Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, March C, 1974-THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD-9 Interim oil deal possible OTTAWA (CP) There is no hope that Ottawa and the provinces will negotiate a permanent national oil price policy by March 31< Saskatchewan Premier Allan Blakeney said Tuesday. But he indicated after a two-hour private meeting with Prime Minister Trudeau that the two sides might work out an interim solution to prevent the industry from being thrown into chaos. "We had a long discussion and we may be able to work out something that would tide us over until a permanent arrangement can be found. The prospects are certainly better than they were two months ago March 31 was selected by Mr. Trudeau and the 10 provincial premiers in late January as the deadline for settling the future price of domestic crude oil. It is the last day of a voluntary national price freeze on petroleum products. Provincial legislation raising wellhead prices substantially is scheduled to take effect the following day in both Alberta and Saskatchewan. Mr. Blakeney said before the meeting that oil prices are linked too closely with other complex economic issues to allow a total solution by the deadline. The provinces made no commitment in January to reach a full settlement before March 31, he added. There was only an agreement to try. If no solution of any sort is found, the two oil-producing provinces likely will boost prices as planned, and the result might be chaos, he added. "It may be; I don't know. There were chaotic situations at the end of December and the end of January. It's also possible that this will be true at the end of March." Prices of oil produced and used in Canada have been frozen at about a barrel since September while international prices have jumped to more than a barrel. Neither Alberta nor Saskatchewan have announced how much prices will go up after March 31. But Mr. Blakeney has said they might be raised to about a barrel. Ottawa has threatened drastic countermeasures if the provinces go ahead with their legislation. Nothing specific has been announced, but Energy Minister Donald Macdonald said during the weekend that a federal oil marketing board is one possibility. The board would have the legal power to set prices and buy all oil crossing provincial or international boundaries. The producing provinces would have to accept federal price levels if they wanted to sell. Mr. Blakeney said a national marketing board would be a startling a polite phrase" Man cleared under new hate law TORONTO (CP) A Toronto man was acquitted of public incitement to hatred in the first prosecution oinder Canada's Hate Propaganda Act. Judge Michael Cloney dismissed the case involving 30-year-old Armand Siksna, saying the evidence was not sufficiently clear. Mr. Siksna was arrested Nov. 11, 1973, after racist slogans appeared on construction hoardings in the Forest Hill area of Toronto. Constable Eric Rankin testified he saw the slogan "Down With Jews" painted on a board and saw Siksna with a can of spray paint writing the word Mr. Siksna denied painting the slogan. The computer operator, a member of an anti-Communist, white supremacist group called the Western Guard, said he painted only "White Power" and "Don Andrews is right" a reference to the leader of the organization. 'Streaking' latest fad on college campuses SEATTLE (CP) Eight men, wearing nothing but tennis shoes and ski goggles or hoods, ran across the University of Washington campus Tuesday as the "streaking" rage spread. Shouting "streak" and "streak for the college age men roared out of Smith Hall, a political science classroom building, and ran the equivalent of four or five city blocks before disappearing amidst the fraternity and sorority houses of Greek row Streaking, or running clad only in tennis shoes and headgear, is the latest college campus fad The UW incident was the first mass streaking incident reported in the state. A single streaker sped across the Gonzaga University campus in Spokane several days ago. Campus Police Sgt J. D. Moore said officers did not know about the streaking incident until after it happened and "a citizen called to tell us about it." One girl who was standing nearby when the men rushed past was quoted by a newspaper as saying "it's just a sorry comment that we've reverted back to the panty raid mentality of the 1950s. I wasn't impressed." Arm reattached Gus Palantas, 42, of Toronto is comforted by his wife, Mary as he rests in Toronto hospital. Mr. Palantas, who lost his left arm in an accident at work, had his severed arm reattached in a five- hour operation. Doctors are optimistic the surgery will be a success. The best to you from Palm.
