Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, August 14, 1974 THE LETHBRIOOE HERALD 19 Motorcyclist bounces, and bounces and Possible vice president? Anne Armstrong, White House counsellor to former president Richard Nixon, says she is honored to be mentioned as one of those President Ford is considering as a possible vice presidential appointee. She was the top-ranking woman in the Nixon admini- stration. RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) It was one for Ripley's Believe It or Not. Broader NEB hearing sought OTTAWA (CP) Union Gas Ltd. served notice Tues- day that it will seek an order from the Federal Court of Canada to broaden the scope of a National Energy Board hearing on a pipeline application. The company says it will ask the court to quash a ruling by the board barring questions on the general availability of Alberta natural gas to Trans- Canada Pipelines Ltd. Application to the Federal Court will be made Thursday. Question of gas supply arose Friday during hearings on an application by TransCanada for permission to build 58 miles of new pipeline needed to supply additional amounts of gas to Greater Winnipeg Gas Co. and Gaz Metropoli- tain Inc. of Montreal. Ontario fires nothing compared to 'big ones' DRYDEN, Ont. (CP) Forest fires in northwestern Ontario have burned, or are burning over an estimated acres this summer, but even the largest single Lake 31 about 110 miles north of small compared to some of the worst fires in Canadian history. The worst forest fire on record burned square miles of forest in the Miramichi area of New Brunswick in the fall of 1825. That fire damaged a large part of Fredericton and killed more than 500 persons. In 1853, fires in Pontiac County, along the Ottawa River in Quebec, destroyed more than square miles. In this century, some of the worst fires have burned in On- tario and the town of Cochrane in Northern Ontario was razed twice by forest fires. In 1911. a fire burned that town, as well as South Porcu- Pottsville and more than 100 lives were lost. In 1916, Cochrane again burned in a forest fire that covered square miles, spread as far south as Matheson and killed about 240 persons. The Red Lake fire covered about 90.000 acres. No lives have been lost so far this year. Tom Backer of Fargo, N.D., who was entered in a novice motorcycle heat race, came sliding out of a turn at 65 miles an hour, hit a post and was tossed against the side of a van parked near the track. He was then flipped into the air, hit a camper and was knocked into a third van. The third van, it just so happened, was his own. And his mother, hearing all the noise, came through the door to see what the trouble was. As she came out the door, her son came tumbling into her arms. So did his shoe, with enough impact to break her nose. Tom Backer suffered only a dislocated shoulder. Engineers seek unity on resource policies EDMONTON (CP) Alberta engineers have called on the federal and provincial governments to seek agree- ment on resource revenue policies. In a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau and Premier Peter Lougheed of Alberta, the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists and Geophy.sicists of Alberta asked for a resolu- tion of the differences between the western province and the federal government. The letter, written by Akira Nawata, president of the engineering association, says the current uncertainty over sharing of resource revenues will have grave consequences for the development of future energy supplies and technological expertise in Canada. The Alberta association has members and more than 40 per cent earn their living by direct or indirect association with the petroleum industry. "There seems to be no doubt that present government policies if pursued will be seriously detrimental to the petroleum industry in Alberta with consequent loss of in- come and disruption of career opportunities for several thou- sand Albertans and other the letter says. It adds that with the current slowdown of major resource development because of conflicts between the two levels of government, over taxation will result in many engineers, geologists and geophysicists moving to the United States where there are excellent opportunities in its expanding resource in- dustries. Taylor lashes Tory plans WETASKIWIN, Alta. (CP) Nick Taylor, leader of the Alberta Liberal party, said Tuesday provincial govern- ment plans to develop secon- dary industry are 50 years behind the times. Speaking on an open-line program at CJOI Wetaskiwin, Mr. Taylor said consideration of the number of employees needed to develop such in- dustries as well as the province's diminishing resources warrants a more modern approach. He said industry should be established with Alberta fundt. in such places as Asia where unemployment is high, leav- ing the province as a financial administrator in such distant, but profitable industries.
