Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 9, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Thursday, January 9, 1975 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 Dateline Alberta NDP council to meet LOST WALLET FOUND Alberta firms seek ground rules KDMONTON (CP) The Alberta NDP council will hold its general meeting here Jan. 11-12, provincial leader Grant Noteley said Wednesday in a press release. The council, which is the party's governing body between conventions, is ex- pected to focus discussion on campaign issues in the next provincial election. The council will also set the ageiida for the annual conven- tion of the provincial NDP party, to be held in Calgary Jan. 31-Feb. 2. Wilson seeks new term CALGARY (CP) Roy Wilson announced Wednesday he will seek another term as Social Credit MLA for Calgary Bow in the next provincial election. Mr. Wilson, president of a land developing company, will seek the party nomination Feb. 14. He was first elected to the legislature in 1971 and has served as opposition critic for senior citizens affairs and civil rights. WINNIPEG (CP) Jack Ross of Winnipeg lost his wallet while working on a construction project in Macdonald, Man., in the spring of 1952. Twenty-three years later, the wallet was returned to him without a single penny missing. Mr. Ross, who got his wallet back a few days ago, was spreading insulation in the attic of a building at the old Mac- donald Airport northwest of Portage la Prairie in April, 1952. At the end of the day, he found he had misplaced his wallet. Fred Burdett, an Oak Point, Man., construction worker who was helping dismantle the airport building, found the wallet recently, and mailed it back to Mr. Ross. Inside were two King George VI bills, some small change and personal papers. Mr. Ross says he's going to keep most of the contents in the family treasure chest, but the two bills, now worth about each as collectors' items, are going to his two children. Graveyard shift bylaw illegal affecting North Sea oil Forest road closed CALGARY (CP) The Alberta forest trunk road was closed at the Wiaporous Bridge, HI miles north of Cuchrane, 50 miles northwest of Calgary yesterday after a 22-year-old wooden bridge failed to meet a department of highways safety inspection. The bridge will be replaced in spring but the road will not be reopened until the work is completed. UNITED MOTORS CALGARY (CP) Judge James Kidd Wednesday declared illegal a city bylaw which bans minors from working in retail stores between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. The district court judge rul- ed in favor of Southland Cor- poration, operators of the 7-11 food chain, and said the provincial government- does not give the city the power to regulate labor. Southland had been charged several times by city police for defying the city bylaw which was enacted after a 16 year old service station attendant was brutally murdered while working alone at an all night service station last summer. The bylaw required that a minor working the so called graveyard shift in a retail store must be under the super- vision of an adult at all times, and that the stores have some type of security system to protect the cash inside the store. The bylaw also banned the employment of minors in ser- vice stations during the over- night hours, but that section of the bylaw was not considered by Judge Kidd. CO. LTD.

McMahon Stadium decision pending EDMONTON (CP) An over-all development policy for recreational facilities in Calgary has been reached by the Alberta cabinet but no decision has been made on funding for an expansion of McMahon Recrea- tion Minister Horst Schmid said Wednesday. The minister said details of the development policy will be announced after they have been discussed with city of- ficials and others involved. The government recognizes the importance of making a decision on funding of a possi- ble expansion at McMahon Stadium, scheduled site for the 1975 Grey Cup game, Mr. Schmidt said. However, it first wanted to have dis- cussions with the Calgary of- ficials involved. Expansion of the stadium from its current capacity of about to about has been proposed, along with installation of artificial turf and construction of a field house. The stadium is the home of Calgary Stampeders of the Western Football Conference.

EDMONTON (CP) Sisters Susanna and llona Biro received awards for saving their grandfather's life in an ice fishing mishap two years ago. Susanna, 14, and llona, 11, were ice fishing with their 74 -year-old grandfather, Joe Rosenberger, on Lac la Nonne, 40 miles northwest of here, in April, 1973. Susanna and llona received the Life of Alberta Silver Medal from Lt.-Gov. Ralph Steinhauer. Susanna and her grand- father were walking to shore when the ice collapsed beneath them. Susanna sup- ported her grandfather in the cold water for 20 minutes while llona, responding to calls for help, attempted a rescue with a rake. After falling into the water Auto hulks moved away under plan EDMONTON (CP) About car bodies were hauled from'the Alberta countryside to holding sites in 1974 under a provincial government program designed to clear the landscape of abandoned vehicles. A spokesman for the en- vironment department said about hulks were moved in 1973 to municipally selected holding sites under the program which began that year. Under the program, private citizens, companies, and municipalities can haul aban- doned vehicles to holding sites, where the cars are tendered to private contrac- tors for flattening, hauling, and recycling. All communities in the province are included in the program, with the exception of Edmonton, Calgary and Hed Deer which have salvage operations in business, the department spokesman said. and crawling out, llona managed to reach the strand- ed couple and Susanna, using tiie rake, managed to pull her grandather onto the ice. Susanna tried to keep her grandfather warm while llona crawled back to shore, walked half a mile to a telephone and got in touch with a nearby farm family. The family used wood planks to bring Mr. Rosenberger and Susanna to shore. By JOE MA CALGARY (CP) .Representatives from Cana- dian companies which have found oil in the British North Sea will attend a meeting wing with the British energy ministery in London Monday to discuss ground rules affecting the North Sea oil play. Jack Pierce, president of Ranger Oil Canada Ltd., and Roland Richardson, vice- president of United Canso Oil and Gas Ltd., are already in London meeting with other members of the United Kingdom North Sea Oil Operators Association. There are some 45 Canadian companies exploring in the British sector of the North Sea but Hanger and United Canso, both based in Calgary, are the first ones to strike North Sea Britain's hope to get out of its huge petroleum debt. Ranger is a member of the group headed by British Petroleum (BP) which has found two billion barrels of oil in the Ninian field 90 miles east of the Shetland Islands. Rangers has a 20-per-cent interest in the field. United Canso holds a 16.8- per-cent interest in the Thistle field 30 miles to the north, where a group headed by Bur- mah Oil Co. of Glasgow has found 500 million barrels of oil. Britain, forecast to have a trade deficit this year mainly due to the drain of petroleum revenue to the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries hangs its balance-of-payments and energy self-sufficiency hopes on the North Sea oil. The British government has proposed a number of measures to increase its takes of the North Sea oil revenue, including higher taxation, ac- quisition via negotiation of 51- per-cent interest in fields it considers promising, and creation of a British national oil corporation. Oil industry sources in Cal- gary say the British govern- ment moves, coupled with international oil policies and Scottish demands to rights of the North Sea oil, have forced a new assessment of the North Sea oil play. Both Burmah and United Canso have run into cash flow shortages due to the tight international money market and political uncertainty, company and banking sources say. Officials of United Canso have confirmed reports that the company is negotiating the sale of its interests in the North Sea and the Celtic Sea with several undisclosed British and European com- panies. North Sea development, to cost billion by 1980, is be- Skid-steer Loader That "Puts It All Together" When the Melroe Bobcat was matched in performance tests against thirteen other skid-steer loader makes. Cere's what happened: [Bobcat led the field, with clear superiority in fim pull, cycle time, practical load capacity, safety and full load. That's the kind of performance you'd expect from Ameri- ca's number one skid-steer loader, hut it's just part of the Bobcat story. Bobcat is famous for multi-job versatility. One Bobcal. one operator and a group of special-job attachments can replace several costly, one-job macnmes and their operators.

United Canso has dif- ficulties getting financing partly because the Thistle field is not considered suf- ficient guarantee and partly because Burmah itself had to go to the British government and the Bank of England to guarantee its in- ternational loan, oil industry sources say. The Bank of England took Burmah's 22-per-cent stake in BP and its smaller holding in Shell Transport and Trading as collateral with power to sell them if necessary, while Burmah gave the British government 51-per-cent interest in its participation in the Ninian and Thistle fields. Burmah has also reached an agreement to sell its wholly- owned subsidiary, Great Plains Development Co. of Canada Ltd. of Calgary, to the United States controlled Canadian Industrial Gas and Oil Ltd. of Calgary for million. A spokesman for Ranger said his company does not have United Canso's problems because the Ninian field is large enough to warrant com- mercial development.
