Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 10, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, December Opposition may ease position on petroleum administration bill 01 rAWA (CP) The Com- mons deadlock on the hotly- petroleum ad- ministration bill eased slight- ly Monday as the government's hour of deci- sion on possible measures to limit debate drew closer. A possible breakthrough to 1 avert a Progressive Con- servative filibuster came in a compromise suggestion in the House by Conservative House Leader Gerald Baldwin. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said the govern- ment will consider the sugges- tion to postpone further debate on the bill until the New Year, but to allow con- tinuation of the subsidy to im- ported oil consumers in and east of the Ottawa Valley. If the bill does not pass by Dec. 31 or a compromise such as Mr. Baldwin's is not ac- cepted, the subsidy will lapse. It was put into effect a year ago to help eastern Canadians who must pay high prices for imported oil refined to gas- oline and heating oil. A government spokesman said it is too early "to handi- cap" chances of the com- promise being accepted. A decision likely would be made at Thursday's cabinet meeting. Meanwhile, the government is considering use of a rule limiting debate to ram the bill through by the end of the year if a compromise is not reached. The Conservatives have vowed to by lengthy the bill is not modified. The Conservatives are fight- ing a provision that would give Ottawa the power to set oil and natural gas prices un- ilaterally. U.S. may tax gas to save energy Waldheim to keep peace force in Cyprus UNITED NATIONS (Reuter) UN Secretary- General Kurt Waldheim recommended Monday another six-month extension of the United Nations peacekeeping mandate in Cyprus, saying the situation there will remain unstable and potentially dangerous so long as there is no agreed setiiement of the basic problems. In a report to the UN Securi- ty Council, he expressed hope that negotiations leading to a settlement will not long be delayed. The continued presence of the UN force in Cyprus is es- sential not only to help main- tain the ceasefire called for by the Councn, to promote the security 01 the civilian popula- tion and provide humanitarian relief, but also to facilitate the search for a peaceful solution of the situation, Waldheim said. WASHINGTON (AP) The United States may be facing a fuel-saving gasoline tax to conserve energy, and a need to partially control industry by allocating steel and shipyard space in the search for more oil from off-shore wells. Despite President Ford's continuing opposition to a further tax on gasoline, many of his top energy advisers are recommending that as one step in a program of energy conservation. Ford has ordered his ad- ministration to bring about a reduction of one million Massacres alleged CORRECTION The Ponderosa Steak House advertisement on Page 3 of Monday's Herald was incorrect. The correct advertisement appears below: UNITED NATIONS (Reuter) Portuguese and Rhodesian soldiers were responsible for the torture and massacre of at least Africans in west-central Mozambique in the last three years of the War of Inde- pendence, says a UN report released here Monday barrels a day in oil consump- tion by the end of 1975, but attempts to reach'that target by voluntary co-operation appear to have failed. The administration, heading for cabinet-level energy policy talks next Saturday, is known to be considering such moves as mandatory automobile mileage stan- dards, tax credits for pur- chasers of economical cars or, conversely, weight and horsepower taxes; import restrictions; fuel allocations and, as a last resort, gasoline rationing Meanwhile, Interior Secretary Rogers Morton warned Monday that alloca- tion of steel and shipyard space to the construction of off-shore drilling rigs may be necessary to overcome short- ages of both materials and in- vestment capital. Asked whether his goal of leasing 10 million offshore acres in 1975 for oil develop- ment could be realized in view of acknowledged shortages of drilling equipment, Morton said such acreage could at least be explored to find out where there is petroleum. reg.

FOHDEHOSA SIHE HOUSE 1025 Mayor Magrath Drive TO CURB PM's POWER OTTAWA (CP) An Opposition attempt to control the power of the prime minister's office received a sympathetic but unproductive hearing in the Commons Monday. Joe Clark sought establish- ment of a special parliamentary committee to deter- mine what safeguards against possible abuse of this power are desirable or necessary. Mr. Clark's main point was that in the last seven years, the size of the prime minister's office (PMO) ha? changed dramatically, without much attention be- ing to the accompanying increase in its power. The present PMO staff is about 90, more than four times it size in 1968-69, the first year of the Trudeau administration. John Reid one of the more senior parliamentary secretaries, agreed with some of Mr. Clark's arguments, but suggested that any weakening of Parliament's control over the prime minister is Parliament's own fault. "The way Parliament organizes itself is a signifi- cant factor in the success which it can expect in controlling the he said. Communists boycott Nobel prize ceremony STOCKHOLM. (Reuter) The Soviet Union, five other East European countries and Cuba have boycotted today's Nobel prize presentation to Alexander ed last February for his biting criticism of Soviet society. Ambassadors of the seven others are Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hungary and down the Nobel Institute's invitations to today's ceremony at which the author finally will receive his 1970 award for literature. It was the first public dis- play Df Communist dis- pleasure since Boris Paster- nak, author of Dr. Zhivago, had to decline his 1958 Nobel award. Soizhenitsyn was the centre of attention at a leception for Nobel laureates Monday. Women with copies of his Gulag Archipelago and Cancer Ward jostled to get the Russian author's autograph. He was photographed holding best-sellers by the 1974 literature prizewinners, Eyvmd Johnsson and Harry Martinsson. The two Swedish writers have been pushed into the background by Solzhenit- syn's visit. OSLO (AP) The Norwegian Nobel committee today presented the 1974 Nobel Peace Prize jointly to former prime minister Eisaku Sato of Japan and former foreign minister Sean MacBride of Ireland in ceremonies attended by King Olav and the Norwegian royal families. Columbia project very low9 VICTORIA (CP) The price paid for the Columbia River Treaty project is ex- tremely low despite inflated costs during the past 10 years, Dr. Hugh Keenleyside, a former British Columbia Hydro co chairman, said Monday. "It is doubtful that it can be equalled in the case of any comparable project he said. Dr. Keenleyside, who took part in the Columbia River negotiations, made his state- ment in a lengthy article written for Victoria Times Monday The article was written in response to charges made last September that B.C. will be forced to pay more than million in excess costs. The figures were made public by Premier Dave Barrett in a B C Hydro prospectus. The prospectus showed B.C. will have to pay about million in excess costs for construction of the three Columbia River dams and million for construction of the power generating facili- ty at Mica Dam. A recent allegation that the cost of generation at Mica will be greatly in excess of the original estimates is true, he said. But, he added, "the critics fail to mention that the capacity of Mica has been increased by nearly 50 per cent from what was planned in 1963 "The construction of the three treaty projects will provide B.C. with large quan- tities of power at a time when it will be imperatively needed, and at a lower cost than could have been obtained under any alternative Dr Keenleyside said.
