The new agreement will bring the producing oil king- doms an additional billion in U.S. funds, rising to bil- lion by 1975, experts predict. The impact of the price in- crease, oil industry sources in Alberta say, will be felt around the world all the way from the Persian Gulf to Alberta. Calgary oilman Carl Nickle said the Tehran agreement is to scare the pants off politicians and I hope the pub- lic" in Western countries. It was signed by the world's ma- I jor oil companies and the Or- I ganization of Petroleum Ex- porting Countries, hours before i an OPEC deadline. "It will make them realize." said Mr. Nickle, "that there is no security of supply from overseas. "OPEC countries are in the driver's 5eat and they will con- tinue to use their power to gain as much revenue from oil as tiicv can get away with.1' lie added that they could use ihe threat of cutting off sup- plies to gain farther price in- creases and it was in the eco- nomic interest ol the West to ensure future cutoffs will not cripple industry. The higher prices might be bad news to consumers, but it could mean good news to thB Canadian oil industry by stim- ulating new exploration and de- velopment activity.

BOX 999 FORT MACLEOD, ALTA, Three million blackbirds will be frozen to death Greyhound revenue up CALGARY (CP) Earnings and gross revenue of Grey- hound Lines of Canada Ltd. and its subsidiaries rose during 1970 from the 1969 levels des- pite a slight drop in the final quarter. Earnings were or 83 cents a share on a gross of compared with 141.383 or 68 cents a share on a gross of in 1969. Fourth quarter net income was compared with and ihe company at- tributed the drop to a work stoppage at Motor Coach In- dustries Ltd. which was not re- solved until January. In early 1970, Greyhound ac- quired the Coachways System and earnings from its opera- tion were included in the latest figures but 1969 revenues were not adjusted MILAN, Tenn. United States Army is plan- ning to freeze to death three million or so blackbirds that took up residence two years ago at the Milan arsenal. Paul LeFebvre of the U.S. department of interior said Tuesday the plan calls for the birds to be sprayed with two detergent-like chemicals that will dissolve the body oils on the birds' feathers, resulting in a rapid loss of body heat. i Ken Garner, state superyi- i sor of the division of wildlife I services, said the plan is based on the theory that rapid j loss of body heat is fatal to j birds. I The experiment is being I worked on by the army, the I U.S. department of interior i and the division of wildlife re- search of the U.S. bureau of spcrt fisheries and wildlife. Maj. James I. Lowe, com- mander of the arsenal, said he lias received no objections to the plan from Gibson County health officers and other government officials with whom he has talked. Beef futures WINNIPEG (CP) Trade on the Winnipeg beef futures mar- ket was active Monday wilh trades in all futures at 10 to 50 points lower than previous close levels.

LeFebvre said the plan calls for the birds to be sprayed from an airplane or. a night with subfreezing tempera- tures. The project will not be a hazard to other wildlife, Le- Febvre said, because the chemicals used are nontoxic and decompose in a few days with no known residual effect. CPR agents' removal is suspended OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Transport Commission has suspended an order allow- ing Canadian Pacific Railway Co. to remove 56 agents, nine caretakers and four caretaker- agents from Saskatchewan sta- tions and four agents and three caretakers from stations in Al- berta. The commission said it has received an application from the province of Saskatchewan for a review of the order.
