Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wwlnwdiy, October 16, 1974-THE LETHBRIDQi HERALD Datellne Alberta Hospital fires probed CALGARY (CP) Police say a balding, middle aged man is being sought in connec- tion with three fires during the last week at the nurses residence at Foothills Hospital. The latest fire broke out in the basement of the residence about 3 a.m. Tuesday mor- ning. The other two fires were found at the same time of the morning last Tuesday and Friday.

'Insurance firms losing9 EDMONTON (CP) Alberta insurance companies are losing money on the province's drivers, say in- dustry spokesmen. Gary Connauton, a claims examiner for Canada West In- surance Co., said in an inter- view that losses on automobile insurance "are almost a fact of life." He said the company was discontinuing discounts to drivers of late model cars with impact protection bumpers because the bumpers were too expensive to repair. Jocelyn Tougher, an agent for P. J. Nault Insurance, says "the loss figures for July and August are with the most claims in the 16 to 21 year bracket. Company pleads innocent CALGARY (CP) A sub- sidiary of Gulf Oil Ltd. plead- ed not guilty Tuesday to a charge that it unlawfully employed a 16 year old ser- vice station attendent who was later murdered during an early morning armed robbery Service Ltd. was charged under a statute in the Alberta Labor Act which makes it il- legal to employ a person un- der the age of 18 years during the hours between midnight and 6 a.m. without adult supervision. The company was charged in connection with the employ- ment of John Joseph Berze who was brutally stabbed to death at a Calgary self serve service station Aug. 23. Three persons were charged with non capital murder in the case Game farm aid asked EDMONTON (CP) Former MP Hugh Harries has written to Premier Peter Lougheed asking that the province offer assistance to the financially troubled Alberta Game Farm.

Mr. Harries said it would be "a tragedy" if the game farm left the province. UNITED MOTORS CO. LTD.

Wayne Minion, the com- mission's chief, said in an interview that October sales of Alberta crude are about barrels a day below the province's capacity of almost 1.8 million barrels a day. Dr. Minion said the slack, which is occurring less than a year after the so called energy crisis, is due to the fact that U.S. refiners can reduce their monthly crude oil nominations at will. Contracts the refiners had with the commission were contracts of availability not volume contracts. U.S. refiners, particularly the independents, have lately received crude from the "ma- jors" in the industry for about a barrel compared with the Canadian price of to Dr. Minion said this is happening under U.S. federal energy administration provisions which direct the majors to make crude available to independent refiners at their average purchase prices. Medium and heavy crude sales had suffered the most. Dr. Minion said Alberta production will stay below capacity unless the marketing commission stimulates sales. "It is just too easy for refiners to cancel contracts." He said he hopes to come to terms with refiners by the end of the winter to stabilize Alberta crude sales to the U.S. He wouldn't say how this can be accomplished but did suggest that Alberta is still following traditional market place techniques in pricing and selling its oil. The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries, in contrast, set prices and sold crude oil by diplomatic and political means. It was questionable whether Alberta should con- tinue in the established pattern. Dr. Minion suggested that Alberta should perhaps follow the example of OPEC countries, who tell buyers to accept their crude oil nominations in full or risk the danger of being excluded from the list of desirable buyers. Dr. Minion said various ways to stabilize Alberta's crude oil marketing will be discussed with the National Energy Board and the in- dustry. He also expects to visit Middle East oil producers in November to look at their marketing prac- tices. Montana briefs Clean-up work follows downtown Butte fire BUTTE, Mont. (AP) Clean up work got under way today following the fifth ma- jor fire in the city's old up- town business district. The- tire broke out Monday night and destroyed four businesses and damaged a fifth before it was brought un- der control. There was no firm estimate of the damage, but an infor- mal check of businessmen in- dicated losses to stock and property might exceed million. Ford gets Olympic coins HELENA, Mont. (AP) Kenneth Vandaele, 39, of Helena was taken into custody Monday night at his home without incident. Vandaele had been sought since Friday in connection with a shooting incident in a tavern that left one man dead and another injured. Continued search requested EDMONTON (CP) An Edmonton minister has petitioned the federal govern- ment to continue the search for a helicopter with three men aboard, missing since Sept. 22 in northwestern Alberta. Rev Sydney Bell of St. Andrew's United Church sent a petition of nearly 200 names to Edmonton MP Marcel Lambert and Defence Minister James Richardson. THERE'S STILL TIME TO VOTE W. VAUGHN by Vaughn Hembroff Independent Candidate for City WASHINGTON (CP) President Ford accepted a gift of Canadian Olympic Games coins in a ceremony at the White House Tuesday. However, he picked the wrong season on this occasion. Accepting the presentation set from Ambassador Marcel Cadieux, the United States president said: "I think it's great that Can- ada has undertaken the Olym- pics.

Trade to be major part of Trudeau's ECM talks By BOB DOUGLAS OTTAWA (CP) Trade will play a major role in Prime Minister Trudeau's talks with top French and European Common Market (ECM) officials next week as the government continues ef- forts to balance American economic influence in Canada. Government sources told a news briefing Tuesday that the prime minister's visit to Paris and Brussels is part of a "re-emphasis on the Western European relationship." This trip and later visits to the United Kingdom, Italy, West Germany and the Netherlands are part of Ot- tawa's policy of "paying increased attention to future activities with countries other than the United they said. This was not intended as anti-Americanism but only to balance American political and economic influence on the country. The prime minister and Mrs. Trudeau leave Saturday, morning for the Canadian forces base in Lahr, West Ger- many, and spend Sunday there before travelling to Paris Monday. He will meet Monday and Tuesday with French Presi- dent Valery Giscard d'Estaing and Prime Minister Jacques Chirac before leaving Wednes- day for Brussels. The prime minister will meet Belgian Prime Minister Leo Tindemans and the Euro- pean Community Commission before returning to Ottawa Friday. Government sources say there has been a definite melt- ing of the chill which fell on relations between Canada and France after former president Charles de Gaulle's famous cry of "vive le Quebec Hfere" in Montreal in 1967. Former prime minister Les- ter Pearson said at the time the French president's remarks were "unaccep- table" and Mr. de Gaulle returned home immediately. The discussions with Mr. Giscard d'Estaing and Mr. Chirac would stress trade between the two countries. Proposals for a bilateral trade agreement with the European community would probably be discussed in Brussels. While trade between Canada and France is growing rapidly and now amounts to million a year, it still represents 'only one per cent of the export markets of the two countries. Trade Minister Alastair Gil- lespie recently told a French trade mission in Ottawa that "this is not good enough under the circumstances." Canada had a deficit of more than million in trade with France in 1973. The top Canadian export was wood pulp while the major French item was alcoholic beverages. The prime minister is ex- pected to discuss a Canadian proposal for a bilateral trade agreement with the ECM dur- ing his Brussels visit, an idea studied this week at a meeting of the European council of ministers, the political group governing the common market.

She said in an interview it was "absolutely essential" that the board be allowed to recommend government ac- tion when needed. "Otherwise, what's the Mrs. Plumptre was com- menting on statements made by former consumer affairs minister Herb Gray, who told the Commons recently that the government apparently was trying to trim the board's powers. The throne speech said only that the board's mandate would be renewed "so that it may continue to report regularly on trends in food prices and analyse the reasons for price changes in specific areas." Bat Mr. Gray said that reference left out the provi- sion that "in reporting its fin- dings it can make n datins for action by the government and by the private sector." A spokesman for newly-ap- pointed Consumer Affairs Minister Andre Ouellet said the government had no inten- tion of limiting the board's current powers. While the government had not acted on all the board's recommendations during the last year, it paid attention-to the board's reports. One example of government action was the implementing of a two-price wheat program quickly after it was suggested by the food board to protect Canadian consumers from international price increases for bread wheat Saskatchewan cancels advertising MOOSE JAW, Sask. (CP) Saskatchewan's ,3New Democratic Party govern- ment has cancelled 75 per cent of its advertising with the Times Herald for the dura- tion of a strike by composing room and press room employees.
