EDMONTON fCPI The Western Economic Conference in Calgary next month will con- centrate on bread issues of discontent in the west, not spe- cific problems, Justice Minis- ter Otto Lang said Monday night. Speaking to a Liberal party meeting, Mr. Lang said "we must examine the approach of Canada as a whole to this great part of the country.'' The c o n f erence involving Prime Minister Trudeau and the four western premiers nil] be of "historic significance" in that it will look at the over- all picture. Mr. Lang v.as not concerned by the possibility of political patronage charges over the ap- pointment of Pat Mahoney, former Liberal cabinet minis- ter who was defeated in the last election, as an organizer of the conference. "He's a man of real ability and we're delighted to have he said. "One real ad- vantage is that Mahoney knows my cabinet colleagues and can talk to them better than any other man I know."

Also scheduled for today were continuing medical experiments and an earth resources study that will concentrate on urban development, water pollution and land use in the Chesapeake Bay area of the U.S. east coast.

CHECK WEIGHTLESS EFFECT The initial tests late today were to study the behavior of molten metals in weigh- tlessness, evaluate the joining and cutting of various materials by electron beam welding and experiment with growing gal- lium arsenide electronic crys- tals. Later in the mission, the as- tronauts will practice mainte- nance techniques- and try to make perfect spheres, various alloys, composites and vac- I cines. I For safety reasons, the astro- j nauts operate the experiments by remote control inside a pro- tected chamber.

The province owns most of the sub surface rights. Mr. Yurko said the province is discussing methods of re- turning ownership of surface rights to the province, and in- tends to develop management plans for both renewable and non renewable resources. "We're moving in this direc- tion, but it does not take some time. Your presentation is of some help." The fanners supported the province's plan to embark on a million gas exploration program in the military block this year, regarding agricul- tural and resource develop- ment as compatible. Gas drilling" activity will take place in areas not involved with military training this summer, but the question of surface ownership will have to be resolved before any full- scale gas production can take place. Mr. Yurko told the delegation that Premier Peter Loueheed, in announcing the Suffield gas exploration program to the last sitting of the legislature, also said the government was an- alyzing other potential long- term uses such as agriculture, wilderness, recreation and parkland. tawa is "well disposed" to making the conference open to the press because it is a gener- al meeting, not a negotiating conference. However. Mr. Lang said the premiers have not yet agreed on whether the meeting should be open. Mr. Lang, also the minister in charge of the Canadian Wheat Board, said his recent call for grain farmers to grow as much as they can was "a challenge" to them. "For the last three years, we have set records in expoiting grain, but we have sold more than the farmers produced. Now we are challenging the farmers and giving them an opportunity to challenge the system." Referring to charges made by the opposition in the Com- mons last week that Canadian wheat is going for low prices in long term agreements, Mr. Lang said such agreements are a gamble. "The price of wheat can go up or it can go down. Do you sell or don't The wheat board makes an educated guess at what the price of wheat will do before it enters long term agreements, he said. No timetable set for court action on gas proposal TORONTO (CP) Premier William Davis told the legisla- ture Monday that although the government hasn't got a spe- cific timetable for getting Al- berta into the courts on its two- price gas proposals he said it should be "the sooner the bet- ter." Ontario announced a sweep- ing ensrgy policy last week which included the likelihood of Alberta and Ontario testing the constitutionality of the western province's gas price proposals. Under opposition questioning Monday, Mr. Davis said he had not received any official reac- tion from the Alberta govern- ment following Ontario's policy position. The premier indicated he had supplied the Alberta govern- ment with copies of the Ontario position. However, he said, he couldn't give ths specific timing of the proposed court test but would only say "it is being actively pursued." The premier stressed that the Alberta proposal shouldn't be the sole criteria for. the court test but said rather it should cover the whofe gamut of re-- sources. Bullet removed WASHINGTON (Reuter) Senator John Stennis (Dem. Miss.) underwent an operation here Monday for removal of a bullet from his abdomen, more than four months after he was shot outside his Washington home. The 71-year-old senator was reported in satisfactory condition. It relates to the flk rf energy and resources generally that I think there is some merit in determining in just what art the provincial and what are Ott federal the pretaier said. Nude dance decision reserved OTTAWA (CP) The Su- preme Court of Canada re- served decision Monday on whether a nude dance per- formed before about 1C Calgary lunchers was an immoral per- formance under the Criminal Code. The court was asked to over- turn the conviction of Kelly Johnson of Okotoks, Alta., for performing the two-minuta dance Sept. 29, 1971, in an es- tablishment known as Dino's Hideaway Cabaret in Calgary. She was convicted in provin- cial court Dec. 2, 1971, of un- lawfully appearing as a "per- former in an immoral perform- ance, to wit; did dance in the nude in a theatre before a pay- ing audience, contrary to the Criminal Code." Miss Johnson was fined She appealed to the Alberta Supreme Court which reversed the verdict. The Alberta attor- ney-general appealed to the Al- berta Appeal Court which rein- stated the conviction July 12, 1972.

Mr. Ellis told the annual meeting of the Alberta Cham- ber of Cccnmerce here that pvc "i'ss moved right into the legitimate activities of business" in such areas as auto insurance. Such intrusion Is eroding the oompstitive enterprise system, he said, adding that it also "in- creases red tape and ineffici- ency, which in the final analy- sis, increases cost." Mr. Ellis urged the business community to ''speak up with one voice against intrusion by government into those sectors of the economy which have been handled efficiently by bus- iness." At Monday's meeting, Robert Chapman of Edmonton was named president-elect of the Alberta Chamber of Commerce. Cliff Brager of Carmose, is president; Clem Collins of Grande Prairie is first vice- president; Henry Kroeger of Consort, is second vice-presi- dent and Roland Rocque of St. Paul, is trewurer.
