Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 2, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Saturday, February 2, 10.4 royalty draws rebuke from Notley U.K. hopes to avoid brink of collapse 'Muddling through9 basic secret weapon EDMONTON (CP) Grant Notley, leader of the Alberta New Democratic Party, said Friday the Progressive Conservative government of the province is not taking advantage of a strong position in its new royalties for natural gas "Why should the gas producers receive 50 per cent of the price increases on cheap natural gas already in he asked in a prepared statement. "There is no excuse to provide windfall profits on cheap natural gas already provided." He was commenting on the government's announcement Thursday that royalties on gas will increase on a sliding scale as the price of gas increases. The royalties, currently averaging 16 per cent, would increase from 22 per cent for the lowest-priced gas to 65 per cent for that portion of gas prices over 72 cents per cubic feet. Mr. Notley compared the new royalty scale to actions by other provinces. "In British Columbia, the provincial government taking 100 per cent of any price increase over 31 cents per TO: Benefit Travel and Charter Tours Ltd. A 17th Avtt. S.W., CALGARY LONDON, AMSTERDAM.

Saskatchewan is applying the same principle with respect to their surcharge on oil. "Against this background, the decision of the Lougheed government to hand the companies 50 per cent of the windfall price increases, is a serious miscalculation which could cost the Alberta treasury a loss of between and million annually Mr. Notley said the government was only "paying lip service to the small company in his royalty scheme." "It will provide the major corporations with solid cash for their discovered reserves as well as their lucrative profit-sharing arrangements with smaller companies through farm-out agreements." It will cost the treasury "an enormous amount" to cushion the natural gas prices for Alberta, he said. "If the wellhead price rises to 72 cents per cubic feet it will cost the treasury million annually to keep the natural gas prices at their present levels.

"A" North By George Ivan Smith The Christian Science Monitor LONDON, England Is Britain on the brink of collapse? Recent instances of labour disruption, power stoppages, and political unrest make is seem so. Certainly it would b1 idle to pretend that Britain, like other nations, does not have its lunatic fringes on the left and right, influenced by bigotry and seeking confrontation. There is a present danger that some may try to inject such conflict into an election campaign and fight on the spurious issue of "who runs instead of on the issue of inflation, where it squarely rests. Such medieval jousting will have little real political effect. In the solid British middle there is a powerful political rudder that has steered this ancient vessel through stormier waters than these The basic secret weapon of the British is a process called "muddling through." The phrase is highly misleading because there is no muddling involved. It represents a series of observations and actions by hawk-eyed Britons who study the behavior of every authority from local council to Parliament, and they do it with the forbidding earnestness of a bird watcher. It is designed to keep careful checks and balances on authority at every level. Mainly it affects the body politic as a whole and could save Britain from the disaster now of allowing confrontation rather than conciliation to govern actions. Yet one must shyly admit that the process sometimes strays into eccentricities, even to putting the welfare of horses and dogs before that of human beings. But the process should be allowed those few oddities because its power for good is so great in major political directions when Britain is at another critical turning point.

Certainly confrontations are attempted by individuals and groups at various times but are not regarded as a normal party of British political life and seldom have lasting or effective results. Clearly there are sharp differences on many party political issues but if you scratch a Conservative, Liberal, or Labor Party member enough you find a Briton. At the end of the second World War Churchill stood as the giant who had led his peoples to an astounding victory, yet he lost the 1945 election. His greatness was unquestioned, but the British were not voting for a man but for a new order. The years between the World Wars had been filled with the tragedy of unemployment, the dole, silent women standing at the pit-head to learn who survived the disaster, shoeless children West Indies warned: 'There is a lineup9 YELLOWKNIFE, N.W.T. (CP) The people of Canada's frozen North have a message for the balmy West Indian islands of Grand Turk and Caicos which want to become Canada's llth province: "There is a lineup." The Yukon and Northwest Territories have been seeking provincial status for decades. But not everyone in the North begrudges Grand Turk and Caicos provincial status. David Searle, member of the Northwest Territories council for Yellowknife, says he intends to rise on a point of privilege to speak of the matter. He says he will ask the federal government to warn the West Indians islands not to become a Canadian territory. Auctioneers Association of Alberta 7th Annual CHARITY AUCTION SALE TUESDAY.

All had to share the perils of war and were drawn more closely together The mixing of classes and the evacuation of city children to safe areas gave many their first understanding of the social injustices that had been practiced in their own "green and pleasant A new Jerusalem was called for, and in the postwar years social changes were% made that would have been impossible a few years earlier. In more rigid societies some such changes could have produced violent revolution. Obviously all of the promises have not been fulfilled, and, as the alliances of the war years recede, powerful resistance has manifested itself. However, a very substantial pattern of change has taken place that cannot be altered. Indeed, the process began in earlier centuries and particularly in the Industrial Revolution and its aftermath. The American philosopher Emerson said of Britain in a speech at Manchester in 1847 that "in storm of battle calamity, she has a secret vigor and a pulse like a cannon." He also quoted the phrase from Sophocles: "The dice of God are always loaded." He was making the point that any imbalance carries with it a demand to redress the imbalance under the law of cause and effect Britain's Industrial Revolution was harsh enough in human terms drastically to overturn the whole society. Lured by the siren of a new prosperity, people came in from the clean streams and the glowing fells to live in muck, murk, and misery Deep disenchantment possessed them, but they did not take to the streets to topple masters who had put women and children into mills and mines. Instead they followed the early Christian socialists and the leaders of the new movements for unions and adult education. They were motivated not by revenge but by a fervent desire to elevate the human race. They were not "reds under the nor were the workers alone. Their efforts were joined by many so-called upper-and middle-class citizens wise enough to recognize that such abnormal imbalance was a threat to society as a whole. Of course it all took time. Decades passed before workers had even a small fraction of bargaining power, and in point of fact it is only in the last few years that the bargaining strength of labour has reached a point at which it simply must be taken into account senpulsy if there is to be conciliation rather than confrontation. At the same time, social gains since the second World War, which the worker thought were won, have run like sand through the fingers of inflation. Property speculators and many others have made overnight fortunes and widened the gap again NOTICE TO NON-RATEPAYERS RESIDENT TAKE NOTICE THAT persons resident in the City of Lethbridge who are not registered property owners but who are Canadian Citizens or British subjects of the full age of eighteen years and who will have resided in the City of Lethbridge or any area an- nexed to the City for a period of the twelve months which immediately precede the 16th day of October, 1974, may make application at the Assessment De- partment in the City Hall, Lethbridge, to have their names placed on the List of Electors during the period from the 1st day of January to the 25th day of September, 1974, during normal working hours of each day except Saturday, Sunday and any Public Holiday.
