Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 10, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Suddenly coal is back in fashion Alberta voyageurs Five Rick John Lee Ander- Mike Gus Summerville and their dog stop in on their mile canoe trip from Canada to New Orleans. Their dike to Mardi Gras should reach New Orleans in mid-February. They claim this is the world's longest inland canoe trip. HALIFAX Suddenly coal is back In fashion. Prompted by the mounting energy Nova Scotlans are looking once more to their vast reserves of untapped coal in deep deposits from Brough- ton in eastern Cape Breton to River Hebert near the New Brunswick border. Caught in a squeeze between rising production costs and shrinking the Nova Scotia coal industry has been in a decline since the early 1950s. At least 17 collieries have been closed and the Cape Bre- ton coal once dotted with bankbeads and miners' has only three operating mines one of them idle for months follow- ing a fire. Coal-mining as a way of life has all but disappeared from such communities as Chimney Thorburn and Springhill. FEWER MINERS As a mining has been steadily disappearing until a work force of a decade ago has shrunk to Nova Scotia's soft deposited in immense beds but frequently in narrow seams miles from the was all but written off a few years ago. One report gave the industry 15 years at the best. Although disaster led direct- ly to closure of such mines as Springhill's No. 2 and No. 4 collieries following accidents which claimed 114 miners' lives in two it was mainly economics that put the squeeze on coal-mining. But Premier Gerald Ottawa has little hope Arabs will release oil OTTAWA The gov- ernment holds little hope that any renegade Arab oil state will break the united Arab ex- port policy and ship more fuel Eastern Canada. Energy Minister Donald -Macdonald says he does not foresee any chance that the Arabs will lose the un- precedented unity they achieved in agreeing to re- duce production and ban ship- ments to countries they con- sider unfriendly evidence shows they will stay Canada has escaped the Farm prices dip but receipts up OTTAWA Average farm prices declined four per cent in largely be- cause of lower prices for livestock and Statistics Canada reported Friday. But prices were still some 1 38 per cent higher than a year the report showed. The index of agricultural prices at the farm level stood at 185.0 in com- pared with 192.4 the month before and 133.3 a year the report said. were registered in all provinces except it said of the September price drop Quebec's farm price index rose nine-tenths of one per the figures showed. Declines were 35 per cent for Prince Edward 3.9 per cent for Nova 10 per cent for New 4.6 per cent for five per cent for three per cent for five per cent for Alberta and 1.7 per cent for British Colum- bia. In another Statistics Canada said farmers' es- timated cash receipts the first nine months of the year including all provinces except Newfoundland totalled S4-7 up billion from the corresponding period last year. The figure covered all cash receipts from fanning oper- ations including the sale of farm Canadian wheat board participation payments on previous years' grain net cash ad- vances on farm-stored grains in Western Canada and deficiency payments by the agricultural stabilization board. Farmers cash receipts for the nine months for Prince Edward Island totalled up million from the corresponding period of Nova Scotia up New Brunswick up Quebec up On- tario up Manitoba Sas- katchewan up Alberta up British Columbia up million. Draft- dodging minister jailed LITTLE Ark. A 33-year-old United Church of Canada minister has been sentenced to three years in prison for having fail- ed in to keep his local military draft board in- formed of his current address. Rev. Thomas Lee who was born in Little left the United States more than 10 years ago for where he became a citizen. Before sentencing Thur- District Court Judge J. Smith Henley said he felt compelled to give York prison otherwise it would appear the court was granting amnesty to persons who fled to Canada to avoid the draft. who returned to the United States a year ago to study for a doctorate at Tulane University in New Aid he had not asked for amnesty and that he was not the draft- as he said he had been portrayed. He turned himself in Aug. 10 after learning that the FBI was looking for him. At his trial here Oct. the jury acquitted him of fail- ing to report for induction as ordered in but found him guilty of failing to keep his draft board informed of his current address. Dent York's said an appeal will be launched. Judge Henley freed York on bond to allow him to finish teaching two counts at Tulane University and spend Christmas with his family be- fore reporting to begin his prison term. who said he moved to Canada in 1962 find worked for an Ottawa paper and lived for in New Brunswick before his ordination. label ot unfriendly customer that has befallen the United States and the Netherlands. But as the Arab states reduce their oil production by more than a quarter of normal shortages seem bound to hit Eastern Canada where refineries depend on imported oil. The Arab states have muted their usual squabbles since the October war with Israel in a rare show of common action aimed at influencing the pol- icies of their North American and European customers to- ward the Middle East conflict. DIFFERENCES NOTED But Mr. Macdonald noted that some differences have emerged in their approach toward Canada. He said Saudi Arabia has re- fused to ship oil bound for the terminus of the oil pipeline to Montreal. But Abu had withheld such a ship- ment has agreed to send oil to the Portland pipeline after being given assurances it will not be sold in the United States. The Arab states ship about 30 per cent of Canada's oil im- which total about 1 mil- lion barrels a day. The government may also have problems with other for- eign suppliers. of 40 per cent of insisted on supply agreements through government to govern- ment talks. The Canadian Commercial a Crown has been assigned to negotiate with Venezuela. OTHERS CAGEY Other supplying countries are playing their cards carefully. now supplying about four per cent of Cana- dian has made no commitment to increase sales to replace lost Arab supplies. A spokesman for the Nigerian embassy said Friday his Vene- zuela would insist on dealing directly with the government in bargaining for increased shipments. support the Arab he noted But he add- ed that Nigeria has so far kept its politics separate from its oil export policy. Other suppliers are which supplies 16 per cent of Canada's oil five per and Colombia one per cent. Cancer drive total higher TORONTO The Canadian Cancer Society an- nounced yesterday its annual public campaign for cancer research has raised an estimated an increase of more than million over last year. who has named a special i mission to look into all possi- ble new sources of energy in face of oil shortages ana ris- ing fuel costs in Eastern reasons that the gap between coal and oil must be narrowing. Mr. Regan's Liberal govern- ment has expressed particular interest in the Cumberland one of the Maritimes' biggest deposits which in the late 1940s was said to contain enough recoverable coal to sustain the existing mining ef- fort for up to 50 years. The major Cumberland now all were produc- ing about two million tons at the time. INTEREST RENEWED There remain inherent eco- nomic problems in fields where the cost of just getting the coal up into the has been high and en- vironmentalists recall the air pollution of the coal burning but with the fuel Nova Scotia is looking closely at the possibility of opening new mines or reopening some of the former pits. In addition to high produc- tion costs resulting from the excessive depths of the the Nova Scotia industry could never have competed with American coal in the central Canadian market without the benefit of subventions. These payments from the federal treasury to the railways on a per-ton basis made it possible for Cape Pictou and Cumberland coal to reach boiler-rooms as far inland as Ont. If coal-mining does get a new lease on it will have borne out the frequent predic- tions of William F. president of District 26 United Mine Workers. Mr. a former coal- miner at New argued during the late 1950s and early 1960s against mine partly on the grounds that the coal would some day be needed to offset energy shortages FARM SIZES In farms have more than 480 acres and have more than 160 acres.
