Apparently stung by comments from Mr. Taylor that the NDP is interested in wall-to- wall factories, Mr. Notley said viable secondary industries are vital to the province's future. He applauded the government's Oil and Natural Gas Conservation Amendment Act which was under debate last week. It will give the government power to direct development of its burgeoning petrochemical industry to areas which can most benefit. The legislation is intended to prevent the chaos and waste of resources which could result from building 19 fertilizer plants, four methane plants, two ethylene complexes and other projects not yet proposed. "We could be out of our minds as legislators if we didn't move in on petrochemicals and develop world-scale Mr. Notiey said. It is tine for a wealthy person (Mr. Taylor is a millionaire) to say "we should have a pastoral atmosphere in Alberta with a few sheep wandering around." The province must move quickly to diversify its economy or face serious trouble in the future, he said. The bill was approved in principle. Also approved in principle and forwarded for detailed study by committee of the whole was an Emergency Medical Aid Amendment Act. The act will protect doctors and dentists from ia'.v suits arising from administering necessary emergency help to unconscious or mentally incapacitated persons. Alberta welfare system 'discourages' self-help EDMONTON (CP) The Edmonton Social Planning Council says Alberta gives welfare recipients less incentive to work than any province in the country. "Alberta's welfare system strongly discourages work and actually creates major financial disincentives for those who attempt to become more says a report by the council's humane standard of living commission report to the provincial government. Social development minister Neil Crawford said later work incentives will be one of many reforms considered in an overhaul welfare policy this summer. He declined further comment "because I don't want to create public speculation on what we are going to do." In Alberta, a single person on welfare may earn per month above his welfare benefit without having the benefit payments reduced. A family unit can earn an extra Neither rate has been changed since 1961 and both are behind every other province. Above the maximum, every dollar earned is deducted from welfare. COSTS HIGH The commission said the cost of clothing, lunch, arrl transportation in going to a job generally wipes out the to a welfare recipient is now allowed to earn. It said most welfare recipients are unable to get employment that pays enough Strike, lockout ban plan flayed HALIFAX (CP) A pending Alberta law banning strikes or lockouts on major construction projects, such as any future development of the Athabasca Oil Sands, was attacked by leaders of the Canadian construction industry as a step that will upset the entire labor scene. Robert A. Bird of Winnipeg, chairman of the Canadian Construction Association, said the group's 36-men board of directors met here over the weekend and agreed to seek a meeting with Alberta Premier Peter Lougheed to state opposition to the legislation introduced last Tuesday by the Alberta government Mr. Bird said the effect will be that private construction firms on smaller projects will be unable to fight strikes on their jobs. Union members working on major projects, unable to strike and protected it om a lockout, would be able to divert financial support to strikes elsewhere. Mr. Bird said workers on major projects would reap the benefits obtained by strikes elsewhere in the industry, in effect getting a "free ride." If other provincial government's followed Alberta's lead in this area "the impact would be felt across Canada." Henry De Puyjalon of Ottawa. association president, said British Columbia and Manitoba had made similar moves in the past but the circumstances were different the number of workers involved was smaller and their ability to support strikes elsewhere in the industry was minimal. Mr. Puyjalon said contractors in Nova Scotia last year locked out building tradesmen as a pressure tactic of the type the Alberta legislation would make impossible The result would be that builders would be unable, until a job is finished, to quote cost estimates or guarantee completion dates Mr Bird said there have been strong protests against the legislation by Alberta contractors but organized labor apparently is in favor of it. He said the major proponents of the move are large, international firms which might develop the tar sands. Fall session to begin in October EDMpNTON (CP) The fall sitting of the 1974 session of the Alberta legislature will probably begin Oct. 25. Lou Hyndman. government house leader, says. The Spring sitting, which moves into its 57th day Monday, is expected to this week. STOP BALDNESS Fm snip clinic in LftMrUfi n TMtfcy. Jm 4 Mrif.

The commission report recommended the basic personal exemption be raised to from It also recommends welfare re- cipients be allowed to keep half of everything they earn above the exemption. As an example, the commission quoted a family which now receives a month social assistance. If it obtained an outside income of the total reduction in assistance would be The province would save the money and the family would have an adequate income, said the report. BABY FOUND BILLINGS (AP) An unidentified baby boy found in a cardboard box at a trailer court has been taken off the critical list at a Billings hospital. When the child was found a week ago, there was also a note inside the box that said: "please take care of my baby boy born May 20."
