Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 14, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 14, 1973 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - H Northern oil town expects big increase in population FORT McMURRAY, Alta. (CP) - This northeastern Alberta town, the hub of development for the Athabasca oil sands, is expected to nearly double its population with the help of a five-year development plan announced by the provincial government. Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell told a public meeting the government will act as the developer of Fort McMurray to meet its immediate and long-term needs. He outlined an agreement "with the town administrators, permitting maximum development of the town which is expected to increase its population to between 14,000 and 15,000 from the present 8,100. "There are many indications that there will be considerable number of plants establishing in the region as well as supportive industries. "The environment will be dramatically, changed; in fact, rebuilt. While this is going on, the communications and transportation centre is likely to be Fort McMurray." Mr. Russell said the region 230 miles northeast of Edmonton never has had effectively planned development and a similar lack of research and planning of the town has resulted in a land and housing crisis. The government will spend an estimated $8 million to $10 million on land assembly, engineering studies and and development of the non - profit, self-sustaining project. The town is to receive a levy of $500 for each lot and the Alberta Housing Corp. will act as the government's agent In development of a new subdivision. R. G. McFarlane, acting director of the crown corporation, has been appointed deputy minister with the office of program co-ordination and a special local co-ordinator also will be appointed.

This, despite the situation in which the government in Ottawa has still not officially decided whether Canada wants to follow the U.S. lead in controlling auto emissions or whether there is a case for having Canadian emission controls less stringent than American ones. Federal Transport Minister Jean Marchand has said outside the Commons that a decision is expected "soon," probably within a matter of weeks But experts in the environment atad transport departments in Ottawa say it now looks like events and the car manufacturers have already made the decision themselves: and that is that emission controls for Canadian cars must of necessity be the same as those for American cars. These experts add that even if Canada were to decide to have less stringent emission control regulations for 1975 and 1976, Canadian car buyers would save little if any money. First, many, if not most of the emission control devices are being designed right into the engines by car manufacturers Second, even where there are parts that could easily and technically be removed, and the catalyst oxidizers planned for 1976 cars could be an example, Camiadians will end up paying for the development and tool-ing-up costs anyway, the experts say. Both, it seems, are side-effects of the auto pact, whereby domestic and U.S. auto manufacturers make cars for the North Americam market. Dr. S. O. Winthrop, head of the air pollution control directorate in the environment department, says that he doubts either Canadian-based or American-based car mjanufacturers would want to make separate car for Canada. He said that he suspects auto makers have already passed the point of no-return as far as designing their 1975-76 models are concerned and as far as incorporating any changes for the Canadian market are concerned. He said he would guess the car makers have already been forced to "freeze their designs" by the need to build and test prototypes to see if their latest designs will in fact meet the U.S. emission controls for 1975 and 1976. Some groups in Canada have been arguing that pollution is not as bad in Canada as it is in the U.S. and that the cold weather conditions make it more difficult for proposed emission control systems to work properly anyway. As a result, they have argued New York Times Service 'Hat man remanded MEDICINE HAT (CP) -Ronald McMillan, 38, of Medicine Hat was remanded to April 13 for psychiatric observation when he appeared in court Tuesday on a charge of non-capital murder. McMillan was charged after the body of his stepson, Stuart Cramer, 17, was found early Sunday. Coroner E. G. F. Skinner said Cramer died as a result of head injuries. for less stringent controls in Canada, at least for the present. Meanwhile, federal experts have argued that air pollution in Canadian cities is or will soon be just as bad as air pollution in U.S. cities, and that therefore similar controls on emissions are needed. In 1970, for example, vehicles were responsible for 57 per cent of the air pollution in Canada, entironnment department figures reveal. If Canada does in fact follow the U.S. lead-and it now seems to have little if any choice-the following reductions would be required: nitrogen oxides reduced from the present three grams per vehicle mile to 0.4 grams per vehicle mile by 1976; hydrocarbons reduced from 3.4 grams now to 0.41 grams by 1S75, with the same for 1976; and carbon monoxide reduced from 39 grams now to 3.4 grams per vehicle mile in 1975, and the same in 1976. The 1976 reductions would represent a drop of more than 90 per cent in emissions of all three Contaminants in 1976 model cars compared to pre-control, pre-1968 cars. It will also mean, one should add, increased cost, increased fuel consumption and increased starting difficulties for most cars. BONN - Twenty-four years ago Helmut Schmidt submitted bachelor of economics thesis entitled, "The Japanese currency reform in comparison to the German currency reform." It was accepted by the university of his native Hamburg with the grade "good." Now at 54 and as finance minister of West Germany, Schmidt is again dealing with currency reform. And again he appears to rate the grade "good." He brings to his job experience as a politician, organizer and manager: most recently as reformist defense minister of the last legislative term, previously as lively floor leader of his Social Democratic Party and earlier as the official responsible for interior affaire in Hamburg during a critical flood. They called him "Schmidt-Schnauze"-big mouth Schmiidt -when he was a young Parliamentary deputy in the Bude-stag, paying mocking respect to his ability as an extemporaneous speaker. Lately he has been called "Schmidt Schnieke" - Schmidt the neat.. He is a wiry 5 feet 6 inches, wears sporty clothes and has a shock of dark brown hair parted on the left. He was born Dec. 23, 1918 the son of a teacher in Hamburg's worker district of Barm-bek. His parents sent him to the progressive Lichtwark High School, where he met Annelore (Lolki) Glastf*, the daugl*er of a Communist. She. later became Mrs. Schmidt. She is a teacher. The Schmidts have daughter, Susanne. Like most of his contemporaries, he was inducted into the Hitler youth and later the Reich Labor Corps, and finally into the Wehrmacht. In World war II he was an anti - aircaft gunner. He saw service in the Soviet Union and at the Battle of the Bulge, ending the war as a First Lieutenant with an Iron Cross in a British prison camp. His wartime experience led Schmidt to the reconstituted Social Democratic Party. He became chairman of its student organization in 1947. But this did not turn him away from the military entirely. A decade later he joined the Federal Army as a reserve officer. His specialty in the Bude-stag, which ho entered at age 34 in 1953, was defense policy. He rapidly became his party's outstanding spokesman on the subject, later writing a widely read book on nuclear deterrents. Schmidt rates as a right-winger in his party and serves on its executive board. He lives simply. He painted his own weekend house in Schleswig - Holstein in the party color - red. At home he reads (up to 15 books a month), and plays the organ. He has been fighting a serious thyroid disease for the last year, trying to maintain his 18-hour-a-day working pace.
