Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, 1J, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 DatolliM Albm-ta Pension cheques boosted EDMONTON (CP) Alberta's retired public ser- vice employees, teachers and MLA's will receive a cost of living allowance in their January pension cheques, the Alberta government announc- ed today. Some persons will benefit from the move. Pensioners who retired on or before Dec. 31, 1973, will receive an increase of 11 per cent. Those who retired between Jan. 1 and March 31 of this year will receive an 8.3-per-cent adjustment. Those who retired between April and Dec. 31 of this year will gain a six per cent in- crease. Police sign contract EDMONTON (CP) City police have signed a one year contract providing for a 15 per cent wage increase effective Jan. 5, 1975, George Hughes, chief city com- missioner, said Wednesday. The majority of the force, who are in the four year con- stable range, will receive a salary of annually un- der the contract, Mr. Hughes said. Police forces in other parts of the country are expected to obtain settlements in a similar range, although "we're probably the first to have settled on a contract for 1975." Wheat Pool slate named CALGARY (CP) G. L. Harrold of Lament, A. J. Macpherson of Delia and 0. K. Rosenberger of Balzac have been re-elected president, first and second vice presidents of the Alberta Wheat pool respec- tively, it was reported today. Mr. Harrold has been presi- dent since 1957, while Macpherson and Rosenberger were re-elected for their fourth terms. Foster parents sought EDMONTON (CP) A sur- vey commissioned by the provincial government shows that more than one third of adult Albertans are willing to become foster parents, and that the most effective way to recruit foster parents is through other foster parents. Ruth Ann Yardley, public communications director with the department of social development, says the province will make more use of foster parents in recruiting new foster parents as a result of the survey.

Alberta's energy needs to reduce export re hoping the holiday brings you many joys shared with loved ones. It has been a pleasure to serve you. From Management and sun at UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD. "Serving you over a quarter century" 302 3rd Ave. S. Phone 327-2805 CALGARY (CP) Alberta's expanding secondary in- dustry, especially the petrochemical industry, is expected to re- quire more than three times the energy resources over the next 30 years than previously estimated, toe Alberta Energy Resources Conservation Board said Wednesday. The level of energy resources available for export will gradually decline as Alberta's own needs grow, board chairman Dr. George Govier told a news conference on which the board's latest estimates of Alberta's long-term energy resource re- quirements were released. The report forecasts that in the period 1975-2004, Alberta's total energy resource requirements would be the equivalent of 86.2 trillion cubic feet of natural gas nearly double the last es- timate prepared only a year ago. The board's last estimates, covering the period 1972-2001, said Alberta's own requirements during that 30-year forecast period would be the equivalent of 43.5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. The new estimates include energy resources equivalent to 50.2 trillion cubic feet of natural gas for industrial use, com- pared to 14.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent in the last report. Of the total energy resources required for the period 1975- 2004, crude oil, including synthetic crude from the oil sands, would account for the equivalent of 32.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas or 5.7 billion barrels expressed in its natural un- its. In the last estimates, Alberta's own needs of crude oil were 1.8 billion barrels for the 1972-2001 period. Dr. Govier said the new estimate of Alberta's crude oil re- quirements including 1 billion barrels earmarked for the in- dustry in Alberta was based on the assumption that more refined petroleum products, rather than crude oil in its unrefin- ed form would be exported in the future. Other resources of energy required by Alberta during the 1975-2004 period, as estimated by the board, are: (previous es- timates for the 1972-2001 period in brackets) trillion cubic feet of natural gas (19.8 million tons of coal (719 million barrels of ethane (not calculated as a separate item in the last million barrels of propane (180 million barrels of butanes (113 quadrillions of foot pounds (or the equivalent of 1.64 trillion cubic feet of natural gas) of hydro power (425 In both reports, nuclear energy, which the board said Alberta does not have a significant amount, was not included. Petrochemical project study pact signed Come to Calgary Hard on the hen Hobby farmer Joe Nielssen of Kingston, Ont., can't explain the success of his hens in laying eggs as large as three inches to the axes. Here one looks on with what appears to be disbelief. Satellite city proposed CALGARY (CP) A land development corporation has proposed to build a satellite town just north of the city. Abbey Glen Property Corp. said Wednesday that the proposed town will be built on 6-Vz sections of land which was included in the City of Calgary's proposal to annex 125 square miles. The comprehensive annexa- tion proposal was overwhelmingly defeated in a plebiscite held during the Oc- tober civic election. An Abbey Glen spokesman said despite the results of the plebiscite, the company still believes that its land has the "finest development poten- tial." He said the company is will- ing to have the proposed com- munity as a "town in town" part of Calgary politically and for taxation purposes, but physically separate and self sufficient. City planning director George Steber, who supported the comprehensive annex- ation, said he was not surpris- ed to see Abbey Glen come up .with an alternative to annexa- tion for land development. He did not elaborate. Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell said he was aware of the proposal but his department has made it clear that the provincial govern- ment wants to see the expan- sion of small, existing com- munities. EDMONTON (CP) Agreement on a one year study to examine the possibili- ty of building a major petrochemical development based on Alberta's oil and gas resources was signed Wednes- day between the provincial government and Mitsubishi Petrochemical Co. Ltd. of Japan. The study, to be undertaken jointly with the Alberta Research Council, will ex- amine the possibility of ex- tacting both olefin and aromatics from hydrocarbon resources in Alberta. The study agreement, sign- ed by Provincial Industry Minister Fred Peacock, Dr. E. J. Wiggins of the Alberta Research Council, and Tadeo Yano, Mitsubishi executive managing director, will also explore a proposal to build an Watch out for those beavers RIMBEY, Alta. (CP) Beavers in two areas of Central Alberta are carrying a disease that can be fatal to cattle and cause high fever in adults, Guy Kerr, the district agriculturalist here, said Saturday. Mr. Kerr, in an interview, said a positive identification of a bacterial disease called tuleremia has been made in beavers in the Alderflats and Evansburg areas.

Ltd., At- torney General Merv Leitch announced yesterday. The firm, incorporated as a trust company in Alberta, collapsed in the late 1960s. Under an agreement, desposits with provincially incorporated trust companies are insured by the federal agency provided the provin- cial government is prepared to guarantee the insured funds, Mr. Leitch said. The minister said the pay- ment to the federal agency does not necessarily represent a loss to the Alberta govern- ment because Security Trust is being liquidated and assets distributed to creditors. Mr. Leitch said the com- pany has substantial assets. However, he said it will not be known fcr some time whether creditors, including the Alberta government, will be reimbursed in total. 3 DAY SALE!
