Responding to a question Thursday night, th_e New Mex- ico Democrat said he was shocked to learn of the forg- eries.

Harry 'Woodman, a spokesman for Trans Moun- tain Oil Pipeline Co., said to- day Mr Woodman said 25 men are working to clean the t barrel spill, but operations must b3 carried out by hand because of the difficult terrain and the fear of environmental damage if machinery is used. The spill, which occurred Sat- urday night sis miles Inside the park's east gate, was caused iby a crack in the company's i 24-inch pipeline. i New York Times Service MOSCOW The Soviet Un- ion announced Friday it had signed a second multibillion dol- lar natural gas deal with Am- erican companies.

"It could be worked on tb; same basis as the wheat mar- keting Mr. Nimsick said, "so that all oil resources would be co-ordinated through one agency." The idea of a national com- pany was brought up in the fed- eral energy study report re- leased Thursday. The report, called An Energy- Policy foi Canada, Phase One and Analysis did not recom- mend establishment of such a company but said it was a mat- ter for further study. The minister said ha did not think such a national board would threaten existing oil companies in Canada. "The main aim would be planning the production and sale of petroleum products so we make sure there is plenty for ourselves. "I don't think Canadians should forever and a day have prices increasing because of what is happening in another country." Rocky Mt. politicians spark patronage row HERALD OTTAWA BUREAU OTTAWA A furious battle appears to be shaping up be- twoen Joe Clark (PC Rocky Mountain) and defeated Liberal MP Allen Sulatycky who held the constituency himself until the Conservative sweep last Oct. 30th. Mr. Sulatycky, a lawyer and a former journalist, is annoyed Cabinet men list holdings EDMONTON (CP) The 22 members of the Alberta cab- inet filed statements of disclos- ure of their personal interest Friday, and eight ministers an- nounced they have created "blind trusts." The trusts were a require- ment set down by Premier Peter Lougheed for any cabin- et minister who held shares in a private company operating in Alberta that could be "mater- ially affected" by government decisions. Blind trusts in which the minister holds no management control were created by Mr. Lougheed; Don Getty, intergov- ernmental affairs; Lou Hynd- man, education; Bill Yurko, environment; Bill Dickie, mines and minerals; Roy Farran, telephones; Fred Peacock, in- dustry; and Bob Dowling, con- sumer affairs. The disclosure policy was es- tab'ished by Mr. Lougheed to avoid any suggestion of con- flict of interest. The premier's policy direct- ive asked for the listing of any land the minister of his family may hold and any private com- pany, partnerships or propriet- orships in which they have an interest. Premier Lougheed listed his interests as two lots in the Capitol Hill region of Edmon- ton and one in the villa sec- tion of Banff. He also has a financial interest in E. P. Lougheed Holdings Ltd. Santiago revolt crushed SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) Troops with orders to shoot at curfew violators patrolled the capital today after forces loyal to President Salvador Allende's leftist government crushed a re- volt. Seven persons, including six civilians, were killed and 22 wounded Friday in exchanges of gunfire between the rebels and the presidential palace guard, who quickly ended the rebellion that began during the morning rush hour. A state of emergency was proclaimed for the country, and Santiago province was put un- der curfew. about a series of questions placed on the House of Com- mons order and notice paper that suggest possible patronage by the Liberal government as well as perhaps even conflict of interest. The questions were placed on the order paper by Nova Scotia MP Robert Coates, but there is a good chance they were in- spired by Mr. Clark who'd ratter not be openly accused of attacking a fellow Albertan. Mr. Coates wants to know why Prime Minister Pierre El- liott Trudeau's government ap- pointed Mr. Sulatycky to the board of Panarctic Oils Ltd. and whether he has also been appointed or retained in some capacity by the Banff Advisory Council whib at the same time representing individuals or groups in dealings with the In- dan and Northern Affairs De- partment or is counsel or an ad- visor for the federal govern- ment in any way. He also wants to know whether Mr. Sulatycky is re- ceiving any money from Ottawa in any way whatsoever. In a heated telephone call from Edmonton where Mr. Sulatycky has his law office, he denied that since his like other defeated Liberal can- he's received any favors from Ottawa. "For instance, I'm paid noth- ing for being on the board of Panarctic. Some people down here seem to think I'm on the gravy in fact, I've received says Mr. Sulatycky, who was a popular MP and Parliamentary secre- tary to Indian and Af- fairs Minister Jean Chretien. Mr. Clark, also a former Jour- nalist and a former executive- assistant to Progressive Con- servative leader Robert Stanfield, said he'd rather not comment on the matter until the government officially an- swers the nine intricately' worded questions. But the Alberta MP does ad- mit to having heard wide ru- mors in the constituency about federal influence. Basically, the questions go much deepar than might at first bs both Mr. Clark and Mr. Sulatycky know what all the action is about. Rocky Mountain was the one seat the Liberals thought they could hold in Alberta. It's the one seat they believe they can gst 6ack. Even Alberta Con- servatives secretly admit to Mr. Su'atycky's popularity. But Mr. Clark, who is also ex- tremely popular, has to face the fact that if Mr. Sulatycky can in some way be kept in the pub- lic eye in Alberta he may well be just as formidable a candi- date as last Oct. 30th. So Alberta Conservatives be- lieve the federal Liberals will do anything to keep Mr. Sulatycky looking good. And what they want to do is both discredit and embarrass Mr. Sulatycky to make him a less effective the de- fsated Liberal knows exactly what they are up to. But despite election motives, the Conservatives are tempted to believe that Mr. Sulatycky has received favors from Ot- even though the Pan- arctic appointment may not pay anything it does give the defated Liberal some promi- nence. And there are rumblings in Ottawa that Calgarians are so annoyed about Pat Mahoney's juicy" position that the only time he'll ever sit on Parliament Hill again is for Mr. Trudeau to pay him off with a senate seat.

NDP tackles Olympic cost MODERN INDUSTRIAL RENTALS 1350 lit 328-8896 "Industrial and Owner Rentals" RUG SHAMPOOERS FLOOR SANDERS IS YOUR BUY OTTAWA (CP) Giving sub- Stance to the NDP's announced intention of opposing the gov- ernment's Olympic Games bill, three New Democrats spoke out in the Commons Friday against management and financial plans for the 1976 world athletic event in Montreal. Arnold Peters (Timiskamingt said he does not oppose the (James in principle but. if the federal government is going to share in the cost, it should do so in a straightforward manner. He said the government by not providing direct funds is detracting from participation by the country as a whole. As it is, the Games appear to be solely a Montreal venture he argued .lohn Rodriguez BelM said the Games may turn out to' be the most costly on record and will do nothing to promote amateur sports. Frank Howard (Skeena) said against the government's bill, permitting the sale of fia million special coin issues have never sold more than one million coins in one year. But Treasury Board president C. M. Drury, in closing debate on second reading of the bill, described the NDP attitude as selfish. Canadians should not willingly participate in Olympic Games elsewhere but resist the idea of acting as hosts. The legislation would not only authorize the sale of coins but provide for special stamps and a national lottery to raise an e.s- timalPfl million Although New will vote against the bill, it is ex- pected to pass second reading with Conservative support next week. Former Prime Minister John Diefenbaker suggested Friday the government may feel ob- liged to pick up a deficit as it did for Expo 67. While enthusiastic about the Games, he said they will not be a success "unless Canadians as a whole believe that, at the end of the road, they will not be called upon to pay taxes to meet large deficits." Indirectly, the federal govern- ment will contribute to million to the mil- lion for security and an unde- termined amount from Central Mortgage and Housing Corp for construction work. Public panic has not been eased by the fact that within five days of issuing the warn- ing, the government said the situation was not as serious as first presented. Fishermen unable to gel rid of their catches have demanded compensation for their losses, and protests in various parts of the country forced several com- panies to close to halt their dis- charge of poisonous wastes. The main threat comes from mercury and polychlorinuted biphenyl (PCB) a petroche- mical byproduct. Mercury contamination of fish has been established as the cause of a disease first detected 17 years ago in Japan's south- ern city of Minamata. So far 397 people have been officially designated as victims, and 68 of them have died. HITS NERVOUS SYSTEM A concentration of mercury attacks the central nervous sys- tem causing paralysis, speech impediment and malfunctions of the eyes and ears. PCB poisoning causes nausea and aching joints. The skin of victims turns black, and they can lose their sight. The health ministry warned June 24 that growing levels of mercury and PCB con- tamination around the coast madr it dangerous to ton much fish.
