Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 15, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta B THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD _ Widneiday, July 15, 1970- Oil Bids Plan To Spark Fight WASHINGTON (AP) A proposal to require competitive bidding for oil exploration leases on all federal lands In Alaska is expected to spark a fight in the United States Senate over proposed min- eral royalty payments to Alaska natives. Senator Henry M. Jacksonn (Dem. Wash.) chairman of the Senate interior committee, of- fered the amendment Monday to the native land claims bill. Opponents, who want explora- tion leases for areas with no proven oil reserves made under a 1920 mineral-leasing law re- quiring only nominal annual payments, have threatened to fight the amendment by at- tempting to eliminate the pro- posed payment pr posal. Oil companies paid near to Alaska la year when North Slope drill! nights were auctioned. The interior committee, by close vote, had struck from tl land claims bill a provision permit competitive bidding f leases on tacts on which t government would retain mir eral rights. Jackson contends millions dollars may be lost if applican are permitted to obtain leas under the 1920 mineral-leasir law. MAY GET ROYALTIES Opposition also exists to provision of the bill which wou jive Alaska natives in royalties from oil and oth GRAND MARSHAL GODFREY-Entertainer Arthur Godfrey was grand marshal of the Calgary Stampede parade.

Stanfield Favors Closer ECM Ties BONN (Reuters) Opposi- tion Conservative Leader Rob- ert Stanfield said Tuesday Can- ada should examine the possibil- ities of association with lie Eu- ropean Common Market. Stanfield, on a four-day visit to West Germany, told a news conference he is impressed'by the "spectacular development" of the market. :0ne day it could be equal to of even greater than the United States in economic terms. 'We (Canadians) must ask ourselves w e havs not done so the potentials are. We ought not to dismiss out of hand an associa- tion with an enlarged Common Market. "We don't want'to be in bed with the United States alone. We need a broader trade." Before coming to West Ger- many, Stanfield held talks in Brussels with Common Market officials and visited Paris. He said Canada is watching with concern negotiations for1 an enlarged Common Market. "There is some nervousness and concern of what will be the effect of Britain joining. But Canada hopes that Britain will in its negotiations make some effort to see that Canada's point of view is taken into considera- tion and that its policy-particii- larly concerning will be as non-pr'otectionist as is practicable. "Personally, I have some con- cern that Canada could find it- self with a small number of In- dustrialized countries outside the big trading blocks, the Com- mon Market, the United States and Japan, all three dynamic centres of growth. Canada has to take an increased interest in the Common Market." Stanfield also called for the maintenance of' Canada's part in NATO and criticized Prime Minister Trudeau's government for what he called a lack of out- Ward-looking foreign policy.
