Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 44 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, December 11, 1974 Interpreting the News aides tackle energy problems WASHINGTON (CP) Be- hind President Ford's current pursuit of new directions for the United States on energy policy, the question of price remains one of the most crucial and complex. It is not just a decision on whether, or how much, to add to the federal government's tax on gasoline as a means of discouraging consumption, energy experts say. There are equally difficult decisions to be made about the price of natural gas and other energy sources, and, even more basically, what the cost of oil should be. While Ford is in Martinique Poet Birney Al Purdy's profile in Weekend Magazine of the Canadian poet with vehement and uncompromising opinions. This Saturday. The Lethbrtdge Herald next weekend seeing French President Valery Discard d'Estaing, discussing the international energy situation among other things, senior U.S. policymakers will be at the presidential retreat in Camp David, Md., conferring on recommendations for Ford's major energy statement. The president is expected to set out his battle plans for energy in a mid-January speech to Congress known as the state of the union address. Like former president Rich- ard Nixon's Project Independ- ence, the Ford program is ex- pected to be aimed essentially at reducing American depend- ence on mercurial foreign supplies of oil. Unlike the Nix- on program, it is expected to try for some realistic goals. The original Project Inde- pendence grandly foresaw U.S. self-sufficiency in oil by 1980. No sooner was the date mentioned, than it was being discredited by Nixon's own energy advisers. Interior Secretary Roger Morton, chief adviser to Ford on energy, said without a trace of a reduction of U.S. imports to one million barrels a day by 1985 is a "very ambitious goal." Morton estimated yesterday that the U.S. is currently spending billion a year on oil imports, most of it going to the Arabs and their oil-cartel allies, whose treasuries are reported to be growing at the rate of billion yearly. It is part of announced United States policy, stressed by almost everyone from State Secretary Henry Kissinger on down, that oil prices must be lowered from the current rate of about a barrel, at a time when anything above was con- sidered extravagant. Like others in the Ford government, Simon no longer cites a specific price. The problem facing Ford and his advisers is to conceive of a price that would not only encourage development in the U.S. of some of the more cost- ly alternatives to Arab oil, but would reduce the extraor- dinary drain on American financial resources until the day when the United States no longer relies on expensive im- ports. The U.S. is pressing for a tough conservation effort by major oil-importing countries as a means of driving down the price of Arab oil. SEEKS COMPETITION Kissinger reasons that if the Arabs and their allies are fac- ed with declining sales to the West and loss of revenues for their increasingly ambitious industrial and military programs, individual members of the cartel will be tempted to abandon the current price in a cut-throat competition to salvage oil sales Sears where Christmas ideas begin Save on our Chalet pool table Our most popular table... for the first time at this low price!
