Nonetheless, this con- ciliatory tone was given a tinge of warning Friday when State Secretary Henry Kissinger held his first news conference since the war started a week ago today. The United States, Kissinger said, does not con- sider that Soviet actions in the Middle East as of now con- stitute irresponsibility. Even in areas where Kissin- ger said the Russians have not been as their en- couragement of other Arab states to support Egypt and Syria and their arms shipments to Cairo and indicated a guarded tolerance. As to the arms shipments. Kissinger said: "The Soviet airlift, at this moment, is moderate and it has to be addressed in rela- tion to the possibility of in- fluencing immediate military operations." U.S. officials said the secre- tary was indicating his view that the Soviet shipments have not yet threatened the Middle East military balance. Kissinger indicated that U S. supplies of arms to Israel will be limited for the mo- ment to ammunition rather than tanks and planes. In spite of this moderate tone, Kissinger interspersed veiled warnings throughout his news conference. While the Russians have not yet shown major irrespons- ibility, he said, "when that point is reached, we will in this crisis, as we have in other crises, not hesitate to take a firm stand." Soviet airlift provides weapons .C. requests gas from Alberta VICTORIA fCP) A team of B.C. government officials was in Calgary Friday, dis- cussing with Alberta the feasibility of bringing natural gas into British Columbia to help the province through a forecast 10-percent shortage this winter Attorney-General Alex Macdonald said today the B.C government has "waited in vain" for more than a week for some action by Ottawa to help avert the gas shortage, which could hit as soon as Monday. He criticized Energy Minister Donald Macdonald for "'hurrying down to Argen- tina" to be Canada's represen- tative at the swearing in of the new president. Juan Peron, while B C waits for action on the gas crisis Officials were in Calgary, he said, examining the possibility of bringing Alberta gas through the ZAMA link between B.C. and Alberta gas fields in the north. But, he said, it would be January at least before gas could flow and it would cost 10 cents a thousand cubic feet more than B.C gas now is. "We've waited in vain for quite a few days Time is run- ning out on the matter. It would be travedy." Westcoast Transmission Ltd.. the sole supplier of gas in B.C., has said there will be an average cutback of 120 million cubic feet a day for five months this winter, because there is too much water in gas the company buys from fields in northeastern B C. and the Northwest Territories. B C. wants the National Energy- Board to reduce ex- ports by Westcoast to El Paso Natural Gas Co which buys 70 per cent of the pipeline company's daily flow, while Westcoast has gone ahead with plans to impose a pro- rated cutback on all its buyers. Meanwhile, a spokesman for Alberta Gas Trunk Line Co. Ltd.. of Calgary, said Thursday its wholly-owned subsidiary, Pan-Alberta Gas Ltd., is willing to supply B.C. with natural gas at cost plus transportation charges The spokesman said Pan-Al- berta owns more than enough surplus gas to cover B.C.'s ex- pected shortage this winter. The offer was made to Westcoast Transmission and B.C.'s three major gas dis- tributors, all of which are supplied from Westcoast. Westcoast and two of the distributors refused to com- ment today on the offer but the third distributor. Pacific Northern Gas Ltd announced it had refused the offer. The president of Pacific Northern Gas said the com- pany is not interested in the offer because there is no energy shortage in its system. Ronald Rutherford ad- mitted his company, which distributes gas between Prince George, B.C. and Prince Rupert, B.C.. is a for- tunate distributor because close to 90 per cent of its cus- tomers are industrial. And its largest buyer, Canadian Cellu- lose at Prince Rupert, is accessible by oil from tankers, he said. James Rhodes, chairman of the B.C. energy commission, expressed hope the proposal might be acceptable and said the energy commission is "shaking the nuts and bolts of it to see if it can be put together." Mr. Rhodes said another plan is also being studied that 'Gas plan poses industry problems' VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia government's plan to take an OFFERING THE FINEST MONUMENTS IN THE WORLD BY CRAFTSMEN WHO CARE Southern Monument HAS BROUGHT TO Lethbridge and Southern Alberta The Age Old Art of Sculptured Designing Monuments Carved and Sculptured for People who care enough to want the finest workmanship Carved and Sculptured by Master Craftsmen in our Lethbridge Plant SERVING SOUTHERN ALBERTA Southern Monument Co. on 13th St. North Across From Simpsons Centre.
