The remaining options are understood to include a system of income supplements for the working poor plus a guarantee for those unable to work, a guaranteed annual income ap- plied universally and a tax credit system designed to help those in need.

Alberta T2P OH5 Tel Telex. 038-24710 in April, 1973, said the ministers are reaching the stage where policy decisions are being made Mr. Lalonde said at the close of the first day of the two-day conference that the ministers will have several more meetings before the spring The ministers had hoped to work out a basic pattern for an income maintenance system at this meeting. Earlier Tuesday, Saul Miller, Manitoba's minister, called for some discussion of financing of the proposed revised program. In a only docu- ment issued from the Mr Miller said costs should be considered, because failure to talk about money could have a negative effect on the talks. "With about five months re- maining until the conference, at which it appears we will have to make some final, and perhaps irreversible decisions about the future nature and di- rection of social security pro- gramming in this country, I think it is essential that we be- gin now to face the financing issue in a positive Mr. Miller said He said if a complete' system cannot be introduced immediately, some considera- tion should be given to the in- troduction of a partial income supplementation and support program in 1975. After the meeting, Mr. Miller said the ministers would have to deal with costs before irreversibly locking themselves into one formula.

(AP) The operator of the Gallatin County auto graveyard near Bozeman says he is quitting in protest against unfair com- petition from the county. Clinton Cain, owner operator of an auto wrecking service, has protested against the county's buying a truck to haul cars to the coun- ty yard. Cam said the county should hire local wreckers instead. The junk disposal effort is part of a 1971 legislature approved plan. VIENNA (Reuter) The secretary-general of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) warned oil-consuming countries Tuesday against us- ing threats and pressures to try to solve their energy crisis Dr Abderrahman Khene of Algeria, the chief executive of the 13-country organization, said "Those who only view the problem from the angle of getting what they want on their own terms are mis- leading themselves as well as the peoples they are supposed to lead." Khene's statement was taken as a response to U.S. State Secretary Henry Kissinger's proposal last week that Western countries should cut oil imports and act together to recycle vast sums of oil money earned by OPEC governments. Khene said the OPEC coun- tries had shown a very open- minded spirit of co-operation toward proposals that all par- ties concerned should get together to find ways and means of coping with the situation. "This does not seem to be the approach of the consuming countries whose threats and pressures of every kind are being voiced." "Those who think that solu- tion can only be brought about by threats and groupings of nations with a view to continue enjoying comfort at the expense of the major part of humanity are not comprehending the emerging new world." Khene said OPEC action in raising crude oil prices to record levels last year reveal- ed "a deep-seated and serious illness in the structure of the web of world industrial economy."
