Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Sharp signs loan ARUSHA, Tanzania (Reuter) - External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp signed an agree-ment today for a $14 million interest-free loan to the East African Community of Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. The loan is to enable the community, a kind of common market, to buy 35 locomotives for the railway it administers for the three member states. Sharp and community Secretary-General Zerubaberi Bigir-wenkya of Uganda signed the agreement in a ceremony at the organization's secretariat, situated in this small town in the heart of Masailand beneath the cloud-capped peak of Mount Meru. Observers saw the Canadian loan as a demonstration of confidence in the future of the three-nation community despite political differences b e t w ee n Tanzania and the new military regime in Uganda. Sharp today termed it "a bold experiment in international cooperation." The Tanzanian minister at the community secretariat, John Malecela, said the interest-free Canadian loan repayable over 50 years is an. example to other countries who could also lend money on similarly generous terms.

Mondoy, Msrch 15, 1971 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - 19 North oil pipeline talks are planned OTTAWA (CP) - Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien said Friday he will meet with presidents of the seven companieis developing oil reserves on Alaska's north slope to discuss a posible Mackenzie Valley pipeline. Mr. Chretien told the Commons he and Energy Minister J. J. Greene hope to meet the executives within two weeks. The c o n s o r t i u m of seven firms has been developing oil finds at Prudhoe Bay. It includes British Petroleum, Humble Oil, Mobil, Phillips, Union, Arco and Amerada-Hess Corp. Mr. Chretien said the purpose of the meeting was to discuss the guides set down last August by him and Mr. Greene for construction of a possible pipeline. The pipeline is a possible al- ternative to the proposed trans-Alaska pipeline that would link up with a tanker route to Washington state past the British Columbia coast. Mr. Greene told the House earlier that while the tanker route had been favored by the companies originally, it now is a "very real possibility" that the Mackenie Valley line will be built first. The tanker route has been criticized by government spokesmen because of the possible danger of oil spills from the huge vessels. The guides set out last August say Canadian producers must have access to a Mackenzie Val- ley pipeline, which would serve the central U.S. market. They also call for maximum participation of Canadian business in the development of the line, estimated to cost about $5 million for gas and oil lines. Mr. Chretien said the meeting with the oil executives might be held Monday, March 22.
