Indians study legal basis for oil-sands settlement FORT McMURRAY (CP) Legal groundwork towards obtaining a share of oil-sands revenue for Alberta's native population will be considered at the January board meeting of the Indian Association of Alberta The association's legal ad- visers have been studying the recent settlement between James Bay natives and the Quebec government, says Don Cardinal. Harold Cardinal, associa- tion president, said in a telephone interview Wednes- day the same principles of In- dian land rights were applicable in Alberta and the Quebec precedent would be "hard for anyone to ignore." Furthermore, Mr. Cardinal contended the legal basis in Alberta for such a settlement was "stronger than the pattern in Quebec." He refused to speculate on what shape the Indian demands would take but promised "it will be a focused approach, not a shotgun approach." He said earlier the oil sands might fall within Treaty No. 8. Mr Justice William Morrow of the Northwest Territories Supreme Court has ruled that Treaty 8 does not necessarily transfer control of Indian land to the crown. Former Hughes aide awarded .8 million ANGELES (AP) Robert Maheu, who once headed Howard Hughes's Nevada operations, was awarded million by a jury Wednesday for remarks the billionaire industrialist made about him in a 1971 telephone interview. The six jurors returned the verdict in U.S. District Court after deliberating for six days in the penalty phase of Maheu's jll.l-million defama- tion suit. Maheu was in Las Vegas, Nev., when the verdict was announced. The legal battle began near- ly three years ago when the eccentric Hughes staged a bizarre telephonic news conference which was televis- ed although Hughes could not be seen Reporters listened to and asked questions of a raspy voice identified as Hughes, who was believed to be in the Bahamas. During' the conference, the voice said that Maheu was "a no-good dishonest son-of-a-bitch and he_ stole me blind." llaheu quickly brought suit for defamation. has not been seen in public in more than 20 years and is believed living in the Bahamas, did not appear at the trial Saskatchewan digs in Aiiende for resources battle REGINA (CP) Premier Allan Blakeney said Wednes- day that his Saskatchewan' New Democratic Party government is ready to enter new conflicts with the federal government to back up claims to the benefits of its energy resources. In a "major legislature speech, the premier reserved his strongest language for federal tax plans that he said would prevent Saskatchewan residents getting low-cost natural gas from Saskatchewan Power Corp. "We will not willingly stand by and let the SPC gas division, which has operated to serve Saskatchewan customers for almost 20 years, be plundered and plundered with no possible justification. "We will consider our course of action with care and necessary action may well in- volve a conflict wit the federal authorities. "We will not court such a conflict But neither can we shun it at the expense of all natural gas customers in Sas- katchewan." In dealing with the general effects of resource revenues of Finance Minister John Weather forecasts improved GENEVA (Reuter) A re- cent international study of tropical atmosphere over the Atlantic Ocean may lead to better long-range weather forecasting, the project's top executive told a news' conference here Wednesday Dr Joachim Kuettner, director of the international scientific management group for the experiment, added that it will take scientists more than two years to process data collected during the project, which took place June 15 through Sept 30 The American scientist said the experiment had been a success, although its full impact on long-range forecasting will be felt only when a world network of observation stations is com- pleted in 1979 The project, in which 70 countries took part, involved 39 research ships, 13 aircraft and scientists and was directed from Dakar, Senegal. Kuettner said the project found that atmospheric developments in the tropical belt, as the ocean heat was drawn upward by convection and spread toward the poles, were so explosive that a harmless-looking thunder- storm could develop in less than six hours to cover an area of square miles Turner's budget, Mr. Blakeney raised the threat of western alienation "I do not wish to over- emphasize the effect of the Turner budget No doubt Canada will survive without great visible harm "But let me say very se- riously that actions like the Turner budget erode the deep and fundamental loyalty which most westerners feel to the Canadian Confederation." The budgetary provision af- fecting SPC would force natural gas sellers like those who supply SPC to be taxed as if they sold the gas at current market rates, even if the ac- tual sale price is low. Mr. Blakeney also repeated attacks on other budget provi- sions designed to force prov- inces to lower royalties and to reduce Saskatchewan's share of equalization payments by taking its oil revenues into ac- count. The premier said his government still supports a two-price system for Canadian-produced oil, one price for domestic customers and a higher one for foreign buyers, but the same system should be applied to com- modities like lumber and iron ore. nephew on the run SANTIAGO (AP) Of- ficials said today that security forces shot and killed the No. 4 man in Chile's biggest guerrilla group and his girl- friend, and the leader of the band, a nephew of the late president Salvador Allende, is trying to flee the country.
