Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta The Lethbridge Herald THIRD SECTION Lethbridge, Alberta, Wednesday, February PAGES 2MO Oil imports flow below expectations v BIG DADDY This locomotive, built by MLW industries at its east- end Montreal plant, is at horsepower, one of the most powerful engnes in the world. It was turned over to CP Rail. Fifty persons face trial over Quebec crisis MONTREAL (CP) Fifty persons are'facing trial to Mont- real as a result of Quebec's Oc- tober crisis, but many cases have been put over to the spring assizes opening March 1. Stephen Cuctdihy, chief Crown attorney for the Montreal dis- trict, said 28 men and women are free on bail and 22 held without bail. In addition, eight persons Russian grain record expected WASHINGTON (AP) Signs point to a record grain crop in Russia last year, the United States agriculture department says. While Russia hasn't yet an- nounced its 1971 grain produc- tion totals, department experts calculate on the basis of recent statements by Soviet officials that the crop will total a record 185 million tons, about 14 mil- lion tons and eight per cent above the previous Russian rec- ord to '1966 and 23 million tons above the 1969 crop. Wheat generally runs at about S3 bushels to a ton. Lending weight to the belief that the Russians had record crops of grata, including wheat, is the fact that Soviet govern- ment purchases of Russian grain in 1970 totalled 73 million tons, of which 54 million tons was wheat. These government supplies 'are used for making flour needed domestically and for export. These purchases were only three per cent short of record purchases in 1966 after ex- tremely poor yields to 1963 and 1965 when the government was hi dire need of grain to rebuild depleted stocks, the department said, but to contrast there was little need for stockbuildtog in 1970 because of large purchases from good 1966 and 1968 crops. Thus, department experts fig- ured, the near-record purchases of 73 million tons last year, compared with 56 million tons to 1969, provided an ample ex- portable surplus. This means that some Rus- sian wheat and other grains will be available for sale this year to Eastern European countries and even to Western Europe. This could affect U.S. sales. "When two countries are of- fering grain to the same mar- ket, there is bound to be some reasoned one depart- ment analyst. "There could be an effect on both the price and quantity sold by a supplier." Soviet government purchases include 54 million tons of wheat and 19 million tons of other grains, compared with 1969 pur- chases of 36 million tons and 20 million tons respectively These figures could indicate sizable amount of wheat woulc be available for export. is great for the golden flavor ot cane-sugar syrup.

Ltd., Rogers Street. Vancouver, B.C. aced charges elsewhere to the rrovmce on charges under the War Measures Act, invoked Oct. 6, and the subsequent Public Jrder (Temporary Measures) Act 1970. These included four to herbrooke, two to Quebec City and one each to the northern communities of Amos and Mont jaurier. The speculation among the public is that proceedings will rag on for many months but Jr. Cuddifay said it is impossi- le to estimate just how long the actions will take. The Kdnap-murder trial of _ 'aul Rose passed the one-month Kiint Monday but reached the estimony-taking stage only last IMday. Jacques Rose, brother of 'aul, Francis Simard and Ber- nard Lortie, who are also charged with non-capital mur- der to the strangling of Pierre Laporte last October, have al- ready made some spectacular court appearances but their rial has been postponed to Harch 1. CITED FOR CONTEMPT To illustrate courtroom at- mosphere: At least 10 persons have been cited for contempt, one of them collecting five cita- tions at one hesring. Mr. Cud- dihy said two of Montreal's six Jourt of Queen's Bench divi- sions are occupied with eases involving alleged terrorism. Nearly half of those charged here are facing four or five off- notably, mem- oership to the outlawed Fronl de Liberation du could be tried on all of them. When a reporter commented that there seemed to be conflict among authorities regarding the toal of accused in Quebec, one source said the Montreal total is sometimes placed at 54. But a warrant was still out- standing against one woman to connection with FLQ activities Besides, social welfare court had disposed of hvo cases in- volving juveniles and one man was found not guilty of FLC charges early in December by reasons of insanity. So, 50 per- sons now faced trial. A 15-month prison sentence has been the stiffest handeanies holding import licences- ir overseas oil, mainly from the Middle East, vould be permitted to use such ickets for Canadian oil. HOLDING OFF Although there is some disa- ;reement over why there hasn't >een greater Canadian imports, he mam theory is thai ticket- wlders have been holding off in he hope they can use them for overseas oil. A shortage of tank- ers has slowde supplies from hat source. Canadian oil is appreciably cheaper than U.S. oil, but more expensive than Middle East oil fa view of the recent pric etocrease to Middle East oil. Some sources have suggested that another reason for the delay to taking Canadian oil at capacity is that U.S. red tape has delayed issuance of lic- ences. However, the Washington Post quotes Ralph Snyder, act- ing administrator of the oil im- port administration, as salyng he has issued enough licences to bring to barrels a day from Canada. He further is quoted as saying they haven't been used because refiners now are operating at capacity. Production from U.S.-owned offshore wells has been "even more The Post 53515. "It averaged barrels daily in the two months before Nixon's new rules and to the next two months."
