Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 9, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethlnrtdge Herald Tliird Section Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, December 9, 1970 Pages 33-42 Chrislnms bonus for Canadian oil inleresis U.S. petroleum industry enraged by Nixon s move WASHINGTON (CP) - President Nixon's decision to tal%e a swipe at tlie politically-powerful petroleum industry in defence of United States taxpayers illustrates the importance he places on righting the country's economy if he hopes to get re-elected in 1972. Low likely pr otein diet saved life Vatican MONTREAL (CP) - Dr. David Costom, for the last three years the personal physician of British diplomat James Richard Cross, said Monday he was "glad the kidnappers were short Inflation remains big worry WASHINGTON (AP) - Arthur Biu-ns, chaii-inan of the Federal Reserve Board, says the U.S. government might have to use compulsory arbitration and a wage-price review beard to battle inflation. In the most far-reaching Jist of anli-inflation proposals by a government official in the Nixon administration, Burns suggested Monday night m Los Angeles changes in minimum wage laws for teen-agers and more liberal oil import quotas. Organized labor immediately attacked his suggestions. AFL-CIO President George Meany said Burns "wants to roll America back to the 19th century and its economic 'trickle down' theory." "Dr. Burns's prescription is I he wrong medicine for the wrong patient at the wrong time," Meany said. Last Friday, President Nixon announced plans to increase oil production by allowing more Canadian imports to try to roll buck a 25-cenl-a-barrel increase in crude oil prices, warned busi-i!c'.s.s an diabor not to bet on future inflation, and called for re form of labor's bargaining in the construction industry. Burns endorsed Ni.xon's move ns "constructive," but said if in-f I a t i 0 n continues "numerous other measiu-es might be taken (0 improve the functionijig of our markets." of money" during the ti-ade commissioner's 60-day confinement with them. The 65-year-oId specialist of internal medicine at the Jewish General Hospital said tliat because of Mr. Cross' high blood pressui-e, the low protein and low fat diet given him by his Front de Liberation du Quebec abductors probably saved his life. "Under such a strain," Dr. Costom said in an intei-view, "he could easily have broken an artery leading to his heart or Drain if he hadn't lost 22 poimds," Dr. Costom said he had fu"st been notified that 49-year-old Mr. Ci-oss would be taken to the Jewish General, if he were found alive, more than three weeks ago by Lord Dunrossil, head of the chancellery at the British high commissioner's office in Ottawa. "We hardly dared hope that what happened would occur," be said, but a small suite was set aside for Mr. Cross, kidnapped Oct. 5 from his home by the FLQ and released last Thursday. A temporaiy landing pad was also made in the parking lot across from the hospital m case Mr. Cross had to be flovvn by helicopter. "On Thursday, at around 11 a.m., I received a phone call from Lady Dunrossil saying that they had located Mr. Cross and to nut the plan into effect." The British diplomat arrived at the hospital shortly after 2:1S a.m. Friday morning and was iinmediately given a 90-minute examination by Dr. Costom who was assisted by Dr. Leonard Brandt, chief of the department of medicine. He was found to be in excellent health. no longer excluded BRUSSELS (AP) - The Vatican no longer gets tax privileges for its investments in Italian business, the Euj-opean Common Market said Tuesday. It added that the Italian government also is trying to collect back taxes, with interest, for the years 1%3-1968. The statement was made in a vsritten reply to Ernest Glinne, a Belgian Socialist member of the European Parliamentary Union. It was drafted by the Common Market Executive Commission, whose pi-esident is an Italian, Franco Maria Mal-falti. Glinne recalled reports during the last year that Gulf and Western Industries, an American conglomerate, had taken over neai-ly all of a Vatican majority interest in a real estate firm called Generale Immobi-liare. Glinne said this firm owns, among other holdings, much property along the Champs Elysees in Paris, the Watergate Project in Washington, a large hotel in Rome and office buildings in Montreal and Mexico. HONORS DUKE New York was named honor of the Duke of York England. The two-barrelled assault on the U.S. petroleum industry included permission for U.S. companies to use their overseas oil import quotas to bring in Canadian crude oil and a federal takeover of complete regulating responsibility for federal off-shore leases - formerly regulated by ' the states. Willie his move brings a happy Clu-istmas-time bonus to Canadian oil interests, it has enraged the domestic industt7. Indications are that tlie Texas and Louisiana oil men-and their influential supporters in Congress -will not take the new decree without a fight. What inspired Nbcon to take this first cautious step toward dismantling 35 years of federal policy that has had the effect of maintaining-if not increasing -oil prices, was a recently-an-n 0 u n c e d 25-cent-a-barrel increase. Tlie president's move, in a New York speech Friday, not only represents a turnaround in traditional Republican policy toward the industry but a change of heart by Nixon himself. SET QUOTA Less than a year ago he went against the majonty recommendation of a cabinet-level committee on oil policy that ui-ged virtually unlimited oil imports from Canada, in the context of some sort of energy-exchange policy. Instead Nbcon set, by presidential proclamation, a quota of 395,000 barrels a day from Canada, about 100,000 barrels a day less than had previously been flowing in. Nixon's decision to open the U.S. market to Caneda at this time simply reaffirms an earlier American und.ertaking at the U .S .-C a n a d a ministerial meetings in Ottawa last month. The idea seems to be Canada can export to the U.S. all the oil that pipeline facilities can handle. The expectation is that by mid-1971 this could reach 700,000 barrels or more. Even more damaging perhaps, Nixon also punctured the hitherto untouchable arrangement whereby Texas and Louisiana oilmen could keep the price of domestic oils artifi cially high by holding down production. In any other industry, such apparent collusion would seem to be reprehensible if not illegal. But a history of complicated concessions to petroleum have given official blessings to such dealmgs. The thing that apparently gave Nixon pause for thought, in the opinion of most observers, was not only llie 25-cent increase that pushed up the price of jet fuel and gasoline, but also the state of the economy in general. JOBLESS TOTAL UP On the day he spoke, unemployment was announced at 5.8 per cent of the labor force-the highest level in years. As voters in the Nov. 3 congressional elections underlined, this crisis of rising unemployment with spiralling inflation is a major cause of public concern -even more so, apparently, than the concern over crime and nolcncc. Nixon, in liis first moves to correct the economic balance, seems to be saj-ing he will have good results to prove his determination to "turn the economy around" by mid-1971 even though it means offending such circles as the petroleum indus-b-y, a lucrative source of election campaign support. TWO FOR THE TUB - Delivering Christmas parcels will soon be the order of the day but Big Red, a Calgary Zoo orang-outang, made a delivery of her own the other day. She took a few hotirs off from her regular television viewing to have her first offspring. Mother and son are doing fine. Assinihoiu tvonian handles her otvn case Only $25.50 needed for divorce ASSINIBOIA, (CP) -Only $25.50 was the actual cost of a successful divorce action by Mabel Gail Myers of Assini-boia. But Mrs. Myers emphasized that there was an absolute minimum: of complications and advised that a lawyer is "most definitely necessary" if there are any. "I fii'st consulted a la\vyer regarding the cost of a divorce action," Mrs. Myers said in an interview. She was told the minimum cost would be $600, "I remembered reading a story in an Edmonton paper about persons fiUng for divorce themselves, without the aid of a lawyer, and I decided to hivesti-gate this." She went to the Moose Jaw courthouse and read through the Divorce Act. She also visited Regina and sat in on divorce hearings and trials. CASE WAS SIMPLE "I decided my case was a simple one of separation for five years and that there were no complications in the case." There were no children, and there was no question of alimony or legal finaincial settlement since she is self - sup-portmg and owns a beauty parlor in Assiniboia. "I certainly would not have attempted to file my own petition for a divorce it any of these matters, such as child custody, child support or alimony had been involved. ... "I also knew my ex-husband would not contest the suit. If there is a possibility that tlie suit might be contested I think legal aid would be necessary too." Mrs. Myers purchased liie required legal documents frorn a .stationery store in Moose Jaw. She t>-ped all her own documents, and a relative served the notice of proceedings on her ex-husband, who signed the documents. She began her proceedings in May and filed her petition with the court in August. Since there were no court sessions in August or September, her case ' was not heard until October. PHIKO-FORD . . .
