Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, News In brief IRA suspects in court LONDON (Reuter) Four Irishmen accused of bomb of- fences appeared at two heavi- ly guarded court hearings to- day while police interrogated 20 more suspects detained in country-wide roundups. The first of the court hearings was at Guildford, near London, where two Irishmen were brought before a magistrate's preliminary hearing charged with murder. The charges arose from the bombing of a bar last October 5.

U.S. foreign aid passes WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Senate has passed by the narrowest of margins a billion foreign aid authoriza- tion bill described as "tolerable" to President Ford. The bill requires a cutoff of military aid to Turkey in Feb- ruary, a phase-out of military assistance to South Korea and the end of U.S. arms for Chile, among other things. The 46-45 roll-call vote Wednesday night sent the bill to an uncertain fate in the closely divided House of Representatives.

Strike slows meat packing EDMONTON (CP) A' strike by Edmonton's 20 meat graders is slowing down operations at Swift Canadian Co. Ltd., .the city's largest meat packing plant, John Hanmer, plant manager, said Tuesday. The strike, part of a nation wide dispute over wages and other contract provisions, entered its fourth day today. Mr. Hanmer said in an in- terview that production had been halved as meat inspec- tors worked to rule in support of the meat graders. Vesco denies funds charge SAN JOSE (AP) Finan- cier L. Vesco has denied charges by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission that he looted million from a mutual funds complex he controlled. In a television speech late Wednesday night, the fugitive from civil and criminal charges in the United States said the charges and a move by Costa Ricans to have him expelled were instigated by political enemies at home. Makarios' return delayed NICOSIA (Reuter) A Cyprus government official said today the return to the island of Archbishop Makarios had been delayed by 24 hours from Friday until Saturday. Thousands of people had al- ready started pouring into the capital from the countryside to welcome the archbishop back. U.S. coal miners ratify 'fattest ever9 contract WASHINGTON (AP) Striking coal miners have approved a new contract by a margin of around 57 per cent, clearing the way for a reopening of some mines in the United States as early as next week. United Mine Workers President Arrtold Miller planned to sign the three-year agreement trxhy with the Bituminous Coal Operators Association after an- nouncing the official results of the ratification vote. The new contract will become effective at a.m. Friday. Although most of the striking UMW members ar.e not ex: pected back to work before Monday, in- dustry officials say some miners may begin work Friday or Saturday. The strike forced the closing 24 days ago of mines producing 70 per cent of U.S. coal and idled more than workers in the coal-related steel and railroad industries. However, government forecasts of up to layoffs never materialized. It was the first contract ratification by rank-and-file union vote in the UMW's 84- year history. In the past, only union leaders approved contracts. The in the union's for a 64-per-cent boost in miners' wages and benefits over three years. No change in attitudes after Ford, PM meet beef quotas established by Canada. In this case, both men ex- pressed confidence that of- ficials who met here last week and will meet again in Ottawa in January can find a solution to the situation. The prime minister, who ar- rived here Wednesday mor- ning, also attended a working dinner along with 27 other U.S. and Canadian officials. Gov't bills still facing Tories' stalling tactics OTTAWA (CP) One bill with a year-end deadline for final passage got Commons approval in principle Wednesday, but it and another priority item still face possi- ble Progressive Conservative stalling tactics. Second reading of the bill to increase the number of federal ridings, which the Conservatives have vowed to block if it is not amended, was approved 122 to 80 despite a split in Liberal ranks. Two Quebec Liberals voted against the plan. Meanwhile, Alvin Hamilton (PC Qu'Appelle-Moose Mountain) said his party will stall the petroleum ad- ministration bill if Conser- vative amendments are not accepted. If that bill does not pass by Dec. 31, the subsidy to eastern consumers of expen- sive imported oil will lapse. "If we want to, we can debate all 95 he said when asked in an interview about a speeches to delay legislative progress. "I don't like that word, but when principles are at stake we have to make sure people know what they are." The redistribution bill came up for a vote only after the Conservatives promised not to prolong second-reading debate, a pledge the govern- ment said it wanted before bringing the bill back into the House. However, some Conser- vatives have said they will block it at committee study if changes are not made. If the bill, which would add 15 MPs to the Commons for the next election, does not pass by Dec. 31, the current redistribution system will continue. Conservatives say the bill, providing for Commons ex- pansion after each 10-year census, would make the House unwieldy. Some from Alberta and British Columbia say their provinces would not get enough seats. John Reynolds naby-Richmond-Delta, has promised a filibuster if necessary, and says the Liberals "are going to have to go into committee with an open mind" if they want it to pass. The government says all suggestions will be con- sidered, but Government House Leader Mitchell Sharp has said he doubts the bill can be improved. If the bill passes, no province will lose seats and all but the four Atlantic provinces will have increased representation. Under the present system, only Ontario and British Columbia would gain in the next redistri- bution, and some provinces would lose seats. WASHINGTON (CP) Prime Minister Trudeau and U.S. President Ford discussed each other's oil concerns Wednesday but came away with no apparent change in each other's point of view. The discussions were part of their first meeting ever and included the announced Cana- dian intention to phase out ex- ports to the U.S. The two national leaders held a two-hour meeting in the president's White Rouse oval office, the first of two sessions of wide ranging discussions. If there was one clear mes- sage that came out of the dis- cussions, described variously as warm, frank and friendly, it was this: Canada's decision to phase out exports is un- changeable although there will be discussions with Americans during the eight- year phaseout period on how it 0 bar will be done. Trudeau explained Canada's diminishing oil reserve position; Ford expressed sup- port for the position of 17 congressmen who expressed fear for the future of border state refineries. The prime minister was ex- pected to reiterate the Cana- dian position this morning when he met with a group of senators. Oil was only one of a variety of subjects discussed by the two leaders who devoted half their time to international matters. Another issue, barely touch- ed upon, was that of beef and pork quotas imposed by the United States in response to including External Affairs Minister Allan MacEchen. Both said their meetings were successful. The prime minister made something less than a splash here. Local newspapers bare- ly mentioned the visit Wednesday. West German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt, who started a formal visit today, was getting more news coverage. Lougheed says plan will encourage oil exploring CALGARY (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed East Slope coal permits undergo EGA scrutiny France, Quebec reach economic agreement PARIS (AFP) France and Quebec reached agree- ment today boosting economic, technical and cultural co-operation which Quebec's visiting premier, Robert Bourassa, described as a "concrete demonstration of the tightening of links between Quebec and France." Mr. Bourassa was schedul- ed to give details of the agreements to reporters after it is signed at the offices of the Quebec delegation here. French Premier Jacques Chirac said the agreement stressed increased cultural ties as well greater economic and commercial exchanges. "I am especially pleased with the results we have Chirac said at the end of two hours of dis- cussions with Mr. Bourassa. EDMONTON (CP) The Environment Conservation Authority (EGA) probe of coal exploration on the Eastern Slopes of the Rockies will en- tail a review of policies and a detailed look at each explora- tion permit issued, Walter Trost, ECA chairman, said today. Public hearings are not planned because there was public input during the original ECA study of land use on the eastern slopes. But the public can volunteer information, said Dr. Trost. He added that the authority might conduct on site ex- aminations of coal explora- tion areas. It should complete its inquiry in a month, and will present its findings to En- vironment Minister Bill Yurko. The government announced a freeze on new development on the Alberta side of the mountains when the ECA began its land use hearings in mid 1973. Environmentalists thought the freeze meant coal explora- tion would be stopped, but Allan Warrack, lands and forests minister, has said it only applied to development. At least 58 exploration per- mits have been issued since the summer of 1973.

The rules committee, which voted 9 to 0 on Nov. 22 to rec- ommend the nomination be approved by the full Senate, said it has found "no bar or impediment which would dis- qualify" the former New York governor. The Senate will vote on the nomination next Tuesday. The committee said it had been concerned about five main issues conflicts of interest raised by the Rockefeller fortune, Rockefeller's federal taxes, political contributions made by the entire family, Rockefeller's loans and gifts to associates and his associa- tion with publication of a biography of a political op- ponent. The greatest question of all, it said, is the implication rais- ed "in the potential wedding of great wealth and business interests with great political power, the totality of which has been unmatched." Earlier this week, J. Richardson Dillworth, finan- cial adviser to the Rockefeller family, told the House of Representatives judiciary committee that 84 family members own securities valued at more than billion. hinted Wednesday night that the province's contingency plan to aid the oil industry might encourage exploration in Alberta and make explora- tion on federal lands less attractive. Mr. Lougheed told a meeting in his Calgary West constituency that the plan, which would be released within two weeks, would "primarily encourage ex- ploration in Alberta, and only secondary priority would be given to exploration in other parts of Canada, such as federal lands." He said he was referring to income from oil production in Alberta which is channeled into exploration in so-called frontier areas such as the Arc- tic and sea beds. The premier won personal renomination without opposi- tion as about 450 people, many from the oil industry, gave him a standing ovation. Mr. Lougheed repeated that Alberta no longer feels bound by the federal oil pricing agreement which set domestic oil prices at a barrel, and said oil prices should be brought up to the international level of a barrel immediately. The Conservative premier said Ottawa's decision to tax royalty payments to the prov- inces is "repellent to our sys- tem of government" and it is causing "the greatest threat to Confederation in history."
