(APJ Only one objection was pre- sented during a public hearing on plans by a Canadian oil company to construct a mile pipeline from Alberta through North Dakota and other slates to Ohio. Three representatives of Dome Petroleum Ltd. of Cal- gary told the hearing that pro- tection of the environment was given prime consideration in the construction and operating plajis. The hearing was held by the North Dakota PubUc Service Commission to consider the firm's request for certificate of public convenience to construct and operate the proposed line as a common carrier. The only objection came from D. C. Maclntyre of Bill- ings, Mont., supervisor of the Custer National Forest. His comments, contained in a let- ter, objected to proposed rout- ing of the pipeline across the Cheyenne national grasslands in the southeastern part of North Dakota. The application to the com- mission was submitted earlier this year by Dome Pipeline Corp., a wholly owned subsi- diary of Dome Petroleum. The 16 inch buried pipeline would be used to transport liquified petroleum gases from Edmonton and Empress, Alia., to Green Springs, Ohio.

Presenting the first budget of the I'rogres s i v c Conservative government, he said will be spent by the deportment on non capital projects; that Lsf the government will see no direct benefit from tho outlay. This is up 31.6 per cent from the 1971 72 forecast of Capital expenditures, however are down 25.3 per 000 in 1972-73 from the previous year. SLIGHT HIKE Thus over all spending will be up by only 6.3 per cent. "The Alberta Mr. Miniely said, "has been built on the dual foundation of agricul- ture and the petroleum indus- try. "Our agricultural sector has unfortunately experienced de- clines in net farm income dur- ing 1969 and 1970 although there was some improvement in 1971. "This situation in rural Al- berta requires new policies and approaches. the future growth of our province will depend on our abil- ity to guide our economy throu gh the tra nsil ion fro in a resource and agricultural orien- tation to a balanced economy of botii pri mary industry and secondary manufacturing.'' Ji Tarke ting procedures h a ve been a major source of com- plaint by the department of ag- riculture and, with this in mind, the province intends to spend on a "new agricul- tural marketing thrust, an in- crease of 124 per cent over ex- penditures for this purpose in 1971-72." Also planned Is an outlay of for family farm de- velop ment, a in- crease, and million for capi- tal advances to the new Agri- cultural Development Fimcl. Tho government liasn't made it clear whether this fund, which eventually is to amount to million, will be available to farmers in the form, of loans or grants or a combination of these.

Phons 327-2747 EDMONTON (CP) Tax; breaks for senior citirens were outlined in the 1972-73 budget presented lo the Alberta Legis- lature Friday night. The budget, the first prepared by the province's new Progres- sive Conservative government, contains a new S4.5-million pro- gram that will exempt elderly homeowners those 65 or old- er from paying provincial education taxes.

He would not Say what was learned in the conversation hut added: "R looks promU- ing." The. mayor said Mr. would probably issue a ment on Ihe plant Monday.

Saskatoon and Moose Jaw have both been wing to have the proposed tractor plant lo- in their rommunilicfl. a 30 mill property lax to help finance basic school costs. The new program, to be known as the Senior Citizens' Shelter Act, provides mil- lion from pensioner-home owners will get a refund of the tax. There will be a refund only when (ax exceeds existing annual homeowner tax discounts for all homemvners and Sl.V) for homeowners receiving the federal guaranteed income supplement.

The budget also provides million for con-structdon of sen- ior citizens' hovising and 000 for senior citizens' homes grants. In January, the government exempted senior citizens from pacing premiums for medical, drug and optional health card services, a move that will cost 511.9 million in the 1972-73 fis< cal year.
