Mr. M a c donald's comments followed a warning from the federal government that the province has no authority to interfere with export contracts of natural gas. Federal Energy Minister Donald Macdonald gave the warning after a meeting with provincial cabinet members in Victoria to discuss Ottawa's new green paper on energy pol- icy. The B.C. minister agreed the question of export was definite- ly federal, but said any re- source that comes out of B.C. territory is a provincial re- source. baard permission to export 139 million barrels of liquid eth- ane, an extract of natural gas. The permission would pave the way for a in- vestment by Dome and Dow in an ethylene plant at Fort Sas- katchewan, Alta., and a mile pipeline from the plant to the United States and On- tario. Tied to the Dome-Dow hear- ing is an investigation by t h e board of whsther natural gas reserves are sufficient to allow increased exports.

The report also was highly optimistic about possibilities of big gas finds in the Suffield military basa adjoining the Milk River and Medicine Hat fields. Board members also noted that the consultant's report forecasting higher reserves in all three areas were based on high returns for the gas. The report also based its fora- cast for economic possibilities of the fields on a three-per-cent inflation rate over the next five years. The hearing was told later that most economic predictions are for an inflationary rate of between five and six per cent AND DANCE LOUNGE "DAVID KAYE SHOW" Tonight thru Saturday (NO COVER CHARGE) HOTEL Red Coach Lounge Tonight thru Saturday Presents "LAURIE BARDSLEY" HOTEL CORNER 4th AVE. md 7th ST.

Prison staff wins protest EDMONTON (CP) The Journal said Thursday Solici- tor-General Warren AUmand has ordered the Canadian Psn- itentiary Service to rescind an order made in June which would have taken of prison staff out of uniform. The newspaper said the directive issued by Commission- er Paul Faguy was counter- manded two weeks ago by Mr. AUmand following protests from the staff of all federal prisons last month. A senior penitentiary service official said tbe decision, which was originally made to ease tension betwesn non-security staff and inmates, "is now under study." Paul Gascon, president of the senator-general component of the Public Service Alliance of Canada Union, representing the prison staff said they protest- ed the move "because they weren't properly consulted, wouldn't have been property compensated and felt the change might have been very non-beneficial." Mr. Gascon said the staff did r.jt feel the compensation the treasury department would have provided for fee change- over to civilian clothes was ad- equate, the newspaper said. j He said staff were concern- led the change would affeit i prison discipline. I "You could conceivably run i into a situation where it would be difficult to tell a staff mem- ber in Chilian dothss from an inroale. "As wefl. these people have for years worn a uniform, they are proud of wearing a nm- fonn, like to wear a uniform and tbe change deeply concern- ed them." Mr: Gascon said. Saskatchewan penitentiary staff protested tbe decision to Ottawa and the newspaper quot- ed an authoritative source in tbe prison saying "the staff is ready to rebel over this thing." THIS WEEKEND at the LEGION FRIDAY NIGHT Cabaret "Moonglowt" SATURDAY NIGHT Cdxiret "Moonglows" Vimy Lounge "Blue" MEMBERS AND INVITED GUESTS ONLY Justice department defends release of Mafia prisoner WASHINGTON (CP) Attor- ney-General Elliot Richardson says normal commutation procedures were followed in the release from prison of Angelo (Gyp) DeCarlo. He made the comment after Senator Henry Jackson (Dem. Wash.) said the release "smells." "My review of the matter in which DeCarlo was released from federal custody has shown that normal procedures were not Richardson said in a statement issued by the justice department. Richardson said he discussed the case with Richard Kleindienst, bis predecessor, and others end said he found the bureau of prisons recom- mended commutation last sum- mer "as a result of DeCarlo's condition continuing to deterior- ate despite cobalt radiation treatment" at Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta. He said the case "was handled in accor- dance with a longstanding de- partment of justice policy to- ward terminal illness cases." DeCarlo, described by Jack- son as a high-ranking Mafia fig- ure, was released in time for Christmas last year by presi- dential executive clemency after serving two years of a 12- year term of extortion. Jackson has linked his pre- mature release to former House lawyer John Dean, fired by President Nixon in April be- cause of his involvement in a top-level effort to cover up the Watergate bugging scandal. Jackson also drew In Kleindienst, who headed the justice department when De- Carlo was freed. "It would appear that normal procedures and safeguards were bypassed by the attorney-gen' era! and presidential counsel in this Jackson said in making public a letter to the current attorney-general, Elliot Richardson. "Something smells, and want to know the sena- tor said. A spokesman for the Senate crime investigations subconv mittee of which Jackson is chairman, said the DeCarlo release did not go through nor- norrnal procedures but went straight from the pardon at- torney's office, to Kleindienst, to Dean and -then pre- sumably ------to the president. Jackson also expressed con- cern about the disappearance of another Mafia figure, An- Election funds misuse claimed WASHINGTON (AP) The General Accounting Office (GAO) has cited four apparent violations of election laws in tbe transfer of from Presi- dent Nixon's re-election effort to a Salute for Ted Agnew gala last year. The GAO said Thursday the Agnew committee falsely re- ported the as contribu- tions from 31 donors. It said also that the Finance Com- mittee to Re-elect the President did not report the transfer of the money. The GAO accused Blagden Wharton, treasurer of the Ag- new committee, of making "false, fictitious or fraudulent statements" and of "subscrib- ing under oath to materials be believed to be untrue." The fourth violation was against unnamed persons "act- ing for the committee" who "willfully participated in tbe ef- fort to falsify, conceal or cover up" the transfer. The GAO, which oversees the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971, turned the report over to the justice department for possible criminal prosecution. Vice-President Spiro Agnew's office said be had no part in ar- ranging the May, 1972, affair in Neiv cabinet appointed by Allende From SANTIAGO (CP) President Salvador Allende appointed a new cabinet in Chile Thursday, naming civilians to all 15 posts and rejecting participation by the armed forces. Members of his own Socialist party received four ministry po- sitions.

Close call OTTAWA (CP) Parliament almost stumbled into a situation in which an election could not be called if tbe government was defeated, foe Commons was told Thursday night. Government House Leader Al- lan MacEacben said that if electoral boundaries commis- sion proposals had been pro- claimed this fall as planned, an election could not be held for one year while preparations were made under tbe new boundaries.
