Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 27, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Hickel firing might be lesson to Greene OTTAWA CCP) Energy Minister J. J. Greene says jok- ingly that Ins boss, Prime Min- ister Trudeau, can display his independence oi mind by resist- ing President Nixon's example to 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 Iris retail from Ottawa where he and cabinet colleagues con- ferred about trade and eco- nomic relations. "Mr. Hickel has been told by Fall to deaths at Vancouver VANCOUVER (CP) Two women identified as sisters fell to their deaths Wednesday night from tte seventh floor of a hotel in downtown Vancouver in what police described as an apparent double suicide. PoEce identified them as May Davies, 48, and her sister, 'Mrs. Edith Patterson, believed to be in her 59s. 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 scene President Nixon that his serv. ices are no longer Mr. Greene remarked several hours later. "I hope the prime minister gels the message thai Canada is a unique, autonomous and very different country." That was a smiling reference to a hope that Mr. Trudeau would not get similar ideas that Mr. Greene is expendable. But other Canadian govern- ment sources stiggestefl there might be a lesson for Mr. Greene in Mr. nickel's firing. Informants familiar with Mr. Hickel's cabinet career suggest 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 with 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 the Alaska regula- tions next week, he said in Ot- tawa. While the reasons reported for Mr. Hickel's dismissal had noth- ing to do with Canada-U.S. rela- tions, the ousted interior secre- tary and Mr. Greene had tan- gled verbally in public and pri- THE UNIVERSITY OF LETHBR1DGE I III Application Deadline Spring Semester Tlis University of lelhbrldge is currently accepting Applications For the Spring Semester WHICH COMMENCES JANUARY 11, 1971 Interested persons should contact the UNIVERSITY REGISTRAR'S OFFICE Before tha Deadline of DECEMBER 11, 1970 J. .1. GREENE He Ktifflcs 'Em yately about such issues as trade in energy resources and pollution of the Great Lakes. Almost a year ago, after a December meeting in Washing- ton, the two men seemed to see eye-to-eye on the idea of work- ing towards a continental pool- ing of all energy closely co-erdinated energy pel- as Mr. Greene put it then. Within a few months, Mr. Greene confirmed publicly in the United States "a very clear change" of Canadian thinking on the that trade in energy would be negoti- ated 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- lowing the O.S.-Canada minis- terial meeting, Mr. Hickel said the aim remained "a common energy policy." Mr. Greene re- jected that idea and External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp suggested that while Mr. Hickel might he thinking that way, Canada was not. In addition to talking at cross purposes about energy policy, Mr. Hickel and Mr. Greene col- apparently with- out personal respective efforts to slow down pollution of the Great Lakes. Virtually on the eve of the U.S.-Canada talks, Mr. Greene look U.S. authorities to task publicly in a speech at Burling- ton, on the store of Lake On- tario, saying they were not pull- ing their weight against pollu- tion. "I don't agree with that at Mr. Hickel retorted sharply to Ottawa. At the closed ministerial meeting, the word was that Mr. Greene put his criticism as for- cibly face-to-face with Mr. Hickel as he had publicly in Burlington. OUT OF TOUCH Mi-. Hickel displeased his boss last May when a letter he wrote to the president became public. The letter by implication criti- cized the invasion of Cambodia and suggested the administra- tion was out of touch with American youth. Mr. Greene similarly is said to have ruffled Prime Minister Trudeau with speeches such as the one last week in Burlington and another in Denver, Col., last May. In Denver, he tended to scold the United States for failing to ftcognize nationalist sensitivi- ties in Canada, He indicated Top salesman wins lawsuit PITTSBURGH (AP! Wil- liam Brown, 41, had been his company's top insurance sales- man and rose to division sales manager in 1965, but suddenly was fired. He sued, Wednesday, a federal court jury awarded Brown to compensate him for back wages and slan- der.

Think a bit about'Blue'. ftnd smile. that tf the United States wanted the Canadian natural gas it was seeking, then it had better buy the oil Canada was trying to sell. 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 hike CALGARY (CP) Great Northern Oil Co. Ltd. announced here it would increase its price for crude oil in three areas of western Canada by 23 cents a barrel. Tile new prices rang_e from a barrel for asphaltic crude at Hardisty in east Central Alberta to a ban-el fcr crude from the Wcyburn Mi- dale field in southeast Saskat- chewan purchased at Cromer, Man. 3. 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 for erode 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 expected to increase to barrels next year. Troops on the alert BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) The newspaper Al Jarida re- ported 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 the Suez canal. The newspaper's Cairo corns- spondent said the Israeli buildup was revealed by recent Egyptian spy flights over tlie Sinai Desert. Tlie paper quoted a senior Egyptian government source saying the ceasefire along the canal "is now passing through its most critical hours." A military spokesman in Tel Aviv 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 cast of the canal during the weekend. It said the flights lasted 24 hours. Egypt has that the flights were made. In Tel Aviv, tlie 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. Prime Minister Golda Meir told a political meeting Wednes- day that Israel might return In the Jarring talks under new terms, indicating that Jerusa- lem would not insist that Cairo its missiles from the canal zone. Dayan has indicated he favors s mutual withdrawal of Israeli and Egyptian armor from the canal, allowing it to reopen.
