But the dispute appeared as far as ever from settlement. Otto Lang, minister responsi- ble for the Canadian wheat board, said outside the House he was on the brink of dropping the bill, which contains two major provisions: of the Temporary Wheat Reserves Act and pay- ment to wheat farmers of S100 million in lieu of reserves-act payments due since July 31, 1971. of a fund supported by the government and farmers, from which farm- record ers would draw when the Bridges said, were 50 men, 16 women and 14 children.

The amendments defeated with Liberals out- have linked pay- ments from the fund to the in- dustry production cosls and would have raised the over-all level of payments. Conservative House Leader Gerald Baldwin said he was shocked and amazed at govern- ment accusations of opposition obstruction. The opposition was pursuing its duty to point out flaws in leg- islation. As a way out of the stale- mate, he suggested the govern- ment make both the payments required under the reserves act and the million replace- ment payments. Then the government could reassess the bill, taking account of opposition, industry and farmer criticisms. Meanwhile, Mr. Lang issued statements attacking the opposi- tion for what he called its mind- less filibuster. He said interested parlies and the opposition ran out of con- structive criticism long ago.

We need large volumes of crude and natural gas in order o supply the increasing demand or said the former chairman of the Canadian Pe- roleum Association board of jovernors. "In Canada, we haven't been 'hiding oil and gas as fast as we :ould, especially in the last sev- eral years. We have plenty or Canadian requirements but we can't afford to go too long without any discoveries because our own fields begin to de- plete." Mr. Nielsen, also a director of the Toronto Dominion Bank, d- :n't believe the potential for oil and gas has been exhausted in Western Canada. "We still have a lot of oppor- tunity in west-central Alberta and northeastern British Colum bia, although from this point it's going to be harder to find. Discussing the North, he said: "That's a wide open country Serious drilling has only taken place in the last two or three years. We've got all kinds o( opportunity up there to fine large reserves." SEES HIGHER PRICES The 46-year-old former geolo- gist says the price of energy is going to increase "as it gets more difficult to deal with the Middle East countries and, as we move into higher uni' costs." Mr. Nielsen, from Standard, Alta., is opposed strict foreign- investment guidelines because he believes they would have serious effect on exploration ac- tivity. Canada and particularly Al berta and Saskatchewan neet foreign investment, he said. Ex penses in the oil exploration field were so great that only companies with broad financia' backing could lake the risks. "Foreign investment ha: given a lot of opportunity to a lot of people in Canada. We're just one company that is basically foreign-owned, b u which is primarily staffed by Canadians who now are in a good position in life due to for- eign investment." Mobil Oil Canada Ltd. is a subsidiary of Mobil Oil Corp. of New York. The federal government's pro- posed tax-reform program, en- vironmental discussions and the market situation for oil were other problems facing the indus- try.
