Concessions sooth energy situation Car dealer fined EDMONTON Park Motors Ltd. was fined a total of Friday after pleading guilty in Provincial Judge's Court to six charges involving falsification of mileage on odometers of used cars. Provincial Judge Carl H. Rolf fined South Park Motors each on two counts of fraud and each on four counts under the Highways Traffic Act. Court was told a 1968 automobile sold by South Park Motors in had its odometer-reading turned back to miles from 800 miles. Other cases involv- ed reductions to from and to from By The CANADIAN PRESS Two sore points in the energy situation were soothed and the federal government is trying to pre- vent others by going right to the root of the the oil-rich Middle East. Two concessions to the needs of others salved the sore points. Premier Allan Blakeney said Saskatchewan will not insist on tit-for-tat concessions from Eastern Canada in return for keeping its oil prices below in- ternational levels. And the na- tional energy board mended fences with Maine by approv- ing export of enough industrial fuel to keep two pulp mills in the state operating through January. But the source of the trouble is the source of the foreign oil on which Eastern Canada is dependent. Production cuts and embargoes imposed by Arab states to isolate Israel have reduced supplies allowed other producing states to raise prices. The external affairs depart- ment announced Friday it would seek approval from Saudi Arabia to establish an embassy Canada's first in an oil-producing Arab and is considering embassies in other Middle East countries. The Canadian ambassador in Lebanon has been doing tri- ple handling relations with Saudi Arabia and Iraq as well. COMBAT CONFUSION Officials saw establishment of an embassy as an attempt to improve communication. There has been confusion over whether Canada is included in the Saudi oil embargo against the United States and others. The federal government's position has been that Canada is not cut but the Arab American Oil Co. has repeatedly told the Canadian companies it supplies that Canada is embargoed.

This is in addition th the 70 million gallons a year the company currently supplies to B.C. INFLA TION BA TTLE TOKYO The Japanese government pro- claimed an economic state of emergency today and called for national effort to combat the oil crisis and overcome spiralling inflation. The proclamation allows the government to invoke powers to control the supply and dis- tribution of oil. A bill approved by the Diet empowers the government to select commodities for price and distribution control. Premier Kakuei Tanaka is- sued a statement calling on the Japanese people to co- operate in the enforcement of the legislation. He left hospital today to at- tend an emergency cabinet meeting which approved the statement. He had been in the hospital since last Saturday for treatment of an ear infec- tion and cold. Government civil servants will keep a sharp watch for hoarding and market- Tanaka said.
