January M, 1174-THI LITHMHOai MWALD-I Tories 'bargained away their talk on principle9 EDMONTON (CP) The Lougheed government went to the energy conference at Ottawa like a lion and returned like a lamb, having bargained away its talk on principle in the process, Alberta NDP Leader Grant Notley said Thursday. Mr, Notley, in a news commenting on the performance of the Alberta delegation at the conference Tuesday and Wednesday. He noted Saskatchewan received an increase of at least a barrel for the next 60 days, while Alberta had not. "This disparity alone will cost the province at least 1100 million." Alberta's Conservative government adopted a dogmatic stand which was too inflexible to seek allies, Mr. Notley said, adding that Albertans as a whole will pay a stiff price for the government's isolation. million investment in energy research urged CAMROSE (CP) An investment of million in energy research could return billions of dollars and make Alberta the energy centre of North America, R. N. Dalby of Edmonton said this week. Mr. Dalby, executive vice president of Canadian Utilities Ltd., told the Camrose Chamber of Commerce annual meeting that the province's economic future lies in the orderly development of oil, natural gas, coal and water energy resources. He suggested the million research fund was not unrealistic. "We have to put the dollars in to get them out. We're in competition, with the whole world and if we can put in million, we'll get back billions." Mr. Dalby, who also is chancellor of the University of Alberta, said he supported environment conservation but that energy production both in Canada and the United States had been obstructed by the lobbying of environ- mentalists. In retrospect, it is obvious the province made a serious tactical error last fall by opposing the export tax on crude oil in principle rather than concentrating on the more important question of who gets the proceeds from the tax, the provincial NDP leader suggested. TALK ON PRINCIPLE By accepting a temporary deal Wednesday which restricts Alberta's share to 50 per cent of the proceeds, Alberta has bargained away all its talk on principle for 50 cents on the dollar, Mr. Notley added. Another tactical error was Alberta's insistence that the province had the right to set prices for petroleum in Canada. It now is abundantly clear that any national energy pricing policy must be a two- way street between both provinces and the federal government, Mr. Notley said. However, Alberta and Saskatchewan should not be expected to subsidize consumer prices for the rest of Canada. Consumer subsidies should come from general revenue so that all Canadians pay their share, he said.

Assault charges against RCMP officers dismissed Nixon met Chou En-lai Nixon's twelve crises... Bridge to Peking Ninth in a series In the first half of 1972, President Nixon made two visits that seemed to ensure his reputation as one of the United State's most creative presidents in the field of foreign policy. On Feb. 21, the president arrived in Peking for an eight-day visit to the People's Republic of China. Bringing to an end 23 years of official hostile silence between the two countries, Nixon and Premier Chou En-lai hammered out an word communique which agreed that neither country would seek hegemony in Asia. While the agreement was notably weak regarding the status of Taiwan, it did include promises by both countries to exchange artists, scientists and journalists on a regular basis and paved the way for a series of trade agreements between China and the U.S. The overwhelming American reaction to the China trip was perhaps best expressed by Sen. Edward Kennedy, who called the communique "one of the most progressive documents" in the history of American diplomacy, and hailed "the bridge that has now been built to Peking." Three months later, Nixon met Soviet Premier Aleksei Kosygin and Communist Party Secretary Leonid Brezhnev in Moscow for a spectacular summit meeting, heralding an era of detente between the U.S.R.R. and the U.S. The summit began with the signing of treaties by the two heads of state pledging mutual assistance in the areas of space, health and environmental protection. Four days later, on May 26, Nixon and Brezhnev signed a historic arms limitation treaty, limiting the proliferation of antiballistic missiles and offensive missile launchers. For Richard Nixon, the spring of 1972 was a period of exhilarating success. Does this mean that the man who spent so much of his political life fighting communism suddenly lost all suspicions about the international conspiratorial communist threat? M.I.T. historian Bruce Mazlish suggests not. But he adds, '-'The basic context for Nixon's foreign policy is his dedication to peace." As Nixon told Walter Cronkite back in 1960, "the ma- jor role (of a president) is to contribute toward building world an overriding concern which Nixon attributed to the Quaker values of his mother and grandmother. Peacock answers critics of steel plant venture EDMONT.ON Albertans must free themselves from narrow provincialism in considering measures to have a steel industry located in Western Canada, Industry Minister Fred Peacock said this week. Mr. Peacock; speaking at a Chamber of Commerce luncheon, was replying to critics of the government's share option which, if exercised, would make the government part owner of Interprovincial Steel and Pipe Corp. of Regina. Mr. Peacock declined to pinpoint the government's intentions on the option except to say that the province is "seriously considering" joining forces with Saskatchewan and British Columbia interests in the Regina-based steel, company. Critics of the Alberta involvement say that while it would result in a strong steel industry for Western Canada, the Regina location would rob Alberta of jobs. Critics also say development of coking coal reserves in the Peace River area of northwestern Alberta would be retarded and Alberta's own interest in developing a self-supporting and integrated steel industry would be negated. Mr. Peacock said discussions last year with major, nternational steel consunv s, such as Germany and Ja- failed to provide Albert with the support neces -y to start develou -n't of steel making in the i ace region. BANFF (CP) Assault charges against two Banff RCMP constables were dismissed Wednesday for the second time following a two- day trial. Constables P. G. Sharp and C. J. Allen were charged jointly with assaulting Joseph Mark Leppington of Banff on March 17, 1973. But in announcing the not guilty verdict, Provincial Court Judge John Harvie said there "must be suspicion" that Mr. Leppington came to harm with the two constables. The only direct evidence of assault came from Mr. Leppington "which must be given no weight and disregarded in its entirety." He had admitted to drinking eight or 10 bottles of beer and possibly more on the night in question, the judge said. He was drunk and unreliable. "We are left with a circumstantial case against each officer." Mr. Leppington earlier told the court the two officers approached him in a restaurant and said 'you're coming with us.' One of the officers struck him in the mouth as they left and he was hit on the head when they got into the patrol car. He said he was driven out of Banff and then pulled from the car and kicked and punched several times. Judge Harvie said the prosecution case boiled down to the fact that the three left the restaurant and that some 15 to 20 minutes later Mr. Leppington had injuries consisting of at least a cracked rib. Emergency counsel revised WINNIPEG (CP) Following protests of possible danger, the Manitoba Emergency Measure Organization has revised advice that stranded motorists could use sparks from their' battery to ignite gasoline as a- fire to keep warm or signal for help. The advice was contained in the organization's annual list, of cold-weather survival tips issued last week. One of the tips advised stranded motorists to use a coat hanger placed across the terminals of a car battery to create sparks. However, the EMO now has issued a strong warning to motorists using the advice and plans to issue a new set of survival tips. A spokesman for the society of automotive mechanics in Manitoba said using gasoline to start a fire is dangerous enough, but shorting a battery to set it ablaze is even more dangerous. He said a fully- charged battery could easily explode if an object such as a coat hanger is used to connect the terminals. "This court'is not here to solve the mystery of how he got hurt that night, but to find out if the two accused did it.
