Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta Cars inefficient as transport mode OTTAWA An ocean freighter carrying 100.000 tons oi goods is about times a better buy for the fuel dollar than a car transporting a 200- pound man. says a National Research Council study. The freighter gets its tons of goods around using the same energy cars would re- quire to move a much smaller pay load 1.000 men weighing only 100 tons. This is one finding of a study pu-partd by Dr. E. P. Cockshutt of the council's mechanical engineering divi- sion as part of a background .study for the Science Council ol Canada. When it comes to getting around as opposed to cargo airplanes are as good a buy lor the fuel dollar as are says the study. As a planes travel faster. On short hauls from the suburbs to the city and lor instance trains and par- ticularly buses live to 10 tunes more efficient than cars carrying only their drivers liut car pools ot four or more passengers are about as I'llicient as while the buses are twice as elhcient again as this. Supersonic aircraft are the biggest fuel guzzlers for the amount of work they do. reflecting the high cost of overcoming air resistence as speeds go up Iteyond the speed of sound. aircraft is about 1.5 times .is iiH'llicient as a car carry- ing a single In cargo transportation marine tankers con- sume by far the least amount luel for the pay Freighters are 20 to 100 times more efficient than and 100 to 500 limes more efficient than cargo air- cralt a gas pipeline .is a transportation system is only slightly less efficient than trucks An oil pipeline is about lour times more cf- licionl because oil moves through a pipeline at a slower speed with much less friction. The report says 33 per cent ol total energy used in Canada is for healing' Transportation accounted for 33 per cent half for road travel. 10 per cent Tor pipeline and tran- smission systems and six per cent for air and rail Industry uses about 25 per cent of the total Luckless B.C.

Lawyers representing the Indian and Eskimo peo- ple of the area filed papers in the high court Wednesday seeking the right to appeal the decision of the Quebec appeal court which allowed work to continue while appeals against the original stop-work order are being heard. The original court hearing ruled in favor of the Indians and ordered all work stopped. But the provincial appeal in allowing the province a said the work should be allowed to continue while the appeals are heard. The native people are ask- ing the Supreme Court to again apply the stop-work order while appeals are being They will argue that the project will be if work is allow- ed to continue. Speed timing device clocks five ways PRINCE B.C. A computer mounted under the 'dash of a patrol car will be helping the RCMP catch speeders more effec- tively in this about 350 miles north of Vancouver. Constable Lyle Kennedy of the district RCMP demonstrated how .a new speed timing device called the Federal Vascar 11 can clock speeders five ways. Unlike a conventional radar unit which will give readings only when the new device can be operated when a patrol car is following a meeting a being followed by a when a speeder is crossing an intersection from either or in a stationary position. tax money going back to provinces By PAUL JACKSON OTTAWA Energy Minister Donald Macdonald confirmed absolutely in the House of Commons Wednes- day that the estimated 175 million a month Ottawa is collecting from the a barrel export tax on oil will one way or another all go back to the producing province. the. controversial cabinet minister cautioned in replying to questions raised by Eldon Woolliams Calgary the min- ority Liberal government will determine how much of the staggering multi-million dollar bonanza is spent. Mr Wooll'iams had referred to statements made by Mr. Macdonald under questioning by Al- berta MPs in a par- liamentary committee hear- ing Nov. 14 in which the Rocky Mountain province's members were surprised to hear the Liberal minister say it had been decided that the producing provinces would somehow receive all the revenues raised from the a barrel tax. Thq Calgary ignoring attempts by Speaker Lucien Lamoureux to pass on to another asked Mr. Macdonald four times in the House of Commons to state that Alberta members were not mistaken in their belief that the tax or all go back to Alberta Mr Macdonald said the position he had taken was that the provinces will not suffer from government regulations and that proceeds of the export tax will go back in the first place to put the producing province in the position it would have been if their oil had been sold both for export and on the domestic market at the higher price which has been denied them by price As for the rest of the said Mr. the federal -government intended to embark on joint venture investments to further the energy resources in the producing provinces by use of the balance of the proceeds. The energy minister con- firmed that what Ottawa had in mind was to give between 40 to 50 per cent of the million a month in tax back to Alberta for use as the provin- cial government sees fit and to use the remainder for technological research or development of energy resources within the province from which it came. will depend very much on the actual royalty position of each of the producing prov- In the funds will be going back. Those in federal hands will be going back into federal programs for the purpose of stimulating resources in those he explained to the Commons. Mr. Woolliams wasn't quite satisfied with Mr. Mac- donald's answers and pointed out that he had given Mr. Mac- donald notice of the question in advance in writing just so there could be no misunder- standing. do not want there to be any misunderstanding because we usually get one answer one day and another the next said Mr. Woolliams repeating his ques- tion 'the minister can answer the question with a yes or no so that we can understand Upped popped Mr. Macdo- who replied with what Mr Woolliams wanted A quick and decisive Dead Alberta woman named Sask.

General Warren Allmattd will announce within the next tow weeks a new man to takeover the RCMP. ConuniMioner W L is due to retire at the end of the more than 35 years after he joined the force In Regina. A spokesman for UK minis- ter's office said this week sev- eral candidates for the job are being considered. Under RCMP regulations Commission Hiffitt should nave retired on his 35th an- niversary with the force in September. But be was kept on until the end of the year because of RCMP Centennial celebrations. There have been no hints about who will replace Mr. head of the man force since 1969. It was the climax of a dis- tinguished career during which he was elected the first Canadian president of the International Criminal Police commonly call- ed Interpol FORCE CRITICIZED The RCMP has had some solid achievements during the years Mr. Higgitt has been but for the first time its internal operations came under criticism. A former Jack wrote a magazine article in which he charged that RCMP officers perjure themselves in persecute' Indians to build up arrest statistics and falsify reports. And a former constable charged he was driven out of the force after being held in- communicado in a psychiatric ward on orders of one of his non-commissioned officers. Commissioner Higgitt denied the charges and there was no great controversy But the incidents did show that the which has almost legen- dary respect in could come under public criticism. The respect and affection in which the force is held by many particularly was shown last year when controversy raged over the use of the force's Mr. Higgitt had come to the conclusion that police stations and cars should be clearly muted to be seen eas- ily by people in need. Howls from the echoed in said that the government wai attempting to downgrade the name of the 100-year-old force bv not using its name It took considerable negotia- tion with provincial general before a compromS W. L. HIGGITT agreement was reached that the initials of the force should be displayed prominently in place of the large Police sign. The most dramatic event during Mr. Higgitt's period in office was the 1970 Quebec crisis. Bui his term also was mark- ed with modernization to keep the RCMP in the forefront of the world's police forces. His years saw everything from es- tablishment of computer ser- vices to an increased use of aircraft. The successful centennial celebrations held across Canada this year showed that the RCMP is as modern and efficient as any in the world.
