- THI LETHBRIDGI HIRAID - Monday, March 39, 1971 Sharp wants sea route for Alaska oil rejected OTTAWA (CP) - External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp says be wants the proposed West Coast sea route for ship-poing oil from Alaska rejected because it is dangerous, but he doesn't want to bargain with (he U.S. government to get his way. The minister made the statement on the Sunday CTV interview show Question Period. Mr. Sharp said American companies have to date been examining the alternatives of building a pipeline through Alaska, to carry oil and natural gas from Alaska's north shore to tankers on the south shore for delivery to the western U.S. mainland, and building one along Canada's Mackenzie River valley. Until now they have preferred the Alaskan route because it would not leave American territory, but now the threat of pollution from tanker accidents was making the companies look "more seriously" at the Mackenzie alternative. WILL MEET ROGERS A meeting would take place between himself and U.S. Secretary of State William Rogers over the pipeline question "just as soon as it can be arranged." "... As far as I know it's on." Asked if convincing the American government that the Canadian route was preferable would mean acceding to the U.S. inter est in forming a continental En ergy agreement with Canada, Mr. Sharp said: "I don't want to bargain about this. I want the line on the West Coast rejected because it's dangerous and then I want them to come and say to us what are the conditions under which we could use the Mackenzie. It's as simple as that." Mr. Sharp, as well as Energy British colony jittery HONG KONG (Reuter) - A bomb scare swept this British colony today, hitting the stock market and reviving memories of left-wing riots in 1967. Stock prices dipped by up to 2% per cent on a broad front. One unofficial estimate said $20 million was wiped off share values in morning trading alone. Traders blamed the decline on this bomb scare. Police said they detonated two bombs and investigated five false alarms from jittery residents in the last 48 hours since a cookie-tin bomb went off outside central government offices Saturday night as it was being defused. The blast blew off the right hand of police ballistics expert Norman Hill, who defused numerous terrorist bombs during the 1%7 riots. The Hong Kong government tried to dampen fears that the bombings were Communist-inspired, like the 1967 riots which were a spill-over of China's cultural revolution. Observers said it was unlikely that Peking was behind the bomb scare because relations between Britain and China have shown marked improvement in recent months. 'Sick little girls' RANKS FIRST British Columbia ranks first amongst the provinces in the value of fish landed. never sticks together *(reametles ^MACARONI LOS ANGELES (AP) - The defence has called them "sick little girls" and begged for their lives, hoping that jurors in the Sharon Tate murder trial will flinch at the idea of sendi three young women to their deaths in the gas chamber. Lawyers for Charles Hanson's women co-defendantas have stressed their youth and femininity, and in his final argument for Leslie Van Houten, 21, Max well Keith said: "How'mad, how insane these young girls must have been." Jurors spent Saturday deliberating the fates of Manson, Leslie, Patricia Krenwinkel, 23, and Susan Atkins, 22, after getting the case late Friday. They previously bad convicted the four and now may decree one of two possible sentences-life imprisonment or death in the gas chamber. They had Sunday off and resume deliberations today. MUST BE DEATH Deputy District Attorney Vin cent M. Bugliosi said: "If the death penalty is to mean anything in the state of California other than two empy words, this is the proper case. ... If any one of these defendants receives life imprisonment, the death penalty should be abolished in California. If this is not a proper case, no case ever will be." Should the women be decreed death, they would be the youngest females ever so sentenced to California's gas chamber. Of 502 persons executed in the green room at San Quentin since 1893, only four have been womeni-all over 30. Only one of 90 persons now awaiting execution is a woman, age 39. STONED TO DEATH The one woman now under sentence of death is Jean Oliver Carver, 39, convicted of beating a woman evangelist to death with a rock during a robbery at the woman's home. Federal courts have stayed executions pending a Supreme Court review of the constitutionality of the death penalty. The last execution in the U.S. was that of Luis Jose Monge who died in the Colorado State Penitentiary gas chamber June 2, 1967, for murdering his pregnant wife and three of his 10 children. The judge in the Tate trial cannot stiffen a jury-fixed pen- ( alty but he can reduce a death penalty to life imprisonment. Minister J. J. Greene and Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien, met officials of the U.S. companies with Alaskan oil interests on Parliament Hill last week. PRAISES ANDERSON The minister said David Anderson (L-Esquimalt - Saan-ich) has done "an excellent job" in appearing before a U.S. congressional committee investigating whether the Alaska pipeline should be built. The Liberal backbencher had been in trouble with the House leadership "because of some internal problems" recently, said Mr. Sharp, but he was pleased with Mr. Anderson's behavior on the pipeline issue. Mr. Anderson has criticized the proposed West Coast route as a pollution hazard, and has expressed doubts about the Mackenzie Valley route as well. Chairman of the Commons environmental affairs committee, Mr. Anderson has been removed from a Canada-U.S. in-t e r parliamentary committee that will discuss the oil route issue at its next meeting in May. His removal by the government followed his participation in debate on the subject in the House against the wishes of government whip Lloyd Francis. EATON'S A MOTHER'S lOVE-lsraeli Army Sgt.

Military presence required Ai^f S to protect costal resources OTTAWA (CP) - Canada's coastal resources of fish, miner-ails and oil could be pillaged by other nations if not protected by a firm military presence, the. president of the Navy League of Canada said today. L. D. McMurray told the annual meeting of the league Canada could relinquish its right to use its coastal resources wisely, but such a decision would be a "short term measure of expediency at the expense of Canada's future development." "We have an obligation to our youth of today and the futur. > ensure that the resources and employment of Canada's ocean areas are developed for them," he said. Mr. McMurray said it was worse than useless to make strong statements about Canadian sovereignty over its terri- torial waters if they cannot be policed. He noted that Canada's recent extension of its territorial waters, to 12 miles, had increased by 80,000 square miles the area of ocean to be patrolled. This added responsibility had come, he said, when the size of the armed forces was being reduced. Although praising the defence department for its willing co-operation at most levels, he took it to task for its consideration of a common uniform for all Canadian Forces officers and cadets. An identification mark on the I uniform would indicate to which | service-Army, Navy or Air Force-the member belonged. "I say this is wrong, because | cadets are not members of the armed forces." Mr. McMurray said it is unlikely that permanent force per-1 sonnel want cadets to look like I the military and he suggested that, at least to a degree, cadets join the Navy, Army or Air Cadets because of the uniform. The same held true of I women's auxiliaries, he said. The women might become disenchanted with a common uniform. SALE CONTINUES THROUGH WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7TH!

Held Over by Popular Demand Fairchild dies at age 74 NEW YORK (AP) - Sherman Mills Fairchild, 74, millionaire manufacturer and pioneer in photography and aviation, died Sunday after a long illness. Fairchild was chairman of the Fairchild-Hiller Corp., an aircraft manufacturer and designer of satellites, and of the Fairchild Camera and Equipment Co., producer mainly of semi-conductor devices. OTTAWA (CP) - There will be a Commons debate on or before April 30 concerning some type of permanent legislation to replace the anti-FLQ Public Order Act due to expire that day. Informants say the government will place some proposal before the Commons but its nature is not yet known. The proposal will not be for a royal commission into violence, however. The government is understood to have had a great deal of trouble trying to write legislation to replace the Public Order Act. Thus it may simply set up a special Commons committee to hear ideas from the public on what the legislation should be. The Public Order Act was specifically designed to combat terrorism by the Front de Liberation du Quebec. It was quickly drawn up to succeed im position of the War Measures Act which, the government conceded, was to severe for the circumstances. Prime Minister Trudeau used to make the occasional sarcastic remark about the armed forces and the RCMP. Not. any more. Informants say Mr. Trudeau mas tremendously impressed by the efficient operations of the armed forces and the Mounties during the FLQ business last fall and has told them so. Some Conservatives say they had hoped that Dalton Camp would abide by his statement "scratch one expert" after his unsuccessul campaign to help, the Nova Scotia Conservative! government get re-elected. Mr. Camp, former national president of the party, said publicly recently there is ho viable | alternative to the Liberal government. Conservatives here declined official comment but privately some had plenty to say, especially about Mr. Camp's electoral record. Mr. Camp, leader of the successful 1966-67 "dump-Diefenba-ker" campaign, lost two attempts to get elected to Parliament. He advised former premier Walter Weir of Manitoba to call a snap election against the NDP's Ed Schreyer, who won. Conservative Leader Richard Hatfield is said to have declined to accept Mr. Camp, a native [ New Brunswicker, in the New \ Brunswick election campaign. Mr. Hatfield won and became premier.

Murray McBride. Liberal MP for Lanark-Renfrew-Carleton, says his first reaction to Mr. Trudeau's secret marriage was exaltation that the Parliamentry Press Gallery hadn't got wind of it. "To completely beat the press and the gossip vultures is a feat so beautiful to behold that there will be chuckling for many a moon on the Hill over this one," he says. "Thank God for a prime minister who won't be cowed by a press gallery." Revenue Minister Herb Gray, responsible for customs censorship of imported books, has told Parliament that censorship is based on "internal guidelines which are based on the sense of community standards as reflected in court decisions made under the Customs Tariff Act and related sections of the Criminal Code." The revenue departmnt does not keep a list of books it has banned. (8) PLAYTIME PROJECT PAPER. 75 sheets (25 assorted colours) of construction OQ* paper.
