NOT A SELLOUT "It is difficult to see how in- creased oil and gas exports to U.S. markets equates to a sell- out of our resources to Ameri- Mr. Gray writes. "In order to find, develop and bene- fit from our potential petroleum resources, we will need all the export markets that we can ob- tain. And if we are lucky enough to sell in the highest- priced oil' market in the world, then so much the better." In an interview Friday, Mr. Gray predicted that Canada would suffer great economic loss if the federal government were to curb foreign investment in order to increase Canadian ownership cf the oil and gas industry, which now is owned three-quarters by foreign in- vestors. GOOD APPROACH "Closer Csnadian-U.S. co-op- eration on energy matters to permit greater access to U.S. markets for Canadian oil and gas, coupled with increased in- centives for Canadians to save and invest, will prove a more positive and rewarding ap- proach to the problem of pre- dominate foreign ownership. "The only way we can seek to redress this p'roblem without paying a heavy economic price is to seek maximum utilization cal drilling, it will fake another 151! years to attain in Canada Ilu1 comparable intensity of petivlcum exploration already achieved in the U.S., Mr. tlray) says. "Xor is there much fear tnatj we will soon exhaust our petro- leum resources. "Ilk-covered and potential Ca- nadian oil reserves are, by con- servative estimate, enough to sustain the current oil produc- tion rale of barrels a day for some 230 years; the re- serves of the Athabasca oil sands in northeastern Allwrta could sustain another 700 years of current production and possi- ble synthetic petroleum sup- plies which could be made from the nation's coal resources are many times greater. "The real challenge is lo en- sure that the bulk of our poten- tial petroleum resources will not be wasted by being left in the ground, undiscovered, un- and benefitting no one." Grain Loading AI Record Kale Lang's Forecast OTTAWA UT' One of the "record movements of grain from the Prairies" is being marshalled for the summer to meet a buildup of orders for wheat, rapesecd and barley, Otto Lang, minister in charge of the Canadian wheat board, said here. Mr. Lang, replying to criti- cisms of the wheat board by John Burton East) in an adjournment de- bate, fold the Commons that rail cars a week will be loaded with grain for movement to both the Lakehead and the West Coast. Woman In The News Mrs, 'B' Radical From Away Back GRADUATES BEFORE SON KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) Mrs. JMaxine Berry, 30-year-old mother of three, managed to beat her eldest son through col- lege by one year. Mrs. Berry wil! receive a bachelor of sci- ence degree in elementary edu- cation at the University of Kan- sas in Lawrence tonight. Her oldest son is a junior at the uni- versity. roLOMBO !AF) When 24- y c a r -o 1 d Sirimavo HaUvattc, daughter of one of Ceylon's leading aristocratic families, became the wife of Solomon Bandaranaike in 1040. ii was thought she had married a bit below her station. Bandaranaike, a 41-year-old cabinet minister in the British- supervised government, w a s from the lowlands while Sirihia- vo's family came from the hills of Kandy and had long been in the service of Ceylon's kings. But her marriage to the Ox- ford-educated Bandaranaike eventually propelled the young woman into the whirlwind of Ceylon's politics. Bandaranaike was assassi- nated in 1959, and the next year his stout, round-faced widow be- came the world's first woman prime minister. Now after five years in the opposition, she has won the job once more. As a girl Sirimavo. now 54, was educated at a Roman Cath- olic convent school, dabbled in social work, played the piano and an occasional game of Icn- m's. As a politician she has be- come the symbol of a mixture of Buddhist nationalism, radical economic policies and an offi- cially non-aligned foreign policy that smiles favorably on Com- munist nations. All of tliis was inherited from her loquacious husband, a Christian convert turned Buddh- ist who founded the Sri Freedom party in 1931. Sri Lanka is the Buddhist name for Ceylon. Bandaran- aike's party capitalized on the festering resentments that the country's Sinhala and Buddhist majority felt toward the largely Hindu Tamil minority. The Tamils, who came to Ceylon as plantation workers from south- ern India, managed to get good educations and government jobs as well. Riding the crest of these re- sentments and mixing in calls for nationalization of key indus- tries, Bandaranaike was elected prime minister in 1956. In 1959, after stoking the fires of com- munal hatred, he was assassi- nated by a fanatic Buddhist monk. Though she had always been a deferential and fairly politi- MRS B cal wife, Mrs. Bandaranaiks was prevailed upon to lend her name 'and leadership to tho Freedom party and carry on her husband's work. Mrs. "B" led the Freedom party and Us Marxist allies to victory in 1900 on the radical platform inherited from her husband. As prime minister, Mrs. Ban- daranaike leaned heavily on her young nephew, Felix Reginald bias Bandaranaike, who cham- pioned the radical economic pol- ities that led Ceylon into severe trouble. Widespread nationalizations that scared off foreign inves- tors, costly outlays for social services, padding of the govern- ment bureaucracy and lax fiscal measures cut production and in- duced runaway inflation. But when she tried to nation- alize an increasingly hostile press, conservative elements in I her owri Freedom party re- j belled, toppling her govern- ment. She returns committed to Back In Office many of the same policies.
