Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 4, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September 'Energy for 21st century today's challenge9 OTTAWA (CP) Canadians early in the 21st century may rely on energy sources that include geother- mal and solar power, as well as synthetic gas and oil produced from coal, a scien- tist said Tuesday at the 10th Commonwealth Mining and Metallurgical Congress. A.E. Pallister of Calgary, vice-chairman of the Science Council of Canada, presented a scenario of the country's possible energy future early in the next century that included the following: British Columbia: Hydro power, natural gas and geotherrnal power; the Prairies: Coal as a direct source and as a source of synthetic gas, together with oil from the Athabasca oil sands; Ontario and Quebec: Nuclear energy, hydro power, oil from the oil sands, oil and gas from frontier areas of the Arctic, gas from prairie coal gasification plants and syn- thetic oil; the Atlantic provinces: Oil and gas from the continen- tal shelf, supplemented by nu- clear power and by hydro electricity in Newfoundland and Labrador; Canada: Solar energy as an increasingly im- portant complementary source of energy for space and water heating. If this scenario is to have any feasibility, however, there are technological capabilities which have yet to be developed in Canada, said Mr. Pallister, a geophysicist and president of Pallister Resource Management Con- sultants. These include the capability to use geothermal energy and to gasify Canadian coals, he said. Also needed was the capability to develop the Athabasca oil sands below 150 feet and the capability to use solar energy. In the meantime, Canadians "have a couple of challenges just to get us into the next cen- he said. Needed for this was an ex- panded capability to develop oil and gas supplies from the high Arctic and an expanded capability in the country's nuclear program to offset Brewers apply for price hike CALGARY (CP) Peter Elliott, chairman of the Alberta Liquor Control Board, said Tuesday three Alberta breweries have applied for an increase in the price of beer sold through liquor stores. Mr. Elliott said Labatt's, Molson, and Carling O'Keefe breweries made the application in July and said an independent auditors report on the application is now before the provincial cabinet. Three breweries are stockpiling beer at their breweries as about 200 delivery truck drivers continue their strike against the delivery company which handles the beer produced by the companies. The strike began late last week and has resulted in the complete emptying of ALCB beer supplies. A. J. Fitzgerald, general manager of Calgary's Carling O'Keefe brewery, said the three companies asked for the price increase after an application to raise prices was rejected by the government this spring. Mr. Fitzgerald said he did not know whether the price increase would now be granted but said if a price hike occured at the same time as the strike was settled "it would be coincidental." Production is continuing at the Calgary Brewery operated by Carlings. Production has been doubled at the only plant which still has an operating transportation system Uncle Ben's Tartan Brewery at Red Deer. The non union delivery system owned by millionaire industrialist Ben Ginter of Prince George. B.C.. has been swamped with orders particularly from taverns which are without regular beer supplies. A brewery spokesman said "We will serve our old customers first and if there is any left over we will try to fill the orders." dwindling crude oil supplies. "In parallel we will need a significant improvement in our capability and in our determination to use energy efficiently and to eliminate a substantial amount of the waste from the present system." Curious gathering for Knievel river jump TWIN FALLS, Idaho (AP) The 200 toilets are in'place, but the Sky-Cycle has yet to be pointed skyward and the Evel Knievel Museum is no more than an unpainted frame in a field of dust. It is five days before Evel Knievel attempts to hurl him- self over the Snake River Can- yon, and the curious are gathering. Richard Frederich, 23, and his 21-year-old wife, Jan, drove a day and a half from Mascoutah. 111., and paid each for the privilege of spending nights between now and Sunday in a former cow pasture. "We've got a bet that he makes Frederich says. "We've been planning to come ever since he said he'd jump the Grand Canyon a couple of years ago." The 'he' on everyone's mind is a 34-year-old motorcycle stuntman from Butte, Mont., who has manoeuvred himself into the deal of his lifetime, million-plus to ride a needle- thin rocket over feet of space. "He's gotta be about the ga- mest dude there ever says Larry Bennett, a Dallas, Tex., truck driver who came to watch the jump and hired on as a security guard at an hour.

But there was much expectation that the lower prices would not hold, and pasta disappeared from the stores and markets. Retailers were accused of hoarding and housewives of stocking up. "Pasta was the only cheap thing there was." said Maria de Biase. a widow. "Now they want to cut that to pieces, too." Carmela di Criscita says her husband, a construction worker, earns S5 a day and it all goes to buy pasta and bread for their 13 children. The 2.5 million Neapolitans eat an average of 22 pounds of pasta a month, compared with 6.6 pounds in the industrial city of Turin. The Neapolitans say the poverty of the city is one reason why they depend so heavily on pasta.

Carmen gathers strength to regain hurricane status MERIDA, Mexico (AP) Tropical storm Carmen was expected to regain hurricane strength today as it drifted slowly westward across the open waters of the Gulf of Campeche between the Yucatan peninsula and the Mexican mainland. The storm's 175-mile-an- hour winds decrease to about 60 miles an hour as it crossed Yucatan. It remained stationary for several hours Tuesday just west of Campeche. But forecaster Paul Hebert of the U.S. National Hurricane Centre in Miami commented: "It's not a question of whether Carmen will become a hurricane again, it's a matter of when." A storm becomes a hurricane when its sustained winds reach 74 m.p.h. Because of Carmen's slow movement, heavy rains and gale winds continue along the west coast of Yucatan and around Merida, in the northwest part of the penin- sula. Hard rains, high tides and strong winds also were predicted for the coasts of Tabasco and Veracruz states, on the southern and western sides of the Gulf of Campeche. Carmen did severe damage to the town of Chetumal. on the east coast of Yucatan, but no deaths were reported there or inland. So far the storm's only reported casualties have been three persons drowned last weekend in Jamaica. Meanwhile, the Miami hurricane centre was watching another disturbance that was increasing in strength and threatening to become a tropical storm in the Atlantic Ocean. The tropical depression was located 450 miles west of Ber- muda and moving north-north- west at about 15 m.p.h. It was expected to turn north and in- crease its strength. Life miserable for poisoning victims TOKYO (AP) Dressed in a kimono far too big for her wasted body and clutching a doll, Kumiko Matsunaga smil- ed wanly for the photographer on her 20th birthday. For young Japanese, becoming 20 is an event, an occasion for celebration. Jan. 15 each year is a national holi- day to mark "Coming of Age Day" for the several million youths who have reached that milestone. But Kumiko had no future. In 1956. at the age of five, she had been stricken by mercury poisoning said to have been caused by the wastes from a chemical firm in her native Minamata, a town in Kyushu, the southernmost main Japanese island. On her 20th birthday, in 1971, her hands and feet were distorted, she was bedridden, and she weighed little more than a child, 46 pounds. On Aug. 25 this year, 18 years after her travail began, she died in a Minamata hospital of pneumonia. Within a few hours on the same day, 34-year-old Masajiro Hiraki, also being treated for the effects of mercury poisoning, died too. Newspapers said their deaths brought to 100 the number of Minamata suf- ferers who had died since 1954. The waste mercury poured into Minamata Bay through the factory's sewage system and was gulped into the digestive systems of fish Revisions planned to cleanse Mao's works of Confucianisms Special to The Herald PEKING The gospel of Chinese communism, the se- lected works of Chairman Mao. may soon be revised to remove a number of approv- references to the ideological guiding spirit of an earlier age. the ancient sage Confucius.
