Mineral rights takeover planned EDMONTON (CP) Alberta plans to acquire mineral rights in the foothills that were grant- ed to private interests before the federal government trans- ferred control of mineral rights Gas royalty agreements under study EDMONTON (CP) The Al- berta government is still form- ulating policy for renewing oil and natural gas royalty agree- ments, says Bill Dickie, minis- ter of mines and minerals. The government was investi- gating several alternative meth- ods of charging royalties but Mr. Dickie declined to go into detail. "It's a lot more complicated than we thought." Current agreements, under which the government gets up to 16 2-3 per cent of the well- head value of petroleum prod- ucts, expire March 31. Mr. Dickie said the industry has not yet been brought into the government's considerations but will be when the policy i.s formulated. Public hearings would also be held. to the province early In tho century, says Environmeot Minister Bill Yurko. The takeover is proposed in draft provisions of a new sur- face reclamation act Mr. Yurko plans to introduce at the spring session of the legislature. Mr. Yurko said in an inter- view that mineral rights held by a number of companies in the foothills region "are fairly extensive." Principally involved in a pro- vincial takeover would be Can- more Mines Ltd., which oper- ates a strip mine in the Mt. Hundie region west of Calgary. Mr. Yurko said proposals for obtaining the rights are being circulated to interested groups prior to public hearing? to bo held next month by tlie ad- visory environment conserva- tion authority. He said the proposals call for compensation to be paid in spe- cific cases approved by cab- inet but the terms that would be applied are still being ex- amined.

John McGhee, said ho feared "someone was going io die" when the three young men stormed aboard the plane as it was boarding passengers at Albuquerque early Saturday. Onee the fLane was airborne, stewardess Betty Calibre said, she lied at knifepoint to con- vince "their leader that this air- plane couldn't fly all the way to Africa." McGhee said he tlien con- vinced the hijackers that he needed a refuelling stop. After the fugitives refused to let him fly to Atlanta or Miami, the plane landed at Tampa, Fla., where the 43 passengers were allowed to leave. A Federal Aviation Adminis- tration spokesman said Cuban officials informed the FAA that the trio was taken into custody and disarmed of two guns and a knife when the jet landed in Ha- vana.
