Alberta's biggest worry is spending its money New York Times Service EDMONTON, Alberta At a time when most governments, at every level, are struggling hard to stay solvent, Alberta, which produces 83 per cent of Canada's oil, has more money than it knows what to do with. Because of recent increases in the price of oil, Alberta is now accumulating extra' royalties at the rate of nearly billion a year. The province's Premier, Peter Lougheed, is appealing to Albertans for suggestions about how to spend the money, most of which comes ultimately from con- sumers in the United States. "I consider it desirable to have the benefit of the views of each of you in- dividually, either in writing or directly, the Premier said a few weeks ago in a to a group of businessmen in Calgary "We're not going to be pressured into any quick he promised. "It will be at least a year before any signifi- cant investment decisions are made." In the meantime, the province is active- ly shifting the money in and out of short term bank notes, bonds and common stocks, and getting an average return of 10.9 per cent on it, according to Gordon T. W. Miniely, the Treasurer. "Now that we've become a major factor in Canada's capital markets, we're assess- ing our cash flow on and up to the minute Miniely explained. Every day, besides what they earning in interest, government financial analysts have an average of between million and million of new money to invest, as Alberta crude oil flows steadily toward Eastern Canada and the United States. From scores of wells scattered all over its rolling range land, Alberta draws 1.6 million barrels of oil a day. One year ago, the basic wellhead price was a barrel; now it is 96.50 and under the theory that the people of Alberta own the resources, two thirds of that windfall increase is going to the provincial government. There is also a surcharge of several more dollars on the oil that is exported to the United States, bringing the price paid by Americans up to the fluctuating world market level. But that charge, in the form of an export tax, does not have so concentrated an impact on Alberta, because it is collected by the national government in Ottawa, which spreads it through Eastern Canada in subsidies to Canadians who are importing oil from overseas There is no sales or inheritance tax in Alberta, and the province is also offering an increasing number of educational and social services to its 1.7 million people. For example, Albertans over the age of 65 benefit from an unusually broad health- care program, in which even glasses and hearing aids are free. A delighted young father in Calgary reported: "I sent a check to my kid's nursery school and they sent it back, explaining that the province had taken over that charge." Aggressive role needed VANCOUVER (CP) Canada Manpower should adopt a more aggressive role in co-ordinating social ser- vices to communities, delegates to a conference of Manpower's Outreach program recommended as the five-day conference ended over the weekend. Outreach is a Manpower sponsored program which provides funds for groups to hire workers to provide jobs, training and community development.

The newspaper says the report, prepared for an all party legislative committee, suggests the Lougheed government has escaped public accountability in the way it passes some 300 sets of regulations a year. It calls for restrictions on clauses in legislation that give the Cabinet power to over ride laws already approved by the Legislature. The report also seeks a revamping of Alberta's system of recording the hundreds of government regulations so the public has convenient access to the Cabinet passed rules, says the newspaper. MP wants tough laws HARRISON HOT SPRINGS, B.C. (CP) Liberal Member of Parlia- ment Simma Holt is critical of federal Justice Minister Otto Lang for proposing that the penalty for people who import marijuana into Canada be lowered. Mrs Holt Kingsway) told a luncheon meeting in this Community 60 miles east of Vancouver that the government should increase penalties for drug pushers. While new regulations are printed twice monthly in the official Alberta Gazette, no over all consolidation of the regulations has been prepared since at least 1957. The all party legislative committee, headed by Conser- vative MLA Rusty Zander of Drayton Valley, is expected to submit its report to the fall session of the House, which opens Oct. 23. The Journal says the report could bolster arguments which Social Credit and New Democratic Party opposition intend to raise during the ses- sion over the Lougheed government's use of Cabinet regulations to take over Pacific Western Airlines and the government's ability to confer power on the Regional Commissioner for Northeastern Alberta NDP leader Grant Notley has called the method used to buy PWA an "unbelievable abuse of Cabinet power it short circuits the Legislature and gives only a few elected representatives the power io make decisons which will affect every single Albertan." Former Premier Harry Strom called the measure that created the Northeast Com- missioner's post "an un- precedented erosion of the legislative powers." Virtually every law passed by the legislature contains a section allowing the provin- cial Cabinet to pass ad- ditional, more detailed, regulations to facilitate ad- ministration of the law, said the newspaper. For example, the Cabinet set the actual royalty levy on oil that will bring in million in resource revenue this year It was left to the Cabinet to decide through regulations that a particular driving offence under the highway traffic act should count six demerit points.
