Extortion bid probed CALGARY (CP) City police are investigating an attempt to extort from a couple who found a note con- taining a bomb threat in their dome last week. The couple told police that when they returned to their unlocked home they found the note, marked in the master bedroom. It said the house had been broken into and that a small bomb had been hidden somewhere inside. The note instructed the couple to put in a bag and leave it at a Calgary garbage bin. The note said that if the cou- ple followed the instructions, they would receive a phone call telling them where the bomb was hidden. They searched the house and called police but found no sign of a bomb. Police staked out the garbage bin but no one showed up looking for money.

Here skaters work out in a downtown square and the most pleasant surprise was no snow in the surrounding streets. Liberal energy policy would ban royalties EDMONTON (CP) The federal government has a "valid complaint" about Alberta taking a large share of oil revenues, says former Alberta premier Harry Strom. Mr. Strom, Social Credit member of the legislature from Cypress, said basic prin- ciples of the owner renter relationship should be taken into account when the energy dispute between Alberta and Ottawa is considered. He gsve the example of a farm owner making a long- term agreement with a renter for the owner to receive a one- third share of the annual harvest at a time when wheat sells for a bushel. In the second year of the agreement the price of wheat goes up to a bushel. "Is the owner justified in altering the terms of the agreement simply because the wheat was produced earlier at a lower ask- ed Mr. Strom. He then said it was assumed that the owner was exempt from federal taxation by law, and that if the owner increas- ed the amount he took he was preventing the federal authority from collecting a share of taxation. HARRY STROM Applied to the energy situation, Alberta is represented by the owner, oil companies by the renter and Ottawa by the federal taxing authority. SHARE INCREASES Mr. Strom said that before recent increases in the price of oil, Alberta received about 22 per cent of oil produced by the companies in royalties. After the increases, the province's share went up to 65 per cent. Since the provincial govern- ment is not subject to tax- ation, it appears Ottawa feels that Alberta is taking oil in the form of increased rent, prohibiting the federal government from exercising full taxation rights, he said. "The federal government has a valid complaint when Alberta takes a bigger share than the original agreement dictates, preventing the federal government from receiving its share through taxation." He added that Alberta was entitled to the world price for its legitimate share of oil revenues, and said Ottawa was using bad judgment by imposing an "excess resources tax" on a single in- dustry. Seismic contracts cancelled CALGARY (CP) The provincial Liberal party will fight the next election with an energy platform calling for total abolition of royalties, says Nick Taylor, Alberta Liberal leader. Speaking in an interview following a party policy conference here, Mr. Taylor said the province should in- stitute a special tax on oil company income instead of royalties, which were "ex- cessive." The tax would be imposed on income after expenses and federal taxes have been paid. Mr. Taylor said the plan, to go before the party's annual convention next year, would encourage exploration because as companies found more oil they would earn greater income. He also said exploration could be encouraged by rebating the tax to oil com- panies which reinvest their in- come in Alberta. Oil industry representatives at the policy conference said the plan was simplistic but had potential for further study. "At least it will allow the oil companies the right to go out and find the oil and sell it before the government demands its pound of said an industry spokesman. Warren Blackman, a University of Calgary economist, told the policy ses- sion that oil royalties should be abolished or set at a very low rate because most Alber- tans had made no sacrifices to develop the natural resource industry. "They made no sacrifice and no investment, thus they should have no reward." In another area of the ten- tative party platform, Mr. Taylor said the Progressive Conservative government's attempts to establish petrochemical plants in Alberta would cause nothing but headaches. vants should be brought under the Alberta Labor Act and given "the same rights as other labor groups in the province." He also said the province must take steps to provide native peoples with ample job opportunities in areas where they have a natural attitude, such as wildlife and timber management, conservation and agribusiness. CALGARY (CP) Oil com- panies have cancelled one- third of seismic contracts since the Nov. 18 budget, the Canadian Society of Explora- tion Geophysicists (CSEG) reported Monday. Value of cancelled seismic contracts, measured in crew months, was estimated at million by CSEG presi- dent John Harding. The oil industry has called the budget "double taxation" for disallowing the deduction of provincial royalty payments from federal cor- porate tax. The average value of a crew month of seismic contract is Mr. Harding said. The CSEG report followed a survey by the Canadian Association of Oilwell Drilling Contractors last Friday that million worth of drilling contracts has been lost in British Columbia and Alberta as a result of the budget. The Daily Oil Bulletin said the losses by the seismic crews and the drilling contractors are the "tip of the iceberg" as these two are usually the first to feel the effects of spending cutbacks by the oil industry. WATCH AND WAIT FOR SHELDONS PROMOTION SALE 1 DAY ONLY THURSDAY, DEC. 12th 516 3rd Avenue South Next Door to Bank of Montreal NICK TAYLOR "The correct approach is to finance petrochemical plants in other parts of the country and supply the natural resources for the plants. In this manner, Alberta will profit through investments in the plants but will not suffer from the myriad of headaches caused by a huge influx of workers and the resulting pollution problems." The platform also said long- term financing should be available to municipalities so they can "plan and set up long-term goals." Growth in Alberta should be decentralized to improve the quality of life in both large urban centres and small towns.
