Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 15, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Ontario cabinet shuffled TORONTO (CP) Ontario Premier William Davis recalled former treasurer Darcy McKeough to his old cabinet portfolio Tuesday, topping off a six-man cabinet realignment. He succeeds John White, 49, named minister without por- tfolio, who earlier said he will not seek re-election. Mr. White stepped into the right-hand post to the premier, which also carries with it responsibility for intergovernment affairs, in January, 1973, after Mr. McKeough resigned in the face of conflict-of-interest charges. In other cabinet moves Tuesday: Attorney-General Robert Welch, 46, asked for and got appointment to the new minister of culture and recreation. He was replaced by John Clement, 46, minister of con- sumer and commercial relations, who also stepped up as provincial secretary for justice. Sidney Handleman, 53, who resigned from his housing ministry portfolio last year after a heart attack, received "a clean bill of health" and Mr. Clement's former post. Dennis Timbrell, 28, youngest cabinet minister in Ontario history, moved up from minister without port- folio responsible for the youth secretariat to the ministry of energy, replacing Mr. McKeough, 41. The premier praised Mr. White and the triple-A credit rating the province earned while he was treasurer. However, Mr. Davis said in an interview he was anxious to have a treasurer responsi- ble for bringing down the next budget "involved in the next (election) campaign." The new appointees, quizzed on their plans for office, generally replied the first priority would be to become familar with the issues in their posts. Wodntsday, Jinmry 15. 1975 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 13 Ottawa and B.C. narrow gap in gas issue DARCY MCKEOUGH (CP) Federal and British Columbia officials agreed Tuesday to put aside provincial suggestions for an increase in the export price of natural gas and to work to- wards settlement of their dis- agreement over resource tax- ation. Premier Dave Barrett said following a meeting with Striking mint workers aim at coin shortage OTTAWA (CP) The Public Service Alliance, which represents striking employees at the Royal Cana- dian Mint, is urging its members to use paper money when they make purchases to take coins out of circulation. The union hopes to intensify an existing coin shortage as part of an effort to put pressure on the mint management, an alliance spokesman said Tuesday. About 600 mint employees have been on strike since last Thursday. "We've been urging our members not to use coin to increase the pressure on management to settle Jim Wyllie, an ex- ecutive vice-president of the alliance said. "Already some businesses have signs up notifying customers of the coin shortage and asking that they tender the correct amounts when paying." One business in Ottawa which has the signs up is the Liquor Control Board of On- tario. In the last year, the staff at the mint in Ottawa, Hull, Que., and Winnipeg has been doubled because of a coin shortage and the special production of Olympic coins. Mediation talks between the mint and union negotiators broke last week and since then there have been no nego- tiations. The alliance is seeking raises of 22 per cent in the first year and a comparable raise in the second year of a two-year working contract while the last mint offer was for 10 per cent and 8.5 per cent, respectively, in the first and second years of a pro- posed agreement. Average hourly pay now is Satellite contract awarded OTTAWA (CP) A million contract has been awarded for construction of a satellite tracking station and ground data-handling system at Pouch Cove, Nfld., the energy department announced Tuesday. The work at the site, near St. John's, will be done by MacDonald Dettwilier and Associates Ltd. of Vancouver, Expected to be completed in April, 1976, the station will have a 30-foot dish receiver providing coverage of Eastern Canada by American Earth Resources Technology and National Oceanic At- mospheric Administration satellites. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald and acting finance minister Charles Drury that lie felt there is room for an agreement on the taxation issue. "We both came to the meet- ing with different views and I think we narrowed those said Mr. Mac- donald following the two-hour meeting. But neither he nor Mr. Bar- rett would release details of the discussions, saying they wanted time to review their positions. Premier Barrett travelled to Ottawa for meetings on his proposal to almost double the export price of natural gas to a thousand cubic feet from by the end of the year. Following the talks, he said he agreed with a suggestion from Mr. Macdonald that a decision on both the domestic and export price of natural gas should be left for a meeting of first ministers sometime within the next six months. Prime reason for the first minister's meeting is to negotiate a new domestic crude oil price, frozen at a barrel, about below world prices, since last spring. The premier said last week- end that the higher prices for exported natural gas would provide an estimated million in extra revenue an- nually. He suggested it would be divided equally among Ot- tawa, the province and B.C. municipalities. The proposal, which drew angry reaction from U.S. buy- ers, was made as an alter- native to provisions on natural resource taxation in the Nov. 18 federal budget. Federal officials said British Columbia Petroleum Corp. a Crown agency, pays producers 22 cents a thousand cubic feet for gas, reselling it for 85 cents. Ottawa contends that 22 cents is not "the fair market value" for the gas. IT TAKES A LOT OF DUMMIES TO DESIGN A CAR FOR PEOPLE WHO THINK. By smashing Volvos into barriers with dummies inside, we've made them safer for people.These tests helped develop a front end which absorbs highway-speed impacts to protect the passenger compartment. And a three-point seat belt which can restrain tons By bouncing a dummy bottom on a seat for hours, we designed one to stay comfortable for years. But all our improvements aren't suggested by dummies. Some come from common sense. All cars have head restraints. Volvo's have openings, so you can see behind you. All cars have windshield wipers. But instead of shiny ones that glare, Volvo has dull black ones. Volvo provides spring-strut front suspension, four wheel power-assisted disc brakes, steel-belted radials, rack and pinion steering and fuel injection. And a heating-circulation system that can freshen the air, warm your feet and defog the front windows all at once. At Volvo, the smallest details get careful consideration. Which is why, all things considered, Volvo may well be the world's most carefully thought-out car. The kind of car that has a special attraction for people who think. VOUVO It's what we learn from dummies that attracts them.
