Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 27, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD Friday, July 27, 1973 Affectionate faivns Entertainer Dinah Christie, in Winnipeg to appear in a production of Annie Get Your Gun, found the fawns at the city's Assiniboine Park zoo affectionote. Government asked to wait for alleged over-payment EDMONTON (CP) The provincial government is bsing asked to wait until 1974 to sat- tle an alleged over-payment to the city of in munici- pal assistance grants. Mayor Ivor Dent said a let- ter is being sent to Municipal Affairs Minister Dave Russell in reply to a request that the city give some indication of what it intends to do about the over-payment. Mayor Dent said Calgary may have been over-paid about in grants because it calculates its census figures in January, while Edmonton uses November for its count. This means that Calgary's popula- tion in any year would be high- er. The problem, the mayor said, is that there is no consistency the province in the way that population figures are put together. ''There was no set date at which census counts had to be taken so that practices across the province have been different." Edmonton is said to have collected more than it was en- to in municipal grants be- cause its 1970 and 1971 popula tion figures were inflated. Mayor Dent said bureau of statistics figures indicate the city had a population of 155 in 1971 higher than the figure of supplied by a University of Alberta popula- tion expert. RECORD WATER LEVELS NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. (CP) An all-time record high monthly level was reached on Lake Erie in June, exceeding the previous maximum recorc set in May, 1952, by about eight inches, government observers said. U.S. legislators solidly behind Alaskan line By BRUCE LEVETT WASHINGTON (CP) The controversial S3.5-billion trans- Alaska oil pipeline project is moving toward the construction stage. After more than three years of ddays, the United States Senate has piloted its pipeline bill around all legal shoals, and ;he House of Representatives is in the process of doing the same. Both congressional bodies are solidly behind the Alaska route. The only question remaining seems to be when construction will start on what has been called the largest privately-fi- nanced project in history. Th3 question of what course the tankers will sail south from Alaska remains one for negotia- tion between Canada and the oil companies. Both House and Senate have prepared the way for 'the start of by June, writing into their bills provisions designed to kill litigation blocking the project and to exempt the action from judicial review. But in the very act of at- tempting to clear toe way of le- gal all of it of environmental authors of the pipeline legisla- tion may have sown the seeds of even further delay. MAY VOTE NEXT WEEK The House bill now moves to the floor of the house for vote- possibly as early as next week. Legislators have been hoping to have a Senate-Housa conference to produce a joint bill before congressional recess Aug. 3. One last call for a study of a Canadian alternative route for the oil from Alaska is expected to be sounded in an amendment by Representative Morris Udall (Dem. Ariz.) wlren the House bill goes to the floor. The pro- posed amendment is expected to lose. Canada's main Merest now is to keep the supertankers well at sea off the British Columbia certainly to keep them out of the twisting, trea- cherous Juan de Fuca Strait as they head for refineries on Pu- get Sound in northwest Wash- ington state. The answer may be for Can- ada to offer increased oil ex- ports to that area by the equiv- alent of whatever the proposed tanker capacity might be. The at-peak production of the North Slope field on the rim of the U.S. Arctic is estimated at two million barrels a day, but not all of this is destined for the Puget Sound area. Indication that the U.S. legis- lators are sensitive to the Cana- dian objections is shown in an amendment added to the House bill favoring the trans-Alaska line. It calls for pipeline owners to pay full compensation, no mat- ter, who is at fault, for any oil spill damage. Nixon praises St. Laurent WASHINGTON (CP) Presi- dent Nixon Thursday paid trib- ute to former prime minister Louis St. Laurent who died in j Ottawa Wednesday at 91, as an architect of NATO .and a force for friendship between Canada and the United States.

"As I recall Prime Minister St. Laurent's many contribu- tions to the structure of world peace, I thlifc particularly of his instrumental role in the creation of NATO. "Today, NATO stands as an important monument to his leadership.
