C3144 Oil tax talks end abruptly EDMONTON (CP) The Canadian Petroleum Associa- tion, which represents most of the oil producers in Alberta, has broken off talks with the pro- vincial government on alterna lives to the proposed tax on oil reserves. But the Independent Petrol- eum Association of Canada, which includes smaller firms mainly based in the provincs, has scheduled a meeting this week with Bill Dickie, mines and minerals minister, to dis- cuss alternatives. The government has said it will reach a decision by July 31 on the proposal which would take between S50 and mil- lion annually from the oil in- dustry as of next January. "We have restated our posi- tion that the industry cannot af- ford the 50 to million rax and are not making any alter- native proposals as to how the money might be taken from the CPA assist ant manager Hans Maciej said. IPAC president Stan Miller said his organization has pro- posed individuals companies have the option of increasing royalties instead of paying the mineral tax. The government proposed the tax after discov- ering that most oil production royalties were set at a maxi- mum of 16 2-3 per cent. An increase in the royalty level to 20 per ceal would yield about ?50 million annually, but would not realize any revenue from freehold property which pays no royalties but contri- butes 15 per cent of Alberta's oil production. Ammunition captured after fight MANILA (AP) Philippine armed forces units stormed i stronghold of the Maoist New 'eople's Army in northeastern sabela province recently and captured large amounts of arms and ammunition, the presiden- tial palace announced. The seizure of the weapons, one of the largest ever by Ihe military against the Communist ebels, included 467 rifles and 115 boxes of various ammuni- tion for weapons. The capture of the weapons ollowed nearly a week of fight- ng between government forces and a large number of NPA fol- owers near Palanan, 200 miles lortheast of Manilla. Canadians stuck in U.S.S.R. Russia hard place to leave By JAMES R. PEIPERT KIEV, U.S.S.R. (AP) Six- teen years ago two Canadian teen-agers reluctantly emi- grated to the Ukraine with their parents. Now they are taking on the Soviet bureaucracy in a struggle to return to Canada. Nadia Demidenko, 33, and Eu- gene (Jim) Lenko, 34, tell their stories in crisp Canadian Eng- lish. They show Canadian pass- ports. Each has a letter from Prime Minister Trudeau say- ing: "You are a Canadian citl- Izen by virtue of your birth In Canada and therefore entitled as a matter of right to re-enter Canada at any time All this means little or noth- ing to authorities who say Lenko and Mrs. Demidenko are citizens of the U.S.S.R. Officials from Leonid I. Brezhnev to passport clerks have repeatedly refused or left unanswered their applications, petitions and let- ters. Lonko and Mrs. Demidenko took Soviet-born spouses and have had children since they ar- rived here, and that complicates matters. Soviet citizenship, however acquired, is difficult to part with. Soviet citizens who try to leave the legally be considered "anti-So- viet" or as traitors.

Crop prospcets in most areas are little better lhan average. Rain is urgently needed in the southern and western parts ol Saskatchewan, the country's jiggesl grain-producing prov- nce, where some crops are burning n the heat. In central and western Al- berta, however, there has been .00 much ram and warm weather is needed to help crops Tow.

(AP) Jiggs, realizing the wildest dream of many a set free on an uninhabited is- land with three females- should have been happy enough to swing from the trees. He wasn't, Ihough. The 150- pound chimpanzee, whimper- ing, crawled back inlo his cage, longing for Ihe human companiouslu'p he'd been used to.

The chimps were set free nearly a monlh ago by Emory University's Yerkes Regional Primalc Centre in Atlanta in an experiment designed to see how well apes can breed and adapl in a wild environment in the temperate zone. "At said a Yerkes spokesman, "Ihey seemed confused. Then, with Jigfis leading the way, and the fe- males following, Ihey walked along the beach. "Before long, however, Jiggs, who'd lived in a cage ir.ost of his 12 years, returned lo it, making crying sounds. "Joni sat down nearby, swaying, while Girlie End Saki scampered away and disap- peared." Tlie ncxl day, when Mark Wilson, a graduale student working on the experiment, returned lo the island lo visit Ihe animals and bring food, Jigg.s came scrcnmnR out of the woods to greet hm, the spokesman said.

FLAX IN BLOOM Cereal crops are beginning to form heads that will laler fill wilh kernels; flax and rapeseed have burst into blue and yellow bloom. In the dry areas, Maniloba, southern and western Saskat- chewan and eastern Alberta, the bureau says lower lhan normal temperatures have helped crops withstand the droughl. Bui where rainfall has been ade- quale to excessive, mainly in the rest of Alberta, warmer weather is needed. Bertha army worms have been found in rapeseed crops, but have not yet caused any damage. Lasl year, a good parl of Ihe acreage planted lo Ihis oilseed was destroyed by the voracious worms. Grasshoppers have hit some regions, as have sunflower beetles. The bureau says there is also evidence of wheat leaf rust In southern Manitoba. Bui the disease has not caused serious damage. Small amounts of oat rust have also been reported. Information for the crop re- ports is wired to Ollawa Tues- day nighl by correspondent in the field. Crop conditions by province: Manitoba: Scattered showers throughout the province last week eased dry conditions somewhat, but most regions still need rain. About half the early cereal crops have heads. A good crop of canning peas is ex- pected. Haying is about half fin- ished but the second hay crop and pastures are In only fail- conditions because of the dry area. Saskatchewan: Crops are de- lerioraling in Ihe soulhwest, and casl of Regina. Rain is urgently needed. Further north, cool nights have provided some re- lief from the drought and there is some rain. Early cereals are in head and rapeseed is blos- soming in mosl parls of the province. Alberta: Crop prospects vary greatly. Rainfall since early spring has been light in some Rain is needed along the Sas- kalchewan border but Ihere has been sufficienl moisture in Ihe cenlral part of the province.

They reared Iheir families in Canada. Lenko was born in St. Sophie, Que., and Mrs. Demidenko in Kapuskasing, Onl. In the mid-1950s, a Soviet propaganda campaign aimed al Canada's large Ukrainian popu- lation persuaded the parents, and other Canadian-Ukrainians, to come back. Many became disillusioned after they arrived and tried lo gel back lo Canada. Some succeeded after bureau- cratic hassles. "Our parents returned lo the homeland where they were born, and Canada lei Ihem do lhal without any Mrs. Demidenko observes. "Now we're Irying lo do exactly the same Ihing our parents did." The Canadian embassy in Moscow is aware of these and similar cases, Ihough it refuses lo disclose figures. Embassy of- ficials say the matter is being with "at the highest lev- els" and they hope for good re- sults. CITES DECLARATION Lenko notes thai "the univer- sal declaration of human rights says any person has the right lo leave any country." The Soviet Union is a signa- tory of the United Nalions dec- laralirai. Lenko said he has poinled Ihis oul lo soviel bu- reaucrats who reply: "Thai was written for people abroad, not for you." Neither Lenko nor Mrs. Demi- denko wanted particularly to come to the Soviet Union. He was 18 and she 17 and they had their roots in Canada. She had a boy-friend and was contemplat- ing marriage. She says she got assurances from the Soviet em- bassy in Ottawa thai she could leave Ihe U.S.S.R. any time she liked.
