Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Hickel firing might be lesson to Greene OTTAWA (CP) Energy Minister J. J. Greene says jok- ingly that liis boss, Prime Min- ister Trudeau, can display his independence of mind by resist- ing President Nixon's example in firing Walter Hickel, counter- part of Mr. Greene in the U.S. cabinet. The dismissal of the U.S. inte- rior secretary was announced Wednesday, the day following liis return from Ottawa where lie and cabinet colleagues con- ferred about Irade and eco- nomic relations. "Mr. Iflckel has been told by Fall to deaths at Vancouver VANCOUVER (CP) Two women identified as sisters fell to their deaths Wednesday night from tire seventh floor of a hotel in downtown Vancouver in what police described as an apparent double suicide. Police identified them as May Davies, 48, and her sister, 'Mrs. Edith Patterson, believed to be in her 50s. A spokesman for the Devon- shire Hotel on West Georgia Street said the women booked in Tuesday morning and had paid for two days' accommoda- tion in advance. No note was found at the President Nixon that his serv ices are no longer Mr. Greene remarked severa hours later, "I hope the primo minister gets the message tha Canada is a unique, autonomou; and very different country." That was a smiling reference to a hope that Mr. Trudeau would not get similar ideas thai Mr. Greene is expendable. But oilier Canadian ment sources suggested there might be a lesson for Mr Greene in Mr. nickel's firing Informants familiar with Mr nickel's cabinet career suggesl that he had angered U.S. oil in- terests and the oilmen had com plained to President Nixon. CAUSED POLLUTION Mr. Hickel, the informants said', had affronted oilmen will criticism about pollution from undersea drilling off California and in the Gulf of Mexico. He demanded stringent anti-pollu- tion regulations enforced on off- shore operations. He was also insisting on tough rules for building a proposed oil pipeline across Alaska from the Prudhoe Bay find. He was to have issued Uie Alaska regula- tions next week, he said in Ot- tawa. While the reasons reported for Mr. nickel's dismissal had noth- ing to do with Canada-U.S. rela- tions, the ousted interior sccre- iary and Mr. Greene had tan- gled verbally in public and pri- THE UNIVERSITY OF LETKBRIDGE Application Deadline Spring Semester The University of leihbridge is currently accepting Applications For the Spring Semester WHICH COMMENCES JANUARY 11, 1971 Interested persons should contact the UNIVERSITY REGISTRAR'S OFFICE Before the Deadline of DECEMBER 11, 1970 J. ,T. GREENE He Ruffles 'Em yately about such issues jade in energy resources and pollution of the Great Lakes. Almost a year ago, after a December meeting in Washing- ion, (lie two men seemed Us see eye-to-eye on the idea of work- ng towards a continental pool- ing of all energy closely co-ordinated energy pol as Mr. Greene put it then. Within a few months, Mr. Ireene confirmed publicly in he United States "a very clear change" of Canadian thinking >n the that trade in energy would be negoli- ited on a commercial basis for different resources individually Mr. Hickel retained his vi- sion of a common, continental energy policy. OPPOSED BY CANADA As late as last Tuesday, fol- owing the U.S.-Canada minis- erial meeting, Mr. Hickel said le aim remained "a common nergy policy." Mr. Greene re- ected that idea and External Ufairs Minister Mitchell Sharp uggested that while Mr. Hickel might be thinking that wa Canada was not. In addition to talking at era purposes about energy polic Mr. Hickel and Mr. Greene co apparently wil out personal respective efforts to slow do' pollution of the Great Lakes. Virtually on the eve of t U.S.-Canada talks, Mr. Gree took U.S. authorities to ta publicly in a speech at Burlin ton, on tiie shore of Lake C tario, saying they were not pu ing their weight against pol tion. "f don't agree with that Mr. Hickel r e t o r t e sharply in Ottawa. At the closed mitiisteri meeting, the word was that Mr Greene put his criticism as fo cibly face-to-face with Mr Hickel as he had publicly Burlington. OUT OF TOUCH Mr. Hickel displeased liis bo, last May when a letter be wro :o the president became publi The letter by implication err cized the invasion of Cambod and suggested the administr lion was out of touch wi American youth. Mr. Greene similarly is sa :o have ruffled Prime Ministe Trudeau with speeches such i ;he one last week in Burlingto and another in Denver, Co ast May.

Informants say such utter ances upset not only the exter- nal affairs department but Mr Trudeau, who is said to prove of speeches that try to apply pressure or contain im- plied threats. Firm plans crude oil price Jiike CALGARY (CP) Great Northern Oil Co. Ltd. announced here it would increase its price for crude oil in three areas of western Canada by 25 cents a ban-el. The new prices range from a barrel for asphaltic crude at Hardisty in east Central Alberta to a ban-el fcr crude from the Weyburn Mi- dale field in southeast Saskat- chewan purchased at Cromer, Man. J. M. Wilkinson, Great Nor- thern vice president, said the increase is prompted by the con- viction Canadian oil should carry a higher price. United States producers re- cently increased oil prices by 25 cents a barrel and last week Husky Oil Ltd. announced an increase of 40 cents a barrel [or crude from the Lloydminster field on the Alberta Saskatch- ewan border. The Great Northern refinery at St. Paul, Minn., uses only Canadian crude and takes about barrels daily, but this is spected to increase to Darrels next year. Troops on the alert BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) The newspaper Al Jarida re- prted here that Egypt has put its land, air and naval forces on maximum alert to face a "war- like" Israeli buildup of troops and armor east of (lie Suez canal. The newspaper's Cairo corrc- spondent said the Israeli buildup was revealed by recent Egyptian spy flights over tile Sinai Desert. Tlie paper quoted a senior Egyptian government source as saying the ceasefire along the canal "is now passing through its most critical hours." A military spokesman in Tel Aviy denied the reports of an Is- raeli buildup along the canal and called the claim nonsense." Al Jarida asserted that Egypt- ian planes carried out a series of high-altitude reconnaissance flights over Israeli positions east of the canal during the weekend. It said the flights lasted 24 hours. Egypt has denied that the flights were made. In Tel Aviv, the Israeli press said today that Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Dayan is ex- pected to discuss the possibility of an Israeli return" to the talks when he visits the United States next month.
