f- i f m Natural gas field price too low CALCAHY (CI1) Ilic (iclil price of natural gas is 10 lo 20 cents ii cubic feet below what it should be, (he Alberta 1 nergy Resources Conservation Board lins concluded. A beard roporl issued tore snid tlic average price is ID cents a cubic lecl nnd this is not in the best interests cf (ho province. The well-head price of gas lias Ixxm a sore point among Alberta producers for some time and this spring the prov- ince ordered the incc ordered me coiiscrvnlion hoard to hold public hearings into (lie situation. The hoard said the price of E.IX is he-low Hie true market value hecaase of Iho lick of competition mnrjni; outside buy- ers. Tiiu competition for gas will increase only if more of the fuel is authorized for export to the United States. The province siioultl try to improve such sales by review- ing it.s criteria for determining gas supplies surplus to needs nnd encouraging Ihe na- tional energy hoard to do the same for Canadian needs. Government regulations allow only gas .surplus to future needs lo IK) export and the federal energy board says the country now has none lo spare. Provincial and regu- lations should be looked at to remove "restrictions and de- lays operating against the rcat- of the field value of gas." The board also recommended changes in the form of con- tracts to provide; for a price es- calation of llirco to four per ent of (he basic price caeli year and a general rcdi-lcrim- nation of hasic price cvei-y five years nt the latest. The government should not immediately intervene in the contracting policy but .should wait for the industry's response to the proposed terms. Tlic board said the basic i price should ho the "field equivalent of tho commodity value" which Is tho price that competing fuels would demand. "The hoard believes thnt the price of alternative energy sources .should become nn Im- portant factor influencing field prices of gas In Iho future and that they will become no given effective competition. "The costs of discovering, de- veloping, producing and proc- essing gas have not sig- nificantly affected field in the recent past."

Action against countries ring MONTREAL (CP) The Ca- nadian Airline Pilots Associa- tion announced asked the federal government to deny all air ,CCITC "to and from countries which harbor air pirates.11 Capt. Charles H. Simpson, president of the AssociEUion, also asked that the federal gov- ernment "deny nil foreign air] and restrict and com- merce as far as possible to such havens for Mr. Simpson said in a state- ment he was concerned partic- ularly that Canada disrejraate "Algeria's renegade status with respect to Ehe detcrent of air piracy." Meet Andy He said Algeria "a stale v.'hcre hijackers arc presently walking around "Unilateral e n f o r c cmenl measures are necessary until effective international sanc- tions against offending states are agreed lie said. He urged the federal govern- ment to "encourage all other nations to endorse tlie inter- national obligation Eo severely punish or exlradite air pirates ami to impose sanctions on states which do not abide by these obligations." Poll icemen face pressure on bribe temptations By BILL COULTHARD QUEBEC (CP) Mayor Gil- fes Lamontagnc of Quebec City told Canada's police chiefs Monday (hat even today's well- paid policemen face a tempta- tion "to ro-jnd out their budget" with bribes. Mayor Lamonfagno denied In an interview after his address to the 67lh annual congress of tiie Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police tbat he was .suggesting that police officers over give in to such tempta- tions. But he said in his address, policemen are under pressure from all sides, with even politi- cians trying to corrupt them. ''It isn't as bad as what Fear- less Fosdick has to live through in the Abner comic strip, hut there reolly exists an un- comfortable situation within tha police force, as to right of the policemen to fulfill their duties RVJ.I the manner in which they try to enforce the and maintain order in the commu- nity." Mayor Lnmontagnc laid the blnrnfi at the door of the news media and the public. AS OVF.RSICKK "H seems that public opinion, largely influenced by the way (hf: news media often presents police action, holds the police- man as some kind of overseer of convict he said. "It is strange to note that the citizen that is the most de- manding of the police officer is also, and quite often, the first one to try to get a .special treat- ment from the same officer. ''And he will even go so far as (o try and bribe him." But, he said, some inter- ference com from "politi- cians more anxious to have the police force intervene in their favor or against their oppo- nents than to insure a better protection for the people in the community." Interference also came from unions, "some of which often give the impression of being more interested in obtaining in- creases in salary and marginal benefits for their than improving the professional quality (heir work and their I fner-all (government to appeal Sunday work ded.sloii I KlJ.'.fONTON' I'd1'; T hr; the Lord's Day Act is rjiorncy-ntnerril's d c >a rt j ro lo.T'r.r v.ilhin the: jurisdic- Andy Russell, our inter- notice it will appeal j lion of criminal law. noiionally-fomcius nriurclin, ho-, -m Supreme Cc-Jit nil- been bogging 05 lor to m; kcs ,m Klm. lake bener care of rr.r. rj II is Iho only one vie ve. 1 IJ> i The appeal, nxpecled to cornc j He has Iho! ho shr.ulri before AlbcrUl Supreme Iry 10 aot i; Onowa, im. rioiirt's Appellate.
