Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, November 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 19 Blakeney caught off guard REGINA (CP) Premier Allan Blakeney said Friday his government did not know until the night of the federal budget that Ottawa was going to count one-third of the' province's special oil revenue against federal equalization receipts. It was disclosed earlier Fri- day that federal officials ad- justed equalization payments last June to take account of some oil revenue. Mr. Blakeney, however, said in an interview that the province was aware only that the equalization calculations had taken into account the fact that Alberta had not put its oil revenues into a capital fund. The federal-provincial oil agreement of last March pro- vided that if the Western prov- inces' increased oil revenue went into special funds rather than ordinary government ac- counts, equalization payments would not be affected. There is disagreement be- tween Ottawa and Regina over whether special funds in both Alberta and Saskatchewan, or a special fund in Saskatchewan alone, were required under the agreement before Saskatche- wan's new oil revenue would be exempt from equalization calculations.

It was part of Calgary's contribution to Grey Cup football festivities. Ford gives Korea troop pledge SEOUL (AP) United States President Ford gave assurance Friday that the United States will maintain its troop strength in South Korea and, if the U.S. Congress goes along, spend up to million modernizing the South Korean armed forces. In a two-hour session with President Chung Hee Park, Ford also discussed South Korea's repressive domestic policies which have raised concern in the U.S. Congress and brought criticism of Park. Assistant State Secretary Philip Habib, a former am- bassador to Seoul, refused to tell reporters what was said between the two presidents on this matter. Press secretary Ron Nessen said Richard Smyser, a mem- ber of the National Security Council, would stay in Seoul after Ford's departure to hear complaints from five representatives of dissident religious groups. Dissidents demonstrating against the Park government in recent weeks had expressed fear that ford's visit would strengthen Park's position. Ford ends his 23-hour visit to South Korea early Saturday and flies on to a summit meeting with Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev near the Soviet far eastern port city of Vladivostok. The two leaders will spend the weekend trying to find the path to a 10-year treaty limiting offensive nuclear weapons and discussing other international problems. Ford said in a farewell ban- quet toast in Seoul: "I pledge tonight that the United States will continue to assist and sup- port you. Our our continue." The president began his visit to Korea riding through streets lined by some one million flagwaving welcomers. Ford stopped at the national cemetery to lay wreaths at a monument for the nation's military dead and at the tomb of Park's wife, killed on Aug. 15 during an assassination attempt on Park's life.

OTTAWA (CP) The four Western provinces received going to oil export tax- es between October, 1973. and March 31, 1974, federal spending figures released Fri- day show. In a related development, a finance department official said oil companies are con- sidering contesting in court some of the tax collections. The export tax took effect during a period when there was a series of increases in world oil prices. The tax was designed to bring the price of Canadian exports up to levels charged by other exporters. Between October and March the price for domestic crude oil was fixed at about a barrel and the federal and provincial governments agreed to a 50-50 split on the export tax. A new agreement that went into effect April 1 boosted the domestic price to a barrel. However, under the new deal, proceeds from the ex- port tax were to be used to subsidize refineries in and east of the Ottawa Valley which use imported crude oil at world levels than a barrel. Domestic crude oil supplies refineries west of the Ottawa Valley and the surplus is exported. The tax-sharing agreement under the old deal also includ- ed some revenue from natural gas. The breakdown on the prov- inces' share of the export tax under the old deal was: Al- berta, million; Saskatchewan, million; British Columbia, million; and Manitoba, million. The possibility of legal ac- tion over the tax concerns at what point the tax wai- assessed. The federal government had collected the tax on the basis of the price when the crude oi 1 came out of the pipeline at refineries in the U.S. QUALITY DENTURE CLINIC IODY DIETRICH Certified Dental Mechanic 303 5th Street South MUtcalf Building PHONE 328-7684 AUCTION SALE OF Good Furniture and Household Effects HURLBURT AUCTION SERVICE SALESROOM NO. 2 1916 2nd Avenue South MONDAY.
