However, the report wil bo assessed during the next six weeks "as one o( the most m portant (loeumcnls of our ad- ministration." Tlie government will look carefully at ttic suggestion that Uicrc not be government inter- vention Into gas pricing and ttiat industry he permitted lo attempt to sort out the prob- lem on ils own, the premier said. The report says (hat compc Ution is the most important factor in determining the level of natural gas prices. The national energy board, nowcvcr, has restricted addi- tional expend of gas to the Uniled Stales. Mr. Loughecd said he did not know how competition could be increased under these circum- stances, but added he i.s not yet satisfied that competition is being used in the sense that people normally interpret the word to mean. Asked if control of Ihe supply of gas at Ihe source could IK a factor, he said it was a "pos- sibility." Some opposition from eastern i consumers would normally be expected if there were an in- crease In the price of natural gas from Alberta, Ihe premier said. There was "some recognition, I don't know how great, that if you keep the price of a com- modity artificially low for loo iong a period you are discour- aged from finding new sources of supply and the cycle works ultimately to the detriment of (he consumer."

The survey, conducted by Statistics Canada In June, found thai of Ihe 8.58 million workers who were em- ployed helil two or more jobs. Multiple tics Canada's term for moon- an Increase between March, 1371, and June this year. In the earlier survey, 2.8 per cent of employed people reported they had more than one job. Tho latest survey found three per cent tne em- ployed people had more lhan one job. In June, Ihe total labor force was nearly 8.15 million, and there were uncm- Nixon noiv stands in happy place WASHINGTON (CP) Many who witnessed tho ritualislic Republican party convention In Miami Beach last week came away with tho distinct impres- sion that President Hi chard Nixon now stands somewhat to the left of the party he lends. If this assessment Is correct, It's a Iwppy place lo he in the context of this election year. Nixon seems convinced that the middle road is the natural territory of the vast majority of Americans, and the shift to the left by the Democratic parly has Riven him the opportunity lo movo in. Afl he made clear in his Bpcocn accepting his party's presidonlinl nomination, ho has his sights on n "new American majority" of Republicans, the yoiing voting (or the lirsl time since the voting age was ro- rluced to 10 and disenchanted Democrat.? "driven" from their Ihe traditional brJllcs of con- servative causes, And Nixon apparently can af ford the luxury of being cav aiicr about their feelings, one party worker put "Where else can they Bui despite Iho higlily-con- lafiious feeling of wcll-lwing ,'ilhin the Republican ranks, a numlier of party warned against leaders over-con- polllical home "radicals" who have the parly lead- ership. So convincing was this re-oc- curring Iheme during the con- vention that Republican con- servatives who might have looked askance at some of the more moderate planks of Ihe platform held their fire. Con- fident as they are that they have a winning team in Nixon and vice-president Sptro Ag- new, they resisted the Icmpla- lion to rock the boat by fighting firknce, suggesting that party loyalties dio hard and that many angry Democrats who now say Incy will holt their party may cool down by the lime the November elections roll around. McGOVKFlN ON TRACK And in Ihe calm after tho He- publican convention, many po- litical observers reassessing the lot of Democratic presidential nominee Senator George McCSovern tend to agree with the New York Times that re- ports of his demise may be pre- mature.
