Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 40-THE LETHIRIDQC HERALD November 1173 U.S. government may ration fuels WASHINGTON President Nixon is planning to meet an Arab-instigated oil shortage in the United States with an emergency conserva- tion program which may be unveiled today. Rejecting pressure to resign over the Watergate political Nixon called a cabinet meeting Tuesday to discuss a possible fuel- rationing plan and other measures to meet the oil em- bargo imposed by Arab countries against the United States. Officials estimated that the Arabian to reduce world support for Is- leave the U.S. up to 20 per cent short of its oil re- quirements within a matter of months. Nixon is reported planning to ask Congress within a few days for new power to conserve fuel supplies. He also may make a television possibly for public support of his conserva- tion program. Some politicians see this likely step partly as a political manoeuvre by Nixon to steer public attention from Watergate. STEPS OUTLINED Informants said Nixon's message to Congress likely will request authority to close shops and factories to suspend clean-air laws and allows use of fuel and to prepare for possible gasoline rationing through an emergency petroleum supply committee. Nixon will likely outline the program to Democratic and Republican leaders of early today. The White House said Nixon plans series of suggestions and handledby the government and partly through the presidential appeal to the public. John Nixon's energy has told the president that in the long voluntary curbs would be insufficient to meet the shortage. Duke head of the interior department's oil and gas said the situation has changed so dramatically that now the administration is talking of the need to reduce fuel consumption to less than 1972 use. Before the Arab oil Ligon and other experts pre- dicted the U.S. would fall short of its home heating oil needs by at least barrels a or possibly as much as barrels a day depending on cold refinery breakdowns and other factors. SHORTAGE GROWS The Arab dwarfs the original shortage Wiretap bill change rejected OTTAWA The Com- mons justice committee re- jected Tuesday pleas from provincial attorneys-general for a reversal of a change the committee made to the government's wiretapping bill Justice Minister Otto Lang relayed the op- position of police and attorneys-general to an amendment passed by the committee earlier this year. The amendment would out- law use in court of evidence obtained from an illegal and Mr. Lang said outside the committee he con- siders it to be a Ronald Atkey St. who originally moved the said in an interview that he con- siders the pleas from the at- torney-general to be the effect of a strong police lobby. They did not reflect provincial government policy. Under the bill presented by the government almost all wiretapping is outlawed. Approval by a judge is necessary before police can intercept conversations and evidence from the in- terception can be used in a prosecution. But the bill did allow use of evidence that was uncovered as a result of an illegal wiretap. In other words the intercepted conversation could not be used in evidence but if that conversation led police to other that evidence could be used. The majority of the com- both Liberals and opposition approv- ed the amendment that would outlaw that indirect evidence. Mr. Lang gave copies of wires and letters op- posing the amendment from these How- ard Pawley of Roy Romanow of Gordon Bennett of Prince Ed- ward Alex Macdonald of British Allan E. Sullivan of Nova Jerome Choquette of T. Alex Hickman of Newfoundland He said he also has an opposing wire from Justice Minister George Kerr of Ontario. James Jerome chairman of the com- also passed on a letter of opposition from the Cana- dian Association of Police Chiefs. A move to have a subcom- mittee consider the possibility of hearing representations from at least some of the at- torney-general was defeated with the Conservatives and New Democrats voting against the Liberals. Mr. Lang said outside the committee he would probably seek to have the amendment defeated in the Commons. nothing short of a dis- he told a reporter. In the committee he said there were two .strong objec- tions to outlawing threatening the U.S. with loss of some 2 million to 2.5 million of petroleum each day. The shortage already has hit Europe. Belgium and the Netherlands have banned Sun- day driving to counter reduc- tions of Arab petroleum. Other countries are contemplating other measures. Europe's shortage is in- directly hitting the U.S. through the fuel requirements of its 6th Fleet in the Mediterranean. Tankers of U.S. petroleum have sailed from to replace fuel no longer avail- able to the fleet from Italian refineries. NATO forces in as well as their home depend even more heavily on Arab oil. And so does Japan. SUPPLIES SHARED Interior Secretary Kodgers Morton said if things get bad enough for U.S. friends Americans may have to their presumably by allowing more available foreign oil to go elsewhere. The administration has started a program to cut its own fuel consumption by seven per cent and has urged the public to reduce domestic use by five per cent. Airlines have out flights from their schedules. Congress is also consider- ing action. It is far too early to predict what such legisla- tion would eventually contain.

Oil-short countries endorse Arab demand BRUSSELS The Eu- ropean Common wor- ried about Arab oil cuts decid- ed Tuesday to endorse the Egyptian demand that Israel pull back its forces to the Oct. 22 Middle East ceasefire lines. Statements by the foreign ministers of the nine Market countries also said any peace agreement should be founded on Israeli withdrawal from Arab territories occupied in the 1967 war. The ministers called for re- spect of the of who the Israelis consider are bent on destruc- tion of the Jewish state es- tablished in what used to be Palestine. Although there was little reference to the oil problem in the the Market countries obviously hoped that Arab countries would be dis- couraged from further restrictions on oil supplies for Western which receives about 80 per cent of its oil from the Middle East. INCREASING CUT That supply already has been cut by 15 per cent and Arab oil producers announced Monday they were increasing the cut to 25 per cent. The autoritative Middle East Economic Survey said the Monday announcement a significant es- calation in the use of Arab oil as a in the fight against Israel and its sup- porters. The journal added that the new level was about 17 to 18 per cent of the total volume of oil moving in world trade prior to the outbreak of the war Oct. 6. The cuts have already caus- ed several European countries to initiate energy-saving pro- grams Belgium and the Netherlands have adopted a ban on Sunday pleasure driving. The hit by a total embargo because of their pro-Israeli position dur- ing the also urged slower driving. West Germany is reported to be considering similar measures. Denmark lowered speed banned high-octane gasoline and suggested that traditional Christmas lighting displays be given up. URGES SPEED CUT France banned the sale of gasoline in containers and rec- ommended a voluntary reduc- tion of speeds on super- highways to 62 miles an hour. It also recommended a drop in room temperatures. The Market foreign ministers were vague about the Netherlands' plea for help in coping with the oil ban. The ministers said only that the Market governments were of the inter- dependence of the members' Since most oil shipped to the Netherlands is for use in other European countries and since much of Europe depends on Dutch natural it is ex- pected that help may be but through the com- plex network of shipping and pipelines controlled by the great multinational oil com- panies.

In addition to cutting off oil exports to the United Holland and countries that re- export oil to the United the Arabs have made up a list of favored countries that will continue to receive Arab oil equal to their import levels during the first nine months of the the oil journal said.
