Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 8, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 UNITED MOTORS Jackson promises to pay more attention to Canada CO. LTD. Weather Herald Washington Bureau WASHINGTON Senator Henry M. Jackson Friday promised that if he were- president he would pay more attention to Canada. The senator from Washington State made the remark after a luncheon here at which he made his first for- mal speech as a candidate for the Democratic party nomina-. tion next year. Jackson was answering a question about U.S. policy to- ward Latin America, which he criticized. "Even our neighbor to the have taken them for he said. "And yet their importance to us, I think, is enormous." Jackson said if he were president he would put more effort into seeking better cooperative relationships with the Western hemisphere nations. "We must really come forth with some better he said. As a senator from a state bordering on British Colum- bia, and as an energy specialist, Jackson has recently been following re- lations with Canada closely. He has been lobbying the U.S. state department for a greater display of concern about Canada's energy policies. He and fellow Washington senator, Warren Magnuson, recently fired off a telegram to State Secretary Henry Alberta doctors accept fee plan Pricipililion H High Prissure L Low Preuuri Cold Front Wirm Front WARMER TEMPERATURES EXPECTED Synopsis A disturbance is moving south along the Mackenzie Valley this morning.

Under the agreement, the commission's schedule of benefits for medical services increases by 7.2 per cent effective March 1. Dr. R. E. Hatfield of Calgary, president of the association, said in a news release Friday that "because of rapidly rising overhead costs, the increase cannot be directly translated to net in- come or take home pay for Alberta doctors." The government offer was presented to AMA members by a mail ballot which was counted Friday. The associa- tion said the constitutional re- quirement that such an offer be approved by more than two thirds of the members voting was met. Syncrude cost said misleading EDMONTON (CP) Premier Peter Lougheed agreed with Reg Basken, president of the Alberta Federation of Labor, Friday that the total cost-of the Syncrude project had been misinterpreted by the press. The premier, in a letter to Mr. Basken, said "we are both in accord" that statements by Mr. Basken, quoted Thursday from Ottawa, were subject to an "unfortunate mis- interpretation." Mr. Basken was quoted say- ing the cost of the Syncrude project in the Athabasca oil sands northeast of Edmonton would be to million above the present billion es- timate. Mr. Lougheed said the total cost, discussed previously with Mr. Basken, was "somewhere between" and million. "This estimate includes the estimated cost of million for the power plant and the pipeline. It also includes the estimated cost of infrastruc- ture that the provincial government will provide in terms of housing, utilities, highways and bridges, which will vary between and Mr. Lougheed said in the letter. "This is how the total of the over-all project was referred to as having an estimated cost .of between and billion." The premier vsaid "as far as the extraction plant and related mining facilities are concerned, the estimated cost is billion, hot-between and billion. Baby death inquest set HYTHE (CP) Ah inquest has been called into the Jan. 21 strangling death of a 13 month old infant at Hythe Hospital, a spokesman for the provincial coroner's office said Friday. Bruce Campbell, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alex Campbell of Kelly Lake, B.C., was a patient at the hospital in this community, 45 miles northwest of Grande Prairie, when he apparently became entangled in restraining equipment. The investigating coroner gave the cause of death as strangulation by asphyxiation. RULED ENGLAND Oliver Cromwell, a com- moner, ruled England with the title of Lord Protector of the Realm. The increase represents an interim adjustment to an ex- isting 27-month agreement between the government and the AMA. The agreement ends Dec. 31, 1975. Dr. Hatfield saiJ the association will begin negotiating with the govern- ment in July for the next agreement, to be effective Jan. 1, 1976. The association expects the negotiations to "lead to a cor- rection of the considerable erosion of the doctor's purchasing power which has occurred since 1973 when the present agreement was Dr. Hatfield said. He added that this erosion of purchasing power will con- tinue "despite the present in- crease." Alberta doctors received an. average gross income of 040 last year, the -Alberta Health Care Insurance Com- mission said Thursday in its annual report. At Regina meanwhile Stirl- ing McDowell, mediator in the dispute between the Saskatchewan government and provincial doctors over fee schedules, announced Fri-. day that the two parties have reached agreement. He said the agreement provides for a 15.75-per cent increase in payment schedules from the 1973 schedules. No increases had been agreed on last year and the ones announced Friday are effective Jan. 1, 1975. The schedules represent what the government operated provincial medical insurance plan will pay to doc- tors. Doctors may operate out- side the plan, billing patients directly for higher amounts while the insurance plan reim- burses the patient up to its payment schedule. Dateline Alberta Teacher pay vote set CALGARY (CP) Negotiators for the Calgary separate school system and its teachers announced Friday the signing of a ten- tative contract agreement. A spokesman for Local 55 of the Alberta Teachers Associa- tion said members will vote on the agreement Wednesday. John Currie, chairman of the board's negotiating com- mittee, said chances of ratification by the board "look good." Last year the Catholic school system's teachers got a pay increase. And negotiators for the board and teachers in the public school system resume contract talks Monday through a conciliation com- issioher appointed by the government. Colorful figure dies EDMONTON (CP) One of the most colorful, and un- successful, figures of local political history has died in Drug charge dismissed .JASPER (CP) A charge of trafficking in cocaine against Dal Grauer, 29, was dismissed Friday in provin- cial court.

The senators were harshly critical of B.C. efforts to boost the price of exported gas and of curtailments in the supply of B.C. gas being sold in Washington state. The same two senators also have urged Kissinger to press Canada to ameliorate its pha- seout of crude oil exports to the U.S., warning that on the west coast this could only mean an increase in tanker traffic substituting Alaska and imported oil for the diminishing Canadian supplies.
