Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 5, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 5, 1974 and Ottawa should return to Clark EDM9NTON (Staff) Alberta should reverse its confrontation approach to the energy wrangle with Ottawa and get back to the bargaining table, says Opposition Leader Bob Clark. His comments Wednesday came on the heels of a speech by Don Getty, minister of federal and intergovernment affairs, who said Alberta should stop negotiating and' 'fight our way into a stronger Canada." Mr. Clark disagreed: "For us to continue to escalate the fight just doesn't seem to have as much potential for Alberta as getting back to the bargaining he said in an interview. The dispute is over a federal move to remove as tax deductions royalties petroleum com- panies pay the province, a federal export tax and the price of crude oil. "It is all well and good for the politicians to shout at miles' distance, but unless they get back to the bargaining table a lot of people in the petroleum industry will find themselves out of work after Mr. Clark said. Oil industry sources warned him that "if we fiddle around to February there will be a large number of highly trained technical people mov- ed to the United States, a lot of exploration jobs will go down the drain." Alberta and Ottawa have plenty to talk about, he said. A recent National Energy Board report that recommended exports of oil to the U.S. be cut, an Economic Council of Canada recommen- dation that oil prices be increased and release of a series of letters between the prime minister and premier on the oil question were all new fac- tors to be discussed. "I don't think the federal government would be to upset at all to increase the price of crude oil." "Alberta must agree to look at the whole ques- tion of the export tax, royalties and Mr. Clark said. "The consumer would pay more but he would pay even more down the road if we wend up in an energy he said in explaining why higher prices should be implemented. "Some steps could be taken to cushion Alberta he added. Politicians and others who believed they had two or three years to ignore the question of en- couraging energy exploration were wrong. "If we want to be self-sufficient, and I think we have to be, it would be assinine to let that slip out of our grasp." On Mr. Getty's aggressive speech at his nomination meeting Tuesday night, Mr. Clark said it was a case of the minister plumbing the political waters for the premier. "I think that Mr. Getty is an experienced kite flyer for Mr. Lougheed. "We're flying the kite to find out how Alber- tans and Canadians would respond to cutting back the oil (exports to the U.S.) The govern- ment will be able to gauge what happens and go from there. It is Mr. Getty's contribution to the oil confrontation." City Scene Mailbox opened, loss unknown A mailbox at 7th Avenue and 12th Street North was pried open in the night Tuesday, Lethbridge city police say. It is not known if anything was taken, Lethbridge post office officials say. The incident was reported to police Wednesday morning.

Really doubling up The Elm Spring Hutterian Colony at Warner has a crossbred dairy cow that is setting records. The six- year-old cow has just given birth to its second set of twin calves in 1974. Sam Wipf, colony cattle boss, said a bull and heifer calf were born Jan. 10. Because the weather was cold, the calves had to be taken into the milk barn, fed warm milk and coddled in order to survive. Cattle have a nine-month gestation period. The second set of twins, also a bull and heifer calf, were born Dec. 2. LCC fund crunch may bring wage crisis Some non-faculty employees at Lethbridge Community College will be receiving an hourly wage rate below the Alberta minimum if the department of advanced education doesn't approve salary increases before Jan. 1. The LCC board of governors granted its non-faculty staff a per month increase, retroactive to Sept. 1 at its Nov. 7 meeting with the provi- sion that the department grant the board permission to use surplus funds to meet the additional salary cost. The governors were inform- ed Wednesday that the depart- ment has still not provided the permission requested. Board chairman Bob Babki advised the governors that a special meeting may have to be called later this month if approval for the expenditure is not soon received. The new Alberta minimum wage as of Jan. 1 has been set at an hour, five cents more than the college sessional and clerical workers and 11 cents more than the light duty caretakers receive under their current contract. The governors agreed to take immediate action to provide the increase last month because the college has lost about 70 employees since the first of the year to com- panies and organizations will- ing to pay higher wages. The proposed increase is identical to the salary boost granted to Alberta Civil Ser- vice Association employees in October. The college will not par- ticipate in the priority employment program (PEP) in 1975 because of the limited funds the province has alloted to the program, the board of governors decided Wednesday. LCC administrators told the governors the PEP budget has been "cut drastically" by the province and government of- ficials have indicated the program may be eliminated entirely in 1976. PEP funding is designed to encourage colleges and vocational schools to develop programming to upgrade and train the unemployed, meet critical skill shortages and to fulfil the employment needs of special groups such as natives and women in the work force. Director of Student Services Dean Stetson told the board he received the impression from government officials the program is being continued for another year because the provincial government doesn't want to face opposi- tion to its withdrawal in an election year. The total budget granted PEP by the province this year is about About 000 of that amount has been designated to providing finan- cial assistance to students who enrol in PEP and the remainder is to fund the operation of the programs. Mr. Stetson pointed out that the Lethbridge Community College received to operate the program about three or four years ago, which is about more than what is being allocated to all the institutions in 1975.

PENNER'S PLUMBING 1209-2nd Aye. S. Phone 327-4121 Ammonia firm drops option, renews others One of three options on Ray- pired, and a second option ex- mond farmland held by piring Dec. 1 has been renew- Alberta Ammonia Ltd. has ex- ed by the company. Rocks continue in city Rock throwers continue to cause damage throughout Lethbridge. Time Realty, 1119 12th St. S., had seven windows, valued at broken by rocks Wednesday Lethbridge city police say. Tony Pomahac, 1509 10th Ave. S., told police he was watching TV Wednesday evening when he heard glass break and discovered a bedroom window, valued at broken. He didn't see anyone in the area. Windows were broken by rocks Sunday at a South Lethbridge residence and Tuesday at the El Rancho Motor Hotel. A window was broken Wednesday at the Pentecostal Church, 520 7th St. S., but not by rock throwers. Police believe the window, level with the ground, was kicked in. A car belonging to Ken Tyerman, Suite No. 5, 2711 Scenic Heights had an rear window broken Wednesday. Police say an unknown driver of another car stepped on the accelerator, dug a trench six feet long in a heavily gravell- ed lane, sprayed gravel over a wide area and broke the win- dow of Mr. Tyerman's car, parked near the lane. The company had negotiated to buy farms im- mediately east of Raymond from Reindert Bakker and Verl Meldrum after a preliminary site location study. But a requirement from the provincial environ- ment department ordering Alberta Ammonia to look for a site further out from Ray- mond later led the company to take an option to purchase a section of farmland owned by Bert Hall. Raymond Mayor Bob Graham told The Herald to- day that Alberta Ammonia allowed Mr. Bakker's option to expire, but renewed their option with Mr. Meldrum although his farm is too close to Raymond to provide a site for the company's proposed fertilizer plant. Mayor Graham said Alberta Ammonia still plans to buy Mr. Meldrum's land in order to exchange it with Mr. Hall once the company's proposal is approved by provincial authorities. An option to purchase Mr. Hall's section of land expires in 1975. Mayor Graham said he ex- pects a decision by the Energy Resources Conservation Board on Alberta Ammonia's application by Jan. 1.
