Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta -Wednesday, July 11, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 23 Oil Group Warns Government On Ownership Report OTTAWA Canadian Petroleum Association wouli welcome a higher percentage o Canadian ownersliip of firms op- erating in Canada but not at the cost of slowing oil and.gas ex- ploration, David Furlong, man- aging director of the associa- tion, said today. "The government should con- sider the economic result of im- plementing this said Mr. Furlong, commenting on a news release by the Commons external affairs committee. The committee urged here that guides be set that woulc ensure that Canadians own 51 per cent of firms operating in Canada. Canada has an "immense op- portunity to improve its oil and gas Mr. Furlong said in an interview. Exploration in the Arctic and the Maritimes could yield dis- coveries as important to Canada as the Leduc finds in Alberta in 1947. Ontario Papers Get Guidelines For Advertising TORONTO (CP) Daily newspapers in Ontario will be sent guidelines concerning clas- sified advertisements of em- ployment in line with new legis- lation to prevent discrimination because of sex or marital status, says Dr. L i t a -II o s e Betcherman, director of the labor department's women's bu- reau. In anticipation of the new leg- islation, the Globe and Mail last week replaced the headings of Help Wanted Male and Help Wanted Female with the head- ings Jobs of Interest to Men and Jobs of Interest to Women. The, switch followed discus- sions between advertising repre- sentatives of the three Ontario daily newspapers and senior of- ficials of the provincial depart- ment of labor. Dr. Betcherman said Tuesday Thb Globe and Mail appears to have partly met the intent of the legislation. ELIMINATE VIRUS TEL AVIV (AP; Prof. Me- lech Perek of the Hebrew Uni- versity of Jerusalem says he has developed an ultra-violet ray treatment that will wipe out Newcastle disease, a virus infection in poultry resembling bronchitis. He said the treat- ment is a preventive, not a cure. "But it will require huge amounts of capital to continue this exploration and bring it to asuccessful conclusion. It seems in large part this capita] will. not be available in Can- ada." Mr. Furlong said voluntary guides would not work in the short term though "nothing is impossible" over a long period. He said his association repre- sents 97 per cent of the explora- tion, production and pipeline as- pects of the oil and gas indus- CRIME AND PUNISHMENT Cambodian soldiers, accused of stealing a pair of.Jrou- sers, crawl on their elbows and knees by their commanding officer who warned them the next infraction would result In their being shot on, the spot. Electronic Auction System For Hogs Aid To Industry E3DMONTON (CP) An elec- tronic auction system lor hogs has eliminated many of the kinks in a previously-unstable, often-treacherous process of buying and selling. The system, established by the Alberta Hog Producers Mar- keting Board for Alberta's booming hog industry, third- largest in Canada, connects board offices with eight major packing plants in addition to commission and export buyers. Board manager Orval Ander- son says the system now han- dles about hogs a week apd has provided farmers an average of more for each 100 pounds. And buyers are assured of a more consistent supply to meet demands. He said that a producer with 20 nogs or more calls a board office and a description of the quality, location and number is distributed by Telex to all buy- ing points. The board decides on a top price, based on other markets and the number of hogs availa- ble. Then Telex tape is started which lists a succession of prices that become lower and lower until a buyer stops the machines, signifying he wants to purchase at the last quoted price. BUY FOR EXPORT Lots are sold at the rate of one every 90 minutes, mostly to Alberta packing plants. Com- mission agents also purchase for export to Saskatchewan, Vancouver and the United States, helping to stimulate the market, Jlr. Anderson said. "The marketing board prov- ides a service to producers. They are given information on which to plan production. past, they haven't had too much information." This avoids over-production or large numbrs reaching the mar- ket, unco-ordinated with other producers, and at unpredictable times during the year. This had resulted in price fluctuations. Prior to the Telex auction, most of Alberta's prod- ucers sold directly to packing plants. But about two per cent were sold on the open market and often established the price for the others. The Telex system offers til marketable hogs to all potential buyers at the same time. Alberta Jobless Rate Doubles During 1970 EDMONTON (CP) Unem- ployment in Alberta during June was almost twice as high as in June, 1969, the depart- ment of manpower said today. During the month, 4.2 per cent of the labor force were un- employed compared with 3.9 per cent in May and 2.4 per cent in June, 1969. The Alberta unemployment rate, however, was only about two-thirds of the national av- erage. D. W. Swimmer, a dis- trict economist with the depart- ment, said there were more jobs in June than in May, with the increase being spread evenly among all Industries. During this period, the total labor force in Alberta in- creased to from 000. Much of the increase in the labor force was the result of a heavy influx into Alberta by workers from parts of Canada experiencing more serious economic slowdowns. Wayne Still No. 1 Cowboy HOLLYWOOD (Reuters) John Wayne, now acting in his 202nd film, drives to work in an easily recognizable station wa- has a bubble-top roof to accommodate his cowboy hat. Before the Duke, as he is known in Hollywood, leaves his palatial home, he carefully ad- justs the haif piece which com- plements his thinning locks. He spits as he goes. Since Wayne underwent surgery for lung cancer in 1964, he has switched from smoking 60 to 80 cigarettes a day to chewing to- bacco. John Wayne- 63, has officially been listed as filmdom's great- est box office star of all-time. He has ranked in the top 10 money-making stars 20 times, compared with the late Gary Cooper's 18. Wayne's Oscar this year for the eye-patched sheriff in True Grit set the seal on his success- ful career. But he is not indes- tructible. Hollywood will need a successor for its No. 1 cowboy hero. His heir-apparent is hand- some Clint Eastwood. Both men are physical giants, towering six-foot, four-inches with mas- sive shoulders and the required big fists of cowboy heroes. But Wayne is not yielding the top-cowboy title yet. He has just finished one western, Bio Lobo, and plans to start another in October. Wayne is articulate on his fa- vorite "The western is folklore and I don't think folklore ever loses its he says. "Every country understands, every other country's folklore so you've got something going for you right away. "Horses are the greatest vehi- cle of action for our medium and the western background has lots of beautiful scenery." Official Peak At Last Of Ownership Report OTTAWA (CP) The Com- mons external affairs commit- tee has finally permitted an offi- cial peak at an already-publi- cized report that suggests a na- tional policy to assure 51-per- cent Canadian ownership of for- eign firms operating in Canada. A committee news release, is- sued here, confirmed these and other published leaks about the contents of the report based on a committee study of Can- ada-U.S. relations. The full report will be made public later when the usual French translation can be done. The committee, which ap- proved the report Monday, wants government guidelines on Canadian equity participation in foreign firms extended to clearly demonstrate that the 51- per-cent rule should be the eventual result. Li the committee's words, pol- icy should demonstrate "that all companies operating in Canada shall, over a reasonable period of time and with due regard tc varying circumstances, includ ing the availability of Canadian capital, permit at least 51 per cent of their voting shares to be owned by Canadian citizens." Where the guideline is not sat isfaetorily followed, it should be made mandatory. Canadian shareholders of foreign firms should have the right to elec the number of directors propor- tionate to their total voting shares. Also recommended was some- thing called an ownership control bureau to oversee "mat- ters pertaining to the foreign ownership and control of Cana- dian industry." Guidelines were also sought to support steps in Canadian branches of international unions to exert control of internal ad- ministration, election of offi- cials, expenditures and general social and economic policy.

K. EMPLOYMENT 335 8lh Ave. S.W., (23rd Floor) CALGARY 1, Alberta Telephone 361-3414 ions with American head offices was accompanied by a sugges- tion for the establishment of a division in the federal labor de- partment to obtain and publish "relevant information" about international and other unions operating in Canada. The divi- sion would be armed with legis- lative authority to demand rele- vant information and get it. The news release included comment from committee chairman Ian Wahn, Liberal MP for Toronto St. Paul's, who said that Canadians want gov- ernment definition of problem areas between Canada and the U.S. without going to emotional extremes. IS MODERATE LINE He said the committee report reflects a Canadian attitude that rejects anti-Americanism, but wants "Canada to have policies that recognize these problems, protect Canada's national inter- ests and encourage to the fullest possible extent the development of Canada's economic poten- tial." The committee feels that the danger for Canada is not ab- sorption by the U.S., but that lanada will slip into such a de- pendent position that it will be unable to adopt policies that will displease the U.S. out of ear of the American reaction. The committee fell just short of jsing the word reprisal. Instead it spoke of reaction 'which would invoke circum- stances unacceptable to Canadi- ans." Canada, the committee feels, must not only maintain its polit- cal independence, but maintain nough military, economic snd ultural independence to make ndependent decisions of the ype that characterize an inde- pendent nation.
