Celebrated in a Robert Service ballad and something of a local joke in Alaska ever since, the imagin- ary creature was brought to a facsimile of life for the annual Iceworm the community on the Gulf of Alaska. Taking o tip from the ferocious dragons with which the Chinese welcome their New Year, the iceworm depends upon the foot-power of ISO teen-agers in staging an annual parade all by itself.

Phone.., CLIP HERE UIl i I I drafting a unified power policy, says, Len Werry, telephones and utilities minister. He said the province will study "the question of whether the mixture of private, munici- pal and rural electrification as- sociations is the most advanta- geous method of providing uni- form economical power to all Albertans." PUBLIC SYSTEM? He Indicated to the Society of Industrial Accountants of Alberta the review could in- clude consideration of a pub- licly-owned electric system for the province. Alberta and Prince Edward Island are the only provinces without a publicly-owned util- ity commission partly or wholly responsible for produc- tion, distribution and sale of electricity. In an interview, Mr. Werry declined to elaborate on the format of the review, stressing that he and the government haven't adopted a position for or against public power. The first step, he said, must be to initiate studies into fu- ture hydro plants, power ex- port and other questions before adopting a firm policy. "It's something we can't hurry into." SYSTEM EXPANDS Mr. Werry has some problem areas because of a "wide vari- ation" in power rates depend- ing upon power load require- ments and franchise require- ments. Where other provinces were able to finance power develop- ment at the lowest possible rates by making unified ap- proaches to money lenders, the Alberta utilities had to individ- ually seek the best rates they could get. Mr. Weny said by the end of UK century Alberta's electric utility industry will be "more or less equivalent in size to that of Ontario Hydro today." He estimated the system would consume 25 million tons of coal annually by 2000 or the equivalent in other energy forms. "All forms of energy are sub- ject to strong upward cost pressures due to mounting he said. "Electricity production, oth- er Uian hydroelectric, is also subject to strong upward cost pressures, to alleviate its detri- mental environmental effects." It is essential Alberta's pow- er industry "overcome these unfavorable economic and en- vironmental factors as fully as possible to facilitate orderly growth." Marketing boards may set prices WINNIPEG (CP) Agricul- ture Minister Sam Uskiw says unless farmers start getting a bigger share of the food dol- lar, marketing boards may be directed to tell grocers what prices they can charge. He said marketing boards al- ready have the authority to set retail food prices and, if farm- ers' returns continued to be depressed, he'd recommend the authority be used. Mr. Uskiw said his remarks were aimed specifically at meat processors who now de- termine tile market price for farmers Ihrough daily live- stock auctions. "If Hie industry starts play- Ing games with the system and we come to the conclusion it's not of any value, marketing boards could move Into their own system of price tetting overnight." LONDON (CP) Canadian ing the cargo in Djibouti, he authorities are hot on the trail of an alleged wheat plralc but there still is a question of whether they can dose in on him. The alarm was raised when a missing government-paid cargo of some bushels was sighted on a ship pff the coast of French Somalilaix! in the Gulf of Aden. But apparently when the ship's master had trouble sell- took off for international waters and the latest report is that he is heading up the Red Sea to the Saudi Arabian port of Jidda. All diplomatic hands in the Middle East have been warned to be on the watch, to use every legal means of seizing the cargo and the master'as well. Canadian diplomats in Athens are reported to have traced the Greek owner of the ship and to be considering how they can launch a court action against him. APPEAL FOR SUPPORT Tliey appealed to the Greek government for support, an in- formant said, but were advised there is little that the govern- ment can do. The only recourse is the courts. The cargo formed part of s large Canadian relief shipment that left Vancouver destined for what was then East Pakistan and now is Bangladesh. The shipment wni unloaded Into four smaller vessels near Chiltagong. But with war rig- ing between India and Pakistan, the ships were ordered to steam to Singapore. Three ot (he ships reached their destination and accounted for their cargoes but the fourth, a vessel named Pretty, flying the Cyprus flag, disappeared. It later turned up off Djibouti flying the Greek flag and re- named Tavyetos or Taygetos. Lloyd's List, the shipping newspaper, published a warning to the trade Thursday to watch for the vessel and, If any of tho wheat was offered for sale, to report the matter to the Cana- dian high commission in Lori- don.
