CALGARY Three natural gas transmission and distribu- tion companies have joined Al- berta Gas Trunk Line Company limited in an Arctic gas trunk study group, which will con- duct a program of intensive studies designed to determine the engineering and economic feasibility of the early comple- tion of an Arctic gas pipeline. The three firms, each a po- tential user of the gas trans- port service proposed by Al- berta Gas Trunk, are the Co- lumbia Gas System, Northern Natural Gas Company and Texas Eastern Transmission Corporation. The study program calls for a comprehensive evaluation of every major aspect of the pipe- line proposal, from engineering and economics to environment- al protection. The proposal, announced by Alberta Gas Trunk in May, is to create a large-capacity gas transport artery connecting the Pnidhoe Bay oil and gas field in Alaska with existing gas transport facilities in Alberta and thence to North American gas markets. Each of the three firms which have joined the study group is assessing for itself the potential of this proposed arrangement, in terms of moving Arctic and Northern Gas to its own par- ticular market area in the United States. The three are, therefore, contributing to the cost of expanding the techni- cal research, field investiga- tions and engineering design work which was begun by Al- berta Gas Trunk in the spring of 1970. The program, which has reached the million-dollar level in 1970, will now call for the additional expenditure of sev- eral million dollars during 1971 on the new technical and re- Your NEW Authorized' Dealer JEEP" TRUCKS AND STATION WAGONS UNITED MOTORS CO.

The program includes engi- neering studies which will pro- vide information necessary to application of the transporta- tion corridor concept announced in August by the Canadian gov- ernment. S. R. Blair, president of Al- berta Gas Trunk, said in an- nouncing the formation of this Arctic gas trunk study group, that his company is continuing to provide the sponsorship for the Canadian segment of the proposed project, and that the three gas companies have neither made nor received any commitment as to equity par- ticipation in the Canadian por- tion of the pipeline system. The commitments by the participat- ing companies are presently limited only lo activities of the study group. Mr. Blair stressed that the basic policy of the project pro- posal, from inception, has been that equity control of the Cana- dian line remain in Canadian hands. Alberta Gas Trunk has said that as the proposal ma- tures it will, from time to time, invite equity participation by oilier Canadian companies pos- sessing appropriate interests, skills or resources. He said that the prime fea- ture of the project is provision of a general transport service available lo all markets within economic reach of Arctic, gas, and it has an added advantage in that it can be integrated with facilities already in operation. By using these facilities, Mr. Blair said, capital expenditure will be held lo a minimum and higher operating security will be achieved. The companies envisage the study gorup as providing a base of technical support and general policy which can con- tribute to industry development.

Rubber bauds rid patients of hemorrhoids TORONTO (CP) A Toronlo doctor says he has a snappy answer lo one of man's most painful ailments. He treats he- morrhoids, or piles, with rubber bands. Hemorrhoids, in fact a form of varicose veins, have unti now obliged sufferers to ivjke the choice between a painful op- eration or putting up with their misery. Dr. William Rudd recently de- scribed to the Ontario chapter of the College of Family Physi- cians his 10-percent success in treating 150 patients using the Barron hemorrhoidectomy Jiti- gallon y them by tying them off. A special tight rubber band is slipped over the hemorrhoid, constricting it at the base, and in about six days the hemor- rhoid falls off with the rubber band. The operation takes place in the doctor's office and requires no anesthetic but hemorrhoids can only be dealt with one at a time, about two weeks apart.

The government "will take a dim view of the matter" if the rate increases can't be justified, he said. "There are some people in the government who are in favor of a takeover." Mr. Ells said he was disap- pointed that the rate increase was announced but he realized that higher accident costs may have a large bearing on it. Dr. Walter Buck, MLA for Clover Bar and also a commit- tee member, said he personally feels rate increases are inevit- able "as people buy more ex- pensive cars, crack them up more often, and kill and injure more people." But he said he felt a rate in- crease of this size should be a matter for the watchdog com- mittee. the largest interconnected nat- ural gas system in the United Stales, and is composed of sub- sidiary companies engaged in natural gas production, storage, transmission and distribution.
