MARCH 30 Southminsttf Church HcH 11B) STREET ENTRANCE WALKER UNIT at the U C W OTTAWA (CP) The spectre of resource shortages stunting economic growth this year was acknowledged Tuesday by Energy Minister Donald Macdonald and Trade Minister Alastair Gillespie. In a statement to the Com- mons energy committee, Mr. Macdonald said "it is antici- pated that both material and demand shortages outside of Canada will have a larger in- fluence on Canadian real growth in 1974 than any internal shortages." Beyond 1974, the government is aiming at self- sufficiency in uranium, coal and minerals as well as oil. Mr. Gillespie told the Com- mons finance committee "material shortages in a wide range of industrial raw materials" threaten sustained economic growth at 1973 levels "These shortages extend to certain types of labor as he added. "To a very large extent, such shortages result from unprecedented world demand. Despite increased output, demand continues to grow faster than supply." Mr. Gillespie said his department will try to "ensure that Canadian industry has priority in the supply of materials and that industry is given every reasonable encouragement to continue to expand as quickly as it can do so on a viable basis." With business reporting high investment plans, and with resources more plentiful than in most countries, "we have most of the ingredients for a successful he said. Mr. Macdonald agreed that most resource problems origi- nate abroad. The country now is well en- dowed with uranium, "but without additional discovery, we could well face a shortage of uranium and thorium by the end of the decade." "Action is required to encourage exploration by industry and to assess the future potential of fuel resources in this country." Mr. Macdonald said the gov- ernment is working with in- dustry and the provinces to ensure long-run reserves, and the possibility of building uranium enrichment plants. He said current coal re- sources ensure adequate sup- plies in the long run, but we "have some short-term supply concerns to which we are giving increasing attention.'' Hymn was call for uprising KAMPALA (AP) The playing of a recording of Tennessee Ernie Ford singing Onward Christian Soldiers was the signal for a nationwide military uprising last Sunday against President Idi Amin, anti-Amin Ugandans report. The recording was played over Radio Uganda, but the revolt in the provinces never happened, and about 200 rebel troops in Kampala were left in hopeless battle with a far- larger force loyal to the Ugandan chief. The dissidents were not sure why the provinces did not react, but they suspected communications trouble, poor military tactics by the rebels and Amin's escape from an assassination attempt. The recording of the Christian hymn was broadcast when the rebels briefly took over the station.-Resentment against Amin, a Moslem, has grown among Christian troops since a recent visit to Uganda by Libyan President Moammai Khadafy, a militant Moslem. Some reports said up to 500 persons have been killed in the fighting and in a purge of the armed forces that began Mon- day Ugandan sources said re- venge squads killed a number of suspected rebel soldiers by shooting them in the knees, then dousing them with gasoline and setting them afire. Radio Uganda said a key figure in the revolt, a Lt.-Col. Elly, who had been governor of West Buganda province, fled the country. Reliable sources said he is in Zaire. "The situation throughout Uganda is Amin told a diplomatic reception. "I am free. I have no problem." Fiancee appeals to kidnappers SAN FRANCISCO (Reuter) Philosophy student Steven Weed went on television Tuesday night to appeal to the kidnappers of his fiancee, Patricia Hearst.

U.S. oil firms to restrict production' NEW YORK (Reuter) CBS News says Senate investigators say major United States oil companies have conspired for more than a decade to restrict crude-oil production to maintain artificially high prices. In 1968, Standard Oil of Cali- fornia prepared a secret public Tuesday by warned of "the problem of accommodating a large potential surplus of crude in '69 and over the next five years to 1973. The document referred to increasing supplies of crude oil from Libya, Nigeria, Australia and Indonesia. The CBS report says: "In elaborate tables, the document proposes ways to prevent that surplus by holding down crude-oil production around the world. "Senate investigators charge the plan was typical of manoeuvring by big oil to keep the price of oil from dropping. Standard Oil now says that the document in question is only a planning memo." Spokesmen for both Standard of California and for Exxon denied that any cartel agreement was entered into Bomb kills motorist BELFAST (AP) A bomb in a parked car exploded Tuesday night in Belfast, killing a passing motorist The police said the dead man was a "completely innocent victim." He was the 982nd confirmed fatality in Northern Ireland's Protestant-Roman Catholic warfare since August 1969. or that the major oil companies conspired to hold down production to keep prices high. But the CBS report says: "Senate investigators have evidence that the big seven oil companies, in addition to indi- vidual company planning, worked through a series of in- terlocking agreements to hold the oil supply down and the price up. "This is a secret agreement made between the seven major companies in agreement still in effect limit the production of oil in Iran. Senate investigators have obtained a copy of a se- cret government intelligence report showing that in Iraq four of the big companies actually plugged up oil wells that might have provided axtra crude." CBS says the oil shortage of last fall and winter was caused by a series of events eliminated the normal reserves of the big oil companies. The closing of the Suez canal, the delay in the Alaska pipeline, along with Arab pressures on big oil, meant that by 1973 there was no longer a reserve capacity available. For this reason, the Arab embargo last autumn caught the big oil firms at a crucial moment, resulting in severe shortages, CBS said.
