Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta WtdMMtay, 4, 1974 -THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD -39 U.S. senators propose Alaska-Alta. oil swap Franco, 82, said facing toughest year WASHINGTON An energy swap that would send Alaska oil into B.C. in ex- change for Alberta oil going to the U.S. Midwest is one of the proposals being considered by a group of congressmen who hope to play a role in U.S. policy-making. The congressmen sent a letter to President Gerald Ford Tuesday, asking him to put Canadian oil supplies "right at the top of the list" of items he will discuss today with Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, The letter said the U.S. and Canada could consider a num- ber of alternatives to the phase out of Canadian oil ex- ports which is scheduled to begin in January and will close the tap in the early 1980s. "The Alaska thing is one of said an aide to Repre- sentative John B. Anderson of Illinois, who is chairman of the Republican caucus in the House of Representatives. He explained that there were a number of alternatives under discussion by the Midwestern policy group of about a dozen members from both par- had drafted the letter to Ford. The letter was signed by 22 congressmen. One way in which B.C. could receive Alaska oil would be to reverse the flow of the Trans Mountain pipeline which now carries Canadian oil into the Pacific Northwest, crossing the border south of Van- couver. This would mean that tankers would dock" at Washington State ports, either in Puget Sound or offshore, and the Alaska oil would go up to Vancouver by pipeline. Another possibility would be if the oil actually unload- ed in B.C., depending on where a new B.C. government refinery were located. However, Anderson's aide conceded that a major problem could be B.C. opposi- tion to increased tanker traf- fic. But the idea has also been floating in other U.S. circles. A high-ranking government official who often deals with issues involving Canada, noted that recent National Energy Board studies indicate there will not be enough Cana- Indian activist speaks Monday Indian activist Harold Cardinal will be guest speaker at Monday's presentation of the University of Lethbridge contem- porary Indian society series. Mr. Cardinal, the controversial and outspoken president of the Indian Association of Alberta, will take a retrospective look at his book, The Unjust Society. This book, published in 1969, is a scathing denunciation of the federal government's Indian policy. The lecture will be held in Room C-674 of the U of L Academic Residence building at 8 p.m. Milk sales unchanged by price The price of milk, up three cents a quart Dec. 1, hasn't affected sales at least not yet, say local dairies and major grocery stores. A spokesman for Silverwood Dairy said Fridays and Satur- days people usually stock up. "Sunday the new price came into effect. Monday and Tuesday sales were slow but they usually are." After previous price hikes, sales "slacked off" for a couple of days and then picked up again. He said he hasn't seen any difference in usual trends. A spokesman for Palm Dairies said he hasn't noticed any differences in sales "but its a little early to tell." Spokesmen at Safeway and L-Mart stores said there has been no change in sales and a spokesman at IGA grocery stores said "people are buying just like always. "They are almost immune to price hikes now. They just keep the IGA spokesman commented. Youth reserves plea on theft A 16-year-old Picture Butte youth charged with the theft of a truck having a value greater than reserved his plea in provincial court Monday and was remanded one week for elec- tion and plea. Randy Van Cleave was charged Dec. 1. MADRID (AP) Gen. Francisco Franco turns 82 today, still in control of Spain after a near-fatal illness six months ago forced him to sur- render power temporarily for the first time in 35 years. But there is growing uncertainty about the country's future. The general is mark his birthday quietly with his family in Ma- drid. But the lack of fanfare as 'El Caudillo" starts his 83rd year has done little to reduce the uneasiness. "The economic and social crisis surrounding us could be MP alleges LIP manipulation Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA MP Tom Cossitt Tuesday produced more evidence allegedly sup- porting his charges of "political interference" and "manipulation" with the government's Local In- itiatives Program. But the crusading Leeds parliamentarian got nowhere when he urged the Commons to order a royal commission inquiry to determine the ex- tent of political scandal in handling the LIP program. Mr. Cossitt contended con- fidential documents leaked to him over the past few weeks clearly show a project not qualifying under the terms of LIP can be adopted at the in- sistance of the designated regional cabinet minister and on a direct order from Man- power Minister Robert Andras. Although he was unable to win the necessary unanimous consent to introduce a motion calling for the inquiry or to Friday the 13th good day for skywatchers NEW YORK (AP) Friday the 13th this month will be a good day for sky partial solar eclipse for most of North America in the morn- ing and a meteor shower that night. The eclipse will be visible in North America except in northwestern regions. The northern coastal areas of South America, southern Greenland, the North Atlantic Ocean, southwest Ireland, western Iberia and a small portion of the coast of northwest Africa also will miss the show. No area on earth will see a total eclipse. Maximum cov- per at Pangnirtung, Baffin Island. After sunset that night, the sky should be lit up with shoot- ing or falling of matter burning up as they enter the earth's atmosphere. Called the Geminids, the meteors, radiating from the constellation Gemini, will increase in intensity during the night. They will reach a peak in 60 'y morning hours Saturday, with perhaps as many as 80 visiile an hour. The average should be 50 an hour. The Geminids are expected to produce a particularly vivid show because there will be a new moon at the time and con- sequently little light to blot out the falling stars, as a bright full moon would. Experts warn that watching the partial eclipse directly can be 'dangerous, possibly resulting in a permanent loss of vision. Many eye doctors say there is no safe way w> look directly at an eclipse. Some organizations have suggested using a double thickness of black and white photographic film, not color film, that has been completely exposed by direct sunlight and developed to maximum density. x_ Others, disagreeing, suggest this method: Stand with your back to the sun holding a piece of cardboard, with a small bole or pinprick in it, above a second piece of cardboard. The image of the eclipse will be projected onto, the second piece. Woman tells of giving earnings to her pimp CALGARY (CP) A Calgary Woman told Alberta Supreme Court Tuesday that she worked as a prostitute and handed most of her earnings to her pimp during a six week period last spring. Th' woman was the sole Cro 7.1 witness testifying at the trial of Richard Alexander Medley, alias Rich rd Carlos Jones, 26, of Calgai charged with living off the avails of prostitution and extortion. She said she met the accus- ed last April, slept with him and made an arrangement to become a prostitute. She said she had about 20 customers at to each and handed about 1400 to Medley while spending the rest for babysitting of her 15-month- old daughter. The woman said when she decided she did not want "my little girl to grow up and say Mommy's had a lot of men" and told this to Medley, beat her up. The woman said she WL police one week later. table the latest letters and memos, Mr. Cossitt vowed outside the Commons to "root out this dishonesty and cor- ruption." He contended LIP has be- come "a porkbarrel to help the Liberal party." The latest series of docu- ments traces how a LIP grant for a senior citizens activity centre in Vancouver, which did not qualify, was approved and later extended following pressure from former en- vironment minister Jack Davis. "Obviously, LIP is filled with political scandal and only an independent royal commis- sion will get to the bottom of the situation and clean up the Mr. Cossitt declared. One of the to Mr. Davis by Manpower Minister one of the basic problems with approval of the senior citizens centre was that it was not directed toward the creation of jobs for the major categories of unemployment in the area. And because the sponsor planned to have the centre built by a construction com- pany, Mr. Andras said it was questionable that the project would provide additional employment over and above that which would normally take place in the December to May target period. "I have asked my program officials not to reject this project automatically, Jack, because I know you will want to discuss it with me Mr. Andras noted in the letter Fifteen days later, memos reveal, the project was approved. Earlier documents produc- ed by Mr. Cossitt included one confidential memo which stated "no project is approved without concurrence of a regional minister." Mr. Cossitt has charged Manpower Minister Andras with misleading the Commons by assuring members political considerations have played no part in awarding of LIP grants. McCrae gets nomination CALGARY (CP) Oilman Stewart McCrae was renominated by acclamation Tuesday night as the Conser- vative party candidate for Calgary Foothills in the next provincial election. Mr. McCrae has been MLA for Calgary Foothills since winning a by election last rear following the traffic ieath of former telephor minister Len Werry. the worst in the last 30 said a Spanish news magazine' a few days ago. The comment is considered outspoken in the face of Fran- co's contention that every- thing is nailed down tight for a transition of power. But political sources both in and out of the government say the fact that Franco took power back from Prince Juan Carlos de Borbpn after sur- rendering it during his illness last summer causes concern about the future. Coupled with economic problems experts say will take Spain into recession with the rest of Europe, political unrest might present the ag- ing leader with the toughest year since he came to power after the 1W6-M civil war. There is growing expecta- tion of political liberalization in Spain and the Basque guerrillas have not given up their campaign for an autonomous region in the north. Guerrillas set off a bomb Tuesday in an empty cafe in San Sebastian in the Basque region, and workers stayed off work at the Beasain industrial plant in sympathy with Basque nationalism. Top government officials say Franco is recovered fully from the thrombophlebitis, or blood clotting, in his leg that nearly killed him. The general's hands shake, his step falters and his voice, even with the aid of the best electronic equipment, is little more than a whisper. But his heart is strong and his eyes clear and it is recalled that his father lived past 90. Prince Juan Carlos, after serving two months as acting chief of state, has been re- turned to the wings, still wait- ing to become king. Carlos Arias Nayarro, nam- ed by Franco to fill a gap in the transition program when Premier Luis Carrero Blanco wa's assassinated last December, has been forced to the brink of resignation about the extent of political freedom to be allowed under a draft law announced Monday. Neighboring Portugal's turn to the left after last April's coup has had wide impact in Spain, touching even Franco himself.
