Much of the coal from these two western provinces is exported to Japan.

Ontario led in imports with 14.5 million tons, followed by Quebec with Nova Scotia Manitoba near- ly Newfoundland Saskatchewan British Columbia and New Brunswick 618 tons, Statistics Canada said. The imports come from the United States. The 1973 production increase followed an even larger boost of 12.4 per cent in 1972, Statistics Canada said.

OTTAWA The Suffield military range northwest of Medicine Hat in southwestern Alberta is perhaps most in- famous as the site of chemical and bacteriological army tests during the 1940s, 90s and 60s. But in this time of energy concern, it now promises to take on a new importance, and one that could be critical if the federal government and GENERAL FARM Presents The Weather UNRISE THURSDAY SUNSET H L Pres 1 -27 .02 13 -21 .05 2 -20 -2 -24 0 -27 .02 4 -17 .04 6 -21 38 21 16 0 12 -16 02 17 1 38 20 -16 -31 .02 -11 -32 -11 -25 14 9 ethbridge------ incher Creek [edicine Hat .dmonton rande Prairie anff........ algary ictoria 'enticton 'nnce George .amloops. ancouver askatoon..... legma Winnipeg 'oronto...... ittawa...... lontreal t John's lalifax harlottetown 'redencton 'hicago lew York liami....... ,os Angetes ,as Vegas 'hoenix liami Athens tome >ans Condon terlm 32 8 -8 .02 10 -8 27 28 23 19 6 4 -3 -4 21 18 30 20 .31 23 25 79 72 .02 54 48 44 36 06 02 63 65 .06 79 66 50 36 54 37 48 39 45 36 41 34 Ford Power RELIABLE EFFICIENT POWER By Ford For All Your Irrigation Requirements Call in and Let Quote Prices on the Various Power Units General Farm Supplies Coutts Highway Box 1202 Phone Alberta lock horns in coming weeks on the issue of energy. Underneath the 100-square- miles of almost virgin prairie grassland at Suffield lies' an estimated 4-trillion cubic feet of natural gas. And the federal government, which took over the tract during the Second World War, in effect controls all the gas because it owns the surface rights and therefore the access to tne once- Alberta territory. Alberta, which retains the mineral sub-surface rights, is very interested in tapping the Suffield natural gas reserve, which would add about 10 per- cent to the province's proven gas almost eight percent to Canada's proven reserves, not counting the Arctic. To tap the gas, Alberta will have to obtain permission from Ottawa. And this fact could be one of Ottawa's trump cards in any energy fight. Alberta this winter is in the middle of an exploratory drill- ing program under a special agreement signed with the de- fence department in Ottawa late last year. The agreement allows the province to drill about 77 ex- ploratory wells up until this spring, to define the natural gas deposits and to see exactly how much is there. The first 27 wells drilled last summer and fall around the perimeter of the Suffield range all successfully un- covered natural gas, most of it close to the surface. Another third of the wells have been drilled to date, with one more third to go before spring. A consultant's report for Al- berta on the Suffield natural gas reserves recommended that Alberta seek access from, the federal government to some parts of the federal range later this year, to start production of natural gas, and to obtain full access and full production no later than 1979.
