Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 30, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID - Friday, March 30, 1973 olorists beginning to pay-price for clean air Canadian PoW freed Lloyd Oppel, a Canadian missionary, shakes hands with Lt. Gen. William Moore upon arriving Wednesday at Clark Air Base in the Philippines from Hanoi. Between them are Adm. Noel Gayler, left, and U.S. Ambassador Henry Byroade. Oppel, 21, was released by the Pathet Lao in Hanoi. Mineral tax outlined VICTORIA (CP) - The British Columbia government proposes a three-level system of mineral land taxation which will come into effect Jan. 1, 1974, under legislation introduced in the legislature Thursday. ]\lines Minister Leo Nimsick brought in the Mineral Land Tax Act which provides for the taxation of land, the mineral rights to which are held by private individuals and not the Crown. The first level of taxation ap- ExportA CANADA'S FINEST CIGARETTE - WARNINQ:Ths Department of National Health and Welfare advises thsl danger to health . increases with amount smoked. plies to every owner of mineral land who will pay from 25 cents to $1 per acre, depending on the size of their holdings, if their land is located outside designated producing areas. This lax is payable not later than July 2 of every year and ranges from 25 cents for less than 50,000 acres and $1 where the acreage exceeds one million acres. The second level applies to production areas which are highly mineralized but where there is no operating mine. Inside these areas, owners will pay $2 per acre. In addition to this $2 per acre, the active mineral land production tracts will be assessed at a mill rate to be specified by the cabinet. Mr. Nimsick said the maximum rate that will be charged under this mill rate level will be a maximum 12.5 mills during 1974 and a maximum of 25 mills by 1975. Now York Times Service DETROIT - The American motorist is beginning to pay the price of the nation's effort to clean its air. And a good part of the price, ironically, is poor fuel economy - hundreds of millions of gallons of extra gasoline arc needed to power cars because of pollution controls, and at a time of national fuel shortage. Interviews with car owners around the nation confirm what Detroit executives and independent car testers have predicted - that the 1973 models do not mi as well as older cars. The complaints generally fall into three categories: The new cars consume more fuel than older models; they are harder to start and may stall once started, and they do not pick up speed the way an American car formerly did. "It's a terrible performer," Tony Orlando of Phoenix, Ariz., said of his new Ford Galaxie station wagon. "You go down the road and all of a sudden the engine just quits. It backfires through the carburetor and stalls very often." And, he complains, he gets only 10 miles to a gallon and the engine is hard to stop. "When you take the key out, it just keeps running," lie says. It doesn't have much pickup and it eats gas like crazy, more than my '65 Chevelle," Connie Remlingcr of Cincinnati says of her three-month-old 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle. COMPLAINS A New Jersey owner of a compact Plymouth Duster complains that his car, with 1,-100 miles, stalls in traffic even after it has been driven four or five minutes. An owner of a 1973 Thunderbird in Arizona says that "it doesn't get out of its own way," and refuses to accelerate quickly when flooded. "I never owned a car with this much horsepower that doesn't go anywhere," he said. Fuel economy and performance have been declining for several years, but the 1973 cars OPE RIGHT NOW!

Loofbourrow, Chrysler vice president for engineering, said that "using 1968 as the base, our 1973 models are off from 7 to 22 per cent in fuel economy, depending on the car and the engine, and that is not as much as some in the industry. It's chargeable to both emissions and safety." Henry Ford 2D, chairman of the board of the Ford Motor Company, estimated that fuel economy was off 5 to 7 per cent on his company's new cars. William D. Buckelshaus, administrator of the environmental protection agency, says "our studies show that starting in the uncontrolled pre-1968 cars, there has been a fuel penalty based on emission devices each year ranging from 6 to 11 per cent." On the 1973 models alone, an over-all fuel economy drop only of 5 per cent, spread over the more than 11 million cars to be sold this year, can mean an additional fuel use of a half-billion gallons of gasoline in a single year. Detroit engineers explain Hie cars' troubles as follows: To prepare for emissions controls of the future - not on cars of today - auto makers lowered engine compression ratios so the cars could run on lower-octane, nonleaded gasoline. That increased fuel consumption. To reduce a particular pollutant - the oxides of nitrogen, which are the brown element in smog - exhaust gas is regulated in the engine to cool the combustion flames because the oxides form faster in hot atmospheres. However, this hurts both economy and performance as the combustion process operates more efficiently under hot conditions. The timing of the engine explosions had been set to Telephone 327-5705 achieve performance and fuel economy. Meeting emission standards of today required setting this spark advance for fewer emissions, again hurting economy and performance. The 1973 cars have new protective bumpers, ordered by the federal government, and these and other, safety equipment add up to 100 pounds a car more, which affects performance and economy. Ruckelshaus says the declining economy in ear operation is caused by the use of air conditioners on cars, and by the large size and weight of American cars. But, in fact, the environmental controls impose additional penalties on econ omy and performance. The car makers and oil com' panies complain that future controls will cost more in economy and performance, and are mounting a drive to roll back the standards proposed for 1975 and 1976, and they may be getting some public sympathy for a change. "I wonder about those antipollution devices," said Donald Gibb, a Fargo, N.D., plumbing contractor who has a Chrysler Imperial. "You're burning more gas and there's supposed to be an energy crisis." Even Consumers Union, which puts out consumer reports, complained that the 1973's it was testing were balky during cold starts, and stalled or handled badly when the engine was running cold. Mileage, consumers union warned, could be as low as seven miles a gal Ion on the fullsize Buick Elec-tra and Mercury Marquis and eight miles a gallon en .a Chevrolet Caprice and Ford Ltd. The mileage of the intermedi ate - size Buick Century and Ford Torino could be as low as eight miles a gallon, while could fall to nine on the. Chevrolet Malibu, consumers union said. Lougheed opposed to long-term pact CALGARY (CP) - Alberta docs not want to be committed to a long-term policy on the Athabasca oil sands while the national and international energy scene is rapidly changing, says Premier Peter Lougheed. The government has been working on an oil sands policy and had indicated it would be announced this spring. The premier told the annual meeting of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Landmen that long-term policy should be formed but no commitment made. Concentrations should be on the shortrterm objective - dealing with the $700 million extraction plant proposed by Syn-crude Canada Ltd. The plant would be the second for the sands and the company has to meet an April 31 provincial deadline in deciding whether to go ahead. Questions of royalty levels and the form and degree of public Alberta participation in the Syncrude operation remain to be resolved. Those were areas expected to have been dealt with in the oil sands policy statement. Mr. Lougheed said a decision Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS (MULTILUX) OPTICAL PRESCRIPTION CO. to defer the long-term policy did not indicate any lack of gov eminent interest in additional development. No law yet on airport searches OTTAWA (CP) - Until federal legislation is passed, the only provisions requiring searches of airline passengers are those on the tickets airlines sell to customers, Transport Minister Jean Marchand told the Commons. He was replying to a question for Derek Blackburn (NDP- Brant), who said he had seen passengers being searched for a flight while only a few feet away other passengers were allowed to board an aircraft freely. Mr. Marchand said that until Parliament approves legislation amending the Aeronautics Act there is no law requiring searches. A bill to amend the act was introduced Jan. 22. It calls for searches of persons, personal belongings, baggage and cargo at airports and in aircraft. Mr. Marchand said the legislation would be coming before the House again soon.
