Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 2 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD December 18, 1974 News In brief Cuba embargo end seen WASHINGTON (AP) U.S. State Secretary Henry 'Kissinger was reported Tues- day as willing to support a move in the Organization of American States (OAS) that might lead to an end of the economic and diplomatic em- ibargo against Cuba. Sol Linowitz, a former U.S. ambassador to the OAS, told reporters that Kissinger told the commission on United States Latin American relations that the current U.S. policy concerning Cuba might be changed, perhaps as early as March when inter- American foreign ministers meet in Buenos Aires. Linowitz used a peculiar phrasing. "We were assured by the secretary that the policy now in progress would through another mechanism advance in subsequent meetings, perhaps in Buenos Aires." When asked what he meant, Linowitz speculated that the secretary was indicating a change in the U.S. position to- ward the voting in the OAS. Policeman fund grows MONCTON, N.B. (CP) The funeral of two slain Moncton policemen was to be held today as the city observ- ed four hours of mourning for the officers. A trust fund for their fami- lies, meanwhile, continues to grow as pledges are called in to radio stations. The total was believed to have reached Tuesday. The bodies of Cpl. Aurelle Bourgeois, 47, and Constable Michael O'Leary, 33, were discovered in shallow graves Sunday more than 48 hours after they disappeared while investigating a kidnapping. James Lawrence Hutchison, 43, and Richard Ambrose, 22, were charged Monday with the murder of the policemen and the kid- napping of Raymond Stein, 14. Klansman hearing starts CALGARY (CP) A preliminary hearing into a charge of criminal negligence causing death against the Imperial Wizard of the Alberta branch of the Ku Klux Klan began in provincial court Tuesday. Tearlach (Charlie) Dun- sford Mac A Phearsoin, 25, of Calgary, was charged follow- ing the death of Elias Aguilar Ramirez, 23, of Santa Rosa, Mexico. Ramirez was found shot to death in a Calgary apartment Sept. 12, only a few days after he came to Canada as an immigrant. Ford signs water bill WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford has signed a bill setting up the first U.S. safe drinking-water stan- dards, and environmentalists want its emergency powers invoked in five communities whose water systems may contain cancer-causing chemicals. After Tuesday's bill-signing ceremony, the Environmental Defence Fund asked that emergency powers be used because of the "imminent health hazard" posed by chemicals found in the drink- ing water of New Orleans and Jefferson parish, La.; Evan- sville, Ind.; Cincinnati, Ohio; and Duluth, Minn. Games cost doubled? QUEBEC (CP) Premier Robert Bourassa refused Tuesday to confirm or deny a report that the estimated cost of staging the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal has almost doubled to million. He told the national assembly that a brief on the costs of the Games was scheduled for consideration Tuesday by Montreal city council's executive com- mittee. The national assembly could see it after the ex- ecutive committee had decid- ed its own position. Deaths 4 RUG DRAPES LTD.

Chiefs of four southern Al- berta tribes asked the minister during a two-hour meeting not to go ahead with charges of public mischief laid against Ed Bumstick, Canadian director of the American Indian Movement and Roy Littlechief, president of the Calgary Urban Treaty Alliance. The charges are the first to arise from Indian sit-ins which have taken place across the country. Chief John Snow of the Stoney Indians told reporters that Mr. Buchanan insisted "that the law be respected and that anyone defying the law should be charged." The chiefs were bitter that the minister did not wait to hear what they had to say about the sit-in before laying the charges but Mr. Buchanan found time to meet Calgary Mayor Rod Sykes several times during his Calgary visit to attend a Liberal fund- raising dinner. The mayor was in favor of charges being laid. The chiefs said in a brief that the charges were laid on the advice of senior Indian af- fairs employees in the Calgary office "who obviously had a vested interest to protect themselves." It was the policies of the staff and the way that the programs were administered "which drove our people to such lengths of despair and frustration that we felt the only way to bring attention to the situation was by this form of demonstration." But Chief Snow said he was encouraged by the minister's attitude to other topics of the meeting. "The minister has promised to study our other requests and to reply to them when he visits Alberta reserves next February." interview on public television. Asked by Peter Lisagor of the Chicago Daily News why the U.S. could not apply "reasonable pressure" on Canada and other oil supply- ing nations, Jackson replied: "We sure looked foolish putting the pressure on the Canadians. We asked the Canadians to roll back the price of their oil. Do you know what the Canadians told Us? 'Look, all we're charging is what you permit your producers to get on un- regulated oil.'" He said the U.S. govern- ment should roll back the price it allows domestic producers to charge on cer- tain categories of newly dis- covered oil. The Canadian position "cer- tainly is" justifiable, Jackson said. "I think we have taken an unreasonable position with the Canadians and we got just what we were looking for when we tried to insist that they roll back their price while we roll our prices up." Jackson called for a concerted energy policy in- volving conservation of supplies and development of new energy sources. found shot ST. JOSEPH DU LAC, Que. (CP) Provincial police said a 19-year-old youth is being held for questioning and a 35- year-old man is being sought in connection with the shooting deaths late Tuesday of five members of a family in this community 15 miles northwest of Montreal. The victims were identified as Mrs. Norbert Dumoulin, 82, her son Roger, 49, her daughters, Yvonne, 37, and Lucille Miron, 44, and a son- in-law, Guy Miron, 47. A police spokesman said police were alerted by a fami- ly member who found a car motor running in the driveway and received no answer at the door when he went to visit. The spokesman said the two suspects apparently were holding the three women hostage in the house when the two men of the family caught them by surprise. He said all five victims were beaten and then shot with a revolver. The spokesman said robbery was thought to be the motive because the family was reputed to keep large sums of money in the house. He said the two suspects were known to police. THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The United States dollar plunged on European markets Tuesday, hitting a new low in Zurich, as the price of gold soared. Banking sources cited a number of factors, including the Martinique accord between U.S. President Ford and French President Valery Giscard d'Estaing. The dollar bottomed at 2.53 Swiss francs in Zurich, then recovered slightly. The new low was six centimes below the previous record of 2.59 on Nov. 18 and seven centimes below Monday's closing. At the same time gold mov- ed up sharply, gaining for a Zurich closing of an ounce. Gold closed at in London, up from Monday's as the dollar worsened to 2.3325 to the pound, down from Monday's 2.3310. A rise in gold prices usually pushes the dollar down and the U.S. currency slipped Tuesday as the metal rose. Dealers also said the dollar's trouble resulted from oil- producing countries, which take payment in dollars, diversifying their funds into other currencies. Banking sources cited a variety of factors for the day's activity, including the Mar- tinique accord that governments should be free to value their gold reserves at market prices instead of the TOYING AROUND SANTA ANA, Calif.

(CP) An official of Crestbrook Forest Industries says the firm has been looking for a solution to coloring of the Kootenay River by effluent from the Crestbrook pulp mill at Skookumchuck, about 35 miles north of here. John Hegeman, manager of administration and en- vironmental control, said fish in the river are distasteful to some people, but edible. "I don't think it affects that many he said. He was commenting on charges by Chuck Newcombe, a fish and wildlife branch biologist, that the pollution control branch is not doing its job of requiring the mill to treat its wastes sufficiently. B.C. demands definition of 'fair value' for gas Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA The province of B.C. has demanded an answer from Ottawa by Friday on what constitutes "fair market value" of natural gas. Failure to comply with the demand, a provincial finance spokesman warned Tuesday, will mean the curtailment of natural 'gas exploration in B.C. this winter and a short- fall of up to 500 million m.c.f (thousand cubic feet) in ex- ports to the U.S. next year. The finance official, who at- tended meetings with federal representatives Monday in Ot- tawa, said that the petroleum companies must have a state- ment from the federal finance department by week's end or they will "put all their activi- ties in ice for the winter." At issue in the ultimatum put by the province is a proposal contained in the Nov. 18 federal budget which would tax natural gas producers on the basis of the "fair market value" of their product. In B.C natural gas is retail- ed through a crown-owned company, the B.C. Petroleum Corporation. Under the budget proposal, the private producers would pay federal taxes on what Ottawa con- siders to be the fair value of their product, rather than the actual price received from the provincially owned company. B.C. Petroleum now pays the producers as little as 22 cents per thousand cubic feet for natural gas, which it retails for prices ranging from 58 cents to Premier Dave Barrett maintains that the price now paid by the crown company to the natural gas producers con- stitutes a fair market value. But there is serious question whether the finance depart- ment will accept this assessment. The purpose of the day-long meetings with the B.C. of- ficials was to come to an agreement on market value. B.C. has insisted that the answer be forthcoming by Friday, the date by which the companies say they will have to decide on exploration ac- tivities for the coming winter. The prcvincial spokesman explained that most of the gas exploration in northern B.C. must be undertaken during the winter months because of terrain conditions. When the contentious budget provision was first introduced a federal finance official sug- gested that "fair market value" for purposes of the sec- tion probably would be in the neighborhood of the actual selling price, minus ordinary operating costs. Barrett has said, however, that the price now being paid constitutes the fair price and was arrived at after dis- cussions with Energy Minister Donald Macdonald. The premier added that the two energy f and ve their wires crossed, or else haven't been talking to each other, if they don't accept this position. The B.C. premier, with un- characteristic restraint, said last Friday that there appeared to have been "an honest mistake made by the federal bureaucrats." Greeks elect president ATHENS (AP) Greece's new parliament today elected Michael Stasinopoulos, one of the country's leading legal and academic figures, as provisional president of the Greek republic. The vote in the 300-member parliament was 206-74, with three invalid ballots and eight blanks. Stasinopoulos was chosen by Premier Constan- tine Caramanlis, whose New Democracy party holds 220 seats. Stasinopoulos succeeds Gen. Phaedon Gizikis, who was named by the military dictatorship last year. Caramanlis had delayed Gizikis' retirement until the plebiscite Dec. 8 that voted against the return of the monarchy. A Gift To Remember.
