Amendments to Alberta's mineral legislation ac- companying bills now being considered at an energy ses- sion of the legislature are designed to short-circuit the federal export which was increased to a barrel Jan. giving Alberta the authority to increase the price of crude sold in export markets to international price levels. The government proposes to carry this out by establishing a petroleum marketing com- mission and requiring in- dustry to sell oil produced from Crown which amounts to 90 per cent of the province's oil through the commission. The proposed legislation also would give Alberta the option of accepting royalty payments in oil rather than in cash. Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed says the marketing commission would allow Alberta to receive the full price for its petroleum sold to export markets It also could be used to protect Canadian consumers from rapid increases in oil prices by setting prices for oil in Canada below international prices. To offset to producers because of sudden international jumps in oil the legislation would void previous royalty ceilings so the province could take an increasing share of rising prices. At the same the government is working to im- prove Alberta's drilling incen- tive based on a royal- ty deduction for exploration work in the says a spokesman for the provincial minerals department. EXPANDS PLAN The royalty legislation ex- pands a provincial govern- ment oil revenue plan which became effective Jan when the oil industry was in- vited to sign new royalty which averaged 21 per with the Alberta government. Companies that sought protection of a 16 2-3-per-cent ceiling written into old leases were subjected to a new tax based on the assessed value of oil reserves still in the ground The mineral tax also was applied to leases where the government did not own the oil rights These freehold which resulted from land grants to companies and individuals before Alberta became a provide about 10 per cent of Alberta's oil One proposed amendment to existing legislation would dis- regard the old maximum royalty of of the production obtained from the and allow the government to fix a rate of royalty greater than the max- imum provided for by any such provision Mines Minister Bill Dickie said 20 of the 30 largest royal- ty producers had agreed voluntarily to disregard the old ceiling and he did not ex- pect the new legislation to have a great effect on the in- dustry. This provision also extended to natural which was not covered under the legislation Premier Peter Lougheed has said gas royalties would be but the provincial government has twice postponed targets for introducing new royalty rates. If this and accompanying legislation the tax on oil reserves in the ground will be applied only to production from freehold leases. BILLS CLARIFY Mr. Dickie said the legisla- tion clarifies old legislation which gives Alberta the option of taking its royalty as a share of the actual oil and gas production. including the government of are starting to take their royalty as a share in the actual oil said a spokesman for the minerals department. With the new legislation Alberta could opt to take almost barrels a at current royalty of Alberta's total production of about 1.7 million barrels a day.

Wiserk Northern Ligfe paper attributes Japan's uni- que success to the efficiency of the Japanese police and to strict controls on weapons and drugs Japan is well known for ruthless enforcement of an- tidrug laws and for equally relentless bans on guns and swords. This means that there are very few addicts desperate to steal the money for a fix and that what crime there is is conducted with a controlled karate chop rather than the lethal blast of a night handgun Police officials asked to ex- plain Japan's law- enforcement success added another full employment. Japan's labor shortage means that everybody who wants to work can work at wages that have been rising at close to 20 per cent per year There is little theft out of raw need for money But all of these explanations are still secondary. Japan's ability to control drugs and weapons so strictly and even full employment derive from Japan's social habits.

The prosecution said the teen-ager zigzagged past a police station and refused to stop when a policeman signalled him. He was then forced off the road by a patrol car. proper homes rather than to jail to sober up Policemen still loan money to neighbors on their beat who might need a little help And in a fight they're more apt to arbitrate a face-saving com- promise than lodge a charge of disturbing the peace All this means that Japan's many neighborhood associations co-operate with the police when the police need information.
