tanker treaties key issues in energy talks Royal departure External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp bids the Queen Mother Elizabeth farewell while Chief Justice Bora acting in Governor-General's Jules Leger's looks on in Toronto Monday. Her majesty departed on a Canadian Armed Forces Boeing 707 jet for London after a seven day visit of Toronto and Montreal. WASHINGTON Canada and the United States have agreed to hold talks on northern energy including the question of tanker routes and the location of oil and natural gas informants said Monday. Still to be decided is a time and place for the talks with a decision likely to come shortly after the July 8 Canadian gen- eral informants added. Neither the. state department nor the Canadian embassy would divulge the contents of a note sent by the U.S. to Canada early last month signifying a readiness to open negotiations. The Canadian Press learned that the U.S. wants to determine the willingness of Canada to permit construction of pipelines or other transportation systems across Canadian territory to move natural gas and oil from the North Slope of Alaska to the lower 48 states. Terms and conditions of such construction are also up for dis- also possible need of bilateral agreements and treaties. The U.S. also is interested in determining the con- sistent with the needs of other sections of the of acquiring additional energy from other sources that would make unnecessary the shipment of oil from the Alaska pipeline by tanker into the Puget Sound area. This is the point of greatest contention between Canada and the U.S. in the northern oil situation. Canada regards the tanker route from Alaska as dangerous to areas of the Canadian West Coast. At one Canada offered the U.S. oil by pipeline to U.S. northwest refineries if the U.S. would eliminate the Puget Sound tanker stop. The offer fell flat when it became clear that such oil would be drawn from supplies destined for other U.S. points. All that the state department would say officially concerning VC award will be auctioned the coming negotiations United States and Canada on several occasions in recent held discussions concerning the desirability of concluding an agreement governing the transit of natural gas and oil pipelines through their respective territories. the trans-Alaska Pipeline Authorization Act of Con- gress authorized and requested the president to enter into nego- tiations with the Canadian government regarding the trans- mission of natural gas and oil from the Arctic region to the U.S. and Canada. Canadian government has also indicated its interest in recent statements in achieving satisfactory arrangements on transit pipelines. have informed the Canadian government of our read- iness to proceed with Since the recent filing of an application to build a billion natural gas line from the Arctic through the Yukon. Northwest Territories and some congressmen have been calling for a formal pipeline agreement or treaty with Canada to ensure security of supply. The point was raised last year during consideration of proposals for an oil line through Canada. At that as the Arab oil embargo was Sena- tor Henry Jackson termed Canada political and said formal understandings were unnecessary to ensure Canada could under any future turn off the U.S. oil. Observers here are speculaf'ng that the by calling for negotiations pegged almost solely to pipeline has abandoned its earlier desire to negotiate an elaborate energy agreement with Canada.

Acting Agriculture Secretary Phil Campbell told reporters that total 1974 meat mostly now are estimated at 1.21 billion pounds. This is 365 million pounds or 23 per less than forecast earlier this year and about 130 million pounds below 1973 im- ports. Campbell attributed the sharp downward revision of the import estimates to low U.S. beef prices that are too unattractive to the major foreign Campbell said low prices and heavy losses being felt by U.S. cattlemen are not the result of increased meat as many in the industry have charged. He said U.S. production of red meat rose by 920 million pounds in the first five months of 1974 while imports in the same period fell by 27 million pounds.
