By Bryan Wilson Lougheed Calls For Decentralization By ETC SWIHART Herald Staff Writer TABER Decentralization, for lack of a better word, is one key to the socio-economic development of Alberta, said provincial Opposition leader Peter Lougheed, speaking to the Taber Junior Chamber of Commerce Wednesday. It would be better to think of a balance of growth across the province. He said Alberta has passed the agricultural phase and the petroleum phase and is on the threshold of a third phase where growth for growth's sake should be shifted to growth for quality's sake. "A build-up in all areas of the province is needed for this to come he said, "lylth Lethbridge being a prime example of how a government can stimulate economy." He said the University of Lethbridge has made Leth- bridge go ahead and there is no reason five or six other small- er centres can't establish post secondary schools to produce similar results'.

Smoke From Slash Fires Covers South Smoke over southern Alberta is coming from logging slash burning in eastern B.C. Slash is rotten trees, branches and bushes. Slash burning is being done at several points between the Alberta-B.C. border and Cran. brook, B.C. There are no forest fires in southern Alberta or eastern B.C. The fire hazard is increas- ing toward the extreme danger point with the steady hot weather. Sunny skies and above-aver- age seasonal temperatures will prevail in Alberta, un- der the influence of a high pressure system. It was 80 degrees Wednes- day. Daytime highs are expect- ed to be in the BO-degree range, dropping to 40 overnight. post secondary institution to really get on its feet." In other matters, 42-year- old leader of the Progressive Conservative party acknowl- edged that Alberta does have the highest per capita welfare costs m Canada. Under the present system, there are no incentives to get people into the labor fores. "Retraining programs, espe- cially at the adult level, should >e he said, "With :he amount ot welfare depend- ing upon the amount of retrain- ing, up to a certain point."

Never Any Oil Quotas Says Lethbridge MP By JOAN BOWMAN Herald Staif Writer Lethbridge MP Deane Gund- ock, a member of an all-party larliamentary sub committee in resources, said Wednesday there "never were any real quotas" set by the U.S. on oil mports from Canada. President Nixon's decree last spring that crude oil from Can- ada would be limited to larrels a day up to Decem- ier, 1CT, was merely a ploy 'to appease certain notably domestic oil producers and U.S. importers of cheap off-shore oil from Venezuela and Africa. The United States govern- ment announced Tuesday that ts oil policy would be relaxed o allow for an estimated addi- tional import of barrels a day. Mr. GundlocK, currently re- cuperating from a back ail- ment in St. Michael's General Hospital, suggested it had al- ways been a matter of time be- fore the U.S. asked for more oil "because of America's ter- rific demand." Also announcefl Tuescay was purportedly the biggest single increase of natural gas exports since Canada began selling gas to the U.S. in the late 1950s. The increase amounted to 6.3 trillion cubic feet of gas over 15-20- years, raising the total export to 18 trillion feet. (A trillion is a million million.) Mr. Gundlock said Alberta should be asking more money for its natural gas "because the U.S. needs it so badly and likes it so much." The increase of both oil and gas' exports has led to some speculation that the Liberal government is drifting Canada into a continental energy deal. The Progressive Conserva- tive MP said Canada must realize it is inent and SMILEY'S PLUMBING BASEMENT BATHROOMS REMODELLING Phona 328-2176 become in- ,'olved in continental resource support but the problem of an energy pact lay in retaining the country's identity. I'm afraid we-fl lose con. rol of our own Mr. Sundlock said. "If we took care of our an en- ,rgy agreement would be mu- uaUy beneficial to Canada and he U S. But there remains the hreat that Canada would de- ault its hold on its own com- modities. The subcommittee on which he serves studies the use of Ca- nadian water resources by the US a practise which has also raised the spectre of loss of control by Canada. He said the committee has given thought to proposing that he Rockie Mountain trench be lammed. This would affect water levels through the Grand Coulee Dam in northern Wash- ington. The Grand Coulee backs up water to Trail, B.C. and pro- duces electrical power for the western states, including the large cities of California. Mr. Gundlock said the com- mittee was concerned that "our good Canadian water" is- suing from the Rockies is gov- erned in the lower 'Columbia, over which Canada has no con- trol. The MP suggested, however, that the Liberals "probably wouldn't sign a continental deal any more readily than any other party. "Our committee was just as concerned when the Conserva- tives were in power."
