Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 4, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta No gasoline rationing at present WASHINGTON (AP) Ad- ministration officials said today they are considering a man- datory fuel allocation program to deal with the current gaso- line shortage, but they ruled out gasoline rationing for the present. William Simon, deputy secre- tary of the treasury and chair- man of the president's Oil Pol- icy Committee, said a man- datory program "would force, under penalty, the allocation of crude oil and petroleum prod- ucts equitably." A voluntary fuel allocation program has been operating since May 10 as a result of the countrywide shortage of gaso- line and certain other petro- leum products. Hie administration held pub- lic hearings in nucUJune on the voluntary program and whether a mandatory program is needed. No gas worries for tourists OTTAWA (CP) Tourists visiting Canada will not encoun- ter gasoline shortages, says the president of the Travel Industry Association of Canada. T. R. Thompson said in a news release today that U.S. travel agencies have expressed concern that visitors to this country could encounter short- ages. He said the recent govern- ment controls on gasoline ex- perts have ensured an "ade- quate supplies to meet the needs of all customers in Can- ada." Rattlesnake ritual Daniel Smith sobs with emotion as he deftly handles a rattlesnake during ritual of worship at The Holiness Church near Newport, Term. One man was bitten during the ritual, conducted to show faith in Jesus. Several hundred persons from eight states converged on the church which had b een ordered by the courts not to handle snakes. Ottawa moves to suspend redistribution program OTTAWA (CP) After nego- tiations with all parties, the government has moved to sus- pend the redistribution of fed- eral electoral constituencies un- til the end of 1974. The Commons order paper to- day contains notice of a bill "to spend the operation of the Electoral Boundaries Read- justment Act." The controversial redistribu- tion has been under fire from a variety of quarters in the last several months, and former prime minister John Diefenba- ker has been one of the most vocal critics. Under the redistribution proc ess now well under way, New foundland, Nova Scotia, Quebec Manitoba and Saskatchewan Demand for wheat to exceed supply By DAVID THOMAS LONDON (CP) World de- mand for wheat in the next 12 months is expected to exceed supply by about 296 million jushels, the International Wheat Council reported Tues- day. Canada's export deliveries are estimated at between 265 million and 415' million bushels for the 1973-74 crop year which the council described as "much below the level hoped for." Fulfilment of delivery con- tracts between now and October must rely on existing stocks of Canadian wheat which will drop to then- lowest level in 20 years. But the council said the exact acreage of wheat sown in Can- ada is not known and may ex- ceed the 24.3 million acres of HMS Bounty relic raised from waters of Pacific GLENDALE, Calif. (Reuter) Another relic from the HMS Bounty has been raised from waters off Piteairn Island in South Pacific by descendants of the mutineers who uurced and sank the ship in 1970, it was re- ported Monday. Steve Christian, 22. who claims kinship with Fletcher Christian, first mate of the Bounty and leader of the mut- iny, and other divers brought rp a small cannon from the wreckage 22 feet below the sur- face. The cannon, about a yard long and in good condition, is the first significant part of the Bounty to be retrieved since 1957 when the stem anchor of the vessel raised. Only four notable relics have been recovered front the Bounty, mctadmg the new find. In addition to the camion and the stern anchor, the ship's rud- der was recovered in 1933 and a second cannon was brought to the surface earlier. Steve Christian that be and other divcis also nave found another, larger cannon and have succeeded in breaking it loose from the coral which encrusts the wreckage. They hope to raise it soon. re- an- Tbe new retrieval was ported by Tom Christian, other descendant of the chief mutineer and Pitcairn's radio officer, in a radio conversation with operators at the Voice of Prophecy, radio arm of the Sev- enth Day Adventists here.

Phone 327-3024 spring and winter wheat used as a basis for the council esti- mates. The council had hoped for 28 million acres of Canadian wheat. "It seems likely that farmers have been influenced in their decisions regarding spring wheat planting by the lack of sub-soil moisture reserves fol- lowing a dry winter and will, accordingly, want to 'retain a substantial area of summer fal- said tha report. ENCOURAGED BY RAIN "Widespread rams throughout most of the wheat-growing areas may, however, have couraged producers sub- sequently to plant a large acreage than their stated in- tentions." Total world demand for wheat imports is estimated at between 2.18 billion and 2.55 billion bush- els. The maximum demand esti- mated is equal to the actual world demand in the 1972 73 crop year. Total supply, on the other tend, is predicted at between 1.88 billion and 2.33 billion bush- els which is well below the 2.55 billion bushels traded last year. The wide latitude given in the council's estimates is due to un- certainties about actual acres planted and future weather con- ditions. But, by averaging out the various factors involved, the council predicts total demand at 2.36 billion bushels and total ex- port supply at 2.07 billion bush- els. CARRY-OVERS DOWN Although the current United States harvest is expected to be "probably the largest in his- and prospects in Europe, Australia and Argentina are so far favorable, the concil said carry-over stocks in the big ex- porting areas are below those of last year which means a limited amount of the new crops will be made available for overseas sale. The lack of surplus carry- overs is mainly responsible for the predicted shortage. White wheat production in In- dia and Pakistan is expected to be above that of last year, floods in Bangladesh have dam- aged rice crops and the resul- tant shortage of coarse-grain supplies is expected to add to the pressure on the wheat mar- ket. With weather conditions more favorable than last year, the So- viet Union is expected to pur- chase much less than the SB million bushels imported in 1972-73. Depending on prices in the rain market and ac- tual harvest results, the Soviet Union's demand is expected to be about 259 million bushels. The greatest increases in de- mand may come from Chins, Central America and West Af- rica wbece crops are threatened uv would lose seats as the bound- aries would be realigned in re- lation to population. Only Ontario and British Co- lumbia would gain seats. When the suspending legisla- tion is since there is all-party agreement, it is al- most certain to be passed work on the current redistribu- tion procedure will come to halt. ______ COMMITTEE STUDY Even if the redistribution on the 1971 cen- it would not have been possible to hold general election with the new boundaries until the fall, of 1974. Government sources said that if the suspension is lifted at the end of 1974 and the current process continues, it is unlikely an election could be held with the new boundaries before 1976. The bill provides for both the "termination and the re-estab- lishment of the constitution and membership of commissions which redistribute boundaries in each province. Sources say a parliamentary committee will be established before the suspension is lifted. It would be asked to recom- mend changes in the process. Several MPs have that no province should lost representation because of re- distribution and, as Prime Min- ister Trudeau told the Com- mons, this raises, the question of increasing over-all member- ship in the Commons which now has 264 seats. AFL joins boycott CALGARY (CP) -The Al- berta Federation of Labor said yesterday it has joined a na- tional boycott of tiie postal code called by the Canadian Union of Postal Workers The boycott is aimed at forc- ing the treasury board into giv- ing better wages to coding ma- chine sorters, who are said to be receiving 75 cents an hour less than other postal office clerks.
