-----------------------------------------Friday, Oclobtr 1973 THE IEIHBRIDCE HKAID System for natural gas EDMONTON (CP) A two- pricc system for natural gas that would take Ihe lorm o! a rebate for .nil natural gas con- sumers in Alberta was recom- mended ycsSirday by Edmon- ton Mayor Ivor Dent. In a letter to Premier Pelcr Loughecd, Mayor Dent also ask- ed for an increase in royalties and urged a return lo the form- ula abandoned in 1970 where municipalities received one- 'Black mass' incidents repor ted TURIN, Italy (AP) Police said Thursday a fire in the Holy Shroud Chapel here might have been part of a "black mass" held in front of what Ro- man Catholics venerate as the burial cloth of Christ. They said the tiro which damaged the chapel altar last weekend was the latest in a series of strange incidents In Turin's churches and cemeter- ies. Investigation produced in dications of what police anc priests described as a black mass, a ritual involving wor ship of the Devil and dcfilinp of Christianity. Msgr. Jose Collino reportw that candlesticks were ar ranged in a special pattern an( oil was poured over Ihe alia and set a fire. Last year someone stole th1 skull of St. Domenico Savio, a 19th-century Italian, from hi coffin in the Church of St Massive gold and silve candlesticks and jewels offer ings around the coffin were no taken.

He lold a news conference a gnificant Increase in the price natural gas could cost Ed- more than increase in lonton residents any conceivable roperty taxes (or Ihe next 10 ears." He said the cily believes "the nlerests ol Albcrtans are not wing adequately presented at the hearings and the interests of as-exporting companies arc >cing listened lo to a far-great- r extent than other interests." A "significant net gas price ncrcase" could mean Edmon- on consumers would have lo lay twice as much to: their jas and M-per-eent more for lower Svithin three years. Mayor Dent said the cily be- ieves royalties should be dou- )led or tripled. The revenue from royalties, he added, should be distributed according to the principles set out in the 1966 Municipal As- sistance Act which gave one- hird of all royalties to the niun- cipalilies. He noled the rebate :o consumers would come from he province's two-tliirds sliare of Ihe royalties. Mayor bent, in his letter, said: "f am not satisfied wilh Ihe Energy Resources Conser- vation Board decision regard- 'ng field price of natural gas in Alberta which suggests a doubling of gas prices wilhin Ihe next 10 years." The Mayor's letter follows the city's appearance at energy board hearings in Calgary last week. Edmonton asked for con- tinued use o[ natural gas fo7 the generaton of eleclricly by Edmonton power and requested reserves of 2.3 trillion cubic feel of gas for city plants. At Ihe hearings, Aid. Alex Fal- low argued it is not in the public interest of Albertans to export nalu-al gas while forcing Alber- ta utililies to burn coal lo gen- erate clecLricily. Kananaskis paving won't damage area CALGARY (CP) Paving 30 miles of the Kananaskis fores- try road can be done without impairing the beauly of eco- logy of Ihe area, Highways Min- ister Clarence Copitliomc said Thursday. The work can be done on the norllicrn portion without adding substantial width lo the cur- rent road. Paving is lo begin at Secbe, alxml 50 miles west of Calgary, ar.d continue south about 10 miles each year of the three- stage project. Conservationists have urgued the project would involve ex- panded roadways and straigh- tening with detrimental results. Mr. Gopithorne said in a tele- phone interview from Edmon- ton that after construction vege- tation would be allowed to grow back to the edge of the road allowance.

Gas plants harm life KED DEER (CP) price paid for Ihe loss of health nnd of a quality environment may be much greater than the price of proper air pollution control, says Henry Lembicz of the Alberta Fish and Game As- sociation. He told a hearing of the Al- berta Environment Conserva- tion Authority tri't sulphur di- oxide gas from gas processing plants can, even in small quan- tities, harm animal and plant life. But technical advancement should provide a means lo stop pollution. The provinces strive to stim- ulate industries to create jobs and increase the circulation of money, he said. Yet, the same aims could be accomplished by building proper pollution-control facilities because this would re- more money and addition- El employment. "It may be that proper pollu- lion conlrol would slow down the development of our natural resources or curtail an increas- ing flow of finances yet Ihere is no proof that this ex- panding flow of money creales more happiness." Mr. Lembicz said the problem is not whether Ills country can afford pollution control, but whether it can afford not to cor- rect pollution problems. The United Slates lias made an-otlier concession to Arab and African opposition to its original effort to combat tlie type of crrorism that slaiixd I h c Olympic games In Munich. The latest example is a state department decision not to even uso the word "terrorism." The new Nixon administration preference, it has been learned, is [or such phrases as "acts of criminal Secretary iiogcrs gave privately Thursday to some 50 representatives of African nations attending the UN General Assembly. It is understood he told the Africans the problem is not political nor does the United Stales sec It in terms of any geographic region. Hather, Rogers Is said to have explained, Hie United States has in mind stopping against innocent civilians. Earlier, Rogers told protesting Arab and African leaders the American position did not lump violence by so-called na-lional liberation movements under the label of terrorism. This change was said to be part of a redefining of the American drive lo get a UN agreement imposing sanctions against countries not punishing position is in marked contrast to the public American stand immediately after Munich. Then the United States cast a rare veto o( a UN Security Council resolution because it did not directly link the Arab guerrilla attack on the Israeli Olympic team lo relalialory raids by Israel against Lebanon and Syria.

The word "terrorism" was used frequently and on the record by U.S. officials in describing the Municn raid ana lehre was no effort to avoW linking the attiudcs of Middle East stales toward UM Palestinian guerrillas u a main factor In the violence.
