Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta s s Stronger trend evident today TORONTO (CP) Prices on the Toronto stock market moved higher in moderate mid- session trading today. The industrial index, consid- ered the major indicator of market trend, rose .77 to 208.41, base metals .13 to 96.68 and western oils .60 to 214.00. Golds, however, dropped 7.62 to 283.59 in response to lower prices for the metal on world markets. Volume by 11 a.m. was 000 shares compared with 000 at the same time Wednes- day. Advances outnumbered de- clines 118 to 89 while 168 issues were unchanged. Oil refining, bank, paper and forest and industrial mining stocks were among gaining sec- tors of the market while only general manufacturing and mis- cellaneous groups were lower. Falconbridge Nickel rose 1% to Maclaren Power A 1 to Pollution device for cars shown LONDON (Reuter) The British government unveiled a simple device today which it said marks a major break- through in combatting car en- gine pollution. Called vapipe (short for vapor the device has been shown to cut carbon monoxide emissions by about 70 per cent and nitrogen oxides by about 90 per cent. It is not as effective, however, in eliminating hydro- carbons. Vapipe resulted from more than two years of intensive re- search by the government-run National Engineering Labora- tory, working in close collabora- tion with Shell Research Ltd. The department of trade and industry said its development is "at major significance" from the environmental point of view." British engineers said today the vapipe cuts carbon monox- ide and nitrogen oxide emis- sions and a much simpler and presumably cheaper device could be used with it to trap the third major pollutant, hydrocar- bons. The British approach is to provide for cleaner engine per- formance through a weaker mixture of air and gas than normally used.

Mines and Minerals Minister Bill Dickie said the govern- ment plans to carry out the first stage of the program in July and August in areas of the block not used for military training by Brit- ish troops. The provincial cabinet an- nounced approval of a special warrant of million for the first stage and an additional 50-well program this winter. Initial studies indicate a major undeveloped natural gas reserve of up to four trillion cubic feet is located in the area, an amount that could add 10 per cent to the province's total natural gas reserves. Alberta owns over 95 per cent of the sub-surface rights in the block, but the surface rights are owned by the federal gov- ernment. Ottawa uses the block as a military training facility, and British armored units will be using more than half of it this year for their annual spring- through -fall training man- oeuvres. A Calgary engineering con- sultant firm, Last and Kloepfer Ltd., will supervise field opera- tions. The cabinet also named two members to the Suffield evalu- ation committee that will over- see the gas exploration pro- gram. Philip Dowling, a member of the Environment Conservation Authority, and James K. Gray, a Calgary oil executive and author of the study last year on the potential reserves in the Suffield block, were named members of the committee that is heeaded by H. H. Somerville, former deputy minister of mines and minerals. WANTED!

Mussolini son thinks father misunderstood LONDON (AP) Vittorio MNssolini, eldest son of Italy's duce Benito Mussolini, thinks his father was a misunderstood man. Vittorio, 56, is in London for publication this week of his book, Mussolini, the Tragic Women in His Life. The women, he explained, are Rachele, the duce's wife, Edda Ciano, his daughter, and Clara Petacci, his mistress who was killed with him by Italian resistance fighters. "My father was not like Hit- Vittorio told a reporter. "They were two different kinds of people. One example is that there were no concentration camps in Italy. "To me, it is a mistake to think that the political life of my father began only when he made the alliance with Hitler. For 20 years before that he did many good things for Italy." Mussolini has lived in Argen- tina since the end of the Second World War. He is correspondent there of a Roma newspaper.

John Helliwell, a University of British Columbia economics professor, said a study has shown development of any ma- jor northern resources should Oil tanker restrictions under study MONTREAL (CP) The fed- eral government is considering legislation to restrict giant oil tankers to a limited number of Canadian ports, the Inter- national Association for Pollu- tion Control (IAPC) was told yesterday. Dr. Pierre Camu, head of the maritime section of the federal department of transport, said legislation may be necessary because of the "relatively large number" of potential deepwater ports in Canada. "We are presently examining our oil port development plans with a view to restricting the movement of giant oil tankers to a limited number of port lo- cations where the physical con- ditions are safest from a na- vigational Dr. Camu told the 300 delegates to the lAPC's third annual con- vention. He did not identify possible ports to be used for the super- tankers. Dr. Camu said supertankers are less likely to be involved in accidents leading to pollution than other tankers. Because of their size they make infrequent port calls and are restricted to using ports away from area of high traffic.

Evans The Industrial Development Bank announces the appoint- ment of J. E. Evans as Man- ager of its office in Leth- bridge, succeeding T. F. Ching who has been appointed Man- ager of the Kelowna office of the bank. Prior to this appointment, Mr. Evans was Assistant Manager of the Lethbridge office. A subsidiary of the Bank of Canada, IDB provides term financing to businesses which are unable to obtain such financial assistance else- where on reasonable terms and be carried out only after haustive analysis of all its as- pects. But, he said, while the time should be taken to examine all the alternatives to Arctic gas exploitation, there is a danger investors, mainly from the U.S., will shy away rather than wait 10 or 15 years for Canada to de- cide. Timing was important If eco- nomic disturbances were to be avoided. He said the projected eco- nomic benefits to Canadians from development of Mackenzie River delta gas, under existing contract prices and tax laws, are small in size and relation to the benefits accruing to U.S. buyers. Among the alternatives con- sidered by Dr. HelliwelTs study group, paid for by his univer- sity and by the Canada Council, is delay of development and re- duced gas exports. "Only by a comparison be- tween the present plan for 1970s development and the later al- ternatives can a sensible deci- sion be made. "It may turn out that even with price and tax changes to increase Canadian benefits, im- mediate development of Arctic gas will be inferior to some of the plans for later develop- ment." STALL DEVELOPMENT? Under questioning by T. C. Douglas ichan-The Dr. Helli- well said there is likely enough gas south of the Arctic Circle to forestall development of a Mackenzie Valley line. Ke agreed with a suggestion by Mr. Douglas that the main pressure for construction of the toe could come from the U.S. wanting a shipment route for gas from Prudhoe Bay on Alaska's north slope. He disagreed, however, with a suggestion by Victor Eailton that a continental energy policy might be one an- swer to the problem.
