Lethbridge Herald {Newspaper} - 1974-01-12,Lethbridge, Alberta Gas decision upheld VICTORIA (CP) - At-torney>General Alex Mac* donald said Friday the National Energy Board (NEB) has upheld Britisb Columbia’s decision last October to increase tfae export price of natural gas by 81 per cent, “It’s really a happy, haw day for the province of B.C., and our American friends 1 think an>reciate our position,’' he told reporters El Paso Natural Gas Co., which buys two*thirds of the natural gas produced in B.C. and distributes it in the U.S. Northwest, has refused to pay the higher price, contending that the province bad no authority to set prices on its own. The company owes the province about ft million to date, officials said this week. Mr. Macdonald said "1 would think so,” when asked if El Paso now would pay its arrears. “Of course, they have no choice.” “We’re going to get a fair return for our natural gas--and I stress fair.” Before the price of gas was raised, B.C. was getting 33 cents a thousand cubic feet. This went up to 61 cents a thousand cubic feet for export gas, based on an NEB reflation that the export price must be at least 109 per cent of the domestic gas price. B.C. accomplished the price rise by raising the price paid by B.C. Hydro, the main domestic buyer. AC»ei»TA OOVCftNMCNT TEiCPHONC« APPOINTMENT NOTICE Mixdair.

BURLINGTON. Vt. (AP) - Dr. Roy Horst’s research lab probably should be in a dingy castle cellar filled with spiders and cobwebs. After all, he’s got six vampire bats there. Such creatures that go screeching into the night in their hunt for blood normally aren’t fountl in the snow-covered regions of Vermont. Horst brought them from Mexico to help study some of the questions associated with human kidney problems. Horst, an associate professor of anatomy at the University of Vermont College of Medicine, says vampire bats have an extremely efficient kidney system—so efficient that they can shed excess water about as fast as they drink blood. Vampire bats weigh about an ^unce, have a one-foot wingspan and drink only blood for sustenance. Horst says that vampire bats rarely attack humans, but in the wilds they feed on livestock and other warm-blooded animals. Since the animal can double its weight at feeding, which makes it quite difficult to fly, the bat begins to urinate almost as so<k) as it starts eating. This ability to separate and shed water from blood so quickly keeps the bat at flying trim throughout his feeding. The vampire bat, in addition, cat) concentrate six times as much waste material in the urine as most other mammals, Horst says. “This is closely allied to problems in humans, such as salt retention problems of many persons with high blood pressure. We use an animal such as this bat bwause be apparently is faced with similar problems, yet does extremely well.” Horst has been one of few persons successful in breeding vampire bats in cap* tivity. Although his present colony is down to six bats, he has kept 25 to 30 at one time. Horst says feeding them isn’t much of a problem, even though they’ll drink only fresh blood. “We have an arrangement with local slaughter houses,” he said. “We can go over and get buckets of blood when they slaughter cows. We package and refrigerate it, and store about a week's supply at a time. “Our bats will only drink fresh blood and won’t touch any that’s been froien or has additives in it. So you put the fresh stuff in a bowl, slide if into their cage and when you come back the next day, tfae little critters have cleaned out the bowl.

Telephone 329-4444 Americans are advised to use Canada routes EDMONTON (CP) -Americans from the eastern and mid-west states are being advised to drive through Canada to get to the 1974 World Fair in Spokane, Glen Chambers, the fair’s chief organizer, said Friday. Mr. Chambers told a news conference that gasoline situations in the U.S. are too uncertain and Americans are being told a drive through Canada might save them some hardships, “Now is tneir chance to visit Canada and not only may it be their chance, they may have no other choice.” Energy problems will probably result in a loss of 100,000 of an estimated 4.8 million visitors to the fair, which runs from May 4 to Nov. 3, he said.
