Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 17, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta THE IETHDRIDGC HERALD Thursday, December 17, japan's aid in developing coal unparalleled OTTAWA (t'l'i Japanese interest in developing the Cana- dian coal industry is unparal- leled considering (lie usual hesi- laney Japan shows toward fin- involvement in developed countries, a member of the Brit- ish Columbia energy board said Wednesday. John James Southward of Vancouver, provincial commis- sioner at Expo 70 in Japan, told I he Canadian transport commis- sion Japan (eels Canada is one v? the "few remaining sources "f high quality, low-volatile cok- ing coal" needed in the Japa- nese steel industries. Mr. Soullnvorth predicted that Japan will need 20 to 25 million tons of Canadian coal to meet annual requirements by 1975. The country expects to import some 45 million tons of' it from Australia and between 25 and "9 million Ions from the United vSuiles. Additional supplies of nbonf M million Ions would be required from other countries. II o w eve r. Mr. Soulhworth said, supplies from all sources but Australia are "considered I tinsure." Japan was haunted by the "spectre of a diminishing vol- ume of low-volitile coal." Canada was viewed by Japan as a potentially strong supplier of coking coal but the Japanese 'ire apprehensive aboul such factors as rail transportation of coal and loading and unload- ing arrangements. Mr. South- worth said. Despite their cautious ap- proach, Japanese steel produ- cers feel Canada can become a "supplier on which to base fu- ture expansion of the steel in- dustry.'' The onus was on Canada to put itself in a "first-class sell- er's position." Mr. Southworth was appear- ing before the commission on behalf of the B.C. government, supporting a bid by the Koote- nay and Klk Railway Co. to build a railway from coal fields in southwestern B.C. to the B.C.-Montana border. Kootenay and Elk would use the proposed 81-mile line to carry coal to Montana, where it would be shipped by the Bur- lington Northern Railway across northwestern United Stales and back into B.C. to the huge port at Robert's Bank for shipment lo Japan. At present, only CP Rail serves the Kootenay coal min- ing area and transports the coal through Canada to the coast. Kootenay and E 1 k contend that a second railroad in the area would provide shippers with a choice of carriers and competitively lower rales. The British Columbia govern- ment "considers the Kootenay and Elk Railway a necessary factor" in marketing the prov- ince's coal and other resources, B.C. said in a brief to the com- mission. CP Rail is opposing the appli- cation on the grounds that it can handle adquately Uie ship- ping requirements for the area at a competitive price. The story of good cops NEW YORK (AP) Be- cause three policemen found eviction proceedings not in keeping with the Christmas spirit, two families in Miami and an elderly couple in New York City have a place to stay today. Miami police sergeant Wil- liam Kimbro donated the S.'5li nest egg he'd saved for Christmas liquor to pay for motel rooms for two families, including four children, he helped evict. Two Manhattan patrolmen, moved by the plight of Sam Labeiko, 85, and his wife Lizi, 80, held up their evication on a technical point and then passed the hat to help raise Hie overdue renl money. The Labcikos. who had lived in their Lower East Side apartment for 33 years, were being evicted because they owed the landlord ?155. The landlord bad raised the rent ?10 lo 546.80 a month and their social security money and Sam's pension wouldn't stretch that far. Patrolman Thomas Fin- neran, 20. and his partner, Bob Borowski, 29, were as- signed to stand by while a marshal evicted the couple. They decided to help. They sent the marshal pack- ing, returned to their station house and got a donation of from each of the 53 policemen on duty. Back at the aparlmenl, Sam had enough to make up difference. In Miami Sgt. Kimbro said he gave up his money to help the families because "I'm black, 1 like kids and it won't hurt me to stay sober over Christmas." The two families were evicted from an apartment building Tuesday as the result of a rent strike by Negro ten- ants. Kimbro look Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Crawford and Mr. and Mrs. Edward Small to a molej and guaranteed payment of 53C for two night's lodging.
