Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 31, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta WKlntfdny, Jonualy 1973 THE LETHfcRIOGI HERALD WEST COAST SEAFOODS TRUCKLOAD SALE OF FRESH FISH AND SEAFOODS WILL BE HELD AT FORT WHOOP-UP SERVICE Thursday, Feb. 1 and Friday, Feb. 2 From 11 a.m. to p.m. AAAHHH No, Prime Minister Tm- dean Is not being attacked from the rear In this photo taken in Montreal. He simply has his chin tncked In to hold his scarf in place while an aide helps him with his tost after a meeting ol the Quebec wing of the Liberal Parti'. chops staff Concern mounts over fuel crisis GRANDE CACHE (CPj-Mc- Intyre Porcupine Mines L t d., announced Tuesday it is laying off 150 markers at its coal mine 230 mines west of Edmonton. Charles E. Richardson, pres- ident of McLntyre's coal division at Smoky River, said in an in- terview the layoffs am being m e "to improve production and affect economies." He said the company is clos- ing its No. 5 underground mine because it has proved uneco- nomic. The No. 8 open-pit mine and the No. 5 underground mine would be expanded. I EMPLOYS 636 "To the f u 11 est extent pos-; siWe, manpower from the Xo. 5 mine win be employed by the j company elsewhere." Mr. Rich-1 ardson said, adding the layoffs will reduce the mine's sUfi to j 636. "The company will assist with job placement and relocation j for those leaving its employ." He said consoliderion of the i mining acLmties is designed to enable the company to meet commitments under its long- term contract to supply coal to Japan. The company's contract with the Japanese calls for de- livery of 2 million tons of coal a year, but production difficul- ties resulted in only SO per cent of the 1972 rwrjiremeat. The staff reduction was also designed to ''render the opera- tim profitable aftrr a lenphy period oi heavy losses which since April of 1971 have amount- ed to about S15 million.'' By 1'ETER BUCKLEY WASHINGTON nicely uernonslraied when fuel-carrying river barges and railway cars were tiemielves tied up for lack of fuel. Even when the cold subsided supply problems persisted. t The shortages brought doom-criers out in full force, and with some justification, to paint bleak pictures of a U.S. paralysed for want of energy. A small, faint chorus of dis- senters also was heard, pro- testing that the has besn inverted for devious ends. If not artificial the short- ages this wister seem at least unnecessary in many re- spects. U.S. refiners churned out surpluses of high-profit gaso- line even u shortages of tower-profit heating oil be- came apparent. Local dis- tributors delayed ordering ex- tra beating oil because unused reserves cost money. OIL STAYS IN EARTH Immense reserves of do- mestic oil and gas are un- tapped. Either they aren't profitable enough or ecologi- cally safe enough or, as some critics contend, they are with- held because the petroleum industry hopes to make a kill- in? when shortages force prices up. With greater foresight in Washington, the deficits might also have been eased by allowing larger oil Imports instead of maintaining quotas wbict had to be lifted after shortages appeared._ President Nixon will present an energy message to Congress liis month to pro- ride fresh guidetLnec for na- tional action. Fonter com- merce secretary Peler Peter- son has said it may be most important message Mxon will sec- ond term.
