Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 'HE LETHBRIOCE HERALD A'jguM Petroleum refiners join West grain farmers as those suffering from long railway strike EDMONTON Oil refi- ners and grain farmers alike are waiting patiently for an end to the country-wide rail strike.

Frank Spencer of Imperial Oil 'M. said the company's Ed- monton refinery can continue woducing gasoline only until Sept. 4 because of the shortage. The lead is normally shipped by rail from Sarnia. but it has been halted since last week when the Associated Non-oper- ating Railway Unions went on a country wide strikp. Western manufacturers are scrambling to obtain other raw materials and some are failing to meet delivery schedules. Northwestern Industries of Edmonton said its shipments to Lockheed and Boeing aircraft in California and Washington have been seriously affected but no employees have been laid off. Imperial has only sufficient phosphate to keep its fertilizer operation going until the end of next week and Sherritt Gordon Mines Ltd. says it may have to shut down its metal and fertili- zer plants at nearby Fort Sas- katchewan because of a short- age of materials. General manager H. M. Bil- key of Sherritt Gordon said whether the operations close de- pends on when backlogs are cleared and even if traffic re- sumes this weekend it may not be soon enough. When a day's difference makes all the he said he could not understand Parliament was not re- called today instead of Thurs- day to deal with the situation. Like the refineries Gulf Oil Canada Ltd. and Tex- aco Canada Ltd. are low in lead and have been arranging for shipments by truck. the material re- quires specialized equipment for handling and few trucks are suitably equipped. On other truckers have been giving regular customers priority. I Country particu- larly in the Peace River district of Alberta and British Colum- were clogged with grain and ships have been avoiding the Vancouver Harbor because of the near-empty terminal elevators. Ships originally destined for Vancouver are putting in at United States ports rather than wait for says Allan Mac- vice-president of the Alberta W.ieat Pool. critical part is the dan- ger of losing some markets to which commitments have been made.

Aziz Ahmed's personal tribute to Mujib in his public remarks at the signing ceremony was considered an indication that Pakistan would eventually rec- ognize Bangladesh. The Bangladesh government had threatened to try a small group of prisoners on war crimes charges for alleged atro- cities during the war'and the Pakistani military occupation that preceded it. A member of the Pakistani delegation said India had agreed to release all the Paki- stani except the 195 that Bangladesh said it wanted to try. But he added that the 195 would remain in India until Pakistan and Bangladesh agree on their fate. He said that means the trials are unlikely ever to take place.
