of Valdez. On Monday, after winning battles over environmental protection, state and federal right-of-way permits and labor union contracts, the Alyeska Pipeline Service Co. announced the formal start of work on the project. The announcement came after an agreement with union leaders on a labor pact which includes a no-strike clause and covers work on all pipeline-re- lated 12 pumping stations and the Valdez tanker terminal. Actual pipeline work comes under a separate agreement Alyeska says a short span of pipeline will be laid soon in the rugged Keystone Canyon area, but most work will be held off until next summer. TO BUILD ROAD The first project will be a 360-mile state road from the Yukon River north to Prudhoe Bay, to transport men, materials and machinery to construction camps in the remote northlands Loaded at White House Transcripts of White House tapes and other information is placed into a station wagon at the Ex- ecutiver Mansion Tuesday to be carried to the House Judiciary Committee. This is information supplied by the White House to the panel for use in its impeachment probe. Story Page 1.

LOOK OUT BELOW An estimated 120 million rubic feet of snow fell in an avalanche in the Italian Alps in 1885. TORONTO (CP) Gabriel Gilbert, retiring president of The Canadian Press, today re- viewed a year of technical and editorial advances by Canada's news co-operative and forecast continuing development year by year for the benefit of all Canadians. Mr. Gilbert, completing a two-year term as CP president and 12 years as member of the association for the old Quebec L'Evenement- Journal and then Le Soleil, spoke at the co-operative's annual meeting. He reported that CP in the last year has "jumped right into the field of electronic journalism" by use of video- display terminals (VDTs) for writing and editing for both CP and its affiliated company, Broadcast News Ltd. The first three VDT units, on which editors write and edit copy electronically on a small television-type screen, were installed at Halifax in September These were followed by installations at Vancouver and Toronto and by fall there will be 17 or 18 VDTs at Toronto, 16 at Montreal, three at Winnipeg and three at Edmonton. TIED TO COMPUTER The VDT's are tied to a computer storage-and- retrieval system installed earlier this year at CP's head office in Toronto. By year- end, seven computers will be in operation compared with two a year ago. Mr. Gilbert also spoke of multiplex operation, a technical system that creates more than a score of teletype circuits from one voice- quality line This has made possible extension to other parts of Canada of the complete CP news service, previously available only to the large papers in Central Canada. "These major technological changes could not be made without large expenditures of Mr. Gilbert said. "By the end of 1974, we shall have spent more than million on computers, VDTs and multiplex equipment." The president reported on a sharp increase in membership since the 1973 meeting, an addition of eight papers raising the total to 110, the highest point since 1919 "For me, as a French- speaking member, the most satisfying thing is that our Frenchlanguage membership increased by five (to 14) and now, for the first time in CP's 56 years, we serve every French-language daily in the country. In discussing the news report, Mr. Gilbert said that in addition to the expanded service made possible by multiplex, the increased number of circuits have enabled CP to provide nation- ally a specially-patterned package wire of news for small evening papers, similar to service now delivered to Ontario papers outside the1 large cities. The president reported that regular regional news study committee meetings are held across the country and that a special membership committee, set up after last year's annual meeting, had kept a continuing watch on CP's news job. In conclusion, Mr. Gilbert said "About CP's future, my own view is that our co-operative, with strong direction from its executive committee and board and a most progressive and competent management team, is moving firmly forward, technically and editorially, developing the national news service year by year for the benefit of all Canadians."
