'Hie federal and S'ocial Credit provincial governments had at- tempted to solve tlie problem by limiting the number of peo- ple involved in farming. POSITIVE APPROACH The Conservatives, he said, would take a positive approach Natural gas firm plans huge plant HOUSTON, Tex. (CP) El Paso Natural Gas Co. Thursday announced plans to constnict the world's first commercial plant for conversion of coal inlo a synthetic gas suitable for pipeline transmission. The plan! will be located in New Mexico near El Paso's ex- isting pipeline system and cost approximately million, the company said. Howard Boyd, chairman of the board, said that the project to produce 250 mil- lion cubic feet of gas a day CARPET and LINO (Complete Installalionsl) Free Estimates! No ObligalionI PHONE 327-8578 CAPITOL FURNITURE "The Carpet House ol Ihc South" will aid the company in main- taining its present level of deliv- eries. An application will be filed with the Federal Power Com- mission within the next few weeks for authority to construct (he new facilities. Initial work on the plant is expected to begin shortly after authorization. First deliveries could begin bv 1976. Gasification of coal is a tech- nology for the conversion of coal deposits into a synthetic gas. El Paso has acqmreo recover- able coal deposits in the magni- tude of 900 million tons in the area of the location of its pipe- lines. El Paso was one of the first companies to import large quantities of natural gas from Canada AUTHORIZED BY: RICHARD BARTON CAMPAIGN ORGANIZATION and expand domestic and ex- port markets, maintain Lhu family farm, aid the farm econ- omy by assisting the rural non- farm economy, increase the processing of agricultural pro- ducts wilhin the province and enlarge agricultural ctcdit. A joint approach, with indus- try, would be made to package am1 sell Alberta's produce more effectively and aggressively. The market for pork in the Far East would be exploited with specialty cutting and pro- cessing done in Alberta, along with other new processing oper- ations such as rapcseed crush- ing, forage dehydrating and pel- letization, lamb and wool pro- cessing and cleaning and pack- aging facilities for specialty seed crops. VEGETABLE OILS A Conservative government would press for tlie movement of vegetable oils by tanker truck instead of rail car, the movement of farm produce by pipeline, and streamlining of the full delivery system from the farm to the poll, including better port facilities, New products would be grown in Alberta, including mustard seed, buckwheat in high de- mand in the Far East and sun- flowers, as well as crops high in demand in (he United States. Mr. Lougheed said Alberta would use the team sales sys- tem employed by Japan to pen- etrate traditional British and European markets as well as the nortliweslern U.S., Califor- nia, Alaska, British Columbia, Eastern Canada and Japan. Long-term contracts for agri- cultural products would be sought with countries such as Japan. Mr. Lougheed said an aggres- sive marketing council with vigorous and bold policies would expand market poten- tial, and fie production to mar- keting so Alberta could reach a target of ?1 billion in gross farm income within the next few vears.

Notley: half-baked plan BERWYfr (CP) The So- cial Credit government's re- quests for proposals program "is a half baked scheme which mil drive social services in Alberta back to the deplor- able conditions which existed in the era of Charles GrauL Notley, leader of the New Democratic Party, said Thursday night.
